I decided to revisit this old favourite of mine to see if it held up. And it does!

The lines I always thought were gold haven't lost their lustre:

"I guess he's a knight or something"
"The only easy thing to do in Ghosts 'n Goblins is to die."
"You could call that a double whammy."

Muahaha.

Hahaha. And I appreciate your praise as much now as I did last decade! I bought an SNES Classic Edition recently, so guess what I get to play soon? Super Castlevania IV and Super Ghouls Ďn Ghosts! Iíll be using the level select cheat on the latter since the only easy thing to do in it, like the original, is to die!

What? I thought you said you were completely retired from playing games? Now you're buying 'new' systems?

Okay, did you sell off everything, like the 2600, original SNES, etc? Ebay I assume? And now the itch is back so you picked up the SNES mini?

Let me know how it is -- I was considering picking it up. The Playstation 1 mini is coming in December, but the list of games looks super weak. Mind you, the games I loved for that system weren't necessarily the obvious choices, but still. I hear that Battle Arena Toshinden is going to be on it. Really? I haven't heard that Symphony of the Night, Silent Hill or Street Fighter Alpha 3 will be included, so I'll likely count myself out.

I've got a PS4 still -- that's it. I got rid of my PS3 and Vita, and really, the PS4 is mostly gathering dust or being used as a glorified Netflix frontend while I primarily play indie games on Steam.

Whaaaat, I never said or at least didnít mean, such. I donít buy new video games but Iíll always have a heart for the games Iím familiar with and still enjoy playing them, whether itís an old Atari 2600 game or Cabelaís Dangerous Hunts for PS2. But in terms of buying and learning new games, no thank you. NES and SNES Classic Edition are plug n plays so they are no hassle and relatively cheap and have tons of games I know and still enjoy, so heck yeah on things like that. All my old systems are gathering dust at my dadís and Iíll likely sell those one day. But I also have a Retron 3 unused, so Iíll probably bring them all down to my place soon so Iíll have for the future.

I want my daughter and other future child to experience the games I grew up loving so much, so thatís another reason to keep them around awhile. Already introduced her to some of the cartoons I loved lol. Oh, and my wife likes playing the old Marioís and I like her watching me show off playing the games at times. I highly recommend both NES and SNES ones, although the NES one seemed to have a controller where the B button wasnít perfect...so I bought a replacement controller at Walmart for cheap.

Wow, I didnít know about the PlayStation Classic thatís coming up. I looked up the list of games on Wikipedia and itís trash...no Crash Bandicoot, no Twisted Metal 2, etc, bleh. I hope they make an N64 Classic, Iíll keep my eye out for that! A Game Boy one would rock too. I have the Sega one, have had it for several years. Now you know how I love compilations. And hey, you know I always have to have my Super Metroid, Mega Man 2, and SOR2 fix at times!
