Interview with Barry Collins, Developer of Ashen Rift
Shinobi, Sega (1987) In what has become a slightly less iconic character for Sega these days, Shinobi was, at the time, a popular arcade platformer with the lovely little ability to play with multiple levels within an area while getting to relive the fantasy days when ninjas were cool and mysterious little things that children […]
Thanksgiving is a day to eat too much, spend time with love ones, and give “thanks”. Well the gaming world has given us many things to be thankful for. Here are a few of the things that the team of 30plusgamer are thankful for in the gaming world. Megan E. Pearson 1. Great Voice Acting: […]
Rival Schools, Capcom (1997) It’s not often I get to see Capcom make a 3D fighter back in the 90s, though given their experience in Street Fighter Ex Plus Alpha Beta Gamma Mini Driver Edition Mk 3 Upper Super Combo 2… (Think I lost the plot on that one), I was pleasantly surprised with the […]
I’m waiting around a corner as my partner hacks through the building’s cameras, tagging enemies for my HUD. We’ve been at this building for less than a few minutes, and we’ve already had to take out 3 guards. “Okay, you want to go right into that corridor, but there’s no cameras inside, so I can’t […]
Ray Force, Taito (1994) It’s always nice when someone takes the vertical scrolling shoot-em-up in space idea and brings a new twist to it. Or brings an old twist to it in a fresh and invigorating way. Take Xevious for example, a scrolling spaceship shooter that allowed you to bomb targets upon the ground below […]
R-Type, Irem (1987) R-Type was released in arcades back in July 1987, and eventually ported to almost every possible platform imaginable ranging from the ZX Spectrum up to modern day remakes on the Xbox Live Arcade delivery platform, R-Type was a different model of game compared to the 1985 release of Gradius (another side scrolling […]
Assassin’s Creed: Unity marks the franchises highly anticipated jump onto the next generation of gaming hardware. While I am pleased to say that developer Ubisoft Montreal succeeds in bringing a solid entry into the Assassin’s Creed franchise, I am also a bit disappointed with a few key aspects of the game (including persistent bugs) that […]
During the 90s, Sonic the Hedgehog was one of the most popular video game series and in 1991 Sega came out with the first of these fun platformers for their Sega Genesis console. In the years following they created three main sequels on the Genesis that improved upon the winning formula designed to give Mario a run […]

In 2005 the release of the Xbox 360 saw the addition of achievements to the console experience. Not long after Sony followed this up with trophies and even Steam added achievements to their arsenal. While versions of achievements had existed in individual games (skill points in Ratchet and Clank), but Microsoft pushed it to being […]
Gamers around the world lost a very important part of a game this week, as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has been updated. Part of its music has been taken away due to the, unfortunately necessary, copyright system. It’s something that has divided the opinions of the open-world, criminal simulator’s community, as many claim it’s […]
Quiz & Dragons, Capcom (1994) Combine the awesome power of nerds, geeks and swots together to form the ultimate fusion of Dungeons and Dragons with a quiz game. Take your dice rolling board game and instead of determining fights and such with the rolling of more dice (perhaps of the 20 sided variety) you have […]
Well, it happened again. I’ve gone and reinstalled Mass Effect. Notwithstanding a game backlog long enough to last me all the way through the divorce proceedings if I were to play it all back to back. Despite that backlog being filled with quality titles such as Batman: Arkham Origins, Skyrim, Fallout: New Vegas, Call of […]
Quartet 2, Sega (1986) For an old game there’s a little bit of charm still left in this one. Quartet 2, in which we adopt the Gauntlet model of gaming and having several colour coded players running around the levels but instead we drop it to a 2D platformer, throw in some guns and weapons, […]
