Games Based on Movies that Don’t Exist: Apocalypse

Apocalypse stars Bruce Willis as Trey Kincaid in a si-fi action-adventure spanning through prison riots, zombie filled sewers and crime ridden city streets all in a desperate attempt to stop the mad scientist, “The Reverend”, from destroying the world by summoning the four horsemen of the apocalypse. As the title would imply, this game is based on a movie that doesn’t exist, but unlike most of the other games which fit into that category, Apocalypse was never intended to be based on any kind of film or franchise. The reason I call it a game based on a non-existant movie is because everyone thinks that it’s a game based on a movie.… Read the rest

Final Fantasy VII Remake Announced

Final Fantasy VII. What a game. One of the first console role playing games for many people and a favourite among many more. It is sometimes called the “Game that Sold the Playstation”, although I’m sure the Playstation would have sold regardless. Some people like to hate on it because of its popularity while others use it as a benchmark of which all other console RPGs are judged. I remember when I told my mother I was going to save up my allowance to buy the game. She said it sounded like a porno title. The classy lass she is.

Game Review: Ungra Walker アングラウォーカー

Ungra Walker is a rogue-like dungeon crawler from game studio Success and was released in 2002 for the Sony Playstation. To the best of my knowledge it was Japan-only and never saw a translation nor a release overseas. The title seems a bit odd, but I’m pretty sure it’s a bastardization of “Underground Walker,” as in someone who walks under ground, which is actually pretty fitting for a dungeon crawler like this. The game starts you off picking a name, a gender and a class. You are able to play as a warrior, a thief, a wizard or a priest. You can change the color of your characters outfit as well, but it’s completely arbitrary.… Read the rest

Game Review: Future Cop L.A.P.D.

Future Cop LAPD was published by Electronic Arts (before they turned into the glorified crap factory they are today) and was released in 1998 for the Sony Playstation. Future Cop puts the player in the giant metallic shoes of an X1 Alpha; a sophisticated anti-crime vehicle murder factory on legs. The X1 Alpha is a run-of-the-mill combat mecha which also has the ability to transform into a fast, deadly and damn near uncontrollable hover-craft. The game and its plot revolves around a crime wave taking place in Los Angeles. It seems that in the year 2098, conventional crime fighting techniques have been replaced with a more efficient, “kill anything that moves” approach.… Read the rest
