Review: Retro-Bit Super Retro Trio Plus

Clone systems everywhere, in my dreams, and my nightmares. Clone systems coming out of my ears. It feels like not that long ago the first cheap NES clones were coming out. They felt so novel back then, a way to play your old games without d...

Do you remember?: Comix Zone

When we were young teens, me and my brother laid claim to the basement. The rest of the house was neat and orderly, a pastel world of floral designs and tasteful drapes. But, the basement was ours. A savage land of hand-me-down sofas, coffe...

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 joins Sega's free mobile game initiative

Sonic has had a bit of a crazy year. While Sonic Mania was well received by both fans and critics, Sonic Forces is a bit of a mess. Some people can dig it, but the general consensus seems to be that the game was a missed opportunity. Why no...

Review: Retro-Bit Dual Link SNES/Genesis Controller

The SNES Classic has been out a while now and my daughter and I have been enjoying it quite a bit. The best thing about it is the controllers. Having played with a Raspberry Pi, it was tough to find a suitable controller to use in the third...

Grab a new helmet while playing Decap Attack on your phone

In my quest to tangentially link all of my headlines of Sega's mobile offerings to the respective game, I drew a bunch of blanks with Decap Attack. What do you even title this? The oddball Genesis classic has you playing as some mummy looki...

Review: Retro Freak Premium game console

The SNES Classic pre-orders have come and gone and the dregs left behind without one will be forced to scramble wildly, clawing desperately at one another like a depiction of hell in a Hieronymus Bosch painting for the scraps. I don’t...

Ristar brightens up the Sega Forever line-up

Once upon a time, the Sonic Team didn't make solely Sonic the Hedgehog games. In the later days of the Genesis, Yuji Naka (Sonic's creator) tried his hand at creating a new mascot for the company (reworked from the original c...

Speed past your friends in Sonic Mania's competition mode!

With how popular split-screen gaming used to be in the retro days, its crazy that Sonic never really had a competitive multiplayer mode outside of Sonic 2 and 3. I have a lot of memories of wanting a full on co-op experience like that, tink...

Celebrating 25 Years of Ecco the Dolphin

I just got back from a family vacation and have been feeling pretty burned out. For my wife, kids, and I, it was the first significant journey we took anywhere; a mere 14-hour road trip which might not seem like much, but with two kids in t...

Sega Forever is poised to be the ultimate retro trip

Some beautiful bastards are making a new Genesis beat-em-up

The last game commercially released on the Sega Genesis was a port of Frogger in 1998. If we disregard other homebrew or indie games, then it has been roughly 19 years since any of us had the chance to play a brand new game on the system. T...

Some mad genius hacked Bubsy into Streets of Rage 2

I'm a simple man. All I need in my games are cute characters, things to jump over, and dudes to punch in the face. But little did I know that I needed something like this. Thanks to Metal64, Bubsy is now a playable character in Streets of R...

Fan-made Sonic Utopia might be the best 3D Sonic game ever

For all the efforts Sonic Team has made, it's never quite nailed the 3D Sonic formula. Fans have fond memories of Sonic Adventure, but anything even resembling the Dreamcast classics hasn't been made since 2003 (Sonic Heroes). Maybe Generat...
