Episode 33 – This week on the show we take a look back at Shinobi on the Sega Master System, after covering The Revenge of Shinobi on last month’s “The Genesis in 1989” retrospective. This game is probably best known for the first-person shuriken-throwing bonus stages, but it’s an excellent side-scrolling action game that any … Read more
Episode 32 – This week on the show, we take a look back at Ghosts ‘N Goblins on the NES, after covering Ghouls ‘N Ghosts on last week’s “Genesis in 1989” retrospective. This game has always been famous for its unforgiving difficulty, but is a classic Capcom arcade title that is absolutely worth playing anyway.
Episode 18 – This week on the show, I review the Everdrive GB, a micro SD-based flash cart for the Nintendo Game Boy and Game Boy Color. This allows you to load ROMs, ROM hacks, and homebrew software directly onto your Game Boy from a micro SD card which can hold the entire Game Boy … Read more
Episode 21 – This week, I create the “pilot” episode of a new category of videos I’d like to start doing called “Let’s Read”. A play on the “Let’s Play” category of videos, this series would showcase classic gaming magazines and books from back in the day along with my memories from back then. Probably … Read more
Episode 20 – This week on the show I review Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo) for the PC Engine Super CD. Possibly the best Castlevania title ever released and one of my personal favorite games. Since Super CD games are region-free, you can play this on your Turbografx-16 CD with … Read more
Episode 19 – This week on the show, I take a look back at the R.C. Pro-Am franchise. I review R.C. Pro-Am for the NES, Super R.C. Pro-Am for the Game Boy, Championship Pro-Am for the Sega Genesis, and R.C. Pro-Am II for the NES. A lot of people don’t realize that there was more … Read more
Episode 17 – This week on the show I review Explosive Diarrhea, a homebrew game for the Atari 2600 released by Packrat Video Games and designed by Chris Reed. Take control of a family of rednecks with food poisoning, guiding them to the nearest outhouse! It’s as much a conversation piece as it is a … Read more
Episode 15 – This week on the show, I review Clu Clu Land for the Nintendo Entertainment system, which was a 1985 launch title. An under-appreciated action/puzzle game that is definitely worth checking out.
Bonus Episode 2 – This week on the show, the Classic Gaming Quarterly Book Club takes a look at Capcom’s 30th Anniversary Character Encyclopedia.
Episode 14 – This week, I review Nigel Mansell’s World Championship Racing for the Super Nintendo. A worthy Formula One game on the SNES, a console not known for sports games!
Episode 13 – This week on the show, I review Tecmo Bowl and Tecmo Super Bowl on the NES, which are both classics that you undoubtedly played if you grew up in the 80’s. I also take a look at Tecmo Super Bowl 2014 from the good folks at TecmoBowl.org, which gives you the same … Read more
Episode 12 – This week, I take a look at the Super Monaco GP series on the Sega Genesis and Megadrive, which includes both Super Monaco GP and Ayrton Senna’s Super Monaco GP II. These are both awesomely fun racing games on the Genesis. The audio in the opening sequence is Galvao Bueno of Brazil’s … Read more
Episode 11 – This week on the show, Keystone Cops meets the Atari VCS, as I review Keystone Kapers for the Atari 2600. Easily one of the best games on the system, from one of the best development studios! The game was designed and programmed by Garry Kitchen and published by Activision.
Episode 10 – This week I take a look back at the entire Streets of Rage franchise for the Sega Genesis and Megadrive. These are some of the best games of the 16-bit Generation, with amazing soundtracks by Yuzo Koshiro.
Episode 9 – This week I teach you how to flip the script on your hipster buddies! Let your friends play their Genesis and Super Nintendo systems, while you play John Madden Duo CD Football for the TurboDuo and Turbografx-16 CD. This and the 3DO version have to be the two most obscure games in … Read more
Episode 8 – This week I review the Turbo Everdrive by krikzz for the TurboGrafx-16, TurboDuo, PC Engine, and SuperGrafx consoles. This device allowed you to play any HuCard game directly from an SD card. The entire TG16 and PCE library will fit on one SD card, so this is an incredibly convenient device even … Read more
Episode 7 – This week I review both golf games on the Neo-Geo AES, MVS, and CD. Top Players Golf is a completely skippable game, but if you aren’t playing Neo Turf Masters, then you just aren’t the gamer that I thought you were! If you don’t have a Neo-Geo, you can play Neo Turf … Read more
Episode 6 – This week I review all 3 baseball games on the Neo-Geo AES, MVS, and CD systems. Baseball Stars Professional, 2020 Super Baseball, and Baseball Stars 2 are all awesome games, and I wouldn’t consider my collection to be complete without all three of them!
Episode 5 – This week I review Operation Logic Bomb: The Ultimate Search & Destroy for the Super Nintendo. This excellent run & gun is somewhat similar to games like Ikari Warriors, Total Carnage, Shock Troopers, MERCs, etc, but has great atmosphere and music. This is definitely a hidden gem on the SNES and can … Read more
Episode 4 – In this episode, I review Doom for the Sony Playstation. John Carmack and John Romero’s masterpiece of a game from Id software made a terrific transition over to the PSX. This game contains content from both Doom and Doom II, and was at the time of its release in 1995 an awesome … Read more
