Sunday Roundup: 12/16/12

New Games (12-16-12)A quick trip into Disc Replay and twenty bucks later I am the owner of six new video games.

Sometimes it’s just as simple as that. Like most other instances when I shop for games, I really only wanted two or three of these, but the allure of paying $10 more and getting three more games is just too good to pass up. (more…)

Sunday Roundup: 10/14/12

I have a small confession to make: this is a culmination of two weeks worth of games. I was unable to get my Sunday Roundup done last week on time, and as you’ll see I had plenty of games to put together a solid week’s worth of titles for you all. But one thing lead to another and I wasn’t able to publish my weekly article. But fear not! The Sunday Roundup has not gone away, and it is back, better than ever. Or at least it’s back. Being better is totally subjective.

Modern Classics: DDRMAX2: Dance Dance Revolution

Once you feel the groove it’s hard to stop. As is the case with my recent reintroduction to the Dance Dance Revolution series. My previous Modern Classics entry was on the first PS2 DDR game, DDRMAX. The newest entry is none other than the sequel DDRMAX2. With more music, more step patterns, more modes, and more ways to get your groove on, MAX2 is one of the greatest games in the entire series. Too bad then that it was the last game that got it all right.

Modern Classics: DDRMAX: Dance Dance Revolution

It’s been a long time since I created the Modern Classics library, and I’ve completely neglected it over these pasts months. With that in mind I set out to reinvent the series, and I wanted to start with a game that easily fit into the Modern Classic criteria:
It has to be a fun, new, innovative, or personal favorite of myself and gamers;
Leaving behind a legacy for the video game world to remember is a plus, and;
There has to be something here that I can teach you about the game.
And what did I come up with? Dance Dance Revolution. And very quickly, actually.

Yearly Roundup: 2011

As 2011 comes to an end, I thought it would be a cool idea to look back at the year in games. Specifically, the year in games added to my ever-growing library. If you’re a frequent visitor to the site (I greatly hope you are!) you’ll no doubt know I do a weekly blog post about my newest games. So below I’ve collected every game I added this year (well, really only half-year, because I started this blog in late July). I’ve also linked any relevant posts I’ve done about said games, like reviews, Modern Classics, and gameplay videos. Enjoy the small retrospective, and here’s to another fantastic year in gaming in 2012!

Sunday Roundup: 11/13/11

Ahhh…
There’s nothing quite like buying a game you’ve been looking for for well over ten years. The satisfaction of thinking you somehow beat the system, found a gem, and finally attained the sought after holy grail of your collection is exhilarating. Until you realize there’s about 400 other rare games you’re still looking for!

Modern Classics: Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix

Wha-Wha-What?! Dance Dance Revolution: Disney Mix? Yeah, it exists, and I was more than happy to grab the game earlier this week and pop it in to the ol’ PS2. Easily one of the hardest to find DDR games available in the US, DDR Disney mix offers up the same DDR dancing experience just with a Mickey Mouse twist. What more could you want?! Well… apparently you can want more content.
