My Favorite Gaming Hidden Gems, Part Two: Dark Summit (2001, PlayStation 2)

I’ve been playing and collecting video games since the early 1980’s, and while there’s something to be said for enjoying the greats of the gaming world, there’s no better feeling for me than picking out something I’d never heard of, throwing it into my system, and being unable to tear myself away from it because […]

Versus Mode: Arch Rivals Vs. Basketbrawl

We all have that one friend. The friend who has a Sega instead of a Nintendo or a Colecovision instead of an Atari. This friend tends to lean towards the obscure and likes to talk about “alternative” versions of mainstream titles. Deciding on which game to play with this friend can be a total pain […]

Six Retro Alternative Sports Games That Never Get Old

Yeah, let’s hear it for some good old-fashioned SPORTSBALL, beeyotch!! Look, you either love sports games, or you love to point out how much money EA makes repackaging and re-selling the same game (sometimes literally) to players year after year. I unabashedly fall into the latter category, not only because I can’t tell you the […]

Four Unloved ZX Spectrum Sports Games

The ZX was a haven for sports games in the eighties, with everything from football and motor racing to bowls and kung fu getting the video game treatment. A few of them, such as Daley Thompson’s Decathlon (and all its button-mashing goodness) never left the public consciousness but the majority never came close to immortality. […]

Mega Man Soccer Replaces Blasters with Soccer Balls on Super Nintendo – Today in History – April 2nd, 1994

Nintendo has shown over the years that there is quite a bit of money to be made in iconic characters doing uncharacteristic things.  Mario started as a girder climber, then a running and jumping plumber.  Eventually Mario saw a short career in pharmaceuticals and even racing.  Capcom was paying attention around 1993 when Mega Man […]

Revenge of the License: Boxing Games and Karma

Humanity has a few personality quirks we’ve spent the last several thousand years failing to breed out of existence. Chief among these appears to be our desire to watch one person pulverize another in combat. No less a philosopher than the Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 remarked of the human race, “It’s in your nature to […]

Essential Amstrad CPC sports games

In the 1980’s It seemed whenever software companies were stuck for ideas they’d always bring out a new sports game, the concept still rings true today. Matchday was the essential football / soccer game on the CPC in the early years then there was the sequel Matchday 2 that boasted much more enhanced improvements to the […]

Yesterday in Gaming History: “Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2” or “BMX PG”

Until its demise in 2004, Acclaim, had the only legitimate claim to be a rival to Activision’s action sports franchise, although with a roster not nearly as deep. What Acclaim lacked in depth, it made up in quality, and yes, I’m pretending BMX XXX never existed. While I thoroughly enjoyed “Aggressive Inline,” and have written […]

Revenge of the License/Today in Gaming: Jennifer Capriati Tennis

It’s not every day we here at RGM get to do a “Today in Gaming/Revenge of the License” mashup, but boy howdy, mark your calendars cuz today we’re making some gaming history by talking about gaming history featuring an historic sports title for the Sega Genesis/Megadrive. “But Michael,” I hear you thinking, “you don’t like […]
