Well, the graveyard duck thing is a simple missed comma, but legions of kids spent hours looking for that goddamn graveyard duck; there's even a Castlevania 2 level editor by that name. I hate the term, "sick burn"; it's one of those phrases that makes my eye start twitching, like salty. Salty is a term that I hadn't heard since the 1930s, and now, all of a sudden, everyone's using it like it's some new thing. Same with bro, though that's more of a '90s thing. It is my favorite Pokeymanz, though: Sick Green and Burn Red.

I don't think she's gotten into any really serious shit with it yet, but she'd have one hell of a time figuring out where to go.

For the D-pad, I can see it as a good option, though the PS3 controller has that, as well. Granted, it's not quite the same as the NES-style D-pad, but I imagine it works just the same. That's okay; I'm looking to play the Final Fantasy 7 retranslation, and I'd thought that that would be a good option.

Yeah, library aside, the only place the NES has the SMS beat is in the sound chip; I definitely prefer the NES sound to the SMS sound overall. That said, the SMS does manage to crank out a few really good soundtracks here and there; I actually like the SMS version of OutRun better than the Arcade. In this way, the SMS is like the Genesis: its sound isn't as good as Nintendo's offering, but it does manage a great soundtrack now and again. We actually managed to splice up wires to rig the Game Gear in such a way that we could plug it into our van's cigarette lighter; if I'd had some great games, it would've been excellent for a long trip. Sadly, though, Columns is what got the most playtime, and I'm not even that big a Puzzler fan. I know what you mean; Super Mario Bros. Deluxe's colors were all wrong. See, we had a hotbox, so we could even watch pay channels for free... until they got smart and started varying the scramble signal.

Hello! Sorry I haven't responded sooner, had a lot of stuff going on I had to handle last few months. Hope all is well!

Thoughts on the NX? I have mixed feelings (Nintendo is saying it's a new way to experience games) but will be there day one. I hope Nintendo's "new" way to experience games isn't another gimmicky whatever (not a VR fan), but I will play Zelda and Mario however I need to.

Any great games you are playing/played recently? Would love any recommendations you may have. I finished Ratchet & Clank, Broken Age and I am working on Uncharted 4. Ratchet & Clank was a lot of fun, but nothing special. Broken Age was beautiful and complex, but turned into a chore. So far, Uncharted 4 is beautiful and everything a fan of the series could want in the "final" entry. I hope it ends that way!

Your summary of Orbient sounds cool. I love those games were you have to manipulate gravity! The only problem is that it's on the Wii Shop Channel. I don't really want to dump any more money there.

Yes exactly!

I may eventually pick up an NX too, but it won't be for a while at least. I dunno.

To be fair, that entire batch was from Castlevania 2; they were at least centralized that time. I agree; why can't we just have fun, instead of all this elitist bullshit? Remember when people were allowed to have opinions? I sure do.

I usually stay pretty focused on what I'm playing, so that's not as much of an issue for me, but I know that my lady is going to have to restart Breath of Fire 3, because she started playing it not long after we started living together. I think she just got the first gene, and hasn't played since. We've been living together for over 9 years now.

I hate the Wii U controllers, because I think having analog sticks on the top is a terrible idea. That said, would one of those things work with a PS3 controller? I have 2 of those, and only a small handful of 2-player games, most of which are Fighters, which my lady just doesn't play.

You are far from alone on that; I don't know anyone else in the United States who had one when it was new. My mom had gotten the NES for my dad, because he was a huge fan of Hang-On in the arcade. Hang-On is a SEGA game. So, she also got him a Master System, and we always had both. The Master System has far superior graphical capabilities to the NES (the scaling in Phantasy Star actually looks smoother than most 3D dungeons in the SNES, and that shit has Mode 7), but suffers from an anemic library. The Game Gear is the same deal: backlit, beautiful color, so damn powerful that it can play Master System games with a $1 adapter, but the library is just so lacking. Also, it eats batteries like I devour foods I'm craving during PMS under a full moon. That said, for my money, the Nintendo systems always had better sound chips. As for TurboGrafx-16, I remember the commercials, but only ever knew one person who had one back in the day, and it wasn't me.

Yeah, my lady asked me how I was enjoying the game, and I said, "Well, the first world started out with the same damn 1-1 that I've seen in a billion fucking hacks from Mario to Mega Man, but the rest of the world had actual interesting choices from the first game. The second world was the second game, and then... I don't know." "What do you mean?" "I think I discovered Hell..." Well, it is a concept that could work well in 2D; just the concept of hacking, itself, is altering the structure of a level, and it was definitely used very well here!
