Wow, has it been two and a half years since the last Gaming Apologist article? http://(http://www.rfgene...logist-Volume-1-3841.php)  Ah well, it only takes two to be a series, right?  If the title or previous article was tl:dr, the idea is simple; here are a few titles that don't have the greatest reviews, and I'd readily admit have faults, but I have found well worth my time and I fully enjoy.

Sewer Shark is one of the first games by Digital Pictures, creators of Night Trap and Double Switch. Like most of these games, it tends to be looked on with a little derision. However, I played it and found out, it's actually good! It combines hammy FMV acting and story with some rail shooting and pattern following that's actually quite engaging. Shoot the tubes, dogmeat!

In this month's episode of the PlayCast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) turn hepcats as they discuss Super Giant's indie darling, Transistor, and create a list of recommended jazz albums in this month's ConcertCast segment. Shawn is admittedly not a big fan of SG's first title, Bastion, so how will returning to play another game by this developer fair? The guys breakdown all of the ins and outs of the game, including gameplay mechanics, graphics, and the game's lush soundtrack. Is Transistor a crumbling utopian, sci-fi adventure that you should add to your collection or download queue?  Stay tuned and fine out!

Posted under VGM, cover, ori


A couple of months ago, some fellow VGM cover artists and I formed a group called 8-Bit Battleground where we each cover the same track and listeners vote for their favorite. This track from Ori and the Blind Forest was chosen for our second monthly cover, and while it was an intimidating piece to work on initially, I'm really proud of the end result and think it's one of my best covers yet! I hope you all enjoy it!

Long known as one of the top companies in the PC world, Microsoft began its foray into console gaming in late 2001 with the release of the XBox. The system would directly compete with Sony's PlayStation 2 and Nintendo's GameCube, even though its third-party support saw several crossover titles with the PS2.

Ah, Shovel Knight. The poster child and gold standard for a successful Kickstarter. Also an excellent game!

In decades past, development studios would plot out a game concept, determine its viability, assign a team, and dedicate funds and resources to make the game concept a reality. Sometimes the funds would come from an outside publisher or other interested party, and other times the development studio was part of a publisher, so it would be funded internally. If a game was fully developed, it would "go gold" and be submitted for approval by the company whose platform on which the game was to appear. Once approval was given, it would go into a queue for manufacturing, and the advertising hype cycle could begin.

That model still exists, of course, and is still used by many companies. But over the last decade, a new paradigm has gone from a novelty to a norm. With the rise of indie gaming, many smaller studios have sought other means of funding their creations. Couple that with developers from the old guard who want to continue to make retro-styled games or smaller adventures that don't warrant big budgets, and the larger publishing houses often see those projects as loss leaders, and they get very little attention next to the big franchises. The new paradigm for self-contained experiences is crowdfunding.

I love making over masks. I have done a few Jason masks in the past, but this time I got my hands on NECA's Casey Jones mask from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, but this thing is too fresh and clean. I need to scuff it up some and add some dirt to it to make it more movie realistic.

Posted under Beat em ups, Brawlers, coop


I recently received my copy of Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game from Limited Run Games and gave it a go for the first time in several years. I was quickly reminded not just how much I love the game, but how much of a love letter it is to games of its kind from the NES and SNES. In those days, I played pretty much every game I could get my hands on, but as much as I loved racing games, shooters, and the occasional RPG, the vast majority of my game time was spent with platformers and beat-em-ups (aka. brawlers).

Posted under VGM, music, gaming, OST


Cyber Shadow is a game that I was anxiously awaiting leading up to its release and day-one availability on Game Pass, and it certainly didn't disappoint. But as much as I enjoyed the gameplay and the challenge it offers, I think the incredible soundtrack may be my favorite part of the game. I knew I was going to cover some of the music eventually, and this track from the game's third stage 'Mekacity Ruins' seemed like a good place to start due to its relative simplicity. There are several more tracks from the game I'd like to get around to eventually, but in the meantime, I hope you'll enjoy this one!

The first Breath of Fire game was considered a nice success for Capcom, enough to not only warrant a sequel but to also localize and release that sequel internationally once again. This time, they would do it themselves instead of contracting Squaresoft. They probably should have, as the game is notorious for having a bad translation. Breath of Fire II would release in Japan in 1994, with a very late 1995 release in North America. This time, a small, obscure, and seemingly German publisher named Laguna Video Games would also publish and release the Super Nintendo game in Europe in 1996. The Game Boy Advance port of Breath of Fire II also followed in 2001 in Japan, with a 2002 release in North America. Ubisoft also handled the European release of the Game Boy Advance port and also released it in 2002.

Posted under gaming, review


Tomb Raider: Legend - The Legend Trilogy is a bit of a blind spot for me, and by that I mean I never played the original CORE developed series and skipped right to Crystal Dynamics' second reboot of the series known as Tomb Raider 2013. The team's first reboot of the franchise was actually in 2006 with Legend, which is the only Tomb Raider game on the original XBOX. This is one of my favorite games that I have played in a long time. Crystal Dynamics took what was great about the original series but made it more accessible to more casual players such as myself. The game is somewhat linear but there are many opportunities to explore and find collectibles. The graphics look great, even though I wouldn't necessarily recommend playing this particular version as it is available on more modern consoles. Oddly enough one of my favorite things about this game were its ease of use features. For example the time from booting up the game to jumping back into your game is mere seconds. Also, the game checkpoints constantly, which is a strong contrast to the next game I'm going to talk about.
