The Future Is Nigh! Or At Least Soon…

Greetings Leaguelettes!

It is I, your e’er humble Chairman!

While Captain Pain is busy flushing our hard drives of Inuyasha fanfics– I’ve decided to swoop in and share a little about what you folks can expect from us in the next coming months.

Montana, Joe Montana

What if I told you that there was a time that you could play a NFL licensed game, and it had nothing to do with John Madden. That the A, B, and C buttons were all you needed to call and run plays. That the two games that came out before they got the licence, had the greatest quarter back of his generation, possibly the greatest of all time, front and center of the game, and they were named after him. ESPN and Captain Pain Products presents, 30 for……. OK, that’s enough before I and the HBCL gets sued. We are a bunch of empty bags anyway. Since it’s Monday, my Painkillers know that it’s time to grab a buddy, and since I said the buttons earlier, you should have hooked up your Genesis by now. It’s time to play NFL Sports Talk Football 93 featuring Joe Montana.

As I said earlier, this is the third game in the Joe Montana series of games, but the first to use the NFL license. This allowed them to actually use the names of the 28 teams at the time and use the phrase “Super Bowl “,when in the past they only used the city, and they played in the Sega Bowl. The game also has commentary. It uses some robotic voice, cause it sure as hell doesn’t sound like the late Lon Simmons. The playbook is also a good size, so there are many plays to choose from.

The game is fun to play. You and your buddy will have a good time playing this classic game, and trying to remember what teams were good, and who was on each team during that time. You can also see the evolution of football games, and see some of the building blocks for a game like Madden. Also you playing this game, you have a much better chance of getting and winning the Super bowl, than winning your fantasy football league.

The Barbarian, The Amazon and The Dwarf

Hello November! Here at the HBCL, we love our themes. So this month’s theme is No Saves November ( I see what you did there Chairman!). So, any post that falls under this theme, will be about games that don’t have a normal save function, or someone broked, up the save options. Therefore, for my first post for No Save November, I figured that I would start off with something that many people would know. Now, let’s dive head first into Golden Axe for the Sega Genesis.
