2016 was a terrible year for many, myself included thanks to having something of a mental breakdown, resulting in me essentially sitting out most of the year. I’m fairly positive that I didn’t adhere to any of my resolutions from last year so this year is going to be an especially fresh start. I’ve got 12 resolutions this year (yeah, that’s a lot) but I’ve got a whole year to do them! These are my New Years Resolutions for 2017!
A new year, a new chance to hit a metaphorical reset button and change yourself for the better. For the most part, 2015 for me was fairly uneventful but better than 2014. I managed to keep most of my New Year Resolutions from last year and now I have a relatively fresh new list of resolutions for this year. Here are my five New Years Resolutions for 2016.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is now available, after over five years without a new entry in the once widely successful Tony Hawk franchise of games. Reviews aren’t quite out for the game yet but um…
Yeah. So I thought I would reminisce about the Tony Hawk games that didn’t do, well, whatever the hell is happening above this paragraph. The games that I spent hours on as I tried to land the perfect trick, collect all of the SKATE letters, and reach hidden areas, usually with a two minute time limit. So here is my list of the five best Tony Hawk games. As always, this is my personal opinion and it’s based on aggregate scores or other opinions. This is based on what I’ve played and what I enjoyed more.
2015 is off to a pretty decent start. I haven’t been able to play every major new release but I’ve played a few smaller games here and there. One of my more anticipated games has actually already come out, Ori and The Blind Forest. Check out the next Gaming Landscape for my final thoughts on that game. However, with the first quarter of the year now behind us and a better idea of what the rest of the year is going to entail, I thought I’d give my top five anticipated games of 2015. These are my own picks, of course, so if you’re most anticipated game isn’t on this list, that’s probably because you aren’t me. With that said, lets talk about some (hopefully) cool games!
2015 is now upon us and the mandatory New Years resolutions must be made. I actually didn’t have any resolutions right before writing this. I wanted to make New Years resolutions, I planned to make New Years resolutions, but I just never did. However, I did have like some ideas of what I want to accomplish in the new year and to do those ideas, I would have to change a few things about what I usually do. Those are my New Years resolutions so lets get to them.
2014 was a rough year for video games and I ended up not playing a lot of new games as a result. Therefore, coming up with this list was actually pretty hard. The reason wasn’t necessarily because there weren’t enough good games released in 2014 but there weren’t enough great games. Games like Octodad: Dadliest Catch were fun but not particularly exceptional. Still, 2014 had some titles that surprised me and if I can say anything positive about 2014, it’s that it was a year that surprised me. So without further delay, I give you my personal favorite games of 2014!
Remember Twisted Metal? It was the premiere franchise in the vehicular combat genre. The exploits of Sweet Tooth and the other drivers at the behest of contest holder Calypso built an interesting lore as well as a fun game. And what a fun game it was! Blasting cars with missiles, jumping ramps, blowing up buildings, pushing cars off of skyscrapers! It’s was pure carnal entertainment and I love every entry in the series. There have been a total of eight games (and three ports) in the franchise and as a big fan of the series, I thought a list of the best games in the franchise would be in order. So jump in your car and hook up missile launchers to it because here are the 5ive Best Twisted Metal Games!
HD remasters and re-releases are all the rage in video games right now. Remember Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando? You can play that game on your PS3 in HD now. You don’t need the original PS2 version. How about Golden Axe? You can get that and a bunch of other awesome games from the Sega Genesis on the Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection? What about Final Fantasy IV? FOOL! You can get that on your phone or on the computer, with extra content and brand new graphics! Hell, they’re re-releasing games on the new consoles that are only a couple of years old. Sleeping Dogs is coming to the PS4 and X1 next week. So pretty much any game that you like from the past you can now play on the current generation of consoles, right? WRONG! Despite the video game industry’s best efforts, there are still great games that have yet to be ported even once! For that reason, here are 5ive Games That Have Never Been Ported.
This year was the year I finally bought a Nintendo 3DS. Back in April, I went to my local Walmart and bought a blue 3DS XL with three games. Now the year is coming to an end and while at first I didn’t use my 3DS that much, I’m now in love with my 3DS. The games I’ve played has made me hopeful for the handheld’s library. I played exactly 13 games this year, some to completion and some not. So I thought I would talk about them. Continue reading “Countdown: My 13 3DS Games of 2013”
I haven’t played all the big games released this year but I’ve played a lot of them. So here are my personal top five games I’ve played in 2013 so far in no particular order. All these games are from the first four months of the year. Without further adieu, let’s get started.
