Oddball Gaming Purchases

I had recently purchased a copy of an old NES game called Stinger, which looked to be a sequel or spin-off to that Twin Bee game I've played on the multicarts. Never really played it, but it came in an actual box! Amazing.

So I get home and popped the sucker into my FC Twin and pushed the power on. It was then I saw something was wrong.

For you see, the game I bought wasn't a shoot-em-up called Stinger, but a shoot-em-up called Tiger Heli. It's not a bad game by any means; just not the one I wanted to pick up.

So yeah, I feel ripped off - but on the other hand, it makes a good joke to play on someone who wants a "classic" game.

Also, while we're on the subject of oddball gaming purchases, I picked up a copy of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom for NES... despite a whole bunch of people making videos about how bad the game is. I'll probably post a review of the game (written form), but I highly recommend checking out the three-part Terrible NES Games Theatre review done by ericmansuper - it's perhaps the most in-depth and downright entertaining video reviews I've seen. Just look it up on YouTube and you'll find it quick.
