REVIEWS Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemi Review
Atelier Ayesha Plus is a new entry in a classic-JRPG series with a pretty paintjob, but does the classic formula still hold up?

I wish I could claim some mastery over this topsy-turvy classic starring elf boy who saves princess. Predictable, right?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Ninja Turtles on NES...

I grew up as an '80s kid. I played with Transformers, He-Man action figures, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I watched their shows. I carried my food in their lunchboxes. For Halloween, I wore their costumes. So naturally, I played their video games.

Games based on franchises, even back then, sucked. And although there are some good games based on the Ninja Turtles, the first game on the NES, was fucking awful. Not only was it awful, but it was so hard. So difficult for a young, rage-filled child like me, that I remember biting my NES controller so hard that one of my loose teeth popped out. 

Thank god for that loose tooth, because I had to use the Tooth Fairy money I got to buy a new NES controller -- because I smashed the shit out of it, making it only one of two times I've broken a controller I was so angry. (The other time was because I kept losing to Sagat in Street Figher II Turbo Edition)

To anyone with a similar childhood memory of this game, this video is for you (and me).
