86) Renegade (NES) (3.5) (9/12) (~30 minutes)
87) Metroid: Samus Returns (9.0) (9/18) (11h35m)

Yep, Samus Returns is a good'un. I've already talked a lot about the game elsewhere, so I don't remember which points I have or haven't hit.

At any rate, the game eventually shifts away from the melee attack; once you've got your beams, you pretty much nearly forget about it except for bosses. Enemies in the final area can still take a lot of hits, though. I also wish that I could control the game with a d-pad. Still, the 360 aiming is very useful. This would work even better on a system with dual analogs *coughswitchcough*, but is implemented about as well as possible on a single analog stick.

MercurySteam has pushed the 3DS to the edge, too. It's a great-looking game, one that almost hangs to the full framerate. One area had drops, but it's such a minor thing that it's not worth dinging them on it. I wish the visuals were a little less muddy in 2D; some of those color schemes are... different. They look amazing in 3D, though, and there are lots of neat touches in the backgrounds all over the place. A lot of care was given to the presentation.

I've seen it mentioned elsewhere, but the game feels very "dense". Indeed, there are tons of powerups scattered about, with puzzles abounding on how to get them, lots of enemies, environmental navigation riddles, the works. Despite the 10-15 hour run time, there's very little fat here.

Bosses are fun, for the most part. Encountering a new Metroid always prompts an "oh, crap" moment, but you'll figure them out eventually. I did have a nearly perfect run on the last Omega I fought, which was pretty sweet. There are a few other bosses that I won't name, but one of them is tough but doable, the other is very frustrating; I died to it a bunch. And no, it's not the last boss.

On another message board I frequent, response to the game has been surprisingly polarizing. There are quite a few that just flat-out don't like it. Of course, this being a game, it's not going to please everyone. If you're looking more for superb atmosphere with breezy (for the most part) combat, Super Metroid is a better choice. Well, actually, Super Metroid is probably the best choice period (that or Zero Mission), but whatevs. If you want a game with nary a lull in sight, Nintendo and MercurySteam has your back.

(Final stats: 11h35m, 62.7%; 13h25m, 100%.)

Device 6 is short, but brilliant, interactive novel/escape puzzle game. It is one of the most unique gaming experiences I have had in years, and it is absolutely deserving of its critical praise. IMO, Simogo AB is one of the most exciting developers working today, and I am looking forward to getting through the rest of its games. (I loved the similarly brilliant Year Walk when I played it a few years ago.)


Yes, a thousand times this! To be honest, they are really the only mobile game developer I give a shit about. Year Walk is the weakest of their more "experimental" games, in my opinion...but OMG you must prepare for the awesomeness of The Sailor's Dream!

Yes. There are a lot of good developers doing good work on the platform - Square-Enix/Taito comes to mind - but Simogo is the only one I think that is really focused on the platform's unique potential. (That is, a lot of other, good developers make games that would work on PCs or consoles, but Simogo's games really wouldn't work anywhere else.) Simogo had a sale a few weeks ago, and I picked up a lot of their games, including The Sailor's Dream, and I am really looking forward to it.

I know my rating for Rambo might be higher than you'd expect, but hear me out. The game is actually a passable, if aggressively mediocre, action adventure game. You'll run around as Rambo, recreating your trip into 'Nam just like the second movie. It follows the plot really well, especially the part where you fight skeletons and robots. Man, I loved that part in the movies! :lol:

Anyway, kidding aside, most of the game is a giant navigation puzzle, and it's made more confusing when areas wrap around on each other, but they don't do so consistently; you can go left and loop around the same screen you were on, and immediately go right and be on a brand new screen. Plus, you can go north and south on markers indicating as such. That's not to hard to fathom, as lots of games do it, but combined with the above weirdness and some nondescript areas with the same enemies, and you'll be confused for quite a while.

Still, there's a rudimentary leveling system here, beating bosses gives you extra health, and you amass a stockpile of weapons, most of which are pretty helpful (and also weaker than your knife, ha!). And it's never too bad; checkpointing is somewhat forgiving and you've also got passwords if you're not sliding through with save states. Most enemies and bosses aren't very tough, but the last one can be without a full stock of health and potions.

It's not anything amazing. But it's amazingly weird and strangely ambitious for a licensed game. I can't really recommend it unless you're really curious about it. It's not as bad as its reputation suggests, at any rate.

EDIT: I finally gave in and bought a copy of Return of Double Dragon. It's typically cheaper than the US release, and it's considered to be the better version on top of that. I played through on hard. I also jacked up the number of continues, but didn't need to; I'd have finished with the default complement.

The primary change with this one is that it's a much more typical brawler. The NES games saw fit to add a lot of platforming elements, for good or for ill. This one, not at all. Some of the move set has changed, too. The cyclone kick is done by charging your meter over halfway by holding the L/R button. If not at halfway, you'll do a spinning backfist, and the maxed meter sees you go all rage-style on folks, knocking them down with one hit while it lasts. Also added is a block/counter move. It'll keep a lot of hits from connecting, but certain blows will also catch the enemy in an armlock, at which point you can smack them or toss them.

Honestly, though, the most effective move in the game will be your fists and good crowd management. Enemies (at least on Hard) block a ton, so to get them to stop blocking, you need to be at just the right distance. Your punch length is conveniently about right for this. It's also the quickest move you have, making it that much better for just flat-out not dying.

The best weapon in the game is the nunchucks. Once you get them, you'll rip through enemies. It's like easy mode. Too bad you can't keep it from area to area.

For my money, this is much better than the first two Final Fight games. It's a little slower, but it's also got a bit more combat variety, so it gets points in my book for that. It felt to me like Technos Japan was going downhill from here, though. Too bad, I loved their earlier stuff.

In the last months i've played a lot of Red Alert 2 and also Yuri's Revenge; beaten on both sides; most of the way through Tiberium Sun at the moment, beaten Dune 2000 on two of the Houses, and working through the other games too in the genre; Red Alert 3, Tiberium Sun Firestorm, Emperor of Dune, C&C Generals and Zero Hour, etc. Awesome games. Every so often i'll run these and with these (and others not mentioned) can't get tired of them either. Bought an old i3 computer (and spare one) with Windows 7, to exclusively play these old games without issues.

Wow, hitting the RTS hard. How do you feel about stuff like Total Annihilation and Homeworld?

As much as I enjoy FF1 and FF2, I agree. Super Double Dragon is really great, especially co-op. I love all the different moves and martial arts animations. The slower pace lends a more tactical approach.

Have you played Return of Double Dragon, the SFC release of SDD? The version we got in the West was actually a beta version. The Japanese version is actually done, so I wanna say the differences are it runs a bit better, the music is better, and there's an extra stage or two. I had a lot of fun playing through it with a friend a while back :)
