Started Quarantine, because of its suitable title, and it's not what I expected at all. It was made 5 years before Crazy Taxi, and it's developed by a company that later turned into Rockstar Games. I'm surprised how obscure it is considering that's the case. Was the Crazy Taxi style gameplay ever utilized before 1994?

Most of rockstars output pre-gta is pretty obscure, especially outside of Europe where the Amiga wasn’t so popular. That’s true even if the uk branch which was previously known as DMA design.

Lemmings is probably the most well known of the games, but very few people seem to know that they are the company who made it. Shadow of the Beast probably after that.

I’d never heard of imagexcel though, so obviously the Canadian branch has an even more obscure back catalogue

Started 007 blood stone on the xbox 360, fun james bond game, nothing revolutionary, but it is an original bond story that gets the fundamentals right.

...I'm working on wrapping up Hollow Knight but the Trial of the Fool is just tough. I also have Streets of Rage 4 in rotation and have finally made it back to the AC series and started Assassin's Creed III today. I'm going to try to get through the main games to get caught up before Valhalla launches this holiday.

I really enjoyed AC 3, it has a pretty bad reputation but I think its a solid game

A few weeks ago I tried Ancient Stone Tablets, but I must have screwed up the .msu file or something because it didn't carry over. I was too frustrated to repeat the first week again. I've decided to try it again today, and I used a version from a website that makes it automatically save. It once again didn't save... Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I'm at the point where I might just play the master quest version without the broadcast mode.

Currently I am juggling Castlevania: Bloodlines, and Thunderforce IV. On a bit of a Genesis kick. I am really, really loving Castlevania.

I'm playing a bit of Mario Galaxy for the first time since '08. The game looks gorgeous with component cables. It's not as sharp as the Wii U Mario games but it's not that far off.

The controls still suck though. I've never been all that comfortable navigating the planets in Galaxy.

Started diablo 3 on the ps3 a week ago, up to level 61 wizard about to finish Act 4. enjoying it more than diablo 2, only other i've played. I much rather use a controller than mouse and keyboard.
