Dynasty Warriors 9 (PS4) Review

Dynasty Warriors 9

I’ve been a fan of Dynasty Warriors since the fifth entry, which sounds like I got in late, but then when you factor in how many not just core games, but spin-off titles I’ve played since then, then I’ve played A LOT of them. That’s why Dynasty Warriors 9 intrigued me so much, it was trying something new! New in a Warriors game! Is this change good though, or is it Dynasty Warriors 6 all over again? Let’s fine out!

Dragon Ball FighterZ (PS4) Review

DRAGON BALL FighterZ

Back when I launched this blog I went back and forth whether to do a “Wrestling Game Rundown” or one based on Dragon Ball games, with the latter appealing due to have comparatively few there are, but in the end I went with the childhood favourite. So here we are in 2018 and my first review of the year is also, at last, the first Dragon Ball game reviewed on the site! A dream team of Dragon Ball and Arc System Works, Dragon Ball FighterZ is eye-wateringly beautiful, but maybe not as perfect as we’d all hoped. Let’s take a deeper look!

My Top 10 Games of 2017

Top 10 Games

What’s this?! Me actually putting an article on the Game Reviews blog?! Crazy, I know! Seriously, I wish I had more time for this side of my life, but hey-ho. That doesn’t mean I can’t write a Top 10 though! … and what a weird Top 10 it is, due to being unemployed for a good portion of the middle of the year, I missed out on some key games like Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon: Zero Dawn, and while I hope to play both during the middle-of-the-year lull next year, it’s too late for this list… So let’s have a look at what’s left!

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (PS1) Review

Resi3

Capping off the original trilogy of Resident Evil games on the PS1 (and continuing Resident Evil Week from yesterday’s look at the second CG film) we have Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. While this still uses the same engine as the previous 2 entries, they have at least finally addressed some of the issues that have been plaguing the games and delivered a nice slice of continuity by setting the game in and around the other two entries in the series. Let’s take a closer look!

Resident Evil 2 (PS1) Review

Resi2

After yesterday’s look at the first CG film that starred Leon and Claire, it’s time to pop back over to the games that started it all and look at Resident Evil 2, the game that gave us the same duo in the first place. While it still suffers from a lot of the same problems that playing the first game in 2017 did, it does have some additions and little tweaks to talk about… so let’s get to it!

Resident Evil (PS1) Review

Resi1

Kicking off Resident Evil week across my two blogs, we have, rather fittingly, the game that started it all in the first place. Slow tank controls, blurry / pixelated graphics and so-bad-it’s-funny voice acting, it’s safe to say this hasn’t aged well… especially when a superior remake exists! Oh well, let’s take a good look anyway…

Grand Theft Auto (PS1)

gta1

With long game series’ like GTA (Resident Evil, Metal Gear and Dragon Ball games are the other three that spring to mind) I will be starting at the earliest entry in the series I played (in most cases it’s the first one) and moving up in order, but not every other review like the wrestling game countdown. With that out the way, let’s get started on the original GTA for the PS1! (NOTE: I was unable to find a working ROM, or ISO, of this game for screenshot purposes, so I’ve had to borrow some from GameFAQs. I hope to grab my own screens in the future, be it with a working ISO or via some sort of screen capture software, if I ever make it to that kind of professionalism!)
