I still wonder why I forced myself to play Battletoads to completion back on NES.

Which means I will never, ever play the Game Boy version, because it somehow looks even worse!
Gradius: The Interstellar Assault
Kishi continues along his lifelong mission to write about every single game Konami has ever published. I worry about him. Sure, it all seems well and good when it’s about great stuff like this, but one of these days he’s gonna get to Hellboy and Winx Club and Saw, and it ain’t gonna be pretty.

You might notice all the art I’m using for Final Fantasy Adventure is taken from its mediocre GBA remake, Sword of Mana. Hey! Guess what game is pretty much impossible to find art for? That’s right, the original Final Fantasy Adventure. So stop hassling me and go read this article, chump.
Final Fantasy Legend II
And finally, this week’s update wraps with a second Final Fantasy game that actually isn’t: this time the pinnacle of the Game Boy SaGa titles, Final Fantasy Legend II. (Some people prefer III, but whatevs!) Man, I’m gonna be so cheesed if the remake doesn’t make its way over here. (We should be OK, though. I asked Kawazu if he’d see to it.)
