Ready your pipes, it’s time for more Goemania, as I slowly continue to climb the mountain of conflict that is Goemon.

Sew’s Goemania! – Part 2

07/29/22 Sew’s Goemania!

I have decided to play all the games in the Ganbare Goemon series.. reasoning unclear. Not sure how much I’ll have to say about each, so these are less ‘reviews‘, and more ‘the impressions a video game leaves as it washes over me‘. I’ll probably have more to say about some than others, but in any case I’m still treating this whole thing like a big ‘ole event.

All the hard work is done already; identify your enemies, then attack. There are currently ~34 games in the series, including spin-offs, and I’ll be playing what I’m able to, 25 of ’em. Since this is quite a large undertaking, I’ll be splitting this journey up into 5 parts. Today we’ll cover:

  1. Mr. Goemon (1986) (ARCADE)
  2. Ganbare Goemon! Karakuri Dōchū (1986) (NES)
  3. Ganbare Goemon 2 (1989) (NES)
  4. Ganbare Goemon Gaiden: Kieta Ōgon Kiseru (1990) (NES)
  5. Ganbare Goemon: Yukihime Kyuushutsu Emaki (1991) (SNES)

God, it’s already time again. Time to laugh, cry, and just.. relax. Everything will be okay, we’re here now. We’ve got this.

I feel like I had more to say. This sorta snuck up on me. Same rules as every year, new page every day of October just a minute past midnight CST. Enjoy!

03/25/21 KD:M – Halloween Ringtail Vixen

Here are some photos of one of the more recent models I did, The Halloween Ringtail Vixen. Normal process is removing all the pieces from the runner (which I will often just call a ‘sprue’ but would like the record to show that I’m not ignorant of it’s more accurate name, just intentionally careless), dry fitting and cleaning the pieces, removing the mold lines, then gluing things, usually from base up. It’s kind of therapeutic like building a lego contraption, except without the directions to follow.

The longest part of assembly for me is always the cleaning of the mold lines, but goddamn they are so distracting even on an unpainted model. I made sure to snap a good photo of the one on her leg here.

She isn’t actually glued to her base yet though, she’s just stuck there with some Loctite Tak. It seems like my plan was/is to pin her and paint her separately from the base. Buuuut she’s pretty far back in the infinite queue.
