METAL JESUS ROCKS!: The Dirty 30

The life of a retrogames enthusiast is no easy one. In the jungle that is modern-day vintage collecting, the digital connoisseur must remain ever vigilant in his pursuit of rare game, lest he be sniped by a lurking competitor. The thrill of the hunt! The agony of being the second craigslist respondent.

But if you can't be a game cha... ahem...a game pursuer, you can still enjoy the hunt vicariously thanks to Metal Jesus. He's been maintaining his usual feverish pace of acquisition, adding no less than 30 new titles in recent weeks. SCORE! (Or 1.5 score, to be exact.)

It's time for a rapid-fire barrage of mini reviews, with a bonus glimpse into some of MJ's musical predilections. Queue up some Porcupine Tree on your iPod, then check out this week's episode of METAL JESUS ROCKS!:




For more game collecting goodness, check out our in-house "Share Your Collection" thread here. It's a great place to peruse other members' nostalgic pieces or show off your own favorite gaming collectibles and recent pickups.

Oh and also, I thought The Family Guy Game was great.

I bought that Family Guy game because you mentioned it to me a while ago. Getting mixed feedback from folks about it, but I plan on giving it a shot soon to make up my own mind.

Also, Porcupine Tree FTW. If you haven't heard their Stupid Dream, In Absentia & Deadwing albums... they are required for Dream Theater/ Opeth fans.

If you're a fan of the show, then I don't see how you couldn't love it. But if you couldn't care less about Seth Macfarlane's humor, then it's just a mediocre collection of three loosely coupled games: a beat'em up, a 3D platformer, and a stealth action.

Minor Spoiler Alert: My favorite laugh-out-loud moment from the game is where you (as Peter) face off against the Black Knight. At the start of the fight, Peter is puzzled as to why he won't say anything, but then gradually goes off onto a rant about how Will Ferrell couldn't be bothered to spend five minutes recording dialog for the game. Probably my all-time-favorite fourth-wall breaking moment in a game ever. (Followed closely by the embedded advertisement for Space Quest in King's Quest II.)

That's the thing about creative types like Seth McFarlane & even the South Park dudes.... If they really want you to do something for their show, you probably should because you will just end up being in it anyway...one way or another!

That sounds hilarious. I'll probably love it!

You got a gem in Tyrants. My brother and I spent alot of time after school upgading our sling shot using cavemen into the space age. Wish I could play it again. Looking forward to a review of that. Keep on rocking Metal Jesus.

Ok those were really random games. Great reviews covering otherwise mediocre garbage.
