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 […]

Psychonauts was the Game that Wouldn’t Die – Today in History – April 19th, 2005

To say that Psychonauts had a storied development would be kind of an understatement.  What started out in the wild world of the classic LucasArts title Full Throttle expanded, nearly died and was revived again by the hands of one man.  Tim Schafer.  What became Psychonauts was originally to be a drug filled romp through […]

Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict Brings Arena Style 3D Shooting to Xbox – Today in History – April 18th, 2005

The original Xbox was not exactly the barn burning success that Microsoft had hoped it would be.  That did not stop plenty of exclusive games, most First Person Shooters (FPS), from appearing on the console.  One such console exclusive was Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict by Midway and Epic Games.  This game is even backwards […]

Jade Empire Takes Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Styling to Ancient China – Today in History – April 12th, 2005

When Jade Empire was announced for the original Xbox console it was one of the few exclusives that was truly interesting that wasn’t a First Person Shooter (FPS).   This was a chance for fans of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic to experience something similar, but not a rip-off, but new and intriguing.  Microsoft […]

Resident Evil Minimalistic Would Look Like White Night

Resident Evil was not the first horror game, nor was it the “best” but it was marketed extremely well and it got people interested.  There were several other horror games that used the same controlled views to give players a sense of unknowing.  Most notable of those earlier titles was Alone in the Dark which […]

Rumor: Battletoads Could Be Coming to Xbox Platform in 2016

Recently Microsoft trademarked the name “Battletoads”, a rare property that was published by Tradewest on the Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Game Boy and NES while Electronic Arts released an arcade game using the toads with ‘tude.  This is interesting news considering what has happened a year or two after Microsoft trademarked “Killer Instinct” a while […]

Volgarr the Viking Xbox One Crazy Vikings Studios 2

New Game: Volgarr the Viking on Xbox One, PC, Mac Reminds Us of When Games Were Tough

It is no secret that Microsoft is kind of taking a beating with the Xbox One versus the Playstation 4 right now.  While there are many possible reasons for this, I like to think it is a case of lack of retro content available for the platform- Sony has their whole PSOne Classics catalog of […]

Retro Gaming Halloween Style, Part Four: Obscure

Yeah, yeah, everybody makes their lists about scary, creepy, or flat-out weird games to play each October and we’re not about to buck the trend. But we’re going to assume you’re a retro gamer who’s read enough to know the big franchises everybody else writes about. Because if you’ve picked up a controller in the […]

Survive the Dead in House of the Dead 2 on Sega Dreamcast – Today in History – September 9th, 1999

Arcade ports are Sega’s forte, at least they used to be, and their Dreamcast console was no different. With ports of Hydro Thunder, Soul Calibur and Mortal Kombat 4 (Gold on DC). Launching platforms with arcade ports became a Sega mainstay with the Genesis console and was continued through on the 32X and Saturn consoles […]
