Too many ideas, not enough time. As I move forward into a new job, working on the FamiQuest videos just isn’t feasible at the moment. However! If you all are interested, I might be able to start the FamiQuest with smaller capsule reviews written in the style of my NES reviews. What do you … Continue reading FamiQuest, Coming Soon?
thanks to Famicom Blog (by way of Hardcore Gaming 101) for this stellar picture of Famicom carts. Ok, so I got a little excited about the idea of doing Famicom reviews so soon. Sorry about that. Making insane promises and not delivering is a nasty habit of mine. Here’s what’s real. The name … Continue reading FamiQuest: Let’s Learn Together
Today – finally – my book, The NES Compendium, is available to back via Kickstarter. Check it out here. This book is not just the blog regurgitated onto paper. All 754 reviews currently on questicle.net have been edited, revised, and in some cases, completely rewritten. Additional screenshots and box art will be … Continue reading The NES Compendium is now on Kickstarter!
My quest to review every NES game might have ended, but my love affair with Nintendo rages onward, for better (Yoshi’s Wooly World!) and for worse (Amiibo Festival???). It is said love affair that has forced me into a podcast relationship with two other like-minded gents, Sam (@thepixel_dude) and Sven (@RetroRedemption). On the … Continue reading Hey, I’m a co-host on a Nintendo Podcast
My first encounter with the NES came at the age of four. My parents and I had just moved into a “new” house – new to us, but in its current state, a ramshackle fixer-upper. I was frightened by the house’s dilapidated appearance, particularly my room which was one of the scariest in the … Continue reading Happy 30th Birthday, NES
UPDATE: 09/14/2015 The goal remains: get the NES Compendium out by the end of 2015/early 2016. By 11/2015, you will (hopefully) see what the book looks like, inside and out. The NES’ 30th anniversary is 10/18/85 and I’d like to commemorate the day, particularly as I missed Mario’s 30th anniversary. Thinking about a … Continue reading Updates for The NES Compendium
Hey everyone, Dylan here with a brief update. While the NES Compendium is being sorted out, I thought I’d keep Questicle.net going with some guest posts from retro gamers I trust and respect. First up, we have Tom Badguy from VTW Productions. Tom and I have been Internet buds for a couple … Continue reading What Were the Best Selling NES Games?
Yes, the post title is accurate: a book based on Questicle.net is in pre-production, tentatively titled “The NES Compendium.” The book will focus on revised reviews (all 754 of them), more screenshots, yearly overviews of the NES from 1985-1994, and…? If you were to purchase a book that chronicled the NES in … Continue reading The NES Book is Coming and I Need Your Help
To those who have stumbled onto this antiquated blog – strangers in a strange land – welcome. Let me tell you what Questicle.net is all about. For about 3 1/2 years – July 2010 to March 2014, give or take a couple months off – I, Dylan Cornelius, reviewed every North American NES … Continue reading The Quest to Review Every NES Game has been Completed
PART 1: A WASTE OF TIME PART 2: A WASTE OF MONEY PART 3: A WASTE #25 – AFTER BURNER Just when you thought it was safe to play Sega’s After Burner on your NES, the licensing gods cursed every illegally produced cartridge, making the result thoroughly … Continue reading The 86 Worst NES Games: #s 25-1
PART 1 IS THE SIPPY CUP PART 2 IS THE ADULT GLASS #50 – MENACE BEACH/SUNDAY FUNDAY: THE RIDE Menace Beach was released three times throughout the NES’ lifespan: once in a multi-cart, once by itself, and once as a re-skin called Sunday Funday. Color Dreams/Wisdom Tree must have … Continue reading The 86 Worst NES Games: #s 50-26
IF YOU CARE ABOUT ORDER, YOU’LL READ PART 1 FIRST! #73 – PLATOON I imagine navigating through swaths of Vietnam jungle would be confusing, particularly if you’re a terrified American boy who’s in over his head. Platoon replicates the roaming-through-Vietnam experience almost too well. It’s incredibly easy to get lost, … Continue reading The 86 Worst NES Games: #s 73-51
