I've grown quite fond of old Sega games. Golden Axe, Altered Beast, Wonder Boy; all excellent. So I was hoping Space Harrier would scratch the same itch, and I'm happy to say, I've been scratched. This game is dope.
It's as simple as I am, but as tough as I'm not. It kinda feels like F-Zero meets Galaga (I know F-Zero came out after it), and while it doesn't do much, the stuff it does does, it does really well.
My guest this week is an OG hot dog and one of the guys that made a $1,000 donation to my Extra Life stream last year, McG. He grew up a Master System kid, a Space Harrier fan, and he took me to the church of Sega this week. Insert whatever you're supposed to say at the church here. Amen?
And before we harry it up in space, I race through another edition of the Infamous Intro!
This week, someone asks if consoles could be on the way out, and one platform for all games could be on its way in? Will Fire Emblem ever get some RTG love? And what are my favourite Mario Kart tracks of all-time?
Plus we play another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 Sega arcade classics: Virtua Fighter 2, The House of the Dead 2, and Crazy Taxi.
