6:41 in the second video should be goofy but it's really like the oddest thing ever (potential Ghana poster)
really no horror movie scared me as bad because they were polite enough not to throw FREAKY FACES at you without warning like Shadowgate/Uninvited did

the article's supposed to be about religion/lolGod but there's also a whole bit about the movie The Red Balloon and stuff and should be called "Why You're not a Total Dork for Emphathizing with a Videogame Character"
also in the comments section look up "Kloan Choyss"'s comments, he seems pretty hardcore

This is the first thing I found when searching "Amiga game". Does anyone know what this is? It looks like a pixel artist painstakingly rendered one of my middle school drawings. The lack of contrast between character and background is what gets me, though. It either never occurred to the artist that everything blurs into the background, or since they used so many colors to achieve that depth of shade, they ran out, so pants have to be grass green and everyone's skin is the color of dirt. The blood splashing out of that dude's armpit is really red, though. I'd like to see this animated if anyone knows the name of this.

PS - if you like half-naked men in capes (I do), check out Barbarian and especially Savage.
PLEASE check out Savage.
I have watched the entirety of that Savage video at least 10 times.

This is pretty awesome. Apparently this entire game is variations on Move Left, Move Right, and Swing Sword.
I've really got to check out some Amiga emulation. I think I'm missing out on a whole generation of pretty wild games here.

gah Hunter is like weird Mode 7 game
but yeah the pretentious art games are ok but even stuff like QWAK (6:31) is so odd like some cutesy COLLECT FRUITS SNES game and there really is like no room for improvement but they add all these rich odd color harmonics anyway

It Came From the Desert: this game looks so wild. Appears to be a hybrid dialogue-driven adventure/giant-ant-stomping action game. There are a lot of unique titles here I've never heard of, not to mention all of the classic InfoGames/LucasArts adventures I've yet to play.

also apparently this is some laserdisk game like idk space ace or something?? i have no idea since the video consists entirely of ridiculous vhs-quality shots of people dressed as skeletons running around a spooky house and frankensteins popping suddenly out of cupboards set to barely-audible sludgemusics. sudden closeup of heiroglyph, followed by glowering witch face. cardboard mummy waving arms to an ariel pink outtake and then a wizard throws a fireball at the camera. its really incoherent and amazing and feverish. women suddenly grinning to reveal dracula fangs except it happens over and over again. entire game just a mechanism for delivering vampgirl vhs clips and stomach sounds.

http://en.wikipedia....eling,_Illinois gah apparently Jaleco, Taito and ICOM (the company that made Shadowgate) were all situated in this random town in Illinois (mayor of Wheeling passed ordinances to attract GAME DEVELOPERS to their town Wheeling... a town where gaming happens)

http://blog.hardcore...e-need-you.html I saw this article and realized it never occurred to me to look for Yaroze games online
Final Fantasy VII (<--!!!)
Blitter Boy: Operation Monster Mall
Would be pretty boss to see these running on the real hardware. There are more out there that I don't have time to look through right now.

that Fatal Fantasy is cool, it's cool they did their own 3d prerendered backdrops even if it's only 3 of them. I'm trying to figure out if they tried really hard to look like FFVII or if it's just early 3D looks like that. It's cool how ambitious all these games are. Er not ALL but how with RPG Maker stuff there are bunch that are all RTP and RTP is at least not ugly enough that it discourages people from making their own graphics

* The box art
* The more Dragon Quest-than-Dragon Quest graphics (it is literally GUADIA QUEST as a real game)
* You're in Africa or something??? I don't get it man
* There is a town called BREAD inexplicably
* The box art
it reminded me just now of Faria which is some other NES game (I played it way back when I was a kid) and it should be great because it's basically Secret of Mana ahead of its time but everything is so drab and you go to different locations but I don't think it ever really changed very much (each town looks the same etc.) and just in general it reminds me how much I want to do this game full of EXTREMES of NES graphics (like Faria tries to do lush forests but they end up sickeningly green overgreen) oh yeah Faria also had this Justin Bailey-style code where you get infinite money etc. and I STILL couldn't beat it because I couldn't figure out what to do
