Video Game Review
on Monday, November 26, 2012
We go back to the days of floppy disks with SEAL Team, a 1993 game for DOS that was the precursor to the tactical shooter genre. Watch as Roland assembles a SEAL team and dispatches it for missions in the Mekong Delta, and stay tuned for a review of the 1998 Spec Ops game, Rangers Lead the Way, coming soon!
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.MechWarrior Retrospective, Part 2: MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat (1995)
Part two of Roland's MechWarrior retrospective covers 1995's MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat, the real codifier of the series and one of the best remembered, with good reason.Reservoir Dogs: The Game
The video game adaptation of Quentin Tarantino's debut film... is one of "those" games. It sucks (goddamn, does it suck), but Roland just can't help but like it.Grand Theft Auto V (PS3): One step forward, one step back
Roland played Grand Theft Auto V for more than a hundred hours, a handful of which contained actual gameplay! It's flawed, rough around the edges, and rough around the middle, with many of GTA 4's best mechanics run through the strainer of Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. By which we mean ruined.Cold Fear (2005)
Just in time for Halloween (if you're in the continental US, and watching literally in the next few hours), Roland takes a sidelong look at Cold Fear, another Resident Evil ripoff in the vein of Blue Stinger, Dino Crisis, or Deep Fear (two of which are exactly the same game as this), and realizes his irrational hatred of Ubisoft was pretty rational after all.MechWarrior Retrospective, Part 4: MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries (1996)
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.
