Random Game Wednesdays: Lunar Jetman (Rare Replay)

After being disappointed last week with the game the random number generator picked out for me, I thought I’d go back to an old favorite. Rare Replay has been used multiple times for Random game Wednesdays and it might be my all time favorite compilation of video games.¬† There’s more good on there than bad, but not everything is a winner. Surely I won’t have bad luck two weeks in a row, right? Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Eternal Champions (Sega Genesis Mini)

I excitedly bought my Sega Genesis Mini on the day it came out, planning to play its really good selection of games for hours on end. That didn’t happen, I mostly just played a bit of Mega Man: The Wily Wars and then got distracted with other stuff. But today I thought, hey, Random Game Wednesdays is a great excuse to play it again. There’s so many good games included, there’s no way I’d end up with a bad one, right? Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Final Fantasy IX (Nintendo Switch)

Sometimes the random number generator that decides what I write for this feature is cruel. Today, it selected Final Fantasy IX, a long Japanese role-playing game, and one that I’ve already beaten. So what do I do, play the beginning again? But for what purpose, I’m not getting a new first impression out of it. Do I just load up my save? What will that do, other than look at what the end of the last dungeon looks like? It’s also not fresh enough in my mind to write an actual formal review of it. So, here’s me just rambling about FFIX for like 700 words or so. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Kirby’s Dreamland 3 (SNES Nintendo Switch Online)

I really like Kirby, but for whatever reason, his Super Nintendo games are a bit of a blind spot for me. But, a couple of them are available on the Nintendo Switch’s SNES app and the random number generator decided I should check out Kirby’s Dreamland 3. Dreamland 2 was one of my favorite games on the original Game Boy, but is 3 a worthy successor? Well, it’s kind of hard to say after only playing through the first world, but here’s what I thought. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Super Mario Bros. 3 (Nintendo Switch Online)

It’s been a while since I did a new installment of Random Game Wednesdays, and I thought that for the grand return of the feature, I should go to a new source of games. So, I went with the NES library offered with Nintendo Switch Online. There’s already a decent amount of stuff in there, with favorites, more obscure games, and weird enhanced versions of games, most of which I haven’t touched. But of course, the random number generator decided to throw me a game I’ve played a million times before. Continue reading

Random Games Wednesdays: The Escapists (Xbox One)

The Escapists is a game that I’ve known existed for a long time, but had no idea what it actually was. It was just this game that was constantly on sale on Xbox, and at one point was free for Xbox Live Gold members. That’s when I picked it up and it’s been sitting on my hard drive ever since. Today, I barely scratched the surface, but I can now say that I know what this game is. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Fire Emblem Warriors

I do not like the Dynasty Warriors games and I’ve only just recently started to play the Fire Emblem series, so it was not very likely that I would pick up the Dynasty Warriors-style Fire Emblem game. However, a good Amazon sale can be hard to ignore, and one day I found myself with a copy of the special edition of Fire Emblem Warriors. I didn’t play it, mind you. It just kind of sat on my shelf, looking kind of cool with its extra large¬†box. This morning, the random number generator decided it was time to finally put it in my Switch and see how it is. Continue reading
