This is going to take a bit of explanation, but here goes. I live near the Great Southern Shopping Center in Ohio, which is on High Street in a fairly rough area, though I wouldn’t say it was necessarily that “tough,” just kinda ghetto. Over the past 7 years or so, I’ve noticed a disturbing trend: there have been more and more seagulls around getting run over, gathering in flocks, shitting on everything, picking through trash, and so on.
Is it worth dying, dying, and dying again for a grand action/adventure of epic proportions? That’s what developer Nigoro set out to found out. A remake of the 2005 cult classic, La-Mulana is everything an oldschool action/adventure title should be down to its very core. It also helps that the music is pretty badass, too.
For a number of years my brother and I had a regular babysitter. Such a demeaning phrase…”babysitter.” But I didn’t mind; the babysitter had two kids roughly our age that were pretty awesome and also gamers, so it was all good. They also had a pimpin’ computer that was running both Monkey Island and Leisure Suit Larry. Guess which one I got to play? That’s right: neither.
