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 […]

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 […]


Capcom Gives Fans Resident Evil Director’s Cut – Today in Retro Gaming – September 30th, 1997

When Capcom released the original Resident Evil onto the Sony Playstation console it was unique.  Never before had gamers been presented with a 3D horror game like this before.  No, I am not counting Alone in the Dark here as that was more of a 3D adventure game with monsters.  Resident Evil was a 3D […]

Kingdom Hearts Playstation 2

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

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

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 […]
