Retro Review: Super Adventure Island II

Posted on 11/26/2023 at 08:17 PM | Filed Under Blogs

I never played the sequel because it was never available to rent at my local video and game rental place, but the first one was and I rented that a few times.  I loved Yuzo Koshiro's music in the first one.

Episode 277: Be Like Detlef Schrempf

I usually stayed away from third party controllers because they felt more janky than the first party ones.  But there were a couple of exceptions.

Even though it was technically first party, I loved the NES Advantage joystick as a kid.  I later learned it was actually made by Hori.

I never got the Super NES Advantage, but one year for Christmas I did get something called the ASCII Pad.  It was a SNES controller with turbo switches for all the buttons, and even though it was lighter, it didn't feel flimsy or anything.  It was my go-to SNES controller from then on.

I really wish I would've gotten the Namco made PSOne controllers.  They had the NegCon and the JogCon.  I would have loved to tried those.  Namco's light guns on the PS1 and PS2 were great.

And to answer a question from a previous podcast, yes I did play Arcade Paradise:

I got my copy of Super Mario RPG this past weekend, too. Man the graphics on it look so clear and sharp and colorful!

Too bad you couldn't get the SNES version of ClayFighter.  The Genesis version pales in comparison.

You had several paragraphs in your post as well as pictures, so I don't consider that 'low effort.'  Doesn't make me want to go to Reddit anytime soon.

I had the opportunity to review Spirttea.  I passed up on it because I had too much on my plate at the time.  Kind of reminded me of that Spirited Away movie.

I've never played Vampire Survivor, but I reviewed a game that tried to imitate it recently called CatLord.  I bet it wasn't as good, though.

Revisiting 2021

New Pokemon Snap was my GOTY for 2021.  I loved how HAL made the first game, but Namco made the second one.  SPOILER ALERT: Prof. Oak isn't in the second game, but another character from the first game does return.

Another standout game for me was Ys 9: Monstrum Nox.  My mom was going through her breast cancer surgery when this came out, so it was a great way to escape when things got rough.  I was so happy when all that was over!

Psychonauts 2 was all right, but it was no where near as funny as the first game.  We live in a world now where everyone gets offended by everything, so I think the game suffered from that.  Actually humor in general has.  Everyone needs to lighten up.

Other notable games I played were Metroid Dread, Pac-Man 99, ActRaiser Renaissance, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, and WarioWare: Get it Together!

That was an 80 percent off sale so I figured I would jump on that.

I would think ALL the SNES DKC games would be on the subscription service, but yeah I'm not really sure.

OK so I won't get Tembo right now, but I might start up that Yono elephant game I downloaded for 4 bucks when I'm on my lunch hour today.

It would be cool if you found a copy of Steambot Chronicles at the store!  it's such a good game.

Today's Atari is definitely not the same company as the original.  It's in name only.

You meet Ellie the Elephant pretty early on in DKC3, so you should try to go back and find her.

So you've played the Tembo game?  Is it worth 15 bucks?

Yeah it's a shame Steambot Chronicles is so hard to find and on an old console as well.  Probably makes it hard for people to play again.

What's odd is the Bezerk update is published by Atari!  They don't respond to my emails anymore.
