I guess my trip out to Boston to visit Andrew (and see Dave and Andy) and the subsequent PAX East awesomeness has rekindled a fierce joy in playing retro (or retro-ish) games, what with the “last ever Retronauts” panel (and it’s subsequent Kickstarter), and the Wayforward-developed Ducktales HD remaster.

It probably helps too that 4chan has an extremely polite (by 4chan standards) new subforum — retro video games, and that’s where I found this gem:

It’s a 16-bit remake of the original Legend of Zelda, for BS Satellaview. You can read all about it here.

For comparison’s sake, check out the starting gameplay footage of the original game, in case you’ve forgotten how it looks:

Well, it’s by CDProjekt, who doesn’t really have a foothold in the MMO space. And yet something about this game feels so very very right. The Witcher (and sequel) were great games, and the tone is right.

I mean, it’s never going to recapture the days of playing Shadowrun with the old crew in a Tim Horton’s back corner, but the nostalgic pull is still there. Teaser trailers like this exist to, well, tease, so it’s all promissory and no real substance, but a man can hope, yes?

Well, it’s  been almost two days, so I figured it was time to (re) post this image, taken from the his first victory, since, you know, the achievement is relevant again.

Mostly this is honour of the shenanigans Starfleet Dental is getting up to these days. But really, I’d watch an anime about a drill-robot dentist and his comely assistant / receptionist as they travel aboard a massive Gurren-Lagann-esque battleship.
