Neutopia II is a sequel to the PC Engine Zelda clone. I have heard so much interesting stuff about it. BE BALL is the first game in a while I have never even heard of. It is not, as you might imagine, some basketball game, but rather a game where you play this big sprite girl and push and pull balls around a maze in order to get them to the right spots. It looks pretty damn neat.

Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge, or Blind Carbon Copy as the cool kids called it, is a spinoff of a spinoff and we all know how those are. Or at least we should safely assume. I don’t want to know.

Otogiriso is another sound novel™ by Chunsoft. What does it mean? St John’s wort. Congratulatious on your daily Japanese lesson.
