Just a random thug that I imagine could be used in a Beat 'Em Up. I was playing some River City Ransom and Double Dragon last night. Level 3 of Double Dragon continues to plague me. Why? Why doesn't the game have any continues?

Wizard of Wor is the less popular cousin of Berzerk, but it's still a great game. This old box is pretty classic, and would have sold me in 1983. Still, I would have been better off playing Ultima. Playing games after playing Ultima is tough. You always end up thinking, "I should really be playing Ultima II: The Curse of the Entrantress right now. At the very least I should grind some gold in Exodus."
Accept the challenge, Warrior, and the let battle begin!
Also, what the hell, the game came with a 90-day warranty? That's quality customer service.

I got Karnov and Friday the 13th one day as a kid. It was from a cousin who didn't like either game anymore. I received both a few days after receiving Adventure Island II for Christmas. The three games were a pretty big part of my childhood, when I only owned 20 games or so. Karnov will always be remembered for its insane robotic fish people, t-rexes, and wacky settings. This is defiantly one of the defining games of the NES, and every collector/gamer needs a copy.
I gave Karnov a try tonight, while I was taking a break from WoW. I can still get to the Caterpillar woman boss on Stage 4, but I can't beat her! Never could as a kid either. This is one of those games than has haunted me since I was a kid.

I scored Vice City Stories today for my new PSP, so I thought I'd make a Vice City post in celebration. Flash FM isn't the best station, but damn it it's good enough to use as some background music while you play MAME or pretend to work.
On spring break this year I ran into a Crazy Taxi arcade cabinet. I've been addicted ever since. It's 14 years late to arrive at the party, but fuck it, I'm ready to make some CRAZY MONEY.
Good thing I've kept the Dreamcast running all the years.

As a World of Warcraft player, one tends to accumulate a collection of official WoW artwork. Here are some of my favorites. You might be able to guess that I main an Undead Warlock. Time to go pwn some n00bs. Enjoy!
I'm a huge fan of Afterburner II for the arcade. Not that I ever got to play it in an arcade, but I secretly imagine that one day I'll have the full machine in an arcade basement. Anyway, the music is awesome and it's time to start Song of the Week and VG Music posts back up!
I chose a weird version for the Song of the Week, it's a vocalize Meiko Japanese thing. Why this version? Too much Jack and Coke.
