Re: 2018/10/11: Genesis: Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi, Incredible Crash Test Dummies, The

Goldenband: I am SHOCKED to discover it's just "Crash Dummies" and not "Crash Test Dummies". You are probably correct that I am thinking of the band, but Crash Dummies just doesn't sound right! I'm surprised by this as well. "Incredible Crash Dummies" just sounds weird...

Re: 2018/10/11: Genesis: Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi, Incredible Crash Test Dummies, The

I love Shadow Dancer. I'm a fan of the other two Shinobi games on the system, but Shadow Dancer is the closest to a Genesis port of the original arcade game. It's a good time if you're just looking for some arcade action.

Re: Call of Duty Bops 4 50 gig day 1 shocker.

It would take me over 18 hours to download that patch at my internet speed.

I'll stick to NES games.

Re: Games so bad you have to shut it off

I played Baseball and Soccer for weekly contests on NintendoAge. Baseball is beyond awful, with no reason for anyone to play it now except for nostalgia. Soccer is just boring. But I don't care for sports games to begin with. I also can't stand black box Golf or any golf video games for that matter...

Re: Scariest game soundtracks?

The snow level music from the original Donkey Kong Country always sounded like horror movie music to me. Why did they make it so spooky?

Re: Games so bad you have to shut it off

I just thought of a few more NES games that I just can't sit down and play without shutting 'em off. And it may be tantamount to treason to even say it. But to me, some of those "Black Box" games are borderline unplayable. Specifically the sports titles. Base ball and Soccer, in particula...

Re: 2018/10/2: Playstation: Medievil II, Dracula: The Resurrection

I remember buying Medievil II back in the day because of a great review in a magazine and then being very disappointed. I recall the camera being really bad.

Re: Super Ghouls and Ghosts

I broke out my SNES Classic the other day and tried Super Ghouls and Ghosts. Now I'm a huge fan of Dark Souls and Bloodborne, so obviously a game being hard doesn't bother me. SG&G, though, is too hard! Unfairly hard! There's no strategy or skill here, it's just an avalanche of enemies designed...

Re: Back to School games?

I've never played it, but "Day Dreamin' Davey" is a weird NES RPG about a boy who keeps falling asleep at school and dreaming about adventures. The Angry Video Game Nerd did an episode about it.

Re: Most Disappointing Games?

For me it's always been Actraiser 2. I was SOOOO disappointed to finish the first side scrolling level and discover that they had eliminated the RPG element of the game, which was what put the original on a pedestal for me. Oh man, this was such a huge disappointment for me as well. I mean, if the ...
