Blazing Lasers? You mean Gunhed?

Gunhed being the Japanese name for Blazing Lazers, sure. But now a MOVIE by the same name that came out in the same year? Color me all WTF?!

(I see now, the game was based on the movie, and of course it got an American style "anygame" treatment".)

Well not to be a US centric bastard, but it came out in Japan and Europe, but not in the US. So that limits the number of people who experienced it and talk about it (in Elglish anyway) quite a bit.

Awesome videos Metal Jesus. One thing I love about the NES/SNES library being so huge, there are still a ton of games I've never heard of.

Only suggestion for a hidden gem that I could make is Street Fighter Alpha 2. The SNES port of this game flew under so many peoples' radar when it came out. I never heard of the port until I read a Racketboy article mentioning it. I consider it a gem simply because its the only example of a modern fighter on a 16-bit system and I think it plays well despite being constrained by the SNES's limitations.

Good video as always with your vids MetalJesus. It was interesting to see that no RPGs were selected. Perhaps in segment 3 there will be 1 or 2?

Part 3 will have an RPG in it. One that I was really excited for John to pick out. Coming soon!

Just wanna say Metal Jesus, love your videos and always look forward to new ones. Really enjoyed the SNES stuff as a few titles were mentioned that I had when I was a kid.

Also, what is it about Seattle? Seems like all the cool kids are from those parts. Might have to visit one day!

Peace out
