Overall I think Kamil is "easier" to play with, especially for a first-timer, as Drunk noted in his vid.

Kamil looks like my dude. I'll play 7th Saga one of these days!

I missed your Earthworm Jim vid, drunk. Great stuff. I still absolutely love those games. I agree with you on the Genesis version over the SNES, at least for the first game. Down the Tubes recycles New Junk City's music in the SNES version for some reason, it's lacking the Intestinal stage, and the Genesis version just looks sharper and sounds better. I like the SNES version of 2 more than the Genesis one in that case though. I honestly don't know if I have ever once beaten 2 legitimately. I always get stuck on the newpapers level and never know what to do, but I know I got to the final stage once back in the day and got a game over there. I think you have to race the black crow dude. That overhead bomb stage sucks ass too. I still love 2 a lot and both games are oozing with charm, but yeah I'd probably say I am more fond of the original. I used to think the water race was extremely hard as a kid, but whenever I go back to it now I can get through it fairly easily. The escort mission with the dog is tough, but yeah I can beat this one usually nowadays. The "HD" remake was kind of neat, but them dubbing over Tommy Tallarico's voicing for Jim was a lame move.

I should play more of the Sega CD version of 1 someday. The CD version of 2 is amazing as well. It's cool how all versions just have kickass music.

Fair enough. I'm not very worried about versatility, honestly. Which is probably why I gravitate towards Lux/Wilme, and let my partner fill in the gaps.

Ha, that's not versatility, Sarge. That's showing the world you have balls.

@ SNES drunk, why you no update this thread?

I just watched your newest Nintendo Power video, Drunk With Nintendo Power: Volume 22, March 1991, Metal Storm.

Rapping about video games in a 90's way... If you found that funny, you should check this out: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=50343

That's awesome that you still have your video game notes from back then. And it amused me that you copied something out of a magazine with the good old pen and paper method. I've done that a few times myself. These days, you would just snap a pic of that page with your cell phone. That would have seemed like James Bond tech back then! Your only other option in the 90's would be to pay 10 cents to copy it in black and white at the library. Hell, I remember when my library got a fancy color copier, but it was $1 a page! I guess these days, you wouldn't even have the magazine. You would find that table on a web site and just save the JPEG or whatever.

But that's awesome that you still have your gaming notes. Is there other stuff in that notebook other than that Mega Man table? I still have this folder that's jammed full of mag clippings, notes, and early Internet printouts.

Just a bunch of random passwords for NES, SNES and Game Boy games. It also has written down (poorly) the Donut Land sequence in SMW to unlock the Star World

Hey, there you are!

I was doing most of my YouTubing at work. I had to reset my cache a few weeks ago so it fucked up my feed (I wont log into YouTube at work, so that's that). So long story short, I've been missing your videos since you haven't been posting here to remind me. I'll have to catch up!
