Essential Neo Geo Pocket Colour games
Xevious posted a topic in Retro & Arcade GamingPlease read this spoiler first! Sonic Pocket Adventure Many complain that there hasn't been a decent Sonic game released for years, and if a decent Sonic game requires no homing attacks, wisps, or sidekicks then this is true. However, before complaining about a lack of new game, why not make sure you've played all the old ones. Sonic Pocket Adventure, released in 1999, is a pure Sonic game, loosely based around the themes of Sonic 2 but with entirely new level designs and mostly new bosses. Unlike the Game Gear Sonics, it's been designed around the limitations of the small screen. After completing the game, the main menu lets you replay any stage in order to set a time, and there's also an advanced time trail where you must finish the stage with 50 rings. There's also a two-player mode (where Tails appears), but as that requires a link cable, two consoles and two copies of the game, I've never played it. Oh, and many years before Streetpass Puzzle, you could collect puzzle pieces throughout the game to make picture of Sonic and his friends. Amazing. http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/30669-sonic-pocket-adventure/
Card Fighters Clash 2 (English Translation)
Mitchell posted a topic in Retro & Arcade GamingI loved Card Fighers Clash on the NGPC. As well as a few of you do too. So imagine my exitement when the game popped back into my head today whilst bored at work, then I found a cheap Android Emulator on Google Play and snaffled the SNK version online. But what else is this I stumble upon? A blog about Cardfighters Clash 2, which was never released outside of Japan due to SNK crashing and burning, leaving some poor soul called Flavor to take it upon himself and a motley crew to translate the whole thing into English. Why did I never hear about this in 2008?! I had no kids then and a lot more time on my hands, FFS. Anyway, I just thought I'd post this link to his blog, which has an interesting interview with him around how he went about it all. And if anyone is interesed in searching for it, it's not rocket science. There's no direct links to anything funny Mods, if you're watching. http://cfc2english.blogspot.co.uk/
