A Casual Look At.. Ghosts 'N Goblins (Nintendo)

Welcome to the first in a new series of videos at IMPLANTgames, dubbed, "A Casual Look At". In actuality, I have been doing these on YouTube for quite some time, but as of now, various episodes will also be featured here (Thanks, Kris!). What are these "A Casual Look At" videos, you ask? Well, they are essentially what I like to call "casual reviews."

They involve me turning on a game, playing it, and commenting on top at the same time, unscripted. They feature review elements in that I voice my opinions about the game, but they also tend to feature "let's play" elements where things are slightly spontaneous. They also feature other bits of information I might know about a specific title or series, and they also sometimes include various tips and tricks I use to play well at any given game I might be covering.

So, without further ado, I bring you Ghosts 'n Goblins for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). This is a game that is mostly notorious for its downright ruthless difficulty. Enjoy!



Throughout my life I have been an avid gamer. My early years in particular consisted of growing up with platforms like the Atari VCS/2600, NES, and Master System. Naturally, that led into platforms like the Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, Sega CD/32X, Sega Saturn, Virtual Boy, etc. In the mid to late 1990's, I realized (as a fledgling teenager with little disposable income) that I could obtain those systems that I once thought were completely out of my reach as a child (Neo-Geo, Atari Jaguar, CD-i, 3DO, etc.), and it was from there that I went into a long-term phase of discovering, experiencing and collecting consoles--just about anything I could get my hands on. While I enjoy the occasional modern game, these days time is limited outside of my many hobbies, so I tend to hover towards quick pick-up-and-play types of games, via generations I truly grew up with: Shoot 'em ups, arcade style beat 'em ups, platformers, light gun shooters, and racing games. Not to mention pinball games, something new (to me) that has become a main focal point of interest. In addition to the podcast with Kris, I also create a variety of content on my own YouTube Channel, including video game reviews, Long Plays, and Let's Plays. Many of these you will be able to find here at IMPLANTgames!
