On American Thanksgiving, LordBBH decided he was going to leap headfirst into playing Willow for NES which happens to be one of my fave RPG’s for the system as well as one game on my “to finish” list. Though I am not the biggest fan of Willow the movie (I was far too young to really appreciate the movie as a kid) I am a huge fan of the game and made amusing Dank Art along BBH’s frustrations and trials with the game. BBH got halfway thru before realizing it was going to take much longer to get thru it, so he shut it off and gave everyone the THANK they were waiting for and played a 1CC Credit of Willow for Arcade.
Macaw45 is going thru his collection of DOS Shareware games which range from palaces from Russia, Spain, Italy and Japan. For those who don’t know, back in the days of DOS people would dial into BBS’s and download shareware to “try it” before buying it or stores would have compilation disks of these programs to help sell more parts of the game. This was one way new or indie game devs would get their games out into the market and hopefully be their big break into the world of game development. You gotta think that there’s probably hundreds of thousands of games that are like this just floating around in some archival space on the internet and it’s part of Macaw’s ongoing project to discover and preserve the best of these games. Often these games seem too simple or even silly when you first start them up but often if you play them a little bit longer there’s something that sticks out about them that’s attractive or interesting. That’s a typical Macaw stream these days so check out some of the real ripe stuff he’s been unearthing from the dankest depths of the shareware market.
Next month it’s going to be all about PJ in my Dank Zine so I have been going by his Dragon View & FF9 streams to see what he’s been up to. For me, its the Final Fantsy 9 playthru he’s doing right now because when that game came out I didn’t give it the attention or credit it needed. I think everyone has an opinion about which Final Fantasy is the best and which are not, but I think this Final Fantasy was a true gem and the last of its kind. It’s charming and it has all the signature fantasy elements that made the series what it is from black mages to airships to special abilities like “EAT” it’s there. Often you don’t know how good you got it till its years later and someone shows you what you’ve been missing out on and I feel like I missed out hard with Final Fantasy 9.
PJ Stickers are in!
Hot off the presses are all the backer reward stickers featuring PJ’s sub emotes! Make sure you are subscribed to the Dank Zine before November 30th to get yourself a copy of the Zine featuring his interview as well as a free set of these stickers. Also, backers will get a special bonus sticker for just being awesome and backing my Patreon. Thank you always gu
I also have a sneak peek of what next month’s cover will look like! This months cover is done my Anthony Brennan who was actually featured in the first ever Dank Zine for his papercrafts and his passion for dressing up as Pro Wrestlers at conventions. Anthony is also a skilled illustrator and has had his work featured almost everywhere. I asked him to draw up something nice that reflected who PJ was without it catching on fire or glitching out. Thank you, Anthony!
