Hello once again fellow dtoiders, and welcome to another Monday. Boo...
Not much to report really, Finally hooked up my modded Super Famicom last week and have been enjoying my likely too expensive copy of Terranigma
. While there is a little bit of retro goggles, the game is still absolutely brilliant and was worth every penny that was needed to allow me to play it. I do plan to pick up Ghostbusters as well, but to be honest it'll likely wait as I already have way too many games on the go
A possibly surprise fail that I'd like to touch on is Tanukitsune's blog, where they continue their battle against their backlog of games. I used to be like that, keeping track of the games I haven't beaten yet. Kept saying that one day I'd beat them all. Even then however I would try to properly play a game though, as opposed to the quick run through with a guide that they are doing. To me if you're going to do that you might as well just watch the ending on Youtube
and be done with it. Save a lot of time. Am I alone on this?
