  • The Saturn: Sega’s Greatest Console

    Ahhh the Sega Saturn. My beloved, underappreciated 32-bit Sega Saturn. In time, it would become the first truly successful CD based gaming console to market, although not without its growing pains. Rushed to stores just a few weeks ahead of its rival, the Sony PlayStation, the Japanese Saturn was released on November 22nd, 1994. Following […]

  • The Sony PSP Launch Guide (Part 2)

    Gretzky NHL Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment America Genre: Sports Release: Launch Title With the hockey season itself still in a will-they-won’t-they-play situation (except for the UK national league, which is still going song, and seeing a lot of big-mane talent coming over from the NHL in search of a game), it seems that the PSP […]

  • Inside Pulse Games 2004 Year End Awards

    2004. It feels very different from the year before. Just last year, the Kliq was complaining about what a horrible year for gaming it was. We had Disgaea, Ikaruga, Pokemon Channel, a new Panzer Dragoon…and well, that was really it. 2003 made us all worry that gaming was starting to suck. But 2004 was a […]

  • Inside Pulse Games 2004 Year End Awards (Page 2)

    BEST TACTICAL RPG Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon (GBA) Not really a surprise here. Considering Shining Force has and always will be the measuring stick for tactical RPG’s since 1992, it’s not hard to see why the re-release won this award. Shining Force gives you everything you could want in a Tactical RPG. […]

  • Inside Pulse Games 2004 Year End Awards (Page 3)

    “Well. At least the choices are better than last year. Thank god.” The Reader’s Choice Awards When compared with 2003, the gap between what the Kliq feels and the readers feel has come closer together than ever. Perhaps the true quality titles of 2004 are shining so brightly that it’s easy to see them. Or […]

  • The Nintendo DS Launch Guide

    The Nintendo DS Launch Guide Oh Nintendo, implicitly you take us back. I’m not too sure if it’s intentional, but for a person whose age lies way outside the target marketing boundaries laid down for Pokemon, it seems like only yesterday I was playing with what was the DS of it’s day: the immortal and […]

  • THE TRIBUNAL: Mortal Kombat: Deception (XB, PS2)

    Mortal Kombat: Deception has caused quite the stir in the gaming community with reviews from various journalist outlets touting the game as either phenomenal or mediocre.
