Gaming Log 1 Revisited – Super Mario Bros.

November 10, 2008

So I got around to playing this yesterday and it was pretty fun and easy. After trying to beat the clock on 7-4 (wrong) I went on GameFAQs to check and you had to complete it in a certain sequence (I bet you had to cheat to when you played it back in the day). The Princess is never in the castle. Before and after 7-4 was a breeze except for that last stage that I finished with 5 seconds left. After I finished the game I played again and they just replaced the Goombas with those stupid black things that don’t die unless you hit it with a shell. But Mario is a pretty fun game and it’s pretty good since it came free with your NES and is pretty fun for a quick game. It’s not hard except for like the 2 maze stages that might catch some of you guys off guard because it’s not very straightforward.

But it was fun. I enjoyed it. Turns out the 2 player mode is basically the same thing except you take turns with Mario and Luigi. I think it’s the same so Luigi doesn’t have that stupid jump. I understand how people can see how Super Mario Bros. 3 is a better game (I played Super Mario Advance 2) with the Cape and Yoshi and more levels but considering how this game was made eons ago it was a pretty fun game. Megaman was a lot harder.


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.
