700th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Another landmark! 700 already. I mean, this is 7 years in the making, but we’re getting closer all the time. At this point, there are some game series I really need to start – multiple entries where I […]

699th played so far Genre: Adventure/Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Skip Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo So there are a few action/adventure-like games left that feature you playing as a robot – aside from this, we’ve yet to play Rocket: Robot on Wheels, and I believe Space Station Silicon Valley is another. It means […]

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 […]

653rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door came up the week before I played it, but as I needed more time to it, I wanted to dedicate a day to it – something I did today (as I write this). […]

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 […]

554th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo It really has taken me a while to start on a Fire Emblem game. There aren’t that many on the list, but it’s a major and influential franchise. I played a 3DS iteration before, but that’s at the […]

533rd played so far Genre: Action/First-Person Shooter Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Retro Studios Publisher: Nintendo The Metroid Prime series is Metroid done as a first-person shooter, an interesting variation on the theme that was experimental at the time. So when we started playing Metroid Prime, we did so using the Wii remastered […]

520th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Somehow, Super Mario Sunshine is the mian series Mario game I’ve seen least of so far. I have seen some of the designs and seen the rough plot outline, but I’m not sure I’ve even seen it in […]

309th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: XBox/PS2/Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Free Radical Design Publisher: EA Games It has been a while since we previously covered TimeSplitters 2, a shame considering it’s one of Peter’s favourite FPS series. Before we started playing this there was actually a bit of panic. It took […]

255th played so far Genre: Action/Role Playing Platform: PlayStation 2/Gamecube/XBox Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Snowblind Studios Publisher: Interplay Entertainment Now for something interesting. We all know I love Baldur’s Gate II – so surely I must enjoy the more actionny spin-off? Well, all it shares is the name and vague setting, beyond that there’s […]
