Tetris Review

I agree about Tetris being a good way to think through things or calm down from stress. I discovered that purely by accident many years ago when I was stressed about something before playing the game. But as kept playing, I found myself thinking of solutions to my problem and working it out in my head. It was so relaxing and zen.

I love watching Video Game Historian videos! I think I may have seen the Tetris episode already, but I'm not entirely sure. I'll check it out and see. I really enjoy the way covers the history of a particular game or accessory.

When I started playing around with emulators for screenshots some years ago, I tried out Tengen Tetris on the NES. While I prefer the graphics of the official Nintendo version, I like the music in Tegen's verison better, especially the first track that plays if you use the default music settings. And I love the brief dancing interludes between levels.

Is Puyo Puyo Tetris any good?

Quick review because I'm bored: Pooyan

I think I may have seen it on the Atari 2600 (I know I played Kangaroo on that system). But I definitely emember playing it a lot on Konami Arcade Classic on the PlayStation 1. I love that game.

Cruising with My Girl - Outrun

Man, I loved Outrun on the Genesis. The soundtrack was awesome and it was fun driving down the road without being worried with winning first place. I have made it the end on quite a few occasions. Very good driving game.

You got Tetris Effect? Neat! You are in for a treat. That's a good example of another 5-star worthy Tetris game. It totally elevates the Teris experience. I always deeply enjoy that game when I play it. I'm sure you're gonna love it too!

You're hilarious Super Step! I'm glad that things are working our for you on the job front. It's always great to be able to do a job you love and get paid faily well to do it. Congrats man.

I too often felt the pinch of guilt that sometimes days turn into weeks...turn into months without me posting a retro review on the site. I mean...that was my unique corner on the here fine webspace. But sometimes, family obligations to my wife and son keep me away for devoting more time to my craft. But I try not to let it get me down. I just use whatever time I do have to write and post when the time is right.

What a Horrible Night for a Curse - Castlevania 2

Posted on 06/12/2019 at 11:22 PM | Filed Under Blogs

I beat Castlevania II back in 2012 when I was playing it so I could write a review of it. I actually found it to be easier than the first game. I jmust used a FAQ to get me past the obtuse parts.

16-bit classics I missed out on the first time

What a time imdeed! It’s getting to the point where I have to cancel certain preorders in favor of upcoming games I'd rather not have to hunt for later. I’m think about swapping Dragon Quest Builders 2 for DQ XI S. I canceled the Crash Team Racing remake in favor of the deluxe edition of the Final Fantasy VII Remake. There’s so much stuff I want to play!
