FPS of the Year - 1999

And here we are...all the way to 1999. It's been a long road, but it's finally come to an end. Aliens versus Predator Goddamn, could it be any faster? Well, so far it reminds me of what was done in the newest AvP, which is kinda cool....

 
 
 
 

RexwolfTrivia: It's been a while...

Sorry about the absence of trivia lately; I've been busy. I've been busy. I'm going to keep this short, because there's a RandomWolf I'm working on that'll be up by today or tomorrow. Law and (Not-so)HandsomeBeast each have one point! D...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The FMV Gumshoe

While I hate to admit it, over the years I have realised that I lack any real skill when it comes to adventure games. I don't solve problems, I usually make them and then run away from the inevitable fire and potential dismemberment. But th...

 
 
 
 

Nostalgia-Goggles: 'Pocahontas'

My video game beginnings were humble. I didn't get off to the most "hardcore" start. My foray into the gaming world began not with Duke Nukem 3D or Final Fantasy VI, but with Pocahontas for the Sega Genesis. When the game came out in 199...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Too Young to Appreciate Final Fantasy?

Out of the twenty-six years I've been on this planet, I have been gaming for about twenty-two of them, and I still cannot stomach an entire playthrough of the first Final Fantasy game. I know, I know! No one's more disappointed about that...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Freeware Tiberian Sun; or, as I call it, ULTIMATE WIN

Today, I learned possibly the happiest bit of gaming news I've heard in a long while: Command and Conquer Tiberian Sun, as well as the expansion Firestorm, were released as freeware by EA. Over a year ago, in fact; to promote the 4th Comman...

The Legend of Zelda: A Reminiscence

Famous Seamus' Classic Gaming Nook: Batman

FPS of the Year - 1998

This one's a pretty easy year, actually. Sure, there were some good games this year, but also a bunch of really shitty ones. I think we'll all agree on #1, but the other great ones this year definitely deserve your interest. Let's go! B...

 
 
 
 

FPS of the Year - 1997

This is yet another big year that houses some of my all-time favorite FPSs. And that is exactly why though it was obvious what my #1 is for this year, it was heartbreaking to not be able to do the same for so many other great titles. ANYW...

"Revisitation Rights"- Nightmare Creatures

�Revisitation Rights� is a segment dedicated to the discussion of remakes. In my eyes, a remake (unlike a reimagining) should literally �re-make� an idea that may have been previously flawed, or improve on what might have been lacking; in ...

 
 
 
 

FPS of the Year - 1996

How I Made Money Off of Pokemon in the 7th Grade

FPS of the Year - 1995
