A Satellaview research blog.

I’ve contributed to Hardcore Gaming 101!

Hey, guys, check this page out!

See that little section on the Satellaview Dezaemons? I feel pretty sweeet, now. HG101’s been an awesome site, and contributing to it in a substantial manner feels kind of like an accomplishment!

There hasn’t been much news on the “Satellaview Shooting Trilogy” since I sent that info down, BTW. The 8M Memory Packs have been eluding me lately. 🙁

I hope sooner or later I’ll be able to snag “BS-X Shooting” at least.
