Revenge of the License: The Thing

The final installment of this column prior to Halloween saved the best for last. There’s no denying John Carpenter’s “The Thing” from 1982 is a master class in claustrophobic paranoia. Forget the 2011 prequel and turn your attention to the 2002 sequel, developed with Carpenter’s blessing as a continuation/expansion of the events from the movie on its […]

The Black Sheep of Horror Gaming: Silent Hill 4

When Halloween slips around, you have tons of choices for hosting a retro-themed scare-a-thon on your big screen. It’s easy to dive straight into the likes of Resident Evil 4, Silent Hill 2, or even Friday the 13th. Formerly obscure titles like Sweet Home on the NES and Clock Tower for the PS1 have been […]

Playstation Doused with Blood by Castlevania Symphony of the Night – Today in Retro Gaming – October 2nd, 1997

Picking right up where Castlevania Rondo of Blood left off, Castlevania Symphony of the Night was a seminal release for many fans of the franchise.  This was Konami doing what Konami excelled at- 2D side scrolling action.  The difference here was that while there was a lot of action, probably more than any other Castlevania […]

Acclaim Closes Their Doors – Today in Retro Gaming – September 1st, 2004

Old school game publishers going out of business is never fun to write about.  With Acclaim though it is kind of bittersweet.  While they held some of the best licenses of whatever generation of console we are talking about, they would also universally phone in the quality of the underlying game.  For many, they made games […]

GoldenEye 007 Xbox Live Arcade Remake Footage Released

When Microsoft purchased Rare it was nearly demanded by fans that GoldenEye 007 see an HD re-release.  While that never happened Rare and Microsoft did do their best to satiate fans with remakes of many of Rare’s classic titles.  From Conker’s Bad Fur Day to Perfect Dark – if Rare released it on a Nintendo […]

Retro Gaming Over Saturation – Are We There Yet?

It seems that with each new release of hardware in the console and hand held worlds we see re-releases of retro games.  Whether these are compilations of classics or single releases themselves.  This has been going on since the first follow up console was released in the 1980’s.  Companies have been working to monetize past […]

Micro Transactions Could Save Arcade Games as we Knew Them

Back in the day arcades were king.  This was in the 80’s up to the early 90’s when home consoles were still underpowered.  When the Playstation and Sega Saturn came out though, while still underpowered by comparison, the quality of ports was much better.  This spelled the downfall of arcade games.  Gamers were no longer […]
