Last Resort

Inspired by this post from Starbrain, and right on the heels of liveblogging Bubblegum Crisis, I couldn’t resist piecing together this cityscape image—one of the finest in gaming if you enjoy meticulously illustrated rows and rows of buildings—from SNK’s Last Resort (a beautiful I game which I will be covering in full down the line.) Because of the scrolling and layers, you would never see these three tilemaps lined up like this in the game itself, which is a pity.

Cut my life into pieces
I’ve reached my last resort, suffocation, no breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arms bleeding
Would it be wrong, would it be right
If I took my life tonight, chance are that I might
Mutilation out of sight and I’m contemplating suicide
Cause I’m losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Nothing’s alright, nothing is fine
I’m running and I’m crying
