What is this recent trend of games not bothering to have English voiceovers? Not everybody wants JP voices only.

I'll just warn you ahead of time, I wouldn't call La-Mulana a "short" game. I've seen estimates of the original freeware version of ~15hours and ~35-40 for the commercial release version.

Within the past three days I've done Gunman Clive 2, Toki, Streets of Rage 4, and am finishing up Aggelos. Sounds like I'm on a roll. But hey, what smaller game should I tackle next? Be my Mario Pwarty minigame selector and pick one of these for me, please.

I made the mistake of playing Aggelos on Hard difficulty first. Good lord, that was a mistake. Fun though!

Hope you're enjoying it! I found it to be really great, and thanks for recommending it to me.

I never played X4 and beyond, but I really want to.

So, I want a Switch, but... is there any kind of Virtual Console service, outside of that subscription based thing? Is EarthBound on there yet? Not that that's all I care about, I'm just a little confused about how it all works. The Switch library is looking pretty good, especially now with Deadly Premonition 2 coming out.

When SNES Online launched, I was excited because it seemed they were pulling from a wide variety of genres and trying to find stuff that would specifically be good for 2-player online play.

I can't help but think back to MLiG's recent video on the Evercade and their very valid question: who is this for? If they're trying to entice people with Nintendo's back catalogue of first party titles, they're rolling them out extremely slowly. If they're trying to mix it up a bit, some of the game choices are questionable. I'm actually looking forward to an excuse to play The Immortal, too, but I also realize I'm a very niche gamer.

Thanks to all for the BLversary wishes. Anydangway...

Next Switch Online james: Donkey Kong Country (SNES), Natsume Championship Wrestling (SNES), The Immortal (NES)

This seems kinda underwhelming compared to the last batch, but at least the clowns in the neverending circus known as Twitter can be ultimately happy they're finally getting DKC. I'm more interested in the idea they're putting EA's The Immortal on there, which shows they really are willing to give people different kinds of games that, as far as I know, haven't been ported. Oh, but AVGN did a video on it, which I guess is how 90% of people will know about it. Still, everybody seems more excited for the first DKC. [yawn] Yaaay.

Hey, happy anniversary!

Maybe you can even find a use for the Power Gear. I thought it was a bit like charging up your weapons in the X games, but not quite as useless.

I first saw Ms. Pac-Man After Dark at i-Mockery, back when it was still dark and cynical. I haven't been there in an eternity... by technology standards, anyway.

Ah, Edutainment: that wasteland of missed potential.

Donkey Kong Junior Math - Mostly just short fanfares, but has some of that "big showcase" feel that punctuates the bonus stages in Super Mario World, and that short introduction when you first begin Yoshi's Island. Not sure how else to describe it - I think Al Albert's Showcase is a bit before your time - but it's weird to hear it in chiptune.

Mario is Missing - This was a really weird budget title, and what makes it so weird is that the SNES version wasn't that bad. The music here ranges from generic to [Link] At least they didn't do what the SNES version did and just decide that "Super Mario World has only one song; let's do the same thing!"

Mario's Time Machine - Same as above, except maybe for the SNES version using only 1 song; I didn't play much of it.

Mickey's Adventures in Numberland - Also a bit generic, but I can hear that this is a later NES game in the sound choices it makes.

Miracle Piano Teaching System, The - I'm shootin' ducks with a piano! I couldn't actually find a soundtrack for this game.

Popeye no Eigo Asobi - Sounds so much like a Black Box game that I'm tempted to call it the "We Changed a Few Notes; You Can't Sue us" version of Donkey Kong Jr.

Sesame Street: 123 - I moved it because I'm a fussy pain in the ass. There's only one song of significant length, and... it's good. Quite good. It's one of those "Why is this even good? Oh yeah: great composer." kinda deals. Ian Stocker has quite a few of those under his belt. It's nice when the composer gives it all, regardless of what the game is. I'm not actually that familiar with Sesame Street; the woman who used to watch me sometimes used to put it on all the time, and she used to sing along and everything, but I never really paid attention; I have this believe that she put it on more for herself and used me as an excuse. I know the major puppets and stuff, but not much else. That's probably going to color these in one way or another.

Sesame Street: ABC - Lots of fanfares, and a few decent tunes; there was one that reminded me a little of this: [Link]

Sesame Street: Big Bird's Hide & Speak - This is actually pretty pleasant. It's a little basic, but I get that white-on-blue visual that I often do from older Hudson games, even though it sounds different.

Sesame Street: Countdown - This was a leap in a different direction, and it's interesting.

...11 years, huh? Do you remember being 11? Do you remember the things you liked to do, eat, watch or listen to when you were 11 years old? Or a game that you were likely to have been playing at that age?

I've got it! Both titles are very reminiscent of the Game Boy Mega Man games, I feel.

That's a funny coincidence. 2008 us when I secured my copy of Adventures of Lolo 3. I made it all the way to World 14 before I stopped. Later came back to it in 2015 because I was desperate to finish my NES backlog and just used a guide for the rest.

I think his argument is very second order -- his entire basis for saying that sonic's transition to 3D went well is that Sonic Adventure was reviewed well at the time, and that any further nit picking is borne form a modern perspective.

Meanwhile, during my 3 hours with the game so far: I've fallen through floors, had the camera spiral upwards into an unusable overhead view, had the camera inexplicably reverse direction during gameplay, etc.

Are these issues enough to completely sour the game? Probably not. However, in the past few years I've played a lot of early 3D platformers recently which had no issues like these: Super Mario 64, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Banjo Kazooie. So Sonic Adventure really stands out as being considerably more janky.
