On bodies (Ninja Gaiden II, Nemesis The Warlock)

The dead guys in Ninja Gaiden II hang around. It felt so natural, I didn’t think to mention it when discussing the game, but I feel this is the way it should be. It’s not just the bodies, either – it’s the blood stains and stray body parts as well. It can get a little grisly.

Someone really needs to remake Nemesis The Warlock. In this classic C64 game with an immortal soundtrack (o2 remix here), you built platforms out of the dead bodies of your enemies to get around. It was surreal. I’m not sure I could stomach it with Ninja Gaiden level graphics, mind, but I’d sure like to see it.
