Hi there, how have you been?

Well, there are weeks when nothing happens and there are weeks like this one. o.o Plenty of stuff went under the bridge for a regular 7-day stretch, so I gotta organize that. :)

play Ludum Dare! I got into last edition’s with a group of friends and I’m actually pretty happy with the result. [My part in it was sound design–music and SFX–mind you :)] You can play (and rate it) here. :)

play New soundtrack! Yay, my first official release! :D The original soundtrack for Starcheap is up @BandCamp. Read a bit more about it–and buy it if you like it, of course ;)–in the previous post.

play SEGA Burst! A lot of SEGA stuff came into my hands at once for pure chance. First, a Japanese CIB copy of Nobunaga’s Ambition (Mega Drive) has arrived from eBay; then I found a loose Fantasy Zone (Game Gear); then another guy handed me an extra GG fix: a CIB BR copy of Ayrton Senna’s Super Monaco GP II, a boxed BR Out Run and loose copies of the intriguing Ax Battler: A Legend of Golden Axe and Shinobi. All this in a week spam… o.o See below for pics-or-it-didn’t-happened. ;)

play More! Still got a couple interesting N64 titles, both loose copies: International Superstar Soccer 64 and a BR Star Wars — Episódio I — Racer. Phew…

New Stuff! Pics of the SEGA lot, from three different places. o.o

SEGA Burst


That’s it for now. Eager to play a lot of those… :)

See ya, take care!


Heads-up: my new original soundtrack album was officially released at BandCamp! :)

The project started a couple years ago within a hackathon and then evolved into a full release. The game is free and is available for Windows Phone–soon other platforms will follow.

That’s it, check the music out here and have an awesome weekend!

Starcheap OST

Hi there, how have you been?

Yes, it’s done! The most hardcore–and probably the most solid–Castlevania on DS was completed! That closes the issue for me since I had c’d Dawn of Sorrow before and have no interest in doing so with Portrait of Ruinread why here. :P


Eligor Medal took me patience and focus to get, but other than that it’s more a matter of being overpowered. :)

Now the (good) question is: what next? Advance Wars: Dual Strike would be a great Complete! option… The other one is starting Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands for real, but eerily it triggers the OCD in me like almost no other game before. o.o

Other than that I got back to Marvel Puzzle Quest (Android) full charge for another season–that is, if it doesn’t fail to register any points of mine again. -.- Got Beast this week and I’m close to opening another slot anytime soon. :)

Eye-Candy! Another funny scan is up, this time from Konami‘s golden era. It makes me even more sad to see their bad shape nowadays… ;( Check it out!


Beach wasn’t cool back in the days… :P


That’s it for now. It’s getting even harder to play with a baby cat in-house… :P

See ya, take care!

This came with some Konami SNES titles… Enjoy!

Hi there, how have you been?

This week I focused really hard on my Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (DS) Complete! project, and it showed. I managed to get to level 99, sweep every Bosh Rush Mode item (both courses), start a New Game+ in hard mode–which will hold the very last item for my full completion–, got the Albus’ glyph I missed in my first run and gained every medal for perfect runs against the bosses I fought so far. Phew! Now for the 3 final medals (probably the most difficult one will be next, Eligor) and thus, finally getting the job done. :)

Ecclesia Eligor

This is the 4-screen beast. You start in front of him, must find an opening to get UNDER the thing, then again, getting behind him, luring the tail to hide it to the back and hit it properly in the eye. Now imagine a no-damage run… o.o

Other than that I’ve been gettin a bunch of new Pokémon in Pokémon Rumble World (3DS Download) thanks to the brand new Lucky Balloon. Last one was Magmar, summing 348 so far. :)


That’s it for now. Now for the good part: after c’ing Ecclesia what will be next? Thinking about a Complete! run in Advance Wars: Dual Strike (DS)… :) Oh, and that checkpoint in Zuma was reached–thank god. ;)

See ya, take care!


This Friday I wanted to do something different. Let me share an amazing interview with the controversial (to say the least lol) Kamiya-san, producer of several top-notch series like Viewtiful Joe, Bayonetta, Devil May Cry; the upcoming Scalebound; and my dearly beloved Okami. :)

Enjoy it!

GameCentral talks to the creator of Bayonetta about his new Xbox One exclusive and the secret of Platinum Games’ success.

Hideki Kamiya, co-founder of Platinum Games, has a reputation for not suffering fools gladly, which was obviously a bit of a worry for me. But considering he’s responsible for some of my favourite games ever there was no way I could pass up the chance to meet him at Gamescom last week, even if the interview was only supposed to last five minutes. I must’ve got on okay though, as in the end it went on for over half an hour.

Even that’s not that much when a translator is involved, but before I got to speak to him I was treated to a behind closed doors look at his new game: Xbox One exclusive Scalebound. The demo was essentially exactly…

Hi there, how have you been?

Holy crap, it’s getting harder to be able to play something properly… O.O But OK, struggle we will. lol This week I made some decent progress in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Steam)–another level down, another achievement in–aside getting nearer my objectives in a couple DS games: Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia and Picross DS.

I’m going for completion in Ecclesia this time and already started the Boss Rush modes. There are a bunch of items than can only be obtained through that so I’ll tackle it before going for a New Game+ in hard mode–which will give me the last item in the list. As for Picross I usually play it at bed as a sleep therapy lol, and it’s working its magic now since harder levels are all behind me–“Furii” (“Free” in Japanese lol) mode is much more light-hearted than previous ones.

The good part of finishing a game–aside the pleasure of doing so, of course–is start thinking about the next ones I want to play. :) So I already messed a bit with Advance Wars: Dual Strike (which I would replay for a Complete!) and Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands is also being considered–despite liking Island of Happiness more, but still…

In other news I dropped Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS) altogether. I love the series, love the presentation and the polish in this particular release but the meat of the game–its pace and level design–is dumb and cheating. Sadly I have the impression that Intelligent Systems is losing their hands in this kind of stuff since I found Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (DS) nearly unplayable for the very same reasons. -.-

Eye-Candy! I’m yet to play this, but it’s the only modern Alice game that has personality in its artstyle–aside the Madness series, but that’s entirely another story. Alice in Wonderland (DS)! Check this tiny one out. ;)


Sharp and a bit disturbing. :)


That’s it for now. I can’t even get to the next checkpoint in Zuma… :( lol

See ya, take care!
