Closure

I got a turbo grafx 16 when I was ten. It came with Keith Courage in Alpha Zones, and my parents also got Blazing Lazers. I played a lot as a kid, not so much in high school, and a bit in college on the occasional nostalgia trip. Along the way I won Keith Courage (“Stay tuned for Keith Courage 2!”), but Blazing Lazers remained unbeaten. It has only nine levels, and by today’s standards is a short game, but level nine was impossibly difficult, and so at most I saw the end boss a single time. Henry was the only other person I ever knew who also had the game. He as well had never beat it. Tonight, he came over to visit and decided to sit down for a short game of Blazing Lazers.
