Video pinball games. I’m currently playing the new metroidvania pinball from @team17ltd
called Yoku’s Island Express, for the Nintendo Switch. Digging it so far! What other cool and creative video pinball games are out there that I’m missing?
When there's a ball game in front of you but an Italian greyhound at your side.
Thursday! Jacksonville Jaguars v.s. New England Patriots.
January 21, 2018 AFC Championship (JAX-20 NE-24).
Our Top Offense vs The Top Defense. After a controversial week of Brady injuring his right thumb in practice the same week, a lot of people doubted he would play but not us. Had to come back to this exciting game and probably one of the most memorable Patriot games to ever watch! Being down 20 to 10 against the Jags in the 4th Quarter, Tom Brady and Danny Playoff Amendola came in very BIG! Making the final 2 touchdown drives into a comeback lead! After the Defense facing a lot of challenges in the game and finishing strong, Mr. Gilmore sealed the deal deflecting a pass on a 4th down do or die drive by the Jags! What a game.... #patriots #gopats
My entire Wii collection. It’d be nice if we eventually see remasters of some of these games for the Switch, like they’ve done for a bunch of Wii U titles.
Ys Book I & II for the TurboGrafx CD.
This is game 131 out of 138, in my mission to collect a full U.S. TurboGrafx set. Everything I have so far is complete in box (unless it never came in a box) Of the games I’m missing, the only boxed title left is the most rare - Magical Chase. That’s also the only HuCard I’m missing. The rest are CD titles that only came in a case. Collecting the boxed titles was the most fun though. Some - like this copy of Ys Book I & II - are really hard to find with the box, especially in good condition. From my experience, there’s a good handful of game boxes that are somewhat close to as rare as Magical Chase - but they just don’t have the same level of Internet buzz around their rarity yet. I’m usually not into graded copies of games, but I also have an opened case copy of Ys I & II that came with the TurboDuo console.
I played way too much of Double Dragon’s ‘Mode B’ on the NES back in the day. It was a broke-ass one-on-one fighting mode to make up for the main game not having a 2 player mode. But even though the main game didn’t have 2 players, I still loved and played the hell out of that too! Why I liked mode B so much as a kid though, I have no idea.
My 10 favorite TurboGrafx games, including imports, in no specific specific order:
The Legendary Axe
There’s WAY too many good games to narrow it down to 10, but those are the ones I’d pick...
Here’s a totally rad 1989 game guide for PC-Genjin, otherwise know as Bonk’s Adventure in the U.S. Whomever made this back in the day must have had a ton of fun hand-drawing all these maps. They’re so cool! Swipe to see a few sample pages.
Anyone know what happened to the Chinese live-action Contra movie and TV series that was announced last year? Here’s the arcade marquee along with the NES cart - the original copy I’ve owned since this game came out 30 years ago! One of the greatest 8-bit titles ever. I think there’s no other game I’ve replayed and beaten more than Contra.
Some folks think the only Strider sin Capcom committed was the Sega Genesis box art for the U.S. market. But there’s one other terrible thing Capcom may have spawned when creating their masterpiece: I’m pretty sure the level 1 boss inspired the atrocious Human Centipede horror film trilogy. Can you think of an older example of a group of humans connecting together to form a centipede-like monstrosity? I can’t!
The most excellent and superior Mega Drive case is on the left. Swipe to see the level 1 human centipede boss.... which is actually a totally awesome and epic boss! Also included is more comparison shots between the superior Mega Drive artwork and the Genesis version.

Ever notice the Romstar arcade marque for Ghosts ‘n Goblins has the game title misspelled? The ‘s’ is ‘Ghosts’ is missing. Pretty huge mistake to screw up the game title! Romstar licensed the game from Capcom for distribution in US arcades. I recently bought this marquee and a stack of others to frame and put up in my game room.
Mole Mania, running thru a Super Game Boy 2 on an Analogue Super Nt. The game was produced by none other than Shigeru Miyamoto.
This is only the second original Game Boy game I’ve ever owned. I didn’t get into Nintendo’s portables until the Game Boy Color back in the day. Then once the GBA came out, I started to really buy a ton of games. So now I’m starting to hunt down some of these classics.
This Super Game Boy 2 was only released in Japan, and it’s superior to the original in that it runs the games slightly better. There’s a minor flaw in the original Super Game Boy that runs the games 2.4% faster. Plus the translucent cart is super cool. I just purchased this one, and unfortunately no sound comes out of the game. It’s not an issue with the actual game cart though. From what I’ve read, this sometimes happens with 2 capacitors going bad within the Super Game Boy. I don’t have the skills to replace them, so I’ll have to pick up another. Fortunately, they’re not that expensive.
Karnov. One of my favorite NES games. Here’s the Famicom cartridge in front of the arcade marquee. I was always bummed it never got a sequel. There was a game titled Karnov’s Revenge - but that wasn’t a platform game so it doesn’t count! Plus it was really just a Fighter’s History sequel. Data East definitely loved the character though, as Karnov made a number of appearances in other games. My favorite being the boss in level 1 of Bad Dudes Vs. DragonNinja.
