The First Levels of Sonic Games
Have watched a great Sonic related video on youtube by user Super Bunnyhop, whose narration floats like a paper boat on calm waters, smoothly and quite satisfying to experience, very knowledgeable, quite an extnsive vocanulary, and you just know what he talks about in every segment of this video, you just must watch it to sexperience it. I cannot embed said video, so copy it and enjoy.
revisiting the SNES classic RPG
Since I am playing Legend of Mana I got nostalgic and decided to start a new game on Secret of Mana. As I play through I get this feeling that is a bit incomplete, after reading that it had stuff cut from it before release I found out this game at first was going to be in CD format after Nintendo was trying to cut a deal to create a CD add-on like Sega did but decided not to instead forming a deal with Phillips (something they regret doing in the long run I'm sure.) so this may why it feels this way, but is still very enjoyable, nostalgic, and full of high, colorful fantasy.
Since the remake is out for PS4 I can tell you I am celebrating said release as well by playing the original.
Made a new account at Steam
I have now joined Steam although I am not doing much in it, will add some moneys later to check what games I can check out (I would probably get Shovel Knight to be honest.)
If you wish to join me or add me I am CptRetroBlue on it.
Adding games into my list.
Hello fellow gamers, just adding a blog letting you all know I started adding games to my videogame list on this site. I will check back to more games I had forgotten to add and edit my current lists.
Meanwhile check what games I have and compare it to your lists if you wish, I am curious to see how many here have the same taste in games as I do. ;)
Videogame cartoons that didn't made the cut
I watched Bubsy's pilot on TV when it aired in the late 90s. That wasn't a pleasant memory. I see after years since it dissapointing after one episode many still abhor it, often pointing out it's infamous phrase which happened to be the title of said pilot. I hear talk on bringing Bubsy back in Videogames, let's hope an animated series isn't in their minds this time. Another game which didn't survive the pilot debut was Battletoads, while not as atrocious, is quite badly made.
Rediscovering Atari 2600 gaming
Was able to boot up an Atari 2600 Emulator to play every other game I remember when I was a kid, plus those which never made it into compilations and are so much fun. It's great to note how some titles had incredible graphic designs for its time.
Exploring the Gameboy titles which I never got a chance due to never owned said system in my youth. Final Fantasy Legend is a title which is the first in the SaGa series, the reason why is so different to any FF title that was out then. It's quite interesting that you don't earn exp based on enemies killed but rather get better on stats instead.
