E.V.O.: The Theory of Evolution

Fan Translation – E.V.O.: The Theory of Evolution Released for PC-98

In 1993, E.V.O.: Search for Eden was released for the Super Nintendo in North America. The action platform game is all about evolution and is a spiritual sequel to 46 Okunen Monogatari: The Shinka Ron, a more darker, more story-driven role-playing game from Enix. However, 46 Okunen Monogatari: The Shinka Ron (translated as 4.6 Billion […]

Tear Ring Saga Playstation

Fan Translation – Fire Emblem for Playstation, er, Tear Ring Saga Released

Tear Ring Saga was the first non-Nintendo game created by the creator of the Fire Emblem series. It was so close to his original work that Nintendo was, gasp, spurred into legal action. Tear Ring Saga is now available in English thanks to fans.

Enix Brings 7th Saga Stateside While Ignoring Gamer Pleas for Dragon Warrior 5 – Today in Retro Gaming – August 3rd, 1993

Who remembers the strong 8-Bit finale that Enix gave us as they wrote off the Nintendo Entertainment System?  They gave gamers ALL four Dragon Warrior games.  In Japan these games were called Dragon Quest- and in recent years Square Enix has resurrected them under that name on mobile platforms.  Anyhow, when the Super Nintendo came […]

Allied General Lets Players Take on World War II – Today in History – January 31st, 1996

Turn based strategy war games are not all that popular in today’s market and that kind of sucks.  I grew up playing computer games a lot in the 90’s and it seems that was the golden age for this genre.  Sure, the late 80’s and early 90’s probably had more turn based strategy war games, […]

Six Traditional Strategy Role Playing Games on Android

Okay, I am a retro gamer from the old days.  I have been playing since the days of Pong into the Atari 2600 era through to today.  When the crash happened I just thought it was a resetting of the industry- it kind of was.  During my younger years I was a huge fan of […]

Quest Forge – By Order of Kings is Latest Homebrew Release for Nintendo NES

The Nintendo Entertainment System is a venerable little console, the fans are keeping this thing alive longer than anyone would have thought possible.  I am not just talking about rom hacks, fan translations and homebrew digital releases – those happen quite a bit already.  I am talking about physical cartridges for homebrew and independent titles […]

Heroes of Might and Magic Coming to Sega Genesis

You read that title right.  Heroes of Might and Magic is coming to the Sega Genesis, on a cartridge even.  This is great news for turn based strategy fans, and definitely fans of the computer series- which has not graced a cartridge based console, yet (I am ignoring the Game Boy Color remakes).  For those […]

Kickstarter: Celestial Tear: Demon’s Revenge Combines Comic Style Artwork with Final Fantasy Role Playing

Role playing games on Kickstarter are, seemingly, a dime a dozen so I am doing my best to only cover the ones that really are interesting titles. Legena, Elysian Shadows, etc are genuinely titles that I think retro gaming fans will enjoy. Now, we can add Demon’s Revenge to that list of projects that are […]

Today in History: March 22nd, 1994- Shining Force CD Slashes onto Sega CD

Shining Force is one of those series that Sega really dropped the ball with, the whole “Shining” series probably became too dilluted and convoluted for Sega to keep up with it. So they dropped it like a hot potato. Unfortunate as this was really one of the series, along with Phantasy Star, that Sega could […]

Fan Translation: Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together Released for Super Nintendo

For many in North America, this title will look familiar because it was released here on the Sony Playstation, not the Super Nintendo. Aeon Genesis, fan translation gurus, released this patch awhile back but we felt it warranted a news post to alert fans to its existence.
