Retro Gaming Theatre – Streets of Rage (Mega Drive)

by on Sep.02, 2012, under Retro Gaming Theatre

This week’s episode of Retro Gaming Theatre features one of my all-time favourite beat ’em ups – Streets of Rage.

Though thoroughly superceded in just about every way by Streets of Rage II, the original game still boasts an excellent soundtrack and can be quite challenging in spots.

We played through to about the end of the second level in this video, but definitely could have gone further.

Retro Gaming Theatre: Lylat Wars (Nintendo 64)

by on Aug.26, 2012, under Retro Gaming Theatre

Lylat Wars is the PAL version of Star Fox 64, named as such due to a preexisting copyright. It’s arguably one of the best games on the Nintendo 64.

This video recording was actually taken as a test record before we sorted out what we were doing for this piece, so it’s quite a bit shorter than some of our other videos. We only ended up recording the first level and I did quite poorly.

Retro Gaming Theatre: WWF Royal Rumble (Mega Drive)

by on Aug.19, 2012, under Retro Gaming Theatre

This week’s subject for Retro Gaming Theatre is WWF Royal Rumble, arguably the best pre-AKI wrestling game released. We took on the Royal Rumble mode with Hulk Hogan, successfully eliminating 10 of the 11 opponents. The Undertaker ruined my perfect run – the cheeky sod.

Some might argue that the sequel, WWF Raw, was better, but I prefer the wrestler selection and slower pace of Royal Rumble.

Retro Gaming Theatre: Alex Kidd in Miracle World (Master System)

by on Aug.12, 2012, under Retro Gaming Theatre

In the latest episode of Retro Gaming Theatre, we threw on Alex Kidd in Miracle World, arguably one of the most popular games on the Sega Master System. I did pretty well when you consider that I haven’t touched the game in ten years.

Well, except when I managed to accidentally reset the console instead of pausing it, hence the abrupt ending.

Retro Gaming Theatre: Ecco the Dolphin (Mega Drive)

by on Aug.05, 2012, under Retro Gaming Theatre

For the second episode of Retro Gaming Theatre, we’re taking everybody’s favourite video game dolphin out for a 20th birthday celebration. Revel in my ineptitude at nose bashing blue bottles, along with being bored with the game’s horrible labyrinthine level design.

Ecco the Dolphin was a moderate success for Sega. They ported the original game to the Master System, Game Gear and Mega CD. It also spawned a handful of sequels in Ecco II: The Tides of Time, Ecco. Jr and Ecco the Dolphin: Defender of the Future.

Apart from inclusions in recent Sega collections, Ecco has been absent from the public eye since the PlayStation 2 release of Defender for the Future. Will his next appearance be in a video game, or in a can of John West’s finest?
