Hype: Jet Set Radioooooo!!!

I could loudly bellow about Jet Set Radio and its Xbox sequel until the riot vans show up. They are my favourite games of all time and probably always will be. Their unique styles, cool-ass gameplay mechanics and intoxicatingly brilliant so...

Disappointment: Fable III & the Molyneux Guffstorm

Oh Peter Molyneux, whatever are we to do with you? Countless hours of my life have been squandered on your games; most of which have been excellent. Disregarding health and safety in Theme Hospital, making B-movie schlock in The Movies, and...

 
 
 

My thoughts on Mass Effect 3's ending.

CAUTION: MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!! Well well, Bioware. You've really stirred up the hive! I've read that 90% of users on Bioware's own forums were more than dissatisfied with the trilogy's conclusion, and rightly so. The ending practically ig...

 
 
 

Rhysybaby's Semi-Cynical: The Bleak Future of DLC

I just finished reading Tony Ponce's review of the soul-crushingly disappointing Megaman X iOS port, and while it's not the first time a classic has been forced to walk the plank (Shadowrun anyone?), there was one detail featured in the rev...

 
 

About Rhysybabyone of us since 3:03 PM on 03.02.2012

I'm an avid gamer who relishes any chance to talk about his favourite games. I was born in '92, started gaming in '95 on what you Americans call a Sega Genesis. Back then, all I cared about was Sonic, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Chuck Rock. Later in life it was Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, Destruction Derby, Duke Nukem, Metal Gear Solid, Abe's Oddysee and many other Playstation classics. Since then I've amassed a collection of games and consoles with my 10 all-time favourites being:

1. Jet Set Radio, Jet Set Radio Future
2. Tales of Symphonia
3. Persona 4
4. Dark Souls
5. Chrono Trigger
6. Metroid Prime 1 & 2
7. Ocarina of Time (obligatory Zelda title)
8. Silent Hill 3
9. Killer7
10. MGS 3: Snake Eater

Well technically, that's 12. But...erm...yeah.

Recently finished Mass Effect 3. Let's just say it's all about the journey, not the destination. I think with this statement in mind, it's one of the greatest stories ever told in videogames.
