Fatal Frame (in the US), known as Project Zero in PAL, and just “Zero” in Japan is a Survival Horror game that I refused to give a chance.
I have always had issues with skeevy Japanese schoolgirl fetish/anime shite, so I incorrectly assumed a game with a young female protagonist would be up-skirt waifu-bait, and thus never gave Project Zero a chance.
So here I am, to beg you all for forgiveness. Project Zero is honestly the most pants browning game I have ever played. Continue reading
UFO: Aftermath started off “The Dreamland Chronicles: Freedom Ridge” by Mythos Games, but was eventually abandoned. It is an homage to X-Com, and is partly based on the abandoned X-Com: Genesis. It is *NOT* officially related to UFO: Enemy Unknown (X-Com: UFO Defense).
There are games that come along every now and then that have blown my socks off. Silent Hill 2 is one of them, Final Fantasy VI is another. With that, Knights of the Old Republic is firmly in the socks blown asunder camp.
I played this a lot at release, I borrowed the XBOX version off of a mate, but I also ended up buying my own copy for the PC. It means that I have played through it a number of times, attempting different paths. But it is probably 10 years since the last time I donned the Jedi robes and ventured into the Old Republic if we ignore the MMORPG (please ignore the MMORPG).

I am going to do a top Light gun Games list soon, and to do that I want to get a few games out of the way. So apologies to the many people who don’t like On-Rails shooters as much as me.
Gunfighter 1 was a really slow Time Crisis clone, it looked like shit, and didn’t play much better. And since I am coming close to the end of collection of Light Gun Games it was a case of barrel scraping, and seeing what is left. Continue reading
What better way to wrap up Konami month than with Silent Hill 3, on anniversary of reviewing Silent Hill 1!
Silent Hill 2 is my favourite game, I honestly think it to be one of the few examples of a perfect videogame, so coming into Silent Hill 3 for the first time it has some pretty big shoes to fill. Continue reading
Every now and again I come across a game that blows me away and I really enjoy it. Maybe my expectations were low for RE: Dead Aim, but I found the game way more fun than it had any right to be!
If TL/DL skip to conclusion.
Wind Waker has always been a strange one for me. I can remember the faux outrage over the cartooney graphics, and I can remember getting bored of the game around the plot twist. So originally (in two attempts), I never completed it.
Fast forward 13 years however and there are many MANY things which make Wind Waker my favourite Zelda game, but then, there are also a few things I take umbrage with. Continue reading
