Forgotten Ball

A member of the Retro Gamer forum (retrojc) has been working for a while now on a video game called Forgotten Ball.

The game has been coming along nicely but retrojc now needs your backing to be able to get the game across the finish line, therefore he has launched a Kickstarter campaign to try and raise £1,800 to be able to cross that line and release the game.


Backing can be from as little as £1 (to be a supporter and credited on website) up to £60 which includes digital copies of the game and the chance to design an area. There was also a £200 package but this has gone which tells you about how people are backing the game.

At time of writing the campaign is up to £1,575 with just 29 hours to go so come on people, dig into those pockets and pledge as little as £1 or £3 to help retrojc reach that goal.

The kickstarter campaign can be found here.

Arkham Knight

Today the third and final Batman game to be developed by Rocksteady was announced and what an announcement it was.

Featuring the return of Scarecrow (as the big bad), Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, Arkham Knight will be bigger than Arkham City and will this time round allow you to drive the Batmobile.

Yes, you read that right, drive the Batmobile.

I for one am excited about this as Arkham Asylum is a fantastic game and with City being up there as well this is already shaping up to be a worthy ending to the trilogy.

Nothing for the second month in a row.

Bit of a barren run at the moment.

Completed Games January 2014

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga - DS

A game that I've completed every Christmas since the O/H gave it to me as a gift a couple of years ago and one that I still enjoy playing.

LSW incorporates all of the current six Star Wars films and includes a lot of characters from guards and droids to Jedi masters and Sith lords and it's fun to see all of these well known characters brought to life in Lego form.

LSW was my first Lego game and I loved playing it straight away with it's comedy cut scenes and varied levels as well as the vast amount of collectables and mini-games. There are a lot of things to enjoy and yes, whilst the main game is very easy in that you cannot die some of the collectable are tough to find and get and this is where for me the Lego games really excel.

Round up of 2013 completed games.

The full list of games that I completed in 2013 is as follows:

Batman: Arkham City - 360
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance - 360
Mirror's Edge - 360
Stranglehold - 360
The Conduit 2 - Wii
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time - GameCube
Darksiders - 360
The Hardy Boys Treasure on the Tracks - DS
Warioware: Touched - DS
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - DS
Tomb Raider - 360
TMNT -Arcade
Big Bang Mini - DS
Prey - 360
From Russia With Love - GameCube
Sunset Riders - Arcade
Dragon Quest: Chapters of the Chosen - DS

A drop from the last couple of years with just 17 games completed though all of them have never been completed before. A lot more 360 games completed this year though and even a couple of classic arcade machines which was very pleasing.

Overall it was disappointing to complete so few games and I didn't think that the line-up was as strong as last year but there were still some gems in there.

Completed Games December 2013

Dragon Quest: Chapters of the Chosen - DS

Unlike Dragon Quest IX where I've taken a break from constantly losing to the final boss I did manage to complete Chapters of the Chosen and an enjoyable game it was.

There are five chapters and a prologue with the prologue and final chapter being for the hero and the other four being for characters who will eventually join the hero for the final battle. It's an interesting concept as you really get to know and enjoy the characters before they all meet.

The game is shorter and easier than DQIX but that is not off putting in the slightest and whilst there are hardly any side quests in this one it's still a fun and enjoyable game.

December 2013 Purchases

Three buys and a present in December. 

Resident Evil 5 and Tom Clancy: Vegas were picked up in the Game sale and after picking up Resident Evil 6 in November 5 completes my main series collection. Again, I know it gets slated, especially against the fantastic number 4 but I still would like to play it. I own the Tom Clancy games for the Cube and thought I would give this a shot for the price that I paid.

Shadows of the Damned is a game that I've been after for a while and I nearly bought it just days before I did. Luckily I waited as I ended up buying it for half the price that I nearly paid.

Finally, Bloody Roar is one of the games on my Cube list and my friend Megamixer kindly sent it to me over the Christmas period as a present, thanks for that.
