@dmcc0 Easily the best Simpsons game ever. I just wish Disney would come to their senses and give us a remake/remaster.

So the retrofest continues. I have been wanting to play a Mega Man game lately so tonight after I downloaded the Mario Kart 8 booster pack, I noticed that I had both Mega Man Legacy Collections on Switch so I fired up Mega Man 2. I ended up doing a playthorugh of it and beating it. The only level that gave me a problem was Quickman's level of course. Other then that it wasn't too hard. Still an enjoyable game as always.

I think Mega Man 2 is one of those games that's just fun, pure and simple. It's easily my favorite to come back to in the series when I just want to have an enjoyable afternoon.

@Guitar_bard Yeah there's just something about Mega Man 2 it's just fires on all cylinders. My personal favorite is 3 but I can see why 2 is held in such high regard.

Ok, it's time for me to beat the first Super Mario Bros.

I was almost over last year when I reached the 8th area, but I didn't have enough patience to finish it. My save is still there (I'm playing the SNES version in the Super Mario All-Stars collection), but I will probably start a new one just to train a bit before attempting again.

@andreverts Have fun!! It's still a fantastic game all of these years later.

@Guitar_bard totally agree, this genre aged very well. You won't think a game like that has 30 years!!

I'm working on my way to the 8th area refreshing my skills from scratch. I wonder how good you should get to be able to do it on NES without saving! I'd really prefer to play the original one (I like that style more than the SNES remake), but right now it's impossibile to me!

How's Crystalis going so far?

@andreverts On the NES, it was tough! Or, you went through the Warp zones and got to 8-1 as quickly as possible.

Crystalis is awesome, but I'm stuck! I can't figure out where to go after finding out the villagers of Leaf have disappeared! I just can't figure it out.

@Guitar_bard yeah that's probably the best strategy to beat the NES version, but I should figure out where are the portals! I'll try maybe later when I'll complete the SNES version passing through all the levels.

As for Crystalis, I don't remember that part because I did it too much time ago, but the solutions always came to me by speaking with all the npcs!

I'm currently playing through the games in the Capcom Fighting Collections (more on those in a few days hopefully) but I'm just popping in here to say that I don't think I've ever seen as much pure, arcade mode final boss BS than with G.O.D in Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness. Disgustingly large anti-air projectiles, a grab as comically long as Melee Marth's and, if that wasn't bad enough, the ability to CLONE THEMSELF...... WITHOUT METER.

**** 'em. Just absolutely **** 'em.
