Hello there! Welcome to a new series of mine where I take a good old gander at some classic games from my childhood. I'll say what I like, what I don't like, what you can do to beat the game, and how good the title is overall.

This is like a guide AND a review, so keep that in mind while reading. Hope you enjoy!

Also, since episode #1 of this series is one of the hardest goddamn games to exist on this side of the Earth, there will be profanity in this article.

Everywhere.

SO yeah, today's title is a Sega Genesis game by the name of Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. Released on November 26, 1993...

Now, there are a lot of things that make a game. However, what about those things that nobody likes, yet, no matter what, you see them EVERYWHERE! Yeah, you know, those things that every time you see them, you just lose all the fun that was once in the game. Well, today, I am going to talk about the Ten Things In Games I Hate. Now, remember that this is my list, so if there is a thing in games that you hate, but isn’t on this list, either I have no problems with it, or I find these problems worse. Now, with that said, lets start the list

I never did play Octodad, a game that was said to be unique, if frustrating in its own way. Neither did I play I Am Bread, also frustrating with it’s gameplay. I never understood the appeal of games that try to anger you unless there is a unique spin to it or something good. And I think waiting for that paid off, because today, we’ll be talking about one of the funniest written indie games I’ve played, Manual Samuel



Manual Samuel follows the tale of Samuel obviously, a trust fund baby who has never had to work a day in his life and has had everything practically handed to him. That...

Who doesn’t like Spyro? Well, maybe the people who aren’t familiar with him, but err… Well, everyone who knows the purple little dragon has a liking for him. He’s just…I dunno, likable. The younger crowd knows him from the pretty recent Skylanders series and perhaps the less recent The Legend of Spyro series. While the older coots (such as myself, mind you. I even got a cane! :D) know Spyro all too well from his first games by developer Insomniac Games on the Sony PlayStation. And that’s the game I’m going to talk about in this article!

I started up the game, watched the green...

Well, here we are. From one extremely short title to yet another extremely short title, we find ourselves with a game that is actually ten minutes shorter than 198X, and wouldn’t you know it, I enjoy it far more than that other game? Now why is that? Could it be that, despite the smaller budget and less resources, it could create a vastly more interesting story and world? The answer is yes. So let’s talk about Planet RIX-13



The game starts with a nameless, faceless astronaut as he crash lands on a strange planet. Apparently, there were people on the planet, but they are all gone now....

Man, the fighting game community is lame. They make fun of Super Smash Bros Melee all the time, all they care about is some guy from an old fighting game called Fatal Furry, and they never shut up about the Arks System. Why would anyone care? What is this dumb indie game? Divekick? Sounds like a dumb move. Where’s the true indie game title, Up+Smash? That’s all I care about!- Where am I going with this joke again?



Divekick, an indie title made by fighting game fans for fighting game fans. And people who buy weird indie games cause they have dumb internet web series. What a coincidence....

A lot of video game characters have a lot of occupations. Much like real life. However, there are those video game characters who really suck at their jobs. So, today, I am going to talk about the ten video game characters who are not very good at their jobs. Now, the rules are simple. Only one game per franchise. However, for one game in particular, I am excluding my play before put rule, just so I can put it here. Now, with all that said, lets start the list.

What remains of couch-multiplayer:
What remains of couch-multiplayer:
When I first started writing drafts for this article I was going to write about the next-gen consoles leaving out good ol' couch; but after mulling over it, I came to the conclusion that both online and couch multiplayer are equally in use, though they are separated by the console boundaries.

Recently I've noticed that a lot of FPS's seem to be online-multiplayer only and that there is no couch-multiplayer mode in these games. "What a pain" I thought to myself, 360 controller in hand, sat next to a Wii owner. Clearly we would not be playing this game together any time soon. My miserable-cynical-git...

Uhm….. I don’t have a PS3, so…… Here is a list of my favorite games from my favorite console. Rules, only games I play, and they have to be from the gamecube. That good? Okay. Let’s start the list.

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 2: Rogue Leader

#10: Star Wars Rogue Squadron 2: Rogue Leader - Now, there are a lot of Star Wars games. I mean, A LOT! Like, seriously, how is there so many games. But, one of my favorite ones is Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 2. This game has an amazing story, and it is really amazing with its flying controls. It’s a lot like Crimson Skies, a game that is in...

I realized the other day that I've finally read my last "Best 10 arcade games of all time" list. They're very limited, and they tend to have the same games, listed over and over. Usually I don't agree with the choices, either. The games that I've been most passionate about over the years are generally ones that don't make it onto such lists. So here, without further ado, is an off-the-cuff list of the Best Arcade Games Ever. These are the games that, had I room, I would purchase and rebuild for a home arcade, as I wouldn't get tired of playing any of them.

In the beginning, video...

Now that can't be right....
Now that can't be right....
Yes, it’s that that time again when I spend ridiculous amounts of money on a console and whinge about it. Having now played and owning all three next-gen consoles, I’ll be giving a fair sum-up at the end, as last time I had to take a stab in the dark at the PS3 experience. A guided stab in the dark, mind you, having heard much about it and the game library (crickets chirping) it has in store for players. Anyway, let’s get right into it....

I’ll skip the description of set-up and online-sign-up, as I’d be reiterating what I said about the 360 with the exception of it being free. No...

Some of may have heard of Ratchet and Clank..... some have not.These have always been one of personal favourites and the best(according to me)was Ratchet and Clank 2.

This game has always been a wonderful one no matter how many times I've played it.The graphics were pretty cool for it's time and the gameplay was nothing but excellent and kept me up for hours on end and finally the humor kept me laughing for hours(and it still does)

The storyline was not too exciting but was still good and kept me wondering, why and how did they make a vicious little fuzz ball? Gamers who seek a challenge won't...

Well, looks like a fun little holiday is right around the corner. That’s right, Day of the Dead. Halloween, that’s for children who go out and eat candy. But Day of the Dead, that’s a real man’s holiday. In all seriousness, I am far from being Mexican. I’m the whitest, pastiest motherfucker around. But I still really enjoy the skeleton designs and the history of Day of the Dead. And you know what else I love? Masked wrestling, which is more commonly known as lucha libre. Day of the Dead and luchadores. It’s not a Lucha Underground game, everyone. It’s Guacamelee. The full edition,...

Spider-Man Battle for New York was Released in November 2006. it is an Awesome Game for The Nintendo Ds & Gameboy Advance. it is kinda a Sequel to the Previous Game ultimate spider-man Which looks exactly Like Ultimate Spider-Man because it's in the Ulitmate Spider-Man unvierse. the plot for the Game is about norman Osborn as the Green Goblin looks like the same hulk-verison from Ultimate Spider-Man attacks the city and also tries to Kill Spider-man. You can play as Both Good and evil you Be as Spider-Man or you can also be the goblin so this game is pretty cool and it's proably one of...

Time to jump on the trend and make my own top 20. Now I've played a fair amount of games and it was pretty difficult to get a solid 20 down but I think I've got what I need.

Before we begin, just gonna give a little honourable mention to ICO and The Shadow of The Colossus who, unfortunately didn't make the list.

Now then, let's begin!

#20-Super Mario World
Starting off the list is a fanfavourite and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna killed for it being this low but who cares. This is a very enjoyable game, even if you're not a fan of Mario. There's no real story other Peach being kidnapped but who cares...

Oracle of Seasons, one of the most frustrating games in my memory but also one of my all-time favourites.

It occurred to me recently that modern gamers are.... wimps. I'm not excluding myself here.

Whenever a gamer is punished for failure, such as a lives system they moan, they whine and they throw their controllers and say "games shouldn't have these features". The fact is that we are spoilt. A lot of next-gen games give players cheap thrills, immediate fun with no long-term fun or big hills to climb over.

The lives systems and game over screens give a game violent ups and downs, but I believe in some cases the pros outweigh the cons and I'd hate something so marvellous as this to be wiped from...
