What Are We Playing At The Moment?

I feel this should be over from oonm, lets discuss what retro goodness we are currently playing.

for me it is Ghostbusters on the Mega Drive, an absolutely delightful game that every Mega Drive collector should have.

Started playing Banjo Kazooie today. I've only just completed Mumbo Mountain but it's really fun so far (though it took me a minute to realise I was to supposed to slam on the huts ._.).

Been playing some Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins today to test it out after I replaced the battery. For some reason it only plays in 1 of my game boy advances, but also plays fine in my super game boy. Oh well, guess it's handy I have 2 lol. Game is still as fun as I remembered, though not as difficult.

Been playing Super Metroid whenever possible, absolutely fantastic. I'd never got into the Metroid (including all the Primes) series but this is supposedly the best of them all so I gave it a go and lo and behold it's a masterpiece.

Yesterday I was playing Mega Man X refreshing my memories of it so I could write in my 150 snes game thread... I also played a little Arrow flash on the megadrive..

I started playing Super Metroid ages ago for a blind walkthrough. I gave up on ages ago but finally decided to play o through where I left off and I'm really enjoying it. Great atmosphere, controls and I love the newly obtained plasma beam!
Ever since joining the original ONM I've been a huge Nintendo fan (specifically Zelda) and am looking forward to some great discussions. I was previously known as Lego Master

Mario Kart DS. Not terribly retro, but whatevs.

Oddly enough the main reason I got it was because my friend who wants to get into Mario Kart got it after I told him I was thinking of getting so I felt kinda obliged to. Not that I had to feel that obliged - it felt like a good excuse to get what I consider to be, as a game, the best of the series. The succeeding Mario Kart games carry most of its appealing aspects but they lack the mini-turbo mechanics that made the game really competitive and, almost bafflingly, any sort of mission mode. It was such a great distraction on the DS version. It's just a shame that it can't be played online anymore but apparently it was plagued by hackers anyway.

Also it means that I own all the Mario Karts now. Whoop.

Pokemon Gold. Set it up on my TV with the Super Game Boy for SNES. I never grow tired of this generation of Pokemon. Played this and Silver countless times over the years. Trying my best to take my time and level my entire party up, but man it's hard when a lot of the early Pokemon you can catch are kinda sucky :P. Spent around 6 hours on the game now and only just got the 3rd Gym Badge.

I've been blasting through Sonic 3 & Knuckles, as it's the 20th year for both games.

Kinda makes you feel old... or is that just me? :lol:

Currently have Godzilla: Monster of Monsters sat in my NES. Found a boxed copy at an expo in Sheffield during the summer. Is fun, if not a little repetitive.

That and I have an unhealthy obsession with the NES Godzilla Creepypasta, so I often find myself muttering in a demonic/satanic tone before I play. Just to try and summon Red and the horrors affiliated with. I should be fine though, I have a turbo controller.

Got 10 games in the post yesterday, 8 of which were for the Xbox. Set it up downstairs since my tiny portable TV is too small to play certain games after the PS1/N64/DC era lol.

Stuck in X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse. Played a bit of the first before, and played through Marvel: Ultimate Alliance so many times, so it was nice to just be able to get stuck into it and know what I was doing. Played 3 hours so far and really enjoying it. Having the X-Men team up with the Brotherhood is fun due to all their interactions which each other, and the fact you get to have the villains on your team :D. Using Juggernaut, Magneto, Wolverine, and then Cyclops (just because there was nobody else at the start of the game I particularly wanted to replace him with lol). Juggernaut is a fecking beast for just punching everything to death. Story is just starting to get interesting now too, and I totally didn't expect
the X-Mansion to get BLOWN UP!!

At the moment I am playing a lot more on the PS4 so not spending so much time with the retro stuff. Pretty much just the stuff I talk about in my 150 snes games thread and then a little bit of mega drive stuff here and there 10 minutes on streets of rage , half an hour on sonic etc

I'm switching back and forth between my various PS4 games.

The hardest part is actually finding the time to be able to play all of them.
