Zerowing, Toaplan (1989) All your base are belong to us, Gentlemen make your time and a whole host of other such bad translations are what plagued the Megadrive/genesis version of this game, but now we have just the arcade version which features solely the gameplay and no shoehorned plots and cut scenes that the console […]
Zero Point, Unico (1998) Everything about this game seems to scream “We’re not quite Point Blank”, a wonderful gun game by Namco I might add that was released 4 years earlier. It screams of plagiarism and ripping off another product and like a lot of instances of this, doesn’t quite measure up to the original […]
2014 was filled with a lot of wonderful games. The newer systems finally got up and running, but PS3 and Xbox 360 weren’t forgotten in the process. Throughout the year gamers have gotten to experience a lot of great games, and here are the favorite games of the 30plusgamer’s team. Megan E. Pearson Halo Master Chief Collection: While […]
Youjyuden, Irem (1986) In what initially appears to be a rip-off from games like Ikari Warriors and Commando, Irem give us this hidden little gem, Youjyuden. Taking the idea that the Gods and Demons have run amok and one man decides to stand up, slap on a helmet, occasionally grow wings, and goes into battle […]
Yie Ar Kung-Fu, Konami (1985) There’s always been something about the Mystic East that has driven people to make films about sorcerers, dragons, magicians, martial artists with inane abilities like flying, floating and being able to leap huge distances. Yie Ar Kung-Fu tries to take that kind of approach to the martial art genre in […]
Yam! Yam!?, Dooyong (1990) It’s hard to know where to start when you’re faced with a game that has so little exposure and at the same time, so little understanding of what the history behind the game is and what on earth has small furry bear like things got to do with this particular genre […]
The PC community for Dark Souls 1 and 2 had a mini-heart attack during this past week, as the popular (if not completely mandatory) DSFix patch was taken down, momentarily, by a DMCA claim made by Namco/Bandai. While the company did not intend for this community-made patch to be taken down, the fans felt insulted […]
Xybots, Atari Games (1987) Take 2 players, drop them into a maze filled with increasingly more difficult layouts and monsters/robots and make it part Third Person Shooter and you’ve effectively got yourself Xybots. In taking from possibly the idea of Gauntlet but giving us an “in maze” view rather than the typical top-down view, Xybots […]
2014 was a great year for games but 2015 looks like it promises to be just as good, if not better. The Xbox One, Wii U, and PS4, have found their footing and PC gaming is doing wonderful things. So to kick off this year here are the games we are most looking forward to. […]
Funk of Titans is a new progressive side scroller for Xbox Live. It’s quirky and more than a little silly. There is fun to be had though in this side scrolling game. Story There isn’t much story to speak of with Funk of Titans. It’s combines Greek Mythology with modern music themes. You play as a […]

Xenophobe, Midway (1987) I imagine a meeting at Midway’s office… “Yes, let’s ride the success of Aliens (the film) the idea of huge monsters that kill humans very easily and very rapidly running around space stations and planets, nomming down people like candy and causing something to burst from their chests in that odd […]
