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

Sunset Riders. Konami (1993) Super Nintendo

For a while now people have been telling me to try Sunset Riders out, and while I wasn’t ignoring them I just couldn’t be fucked paying the exorbitant prices for a copy in the UK. Fortunately I have found a Spanish retailer that will post to the UK meaning I was able to get this for £35 including postage, which is a saving of about £60. So WOOOOOOOOOOO!

Anyway, the game came highly recommended, so prepare for me to shit all over your dreams! Continue reading

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan. Konami (1991) Gameboy

Right off the bat, this isn’t the worst Ninja Turtles game you’ll play. But it certainly isn’t a good one. Continue reading

Silent Hill HD Collection: Silent Hill 3 HD. Konami (2012) Xbox360

As a special bonus to Konami month, here is the Silent Hill 3 HD remake.

Nothing makes certain sections of the internet more salty than the subject of the Silent Hill HD collection. People have made 2 hour long documentaries detailing every single flaw, every line of dialogue, and every speech inflection that has been changed and how it makes these versions terrible.

It is beyond picky, and since there is a full on review of Silent Hill 3, I’ll focus on the HD remake and whether it is fine or not. Continue reading

Silent Hill 3. Konami (2003) PlayStation 2

What better way to wrap up Konami month than with Silent Hill 3, on anniversary of reviewing Silent Hill 1!

Silent Hill 2 is my favourite game, I honestly think it to be one of the few examples of a perfect videogame, so coming into Silent Hill 3 for the first time it has some pretty big shoes to fill. Continue reading

Batman Returns. Konami (1993) Super Nintendo

The site has become a bit Capcom heavy, so I am going to try upping the Konami output for the month with Konami Month.

I had been working on the assumption that all Batman games were a bag of wank until the Arkham series, but after having the game suggested to me on Reddit and Twitter as a decent beat ’em up, I thought I’d don the cape, and pretend I know what is happening in Gotham. Continue reading

Crypt Killer. Konami (1997) PlayStation

The site has become a bit Capcom heavy, so I am going to try upping the Konami output for the month with Konami Month.

Circa 1996 I was in an arcade with some mates, and we discovered a light gun game that allowed three players, and the guns were SHOTGUNS, complete with pump action reload. This blew my 11 year old mind. We spent an entire day in that arcade and between us we will have sank £20 plus into the machine (it was around 25p a go). We saved and scrimped over the next week, saving our £1 lunch money, and doing odd jobs to scrape as much money as we could.

Finally, the weekend rolls around and we head off early to get to the arcade. The machine was gone, and we were devastated.

As the years went by I forgot about the arcade game, and couldn’t remember anything other than 3 players and shotguns.

Now in the distant present, I was simply going through a list of Light Gun Games that I didn’t own, and though “I pretty much own every other Light Gun Game, why not this one?”, and so, I accidentally stumbled on some nostalgia.
