Beginning of The End: Review of “Phantasy Star IV: The End of The Millenium”

October 15, 2009
I really need to be more genre-savvy...

Good lord, spandex overload!

In terms of video games, I sometimes feel like I am a very sheltered gamer. Switching to and forth between a Gameboy game, then switching to a SNES Game and then finally switching to a Gameboy Advance game, and the cycle starts again, but I say no more! No more shall I turn to familiar namesakes and boldly go into the unknown and review something entirely different from another system! Which, thanks to the advice of malachitedragon, I have decided to review this game known as “Phantasy IV: The End of The Millenium”*

(*: To some die-hard Phantasy fans, this is known as Phantasy Star: The Apology, due to the third installment being pretty much forgotten about.)

Treasure Hunt: “Review of “Wario Land 3”

October 14, 2009
GWAHHHHHH!!

GWAHHHHHH!!

Every so often comes  agame that grabs ahold of my attention and doesnt let it go for days, weeks, or even months. Such a game that falls into the category is this next game, Wario Land 3 for the GameBoy Color. As you know, I did an earlier review that showcased the very first Wario Land game, and needless to say I liked it. Will it’s third installment be able to grab ahold of my shorteened attention span? Will it stop me from screaming, “GWAHHHHH!!” and run into a wall, hoping to break it with only using my shoulder? Read on, folks!

Logic Fails: Review of “Operation Logic Bomb”

October 12, 2009
Logic Bomb? My god..

Logic Bomb? My god..

I’m a little fence with some shooter games. Some of them are quite boring and you can easily cruise through probably a quarter of the game without noticing, or you can spend that same time cursing every single imaginable deity as you use your 20th continue(I’m looking at you, Contra 3!). This is not entirely the case with Operation Logic Bomb as it mixes both loads of action and an incredibly limited Continue system. Just to give you a heads up, you get three continues. Three.

This is Scary How?: Review of “Ghoul Patrol”

October 8, 2009
It rhymes! That's scary enough, right?

It rhymes! That's scary enough, right?

What do you get when you mix a completely unrelated game, executive meddling, zombies, and chasing down helpless people in the midst of hordes of “horrible” monsters? Well, you get Ghoul Patrol for the Super NES! Ghoul Patrol could be considered the illegitimate child of the first game, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, and also the result of Executive Meddling as it was considered to be a totally unrelated game to ZAMN, which ultimately made it bombed commercially and no sequels were further considered.

Pith Helmets: Not just for Safari's

Pith Helmets: Not just for Safari's

First of all, I’m terribly sorry by the sudden lack of reviews. I took a little trip out of state, and I sorta dropped the ball there. Sorry.

Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 is a platforming  game for the Nintendo Gameboy that was released in 1994 and was produced by the late Gunpei Yokoi. It was the first game to feature Wario as both a playable character and the main character, with the debut of Captain Syrup and her Brown Sugar Pirates who are recurring series of villains in the Wario Land series.
