The 40 Worst Video Game Covers Ever: Part 2 - Gaming Thoughts

Yesterday we took a look at ten of the worst video game covers ever. However, this segment is about identifying forty of them. Yesterday Hamza kicked off our list and today PY picks up where he left off. One interesting thing to me when I reviewed their choices is how many older games populated their lists. Certainly video games, marketing and even artwork associated with these titles has become more sophisticated over the years, but sometimes it felt like the guys drawing the art had no idea what the game itself was about.

NBA 2K16 offering a speciel edition featuring a familiar NBA face

I remember playing older basketball games when I was a kid - no Michael Jordan was allowed. The EA ones, Tecmo - it did not matter, because Jordan was his own entity outside of the Player's Union. So when a game does get to use him now, even after this many years post-retirement, they like to make a big deal about it.


Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3: V Generation - PS Vita Review

The last of the remakes leading up to Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory 2 is finally here. Victory was not only one of my favorite Neptunia titles, but also one of my favorite games overall. The original Victory showed just how far the series had come from the first entry by fixing older implementations and adding in new mechanics. So how does a revamp like Hyperdimension Neptunia Re:Birth3: V Generation stand against the original? It continues to demonstrate how far along the series has come and while giving the promise of hope as to how much further it can keep progressing.


The 40 Worst Video Game Covers Ever: Part 1 - Gaming Thoughts

Back before all of us were on the internet watching trailers, flipping through screenshots and reading advance reviews, we did not always have a lot to go on when trying to decide whether or not we were going to buy a game. Sometimes magazines had previews, but most of the time we were left to study the front and the back of the box. The front, which should be a selling point that makes you interested to play the game within, has many times turned into something that was the complete opposite.

Whispering Willows to have releases on multiple platforms

Whispering Willows is one of those titles that most people sadly did not pay a lot of attention to when it released on PC, despite solid reviews. That was a shame, because as PY noted in his review, this horror/adventure title was very well done and deserved notice. This makes us happy to see that Whispering Willows will be coming to a broader audience soon.


Tecmo's Deception: Invitation to Darkness - Retro Reflections

I have long been a big fan of Tecmo's Deception: Invitation to Darkness. Despite having one of the more unusual titles of its day (more often than not, people I knew who played this simply referred to it as Deception), but more than that it was a unique game both in the role you played and the mechanics.


Memorable Music in Gaming #8

We have a very car-heavy theme with most of these games this week. As always, we love to hear feedback on titles Hamza talks about in these Memorable Music articles, so let us know if you agree or not!

The upcoming Deception title will have a PSN Demo

There is no doubt that Deception is a quirky title that may not appeal to everyone (though the original game still ranks as one of my favorite PlayStation titles on the original console). For those of you on the fence about this game, Koei Tecmo as you covered with a playable demo.
