Review: Comix Zone – Genesis/Megadrive

This colorful beat-em-up was released near the end of the life of the Sega Genesis (and came in those cruddy cardboard boxes). Instead of featuring a hero that simply walked down a city street and beat people up, Comix Zone had the game’s hero sucked into his own comic book creation and battle his own […]

10 Games That Actually NEED A Sequel

As just about every gamer has noticed, the gaming market has been flooded with sequel upon sequel (Tony Hawk, anyone?) — many of which aren’t a great improvement over the last increment. You can’t blame the publishers too much as they wouldn’t be putting them out if gamers weren’t buying them in droves. But wouldn’t […]

Vote To Support a New 2D Sonic

There’s a new petition online to try and convince Sega to continue making the 2D Sonic games we all loved. Actually, it’s asking for a 16-bit game, but, as you can tell from my recent “Sega, I Dare You” post, I support taking full advantage of the newer systems’ power — as long as they […]

Under Defeat – New 2D Shooter Announced for Dreamcast

The Dreamcast will just not die. Yes, ANOTHER 2D shooter is on its way for everybody’s favorite white box. Hot on the heals of the February 2006 release of Radiligy, a 2D helicopter shooter named “Under Defeat” is scheduled for March 2006 release in Japan. Under Defeat is a late NAOMI arcade release that is […]

Dreamcast Prototype Insipires Revolution Controller?

I thought this was interesting — Blogsip noticed something on Green Hill Zone about a potential Nights into Dreams sequal, the originally planned Monkey Ball Dreamcast game, and other were slated to use a Dreamcast controller that was similar to what Nintendo has revealed to be the Revolution controller. Blogsip asks, “Could it possibly be […]

Sega, I Dare You!

Yes, Sega, I am daring you to go 2D. Not on a handheld — you’ve done that very well already. I’m talking about going 2D on a console. By the looks of Sonic Rush and your Sonic Advance games, you still know how to make quality 2D Sonic games. When it comes to many 3D […]

Racketboy’s Top 20 Retro Games of 2005

This year, we have seen the curiosity with retro gaming grow among the mainstream gaming audience and it seems that game publishers are clueing into the fact. While it is unfortunate that publishers seem to focus most of their retro efforts at the handheld market, there were also a handful of excellent console compilations to […]

FAQ: Can You Play Sega Saturn Games on the Dreamcast?

On occassion I take some time to answer some questions that many new retro gamers ask. This time I will address a popular question about Sega’s potential backwards compatability — will a Dreamcast play Sega Saturn games? Unfortuantely, the answer is no. The Saturn and Dreamcast are actually very different machines in terms of their […]

The Dreamcast Is Coming Back?!?

In Japan at least, that is. Sega will supposedly be selling Dreamcasts again in Japan. There was a German site that had more information, but it was recently taken down. Engadget has this to say Sega’s not flapping their yapper so far as we can tell, but German gaming site is claiming they’re going […]

Spreading The Word About Neglected Games

I want to thanks the thousands upon thousands of readers that checked out my latest piece, “Top 20 Games That Nobody Played — But You Should“. I spent 3 full days piecing the thing together — painfully adding and subtracting titles I believed in. I find it funny to pour through the hundreds of comments […]

Game Spotlight: Shining Force

Ever since I bought Advance Wars for the GBA, I’ve been facinated by strategy games. It’s a shame I didn’t get into the genre earlier. But over the last few years I’ve tried to make up for lost time and dive into some of the older titles that built up to the titles such as […]

Top 20 Games That Nobody Played – But You Should

There are hundreds of excellent games that have been released over the last two decades that never quite got the attention and sales they deserved. Many times it is because of lousy marketing, but at least some of these games find an afterlife as a cult classic. While not all of these titles are “retro”, […]

Meta-Review: Power Stone 2 – Sega Dreamcast

The original Power Stone was one of the most exciting launch titles on the Dreamcast. It built on many of the arena fighting concepts established by Poy Poy on the Playstation. Power Stone was also Capcom’s first successful attempt at bringing their quirky by killer style of fighting to the third dimension. Power Stone 2 […]
