Racecars, lasers, aeroplanes

In 1989 I got the original Ducktales Nintendo game on a Wednesday night and beat it on Friday.

This morning The HD remake, Ducktales Remastered was released for the Xbox 360. I got it at 7:30 a.m. and had it beaten by 12:30 p.m. On hard mode.

The reviews have been mixed, from people like me who love it to whiners who said it's too difficult. The biggest complaint from the Negative Nancies is that if you use up your extra lives you have to restart the last level.

Well folks, if that's a problem then choose the "easy" difficulty level which includes infinite lives and no level restarts. I can't say I understand their complaint, as no one forced them to choose the "hard" option.

With the addition of two new levels, expanded boss battles, the reunion of the original voice cast, skipable cutscenes, an improved control system and Jake Kaufman's faithful revamp of the best video game song ever made this remake is better than the original.
