What the heck, it’s Mother’s Day so let’s talk about cool mums in video games. They do exist! Feel free to comment and add your own suggestions!

Well, this is similar, but it covers quite different subject matter: video game monsters. I love a good monster design and games with lots of cool monsters make me happen.
Here goes – Comment to add your own!

Since I couldn’t think of a topic this wek I thought I’d just steal Rhys’ idea (kind of).
There are a lot of games from my teenage years that I would love to see on a modern console, and there are many games from before my time that I feel I missed out on. So here’s a list of games that need to be brought back. Maybe not changed (much) but certainly brought back to life.
I recently wrote a post about Tekken 5 and it got me thinking of fun gaming things I used to do with my friends and family and what kind of stuff we all do now.
For example, I have a friend who I used to play loads of Singstar (in case you don’t remember!) with – it was always so much fun, going around to her house, playing some Sing Star, watching a movie. But, that was high school, and now she’s a mum and plays a lot on www.partybingo.com with some of our other school friends. It’s never really been my kind of thing (I think she mostly goes for the chat rooms) but one day I might decide to join her.
But here’s a run-down of some of the stuff I used to play with my friends:
At my house
Anyone who came over – my friends, my cousins whoever – would play with me and my sister on the Mega Drive. The best games here were:
At my cousin’s House
I have 2 sets of cousins, but only one set had a Nintendo 64 that we all played. And these were the games:
At my friend’s house
This is the one who plays on Party Bingo these days. Like I said, we played a lot of Singstar. My song was “Poison” by Alice Cooper. The 80s version was the best! This was normally followed by watching a really crap horror movie we’d rented (remember DVD rentals!?).
With my Sister
As a rule, anything I played with my cousins, I also played with my sister. But we also played Neopets together. There were loads of cute creatures to chose from, and some fun mini-games too.
With my Girlfriend
To be honest, me and Jo don’t play a lot of multiplayer games. We play a lot of single player games, together, or she watches me play or vice versa. Examples:
Now, since I’m not really very attracted to guys, this might be a bit hit and miss. In no particular order:
Sadly, this is going to be the final review in the Shadow Hearts series (unless they come back from the dead or until I get my hands on Chaos Wars, which was never released in Europe…). Anyway, please enjoy my Koudelka review.
How is this related to Shadow Hearts? It’s the very start of the franchise – all the main characters in Koudelka somehow leave a legacy in Shadow Hearts.
Main Differences? The battle system is very different, and it plays much more like a traditional survival horror game.
If you like Shadow Hearts visit Judgement-Ring.com. It’s nowhere near done yet, but hey. Anyway, it’s time for my 3rd Shadow Hearts review – it’s Shadow Hearts: From the New World review time.
Where does it place? Last
Does that mean it’s a bad game? Not really
I’m not sure how many of you know, but I really like the Shadow Hearts series, so much so that I’m trying to make a Shadow Hearts Resource Centre that isn’t shit like the wiki is. I’m afraid that this is very time consuming and you’ll have to deal with my Shadow Hearts: Covenant review instead because that will take me less time.
Compared to the original: Better graphics, better voice acting, better battle system, more sillyness
Superman Joachim. Gay mexican wrestling vampires for the win.
I really hope you enjoy this Shadow Hearts review. It’s an awesome game with a really innovative playing method but suffers for being really dreadful at the same time. You’ll see what I mean.
What genre is this game exactly? Mix between survival horror and RPG. So, for wimps like me, it’s a good kind of survival horror game.
Why do you say it’s great but also awful? It’s a great game to play, but the fact it’s an early PS2 game (it’s now over 10 years old) means that the graphics and the voice acting leave a lot to be desired.
