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 […]

659th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Rare Publisher: Rare I’m not sure I’ve mentioned our Rare Replay purchase before, which is perfect for this blog as well as easier access to a bunch of classics. I dug it out today for a random game, although we’ll have […]

657th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Square Publisher: Square/Square Electronic Arts So today, we’ve got an action RPG as another random pick.

650th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Dreamcast/Xbox Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Sega AM2 Publisher: Sega/Microsoft Game Studios 650 in! It’s a pretty minor milestone, with the two thirds check that’s coming up being more significant, but I’m always excited with a new 50 and the way I get to update my stats and […]

647th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Oddworld Inhabitants Publisher: Electronic Arts We played Oddworld games before, as a story based platformer that was about these characters gaining freedom. Here, a few games later in the series, we get a 3D action adventure instead, quite a different challenge. I’m […]

638th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: PlayStation Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Publisher: Square Square was on a roll in the late 90s. We’ve seen their Final Fantasy output, still some of the golden age of the series, and we’ll discuss the flawed sequel, but better standalone Chrono Cross at some point too. […]

636th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Game Boy Color Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Capcom/Flagship Publisher: Nintendo These games have a bit of a special place in my heart. I got these games when I got my Gameboy Advance – the first Gameboy I owned – and it was special. Like the Pokemon games […]

629th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Amiga/Atari ST Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Paul Holmes Publisher: Activision There’s a lot of randomness in game selection. In the case of Hunter, it’s because it always makes me think it’s some early 3Dish shooter, while in reality it seems to be something quite different – similar […]

626th played so far Genre: Action/First-Person Shooter Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Retro Studios/Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo After finding out that the first Metroid Prime game was best played on the Gamecube rather than Wii, we also tracked down a Gamecube copy of the second in the game (the third only being available on […]

Cannon Fodder is one of the games that I feel are often discussed […]
