DariusBurst Chronicle Saviours Add Two New DLC packs and Playstation 4 Physical Release Announced

Side scrolling shooters were once the cream of the crop.  Man, I remember playing Gaiares, Thunder Force III and IV etc on the Sega Genesis and loving it.  Back in the day I was pretty good at side scrolling shooters- today not so much.  I call it age rot or whatever but I still give […]

Taito Releases Saint Sword onto Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – June 27th, 1991

What do you do when someone else has a really popular title?  Why, you copy it as best you can.  That is apparently what Taito did in the early 90’s when they released Saint Sword for the Sega Genesis.  They followed the idea of Rastan as best they could but as with most copycats, they […]

Bara Baru Brings Bubble Bobble Style Action to Sega Master System

They say imitation is the best form of flattery.  That has never been truer than in video games.  It is common place for a popular game to spur other companies into making “similar” games.  This is true in the independent developer world too.  Take Bara Baru on the Sega Master System for example.  It is […]

Target Renegade Sequel to NES Classic Hits – Today in History – March 26th, 1990

Target Renegade was the sequel to the original Renegade game that also appeared on the Nintendo Entertainment System.  Target Renegade is a brawler, similar to Final Fight and Double Dragon.  Considering there are only two action buttons there are many required button combinations to successfully navigate all of the moves available to your fighter.

Bust-a-Move Expands Bubble Bobble Universe on Super Nintendo – Today in History – March 1st, 1995

Puzzle games are a dime a dozen, especially in today’s mobile market.  Just like years past, the good ones are the hard to find ones- those are the ones that continue to be enjoyable decades later.  Bust-a-Move is one such puzzle game.  My first experience with this franchise was the Neo Geo version at a […]

Mr Do Collection by Collectorvision Could Be Coming for ColecoVision Console

Collectorvision are quite the prolific game developers.  They are not only working on at least one game for the Coleco Chameleon console but also possibly other titles.  One such title that I have uncovered is a possibly Mr. Do Collection for the ColecoVision console.  For fans of the arcade games this is great news as […]

Dariusburst, AKA Sagaia, Released for Android at a Premium Price Point for Mobile

Dariusburst was previously available on Playstation Portable (exclusive to Japan) and now, thanks to Taito, it is available on Android and iPhone.  For those of you reading this that have never played a Darius game, aka Sagaia, you are in for a treat if you like a challenge.  If not well, um, play something else.  […]

Revenge of the License: Densha de Go! Series

Here’s a new twist for this column. Instead of looking at a game that takes its inspiration from a comic, film, television show, cartoon, or book, today I’m going to look at a series which licenses its game play from the best source on Earth: real life. In this case, miles and miles of railroad […]

Qix, the Game Where You Are Defenseless Hits the Game Boy – Today in History – May 24th, 1990

Tell a modern gamer that you want them to play a game where they are completely defenseless against enemies.  Also mention that you have no weapons at your disposal, at all.  Then bring up the beautiful fact that you must somehow reclaim large portions of the playfield to move to the next level.  Yes, I […]

Revenge of the License: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (Part One)

Ah, Indiana Jones. What a fine trilogy of films you made, and what a slew of cut-rate, awful games based on those same films have dogged your footsteps like a fast-rolling boulder trap in an Incan ruin. Indy’s one of those properties that turns out OK as long as LucasArts has a hand in the […]
