303rd played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Xbox 360/Playstation 3/PC Year of Release: 2010 Developer: Bioware Publisher: Electronic Arts Woo! Time for something else fun. Aside from my documented love of Bioware, we both rushed through the original Mass Effect after our blog write-up. Mass Effect 2, from what we’ve seen, has decided to become […]

302nd played so far Genre: Platform Platform: NES Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo It seems ages since we last played a Mario game, with our limitations on the previous hundred, and our reluctance to do so after having played a lot of them in a short go while borrowing games. It has […]

301st played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Namco Bandai Publisher: Namco Bandai So for our first game of the fifty, we go in for another off-beat game – not as indie this time, but certainly a different sort of thing. We’ve played the game a bit before, but […]

50 Game Round Up: 251-300 (Peter)

Posted: 16th January 2014 by Mulholland in Round-Up

Never EVER again. You hear me? So many games were off-limits in this 100 that this blog became a huge chore at times. Whole series such as Mario andย  Zelda became off-limits for a year whilst other games that we wanted to play or revisit have been neglected. In many ways it allowed us to […]

50 Game Round Up: 251-300 (Jeroen)

Posted: 15th January 2014 by Mulholland in Round-Up

So here we are, another fifty done. Fifty games I had not played before, which was an interesting introduction. It’s also made us decide not to go for these themes again, not for this long – it took too long to get through and blocked too many other games. Still, we made it, and the […]

300th played so far Genre: Action Platform: PC/Playstation 2/Xbox Year of Release: 2001 Developer: DMA Design Publisher: Rockstar Games I’ll be honest – the lead-up to playing this game was a bit more difficult than normal. All excited about playing game 300, we inserted it into our Playstation 2 and started playing it. Within seconds […]

299th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Cing Publisher: Nintendo As common as adventures are – their lack of action usually making it more playable for handheld gaming in particular – most of the bigger example tend to be a bit tongue in cheek, funny, and while they build […]

298th played so far Genre: Puzzle/Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Carbonated Games/Gameloft Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios/Gameloft For a long time, Uno was (possibly still is) the highest selling Xbox Live Arcade game. Yeah, that’s right, with all the options videogames afford us, it’s a virtual version of a board game that people […]

297th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Internet/DS Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Success Publisher: Ignition Entertainment Some games, when you look at the initial graphics (loading up the game as we did in this case) just don’t give many clues on what theyre’ about. Zoo Keeper may sound somewhat straightforward at the start, but […]
