682nd played so far Genre: Adventure/Puzzle Platform: Iphone Year of Release: 2009 Developer: HandCircus Publisher: ngmoco So here was a bit of a challenge – similar to our ngage worries for Reset Generation, a number of iOS games are no longer available on new devices as they do not have 64 bit builds. A few, […]

681st played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami Here’s another random shooter drawn from the virtual bucket. I genuinely struggle to differentiate these most of the time. This one comes from the stable of Gradius and Salamander, which I struggled to introduce last time. Here […]

680th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Ensemble Studios Publisher: Microsoft Age of Empires was an interesting one, one where I got stopped in what I normally feel is an annoying but necessary part of these games – the tutorial. Age of Mythology went better, but then, that’s newer. […]

679th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: AlphaDream Publisher: Nintendo Out of the various Mario RPGs, it feels like this is the one I played most – it was released early in the DS’s life and it gave me a good early game to play. For that reason, I […]

678th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Ubisoft Publisher: Ubisoft Beyond Good & Evil often gets advertised with the two protagonists of the game – a young woman and a pig man. As in a pig’s head and such. That latter part always looked interesting and made me curious […]

677th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox 360/Playstation 3/PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar games The Grand Theft Auto series feels like it’s been a constant companion. There are ten of them on the list, we’ve been doing them every 100 nearish to the end and when it came up […]

676th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Westwood Studios Publisher: Virgin Interactive Entertainment While I originally focused on playing Command & Conquer, the Red Alert series never held quite as much of an appeal to me. Partially it’s because World War II settings don’t really interest me a lot […]

675th played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Puzzle Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Origin Systems Publisher: Electronic Arts I’m not sure quite where I stand with Bioforge. Graphically, and in vague theme, we have something that resembles an older version of System Shock, but it’s billed as an RPG/Puzzle/Adventure while the manual lists a bunch […]
