Gaming Log 4 – I am Loto’s descendant!

November 11, 2008

Dragon Warrior is pretty hard. Not very straightforward in the beginning as I try and wander around the huge overworld in a tiny screen with no holding-B-makes-you-run-faster option. So I was really lost in the beginning but I realized you have to talk to everyone.

I’m currently playing the GBC remake of the game… From what I’ve read, it stays more true to the original Japanese version. Instead of Erdrick in the first NES version, the guy is called Loto. It’s slightly easier to get gold/exp which is fine with me.

So what I’ve achieved so far… Not much. I have an Iron Axe and an Iron Shield as well as some armor that I haven’t upgraded yet. I’m currently level 8 and I barely made it to that Rimuldar place and I bought some keys so I can unlock stuff.

Anyway I’m off to play some WipEout HD because one of my sister’s friends got it and he’s willing to share games with me. I got Tekken and that 2 dollar game and flOw from him. It’s all good.

If I get enough readers will people want to donate to my goal of getting a PSP so I can have more means of playing all these old school games?



Introducing 3 new games!

November 11, 2008

Since I finished Megaman and Super Mario Bros, I’ll be moving on to 2 new games but I’ll also keep playing Dragon Warrior.

Right now my rotation is…

Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Jr. (They came together)
Sonic the Hedgehog (On Sega Master System)
Dragon Warrior I (On Gameboy Color)

I know that Donkey Kong isn’t an original NES title but I can’t really pass up the first game to feature Mario and Donkey Kong. I’ll usually keep it at 2 non-RPG games and 1 RPG game but since the Donkey Kong games are more like mini-games I guess they can count as 1.

I’m not too sure what to expect from Sonic… I’ve played Sonic Advance but I’ve never beaten it (harder on a keyboard) but yea… Sonic is another one of those huge gaming franchises and this is the game that started it all.

Happy gaming!

First batch of NES Games

November 9, 2008

I’ll be playing more games, but I’ll start with these 3 first. Super Mario Bros was the game that started it all… for the NES. Yea there were like some Mario games before it but this is like the first real Mario adventure type of thing.

I’m also going to start with playing Megaman. I’ve tried playing Megaman before but I found it extremely hard… 2 reasons… I was even younger than I was now and playing these games that are more action packed on a keyboard is pretty different from the way it was designed to be played.

3rd game is the first Dragon Warrior. First game in the Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest series… I’ll be playing the GBC remake of this game and I’ve actually started already. This was one of the first RPGs and it was made before Final Fantasy. From what I’ve played so far there are its similarities.

So here it is. I’ll be moving on to other games and I am very welcome to your recommendations. Obvious titles that I will play are the Legend of Zelda[s], The sequels to the games that I am playing, and maybe some Contra and Metal Gear. I understand there are a lot of underrated titles so yea I am open to suggestions. I’m also looking at trying out some Sega Mega Drive but when I try too many games at once I will never be able to complete any.
