Random Game Wednesdays: Golf Story (Nintendo Switch)

Golf Story is a game that I always meant to write a full review of. Unfortunately, despite it’s very strong start, I ended up falling off pretty hard. But, the random number generator seems to want me to talk about it, so here we are. Don’t take this as a full review, I have not finished the game, but here are my thoughts so far. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Grabbed By The Ghoulies (Rare Replay)

When Grabbed by the Ghoulies first released it was not very well liked, and it’s pretty easy to see why. This was the first game that Rare put out on a Microsoft console after being bought by the company, so immediately there were some angry Nintendo fans that didn’t want anything to do with it. Add on the fact that unlike the last several Rare games, this was a pretty small and basic game but was still full price, and you get a recipe for disappointment. However, looking at it now, the game does have some things that make it worth checking out.  Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Atari Video Cube (Atari Flashback Classics Vol. 2)

The second Atari Flashback Classics collection must be full of games that I’ve never heard of before. Just like Gravitar, Atari Video Cube is a game I knew nothing about, but actually came away pretty impressed. It’s still an Atari 2600 game, and thus you can’t expect a whole lot of depth. But, what’s here is pretty cool. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Gravitar (Atari Flashback Classics Vol 2)

Until today, I had never even heard of the Atari 2600 game “Gravitar”. From the title, I felt like it was probably a pretty generic sci-fi shooter. I was kind of right. Gravitar is a shooter in the same vein as Asteroids, with the same thruster-based movement and triangle-shaped spaceship. But Gravitar manages to separate itself from other similar games with a genuine sense of progression, something that is lacking in a lot of Atari games. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Super Bomberman R (Nintendo Switch)

Like many other Switch owners, Super Bomberman R was one of the first games I got for the console. It’s easy to see why too. Other than The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, There wasn’t really a whole lot available at launch. Bomberman was at least a classic IP, and one that hadn’t seen a proper release in many years. It’s been a few months now, how does the game stack up? Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

I primarily use my Random Game Wednesdays feature to showcase older games. It’s a good excuse to go back and look at all the games that are sitting in my collection. But, it’s not exclusively meant to be that. So, I thought it would be fun to look at my Xbox One library again, like I did for Mortal Kombat X. This time, the random number generator gave me the highly acclaimed 2014 release, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.  Continue reading
