996th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Volition Publisher: Interplay Entertainment I covered Descent a little while ago as an odd blast from the past. That game got a couple of sequels until we got Descent: Freespace, which started to take place in an open space rather […]

959th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Product Development Division 3 Publisher: Square Chrono Trigger was one of the biggest RPGs of the 16-bit era and probably rivals only Final Fantasy VI in its focus on JRPG character building and story telling, even outshining it as it […]

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 […]

877th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Product Development Division 6 Publisher: Square I’ve been looking forward to playing Front Mission 3 – at its core a tactics game like Final Fantasy Tactics, but with mechs and all that. It also seems appropriately story dense and in […]

862nd played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sucker Punch Productions Publisher: Ubi Soft My first encounter with Rocket: Robot on Wheels was actually through the video of a tool-assisted speedrun, which showed an action platformer that clearly drew on the Super Mario 64 set up of worlds with […]

848th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: SCE Japan Studio Publisher: Sony Computer More monkeys? Super Monkey Ball wasn’t enough, so I’m going to go for Ape Escape, which feature more cute looking primates. We’re chasing them rather than freeing them, but the theme continues. Our Thoughts Ape […]

845th played so far Genre: Life Simulation Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Vivarium/Jellyvision Publisher: Sega It’s quite difficult to play Seaman these days. It was only released for the Dreamcast and needed a specific microphone that could plug into your controller and play. These are difficult to find, so you need to use […]

839th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco As the last of this batch of Dreamcast games (for now – the real last one of the batch needs some more time to play), Mr. Driller has always reminded me of early list game Drill Dozer – drilling […]
