Fatal Frame
Video games don’t come much scarier than Fatal Frame (or Project Zero for the rest of us). Main character Miku goes to the mysterious Himuro Mansion to look for her brother Mafuyu, who has been missing for several weeks. The mansion is full of evil spirits, which Miku can vanquish with her special antique camera.

Phantasy Star
Phantasy Star is one of the great console RPGs of the 1980s. It was groundbreaking upon release for a number of reasons – fantastic graphics, a much more complex story than most games at the time, and a female lead character.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Sonic the Hedgehog CD

Sonic the Hedgehog CD USA
With Sonic the Hedgehog being Sega’s breakout success in the home console space, it seemed only natural to develop a Sonic game to promote their new CD based add-on, the Mega CD. The Sonic development team essentially splintered off into two groups; a team at Sega Technical Institute in the USA led by Yuji Naka which developed Sonic 2, and a team in Japan led by Naoto Oshima which made Sonic CD. This led to Sonic CD having a distinctly different feel to Sonic 2.

Video Game Ad of the Day: God Hand

by on Mar.01, 2014, under Video Game Ad of the Day

God Hand
God Hand is a difficult yet highly amusing beat ’em up developed by Clover Studio. You play as Gene, who wields one of the titular God Hands, which gives him all kinds of awesome powers. Gene has a bit of a puerile sense of humor which is reflected in his range of special powers, which includes crotch kicks, spankings and a home run hit.
