Retro Game Night: The Shield The Game

leave a comment »

For our next episode of Is It Kusoge? Fred is playing The Shield The Game based on the FX Network’s popular television show.  With the licensing of Michael Chiklis playing his role as lead of the Strike Team Vic Mackey not to mention several other talent from the show.  Will this licensed product prove to be like the rest, a rare game like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or is it kusoge?

Warning: The video clearly conveys this, but this title contains adult content including violence and language (nudity is mentioned but doesn’t appear in our playthrough).  Viewer discretion is advised.

Retro Game Night: Rumble Roses

leave a comment »

As part of the three game obligation from over a month ago, Fred had to cover Rumble Roses, an all female wrestling game on the Playstation 2.  Just from the box art you can tell that this game is most likely suggestive with skimpy outfits, busty women, and provocative poses.  Well now we play the game, see what it has to offer, and even decide if it’s kusoge or not (explained in the video).  While there is no true nudity or sexual content, you may want to consider what follows to be NSFW (not safe for work), but it is worth checking out if only to see this wacky Konami title from a time where companies took more risks.
