One response to “Hart & Usagi #82

  1. I haven’t played any of the Yakuza games yet… but there are some on my wishlist. I’ll get there. Remember… I’m Johnny-come-eventually.

    More games I haven’t played? Windjammers, sure. I haven’t played that one. Stick to defense and you’ll score eventually? Is that what I heard? Here’s Matt playing that game (ST:TNG reference anyone?)

    Night Trap? Yeah, never played that one either. I don’t have any interest in the experience though.

    Dah-rye-us-Burst? I’m going to go with you’re right. I usually pronounce game names wrong. I’ve been pronouncing it Dare-ee-us-Burst.

    I did like Wolfenstein the New Order though… I haven’t played the Old Blood though.

    I got Shadow Warrior for free on Steam too… I don’t remember which one it is though, and I’ve barely played it. It must be the first one.

    I haven’t played any of the Mafia games. I’m really striking out on this podcast so far.

    Syphon Filter Logan’s Shadow… okay, yes, I’ve played that one. It was alright. I’ve played Soul Calibur 3 a very little bit. My wife an I used to play fighting games together, and after a stint of not, I picked up that one cheap for PS2 to give it a try and see if we could recapture the magic… we didn’t. I think things just got too technical. We seemed to have more fun with One Must Fall on the PC.

    I recognize names of some of the games that Micronics has ported, like Tiger Heli, 1942, and Ikari Warriors, but I played them on the C64. I don’t know who did those ports.

    Prototype – I only played the sequel, which was okay. I wanted to play the first but I could never find it cheap and by the time re-masters and such came out I lost interest. I liked Darkwatch though. Not great, but enjoyable. Project Snowblind, I’m with you there too.

    DMC3… you know I tried starting the remastered trilogy on PS3, and I just can’t get into it. Maybe I’ll skip to 3 and see if I feel any different, but I just can’t seem to be bothered with #1.

    Death by Degrees. I did start playing that piece of shit and gave up and sold it.

    Shadow of the Colossus, I love that game. I’m sure I’ll be buying the PS4 remaster next year.

    Prince of Persia, The Two Thrones! That’s a good one for 2005. Did you say that one while I was distracted typing?
    Jak X, my favourite racing game.

    Resident Evil 4. Yes, twenty-oh-five: great year for gaming.
