Mario_Bros_Famicom_Disk_System_Nintendo_Fan_Translation

Famicom Disk System Mario Bros Translated to English

The original Mario Bros game is iconic, if not a little archaic compared to the later games.  With that iconic status comes the fact that Nintendo keeps it alive and well periodically.  From the original release in arcades and the obvious parade around the console world of the time to seeing release in some form […]

5 Mortal Kombat Ports You Won’t Care to Play

Mortal Kombat.  You either love it or wonder what all of the fuss is about.  There were a couple of eye catching differences when it hit arcades.  First, the graphics, these were not hand drawn cartoon characters like Street Fighter II.  Second, you could literally, positively, END your opponent after winning the fight.  The fact […]

Japan Catches Pac-Man Fever – Today in History – May 21st, 1980

Where were you today in 1980?  Myself, I was probably fumbling around the backyard and trying to learn to tie my own shoes.  I was four years old.  I would not find out about Pac-Man for a few more years when I was exposed to it on the Atari 2600.  It would be several years […]

5 Games that are Too Much Game for the Hardware

Gaming has always been about pushing the boundaries of the hardware.  Whether it was 3D on the Sega Saturn or too many sprites on screen at one time in Gradius III on the Super Nintendo, developers have consistently pushed the envelope.  Sometimes these are awesome games such as Star Fox on SNES but other times they […]

New 3D Dreamcast Engine Coming Soon

The Sega Dreamcast, Sega’s last console, has certainly been one that fans simply won’t let die.  We have seen many homebrew and indie releases for the Sega Dreamcast.  We have seen source engine ports over the years thanks to companies like id Software releasing the source code to key software.  One such key piece of […]

Piko Interactive’s Broken Circle on Steam Greenlight

When you think of new games for old platforms you may think of hacks or illegal reproductions of rarer titles.  Piko Interactive do not partake in either of those, rather they purchase the rights to the games, fix them and in many cases, finish them.  After all of that, Piko releases the game to the […]

Dorke and Ymp Has Been Eerily Greenlit on Steam

It is no secret that I am a fan of Piko Interactive and their continued work in keeping the retro gaming community with new games to play.  They have been doing this for years, acquiring the rights to unreleased games, finishing them and releasing them as they were intended.  Sometimes we get these games on […]

Wild Guns Reloaded Exclusive Coming to Playstation 4 Showing E3 2016

When you think of classic retro titles to bring back for modern consoles, what do you think of?  If you are Natsume you apparently think it is time to reboot Wild Guns.  I have to agree, this is a great title to reboot and update for the modern console generation.  This is good news if […]

Centipede, Missile Command Movies Coming

When you think of classic games that could make interesting movies, do you think of a horror themed Pac-Man?  What about a whip wielding adventure ala Pitfall?  I bet Centipede and Missile Command are not high on your list of potential movie candidates.  Well, they are on the list for Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and they have […]

Bug_Sega_Saturn_May_11th_1995_retro_retrogaming_gaming

Don’t Squash that Bug! On Sega Saturn – Today in History – May 11th, 1995

Sega.  A company that is held close to many a gamer’s heart.  A company that used to be awesome.  A company that only once almost became the bride instead of the bridesmaid of gaming.  They were SO close SO many times to doing all things right that it is almost a running joke in retro […]
