#960 Rhythm Heaven

Tags: , , , , ,

970th played so far Genre: Music Platform: DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo SPD/TNX Music Recordings Publisher: Nintendo It feels like I’ve always mentally divided music games between instrument-based rhythm games and other rhythm games – possibly with a handful that don’t go either way, like how Singstar technically isn’t. That last instrument based […]

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 […]

965th played so far Genre: Puzzle/Platform Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Nintendo Software Technology Publisher: Nintendo I couldn’t stay away from platform games forever. I’m running down various lists and this takes care of another double-genre game, while also getting me near the end of the Mario franchise. It’s slight throwback […]

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 […]

#876 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

956th played so far Genre: Action/Fighting Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Sora Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo I believe Super Smash Bros Ultimate, the currently latest in the series, hadn’t been released the last time I played a Super Smash Bros. game. I sunk a fair amount of time into that – not as much […]

943rd played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Q-Games Publisher: Nintendo Looking at the list of other Q-games titles we’ve played and that they published, such as the Pixeljunk series, Starship Patrol and Reflect Missile, it’s clear that they were one of the known indie developers for Sony and […]

912th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Thanks to the Book of Mudora podcast, I’ve been steeped in Legend of Zelda lore recently¬† – something that seems way deeper than the games justify, but it’s fun anyway. I’ve been waiting some of these out […]

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 […]

#684 Mother 3

900th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Brownie Brown/HAL Laboratory Publisher: Nintendo We’ve reached 900! While, yeah, the majority of games that will follow will still be pretty standard, it feels like the landmarks will all be a bit more significant. This isn’t just a 100 game […]

874th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Tecmo Publisher: Nintendo It’s always a bit weird when both parts of a known horror franchise are on the list when I hadn’t heard of it before the list’s existence. We covered the Fatal Frame series, a survival horror game that […]
