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 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.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.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.A History of Cover-Based Shooters (and why they suck)
Roland takes a look back at the original cover-based shooters, and how they've evolved into the industry standard that's used for so many games today. Then he lays out three of the big issues that seem to plague these games, using Spec Ops: The Line, Max Payne 3, and several older games as examples.Why Legend of Zelda’s Link should be gender optional
“It was a stretch to imagine that Nintendo would make a major change like this, so it’s hard to be too disappointed. But still, it raises a good question: Why not make Link female, or at least gender optional? ”Alpha Black Zero: Intrepid Protocol
It's time once again to roll out the barrel! The Budget Barrel, that is! Sci-fi tactical shooters are a rare beast, but every genre has a budget game or two if you look hard enough. In this episode, Roland reviews Alpha Black Zero, the first, last, and only game made by the Dutch (as far as anyone knows).
