the 400th annual Feel Good Games

The Lobo ParaMilitary Christmas Special, embedded above, is a surprisingly well done student film about a very disgusting character. Lobo is a crude, juvenile figure, initially conceived by Keith Giffen to be a parody of Marvel Comics’ Wolverine (who wins the Stresslines Worst Comic Character Fueled By Dew award every year without fail). I don’t really have a problem with Lobo because he doesn’t demand to be taken serious. He commits genocide for fun, uses nonsensical expletives (such as bastich) and is very protective of endangered space dolphins. He is a symbol of the ridiculous excess of 90s comics. It’s almost magical.

This afternoon I was reading old scans of Nintendo Power from Retromags (because that’s what nerds do when they’re drunk in the daytime). I was surprised when I stumbled across a Super Nintendo game I wasn’t familiar with: Lobo. Lobo the fighting game, staring Lobo the character! The reason I had never heard of it is because it was never released. Not surprising, after reading the full feature.

Here are high resolution scans of the entire feature: one, two, three, four and five. It’s worth reading for anyone who played fighting games in the 90s, as the preview has a moves list that’s almost identical to Street Fighter II. There’s something telling when a six page spread is filled with controller commands instead of gameplay impressions. No wonder this never made it onto store shelves.

But wait, there’s more! After some extensive detective work (a single google search), I uncovered a ROM of the Sega Genesis version of the game. Spoiler: it’s most certainly a prototype, and you’re life will be no different if you choose not to play it.

 

Every good cookie dough starts with alcohol

Gourmet Magazine has compiled over sixty years worth of cookie recipes and put them online. It’s crazy to think that some of these were popular when my grandparents were children. My favorite is the Moravian White Christmas Cookie, just for the retro factor. I imagine that most recipes conceived before 1965 will probably kill you, just due to authenticity.

 

This Was Going To Be Our Year

A cartoon ad break from 1991. I’m not sure why someone decided to capture this and upload it to YouTube, but I’m glad they did. That Mega Man 3 commercial is serious business.

 

Bionic Commando Lunchbox

Only available to those who preorder the inevitably terrible next-gen revival. I can’t wait for someone to arrange some bento art inside this that depicts Hitler’s head exploding.
