#1396536 Games You've Recently Completed....

Posted by mooniniteG on 18 March 2019 - 11:25 PM

Disney's TaleSpin (NES) - This was the only Capcom/Disney game I hadn't played. Took a bit of time to get used to the funky mechanics and a few questionable hit boxes, but was a fun romp after that. I beat it with something like 18 lives left.

Shadow Dancer Genesis is better than the arcade version.

Updated Shinobi series rankings:

  • Shinobi (arcade)
  • Revenge of Shinobi
  • Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
  • Shadow Dancer (arcade)
  • Shadow Dancer (Genesis)
  • Shinobi Legions
  • Shinobi (3DS)

Legions is better than the 3DS game, so that's... something, I guess...? Honestly, I don't mind the digitized graphics or the soundtrack (which was entirely redone for PAL regions). The game even starts off completely innocuous. The first level doesn't feel really out of place with the series. Then the 2nd level has vertical scrolling with a bad camera and shit hitting you from offscreen. It leaves you with a bit of a bad taste in your mouth and it's all downhill from there.

 

There's no way anyone has legitimately beaten this game in the history of gaming. The level designs descend into maddening unfair territory. I used the level select cheat so I could play it over the course of a few nights, and by the time I reached the 7th level (out of 9), I started using the 99 lives code so I didn't have to restart at the start of the level after losing all of my lives. But I did "beat it" so my life is now objectively worse.

 

I really dug this song, probably because I listened to it a lot learning to not fall into the waters of Hong Kong(?) harbor:

 

 

I love the continuity issues of the main character drowning to death in-game even though the live action FMVs show him diving off a cliff and swimming into an underwater cave.

 

I do have a copy of Alex Kidd in Shinobi World ready to go next. I played a bit of the first level and it's already head and shoulders above Legions and 3DS.

I'd suggest Lee Trevino's Fighting Golf. Would be perfect in this style.

#1395754 What are you watching on netflix?

Posted by mooniniteG on 28 February 2019 - 12:55 AM

Close to finishing Assassination of Gianni Versace. Season 1 of American Crime Story (OJ Simpson) was surprisingly well done, but season 2 is phenomenal. And while I went into season 1 knowing about the OJ case to a degree (I was in 6th grade when it happened), I knew nothing about Gianni Versace going into season 2. If you want to watch a dramatization of a real world serial murder case with excellent acting and really cool structure with each episode moving back in time, watch it. Fair warning, it's pretty dark and sad.

Tressa's theme is so freaking good.

 

 

I'd let that girl pick up dirty coins off the road for me any day.

Yes, time to bust that first nut.
