A place for me to talk about all the games I play. I will try not to talk about the current popular stuff that everyone else talks about.

Kunio-kun Series

A few of the early Kunio games for the NES werelocalized for the North American market. These include Renegade, River City Ransom, Super Dodge Ball, Crash ‘n the Boys: Street Challengeand Nintendo World Cup, which were heavily “Americanized” versions of the Kunio-kun games. Technōs Japan has released over twenty Kunio-kun titles for the Famicom, Game Boy, and Super Famicom in Japan.

I got one of these beasts yesterday at a garage sale for cheap. I haven’t been able to get the cd to work yet. The light comes on, but the disc does not spin and the BIOS screen freezes at the earth with no music and no logo. When I have time, I plan to take it apart and clean everything to see if that makes a difference. It was still an incredible deal for the 32X and the copy of Star Wars arcade alone.
Anyone had a similar problem with their Sega CD?
Turns out the power cord for the CD was bad. Replaced that and the whole thing works perfectly.

After watching that Game Center CX interview with the guy who created Pokemon, I wanted to play some of his other games he mentioned. This game is so much fun. It is like concentration: the action puzzler. It says by Hudson Soft in this video, but really they just distributed it. It was distributed by Namco in Japan, but developed by GameFreak in 1989.

Castle Quest (1993)
Not shown here is the pig that I was too slow to capture upon defeating him. This is a weird game. Pokemon chess is the best way to describe it. I kind of liked it, but also found it a little tedious. I did not learn until I was almost dead how to use magic, so when I play it again, I may change my opinion if I learn to use my magic properly.
Yes, my character’s name is RZA.

Nintendo wrist watch games (1989)

I had the zelda one when I was younger. I probably still have it in a box somewhere.

Ren & Stimpy: Veediots (1993)

I didn’t understand this game from a plot standpoint. Why did Stimpy hurt him, why were there so many tvs in this house, what was with the ears? The worst part about this game was the collision detection and bounce back.

Journey to Silius (1990)

I like that the primary weapon looks like the zapper.
