Harvest Moon 64 Returns on Wii U Virtual Console

Fans of Harvest Moon 64 have plenty of reason to rejoice this week! At least the European fans do, as it has been announced that the Wii U Virtual Console will finally receive Harvest Moon 64. After years of fans clamoring for Nintendo to release the game to no avail, it appears that the company […]

Skies of Arcadia 2?

Fans have been clamoring a sequel to Skies of Arcadia for nearly two decades. Unfortunately for them, the possibility of this is nearly non-existent as Sega has no plans for the development of a sequel. Since around 2007, rumors have persisted that Sega would produce an HD remake of Skies of Arcadia but, so far, […]

Nintendo NES Classic Mini – Missed Million Dollar Opportunity

The Nintendo NES Classic Mini is due for release in about five days in North America and will come packed with 30 games from the 8-Bit era.  This is a great way for gamers to relive their gaming past without all of the clutter of several game cartridges and the like.  The Nintendo NES Classic […]

Splatterhouse 2 Drops Gallons of Blood on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – August 3rd, 1992

Splatterhouse 2 was the first title in the series to hit a Sega console.  The first game was an arcade game and hit the home on the PC Engine/Turbo Grafx-16 console.  Namco continued the 2D side scrolling action with this sequel.  Blood poured and guts fell as you progressed in this 16-Bit action game.

Kid Chameleon Masks Abilities on Sega Genesis – Today in Retro Gaming – May 28th, 1992

Sega throughout the 16-Bit era, and many would argue the 8-Bit era too, was constantly trying to find a mascot.  They did this by throwing just about every game that was well put together and had a cool hook to it out to gamers.  The problem with this method of mascot hunting was, not many […]

Baseball Slides Home on Nintendo Wii’s Virtual Console (NES) – Today in History – January 1st, 2007

What’s one of the first things that any hot new console on the market needs? Sports games! Given the worldwide popularity of baseball  (at least in North American and Japan) it was a no-brainer that Nintendo would want to capitalize on the sport for the NES. While I’m not a huge fan of watching baseball […]

Super Mario Bros 2 Hits the Nintendo Entertainment System- Today in History: April 28th 1989

Nintendo was still new to the sequel rituals when they released Super Mario Bros 2 on the NES, and boy did they go away from the norm for what a sequel was supposed to be.  Being almost a complete departure from the original NES title, in Japan the title used for the US SMB2 was […]

Ending Friendships with a Smile with Super Mario Kart on Super Nintendo – Today in History – September 1st, 1992

If you are a retro gamer of any sort then you know at least a little bit about Super Mario Kart. Super Mario Kart was not the first racing game, just like Super Mario Bros was not the first side scrolling action game but Nintendo did it their way and created a new genre. Mario […]

Alien Crush Unleashes Extra Terrestrials into Pinball – Today in History – August 19th, 1989

The launch of the Turbo Grafx-16 was the first, and only, foray into the North American gaming market for NEC (for more information on this see our historical look back here). NEC were pulling out all of the stops, at least as many as they could with their libary of launch titles. To say NEC […]

Ufouria: This is what the Virtual Console is all about

Usually I get disappointed when I read about the newest Nintendo downloads every Thursday.  This past Thursday seemed like just another lame week of no-name downloads when I first read about them.  After doing a bit more research, I see that this is not just another download week.  Nintendo put up a game that was […]
