Wacky Wednesday: A Most Illegal Game

Scales

For all the furor that erupts over the release of a game that “crosses the line” in the United States, full bans are never the end result. At most you see the occasional recall (see: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas over the unfinished “Hot Coffee” content) or the ESRB threatening an Adults Only rating to prevent it […]

Street Fighter Alpha 3 Flawlessly Ends Trilogy of Arcade Games – Today in Retro Gaming – June 29th, 1998

Street_Fighter_Alpha_3_III_Capcom_Arcade

It is not like Capcom to simply release a fighting game and not milk it somehow.  We saw this with Street Fighter II which has many updates, all of which were additional full purchases, on Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Maybe they realized fans were not going to go for that forever by the time […]

So Bad It’s Good: Run Like Hell (And Grab Your Bawls)

RLH PS2 box

A guy travelling through space arrives at his intended destination to discover nearly everyone on board is dead, and his love interest is missing. Occasionally with the help of a partner, but usually all by himself, he proceeds through the levels in third-person perspective, solving puzzles, reading other people’s e-mail, upgrading his arsenal, and destroying aliens […]

So Bad It’s Good – Dark Summit Rocked the Slopes

Dark Summit Box

If you ask someone to name a great snowboarding game from the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube generation, the only one that should come to mind for any normal person will have ‘SSX’ somewhere in the title. Anyone who’s first response is Dark Summit, published by THQ in 2001, isn’t in full possession of his faculties. Evidence for this […]

Shadow of the Colossus Atari 2600 Revived After Hardware Crash

Shadow of the Colossus Atari 2600 retrogaming retro game Atari Age Bandit Gaming (3)

A while back I covered the Atari 2600 port of Shadow of the Colossus by AtariAge member, “Ultima”.  Since I last covered Shadow of the Colossus for the Atari 2600 there has been a hardware crash that cost Ultima all of his previous code.  Since then he has gone back to the drawing board and […]

Revenge of the License: Densha de Go! Series

Densha de Go Professional 2 Box

Here’s a new twist for this column. Instead of looking at a game that takes its inspiration from a comic, film, television show, cartoon, or book, today I’m going to look at a series which licenses its game play from the best source on Earth: real life. In this case, miles and miles of railroad […]

Rockbot Review, Fanmade Mega Man Game Rocks

Rockbot_PSP_Mega_Man_Upperland (3)

Okay, it is pretty clear that Capcom are transitioning down with their new IPs and rebooting of classic titles.  That is bad news for everyone but Street Fighter fans, which apparently writes checks in its sleep.  Well, there is a dedicated group of fans that are not content with letting Capcom’s blue bomber sit idly […]

Today in Gaming History: Aggressive Inline or Tony Hawk’s Eight-Wheeled Skater

15940_front

Thirteen years ago on August 23, 2002 a game that was very near and dear to my heart as a teenager, Aggressive Inline made its debut. Well technically, that’s when the Xbox version was released. In the United Kingdom and Germany. I had the American PlayStation 2 version which was released on May 29 of […]

Tony and Me: My Favorite Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Memories

TonyHawksProSkaterPlayStation1

The year was 1999 and I was in eighth grade. Pizza Hut ran a promotion. You buy a pizza and you get one of two PlayStation demo discs, each containing demos of upcoming games. I cannot remember nine of the ten games (although I think Ape Escape and Sled Storm were among them), but I […]

Five Games You Need the Japanese Version to Fully Enjoy

Michigan JP box

It’s not news to say the Japanese get tons of stuff the rest of the world doesn’t, but at least they throw non-Asian gamers a bone every now and then. Usually this is in the form of a simple port, where all the text is translated and (hopefully) localized for the target market. This localization process […]
