Gameplay Vault: Mario Party 9

Mario Party 9 was a pretty fun game. I’ve missed out on most of the series, but I was happy to be able to play and review this one. To be honest though, much of the game is eerily similar to the first game in the series, and by that I mean it’s a heck of a lot of fun with friends! While playing with my girlfriend, I decided to record some gameplay. Here is the resulting montage of Mario madness. Enjoy!

Gameplay Vault: The Simpsons Arcade Game

After nearly two decades of being left in arcade obscurity, The Simpsons Arcade Game has finally been released for home consoles. I have fond memories playing this machine when I was much younger, and that was even if I could find it. To the best of my knowledge, this was a rather rare cabinet to find sitting in an arcade. But if you did find one, you bet your ass someone was playing as Marge, Bart, Lisa, or Homer and enjoying themselves. I’ve uploaded some videos of my playthrough of the game, and have put them here for your viewing pleasure. Sit back and enjoy, and don’t have a cow, man!

Gameplay Vault: Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure

There has been no short supply of good games for me to play these past few weeks, especially after receiving so many excellent gifts from friends and family over the holidays. I’m surprised, however, that after wanting to play Skyrim for so long and finally getting the game for my own, I have spent my time instead playing Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure on the PS3. The game certainly is unique (with physical toys being used to represent your avatars on screen), but why has it held my interest over the much more acclaimed Skyrim? Why have so many games come out recently with “Sky” in their name? Maybe it’s a coincidence, but what if it’s something more? Hmmm…

Gameplay Vault: Xotic

Xotic is a first-person shooter/arcade style hybrid game released for the Xbox 360. The game is indie in design, but has a lot going for it, including relatively high production values and an interesting premise to say the least. Unfortunately the game just doesn’t work as well as it should. I recorded some gameplay for you all to see, and you can hear my commentary about the game as well. Check it out…

Gameplay Vault: Bloody Roar II

As stated before, I picked up the first two Bloody Roar games a few weeks back and have been enjoying them since. I recently completed a run through off the first game and have moved on to the second. Playing the two games in sequence was actually quite fun: I noticed the enhancements that were made, the additions and tweaks that changed the game for the better, and the strange omission of other intricacies. Oh yeah, and I also beat this game, too.

Gameplay Vault: Skeleton Warriors

I found this title earlier in the week at a used game store for two bucks. Needless to say, my hopes weren’t high. The game came out sometime around the launch of the original Playstation in 1996 (about a year after initial release), and for an early title it’s not horrible. Just watch and see for yourself.
