RETRO REBOOT - Breakthru (NES)

Most arcade ports to the NES seemed to go pretty well for the NES, as far as I can remember. I only briefly played this in the arcades at Chuck E Cheese and decided that getting killed in Zaxxon was more fun because it was in space. As far as a home port goes, Breakthru isn’t too bad, though it is hindered by some of the many problems most NES…

It's 1996. X-Men vs Street Fighter opened up Pandora's box when Capcom's World Warriors crossed fists with the mutants from Marvel Comics, launching the Vs line of games under the Capcom umbrella. The games used the same CP-System II engine that many Capcom games utilized, including Super Street Fighter II Turbo, X-Men Children of the Atom and the…

RETRO REBOOT - Digital Pinball: Last Gladiators

I love myself a good pinball table. Brawlers, SHMUPs, and fighters were my regular quarter munchers in an arcade room, but the pinball table is like putting a Rubix Cube on a living room coffee table; at some point, you're going to feel inclined to mess with it. Two of my favorite tables were Space Jam and Terminator 2. While it was hard to replicate…

RETRO REBOOT - Boogerman A Pick And Flick Adventure (Sega Genesis)

I laugh at a game like 2018's Agony, one of the most aptly named titles ever. Watching that try to be as edgy and controversial as possible in a time where most messed up fetishes are a Google search away is almost adorable. Agony doesn't have the refined dignity of 1994's Boogerman, a game that may as well have been produced by the kid who wrote the…
