30 Day Game Challenge # 30 – My Favourite Game From My Country

Well, welcome to the very last day of the 30 day game challenge. It’s been a great series and it brought up a lot of memories from my childhood, both good and bad (ahem, Pac-Man World). I hope you enjoyed it as well!

But, before we end this series we have one more game to show you of course. Now, I don’t actually know any games that have been developed or released by a Belgian developer. So I chose the next best thing, a game from a neighbouring country, The Netherlands.

I chose KillZone on the PS2 for this day. The game was released by Guerilla Games if I remember correctly, and it was my favourite FPS back in the PlayStation 2 days. I’m sure you’ve played it already so you know what I’m talking about. And if you haven’t played it before than why the hell are you still here? Go to a shop and buy it! Also, while you’re there … pick up KillZone 2 and 3 as well!

Anyway, that concludes the 30 day game challenge. But don’t worry, there will be plenty more content coming up!

30 Day Game Challenge # 22 – Game That I Never Finished

Well, this is one from a pretty extensive list of games that I never finished, some to my regret others not so much. One that I don’t regret that I didn’t finish it is Hitman: Blood Money. this is the first Hitman game I ever bought, and I must say it looked quite appealing playing Agent 47, a professional assassin, but it turned out quite differently. You see, I’m not a very stealthy type of person. I prefer running into the room guns blazing, which is not a good choice in Hitman: Blood Money. Stealth and cunning is key in this game, and it just isn’t me. So the result is that I played a couple of missions only to condemn the game to the deep reaches of my cupboard. Haters gonna hate I guess!

30 Day Game Challenge # 17 – Favourite Game Based On A Movie

Hi and welcome to day 17 of the 30 day game challenge here on The Grumbler! Today’s topic: My favourite game based on a movie. Well, I really love The Matrix: Path of Neo. Obviously, this game is based on The Matrix trilogy, and that needs no further explanation really.

The Matrix: Path of Neo is the second game based on The Matrix trilogy after ‘Enter The Matrix’. You play the game from the point of view of ‘The One’, also known as Neo or Mr. Anderson. The game is loosely based on the movies, with added missions/levels to lengthen the game and add to the story.

Naturally, all the important scenes from the movies are in the game as are all the ‘I know Kung Fu’ and ‘Guns, lots of guns’ parts. You know what I’m talking about. Naturally, all the actors from the movies are doing the voice acting. The signature Matrix sound effects and music aren’t missing either!

Overall, a fun game for any fan of the movies. If you haven’t played it yet, go find it on Ebay or in some used games shop.

Join us tomorrow for day 18!

30 Day Game Challenge # 16 – Game I could Play Over and Over again

Hello and welcome to day 16 of the 30 day game challenge! Today’s topic: the game I could play over and over and over and over and over again … you get the point. The game I chose is Jak 3 on the ps2. I absolutely love the Jak and Daxter series, but this is the only game in the series that I can play over and over again. Why you ask? Well, I’ll tell you!

Daxter’s humour, the darker atmosphere, riding around in sandbuggies, huge ass metalheads (the monsters, not people) and the dark and light powers. Oh and the much anticipated revealing of the precursors (which made me laugh so hard).

Give it a try if you haven’t already!

Join us tomorrow for day 17.

30 Day Game Challenge # 9 – My Favourite Racing Game

Well, this is another pretty easy one. My favourite racing game to date has to be Need For Speed: Underground. The game released back in the day when I was into watching The Fast & The Furious and I was in love with the Nissan Skyline. I absolutely loved the fact that you were able to fully tune and customize your car. The races itself were fairly fun although the amount of different tracks was fairly limited in my view. Most of them were just variations of the same track and background, or just the same one in reverse. Nevertheless I had great fun playing this game when I was younger so this absolutely deserved its place in the 30 day game challenge.

Join us again tomorrow for day 10!

30 Day Game Challenge # 4 – My Favourite Fighting Game

Well, this one is pretty easy. My favourite fighting game by far is Dragonball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3. The reason for this is because I’m a big Dragonball Z fan and used to watch it when I was younger. The more than 150 playable characters and diverse environments that are partially destroyable coupled with the well-known moves from the series make this my favourite fighting game.
