Let’s Play Sonic the Hedgehog: Spring Yard Zone

•August 14, 2009 • 1 Comment

Spring Yard Zone is my favorite zone in Sonic the Hedgehog. It’s probably the catchy song in the level and the whole night time theme to it that is pretty neat to me. There are lots of traps around the level, which kind of sucks, but you get lots of air and bounce around quite a bit in the level.

Snatcher MSX2 Version

•August 7, 2009 • Leave a Comment

I’ve been taking the MSX2 version of Snatcher for a whirl. I’m not sure if I would have became a Snatcher fan if this was the game I would have played to start me off in the series. The little music beats are alright, I’m not really a fan of it…I’m wondering if it is better on the PC-Engine version of the game. The noise that plays when characters are supposed to talk is annoying and as far as I am aware there is no way to turn it off. Text dumps itself on the screen in a stream, so it would be pretty hard to do anything other than a video LP of the game, and I can’t find a good emulator for it either. The one I have been using runs painfully slow. Other than that, the games are similar, with minor differences in the MSX2 version (such as Gillian Seed having the option to stare at boobs). Right now I’m about at the scene where Gillian heads to the factory after Jean. I’ll update soon on it.

The retro looking graphics are a little appealing to me.

Let’s Play: Sonic the Hedgehog-Marble Zone

•August 5, 2009 • Leave a Comment

Marble Zone is one of those zones that just makes me paranoid. It’s the beginning of finding lots of booby traps that will seal your fate if you are not fast enough or if you do not pay attention quick enough. Some of the enemies can really mess with your rings. I’m really not a fan of it and I wish I could just skip it, but unfortunately it’s the second stage of Sonic the Hedgehog. The music is pretty neat, but not my favorite of the stages in Sonic the Hedgehog.

Let’s Play: Sonic the Hedgehog-Green Hill Zone

•July 30, 2009 • Leave a Comment

A guy named Cybershell does some good runs of Sonic the Hedgehog games. I’ll be taking you through them. Starting with the first Sonic the Hedgehog. The first run is through the Green Hill Zone of Sonic the Hedgehog. It’s the first zone you encounter and one of my personal favorites. I remember going through this as a kid and just running wild. I’ll warn you that Cybershell does like to curse quite often, but it is in a humorously entertaining light and it is actually fun to watch him mistakes versus it just being annoying that the player messes up.

Dragon Quest II Reflection

•July 26, 2009 • Leave a Comment

So I finished Dragon Quest II. It was much harder than the first game! I had to grind for quite some time to finish up the game, but it was all worth it. Seeing the credits roll again felt great,  I feel like I’m getting further into the series and now can say I beat the second installment of the series. It’s cool that parts of the game are set in past spots of the first game, reminds me of playing Final Fantasy X-2, except that it does not ruin a great game and make it something totally different.

I barely survived the last battle. My main hero put the finishing blow with his last bit of HP left.

The End 🙂

Dragon Quest II Beginning

•July 24, 2009 • Leave a Comment

So I started Dragon Quest II. Most of the beginning is spent chasing after the hero from another kingdom, whose name is Art in my game. Maybe it’s short for Arthur? That would be a better name. Since this is the GBC version the character limit is four characters I believe, so I guess they couldn’t get crazy with the name. I spent some time chasing after him and then discovered that he is only at level one when I caught up with him, which means I need to grind him up to my status. He has magic, which should be useful.

I also visited the Hero’s Spring while searching for Art and was sprinkled with some water, unfortunately it did NOT level me up. Now I’m embarking with Art into the world.
