PSN Essentials: Future Cop L.A.P.D.

BGYNP-FutureCopLAPDFeature

With news that Sony would be re-releasing it to the PSN, I thought it a perfect time to look back at one of my favorite PSOne titles, Future Cop L.A.P.D., and share with the world how awesome this old game was. Generally I’m known for being a huge advocate of strong video game narratives. I’ve … Continue reading

The Best Games You’ve Never Played – Insanely Twisted: Shadow Planet

BGYNP-InsanelyTwistedShadowPlanet

I bought Insanely Twisted: Shadow Planet last year. Not when it came out and not soon after—we’re talking December and almost completely on a whim; I had spare points and remembered it from one of Inside Xbox’s Arcade previews as “the game they *aren’t* shoving down my throat this week” and “the one that has style … Continue reading

Best Games You’ve Never Played: Why “Rochard” Is a Downloadable Game You Need to Try

Rochard Feature

“Rock is hard. John Rochard is harder.” This may sound like the movie byline of a sexually charged 70’s blaxploitation film, but trust me when I say it’s way more awesome. Developed by Recoil Games, Rochard–named after the game’s protagonist (and is pronounced “ROW-shard” or the equally acceptable “Rock-Hard!”)–is a downloadable, side-scrolling game that is … Continue reading

My Unhealthy Obsession With Final Fantasy Tactics

Final Fantasy Tactics Feature

(Note: Thanks to the Final Fantasy Tactics wikia and to the Final Fantasy Tactics Screen Shots page for pictures!) It started sometime in the early 2000’s. While everyone else had a PS2 or a Dreamcast, I was just getting a PSOne. I was late to the console race, having only ever owned an NES and … Continue reading

Where Are The Fighting Game Franchises I Love?

5 Franchises

With the Fighting Game genre having reached a new renaissance of evolved gameplay, and the successful revival of fan-favorite franchises in recent years (with the arrival of Street Fighter IV, Mortal Kombat, Marvel Vs Capcom 3) I’ve expected this trend to continue and give us more long-lived franchises or long-lost cult faves to sate our … Continue reading

Infinite Ammo Presents “Ender Quest: Trine”

Trine - PSN Essentials

============================================ Infinite Dictionary: Ender Quest (En-DURR kwest): A gamer’s unrelenting quest to finally complete a game, whether for the story or for Trophies and Achievements (or both). ============================================ Trine 2 just came out: with it came fond memories of the action/side-scrolling platformer that started the franchise, Trine. I started Trine half a year ago: having … Continue reading

A Gamer’s Holiday – Christmas NiGHTS

GH-ChristmasNiGHTS

There are three ways to do every holiday. There’s the right way: buy a ham, cook it with the family, sing some Christmas carols. There’s the wrong way: bring a Christmas tree to your Jewish girlfriend’s holiday party. Perhaps, drop your White Russian and your anticipatory, “I’m going to propose to your daughter now” cigar on … Continue reading

The Best Games You’ve Never Played – “Evil Zone”

Best Games You've Never Played - Evil Zone

(All of the following pictures are provided by Evil Zone‘s fanpop site). Take some character archetypes from every anime you’ve ever seen, throw them together in the story of an interdimensional battle to stop an evil sorceress, and give us a weird, unusual control scheme while you’re at it. Evil Zone had MADE IN JAPAN … Continue reading

The Best Games You’ve Never Played – “Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy”

Best Games You've Never Played - Psi-Ops

If any game ever needed a sequel, this is the one. Arguably one of Midway’s best games, Psi-Ops: the Mindgate Conspiracy was the story of Nick Scryer, a psi-operative trying to uncover a secret plot to destroy the world while uncovering his memories at the same time. With gameplay based on various psychic powers and … Continue reading

The Best Games You’ve Never Played– “Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner”

BGYNP - ZOE 2

I can’t lie. I didn’t play the first Zone of the Enders. Hadn’t even heard of it until I picked up the sequel. But from what I know, you don’t really need to play it, because the 2nd Runner has everything you’d ever want from an awesome anime/mech-influenced game. Ever wonder how’d it be to … Continue reading
