Game Sack

Some people suggested a dedicated thread for Game Sack, so here it is.

Here is the channel if you are interested in subscribing or doing any of that nonsense.


And here is the latest episode, which is about 16-bit ninja games!



Enjoy. Or be banned.

I always felt that both Shadow Dancer and Shinobi III's soundtracks were far better than Revenge of Shinobi's. Yuzo Koshiro was/is a great composer, don't get me wrong, but he really shined with Streets of Rage 1 & 2, Actraiser, Super Adventure Island, etc. RoS is more techno beats. Ninja Spirit is clearly trying to distance itself from Shinobi's style of play, e.g. changing weapons on the fly, floaty jumps, etc.

I'll have to go with Joe on this one: Shadow Dancer is the most consistently fun game of the bunch. Revenge of Shinobi has too much trial and error.

P.S. You left out some ninja games, like The Ninja Warriors Again for the SNES.

We're pretty sure that everyone's favorite pastime is informing us of which games we missed. We even hinted about it in the episode.

If you're going to offer a condescending attitude, that's alright. It's called ego-stroking. Nevertheless, I can find many things to do other than watch/comment on your videos.

Probably not, since I'm not sure what you're referring to... unless it is a pun. In that case I would have to admonish you! Now that I look at the spelling again..... (slaps self for missing that)

I meant the fact that I was the one who suggested it and then turned around and called you vein for doing it.

That came off as very condescending. I mean, if you commented in a thread and the original poster gave a snide reply w/o addressing anything you said, you wouldn't be too pleased. I didn't bring up Ninja Warriors to start trouble, I was simply making conversation.

Also I thought the turbo grafix ninja game was the best. So much fun.

This deserves more views. More views than all the shitty Call of Duty gameplay commentaries which get millions of views.

I hit the like button. If that doesn't do the job I don't know what possibly could.
