It was this past year that I finally got around to playing all four games of the Sly Cooper series, a series I fell in love with, in fact, within the first hour. The whole stealth gameplay was very new to me, and I also greatly enjoyed the characters. One other area where this game really shines is its locations. You see, the Sly Cooper universe takes place in a world very similar to Earth, except it is populated by anthropomorphic animals rather than people, a fact I found quite entertaining indeed. And so, to celebrate a new favorite series of mine, this list is dedicated to my six favorite locations in the Sly Cooper series. Continue reading Listmas 2016: Top 6 Locations in Sly Cooper

Now that the PS4 has finally joined my gaming family, I have begun the all-important task of acquiring a collection of games to accompany it. What good is a shiny new console without games, after all? Thus far, the PS4 section of my gaming shelf consists only of the Ratchet & Clank remake and Uncharted 4, which is a sad sight indeed. Fortunately, with Christmas coming up, I might just be able to do something about it. And so, without further ado, a delightful list containing the potential games I might add to my PS4’s library (even if some of them are nowhere near being released). Continue reading Listmas 2016: Games to Potentially Pad my PS4 Library
December is here and that wonderful holiday season feel has come along for the ride! It may be a little early, but I’m already feeling the need to party! Hmm…putting together a real party takes time though, so how about some Mario Party instead? Any takers? Anyone? …Ah well. I’ve long been a fan of the Mario Party games, the N64 versions especially. I don’t know if it’s simple nostalgia or not, but there’s just something about the way these games played that still elevates them above the later entries in my book. Maybe it’s the way the boards always managed to throw wrenches into a games’ outcome. Maybe it’s the simpler game play they offer. Or perhaps it’s that their mini-games are still a blast to play, and the following five are the very best! Continue reading Listmas 2016: Mario Party’s 5 Best Minigames
