DS Fanboy travels Around the Interweb to whine about hard games


Siliconera has started doing these great roundtables called "From Around the Interweb" in which various game writers opine on a topic. The last one was about the DS Style series-- check it out for some interesting discussion on non-games!

This week, Spencer was kind enough to invite me along for a discussion of hard games. This week's panel included Spencer, RawMeatCowboy from GoNintendo, CheapyD from CheapAssGamer, PSP Fanboy's Andrew Yoon (who has made mysterious appearances here!), and, for some reason, me! We were all able to reach a consensus on the divisive issue of whether or not hard games were, in fact, hard. I had a great time and I was honored to be in such illustrious company!

I've managed to go all the way through world 8 right up to Bowser before getting hammered. I will beat it someday I swear. Finally making progress beyond the first seven screens in Legend of Zelda and have the bow.

I had the above pictured game... dark castles or deadly castles or bat-and-worm-and-moving-hole-filled castle or some junk like that. I got it for Xmas and didn't get another game until my birthday. It was a sad 6 months.

yeah I looked up the name. Did you like the game or the grizzly looking fellow on the cover, because I'm pretty sure the game was awful.

I tried to love Deadly Towers. I played the hell out of it, and it kicked my ass on an epic scale. Frequently.

Good times.
