I've seen a few of these on Youtube. Basically its some clever dick steaming his way through a game. On this occasion it's the wonderful Castle Of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse for the Master System/Game Gear. I've been a bit indulgent on the old video posting over the past couple of days, but it shows the game beautifully. If I were you, I'd turn the volume down on your PC and play your favourite banging tune loud on your stereo instead, whilst tripping out on the visuals!
I spent a good while playing this poorly this weekend. I was crap! The game is great! 'Nuff said! Enjoy!
This is what the game looks like! I've no idea how they got the tiny camera to film this off the DS screen, but it's a good little visual sample of the graphical beauty of this particular title. The first person view of the zombie being slashed is achieved by swiping the DS stylus across the bottom screen. It's a great game, but for a shitty and arrogant review of this hallowed title , check the 'funny' assessment below! Whilst i know some people might have a problem with the remake of an old title (in terms of stifling originality), these two blurts need to jump off their superiority podium and pucker up whilst I spread my glutus maximus! The DS version brings the Saturn/PS1 roots of the franchise to a new generation. It utilises the innovation of the DS and presents a classic game 'reborn'! The stylus controls your zombie slashing... Great! Blow onto the touch screen to give the 'kiss of life' to your injured S.T.A.R.S colleague GREAT!
So it samples the mid-nineties video from the original Saturn game?
GREAT! It was good then and it's good now! I bet that the mentality portrayed by our colonial cousins in this review, is the same mentality that said sampling in music was showing a lack of originality. Well I suggest that they are wrong people! The 'rebirth' of the title on DS is as exciting as hearing James Brown riffs in Public Enemy songs! Buy it, play it, love it!
Posting videos is a lazy way of fattening up the content of a blog, but sometimes the good folks at YouTube present us with a video treat that just screams to be posted. I love this video, and the fact that the game creators put this highly amusing feature into the game!
Both Gnome and I have been playing RE DS. neither of us has reviewed it fully, and I kind of think we should somehow do a dual/joint post where we debate it's merits. However, I've absolutely no idea how we would do that, so in the meantime enjoy Jill's reaction to having her lady lumps interfered with via the DS stylus! LOL! :)
The game plays beautifully and quickly becomes addictive! Although I didn't complete it, it provided the perfect game for late Saturday night, whilst I drank beer and watched Laurel and Hardy (another retro pleasure of mine), one eye on the game and one on the TV set!
Hey! You can grab this little treat for your Master System from eBay or for your Game Gear over at Play Asia. I thoroughly recommend this title for all you retro lovers out there! And if I ever take enough time to get through it, I'll let you know straight away!

Home brew games and music on the move with your DS!
With Games ‘n’ Music, you can put your Nintendo DS or DS Lite at the centre of your digital lifestyle. You can use it to launch home brew games written for the DS and readily available on the Internet, listen to your happening sounds with the device’s integrated MP3 player or even watch videos. And you don’t need to modify your console to use it…
Games ‘n’ Music comes with a 128MB Micro SD card for you to store your games and data, and if that’s not enough, just slip in a new card and expand its capacity to up to 2GB. It’s really easy to use too. Just fit the Micro SD card into the USB adapter (supplied), plug it into your computer and drag and drop your files onto the card. It’s that easy!
Games ‘n’ Music contains everything you need straight out of the box. It even comes bundled with a 25-game CD, offering some of the best games the DS home brew scene has to offer, as well as a video conversion program for your PC (Windows XP or later required) to convert your movies and video clips to a format you can play back with Games ‘n’ Music. It’s the ultimate in digital entertainment!
All of this frustration made me regret taking the Game Gear away, and I quickly sloped off to the wonderful DS. In fact the Game Gear only proved worth bringing when I used it as a tiny portable TV, so that my kids could watch a TV show that their younger cousin was forbidden from looking at on the main TV.
So I wasn't feeling too enamoured with the system until this evening when an extremely bountiful haul was sold to me by Mr. Kahn of the wonderful Rusholme Consoles.
For £23 I got all this... the wonderful Plasma Sword for the Dreamcast as well as Wild Metal, Deep Fighter and Championship Surfer for said console. I also got a third party Fission Dreamcast Fishing Rod and Fission Dreamcast Light Gun boxed up... As well as this Mr. Kahn threw in a plug in chargeable power pack for my Game Gear AND one of these...
A converter that allows me to play all of my Master System games on my Game Gear!!!
So now I can review my Master System games for Master System Mondays (if I ever get started on it) on my Game Gear!! Cosmic huh?

But I'll tell you about that another time...
This system is a cool little cartridge based handheld game designed by Jay Smith (of Vectrex fame), it's kind of a VERY low-quality Gameboy (with a 16 x 16 LCD screen). There are two variations of the machine with regards to the batteries: The first version allowed for two batteries (although I believe it would still work with one), than later it noticed that the machine would work well with one battery, so the place where the second battery would go was labelled 'spare battery storage,' and the electrical contacts where removed. Interesting trivia: the console itself is nothing more than controls, LCD panel and a controller chip for the LCD panel. Each cartridge contains the microprocessor, which happens to have a small amount of ROM space on it that MB loaded the game code onto.
