Wonder Boy Returns Relaunches Classic Franchise on Steam for Windows

wonder_boy_returns_cfk_sega_steam_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

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 […]

Sega Acquires Technosoft Franchises, Slowly Becoming Another Electronic Arts

Sega is a company that fans REALLY want to love and support but that love and support is more often than not met with lackluster Sonic the Hedgehog games.  This bothers a lot of the gaming populace that remember Sega of old. The Sega that released Comix Zone, Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3 […]

Streets of Rage Brings Fight to Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – September 18th, 1991

streets_rage_sega_genesis_brawler

A funny thing happened to Sega when they released their Genesis console.  For a very long period in gaming history, they were approaching, or were on, the top of the gaming world.  They were the talk of the town across the globe.  Nintendo still had a stranglehold on videogames but the success of the Sega […]

Sega was riding high during the 16-Bit days when they were able to finally break into the mainstream with the Sega Genesis console. There truly were some classics released for this defunct console. Sonic the Hedgehog debuted here, Alex Kidd stepped up his game from the Master System days, Vectorman kicked butt through two games […]

Fans Release Green Hill Paradise Act 2 Starring Sonic the Hedgehog

sonic_hedgehog_sega_fan_game_youtube_green_hill_paradise_act_2

Sega is a unique company.  Rather than being like Nintendo and going after the fans that create games using Sega characters, Sega works with a lot of them.  Weird.  Anyhow, some fans have released the latest trailer for a 3D Sonic the Hedgehog game- Green Hill Paradise Act 2.  This is amazing and it is […]

The Fifteen Most Difficult Genesis Games (That Are Not Battletoads)

Gaiares box (JP)

Last year we held a combination shouting match/kumite among the staff to determine the fifteen hardest NES games, discounting Battletoads. In the end, two things happened. First, you all made it the most-read, most-shared column we’ve ever published–you rock! Second, the local hospital told us if we pulled a stunt like that again, they would ‘accidentally’ […]

Henshin Engine Hits Kickstarter Bringing PC Engine Turbo Grafx 16 Action Platformer Home

henshin_Engine_PC_engine_turbo_grafx_16

New Turbo Grafx-16, also known as PC Engine in Japan, games are not all that regular today.  Fans have become accustomed to maybe one new game for this console per year, if that.  Compared to the Sega Genesis and Atari 2600 new game output by independent developers, this is rather sad.  Someone didn’t tell Sarumaru […]

Batman Forever Proves Digitized Graphics Aren’t Always Best – Today in Retro Gaming – September 4th 1995

Batman_Forever_Robin_Sega_Acclaim_Genesis_Game_Gear

With the popularity of titles like Mortal Kombat it was only a matter of time before we got a fully digitized brawler.  Acclaim was fine with doing just that for fans of the movie Batman Forever (there were some, right?) on the Sega Genesis and the Game Gear- both of which were released today in […]
