The game of life, aka nothing.

Awaiting some more Famicom, PS1 Goemon trilogy (they came in a bundle, I already own of them), a PS2 Soul Caliburing experience of the third kind, and some Game Boy titles to arrive off Ebay. I will hit the 1,345 game mark by the time they all arrive.

For sure the Game Boy games I want to play in my Super Game Boy, both Momotaro Dengeki 1, and Momotaro Dengeki 2, and the third PS1 Goemon game, aka Oedo Daikaiten (this one will have one bit that WILL trip me up, getting a pass to leave town, and it's a puzzle with a ghost town that is tricky to know what to do as there is no English FAQ for the game).

Super Mario Wonder does a really good job of recapturing that feeling of playing Mario games as a child. There are so many secrets, and surprises in every level, plus the way that the wonder flower changes every level is really fun.

I give Super Mario Wonder a 9 out of 10.

It's the best sidescrolling Mario game in a long time for sure, if you don't count spinoff games like Yoshi's Woolly World, which is phenomenal. The best since the original New Super Mario Bros., which I love, but that format and subseries got stale real quickly.
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

I've been hopelessly addicted to Spider-man Remastered. It's being murder on my sleep.

GO AWAY PETER PARKER. GOING TO BED AT 8AM IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MY LIFE OBLIGATIONS.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

Opera Boo was one of my favorite Wonder Flower changes. Silly wholesome fun.

Started the Hitman games this year with the very first one from 2000. It's rough by today's standards but I look forward to seeing how the series evolved over time.

I've kinda dabbled in shmups over the years, with Toaplan games being a bit of a soft spot for me lately (thank you Game Sack, lol). But I just got into Battle Bakraid recently, and...holy. shit. Looooove this game. Not sure what's so different about this one, but I  feel like I'm halfway good at it.Maybe because there are no speed power ups? Not sure. But goddamn, this game is so fun.
It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

The Last Faith.
I've been playing The Last Faith lately too.  Normally I hate Dark Souls style games, but this has really grown on me.  It's not nearly as difficult as the actual Souls games, but it thinks it is, and it has a ton of similar mechanics.  It's the pixel art the interested me in the first place, and yet I don't think its pixel art is among the best I've seen.  It's almost like it's so zoomed out you can't see the detail they included.  I do like it though.

Blazed through Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name in time for the release of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, which I'm currently playing. Second best series for me after Castlevania.

Been playing through a lot of Puzzle Figher lately. Got my wife hooked on it, lol. It's become a bit of a Friday staple for me.

Also just beat AB Cop on my racing cabinet. Whatever drugs they were on when they made that game, I want some. So much of that game is hilarious: the shit-eating grin your guy flashes at the screen when you beat a boss, the Dende lookalike you fight at the end, just the concept of a bike cop bashing criminals off the road...all of it is gold.

I want to start Elden Ring or the new Robocop next, but I just haven't made time.

I've been enjoying this lately. Finished my first campaign as Cyclops, going through again as Domino. Really solid expansion, although I do not like the new Side Missions mechanic they added to the Marvel Champions formula... but luckily, you can mostly ignore them.

Also started a campaign with a friend for the previous expansion, Next Evolution. That expansion has also been really good so far.

It's a good time to be an X-Men fan... I'm also rewatching the 90s X-Men show (again) so I can start watching the new X-Men 97 series.
