Retro Look Back : Pokemon Red and Blue


Pokemon Red Blue

Gotta Catch Them All!

Pokemon is, without a doubt, one of the most beloved franchises in video game history. With the original release of the Pokemon Red and Blue games in North America in 1998, the series became a staple of the Gameboy catalogue, and secured itself in the hearts of millions of kids, and some adults, including myself. In this look back, I don’t really want to review Pokemon Red and Blue as much as I want to try and figure out why these games were so great in a way that goes beyond the fact that I was nine, life was good, and I was having fun with the latest craze.

Everyone has that game, movie, and/or book that they can’t help but wish they could experience for the first time again. For me, that’s the original Pokemon games. Of course nostalgia probably plays a huge part as to why I think so fondly about my first time through Pokemon Red, but I think there is an appeal within the game’s mechanics that helped hook so many people the first time they played it, and it stems from two central aspects, the simplicity and the mystery of Pokemon and their evolutions.

Retro Review: Digimon World


Digimon World Review

By: David Habinski

Developer : Bandai
Publisher : Bandai
Platforms :Playstation
Genre : Adventure, Virtual-Pet
Mode : Single Player

I wanted this game to be good. I really did. I wanted it to be good 12 years ago and I wanted it to be yesterday.

Digimon World is the first game based off of the once popular Japanese franchise….Kind of. What the game seems to be mostly based off of is the virtual pet toys that were similar to Tamagotchis. These toys were actually the starting point of Digimon and, from what I can tell, the game was developed and released before the anime in Japan, making the toys the closest thing to source material that the developers would have had to work with. So essentially, Digimon World is a game based off a different type of game, and it’s not all that good. Read the rest of this entry
