Your Belmonts – The Yokoi Kids

We made a post on Twitter to draw some of the lesser-known Belmonts. Here’s what we got.

Belmont_byJasonHamiltonFred Belmont was a disappointing part of the lineage. Afraid to even go out for groceries. Can be often seen shivering in a wall space. –Jason Hamilton @haiirocyon

Belmontpants_byJohnnyKetchumEveryone knows that Belmont clan would never wear pants. Jean Belmont was probably a result of a curse.  –Johnny Ketchum @johnnyketchum

Turok on the Game Boy: Was it Good, Nostalgia or Something Else? – Jason Hamilton

Like usual, Jason Hamilton wrote a delightful and clever essay about this month’s game. Except this game he holds close to his heart.

November 2019 – Turok: Battle of the Bionosaurs (1997)

24151_front

A Doom style 3D shooter for the Gameboy!? This should be interesting. JK folks, it’s a side scroller. Doesn’t look terrible though. This game was picked by Jason Hamilton who had this to say about it:

“All of the Yokoi have fond memories associated with a game and one of those childhood ones for me, is the first Turok on the Gameboy. Trust me, you will need your memory for this one. A game does not have to be fantastic to be loved, sometimes it is purely it’s place in time that mattered to you. That is what I want to share, being as we a closing on the season to bring joy and merriment to all. Alas you will find none of that in this game!

All kidding aside it is a fairly playable title for the Game Boy with half decent animation and plenty of weapons to rip apart the dinosaurs. If you can find them around being buck-shotted to death. Want my advice? Use the bloody knife.”

It ranges at about $10 and might have to be sought on the internet because you won’t find it at any thrift stores or charity shops. According to the Wikipedia, it has little to no reception. Let’s give this game something!
