2012: The Gaming Year in Review
on Saturday, January 12, 2013
2012 was... a year in gaming. Just another year. But there was some cool stuff that happened, and this video is about all the games Roland played this year that he didn't already get a chance to talk about, including Spec Ops: The Line, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Tribes: Ascend, MechWarrior Online, Hawken, Alan Wake (the PC version), and a bunch of indie games.
In part two, Roland talks to his friend Codeknight about a few high profile games that Roland didn't get around to playing this year. Pretty big spoilers abound for Assassin's Creed III, Dishonored, X-COM: Enemy Unknown, and Jagged Alliance: Back in Action.
Body Harvest (1998) for Nintendo 64
Body Harvest is a game where you travel back in time to stop an alien invasion force that's come to earth to harvest the human population.Marathon: a 20th anniversary retrospective
Find yourself starting back. Escape will make me God.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.Spec Ops: The Line
In this supplemental episode, Roland takes a closer look at Spec Ops: The Line, and analyzes the positive attention it's been getting from game writers. Does The Line's story make up for its bad gameplay? Let's find out!SAS: Secure Tomorrow (2008)
Just in time to miss Halloween, Roland reviews a game that's legitimately scary... for how bad it is.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.
