Why i didn't buy Skyrim

Chris Sims nails it. Every Elder Scrolls game i've played winds up like this. It starts off feeling like you're in this vast world, and after playing for weeks and weeks you're like "is it over soon?" and "another side quest?".

That said, i'll probably wind up getting this game when it's on clearance.

There's always Peng

Deadspace: There's always Peng

Not to be confused with Buster Brother's alternate title.

Bobbling the record straight

This was Bubble Bobble. Only one person in the world disputes this.

Bubble Bobble

This next game, featuring the same characters as Bubble Bobble, was called Puzzle Bobble in Japan, but when it came to the US and Europe it was renamed, inexplicably, Bust-A-Move. It also had an early working title of Bubble Buster.

Puzzle Bobble/Bust-A-Move

The following game was called Bust-A-Move in Japan, but outside of Japan it had to be renamed Bust-A-Groove since Puzzle Bobble was already being called Bust-A-Move.


Finally, and not really relevant, the game below was called Buster Brothers. It has an alternate title of "Pang".

Buster Brothers

Every one of the above games has spawned sequels which retain the naming convention based on the country.

This has been an overview of your various similarly named bubble- and move-busting games. You may now carry on with your life.
