151st played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Tale of Tales Publisher: Tale of Tales Now for something completely different. In what we’ve decided will be tradition, after completing another batch of 50 we turn to something slightly different – indie and different from what we expect. We did it […]

50 Game Round Up: 101-150 (Jeroen)

Posted: 27th May 2012 by Jeroen in Round-Up

After Peter’s picks yesterday, it’s now my turn to go through the games and pick my favourites. It seems like we’ve said this previously, but it’s felt we’ve hit our stride now. This past fifty games feel like the best set yet and we’ve enjoyed playing them. We’ve been having so much fun, it’s actually […]

50 Game Round Up: 101-150 (Peter)

Posted: 26th May 2012 by Mulholland in Round-Up

So here we are again. 50 games in six months and it is time for our round-up so we have a chance to look back to reflect on what we have played. This time we are introducing a new category: Best Blast From The Past. Since we are both gamers there is a proportion of […]

150th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Bullfrog Publisher: Electronic Arts As we’ve mentioned before, for these landmark numbers for games we like to find a game that’s somewhat meaningful for us – we care about or such. For the 50’s Jeroen gets a ‘joy game’ whilst I take […]

149th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Various Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Arc System Works Publisher: Arc System Works (JP), Aksys Games (US), pQube (EU) I love fighting games.

148th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2002 Developer: The Creative Assembly Publisher: Activision Right, here’s another game that came up randomly, but happened to be a game in a series one of us already loved (this time, perhaps surprisingly, not me). The Total War series is a historical strategy series, […]

147th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: PC Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Oddworld Inhabitants Publisher: GT Interactive Abe is adorable. He is one of the ugliest game heroes ever to grace a home console but he is adorable. The Oddworld series has had a bit of resurgence in the last year thanks to Steam […]

146th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Rebellion Developments Publisher: Ubisoft Parkour, for the few who haven’t seen or read about this, is a fairly new sport that’s mostly about running around roofs, ledges and other backstreets of cities, trying to not break your neck as you run […]

So yeah, as you can see we’re doing three games in one post – three arcade shoot ’em ups, in fact. Please allow me to explain. Today (as I’m writing this, that is), we were out in London for a private celebration and, having some time to spare, Peter suggested we’d visit the London Trocadero. […]

#713 Jeanne d’Arc

Tags: , , , ,

142nd played so far Genre: Strategy/Role-Playing Game Platform: Playstation Portable Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Level-5 Publisher: Sony Right, this is a bit unfair isn’t it. Not only does this game cross the generation line compared to Advance Wars but it also incorporated RPG elements into its turn-based strategy framework. Still Jeanne d’Arc is one […]
