A can't miss classic blast from the past.....
April 07, 2006

I was bored at work today, so I went to my carefully hidden emulation files I buried on my computer's hard drive and played through a bit of the NES RPG Legend of the Ghost Lion.

Hoo-boy, that game.....has its share of issues.

1. It's slow-paced and fugly.

2. You gain HP and MP, not by killing monsters, but by opening certain treasure chests in dungeons.

3. Dungeons are simplistic and tiny, perhaps to compensate for your lack of healing magic, which means you have to buy items to restore HP.

4. There aren't many monsters (and each palette is repeated 3-4 times like most NES RPGS). I entered a completely new region and have encountered ONE new monster (the Werewolf, which is a differently-colored Kobald). That makes me bored.

When a game makes you more bored than when you started, I would say it's Mandy Moore.
