Welcome to what I hope is the first of many entries in The Gaming Notebook. In this blog, I will share my thoughts and impressions on various games. The point of this exercise is to reacquaint myself with some of the lesser played titles in my collection.
The main focus of this blog will be Jaguar gaming. I have been playing Jaguar since late 1994 and have a complete retail collection, the majority of post-JTS releases and many homebrews. At last count, this equates to 82 Jaguar games! That said, from time to time I might throw in a non-Jaguar title.
A few notes:
1) I will not be playing the games in chronological order. Instead, games will be selected randomly using Excel.
2) I will play each game featured for at least two hours. I feel that this is sufficient to get a good impression of the game. I have no doubt that I'll play some of these for much longer.
3) I don't intend to get into the minutiae of a game's history, development and contemporary reviews. Other platforms do a fantastic job at that. This is just my personal take on these games from a player's perspective.
4) Feel free to comment and share your own gameplay impressions. I only ask that you've actually played the game on real hardware.
That's all for now. I hope that you check in from time to time!
The first game to be featured will be: Bubsy In Fractured Furry Tales
