762nd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Gameboy Advance Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo Publisher: Konami I’m moving on with the Castlevania series – two handheld titles left, one of which I’m covering today. The second is the DS Dawn of Sorrow, so I assume there’s a link between the two […]

761st played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Tehkan Publisher: Tecmo It’s amazing how many football games are in the list and in particular how far they are spread throughout the years – other sports may have had their recent game stay on while FIFA 10 was booted off, but […]

760th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo Finishing my Rare Replay games, Blast Corps feels like an odd dead end. It was built to be a building destroying game, and so that’s what we’ll be doing. We apparently have a variety of vehicles to work […]

758th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Strategy Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Lobotomy Software/Snowblind Studios I remember playing a turn based tank shooter called Scorched Earth when I was younger, a game where you move tanks across a plan and shoot them with different weapons – the latter offering some strategy […]

757th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: ZX Spectrum Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Julian Gollop Publisher: Firebird Software I’ve been staring at the Rebelstar series for a while. The list has a sequel in name only, in that it’s a tactical game with the same name, but not necessarily many other links between them. […]

756th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco/Electronic Arts I remember really getting into Katamari Damacy, with dodgy controls, but a decent concept that appealed enough to me. In fact, I keep looking out for news of rereleases for it as that might solve those problems. […]

753rd played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/XBox Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Starbreeze Studios/Tigon Studios Publisher: Vivendi Universal Games Although tie in games are usually seen as bad, we have seen some good ones – Goldeneye is the one that everyone loves, while Star Wars arguably has some games that are better than […]
