Retro Vault: PlayStation ads, Pilotwings 64, Mickey Mania

Postby toaplan » 23 Feb 2013, 20:46

A new Pilotwings would be a great launch title for a Nintendo next-gen console, which hopefully will be announced in the near future... :wink:

Mickey Mania was okay, especially on the Mega CD. But it wasn't as good as Castle of Illusion and World of Illusion, which were some of the best platform games on the Mega Drive. Capcom's SNES Mickey game was also quite good with some pretty graphics. I think out of those games, Castle of Illusion was the game that made the biggest splash, because it was released before the first Sonic game. Sonic 1 reset the visual standard for platformers, until Donkey Kong Country on the SNES...

God, I miss Pilotwings 64. Just exploring the islands, small as they seem now, was an absolute joy with so many subtle little easter eggs scattered around, especially in Little States. The recent 3DS game was a complete joke. I'd buy a WiiU just to play Pilotwings if they did it properly.

And the best Playstation advert of all was Blown Away which, if I recall correctly, was given away in magazines as a promo VHS tape? I still have the Archive CD used as the soundtrack which I bought due the video.

I've been watching these articles for a while and as an American, you Brits have some very weird advertisements! I love them! I wish we had more stuff like that on this side of the ocean.

Then do a page or two slamming Waverace 64 and how bad it was :D
