Something Crazy Happened: I Completed a Game. Rebel Galaxy Rocked

22 10 2016

Holy crap folks, I did something I almost never do: I played a game to completion. Not since Gears of War 2 (and never before), have I completed the main campaign/story line of a game. In fact, with most games I never play more than fifteen or twenty minutes before never playing them again. It’s both weird and cool to be saying that I have just completed Rebel Galaxy on the PlayStation 4. Actually, I did something bigger: I managed to complete every single Trophy (on XBOX they call them achievements), as well as the main story line. For me this is absolutely unheard of.

Rebel Galaxy is a space combat/piracy/trading/exploration game by the two person studio, Double Damage Games. To me the game feels like I’m Han Solo in something like the Firefly universe – a great combination. You start with a beat up old ship and a mission and go from there. As you gain credits you update your ship and load outs as needed/wanted. There is the main story line as well as countless side missions that earn you credit and gain you points with (or lose points with) various factions in the game depending on who you’re helping and who you’re blasting. You get to choose whether you want ally yourself on the side of the “good guys” (Citizens, the Militia and the Traders) or a Space Pirate. Admittedly it doesn’t have the deepest of story lines, and the game is played on a two dimensional field (a little weird for a space game), but damn it, this game is fun. Also, it’s only freakin’ twenty dollars, and if you have a PlayStation 4 and are a PlayStation Plus member, you may have it already, as it was the give away for Plus members in August, 2016. It might not be for everyone, but if you want to zip around space and blast enemy ships out of existence, then Rebel Galaxy might be for you. You can probably get through the game in about sixty hours, but I stretched it out because I was having such a good time that I didn’t want the fun to end. I say give it a try.

Recent Pick Up: Game Boy Advance And Mortal Kombat 4 For The Game Boy Color

8 04 2014

Went to one of a couple local flea markets here in Calgary last Sunday (April 6, 2014) and grabbed this Game Boy Advance and a copy of Mortal Kombat 4 for the Game Boy Color. Nothing fancy, but I did need an original Game Boy Advance since mine went missing several years ago, and as for the Mortal Kombat 4 cartridge… well, it was included. Got both of them for $20 Canadian.

So I finally managed to score a classic Mego 2-XL educational robot shaped 8-track playing toy. The device asks you questions, and you choose multiple choice answers, pushing the corresponding answer button. Simple but cool, I really wanted one of these when I was a kid…And now I have one!

Just me playing the great arcade game port of Space Fortress on the Bally Astrocade. The original arcade game was called Space Zap, something I couldn’t remember when I was recording the video.

Check out my video below:

To get a better idea how good this console was, check out the original arcade game in this video I found on Youtube:

Descent: The Forgotten Classic

9 09 2009

Found this article on the game, Descent. This game was a pioneering first person  imageshooter that gave you complete three dimensional movement. I used to play the crap out of this game against my uncle on Microsoft’s Gaming Zone (Pre- Live service).

Still playable if you know how to use DOSBOX, and you might be lucky to find the version released for the original Playstation (though it pales in comparison to the PC versions).

Awesome gem and a great article!
