Posted under review, wii, nintendo, light gun


As I mentioned in a previous entry, I'm a huge fan of light-gun games and specifically such games on the Nintendo Wii, which carried the torch of light-gun games into the world of modern televisions.

I recently played through the Wii version of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon and I was absolutely blown away by how much fun I had with it. My expectations were very low going into the game, but the fact that I continued to play the game after completing the campaign demonstrates to me that there is a solid title here, and one that is sadly underrated and largely forgotten by the Wii community.

During the last episode, I once again suffered a humiliating defeat at the endcap of my enemy, the Budget Game Wall.  You know that thing, right?  No?  Well, this endcap (who is a complete jerk, mind you) used to sit on the end of the video game isle at my local toy store, displaying the unloved and unlovable from the NES, both old and new, at an attractive $20 price point.  But I wasn’t there on that fated day for game shopping, no.  My task was much simpler: get a functioning NES controller, one I ideally wouldn't have to share with my siblings.  And since I still had another six months (at least) before my SNES came out of layaway, I needed something help me play Final Fantasy and the string of rentals and loans that would follow.  But I had no idea how much a controller would cost, having misplaced my most current Toys 'R Us circular, so I brought all $40 of my lawn-mowing money. My mom gave me a knowing look at this act, but said nothing to stop my action.  It was fine, though: This was a utility trip, not an excuse to look at games, okay mom?.  There was no reason I was going to need all that cash, right?

Our fourth game of 2018, was the true definition of a "cult classic." In this month's Playcast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) discuss that notoriously bawdy, foul-mouthed, platforming, red squirrel as they breakdown Conker's Bad Fur Day.  Known more in collector circles for its high price, adult content, potty humor, and movie references, the guys ultimately put its gameplay to the test.  Is this early 3-D platformer satisfying, or does it ignite controller chucking frustrations in the boys?  Which version of the game (N64, Xbox [Live & Reloaded], or Xbox One [Rare Replay Collection]) do the guys recommend most?  And does the price of this game justify picking up a copy or throwing your current copy up for sale while the market is high?  The answer to these questions and may more in this @#$%& episode of the RF Generation Playcast. Don't miss it! 

Our 50th episode is NEXT and we want our listeners to send us an audio roast! Congrats, well wishes, and cheap shots are all welcome. Audio should be limited to under 2 minutes, so if you're interested, please contact singlebanana to find out how to send in your piece.  The submission deadline is June 1st.

Posted under Pinball, FarSight Studios, Zen Studios, Pinball Arcade, Pinball FX, no kidding Doom is a surprisingly addictive table


It is pretty amazing, when you think about it, that video games can present practically as many universes as our imaginations can conceptualize.  Race car drivers, ancient warriors, formless deities, abstract observers, mustachioed occasional-plumbers, the possibilities go on and on.  We tend to settle into comfortable niches, as is human nature, but really any medium so tethered to artistic expression can as open as our desire to explore.

Posted under review, video, PC, adventure, LucasArts



In 1995 LucasArts released an adventure game that was a little different from anything they had developed before.  It deals with motorcycles, mechanics and murder. It's Full Throttle! I teamed up with the Adventure Game Geek to give you two opinions for the price of one. We played the recent remastered version of the game, though do compare it to the original.

Posted under Project Xenon Valkyrie Plus, Roguelike, action platformer, 8 bit, indie game, game review, Diabolic Mind, Cowcat Games


Project Xenon Valkyrie+ is a new 8-bit styled, "Rogue-like" action platformer, developed by Diabolic Mind, and published by COWCAT Games. It is available on the PS4 and Xbox One digitally, on PC via Steam, and on the PS Vita digitally as well. For PS4 and PS Vita owners, the game has crossbuy as well, so that's a nice bonus for Sony hardware fans. PXV+ (as the game shall heretofore be known as) combines a "Rogue-like" random level generation aspect with traditional 8-bit art and aesthetics, albeit in a widescreen aspect ratio, with action platforming, traditional combat, and some interesting mechanics. The game has a lot going for it, but ends up being a bit less than the sum of its parts.

Posted under RF Cinema, Rampage, movies, discussion


Hello, fine movie-lovers! Today we continue our look at recent blockbuster game movies with the second of three for the year, Rampage. Starring Dwayne "Walking Slab of Meat" Johnson and....a bunch of other people, it tries to do what the Battleship movie did and make a film out of a game that really had very little plot to speak of. Does it succeed where Battleship spectacularly failed? Let's find out.

Posted under Avengers



With Avengers: Infinity War still very fresh in my mind, as well as my attachment to most of the characters involved in the MCU, I have no choice but to write about super heroes to decompress after this film. I won't be talking about the movie directly so don't worry about any spoilers. I'm simply going to be writing about my favorite games starring a playable version of each character from Avengers: Infinity War.

Posted under Review, Action, Adventure, Hazelight, Story, EA, Cooperative


Back at E3 2017, a trailer for a game known as A Way Out was shown and, while it seemed to get little attention from most others, I was immediately intrigued.  Its promise of a cooperative experience like no other coupled with a premise that showed two inmates working together to escape from prison seemed like a match made in Heaven for myself and the friend that I later played the game with.  The trailer invoked shades of The Shawshank Redemption, a favorite of ours, and the idea of being able to play through a similar scenario together was too exciting to ignore.  With the game being released just recently, we were finally able to experience this adventure together, and we were not disappointed.

Get ready to blast off and attack the evil Bydo empire!

Do you like shoot-em-up games? I do! I'm a long-time fan of the genre, and have spent the better part of the last 20 years, or so, collecting as many of them as I can. While I have played and enjoyed many of these games, I have never felt like I got full enjoyment out of them, because I haven't engaged with other players to talk strategy, compare scores, or revel in the games themselves at the level I would like to. Now's my chance! I'm starting a new monthly series here at RF Generation, where we can play and discuss classic scrolling shooter games!

Join me for the stream of conciseness that is Neo's "A Brief Look At" series!

I was born in 1975 and spent my childhood in the 1980s. Now as an adult, I am a lover of 80's nostalgia. I am so excited to share this video series with you that is a unique and fun take on reliving my past. There is something so magical about seeing a toy or video game for the first time since childhood and having that "Oh, I remembered that!" feeling, and that is at the heart of this series. I hope you enjoy reliving my past with me!
