Welcome to Saturday Reruns, a helpful guide to all of the Defunct Games videos you might have missed over the past seven days. This week brings us Operation Wolf, House of the Dead, old school NES accessories and a peaceful quote from Die Hard Game Fan. Don't miss a single minute of this week's original video programming!
This week we're looking at one of Sega's best light gun games. That's right, it's House of the Dead 2. While not very deep, this arcade shooter's story is memorable for all the wrong reasons. Most of it comes down to the terrible acting job of Goldman. It's hard to believe this was actually read by a human being. See for yourself when you watch the 10 Most Ridiculous Moments in House of the Dead 2.
It's time once again for Simple Thoughts with Die Hard Game Fan, the most relaxing video of the week. It's the only video game article that is guaranteed to heal the soul. Today we're looking at Batman Returns for the Super NES. Now take a deep breath, click the video and relax.
This is a short quiz you can play by yourself. It's simple: I'm going to read you a series of names and it's up to you to tell me if it's an NES Accessory or James Bond Gadget! Think you can handle that? Well, it's not as simple as it sounds. The game isn't going to wait around, it gives you ten seconds to answer and that's it. But don't fret; you'll have plenty of chances. There are no stakes involved, so just have fun trying to figure out which is which. Watch the video when you're ready!
This is INSERT COIN, our brand new video series dedicated to the storied history of the arcade business. Join Robert Johnson as he looks at the best and worst of arcade coin-ops every Thursday. What is he talking about this week? A fake plastic uzi, of course. Find out why Operation Wolf still traumatizes Robert all these years later.
Today marks the end of the third week of Defunct Games' new video season. Next week brings us videos that talk about Rastan III, heavy metal music, Valis III and 2D shooters. If you like what you see, remember to give the videos the thumbs up and subscribe to both DefunctGamer and MightyBrewBrothers.
