Capcom Gives Fans Resident Evil Director’s Cut – Today in Retro Gaming – September 30th, 1997

resident_evil_directors_cut_sony_capcom_playstation_psone

When Capcom released the original Resident Evil onto the Sony Playstation console it was unique.  Never before had gamers been presented with a 3D horror game like this before.  No, I am not counting Alone in the Dark here as that was more of a 3D adventure game with monsters.  Resident Evil was a 3D […]

Fallout Brings Windows Gamers Alternative Historical Post-Nuclear War – Today in Retro Gaming – September 30th, 1997

War is something that is eternal in gaming.  Pretty much every electronic thing that has been released that plays games has had a war game of some sort.  Sure, that war game may have been with colorful graphics and bouncy sound effects but there was a war going on.  Fallout by Interplay, for Windows computers, certainly […]

When the original Dragon Warrior game was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System it was quite a departure from the norm.  Prior to Dragon Warrior there were not exactly a lot of role playing games like it available for the new NES console.  Enix, now part of Square Enix, was onto something and they were […]

Jake Pawloski Interview – Griff the Winged Lion by Breakerbox Studios

To say that I am excited for Griff the Winged Lion is about right.  This is a new 3D action platform title by Breakerbox Studios that is currently on Kickstarter.  Now, when checking out the video you will quickly realize that this team has huge respect for Spyro the Dragon on the original Playstation.  I […]

Recently I covered a new protective sleeve for the Atari 2600 line of cartridges.  For those that do not know, the Atari 2600 library has never shipped with any kind of protective sleeve (at least none I am aware of).  Global Game Gear has created a solution to protect the fantastic artwork that many Atari […]

Bandit Gaming – Gradius Sees ColecoVision Release by AtariAge

gradius_opcode_games_konami_bandit_gaming_colecovision

Gradius is one of the iconic side scrolling shooting games that Konami kind of dropped the ball on repeatedly over the years.  Sure, there were over 15 releases in the series across many platforms but the last, swan song if you will, released in 2011 was a pachislot game.  What a shame, Konami.  What a […]

Wonder Boy Returns Relaunches Classic Franchise on Steam for Windows

Okay, hang with me here.  The Wonder Boy series has been around the world many times over, especially during the 16-Bit era.  Most notably to North American gamers this game is familiar under a couple of names.  One is Monster Lair for the Turbo Grafx-16 CD-ROM, which not a lot of gamers shelled out the […]

DariusBurst Chronicle Saviours Add Two New DLC packs and Playstation 4 Physical Release Announced

dariusburst_playstation_ps4_vita_steam_retro_shooter

Side scrolling shooters were once the cream of the crop.  Man, I remember playing Gaiares, Thunder Force III and IV etc on the Sega Genesis and loving it.  Back in the day I was pretty good at side scrolling shooters- today not so much.  I call it age rot or whatever but I still give […]

Fan Mod Adds Double Dragon II Bosses Everywhere

double_dragon_ii_2_boss_mode_acclaim_romhacking

The original Double Dragon II was not all that easy to beat.  To add to the complications in beating this brawler, you did not see the whole game if you played on an easier difficulty.  This was cool for the hardcore players but also kind of a rip off to those that were not quite […]
