Ninja Commando Masters of Combat

A few more games this time around for the collection. Not all were necessary, but it’s how these things go sometimes.

The first game is very much in that “not necessary” category. I already have Legend of Kay on the PS2. It was one of those games I didn’t know about, but ebbderelict had fun with it as he’d mentioned in his review of the game he did six years ago. As usual I’ve yet to play that one and bought the PS4 rerelease Legend of Kay Anniversary anyway.

In Neo-Geo news, I picked up Garou: Mark of the Wolves and ADK Damashii on PSN when they were on sale for around 50% off. These both are PS2 imports for play on PS4. ADK Damashii is a compilation of five games: Aggressors of Dark Kombat, Ninja Combat, Ninja Commando, Ninja Masters, and Twinkle Star Sprites.

I also bought a recent disc release of Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours by Limited Run Games. This is the first time I’ve shopped with them and I also plan to do so for the rerelease of the Sega CD game Night Trap that they’ve announced is coming soon.

Finally, I picked up the Harrison Ford movie, The Fugitive and the great 1980s series Cosmos by Carl Sagan. This latter is a DVD set since there hasn’t been a Blu-ray version made as of yet. I also have another DVD on the way of Best of the Best 2. Wayne Newton is fantastically cheesy in this film and I loved it.

Two Left On PS2 Wish List

Over the past month I’ve been looking through my wish list and getting it down to the core games I still want. This meant I decided on not getting the final two games I had listed for a long time for the Game Boy (Ninja Gaiden Shadow and Kid Dracula) among others. I’m close to being finished with several systems like PS1 (10), PS2 (2), GBA/SNES (6), NES (4), and GEN (7).

Now I give you my latest acquisitions.

IKARI III: THE RESCUE
This was quite an off-shoot for the third game in the Ikari Warriors series. This was a beat-’em-up more akin to another of SNK’s efforts, P.O.W., than a shoot-’em-up as the previous two games were.

STREET FIGHTER ALPHA 2
Everybody knows of the Street Fighter Alpha series. I personally like this one the best as Alpha 1 felt like an unfinished or rushed game and Alpha 3, while probably the overall best in the series, had a bit too much going on in it.

POWER RANGERS: TIME FORCE
From the little bit of time I tested it, this Power Rangers game hits the right notes as far as the license goes, but fails to play well with d-pad controls in 3D space and a bad top-down viewing angle.

FATAL FURY: WILD AMBITION
Here’s the attempt for Fatal Fury to get a 3D graphics update. It looks average at best, but at least plays pretty well.

X-MEN: MUTANT ACADEMY 1 & 2
I was under the impression that X-Men: Mutant Academy 2 was a good fighting game and better than the prequel which was a different type of game. As it turns out they’re both fighting games and so similar to each other I couldn’t tell which was good at all when testing them.

THE INCREDIBLE HULK: THE PANTHEON SAGA
This clearly isn’t a good game. I was going after X-Men: Mutant Academy 2 and this happened to also be apart of the same auction. I guess they can’t all be winners.

CRASH: MIND OVER MUTANT
I have quite the memories of the PS1 era Crash games as I’m sure most do. This is the only one outside of those titles I wished to get.

LEGEND OF KAY
I hadn’t heard of Legend of Kay before ebbderelict started playing it. From his video footage it looked pretty fun so bought it I did.
