Keep in mind that these games are ones I played in 2014, they weren't necessarily released in 2014. Full list of nominees can be found below.

Top 10 Games Play in 2014:

10. Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse - I never played the original, but this remastered version had some great platforming and even better settings.

9. Velocity 2X - The pla...

What are you playing this weekend? - Independence Day Edition

I'm sure DaddyBo is busy with holiday stuff, so I'll fill in for him.

What you guys playing this weekend? I just wrapped up Tomb Raider :ps3: and had a really good time with it, but I don't know what to play next. Probably something else on my PS3 hard drive so I can clear up some more space. I tried Doki Doki :ps4: but it seems really stupid.

E3 Wrap Up - Nintendo and Final Thoughts

Posted by tylerh1701, in Nintendo WiiU, Nintendo 3DS, Gaming News 27 June 2014 - - - - - - · 2407 views

Make sure to check out my thoughts on Microsoft's and Sony's E3 Press Conferences as well!


I gotta say, this was Nintendo's best E3 show in years. I didn't fall hook, line, and sinker for some of the tacked-on stuff like the Reggie/Iwata fight and the Robot Chicken skits, but as for actual games Nintendo was really able to outshine some o...

E3 Wrap Up - Sony

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita 24 June 2014 - * * * * * · 910 views

Figure I better get the rest of these posted, as E3 becomes more and more of an afterthought. Previously you can read my takeaways from the Microsoft E3 Conference .


I thought Sony did the best of the big 3, but they all did well. Sony had better surprises, which is my favorite part of E3. The white PS4 was the first out-of-nowhere reveal and...

E3 Wrap Up - Microsoft

Posted by tylerh1701, in Xbox 360, Xbox One, Gaming News 18 June 2014 - - - - - - · 1120 views

Well E3 is long since over but I thought I'd post my takeaways of it, specifically the conferences since that is mostly what I watched. I was going to post them all in one blog, but each wrap up started to run a little long, so I'm going to break them up into 3 separate posts.


Microsoft wasn't lying when they said they we're doing "Games...

Ranking My 18 Platinum Trophies

Posted by tylerh1701, in PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita 23 May 2014 - - - - - - · 1651 views

I'm bored and need something to do until my lunch at 11:30, so I thought I'd do an overview of the 18 Sony games I've actually been able to Platinum.

#18 Lego Indiana Jones 2 - A pretty crumby game and a pretty boring platinum.

#17 Lego Batman 2 (Vita) - Little bit better than Indiana Jones, but still not much to be said about it.

#16 Sonic's Ultima...

Frequent readers already know the drawn out story of my Xbox 360 and getting banned from Xbox Live, but if you need a refresher on it you can read all about it here , here , and here . Well last week I finally wrapped up my time with my 360 and sold it to my brother. Soon after the ban I also got rid of my Windows Phone 7, which I was a regular game on as...

Fable Anniversary Review

Posted by tylerh1701, in Xbox 360 21 April 2014 - - - - - - · 1199 views

I never owned an Xbox 1 original Xbox, so I never got around to playing the original Fable. My cousin sang its praises and sunk hundreds of hours into the game, so I was always quite interested in checking it out. I've had Fable 2 and 3 in my Xbox 360 backlog for quite a while, but never played them since I didn't want to play the games out of order. So...

My XBLA Backlog

Posted by tylerh1701, in Xbox 360 10 April 2014 - - - - - - · 1084 views

After a few months of focus, I'm getting down to the final stretches of my XBLA backlog. Just counted up, and I have 33 games left to play. My goal is to be done with the backlog by the end of May, but it may end up stretching into June a little bit. One nice thing is that a lot of these games are rather short and I can get through an entire game in a...
