911th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Light Weight Publisher: Square/Sony Computer Entertainment I’ve not heard of Bushido Blade before the blog, and I don’t think I will after – there was a sequel, but it does look like it didn’t go anywhere. It feels like it fits […]

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 […]

889th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Entertainment Software Publishing/Working Designs I feel like we’ve been covering a bunch of games by Treasure recently, with action shooters being one of their clear fortes that we’ve covered with Alien Soldier and the Gunstar Heroes series. Silhouette Mirage draws […]

872nd played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Cavedog Entertainment Publisher: GT Interactive Software I vaguely remember playing Total Annihilation with friends, in an era where Warcraft dominated the RTS conversation at school. Aside from the futuristic setting – Command & Conquer had that – there was something about the […]

809th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts I’ve always loved The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island II and it was a treat to revisit them for the blog. I’m not as familiar with the third game, having played through it only once, but I’ve […]

807th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Shiny Entertainment Publisher: Shiny Entertainment/Playmates Interactive I’ve sort of played MDK before – it wasn’t loads, and mostly dropping into other people’s games rather than playing a full campaign on my own. The sequel stands out as being an early […]

804th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Bungie Publisher: Bungie/Eidos Interactive Next on the list of games I’ve played before, the 3D elements of Myth: The Fallen Lords made it memorable to me. While I knew the likes of Command & Conquer and Warcraft, having a rotating camera felt […]

760th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo Finishing my Rare Replay games, Blast Corps feels like an odd dead end. It was built to be a building destroying game, and so that’s what we’ll be doing. We apparently have a variety of vehicles to work […]

750th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Squaresoft Publisher: Square/Sony Computer Entertainment Happy new year! And happy 750th game landmark! It’s pure coincidence the two coincided, but I quite like that both happen at the same time. My search for a big game to play coincided with my quest […]

640th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Square Publisher: Square/Sony Computer Entertainment Going on to knock out some of these Playstation games (I was really behind. Still am, really), today I need to cover a shoot ’em up. Einhander has been in my mind for a while, […]
