I was a teenage Space Harrier…

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

it’s true. I was.

Sadly I only played Space Harrier II on the MegaDrive, but goddamn was that a great game. And a few million years later, when I had the joy of playing through Shenmue and its sequel I was able to play a copy of the original Space Harrier in that, and it was just as good. Now I’m an old man [read, 22] and my days of sitting through an entire game in one sitting on its original console are few and far between sadly.

but for one shining moment, I flew through the fantasy zone, and I liberated it.  By shooting flying dragons and laser firing three headed turtles. goddamn old games are the best.
