Lightgun adventures: Dino Stalker (PS2)

American WW2 pilot ends up in a timewarp, fighting off dinosaurs while a mysterious (read: quiet) voice in a wristwatch tells the pilot what to do and where to go while feeding him guns and ammo… and that’s just the set up for Dino Stalker, aka Gun Survivor 3: Dino Crisis.

Lightgun adventures: Time Crisis 2 (PS2)

Apologies for being slow to bring out a new post, I’ve had work and stuffs but here I am and here we go: lightgun games. I’ve always enjoyed the lightgun genre – be that at my local arcade with the House of the Dead games and Time Crisis series, or on the Wii with (more) House of the Dead and Ghost Squad. But the PS2’s G-Con 2 and its PS1 predecessor, the G-Con 45, have seriously rekindled my passion for this genre. Arcades are all too rare and the Wiimote, lovely as it is, is not as satisfying to handle as the G-Con controllers. (It is a lot more versatile, but that’s besides the point.) So, I hope you enjoy what will be a regular series, with upcoming posts on Dino Stalker and Guncom 2, aka Death Crimson XO, both for PS2. After those two games I’m utterly flexible, so if you have any suggestions/recommendations please drop a comment below. Right now the list of potentials consists of Vampire Night, Virtua Cop: Elite Edition, Time Crisis 3, Crisis Zone, Gunfighter II: Revenge of Jesse James and the Point Blank games on PS1. But enough talk, ON WITH TIME CRISIS 2!! Continue reading
