Ninja Baseball Bat Man, Irem (1993) I’ve never been one for baseball, personally speaking. I do know it’s big in the ‘States and possibly as big in Japan, but it’s not really hit the mainstream here in the UK. Having played some baseball games, I’m fairly certain I know enough of the rules to be […]
Styx: Master of Shadows is a tale of a crotchety goblin who uses his sneak skills to steal, kill, and exploit. The only thing Styx doesn’t do with his skill set is keep the player engaged from start to finish.
Night Slashers, Data East (1993) Data East has a history of hit and miss gaming. This one is more of a “skewed off to the side” kind of game. In the same vein as Final Fight, Mutation Nation, Violent Storm and other such brawlers, Night Slashers takes a sort of Van Helsing approach to gaming […]
Futuridium is a game that brings back many fond memories growing up. Reminiscent of old school space shooters with the look and feel of Star Fox for the Super Nintendo, I was instantly attracted to Futuridium. Don’t be fooled by the retro styled graphics, though. This is a game geared towards the hardcore and gave […]
The NewZealand Story, Taito (1988) Once again I only WISH that I was on drugs at the time of writing this, or at least the offices of the planning department of Taito when they came up with the story and idea behind this game. I can imagine it along the lines of them looking out […]

Mutant Fighter, Data East (1992) In some fighting games you get the opportunity to take someone on, one on one in a 2D arena while in other fighting games they get you to play in a sort of wrestling arena where you can move into the background and sometimes have an actual jump button, while […]

We beat the most anticipated survival horror title of the year. Now it’s time to face our fears with a little bit of slapstick. Here’s a couple of the funnier pictures we caught in part 1 of 30PlusGamer’s The Evil Within Fun Run.
What is a trophy? According to Webster’s dictionary, trophies are defined in full as something gained or given in victory or conquest, especially when preserved or mounted as a memorial. Unless you count all of the gold stars and happy faces affixed to some of my spelling tests, I was never fortunate enough to excel […]
Metamorphic Force, Konami, (1993) Take the idea of Captain Planet and have it saved by a bunch of furries and you’ve got Metamorphic Force in a nutshell. The idea is that nature is annoyed, someone turned up to rule the planet and what we have as our saviour group is a bunch of people that […]
Make-believe criminals rejoiced, as Lionsgate and Overkill Software have announced a rather unique partnership. In order to promote Keanu “Whoa” Reeves’ new movie “John Wick”, as well as promote Payday 2 to an even larger public, they are crossing over the two franchises in a new, free DLC pack. The deal, which was struck long […]
Lucky and Wild, Namco (1993) It’s not quite on the rails shooter fun, it’s not quite off the rails shooter fun, but the sheer idea alone of being able to drive down the street using a sit-down racer and then slap two extra guns into the dashboard, makes for a lot of fun assuming one […]
Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Capcom (1996) Capcom have a very interesting approach to their cross-over ideas. Take a popular game series, take another popular comic series/publisher and slap both of them into a series of fights designed to make fan boys and girls the world over try to prove ultimately which character is […]
