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 […]

Super Mario Bros 2 Hits the Nintendo Entertainment System- Today in History: April 28th 1989

Nintendo was still new to the sequel rituals when they released Super Mario Bros 2 on the NES, and boy did they go away from the norm for what a sequel was supposed to be.  Being almost a complete departure from the original NES title, in Japan the title used for the US SMB2 was […]

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest Creeps onto the Nintendo Entertainment System- Today in History: April 27th, 1990

Taking place seven years after the original Castlevania, this installment takes a rather large departure from what fans knew from the first title.  Simon is on a pilgrimage to visit his family’s resting place and meets a lady that tells him that Dracula has placed a curse on the Belmont family (bummer).  Unlike the first […]

WildSnake for Sega Game Gear Found and Digitally Preserved

Being a fan of retrogaming sometimes has its better than average benefits.  For instance, it has recently been announced that a prototype for WildSnake on the Sega Game Gear has been found and has been digitally preserved by the team over at SMS Power.  Up till now, WildSnake was an unreleased game on the Sega […]

Disney Done Right on Sega Genesis

Disney games are some of the most popular with publishers, nearly as valuable to a game publisher as the coveted hit movie license.  During the heyday of the 16-Bit generation there was more than just a slight competition going on for your platform to have the best Disney games.  Sega, Capcom, Sony, Virgin and others […]

Psychonauts was the Game that Wouldn’t Die – Today in History – April 19th, 2005

To say that Psychonauts had a storied development would be kind of an understatement.  What started out in the wild world of the classic LucasArts title Full Throttle expanded, nearly died and was revived again by the hands of one man.  Tim Schafer.  What became Psychonauts was originally to be a drug filled romp through […]

RETRO Video Game System and the Looming Identity Crisis Within

I have covered the RETRO Video Game System (RETRO VGS) several times here on Retro Gaming Magazine in the recent past.  This is a purportedly new “retro” themed console in development.  The RETRO VGS is co-headed by Mike Kennedy, also founder of RETRO Magazine, which is expected to expand the overall scope of the RETRO […]

Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict Brings Arena Style 3D Shooting to Xbox – Today in History – April 18th, 2005

The original Xbox was not exactly the barn burning success that Microsoft had hoped it would be.  That did not stop plenty of exclusive games, most First Person Shooters (FPS), from appearing on the console.  One such console exclusive was Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict by Midway and Epic Games.  This game is even backwards […]
