Tough times for chronogamers, it seems. The original Chronogamer (at least, he's where I took the name from) has been silent for some time. I ♥ The PC Engine has been put on the back burner, due to work, apparently. Pre-Sonic Genesis seems to have similar issues with school. And retro-themed podcast Pixel Dreams, after having recovered from the "beer spilled on laptop" (perhaps a euphemism for a bongwater spill?) incident, have not released an episode in many months. Well, no one ever said devotion to retrogaming was easy. Fortunately, Juggle Chainsaws and GBA Weekly are still operating on schedule. Does anyone know of any other chronogaming folks out there on the web?
Well, after our epic last episode, Chrontendo will be returning to a more regular schedule since the damned History of Adventure Games thing is out of the way. I hope folks liked it. Occasionally it's nice to throw something other than Famicom games into the mix. Episode 33 shouldn't take as long as the last two episodes -- in the back of mind, I'm always thinking that I need to cover games faster than they were originally released. We have what I hope are 4 good games this time around, including a long-time Capcom favorite: Bionic Commando.
Naturally, we've also got plenty of ridiculous crap, including Mr. Gold - Kinsan in the Space. Whenever gaming sites come up with those lists of video games with the worst titles, this one always gets overlooked. I think it's the extraneous "the" that really put it over the top.
Yes, the game starts out with a musical introduction involving a pink haired lady singing a tender love ballad at the piano. And this for a sci-fi adventure game?
