Hello again, sports fans. It's been over two years since the last installment, and boy, what a ride! Lots of things have happened since 2010, like the year 2013, for example. And what better way to ring in this amazing new year than to take another look at the rotting corpse of Superman vs. The Terminator? This time I'll be going over issue #2 in the continuing saga of the world's strongest boyscout as he takes on the baddest machines the 80s version of the future had to offer. To recap our story so far, a fat retarded John Connor and his paranoid-delusional mother Sarah have moved to Metropolis in order to escape the continued onslaught of the Terminators, despite them already assuring SKYNET was never created back in 1991. However, having forgotten everything he ever knew about the way evil omnipresent computers from the future work due to the onset of his type-2 diabetes, John sells his mother and himself out while trying to win a free toy. Then Superman shows up and kills a... [check it out]

You already know what EarthBound is if you have any interest at all in classic console RPGs, but you probably clicked this link because you have absolutely no idea what an EarthBound Dog Bat is. Well, I will explain. ¶ EarthBound Dog Bat is a unique ROM hack created using the Earthbound Reshuffler, a neat little program that randomizes item names, sprites, battle backgrounds and enemy movesets, and even assigns a random name to the ROM itself (in my case, EarthBound Dog Bat). It's actually quite a lot of fun to mess around with, and makes an already funny game into a truly bizarre experience. Not to mention a much more difficult one - enemies can and will get attacks that can deal debilitating status effects or do hundreds of points of damage from the very first steps of your journey. ¶ Check it out for yourself here: ¶ And now, without further ado, I attempt to survive in this bold new world of randomized madness: [check it out]

Trouble is afoot in Two River, a town divided between three races, and only we can stop it with our undeniable charisma and charm. ¶ Next time: Another recruitment drive. They stack up quickly in this game! [check it out]

A significantly upgraded version of Starflight, with a personally-driven narrative, a great soundtrack and intense real-time combat atop the already excellent exploration-driven gameplay. It starts off a bit slow, but it really ramps up in fun once you get to explore the huge universe the developers have set up for you. If that sounds like your bag, pick this one up right away. Just stay away from the third game - it's a complete insult to the great game that came before it. [check it out]

Yeah. Because of Fraps fuckery and my failure to back up my previous save game, I'm redoing the whole thing from scratch to get back to our previous point. But this does afford us a unique opportunity. ¶ Using a save to import data from Suikoden 1, which allows us some unique bonuses much later on. ¶ I also recruited Anita in Muse this time around. Just be nice to her and eventually you'll get a chance to ask her to join. ¶ Tuta is also recruitable slightly earlier in Muse (jus... [check it out]

It's high time we took out Bodhi and wrapped up that play house side quest, methinks. Also, the first batch of high-level abilities rolls in, and it is glorious. ¶ Oh, and I also did one more thing off camera: I went back and bought the Scarlet Ninja-to +3 from the bonus shop. Why would I buy a sword that's only usable by Monks? You shall see next time! [check it out]

It's been a long road, but here we are at last, the grand finale. The final showdown. Our date with destiny. A battle for the ages! And other cliched phrases. ¶ For our final bonus of this Let's Play, we have the alternate endings of the game - the choices of becoming a benevolent god or a bigger force to be feared than Bhaal ever was. ¶ Yeah, it's not really much to look at. Same video with slightly different voiceovers. But at least we get a pretty nice wrap-up for our story arc... [check it out]

We finally take on the last (and possibly the least) of the five, Bastian Balthazar Bux, and then we go on to confront and defeat our most hated foe in all the realms. That's right - Saemon Havarian! ¶ Oh, and the Big Metal Unit is completed at long last. Too bad it's so late in the game that we don't get to have more fun with it! ¶ And as our penultimate bonus, we see an alternative method for killing Saemon that also happens to work on most any other enemy in the game. Just keep... [check it out]

The last game in the ever-convoluted Wonder Boy series, which spun off into a sub-series called Monster World and also spawned the Adventure Island series from its initial entry. It's all very confusing, but one thing remains constant - they're fun platforming games, usually with a slight RPG twist. Monster World 4 continues the legacy started by Dragon's Curse and Wonder Boy in Monster World, providing some impressive visuals and refined mechanics to make it arguably the best in the entire se...

We're on a mission, and the third installment in two days' time is proof of that! We venture to the shortest Bhaalspawn lair yet, but by no means the easiest, to take on Abazigal the dragon. And collect more cool upgradable items, of course (including the grand daddy of them all, which you shall see next time!). [check it out]

My thirst for Baldur's Gate 2 is not yet sated this day as we go for a second session, this time venturing to the town of Amekethran (currently under a fascist regime of mercenaries and monks) and then set out to do battle with Rita Repulsa.. err, Sendai. ¶ Oh, and Viconia's story arc finally panned out after about 45 hours of gameplay. Hooray! [check it out]

I guess we should go sort out that whole rescuing Saradush and Yaga-Shura thing now that we've spent a good few days dicking around at Watcher's Keep. Let's do that. ¶ The video above has a 15-minute or so gap where Fraps bugged out and froze the vide on a single frame. There is one scene vital to the plot, though, which I re-recorded into a seperate video: ¶ Our bonus this time is a furthering of the Viconia romance, which continues into the expansion and can eventually lead her to...

Wherein we attempt to complete the last of the Watcher's Keep sidequest and collect all the cool prizes within. Split into two parts due to an upload failure (and an overall length of 4 hours and 12 minutes!). ¶ Part A ¶ Part B ¶ As a bonus this time, we take a look at the Weidu Underrepresented Items mod, which adds several pieces of equipment from Icewind Dale 2 to the game in an attempt to give some more viable options for weapon proficiencies. While not the best balanced mod... [check it out]
Ultima 8 may have been an unmitigated disaster, but at least something decent was salvaged from its source code - that being the isometric overhead shooters Crusader: No Remorse and its sequel, Crusader: No Regret. Featuring some impressive visuals and music, as well as several cruel and creative ways to dispatch your foes (electrified floors, force fields, exploding barrels, and so on) and even a bit of creative puzzle-solving, they're both fun games with some great atmosphere. If you can get... [check it out]

In this entry, we defeat Gromnir Il-Khan, escape from Saradush and immediately make our way to Watcher's Keep, where all manner of awesome prizes (and very annoying puzzles) await us. ¶ It also seems Cespenar is a bit buggy, and may not notice if you have all of the components of an item if you keep them in the Bag of Holding. So if you know you have all the pieces to something, just empty them out into your backpack first. [check it out]

Wherein the remaining Bhaalspawn decide to recreate the movie "Highlander", slaying one another left and right until only one remains. We get dragged into their schemes once again, but that's okay - the road to be the last Bhaalspawn standing is full of fun rewards. ¶ First we get acquainted with the Pocket Plane and our faithful servent Cespenar, and then we're off to Saradush, a city under siege by fire giants. I just start off with a few side-quests because long week, tired, stressed o... [check it out]

It's time to settle the score with Irenicus once and for all.

Skullgirls is an amazing game. One which features a unique visual style with fluid animation, some really inventive character designs, an excellent sense of humor, and gameplay mechanics easily on par with any big-name fighting game out there. Plus hell, they even introduce quite a few mechanics and tutorials to the game to help ease you into the genre if you don't fancy yourself a die-hard fighting game fan. If you're at all a fan of fighters or you're looking to jump on board, go buy Skullg... [check it out]
