Another week, another two games crossed off the list! Here's Castlevania and the Ninja Turtles.

Before I get to the ratings, I urge you to read on below, to see the new segment of the blog!

And now to see what Super Play was saying in November/December 1992. Welcome to the...

We're looking at Issue #2 this week.

First up...

The beginnings of the Multi-Tap. Of course, from the Nintendo64 onwards, Nintendo would include 4 controller ports by default.

This was exciting news that came into amazing fruition. In hindsight, we now know that the processor chip that's mentioned is the Super FX chip, which would make games like Starfox, Stunt Race FX and Yoshi's Island possible! Nothing became of that second rumour, as far as I know.

 It's amazing really, that in this day and age games aren't much more expensive (and in many cases, are much cheaper) than they were back in the early 90s. Either we were getting really ripped off, or we're getting an amazing deal now. Probably a bit of both. And lastly...

This kind of thing always baffled me, since here in Australia, games were always available to rent from any video library you walked into. For the poor kids whose parents didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars upkeeping their expensive hobby, it was great to rent a game for the weekend for a few bucks and then take it back. If rentals weren't allowed I wouldn't have played many games at all back in the N.E.S. era...

Well, that's it for this week. I'll have some more Super Play anecdotes next week. Any comments (feedback is always great!) leave a message. Happy gaming! :-)
