880th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Gameboy Advance Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Sega/THQ So we played Gunstar Heroes as game… oh, 140 on the blog, some 740 games and at least seven and a half years ago. It actually still have some purple text in its write up! Now […]

852nd played so far Genre: Simulation Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Egosoft Publisher: Deep Silver/Enlight While the Elite games define a genre, others take after them too. X3: Reunion is one of them. The third part of the story – the fourth being released less than two years ago – it seems to […]

846th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Codo Technologies Publisher: Namco It seems like Rebelstar: Tactical Command is a clear example of a sequel in name only. While both the original Rebelstar and this game are tactical games, there isn’t a clear link in storyline or special […]

770th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox/PC/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Double Fine Productions Publisher: Majesco Entertainment I’ve been creating a bit of my buffer for these write ups, which has the handy side effects that I can use Christmas to play some longer games, rather than using it to catch up […]

769th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Spike Publisher: Spike/Agetec/505 Games I don’t get wrestling. I’m not even talking about fakeness or performances, I don’t really get the appeal of watching people fight. I think I struggled with that in the previous WWE game we discussed. Fire Pro […]

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. […]

754th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Team Ninja Publisher: Tecmo The video games list has a sad group of repeat entries, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes being the most quoted remake on the list. Ninja Gaiden Black is another – a remake of the original Ninja Gaiden […]

745th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Monolith Productions Publisher: Sierra Entertainment/Vivendi Universal Games/Warner Bros. Games Supernatural elements to the extent that F.E.A.R. seems to have, based on the reading I have done so far, are normally the domain of the survival horror. Resident Evil has some of […]

#648 Garry’s Mod

Tags: , , , ,

742nd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Facepunch Studios Publisher: Valve Corporation Garry’s Mod, taken on its own, isn’t strictly a game. It’s a physics sandbox to either mess around in (which you could call a game, but without goals) or to play the maps, game modes and props […]

731st played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2005 Developer: EA Canada Publisher: Electronic Arts I’ve always distantly admired the Need for Speed series. I remember the original being released and playing it with friends and enjoying the naughty feeling of being chased by the police and the thrill to speed along […]
