#570 Manhunt

Tags: , , , , , ,

698th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation 2/Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games With Manhunt, we play one of the more controversial games out there – at least at its time of release. It’s a protagonist playing in a big game of murder and death, something you do in […]

697th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: First Star Software Publisher: Beyond Software/Tynesoft/Wicked Software/Kemco I remember playing Spy vs Spy with friends about… 20 years ago maybe? Probably a few more than that, but probably about a decade after its first release. I only remember bits of it, but […]

694th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Nintendo Wario is a bit of an odd one, isn’t he? Starting off as a villain, he took over platforming duties on the handhelds in his Wario Land series (until that went back to Mario again) when he moved to […]

#148 Shinobi

691st played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega I really should have played Shinobi earlier for the most mundane reason: There are two games on the list with the exact same name, just separated by a decade or so. This isn’t uncommon in franchises, as the recent […]

690th played so far Genre: Action Platform:Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Irem Publisher: Irem/Agetec As I’m writing this, it’s actually the first weekend of the new year and we watched the Disaster Artist yesterday – making for two names I keep mixing up – and put the Christmas decorations away. This may seem […]

#515 Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell

686th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Various Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Ubi Soft Publisher: Ubi Soft Tom Clancy games have, in the past, left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter showed earlier that its politics feel quite objectionable. That’s probably because the past few years have left […]

#533 Beyond Good & Evil

Tags: , , , ,

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 […]

#113 Spindizzy

Tags: , , , ,

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 […]
