#Games Time Forgot

Games time forgot: Jazz Jackrabbit

So, you've played Gears of War 2, and you've heard the phrase "bigger, better, more badass" enough times to make you want to pop your eardrums with a knitting needle. But can you remember back to the days when the name "Cliff...

Games time forgot: Mission: Impossible

I have to be completely honest: this week's forgotten game is not good (or, as any number of you will be happy to point out, "was forgotten for a reason"). It sticks out in my mind not because it was particularly good, or innovati...

Games time forgot: Hybrid Heaven

I remember back when I was too stupid to realize the truth behind Nintendo Power. I read preview after preview, writeup after writeup on forthcoming Nintendo 64 games and was totally won over by the writers' enthusiasm. "Man!," I ...

Games time forgot: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie

Like any child of the 90's, I watched the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers a lot. Like, a lot. I shuddered with fear and amazement as the saga of the mysterious Green Ranger unfolded. I sighed with relief when he finally turned good and became ...

Games time forgot: Blue Shift

A few weeks back, I talked about Opposing Force, the awesome mod for the original Half-Life which told the events of Black Mesa through the perspective of a marine named Adrian Shephard. While Adrian's story was interesting and fun in its o...

Games time forgot: Virtual Boy Wario Land

Wario Land: Shake It! came out last week and though I haven't played it, from our review it sounds like something that would make me long for the days of the Virtual Boy.And I don't often say that.Last week, Aaron Linde reminded me that des...

Games time forgot: Blast Corps

I have no idea what's going on in the above commercial.If you owned an N64 in the 90's, then this meant two things: you probably didn't own any of the other third-generation consoles, and you tried to get excited about every single minor re...

Games time forgot: Half-Life: Opposing Force

I remember a simpler time in the Half-Life universe. When Gordon Freeman was just a lowly physicist. When "Barney" referred to an entire class of security guards rather than a particular individual. A time when the only transdimen...

Games time forgot: The Punisher (3rd person shooter)

Last week, I highlighted the 2D beatemup. This week, due to the few comments asking about it and my own laziness, I'll talk about the more recent 3rd-person shooter.Though Manhunt 2 immediately comes to mind when phrases like "censored...

Games time forgot: The Punisher

What with Castle Crashers coming out tomorrow morning, I thought it might be fun to look back on a game which, while not the deepest beatemup ever made, or even one of the best, holds a special place in my heart which no other Final Fight c...

Games time forgot: The Ship

The Ship was, unfortunately, destined to obscurity from the very moment it was devised. Despite being a murder-based, multiplayer Half-Life mod, The Ship took something as cliche and recognizable as the contemporary deathmatch and turned it...

Games time forgot: Space Ace

I woke up this morning with an inexplicable desire to play Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp. Since I lost my CD copy of the Don Bluth laserdisc trilogy, however, and since I actually played Space Ace, the previous game in that trilogy quite a bi...

Games time forgot: Tron 2.0

With all this hubbub about the teaser trailer for Tr2n, the official sequel to Tron and winner of the "insert a number in the most random place ever just to show it's a sequel" award, I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned th...

Games time forgot: the rest of the demo disc

A few weeks back, I talked about the beauty of the Metal Gear Solid demo on an official PlayStation demo disc I had.Today, I'll try my best to remember playing the other demos on that disc.Though my memory is hazy and I can't find a defini...

Games time forgot: the Metal Gear Solid demo

This may be the second weirdest forgotten game I ever talk about. The demo for Metal Gear Solid on the PS1 is not really a game in and of itself, and the full title it demoes is nowhere near forgotten. And who has nostalgia for a demo, anyw...

Games Time Forgot: Earth Defense Force 2017

  Before I begin here, I have to preface this Games Time Forgot with a warning -- if you go pick this game up thinking that you are going to find a diamond in the rough when it comes to quality, this is not your game. The voice-o...

Games time forgot: I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream

If you've never read the short story "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream" by Harlan Ellison, do so. It's one of the best short stories ever, and not in an O. Henry "oh life is kinda funny and wonderful but sad sometimes" ...

Games time forgot: Timon and Pumbaa's Jungle Games

Does anyone, apart from Chad Concelmo, remember Timon and Pumbaa? Does anyone remember the hijinx of Simba's fun-loving meerkat and warthog companions, who added much-needed levity to what was basically a family-friendly retelling of Hamlet...

Games time forgot: Lock n' Chase

  Hey kids! Let's all gather around uncle Niero and shut the f*ck up about Grand Theft Auto IV!  In the absense of the honorable Reverend Burch you're stuck with a bitter old man who's about to wag his cane at you whipper sna...

Games time forgot: Metal Gear: Ghost Babel

I briefly talked about it on this week's RetroforceGO!, but it bears repeating: Metal Gear Solid for the Game Boy Color, originally known as Metal Gear: Ghost Babel, is probably the best Metal Gear title nobody's heard of. You'd assume that...

Games time forgot: Bangai-O

While I know you pirates of less-than-stellar moral uprighteousness have probably already NOT pirated the hell out of the Japanese version of this game's DS remake, it's important to remember where you come from. While Bangai-O Spirits migh...

Games time forgot: The Adventures of Cookie and Cream

It's cute, it's friendly, and it's got a cooperative campaign that can be played with two, four, or even one player(s). It's The Adventures of Cookie and Cream, and it is as certifiably badass as any game starring two adorable rabbit creatu...

Games time forgot: Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb

Nearly two months ago, I talked about Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures, a way-too-hard SNES title which sought to recreate the feel of all three original Indiana Jones movies. The game was pretty good, but it's got nothing on Indiana Jon...
