To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Sega CD cult classic Night Trap, Limited Run Games will be releasing a remastered version sometime this spring. 

Eternal Champions Sega Genesis

Eternal Champions Takes Fighting Games Through Time Travel Extravaganza on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – December 11th, 1993

Sega’s answer to the Street Fighter II fighting game craze was a time traveling romp called Eternal Champions. Released on both Sega CD and Sega Genesis, the former is the better version.

Mansion of Hidden Souls Sega CD

Mansion of Hidden Souls Opens for Business on Sega CD – Today in Retro Gaming – December 9th, 1993

The Mansion of Hidden Souls on the Sega CD continues the tradition of horror full motion video games. Can you solve the mystery or will you forever be a new resident of the mansion?

Sega CD Atmospheric Gaming You Forgot About

The Sega CD was one of those expensive add-ons that were popular in the late 80’s and early 90’s.  This add-on brought cutting edge CD technology to the Sega Genesis fans and then hampered it with 64 colors on screen at any given time (but it added rotation and scaling capabilities that the Super Nintendo […]

Sewer Shark Calls Gamers Names – Today in Retro Gaming – October 15th, 1992

Full Motion Video (FMV) games were quite new when the Sega CD was released.  At least as far as mainstream gaming goes because Sewer Shark and Night Trap are both about half a decade old upon their release in 1992 on the newly released Sega CD add-on.  Sega knew they had to get unique games […]

Produce Music Videos with Make My Video Starring Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch – Today in Retro Gaming – October 15th, 1992

Okay, this is one of those releases for the Sega CD that have gamers scratching their heads.  What was Sega thinking when this one got approved?  You also have to realize there were at least two more releases in this series (INXS and Kris Kross).  That makes it even more baffling that just the one […]

Cobra Command Brings Animated Arcade Rails Shooter Home – Today in Retro Gaming – October 15th, 1992

Full Motion Video is not all actors in, somewhat, scant clothing running from blood suckers ala Night Trap.  Or getting called names by your boss like in Sewer Shark.  No, sometimes Full Motion Video games are just cartoons similar to what we enjoyed on Saturday mornings in the 80’s (man, who misses THOSE days?).  Cobra […]

Night Trap Brings Congressional Hearings into Video Games — Today in Retro Gaming — October 15th, 1992

When Sega launched the Sega CD add-on they needed some games that really “wowed” the audience and could not be done on cartridge.  One company they went to that already had experience in this realm was Digital Pictures.  DP was one of those “really ahead of their time” type companies that was working with Full Motion […]

Henshin Engine

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

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 […]

Did Sega Turn Down the Nintendo 64 Hardware?

It is almost the point that gamers can point to that was the fall of Sega.  Releasing a ton of add-ons for the Sega Genesis seems to be the point that most game companies point at when asked why they didn’t support the Sega Saturn.  That Sega was all over the place.  They were actually.  […]
