Race Mickey and Friends Around Walt Disney World Quest- Magical Racing Tour on Playstation – Today in History – March 23rd, 2000

Most people reading this have had at least one fleeting notion in their lives to go racing around the attractions at Walt Disney World/Land.  Come on, you know you have wanted to put the pedal to the metal on at least one ride.  Whether that be Haunted Mansion or Space Mountain, one of the attractions […]

Take Kratos to Hades and Back in God of War for Playstation 2 – Today in History – March 22nd, 2005

God of War was one of the first games that I saw on the Playstation 2 that really made me sit up and take notice.  I knew of the PS2 prior to God of War but it was more passive interest for me.  The idea of controlling this guy that was to take on the […]

Renegade Racers Defies Water Physics on Playstation – Today in History – March 9th, 2000

It is not all that unique in gaming to have real world physics completely, and utterly, ignored in favor of making a fun game possible.  This happens in virtually every video game that is not a simulation of some sort.  Physics aren’t all that fun in most games since they keep the player stuck in […]

Bandit Gaming- Wipeout Ported to Atari 2600

When the Sony Playstation hit way back in the mid 1990’s it was a seminal release.  Sony was new to the console world and their aim was to be as different from the competition and what came before as possible.  One way this was accomplished was through requiring, through their stringent approval process, mainly 3D […]

Bandit Gaming: Shadow of the Colossus for Atari 2600 Work in Progress

We have covered wild works in progress and the like for various consoles since we started RGM.  One of the more interesting ones was Mario 64 getting ported to the Atari 2600, of all consoles.  Interestingly, we have found an even wilder work in progress title, Sony’s Shadow of the Colossus which is currently a […]

Sony Pocketstation

New Game: Snake Comes to the Sony PocketStation

Ah, the PocketStation from Sony, a device that never came to North America, at least officially.  Sure, you could import this little device but it was prohibitively expensive and there were precious few games that made the leap across the pond with their PocketStation content intact.  Homebrew developers are a wild bunch, they just won’t […]

Apparel- Playstation 20th Anniversary Celebration Continues with Clothing

This is a first for us here at RGM, an article about clothing.  You may be asking, what does clothing have to do with retro gaming?  Just clothing doesn’t have much in common, but when it is officially licensed Sony Playstation clothing celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the platform, we can fudge the rules a […]

Jumping Flash Geograph Seal, Sony Playstation Exact retrogaming retro game

Gamers Discovered Fear of Heights in Jumping Flash on Playstation – Today in History – January 1st, 1996

When the Sony Playstation hit 19 years ago (come September 2015 it will be 20 years old) gamers really didn’t know what to expect.  Sony was not exactly known for great games, their software division had a few hits (Hook being one), probably not enough to sustain a new, break away from Nintendo, console.  In […]

Polaris SnoCross Shreds Onto the Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 27th, 2000

Before Vicarious Visions were working their magic for Sega and the whole 2k sports line on the Sega Dreamcast system, they were creating games like Polaris SnoCross for companies like Vatical Entertainment for the Nintendo 64.  While not a graphically impressive game, it does show off Vicarious Visions capabilities with early 3D (which they tweaked […]

Aliens, Buxom Women, Fisticuffs, Round One with Criticom on Playstation: Today in History- November 29th, 1996

Today in retro gaming, we acknowledge the release of Kronos Digital’s not-so-gripping fighting game of not-so-epic proportions with an ad more exciting than the game it advertises.  How does this sort of thing keep happening? Like this:Like Loading…
