Since my previous update we’ve taken this ‘Alan & Pete Play’ thing a lot more seriously, and have uploaded a few more videos of us generally arsing about on both Dead Island and more recently Grand Theft Auto Online.  In the former we attempt to edge ever closer to completing the game (spoiler: we don’t) and invariably get torn apart by zombies, and in the latter we try everything from evading the police to trying to get a jetski down a narrow river.

Alan & Pete Play – Dead Island

This is the first in what will hopefully be a series of ‘Alan & Pete Play…’ videos. We have a lot of fun playing video games and wanted to share the experiences we have, particularly as the results vary from hilarious to terrible…

Gaming Under The Radar – Shadows of The Damned

For the next part of Gaming Under The Radar I decided to go with Shadows of The Damned, a third-person shooter resulting from a collaboration between Goichi Suda (No More Heroes, Killer7) and Shinji Makami (Resident Evil, Devil May Cry).  The game shares a lot of similarities to resident Evil 4 in terms of gameplay, as you follow demon hunter Garcia Hotspur into the depths of the underworld to save his true love in a humorous and gory adventure.

Despite the pedigree of its producers and other established names in the gaming industry (composer Akira Yamaoka for example, famous for his work on the Silent Hill franchise) the game sold very poorly, with only about 50,000 units being sold in North America in the weeks after its release.  It’s hard to understand why as the following review will hopefully explain.

Gaming Under The Radar – Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

 

As a means of reviewing old-ish and not well known games, the purpose of this post (and others to come) is to share with you those games that slip under the proverbial radar – for all the Call of Duties, Forza and Fifa’s there are many other quality titles that are overlooked for a variety of reasons, so hopefully this will give you an insight into those titles.

We’ll start with Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, a game that was released in late February 2010.  It’s a kart racer similar to the likes of Mario Kart and Crash Team Racing featuring various characters from many Sega franchises, with an array of weaponry and tracks to use and explore.

Gaming/Anime T-Shirts

Firstly, apologies for the lack of updates on this site, unfortunately new job commitments have made it difficult to do… much of anything really.

What I have been doing in my spare time is creating a few gaming and anime related t-shirts.  I’ve always wanted to own these sort of t-shirts but as I’m rapidly approaching my late 20’s I can’t help but feel I’d be embarrassed by wearing an outright Gears of War or Dragon Age kind of thing, so what I decided to do was create a few of my own that (in my opinion at least) look pretty snazzy but at the same time only the most die-hard of fans will recognise.
