Nintendo VC Releases for 2014.11.19

Aha! Here we go. A big blast and a nice one at that. antarctic_adventure ANTARCTIC ADVENTURE (Famicom): ¥514 (¥1100 cart-only, ¥2300 complete on Suruga-ya) You know I'm going to mention the Let's Playing we did of this. As a quite older game I'm not entirely surprised its price is fairly high, although I'm not sure if it is worth it these days. Definitely fun to mess around with, though.

bomber_man_94 Bomber Man '94 (PC Engine): ¥671 (¥610 card-only, ¥990 complete on Suruga-ya) This was released in 1993, mind you. The "year plus one" thing always weirded me out, especially when I had a puzzle magazine I was subscribed to and found myself receiving the December issue in early September. '94 is considered the best Bomber Man, isn't it? Although it was for the intense amount of multi-play that was possible, and I'm just realizing that I have no idea how multi-player works on VC if even at all.

king_of_swing DK: King of Swing (GBA): ¥702 (¥240 cart-only on Suruga-ya) This game. This game. If you have not played this game, play this game. Donkey Kong must swing around and collect bananas. Sure. Doesn't sound crazy. Except the L/R button controls used to hold on feel so beautiful and perfect. Hold the button to have that hand hold on to a block. Thing. Whatever. Hold to hold. It's so simple and so much fun. Whenever it was dead at Toys 'R Us when this was in the GBA demo unit, you bet your sweet cheeks that I was playing it, an eye out for my boss not catching me doing such. My work was done anyway. Trust me.

nuts_and_milk Nuts and Milk (Famicom): ¥514 (¥260 cart-only on Suruga-ya) (Cough.) One day a high school student downloaded some ROMs and opened up one called Nuts & Milk. A pixel penis ran around trying to save some pixel breasts. It was weird. It was a ROM-Hack. I don't know who this high school student is, I don't even know what a ROM is. But I'm sure that this student would be pleased to know that the actual game is not that much different, only with a lot less genitalia.
