Bargain Bin Laden #22: Psychonauts

Psychonauts. Yeah, I know -- sort of like Beyond Good and Evil, one of those games that needs no introduction, that almost hourly enjoys some sort of running of the mouth by one journalist or another. I'm introducing it as such to take a bi...

Bargain Bin Laden #21: R-Type Final

Søren Kierkegaard once wrote, "I see it all perfectly; there are two possible situations - one can either do this or that. My honest opinion and my friendly advice is this: do it or do not do it - you will regret both." Mr....

Bargain Bin Laden #20: Gunstar Super Heroes

Today, BBL rolls up on the big two-oh. I was planning on some grand gesture to celebrate, like some sort of Destructoid team photo where we're all fighting each other while riding bears or something, but I hear that's illegal in these parts...

Bargain Bin Laden #19: Otogi

Things look pretty bleak for the next month or so, don't they? Ah, summertime -- when the gaming industry actually offers a pretty compelling excuse to get off your ass and get outside. There's not much between here and the end of A...

Bargain Bin Laden #16: Zone of the Enders

Long-time BBL readers know that I'm no stranger to giant robots. You might recall when I covered... huh, okay, no giant robots in the games I've covered, anyway. But I dated one in college, which was awkward, especially bringing the...

Bargain Bin Laden #15: Crimson Skies

Today we reach back to hallowed antiquity in a loosely related sort of way. Back in The Day I covered an oft-overlooked title for BBL called Sky Odyssey, and it's difficult to write up this week's feature, Crimson Skies: High Road to Reveng...

Aaron Linde is busy hunting terrorists with Jack Bauer, so I'm taking over Bargain Bin Laden this week. This week's game, Freedom Fighters, is one that I've actually discussed with Mr. Linde at some length. This is one of those ...

Bargain Bin Laden #13: Dragon Quest VIII

This week's selection ain't exactly obscure, but it is one of the best RPGs ever made. If you haven't already played Dragon Quest VIII, it's likely that you've spoken with someone who has, or read one of the thousand glo...

Bargain Bin Laden #12: Scurge: Hive

This week's Bargain Bin Laden begins with a personal gripe: Nintendo and NST really crapped in my cereal with Metroid Prime: Hunters. Not because it was a bad game -- quite the contrary, actually -- but just because the original Prime t...

Bargain Bin Laden 11: Contra: Shattered Soldier

Happy Holy Zombie Day, pixies -- since all but ten to fifteen of you have meandered towards a computer and away from drunken relatives arguing over divinity and chocolate eggs and large sums of borrowed money, I figure I've gotta do my ...

Bargain Bin Laden 10: Shenmue II

Good god, it's been a long couple of weeks. If you haven't already read my bitching and complaining elsewhere, the story is this: three weeks before the end of my penultimate Winter quarter at Western Washington University, I realiz...

Bargain Bin Laden #9: God Hand

So, God Hand. Let's get those big questions cleared away before we begin, shall we?First, those of you paying attention might note that while God Hand recently enjoyed a nigh-universal price cut, the new $19.99 new / $17.99 used sticker...

High Scores: our best garage sale gaming finds

I had the most wonderful dream last night. Hey, where are you going? I swear it has nothing to do with me, a bottle of scotch, a swimming pool full of maple syrup and one Mr. Ron Workman. Well, not this dream, anyway.No, this dream was a ma...

Bargain Bin Laden #7: Beyond Good and Evil

You don't really need me to go on and on about Ubisoft's incredible Beyond Good and Evil, do you? The same people that busy themselves fellating Fumito Ueda over Shadow of the Colossus and ICO and waxing philosophical on the genius ...

Bargain Bin Laden #6: Gunvalkyrie

I'd like to think that our usual audiences would be present and accounted for today, but let's face it: most of you are watching the game, drunk and awash in nacho cheese. I could phone this one in and nobody'd be the wiser! Thi...

Bargain Bin Laden #5: Donkey Kong Jungle Beat

Sorry for the interruption in programming, kids. Due to forces beyond my control like physics and math and other kinds of science, BBL's gonna be a Sunday deal from here on out. We cool? Good. I hate it when we fight, baby. I just wanna...

Bargain Bin Laden #3: Mobile Light Force 2

Settle down, children, and let ol' BBL tell you a tale; a tale of mystery, intrigue, and ultimate suffering. It is a story of Japanese shooters and their horrible and inappropriately localized US counterparts, of witchcraft, and sailboa...
