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?

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 […]

Volgarr the Viking Xbox One Crazy Vikings Studios 2

New Game: Volgarr the Viking on Xbox One, PC, Mac Reminds Us of When Games Were Tough

It is no secret that Microsoft is kind of taking a beating with the Xbox One versus the Playstation 4 right now.  While there are many possible reasons for this, I like to think it is a case of lack of retro content available for the platform- Sony has their whole PSOne Classics catalog of […]

Hardware Hack: Sega Saturn to Receive SD Card Drive

Okay, the Sega Saturn, nearly a blacker sheep than the Sega 32X in many gamers minds, is finally getting some love from hardware hackers.  We have seen the Sega Dreamcast receive the bulk of the interest from hardware hackers in recent times while the Saturn just sits all lonely in its own corner of shame.  […]

Bandit Gaming: Day of the Tentacle Remake Unofficially in the Works

For most adventure game fans will know the name of this LucasArts classic.  Unofficially titled Maniac Mansion II, Day of the Tentacle was more of the original but with a much more focused storyline.  The original featured your choice of several characters, each bringing different abilities and their own twists to the storyline.  Day of […]

Splatterhouse Jennifer Smells of Rot Indiegogo game movie 3

Movie: Independent Splatterhouse Movie To See Production if Funded

The Splatterhouse series was an iconic set of games that sort of lost itself as time went on (most do). The first game, released on the Turbo Grafx-16 in North America showed that NEC weren’t all that keen on keeping lock step with what gamers were used to from the likes of Nintendo. Even Sega’s […]

5 Obscure 8-Bit Gaming Licenses You Don’t See Anymore

Licensing a celebrity, sports star, company and others are nothing new in gaming. I have seen many liceneses in gaming over the years. Movie stars, movies themselves, even commercials have made the jump to become a license for a game many times over. Most notably, licensing occurs in sports with each new iteration of whatever […]
