Retro Saturdays Episode 15 :: Baldur’s Gate

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 28 April 2018, 12:54 pm
Games that defined a generation- such a title is hardly thrown around freely in the video game industry. One does not call a game generation defining without no reason. The 90s were a fabulous period for such titles. On the console side of things you had Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Metal Gear Solid, Goldeneye, […]

Retro Saturdays Episode 14 :: Rune

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 21 April 2018, 2:36 pm
Contrary to what people say, I enjoy a good action game as much as the next guy. While it is true that I have trouble enjoying a heavily scripted action game, when a game allows me to feel like a total badass and raise all kinds of hell, then I’m sold. This is why I […]

Retro Saturdays Episode 13 :: Arcanum- Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 14 April 2018, 5:58 pm
Readers of this column will no doubt know by now that I’m an absolute sucker for crpgs. Name all crpgs ever released since its inception in the 70’s and I can confidently say that I have played at least half of them. Ever since Fallout 2 blew me away at the age of 6, (hey, […]

Retro Saturdays Episode 12 :: Freedom Fighters

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 7 April 2018, 2:39 pm
Another weekend, another Retro article. Too many games to cover, too little time. Over here at Indian Noob, the nostalgia goggles are very much rose tinted. It’s an absolute pleasure to go back and reminiscence all the sweet memories you had with a particular piece of digital media. After much brainstorming, I have decided to […]

Retro Saturdays Episode 11 :: Spiderman 2000

by IndianNoobon Saturday, 31 March 2018, 4:31 pm
The first memory that pops into my mind whenever I think of Spiderman 2000 is the helicopter chase level where I need to navigate my way up a building while parts of it blow up and tear down. So before I am able to write anything, let’s get that one out of the way. First […]

Retro Saturday Episode 10 :: Far Cry

by IndianNoobon Saturday, 24 March 2018, 6:24 pm
It’s not a well-known fact, but Far Cry was developed by Crytek (the same studio who made Crysis). In fact, Far Cry preceded Crysis and was developed by the studio to showcase the strength of its Crytek engine. 14 years on, we are on the cusp of Far Cry 5 releasing while Crytek and Crysis are […]

Retro Saturdays Episode 9 :: Hitman 2 – Silent Assassin

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 17 March 2018, 1:30 pm
There is a special place in my heart for stealth games. However, that doesn’t mean that I play them a lot . An avid reader of Retro Saturdays might recognize me as a hardcore oldschool rpg and fps fan. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy other genres too. Back in the 90’s then you were either a […]

Retro Saturdays Episode 8 :: Strife

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 10 March 2018, 2:23 pm
If you’re a fan of 90’s FPS like me,  then most of your time would have been spent aggressively slaughtering dozens and dozens of demons, aliens, zombies and all sorts of other-wordly creatures in Doom, Heretic, Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, Quake and Blood. Life was good. You didn’t ask the game questions as to […]

Retro Saturdays Episode 7 :: Legacy of Kain – Soul Reaver

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 3 March 2018, 12:18 pm
Imagine that you’re a dandy young lad coming home after winning the spelling bee contest in school. You have this big trophy with your name on it and present it to your father. What would he do? I reckon he’d give you a pat on the head at the very least with a pleasant smile, […]

Retro Saturdays Episode 6 :: Oddworld-Abe’s Oddysee

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 24 February 2018, 2:12 pm
Capitalism and global market are two phenomenon that took over the world by storm and dominates the society we live in today. Globalization has deep roots in today’s socio-economic culture and it has become so entangled with our lifestyle and media that separating one from another might seem like a futile method. We have enjoyed […]
