A taste of Goemon Nostalgia.
Two games that my brothers and I loved during the 64 era was Mystical Ninja: starring Goemon and Goemon’s Great Adventure. Developed by Konami and obscure to western audiences, the Goemon titles were some of the best action games on the Big N’s 64 bit console. I remember the games fondly with the obscure characters and simple combat, but most of all the tunes in the game are still what I remember most. Both songs are fantastic; I would leave the title screen play over and over. I had a game save right before the Impact Theme just to listen to the song and play the section over and over again. Watching Impact plummet down a whole was priceless, and Sasuke is still my favorite character from the series. Each title can be nabbed from Amazon for around $35 used and is well worth your time to hunt down. In light of our recent outage, here is some good laughs and some Japanese quirkiness.
