Mr Random Dave showed me this crazy overlooked PlayStation action game called, Rising Zan The Samurai Gunman; and my word, I seriously need to try this game out!
After finding the intro of the game on YouTube, I really wanted to play this game so much! A Wild-west gunman who travels to Japan to become a Samurai and returns to save his town is a great plot, but what makes this better is how silly, over the top and how it never takes itself seriously, ever!

It was my birthday over the weekend, and I got myself a good amount of birthday money. I went out and got myself a lot of awesome gaming stuff. There’s some boring things that I needed like new jeans and shirts, but let’s talk about the good stuff!
Early in the morning, I went to my local carboot sale and found a Russian man selling a whole bunch of games including a Sega Saturn Virtua Gun. It was a bummer that House of the Dead wasn’t included with the gun, but I bought 10 games from the seller for £50. Typically I don’t spend more than £30 at a carboot sale, but I did get a WiiU Game, Nintendo Land, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles on Wii, and Harvest Moon Magical Melody all boxed, complete and in great condition. The only unboxed games I got from the seller was Street Fighter 2 Turbo and FlashBack on the SNES. Even if I spent £50 on all this, it was originally going to be £65! But the seller was quite a pushover and haggled it down to £50; £15 off for all that isn’t bad at all! Continue reading →
Seriously! Look at it! It’s a GameBoy Multicart that’s simply two GameBoy carts stacked on top of each other! I can swear by looking at it that it’s taller than a GameBoy Camera; possibly taller than a GameBoy Game Genie! It’s totally ridiculous, but that in itself make me want it more! Plus I like to point out that this multicart has a button on the top. I’ve seen these before, they’re used to switch between games on the cart. I had a pirate multicart once; you had to keep flicking the on and off switch rapidly to switch between games. It was a pretty good multicart too that featured Dr. Mario (but I already own it by the time I got it), Klax, MotoCross Maniacs and of course the obligatory Battle City; because every multicart needs a version of Battle City on it!

Sure, the Virtual Boy was Nintendo’s pathetic excuse to fob off customers with new hardware when they kept pushing the release date of the Ultra 64, which then became the Nintendo 64 to later dates. Thing was at the time I was a huge Nintendo Fan; I hated the idea of Sega consoles, and I have yet to try out a PlayStation (to later discover my hatred to load times). Nintendo Magazine System, the Nintendo branch of the UK’s famous MeanMachine magazines would keep me informed about Nintendo related news on a monthly basis.
