Dreamcast shooter Sturmwind released, 16 years later

Shooters, SHMUPS, STGs. Call them what you want, but let's agree we don't have enough of them these days. Indie developers are changing that and are doing it on an unexpected platform: SEGA's Dreamcast. The latest two shoot-...

Storm's Adventure with Sonic Adventure

This is what I call "Playing Catch Up." I haven't made a post since October, but still I'm making videos. Due to the holidays, the release of the Wii U, and general laziness, I haven't made my usual rounds. So expect a few d...

Pier Solar HD hits funding goal on Kickstarter

2010's homebrew Sega Genesis RPG Pier Solar was one of those projects that was fun to watch from the sidelines, but I never got to actually play it myself. That's what was great about development team WaterMelon turning to Ki...

Super efficient trailer announces Crazy Taxi for iPhone

11 seconds! That's how long this short, sweet trailer for Crazy Taxi will take to watch. Oddly enough, in that amount of time, we're told much of what we need to know about this release. The iOS version of the classic Dreamc...

100% Series Retrospective: Resident Evil photo
100% Series Retrospective: Resident Evil
by Chris Carter

[Read on for a description of every Resident Evil game ever released in the US, and my completion of them all in 2012.]

Why Resident Evil?

This year, Capcom is pushing out three entirely new Resident Evil games -- it's also the 15th Anniversary of Resident Evil: Director's Cut, which is the first RE game I fully completed. So why am I playing the series in the first place?

Honestly, Resident Evil 1 was one of the first times, outside of Metal Gear Solid and Tenchu, where I was completely immersed in the game and its world. I remember plotting out where I'd gone in the mansion in a custom map at 10 years old (no guides), and wanting nothing else than seeing "what's next."

I couldn't get enough of the unique scenarios the game offered, like dogs crashing through a window, or a terrifying snake appearing out of nowhere. It wasn't necessarily the claustrophobia and the slow-moving zombies that made me love the series -- it was the sheer amount of variety the game offered up.

If you haven't joined me on my Quests before, the way they work is pretty simple. It's kind of like a retrospective, but rather than just give you an overview of a franchise, I'll generally let you know what I thought of the game when it was released, and what I think of it now. If I didn't provide a complete vision of what the game is like before I replay it, I'll provide an "extended thoughts" section below each applicable entry. I'll update my progress in real time through my blog, and after I finish the entire Quest, I'll share it with you guys on the front page.

Dreamcast alive and well thanks to GunLord

It's been over a decade since Sega shut off the Dreamcast's life support and cut the system's life cycle tragically short, and yet, new games still somehow manage to find their way to the system. Thanks in large part to small...
