Video Game Ad of the Day: Myth: The Fallen Lords

Before Bungie was forced into its singular Halo focus, they made other games. One such game was Myth: The Fallen Lords, an ultra gory real-time strategy game. Myth was different to most RTS games of the day in that it didn’t focus on resource collecting and base building – it was all about trying to get through missions with the least number of casualties by using advanced formation tactics and taking full advantage of the game’s rich physics system.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Fighting Force 64

Fighting Force is a good example of a middling game with a clever advertising campaign. The Nintendo 64 port was released almost two years after the original PlayStation release. The game was actually originally intended to be Streets of Rage 4, until Sega and Core Design ran into issues regarding porting the game to other platforms, which resulted in the completed Saturn version of the game never being released.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver is the second game in the series, and the first to be developed by series mainstay Crystal Dynamics. It focuses on the vampire Raziel, who was cast out of Kain’s crew after having the audacity to evolve faster than his boss. Coincidentally, there’s a pretty solid rumour going around that the series is due for a reboot, which should please those who didn’t like the direction the series took in later entries.
