I have taken a recent interest in LCD games, especially Nintendo's, and I have found some cool sites with great games.
http://www.pica-pic.com/ is a really cool site that has dozens of various perfectly emulated games, ranging from Game & Watches,
to bizarre Japan only games, and also some Soviet versions of Nintendo's Game & Watches. The layout is really simple, all the games have customizable controls and even leader boards! Currently, the owner is creating a fl
Back then, Richard Williams had a dream. He promised to make the greatest animated film of all time. It took 30 years just to get close to finishing the film. Unfortunately, it never was finished. Only 85% was done, and then the film was taken from Richard William's hands. It was finished by other people, but butchered beyond relief. Several scenes of amazing animation were cut, and third rate songs, voice-overs, and animation were put in. Richard Williams created a work print
Incase you haven't heard of it, there is a really cool shooter for the SG-1000. This amazing game is Gulkave, which was also home-brewed for Coleco a few years ago. It is an a mind-blowing, gorgeous, fast, 30 stage affair from Compile. Currently, I am finding research for an article on Gulkave that i am working on for Hardcore Gaming 101. I found a lot of my research so far, and I am currently trying to 1CC the game if possible. So far I can make it to the 4th fortress on stage
Recently I have taken an interest in Game and Watches. They are too expensive for me right now, but they are great fun online. There are 60 different Game and Watch games! Many of them are very unique and bizarre Mario and Donkey Kong sequels. Out of the games I've played, one stands out. It's called Mario Bomb Squad. The premise is that Mario is in the Army during the Vietnamese War, and he must give it to his buddy to blow up the Vietnamese. But, he must watch out for the ene
If you guys already read my Card Catcher blog entry, you know that I was having a hard time playing Champion Ice hockey. Well, I have to say, it's really fun!
Considering this is my first ice hockey game, it's awesome. There is no player customizing or anything, you just select your difficulty and play by yourself or with a friend. It's your team, the Reds, versus the Blues. Battle it out in the ice hockey match! The game lasts for three 20 minute periods(sped up to 10). On
Well just a few days ago I received my Sega Card Catcher for the good ol' SG-1000! Now incase you're wondering, the Card Catcher lets you play My Card games, instead of just cartridges. The card games are like PC Engine HuCards, and were made as a cheaper alternative to the cartridge format. While the cards had less memory than the carts, surprisingly many of the cards had much more complicated games than the carts. All time classics such as Gulkave, Dragon Wang(don't laugh), and H.E.R.O. were e
Many of you are probably familiar with Choplifter! on many other systems, such as Apple II, Colecovision, 7800, and Sega Master System(arcade port). It's a basic but difficult game where you must fly around in a chopper and rescue hostages that look like the people from Lode Runner, while dodging fire from tanks and jets. The best version of the original version is in my opinion the SG-1000 version. It's converted by Sega, and unlike the Master System version isn't a port of the arcade, but the
Well, this is my first blog entry, so here I go.
The SG-1000 is a system that not many people know of, and very few actually own like myself. It was Sega's first system, and is quite a fun system despite being rare. Games such as Flicky, Hustle Chumy, H.E.R.O., and many more make up the limited but solid library of around 70 actual games(many of the others are just computer software for the SC-3000 computer variant). Several of the games on the system have been or are being converted for th
