Konami Mining Classic Titles for Real Money Gaming

As far as SHMUPs go, few are considered true classics of the genre as much as Centipede. Since it arrived in arcades in 1980, it’s been ported, cloned, and remade numerous times. The game even played a special role in the Adam Sandler snoozefest Pixels.

Undiscovered Punchout Code Discovered 30 Years after Release

It is no secret that there has been a new Easter Egg discovered in Mike Tyson’s Punchout for the Nintendo Entertainment System.  This is an interesting one too as it is subtle but works every time you try and make use of it.  It is interesting that many people such as Shigeru Miyamoto have stated […]

Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary Receives 2.0 Update on Android and iOS Devices

Updates to classic titles are not all that popular for some reason.  Sure, we get the original re-released for a premium price, but “new” takes on those classics are less popular for some reason.  Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary has just received its 2.0 update which adds new levels and new features.  Sad that we are […]

Mega Man Soccer Replaces Blasters with Soccer Balls on Super Nintendo – Today in History – April 2nd, 1994

Nintendo has shown over the years that there is quite a bit of money to be made in iconic characters doing uncharacteristic things.  Mario started as a girder climber, then a running and jumping plumber.  Eventually Mario saw a short career in pharmaceuticals and even racing.  Capcom was paying attention around 1993 when Mega Man […]

Bonk Brink of Extinction More Information Released on Canceled Title

Bonk.  The redheaded stepchild of gaming mascots was never quite able to gain traction.  Bonk’s popularity was good enough for NEC/TTI/Hudson to release several titles based on him.  We got a shooter (Zonk) and several platformers in the Bonk universe.  After the demise of the Turbo Grafx-16, Hudson kept Bonk alive releasing titles for the […]

Drunken Pooper: Strange Tales from Classic Game Development

My first Atari 2600 game was far from original – although its origin was. A certain amateur developer entered a coding contest sponsored by the now defunct video game import company Lik Sang. His chosen genre for his entry: “fecal shooter”. He chose to reenact a situation in which his roommate placed a stinky, fully […]

Mega Man Battle Network Lets You Play a Robot in a Computer – Today in History – March 21st, 2001

Okay, here is a premise that is somewhat unique in description if not in execution.  You are tasked as playing Mega Man in a tactical role playing game.  Fine so far, we have seen this many times in gaming.  Here you are playing Mega Man inside of a computer though.  Matrix maybe?  Not really.  This […]

Earthworm Jim Joins Streets of Rage 2 Cast on Sega Genesis

Earthworm Jim has entered the world of Streets of Rage 2.  Yeah, you read that right.  Earthworm Jim is now in Streets of Rage 2.  This is not an official thing, Sega has not come to their sense and done what fans have been doing for years.  No, this is another fan hack that adds […]

Sega are nothing if not prolific in keeping their classic catalog alive.  Now, updating that retro gaming catalog, or allowing fans to make their own updates, is another story.  Part of Sega keeping their heritage alive is bringing certain, key, games to new platforms whenever possible.  By the end of March, several Sonic the Hedgehog […]
