815th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega Following the disappearance of City of Heroes (even if it was found to have fan servers online this year), we set off to play as many of the online games as possible, especially MMORPGs that rely on it […]

782nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 1/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I’ve played a bunch of Street Fighter games before and, well, I think they’ve been looking better over time.

724th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega The Dreamcast era really was one for weird peripherals.

650th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Dreamcast/Xbox Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Sega AM2 Publisher: Sega/Microsoft Game Studios 650 in!

490th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Dreamcast/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom So I played this and found this game incredibly difficult to handle.

440th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast/PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: AM1/Sims Publisher: Sega Up until now, my knowledge of fishing has been theoretical. Conversations with friends who went fishing, some attempted bonding some fifteen years ago, bits and pieces I picked up here and there. Sega Bass Fishing, then, isn’t my game, […]

417th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Neo Geo/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1999 Developer: SNK Publisher: SNK Time for a bit more of Dreamfest 2.
