In a follow up to my Ninja Gaiden Same Name, Different Game spectacular, it’s Ninja Gaiden Shadow! A weird little Game Boy game that kind of is, kind of isn’t Ninja Gaiden.
It’s the 50th episode of Same Name, Different Game, so I decided to go ALL OUT and get a bunch of cool people to help me! Folks from all over the world drop in to talk about different versions of Tecmo’s blockbuster series. Enjoy!
More Gradius! In this installment of Obscure Old Games (which is actually the 21st, not 20th), Roger looks at one of the best installments in Konami’s flagship shoot-’em-up franchise.
I’m a big shoot-’em-up fan, and it’s been a minute since I covered one, so what better time to take a look at Gradius III on the SNES and in the arcade!
It’s that time of year. “The Radiant” Joey Pink is back on Same Name, Different Game because it’s Wrestlemania Weekend, don’t you know. And this time out, it’s PS1 vs. N64 (with a little Game Boy thrown in) as he looks at WWF War Zone.
It’s Wrestlemania season, fellow frogs, so let’s talk about grapplin’ games! The Roger has come back, and he’s got the first ever Five Reasons Wrestlemania episode with him. And what other system could it be? It’s got to be the N64!
Videogames were a mistake, folks. Or, at least, X-Men videogames were mostly a mistake. LJN was a mistake. And both of these totally unique games with the same title were absolutely a mistake. Two different devs get a crack at Wolverine and neither can get him right.
Man, Roger has looked at ten episodes worth of SEGA and Nintendo stuff, but this is the first time he’s going Sony. So let’s take a look at Five (mostly) exclusive titles on the PS1!
Hey, you know that NBA Jam video I was in over on Game vs. Game? It’s right under this post, but if you haven’t seen it, it’s here: https://youtu.be/pK3-2Pzoank Well, this is part two of that, featuring Eric… from Game vs. Game. You know, that thing you should have…
Another holiday video! It’s the sequel to the last one… Dynamite Deka 2, known here as Dynamite Cop!, but either way, it’s the sequel to Die Hard Arcade!
Merry Christmas and yippee-ki-yay! It’s time already for another SNDG Xmas episode and once again, it’s games based (loosely) on Die Hard! SEGA did a bang-up job, but which version is best? You’ll have to watch to find out!
The Wii is TEN years old now. So that makes it retro, right? Let’s celebrate by looking at five exclusive titles for the system!
A short episode between Halloween and Christmas tie-ins, I’m taking on Data East’s arcade brawler and its Genesis port!
It’s Halloween Part 3! I’m looking at how Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts stacks up on the SNES vs. the GBA!
Roger’s back with our second Halloween video this year (one more to go)! He’s looking at five games on five different SEGA systems that never left their respective platforms and are all SPOOKY.
It’s Halloween season! So here’s the first of three Halloween videos coming from me this month. This one is on a little-known side-scrolling action game for the Super Famicom: Majyuuou.
This week was the 20th anniversary of the N64 launch in North America! Here are five games that remain exclusive to the platform!
It’s the N64’s 20th birthday in North America this week, so why not look at an N64 game for the first time on this show? It’s N64 vs. Arcade to see if the home port holds up!
The Super Summer ends by riding off into the sunset. I also spend some time encapsulating the 16-bit war.
Roger is back! This week marks the 25th anniversary of the SNES making its way to the US, so here’s five games that have never left the platform!
Do you like obscure brawlers from the 16-bit era? Do you like River City Ransom? Then you should check out this episode! It’s on a River City Ransom sequel that never hit the US!
The Super Summer continues as I take a look at Super Double Dragon on the SNES and the Super Famicom!
I went to TOOMANYGAMES! And while I was there, I hosted a panel with Eric from Game vs. Game, Dan from Console Wars and Adam from Gunstar Reviews! We talked about the history of ports and version! You should watch it!
Roger takes a look at the SNES Strider clone, Run Saber on this edition of Obscure Old Games!
This is the beginning of the Super Summer! I’m doing episodes all summer related strictly to the Super NES, and we’re starting with the final licensed NES game released in North America: Wario’s Woods. Included is a bit of history on the SNES and its launch. Enjoy!
Spider-Man and the X-Men have both returned to movie theatres, so I’m taking them both on in one game for the SNES and the Genesis!
Five years ago, I took on the original MK in the most watched episode of the show. Now, I’m taking on the sequel. More blood, more fatalities, more of everything! It’s Mortal Kombat II!
Roger the Retrogaming Puppet is back with a new installment of Five Reasons! This time, we’re looking at the Japanese Turbografx, A.K.A. the PC Engine!
Roger the Retrogaming Puppet is The Roger this time out, talking about the sole wrestling title for Sega’s short-lived 16-bit CD add-on!
My wrestling alter-ego Joey Pink makes his return because it’s that time of year. Wrestlemania time! This time out, we look at WWF Raw on the 32x, Game Gear and Xbox.
In an Obscure Old addendum to the two part Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice special I did on Same Name, Different Game, here’s a look at a very late-era GBA title from the 2D masters at WayForward.
Part two of the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Special! Superman! Five games, five chances to be Super. Does anyone really take advantage? You’ll have to watch to find out.
Roger felt he was getting to Nintendo-focused, so we decided to make this one all about what Nintendon’t! Five exclusive titles for the Genesis!
I’m trying to get excited for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, so to help myself I’m looking at some Batman games this month. I already did the Tim Burton’s Batman games years ago, so now it’s time to take on the four Adventures of Batman and Robin…
Yippee-ki-yay and merry Christmas! For this year’s holiday season, I’m taking on the gold standard for Christmas movies and action movies: Die Hard on the NES and the PC Engine!
Roger is back with a new Obscure Old Games, and this time, it’s a Christmas Special! Let’s take a look at Die Hard Trilogy!
I’m looking at Star Wars for the Famicom vs. Star Wars on the NES in this go ’round! If you like what you see, consider supporting me on Patreon: http://patreon.com/samenamedifferentgame
Roger is back with five non-spooky reasons to own an NES!
I’m on the stairs from The Exorcist to take on this classic NES and Famicom action gem, discussing in detail the changes made when it came to North America.
Roger the Retrogaming Puppet looks where the NES intersects spooky games for the first ever Five Reasons Halloween Special!
