667th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Massive Entertainment Publisher: Sierra Entertainment/Ubisoft See that number up there? Two thirds of the way through. Making progress y’all! It feels like a while since we last covered an RTS. We’ve had some games, like the amazing Star Control 3, that mixed […]

666th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Neversoft Publisher: Activision We’ve played a Tony Hawk game before, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2. That was fine, a skating game in preset arenas that felt mismatched – not that natural and, even though you’d always want to create a setting with […]

665th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Infinity Ward Publisher: Activision How have I not played Call of Duty yet? The series is now one of the biggest out there (although, with the likes of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, we couldn’t quite say that felt right) […]

664th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Incognito Entertainment/SCE Santa Monica Studio Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I’ve simultaneously wanted to play this game and was dreading to do so. Warhawk is a multiplayer shooter, with no singleplayer mode or content. That makes it harder to review, […]

663rd played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Sure, we have plenty of racing games – early on it was an easy genre for multiplayer, and it’s something people still love – but few take place on the water and I swear even less use […]

662nd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Various Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Electric Dreams Software Publisher: Electric Dreams Software/Activision Spindizzy looks interesting. It uses the isometric perspective that’s quite popular in these days, but doesn’t use the human characters moving around and mostly looks like a version of Marble Madness. It’s not exactly that […]

661st played so far Genre: Shoot-Em Up Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Irem Publisher: Irem/Agetec/Sony Today we go back to the world of R-Type, a side-scrolling shooter that is more or less just that. It was decent, incredibly difficult but with really good bosses… assuming you reached them. We’ve now reached the […]

660th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/SNES Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Rare Publisher: Midway/Rare/Nintendo While I had the Rare Replay disc out, this came up, so it felt like a good game to pick up next. I’ve had a couple of Killer something fighting and shooting games on the list. Of course a […]
