898th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Sensible Software Publisher: Image Works/Ubisoft/Virgin Interactive As with Powermonger, I remember reading about Mega Lo Mania in a Mega Drive/Genesis guide collection long before I had a chance to play it. It feels similar – a colourful strategy game with a vaguely […]

881st played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Crytek Publisher: Ubisoft I’ve really played this series out of order. Sure, we played the second and third game in that order, but both have their own quirks developed after this game. Far Cry 2 is described by many as an […]

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 […]

785th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Various Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft The original Prince of Persia was a stand out platformer, its animation standing out but the full game having a story and set up that was quite appealing. It’s a game where straight up sequels could never quite […]

689th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360/PC Year of Release: 2012 Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft It’s been a few years since we played Far Cry 2, the Ubisoft open world game set in the jungle (as opposed to historical cities or Watch Dogs‘ futuristic city). This third game in the […]

678th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Ubisoft Publisher: Ubisoft Beyond Good & Evil often gets advertised with the two protagonists of the game – a young woman and a pig man. As in a pig’s head and such. That latter part always looked interesting and made me curious […]

667th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Massive Entertainment Publisher: Sierra Entertainment/Ubisoft See that number up there? Two thirds of the way through. Making progress y’all! It feels like a while since we last covered an RTS. We’ve had some games, like the amazing Star Control 3, that mixed […]

644th played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Various Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Ubisoft Paris/Red Storm Entertainment Publisher: Ubisoft The meaning of ‘strategy’ is, as so many genres, quite broad. While we’d normally think of an RTS like Command & Conquer or the Civilization series, for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 it refers […]

642nd played so far Genre: Pinball Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Sony Computer Entertainment Publisher: Ubisoft There are three pinball games on the list.

470th played so far Genre: Adventure/Puzzle Platform: DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Capybara Games Publisher: Ubisoft Despite its many games and genres – RPG and strategy most of all – the Might & Magic series is only represented by a single game on the list and an odd one at that. It’s a bit […]
