    Final Fantasy 5 Four Job Fiesta

    So, I haven’t been able to pump out SNES reviews as quickly as I would have liked. I started on Final Fantasy IV (SNES Final Fantasy II) and just couldn’t get into it. I’ll try again in the future but…I have a hard time getting past the terrible translation. I may try to play through […]

  • Arkanoid: Doh It Again Review

    – I’m probably not going to finish this game, there are 99 stages and sitting through just one is pretty painful – The intro has a surprising amount of story:

  • ActRaiser Review

    – I changed the battery on this board, it wasn’t saving anymore. Changing the battery was terrifying, I was convinced the battery was going to explode if the solder got too hot. – The ‘b’ button is to confirm selection, and ‘y’ is to cancel. I guess that makes sense, the rightmost button is used […]

  • Super Castlevania IV Review

    – The controls don’t always feel tight. – The jumping physics seem odd, even in the SNES era. Can change directions but still feels stiff. – No battery, game uses a password system. 4×4 grid, composed of holy water, axes, hearts and empty spaces. I’m going to store the codes as I go, here’s one: […]

  • SNES Repro – Secret of Mana 2

    Secret of Mana 2 (Seiken Densetsu 3) was the first reproduction I purchased and has really drawn me into the whole reproduction world. I’m a huge fan of the original Secret of Mana, it’s a terrific action RPG that was released by Square in 1993. At the time the sequel never made it to the […]

  • SNES Repro – Treasure of the Rudras

    Lately I’ve been into purchasing reproduction SNES carts on eBay or through 3rd party sites like Timewalk Games. “What in the hell are reproduction SNES carts” you’re probably asking. Well, basically, these individuals/companies are creating physical SNES cartridges that play either a) games only ever officially released in Japan with English translation patches applied to […]

  • I Think the Site is No Longer Hacked

    After a traditionally long absence I’ve decided to randomly start posting on Awesome Radical Gaming again. Because, why not? I was inspired by Will Smith, long story. I think I also fixed the very much hacked RSS feed. I don’t understand how it is that WordPress always gets hacked. The plugins? I don’t know, or […]

  • I Feel Like Super Nintendo Games Are Just Getting More Expensive

    My dream is to some day own Star Fox: Super Weekend but, at prices like these, that’s just never going to happen. I can accept that, it’s actually rare. But why is Earthbound now going for an average of about $150? Why are you so expensive, Mega Max X3? Chrono Trigger, available on I don’t […]

  • Virtual Console Update – Harvest Moon (SNES)

    I totally missed this update…Harvest Moon games are pretty radical, and I always wanted to get the SNES version. Unfortunately, it was always impossible to find or over priced…but not anymore. The older Harvest Moon games were the best. The first one I got was for the N64, and I like that one way better […]
