What is The Guardian Legend?
The Guardian Legend is an NES that came out in 1988, near the middle of the NESs lifespan, and is actually a sequel to a MSX game Guardic. Despite its release date, TGL manages to do a lot of interesting things with the NES' limited hardware. It features two distinct gameplay modes, doles out a variety of different weapons, and manages to be reasonably long. I find this to be a pretty impressive and sometimes overlooked game from the NES era.
Videos will be posted on Sunday and Thursdays. If youd like to see something that I didnt point out or go over, feel free to ask. Bonus content will likely consist of a stream of the game's special mode somewhere near the end of the thread.
