Big Guff Power Hour

Thanks to a reader submission, we now know there was a level select and sound test hidden inside the first Metal Slug! Now if only we could find a way of loading different objects – looking at those test stages shows some curious object behaviours I didn’t notice before. I’m also testing the waters to […]

ONM Remembered is OVER!!!

Over five hundred entries over the course of nearly five years. I, uh, honestly wasn’t expecting this silly little column to run for that long! Somebody should probably have intervened. Like I said all the way at the beginning, the idea to scan these came about as a first step to finally chucking the old […]

Blast away and go, go, go!

Cramming it in before the new year, it’s a new Metal Slug: Missing in Action update! The real meat and potatoes is the overhauled concept art coverage, now serving as an art gallery for each game and sporting translations for a number of pieces, revealing factoids English fans otherwise never knew about. Or at least, […]

Can you escape from Robotnik’s island of traps?

Here’s a pile of stuff – so much stuff I’m going to bust out some bulletpoints! It’s probably unnecessary, but what the heck! The Legend of Zelda playthrough is finally finished! Well, I completed the game last year and only wrote a conclusion this week. I’m bad at being punctual. Some Games I Played In […]

All I know is my own existence.

There’s a few small pokey updates for the Bomberman Shrine and Metal Slug: Missing in Action. Don’t mind me, I’m just chucking up updates when I feel I’ve noodled long enough on something. I’m still otherwise farting about like I usually do!

Indy Bomber and the Ring of Wishes

Splurge! Metal Slug: Missing in Action’s got some relics from the first game’s development, plus some unfinished areas from Metal Slug 7. The Bomberman shrine has coverage for GB 2 and the DS game. As for Random Hoo Haas, there’s the penultimate chapter of the Zelda playthrough, and some waffling about the rest of the […]

Give a squid a home

No cash prize to hand out, I’m afraid – I went and found the unused Metal Slug Advance areas myself. There’s still a debug menu and a Slug Mariner to find, though, so if anyone in the audience has the hacking chops to find them, what are you waiting for?! The past couple of weeks […]

Super Marco Brothers

Metal Slug: Missing in Action finally saw an update after five years! Don’t get your hopes up, though – although a debug menu in MS6 was discovered, it’s not hiding anything wild or exciting. I’m still holding out for a debug menu in Metal Slug Advance to be unearthed, and I am seriously tempted to […]

I spent ten minutes trying to think of a post title (and all I got was this lousy update)

Logged a couple of more chapters into the Legend of Zelda playthrough. I’ve finished the game already, so the final chapters are just awaiting a write-up. Expect to see them… sometime! So, Random Hoo Haas turned ten years old a couple of months ago. I’m still not sure what to think about that! To be […]

“It is face astringent juice with two people”

An update, huh? It’s been a while since we had one of those! Because one person said they wanted to see more of them, I finished translating four more Otimusya pages (F-Zero, Wolfenstein 3D, Final Fight* and Hokuto no Ken) and two more chapters of the Zelda playthrough. And because nobody asked for them, there’s […]

Use your heart and Boost Fire!

The next four episodes of F-Zero: The Legend of Falcon are up! Because I’m a sucker for schedules (and stressing over deadlines) there’ll be three to four new episodes every Wednesday and Sunday. If I find the time I’d love to write some thoughts on the series, but since I’m still in the middle of […]

To be continued… Push Start!

Would you believe it if I told you Random Action Hour finally saw a new update with brand new coverage? (if you said no then hoo boy i hear ya, i forgot how badly written a lot of that site is. i literally have no idea how anyone understood my transformers season 4 write-ups) Yeah, […]

Two (and a bit) years in the making…

Out of the primordial sludge comes something foul; something depraved; something no man ever dared to see again on this earth… … a new Random Hoo Haas update!? Yeah, erm, this took way longer than it should half. There’s a couple of new Games I Own reviews, and a brand new General Writing all about […]

Playing chess with cards

It wasn’t what I had planned for this month’s update, but here’s something: another chapter of that Zelda playthrough! What I had planned was a “some games I played in 2012” article, only this time I’d also be covering books, movies, TV shows and whatever else of interest. It got a bit hideously long and […]

The plot summary years in the making

Well, it’s been a while since that’s happened – there’s some updates! The Bomberman shrine has gotten some love – Bomberman II and Bomberman for PC Engine have been totally finished with more fleshed-out content. Saturn Bomberman has coverage for world 3 and the Master Game, though it’s all rather unfinished – I’m hoping to […]

Dusty keys

We got ourselves a big ol’ Bomberman update; still not much in the way of groundbreaking new content, but personally, I’m just looking to spruce up the old content as best I can. Well, I’ve had my new computer for about three weeks now. It took a while to settle in, no thanks to me […]

Drunken Irishman correctly predicts end of the world

Bomberman Fantasy Race has been ported to the new layout. Not much actually new, but you don’t have to look at that awful dark green tiled backdrop any more. Watched The Birds. A few days ago I’d caught that episode of The Simpsons that parodies it with the babies in the daycare centre, and figured, […]

Update!

So, uh, I decided to go back to an unfinished project I started a little over four years ago. I sure hope somebody’s still interested in that stupid thing, otherwise I’ll have killed an afternoon for naught! (if anything, it’s better to have killed an afternoon for something you can still look at afterwards. You […]

It don’t take any fuel ’cause the rocket’s in my pocket

Bloop. Some updates! There’s Games I Own reviews, some music, a couple of sprites, and a Bomberman update that could’ve been a lot more substantial if I had the patience to work on it. Recapping a game’s content in a blank, encyclopaedic manner only has its kicks for so long. Sometime!

Bomb on board

We’ve got ourselves an update on the Bomberman shrine, and a new General Writing. Don’t forget to check the title tags! Watched Flightplan a couple of days ago. It’s a bit like two films wedged together – one is an atmospheric, almost psychological thriller about a crazy lady on a plane who claims to be […]
