It's moreso the jumping and landing that feels off. I've had two or three times where I lost a few lives and got booted out of a stage because the jump timing felt wrong (as in, I know I hit the button, and it didn't look too late to jump, but apparently it was). I think I can manage, and I'm trying to enjoy the game for what it is rather than "this is holding me back from playing Galaxy because I insist on doing these games in order", but I've found myself getting a bit frustrated so far. Not a bad game though by any means.

The trigger sensitivity is handled in an interesting way. It's mapped to R and Right Trigger, with the R button being for stationary spraying and the trigger being used for spraying while moving. It takes a bit of getting used to but it seems to work okay.

I missed Super Mario Sunshine and pretty much the entire Gamecube era of Nintendo so this is all new to me.

I would love to put Pizza Time Explosion on Switch of course but, it would cost me a lot because I have to buy a new version of Game Maker Studio, I have to buy a Switch development kit, and then on top of that, as a v small self published developer, theres no guarantee Nintendo will even accept the game,, I'm really happy releasing on Steam tho, that's worked out very well!

Oh yeah, I always wanted the NES version of Battletoads & Double Dragon but I had to settle for the reasonably priced SNES cart. The game itself was fine on both consoles (and I actually preferred some of the music on the SNES one, like the guitar lines on the Stage 5 theme, which worked really well for a level about a rocket blazing through space), but still.

I can't do the game collection thing anymore. I don't have the space or the money. In hindsight I wish I'd saved my old carts but I needed the money, and I made it a point to beat/complete as many of them as I could before I sold them off, so I got my money's worth at least (considering I got some of them for dirt cheap or even free, that's not saying too much!)

I'd think it would be the other way around. I'd expect "mirrored" episodes of the Super Show or slightly sped up or something. Does anyone even own the distribution rights to these old cartoons anymore?

Double Dragon has always had a bit of tonal whiplash to me. It feels like every piece of Double Dragon media is a different interpretation of the world the games inhabit, even when comparing the games to their NES counterparts. Some are post apocalyptic, some seem grounded in reality, others seem very "80's". In a weird way that's sort of appealing. I hold the opinion that Super Double Dragon and Double Dragon Neon are the best ones, but they all have at least some semblance of likability to them.

Have you seen the Double Dragon movie? It's one of my guilty pleasures. It's by no means a good movie, but its an entertaining one. It has a weird sense of humour and a weird sense of "post-apocalypse-but-not-really". I haven't seen it in maybe 25 years but I have fond memories.

I'll need to eventually play Paper Mario on the N64 first before I get to Bug Fables. I may never even get around to playing either. But alas, I had a gift card so why not. We'll see what the Fortune Cookie says once I finish the new Battletoads I guess, unless I just opt to finish the rest of the Genesis Mini games first.

World of Warcraft is an MMO doesn't have a save file per say tied to your account. That's also not accounting my other two characters (soon three) playtime I probably have almost or just about 900 hours within two/three months.

I actually have not really played anything for a long time. Keep trying to get myself to write, but I've been feeling nervous and unmotivated, so I've mostly just procrastinated. Funny because the video is essentially about overcoming procrastination. Got some paragraphs into my script the other day and I've been feeling pretty good about it though. Got a solid idea of how I wanna structure the rest of it too. Hoping I can keep this pace up because making videos is very fun and rewarding.

Got Retroarch on my laptop and my typical go-to games are Pokemon Pinball and Super Mario World. I enjoy playing them on my bus rides whenever I don't have enough time to fire up another episode of whatever I'm watching. Oh yeah, I actually forgot about that! Probably won't start up any big games just yet until I'm done with this video, but I could definitely go for some shorter ones. I've actually been thinking a lot about Startropics lately. Never really played much of the second game. I don't think it's as good as the first one, however, I definitely should beat it at least once. I'd probably just toss a dice and let that determine your outcome. That way you eliminate any downtime you may have if you're scratching for something to play. Who knows, you could always end up with just the right thing without even realizing it.

Truth be told, I would have liked if it included Super Mario Galaxy 2, and yeah, you could argue that they're charging a lot for three old games without much in the ways of extras. I still bought it though.

It's convenient. I can play all three of these games on one console without having to recover and hook up my old N64, and I don't even have a Gamecube at the moment. Sure, I could emulate, but that's a bit of a pain to get to work.

Is it a bad value? Probably. I don't really care though. And I have Galaxy 2 so I'm using 3D All Stars as an excuse to finally beat Super Mario Galaxy on my own (my brother and I used to play it alternating turns) and then jump into the second one.

I never saw the Supercade either as that's a bit before my time. I MAY have seen it but probably didn't have any cognitive abilities to process what was going on when it was airing. My parents weren't really gamers or anything aside from my dad who once (rather irresponsibly) spent our rent money on an Atari 2600 and a bunch of games when I was a baby. Admittedly, not a smart move, but it introduced me to Adventure, Pole Position, Phoenix, Cosmic Ark, Combat, Super Breakout, etc, so it wasn't all bad.

I never saw Defenders of the Realm either, but I do recall renting the animated movie preview of the Mortal Kombat movie and being bored. As for the Battletoads pilot, I actually sorta liked it. It's not great, but I like the dumb surfer dude personas they gave them, even though that's skirting dangerously close to "Ninja Turtles ripoff" territory by making three Michelangelos. Seems like a very early 90's thing to do.

The lesson I'm getting here is "If you use Oculus Rift and don't watch your back, the Shadow Boss will grab you from behind and stare at you menacingly". That's good life advice!

I was never really into River City as a kid. I'd probably actually have played the game though if I'd watched the cartoon. However, I sometimes worked the opposite way. I'd develop interest in something if I played the game first. Case in point, my first issue of Nintendo Power had a section on the NES game Darkman, so I rented the game, liked it, and later saw the movie.

I know weapons were occasionally a part of Double Dragon gameplay, but when weapons were used in the game, they'd typically be "street" weapons. Then again, that's probably excessively violent for kids. Swords are at least not something a kid can really get a hold of. I'm surprised they didn't make the Shadow Warriors robots so that it would be kid friendly to slash at them a la TMNT.

The cartoon came out in the 90s and I think around that time there was a lot of pressure to make "violent" cartoons at least somewhat educational, hence the tacked on bits at the end. That never felt like an effective way to teach a real life lesson, to me, but again, it's sort of tacked on. Then again, I feel the pressure to make these cartoons "educational" was less about offsetting the violence as it was offsetting the fact that they're basically toy commercials.

I haven't tried Mechstermination Force yet either because I wasn't aware it existed until now! I'll probably grab that soon as well. I really, really liked Gunman Clive. It felt like it pulled inspiration from the Mega Man games for Game Boy specifically, which I feel as a whole are underrated and underappreciated (and in some ways more enjoyable than the NES originals)

I'd love to hear how Daniel Ibbertson pronounces Mushihimesama Futari.

I didn't play Angerforce on Veteran difficulty, and I've uninstalled it now.

I did like Gunbird but not the sequel. Can't remember why, but I couldn't stand Gunbird 2. Got no enjoyment out of it whatsoever.

Mars Attacks the game has nothing to do with the movie of the same name.

Raiden games are either boringly easy (Raiden DX with the bendy laser) or the ship moves far too slowly to react to anything, which forces you to memorise everything to stand a chance. I can't even remember what the music in that series is like, either. Speaking of shmups whose music I can't recall, I just remembered that Psyvariar Ultimate Final is pretty good. That's "Psyvariar Ultimate Final", the PS2 game, not Psyvariar Delta... although Psyvariar Delta might be good too. It got a really good review score from Bullet Heaven on Youtube: [Link]

I've never understood the appeal of Touhou.

The PS1 version of DDP is slightly better than the Saturn version, but the arcade version is the way to go.

Well Prophallus, now that I've completed my nine year backlog journey, I'm going to Disney World!

Actually, that'd cost a lot of money. Plus travel is a pain in the butt right now because of COVID-19. Also, I have no desire to go to a Disney theme park.

...

I'm going to... play Adventures in the Magic Kingdom?

Next Switch Online games are:

Donkey Kong Country 2
Mario's Super Picross
Peace Keepers, The
S.C.A.T.

Incredible! A game that was never released in the US, an NES game that goes for $100 nowadays, and a sequel to Brawl Brothers. Oh, and DKC2 for good measure.

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Twitter*!

I do think that Spelunky does deliberately reference Spelunker, and those elements which you've mentioned are definitely there. I think beyond that they're pretty different games besides both using platforming mechanics. But I've never played Spelunker, so maybe I'm wrong.
