Qix, the Game Where You Are Defenseless Hits the Game Boy – Today in History – May 24th, 1990

Tell a modern gamer that you want them to play a game where they are completely defenseless against enemies.  Also mention that you have no weapons at your disposal, at all.  Then bring up the beautiful fact that you must somehow reclaim large portions of the playfield to move to the next level.  Yes, I […]

This is just a rumor at this point, though it comes from Mike Kennedy- the man behind the Retro Video Game System, in an interview he did with VentureBeat.  Shovel Knight and Retro City Rampage are rumored to be possibly, somehow, coming to the Retro Video Game System, one of them could be a launch […]

Top Player’s Golf Raises the Watermark for Graphics, Sound and Animation on Neo Geo – Today in History – May 23rd, 1990

SNK, now SNK Playmore, were well versed in many genres of gaming prior to their launching of their own console.  The SNK Neo Geo was originally an arcade unit that allowed arcade owners to simply swap out cartridges, much like home consoles, and maybe just maybe swap out the marquee graphics (most just used the […]

Atari Announces the Atari 7800 – Today in History – May 21st, 1984

We can sit here all day and play the “what if” game, especially when it comes to Atari and their antics throughout gaming history.  For one, their Atari 7800 console was announced today, in 1984 but wasn’t released till sometime in 1986.  How might things have been different had Atari launched, and pushed, the 7800 […]

Mystery of Oak Island Kickstarter is a Success

The creators of Zak McKracken Between Time and Space, Visionaire Studios, are working on their next game, Mystery of Oak Island.  Our friends over at Indie Retro News covered Zak McKracken Between Space and Time here, for those interested in knowing more about it.  That Zak McKracken title slipped under my radar (there are only […]

Retro Freak Console Update, Now with Pics

A while back we covered the Retro Freak console, a platform that will apparently offer owners access to no less than 11 consoles and hand helds of the past.  In that original post there was only a piece of concept art available, now there have been a few more pieces of concept art made available.  […]

Alex Kidd in Miracle World Modded to Become Radaxian Rumble for Sega Master System

The Sega Master System is one of those consoles that was better than it is perceived to be by the gaming audience.  Take off the Nintendo Entertainment System colored glasses and look at the SMS with a clear head and you will see it gets a worse rap than it deserves.  While the game library […]

Silent Hill Lives on in Half Life 2 through Alchemilla Mod with Oculus Rift Option

Silent Hill is one of those franchises that appeared during the 32-Bit Sony Playstation days that simply has not died, at least till recently.  Konami recently announced that the new Silent Hill title is more than likely not going to see the light of day (in Silent Hill, was there really any light?).  The horror […]

Film Noir Gaming Brings Cyber Punk Action Shadowrun to the Super Nintendo – Today in History – May 1st 1993

Shadowrun was an interesting title for the Super Nintendo (Sega’s version is COMPLETELY different).  Partly because it predated their “Play it Loud” campaign by a full year, even though it had quite mature elements to it (for starters your guy just got axed/murdered/is dead).  Shadowrun is also unique in that it was a cyber punk […]
