Games Beaten 2015

1. New Super Mario Bros. 2 - 3DS
2. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker - Wii U
3. God of War - PS2
4. Gunman Clive - 3DS
5. Dead Space 3: Awakened (DLC) - PC


Total Games for 2015: 5

Gunman Clive - 3DS
What a great little package. It feels a lot like Megaman, which is always a good thing. On your first playthrough, on normal, you can finish the game in about an 45-60 minutes, but the whole time is utterly enjoyable. You then unlocked a third character (one which can not shoot), you then play it through again on Hard, then with the character which can't shoot and you have about 3 hours into the game, all of which is enjoyable. You then realise each section scores if you took a hit or not, another challenge to get some time out of the game.

Yes it is short, but it is really gold and only cost a couple bucks, if you have a 3DS, get it!

Dead Space 3: Awakened (DLC) - PC
The DLC to Dead Space 3 only lasts about an hour, but it is a better experience than the main game was. Much more focused on dark halls and atmosphere it plays and feels much more like Dead Space 2, which is a great thing. Other than it being short, it was a great and leads into what will be Dead Space 4 someday (or an ending to the series).

1. The Last of Us - PS3 - January 16
2. Lollipop Chainsaw - PS3 - January 19
3. Dragon's Crown - PS3 - January 23

4. Charlie Murder - 360 - February 2

Played this online with a childhood friend in Washington. A lotta beat 'em up, a little Guitar Hero, and a little shmupping make this one a fun little brawler.

Jackie Chan's Action Kung-Fu. Fun little platformer. A little short, and I'm pretty sure it's one I could get through without any sort of save states, but I was lazy last night. ;)

Also, there's a TG-16 version, apparently with extended stages, but it also makes some other changes that make it not the definitive version, at least according to HG101.

That game is rad, and much, much easier than the games you have been playing. I could beat it as a child; so, I don't think it will give you too much difficulty. (You will have a lot of fun with it, however, since it is, IMO, one of the best NES games.)

Yeah, I can't disagree. The controls are really snappy, hit detection is quite good, and so on. It just feels right, and let me tell you, that can go a long way in an NES game even if other aspects are less stellar. Not that that's the case here! But a little polish goes a long way.

I have a fondness for Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu because it's one of the few games I remember playing before it was released when I was at the Nintendo World Championships. It was also how I first learned about Jackie Chan.

1. Fatal Fury (GEN)
2. DuckTales Remastered (WiiU)
3. Final Fantasy IV (PSP)

4. Journey (PS3)


I've been sitting on this game for several months, knowing that it is a short game but that it was highly regarded. I played through in two sittings separated by a couple of days. In between the two sittings I frequently thought about when I would be able to get back to it. It is gripping.

This is likely the most beautiful game I've played. Everything seems to have been crafted with extreme care so that every visual and sound supports the emotional impact that the creators intended. This game effectively evokes more emotions than all but the best movies that have been created and it lasts about the same length of time. That being said, this wouldn't have been as effective if it were just a movie. The connection as player was key to the impact. There were moments - especially as I approached the ending - where I found myself pushing the analogue stick forward harder than necessary in response to the on-screen struggle.

I could type an essay on this game, and after finishing it I did some poking around and see that others have. It inspires reflection and deep consideration of its meaning. If you are a gamer who can appreciate that games are an art form you must experience Journey.
