Grand Theft Auto Series

GTA has been an interesting series that I’ve had a love/hate relationship with for many years. For many, when they say GTA, they’re referring to GTA3, 4, or possibly something along the line of San Andreas or Vice City. To avoid any confusion, I’m looking at the series as a whole and dishing out what I think, for better or worse.

The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 14

So this time I figured I’d do something a little different. It’s summer time and that means massive Steam sales ahoy! Of course, I really haven’t gotten that much as I’ve been pretty strapped this summer, but it does mean that I’ve gotten at least SOMETHING, although some of that something isn’t that great. So today, I’m providing these in order of worst to best.

Top 5 GTA Clones

When people say GTA clone, it gets tired and old. Calling something a clone of something else makes you seem incredibly lazy as it’s merely a way of waving off any sort of merit the game might have otherwise that either sets it apart or makes it 10 times stronger than GTA3 (the one they’re usually referencing) and somehow allows them to dismiss the game entirely.

The sad fact is these same people would be missing out on otherwise incredible titles that, GTA or not, warrant your undivided attention. Titles such as…

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things – Episode 10

Been a while since I’d done one of these, so I figured I’d take another crack at it. There’s no real relation between these and while there are spoilers, I don’t think it’s anything we haven’t seen already as the gamer populace, so no worries there. Ultimately, these are things that make you laugh, smile, or in general just plain enjoy when a design studio comes together to create something wonderful.

The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 8

Ayup, another random collection of stuff. For this roundup we have a wannabe that actually works quite well, a puzzle game that references new gen puzzles, two unfortunate titles, and two kickass titles that I’m truly surprised I didn’t mention as early as the original Steam Roundup. Could’ve been that I wanted to give them full page reviews, but ehh. Let’s go!

The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 3

So these are five titles I consider to be the worst of what I’ve played on Steam. Keep in mind that there are still a bunch of titles I haven’t even installed yet, often because I’ll play one title in the series, go “ehh,” then not bother installing the rest of the series that came with that pack…need to stop doing that. Anyway! Here goes…

Sleeping Dogs

General Overview

Imagine if you had a game that combined elements of Saints Row, True Crime, Batman Arkham Asylum, Max Payne, and Assassin’s Creed. Imagine if that same game was a sprawling action RPG hybrid being fronted by Square Enix. Sounds too good to be true, right? Strangely enough, Sleeping Dogs seems to combine all of these elements and more and with a few understandable bugs, but all the same manages to pull it off.

FPS of the Year – 1992

So yeah, I decided to talk about 1992 after all. 1992 is a year you should familiarize yourself with when it comes to gaming. Sure, there were a lot of cool things going on in the console world, but the PC gaming market was especially interesting. I already briefly went over Terminator 2029 and Gun Buster, so let’s go over what ELSE came out this year.

The Fantastic World of Japanese Games – Episode 5

Sometimes the mere mentioning that a game had RPG elements was enough to shelf the idea to bring it over. You’re going to see me pulling this excuse a lot because for every Mega Man, Castlevania, TMNT, Mario, Zelda, and whatever title that came out, you’d have a dozen or so RPGs that didn’t quite make it. While this happened less with the SNES, it certainly happened a LOT with the NES. For example…

The Fantastic World Of Japanese Games – Episode 4

Sometimes a game is deemed “too weird” to come to American soil. This doesn’t happen all the time and usually when it does, it’s for good reason. I mean, I guess so. I’ve decided to include youtube embeds on all the game pictures this time. Aren’t I such a nice guy?! All three of the games highlighted here definitely have their quirks, but should still definitely have come to America. Sadly, all three are RPGs as well, so that may have something to do with it. Anyway!
