I’m thankful for the Stooges, but less-so for their videogames.
Did you know Gargoyle’s Quest II did get a port? Not only that, but a port to the home of the first game in the series, the Game Boy! Learn more in my Halloween episode for this year.
Did you know that in Japan, Capcom released a game in the Incredible Machine series using Ghosts ‘n Goblins characters? It’s true! And it’s weird! But also charming!
With Shane Black’s The Predator in theatres now, it seemed like a fine time to take a look at some Predator games. The first movie only had one console game, and it was trash, so I decided to look at some games based on the second movie that…
It’s the end of the Capcom Chronology! I cap off my summer series with a look at one of Capcom’s entries in their classic fighting game series.
Can’t believe I forgot to put this here! It’s the penultimate episode of the Capcom Chronology on Battle Circuit!
The Capcom Chronology continues as Roger looks at five games from Capcom that never left the SNES!
The Capcom Chronology continues as I take a look at UN Squadron on the SNES and in the arcade!
The Capcom Chronology continues! Roger is looking at an unreleased NES game in this outing, a planned sequel to Vulgus called Titan Warriors.
I’m starting a new multi-part series on the history of Capcom! And we begin with one of the earliest home games developed internally by them, Trojan!
I forgot to post this here! Well, better late than never. IntiCreates’ Not Castlevania came out last last month, and Roger took a look! How does it fare? Watch to find out!
He’s not Deadpool, but hey, that guy only has one videogame. This other ultra-violent Marvel mainstay has several! So let’s dig into Punisher games!
My buddy Eric Grider of Game vs. Game and I went down to Chicago over Midwest Gaming Classic weekend and checked out the Galloping Ghost Arcade. While we were there, we hunted down ten games that never left arcades! Try to play them at YOUR local arcade!
Hey, look! There’s a movie out! So I guess I should cover the games, since it seems like the film is aimed at people born after the game came out! Here, I look at the arcade original, NES and SMS versions!
Wrestlemania is a week from today, so you know what that means. Joey Pink has returned once again to cover some grappling games for Same Name, Different Game. And this time, we’re running down one of the greatest game series in wrestling and gaming history: Fire Pro Wrestling.
Finally… The Roger… HAS COME BACK… to Five Reasons. And for this year’s Five Reasons Wrestlemania Special, The Roger says these are five interesting wrestling games on the Japanese Super NES.
Roger is back with another installment of Five Reasons, and this time he’s looking at the Master System that still doesn’t quite fit into your pocket, the Game Gear!
Something different from my usual stuff, but I got a Super NT and I’m unboxing it and putting it through its paces!
As promised last month, I’m going back to games I’ve already covered (but not the versions I covered) once again as I delve into the handheld versions of Beavis and Butt-Head. It’s not pretty.
Following up the most recent Same Name, Different Game on some portable Double Dragon games, Roger is looking at what is probably the best portable Double Dragon: Double Dragon Advance!
I’m going back to some earlier episodes to hit some ports I didn’t before! And I’m starting with a persistent favorite series on this show: Double Dragon! I’ve covered a lot of Double Dragon games on SNDG and this makes it two more! How does it hold up…
The Manniversary has come to a close. It’s… Mega Man! I looked at the NES classic, the Genesis remake, the DOS, um… port? And the Game Gear… adaptation. It’s a mixed bag! But it’s super fun!
We’re back to the Mega Manniversary! This time, we’re looking at way-too-expensive NES title Little Samson, developed by a grip of ex-Capcom folks at Takeru. It’s good! But it’s not worth a thousand bucks.
Oh, my. I forgot to post this one here in the Skirmish Frogs pond. Five Reasons has been a very Nintendo-heavy show thus far. I wanted to take a minute and look at a more offbeat SEGA system (offbeat where I come from). So here’s five exclusive titles…
Five years after teasing this episode originally, I’m finally delivering. Kept you waiting, huh?
Happy Halloween! The third and final part of my 2017 Halloween Trilogy is here! It’s dedicated to one of my favorite retro horror games; Splatterhouse 2!
Roger is back, and like last year’s Five Reasons Halloween episode, it’s a look at five different games on five different systems. Last year was SEGA, this year, Nintendo.
You don’t get a Friday the 13th in October very often, so I knew I needed to take advantage. Kim Justice joins me to talk about Friday the 13th on microcomputers, the NES and modern consoles! Which have aged well? Which play the best? Tune in to find…
The Mega Manniversary continues with this look at an odd entry on the Gamecube. It’s the Battle Network series, but it sort of feels like classic Mega Man. How does that work out? Watch to find out!
I can’t believe I forgot to post this here! A new MvC just came out, so I decided to take a look at the first one, especially since it’s Mega Man’s fighting game debut!
Part two of the Mega Manniversary is Roger’s first entry into the Manniversary and he’s talking about Akira Kitamura’s first post-Mega Man game, Cocoron. It’s not hard to see the Mega Man-ness of Cocoron, but it’s like Mega Man through the filter of a fever dream. It’s pretty…
Did you know Mega Man turns 30 this year? It’s true. So I’m doing a series I’m calling the Mega Manniversary to celebrate! First up? Mega Man 5 on the Game Boy and NES!
Roger is back and this time he’s looking at five games based on comics that never left SEGA’s 16-bit console!
Spider-Man has swung back into movie theatres, so it’s time for me to swing into my retrogame collection to talk about some SEGA Spider-Man titles!
Yes, friends, I’m back and with a look at my favorite Genesis game of all time and its Japan-only port to the Game Gear! Special thanks to Rewind Mike and Eric from Game vs. Game for providing some voiceovers for me!
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.
