Posted under video, review, Sega Genesis


Today I'm reviewing the only Castlevania game made specifically for a Sega console. Is it a good entry in the series? How does it compare to its Super Nintendo counterpart? I have a number of criticism about how it looks and some of the control limitations, but I had a lot of fun while playing it.

It's been a while since I played any Genesis, but I recently got a Mega SD flash cart, which has opened the library up to me considerably. The past weekend I sat down with the intention of trying out a bunch of games for a few minutes each. When I started up Shinobi 3 though, I found myself unable to put it down and played through the whole thing. Here's what I thought of it.

I just started playing the Suikoden series recently. The first game was a pleasant surprise that I ended up really loving. It is concise and well-paced for a JRPG, full of memorable characters and great moments. After I played it, so many people told me that the sequel was just like this but better in every way. I disagree.

I had a lot of time to play games in 2020 and many of them were very good. Out of the 35+ games I played that released in 2020, here are the ones I most enjoyed.

Loom is one of the most beautiful stories that LucasArts Games has produced, telling the story of a young Weaver named Bobbin Threadbare, Chaos, and the Great Loom. This is the story of the game and its development. Warning: I will be spoiling everything from this 30 year old game.

Is this one you played too in the 90s?

Parasite Eve has been a favorite of mine since I first got it for Christmas in 1998. Here's a look at how it holds up now... and how much it could use a remaster.

I'm always interested in the later release NES games. Wacky Races came out in 1991 and was based on the Hanna Barbera cartoon of the same name. It's interesting in that it includes no actual races. It's a solid enough, but rather mediocre platformer.

Occasionally, we get a game that combines the mechanics of pinball with other genres. Recent ones include: Yoku's Island Express, a pinball metroidvania, or Creature in the Well, which is a pinball hack-and-slash dungeon crawler. Pinball Quest is an NES game that included a pinball RPG, in addition to 3 regular tables. While it does have some issues, it was quite a novel idea for the time.

The Metroidvania has recently become one of my favorite genres, and I'm always on the lookout for more. I figure some others might be in the same boat, so here are 10 games I recommend.

Today I'm reviewing a game that has been a little overlooked due to it being a late release on the NES and being preceded by a much less memorable game. Have you played this one? It's Super Spy Hunter.

Today I'm reviewing a game that plays a lot like Pac-man, but puts a prehistoric spin on things. Trog!

Rayman is an amazingly bright and beautiful platformer than I remember loving as a kid. Re-playing it now, I'm unsure I ever got very far into the game because once you get past the first world, it is incredibly difficult! In this video I take a look at the best and worst parts of the game.

The social isolation of the recent month has made me want to partake in some gaming comfort food -- old favorites from my childhood and teenage years. I decided to play one of the most memorable adventure games, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers. It's a slightly more mature take on the adventure genre that looks at a series of voodoo murders. It has a fantastic setting and voice cast, but also some aspects that I needed to take a more critical look at. Enjoy!

Today I'm talking about my first experience with the Suikoden series, a JRPG by Konami that features over 100 playable characters. This is a PS1 JRPG that was never on my radar growing up with the system. I'm glad I gave it a shot and am looking forward to playing the sequel in the near future.

I somehow managed to go through my whole life never playing a Metroid game... until now. Today I'm talking about Super Metroid. It does some things really well, but there are some things I think could be better, or are unfriendly to new players.
