RETRO REBOOT!! Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Fighting Edition (SNES)

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers brought in a truckload of video games in the 16 bit days. I thought the first one for the SNES was a decent action platformer with amazing music, but it was missing the Green Ranger (how do you do that?). If you wanted your Green Ranger fix, had to pay the Sega Genesis version, and boy, did you really bite that bullet. The…

RETRO REBOOT VS!! Disney's Aladdin Sega Genesis vs Super Nintendo

It's time to take another look at where I think the meat and potatoes of the 16-bit console wars truly lie, and that's two completely different ports of Aladdin. The Sega Genesis version, developed by Virgin Games, is widely regarded as the superior version, and arguably one of the best video games on the console, with little mention of the merits of…

Yakuza 7 Shifts The Series Into A Turn-Based RPG

Yes, that's read correctly. The seventh entry in Ryu Ga Gotoku Studios and Sega's critically acclaimed open world beat'em up action game, titled Whereabouts of Light & Darkness, will center its combat around turn-based mechanics. This was certainly seen as very unexpected, to say the least.

The main protagonist will also be…

RETRO REBOOT!! Primal Rage (Sega Saturn)

Because I grew up loving Kaiju like Godzilla, I always wanted a 16 bit tournament fighter featuring the larger than life creatures that I could control at my whim. Well, we never got that here in the United States. Godzilla Kaijuu Daikessen was released for the Super Famicom, but never saw an international release. The closest I had at the time was…

RETRO REBOOT!! Super Mario World

Super Mario Bros. 3 was one of the earliest video games I can remember that achieved a high degree of mainstream hype prior to its release and lived up to it afterwards, leaving its stamp on video game history.

RETRO REBOOT!! Circus Caper (NES)

Some games, man, some games. Circus Caper ranks as one of those NES titles I'd sum up as obnoxious.
