Retro Dose #23 - Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive

In today's Retro Dose, we take the law into our own hands so that Desperados reminds us of who in the Wild West was the chief sheriff in the city.We all  once played cowboys and indians when we were kids, but I already see somebody down in the comments immediately jump to tell me how he was not. Anyway, because that is not really what I want to remember today, but a strategic game of the classic spaghetti western that we played in 2001 on the PC. Much like the legendary Commandos, some may even say a shameless copy - Desperados:

Retro Dose #22 - Aladdin

This time in Retro Dose we will not try to avoid the hellish heat but we will meet it with a great retro title - Aladdin for the Sega Genesis.For some time, players have known that titles based on current movies should be avoided, but that has not always been the case.

Retro Dose #20 - Parasite Eve

In this Retro Dose we remember one Christmas Eve and parasites whom we met in the PSX classic Parasite Eve.Parasite Eve was released in 1998., developed by Squaresoft for PSX, headed by none other than Uncle Hironobu Sakaguchi known for Final Fantasy . This leads to the conclusion that this is a RPG in some sort but in the survival horror flair. It does not sound to you like a warm, festive story? It might not be one of those traditional ones, but Parasite Eve took place at Christmas in the snowy streets of New York.The whole thing started when a young cop
