While I like most of their material, Awake is still probably my favorite album by them. :beer:

There's two songs that come to mind, but the two band's names escape me at the moment:

1: Cult of Personality

2: Dontcha Want Me baby?

1. Living Colour: can't say I'm familiar with any of their other material.

2. The Human League: also Human was very popular.

Haven't posted here in a while, since I just mainly stick to tracking my stuff on backloggery these days, but there was one thing I wanted to note.

I recently played through Adventures of Mana on my Shield TV. For anyone who disliked the liberties taken with Sword of Mana for the GBA, this is a much more faithful remake of Final Fantasy Adventure for the GB.

If we are doing such things then how many here know Faith No More for anything other than Epic? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG_k5CSYKhg

A Small Victory
Midlife Crisis

Both of these come to mind, without a reference to look at. :)

In regards to the Toadies, I had always heard that the name Possum Kingdom was in reference to a state park in the band's home state of Texas. Wikipedia seems to back this up (Possum Kingdom State Park, which includes Possum Kingdom Lake).

Quote from: Wikipedia
The song's origins lie in folklore from the band's native state of Texas. Possum Kingdom Lake is a lake in North Texas near Fort Worth. In the documentary "Dark Secrets: The Stories of Rubberneck", Lewis further elaborates that he intended "Possum Kingdom" to be a continuation of the story told in the song "I Burn". While he envisioned "I Burn" to be a story about cult members immolating themselves in order to ascend to a higher plane, "Possum Kingdom" was about one of the immolated people becoming "just smoke, and ...he goes to Possum Kingdom [Lake] and tries to find somebody to join him."

While this was their only major hit (that I am aware of), they've had a release as recent as 2015, so they are still around.

I remember playing Beyond the Beyond way back in the day. Music was alright, had a nice SNES asthetic, but the gameplay was soooooo sloooooow. Isn't it also basically the precursor to the Golden Sun games?

It looks and plays fairly similar, at least.

I don't do much board gaming these days.

I did use to love Hero Quest (it has a board, so I'm counting it :P). Also, I played a lot of Dungeon, Shadowlord, and Scotland Yard with a few friends when I was younger.

As for Monopoly... meh. The card game, however, is pretty fun (Monopoly Deal).

If CCGs count, then Magic: The Gathering.

If not, probably either Exploding Kittens or Cards Against Humanity.

In the 2nd camp, I actually liked Deadly Towers, even though most people seem to despise it.

If they add proper gamepad support, I *might* consider it for the Shield TV.

No way I'm playing through it on my phone though.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Does anyone know what game this is?

My guess is Wild Fang/Tecmo Knight.

This is what the description made me think of, as well.

It may be "a little negative" but, I will admit there have been times I wished I could ignore threads and/or users in whole...

As others have noted, probably either an FF2 or FF5 partial translation in the mid-90s.

Damn you must be an old timer like me then.

Getting up there...  :-\

Is gaming doing a little better in WV than it was in the old days?

Not sure what you mean..? I'm probably not the best person to gauge anything by for the general area, as 90% of the stuff I play is single-player... and I'm a bit of a hermit these days.  ;)

Played it a little in the early days, while it was still free, and basically the LttP clone.

No clue how it fares these days... I haven't thought about it in so long that I didn't even realize it was still a thing.

To be fair, Conker did start out much more kid-friendly (see Conker's Pocket Tales). BFD was a vast difference.

That being said, he looks rather hideous in that video...

So far, I've stuck with Retroarch on my Shield TV system.

I think the thicker font would look better on a CRT.

He's probably right there. It's been a while since I used a CRT, but I do recall some thin fonts being much harder to read on some games on my old CRT.

Eh... old news, being this this is just a port of a port from the cell phone release, which looked just as bad.

Being that Odin Sphere was mentioned, it bears mentioning another Vanillaware title. Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Wii)

Only 2 characters, as far as I recall, but I believe they had separate stories, take different paths, and fight different bosses.

This was also ported to the Vita as Muramasa Rebirth, which I think added some new playable characters.

Also, +1 for Threads of Fate / Dewprism. :thumbsup:
