#362 Shining Force III

Tags: , , , ,

979th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Camelot Software Planning Publisher: Sega It feels like I’ve been needing to get through a number of Saturn-only titles that never gained a port, so require quite a bit more effort on my part. I played Burning Rangers last week and I’m […]

#257 Breath of Fire II

971st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom In the list of RPGs, the Breath of Fire series feels like an also-ran – a decently successful series that never quite got the traction Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest did. It had six entries – one of which […]

959th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Product Development Division 3 Publisher: Square Chrono Trigger was one of the biggest RPGs of the 16-bit era and probably rivals only Final Fantasy VI in its focus on JRPG character building and story telling, even outshining it as it […]

#256 Shadowrun

948th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Beam Software Publisher: Data East I’ve always been curious about the Shadowrun universe. Not enough to play a paper and pencil RPG with it, but there’s something about the cyberpunk universe that’s interesting, with a dystopia that seemed prescient. Yeah, I backed […]

940th played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Strategy Platform: DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Square Enix Publisher: Square Enix It’s time to start mopping up some franchises that had several entries still left – and with the immense series that’s Final Fantasy I need to tackle entry eleven out of twelve (and yes, I’m leaving a […]

917th played so far Genre: Life Simulation/Role-Playing Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Marvelous Interactive Publisher: Marvelous Interactive/Natsume I’ll be honest, the main reason Harvest Moon appears to be known now is that it’s the game Stardew Valley is based on – a decent enough recommendation, but not necessarily noteworthy enough to […]

903rd played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Square Publisher: Square Thanks to a lovely Christmas present, I got the Switch port of the Mana trilogy (Collection of Mana), including the most liked Secret of Mana that ended up on the list. It took me about five months more to […]

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 […]

#779 Puzzle Quest

896th played so far Genre: Puzzle/Role Playing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Infinite Interactive Publisher: D3 Publisher Yeah, I’ve kept Puzzle Quest until the end. It’s a puzzle RPG which, to make it easier on myself, I’ll be playing on the DS so I have some TV distraction if I want it. I’ve […]

892nd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo Publisher: Konami I’ve been careful going through the JRPGs as I always enjoy them for the blog – and because they are pretty long plays, which I need to be careful with so I can keep up […]
