Double_Dungeon_Turbo_Grafx_16_NEC_TG16_retro_retrogaming_RPG

When NEC launched the Turbo Grafx-16 in North America they knew they had to be different.  They had an uphill battle ahead of them and they knew it.  While in Japan they enjoyed quite a prominent position with gamers, in North America all bets were off.  We saw unique releases, for the market, such as […]

Working Designs Shuts Down – Today in History – December 12th, 2005

Working_Designs_Logo_retro_retrogaming

I am not going to sit here and try and convince you that Working Designs was one of the best publishers out there.  They were far from it.  Their role playing game releases were riddled with current event innuendo and jokes that date them today.  The few action games they released were marketed in less […]

Bonk’s Revenge for the Nintendo Entertainment System Restored

Bonks_Revenge_Hudson_Soft_Nintendo_NES_Turbo_Grafx-16_retro_retrogaming

Sometimes censorship in videogame is weird.  Other times it is probably for the best.  While I personally have no problem with upside down crosses in a game like Splatterhouse, there are people that are.  Concerned parents usually have more to be worried about in that game than some background sprites.  Same thing for the positioning […]

It is not often that I get all that excited about a Kickstarter but well, there is always that one that just won’t let me shut up.  Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs is now on Kickstarter and looking might freaking nice.  This is not a case of someone wanting to make a “homage” or […]

Retro_Freak_CYBER Corporation_retro game_retro_retrogaming_SNES_Sega_Nintendo_console (2)

This is interesting news, especially considering that severe lack of information on the RETRO Video Game System.  CYBER Gadget Corporation is working on a console named “Retro Freak” which will purportedly play 11 different 16-Bit era consoles worth of games.  That is quite the backlog for many of us, and a chance to add to […]

Five Great Side Scrolling Action Games that are Not Mario

It is no secret to retrogaming fans that Nintendo single handedly revived the North American video game market with their Nintendo Entertainment System and a little game called Super Mario Bros.  Nintendo was not new to the North American gaming world, they had several titles out on earlier consoles when they were, what would later […]

Mysterious Song 2nd print retro retrogaming Turbo Grafx-16 Frozen Utopia (1)

Mysterious Song for the Turbo Grafx-16 sold out rather quickly and that left a lot of gamers in the dark as far as getting a copy of the new Role Playing Game (RPG).  Now, Frozen Utopia have released a second print run on this popular RPG.  Fans should hurry and order a copy if they […]

We have seen hardware mods for various consoles such as the Sega Genesis and the Super Famicom but what about the other 16-Bit console?  The Turbo Grafx-16 doesn’t get a lot of love nowadays for some reason.  Thanks to Joshua Jaeger’s wife, an artist/designer, the Turbo Grafx-16 finally is getting some overdue love.  The Legendary […]

New Game: Aetherbyte Studios Updates Atlantean to become Santlantean for the Turbo Grafx-16

Santlantean Turbo Grafx-16 PC-Engine Aetherbyte Studios retro retrogaming cartridge (3)

New games for the Turbo Grafx-16 are quite rare as it is but to have a developer go one step farther and update one of their releases for the holiday season is just too cool.  Santlantean is similar to how Konami would update their popular Parodius title with new ideas and directions (Sexy Parodius anyone?).  […]
