Things in life that games don't prepare you for.

Before I start writing this post, I just want to say up front that there's no need to call the Waahmbulance. I'm not writing for sympathy, or a whole bunch of "cheer up, it'll get better, you're better off" comments because ...   read

Suishou no Dragon: The Square game you never played

Nor would you have, it was a text / point-n-click adventure for the Famicom Disk System that was only released in Japanese. That is until a ROM hacker known as Mute translated the game's Japanese text into English in January...   read

The most common gamer dilema: WTF do I play?

So it's about 9:30pm for me, and I'm sitting here staring at my not-so-meager collection of games that I have. Between the Wii and the 360, I have about 20, not counting downloaded games. Make that around 50 if you count Ga...   read

A cast of thousands: Pac-Man

Yeah, you read right. Old school Procyon is going to rave about an old school character in a serious attempt to shed light on why I think Pac-Man is one of the greatest video game characters ever created, as opposed to a hum...   read

Long MAME update is long

I don't know how many members of the community care about MAME or emulation. I imagine many people kind of figure that MAME is a little passé. But that's exactly why I decided to write this blog, because if you take a look...   read

Crackout - It's not what you think.

Early on in 1986, Taito took the basic gameplay made famous by Atari's Breakout, and gave it nice facelift. They released a game that, while not legendary in everyone's book, was certainly a genre defining game; Arkanoid. A...   read

Famicom Doraemon is three, three, three games in one.

When I sat down to start writing a guide for Doraemon (which you will find right here), I originally thought this was going to fall under the "Retro Pain" category. No such luck, I actually started to enjoy the game somewhat...   read

Shmup walkthrough = oxy-moron?

I was contemplating this question as I worked on the my latest NES/Famicom guide for StrategyWiki, a Famicom Disk System vertical shooter called Gall Force - Eternal Story (Click here for the guide). Some old-school anime fa...   read

Ultimate Retro Pain: The worst game in history

Now, granted, the worst game in history is a very subjective thing, but I'm pretty sure when someone actually set out to create the worst game in history, they pretty much deserve the title. The someone in question is Japane...   read

Retro Pain: Transformers Convoy no Nazo

For the record, this is actually the second Retro Pain article. Castlequest was the first, but I didn't think of the snazzy title until recently, so... Retro Pain will cover all of my exploits writing StrategyWiki guides fo...   read

Castlequest: I did write a walkthrough.

Well, not quite. I typed up a walkthrough, but I actually translated it from a Japanese site that I found. A lot of walkthroughs that I found for Castlequest (guide here) fell into two varieties; The insanely hard Time Atta...   read

It's not quite RetroforceGO, but...

The latest issue of Retrogaming Times Monthly is now online. I have been the chief editor of this 10 year old tradition for about a year and a half. It's seen its share of ups and downs, but it's still kicking. I thought I...   read
