These Streets Be Full Of Rage… 3

Streets-of-Rage-3

Finally got around to making new Mellow Gaming videos. One day I’ll make a new Retro-Perspective. Anyway, this time Myself and Paul decided to play some Streets of Rage 3… after I had to purchase the Streets of Rage collection from Xbox live because Streets of Rage 2 would only start up as a trial. Despite me having achievements for it. And having redownloaded it. And being online. Yay for online DRM requirements eh? Anyway, click the link below to watch the various parts as I get around to uploading them!

My rage has never been so unbridled.

Games Review No.5: The Walking Dead

Walking-Dead-1

Available on: Xbox 360, PS3, PC, OSX, iOS
Version reviewed: Xbox 360

It’s been nearly a month since my last post on The Games Dump. This is because of laziness. Nothing else, just being lazy. Won’t be such a long wait for the next review, maybe 2 reviews though. I’ve become quite the fan of The Walking Dead over the years. I dabbled with the Robert Kirkman scribed comic briefly but never got around to buying the collected issues, really should do that. Mostly I’m a fan of the TV series though. Either way, I’m a fan. Just not as hardcore as some are. As such, when it was announced that Telltale games would be developing an adventure game based on the comic books I was pretty interested in seeing what they would do. But at the same time I was apprehensive of their ability to produce a game good enough for me to get past the technical failings a lot of their adventure games have. Does The Walking Dead manage to prove that good writing can hold a game up alone? Click the link to find out.

Why is no-one in The Walking Dead universe aware of the zombie mythos?


So I Thought I’d Play A Little Ikaruga Tonight

Ikaruga was a game me and my mate Paul used to dominate on the Gamecube. Well when I say dominate I mean we could play it to a standard where we didn’t feel like we were awful at it. Obviously when it was released on the Xbox Live Arcade I had to download it. Tonight I thought I’d give it a try for the first time in years. It seems that, much like Susan Sarandon, my skill has faded with time. Click the link to see a quite short video…

This game sure was polarising!!! HO HO HO!!!
