In a time when third-person action adventure games are increasingly common, a game needs to have something interesting to hold its own.
Today we're looking at Blades of Time.

Today we're doing something unusual and looking at the most recent of a series rather than tackling them in chronological order - LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.
This is one of the most modern games I've looked at on Game Memorial to date, and I've poured in dozens of hours since it debuted over the summer.

Few adventure games are set underwater where you're a dolphin - and this was a defining game in some ways: Ecco the Dolphin.
godboko got it first, I might have to make my clues a little harder again, hahaha!

Perhaps my clue was again a bit vague and a bit confusing. That said, there can't be many games featuring a red three-legged alien and a tall, orange alien.
It can't be anything other than ToeJam and Earl!

I didn't expect anyone to get today's game. Partly because my memory is faulty - it's not an over-the-shoulder game. It's purely third person, but worse than that it is almost utterly rubbish.
It is, Queen: The Eye.

Today we're taking a look at a quirky RTS game, called XIII Century.
The notion of a medieval battle RTS that has strategic consequences (more than just simple RTS techniques) intrigues me. Let's hope the game plays out.

Today's instalment of Game-A-Day is definitely a quirky one. There actually are surprisingly few games that begin with the letter V, but we'll what this V game brings.
Without much further ado, we're looking at Vessel.

Welcome to the next instalment of our journey through computer gaming. Today's entry is much acclaimed - declared one of the best indie games of 2011, and has a rather ironic twist to its title.
It is the oddly epic game Unepic!

Today on our journey, we're looking at the letter R, and with that we're taking a look at one of the Rayman games - specifically Rayman Origins.
I have to admit Rayman was one of those series of games that I somehow seem to have missed through the years, and slightly oddly, this particular game seems to be the most apt way to get into the series, by being a completing-the-circle for the series.

Day 14 brings us to 'N', and a title that seems to have caught attention in some parts of the world - Ninja Blade.
Before we begin...
I picked this game up from one of the indie bundles, and curiously enough I didn't actually know anything about it - normally I know a little something about a game before playing it, but not this. I couldn't even, immediately, figure out who published it for example.
