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

Acclaim_retro_retrogaming_logo

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
