Extra Credit: Top 10 Xbox Games

leave a comment »

xboxMicrosoft’s big clunky box from 2001 may have been laughable at first, but whether you were aware or not it hit like a limited interest storm that holiday.  From a certain shooter to the catalog of Sega and a myriad of PC ports, there’s no denying the Xbox started to bridge the gap between console and computer.  Fred and Jam duke it out once again with 40 more of their favorite titles to see which 10 remain in this month’s Top 10 Xbox games.

Podcast: Parasite Eve Game Club

leave a comment »

parasite_eve_aya

It’s not quite a survival horror, but not quite an RPG.  It’s not quite developed in Japan but hardly a sole USA product either.  Needless to say whether you’ve played it or not, there aren’t really other games with the development history or style of Parasite Eve.  Beloved by those who played it back in the late 90s, this Squaresoft RPG with action elements that hit during the PS1 JRPG boon has its place among Square’s robust catalog.

Extra Credit: PSP Community Top 10

psp

Not the most popular console among the GH101 community, but thanks to a handful of people we have a short, but delightful list of games beloved on Sony’s first portable.  Be sure to give it a listen and find out what’s coming up for our July Top 10.  We didn’t write out the top 10 because the podcast is so short (10 minutes) and it would spoil the fun.  Go listen!

Podcast: Legacy of Multiplayer

with one comment

onlinegamingGaming has always been embedded in the concept of more than one person playing at once.  Whether it’s the past time’s roots in competitive arcade games like Pong or expanding out to couch co-op with a friend in Gears of War, the concept of multiplayer is as old as gaming itself.  Fred and Jam explore the roots and evolution of multiplayer gaming and share of their favorite stories with games they didn’t play alone.

Extra Credit: Retro at E3 2015

E3_2015

To our shock and wonder, there were things announced at this E3 that we never expected.  Without spoiling them here, let’s just say that if you’ve ever dreamed of a sequel or remake and told it would never happen, there’s a chance it may have been announced at E3.  Listen in as Fred and Jam talk about the powerhouse announcements from those of us who’ve been asking for decades.

Podcast: Evolution of the Controller

From joysticks to buttons, d-pads to should triggers, analogs to dual analogs, the video game controller has gone through some interesting and groundbreaking evolution over the course of gaming.  More shocking than each one’s look is the fact that we all learned how to use them to conquer some of gaming’s toughest titles.

Podcast: Majora’s Mask Game Club (Part 2)

leave a comment »

mm_logo_post

This week Fred and Jam wrap up Majora’s Mask with the final two dungeons, the ending, and probably the biggest draw to the game, the side quests. It’s a lengthy discussion that goes down to the wire but definitely demonstrates a game that while not appreciated in its time but can have a second life now.  Part 1 can be found here.

Top 10 Playstation Portable (PSP) Games Debate and Reveal

with 4 comments

psp_1000_big

For this month, Jam and Fred are discussing the top 10 games for the Playstation Portable (PSP). Despite being an emulation and piracy machine from the moment it released, the PSP is not only an impressive piece of hardware but it also provided a library of great software. Clearly some games stand out on both our lists but what was most impressive were the rock solid titles that one of us never even knew existed.  If you look at the full article you can see our top 10 without listening to the podcast.
