After the events in FFX, life resumed peacefully, with the threat of the extraordinarily hideous Sin gone. The setting is once again Spira and regions such as Zanarkand, Besaid, and Luca, albeit with several changes. The most noticeable one is that Spira is no longer the gloomy, almost claustrophobic world it once was where everybody was pessimistic and whining about their fate. People are now more cheerful, and it is immediately obvious Sin is nothing more than a souvenir now. To prove this eve...
I'm usually not a big fan of puzzlers, but Pipe Dream nevertheless enthralled me thanks to its simple designs and a totally intuitive game play. As you may have guessed, this game revolves around pipes, your main objective being to build consistent pipelines to allow a white sticky liquid to flow through it. The core principles are really that simple, but of course, the game itself is challenging and very tough (near the end) while never losing its charm.
In reality, Ka Ge Ki got all the attention it now has when Hangedman, a reviewing buddy, got the idea of asking everyone to review the game. And thus did some reviewers who obviously had time and money to spare.
Rumors have it that Hydlide was released on this planet to turn humans into weaklings so a bunch of cutesy, bi-colored characters could invade us.
Movies usually makes lousy games –at most, decent. Don’t worry; Chicken Run is no exception. It isn’t a decent game –rather, it is a lousy game. The repetition in this introduction can as a matter of fact be observed throughout the whole game.
Once upon a time, grew a boy, in Japan, called Tsubasa Ozora. Tsubasa would ever since his birth act differently from his peers. Indeed, while his buddies would relentlessly talk about their favorite comics, movies and girls, Tsubasa would remain alone. It should however be said that Tsubasa was not really alone. He would spend a lot of time with his best friend. His best friend was a ball, a football (soccer).
Game: Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition (Miscellaneous)
Posted: December 18, 2003 (01:56 AM)
Does Unreal Tournament, widely considered as one of the best first-person shooters around (if not the best!), even need to be introduced? Hell, for many, UT is even much more than that (i.e. the best FPS around). When Unreal was released, it did what many games hoped to do, but almost always miserably failed. It caught gamers’ attention, and caused them to show interest in a genre they once ignored, or maybe even despised. I personally never cared for first-person shooters before that glo...
Game: Captain Tsubasa III: Koutei no Chousen (SNES)
Posted: October 19, 2003 (06:46 AM)
I remember the first time I watched Captain Tsubasa. Football (or soccer) meant absolutely nothing to me back then, but morbid curiosity (or my tendency to try and make fun of everything) and boredom convinced me to watch the entire episode. And what I saw was very refreshing (as opposed to the usual decrepit anime). Captain Tsubasa had everything you could hope for: a good plot (albeit being a bit predictable from time to time), lovable characters (in most cases) and something else that ...
Game: Captain Tsubasa V: Hasha no Shougou Canpione (SNES)

Very few series can claim to be as successful as the Captain Tsubasa series. By ''Successful'', I am not referring to the sales of the game or how popular it was when it was released. I am referring to the essence of games, that thing that simply drags you in and makes you yearn for more. The video game industry abounds with series in every genre. As a matter of fact, one could even say it is plagued with such series, with titles that fail to appeal, but that continue to be release...
Game: Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master (Genesis)
Posted: June 18, 2003 (09:25 PM)
Joe Musashi, renowned master of the Shinobi, may have peacefully gone on a well-earned vacation, but it seems that Neo Zeed apparently never learnt it was futile to argue against the world's greatest ninja. To reassert this fact, Neo Zeed even went as far as placing a bounty on the ninja's head upon its stylish return. As a self-respecting ninja, Joe nevertheless anticipated this move from the powerful organization; all the time that elapsed since his last 'mission' was spen...
Game: Superman: The New Superman Adventures (Nintendo 64)

It is a recurring event to say gamers join in chats to talk about their passion and to exchange views, amidst profound remarks (sometimes) and insults (often). Ever since I gleefully joined all these legions of gamers, there is always one topic that is bound to pop up, whether intentionally or by accident (most likely, the result of another weary insult): ''what r t3h worsts game s EVAR?''
Game: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (SNES)
Posted: June 18, 2003 (12:27 AM)
The cross between turtles and ninjas worked wonders, as kids marveled at the adventures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As the new generation of heroes battled against the almighty Shredder’s legions of foes, always ending with a confrontation with Shredder himself (where the latter would invariably lose and flee after claiming he would one day finally dispose of the turtles), kids eagerly awaited each episode and bought whatever product was spawned off the series. The Teenage Mutant Ninja ...
There was a time when the vast majority of games released on the SNES consisted of action RPG's. Games like The Legend of Zelda had made such an impact that developers soon realized the genre was a favorite among gamers and this potential was savagely exploited with titles upon titles being released. Enix shined as one of those companies specializing in the genre with popular titles that such as Soul Blazer, which would later evolve into one of the most formidable series for the SN...
In spite of the fact that it features Mario, the world's most famous plumber, Wrecking Crew never managed to pull itself out of the ditch of unjustly unknown games. Yet, while boasting nothing outlandish, Wrecking Crew is a good time-waster that everybody would enjoy if he'd just care to give it enough time. Of course, in order to be able to do so, he must first find the game itself, which, I'll admit, isn't a very easy task nowadays.
Castlevania, considered by many as one of the best action series Konami came up with, made its debut on the NES when Simon Belmont, a guy with time and guts to spare, thought about defying Lord Dracula in his old and crumbling castle. Like most gamers who indulge in action games (who doesn't?), I too am a fan of the Castlevania series. It may not look like it since I'm about to bash the original title, but I adored the SNES and Genesis titles, and while I wasn't particularly enthralled wi...
Had it not been for Namco and its stupendous Tekken series, Sony's console would surely have been ignored by fighting enthusiasts. While Sega's Dreamcast kept getting faithful ports of Arcade classics (of which there are too may to list!), the PlayStation could barely oppose some resistance with some of the same titles getting horrible conversions (without mentioning how it lacks a proper additional joystick for fighters). Thankfully, PSX enthusiasts could always revert back to the...
You know Resident Evil 2.

Rain pouring down, cars driving at a frightful speed in spite of the slippery bridge…It's one of those days where all you can think about is to return home and take a nice nap while thunder and lightning lets loose around you. Your decision is already taken; you just don't feel like doing something else…
