I mean, how insanely dated?  I still enjoy a go at Contra every now and then.
It's not just the raw difficulty, FE1 is a caveman game without the most basic QoL features. You can't see the range of units. You don't have any preview window before each fight, you have to calculate the hit rate and damage yourself. There's a lot of wonky shit that later games improved on.

And also the story is fairly basic, and the supporting characters barely get the chance to speak. Later games fixed this by giving them their own interactions and more background story.

TL;DR: It's a game from a time when players were expected to draw their own maps and find out how the game's mechanics work by themselves.

So, Rambo basically plays like MvC3 Rocket Raccoon.

Watch as the Smash fanboys get angry because it won't be whatever crappy character "they" want.

I just watched the video, and the first thing I noticed were the exaggerated sparks/SFX. Then there was the various clashing sprites as others mentioned and the rather bland roster picks. I'd rather Sean keep doing his own thing and let the guy have fun with his version.

I’m also fairly certain that was my Mario in there, which immediately made me smell ‘compilation’, which isn’t a very good sign.

He's also using the Z2 Goku.

The previously announced Aleste Collection will include a new game, titled GG Aleste 3. This game will also receive a physical release for the Game Gear.

MK Mythologies have always been canon.

Anyway, "A Nightmare on Elm Street"...

Other way around, Nintendo released the Game & Watch before the NES, and some of the dna of those cheap lcd handhelds is definitely present in their modern works.



The mobile/topset duality is by far the smartest idea Nintendo has had in decades, it would be unfathomably stupid of Nintendo to ditch it when they come up with a successor to the Switch.

Oh right, Game & Watch happened first. My bad haha.

But yeah, agreed -- they've reached the ultimate balance and the Switch is gonna last for a long time until Nintendo somehow comes up with a brilliant way to top it.

Or a stupid way to ruin it, like they've done before.

Final Fantasy has lost so much of its identity over the years that the question would be what exactly makes a Final Fantasy game. Like, outside of a few common elements like the summons and the magic spells each game plays wildly different from each other, and the different types of settings don't help either. IMO I much prefer when they go with a high fantasy setting because it is what this series does best, when it skirts too much into sci-fi it just gets weird.

Aleste Collection coming for the PS4 and Switch.



Includes the Master System and Game Gear titles. Curiously missing Aleste 2, MUSHA and Super Aleste.

This is not exclusive to the gaming industry, and isn't really a problem of Capitalism but society as a whole. This has existed for centuries, and will continue to exist for centuries more.

A NEW TURRICAN GAME WAS ANNOUNCED, HELL YEAH!

https://twitter.com/RealStrictlyLTD/status/1298588645922951174

HELL YEAH!!!
And more details will be shown during Gamescon.



Turns out it will be a compilation, including all main titles in the series plus some special versions. M2 is working on the porting.

None too happy about this being split into two editions but still nice seeing this series back. Hope this can pave the way for more Amiga ports.

Uh... This look so amateurish... Such an amazing game deserves much better than this.

Always nice to see more SaGa, though I'd prefer if they ported the Wonderswan/DS remakes instead.
