Obscure PC Engine Shumps Worth Revisiting

The PC Engine was a successful console in Japan that offered a diverse library of games. One popular category of games that the PC Engine thrived on was classic shooters, also known as “shumps”. Although the US market received some of these games with the TG16, many were not offered in the states. In this video, I take a glance at some of the more obscure and decent shumps the PC Engine had that we never got here in the states. Do you have a favorite obscure shooter?

The History of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. An action-adventure game set within a fantastical post-apocalypse, Enslaved charmed many people with its exciting combat and heartfelt story, but sold well under what most games of its genre typically boast upon its release, resulting in it quickly slipping under the radar for most mainstream gamers. Yet its development – which saw several famous Hollywood figures team up with Ninja Theory – served as an invaluable learning experience for the studio, teaching its staff lifelong lessons on how to engage players using narrative and gameplay in tandem, as well as how to craft deep and emotionally fulfilling characters within the medium’s limitations. It helped its creators transition from being a good video game developer, to a great one, and set them up to eventually become even better with its subsequent endeavors.

Sometimes, the destination is the most important part of video game development – while other times, the journey is paramount. With Ninja Theory’s third project, the latter proved more true than anything else.

This is the history of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.
