952nd played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC/Amiga Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Revolution Software Publisher: Virgin Interactive Entertainment I know Revolution Software’s games mostly from the Broken Sword series, of which I’ve played the first four and backed the fifth – I still need to play it at some point, when we’ve got more […]

951th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Gamecube/Playstation 2/Xbox Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Swingin’ Ape Studio Publisher: Vivendi Universal Games I don’t quite know where this game will go. In my head, I’m expecting another action platformer, something Jak and Daxter in gameplay, with more of an aesthetic of Rocket: Robot on […]

50 Game Round Up: 901-950 (Jeroen)

Posted: 24th April 2021 by Jeroen in Round-Up

Here we are again – my nineteenth round up of the bunch. I’m at a weird place with the list now – this is the last one that’ll be covering fifty games. I’ve got some ideas for the end, but no matter what it won’t be a set of fifty again. I’ll discuss my plans […]

950th played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Xbox 360/Playstation 3/PC Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom As I’m preparing to play thisย  – probably the last ‘normal’ landmark game before they’re all significant milestones – it’s the last game on the list of the influential Resident Evil survival horror franchise. […]

949th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Black Box Publisher: Electronic Arts In my understanding, the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series and its spin offs dominate the skating genre, although it makes sense that EA would try to get into it considering the number of sports […]

948th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Beam Software Publisher: Data East I’ve always been curious about the Shadowrun universe. Not enough to play a paper and pencil RPG with it, but there’s something about the cyberpunk universe that’s interesting, with a dystopia that seemed prescient. Yeah, I backed […]

947th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: PC Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Papyrus Design Group Publisher: Sierra Sports The focus on Grand Prix Legends feels different just reading the description. While other racing games tend to have you drive modern cars with focusing on that polished experience –ย Forza Motorsport feels like one of the […]

#160 Narc

946th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1988 Developer: Williams Electronics Publisher: WMS Industries It appears that Narc was another controversial game back when it was released because of the amount of violence in the game. That, I suspect, will be a quaint complaint knowing where we are now, […]

945th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Oliver Twins Publisher: Codemasters Both because of my interest in older games and to prep playing older games, I regularly read the Retro Gamer magazine for a while. I haven’t taken the time to do so in a while, but one of […]

944th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 3/Playstation Portable Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Game Yarouze/SCE Japan Studio Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment After Art Style: Intersect a few days ago, we’re now covering another minimalist, black and white puzzle game. This time, if the timings were reversed, I’d say it looks like a knock […]
