Finally finished up Mega Man X3. I'm out of Mega Man X games now though :(

Still, I do have Mega Man Zero lined up!

Also completed Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 at the weekend. It was OK, but not a patch on SML2.

Has anyone mentioned Junction yet? Sliding puzzle game with an armadillo in it. I think it was my first Japanese import, and loved it even though I struggled to get very far in!

3D Streets of Rage 2. It's great and all, but the music isn't a patch on the original :(

It is, but the lack of a two player competitive mode, having played that exclusively on the superior Master System version, was a let down.

Been playing Street Fighter II Champion Edition today, completing it with Ryu. Let me tell thee this: the Vita is rubbish for dragon punches.

Had a brief blast on Commando too. Such a great game, but I prefer the Speccy version to the arcade for some reason.

It's barely a game in single player, in my opinion. It MUST be played two player, and ideally with a trackball!

OK, breaking it down:

1   Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle

Surely no arguments here that Miracle World is better, right?

2   Altered Beast

Always a terrible game, even in the arcade. Laughed at by all magazines on release for the MD.

3   Arnold Palmer Tournament Golf

PGA Tour, less than a year later, show how to properly do a golf game.

4   Forgotten Worlds

Decent, but suffers from not having the roll switch from the arcade. All the home versions were pretty broken as a result.

5   Ghouls'n Ghosts   

Excellent.

6   Golden Axe

Good, as a conversion, but Golden Axe was always a bit repetitive.

7   Last Battle

Terrible. Everyone knows this.

8   Mystic Defender

Wardner and Strider both came soon after, and both were far better.

9   Rambo III

It's no MERCS or Ikari Warriors. Or even Commando.

10   Revenge of Shinobi

Excellent.

11   Space Harrier II

Good, but like many MD conversions of Super Scalar arcade machines, pales next to the arcade.

12   Super Hang-On

See above

13   Super League Baseball

It wasn't even a good baseball game. You have very little control over your hits, and Sports Talk Baseball was better in every way, although that was 1992 I think. Hardball by Accolade was better too - not sure how early that was though, but was before they started being officially licenced!

14   Super Thunder Blade

Without the cabinet it was nothing. The MD version was awful, with terrible, game breaking collision detection, especially on the into-the-screen levels.

15   Thunder Force II   

Great, of course.

16   Truxton

It's no Thunder Force II :(

I went on holiday with a mate of mine when we were about 12-13. Stayed with his nan who had a house at the seaside. We'd walk the five miles to the nearest arcade just to play this :)

A lot of it is that much better, similar, games came along so after, I suppose. Actually, that baseball game wasn't great either.

My favourite version is the clone of it for the Acorn - Stunt Race 2000. Much more depth, multiplayer modes, better graphics, all sorts. Actually, it was more like Trackmania crossed with Hard Drivin', I suppose.

What an awful lineup. Altered Beast, Arnold Palmer, Last Battle, Mystic Defender, Rambo, Truxton, Super Thunderblade and World Cup Italia 90 are all utterly terrible. Zoom isn't great, Super Hang On isn't a good port, and Alex Kidd isn't as good as Miracle World on the Master System.

Picked up some new ones at the weekend so I've been playing on megadrive comix zone, pit fighter, fatal fury and super street fighter 2 new challengers, jap version. Why though is balrog m.bison, bison Is vega and vega is balrog!???

Because that's the correct way they're named. They changed them for the west (a boxer named "M Bison" was just a bit too close to M Tyson).

I've been playing Mega Man X2, which I've completed. Made a start on X3 too.
