Retro Gaming Life E-zine October Issue! Happy Halloween!

Here is October's issue! It's based on Dracula Kid for the Famicom. It's known as

Akumaj┼Ź Special: Boku Dracula-kun in Japan. This issue is filled of reviews for Cadash, Pocket Monsters Green, and more! Definitely check it out on the E-zine section! 


Game-bit of the day 612: Phantasmagoria (PC)

Happy Halloween! This is the perfect game for today! It's the spooky and revolutionary Phantasmagoria for the PC! This game comes in Seven discs! It's insane! It's a horror story of course. It's an obscurity if you ask me. You have to play it, I would tell you what it's all about but don't want to spoil everything. Hey, your main protagonist is a girl!


Finds 945: More Masterful Finds! Double Dragon & Zillion!

Two more great titles for the Sega Master System. I bet most of you guys didn't know that Double Dragon for the Master System is the better version of both the NES and Master System. Why is that? Because it's actually two players! Take that Nintendo! I bet you also didn't know that Zillion was based on an anime and that was unheard of back in the late 80s. Video games and anime together? Blasphemy! Anyways, two games you should definitely check out! 


October 30, 2016

Retro Gaming Life E-zine September Back Issue!

The September Issue is based on a cult classic for the Sega Genesis called El Viento! It's a challenging game and definitely one to check out. We also have a full cast of heroines in this issue as it's mostly based on them! Definitely check this one out! 


Game-bit of the day 611: Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV (PS1)

This is a game for people with a lot of patience and love for Asian culture and history. The series has been around since the NES era, so there are people out there at enjoy them. 


Finds 944: Assault Suit Leynos for PS4

This is a pretty interesting game but tough as heck! If you are into the whole mech robot thing then this is the game for you. Definitely a must have for your PS4!


Finds 943: Demon's Crest is Finally Mine!

Another gem to add to my collection. Demon's Crest is just a beautiful game to play through and a pricey one. I've been wanting to get this gem for a while and I'm happy it's finally in my collection and not going anywhere! Be sure to check it out! 


October 29, 2016

Retro Gaming Life E-zine August Back Issue!

Here is an X-citing issue! HAHA! Be sure to check this issue out as we take a look at Mega Man X for the SNES. Also, RPG madness with Dragon Warrior 3 and more endings for your favorite games as well as tips! 


Game-bit of the day 610: Kartia (PS1)

This game is a little obscure but fun. It's one of those gems you have to try out and you'll either like it or hate it. You have been warned !


Finds 942: Golvellius for the Sega Master System!

Ever wanted to play a Zelda type of game for the Sega Master System? Look no further! This is Golvellius Valley of Doom and it plays a lot like Zelda. It even goes further by giving you different types of gameplay such as side scrolling and even a shoot 'em up type of game. It's everything in one and quite underrated! Get it now! 


October 28, 2016

Retro Gaming Life E-zine July Back Issue!

Zelda makes the cover on this issue. Not only that, but we also talk about lots of games including a Kunio game that never made it here. Check it out! 


Game-bit of the day 609: Ehrgeiz (PS1)

This is a very odd game that's actually lots of fun. It comes with mini games, a fighting game, and even a Quest mode. Try the quest mode as it's quite good. 


Finds 941: 7th Dragon for Nintendo 3DS!

Another wonder RPG for the 3DS as if there aren't too many of them out there. This one is released by Sega and it's definitely one of the better ones out there. Definitely check it out!


October 27, 2016

Retro Gaming Life E-zine June Back Issue!

Streets of Rage makes an appearance in this issue. Also, a very naughty Unknown World of Bootlegs where we take a look at porno games! Lots of endings for the coolest games and more! 


Game-bit of the day 608: Arc the Lad Collection (PS1)

A very nice release by Working Designs. It's a very fun RPG that comes in five discs! Play them all why don't ya~! 


Finds 940: Sega Master System Haul!

This was a pick up I did some time ago but never got around to post about it. It's a beautiful Sega Master System haul with Power Base Converter. I can play these games on my Retron V without having to bring out my good old Master System. It's very handy for when you want to preserve your older consoles. Lets face it, they are getting harder to find! 


October 26, 2016

Retro Gaming Life E-zine March Back Issue!

If you missed it, be sure to check out a back issue from March of this year! It's full of goodies! 


Game-bit of the day 607: Phalanx (SNES)

This gotta be the most crazy looking and weird looking cover art for a game that doesn't even have anything to do with an old man. This is a shoot 'em up with a bizarre cover art. The game is good though..


October 23, 2016

Game-bit of the day 606: Dungeons and Dragons (Sega Saturn)

This is beauty for the Sega Saturn. The games are ports of the original arcade games we played back in the early 90s. They're so much fun to play through especially with company. 


October 22, 2016

Game-bit of the day 605: Cyborg Hunter (SMS)

This is a very fun game for the Sega Master System. It's a sci-fi sidescroller full of fun levels and wonderful monsters! errr robots! 


October 21, 2016

Game-bit of the day 604: Tokyo Mirage Sessions Special Edition (Wiiu)

This is a very odd combination of RPG elements. Both Nintendo and Atlus teamed up for a very cool game and the first that made it to the Wiiu. This console isn't getting the love it deserves! 


October 20, 2016

Game-bit of the day 603: Faria (FC)

This has a very awesome cover art. I love how it looks and will probably show some art of it by the time you're reading this. It's Faria for the Famicom! We did got this game in the USA but the difference in cover arts is well...lets just leave it like that.
