RETRO REBOOT!! Fighter's History (SNES)

The term knock-off generally carries negative connotations and is met with eye rolling reactions. Throughout the early 90's, the golden period of fighting games brought along its many copycats. I fathom to think about the literal dozens of that one guy who has to own that ONE game who rushed out to buy an Atari Jaguar just to say he owns and plays…

RETRO REBOOT!! Zelda II The Adventure of Link (NES)

I'm on record for Listing Zelda II as being in one of my top five favorite games in the franchise. The first one was memorable as hell. You're an elf kid, you got no true destination.

RETRO REBOOT!! Virtua Cop (Sega Saturn)

It's a discussion I intend to save for another day, but when I define retro, there's some cornerstones that were very indicative of the time. Light gun games are one of them.

RETRO REBOOT!! Herc's Adventures (Playstation)

Herc's Adventures is one of those games that began the swan song for an era of gaming. In terms of tone and design, anyways. Perhaps a tad melodramatic, but as the 90's moved forward and marketing geared more towards the 18-34 demographic, there were less charming and colorful games like Herc's Adventures and Blasto in favor of more cinematic and…
