Diablo 2 Resurrected

There are some old games that are still played today a lot. Some of them are still popular. Like Super Mario Bros, first Mortal Kombat series, Metroid 8-16bit, Megaman, Legend of Zelda, Heroes of Might and Magic III, Age of Empires 2, Starcraft 2, Final Fantasy 7, Baldur’s Gate II, Fallout 2, Doom 2 which is a meme now to be launched on all kinds of electronic devices, and so on.

And one of such games is Diablo 2. There are also various custom quests made by enthusiasts. So people who are not enough of original can look for custom quests.

Sometimes developers see the benefits and making a remaster of a game. Like it happened with Duck Tales from NES, for example.

Diablo 2 Resurrected is a remaster of the original game. Co-developed by Blizzard Entertainment and Vicarious Visions.

Here is the trailer shown ot E3 2021:

I’ll Be Back to the Future With a Terminator

Videogames underground can generate crazy concepts. This is a crossover of Back to The Future and The Terminator. Created on The Secret of Monkey Island engine I suppose?

The game has more than just 2 franchises put together. From the trailer you can see there is E.T. and alien spaceship from Flight of the Navigator.

The games like The Secret of Monkey Island are not for everyone. They are Quest genre. Today such games called Point and Click. And they can be very frustrating. Difference with Quest games of 90’s is that Quests have a character who actually walking around and interacting.

So the problem is that you don’t know where to go, what to do. And that can cause a lot of time waste just going back and forth, trying all kinds of combinations. Often times the solutions are totally ridiculous. And not possible to came up by a logic.

Here is the trailer of the game:

Alternatively you can just watch the full walkthrough.

Irena Genesis Metal Fury

People keep making games for the old retro consoles. This is Irena Genesis Metal Fury for Sega Genesis/Mega Drive. The work in progress.

The game had successful campaign on Kickstarter, so mostly like it’s going to be finished. Tho there were cases when games got the necessary donations but then stopped. I think Sega+SHMUPs fans might be interested in such a game.

The graphics looks a bit amateur for my eye. Gameplay seems kinda OK.

Authors say it is inspired by classic games of the 90’s such as Thunder Force III / IVAero BlasterSuper Shinobi II and Contra Hard Corps.

I also see similarities with Gradius series.

Below is gameplay video of stage 1.

Metal Slug Tactics – Reveal trailer

I hope everyone knows Metal Slug series. If you don’t know – it’s a great run ‘n gun platformer. I think one of the best in this kind of games.

Leikir Studio taking the visuals and place them into a different genre – a dynamic tactical RPG with roguelike elements. There are a lot of nice tactical games on SEGA, SNES, GBA. So this idea seems a nice blend of retro and more modern roguelikes type of games.

The trailer mostly shows a nice anime scenes. Not much of gameplay. But from what it does show we can see that the pixelart is good.

Axelay 3D fan art

Do you know Axelay? It’s a SNES game by Konami. Quite unusual. It has that fake 3D effect on the ground. Is there any other 16 bit SHMUP that has something like this?

Here is the walkthrough video to refresh your memory, or if you haven’t seen the game:

So I stumbled on the fan art by Tomi Väisänen. And, oh man, it’s just too good. It is how the actual remake of the game could look like today.

GG Aleste 3 by M2

A while ago M2 company bought rights for Aleste series. The original developer was Compile. As you may know Compile developed Zanac and The Guardian Legend.

M2 created the Aleste sequel – GG Aleste 3. And it’s not just a new game. It is made on Game Gear system. So it’s a real ROM which can work on Game Gear console. It is available on Game Gear Mini. And also it is in Aleste collection on Nintendo Switch.

They captured Compile’s vibe pretty good. The game looks really nice. And has good soundtrack.

This immediately put a thought in my head. What if they could develop The Guardian Legend sequel? If someone is reading this and find this a good idea, then try to contact them and suggest them this idea.

Let us know on the forum or in The Guardian Legend’s discord chat with other fans: https://discord.gg/93C68CT

Here is the video of GG Aleste 3 full gameplay:
