Batman (NES) Stage 1!

I've been hooked on old MMO games and I totally should not be spending so much time with them. They're just horrible horrible time sinks.  I'll go into depth with Ultima Online and Final Fantasy XI sometime when I have a clear head but just know I have a good reason I'm playing these versus other recent games such as World of Warcraft or Rift or Lord of the Rings Online or ....etc.

Today I've got THE GODDAMN BATMAN! I will admit that I've never even beaten one level of this game, but I have played level 1 many times! This music is the sole reason I picked it up and tried it out.  The stage 1 music just builds up so nicely with a nice drum intro, works into a catchy melody, starts to get intense as the song closes, and finishes up with great energy! It really added a great atmosphere for me as I feel like THE GODDAMN BATMAN punching flame thrower dudes, floor cleaning robots, and random dude that runs into you! And oh man the jumping controls are spot on with it's great wall jumps.  I'm completely reminded of how well Super Meat Boy did its wall jumps and Batman is definitely one of those games that has awesome wall jumping experience unlike SOME games *coughMetroidcough*.

Enjoy! Tell me if you enjoyed this song!

  21. Nooo, stay away from MMOs. I can't play online without my bros, so I'm happy they are not willing to pay a monthly subscription.

    And I listened that Batman song, long time ago, I wonder where? maybe in AVGN? Sounds weird but I think he reviewed the game once, not because it was bad, I think he making a comparison with an actual bad batman game.
