581st played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: SCE Santa Monica Studio Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment The last time we visited Kratos, in God of War 2, Peter probably played more of it than I did.

558th played so far Genre: Action Platform: PlayStation 2 Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Atari Melbourne House Publisher: Atari I don’t think I ever owned a Transformers toy, but the idea was so cool when I watched them on TV. Giant robots that transformed into cars an other machines? Awesome. Even if the one that […]

549th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Xbox/Playstation 2/PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Midway Games Publisher: Midway Games Psi-Ops: Mindgate Conspiracy isn’t the first game that combines an FPS with psychic powers – a few years ago we played Second Sight, which played with the same basic idea. It’s probably not a coincidence they […]

541st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Atlus Publisher: Atlus Persona 3 is an interesting game. Part dungeon descending role playing game, part life sim role playing game. That’s not really a revelation – it’s sort of what the Shin Megami Tensei series is based on. The fourth […]

540th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: SCE San Diego Studio Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I’ve been enjoying a number of action/adventures for the blog – the likes of Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted often being amusing (assuming combat is handled well). The Mark of Kri hews a […]

534th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega Going into this, I have seen Yakuza 2 listed as an open world action game – an eastern Grand Theft Auto, like Sleeping Dogs. Perhaps with less of an open world, but a similar mission structure and world […]

532nd played so far Genre: Role Playing/Strategy Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Nippon Ichi Software Publisher: Atlus/Koei I’m struggling to remember whether we’ve played a tactical RPG yet. I’ve played some before – Pokemon Conquest was an addiction in the house for a while – but aside from games in the region […]

529th played so far Genre: Role Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Level-5 Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Somehow it feels like I haven’t played a JRPG in a while. In fact, when it comes to the blog, RPGs have been sparse lately. I make up for it in my personal gaming, and […]
