80-1

Greetings to all in VG Land!¬†Where it’s still baseball season.

This is in no way a port of the arcade/NeoGeo title. This is more of a sequil to the original NES title as the 8-bit sistem can’t even conceive the 32-bit features.

This turnes out a little better than the first. As you can start with a more potent balanced team. Finding your fielders for a pop fly is still a major pain though. And the music in this cart is probabbly the best I’ve herd in any baseball themed game.

Hope you enjoyed the ride

Greetings to all in VG Land!

This NeoGeo/arade port just didn’t fare too well with me. Even though most ratings on the game are very good. Almost all NES baseball themed games have that problem with locating outfielders when the hit takes the ball beyond the bounds of of the infield. In this title it was a major pain. Another thing I did not like is that you are givin the choice to start out whith only one attribute for your team such as strong hitters, fast runners, great pitchers, etc. That leaves any other ball gaming skill quite weak. The balaned team I have chosen to start with hardly had anything to show. Sure the player can build his dream team but that takes money which is only aquired by winning a game. And the difficuly of playing is hard as the computer AI is quite intellegent. I would not recommend this for begginers.

Yes, my team I chosen were the weak balanced team. I played the underdog.

Hope You enjoyed the ride!

Play it Through – Faxanadu

Posted in Cornshaq with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2008 by cornshaq

Hey everyone time for another update from Cornshaq and this time its my complete run of Faxanadu for the NES. This is an all time great adventure game for the system made by Falcom. Falcom is also responsible for the Dragon Slayer series which this is a spin off of as well as the Ys series. Faxanadu is one of those games that you need to talk to everyone to find out what the heck you are suppose to do. There are also sometimes when you need to build money up in order to buy certain items. The game does have some control issues but that can be forgiven since it was a pretty early title coming out in 1987 in Japan. Enjoy

Posted in Cornshaq with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2008 by cornshaq

Hey everyone its time for another Cornshaq update and this time around I bring you Battle of Olympus and Faxanadu two of my all time favorites. Not just in gameplay but especially because of the soundtracks. Battle of Olympus was composed by Kazuo Sawa who also worked on Super Dodge Ball, Nintendo World Cup, and River City Ransom. Enjoy!


Next up is Faxanadu a game in the Dragon Slayer series by Falcom. This game is another example of great adventure gameplay on the NES. The soundtrack composed by the team at Falcom who are also responsible for other great games including the Ys series show how to create a great soundtrack that fits the mode of each area of the game. Enjoy!
