Puss ‘n Boots – Pero’s Great Adventure

2/21/2017
More
A mediocre 1990 NES platformer based off Toei’s mascot and Jules Verne’s *Around the World in Eighty Days*. In the words of Bubsy, “What could pawsibly go wrong?” A lot, as it turns out.

Gain Ground

2/13/2017
More
Isometric run and gun shooters are far from Scott’s forte, but he gives this classic Sega one a go and includes a sneak preview for a far off episode to pad this one out. Intro/Outro Music: “Chibi Ninjas” by Eric Skiff under CC BY-SA 3.0 The post Gain Ground appeared first on Gamepad in Hand.

Crash ‘n the Boys Street Challenge

2/7/2017
More
A Kunio-kun game, heavily localized into a story with likely very different meaning, but fortunately the story isn’t very important in this game. The real question is, how does this game hold up as a multiplayer game, and is it fun in single player?

Mystic Quest

2/2/2017
More
The first Final Fantasy released in Europe, and definitely an oddball among the early titles simply because it was composed by Nobuo Uematsu. Ryuji Sasai and Yasuhiro Kawakami did a good job on that side, but did the rest of the team do anywhere near as well?

999 – 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors

1/26/2017
More
Chunsoft’s notable DS visual novel was well received, but not universally. Scott is not objective enough to see meaningful faults in a game he enjoys so much though, so this is instead a 17 minute, essentially spoiler-free really crappy love letter. Fortunately, he does eventually find a few things he doesn’t like about one of […] The post 999 – 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors appeared first on Gamepad in Hand.

UN Squadron

1/19/2017
More
Probably the best side-scrolling shooter on the SNES, UN Squadron is also one of the best licensed games from its era. The games soundtrack can speak for itself, so Scott takes some time to talk about some of the oddities involving plane selection and describes the bosses in such a way that it kind of […] The post UN Squadron appeared first on Gamepad in Hand.

Beyond Oasis

1/17/2017
More
Beyond Oasis is an action-adventure game in the same vein as Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, so Scott obviously compares it to that, but more generally speaks about how the game holds up.

Crystalis

1/13/2017
More
Crystalis, an early action RPG in the same vein as Legend of Zelda, and a game that interestingly had a Game Boy Color remake. How well does it hold up to more modern gaming conventions? Scott talks about this as well as complaining a lot about the story and music changes of the remake, he […] The post Crystalis appeared first on Gamepad in Hand.

Rogue Legacy

1/10/2017
More
Answering the question as to whether a Genealogical Roguelite can be fun, while analyzing certain aspects of it and listening to some of its fantastic soundtrack. Scott talks about the fantastic intro and tutorial sections, before moving on to the story, castle generation, heir generation and finishing up by coming back to the story and […] The post Rogue Legacy appeared first on Gamepad in Hand.

Actraiser

1/8/2017
More
The mostly good and occasional bad segments of a rare breed of game that attempts to combine disjoint action and strategy or simulation elements in a largely successful manner. Scott covers a bit of how both sides work, as well as some specific levels and bosses on the action side, the intro and ending and […] The post Actraiser appeared first on Gamepad in Hand.

Princess Maker 2

1/5/2017
More
In this short episode, Scott briefly covers Princess Maker 2, discussing what he feels the game did well, especially in its influences as well as spending an inordinate amount of time complaining about what he disliked, especially what he found creepy.
