Well its been awhile since I posted an update but have plenty more content to show off :P First up is a review of Street Gangs or River City Ransom in the US, quite a little gem to find:

Next is me working my way through Nintendo's clash with the education market. Is it a game or just a bad idea?

I've also posted a few updates to the magazine section, nearing a full set of Club Nintendo now and I have the most complete set available! As always I'll be posting a lot more as time goes on so please bookmark the site and keep an eye on it :)

Happy to say I have posted my first ever interview. Had a chat with Ste Pickford of Rare and Zippo Games fame, who spent sometime talking about his time in the games industry (with a hefty bit of NES related history of course!) and his upcoming game:

Wow, it just goes to show you can come up with all sorts! One day I'd love to create a full Nintendo graphic set on a wall, say Mario running through a level all in hama beads.

The only problem I found with

The only problem I found with Ghostbusters one for the NES was the daft staircase section at the end, impossible to climb without olympic trained fingers.

Sad I have a couple of those, Festers Quest and the simpsons one. Must agree with Fester... horrible game. There was a metric ton of bad platformers for that system. Nice list, B Billy was one that alwasy made me want to buy back then, but never did, sounds like Im glad I didnt.

Nice job, I enjoyed it. Ghostbusters 2 was a bad game regardless of system. I had the Amiga version. I know there are detractors of the first game, but to me, the first game was a classic.
