Kingdom Hearts Mixes Disney with Square Enix on Playstation 2 – Today in Retro Gaming – September 16th, 2002

Kingdom Hearts Playstation 2

When I first heard about Kingdom Hearts I was a little dismayed.  I was, still am, a big Disney fan but I was coming out of the whole “Square rocks” phase of my gaming life.  I was interested in seeing what they did with, what was basically, a blanket Disney license like this (it surely […]

Spyro Flaps Wings onto Playstation – Today in History – September 10th, 1998

spyro_dragon_insomniac_playstatin_sony_3d_action

When the Sony Playstation blew onto the gaming scene it represented a COMPLETELY new era for both games but also the fans that enjoy playing them.  Insomniac was fresh of the release of Disruptor- a first person shooter that was not exactly “more of the same” in that genre.  The same can be said of […]

Sony Asks Are You Red E with Playstation Console – Today in Retro Gaming – September 9th, 1995

sony_playstation_console_september_9th_1995

Sony was kind of new to the console market when they released their original Playstation console.  I say “kind of” because the closest they came to launching a console prior was the Super Nintendo CD-ROM add-on/combo unit they were working on with Nintendo.  Kind of new to consoles because Sony did work with both Nintendo […]

Mother Russia Bleeds Brings Back Scrolling Brawlers for Steam Now Playstation 4 Soon

Mother_Russia_Bleeds_Devolver_Digital_Steam_Windows

Man, I really miss brawlers.  Even in their simplicity, they were something worth trying and many had unique takes on the genre.  No two brawlers were exactly the same.  Streets of Rage had the police back up options while Final Fight had oversized extremely detailed characters.  Now, Mother Russia Bleeds brings fatalities and pixel art […]

Oddballs In Gaming: Unlimited Saga Limits the Saga by not Limiting Itself?

usoddball

If a game franchise goes on long enough eventually it veers into weird territory. Unfortunately, English-speaking RPG gamers hardly know the Saga series from Square (now Square Enix). You see Square chose to have two major lines of RPG’s: the traditional JRPG Final Fantasy and their more experimental Saga series. Share This:

Oddballs in Gaming: HM: A Wonderful Life

Developed by Victor Interactive Software and published by Natsume in 2003. A Wonderful Life was the future of the Harvest Moon series, but while the reviews were positive the game polarized the fan base. Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life was the oddball game in the long-standing HM series that tried to achieve so much, but […]

Retro City Rampage DX Hits Retro Platform

Retro_City_Rampage_Sony_Playstation_Portable_PSP_Vblank

Retro City Rampage is one of those modern games that attempts to rip off the classic “retro” look.  It is intentionally developed using minimalistic graphics and sound/music.  A lot of developers feel this is the route to take to make their game stand out.  Unfortunately, a lot of developers are forgetting to make their games […]
