As I touched on in last week’s thread, I gave in to the realities of the GPU shortage and ordered myself a new pre-built desktop PC to become my main gaming device rather than my infamous potato laptop. Which means that I’ve gone from this as my main system:

Because as the title says, the focus is on the Game Boy’s wierdest rivals. The Lynx, Game Gear, and Sony’s portable consoles were all rivals, but there wasn’t anything weird or obscure about them, they were treated as legitimate competition, unlike most of these (same goes for the short-lived Neo-Geo Pocket Color, or Read more

Almost done with Maquette (I think), and I have to say, this is a strong early candidate for most disappointing game of the year. It has a lot of flaws, but I want to zero in on a couple of things that I don’t think can be fixed by game’s end. First: the writing. The game tells your classic “boy and girl fall in love, Read more

Grabbed a copy of Earth Defense Force 5 for cheap and I’ve been enjoying it a ton. It really isn’t too different from 4.1 but they try to make it a bit more story heavy. It’s still just shooting waves of bugs, UFOs and robots for hours on end with different weapons. It also still looks like a bad ps2 game and I love Read more

As far as annoying sidekicks in games go, the one that’s stuck with me all these years is Cedric the Owl from King’s Quest V. Whenever I got stuck I’d try to kill him with my magic wand.

I bet once they get around to a game focusing on the Saga of Yamcha, then the franchise will have reached the appropriate stopping point.

I had quite a bit of fun with Link’s Awakening on release day. Huge fan of Link’s Awakening, and have long said that it’s not just one of the best Game Boy games; it’s one of the best Zelda games. I appreciate that they didn’t change the core game with the updates they made. Outside of graphical changes, it’s mostly ju Read more

That’s a lovely sentiment to end up at after re-evaluating your own perceptions. I’ve never particularly cared for 8-bit graphics and when I was young, I didn’t have the knowledge or capital to collect a lot of Gameboy games or know which ones were good (thanks, James Bond 007!, the closest game to Zelda I ever Read more
