Gaming sessions – 24 January 2009

First Mega CD post 😀

I know people hate FMV games, but I love the anime LD conversions we saw in PAL territory during the Mega CD era, especially Time Gal. Possibly because I was 12 at the time and thought the girl was pretty hot or something. And I was just starting to get into anime and manga, or as best as you could around 1994/1995 😛 Going back and playing it now makes me thank QTEs in Shenmue, I got a lot further than I had previously 🙂

Next up is Castle of Illusion for the Sega Master System. For those not in the know, the SMS was pretty huge in PAL territories, and we got stacks of great conversions of other Mega Drive games. I didn’t get very far in this playthrough of it, but it was great to jump back in time and give it a whirl. Those Disney platformers were fantastic.

Must have been on an SMS trip that day – there’s the cheated-up Wonderboy III, the first couple of zones of Sonic The Hedgehog, then I swapped sides and fired up the NES for a bit. Played a bit of Super Mario Bros., then some Kung Fu (finished the first run of five floors!!), and then called it a night.
