679th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: AlphaDream Publisher: Nintendo Out of the various Mario RPGs, it feels like this is the one I played most – it was released early in the DS’s life and it gave me a good early game to play. For that reason, I […]

675th played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Puzzle Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Origin Systems Publisher: Electronic Arts I’m not sure quite where I stand with Bioforge. Graphically, and in vague theme, we have something that resembles an older version of System Shock, but it’s billed as an RPG/Puzzle/Adventure while the manual lists a bunch […]

657th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Square Publisher: Square/Square Electronic Arts So today, we’ve got an action RPG as another random pick. It’s obviously a more time consuming option that comes up. With that said, Vagrant Story isn”t a game I had heard of before this list. […]

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). […]

638th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: PlayStation Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Publisher: Square Square was on a roll in the late 90s. We’ve seen their Final Fantasy output, still some of the golden age of the series, and we’ll discuss the flawed sequel, but better standalone Chrono Cross at some point too. […]

633rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Gas Powered Games Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios I’ve been looking forward to playing Dungeon Siege for a while. I’ve tried the RPG before (having owned it for quite some time) but never got that far in – too many other good things […]

625th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Square Publisher: Square This game was moved up in the queue because Peter wanted to play it for his Before I Kick blog. By the time this publishes, his write up hasn’t gone out yet – he’s a month or two ahead, […]

620th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: FromSoftware Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment/Atlus Software/Namco Bandai The Dark Souls series has its own particular reputation for difficulty and requiring learning by repetition. I’ll be honest, while I think I would enjoy parts of it, it also sounds like something I […]

605th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2003 Developer: AlphaDream Publisher: Nintendo I’ve been holding off on covering the Mario & Luigi series for a hwile until we started running out of Mario series games a bit… I really love the Mario RPGs and these are the ones I […]

604th played so far Genre: Strategy/Role-Playing Platform: Neo Geo Pocket Color Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sacnoth Publisher: SNK Faselei! is a game that I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find out more about, but one that’s quite tricky to do so. Released for the rather small Neo Geo Pocket Color, this strategy […]
