888th played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Ninja Theory Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Time to be reductive: Heavenly Sword looks like a hack and slasher not unlike God of War or Ninja Gaiden, fighting your way through enemies with maybe some exploration. It’s no wonder that this studio […]

883rd played so far Genre: Action/Fighting Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360/PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom So we’ve played the first and third Devil May Cry games before – the latter’s start in a store or (according to my four year old memory) pizza place standing out as an odd place to start. […]

879th played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: Playstation Portable Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Ready at Dawn Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment There’s still something amazing in my mind about some of the God of War fights – big and impressive at its best, although possibly not always as good in tying them together, from what […]

849th played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Fighting Platform: Playstation Portable Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Square Enix Publisher: Square Enix We still have a couple of Final Fantasy games to play – although there’s only one more numbered installment on the list, there are several spin offs to play. Dissidia Final Fantasy mixes a fighting game […]

837th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I haven’t played many Dreamcast games recently, in part because I have to go out and retrieve it from semi storage (the bedroom TV) and connect it to a TV that is too new to handle aerial connections gracefully. […]

824th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Clover Studios Publisher: Capcom God Hand‘s lineage becomes clear when you look at the other games. Clover Studios made both Viewtiful Joe and Okami and a part of its creative team went on to make Bayonetta. All of that defines what […]

792nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: EA Chicago Publisher: EA Sports Oh man. I’ve never really gotten into fighting sports either, and while they’re okay games, the franchise based stuff doesn’t work as well for me – like sports, they can try to be too accurate, rely […]

782nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 1/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I’ve played a bunch of Street Fighter games before and, well, I think they’ve been looking better over time. Now while this might seem like another variation of the third game, based on the title, it’s actually part […]

769th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Spike Publisher: Spike/Agetec/505 Games I don’t get wrestling. I’m not even talking about fakeness or performances, I don’t really get the appeal of watching people fight. I think I struggled with that in the previous WWE game we discussed. Fire Pro […]

727th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Technos Japan Publisher: Data East So I don’t really look forward to these early fighting games – the genre isn’t the best in general and it’s not until the likes of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter that we see some of the […]
