If you have ever owned the wonderful Psygnosis video game Microcosm, specifically on the SEGA Mega CD, you may have come across a small paper pamphlet written entirely in Japanese. If you can’t read Japanese, or if your copy of Microcosm didn’t come with this fun little informational pamphlet and you appreciate a healthy dose of text spat out by an online translation engine, then your luck is well and truly in!
Yesterday afternoon I decided to dig out a bunch of PlayStation 2 games and give them all a bit of a once over. Stretch their legs after a long time dormant so to speak. One of the games I dug out was Metal Slug 6. A title in the famous and much-loved Metal Slug series that I think doesn’t quite get the recognition it so richly deserves. When you ask someone which of the Metal Slug games is their personal favourite, you will nearly always receive responses around any title except Metal Slug 6. To be honest up unitl yesterday afternoon I would very likely have delivered the same response.
