E3 2019 Retro Round-Up

E3 2019 has come and gone, and although the event is supposed to be all about the latest and greatest in video games, damn if there wasn’t a TON of retro gaming represented this year!

While reporting news is not necessarily the point of this blog, I do have a habit of trying to organize and summarize information, if for no other reason than to make sure I’m not missing anything. So in the interest of doing just that, I’m going to try to create a list of all the announcements and reveals coming out of this year’s E3 that is of particular interest to retro gaming enthusiasts.

What’s Left to Mini?

Here’s a confession: I have loved Godzilla for even longer than I’ve loved video games. It’s true! I actually cannot recall when I first discovered Godzilla — I literally have no memory of a time when I did not watch and love his movies, and some of my earliest memories of watching any TV at all are of Godzilla. It had to have been pre-Kindergarten that I started watching them — maybe my older sister had watched them because she was into horror movies — but I didn’t discover video games until I was five or six, and I know I was watching Godzilla before then.

Anyway, with Godzilla and video games being two of Japan’s most significant pop culture exports, naturally there have been a bunch of Godzilla video games. Unfortunately, as is the case with many licensed properties, many of them are…not that good. And those that are decent are probably most enjoyable only by hardcore kaiju-eiga no otaku.

The problem with Godzilla games is that he SHOULD translate wonderfully into a video game, but he often just… doesn’t.
