So for a while now I've been really into collecting old Nintendo Power magazines and going through them and making lists of old games that scored well. So far it's been a fascinating journey and leading me to good games, bad games, classics and forgotten games.
Having now played Tecmo NBA, I KNOW that I played this back in like sixth grade at this kid, Richard's house. I bet I was even into it at the time. But man. It feels rough to play now. Just wrapping my head around the controls feels like a chore, and all that flicker is maddening.
So yeah, unfortunately I don't have a lot to say about this one. I'm sure it was a marvel at the time, but it's painful to play now.
Having said that, I used this game to test out my new My Arcade Retro Champ which my wife got me for my birthday. It's this cool tablet thingy that plays NES and Famicom games. So far, it seems absolutely awesome and I look forward to tackling some better games on it. I feel like this device is PERFECT for RPG's.
