Herzog Zwei

This past week I’ve had some difficulty continuing on Adventure 2012, so I decided to play a game from my Games List as a diversion and to hopefully get me back on track. The game I chose was 1989’s Herzog Zwei on the Sega Genesis…

Six straight hours later, I finished the game using “Ludwig”, the red character. I ate breakfast, drank coffee, and then played Herzog Zwei for the rest of the day. I didn’t even use the bathroom. I did eat a small snack which JC heated up for me.

Even when I was a kid, I never played games for six hours straight, and I never played through Herzog Zwei in one sitting. I was dazed. My bottom was numb. The funny thing is, having achieved my personal requirement for crossing the game off the list, I want to beat the game again, this time with “Balsaga/Wahrsager”, the blue character.

I had a lot of fun blowing things up, commanding troops, and listening to the bassy soundtrack. I guess you could say I got lost in the game. Still, I don’t know if I’ll do the straight-through thing again. If I do, I’ll embed the video below the “Ludwig” one. 🙂
