Clear #7 - Dragon Slayer: The Legend Of Heroes



Though definitely not perfect, it's a pretty good RPG if you have a sense of humor and enjoy cheesy dialogue.  I like to think of it as turn based Ys, as it has similarly cute little Falcom sprites, a bordered play field, and great tunes; and even though it's not ram 'em style fighting, the battles are quick and painless, even automatic if ya want.  Plus, you never really need to grind for hours on end just to make headway, and there's a handy item to reveal monsters when a little grinding is in order (bring the fight to the beasties!).  My only gripes are that it could use more cutscenes and that the voice work is ill fitting, but overall it's good fun and well worth a play through.

Clear #8 - Dragon's Curse



It's a bit primitive looking, but not offensively so, as everything is colorful, cartoony, and cute as hell.  It's fun too, with enough wandering around and back tracking to feel more adventurey than tedius (quick warps back to town help a ton); I just wish it were a bit longer.

Clear #9 - Urusei Yatsura - Stay With You



Not bad as far as digital comics go, with the action moving along at a fair pace, few (and easily avoided) game overs, a handful of not terribly difficult puzzles, and a few cute and/or funny scenes.  It's definitely worth a look for anyone interested in the genre, or at least anyone that's interested in Lummy.  :D

Now I gotta get me a copy with the bonus music disc, which is what I should've bought in the first place.

I can't read a lick of those squiggly things, yet I didn't have any problems following the story from the pictures or making consistent headway by methodically clicking away at commands until something happens.  There's only a handful of spots where you can 'die', but I only had to see the game over screen a couple of times before being able to recognize what I shouldn't be clicking on; just remember to save often.

Clear #10 - Splatterhouse



I really dig this one, and it's a good one to clear for Halloween, albeit a bit belatedly.  It's a bit grainy looking, but the gore and beastly badies make up for it, as do the creepy tunes and sound effects (my favorites being Jennifer's "help me" and the squeal of the fetus thingys).

P.S. - Is it just me or does that look a bit like Robin Williams?

I think my favorite track in the game is during the final boss fight.

Ha! Robin Williams!

And, yes, the most awesome moment in the game is when you have to kill Jennifer after she pleads for your help. Twisted.

Speaking of OBEY, you played Splatterhouse on HARD MODE, yes? If not, you haven't really beaten it properly. GO BACK AND BEAT IT LIKE A MAN (see what I did there?), NECRO.

Like all my clears, it was beaten on the normal difficulty level and without continues, but I'm willing to give it a go.  :mrgreen:
