Re: 2017/11/17: Sega CD: Revenge of the Ninja, Starblade

You might get a kick out of this game, critic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL9GyISJ2uU I wish there were more anarchistic oddities like Starblade. Console 3d was always one generation behind what they were trying to achieve. We could have had perfect wireframe driving simulations in 16 bit, and ...

Re: 2015/9/22: Super Nintendo: California Games II, Phalanx, Tinstar

"Heavy huh?" is the same as "purple cow", and other marketing terms all meaning the exact same thing. In a crowded field, try to find a way to only ever be compared to yourself. And that cover totally worked on me as a kid. The story of an epic space battle that was handed down f...

Re: 2017/10/28: Atari 2600: Guardian, Ikari Warriors

So, would Guardian be a good starter game for anyone we're trying to share our hobby with, or at all decent for zen meditation? Also, how were Ikari Warriors, Klax, and Kung Fu Master able to bring an NES style experience home, while Double Dragon is nearly unplayable? Did they just run out of space...

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?
