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.
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.
The Capcom Chronology continues as I take a look at UN Squadron on the SNES and in the arcade!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
Five years after teasing this episode originally, I’m finally delivering. Kept you waiting, huh?
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…
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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…
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
