Played it last night for an hour or so and was pretty quickly transported to my 10 year old self. This was without a doubt my favourite game on the Master System and one of the select few games that I purchased after a video store rental left such a strong impression. It's the game I remember with a fresh coat of paint and that fresh coat of paint is amazing. So glad they did this.

I hope so but I have no idea what they'd play. I did love Vinny's idea of trying to beat the original SNES Street Fighter 2 on the hardest difficulty with all characters but agree that it probably isn't doable.

Mileage may vary, but my girlfriend got super into the recent King's Quest while I was playing it.

Legend of the Mystical Ninja - although it has been a while, I don't know where that sits on the hard/limited continues scale.

What made This is the Run such compelling viewing was that one hit limited lives tension. So yeah, while a lot of these games would be great, I figure most of them would be a bit of a breeze. Streets of Rage 2 for example, unless you're bumping the difficulty way up would be a single episode deal.

I generally do a book to two books a month depending on length. Last year I think I read about 20 books all up but always use the start of the year as a new starting point.

First book this year was:

True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Carey

Great little journey through 19th Century country Australia. Had the feel of a solid western and focused closely on what forces a man to a life of crime taking the view that in his eyes, he's right. I know Carey went heavily into fiction with this one, but the scent of the true story is there enough for it to feel genuine.

Just started reading as a tie in to Chinese New Year:

Monkey by Wu Ch'eng-en (Translation by Arthur Waley) (aka Journey to the West)

Have been wanting to read this for a while given it's continuing influence on Eastern culture. I literally started it this morning but it is fun. I understand that this is a very abridged and popular translation, but that's okay for what I'm trying to get out of this.

Waiting to see the launch lineup. If Zelda is a launch game, then yes, I will pre-order.

I usually throw away the left over milk due to it's fat content. On a weekend though, I'll give it to myself as a treat.

I don't mind him acting like a real animal, but the fact it took me about half an hour to get him to take me through that underwater tunnel seems...extreme. It's the only moment in the game where I had to watch a video online to ensure I was doing the right thing. I was, but he just outright refused to take me through that tunnel.

Loved Trico most other times through.
