Now that the holidays are but a tearful memory, I should mention I spent many hours of my holiday making videos for your ostensible entertainment. First: Venture–
—an interesting and mostly forgotten predecessor to The Legend of Zelda. I only know about it because I always wanted Venture for the ColecoVision we had when I was a kid, but it never worked out. So the game kind of stuck in my craw.
And also, another Retronauts Micro video:
Parasite Eve, which—upon being replayed by yours truly in 2015—came off even better than it did in 1998. This sort of ambitious genre hybrid has become far more common today than it was back then.
Anyway, that’s some stuff you can watch next time you’re incredibly bored.
