Dear Retro Power,
I've never read a Nintendo Power in my life, will this fill the void inside of me?

@16bitcatholic 8-3 is such a horribly painful level when you're trying to speed run the game. Those hammer bros....

Switching characters was the main reason why I disliked FFX's combat. Turn-based combat is slow enough as is it... don't make me switch character every frickin' battle...

I'd vote for Jason, but that would be pretty hypocritical of me considering I wrote an entire article on retro games that had too big of a story for ANYONE to care. http://1morecastle.com/2014/07/untold-stories-retro-gaming/

@ericmhunter That is absolutely fantastic! I was actually thinking while writing this that someone had to do something similar!

Has someone pointed out that Bailey brought Robocop before on the NES to talk about the fact that you could punch dogs in the animal cruelty episode which you can find at the following link: http://1morecastle.com/2014/02/73-the-horse-bought-you-the-gun/ ? No? Well I just did. Geez... where are fact checkers when you need them?

Serious lack of help on the second level selection and I don't like the tone the game game has towards you.

Great write-up. Didn't get the chance to catch Street Fighter at the arcades. I was more into the Virtua Fighter, Ergheiz era. And I suck at these games.

I use inverted controls. What do you have against inverted controls? Do I have to make a column about it?I can't say much about the other games, but Metroid Prime? Metroid Prime is an example on how Z-targeting should be used. It uses Z-targeting 100 times better than any other games. It helps Metroid Prime so much.
Z-Targeting allowed newcomers to the FPS genre to actually play the game instead of saying "Shit I suck at dual analogs" and turning off the game. Also, by having Z-targeting facilitating the FPS part, you can concentrate on platforming and exploration. Finally, saving the second analog to switch between power-ups is way more useful in this type of game than the dual analog setup.
And, in conclusion, bagged milk. Congrats on 100 episodes gentlemen!

So, I'm curious. Did she know Barbie before playing this game? Is that even still a thing?

@Chronoslinger Technically, I was screen hearing on that one. And I suck at Starcraft, give me a chance!
@rizzardcore Wait... I meant 3x was porn, but actually, x^3 is porn since it's xxx. And to be honest, I thought you were going to point out that if my reference point was the corner of my own screen instead of the middle, I would not have seen the other screens in my field of view.On an unrelated note, having the freedom to write anything stupid thing that comes to mind on a calculation sheet was SUCH a liberating feeling.

*slow clap* That was some nice work on the episode description! (Though you might want to get that typo on the second line)

Yep... 1MoreCastle needed a dose of "Awwwwww." The previous iterations of that feeling were when we learned that Jason played a Mega Man game.NIcely done. I love your writing style. It fits perfectly for the premice of the series. Can't wait for more!

@ChrisSwartz Oh it doesn't stop there. Even 2nd party could include Eternal Darkness and Turok before the arrival of RE4. But Conker's Bad Fur Day was really a "Scary Movie" video game with the way it treated "mature" themes.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on 98 – Iron Stone
See, Conker's Bad Fur Day is a critic of society in the years when it was released. It came at a time when people were yelling at Nintendo, begging them to bring mature games to the console. Nintendo and Rare said: "Screw it! They want mature themes, we'll give them mature themes."What we received is one of the most immature game ever made, proving, once again, that the mature themes are the most immature. Proposing a widespread society statement that violence, war, objectification of women are just immature and need not exist.Now, in a time when we see Nintendo struggling with 3rd party companies, I ask, do we want to, again, to send them the route of "mature themes"?
@Atsinganoi Keep in mind, this is way too relevant for my taste, but left field enough. I do like the Atari Poop comparison :P

@Aggro Sky The concept may make a comeback in a couple of months, but don't expect me to give you design tips every week. :P

Ok ok ok... Here's exactly what happened after I read your review.
1. I started to type how the game wasn't THAT bad according to my memory.
2. I went back to my review of it (a review I wrote within the half-hour after I finished the game) and realized that, at that time, I pretty much agreed wholeheartedly with all the points you made and then some.
3. I lol'ed again at your "sharpies my catridges" and then I lol'ed because I had compared Donkey Kong Land to a McDonald's poutine.So in the end, it's trying too hard to be an SNES game like most of the "ports" the game boy saw. The cloud stages can go die in hell, you go from an ice stage to a jungle stage in the same world (what's up with that?). The only thing that was "better" than the SNES version are the bosses. They were a lot less boring.Like other miniaturized console games the game boy had: They're not bad, they're just completely irrelevant in this day and age.

@rizzardcore But I put my reference axis at any real number. :P I remembered that!And I'm not a fan of interior design per se. I just looked at some magazines with my gf to redecorate the condo for us to sell and the color scheme reminded me so much of Tetris, I had to write something about it.
2 months ago on The Tetris Book of Design
@TempleofRetro It started as a joke... but further in I realized how much sense it made... Like the colors themselves wanted me to talk about them.
I think I had Super Play Action Football on the SNES. It was okay... Now, Triple Play '99 and '01 deserve more love. One for the hilarious random comments of the announcers, the other because you can have a home run derby in a living room.

With Paper Mario fresh in mind, I'd love to see you tackle Super Mario RPG on the snes. Great review by the way. The Marioness of this game pretty much makes up for 95% of the incredibly charming fun

@Chronoslinger @NintendoLegend @OcarinaOfTom @the_valerie The Wii version isn't that bad...
@JoshuaCaleb75 @Bigjoe91 @jasonlamb @Nintendo_Legend But does it have the sweet tank controls or the mouse and keyboard? Forget it, they'll never get it.
