Rediscovering: Last Battalion (Mission Override)

by NFG - Oct 25 2012 in Games (General)

When I lived in Japan I had a habit of buying big lots of games and selling off the individual pieces on ebay. One day a title arrived that I thought looked a little bit familiar: Last Battalion.

Rediscovering: Override

by NFG - Sep 27 2012 in Games (General)

The first couple of years of the Nineties was the peak of shooter popularity, before beat-em-ups came along and dominated the game scene for the next half decade. The arcades in 1991 were filled with the explosive, sparkling screens of shooters, and players at home were similarly...

Rediscovering: Toy Shop Boys

by NFG - Sep 19 2012 in Games (General)

A few days ago I fired up the old Xbox 360 to play some games, only to realie that the machine was not a games console anymore. It was some sort of slow-loading ad-showing committee-made media consumption box that actively sought to make it harder for me to spend money on games. I was outraged, and I realized it wasn't...

Rediscovering: The Ignition Factor

by NFG - Jul 11 2012 in Games (General)

The Ignition Factor is an unremarkable game, but for some reason it has stuck in my mind for nearly 20 years since its release on the Super Nintendo. It's a fireman sim, with some competent graphics and challenging gameplay.

Game Hacking: trap15's Cave Arcade Hacks

by NFG - Jul 01 2012 in Games (General)

trap15 is a pretty cool guy, I hang out with him on IRC and it seems that he's always up to something, from reverse-engineering stuff to building crazy things to basically just hacking the shit out of everything he can get his hands on. What impresses me is the way he does it: he'll pick it up, turn it over, and put it...

Rediscovering: Magical Hats

by NFG - Jun 29 2012 in Games (General)

Back in the day, c.1989 or so, I was on the cutting edge of video game technology. Around the same time North America was receiving its first real look at the future by way of the release of Sega's Genesis console, I worked my ass off for a few weeks to earn enough to import a Japanese MegaDrive, and was one of the very...

Rediscovering: Plok!

by NFG - Jun 18 2012 in Games (General)

I remember Plok. When it came out, no one cared anymore. It checked every box on the 'zzz what' list: platform game, SNES, cute mascot of some sort (WTF is that anyway?) from a no-name developer in Europe, long a source of craptastic software despite what Amiga fans would have you believe.

Rediscovering: Hagane

by NFG - Jun 13 2012 in Games (General)

Hagane is a weird game. When it was new, I had a copy and I thought it was staggeringly cool. It couldn't be more Japanese if it crammed wasabi down your throat, and it was so fucking difficult that's more or less what it felt like to play it.

Rediscovering: Demon's Crest

by NFG - Jun 10 2012 in Games (General)

When the SNES was still king there were popular games and there were good games, and they weren't always the same. Sometimes a game would slip through the cracks, and those in the know would talk about how awesome it was while the majority of players didn't know it existed.

Rediscovering: Super Ghouls n Ghosts

by NFG - Jun 09 2012 in Games (General)

I have a love/hate relationship with the GnG franchise. I've always considered it a series of unfinished games, each one - including the arcade versions - seems to have set pieces that just don't quite look right, along with one-off events and cheap traps you have to experience and memorize to avoid. It always felt mean...

Rediscovering: MegaMan X

by NFG - Jun 06 2012 in Games (General)

I've always loved SNES MegaMan, but I could never really play it back in the day 'cause I didn't really have the patience, even then, to play through each level and see if any of the weapons I'd unlocked so far were effective vs that level's boss.

Rediscovering: Whirlo

by NFG - Jun 06 2012 in Games (General)

I don't know where I got the impression that this game was a good one. Perhaps I thought, you know, Namco. And the main character was charming, who doesn't want to play a cute green blob-like thing on an exciting adventure?

It's time to advance the video games.

by NFG - Jun 01 2012 in Games (General)

You know, I never really counted myself as a member of the 'video games are juvenile' contingent. It has never bothered me that some games portrayed women in what some consider a less than ideal light. It's never really upset me that some games are violent and occasionally someone gets his spine ripped out. I'm nonplussed...
