Gaming’s Undervalued Treasures: The Warriors

Gaming’s Undervalued Treasures: The Warriors

The Warriors is a rare case; a legitimately great movie-based video game The Warriors is a one-of-a-kind game; it manages to use its movie license in a creative way, while still being a great game by itself. Adapted from of the 70s flick of the same name, The Warriors is a solid beat ‘em up that manages to cram other sub genres without feeling  spread thin. The game was developed and published by Rockstar and released during the holidays of 2005. It received a decent marketing push and positive reviews…

Game of the Year 2016 | Deanna’s Picks

Game of the Year 2016 | Deanna’s Picks

I’m going to start out being completely honest. I did not play many games that came out this year, but I do have a clear pick for game of the year. Things like Stardew Valley and Dark Souls III didn’t catch my interest enough to continue past the first little while. I bought games that turned out to be complete flops, but for some ungodly reason I still enjoy. There are games that I had never even heard of that I ended up loving. Though I say I didn’t play many games this year, I can certainly fill out a list of five (well, four plus one update) that I enjoyed more than others, and I daresay I thought were better.

It was published by EA, who did not know how to market the game’s unique…

My Final Fantasy Wish List

My Final Fantasy Wish List

There aren’t many game series that have managed to not only survive, but thrive as long and as well as Final Fantasy. Final Fantasy has practically become synonymous with the JRPG genre and in many ways, is its mascot. That doesn’t necessarily mean that Final Fantasy is without sin, though. I find it hard to call myself a longtime Final Fantasy fan in light of just how long it’s been around, even in the States (1990) but I have been a fan of Final Fantasy for just over a decade…

Gaming’s Undervalued Treasures: Forgotten Worlds

Gaming’s Undervalued Treasures: Forgotten Worlds

Forgotten Worlds is one of Capcom’s “forgotten” arcade classics Forgotten Worlds is one of the many twin-stick shooters that flooded the arcades in the 80s. Instead of being an elite commando fighting a vaguely evil army, players were an unnamed mercenary with a jetpack fighting gruesome aliens after they conquered Earth. Forgotten Worlds also manages to throw in some minor-RPG elements, making it more unique than other shooters at the time. The game was released in arcades in 1989 and is the third and final in Capcom’s unofficial “Jet-Pack Hero trilogy.”…
