Goonies II on Nes. An exhausting back and forth romp.

Looks super fun. Apparently it's hitting the Switch at some point, so I'll probably grab it. Seems like the release date is still TBA tho

Hollow Knight. Rayman meets Dark Souls equals not much else than playing for the past few days.

baron samedi, yeah, you should get it for sure! a very addictive game. i like the graphical style, too. it's kind of goofy but also weirdly creepy at the same time. the sound and music are awesome as well. for me it was worth the asking price on steam already. i just finished the first episode in about 2 hours and i will probably replay it several times. i already started going through it again on a harder difficulty.

garth marenghi, i almost bought hollow night as well since it was on sale, but ultimately skipped it spontaneously because i've been wanting to play dusk for so long and was like fuck it. i plan to get it bundled up with all the dlc at some point in the future.

Just beat Xeodrifter, pretty short at 4 to 6 hours. Got a bit frustrating in a few spots but it's a pretty easy game overall. Simplistic metroidvania. They really could have made it more intuitive, you have no direction of which of the 4 levels to begin at and I finished the game missing several health and gun upgrades.

Stayed at my mom's house last weekend and dug out my SMS and Genesis.

Played Black Belt, The Ninja, and Kenseiden on the SMS (only beat Kenseiden).

Played Mystic Defender, Revenge of Shinobi, Strider, Gunstar Heroes, and El Viento on Genesis. Didn't beat Strider. Forgot El Viento even existed.

Nice! Haven't tried Kenseiden or El Viento. Have you played Dahna Megami Tanjou?


A friend had a repro of the unreleased Stone Protectors Genesis game, which was pretty good. So was Batman Returns for NES. He also mentioned of a rom hack that polishes the gameplay a lot for Return of the Joker. Never had the urge to buy it due to the laggy controls. The famicom cart is pretty amazing, though.

I still havenít beaten the first Crash Bandicoot game or Breath of the Wild. I think I suck at video games more than skating.

Kenseiden is maybe my favorite SMS game. It's sometimes referred to as a "Samurai Castlevania" type game. Slightly faster action though.

It has held up really well although I imagine it might be daunting to newcomers because of a lack of continues (there might be a code) and the floating jumping mechanic takes some getting used to. Also, the 2nd boss is one of the hardest (weird hit detection) and eventually I remembered that if I didn't beat him first try with sword power up and life refill item it was probably best to restart.


El Viento has really neat anime presentation (it was by the same people who made the Exile games) that was ahead of its time. The in-game graphics are kind of terrible although the action is very fluid. It's an unusual one.


Never saw that game you posted before. It reminds me of Jewel Master for some reason - maybe it's the level of polish or the way your character moves.

I just beat Captain Toad: Treasure Hunter. Donít even get it if you have a kid. The multiplayer mode is stupid and itís pretty short, even for a puzzle game.

Finally getting around to MGSV. On the whole it's really disappointing and monotonous although it manages to be enjoyable here and there.

I guess they should have let the series end with 4.

Dude I love mgsv, and I am a huge fan of the whole saga. It's only as monotonous as you make it with so many different weapons and gadgets. A lot of people hated the ending but I actually applauded in my chair. What ever that's how it goes.

But I just upgraded my PC and went back to the Witcher 3 and damn that game is amazing. It looks so good maxed out.

The gameplay is great (although I preferred it when the realism was dialed back and I could carry a gun store on my back) but the missions and the environments are repetitive. The Big Shell stuff is boring. The "open world" aspect just means more riding around before you get somewhere and most of the bases are so open your strategies can be interchangeable. I liked how the individual areas of the earlier games were like mini puzzles.

I've only just picked up Quiet and gotten to Africa but the lack of story thus far is a disappointment (and I've already figured out the big twist, at least partially). Snake's lack of character makes the whole story less immersive and consequential.


Did Ground Zeroes recap the PSP games in some way? Because it's crazy how much the events of those games that a relatively tiny number of people played seem to factor into MGSV's plot. I've only read synopses of those and have no idea about half the stuff that gets mentioned (and I'd consider myself more than a casual fan).

Yeah gz picked up where Peace Walker left off, they are directly tied but gz doesn't go over the Peace Walker plot again.

I didn't mind the driving, some games loading screens are longer than what it takes to drive to a mission. Fast travel is a thing, too so it's really not that bad.

I never saw it as a twist because they spill the beans in literally the opening scene, but I still liked the ending because it does some interesting 4th wall stuff. It's also cool how it basically goes right into the next game.

There's as much story here as in other mg games, it's just spread out over more gameplay. I dove into every cassette tape, mission opening/closing dialog, and npc chatter. Theres quite a bit going on, it's just not as spoon-fed as the other games.  If you watch full cutscene vids on YouTube of each mgs game, v is about average in length.
