Blood Omen Legacy of Kain

Blood Omen – Legacy of Kain Sucks Blood on Playstation – Today in Retro Gaming – November 1st, 1996

Okay, this is one of those games that I followed in the pages of Gamefan Magazine every month.  Blood Omen – Legacy of Kain was THE game for fans of the “dark” side of gaming.  Sure, Gamefan overplayed the game quite a bit with each multi-page spread they did for it.  Still, this was one […]

Revenge of the License: The Thing

The final installment of this column prior to Halloween saved the best for last. There’s no denying John Carpenter’s “The Thing” from 1982 is a master class in claustrophobic paranoia. Forget the 2011 prequel and turn your attention to the 2002 sequel, developed with Carpenter’s blessing as a continuation/expansion of the events from the movie on its […]

Super Nintendo Rayman Game Unearthed

Rayman was the first platform star of the 32-Bit era.  Ubi Soft was quick to launch this little guy unto the world of Atari Jaguar, then later Playstation and Saturn.  Sadly Rayman never made it to the 3DO console- though it would have surely been quite cool if it did.  Rayman was the first 2D […]

Revenge of the License: Alien Trilogy

One of iD Software’s initial ideas for Doom was to make a first-person shooter set in the world of James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’. When a licensing deal couldn’t be worked out between iD and 20th Century Fox, Carmack and Romero’s team fell back on a more generic ‘space marine kills everything’ setting, and an FPS classic […]

The Black Sheep of Horror Gaming: LSD Dream Emulator

When Halloween slips around, you have tons of choices for hosting a retro-themed scare-a-thon on your big screen. It’s easy to dive straight into the likes of Nightmare on Elm Street, Silent Hill 2, or even these Atari 2600 ‘classics’. Formerly obscure titles like Run Like Hell for Xbox/PS2 and Nocturne on PC have been around […]

Sega Saturn Policenauts English Fan Translation Released

In issue #2 of our magazine we covered fan translations and digital comics.  We of course placed artwork from Snatcher on the cover.  In that issue was an exclusive interview with Artemio Urbina of Policenauts.net and featured Snatcher (among other digital comics and fan translations).  Well, today I am proud to write up this article […]

The Black Sheep of Horror Gaming: Silent Hill 4

When Halloween slips around, you have tons of choices for hosting a retro-themed scare-a-thon on your big screen. It’s easy to dive straight into the likes of Resident Evil 4, Silent Hill 2, or even Friday the 13th. Formerly obscure titles like Sweet Home on the NES and Clock Tower for the PS1 have been […]

Playstation Doused with Blood by Castlevania Symphony of the Night – Today in Retro Gaming – October 2nd, 1997

Picking right up where Castlevania Rondo of Blood left off, Castlevania Symphony of the Night was a seminal release for many fans of the franchise.  This was Konami doing what Konami excelled at- 2D side scrolling action.  The difference here was that while there was a lot of action, probably more than any other Castlevania […]

Clock Tower Lops Limbs Off Playstation Owners – Today in Retro Gaming – October 1st, 1997

When you think of horror games on the original Playstation console, what do you think of?  Maybe you only know Capcom’s Resident Evil in this genre.  Maybe you go a little less mainstream and remember something called Clock Tower by our friends at ASCII Entertainment?  While this is technically the second Clock Tower game, the […]

MediEvil Revives Failed Hero Hell-bent on Revenge – Today in Retro Gaming – October 1st 1998

What happens when the hero of the battle is the first one to fall in said battle?  Well, if you are the king over that hero and his army you cover it up and act like it never happened.  This is exactly what King of Gallowmere did when Sir Daniel Fortesque fell in battle against […]
