Dragon Warrior II (Game Boy Color, 2000) - A Side

Dragon Warrior 2, yet again. I missed out on playing this on the original NES until the advent of emulators in the late 90's. In a world without emulation, I likely would have been into this portable version of the game back in 2000. Let's see how it translated into a smaller-screen format. Many years before we had the fancy high-res phone version, we had this. Note: I'll be using Warrior and Quest interchangeably here when talking about the game, but I'm specifically referring to this as Warrior in the title because that's what it was called at the time.

Dragon Quest II (2014 Remake) Pt 2 - Desafinado

The two Gremlins can be a real challenge if you're underleveled, or they can be a glorified regular enemy fight if you're not. Either way you've gotta fight FOUR of them like a half hour later, so things aren't getting any easier.

The Loin King

With Valentine's Day tomorrow, I've got something extra special for everyone. Put on some Barry White, because it's time for the story of the greatest lion of all time: The Loin King. Only on the Super NES.

Because someone had to keep all the female lions happy.

And that someone... The Loin King.

Dragon Warrior (Game Boy Color, 2000)

That's right, we're going back to the Game Boy now. Seeing where portable games were at just a mere decade and a half before the HD Android ports. What a difference a few years can make. I've never played this one before so I'm looking forward to it.

Dragon Quest (iOS/Android, 2014)

I always have time for a quick run-through of the original Dragon Quest. This Android remake completely redoes the game's dialogue while revamping the graphics to the level of the Super Famicom DQIII remake. For a portable game, it's really well-done. It's still a fairly short game but you can get more out of it if you want to.

Highlander: The Series 3x16 - Methos

This is it, the long-awaited debut of Methos, the 5000 year old immortal who has seen it all. He's a mainstay for the second half of this show. Originally he was supposed to be a one-off character. That is, until Peter Wingfield played the role so well that the showrunners decided not to kill him off at the end of the episode. It was a good call, because after this episode the audience was super into Methos and it wasn't long before they brought him back as a series regular due to popular demand.
