901st played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Camelot Software Planning Publisher: Nintendo Now we’re reaching the end of this project, I’m getting more restricted in the games I pick, and so scheduling and choice means that this time, the post-milestone game isn’t an indie or weird game. Instead, today […]

900th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Brownie Brown/HAL Laboratory Publisher: Nintendo We’ve reached 900! While, yeah, the majority of games that will follow will still be pretty standard, it feels like the landmarks will all be a bit more significant. This isn’t just a 100 game […]

899th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Sega Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Entertainment Software Publishing/Sega I feel like I’ve been running into a lot of Treasure’s games lately. Silhouette Mirage was a recent action platformer, but with Radiant Silvergun we follow the trend of Sin and Punishment and Gradius […]

898th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Sensible Software Publisher: Image Works/Ubisoft/Virgin Interactive As with Powermonger, I remember reading about Mega Lo Mania in a Mega Drive/Genesis guide collection long before I had a chance to play it. It feels similar – a colourful strategy game with a vaguely […]

897th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Game Boy Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Rare Publisher: Titus France I guess I always forget how long the original Game Boy stuck around for. These isometric games in the vein of Knight Lore and Fairlight belong, in my mind, in the eighties, but Monster Max shows the […]

896th played so far Genre: Puzzle/Role Playing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Infinite Interactive Publisher: D3 Publisher Yeah, I’ve kept Puzzle Quest until the end. It’s a puzzle RPG which, to make it easier on myself, I’ll be playing on the DS so I have some TV distraction if I want it. I’ve […]

#338 Intelligent Qube

895th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1997 Developer: G-Artists Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Intelligent Qube feels like it fits in with a number of these puzzle games with simpler graphics, using the system’s 3D capabilities but using the abstraction to not need complicated graphics. Devil Dice comes to mind […]

#413 SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash

894th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Neo Geo Pocket Color Year of Release: 1999 Developer: SNK Publisher: SNK Although Pokemon: The Trading Card Game dates back a good two decades by now, it feels like the genre hasn’t taken off until the release of Hearthstone about six years ago, with plenty of other games […]

#170 Revenge of the Shinobi

893rd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega I’m sure I’ve mentioned wanting to make sure I spread out entries in a series, but I haven’t done a great job with Shinobi. I played the previous one just over two years ago, but here we’ve got […]

892nd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo Publisher: Konami I’ve been careful going through the JRPGs as I always enjoy them for the blog – and because they are pretty long plays, which I need to be careful with so I can keep up […]
