REVIEW: MEN IN BLACK: THE SERIES – CRASHDOWN (PSOne)

As big as 1997’s Men in Black was, North American console only gamers wouldn’t be able to play as a member of the elite, shadowy, alien policing organization on a home console until a year after the PlayStation 2, and it wouldn’t even be on the PS2, but rather the original PlayStation. Like the MIB’s debut Game…

COUNTDOWN TO APOCALYPSE MONTH PART 3: MARVEL COMICS X-MEN VS. STREET FIGHTER/MARVEL SUPER HEROES VS. STREET FIGHTER (PSOne)

Is it just me, or did it seem like Capcom habitually used the X-Men as a testing ground for larger Marvel Universe ideas? On the SNES, there was X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse which was followed by Marvel Super Heroes: War of the Gems. When the seeds of the Vs. Series were first being planted, there came X-Men: Children of the Atom which was precedded…

REVIEW: DANGER GIRL (PSOne)

Growing up as a video game fan in the 90’s couldn’t have easy for a female. Sure, there was Joanna Dark to look up to and even Lara Croft was a no-nonsense, intelligent role model who was just as comfortable in a museum as in a shooting gallery, but all those qualities that made the…

RANKING THE FANTASTIC FOUR VIDEO GAMES

Through the month of July, I’ve looked at all the Fantastic Four games across several generations of consoles and handhelds. While of the seven games I’ve looked at I would only really recommended you at least try two of them, some are definitely better than the rest. To close out Fantastic Four month, here’s the…

REVIEW: X-MEN: MUTANT ACADEMY (PSOne)

Back around the time when promotion was starting to ramp up for Activision’s X-Men: Mutant Academy, I failed to see why the world needed it. I understood why it was coming out as Fox’s first X-Men film was on the way and there was money to be made, but save that, it never felt like a game I needed. As…

REVIEW: FANTASTIC FOUR (PSONE)

Fantastic Four on the PSOne wouldn’t be the first time that members of the group would get their own game, that honour would go to the PC graphical adventure title Questrobe featuring Human Torch and the Thing, but it marked the first time the Four would be together in their own video game and on a console…

REVIEW: BATMAN FOREVER: THE ARCADE GAME (PSONE)

Batman Forever was the turning point for Warner Bros. first go at the Batman film franchise not only from a movie making stand point, but for the tie-in games as well. Except for the games developed by American studios like Batman Returns on the Sega Genesis, most of the Batman film games were developed by Japanese studios…

OTHER THINGS TO LOOK FORWARD TO FROM COMIC GAMERS ASSEMBLE IN 2015

Presently I’m busy playing games and gathering my thoughts on the second chapter of my “Year of Acclaim” feature (something that’s proving to be EXTREMELY difficult), and on top of that I’m brainstorming up some new ideas I’d like to share with you for other parts of the year as well. Starting with: APRIL ULTIMATE…
