Hi there, how have you been?

Yay, digital downloads FTW! At least while I think about where and how to keep my physical games–which are a decent bunch, mind you. :) This week I finally re-launched one of my old-time favorite PC games from those GOG downloads and it’s still awesome all the same it was almost 20 years ago: Fallout! It’s dark humor, art direction, sprite design, tactical gameplay… Everything about it is cool beyond belief and it still holds up quite weel after all those years. Let’s see if now I can properly beat it. õ.õ

Fallout

I still remember the rats’ squeaks vividly…

Alongside Fallout, Steam got my attention too as I played a little more Revenge of the Titans and a good deal of Puzzle Quest. I clearly underestimated the latest addicting power though. :)

New stuff! Two Steam feebies raised my pile a bit this week: the remake of my beloved XCOM: Enemy Unknown and the promising You Have to Win the Game. Algo got my physical copy of Super Mario 3D Land (3DS), and maybe I’ll tackle it this week.

Done for now, gonna sneak some Puzzle Quest between one class and another for sure. :P

See ya, take care!

Hi there, how have you been?

Well, after the robbery in my house I lost my Wii and decided to take most valuable things away from here just in case those assholes decide to get back and steal the rest when I’m out working. That means I won’t have any physical videogame here for some time… and it’s good in a way since I can finally attack my digital backlog. :P

Last week I played a bunch of Revenge of the Titans, messed a little more with Dungeons of Dredmor and beat the great bullet-hell-ish Jamestown! (@Steam) I would easily recommend all of them, specially if you’re into tower defence, roguelike and vertical shooter genres–respectively. :)

Revenge of the Titans

Man, I love the style of this… :)

Other than that I paid a visit to BGS (Brasil Game Show) this weekend and I’ll be posting some pics in my Twitter account along the day, so stay tuned! :)

Done for now, let’s see what I’ll play next… :)

See ya, take care!

Hi there, how have you been?

Being training for breaking it, I only played Kirby’s Pinball Land (Game Boy). I know it’s full of cheat codes so proving a World Record or something would be tough, but I still love it and enjoy the time I spend on it–even if it’s too loose to be taken seriously. :)

Poppy

Poppy Brothers: my biggest source of points since I can kill one and leave just to kill him again. lol

Oh, I forgot… Also played (and completed) the short browser game SHIFT @ Kong. :)

New stuff! Got my Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS) this week! I should’ve played the original N64 one before they had my Wii stolen… ;( I love Super Mario RPG on the SNES and I think I’ll love the series that followed it. :)

Done for now, thinking of putting those Kirby’s tables together for another eye-candy post… :)

See ya, take care!

Hi there, how have you all been?

Well, last weekend I had to face a most unfortunate event: people broke into my house while I was working and I was robbed. Alongside a big washer (!) they took my Wii away. Getting home and seeing everything messed up is terrible but being a Brazilian you can expect that to happen at some point; what I really feel sad for is to lose dozens of gameplay hours of beloved games–some I was working towards completion–that can never be recovered. Not to mention WiiWare games, Virtual Console titles, a Game Cube memory card and a controller… At some point this will justify me getting a WiiU, but for now I’m not inclined to do anything like that AT ALL. :(

At least I managed to upload another ‘Retro Sprites FTW‘ post with my cherished Kirby’s Pinball Land (Game Boy) being featured! Check it out if you’re into it. ;)

Bummer

These days me and Kirby share the same expression. -.-

See ya, take care!

Just as much as I love Japanese games manuals I do love retro in-game sprites.   So I’ll leave this section open for sharing some of my favorite ones in good resolution, non-distorted, shiny-transparent eye-candy. *-*

Since I dusted this off and started training in it I was amused once again by its marvelous sprites. Here are some I wanted to share. :)

Enjoy it!

Hi there, how have you all been?

This was a terribly busy week and next one is going to be worst. lol So for now the only thing I can say is I’m still working in that Kirby’s Pinball Land (Game Boy) retro sprites post between one thing and another. It will be cool stuff, so stay tuned. ;)

Kirby Spit

Kirby and his various (round) stances. :)

Chick

… and a chick because yes. lol

Other than that played some decent amount of time  of Okami (Wii) and Shin Megami tensei IV (3DS) once again. :)

See ya, take care!

not for the prices, mind you. :P One couldn’t possiby ask for more… (or less) BUT my backlog will grow indefinitely as I work months to take a couple games down and a single click mires me in things to look forward playing. :)

New stuff! Last bundle brought me Gone Home, Gunpoint, LUFTHAUSERS, SteamWorld Dig and the one I really wanted for good: Papers, Please. Finally I’ll be able to dig that down and see what it’s really made of. :) Also, I couldn’t past NiGHTS Into Dreams… (a remaster of a fond teenage memory) for two bucks or so… :(

Oh, and this:

MUSCLE

The Japanese original for M.U.S.C.L.E.! Quite a game. lol

Eye-Candy! As mentioned last week I’ve been playing a lot of Kirby’s Pinball Land (Game Boy) to try it for my next pinball brake after Alien Crush (Wii Virtual Console, TG-16). I own the cart since it was released, already played the hell out of it back in the days but I’m amazed once again for its charming pixel art. I can’t find a single one of them ugly, and I think it deserves a retro sprites post. Gonna work on it. :)

KirbyMaxim

If every child craved for tomatoes… :P

Other than that played a whole bunch of Okami (Wii)… and Shin Megami tensei IV (3DS), of course. :)

Done for now. More YET to come!

See ya, take care!
