FIRST LOOK: Loco Roco (PSP)

The latest PSP firmware (updates that add new features to the PSP, but also close loopholes used by hackers) was recently released. 2.7 brings Flash support to the web browser and improved music and video playback, but they’re not the real reason to update. The real reason is Loco Roco, a downloadable demo. Following the … Continue reading »

REVIEW: Retrospective – Crazy Taxi (PS2)

Now here’s a new section for you! Reviews from about 3 years ago, of games older than that, today! It’s so crazy it might just work. Or at least it might make you go hunt these old games down at your local Gamestation/eBay. The reviews are by me, DrDoomsday, lazygamer’s brother. So, onwards with the … Continue reading »

REVIEW: Tetris DS (Nintendo DS)

Nintendo‚Äôs policy of cheap, cheerful and (most importantly) addictive and original gameplay has paid off in spades with the Nintendo DS. Managing to hold its own against the flashy Sony PSP (and outsell it in Japan), the cheaper and more accessible DS arguably also has the better selection of games. Not bad for something initially … Continue reading »

REVIEW: Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan (Nintendo DS)

Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan is quite possibly the most obtuse game I have ever played. But also one of the best games I have ever played on the DS. As a member of your local ‘helper squadron’, you are dispatched to help people in your neighbourhood who need your support. Your support however is slightly different … Continue reading »

REVIEW: Gauntlet (Xbox Live Arcade)

The Midway classic gets a reprise on Microsoft’s blockbuster console, but does it still manage to entertain against the next generation of games? I was only 2 when Gauntlet first came out, but that doesn’t stop me remembering playing it in the late 80’s in seaside arcades with a pocketful of 10p’s nicked from my … Continue reading »

BLOG: My 360 arrived! A lesson in buying a new console.

OK, so it actually arrived over 2 weeks ago, but that is beside the point. I managed to get the premium 360 pack from Argos.co.uk of all places (surprising, since the 360 was not in their catalogue nor was it being sold in any of the stores). More surprising was the fact it came with … Continue reading »

BLOG: Frustrations of awaiting delivery of an Xbox 360…

*twiddles thumbs* *looks at watch* *rinses* *repeats* “Unfortunately we are unable to deliver the item: Xbox 360 Premium Pack on the day specified. Expect the delivery on ‘Friday 6th January 2006 8am-6pm’. Apologies, Argos”. Fuckers. I’m rather glad then that I still have my existing xbox, and a few games left. Not that I only … Continue reading »

VIDEO: Burnout M62 Edition

Although I love the Burnout series, I think EA Games might be stretching a bit thin here… Yes, this is my handiwork, patching footage of Burnout Revenge (although that’s a bit scant in its appearance) with sped up footage of someone driving down the M62*, with a little help from iMovie. Thanks to the CBRD … Continue reading »

SHOCKWAVE: South Game #2 (2002) – More Director larks

Another old (2002) Shockwave piece made for a University Project. I should feel ashamed, but it was my second ever project in Director. Cannot see the game below? Download the Shockwave Player plugin

A super old (2002) Shockwave piece made for a University Project. I should feel ashamed, but it was my first ever project in Director. Cannot see the game below? Download the Shockwave Player plugin
