Title: Most badass music ever (IMHO, honestly!)
Posted: September 25, 2009 (10:06 PM)
Hello everyone.

So, perusing the HG logs, I see many of you post about music in your blogs! Specially Genj, who I added as a friend just to get his music updates.

Well, I am a Jazz lover myself, perhaps a rarity here... I'm not into not Kenny G, mind you, but more like "Miles in Montreux '73" Jazz. (an ultra-rare live performance where the master is booed off-stage, yet makes music I love)

At any rate, I'm listening right now to the song which I think is the most badass ever. It may not be the best ever, but it is unaparalleled in badass-ness, if you ask me.

This song is called "Champagne of Course", and is performed by Terje Rypdal, Bjørnar Andresen & Espen Rud in their 1970 album "Min Bul".

Yes, it is ultra-obscure... but damn is it badass! I'm sure Honestgamers is a fine place to search for brave souls who would dare to seek this song out, so that's why I have shared this tidibit of my life with you.

Game: Der Langrisser (SNES)
Posted: September 21, 2009 (03:36 PM)
I had quite a dream the other day. In it, I went to my local retailer and excitedly bought a copy of "Shining Force, Expanded Edition". However, after I arrived home and opened the box, I was quite disappointed to find out that what actually was inside the box was not the game I bought, but "Final Fantasy 3, Director's Cut: Play as Kefka" instead. I couldn't play the game I actually wanted to play, but still I had some fun after turning on the special "Castle Shikigami 2" mo...

Game: Buck Rogers: Matrix Cubed (Miscellaneous)
Posted: September 01, 2009 (11:39 AM)
"Buck Rogers: Matrix Cubed" is the sequel to "Countdown to Doomsday", but it doesn't really feel that way: it feels a lot more like an expansion pack than as a new game. Admittedly, it's an expansion far bigger than the original game, but the point is simple: you pretty much need to have experienced the first game in order to savor all of the spicy old-school epicness oozing forth from this title.

Game: Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday (Miscellaneous)

Buck Rogers: Countdown to doomsday was my favorite RPG in the age of the Mega Drive (AKA Sega Genesis), mostly because it was non-linear in a console where what few RPGs there were available followed the Japanese style of linear and character-centered gameplay. After more than 10 years, I discovered that the explanation behind this was that Buck Rogers first started as an American PC RPG that was pretty much like most American PC RPGs.

Game: My Hero (Sega Master System)

Video-Games can provide us with many interesting experiences, even in the remote times of the SMS. If I wanted to feel like the ultimate scourge of nature, I could play “Safari Hunt” and shoot down hundreds of wild animals. If I wanted to feel like a true master of Karate, in Body and Spirit, I could play “Black Belt”.

Game: Star Control 3 (Miscellaneous)

In a Bargain Bin somewhere I cannot remember, a copy of 'Star Control 3' was sitting idly. The box looked nice and the price was cheap, so I bought it even though I had never heard of it.

I'm sure it's not the case with everyone, but my experience with games made by Taito has not been very good. Well, at least my experience with their Genesis games.

Game: Third World War (Sega CD)

Strategy game players love nothing more than CONQUERING THE WORLD. In games like “Warlords” or “Birthright”, you set about conquering a fictional world. This is fun, but not not so much as conquering EARTH itself.

Game: Miracle Warriors: Seal of the Dark Lord (Sega Master System)
Posted: January 12, 2008 (03:14 PM)
I remember the first time I played Final Fantasy 2 (AKA FF4 in Japan) from start to finish. It was quite nice. One day I thought about playing the whole game again. But then, when I pressed 'Start', before I got control of Cecil & Kain (the heroes), I had to watch a several-minute-long intro. The Intro was interesting the first time, but not this time. I wanted to kill monsters ASAP, not see again the boring reasons that made Cecil start doubting his role as an army commander.

When D&D (and later AD&D) was invented, in the 70's, it was a game made for and by wargame enthusiasts. The 'father' of RPGs placed much importance on numbers and tables. This is probably one of the reasons that the first D&D forays into the PC were made a wargame company, Strategy Simulations Inc. (SSI).
