In the early 1990’s we saw the release of Street Fighter II a title that changed arcades till their last days.  Midway couldn’t stand idly by so they released a one on one fighting game that took things a few steps farther.  While Street Fighter II was a cartoon style game like most arcade games […]

Raiden Legacy Jumps to Steam, Still Missing Raiden II

Raiden is an overhead shooter that should require absolutely no introduction to gamers.  For the most part, it doesn’t.  There are a few, though, that don’t know about this iconic series.  One of the most challenging scrolling shooters of days gone by is here with several sequels.  Just they forgot one key sequel or this […]

New Game: Dokingan Reminds PC Gamers What Bullet Hell Shooters are like

New Game: Twin Tiger Shark for Windows Released
