Aliens: The Computer Game (ZX Spectrum)

Chilling out for a bit with the Colonial Marines aboard the U.S.S. Sulaco.

Danger Freak (Amiga)

I've been asked why in my first post, Square one, I showed three title screens and then never showed anything from in game. And the reason is because it never even occurred to me at the time to screenshot anything else from them. They looked pretty bad and I didn't play them long.

But apparently people are curious now, they want to see the games! So here's the first of them:

All this and more might possibly be happening in this game!

Do Re Mi Fantasy: Milon no DokiDoki Daibouken (SNES)

Yo yo yo, listen up. This is a story... of a kid... yeah just shut up and listen.

Long long ago in the cute land of magic...

Donald in Maui Mallard (SNES)

Also known as Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow in the US.

Oh crap, ANOTHER Donald Duck game? This time he's dressed up as Magnum PI it seems.

Dirt Racer (SNES)

Not the most beautiful of title screens. It looks just as bad in motion.

Dragon Age II (Demo) (PC)

I never really considered putting contemporary games on this blog, but I thought I'd make an exception this once for Dragon Age 2. Mostly because people keep telling me to do it.

Click the pics for a closer look.

Big Sky Trooper (SNES)

So called because you play a general and it takes place in space.

Ys III: Wanderers from Ys (Genesis/Mega Drive)

I've played a Ys game before I believe. If I remember right it was a jRPG viewed from above, where you walked into enemies to defeat them.

Virtual Bart (Genesis/Mega Drive)

Simpsons games usually range between crap and worse, so lets see how this one rates.

Children of Mana (DS) - Guest Post

Another guest post by Ocean.
The older Mana series are dear to my heart, and a huge inspiration for me. I saw the reviews for the newer Mana series, and they were pretty disappointing. I have tried out Sword of Mana, and I was not a fan of that one. Final Fantasy Adventure (which Sword of Mana is a remake of) is one of the games I've replayed most. I felt they dragged out the story and added silly stuff that didn't add to the game.

But how does Children of Mana fare?

Earnest Evans (Genesis/Mega Drive)

That has to be the shiniest logo yet. For some reason I have trouble taking the name 'Earnest' seriously for an action hero.

Syd of Valis (Genesis/Mega Drive)

It's called Valis SD in Japan, as in 'super deformed', but apparently it was mistranslated. Either that or they really liked the name 'Syd' as they changed the character's name to it too.
