Since I should be done with Final Fantasy very soon, I'll replace the poll with next fortnight's options. Expect to see an article on Terra and Celes' Relentlessly Depressing Adventures within a week or so (after I finish reviewing Tales of the Abyss). Anyway, the three randomly selected games to choose from this time are:Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
Fun Fact: it took me several years to realise that the game isn't titled "Diddy Kong's Quest." Other Fun Fact: It took me several years for me to reach (what I hope is) the final area in the game. Now it's time to brave those damn acid pits and take down K. Rool's pirate-themed posse. Vote for this one if you want me to take on a brutally difficult platformer.Gargoyle's Quest
Definitely cooler than Diddy's Kong Quest, but much more challenging. This odd Game Boy platformer/RPG hybrid is a spin-off of Capcom's Ghost and Goblins series, which should say something about the difficulty of the game. Unlike Donkey Kong Country 2, I'll have to play this on the actual cartridge as opposed to on the Virtual Console, which means no save states! Better find somewhere to write down all these passwords. Vote for this one if you want me to take on an even more brutally difficult platformer. Art Style: PicoPict
Also known as Pictobits in the US, this DSiWare title has a massive flaw - being red/green colourblind makes some of the levels almost impossible to complete. Still, I find it hard to hate a game that's part Tetris, part NES sprites (and somehow completely different from Tetris DS). Besides, the real reason to play this game is to hear a bunch of remixed retro tunes by awesome Japanese chiptune band, YMCK. Vote for this one if you want to see me overcome my disability (and also because I don't want to take on a brutally difficult platformer).
