Is it just me or is River City Ransom even better than I remember it? Don’t get me wrong, I loved this game as a kid. I just seem to recall preferring Double Dragon. But whoa! This game is fantastic! For an NES game, the controls are amazingly deep. Also, it’s incredibly violent. The animations are just brutal. Awesome!
As for the song, I struck on this idea of trying to figure out exactly why this “Slick” character is so damn evil. He seems so randomly bad. Could it be that his mother doesn’t love him? His dad made him play the piano? He walked in on his parents having sex? I attempt to explore the mind of this psychopath.
If you’ve been watching these Mushroom Singdoms, then you know that I hate turn based RPGs. In general, they just have too much story and not enough action for me. I know everyone loves Phantasy Star. It makes me kind of sad that I’ll never really be able to experience thse types of games fully, but such is life. The song uses the actual game music as it’s basis.
