Urban Champion (NES)

Urban Champion (NES) - Full Cover

Prediction

There are a lot of great fighting game series out there nowadays like the Mortal Kombat series and the Street Fighter series. Then there is my favorite fighting series, Marvel vs. Capcom. There’s just something so satisfying about watching Spiderman punch Phoenix Wright in his face. Anything to stop hearing him yell OBJECTION! But no matter how different the fighting game, they always have one thing in common. They all have lots of combos and special attacks and the likes. Those have always been so hard for me to remember and pull off, so it’s nice to go back to simpler fighting games before all that. That’s why today we’re going to be looking at Urban Champion for the NES. read more

WWF Wrestlemania (NES)

WWF WrestleMania (NES) - Full Cover

Prediction

I haven’t actually watched wrestling in quite a while. In fact I remember when it was I stopped caring about it. It was right around the time Vince McMahon bought all the other wrestling companies and started fighting with the World Wildlife Foundation over the rights to the WWF website. Because everyone knows people care more about grown men fake fighting each other than saving endangered animals. Thankfully the World Wildlife Foundation didn’t back down and the WWF eventually became the WWE. read more

Home Alone (NES)

Home Alone NES Full Cover

Prediction

It’s Christmas time, and what better way to get into the spirits than with some classic Christmas movies, specifically Home Alone. I’m sure we all know the story by now. Poor little Kevin McCallister is accidentally left home alone for the holidays while the rest of the family went on vacation. On his own, he must defend his house from the would be burglars Marv and Harry, the Wet Bandits.

Home Alone NES - 01

Convert that action to the NES and you create the nightmares of my childhood a gem of a game. Kevin has already called the police, but it’ll be 20 minutes before they arrive. Use every tool you can find to defend yourself and stay alive until the police come to save the day. read more

Win, Lose or Draw

Win lose or draw (1)

Prediction

Win lose or draw (2)

I know this is based on an old TV game show, but I don’t recall having ever actually watched it. From the looks of it, it seems similar to a game of Pictionary. You’re probably given a simple item to draw, and the other person or computer has to guess what it is based on your drawing.

I’m not sure how this is going to work out. My drawing ability already isn’t all that great, so trying to draw with the D-pad is just a disaster waiting to happen. If the computer manages to interpret my scribbles, I would be more than impressed. Actually I’d be very impressed if a modern computer could do that. That’s a very abstract idea for a computer to try to understand. For an NES game to do that honestly seems impossible. read more

Golgo 13: Top Secret Episode

Golgo 13 (1)

Prediction

I don’t remember where I heard about this game, but when I saw it I had to pick it up. If I remember right, Golgo 13 is based on a manga by the same name. In Japan, he was an assassin, but was changed to a spy thanks to Nintendo’s censorship policies.

My guess is I’m going to be primarily running around and shooting a lot of people, typical NES action game.
