Re: Die Hard (NES)

Ignore a certain "Nerd" review this game is good. It was really hard-pressed to make the game look all that bad. Die Hard is very ambitious for an NES movie license, impressive even with a guy swearing at it between swigs of Rolling Rock. Not even on the same planet as all those LJN throw...

Re: Utada Hikaru music discussion

I dislike JRPGs, anime, and teenagers, so a JRPG about anime teenagers is pretty far off my radar.

Haven't played any of them, not particularly interested. I'll give the music a shot, though.

I'm really not. Deep River is about as far from my idea of the genre as possible while still technically being a pop album from Japan. I tend to think of her as more of a soul singer, honestly.

Re: Utada Hikaru music discussion

And related to her music, how well does Sakura Drops fit with Octopath Traveler via my AMV, does it give a Kingdom Hearts vibe or not really? The Kingdom Hearts song barely even sounds like her in the first place, so a more tasteful and distinctive song isn't going to remind me of the game. I'm not...

Re: Utada Hikaru music discussion

I love Deep River, but none of her other albums come close. Ultra Blue seems to be underrated, though; it's probably my favorite of the rest. Not interested in her English stuff.

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Season

What does everyone think of Adore ? I have a very good friend who loves the Pumpkins but despises that album. After I got over the fact that there were no heavy guitar parts I began to realize how memorable a lot of the songs were and I put the album just behind Siamese Dream and Melancholy persona...

Re: Smashing Pumpkins Season

There is something autumnal about them beyond the name. Maybe it's just the romanticism; fall is a very romanticized season. I'm not much of a fan, but I do like Gish and Pisces Iscariot . Edit: Zwan too. I wish that project had held together longer; it's probably the best thing that Billy Corgan di...

Re: 2019/10/2: Super Nintendo: Power Instinct, Frogger

Good reviews, and yes SNES Frogger is an interesting example of same name different game version back when console differences where obvious What does the hardware have to do with the choice between releasing a straight port and a remake? They're completely different projects that could just as wel...

The Atari game was reviewed almost 20 (!) years ago. A revisit would probably be more charitable.
