U.S. Most Wanted: Nowhere to Hide
on Sunday, November 4, 2012
The Budget Barrel is back, baby, with the third game in the "Harm Trilogy" (as Roland calls them): U.S. Most Wanted: Nowhere to Hide
, an FPS where you hunt down terrorists in vaguely-defined missions. Most Wanted
makes some changes to the engine and formula used by In Harm's Way
and Shadow Force
. How does it turn out? Badly. For everyone involved.
Secret Service: Security Breach
Unfortunately, the Secret Service license passed to 4D Rulers software. And 4D Rulers made Secret Service: Security Breach, the worst game Roland's ever played.S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat (2010)
Call of Pripyat is the best S.T.A.L.K.E.R. "game". So?
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl (2007)
Welcome to 2007, the year the FPS genre came back to life. For a bit. Then died again. The rest of the games industry would soon follow.GameStop: Leave our games alone

It's the biggest, baddest, buggiest MechWarrior game of all time! Part 4 of the MechWarrior retrospective continues with the standalone expansion pack to MechWarrior 2 called Mercenaries.MechWarrior Retrospective, Part 1: MechWarrior (1989)
We're kicking off a multi-part retrospective about the MechWarrior series, one of the longest running game franchises, and definitely one of Roland's favorites. Part 1 is MechWarrior, developed by Dynamix for DOS PCs in 1989. It's the first game in the series, and the genesis of a genre.
