Dredd is a really good action movie, and you should see it in theatres before it's gone.

That is all.

Title: Tentative Halloween review schedule
Posted: September 11, 2012 (01:07 AM)
Once again, I'm planning on hitting up some horror games this Halloween. I've rounded up some titles that I -might- cover both here and at Realm of Gaming this year. I hope this year will not turn out like the last one where I was ill for most of October and unable to do many reviews, except a whole crap ton in the last week.

For HG, I'm mostly doing retro reviews. For RoG, I'll be doing a mix of retro and anything semi-curren the side could use. Anyway, I hope to hit:

HG:
BloodRayne (GCN)
Clock Tower (PSX)
Dr. Chaos (NES)
Frankenstein: The Monster Returns (NES)
Frankenstein's Monster (Atari 2600)
Ghost Manor (Atari 2600)
Haunted House (Atari 2600)
Soul (Xbox 360)
Sweet Home (NES)
Zombie Nation (NES)
Zombie Shooter 2 (PC)
Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES)

RoG:
Alan Wake (PC)
Cthulhu Saves the World (Xbox 360)
Darkness, The (PS3)
Doom (PC)
Escape from Bug Island (Wii)
Ghouls 'N Ghosts (GEN)
Home (PC)
Hydrophobia (PC)
Larva Mortus (PC)
Shadowgate (NES)
Slender (PC)
Super Castlevania IV (SNES)

I'll probably start writing these reviews tomorrow, and playing/replaying some of the games that need to be played. Because of this, my reviews this month might slow to a trickle. I still plan to hit Mega Man 2 on this site and Planet Crashers on RoG at the very least, though I would like to have Batman Returns done as well.

Scrapped projects:
Werewolf: The Last Warrior (NES)- I really don't feel like playing through this game right now.
Nation Red (PC)- I had no idea it was chiefly a multiplayer game. It's not really what I'm looking for for this project.
Ghost Slayer (Wii)- Another game I don't feel like playing right now. Maybe next year.
DecapAttack (Genesis)- Trying to trim the retro fat for my RoG submissions. I also feel this review would be more at home here at HG, with something newer (possibly indie) for RoG.

I didn't know what I was letting myself in for... it's taken over my life. Well, that and the iPad. No more Zombies, Dragonvale, and Skylanders. also pretty much games without ends.

I don't trust myself to try a never-ending MMORPG. There are too many great games with a definite ending that I still need to play first.

Title: Sci-fi MMORPG is eating my time
Posted: July 10, 2012 (09:00 PM)
Appropriately called Time World.

Really deep, with quite a complicated system of planets, heroes, battleships but with instant ship combat that is over in a second if you wish it, and a brilliant strategy mini-game called War of Heroes where you join up with three others to defeat a boss, moving your characters along 4 lines of the playing arena towards the boss, who sends out his minions to attack you.

First such game I've ever played and I'm hooked on it.

Fantastic game free on Kongregate and made by a 22 year old guy. For once a short game with a clever story hook to it. Boy is scared by a story about werewolves and decides that the only way to end his fear is to destroy the moon! Builds a plane and off you go around the world until you get enough upgrades to reach the moon!

Title: Expect more retro coverage here from yours truly
Posted: June 27, 2012 (02:42 AM)
I decided that it's a bit silly how I have close to 300 games for the NES, SNES and Genesis that I basically never play, especially since I know that I love me some retro gaming. The main issue was that I didn't want to fiddle around with having three separate retro systems hooked up to my television, which already is surrounded by newer systems.

The solution brought itself to my attention several months back: it's the Hyperkin RetroN 3. The problem was that I had a hard time "pulling the trigger" on a purchase, because technically I already have the hardware to play my games. It's in boxes here in my apartment.

Finally, I decided that if this would help me get more use out of my games, it was worth doing. So I made the purchase, along with some knockoff NES and SNES controllers (which are remarkably good and cheap). Apparently, with patents expired, people can make great hardware to play all these old games.

The system arrived today, and I have already reviewed a game as a result. I look forward to (hopefully) playing through and reviewing plenty more retro titles from my collection in the months ahead, if there's interest. I do have a lot of great games--or potentially great games that I've not yet played, despite owning them--that aren't yet reviewed on the site. I'd like to see HonestGamers get back to posting a nice selection of reviews for those older titles, not just the new stuff... though I plan to keep up with that, too, with help from freelancers and staff.

So anyway, that's an update from me. I hadn't posted in this blog for awhile, and I figured this was as good a reason to post as any!

Horror games -- good horror games -- go out of their way to make yu feel like you're a/ always being watched and b/ there is always something just behind you. It's supposed to make you feel uneasy at all times. Silent Hill: The Room knows that, but does not know how to employ a subtle touch. So:



..... yeah.

Title: Max Payne 3
Posted: May 19, 2012 (12:06 AM)
I started reviewing it tonight. If I had off tomorrow, I would just push myself to finish, but I've got to run an orientation for students that goes from 8am-4pm, so I'm headed to bed. I want to have this done by Sunday night.

The short version is that I'm giving it an 8/10, with potential for that to be a 9/10 before I'm done. It really is a fantastic game and an incredibly addictive multiplayer experience. My only problem comes from the overabundance of cutscenes (a disturbing trend in modern gaming) which too often breaks the flow of the amazing action.

Title: Journey and its ilk
Posted: May 16, 2012 (10:35 AM)
I thought I'd crap out my thoughts on this game while they are still somewhat fresh. I hope that Journey lovers don't take this as a personal attack, because it's not.

I understand that my personal aesthetic may make me a poor candidate for appreciating games like Journey; indeed, I am so bored by this kind of stuff that I can't get far enough in the game to warrant writing a proper review.

But I have to ask to nobody in particular... what's the appeal? Bear in mind that I am the same hater of all things beautiful and stripped down who doesn't have much love for Ico and Shadow of the Colossus either.

But getting back to Journey: it's a very simplistic game. I may be wrong (again, I only passed 3 or 4 'levels') but here is a title where you can really make do with one button.

The good old Sonic the Hedgehog games only made use of one button function too. But those games offered some semblance of challenge and there was lots to see and do.

Not Journey though. This 'game' is a bland beige tour through a wasteland with cyclopean structures jutting out here and there, involving hopping about and riding carpets to no worthwhile end.

On some occasions, I can pierce the heavy veil of pretentious praise from supporters and see that they love the game because it offers something 'different and beautiful in its simplicity.'

I think back to Out of This World, which was a game that was different and offered a simple, yet beautifully told story of friendship. But that game also had sick puzzles and hard as hell shooting elements. That game killed you a lot.

I imagine OoTW in an alternate universe, where Lester and the big alien just hold hands and run and jump to the end. That would have been something else.
