Wonderful Wikis

After years of tough work, Mento has finished it. The Giant Bomb Wiki has full pages for any singular diversion to be expelled for a SNES/Super Famicom. That’s roughly 1,770 wiki pages! In respect of his tough work we am permitting him to name a few of his favorite pages:

  • Rudra no Hihou: A late Squaresoft RPG for a system, with a unequivocally cool, novel sorcery complement that let we submit difference to emanate spells. Only recently been fan translated, I’ve been operative on lifting a profile.
  • American Battle Dome: we spent approach too prolonged essay about this stupid multiplayer rival pinball game. I’d like for GBWest to try it out some day, given it combines Jeff’s loves of pinball, Atari’s Warlords and crazy Japanese games.
  • Ganbare Goemon 2: Kiteretsu Shogun Magginesu: Part of given we enjoyed doing all this wiki things was given of a games we kept discovering. we knew there had been other SNES Legend of Mystical Ninja games that never saw localization, though we didn’t know only how many or how crazy they got. The second SNES diversion introduced Goemon’s hulk conflict drudge crony Impact, among other things. (I’m 100% behind Ben’s efforts to get a Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon underline going.)
  • Ranma 1/2 : Chougi Ranbu Hen: This one goes out to Jason, who was an overwhelming adequate duder to give me a Twitter scream out for this whole SNES wiki business. This is a (marginally) higher SNES Ranma 1/2 warrior game, if Ranking of Fighters ever wanted to give that anime authorization another shot.
  • Jelly Boy: Ending on a nauseating note. Jelly Boy is a PAL-exclusive platformer and we trust a initial ever SNES page we created. Not to be confused with Smart Ball (which was called Jelly Boy in Japan), Jelly Boy had this neat shapeshifting automechanic that let we spin into all sorts of things to finish any of a colorful levels.
