What ever happened to the great 2D shooters? With so many remakes and retro themed titles now available on the current consoles, it seems like the only games that are being remade are either action or role playing games. Thank goodness for the quality of our past consoles. They were made to last many decades of use. Unlike today’s computer based gaming systems. Continue reading
I recall many hours in the arcades and then on the VCS (Atari 2600) and one of the addictive aspects of the game play was the need to make the hamburgers. Running out of salt was almost always a death sentence. From what I’ve seen so far from the new BurgerTime World Tour from Monkey Paw Games, it seems like for “the most part” that the heart and soul of the original great classic hasn’t been effected by the transition into 3D. For the full press release and latest game play video please continue……. Continue reading

Doom…? What can we really say about Doom? Doom is a game that sparked a mainstream addiction to the FPS genre. Yes, I know, this is not the first nor the best FPS that launched back in the day. Doom was how ever the game that IMHO brought in the crowds both the FPS player and even those who never liked playing first person shooters.
According the news release on the Microsoft News Center website, when Avatar Kinect is launched it will bring facial recognition to Xbox Kinect. As I read on…. Kinect will be able to mimic your faces emotions…so if you smile your avatar will smile too.
We’re going back…wayyyyyy…back.! Most of the new generation of gamers would believe that the Metal Gear series came about when the NES was launched. The fact is, that Metal Gear launched on the classic computer called the MSX2 back in the late 80’s. The original Metal Gear, created by Hideo Kojima, launched in 1987 for the MSX2 computer but was only released in Japan and Europe. I remember messing with one of these bad boys in the early 90’s over a friends house but wasn’t interested in the MSX2 due to the lack of popularity, at least around my neighborhood at the time. We were all Commodore 64 fanboys and were plenty happy with those games and graphics. But, when he loaded up Metal Gear 2 on his MSX2, I was blown away by the graphics, sounds and music quality. Even if we couldn’t read the text in the game, the game play was simple and the controller only had two buttons like the NES so it was easy to learn the game. We struggled to learn the keyboard shortcuts…lol.
In today’s Lost INTROs, we’ll head down the lost path of the SEGA Master System. Even though the SMS didn’t have as a robust library of games like it’s competition, the SMS did have quite a few gems that shouldn’t be missed by any hardcore retro game collector. It’s easy to find the PAL version, but the US cart is a great find if you can get a copy with case and manual. We’ll be capturing some game play footage very soon. For now here’s the short but sweet intro cinematic to Golden Axe Warrior exclusive RPG title on the SEGA Master System.
