I'd say it depends how you use it. I use it to sort out regions when I'm giving recommendations that specify one region or not another, but maybe you use it to mark which games stand out in your collection because they're from Brazil or wherever.

There are certainly a lot of assy comic book games; I'll give you that. But we also have X-Men in the Arcade. And X-Men 2 on the Genesis. And X- shit; I'm noticing a pattern, here. It's so easy to make a good game based around superheroes, because superheroes are all about having crazy bullshit superpowers, and so are video game characters. Fuck, they could've easily made a great game based on Heroes, where you play Sylar and chase down superheroes Mega-Man-style and steal their powers after killing them. Damn, that could be a great straight-up Action title OR a great Action-Adventure. Shit, I want this game, now! I've played both of those, and didn't like either of them. Well, it was my dad who got me into video games, but he was all about motorcycle racing, and those usually didn't interest me. Road Rash was fucking awesome. Well, until the 5th Generationn, it was. Beats me; maybe you've played Breath of Fire 4 before. Yeah, but then I still have to listen to him, and be reminded of people I know in real life who really do scream about how they want to shove tacos up their asses. Of course counter-culture goes back at least that far. Now, we have hipsters, but going backwards in time, we have emo, punk (this time also grunge), goth, punk again, hippies, beatniks, and so on. They usually also have a musical accompaniment, some better than others. If I had to guess, I'd say that even the Romantics were a counter-culture movement that eventually affected the mainstream, which they sometimes do.

Yeah, medicinal herbs will do that. Joking aside, though, I've delivered plenty of vials of Dronabinol for that very purpose. Cosmic Star Heroine could have come out in the '90s on the SNES (technology aside), and been revered as one of the classics. If you like 16-bit JRPGs, you'll probably like Cosmic Star Heroine. It has the soul of the era without being shamelessly derivative of any particular game. I haven't, but it doesn't look interesting to me; I want something that I can finish, and the whole "Die once and you have to start from the beginning" bullshit is not what I want out of most games, because losing progress is endlessly frustrating to me. So what if it got anywhere? Now, every game and its distant cousin are part of a genre named after 2 games that didn't do diddly-dick to help create it. Imagine if you wrote a game review in a revolutionary new way, James Rolfe imitated it, Pew Die Pie more blatantly imitated it, and from then on, they were called Video Jame Rolfewdiepies, because they're more well-known than you are. It's bullshit, I tell you! Or here, let's use Family Guy: [Link] Calling it Metroidvania is like that. Okay, calling it Metrovania is like that; calling it Metroidvania is like that, but simultaneously proving that your grasp basic linguistics is less than that of a child. No, Dear; Florida humidity is much worse.

Here: [Link] Just try to tell me that's not a thing. Just try. People like to bitch about that in regard to millennials, but really, my generation is just as bad about rectangle time. I even avoid mainstream gaming media, and I'm sick of hearing that Dark Souls is the Dark Souls of Dark Souls. ENOUGH, ALREADY; my soul is WAY darker than anything you find there! I'm going to play it someday, and when I do, it better be the best motherfucking game EVER, even though nothing could live up to that kind of hype, and I'm not actually serious, but I WILL give it the ribbing of its fucking life once I do. I've been expanding mine and just using old-fashioned methods to keep myself from buying shit. Like willpower. Anyone remember that one? Ooo, or "desperate fear of starvation"; that's a good one. Crazy? Isn't that just the American Dream? I've never really been clear on what that was. Atari was that band that wrote the original version of Boys of Summer. What's revisionist history?

Truthfully, I've had very little tea in my life, unless you count iced tea. Well, it was a bit of a strange fantasy of yours. At least, to my perception it was: my fantasies usually involve some sort of CENSORED: too sick even for my conversational standards. I don't know which episodes I saw, but it came off to me like if they made a sitcom about Black people where all the jokes came from racial stereotypes, except replace Black with nerd. And people love it! Nerds love it! And I don't give a flying fuck that they have a theoretical physicist on staff to make sure the jokes work; they still aren't funny! I gotcha; I think my issue is that "go on" isn't quite the phrase. Perhaps "work with" would've been better? I'd have to ponder that one.

Well, I suppose that's true enough; things don't just disappear from your vision just because you weren't born when they existed. Hell, if that were true, there'd be a lot of people who'd have to find something else to be "nostalgic" about. We do at least have a unit for our bedroom, but the window right behind my PC isn't properly sealed, so bees and shit crawl in and nest there. Point is: I'd love to open it, to let the heat out, but I can't. I am sure; well-made pixel art stands the test of time, but ugly, low-poly bullshit looked bad even when it was bleeding edge technology. Actually, Legend of Mana is the only one that starts with "Legend of", unless you mean that the Japanese name for the series translates to "Legend of the Holy Sword"; it wasn't localized that way in most cases.

Was that a joke?
1) Fortification. a projecting portion of a rampart or fortification that forms an irregular pentagon attached at the base to the main work.
2) a fortified place.
3) anything seen as preserving or protecting some quality, condition, etc.
I don't think it works. Yeah, it was great; even the stupid minigames had the purpose of increasing your skill with each weapon/arm, so they weren't the usual thoughtless bullshit that JRPGs like to throw at you. Also, the controls were good, so they didn't suck nearly as hard. This is us: [Link] This is what our culture looks like. I wouldn't quite say nobody, but definitely not enough. CRAZY FAN THEORY: THE KID IS ACTUALLY PECOS BILL!

From what I've heard and seen, New Ghostbusters 2 was better than both Ghostbusters 1 and 2 which were published by Activision (the first one was made in-house, buts ports were made by various companies, while the second was made by Imagineer who made their own licensed crap) [Link] HAL actually sublicensed from Activision [Link] and it came really close to getting an American release but it was quietly cancelled (we did get the Game Boy version, but I hear it isn't as good). at least we got the MD/Genesis one (Natsume)...

At least Dave Mirra managed to win his lawsuit...

I'd say they're much more so than other countries; not only did Australia lacked an R18+ rating for games until 2013 (because the guy in charge outright refused, even though the others were okay with it; Mortal Kombat 9 challenged this notion), but even with the R18+ rating, some games got banned. to my understanding (so I might be wrong), i]n the UK and Germany, you can import a banned game for your own personal use; in Australia, they'll just have customs take it away and you'll get fined (this is because ACB is actually ran by the government, whereas other organizations are self-ran). hell, they recently banned We Happy Few for advertising drug use (although it was later unbanned), even though the whole game is trying to show you that drugs are bad (ironically in New Zealand, it only got a R13)

Missng out on SBTTF2 was also a shame. [Link] this one might have been passed up due to the fact that this came out so long after BTTF 2 (this was released in 1993). it was Daft's first game (Ironic because Daft can also mean foolish); they also made Hamelin no Violin Hiki (another licensed game) which was also pretty good.

Well, we almost got Dragon Quest 5, but they canned it due to issues with translating. DQ6 almost made it across but was cancelled due to Enix America's closure (Enix got fed up with how poorly their games were doing in the US). the DQ4 remake's localization was canned for an enitrely different reason (the developers at Heartbeat closed down without telling Enix this, and Enix couldn't find anyone who could help insert the English text into the game). it seems to be mostly bad luck in addition to late releases.

I just liked the flashy special powers, myself. It actually started with the NES game, believe it or not; I saw it in Nintendo Power and thought it looked neat. And it does, but it plays kinda assy. As disappointing as the gameplay was, the environments had this surreal charm to them. Also, my half-uncle is a big comic book nerd, and he taught me that no, they weren't limited to awkward lunge attacks and shooting squares out of their hands. Banthas remind me of the things between the hop-owls and the kangarelk on the right side: [Link] Well, sure, he's Sir Ian Fucking MacKellan, playing Patrick Stewart's best friend; hard to fuck that up. Deadpool is a really obnoxious character (like the worst '90s Action hero ever), but I did enjoy the first one more than I'd thought, and even I can't deny that casting Ryan Reynolds was fucking PERFECT. Not necessarily; remember that Rock was originally a genre born from a counter-culture movement. Poppier boy bands, maybe; The Beatles were basically a boy band when they first got popular. That said, they're older than that; New Kids on the Block were popular in the '80s, and they're one of the first that I remember. Depending, you might also make a case for Ska.

I like cooking a hell of a lot more than I like eating, that's for sure. I'm actually not even sure what mince means in that context; I'm entirely self-taught, so I don't know a lot of cooking terminology. Also, I don't make meat very often. I'm not a vegan or anything; I just don't like most meats. Probably someday when I have both the time and motivation. Right now, I have yardwork and Cosmic Star Heroine, so that's going to be a while. And it didn't innovate fucking anything; Super Adventure Island 2 did most everything that Symphony of the Night "added", and I don't think that the familiar system is prominent enough in today's genre that it counts as influential. Shit, Metroid wasn't even "Metroid" until Super Metroid; if anything, it was aping games like Maze of Galious and Blaster Master. I think that's exactly right, and trying to change it now is like trying to get people to stop calling JRPGs RPGs; no way that's ever going to happen. I guess there is at least a little solace that we're stuck with this, rather than the old term, Castleroid. [Link] I've been skipping a lot of meals, myself; it's fucking gross and hot around here.

It's a pretty good show, and I don't watch a lot of TV, so take that as you will. Lincoln and Stalin were best buds; they used to hang out with Elvis Costello. Well, you know, we could certainly work to improve our situation, but it would really cut into our rectangle time. And I know that; it's not every day that Tiger Philanthropist is going to hop on and give away 100 copies of a $50 game. But I don't give a fuck about $50 games. Yeah, they're high budget, and generally higher quality, but I don't need to hear about Dark Souls. I know about Dark Souls. You know about Dark Souls. My blind grandmother, who says that "Natheris" is between here and Bangor knows about Dark Souls. I want to hear about shit I wouldn't find otherwise, and wouldn't you know it: my wishlist of 59 games consists of 36 (maybe 35; I may have heard of She Remembered Caterpillars beforehand) games that I would otherwise never have discovered. You just have to approach them as judiciously as you should any game, so that you don't buy a shit product. What are you talking about? There was never a video game crash caused by an oversaturated market.

Only if it's white or red (unless you want me to jump over the table and smash your face to bits; caffeine kinda turns me into an unstoppable rage monster), but don't get your hopes up; I really don't think my opinion is changing on this, if Pat Roesle, my favorite living writer, wasn't able to do it. It seems mandatory to have an unlikable nerd character these days; To the Moon, Cosmic Star Heroine, and hell, Big Bang Theory's entire main cast. Don't even get me started on the show, either; it's popularity positively flabbergasts me. What do you mean, "He didn't have much to go on"? It was an original creation; he wasn't constructing it from foreign details. Oh, it's a great battle system, and I enjoyed it quite a bit, too, but often, there wasn't much complexity to it. 2 of them were; most of teh others died in a single hit. I still enjoyed the game a lot, and think it's a great game, but not quite the masterpiece everyone claims it to be.

You won't find me wearing much more around the house this time of year; we don't have air conditioning. Well, I can't even test you, because the logo's so old I can't find it online, but if your page is to be believed, the shirt is older than you are. Well, let me put it this way: the first Seiken Densetsu is an Action-Adventure on the Game Boy. The GBA reboot(?) has 2 playable characters with slightly different paths; wild, beautiful environments just exploding with bright colors, like I've only seen on the GBA; a wide variety of spells with actual elementals; and weapons and armor forged with materials that you find, before crafting systems were fucking mandatory. The Vita version is just a direct port of the original, but with ugly graphics so low-poly that you'd think it's for PS1; the Game Boy version looks better. The music ranges from bland orchestral to what would be saccharine over-the-top anime rock on cocaine (think those Ys remakes for PSP), but if the guitarist were Lana Del Ray, so it simultaneously sounds bored and lackadaisical.

It was wonderful! The gameplay was fantastic, not just because of the combat, but also because it was fun to collect all of the different weapons and experiment freely with them. You don't have limited ammo or anything; just reload times, so you don't have to worry about running out. I thought it was just going to be "Zelda" with some self-important story, but fun gameplay, but the combat isn't as shallow as in Zelda, and the story actually had a message worth telling. One that people will continue to ignore, I'm sure, because nostalgia is far too appealing.

No worries! Take your time to reply, I don't mind! I think the hardest part for me right now is that I have so many consoles that don't output to HD, yet I only have an HD TV. So I have to find some way around all that. Not only that, but my shelving is kind of annoying to pull games off of, so I need to resolve that, too. Handhelds and things I can easily load on PC have been more appealing lately.

They are expensive, sadly. Lunar 2: Eternal Blue was released on PSN only in Japan, sadly. I wonder if we'll ever get it here? Would be great so people don't have to spend a stupid amount for even just the discs. Silver Star Story is a little more accessible, at least, although I prefer the PS1 version as a whole.

Great. I'm still waiting on Volume 3 to come out.

He died a day before Bomberman was revealed.

Hell, there was a former Sunsoft employee (Nobuyuki Hara, who worked as an audio programmer) who died at 25. due to an illness.

The Entertech situation was pretty awful; it not only caused kids to get killed due to the cops thinking that they're real guns, but were also used in robberies. they tried releasing them with an orange tip and later different colors (which didn't really work as I read that some people just painted them black). once Acclaim bought them, they discontinued toy manufacturing and sold the brand (although I assume that it was likely because they didn't want to be associated with that brand).

I wasn't talking about the quality of the game (although I've heard good things about it), but rather the fact that they offered money to any couple who's willing to name their kid Turok. [Link] (you'll also see the news that they bought tombstones as advertising space, although they claimed that it's a april fool's joke). the BMX XXX one was even more awful; basically, it was intended to be a Dave Mirra game, but then they thought that giving it mature content would make it sell. it didn't; not only did Dave Mirra (RIP) pulled support (who initially was okay with the idea until he realized that his sponsors would stop supporting him), but when Acclaim tried to release the game anyways, he ended up suing them. some stores wouldn't carry the game, and it was banned in Australia... until they removed the sexual content to get it to sell in that region, removing half the point of playing the game. it ended up selling just 160,000 copies, a fraction of what the first two games sold. the resulting events ended up killing the company.

If you want to learn more, look up "It made absolutely no sense BMX XXX" on google. it should be on the top of the page.

The weird thing is that there are licensed games we never got in the west even though the game was based off of a western IP; such as The New Ghostbusters 2 and Super Back To The Future 2. and that Famicom Garfield game, but pretty much nobody cares about that.

I remember E3 2017 when EA asked a guy to advertise their newest NFS game, and he ended up getting infamy when they called him on earlier than scheduled (among other things like calling a staff member by the wrong name). yikes.

True.

It's on amazon, but the price is much more higher. you're better off getting it on Fangamer. [Link] [Link]

So many notable Japanese game developers seem to be dying in their young-mid age. Masato Masuda (Fire Pro Wrestling creator) died at 48, Kenji Eno died at 40, Iwata died at 55, and this guy lived to be 58. at least Bomberman was announced made it into Super Smash Brothers Ultimate as an AT. I'm sure he would have been happy to hear that news.

Another thing that soured people's relation with LJN was their Entertech guns (they used to make toys), which were water guns that looked like real guns. [Link] needless to say, their reputation was hurt to the point that they stopped making toys. Nintendo altering their Light Gun for its western debut suddenly seems like a smart move in hindsight. [Link] (that's how their light gun looked in Japan!)

In 1995, LJN was absorbed into Acclaim so they no longer exist, but they later used the label for one more game; a racing game named Spirit of Speed 37. you just know that Acclaim used their name because they realized how infamous they were at this point. that isn't to say that Acclaim was any better; see the shit they did regarding Turok or BMX XXX.

EA is and continues to be greed personified.

What do you think about this year's E3?
