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 […]

Vanishing Point Burns Rubber in Cars, Trucks and SUVs on Playstation – Today in History – February 5th, 2001

Racing games are a staple of gaming.  We saw them in the early days on the Atari 2600 in Night Driver.  We saw them propel forward in the 8-Bit days with Rad Racer on NES.  16-Bit gave us great titles like Outrun and Super Hang-On while 32-Bit heralded in the age of the “Racer” series […]

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Ends Run on Genesis on a High Note – Today in History – February 2nd, 1994

It is unclear what was going through the minds of the executives at Sega when they got the designs for Sonic the Hedgehog but it is clear that gamers loved him.  Sonic proved that gamers were tired of slow games and they wanted speed- not just in racing games but in action games too.  By […]

Brain Dead 13 FMV Game Gives You Unlimited Lives Because You Will Need Them – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

A little disclaimer in the manual for Brain Dead 13 set the pace for the rest of the game.  You are given unlimited lives and will probably need all of them to survive Brain Dead 13.  For those that do not know about Brain Dead 13, it is a Full Motion Video Game (FMV) in […]

Sword of Vermillion Brings Action Role Playing to Sega Genesis – Today in History – January 28th, 1991

When you have someone on staff like Yu Suzuki you have to let them spread their wings and fly.  With Sword of Vermillion that is exactly what Sega did- this was Yu Suzuki’s first console exclusive title, sadly it was not exactly a sales record setting release.  Sword of Vermillion was a few game engines […]

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 […]

Streets of Rage 2 box

Today in Reto Gaming – Streets of Rage 2

When it comes to Sega’s 16-bit library, there are classics and then there are classics, if you know what I’m saying. Streets of Rage 2 (Bare Knuckle 2 for you Asian readers) is, by any definition of the world, a straight up classic. It’s a classic’s classic. It makes most other fighting games available on […]

5 New Sega Genesis Games

Since the “5 New Sega Master System Games” article was a great success I figured why not give Sega Genesis fans the same opportunity. There is not nearly as much stuff being developed for the Sega Genesis as there is the Sega Master System though. That makes it a little tougher to find interesting new […]
