606th played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 2011 Developer: Valve Corporation Publisher: Valve Corporation I’ve been simultaneously looking forward to the sequel to Portal, and been holding off on it as a possible final puzzle game. In the end, the determining factor was that we got Lego Dimensions (part of the […]

605th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2003 Developer: AlphaDream Publisher: Nintendo I’ve been holding off on covering the Mario & Luigi series for a hwile until we started running out of Mario series games a bit… I really love the Mario RPGs and these are the ones I […]

604th played so far Genre: Strategy/Role-Playing Platform: Neo Geo Pocket Color Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sacnoth Publisher: SNK Faselei! is a game that I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find out more about, but one that’s quite tricky to do so. Released for the rather small Neo Geo Pocket Color, this strategy […]

603rd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Sega The genre of fighting games is pretty broad as used here, and has a tendency to overlap with the action genre. Here it isn’t the one-on-one fighting you might get from, say, Street Fighter, but it’s closer to the […]

#94 Mercenary

602nd played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Novagen I think I underestimated Mercenary slightly. All this time, I thought it was another shoot ’em up, which is frequent in this era, and certainly not the action/adventure we’re getting here. What it is, is a game that has you crash […]

601st played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 2010 Developer: Playdead Publisher: Playdead We begin the next hundred with another known indie game. Limbo is a platformer that gained a good reputation for its implicit storytelling and world it creates in a platformer setting. I never actually had a chacne to play […]

50 Game Round Up: 551-600 (Jeroen)

Posted: 9th May 2017 by Jeroen in Uncategorized

After a rather exciting fifty that featured us making it halfway through the list, these fifty were a lot more basic. At this point, we’re happily coasting along, trying to smooth out any genre outliers (I like having a nice mix) and doing some catching up. There have been some pretty exciting games as well […]

600th played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Rocksteady Studios Publisher: Eidos Interactive Although this was a big milestone game that I normally look forward to, it took me a while to actually get to it – the past few months (as of the time of writing) have […]

599th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Technos Japan Publisher: Taito When I was younger, one of our NES games (that I played over and over) was Double Dragon III, a fun two player beat ’em up that we invested a lot of time in – even if I’m […]
