[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 24/12/17


Hello guys,

This has been an intense week gaming wise. After finishing Super Castlevania IV I dedicated some time to the Master System version of Street of Rage and I’m already at a good point. Not happy with my progress in this game I picked up again Super C, I finally beat the laser chandelier and I proceeded quickly until the end. Even though the last stager were a bit hard, especially the ones with those violet stupid pseudo-bags aliens-spitting, impossible to defeat without a spread gun, I managed to come face to face with the last boss. I thought that couold have been an epic challenge but it was a bit disappointing because I’ve defeated the boss at the first try without even taking damage. Anyway, I’ve beaten another game!

Then I thought: why am I playing Super C without having tried the original Contra? I don’t have contra but the european version, Probotector, which is exactly the same (and plays the same) but the protagonist is a robot. Who knows why… By the way I’m making progress even on this game and I’ve already surpassed the first half of the game.

The great news of the week is that I’ve found my old games compliation I played endlessly in the 90s and now I have a list of game to play again and to write about.

I’m still making projects for this blog for 2018.  I’ve already scheduled the debut of a new column about the comparison of games from different platform. At the moment the provisional name will be “Versus” and it won’t have a fixed recurrence, but everything can always change. Other than this I think I will start a modified version of the 30 days challenge. Since I don’t want to clog too much the blog and I want to dilute it throughout all the year I think I will go with the 52-weeks challenge. This revisited version of the challenge will feature the 30 classical questions + 22 other ones fished here and there from the internet, mainly about the different games genres. So this will become a fixed appointment every week, I still have to determine which day of the week, but it will be probably on Tuesday.

What else I can say, I wish you a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!
