Free Play: Tornado Outbreak

After finding the game for just a dollar, I decided to give it a spin.

If more games were this cheap and this good, I don’t think I’d ever leave the house!

Free Play: Crash Team Racing

With plenty of influence from Diddy Kong Racing, Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot took to the kart racing genre on the PS1 with CTR: Crash Team Racing. I had plenty of chances to play the game when it first came out but somehow never managed to get behind the wheel until 2013, and my experiences we’re not bad at all. The game holds up fairly well, but with so many other options out there to feed your racing needs it’s not likely I’ll be racing with Crash and the crew any time soon.

Free Play – Spyborgs

Free Play is back! Honestly I’ve been recording these videos for months now but haven’t gotten around to finally finishing one until now. What I mean is there should be a steady stream of content from now on.

Spyborgs was a completely random Wii game that I picked up that turned out to be a true hidden gem. The gameplay was great, the co-op decent, and the visuals and production top notch for the Wii. Check out the video to see Spyborgs in action, and witness the first Free Play game I actually want to keep playing!

Free Play – Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure

Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure CoverTwo things I didn’t know about this game: 1) It actually uses the same game engine as the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise, and 2) Activision held a contest to cast the kid skaters in the game! Not only is that a great way to involve the kid skater, but it’s a damn fine game engine as a backbone. While note as long lasting as, say, THPS3, DESA is a great skating game, and much better than Tony’s recent debacles. As a much more approachable version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater for a younger audience, Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure comes, surprisingly, recommended!

Free Play – Pop’n Music (Wii)

Pop'n Music CoverMy excitement was high when I saw this game sitting on the shelf. I thought to myself, “No way! Pop’n Music for only $4! And on the Wii, eh? That just might be able to work.”

Why I thought so highly of the Wii and its controls I do not know, because Pop’n Music this is not. Konami, why did you do this to me? Why didn’t you just release a true version of Pop’n Music here in the United States, with an official 9-Button controller and the actual gameplay the series is known for? I would have greatly played and praised that game, but instead I have this musical tragedy.

Free Play: Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel

I have been wanting to play Brotherhood of Steel for ages. I can’t even tell you how excited I was to finally sit down and play this sucker. Perhaps I should have just left my experience with the game as an imagination, because what I played was a mediocre action RPG set (sort of) in the Fallout universe. At least it has co-op, right?

Free Play: Gunbird 2

Free Play is a new series I’ve begun that takes a game and determines whether or not the game is worth your time. Each episode will spotlight one game on any system and in any genre. I’ll analyze the title, looking at the good parts and bad parts about it and judging if the game is worth it to play further. Best part for me, not only does this give me an exciting new feature to rant about, but it also lets me dig through my ever-growing catalog of games!

This episode features the Dreamcast shoot-em up, Gunbird 2.
