Kind of amusing that "if everything goes well" (said in May), I will have waited for my preorder of a rerelease of 25-year-old-games for 23 months.


I may have a problem... I'm playing Gems of War on Switch while playing Rogue Tower on PC. No wonder I feel playing games feels like work.


I asked Dall-E Mini what the best NES, SNES, N64, Wii, Wii U and NSW games were. First two were clearly 2D, N64 had polygonal 3D, GCN was daaark and had lots of GUI, Wii and Wii U were bright and colourful. NSW, though...


3 is such a difficult number for games. HL3, Gravity Rush 3, Sonic 3, Mother 3, Dino Crisis 3, Bayonetta 3... let's see Xenoblade Chronicles 3.


Made the mistake of playing the story mode of terrapin game first, but all's good, I'm not getting past boss 3 in Final Vendetta.


If I turn down the colour slider on a modern TV, is the end result the same as if it were a B&W TV, or are the colours mapped to greyscale in a different fashion?


I don't think you can guess who this is supposed to be unless you check the prompt. I understand the real boxes have labels for this purpose, too?


Kirby may have been made of yarn and putty, but here's a case why Kirby won't visit the Origami King.


So, I wanted to make things easier for Dall-E. This is Ghostbusters in Silent Hill with nurses.


Maybe a bit of Midna there in the hair, too, I think. I guess I was wrong about the term "gun molly".


The way people have talked about the number of new horror games in space... what's the actually the first one? Alien on C64 comes to my mind as an option, but are there older ones? (Alien on Atari 2600 doesn't look like horror.)


Didn't quite turn the way I hoped.


Hmm. Deadeus (2019) is a Gameboy horror game, which is apparently also free, but I got on an Evercade cart. I'm curious to see what it can do...


I like how Sharopolis looks into technical implementation of old games (without actually going to code level). Just sharing a video in case someone interested in this doesn't know of the channel already.


Arkagis Revolution (2019) for Megadrive/Evercade

As a writing exercise, I'm trying to stick to around 500 word length reviews. Feedback on the writing would be nice. Arkagis Revolution (trailer video) is a Megadrive game from 2020 (says the Evercade menu, the title screen above say...


In case this idea of "what could X have sounded on a different platform" might be of interest to someone.


Time for the yearly harvest of a spruce fence again. Or it was -- I was a week too late.


I think it's time I changed my blog series from Fledgling retrodev to Amateur retrodev. Four years and four games might be enough to a status upgrade.


Eternal status:


Evercade 2nd anniversary stream: Okay, Toaplan and Irem Arcade collections... I'm in. The new handheld with IPS screen and TATE mode - I might pass.


I'm actually feeling the hype. Huh. I don't like this feeling.


My most anticipated console stream this summer: Evercade 2nd Anniversary. I suppose this reflects where my future in games is going.


1) I think I prefer the actual version on 3DS/Sega Ages. 2) Maybe not quite space shuttle cockpit level of buttons, but...


My greatest achievement of 2020-2022 has been to get to level 2 of Jim Power and the Lost Dimension in 3D after only tens of attempts.


In an attempt to use up the honey I got from a coworker last year, I made rather trivial honey-roasted peanuts. Thankfully I'm taking them to the office in the morning, because I've been eating too many of them.
