Let me know if they port the game to iOS or the Wii U.


:lol:

Prediction: by this time next year you'll be deep into GOG.com and Steam.

Thief Gold hasn't aged super well, imo. All of the levels in the undead-infested areas are really annoying. The 2nd game is soooo much better, although I would recommend at least trying Thief Gold before Thief 2, because they are very similar.

I digress. I played Thief Gold, 2, and System Shock 2 completely fresh only a few years ago and they frankly blew my mind. I'm pretty sure I haven't played anything as atmospheric since Thief. Some of the levels like the zombie cathedral, or the elemental towers, or the fire cave temple area that had no enemies at all, were some head scratchers at times with me getting lost... but it's that quirkiness to the first game and the weirder storyline that makes me like it a little more than 2. Also you can't deny that the final level 2 is flatout ridiculous, lmfao, that level is as big as the entire game. Think it almost took me two weeks to figure out, and I'm not joking in the least. I don't know if I could ever play that level again. But I loved how some of 2's levels reminded me of Deus Ex, like the docks level.

This is a four-player tournament fighter in the Riki Kunio series. It's actually very solid. It's too bad the translation I played was pretty terrible, and seemed to have issues on the actual hardware as well as far as text boxes and overflow and such. It might be part of the original patch, too. Anyway, it's a ton of fun, and the mechanics should be quite familiar to anyone who loved River City Ransom, although this adds quite a bit more into the mix. Highly recommended for a quick jaunt through single-player or competitive play.

I've been spending most of the past few days in a waiting room at the hospital, so have been picking up the Vita from time to time for arcade-style games. Exhuminator's recent PS1 playing inspired some time spent with fighters, which I'll now put up on here...

Hell yeah, Cap is one of my favorites. Might have been a classic if it had a few more months to diversify the enemies and level design... but the core gameplay is really great and polished. Also some really excellent music. I have a finished, unpublished blog post review that I'll be posting sometime this week, probably... and another post covering the arcade (and ports) version.

Same goes for the Double Dragon series... right now I'm just trying to decide if I should break it down by entry, with each one covering arcade/nes... or split it up into arcade trilogy and NES trilogy, because they play quite differently.

Really? Those were my favorite levels. Zombies, ghosts, demons, insect monsters, dinosaur monsters, etc. I loved all that stuff. The absence of such from Thief 2 was a big part of why I didn't enjoy Thief 2 as much.

This man knows quality gaming when he plays it.

Sorry to hear you've had to spend time in a hospital for any reason. Glad to hear you got some of that sweet PS1 fighter lovin' though. I'm not done binging myself just yet.

@Sarge - I can't help but laugh that despite recently acquiring a PS4, it's NES games that you're burning through. I don't know if that says more about the PS4 or the NES. :lol:
