This game is on my list of shame for games I have not beaten but really should have. The game is basically from Square's SNES "golden age." Its the story of a kid from the burbs that wakes up because a metorite crashed close to his house. I am not going to spoil any of the story but things get interesting fast.

The game is unique because the main character is a regular kid from a regular town. The enemies in the first areas are skate punks, birds and other normal things. The art style is very unique but the game doesn't hide that you are going from town to town in suburbia. Until you go into the city and other later areas.

The game has a great story and the way... Read All

I try out many iPhone games because often times they are free and are a great way to spend a few minutes when your waiting for something or before bed. Fruit Ninja is a popular game I downloaded for free to test out.

Basically you swipe your finger across fruit to cut it like a Ninja. You get points for doing that. It gets harder or something and then you slice more fruit with your finger. You get ranked for your fruit Ninja fu.

Its no longer on my iPhone.

This game is listed as a Playstation 2 game, but it was actually a sweet arcade game that was released on DVD and marketed as "Playstation 2 Compatible."

I only actually remember playing this game once, but it's always been stuck in my head as "That really cool hologram game." I couldn't honestly even remember what it was called, but a recent post on Dragon's Lair jarred my memory. (Time Traveler was designed by the same guy that created Dragon's Lair)

I remember being blown away watching this game. It reminded me of the holograph scenes in Star Wars.

Such a rad game.

After months of practice and a BIJILLION quarters, I finally killed the dragon. I was actually sweating at the end, but I was jubilant.

I once played this game online over a modem. Honestly, I don't remember if it was 14.4 or 56k.
It was with a good friend's brother in law.The game was really intense, but I managed to build a nuke over time. He had the upper hand by that point, until I wiped out his commander with a nuke.
I lost the telephone connection and within seconds the phone rang. He was pretty steamed, saying that we had never decided before the game that nukes were ok to use. Heck, we never had a pre-war pow wow about any of the weapons. All's fair in love and computer wars.

Civilization Revolution is the best turn based strategy ive played on a console. The game is stripped down compared to Civilization 4 on PC but that doesn't mean its less fun. In fact, I believe the game is stronger because it does less.

All you have is the PS3 or XBOX controller so they had to reduce the complexity for the game to work very well on those systems. For instance, your tech tree isn't as deep. You have less military unit options. Your diplomacy options are not as advanced. You have less details to manage. There is less world real estate too. All that said, its as much fun as I remember the original DOS version was.

There are a few kinds of... Read All

So I've liked what I've read here. Just decided to click the Buy from amazon.com button and bought it! Now I have to wait 4-14 days... ugh! I hate waiting!

Just started playing this game the other day after hearing about it on Weekend Confirmed. Its free, so if you have an iPhone you should check it out.

The premise is you have a jetpack and you are running and need to avoid getting hit by rockets and traps. Its basically another runner game similar to Robot Unicorn Attack. You collect coins in the game and can spend them on you player customization and upgraded jetpacks and the like. Like many freemium games on the iPhone you can pay money to get coins so you can outright buy the items instead of collecting coins by playing it.

So far ive collected about 4.5k coins and my best distance is 2,678m.

Like @Adym, I too remember this game.

I pretty much always played as the Banker from Boston so I could buy a ton of bullets and shoot squirrels. One time a classmate and I shot a squirrel hunderds of times to see if the amount of squirrel meat in pounds would increase.

Sadly it did not. It was still only 2 pounds.

Been listening to a lot of podcasts and reading articles and Portal 2 seems to be on most peoples game of the year lists. Im not sure I had a game of the year for 2011, but Portal 2 was on of the most unique experiences ive had behind the ps3.

For starters my wife enjoyed watching me play the game. She had the same feelings about Halflife 2, she wouldn't let me play it if she wasn't present to miss out on the story. Portal 2 starts out with a bang and throws you right back into Aperture Science as you wake up from a long hibernation period to a funny robot named Wheatley.

I never felt like the puzzles were impossible but occasionally I was stumped for a few... Read All

Who didn't play this game at school? Remember to buy as many bullets as you can!

The game still holds up. There's a Facebook version that's decent, but the original is pretty awesome.

This is one of my all time favorite games. So many fun memories of playing this multiplayer with my friends and cousins! The music was great, the graphics and animations were cool, the weapon selection was awesome, and best of all up to 3 people could play all at the same time!

This site is making me reminisce about old SNES and NES games a lot, lol.

There is definatly a reason why this game is famous, at least in the retro gamers circuit. Nope, it's not for it's awesome gameplay or even colorful anime type intro, but rather for the worst translation ever known in video game history. The game itself is actually kinda fun, not the best shoot'em'up I ever played but definatly not the worst either. You have 4 different types of ammo to use throughout the stages each of which can be powered up, sadly none of the power ups really look all that cool when your shootin, but its still fun none the less and a little challenging, but because there isn't much else to this shooter to set it apart from others of it's...

Often times one can wonder, how come we never got that game here in the states. It is no secret that the ratio of games (at least back in the 90's) that get translated and than ported to the states from Japan is like 1:20. I even read somewhere once that for every one japanese RPG that gets translated and imported for release in the US there were at least 10 that didnt. Anyhow, so whats the reason that so many games never see the light of day outside of Japan. Usually its because of content, such as religious content, or culture(or pop culture even) but othertimes it's just cause of just plain weird wackiness that is deemed way to out there for the US market....
