flash cart and finishing games.

the akumajō densetsu victory screen.

My Everdrive N8 Pro flash cart came in on Thursday and I've been playing my NES like crazy! Yesterday evening, I beat Akumajō Densetsu, the Famicom version of Castlevania III using save states. Even that was hard— I don't know how long it's gonna take me to beat it unassisted! It was pretty neat seeing the differences between the NES version released in the US and the Famicom version released in Japan. The extra channels in the Famicom release's soundtrack are awesome.

The debate whether beating a game with save states counts as a completion rages on, of course.

Now that I have a flash cart and can play just about every NES ROM I can get my hands on, I foresee myself finishing a lot more games. So I figured I'd start a new page to track completed games (edit 3/19/23: nvm).

That's about all for today. Until next time, be well! :)
