Games of the year 2010

As usual, I’ve missed out on several “game of the year” candidates in 2010, only getting to them some time later, if ever. These include Red Dead Redemption (which I will get), Mass Effect 2 (will play), the new Call

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

I never learned how to play Metal Gear despite finishing several titles from the series. Peace Walker teaches you how to play Metal Gear properly, and it feels good to finally be on even terms with the series. It’s quite

What I’ve been playing this summer (part II)

Alan Wake (Xbox 360) Alan Wake finally came out and for me, it was well worth the wait. Top of the line storytelling all through, with unparalleled pacing and cinematic conventions. Great setting, great writing, great characters and good gameplay.

Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny

Fighting games on handheld consoles are something of a weird combination. Obviously the big problem is that unless there happens to be a PSP-player with the same game in the same room (and that room isn’t an airline cabin), I

For the most of 2009 I spent my gaming time playing games from 2008 – Far Cry 2, Fable II, Rock Band 2, lots of cheap PSP & DS titles, Company Of Heroes, Dawn Of War (the first one) –

Rock Band Unplugged

I got the PSP incarnation of my favorite franchise on a trip to Guildford, UK. It continues to baffle me why I need to pay so much more for the games over here in Finland. I would certainly buy a

R-Type Command (Tactics)

I got the US version of R-Type Tactics, titled R-Type Command. Hooray for region-free games, it should all be this way. (Incidentally, I also finally got Professor Layton And The Curious Village for the DS from San Francisco during GDC09

Speaking of Super Stardust

The 4€ Expansion Pack, adding some new music and three new game modes? Totally worth it. The three new modes are Survival, Bomber and Endless, all equally great at taking the base game’s mechanics further. Come on, that’s less than

Housemarque’s space shooter has been through a great many incarnations. I’ve played the latest on the PSP for quite a bit. As a score shooter, it’s the best “just one quick go” experience I’ve had in years. My favorite used
