I wonder if there is some universal peripheral that would work with most MAME light gun games.

 

A mouse.

380. Earth Defense Force 5
(2018, PS4)

Earth Defense Force 5 was released last week (in the US, it came out last year in JP) to great fanfare. Far and wide, gamers are hailing this as a worthy sequel to this longstanding popular series. In truth, EDF5 is more of a reboot, or it takes place in an alternate timeline, or perhaps even a gaiden. While at first it will seem familiar to EDF veterans, there are many key differences to previous games. The same four classes return from EDF4: the infantryman Ranger, the bombardier Air Raider, the busty rocketeer Wing Diver, and the walking tank Fencer.

This time around there are a few tweaks to make these classes play even better than before. Ranger can equip a few vehicles or utility items. Air Raider has time-based cooldowns for many of its weapons, making it useful in any situation now. Wing Diver can dash and change its energy core, allowing more control over the previous energy reserves that power its flight and weapons. Fencer has many more mobility options making it much less of a sloth on the battlefield. Duplicate weapon pickups can now result in weapons being upgraded, a welcome change that gives much more longevity to the low level weapons most people will be stuck with for a long time. Armor pickups are now shared with the other classes, although to a lesser degree, meaning those classes are not perpetually falling behind if you don't use them.

 

Returning are many of the giant insects (now called monsters), goofy dialog, passable graphics, and so on. The famous EDF hymn is no longer here though, and is replaced with a new song. There is also a noticeable lack of framerate slowdown which veteran players may miss. For frenzied multiplayer action, it don't get much better than this.

379. Super Mario Bros. 3
(1988, NES)


 

It was my brother's brithday, so the folks took us to Century 21 for him to pick out a game, and there we saw it, Mario with the tail holy shit just like in the magazine! On the way home we got a pizza at Original Pizza III B) shit was so lit, but all my brother and I wanted to do was play SMB3, my mom says we can't start playing anything till we clean ourselves up, so I go to take a shower and am rushing the fuck out of it and as I'm getting out, I slip and end up falling with all my weight landing on the sharp edge of the sink right under my sternum, I fell over into the tub and couldn't breathe. I'm sitting there gasping for air and honestly all I thought was "I can't die before I see Mario 3..."

My breathing came back pretty quick, and I got up and felt a bit shaky and dizzy, but I quickly snapped myself back together, got dressed and proceeded to.... rip the box apart and throw it away along with the manual :\

 

SMB3 was incredible, though. It was unreal how deep it went and how refined everything felt. The addition of the maps for each stage were so awesome, really felt like the world had life in it, and there were just enough NPCs and dialogue to give us a sense of purpose, and dude the first time we got to the airships I could feel us both shaking with anticipation and uncertainty, such an amazing experience.

We couldn't stop playing the game for months straight through to Christmas when we got some more amazing stuff, but that's another story!

So you could say a classic of giant bug shooting is being revived in a big way.

378. Adventures of Lolo
(1989, NES)

I didn't play this much as a kid. I think the day camp my parent's took me to in the Summer had it, but since all 20 or 30 of us had to share the NES, I usually chose Excite Bike or Mario 2 from their limited selection.

 

Fast-forward to high school, senior year. I only had three or four classes each day because I signed up for the work release program. Worst case, I got to leave school at, like, 11 AM. My schedule was Theatre Tech, English, Geometry, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays the special career development class that is required as part of the work release thing. I didn't even have to be to work until, like, 2 PM. I was such a fucking lazy student. 

 

Theatre Tech was a wonderful class that existed only for the year I took it. The five of us (I think it was only five) met in the small sound and lighting booth in the nice auditorium in between the middle and high schools. It was run by the band director/theatre director/jazz club director/several other things teacher. We would set up chairs, learn the literal ropes that controlled all the overhead lights and other props above the stage, all that sort of stuff. You wouldn't think it'd be enough to fill an entire class for a whole school year, would you?

 

Well, you'd be right. The teacher would leave us on our own for days at a time with little or nothing to do. So my classmate--cmy closest friend, having known him since 2nd grade with whom I originally bonded over video games when I was new in town--and I downloaded NESticle and some ROMs. One of them was Adventures of Lolo. It was a good balance for our group since it's a not-really-action-packed puzzle game. It could also be played relatively easily with just a keyboard. We took turns and all made suggestions about each puzzle and the best way to execute certain strategies.

 

Lots, and lots of trial and error with this series. I think NESticle was the first emulator I used that had save states, so we made it a point to save at each floor, but not each puzzle. Okay, I think maybe a few times when we hit a really difficult puzzle we would save it there out of sheer convenience, but not often. 

 

Even when the teacher found out, he really didn't care. He just told us to turn off the sound and be on the look-out for other faculty members who might come looking for him. 

 

I was unfortunately sick the day we beat the first game, but we proceeded to Lolo 2 the next day. I beat that and made it a little ways into 3 by the time graduation rolled around. The games are great and worth a  revisit! Maybe listen to other music when you do, though, because the loop will wear you down no matter how pleasant it is.

I thought I already covered SMB3, but that was just in my post about Donkey Kong. Kudos on not dying that day.
