  1. A little something from Jessica Calvello: 

    Easily the best video of the year.


  2. Friendly reminder that the Pickford Brothers have a Plok webcomic that is still going. Link: http://www.zee-3.com/plok/

    That game's soundtrack still kicks ass to this very day.

    1. DragonGrafx-16


      The Plok game is amazing with some great music... I never realized there is an ongoing comic. 

  3. Here's something I made upon seeing it in a YouTube video. In case anyone is wondering, I did encounter the glitch that inspired said video. https://www.bandlab.com/fighting_zenith/smb-extended-1up-f71be1ed?revId=fad0b8f7-2d5e-e911-b49e-2818789a4d3d
  4. Just played it in Popeye mode, and this game justifies the XM. Mr. DeCrescenzo, you and Perry have gotten my seal of approval.
  5. Revontuli, I found someone on Artstation who can be commissioned for box art for when Descent and Cache are finally done.
  6. Judging from the latest video, you don't pull any punches at all when it comes to enhancements.

      Here's a Goa Track that I also made: https://shanefromslidell.bandcamp.com/track/dark-mandala

      I'd like to hear your honest thoughts on these two.

    2. GoldLeader


      I like the keyboard sounds on the top song.

  7. I have to say, you are getting better at not just programming, but sprite animation as well. I'll wait for you to finish the other two first before you get to work on this.
  8. Am I the only person who thinks that a One Piece MMO/Open World game would be doable if Toei and Bandai Namco played their cards right? At least it would be a better Assassin's Creed 4 or Sea of Thieves than both of them.

  9. By the way, just how did you pull off the parallax scrolling in Track & Field and Sonic Runner? (Unless you plan on keeping that a secret, in that case, never mind.)
  10. I look forward to three of those games being completed, especially Track & Field.
  11. Arabian Fight:

    I think this may be the game that resulted in the term janky being coined. This game, despite having an interesting use of sprite scaling and hand-drawn/cel-animated characters, felt more like a tech demo rather than an arcade game. For Sega brawlers, stick with Golden Axe (save for the misbegotten Beast Rider) and Streets of Rage.  As for arcade Arabian-themed games, Taito's Arabian Magic is still top-notch.

    1. retrorussell


      Yeah, this was awful.  Some good ideas just crapped on with poor scrolling and awful sprite scaling.  I think they just tried too much with this game and the end result was irredeemably clunky.

    2. moycon


      Looks cool though.

  12. RIP Jerry Stiller from Seinfeld and Hairspray (1987).

    1. GoldLeader


      Oh, That sucks! ...  R.I.P.

  13. I've always wondered what ever happened to Novotrade/Appaloosa Interactive? Best known for Ecco the Dolphin.

    1. ApolloBoy


      If this is anything to go by, they either shut down or got absorbed by Eidos after they finished working on Jaws Unleashed: http://gdri.smspower.org/wiki/index.php/Novotrade_International/Appaloosa_Interactive

    2. SlidellMan


      Thanks, I appreciate that.

  14. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this mock up I made.

    1. Magmavision2000


      It looks nice! Is it a Megaman like?

    2. SlidellMan


      More like Demon's Crest.

  15. Vintage Willys, Kaiser, & AMC Jeeps > Modern Jeeps. (To be fair, the modern Wrangler and Gladiator have more leg room.)

      Road Rhinos, that's a good one! To tell you the truth, I wouldn't mind owning a Jeep Gladiator/J-Series truck. I would own a CJ, but I'm a bit too tall.

    3. simbalion


      ^ Actually Road Rhino is a term I've heard several times over the years as a nickname for the old full-size Jeep Wagoneer. Sadly, I could never find one with a floor left in it as they rusted out bad. I wouldn't mind having an old DJ5 Postal Jeep though..

    4. ApolloBoy


      I hate SUVs, but I've always told myself that if I ever had to get one it'd be an XJ Cherokee (preferably stock!).

  16. Streets of Rage 4 > Final Fight Streetwise.

    1. zetastrike


      Streets of Rage Remake >>>>> SoR4

  17. Super Castlevania IV and Bloodlines are still my favorite 16-Bit titles in the series. (I have no opinion on the x68000 game, though.)

      Bloodlines is the one I haven't beaten yet. I love this series, the classic games anyway. 

    3. masschamber


      Castlevania adventure rebirth is just as good as the 4 major 16 bit entries and the good, but not as good snes dracula x

      shame it has been consigned to wiiware for what seems forever.

    4. BassGuitari


      Ever try Dracula X for PC Engine?

  18. For those wondering why the Super NES version of Valis IV ended up being the dissected port, Telenet had Laser Soft do the job. Had it been a better developer, it would have been closer to the TG-16/PC-Engine CD original with fewer cuts.

    1. SlidellMan


      Correction: Laser Soft was also responsible for the original, especially considering that they are a part of Telenet. There I go, making questionable assumptions again.

    2. zetastrike


      I thought the SNES version was so boring.  The levels felt very empty.  

  19. One of my favorite final battle songs: 

    I couldn't think of anything better to end Fire Emblem: Three Houses on.


  20. I see something Grade Amazing in development...keep going, Mr. DeCresenzo!
  21. I've been using Atari Dev Studio for 7800Basic, and it hit the nail on the head.
  22. I would rather take twenty of Dennis Miller*, Sgt. T-Ben Boudreaux, and Norm MacDonald over another Samantha Bee or Sam Seder any day of the week. *='87-'02 Miller, I might add.

    1. save2600


      Norm's a funny guy. Have one of his stand-up comedy CD's. Simply titled 'Me Doing Standup'.
