Month: August 2012
As many Vita fans already know, August 28th marks the day that PS1 classics come to the Vita, and it’s kind of a big deal. I’ve been waiting for it for a while, because it’s going to allow me to play some of my old favourites on the go…actually, mainly because it’s going to give me a reason to charge my Vita and take it with me for a change.
That aside, I figured I’d put together a quick list of the top 5 PS1 classics to get for your PS Vita, along with their trailers. Anticipating these games again, it’s like being back in the past!

Here’s a “Community” TV show reference (for fans of the show, you’ll know what i’m saying, for non-fans, don’t worry I’ll get to my point): Remember on Community, just when the show got really awesome, they fired the creative mind behind it and replaced him with generic staff writers and you feared that the show would never be the same?

So, without further adieu – and in no specific order – here is my list of the worst movie tie-in games ever…after the jump.

With the remake of Total Recall coming out, I figured I’d take a look back at the NES game. It was released to tie in with the original movie, released in 1990, and, well, it was an interesting take on the franchise…and not in a good way.
Let’s get this out of the way: this game is awful, and for a number of reasons. First of all, the game didn’t look or sound like the movie. The soundtrack was upbeat and the visuals were generic and boring. Yeah, I know that the NES wasn’t exactly the most powerful system out there, but at least try! There were certain levels in the game that would claim to reference locations in the movies – like the Last Resort bar (remember the woman with 3 boobs?) – but none of these places actually looked anything like the movie sets. The Last Resort bar was…
