Old-fashioned superstitions

The least exciting Anatomy of a Game to date is now complete! I know hardly anyone cares about Konami’s The Goonies, for obvious reasons – it’s a fairly forgettable game that was never released in the U.S. except in a limited optional arcade iteration – but I was surprised how much I had to say about it.

I’m still trying to figure out the ending. I thought Steph got snubbed, but after counting the figures on the beach here I think they just mistook her for a little boy. Man, Martha Plimpton can’t catch a break.

I don’t foresee having much blogging time for the next few weeks, but once I get my free time back under control I’ll likely delve into The Goonies II. Just in time for… The Goonies II (the movie).
