Games time forgot: Jazz Jackrabbit


Nov 10
// Anthony Burch
So, you've played Gears of War 2, and you've heard the phrase "bigger, better, more badass" enough times to make you want to pop your eardrums with a knitting needle. But can you remember back to the days when the n...

Games time forgot: Mission: Impossible


Oct 28
// Anthony Burch
I have to be completely honest: this week's forgotten game is not good (or, as any number of you will be happy to point out, "was forgotten for a reason"). It sticks out in my mind not because it was particularly go...

Games time forgot: Hybrid Heaven


Oct 21
// Anthony Burch
I remember back when I was too stupid to realize the truth behind Nintendo Power. I read preview after preview, writeup after writeup on forthcoming Nintendo 64 games and was totally won over by the writers' enthusiasm. "...

Games time forgot: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie


Oct 14
// Anthony Burch
Like any child of the 90's, I watched the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers a lot. Like, a lot. I shuddered with fear and amazement as the saga of the mysterious Green Ranger unfolded. I sighed with relief when he finally turned g...

Games time forgot: Blue Shift


Oct 07
// Anthony Burch
A few weeks back, I talked about Opposing Force, the awesome mod for the original Half-Life which told the events of Black Mesa through the perspective of a marine named Adrian Shephard. While Adrian's story was interesting a...

Games time forgot: Virtual Boy Wario Land


Sep 30
// Anthony Burch
Wario Land: Shake It! came out last week and though I haven't played it, from our review it sounds like something that would make me long for the days of the Virtual Boy.And I don't often say that.Last week, Aaron Linde remin...

Games time forgot: Blast Corps


Sep 23
// Anthony Burch
I have no idea what's going on in the above commercial.If you owned an N64 in the 90's, then this meant two things: you probably didn't own any of the other third-generation consoles, and you tried to get excited about every ...

Games time forgot: Half-Life: Opposing Force


Sep 16
// Anthony Burch
I remember a simpler time in the Half-Life universe. When Gordon Freeman was just a lowly physicist. When "Barney" referred to an entire class of security guards rather than a particular individual. A time when the ...

Games time forgot: The Punisher (3rd person shooter)


Sep 02
// Anthony Burch
Last week, I highlighted the 2D beatemup. This week, due to the few comments asking about it and my own laziness, I'll talk about the more recent 3rd-person shooter.Though Manhunt 2 immediately comes to mind when phrases like...

Games time forgot: The Punisher


Aug 26
// Anthony Burch
What with Castle Crashers coming out tomorrow morning, I thought it might be fun to look back on a game which, while not the deepest beatemup ever made, or even one of the best, holds a special place in my heart which no othe...

Games time forgot: The Ship


Aug 19
// Anthony Burch
The Ship was, unfortunately, destined to obscurity from the very moment it was devised. Despite being a murder-based, multiplayer Half-Life mod, The Ship took something as cliche and recognizable as the contemporary deathmatc...

Games time forgot: Space Ace


Aug 12
// Anthony Burch
I woke up this morning with an inexplicable desire to play Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp. Since I lost my CD copy of the Don Bluth laserdisc trilogy, however, and since I actually played Space Ace, the previous game in that tri...

Games time forgot: Tron 2.0


Jul 29
// Anthony Burch
With all this hubbub about the teaser trailer for Tr2n, the official sequel to Tron and winner of the "insert a number in the most random place ever just to show it's a sequel" award, I'm surprised more people haven...

Games time forgot: the rest of the demo disc


Jul 22
// Anthony Burch
A few weeks back, I talked about the beauty of the Metal Gear Solid demo on an official PlayStation demo disc I had.Today, I'll try my best to remember playing the other demos on that disc.Though my memory is hazy and I can'...

Games time forgot: the Metal Gear Solid demo


Jul 08
// Anthony Burch
This may be the second weirdest forgotten game I ever talk about. The demo for Metal Gear Solid on the PS1 is not really a game in and of itself, and the full title it demoes is nowhere near forgotten. And who has nostalgia f...

Games Time Forgot: Earth Defense Force 2017


Jun 17
// Colette Bennett
  Before I begin here, I have to preface this Games Time Forgot with a warning -- if you go pick this game up thinking that you are going to find a diamond in the rough when it comes to quality, this is not your ga...

Games time forgot: I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream


Jun 11
// Anthony Burch
If you've never read the short story "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream" by Harlan Ellison, do so. It's one of the best short stories ever, and not in an O. Henry "oh life is kinda funny and wonderful but sad s...

Games time forgot: Timon and Pumbaa's Jungle Games


Jun 03
// Anthony Burch
Does anyone, apart from Chad Concelmo, remember Timon and Pumbaa? Does anyone remember the hijinx of Simba's fun-loving meerkat and warthog companions, who added much-needed levity to what was basically a family-friendly rete...

Games time forgot: Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster Busts Loose


May 06
// Anthony Burch
Now, I know you're thinking one of two things: either "oh, awesome; this is one of those neat Tiny Toons games Treasure did for the Game Boy Advance," or "oh, great; another crappy Games Time Forgot on a crappy...

Games time forgot: Lock n' Chase


Apr 29
// Niero Desu
  Hey kids! Let's all gather around uncle Niero and shut the f*ck up about Grand Theft Auto IV!  In the absense of the honorable Reverend Burch you're stuck with a bitter old man who's about to wag his cane at ...

Games time forgot: Metal Gear: Ghost Babel


Apr 22
// Anthony Burch
I briefly talked about it on this week's RetroforceGO!, but it bears repeating: Metal Gear Solid for the Game Boy Color, originally known as Metal Gear: Ghost Babel, is probably the best Metal Gear title nobody's heard of. Yo...

Games time forgot: Bangai-O


Apr 15
// Anthony Burch
While I know you pirates of less-than-stellar moral uprighteousness have probably already NOT pirated the hell out of the Japanese version of this game's DS remake, it's important to remember where you come from. While Bangai...

Games time forgot: The Adventures of Cookie and Cream


Apr 08
// Anthony Burch
It's cute, it's friendly, and it's got a cooperative campaign that can be played with two, four, or even one player(s). It's The Adventures of Cookie and Cream, and it is as certifiably badass as any game starring two adorable rabbit creatures can possibly be badass.Hit the jump for details.

Games time forgot: Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb


Mar 25
// Anthony Burch
Nearly two months ago, I talked about Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures, a way-too-hard SNES title which sought to recreate the feel of all three original Indiana Jones movies. The game was pretty good, but it's got nothing...

Allow me to share with you a short email conversation between myself and Niero.Niero: Got a nomination for games time forgot.[the above picture]this game was so f*cking hard, but so awesome. Anthony: That mullet ALONE just s...

Games time forgot: 2-XL


Mar 04
// Anthony Burch
Who says a videogame needs to be on a TV? Or played with a controller? Or have graphics?2-XL may have been technically marketed as a toy, but it was really a de facto game console: each available 2-XL cassette tape included d...

Games time forgot: James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing


Feb 26
// Anthony Burch
I think last week may have been the second time we've ever missed a games time forgot. I think. Don't quote me on that, but I still thought it was worth mentioning if only because this week, I'm highlighting a game which Dto...

Games time forgot: Jordan vs Bird: One on One


Feb 12
// Anthony Burch
I'm going to be completely honest: I don't actually know if this game is any good. I played the hell out of it when I was a child -- it was the second videogame I ever got -- and I enjoyed it then, but (A) back then I also th...

Games time forgot: Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures


Feb 05
// Anthony Burch
After last week's Super Star Wars Trilogy write-up, it's now time to highlight the other unknown trilogy game: Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures.It's basically like the Super Star Wars Trilogy, except it's based on a much be...

Games time forgot: The Super Star Wars Trilogy


Jan 29
// Anthony Burch
Perhaps it's just the fact that almost every single one of my elementary schools was absolutely obsessed with the franchise, but I seem to remember playing this week's game(s) time forgot at least once a year during my format...
