So Bad It’s Good: Run Like Hell (And Grab Your Bawls)

A guy travelling through space arrives at his intended destination to discover nearly everyone on board is dead, and his love interest is missing. Occasionally with the help of a partner, but usually all by himself, he proceeds through the levels in third-person perspective, solving puzzles, reading other people’s e-mail, upgrading his arsenal, and destroying aliens […]

So Bad It’s Good – Dark Summit Rocked the Slopes

If you ask someone to name a great snowboarding game from the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube generation, the only one that should come to mind for any normal person will have ‘SSX’ somewhere in the title. Anyone who’s first response is Dark Summit, published by THQ in 2001, isn’t in full possession of his faculties. Evidence for this […]

Shadow of the Colossus Atari 2600 Revived After Hardware Crash

A while back I covered the Atari 2600 port of Shadow of the Colossus by AtariAge member, “Ultima”.  Since I last covered Shadow of the Colossus for the Atari 2600 there has been a hardware crash that cost Ultima all of his previous code.  Since then he has gone back to the drawing board and […]

Revenge of the License: Densha de Go! Series

Here’s a new twist for this column. Instead of looking at a game that takes its inspiration from a comic, film, television show, cartoon, or book, today I’m going to look at a series which licenses its game play from the best source on Earth: real life. In this case, miles and miles of railroad […]

Rockbot Review, Fanmade Mega Man Game Rocks

Okay, it is pretty clear that Capcom are transitioning down with their new IPs and rebooting of classic titles.  That is bad news for everyone but Street Fighter fans, which apparently writes checks in its sleep.  Well, there is a dedicated group of fans that are not content with letting Capcom’s blue bomber sit idly […]

Today in Gaming History: Aggressive Inline or Tony Hawk’s Eight-Wheeled Skater

Thirteen years ago on August 23, 2002 a game that was very near and dear to my heart as a teenager, Aggressive Inline made its debut. Well technically, that’s when the Xbox version was released. In the United Kingdom and Germany. I had the American PlayStation 2 version which was released on May 29 of […]

Tony and Me: My Favorite Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Memories

The year was 1999 and I was in eighth grade. Pizza Hut ran a promotion. You buy a pizza and you get one of two PlayStation demo discs, each containing demos of upcoming games. I cannot remember nine of the ten games (although I think Ape Escape and Sled Storm were among them), but I […]

Five Games You Need the Japanese Version to Fully Enjoy

It’s not news to say Japan gets tons of stuff the rest of the world does not, but at least they throw non-Asian gamers a bone every now and then. Usually this is in the form of a simple port, where all the text is translated and (hopefully) localized for the target market. This localization […]

Psychonauts was the Game that Wouldn’t Die – Today in History – April 19th, 2005

To say that Psychonauts had a storied development would be kind of an understatement.  What started out in the wild world of the classic LucasArts title Full Throttle expanded, nearly died and was revived again by the hands of one man.  Tim Schafer.  What became Psychonauts was originally to be a drug filled romp through […]

Take Kratos to Hades and Back in God of War for Playstation 2 – Today in History – March 22nd, 2005

God of War was one of the first games that I saw on the Playstation 2 that really made me sit up and take notice.  I knew of the PS2 prior to God of War but it was more passive interest for me.  The idea of controlling this guy that was to take on the […]
