Listmas 2016: Top 6 Locations in Sly Cooper

It was this past year that I finally got around to playing all four games of the Sly Cooper series, a series I fell in love with, in fact, within the first hour.  The whole stealth gameplay was very new to me, and I also greatly enjoyed the characters.  One other area where this game…

YouTube Highlights: November 2016

Happy Thanksgiving! (Or, happy Thursday if Thanksgiving isn’t your thing.) Though it’s a holiday for us, we’re not taking a break from posting our monthly highlights from YouTube. If anything, we’re more than thankful for our subscribers and supporters there, and here…and everywhere. Thanks to you, you..and YOU! To everyone who’s motivated us to keep…

The Simple Pleasures of Exploration in Sly 4

When buying a house, they always say location is everything.  Never have I heard this applied to video games, however.  What people typically cite as being important to them in gaming is an engaging story or interesting characters, or simply good gameplay.  While I would agree that all of those are far more important than…

Unforgettable: Murray’s Geisha Dance from Sly 4

I haven’t done one of these posts in quite a while.  By now, I’ve played a lot of video games, and let me tell you, sometimes it feels like I’ve seen it all.  As a result, it is rare for something to happen in a game that really catches my attention, that’s so different or…

Newcomer Alert: The Completion of the Sly Collection

At long last, I have done it.  After getting 100% in the entire Sly Collection, including the mini games (they are not worth your time; I only played them to get my last few trophies), I can safely say I am the Sly series’ newest fan.  Before I get into my thoughts on the series…

Newcomer Alert: More Than Halfway Through Sly 3

Why, hello, everyone.  While I originally intended on writing about my thoughts halfway through my playthrough of Sly 3, this didn’t quite happen.  I am about 48% through the game, but I have clearly made it much closer to the end than I realized when I ended up back on Kaine Island where the prologue…

Newcomer Alert: Initial Thoughts on Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves

Two games from the original Sly Cooper trilogy down, one more to go.  That’s right, everyone, I have just started Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves.  I am writing this particular post two hours into the game rather than just the usual hour, and…I’m not quite sure what to say yet.  Okay, first off, this game…

Newcomer Alert: The Completion of Sly 2: Band of Thieves

I am now officially halfway through the Sly Cooper series!  I recently completed Sly 2: Band of Thieves and have gotten 100% both in the game itself and in collecting all of its lovely trophies.  If only these were real trophies, I’d have quite the collection by now.  Since my last update, I completed both…

Newcomer Alert: Halfway Through Sly 2: Band of Thieves

Well, I’m now 49% through Sly 2: Band of Thieves and have recently started chapter 5.  I explored a nightclub in Paris and defeated its owner, Dimitri the iguana (since when are iguanas purple?), the first member of the Klaww Gang (which I’m certain bears no relation to Klaww from Jak 1…).  I braved the…

Newcomer Alert: Initial Thoughts on Sly 2: Band of Thieves

Now that I’ve completed the very first Sly Cooper game, I can safely say the series is starting to grow on me, and it was with much excitement that I began the second game in the original trilogy, Sly 2: Band of Thieves.  I am currently an hour into the game, and though that may…

Newcomer Alert: The Completion of the First Sly Cooper

I’ve done it, I’ve completed my first Sly Cooper game (at a baffling 83%; I did get 100% of the PS3’s trophies for the game, however)!  I found all clue bottles and opened all safes.  I…never really used any of the extra moves I learned in those safes, but still.  It was a satisfying feat,…

Newcomer Alert: Halfway Through the First Sly Cooper

It’s time for my next Sly Cooper update, everyone, as I work my way through the Sly Collection on the PS3!  I’m now 53% through the first game, which seems like a perfect spot to update my thoughts.  Well, I have defeated Sir Raleigh the frog in Wales and Muggshot the bulldog in Mesa City,…
