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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

857th played so far Genre: Strategy/Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: THQ The first Dawn of War game hit a strategy spot, focusing on smaller squads that are easier to follow and keep track of. The world was as engaging as I’d expect and while base building was a thing, […]
