Game Backlog Update #13
One game down, too many to go! I can now cross State of Decay off my list. Here’s my take on it.
Director Ruben Fleischer once again teams up with Jesse Eisenberg, the star of his previous film Zombieland, for 30 Minutes or Less. The outcome of this partnership is an amusingly farcical thriller that doesn’t outstay its welcome.
The original Tron was, for its time, a visually groundbreaking film. Embracing the arcade gaming culture of the early ’80s, it was a colourful, highly original visual feast. It was a love letter to the computer generation and it made no apologies for that.
But it hasn’t aged well. Not at all.
I didn’t have a post scheduled for this week, so I thought I’d pop on with a quick update for you all instead.
Game Backlog Update #9
Another update, another game removed from my teetering pile of unplayed games.
It would be remiss of me to talk about Never Alone without first steering you towards Eurogamer’s excellent review of it. Daniel Starkey’s write-up is easily one of the best reviews I’ve ever read.
Here’s a follow-up to my post from a couple of weeks ago. After listing five films that take me back to my childhood, it seems only fair that I list five video games that do the same.
I’ve been playing video games ever since I was old enough to pick up a controller. I remember playing hot seat with my brother on his Atari 2600, trying to beat each other’s scores on games like Crystal Castles and Dark Chambers. Looking back now, I realise that was the start of what would become a lifelong hobby.
