834th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Namco USA Publisher: Namco Kill Switch really is one of those generic titles that does tell you what it’s about, but feels interchangeable with about twenty other games at the same time. Everything about it screams generic-ness – it’s […]

831st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Level-5 Publisher: Square Enix This week I had some extra time and it only seemed right to invest that in a long, deep game. Dragon Quest VIII seemed like a good pick: Dragon Quest V was a game I enjoyed a […]

830th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: NanaOn-Sha, Ltd. Publisher: SCEI I feel like Vib-Ribbon was one of the weirder rhythm game. There’s still the track you come down, but the presentation was unique and made it both more interesting and more difficult. Its sequel, Mojb Ribbon, seems […]

824th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Clover Studios Publisher: Capcom God Hand‘s lineage becomes clear when you look at the other games. Clover Studios made both Viewtiful Joe and Okami and a part of its creative team went on to make Bayonetta. All of that defines what […]

790th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Japan Publisher: Konami While we msotly know Hideo Kojima for the Metal Gear Solid series, while reading up when preparing for this entry I saw that he was also involved in the creation of the Zone of the […]

784th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Playstation 2/Gamecube/Xbox Year of Release: 2003 Developer: EA Canada Publisher: EA Sports BIG I’ve not only played the main NBA series before, but NBA Jam introduced me to something closer to the street basketball we are going to get into here and I swear it’s come up as […]

777th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: PC/Xbox/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo Publisher: Konami I was incredibly impressed by the first Silent Hill game. It had its control issues and its age showed, but the setting was good and tense and the puzzles worked quite well. We’ve also […]

770th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox/PC/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Double Fine Productions Publisher: Majesco Entertainment I’ve been creating a bit of my buffer for these write ups, which has the handy side effects that I can use Christmas to play some longer games, rather than using it to catch up […]

769th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Spike Publisher: Spike/Agetec/505 Games I don’t get wrestling. I’m not even talking about fakeness or performances, I don’t really get the appeal of watching people fight. I think I struggled with that in the previous WWE game we discussed. Fire Pro […]

756th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco/Electronic Arts I remember really getting into Katamari Damacy, with dodgy controls, but a decent concept that appealed enough to me. In fact, I keep looking out for news of rereleases for it as that might solve those problems. […]
