A Bad Game I Still Love Anyway: Battle Hunter

Everyone has one. That one game that you love to play occasionally, even though you know it's terrible and would never earn you the fabled "Gamer Cred". For mine, we head to the PS1 era to take a look at a game called Battle Hunter. The s...

 
 
 

Old Game is Old: Colonization

Sure, everyone heaps praise on Sid Meier's Civilization as being a wonderful game, and yes, it pretty much deserves all that praise. On its fourth main iteration so far, no game has been keeping players itching for "just one more turn" more...

 
 
 

Diversionary Tactics: Cottage of Doom

Here we go again, with another game meant to take away your free time in moments of boredom. As an added bonus for the Halloween season, this one is chock full of zombie goodness. A recent entry into The Independent Games Source B-Game comp...

 
 
 

Diversionary Tactics: Jardinains 2!

What? Another random post instead of an RPG Spotlight? Well, truthfully, awesome obscure RPGs are slim at the moment, at least until I go out scouring again, so unless anyone has any suggestions, you're stuck with me branching out into the ...

 
 
 

Old Game is Old: Realms of the Haunting

I can't really call this an RPG Spotlight, because, well, this isn't an RPG. However, it is another great game that I enjoyed that generally gets overlooked by the gaming public for whatever reason. Realms of the Haunting is best describ...

 
 
 
 

RPG Spotlight: NetHack

Okay, Okay, I know. NetHack is not exactly the most obscure RPG out there. Especially because whenever there is a list of "Most Influential RPGs" or whatnot, either NetHack or another Roguelike (or even Rogue itself) is on the list. Howev...

 
 
 

RPG Spotlight: Albion

Albion is admittedly, a game that even I hadn't heard of until recently. I was doing my usual random browsing of the interwebs, and came across a lovely abandonware site. Checking out the RPG section, because of course I'm an RPG whore, t...

 
 
 
 

RPG Spotlight: Avernum

When writing up these little articles, I tend to try to focus on games that many haven't played before, while still remaining decent games in their own right. Today, the spotlight shines on another older game, which itself is a complete r...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Tabula Rasa Beta Impressions

Well, I've been able to give Tabula Rasa some of my time, and have got a pretty good idea of whether it'll be something I'll want to play once the game goes gold. Sci-Fi is a rather rare choice for an MMORPG, and with a name like Richard Ga...

 
 
 
 

RPG Spotlight: Dragon Wars

Ahhh Interplay. Once a company whose name was happily upon the tongue of gamers everywhere, known for quality games and great times, how the mighty have fallen these days. However, in spite of their current situation, the company's back cat...

 
 
 

Guild Wars: Eye of the North Impressions

Well, as some of you may know, this past weekend was the sneak-peek weekend for Guild Wars: Eye of the North. The expansion goes live next weekend, so I doubt many changes will be done before then, but with what I managed to see in the litt...

 
 
 

I'm a sucker for extras

It's true. Blame it on Working Designs, and all of the awesome things they used to shove into their boxes when they were still around, but I'm a real sucker for pre-order bonuses, or any other sort of extras that get sent along with a game ...

 
 
 

God Hand, unloved and underappreciated?

Recently, my brother picked up a copy of God Hand, which I remember reading about, but it flew under the radar with so many other releases to worry about, so I never managed to get at release. After spending some time with it, I must say th...

 
 
 

Sure, Madden '08 has a host of features...

...but there's one that they really need to bring back. The Ambulance Back in Madden '92, whenever a player was injured, an ambulance would drive out onto the field, pummeling any players that got in its way. Imagine how much fun this wo...

 
 
 

How many D's?

Lately I've been taking the time to catch up on a lot of PS2 games that I never got the chance to play through when they were new. Over the past few days, I've been working my way through Atelier Iris 2, and it occurred to me that I think I...

 
 
 

So, where do you all shop for games?

After bluemeep's blog post about how unreliable the EBGamestop inventory checker is, it got me to wondering where most of you go when you've got to get a game. Around where I live, there are both Gamestop / EBGames and Game Crazy stores, so...

 
 
 

Virtual Wishes #2

Continuing on from my last entry, another game that I'd like to see on the Virtual Console, and which would make a much nicer addition than say, Mach Rider, is one that I feel has little chance of appearing, but I'm going to talk about it a...

 
 
 

Virtual Wishes #1

Well, the Virtual Console has a decent selection of games so far, and although there are some that definitely don't belong (Urban Champion anyone?), many of the games are ones that I'd likely find myself playing. However, there are still ma...

 
 
 

What if they held an MMO, and nobody came?

Just recently, I decided to go looking for something new in the MMO space. Having been a dedicated player of Guild Wars, and someone who had dabbled with WoW for some time, I was getting to the point where I needed something other than swor...

 
 

About Shawn Kelfonneone of us since 8:13 PM on 01.05.2007

Well, let's see, I've got a ridiculously sized game collection, spanning from Coleco to Wii, with much of what's in between. The Super Nintendo was the height of awesome for me, and I still break it out once in a while to relive those memories.

I'm also a fairly big RPG nut, recently been playing WoW, may god have mercy on my soul.

I've got all three "current-gen" systems, and love them all for various reasons.


Currently playing:
WoW
Rock Band 2(360)
