Despite an overwhelming demand from fans for a follow up, the Dreamcast's iconic series Shenmue has been somewhat forgotten by Sega. With just over a decade since the last official release arrived, it would appear that fans have decided to take matters into their own hands. Believe it or not but a HD remake of Shenmue is in the works.
Twenty five years ago a gaming accessory was unleashed on the world that would change the playing field forever. The Power Glove held such great promise within its futuristic fingertips, although the technology within failed to impress. Fast forward to today and this unusual controller has since become one ingrained in pop-culture, modern modificat [ … ]
Back in May the creator of the Mega CD FMV hit Night Trap confirmed that the cult classic would be making a return in the near future. Just mere months later, a Kickstarter has been launched with the aim of re-releasing the 1992 video game on modern platforms under the new name Night Trap ReVamped.
Over the years we've seen our fair share of unusual and plain bonkers modifications to classic games. Take for example Sonic The Hedgehog's unofficial debut on the Super Nintendo through a hacked version of Speedy Gonzales. These prior efforts, however, are about to seem pale after one gamer's adjustments to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - p [ … ]
Not too long ago a mass storage solution arrived on the Sega Dreamcast, replacing the console's internal disc drive. As fantastic as the GDEMU is, it would appear a much more advanced alternative has hit the scene via Russia - the USB-GDROM Controller.
Back in 2006 the retro gaming publishers Super Fighter Team secured the rights to translate and re-release on cartridge a long lost Chinese Sega Mega Drive / Genesis RPG. Beggar Prince was one of the first new titles to hit the 16-bit console in years, and needless to say it sold out pretty quick. Several print runs later, gamers wanting to get the [ … ]
While they may not be the cheapest apps around, it's always a pleasure seeing Square Enix dipping into their back catalogue and porting classics to modern devices. Successful series such as Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest can easily be enjoyed once again on the go, along with the likes of the Super Nintendo adventure Secret of Mana - the latter of w [ … ]
In the mid-eighties, isometric platforming adventures were all the rage. Ultimate Play The Game made a name for themselves through titles such as Alien 8 and Knight Lore, whilst other developers churned out classics like Head Over Heels. This trend then made its way into licensed tie-ins, with the superhero Batman soon stepping into the 3D world. A [ … ]
Games which have a prolonged development process usually have issues – Duke Nukem anyone? The Bureau: XCOM Declassified had been announced way back in 2006 and in 2010 it was to be a first person shooter named ‘XCOM.’ 2K Games set their demo stall out: a 1950s/60s setting where agents do battle with an alien masquerading as a housewife. Then all he [ … ]
Not too long ago this year an army of retro gamers descended on the first of many Video Game Market events. This blockbuster event organised by RetroCollect was not only a place for retro gamers to meet up, but also one to find countless bargains and rarities under one roof. After months of planning, we’re pleased to announce that the second Video [ … ]
To even think that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles debuted three decades ago this year will no doubt make you feel old. As retro gamers though, we’re used to such birthdays with both Sonic and Mario also celebrating big numbers too. With this in mind, several members of the community have taken pizza time to the next level with their stunning (and [ … ]
In 2002 Capcom resurrected the PlayStation survival horror hit on the Nintendo Gamecube with all new visuals, twists, and turns. Thirteen years later, it appears that the Resident Evil remake is now being brought to modern consoles with even more gruesome detail than ever before.
Twenty two years ago Psygnosis launched on the Commodore Amiga a frustrating-yet-addictive puzzler starring an unlikely vegetable hero. Bill's Tomato Game was a huge hit, one which was supposedly due to hit the Mega Drive next. While this Sega plant never bore fruit, those currently in possession of the only known prototype have created a run of re [ … ]
Throughout Nintendo's colourful past, their handheld systems have usually been given a masculine name. While there may have been pink versions of the Game Boy, Nintendo have never referred to any of these as being a Game Girl. Having said that, one retro gamer is about to rewrite history by modifying a Nintendo Virtual Boy into a Virtual Girl.
In 1988 British powerhouse Ocean released a unique looking isometric 3D adventure for both the ZX Spectrum and Atari ST known as Where Time Stood Still. While many Amiga gamers were patiently awaiting their version of the game, it sadly never reached the Commodore platform - at least until now. Twenty six years later, Commodore Amiga aficionados ha [ … ]
