Operation C (Game Boy)

For me, the best Contra game is not the original, nor is it Super C, or even The Alien Wars.  Despite my reluctance in the past to acknowledge hand held games as memorable ones (even though, I know… Read More

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (Game Boy)

Mario-thon 2012 was a great success!  Well…  somewhat. My friends Robot Cousin, Zom-Ben and I got together over the weekend to sit down and play the original Super Mario Bros. games for NES.  No ROM’s, no cheats, no warps; just a… Read More

Super Mario Land (Game Boy)

It was small, and sometimes hard to see Mario when he wasn’t “Super”, but it was still weird and different enough to be considered a classic. As I mentioned in the post before this one, I got this game… Read More

MGS: The Conclusion!

I just realized that the MGS series is now also guilty of slapping HD onto its games, and re-selling them that way.  Not that that’s a bad thing.  It’s just been done a fair amount over the last few years, and… Read More

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX (Game Boy Color)

Aside from being the other Game Boy Color title in my friend Antoine’s library (see my very first game post back in August), Link’s Awakening DX was actually already in my collection on that old grey brick…  only not in… Read More

Mega Man 4 (NES)

Some considered Mega Man 4 to be the beginning of the end of the love affair gamers had with the series.  Honestly, I didn’t find that happened until several years later with the countless Battle Network games that changed the formula altogether…. Read More

Adventures in the Magic Kingdom (NES)

This one may seem a bit childish on the surface, and it does somewhat come out of left field compared to the other games I’ve written about. Capcom had the rights to create Disney games for quite a… Read More

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (Super NES)

I haven’t been good at regularly posting updates, but I’ll get back on track eventually. Let me start off by saying this game has the best music on the Super NES.  It’s a close one, but Turtles in Time… Read More
