Playing Oblivion After Skyrim, Part II: Where I Eat My Words
Who the heck IS 30plusgamer anyway?
30Plusgamer.com is an independent video game website devoted to the surprisingly HUGE segment of the video gamers out there that are over the age of 30. Did you know that the average age of the most frequent video game buyer is 35? I didn't think so - it's a huge group that NEEDS it's own voice! We're working hard every day to be that voice! 30Plusgamer.com has been providing resources for advanced video gamers with original, groundbreaking video game content since January 2012.
Elevator Action, Taito, (1983) Let’s go back, way back to the time before graphics were considered important. Not quite to the time when text was all we saw and the graphics were powered by our imaginations! Incidentally my realisation of Zork was far more colourful than most people’s and had far more naked people in […]
E-Swat – Cyber Police, SEGA (1989) Sometimes it becomes clear that a game like E-Swat – Cyber Police is using another game engine. What we basically have here is Shinobi or Rolling Thunder (likely Shinobi if it’s SEGA) but with cops and robots riding the success of Robocop in the cinemas. While OCEAN may have […]
Adventure games have returned in force. The 2000s put the genre on the shelf, leaving titles like The Secret of Monkey Island, Full Throttle, and Sam & Max behind to fester in Top XX Games of All Time lists while gaming went through its awkward World War II phase. Fortunately for all gamers, the past […]
Dragon Gun, Data East (1992/3) It’s an interesting idea, but given the fact that Dungeons and Dragons, Dungeon Magic and a whole other glut of “Dragon” based games came out around this time, it was only a matter of eventuality that someone did this in a board meeting. “How about… a gun game… wait for […]
I have a lot of money invested in my gaming addiction. I’m sure you do too. It’s not a cheap hobby to get into. Current generation consoles go for upwards of $600, and new games release regularly for $60. Older consoles and games are a far less expensive option, where going back to buying an […]
Dungeon Magic (aka Light Bringer), Taito (1993) Basic Premise, take four archetypes from the Dungeons and Dragons gaming series, Warrior, Monk/Thief, Elf/Archer and Wizard/OldGuy, give them all a back-story that is drawn out over four levels and have them save the world from a demon that you know is going to wake up just before […]
Resident Evil really needs no introduction. It’s a survival horror franchise from Capcom that features some of most memorable characters in video game history: Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, Leon S. Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Sherry Birkin, etc. To many fans, it started out great with Resident Evil 1, 2, 3, 0, and Code: Veronica, what […]
When you consider how over saturated the games market is with World War Two, it is surprising just how under represented the First World War is, with almost no developers choosing it for their setting. Ever since I studied World War One in history class I have been struck by how it would be an […]
Die Hard Arcade, SEGA (1996) Normally, one associates a game based on a film to be utter dross. A steaming pile of Atari E.T. Or worse. I could look back over a lot of Movie to Game adaptations and wonder aloud the immortal phrase “What the hell were they thinking?” while recanting various hashes and […]
Tomodachi Life isn’t what you would call a conventional game. There are no objectives to complete, no strict guidelines of how to play and there is no end to it. This is what makes Tomodachi Life such a rewarding and laid back gaming experience. You choose how often you visit your island full of Mii […]
Contra, Konami (1987) Some will argue this is one of the hardest games out there in the “Run and Gun” category of gaming. I however, feel that the follow up game to this one is FAR harder but that’s for a later review, possibly. That being said, it is still a very tough game and […]
Hello Nintendo gamers, it’s Thursday once again. This week, the House of Mario has a list of these Nintendo classics for the Wii U and 3DS eShops, including a classic street fighting sequel. Here they are: Wii U eShop GAIABREAKER (Ubiquitous Entertainment, $14.99) XType Plus (PhobosLab, $2.99 / $2.99 CAD) Soon Shine (Dahku Creations, $1.99) […]
Captain America and the Avengers, Data East (1991) As far as the realisation of comic books into video games goes, there’s far worse ones than this. Captain American and the Avengers is a healthy mix of the more colourful years of comic books before they became darker and more gritty and suffered a series of […]
