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...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #17: Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga

There's a particular point in this week's BBL that I'm going to say now, because I'll invariably get kicked in the face for saying so -- let's get the face-kickin' out of the way as quick as possible. I hold firm the...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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 ...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #6: Gunvalkyrie

Bargain Bin Laden #4: Jet Set Radio Future/Sega GT 2002

Before I'm drawn and quartered for the extreme tardiness of this week's BBL, let me assure you that it was not my wish to delay. Rather, the Great and Terrible Gods of Consumer Electronics deemed me unfit to carry on with my ag&eacu...   read
