Up until October of 2000, video game consoles were just that, systems used almost exclusively for playing video games. However, that month Sony released a system that would change consoles from video game players to home entertainment systems, as well as progressing the world of online console gaming, the Playstation 2. Those features, in addition to backwards compatibility with its predecessor, helped make the PS2, as it is commonly referred, the highest selling video game console ever in terms of units sold worldwide.

With that success came a plethora of games, with nearly all genres represented. NA markets saw the release of more than 1300 games, and there are estimates of more than 3800 games released worldwide.

For us gamers who grew up between the 70s and the 90s, arcade machines often have a special place in our hearts.  Fast forward to now, and there's never been a better time for fans of retro arcade games!  For years (in some cases, even decades) some of these were only accessible to a few surviving arcades and those with decent computer know-how.  As a teen, I couldn't imagine that my adult self would be able to literally go to a Walmart and buy a slightly scaled-down version of the four-player Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cab.

Posted under video, review, Sega Genesis


Today I'm reviewing the only Castlevania game made specifically for a Sega console. Is it a good entry in the series? How does it compare to its Super Nintendo counterpart? I have a number of criticism about how it looks and some of the control limitations, but I had a lot of fun while playing it.

Here is a fun video where I take my WiiU gamepad and make it look like a hoverboard from Back to the Future II. I used the website www.DecalGirl.com and my buddy Tom Ryan who is an artist friend to help me with the rendering of the graphic. Overall it makes it a great piece to  have in my game collection. Hmmm maybe a flux capacitor WiiU console skin next ?

My March started out kind of rough with some failed arrangements that never quite came to fruition. About midway through the month, I set those other projects to the side indefinitely and started fresh on this piece, and the inspiration hit me pretty hard and resulted in what I think is my best cover yet. Final Fantasy IV is a very important game from my childhood as it is to my recollection the first RPG I ever actually finished, and it is still an all-time favorite of mine to this day. The game and of course its music composed by none other than Nobuo Uematsu is full of nostalgia for me, so I was glad to finally get around to this one. Working on Final Fantasy music is always very gratifying for me, so expect to see more in the coming months!

As everyone on this site knows by now, I'm a big shmup fan. It's my favorite genre, and I play a lot of these games. I run the RF Generation Shmup Club here, as well as Shoot the Core-cast, the companion podcast. Because the shooter genre has seen such a renaissance in the past few years, more games are coming out all the time, and it can be hard to keep track of them all. Here are a handful of games to keep your eye on, to help you maybe choose a couple that will click with you.

Posted under RF Jamz, Chiptunes, music, game music


When most people think of video game music, they think of the songs that play in the background while we play our favorite games. Then there's game music covers, where fans use their musical talent to recreate their favorite tracks with real instruments or in a different genre/style. But all too often, people tend to forget about another way video games and music cross paths, and that's chiptune music. In looking over the recent RF Generation donation drive prize lots for 2021, I was excited to see a bundle of chiptune music as one of the options (big thank you to site member ugr for that, by the way!). I also thought it would make for a fun opportunity to celebrate the wonderful music that can be created with retro game consoles.

In this month's episode of the Playcast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) kick it back to the days of the NES and the magic of Disney, as they discuss a handful of Capcom titles they played in February: DuckTales, Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers, and The Little Mermaid.  In the ConcertCast, the guys reminisce about the best 5 shows that they've attended, and even take a little time to mention their worst.  If you're a fan of bidets or are on the fence about buying one, then this is definitely the show for you. What Disney franchises do the guys and their listeners think would make for good video games? And, how do these Disney Capcom titles rank amongst each other? Tune in and find out!

Posted under books, reading


I read forty three books in 2020, and although this is fewer than the two previous years, I'm giving myself a pass due to an understandable increase in anxiety and lack of focus that most of us experienced due to the events of the year. Still, I was able to log many quality books from many different styles and genres, and I'd like to tell you about some of them. For those unaware, I rate everything I read on Goodreads and I like following people I know, so please connect if you have an active account. https://www.goodreads.com...r/show/74121213-grayghost

Posted under Preserving Games, Chess, Duck Dynasty, not sure those two have ever featured in the same article


As I was staring at the computer pondering ideas for this article, I was contacted by a trucker buddy of mine.  He had stopped after a long day and wanted to hop online and play, only to be greeted with the need for a significant download patch on the game.  Between inconsistent internet availability, slow download speeds, and a limited window in which to play, his gaming was thwarted.  It is sadly a common occurrence for him.
