Area 51 is apparently based on another Midway game of the same name. Midway made arcade games, and Area 51 the arcade game, is something I put more than a few pound coins into as a teenager. It was a shooting game with an actual gun, and quite a good one if I remember rightly. This was at the hight of the Time Crisis, Point Blank and House of the Dead popularity.
The only thing you really need to know about vanilla ice cream is that it’s good enough to eat. Beyond that there’s nothing much to say unless you can compare it to other vanilla ice creams. Unfortunately I can’t do that with Pilotwings Resort. I will say without a doubt that it is the best island resort based flying mini game game I’ve ever played.
My apologies for dragging you over here at this time of night, but this won’t wait. In a nutshell, in the last 12 months, I’ve been through six different internet […]
I’m mainly going to talk about games that I like.
I laughed, I swore, I threw the controller, what more can you ask for from a game?
It’s more of that podcast that I do where we talk about gaming news.
Here’s the latest episode of our gaming news podcast, Simply Syndicated Gaming News.
This is a great metroidvania style game that pulled me in right away. It’s big and time consuming in all the best ways.
Syberia is the first graphical adventure I’ve played since KGB on the Amiga, and it feels good to get back to it.
In no way am I complaining. Quite the opposite, it’s brilliant that we have this many games to choose from. It’s not like they’re all the same game, there’s variation in there and it’s great.
Just in case you didn’t know, I do a podcast that covers gaming news. It’s brilliant and you should listen to it. Here’s the latest episode.Mike isn’t with us this week. We were a mess. We were still really really good.Just in case you didn’t know, I do a podcast that covers gaming news. It’s brilliant and you should listen to it. Here’s the latest episode.
I thought I’d show you this game I’ve been playing. It’s pretty good. I’ll do more of these.
There’s a lot going around the internet about people finding a reference to new Switch hardware in the latest operating system update. Is there going to be a new version of the Switch? Yeah, probably, why not? If they did, it certainly wouldn’t be the first Nintendo platform to get a system revision. How many versions of the Gameboy were there?
In this episode I’m joined by Tristan Ofield, one of the very early podcasters, and host of What’s in the Box.
Nintendo are doing well here, and so are the independent game developers. There’s nothing in this that isn’t brilliant.
The whole shrine experience is really really bad. It’s easy to get lost, and there’s usually no logic to the layout of the caves. I would go so far as to say that the shrine exploring has ruined this game for me. Sadly it’s not the only problem.
