I'm playing Indomitable Infiltrator.

It's a really shitty platformer and it's crazy hard.

Really who wastes their life making such crap? :?

Played some of Congo's Caper for the SNES today. Nice little platformer by data east. Lots of fun. Kinda reminds me of Joe and Mac and man the controls are nice and tight. I just love playing it. Also has a password save feature.

Well it is technically a sequel (Tatakae Genshijin 2 in Japan).

Joe & Mac is alright. I actually prefer the SNES port over the arcade original.

I've got the PCB and yea, they definitely changed some of the things for the better. Strangely enough, the MD port is pretty much the arcade, albeit a little scaled down.

Recently fired up Contra for DS! Lush graphics and tight control, but that odd, unnatural gap between screens makes for an odd 'phantom zone' when leaping and climbing. Bothers my eyes a bit. :?

Tobari and the Night of the Curious Moon

A cute little Japanese game I found on Steam. Reminds me a bit of both Mario and Kirby.

As soon as I finish AvP I'm hopping back into Metal Storm (I'm so close I can taste it) and Super Star Wars. I wish the latter wasn't so ball crushingly hard and had passwords.

Playing a bit of Demon's Crest.

The graphics are beautiful and the gameplay is top-notch.

Wow, that is beautiful! Looks a lot like Gargoyle's Quest for GameBoy....related?

Yes. All three games were developed by Capcom, and Demon's Crest is the third game in a loosely-connected series: (1) Gargoyle's Quest (GB); (2) Gargoyle's Quest II (NES); (3) Demon's Crest (SNES). The series is also somewhat related to Capcom's Ghouls n' Ghosts series (i.e., Ghosts 'n Goblins (ARC/GBC/NES/PSP), Ghouls 'n Ghosts (ARC/GEN), and Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (SNES), which, in turn, is related to Capcom's Maximo series (i.e., Maximo: Ghosts to Glory (PS2) and Max vs. The Army of Zin (PS2)). Firebrand, the main character in the Gargoyle's Quest series also makes appearances in other Capcom games (and even one SNK game!), and his most recent, playable appearances are in SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos (ARC/XBOX) and Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (ARC/PS3XBOX 360).

I hope that clears it up! :lol:
