868th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Vanillaware Publisher: Atlus It feels like the Playstation 2 era is one of experimentation, a time where a lot of different variants of the game are created, made possible by better hardware while not being big enough to constrain by the […]

865th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Harmonix Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I’m playing Amplitude a bit out of order – I should probably be playing Frequency first, but it’s one of those thigns where it didn’t work out that way today. I guess it makes sense to […]

856th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Dreamcast/Playstation 2/PC Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Game Arts Publisher: Game Arts/Enix/Ubisoft Every once in a while, I end up with a chance to sink a decent amount of time in a bigger game, and I’d been saving Grandia II for one of those games. It came from […]

841st played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Sucker Punch Productions Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment The Sly series is another one where we have a big gap between the two games of the series.

840th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Vanillaware/Nippon Ichi Publisher: Nippon Ichi/NIS America/Koei With GrimGrimoire, I continue my exploration of strategy games on the console. While a game like Halo Wars draws on the RTS genre, it looks like GrimGrimoire draws more on the likes of Dungeon Keeper, […]

834th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Namco USA Publisher: Namco Kill Switch really is one of those generic titles that does tell you what it’s about, but feels interchangeable with about twenty other games at the same time. Everything about it screams generic-ness – it’s […]

831st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Level-5 Publisher: Square Enix This week I had some extra time and it only seemed right to invest that in a long, deep game. Dragon Quest VIII seemed like a good pick: Dragon Quest V was a game I enjoyed a […]

830th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: NanaOn-Sha, Ltd. Publisher: SCEI I feel like Vib-Ribbon was one of the weirder rhythm game. There’s still the track you come down, but the presentation was unique and made it both more interesting and more difficult. Its sequel, Mojb Ribbon, seems […]

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 […]
