Seems like Suda51 saw Frozen, played Dark Souls, and then got the lyrics mixed up.

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

I reviewed Disney Afternoon Collection today.

The games are fun, but they don't strike me as "best of the best," and I wonder if they were seen that way back then, or were just considered fun games. None of them are replacing Mario's NES entries for me anytime soon, though I did enjoy the gameplay of the Chip and Dale games. The controls are tight and throwing boxes and other objects at enemies is fun. Darkwing Duck seems a lot like Mega Man, but not so much to make it a total copy.

Mario, Capcom Disney games.... which platformers from this era are still worth playing?

Aladdin was pretty good from what I remember. That may have been SNES though...

I was a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The game had so much energy and character, there was nothing like it on the market during its time.

Looking back I have no idea how I ever beat it. The pacing was lightning fast, and playing it on a small CRT TV you had only milliseconds to make corrections while flying through each level. But really, every game back then was difficult, so that was nothing new.

Yeah, not an NES era game, but it'll have to do. Smile

Oooh, Blaster Master! That was one I really enjoyed, despite never owning the damn game (just rented a bunch). That was definitely NES. Had the Playstation sequel(?) as well, though it lacked some of the former's simple elegance due to 3D.

Blaster Master was so much fun.

Euphoria was really good too.

Yes! So fun. Love the magic carpet level. I've heard the Genesis version is better somehow, but I've only tried the SNES version.
