  • Kurenai (Red Ninja: End of Honor)

    Girls of Gaming was a spinoff of Play Magazine. It featured pin-ups of fictitious girls, mostly from video games and anime. In this example, we have Kurenai from a game called “Red Ninja: End of Honor” that was released in 2005 for the Xbox and PlayStation 2.

    I wasn’t familiar with this game and after a brief internet search I can see why. It generally got terrible reviews and was the only game produced by the studio that produced it. Some interesting ideas but poorly executed. Nevertheless, the main character, Kurenai, earned a spot in Girls of Gaming.

  • Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee (Xbox)

    Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee was originally released on the Gamecube in 2002. A year later it was released for the Xbox with additional enhancements and content.

    As a fighting game it was just pretty average. However, if you are looking to fight with giant monsters then this just may be the game for you. The plot of the game…well, the plot doesn’t really matter. The point is that you get to pick one monster and fight a bunch of other monsters.

    There was also a Game Boy Advance version that was released shortly after the Gamecube version in 2002 titled Godzilla: Domination! A PlayStation 2 version was also planned but was cancelled. I’m not sure what the reason for the cancellation was but I can only assume that sales were not what was hoped for on the other systems.

    This specific version of the game was released on April 16, 2003. There was originally going to be a PAL Xbox version in addition to the NA release, but it was later cancelled for unknown reasons.
