  • Giant Bomb and a bunch of other companies owned by Red Ventures was recently sold to Wikia, the commercial game wiki Wikipedia sister project. I always get a little bit nervous when this kind of thing happens, because it reminds me that the future of these sites is never guaranteed. This made me think about which sites I have used the most to build . I'm now building a list of my primary references, which might serve as a good starting point for game history researchers.

  • Completed the game on Easiest difficulty (MiSTer). Weirdly, this was the first time I played through the original arcade game. It actually looked a bit weird to me, because I have spent so much time with the SEGA Genesis and Amiga ports. In any case, the game is short and fun, and the final boss is completely unfair.
