Powerpad games are so bad
I’ve been on a huge Powerpad kick lately where I like to wake up and stream the games that use the stupid thing. Not too many people stream Powerpad games which is a bit of a shame. It’s a fun way to get into a game and the peripheral should have gotten a few more titles when it came out in the 80’s. I never had one (being a Sega girl) so experiencing the Powerpad is all fresh and new for me.
I picked up Super Team Games at a video game trade show a few weeks back but I had yet to try it out. It was one of the titles I needed to complete my set of North American Powerpad games and I paid $11.95 for it. Why not $12? Why do you want to fuss with tiny coins at a huge show? What are you doing to me, nerds?? Just tell me $12 & have at it. Nerds.
I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t have the manual so someone in the chat posted up the game FAQ which had a strategy guide. The main game is an obstacle course where each section would switch up how you use the power pad to keep the gameplay interesting. The “I-don’t-know-what-i’m-doing” approach I was trying was just running on numbers 5 & 6 till I was drenched in sweat. That’s how I found out the race will end at 10 minutes if you do not finish it.
This game MURDERED me. I was a hot sweaty mad mess at the end. Until I have a better idea of what I am doing here I think my Super Team Games days are over.
I was very pleased when I woke up on Tuesday morning and there was a package waiting for me! A while back when I was streaming Shenmue someone at Twitch promised to send me these collector cards. They finally came! I’ll have to figure out the best way to display them so that I can still read the backs. Thank you again for the amazing gift and the T-Shirt :3
My buddy Owlnonymous had his Happy New Year this week so I made him this iPad Pro drawing to wish him well. Hope you had a special day, buddy 😀
I mailed out a bunch of Dank Art to people two weeks ago and already people are receiving them. Please take photos of the work I send you so I can post it up- I love seeing my work in the wild.
This is the small collection I sent LordBBH from a few of the games he’s played during his arcade randomizer streams. I originally was only going to send two images, but included the cyclops mammoth because he recently 1CC’d Space Harrier (it was around my birthday & I’m a HUGE Space Harrier fan). I always get a kick when people enjoy my work.
Pieces I created so far this week are these pieces from Macaw45‘s Neo Geo stream on Tuesday where he mostly played fighting games and gave Kaiser Knuckle’s impossible boss, The General, another go. I don’t think it’s possible to beat that boss at all and trying is only going to cook your goose. To keep it interesting, Macaw streamed some obscure Japanese Bird Simulator while playing some death metal and the soundtrack to B-Rap Boys. Tuesdays.

Heres a few pieces I made on Wednesday watching BBH play a few random arcade games on a chill stream. I’m still watching his stream as well as ex_mortis play thru this Zelda game. The week is only halfway over and I still have more work I need to finish.
