Multiplatform releases were somewhat of a rarity back in the 16-bit days. Game consoles were just too different from each-other, so it wasn't an easy thing to do. Which brings me to another game from my childhood -- Pitfall the Mayan Adventure, which was on fucking everything. Sure you had the occasional game that came out on the Genesis and Super Nintendo ala Bubsy, but this game was on almost any machine you can name back on the day: SNES, Genesis, Sega CD, 32X, Atari Jaguar, PC, and even got a port later on for the Gameboy Advance. For the sake of this review I'll be focusing on the Genesis/Sega CD version (they're very similar minus a few differences, more on that later).

Lufia 2 was one of the last and greatest RPGs released for the Super Nintendo.

Axelay is a perfect game.
Now now, put down dem pitchforks. I could never say that a game is TRULY perfect. There's always a flaw and there's always improvements to be made. Nothing in life has ever been or ever will be perfect. But to use a loose definition of the word, and to keep in mind the time it was made, Axelay is indeed perfect.

Love and attention. A team that legitimately cares about the work as an end result. Driven by passion and a vision to make something extraordinairy.

The internet has said enough about this game.
I don't have particular attachment to when or how I played this; it was one of the first ones I played when I had discovered emulator's, and it stuck with me.

I really need to work on this daily thing. So, triple dose for the missed days!

It's a game I've played to death and I love it still. That feel of near-mastery over something, where you're better than a large percentage at it.
There's not many things I can claim to know that feeling, and Contra III is one of those oh-so-few things that I can enjoy in that sense.

I missed a day, so, DOUBLE FEATURE
Should this count? It was never released and all that jazz.
You know what? Sure it does. It's playable now.

I haven't ever even seen an episode of Gundam.
But that's the kind of show where you almost don't have to have seen it to know what it's about; its reputation and effect on the world kinda state its case for itself as to why it's practically its own genre at this point.

I honestly couldn't decide between these two.
On one hand, you have a decent so-bad-it's-hilairious voice synth arcade port,and on the other hand you have what the first Battletoads on NES should have been. (Yes, I know of the original NES version of Battletoads and Double Dragon)
