Chrono Trigger DS

I leave you my last words before I am killed by hordes of Chrono Trigger fanboys.

HELP ME!

They’re after me; the Chrono Trigger fanboys. They’re going to kill me, tear me limb from limb, break every bone in my body, and tar and feather me. B-before I die, I would like to deliver you this review. I know t-this is suppose to be a review, b-but you’re not suppose to point out any f-flaws in Chrono Trigger other than sing its praise. But I… *glup* have criticism of… *looks around* Chrono Trigger, and I will do whatever it takes to deliver you this message.

Man, what can I say about Castlevania: Order of Ecclasia? It was one of the toughest demons I’ve ever exorcised from a DS. Well, partly because I’m not an exorcists. I was just a homeless hippy sleeping in the bathroom of a church. Since no one else dared to tackle this beast, they came to me. They also promised me lots of food, women, and cloths if I got the job done. This is one job I’ll never forget. I remember it just like it was yesterday. Actually, it was yesterday.

As I came into contact with the possessed DS, I was horrified to see moving pictures and sound coming out of it. I wasted no time and took out a hammer and started smashing this possessed device; then I processed to drown it in holy water (I dunked it into the toilet). Finally, I noticed this little crucifix on the left side of the DS. I touched it and shouted: “The power of Christ compels you! The power of Christ compels you!” Right away, an ugly girlie monkey started to move! This is what happens when you have a really crappy instruction manual. I could’ve avoided all that had I known about touching the little crucifix on the DS. The voice in my head said I must team up with this monkey to perform the exorcism ritual to rid the DS of Dracula. So I named her Shanoa. I don’t know, it just sounds very fitting name for a hairy ugly monkey.

Kirby Super Star Ultra Review


Kirby’s back, and he’s angry! Who wouldn’t be after getting crapped on by Crapcom’s Amazing Mirror and Squeak Squad. Join Kirby in his angriest adventure yet in Kirby’s Super Star Ultra — a remake of Kirby Super Star on the SNES. This isn’t a brand new game, but it does offer many surprises for veteran players. The chance of the original appearing on virtual console is slim, but if I’m wrong, this review will provide sufficient information for both versions.

Space Invaders Extreme just came out of nowhere for me. I guess I forgot it was the 30th anniversary for this game — a game so popular that it caused a national coin shortage in Japan! What is it about flying pooping alien crabs that just draws you back for more? Today, I proudly bring you a review of this classic remake or sequel or whatever. Seriously, what’s wrong with calling this Space Invaders 2? It has enough to stand out of the shadow of the original classic.

After a bit of a break, I’m back with more reviews. I took care of a couple of articles, and got some ideas for new ones already. Hopefully, they will be just as enjoyable as the first one. Now then, onto Ys Book I&II review.

Ah, the Turbo Duo, the cherished memories of days gone by. It’s not because I actually owned one as a kid, mind you, it’s because of all the hype. Back then, the system uses CDs! In the mind of an elementary school kid, CDs equals awesome! CDs made games so much more awesome! I had no idea what the hell a CD was. Well, I know the game’s in a CD, but other than that, I really didn’t know what it meant to be stored in a CD. Dammit, everybody knows CDs are cool. I remember seeing the screen shots and seeing how awesome the games look. Well today, I’m going to jump the gun and review a virtual console game that’s not yet been released. Today I will review Book of Ys I&II. I’m doing this for a couple of reasons. 1) I want to jump the gun and have a review before other people. 2) I don’t have enough reviews for other consoles. This is something I intend to rectify. 3) This game holds a special place in my heart, and is also something a little different from all the other reviews on HandheldWii, thus far. 4) Because I felt like it.

Legend of Kage 2 Review

kagebox.jpg

The moon is recovering from what is best described as the most bizarre accident to occur in the last 100 billion years. A man had jumped so high, he rammed his head into the moon’s ass. Rescuers quickly arrived at the National Ninja Preserve to aid the hapless victims. After hours of painstaking hard work by a team of surgeons, they were finally able to remove a man from the moon’s rectum. Both recovered quickly, and was released from the hospital earlier today. I had a chance to talk with the man involved in this little accident for the full details. Due to my bountiful lack of Japanesian literacy, I had help from translator Sakamoto No Ripetomato.

VC Review: Spelunker

Spelunker is one of the hardest games I’ve ever reviewed — and I mean gameplay wise and score wise. The game has elements of a good game, and yet it’s plagued with design choices that’ll make you scream in frustration. While some games have aged gracefully, Spelunker feels more like could have been something special.
