Happy Nintendo Day everyone!
While i must admit I don’t understand the significance of the day, apparently November 21st is Nintendo day. I have a sneaky suspicion that this is just a marketing release date of several new Nintendo games. Of course Super Smash Bros for the Wii U is a big deal… and several people that I work with are big on the Pokemon releases (personally I couldn’t care less about the latter). I celebrated by playing the original Mega Man… kind of stupid, but hey so is a blog dedicated to Nintendo.
Tomorrow I am to strike a major deal… 40 NES games for $300. It actually is a big deal as several games are on my wanted list, and they guy discounted me big time on most of the games since I was buying so many. My wife is going to be mad at me, but Santa Claus is going to be extra generous this year… or so rumour has it. I can’t think of anything that would please me more as a kid than getting 40 NES games!
I just got an order in from jjgames.com. I’m happy with my order though I’m disappointed in myself for not picking up on the “tearing” issue with The Last Starfighter. Half the top label is gone. I have no one to blame but myself as they are quite up-front at jjgames.com as to the condition of the game. Stupid, stupid, stupid!!
In other news, I just watched a guy on youtube beat Thunder Force IV on the Mega Drive on maniac mode. This guy is the master of this game, and I had to make a comment saying that Lebron James is a chump compared to this guy. Who ever it is that played this game on MANIAC mode is truly insane: I could never compete with you sir! That being said, this chapter of the series pales in comparison to it’s predecessors. The music is good, but not great. The graphics are better, but not smooth. It just isn’t the same fun as two or three.
Also on Sega news… Faery Tale Adventure is a really crummy game. I don’t know how a company could put their name on such a piece of crap. The game is an RPG which I normally love, but wow was it ever done terribly. The town you start out in is desolate, the first enemies you come across can easily kill you, and the text is boring as all sweet badoinky doing. This is such a shame as the front cover looks so good! There are dragons to fight, treasure to be found… what more could you ask for… apparently more than this. This game just sucks big time!
I also watched a youtube video on this game to put me in a better mood. Thank goodness because I was getting pretty depressed by seeing Faery Tale Adventure. Who would want to own such a piece of garbage?! At least it isn’t on Nintendo.
Again happy Nintendo Day!
Keep on gaming,
