Goodbye: Allgamers.fr Ceases Operations, Site Will Remain through 2015

Allgamers, a French gaming site that has truly been instrumental in the retrogaming world over the last six years, is ceasing operations- effective immediately.  This is a sad article for me to write but it is one that I feel should be written as we should all take a moment out of respect for a […]

Super Castlevania IV Reborn Super NES, SNES, Konami Famicom retro game retrogaming (1)

Bandit Gaming: Super Castlevania IV Reborn In Dire Straights

Okay, fan made games, homebrew, indie, whatever you call them, are sometimes cool.  Such as Super Castlevania IV Reborn, which was intended for various computer platforms.  While still in an early part of development, it is interesting to look at where Super Castlevania IV Reborn was heading.  This was basically a reworking of the original […]

New Game: Alice’s Mom’s Rescue Coming to Sega Dreamcast

The Sega Dreamcast is a system that, for most retro gaming fans, should not have been discontinued so quickly.  This is proven again and again every time a new game comes out for Sega’s final console- we are going on nearly a decade and a half since Sega pulled the plug.  HuCast Games is one […]

Jumping Flash Geograph Seal, Sony Playstation Exact retrogaming retro game

Gamers Discovered Fear of Heights in Jumping Flash on Playstation – Today in History – January 1st, 1996

When the Sony Playstation hit 19 years ago (come September 2015 it will be 20 years old) gamers really didn’t know what to expect.  Sony was not exactly known for great games, their software division had a few hits (Hook being one), probably not enough to sustain a new, break away from Nintendo, console.  In […]

Snatcher MSX2 December 13th 1988 retro digital comic visual novel retrogaming

Become a JUNKER in Neo Kobe City with Snatcher – Today in History – December 13th 1988

Snatcher is a game that, at the time of release in North America, was one of the first of a small genre which has not progressed much in the two plus decades since.  We covered Snatcher in our second issue of Retro Gaming Magazine, along with many other worthy titles.  While visual novels/digital comics are […]

Hellraiser

Wacky Wednesday – Hellraiser (NES)

Some things are such obviously bad ideas we don’t even bother considering them unless it’s a matter of life and death.  They aren’t things we have to consciously reject; without someone pointing them out, they’re not even going to pop up on our radar (which is why a guy can walk past a full sink […]

Aliens, Buxom Women, Fisticuffs, Round One with Criticom on Playstation: Today in History- November 29th, 1996

Today in retro gaming, we acknowledge the release of Kronos Digital’s not-so-gripping fighting game of not-so-epic proportions with an ad more exciting than the game it advertises.  How does this sort of thing keep happening? Like this:Like Loading…

Ikaruga X Texas Instruments TI-83 TI-84 Treasure Shooter

Bandit Gaming: Ikaruga Ported to the Texas Instruments TI-83 Graphing Calculator

Over 13 years ago when Treasure released Ikaruga to the world- well Japanese arcades and then the Sega Dreamcast- gamers were in awe of the graphics and challenge that Ikaruga posed.  Eventually the world got Ikaruga on the Nintendo Gamecube, Xbox Live and an enhanced version on Windows but what about those lowly retro systems […]

Elysian Shadows Steam Greenlit Sega Dreamcast

Update: Elysian Shadows is Greenlit, Will be Coming to Popular Distribution Service

It is no secret that Elysian Shadows is a popular game, part due to the fact that the developers are not scared to release on older platforms (Sega Dreamcast) that are fan favorites.  Along with the insight to release on a popular retro console, the developers are going to be hitting the Ouya (another Kickstarter […]
