We here at 30plugamer are sad to announce that the rumors of Ralph H. Baer passing have been confirmed on various sites and through news sources. Mr. Baer fled to America from Germany in the 1930’s and later went on to be one of the founding pioneers in the video game industry. He invented the […]
The Halo: Master Chief Collection came out last month and took Halo fans by storm. It includes updated versions of Halo 1-4 as well as multiplayer gameplay. For die hard Halo fans it’s a really nice collection, and for those that haven’t had a chance to experience the games it’s a good way to get […]
Star Wars, Atari (1983) Vector graphics. Not often I get to look back far enough and see a game that utilised this kind of display. Battle Zone, Gravitar, Asteroids and Lunar Lander spring to mind as games that used Vector graphics while others used Raster Display to showcase their games. It had its time and […]
Space Gun, Taito (1990) Light Gun time again as we venture to planets unknown in search of the mystic plot device as to why people have gone bye-byes and odd creatures are in their place making life miserable for all and sundry. Yep it’s the age old alien space monster plot of Distant-Planet-Lost-Contact-With-Space-Ship-Go-There-To-Find-Aliens-Kill-All-And-Run motiff. Or […]
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 […]

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 […]
