Gamer since 1984, and unashamed. Fuck all that self-loathing noise.
It's a shame the other game is Xevious and not Pooyan.
I can't believe I spent 400 Microsoft Points on that piece of crap. Next to Joust, it's the worst thing I've ever downloaded off the Live Marketplace.
Damn you Gaming Media for labelling games like Double Dragon and Joust "classics"!!
This is great. Twice the HDD storage space of the 60 GB PS3 model, but $120 cheaper. And Sony's best defense against this threat is something along the lines of "Well... it.. it doesn't have the storage power of Bluray, a-and Microsoft is a hypocrite!!"
Today, I have founded a not-for-profit organization dubbed the Honest Gamers Pooyan Association (HGPA). Our goal: to raise awareness of Pooyan and provide content for neglected Pooyan database listings.
Thanks to the efforts of HGPA, the arcade listing for Pooyan has been enriched with screenshots, cover art, and a high score. Despite these steps forward, there is still more work to be done! There are other Pooyan listings on other consoles that need content like screenshots, cover art, high scores, fanfiction, and reviews.
Mario Bros. (Arcade) -

Can anyone bump me off the top?!
I watched The Wizard on DVD a couple of days ago. Shortly afterward, I found myself rushing to my favorite ROM site and downloading Double Dragon and Rad Racer. Now I understand Corey's astonishment at Jimmy getting 50,000 points in Double Dragon. After playing those games for a little bit, I beat Super Mario Bros. 3 by using the double-flute trick.
The only thing Nintendo's propaganda couldn't make me do was revisit Ninja Turtles. No force on the face of the Earth, not even nostalgia, can convince me to go through that Goddamned swimming area in stage 2 again.
The Wii doesn't seem as tough as the Gamecube. :(
