Well, maybe not a Christmas miracle per se. It’s nowhere near Christmas, for one, and the new content that has appeared on the site today is not actually a miracle but rather has been born of genuine hard work. Eh, as hard as playing a video game and writing about it is, I guess. That’s ultimately a function of the quality of the games in question, and apparently today’s subjects are not too bad. So not even hard work, then.
First, young BobServo takes us on a dazzling trip into the world of Radia Senki — aka Record of the Radia War — an obscure Famicom RPG which despite the title has nothing whatsoever to do with either Record of the Lodoss War or Radiata Story. Tricky language, that Japanese.
And wumpwoast returns with yet another article about an 8-bit Mega Man game. In this case, it’s Dr. Wily’s Revenge for Game Boy. Inexplicably, revenge is a dish best served cold, yet wumpwoast’s write-up is full of warmth. Apparently he didn’t get the memo.
Tomorrow: we press R1 to stare at Eva’s chest at inappropriate moments.
