967th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo While I enjoyed playing Pikmin, it was a flawed classic: The controls weren’t great and the time limit was one that made me quite nervous. I was hoping that a sequel would improve on that and although I […]

963rd played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Kuju Entertainment Publisher: Nintendo For some reason I thought Battalion Wars was a prequel to Advance Wars: the big game version of it before it was adapted for the handheld. I was wrong – not only did this come later, it changed […]

958th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast/Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Treasure I think I’m going to end up getting this wrong and come across it, but if I’m right this is the last Treasure game on the list. From their early start with Gunstar Heroes to their last […]

955th played so far Genre: Action/First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/Xbox/Gamecube Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Raven Software Publisher: LucasArts So I still had two Star Wars games left to play, and it felt like it has been a while since I played with force powers, rather than flying ships around.¬†We’ve played Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark […]

953th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Gamecube/Playstation 2/PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Awesome Developments Publisher: Ignition Entertainment I don’t really know much about pool. I’ve seen some snooker years ago in late night watches and possibly a sports program of sorts at the gym and it looked interesting, but I never really got […]

951th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Gamecube/Playstation 2/Xbox Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Swingin’ Ape Studio Publisher: Vivendi Universal Games I don’t quite know where this game will go. In my head, I’m expecting another action platformer, something Jak and Daxter in gameplay, with more of an aesthetic of Rocket: Robot on […]

902nd played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom It’s undeniable that the Resident Evil series looms large in the horror genre and the most recent remakes prove that’s still there. At the same time, I believe those remakes show that the originals needed an update and […]

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 […]

795th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Factor 5/LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts We’ve got a pretty rapid follow up to Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. It was a bit of a struggle that I didn’t really agree with as much. I preferred the older shooters – for various reasons […]

791st played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Nintendo EAD Tokyo Publisher: Nintendo Donkey Konga gave the world a Donkey Kong-themed music game using a custom bongo controller. Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat took those same controllers, but turned it into a platformer. An actual platformer, not a rhythm game skinned […]
