Having been abandoned by society, I was raised to adulthood by wild computers. Most of the stupid things I did were during the internet&#039;s early days, back when Overclocked was an emulation comic instead of a remix site, so there&#039;s no way you&#039;d find out about them now.<br /> <br /> (I hope.)

    Commander Keen Episode 4: The Secret of the Oracle - The first episode, Marooned on Mars, was the first game I ever played competently and eventually beat, but episode 4 was a lot more playable with a lot more neat secrets to uncover. I enjoyed it so much as a kid, replaying it over and over, that I had a minor grudge against Doom for ending the franchise.

    Sonic 3 & Knuckles - I played this game so much that I memorized it down to a science. One important lesson it taught me is that when a character has a very limited move set, the levels have to compensate by packing on unique interactive objects. While later Sonic titles would pretty much just take the special zones from Sonic 2 and make entire games out of them, Sonic 3 & Knuckles made sure you never ran out of interesting things to do. As a lover of marble chutes and kinetic sculpture, I ate it all up.

    Saturn Bomberman - The multiplayer madness in this game is perennially fresh in my mind. 10 players, 12 characters, 36 stages, and power-ups that let you launch bombs like missiles or summon a humongous black dinosaur to stomp all over everyone. I even beat Master Mode with the highest ranking and the normal single player game wasn't too shabby either. It was worth having a Sega Saturn just to run it as a dedicated Bomberman machine.

    Mega Man Legends - I... traded in all my Saturn hardware and software... just to play this game. It was the Playstation's killer app for me, and it would have been the 3DS's killer app for me too IF IT HAD EVER RELEASED. *ahem* It was a fascinating and even scary adventure, but my favorite part was probably the Teisel Bonne laugh. The Bonnes just made that game. Was it worth the price I paid? Well... no, simply because Saturn Bomberman is impossibly rare nowadays.

    Time to dust off all those skills you honed monitoring Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria.

    It feels kinda like they're attempting to promote another pokemon like Lucario and Zoroark. I'm not really feeling it though, and legendaries are already the least interesting thing about the games by now. They're so powerful that they're banned in the battle tower, in regional and online tournaments, and everywhere else that matters, so they're paradoxcially useless.

    @sketchlayerjosh I felt similar when I played Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon and the Kangaroo and the Penguin and the Yeti and the Monkey. What were all those extra playable characters doing there?, I thought. And they were all gated off separately; it wasn't like you could explore the whole level with all of them and feel smart for figuring out which character you need to use where.

    I suppose Spyro 3 is perhaps the precursor to the modern Triple A era, where developers think cramming as much stuff into a game as possible is what makes it good, rather than focusing on a core concept or two and performing various twists and surprises with it. Remember some of the absolutely insane supercharge jumps you had to do in Spyro 1? Did we ever see anything like that in the sequels?

    If you look at the announcement tweet from@SpyroTheDragon, the responses are mostly people asking when the Switch version will come out. I'm gonna look forward to playing it on Switch in a year or so after Smash Bros impacts like a meteor and everyone has had time to breathe again.

    UPDATE: I think Nintendo UK screwed up. 3 weeks ago by Unknown

    At long last, Sega finally realizes where the money is.

    I guess I'll get it for Switch; it'll be portable and have no Denuvo that way. But I'd really like to see it released on Good Old Games. Its mere presence there would be shorthand for Sega turning over a new leaf after decades of infighting and brain-dead business decisions.

    Oh my gosh, now I know what it feels like to die to Kirby's Mike ability.


    Then Twitter asked if I wanted to translate that from Indonesian. Apparently it thought I was speaking in tongues.

    I'm saying it's going to be a port of Smash 4, with all the Wii-U and 3DS content rolled into one package just like Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition. The reason I say that is because it's releasing before the year is out. The only way they could get it done that fast is if they were recycling most of the assets.

    Which I don't mind at all; it sounds like we'll get Mega Man again that way. I do miss my old mains, the Ice Climbers, though. I hope they return.

    Hoping and praying that the Inklings will get to fight the Ice Climbers. The only reason they were cut was because they didn't work on the 3DS version.

    As long as Link is sporting a new Breath of the Wild look, let's also get the blue bomber in there again with his new Mega Man 11 look. It'd make sense since the Switch has been running with the theme of updated re-releases of Wii-U titles.
