Phantasy Star III Generations of Doom Ignores Classic Formula on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – July 25th, 1991

Phantasy_Star_III_Generations_Doom_Sega_Genesis_RPG

When the Sega Genesis was released, Sega was pretty much operating on a clean slate with most of the fans that bought it.  Their previous console, the Sega Master System was not much more than a cult hit in the United States (while it rocked in other countries).  This was due to a lot of […]

Sonic_Hedgehog_Mania_25th_Anniversary_Playstation_PS4_Xbox_one_PC_Steam

Sega is apparently regaining their wits as they have just announced a brand new 2D Sonic the Hedgehog game.  What in the world is going on?  While I am not the biggest fan of Sonic the Hedgehog I can say I am impressed with what is shown in this trailer that Sega just released for […]

If you think about Electronic Arts (EA) for a moment, forget their current, horrendous, Digital Rights Management (DRM) antics and focus on their past they were quite good.  EA were great at picking the right games to publish and developing some cool games of their own.  I mean, come on, look at their Sega Genesis […]

Sega, a company that many of us simply wish was still around in the console world, is alive in the digital/3rd party world.  At least they have not forgotten their roots is a saying you may hear a lot with regard to Sega.  The problem is, they kind of have.  That is a discussion for […]

Retro City Rampage is one of those modern games that attempts to rip off the classic “retro” look.  It is intentionally developed using minimalistic graphics and sound/music.  A lot of developers feel this is the route to take to make their game stand out.  Unfortunately, a lot of developers are forgetting to make their games […]

Batman_Sega_Genesis_Sunsoft_retro_retrogaming

Batman has always been a hot commodity in gaming.  The majority of games based on the caped crusader are good.  This is a contradiction to licensed games in general though as most are horrible, particularly those based on movies.  The Sega Genesis version doesn’t follow the movie 100% to a “T” but there is a […]

Sega were once known for their arcade games.  This genre was what they used to battle Nintendo until Sonic was released on the Genesis.  Even after the blue guy was released arcade ports were a strong category for Sega’s consoles.  This was no more apparent than on their Saturn console that was able to give […]

Nintendo_64_Disk_Drive_Developent_Kit_Ebay

The Nintendo 64 Disk Drive, aka N64 DD, was never released in North America but did see a very limited release in Japan.  The limited release in Japan was not because Nintendo didn’t make enough- apparently they made 100,000 units available but only sold 15,000 of them over a 14 month period.  Along with the […]
