Start The Party – 60 Second Gamer Visual Podcast 03

Back in 2012 we captured gameplay for a Playstation Move game called Start The Party. This was originally intended to be a normal 60 second review with a podcast on the side. Then the project fell by the wayside and both the footage and podcast lay dormant on Simon’s computer for three years. Then in …

60 Second Gamer return trailer

Yes, 60 Second Gamer will be back on your computers and mobile devices from 08 January 2016 onwards! As if to prove the point, we released a teaser trailer stating as much yesterday. It’s short and to the point, but that’s what teasers are for, right? It’s worth pointing out at this time that the …

Wayne’s World – 60 Second Retro Gamer Ep54

I’ve always been a fan of the Wayne’s World movies. They’re infinitely quotable, have a surreal undercurrent in the same style as Airplane and they feature some rather good musicians. I should never be surprised at finding out that another popular licence has received a video game tie-in, but seriously – how does Wayne’s World …

60 Second Gamer – Episode 53 – Super Mario Bros (NES)

The podcast is available at www.randomstoat.com Apart from a brief dalliance with a tape-based Atari system at some point in the 80s, my first experience of video games was with the Nintendo Entertainment System. Much like everyone else, we owned Super Mario Bros, however our version was on the same cart as Duck Hunt. Cut …

60 Second Retro Gamer – Episode 52 – Babe (PS2)

As always, the podcast is available through iTunes or www.randomstoat.com Oh, where to begin. This is the game that caused Rich to have a breakdown, live during our podcast. As part of our efforts to play absolutely EVERY GAME EVER, we’ve played some bad games. There are a lot of really good games with fantastic …

60 Second Retro Gamer – Episode 51 – Lassie (PS2)

A podcast is also available at www.randomstoat.com or through iTunes. Blast know no limits when it comes to acquiring licences for well known franchises (see some of our other videos for more – and what’s worse is there’s a lot more we’ve yet to cover), so it should come as no surprise that in 2007 …

60 Second Gamer – Episode 50 – An American Tail (PS2)

Podcast available at www.randomstoat.com Yes, they even made a game based on An American Tail. Who are “they” you might ask? Obviously, it’s Blast Entertainment with another very cheap, very badly coded video game. I really do wonder what goes through their mind every time they purloin a new licence – Beverly Hills Cop? Sure, …

60 Second Retro Gamer – Episode 49 – Paddington Bear (PS2)

The video above is Ant’s review, the one below is our complete play through of the game, overdubbed with our podcast. For the record, in the intro sketch that really is the sound of Tesco Value bread hitting me in the face. For those of you not in the know, there’s a video games company …

60 Second Gamer – Episode 47 – Quantum of Solace (PS3/Xbox 360/PC)

Version reviewed is the PS3/Xbox 360/PC edition of the game. There are variations of the title with different features (and different developers) for PS2, Wii and the DS which we may review at a later date. I’ll admit right from the start that I’ve not played this one yet, so my witterings below are based …

60 Second Gamer – Episode 46 – Journey (PS3)

Release day review from 60 Second Gamer – a first and quite impressive in my book! I’ll keep this brief (full blog entry coming tomorrow, as I missed out an update over the weekend). I’ll be honest and admit I hadn’t heard about Journey up until the week of release. I’m a regular reader of …
