The first console I ever owned was a hand-me-down Atari 2600 given to us by an aunt. It only had three games that I can remember: Combat, my personal favorite AstroBlast, and then the infamous Atari hit Space Invaders. The problem was, at 4-5 years old, I…
The time has come, for the epic conclusion to Harold’s Cool Adventure. We reach the end of the road, and confront the final, terrifying Truth behind the insidious Alien Soda Conspiracy!
Having forgotten to upload this over the weekend like usual, Retro Revelations realizes their mistake, and gets that shit up late anyway! It’s round three of the lost Ms. Pac-Man Game Challenge, and Corey, who “isn’t good at Pac-Man” (his words), is up to bat! …
As the conspiracy deepens, Harold finds himself stuck on a train whose only destination…is Madness!
In part two of the Lost Ms. Pac-Man Game Challenge, Harold is up to bat. Can he join the 10,000 club, or will he gobble his way into oblivion?
Sometimes in life, you just have to learn to follow where the hands point you.
Time for some Lost Episode action! We originally recorded a set of “Game Challenge” episodes for Ms. Pac-Man, but realized after the fact that the recording messed up, and cut off part of the screen. But the episodes are just too good otherwise to leave on the…
So now it’s time to dive into another part of what I’ve privately dubbed “The Harold Trilogy”. Last time on the Sega Genesis, Harold played one of his “childhood favorites”, Global Gladiators, and it was…certainly an experience. And NOW he’s back with another of his Genesis favorites,…
First we touched on the Namco arcade classic, Pac-Man. And now, it’s time to look at their OTHER perennial “Golden Age” hit, the space shooter that truly defined the “shmup” genre, Galaga!
In the newest installment of “Forgotten Gems”, I talk about one of my earliest NES games, a fairly rare and fun little number called “Arkista’s Ring”.
And now for the epic (and frustrating) conclusion to Tiny Toons on NES! All that’s left is Montana Max’s mansion, and boy…is it a doozy.
After the sheer terror of that goddamn city level, Konami gives you a “break” by throwing Wacky Land your way! YAY!
So today we look at a strange “NES port” of Disney’s Aladdin, that Corey decided to try out. Enjoy!
Now the stuff officially hits the fan. Life in the 90s was no joke. Especially in the Big City, with all sorts of hoodlums and jerkass dogs, throwing trash and things at you at every single turn. The game turns into an almost unreasonable obstacle course, and…
Here is a video game cover tune by a great artist I discovered years ago, Ryan8bit! This song is called “Can’t Escape the Sorrow”, a cover of Edward’s theme from (in my humble opinion) one of the greatest gaming soundtracks of all time, from my personal favorite…
Haunted forests are some serious stuff. Giant bees, annoying bats, spooky trees, and even an evil cave!
Just in time for Wrestlemania Weekend, in the interest of fairness, I take the “Wrestlemania Arcade” challenge myself, and since Corey already played my FAVORITE wrestler, The Undertaker, I play my SECOND fav. wrestler of all time, Bret “The Hitman” Hart. *SPOILER* The trick was, after we…
Part 2 of Tiny Toons is live, and even though Corey is distracting me with ridiculous (and gross) talk, the game is already starting to get a bit…loony.
The mediocrity continues, as Big Jay takes his turn at Midway’s Wrestlemania arcade classic. He decides to play the Narcissist himself, Lex Luger, and see if the power or Red, White and Blue can take him to greatness!
Well now, it’s time to share a little something different. Ever try to play a game when you really aren’t in the mood, or not fully in the right mindframe to be playing it? Well, that’s what happened with this, one of the earlier Youtube game playthroughs.…
More Saturday Rasslin’ Action, with Corey taking a crack at playing the Undertaker!
Moving on from the early 2017 Capcom-fest, it’s time to look at one of first video games I ever experienced as a kid, arguably the single most popular and successful arcade game of all time, 1980’s Pac-Man, by Namco!
With WWE Wrestlemania 33 right around the corner, I thought there was no time like the present to share the Game Challenge we did of us trying to play the mid-90s Midway Wrestlemania Arcade game!
The true Final Fight is about to begin! Will Haggar and Co. win the day?
Last Chance! It’s come down to Corey vs. Ivan, and this time…it’s personal!
So over on Retro Revelations, early last year, I decided to undertake a ginormous project entitled “Best of the Best: 20 Years in Life and Entertainment”. It was my attempt to outdo the simple “Best of the Year” type stuff that many people do, and in typical Me…
Time for some more street brawlin’, punch flyin’, gang bustin’ action!
Corey joins us for Round 2, as we try to beat the “Ironman” at his own game. Literally.
As the LAST bit of Capcom action for now (honest), it’s time for the FINAL Fight! Haggar’s daughter has been taken, he’s got a certain set of skills, and with some help, he’s gonna get her back!
Shaking things up a bit, it’s time for a bit of racing action. Specifically, Ivan “Ironman” Stewart’s Super Off Road!
So we kicked off 2017 by celebrating one of the greatest games ever made, Mega Man 2. But as a final bit of celebration, we would be utterly remiss if we didn’t share one of THE most hailed aspects of such a beloved game: the amazing soundtrack.…
Now it’s Reed’s turn to play Mega Man 2, as it’s one of his favorite games as well. So he decided to take the Game Challenge, and see if he could beat the game without getting a single Game Over!
This is it! The epic conclusion to our Mega Man 2 odyssey! The final showdown with that nefarious fiend, Dr. Wily!
So it turns out, the game DOESN’T end when you defeat the 8 Robot Masters! Now we head to the TOTALLY INCONSPICUOUS Secret Lair, of that nefarious arch-fiend, Dr. Wily!
Emboldened by his victory over the first Mega Man arcade game, Reed sees if lightning will strike twice with it’s sequel, The Power Fighters!
It’s down to the final two Robot Masters, and it’s the none other than the rhyming duo of Flash Man and Crash Man!
Reed takes a crack at the rare but awesome arcade “fighter”, Mega Man: The Power Battle!
Episode 3 is live, and it’s all about the Metal, man!
The Mega Man 2 adventure continues. And Quick Man’s stage is some serious business.
Well, it’s a New Year, 2017, and it’s going to be a year of bigger and better things for Retro Revelations. To kick things off, my pal Reed has his “official” non-Game-Challege debut, joining me as I play one of my personal favorite games of all time:…
