Tiny Toon Adventures Busts Onto Sega Genesis – Today in History – February 7th, 1993

When Sega released Sonic onto the world, it just furthered the notion that every company needed a mascot.  This was particularly true for console manufacturers- there needed to be an exclusive game series that was ONLY on one platform to entice gamers to buy into it.  This was also true for third parties though, especially […]

Battletech Brings Overhead Giant Robot Stomping to Sega Genesis – Today in History – February 2nd, 1994

Giant robots and gaming seem to go together quite well.  While a bigger thing in anime, giant robots hold their own in gaming.  From anime to board games to video games, giant robots kick butt and fans can’t get enough of them.  Whether it be Robotech, Voltron, Transformers or the subject of this article- Battletech- […]

Typing of the Dead Replaces Guns with Keyboards on Sega Dreamcast – Today in History – January 23rd, 2001

Edutainment titles are a staple of gaming.  Going all the way back the early days of both console and personal computer gaming.  The problem edutainment has always faced is that it was OBVIOUSLY edutainment.  Much like licensed titles, but worse, edutainment titles not only miss the mark in gameplay but content too.  This is why […]

I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream Released on Android and iOS

DotEmu are quickly becoming “that” video game company.  You know the type.  A company that does things that others are not and it is catering to the gamer that is ignored.  Let’s face it, their ports to Android and iOS are not going to set the world on fire with sales records yet they continue […]
