[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 26/11/17


Hello guys,

To all of the friends who follow me from the other side of the ocean I hope you’ve spent a good Thanksgiving and to all my non-american friends, well…I hope you’ve spent a great week as well!

In the last days I felt a bit sick and unfortunately my plans had to change a bit. I was supposed to go to a second hand market not far away from where I like but health problems and horrible weather are not a good combo if you have to drive and saty out many hours…

So I’m still waiting to find a good market where I can find hidden treasures and I console myself with the old trusted (not always actually) eBay. I’ve founsd some italian sellers from which I could buy some REAL hidden treasures. I’ve already targeted some lesser known or quite rare Master System games I could take so I’ll let you know in the future about them.

I’m still reading a lot and even though I’ve recived (this time IN TIME) the last issue of Retro Gamer, first of all I want to finish one time for all The Ultimate History of Video Games. The pages left become fewer and fewer everyday and I don’t want to “park” this book again on my nightstand for other two or three months. I’ve just finished the chapter dedicated to the 16-bits war between SNES and Mega Drive and I’m about to enter the chapter about the Playstation. Something I already consider “modern” 🙂

Last sunday I started playing Burai Fighter. There’s no particular reason why I choose this game, I’ve just picked one in my collection and put it in my NES. Even though the game is a straightforward scrolling shooter and id doesn’t have something new in comparison to other games of the genre, I’ve developed an insane attraction to it and I’ve spent most of my free time playing it. That’s the reason I’m already at the end of the game; of course it helped the fact that I’m playing on the easiest difficulty level and that I use the password the game gives you every stage to avoid to restart everytime the adventure from the beginning, but it’s unusual for me to (almost) complete a game so fast. I’ve already reached the final boss, the Burai dragon but I still have to find a way to defeat him. I hope it won’t take me so long…

    Good luck with finishing your book! I can’t remember the last time I sat down and read a novel or something that wasn’t a reference guide. A co-worker has actually lent me a Star Wars novel to read over Christmas, and I’m pretty excited about that.

    Best of luck with that dragon! I’m sure you’ll kick him to the curb pretty soon!

      Thanks! I’ve actually managed to defeat that f**king dragon this afternoon! 😀😀😀 now I have to try the Ace difficulty. THAT will be hard…have you ever read other SW novels before?

        Woohoooo! Congratulations 😀 I haven’t actually read any Star Wars novels at all. I don’t read nearly enough if at all these days, so I’m hoping to change that. Have you? Any you recommend?

        I’ve never read them either…I’m not a great reader and I’m not a great fan of Star Wars. I prefer more “scientific” books about history, physics and linguistic (I think the right word is nonfiction). I’m a strange guy…😀
