Tags: , , , ,

580th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rare Publisher: Microsoft Moving around the canon of Banjo-Kazooie a bit, for various reasons, Nuts and Bolts feels like a late entry for a 3D platforming hero – the genre seemed to be forgotten about around this point. This game draws […]

568th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: iPhone Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Phil Hassey Galcon looks like a shooter. At least, that’s what I thought when I saw the screenshots (and every time I googled it to see what was happening). Loads of colourful shapes, mostly abstract – the semi-retro look of, say, Geometry […]

So I know on some level that we’ve played Bangai-O before, but it took me some time to recall what it was like (the weird storyline style is probably most of what I […]

539th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 3/Playstation Portable/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rockstar San Diego/Rockstar London Publisher: Rockstar Games Rockstar made a racing game!

501st played so far Genre: Puzzle/Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: RedLynx Publisher: Nokia Now here’s a catch. I’ve mentioned before that Reset Generation is the impossible game for any sane person. Available as online and N-Gage game only, the online version was pulled within a year of us starting the blog, while […]

459th played so far Genre: Adventure/Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Frontier Developments Publisher: Frontier Developments Just the look of this game draws me in.

437th played so far Genre: Racing/Puzzle Platform: PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Nadeo Publisher: Deep Silver/Enlight So today we’ve got a game that has one of the stranger genre combinations so far – racing/puzzle doesn’t feel like a natural combination.
