I learned recently about the fantastic Japanese version of Spiderman
, which was created around 1978. Of course, when I saw how awesome it looks, I chastized myself for not hearing of it before, but I guess you can't know everything! I'm sure it's available in video form here and there, and I bet it's very worth watching.
In other news, the TurboGrafx 16 game collection of Steen has joined the Preserve, and will be added to that section shortly. For those who have not played it, Devil's Crush is a good time, and I generally don't dig on the video pinball. I think it's cool when you take the pinball idea, and do stuff that you couldn't do on a table, whereas a straight port is always just missing something in my eyes.
