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:

What if The Guardian Legend is a platformer?(sort of)

This is fun. Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link randomizer has an option to switch sprite to another. This is how Miria sprite looks like in it. Yes she is green. But NES limitations made that way that if she was red then everything around that uses the same color would be red.

And by the way have you noticed that the music in map walking view in Zelda 2 has some similarities with The Guardian Legend start tune(Approaching Naju)?

Zelda 2 – overworld theme

The Guardian Legend – Corridor 0(Approaching Naju)

Check out the moment when Miria raise up tri-force at 2:22:35. This is a funny happy face. Also she has a kiss with Hyrule there, or is it a hug?

P.S.

Also here is the new Astrolancer demo from Stuffman:

Böbl

Simple but interesting homebrew NES game – Böbl. Modern NES games sometimes show interesting features that could exist back then. We never seen them. In this one there are kinda “physical” water splashes when you dive in and out of the water.

Also the game is free if you want to try it out on emulator. Not all emulators run it. I used Nestopia to play it.

The cat sat on the back of its owner for 16 hours, while he was streaming a game for 17 hours.

I bet you don’t know Zhenya Bagatsky. He is a hardcore gamer from Russia. He plays games for his own fun. How I know about him? He is one of the admins in Russian retro gaming comminty that I often visit. I also heard he was a good arm wrestler.

So he posted another video play through. This time the “Namida no Soukoban Special” game on Famicom Disk System. I am not a fan of Sokoban, so I didn’t even read the annotation. But what I saw was something strange on his back. So curiously I clicked the video and figured that was a cat. And then I noticed the stream was pretty long. So I asked him about that.

And he said that the cat jumped on his back after a hour of the stream and then kept sitting for the rest of 16 hours of the stream.

Too bad he has bad lighting. That’s so adorable and amusing.

Video is split in 2 parts. Because youtube limit is 12 hours. But if you really need then here is the link to the sinlgle 17 hours video on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/886156648

The moment the cat jumps on the back is at 1:06:37

Canceled MSX2 version of The Guardian Legend

Thanks to Hardcore Gaming 101 picture, now we know that there was canceled MSX2 version of The Guardian Legend that was developed simultaneously with the NES version.

Original tweet is here: https://twitter.com/HG_101/status/1362078921513197579

A very few screenshots of the bosses of MSX2 version was posted in a magazine. Seems the MSX2 version was much darker and scary:

King of Fighters XV

A bit late I saw there is an official trailer for King of Fighters XV shown several days ago.

I played King of Fighters in 00’s on emulators. KOF 98, 2000 mostly. And a bit of 2002 UM. This new 15th episode reminds of 90’s style a lot. Which I think is good.

It’s a great fighting franchise. With fun gameplay and very stylish anime characters. My favorites are King and K’. I also love Rock from GAROU and I think they will have him in this one too.

Too bad I don’t have Playstation or modern PC to play it. I would like to try.
