Crow's Nest: We Finally Beat Xardion!

Xardion for the SNES isn't exactly a hidden gem, but this unique Action RPG definitely gives back what you put in.

Xardion isn't exactly a classic of the SNES, but 8-Bit Alchemy & Parasite Steve recently discussed it as one of the games their mother used to love and was actually able to beat. Well, thanks to much perseverance and level grinding, when if comes to this bizarre Run and Gun RPG Platformer, the boys are now (almost) as cool as she was!

This game is weird in a dozen ways, but if you can stick with it long enough and eventually get into the strange rhythm... it's actually a pretty rewarding experience.
