The Sony PSP Retro Compilation Library

The Sony PSP Retro Compilation Library

Presented by noiseredux The PSP is no doubt a bit of an emulator powerhouse. But for those of us who are more interested in collecting physical media, it should be noted that the PSP is also a great system to showcase various retro compilations. Considering what a wonderfully cheap handheld it is to collect for (at least domestically), you can actually build up a rather impressive retro library with just a pocket full of spending money and a small stack [...]

Yu Suzuki Gameworks: Dreamcast Arcade Compilation

As a tribute for the master and look back for his fans, Yu Suzuki’s Gameworks Volume 1, was a book and Dreamcast GD-ROM combo that covers his works from the early 1980’s to the release of Virtua Fighter 4.

X-Play Reviews Sega Genesis Collection

The Sega Genesis Collection has apparently emerged as one of the best classic game compilations of all time. (If there was a Gamecube version, I would buy it for myself). I was pretty happy to see our friends at X-Play have taken the time to share the Genesis Collection with its television audience and provided some relevant commentary on the compilation itself.

New Pac-Man Collection and More Availible for Vintage Atari Consoles

I’ve known about AtariAge and their excellent resources for classic Atari fans, but I had no idea that they sold homebrew game cartridges on their site until this recent Kotaku post. Anyway, the AtariAge community has put together a homebrew compilation of Pac-Man games and created a spiffy little package that is playable on the Atari 7800. This Pac-Man compilation includes: Pac-Man Puck Man Hangly Man Ultra Pac-Man Random Mazes Ms. Pac-Man Ms. Pac-Attack Ms. Random Mazes You can find [...]

Meta-Review: Street Fighter Anthology – PS2

The Street Fighter Alpha Anthology has hit the streets and is ready to give 2D fighter fans a retro fix on their PS2s. While SNK has been quickly putting out a number of its old titles via emulated compilations, Capcom took the time to create fully arcade-authentic ports for the PS2 resulting in a very solid compilation. There may not be a ton of special features such as video clips or documentaries, there is some solid gameplay and a great [...]

Meta-Review: Gradius Collection – PSP

Even though I’m not particularly interested in the PSP as a whole, it does have a handful of redeeming retro games under its belt, and as I elluded to earlier, Konami’s headlining shmup series is one of the latest additions. With the latest PSP compilation you will receive five beloved Gradius titles in one exciting game package. Spanning more than 20 years of shooting action, Gradius Collection includes… Gradius Gradius II Gradius III Gradius IV, Gradius Gaiden Gradius Gaiden is [...]

Megaman X Collection Released – PS2, Gamecube

The highly-anticipated Mega Man X Collection has finally been released here in the US. I personally suck at the games, but I know there are a lot of Megaman fans out there (hence all the games). The compilation is being released for both the PS2 and Gamecube (I guess XBox gamers aren’t much for Megaman) and follows up on the original Megaman Collection quite nicely. It features all six of their first Mega Man X adventures and the first US [...]

Gradius Collection on PSP

The Sony PSP is finally getting some good Shmup lovin’ — at least in Japan. No word on a release anywhere else, but Gradius Portable will be a compilation of Gradius I, II, II, IV and Gradius Gaiden. That’s not a bad lineup at all — especially when you consider the formerly PSX-exclusive Gaiden. Options in the portable compilation include saving states by pausing the game, toggling slowdown, playing in widescreen, and restarting from any previous save made. A movie [...]
