As amazing as the TurboGrafx 16 and PC Engine are, the video out ports on the reverse of both iterations of the console are somewhat lacking. While there are modifications and official expansions to address this, they’re anything but ideal. db Electronics, however, is about to address all these issues with their newly announced db Grafx Booster TTP [ … ]
You’ve got to love a good Easter Egg. Over the years, countless developers have locked away secret messages, levels, and visuals deep within the code of the games we know and love. While many of these have since been discovered, there’s occasionally one or two that seem to go amiss - for example, the ability to blast Lemmings using a Super Nintendo [ … ]
The thought of using modern TVs to feed our retro gaming addiction is something many will cringe at. The lack of fidelity in visuals, occasional lag and sometimes seeing no picture all together is enough to leave gamers sticking beside their trusty CRTs. That said, a newly formed accessory manufacturer may finally have the solution to enjoying all [ … ]
If you’ve been keeping a close eye on the homebrew scene as of late, you’ll have noticed that Sierra’s suited sleaze-ball Larry was set for an unofficial appearance on the Nintendo NES. Developers Khan Games have finally finished their port of the game - now dubbed Larry and the Long Look For a Luscious Lover - and have released the game on a physi [ … ]
After almost a year of development behind the scenes, the PSIO team have returned to showcase their PlayStation 1 SD Card ISO loading device in action. With plenty of progress to show, it would appear the device capable of loading games into memory from removable media is nearing release.
Something unexpected has crept up on me, something that has made me realise that I might be getting older, and for once I am glad that I have noticed it. I was going to start this article with something like, "Back in the day..." or "When I was young..." But I thought the better of it. Age has a way of creeping up on you, and when consoles that you [ … ]
As we all know, the 3DS was not Nintendo's first venture into 3D gaming. The fabled Virtual Boy was Nintendo's earlier tried and tested system, which while having many merits, failed commercially. As of today though Nintendo's handheld has successfully brought 3D entertainment back to the gaming world. For retro gamers though, one question remains [ … ]
When you compare the amount of role playing games released in Japan to what English speaking audiences received, there's a saddening number untranslated adventures that have gone a miss. While fan translation groups are working hard to make amends, there's only so much they can do - their efforts, however, don't go amiss! The latest title from the [ … ]
In 1991 video gamers found themselves cast onto the crime-flooded walkways of a once peaceful city, a location three ex-police officers set out to reclaim from the syndicate. Armed with nothing but their bare knuckles, Axel, Adam and Blaze changed the console gaming landscape forever...
Two decades ago this week the Mega Drive was treated to the second part of Sonic The Hedgehog’s third appearance. With Sonic 3 bolted into the cartridge connector of Sonic & Knuckles, gamers could finally sample everything the title had to offer. Despite its greatness, Sonic 3 & Knuckles is the only title Sega are yet to remaster for touchs [ … ]
You’ve all seen those stunning custom made handheld consoles from portable Atari 2600s to Nintendo GameCubes - but have you ever considered building one yourself? Needless to say the very thought of starting from scratch on such a project is daunting, but this may now become a thing of the past.
In the good old days we had the joy of Taito's Bubble Bobble and its eventual successor, Rainbow Islands. There have been many similar games to the 1986 arcade smash over the years, Rodlands and Snow Bros to name a couple. But it took over a decade later for us to receive Irem's completely unnoticed gem: Yoyo's Puzzle Park to arrive on the PlayStat [ … ]
Apart from his recent appearance in Super Smash Bros, Mega Man has had an awfully quiet and disappointing few years. With Capcom doing very little to celebrate their flagship blue-bomber, even the original creator has parted ways with the company to ensure his legacy lives on. Having said that though, Mega Man is making a return alongside Proto Man [ … ]
The PS Vita is quickly becoming the platform of choice for indie developers - I certainly can’t recall another mainstream system being so well supported by small developers with modest backing. The Vita hardware itself is probably a main reason; it is a powerful system and - so I’m told - a fairly painless machine to develop for. This is no doubt h [ … ]
With Scotland recently populating all the news channels with heated political discussions, we thought it was about time to shed some light on the greatest wee video game characters from up North! Believe it or not there's more than just the Highland Lemmings up there, so anyone even THINKING of using the phrase ‘Och aye the noo’ will end up on [ … ]
