Games I’ve Played in 2015 (1st Half)   2 comments

1. Girl Fight – This fighting game was on sale for $1.99 on the Playstation Network. There’s a reason why it’s so cheap. Other than having all female fighters, this should not be compared to the likes of Street Fighter, Tekken, or Mortal Kombat. Clunky controls and fighting mechanics. Not that great.

2. Puppeteer – This actually caught me by surprise and is quite good.

One dark moonlit night, a young boy named Kutaro was carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle where the unlucky lad was transformed into a puppet. Kutaro displeased the terrible tyrant, who devoured the boy’s wooden head and cast away his body. But the headless hero was not alone, for he had discovered a very special pair of scissors to help him on his harrowing adventure to find his head, and his way home.

As the headless puppet, Kutaro must use Calipers (the magical scissors) to gather all the moonshards and free other lost souls. He also encounters various puppet heads and use their powers along the way. It’s an innovative platformer that sets the game as a grand puppet show.

3. Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara – This is the arcade port of the two Dungeons & Dragons game that came out in the 90s. I remember playing them in the arcades as a kid. You could play with up to 4 people and work together. The years have not been kind to the graphics, but they’re still as fun as I remember them.

4. CounterSpy – It’s a stealth game similar to Metal Gear Solid, but played as a platformer. Using the Cold War setting, you are C.O.U.N.T.E.R. agent who retrieves information from both the Socialist (Soviet Union) and Imperialist (United States) nations. The goal is to try and remain undetected, if possible, and not raise the DefCon level to 1 (5 lowest, 1 highest). If you do, the countries could launch their nukes. So you go back and forth between the two sides stealing information, power-ups, weapons and lower the DefCon threat level.

5. Silent Hill: Homecoming – This is probably the last good Silent Hill game. I’m currently playing Downpour and this one just have much better controls. Alex Shepherd, a soldier returning from war, to his hometown of Shepherd’s Glen (a town outside of Silent Hill), where he finds the town in disarray, and his younger brother missing. As he continues on his search to find his younger brother, he discovers more about the Order, a cult, as well as the town’s history, and his own past.

6. Tokyo Jungle – Humans disappeared (died?). The only ones left are animals. Pets have gone feral and taking over the cities of Tokyo, now overrun by plants. You get to play as one of these animals. Your goal is to survive for as long as you can without dying from other predators bigger than you, starvation. You will also mate and create a family and try to extend your family tree for as many generations as possible.

7. The Unfinished Swan – Artistic games never disappoint.

8. Crime & Punishment: Sherlock Holmes – You play Sherlock Holmes and try to solve murders. It has clunky controls, but I’ll try to beat it. Like most games in this list, I got it for free.
