Episode 37-and-a-half-a-go-go, baby!

Any memories of these games to share? Here's what I thought of this week's games...

It's absolutely gob-smacking to see how much the Game Boy Mega Man games go for on eBay these days. Have a look at this, as of a-few-minutes-ago...

Don't you wish you had a time machine, so you could go back to the past and tell yourself how much these rare games would eventually become?

On a somewhat unrelated note, I've been playing another retro-ish Game Boy game over the past couple of weeks, Wario Land 2. The game is fantastic! I can't believe I never played it back-in-the-day. I love that there's no deaths, no Game Overs, Wario is actually invincible. That doesn't make the game easy though, some of the later levels are quite tricky. I love it when games developers think outside the box. I've got Wario Land 3 sitting there on my shelf waiting to be played as well. I might play a few more games before diving into that one.

I'm determined to finish up with these "catch-up" episodes in the next few months. I've got an idea for an entirely new blog in 2014, so I want to make sure this one is well-and-truly put to bed. But there's still more games to play! See you next time! :-D


  1. do you have a youtube playlist where i can watch all the videos in chronological order (or the order they should have been in)? Its tough to navigate blogspot for historical episodes. If you do not have this, please do it. I'd love to sit down and have a 6pack and a retro marathon :)

  2. I sure do!
    I've been inserting the "catch-up" episodes in to where they fit as I've gone.
    I warn you though... it's something like TEN HOURS of video now! A thought that makes my mind explode... The Year of Retro Gaming is about as long as Lord of the Rings now!!
