567th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Various Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Midway Games Publisher: Midway Games What a glorious game for Boxing day, right? Pure coincidence, I can assure you – just how the numbers happened to work out. Mortal Kombat is an early moral outrage game. People fighting each other in games […]

553rd played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: Playstation 2/XBox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Rockstar Toronto Publisher: Rockstar Games The Warriors is a 1979 action movie starring… well, to be honest, I can’t say the names are that familiar to me. It’s a movie about street gangs and one’s attempt at dominance. This one was […]

521st played so far Genre: Action/Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom We’ve covered Devil May Cry before. I remember enjoying it at the time, but having some problems for me when playing. Let’s be honest – I’ll need easy mode here again, I hope I can get it. Our […]

514th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Fighting Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: ACE Team Publisher: ACE Team/Atlus I’m not quite sure where to put Zeno Clash in the list of games for me. The concept looks interesting, but at the same time a first person brawler isn’t normally my thing. The […]

476th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami Yie Ar Kung-Fu is described in the book as the archetypical fighting game. I’m sure it is, but I’ve never heard of it. The images make it look fairly standard, so let’s just go. Our Thoughts Boy, did this […]

454th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco Tekken is, I believe, one of Peter’s favourite fighting game series – he certainly always managed to tell me a lot about it. We played the first game some time ago, that time, too, playing from the Tekken 5 […]

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. Another fighter, apparently one of the Dreamcast’s more notable genres – although it seems to have been a popular genre of the time as well, looking at other consoles from […]

416th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom Some time ago (scary enough, two and a half years ago now) we got a Dreamcast and played a bunch of games from it in what we called Dreamfest. Since it has been a while, we need more Dreamcast […]

406th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Neo Geo Year of Release: 1994 Developer: SNK Publisher: SNK See that up there? Although we played a different port, this is our first Neo Geo game we’re playing. One for the stats, really, but it was about time. Three out of the four of them on the […]

397th played so farGenre: Action/Fighting Platform: Gameboy Advance Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Hitman/Treasure Publisher: Sega I don’t really know manga or anime. I’ve been exposed through some things (mostly through Peter), but it has never been a major focus of mine. Astro Boy seems like it’s a fairly major franchise – 4 seasons and […]
