So for the past month I've been playing Overboard! on and off and had the title/main menu music stuck in my head.

But today I just started whistling something else. For the WHOLE day I was jamming to a tune I couldn't remember where it was from...
I FINALLY worked out where it was from, and I am here to hand in my gamer license.

If someone cannot instantly recall a track from Secret of Mana, they can't call themselves a gamer.
The rule only applies to people aged 5 to 90. and I am in that age bracket, and am hanging my head in shame right now for not INSTANTLY knowing where it was from.
It's even more humiliating because it's part of the soundtrack to one of only SIX good RPG's ever made.

FOR SHAME!

Jokes on you, I've played through Chrono Trigger a half dozen times (and Robotrek once!) on the SNES.

E.V.O.? Check.
Terranigma? Check.
Illusion of Gaia? Check.

After all that, I've played about an hour of Secret of Mana. Maybe I'll play through Evermore first just to be spicy.

That’s not the first time I’ve heard the story about RE2 on N64, but it remains fascinating every time.

In that thumbnail they picked, I've had 3 of those controllers. The joyball on commodore 64, the performance 64 dildo, and the NeGcon.

He is 100% wrong about the quickshot Joyball. I had the Commodore 64 one, and there is literally no better way to play wizball. hands down. Period.
He also used the 64 dildo wrong.. Everyone knows it's the best controller for Formula 1.
nailed it with the Jogcon though, it's a bit shit, but the NeGcon is still amazing.

Ah the Master System version, still have my copy with the added promo bits that came when I got it from a store long since dead, think it may have been Tandy but cant quite remember now as it was so long ago, it was definatly not a store youd expect to get your games from though
