First awesome thing I noticed today, this blog finally has a follower! Woo!

Anyway, yesterday I got myself a copy of the Lost Vikings for the GBA. It's a perfect conversion from the SNES version of the game. The sound is all there and the controls aren't too gimped by missing two buttons. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to use the items in my inventory but once I got that down it was smooth sailing from there.

I'd be willing to go as far as say this is the best version I've played. It's got the ass kicking soundtrack of the SNES version but more importantly it's got a built in save feature. With many save slots. So I don't have to mess with any of the passwords. This is mostly a good thing but I am a little disappointed I can't go straight to the Egypt levels to dick around. I love those levels and I love the music even more.

I wish Lost Vikings 2 was ported to the GBA with a save feature. That'd be way awesome. I still need to finish Lost Vikings 2 on the SNES. I'm in the pirate levels and so far those stages have the best music in the game. Man, this series has the best game music I've ever heard. Everyone should play and beat these games just to experience the sound.

Whoa, I can't believe I was your first follower. Even though you might not believe it, it is true but I was using my AIM account back then which was gamefreak208 since I did not know how to put the user name that I use now. Also, I came here and followed you because I heard your audio comment on G and DB Radio back in November 2009 explaining your Desert Bus Event and checked out your blog since G and DB provided a link to your blog on the podcast description back when they were on
