James Bond 007: The Duel. The Kremlin (1993) Sega Genesis

Coming four years after Timothy Dalton’s last filmic appearance as the suave secret agent, The Duel marks the last official appearance of Dalton as 007. So what game will they give him as an official send off?  Continue reading

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Palcom (1990) Nintendo

The original TMNT game gets a lot of bad press, and I am fairly sure this is entirely down to an Angry Video Game Nerd video way back in the day, as almost everybody that bangs on about it being bad talks about the Dam level. So obviously I thought I’d go back and see what it is like and how far I can get. Continue reading

Darkwing Duck. Capcom (1992) Nintendo

Did you know Darkwing Duck isn’t actually set in the DuckTales universe ? I know Launchpad McQuack is here, but, according to the creators (source), they are separate. And on that bombshell.

Mega Man, Capcom (1987) Nintendo

It has taken me 25 years to finally beat Mega Man 1. I can remember borrowing MM1 and MM2 as a child from my mum’s friend, at that age I don’t think I could beat a level, but as time went on, I’d whip it out and have the occasional bash… Continue reading

Mega Man X2. Capcom (1995) Super Nintendo

Mega Man X2

I love Mega Man X, and I even shelled out £120 buying a boxed copy, and it got me thinking, guess I’ll try and get X2…

Don’t bother trying to get X2 in PAL regions, that shit is expensive. Jap, and NTSC regions have it better, and they can get copies for $60, PAL it’ll cost you £300 minimum for X2…

So… I bought it on the WII Virtual Arcade for £7.
