I've been had: Sound Shapes review

Well now it seems like my images wouldn't even copy/paste properly! I'm sorry I'm so lazy. If you want to check out the full thing with images and not-wonky formatting, check it out here! Otherwise enjoy and comment away. Sound Shapes...

 
 
 

Blast Processing in Action: Sonic 2

I've started a new blog. Wait no! I still love you guys and love to see your comments. I thought about copy-pasting everything onto a dtoid blog, but formatting got pretty wonky (see also: my last blog about Sonic 1). You guys deserve ...

 
 
 

Help I'm a Sonic fan and have no friends

Sonic the Hedgehog (Sega Genesis, 1991) For far too long SEGA has been peddling its (mostly) garbage Sonic games on the loyalty of a very disturbed and confused fanbase and the very powerful, inexplicable sense of nostalgia gamers have...

 
 
 
 

Electric seaweed

Ah, the TMNT trilogy on NES. Not really a trilogy, but whatever. These are the kind of games a mother may buy for her child, and so that child might feel loved. Or something. Turtle fever is in full swing; what started as a simple black-...

 
 
 

Those wonderful toys

I've long preferred Burton's pair of Batman films to Nolan's noisy, bloated, self-serious behemoths. But hey! This is meant to be about video games. And how the four very different games based on Burton's first 1989 Batman film kinda-sorta ...

 
 
 

A funny thing happened on the way to Zanarkand...

FFX Spoilers, duh So there I am, having killed Seymour (again, maybe) and approaching the 'point of no return' - you know, that point in JRPGs where the world suddenly opens up and you're given free reign to explore and grind and unlock ul...

 
 
 

The Last Avengers Game (no seriously)

What? Where are you going? No, don't leave, it's the last one, I promise! There's more to me than Captain America games developed exclusively by Data East. Honest! So here's one you might not know. Remember when Primal Rage looked cool? ...

 
 
 

ROGER, WASP: That other Captain America game

Not only did Data East make an awesome Avengers beat-em-up that sort of reveled in its own mediocrity, they ported it to NES like so many other classics. Except "port" isn't the right word; it's an entirely different game. In a time where...

 
 
 

THEY'RE IN THE SEA: Not Marvel's Avengers

This is what kids ate their vegetables for. Well, I did, anyway. I don't know what it is about this game, but I've played it countless times. Clearly I am a sick person.   The fact that I will always get a kick out of the dialogue and ...

 
 
 

Castlevania starring CHRISTOPHER BEE as DRACULA

I'm trying out old games that I either missed or, for whatever reason, never worked for me. Pull up a chair. Image courtesy of MobyGames Here we are at last. A game - and entire series, really - that has never quite 'clicked' for me. Adm...

 
 
 

Mission Statement

Enjoy a little welcome music, from one of the greatest opening themes ever. Mission statement. Well, that sounds formal. Some people have their trophies and their achievements and their high scores and their 100% game saves to validate ...

Playing games, writing about them. A vague validation for this strange time-wasting hobby of ours.



RPGs are my bread, and platformers are my butter. I love old games and Marvel Comics games, Final Fantasy and Atlus, beat-em-ups and tactics RPGs.
