Surprisingly authentic-looking conversion of Super Mario Bros to C64. Some obvious slowdown, though.



 
 
 

No vertical screen orientation in Konami's Arcade Collection on Switch, or am I missing an option somewhere?

 
 
 

Having played Gradius so far only on MSX and NES, the arcade original on Konami's Anniversary Collection Arcade Classics feels very different. As in, I couldn't even get to the end of the first level with one credit.

 
 
 

MSXdev'18 results are out, and I agree on the winners of the classic series. My game ranked 7/12; pretty much what I expected.

 
 
 

I have spent some 140 hours with Gems of War (Switch), and I'm finally starting to play other games as well. Uuurgh.

 
 
 

So far the last of the music Kickstarter has wrapped up for me, with another (physical) CD of orchestrated Turrican music and another CD with new TFMX music by Huelsbeck and Brimble. Reason enough to go to the office on my holiday, I guess.



 
 
 

Dancing is dangerous, mmkay.



 
 
 

MSXdev'18 -- almost all entries

The MSXdev'18 competition to develop new games for the MSX computers finished on February 14th, 2019. Or rather, that was the deadline for the entries. The actual results will be out on April 11th, 2019, but I wrote this blog independe...

 
 
 
 

Made the mistake of trying to open my PS3 superslim and get the dust out. Gave up when I broke a shell piece so that I'll need tape or glue for it to stay up. But at least I gave Neo Contra, Gradius V and Afterburner Climax another go.

 
 
 

I've registered only a bit over 4400 km to Wii Fit U thru the Wii Fit Meter so far. I'm disappointed.

 
 
 

The reveal of Cadence of Hyrule got me to try out Necrodancer first. That didn't amount to a sale, though, since I had had from some GOG sale indeterminable amount of time ago. So... for whom is that a good thing?

 
 
 

At this rate I'll get the Labo VR kit. I'm a sucker for anything endlessoceany.

 
 
 

Looks like Snow Battle Princess Sayuki is coming to Switch. I'm not sure, but it looks like it has a lot to do (a straight port?) with Heavenly Guardian / Legend of Sayuki. I'll probably want to get it...

 
 
 

I shouldn't be this upset that a game called "Pine" has a stylised spruce or a fir as its logo. But I am.

 
 
 

How many of you have ever used a ball mouse? (Not trackballs but the ones with the ball under the mouse) And how many of you have used it in the past ten years?

 
 
 

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that the Captain Toad DLC has so many remixes of old stages rather than fully new levels for the price it had.

 
 
 

Anyone remember HD rumble?

 
 
 

Midnight blues... so here's Midnight Brothers (ZAP Corporation/Sony Corporation, 1986) on MSX. Not sure if this qualifies as a licensed game...



 
 
 

Can a problem exist without a thinking being to observe it?

 
 
 

That's Keroblaster finished in the overtime mode as well. I suppose I should try the dev's earlier game one day...

 
 
 

An Octopath Traveller prequel is coming, but it's for mobiles? (USGamer)

 
 
 

For years, I thought I'd like to play The Reap. Now that I've seen video of it in action... I'm no longer sure. (I was reminded of it by the premise of X-Morph)



 
 
 

My "Four in February": Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove, MCF: Ravenhearst, MCF: Return to Ravenhearst, Sky Force Reloaded, Horizon Chase Turbo, Virus LPQ-79.

 
 
 

On the positive side, Startide on Switch got a patch and I could get past the part that crashed the game constantly. On the negative side, it's still not a fun game.

 
 
 

It feels strange to see the community blog list without one from Kerrik52. But I suppose that's for his best.

Very much unprofessional writer, don't take anything I write without a truckload of salt.

On a hopefully long-term break from saying anything.
