Holy Moses do I love this game.

Mainly because it’s better than Super Mario Brothers.

But that’s an argument for another day. Today I want to talk about how when I bought this game on holiday we were staying with our cousins, and I convinced them that the C64 was so much like an arcade machine that it even needed twenty cent pieces to let you have a go.

Giana Sisters paid for itself in short order.

About the comic though, I’ve been listening to Pet Sounds on a pretty much constant loop for the past week and I’m still galled at how Mike Love claimed credit for an album he hated and mocked during its production. And he ended up winning. What the hell?

Anyway. The C64 version is the best. It is lovely. It is absolutely lovely and wonderful. I love it to 8 bits and pieces.
