Re: 2017/10/15: Genesis: College Football USA '96, College Football USA '97

I've never played any serious sports sims, but for whatever reason, I love reading these series reviews. They're some of your best work - giving life to some of the most unjustly forgotten games out there.

Re: 2017/10/13: Turbografx-16: Ghouls 'N Ghosts

The only advice I can give is to plan your double jumps in advance, and play defensively, while looking for chances to be aggressive. It's all about knowing when you've got an opening. Also, the SNES game is the much harder sequel to this game, thanks to longer levels, new enemies with better shield...

Re: 2017/10/13: Turbografx-16: Ghouls 'N Ghosts

Definitive home version might be a bit much. There were better than arcade perfect ports released for later home systems, and they don't limit your continues. But yeah, visually, it's hard to go back to the Genesis port after playing this one. It alone would have justified the purchase of the Superg...

Re: 2017/3/8: Turbografx-16: Darius Plus (Japan), Hit the Ice

It used the extra horsepower to minimize sprite flicker.

Really, nothing special if you're used to modern games. Most emulators, legal or otherwise, throw that feature in as a default.

But at the time? It was awfully considerate of the developers to include that option.

Re: 2017/10/7: Intellivision: Thunder Castle, Mystic Castle

Batman for the original Gameboy, and Kid Dracula, both feature bats as shields. But you'd feel disappointed if they weren't helping you out. Thunder Castle is the rare game where there's no thematic explanation for their sudden good nature. Anyways, good reviews all around, critic - it really is sur...

Re: 2017/9/22: Jaguar: Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure

Other than the save feature, what makes this version least worst?

Is it just the graphics?

Re: Halloween Games?

How about Kid Dracula on the original Gameboy? It's essentially Castlevania done up in a cute Megaman style, which combines to really create a Halloween atmosphere.

I'd also recommend Super Mario Land 2, since one of the worlds is Halloween themed. But I'm not sure that's enough for this article?

Re: 2017/9/14: Playstation 4: Madden NFL 18

My favorite football game is still the Mattel handheld. Can team headshot sniper dots beat team inexpensive cat distraction? If we're talking anything that resembles an actual sport, it's Tecmo Super Bowl. But then again, the last football game I watched in its entirety was Flash Gordon vs. Ming's g...

Re: 2017/9/17: Xbox One: Final Fantasy XV

Is it really fair to rate a sandbox world by the narrative standards of a linear plot? The theme here is road trip, so the episodic, too many ideas and not enough clear resolution feel of it all, really feels right to me. And the high risk magic system feels like calling in an air strike. As for the...

Be fair. That's at least early PS2 quality. Look at all that texture smoothing and the excellent frame rate. Nobody's made out of visible triangles.
