Retro Consoles Untapped Marketing Avenue for Modern Games

It is getting harder and harder for modern game publishers to get their games in the hands of players, er on their consoles/computers is more like it but you get the point.  To get current generation games into the psyche of players is not so easy anymore- traditional advertising has proven less and less viable […]

Anna Fuda Project: Eden, New Run and Gun from Collectorvision Coming to Next Gen Systems

Collectorvision Games have been steadily keeping their collective heads pointed forward over the years.  Even though the RETRO VGS is currently regrouping (Collectorvision were making the pack-in title), Collectorvision are continuing work on another 2D side scrolling action game, Anna Fuda Project: Eden.  Jean-Francois Dupuis, owner of Collectorvision Games, released some very basic information on […]

Volgarr the Viking Ported to Sega Dreamcast, Released for Free with Permission

Volgarr the Viking is a newer 2D side scrolling action adventure for Microsoft’s Xbox and Steam, well it was released almost a year ago but that is still newer than Rygar or Ghouls n Ghosts, right?  I mention those two classics because it is quite clear that Volgarr the Viking is taking, at least, visual […]


Capcom Announces Arabian Fighter for Street Fighter V on 9/11, and that’s perfectly OK

So. Nine-Eleven. That infamous moment in American history that even fourteen years later, still seems to ring true in the hearts of many a jingoistic American as one of the most important moments of the 21st Century. While I’m not going to rant about the sociopolitical aspects of this day of remembrance (partially out of […]


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 […]


Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs is Currently on Kickstarter

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 […]


Mortal Kombat X Not Coming to Last Gen Consoles, We Look at Reasons Why

You read that headline right, Mortal Kombat X is no longer coming to the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 (Nintendo Wii  owners welcome their fellow gamers).  It seems that Mortal Kombat X on the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 just didn’t measure up to the quality of the Playstation 4 and Xbox One […]


Today in Gaming History: Aggressive Inline or Tony Hawk’s Eight-Wheeled Skater

Thirteen years ago on August 23, 2002 a game that was very near and dear to my heart as a teenager, Aggressive Inline made its debut. Well technically, that’s when the Xbox version was released. In the United Kingdom and Germany. I had the American PlayStation 2 version which was released on May 29 of […]


Tony and Me: My Favorite Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Memories

The year was 1999 and I was in eighth grade. Pizza Hut ran a promotion. You buy a pizza and you get one of two PlayStation demo discs, each containing demos of upcoming games. I cannot remember nine of the ten games (although I think Ape Escape and Sled Storm were among them), but I […]

Duke Nukem 3D Box

Today in Retro Gaming: Duke Nukem 3D (Shareware)

“Damn! Those alien bastards are gonna pay for shooting up my ride!” With those words, 3D Realms laid into the FPS genre with gusto. Bringing Apogee’s 2D side-scrolling, planet-saving hero into the third dimension to compete with the likes of Doom was no easy task considering the whole internet was ablaze with talk of iD […]
