omething crazy happened this week in gaming. Just a few minutes ago, I was able to beat Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons for the GameBoy Color. Interestingly enough, there's an upgrade to the regular Roc's Feather called the Roc's Cape, which allows the player to double-jump. Through my experiences with the game, it actually looked like Link was flying in the air like Superman some some unknown reason.
Attack of the Killer Insects
For the last week, I've been playing this old arcade shoot-em up called Insector X, which is actually part of the Taito Legends 2 collection for the PS2. In place of the usual airplanes and star fighters the genre is know for are creatures from the arthopod world--Bugs of all kinds, such as Spiders, beeds, moths and grasshoppers, for beginners. Even though I haven't beaten it yet, I have come close on two occasions to beating it. Don't let the deceptively-kiddy graphics fool you--The game is pure shoot-em up, and a Bullet Hell one to boot.
You mean I woke up from a 200-year slumber just for this?!
The other day, I went into this local video game store that specializes in video games of all generations, not just one or two under the GameStop/GameCrazy regimes, and saw a clerk playing what appeared to be the Xbox 360 version of Fallout 3. I'm amazed that he was mowing down all of the enemies in the area, but then again, his PC was originally set up to have an alignment of Super Evil, meaning the total collapse of society as we know it
