At the prehistoric levels. Really enjoying this soundtrack especially. The puzzles are fun if a bit overreliant on "combat"

For that price, it's absolutely worth it. I don't remember what I paid for my copy back in the day, but my first Game Boy was a Super Game Boy, so it was probably in some bargain bin somewhere; I'd snap up damn near anything I could find, at that point, and it was a pretty unforgettable Summer adventure. There are more Adventure-RPGs in this style than most people realize, but Sword of Hope 2 is among the very few that are actually good, because it has things like Inns and weapon/armor shops that let you restore your health and get stronger, rather than praying to RNG-zus that you don't just end your run from a streak of bad luck. Enjoy!

I really don't care about 'AAA' games, have you seen the stuff I play? Unless Yakuza counts as AAA now, the closest thing may be like...RE8 when I play that, or RE2/RE3 remake. Maybe Bloodstained. I hate open world games, and I hate first person shooters.

I think people whining for third party games is stupid as hell, let the Switch be for Nintendo games, third party games on the Switch will ALWAYS be technically inferior to PS/Xbox/PC. I may not like Nintendo much, but I will say the Switch is fantastic for just that, Nintendo games. Not third party games. First party games. And that's about it.

You gonna looooove Into the Breach. I sure did.

Been singing the same song, but there's a lotta skepticism about the Amico. You'd think the classic gamers of yesteryear would be all over, but... yeah I dunno. They obviously put a lotta work into it and Tommy Tallarico's upbeat and extremely positive about the project. I'd hate for it to crash and burn just because the Internet is laughing at it for whatever reason. Hell, nobody on here seems to be talking about it. Even worse, the big cheeses haven't added the Amico to the list of systems (yet they weren't hesitant to add the PS5 after its presentation last year.) That's how little faith people have in it! What, you people want the same stuff over and over again? I'd play the new Astro Smash and Night Stalker over whatever flavor of the month AAA game they come out with this month.

Well, he's certainly sent you to the right place. I played 2 first, and it's easily the better game in most every way. The game is less grindy, you have party members and more spell variety, the world is less contrived and more visually diverse and interesting, and even the music is largely better. The first game has some story bits, but they're largely plot coupons sculpted in meat that do little more than tell you where to go next; the second game has more of what you'd expect in a JRPG's story, and the only real tie to the first game is that it references that Theo killed the final boss. While playing 2, I remember wishing that I'd experienced that for myself, but it's totally not a big deal. If you're into the Kemco sound, definitely check out both soundtracks, BUT

+ If you're only going to play one of them, play 2, especially if you don't want to spend a ton of time grinding.

+ If you're hell-bent on playing them both, play 1 first, because it's hard to go back to after 2's considerably smoother ride.

That said, I highly recommend at least playing 2, because it's a wonderful mix of Dragon Warrior and Princess Tomato with a pretty cool journey.

Inverse: You need to play the most divisive Zelda game ever on Nintendo Switch ASAP
[Image: Zelda II official art]

I mean... I'm all for supporting Zelda II, but that's kinda stupid.

I saw a tweet from Zelda Univoise saying that "It's been stated several times, but remember to hype responsibly." Ya know it's not a good sign when they flat out hafta tell people that. It's the equivalent of a teacher having to tell her rowdy kids to quiet down in the auditorium. Though given the current generation of the Internet and how things have been, it's pretty much a given. Yes, don't hype yourself so much because you're going to be disappointed when things don't happen the way you want them. Thanks to that, Super Mario 3D All-Stars is a laughing stock, because they ported them and they expected a full on Crash and Spyro treatment, not realizing those games were on the PS1 and not three games from three different consoles, God people are stupid we all know people are gonna bleed on the streets anyway no matter what gets announced at E3, like with that mini direct that finally gave us SMTV info.

By the way ya need new RPG? Get Grandia HD Collection on Switch.

Yeah, I totally get the whole GGR "Retry Stage" thing, is kinda nonsense and I hope they wil patch it, because it was indeed a mistake.
Game was without a doubt hard, and sometimes a bit too much "Trial & Error" for my taste, but all in all it was an enjoyable game, with many difficulty options (which is always a plus for me), a nice remake indeed. Also play it in co-op is a total cakewalk, but still an enjoyable experience.
Didn't know KingK, he looks like a good youtuber, reminded me a bit of Resonant Arc

And thank you Rarity for always checking out my courses. Your support for 'em is greatly appreciated. Feels like the end of an era don't it? The game's been out for almost two years.

Need a different kinda game? Try Letter Quest Remastered or Jetboard Joust.

It's the second model, the top loader. It wouldn't work on my front loader. It's right next to my Genesis model 1 currently, so it's plenty well ventilated.

Hadda huge urge to play Panic Restaurant (which you should play and Mitsume.) The console didn't really get warm, except for the back surface behind the cart. Only thing I could think of upon ejecting the cart is "it was on for half an hour, therefore it is warm." So I dunno. I feel I got my fix for a while so I can safely put away the multicart for now.

I wonder if the specs for the second model NES is different than the first? Also worth noting is that the bottom says "use with AC adapter for NES-002 only." Weird. I'm using the same adapter I used for my first model for years.

Edit: Interestingly, the only differences is the current adapter is 20W while the other one is 17W, which I've used for the first model NES last month with no issues. Confused?

Third party adaptor is being used for NES 2
One meant for NES 2 was being used for NES 1

There might be no real difference though.

I played it a lot, actually. If you search my NES collection with the term Multicart, you'll see all the games I've finished and all the ones I've yet to finish that I've added to the list (plus six Rockman games, making it the first time I've gone through the series on actual hardware.) Not to mention booting it up late at night while watching stuff (like Tank 1990.) It was probably one of the best $25 I've ever spent, honestly... assuming it didn't damage my console.

Maybe... I can just play it once in a while? Mitsume was probably one of the best newer played NES games I've played in ages. There are still a couple of games I'd like to go through. If only there was a definitive answer on whether it's safe or not... I could just be safe and not play it anymore.

Gosh, I don't know... I would hate to have to stop playing it. It was thanks to this that I finally got to play Panic Restaurant and other pricy games, plus discovering other great games like Mitsume ga Tooru. There are two sides to this whole thing. I'm certainly not gonna get any more multicarts, which means I'm only concerned about the only one I have, not counting the GBA one I just got. (Really sucks because I really wanna play Zombie Nation on my NES.)

Would it really be possible for my NES model two to just stop working? Is four months of on and off again use enough to hurt it in the long run? I'm very confused.

I'm not thrilled about buying on PS4 at all, but I'd rather buy third party games on it over Switch, and I'd prefer native controller support and to avoid the issues that PC gaming has. Still, I suppose if I choose not to get a PS5, I'll grab SMT3 and Asha on Steam. Not like it's a bunch of games I got on it, and Steam has sales frequently.

Oh yes, I forgot the most important part, physical games.

I hope the game runs better on PS4. It probably does, most third party games that run like shit on Switch only do so because of how underpowered it is.

That's what I was thinking! If it included the updated Sonic 1 and 2 that'd be sweet, but we can see them totally dropping the ball on it. I can understand Sonic 3K, we don't seem to see it as much but... oh, you know what, why not Knuckles Chaotix? I know the 32X was an unfortunate embarrassment and it began SEGA's downfall, but why not put Chaotix? I don't understand why we yet again need to see 1 and 2 unless it will be the updated versions. Seems like game companies are prone to making strange decisions nowadays. Sadly... yeah, Sonic 1 and 2 would sell more more than releasing Shining Force III or something.

Nay. Other than that one Daniel Ibbertson video, I've never seen you.

Double Dragon III is pretty cruel. I don't think I'll be able to finish it legitimately.

Double Dragon IV is utterly jarring. It's like they were trying to do a Mega Man 9 but it didn't turn out too good. From recycling sprites (across the three NES) to making at least four enemies appear on screen surrounding you (almost makes cooping encouraged) making your chances of survival shrink, I think it could've been better. Make new sprites, make it 4:3, that's what I would've done.

Think I'm joking? We got DD1 Abobo with the visor guy from 2. Your ladder climbing sprite is from 1 even though your regular sprite is from 2. It's really bizarre.

I'll say this: Jay & Silent Bob Mall Brawl did the NES brawler throwback better. It might not be fair to compare it to a series as long running as Double Dragon, but it hits all the right notes. The fact that it's actually an NES game and not a Shovel Knight style throwback where it's NES except not really is purdy admirable. More indie makers should just go that extra mile.
