Kirby: Super Star Saga

If you check the Nintendo Online account right now, you’ll find that Kirby: Super Star Saga, happens to be this month’s mission. That works quite well for me, as it happens to be one of the retro titles I’ve played recently while I was waiting for sales (they have now happened and new games shouldContinue reading “Kirby: Super Star Saga”

Nine Parchments

It looks every inch like the mascot kart racerContinue reading “Chocobo GP”

Earthbound: Beginnings

The Earthbound series has gained something of a cult classic status among games. On the surface, Beginnings here is another of several Dragon Quest/Warrior clones that started around the late eighties. DQ is one of the longest standing turn based JRPGs, and is the series that is still known for excellence and selling big inContinue reading “Earthbound: Beginnings”
