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.
