Picked up Aliens: Fireteam Elite today and watched my bro take a stab at it. He's only done the first mission so far but it does look neat. It's nice that you can make a custom player character although the options are a tad lacking in terms of facial design. I'll give the game a try some time after he's done.

Final Fantasy XIII and Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana. I'm all caught up on Splinter Cell, so that's one gaming goal met this year. Might shoot for Yakuza and Dragon Quest in 2022.

Also, Kick Master for the NES. I'd love a 2.5D modern remake of it.

After hearing about Axiom Verge 2 I downloaded it for my Switch. It's just as bizarre as it's predecessor was, but for different reasons. These guys know how to put you into a world you've never been.

I literally JUST started streaming Dead Space on Twitch last night, and I've also been doing Mirror of Fate HD there this month as well.
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.

Been playing a bit of Megaman Zero collection. I played the first two a lot back when they were new, but I never played any of the games after 2. I've heard more recently that 3 is the best in the series, so I'm looking forward to giving that a try after I finish replaying 1.

I've been playing Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu with my daughter. We've been having a lot of fun with it. Highly recommend it if you have a kid and want a fun and easy co-op adventure.

Playing my second run of Resident Evil Village just to see how far I can upgrade the best guns. I think I like this one better than RE7. The plot is nonsensical, but the gameplay is fun.

Just bought a Retron 5 so that I can enjoy upscaled graphics on a lot of my retro stuff. Played around with Batman and Robin for the Genesis. I suck at this game, but the graphical effects are absolutely amazing, especially on the Mad Hatter boss fight (which I had to level select to see). Absolutely LOVE the music. I gotta get better at this game.
It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

I played Haunted Castle for the first time last night. I couldn't get past the medusa, even with infinite tokens.

Unfortunately, I don't have much positive to say, but I'm going to keep pushing through it until I reach the end.

Medusa is actually really easy if you have the bomb sub-weapon. All you really need to do is toss as many bombs at her as you can. Dodging the incoming fire and bats are somewhat impossible so just spam that sub-weapon until she dies.

Tried a lot of Touhou 17.5. Man it's bad. B.A.D.

The biggest problem is the awful controls. You cannot pull out one specific move as you want, they're too random, and you missed one step and bang. Ruined the current life. There's no regular jump, only an upward dash equals to high jump, binded along with forward jumps. That freakin' sucks. Not to mention several "spell cards" seems to be designed around regular jump in mind but there's simply no such bloody move in your moveset! What's wrong with the designers??

The next problem - It's a sort of boss rush-only game, while it looks like a 2D platformer there's no mid-stage minor enemies, if you treated it as fighting game instead there's no two-player VS mode like previous "official" offspring Touhou games focusing on one-on-one fighting. The result is a dumb combination that's so boring, and left only a bad taste afterwards. Obviously the game is either rushed or unfinished. The game's genre should be ironed out in the game's planning process. But in its current shape it clearly isn't.
I wonder what happens? The game has been delayed for roughly two years? Not worth it at all.
They really shouldn't release a game that bad in its current state, it's a disgrace to the already obscure Touhou community as a whole. If they ran out idea on 2D platforming, they really should outsource it to some one else who do care about 2D genre instead of creating this mess.


What will happen if in a universe Inti Creates and Touhou Project joining hands? Touhou Project never ran out of waifus while Inti Creates is famous for its love of imoutou suffering. A popular and actually good 2D platforming game could happen in that alternate universe?

Just finished Metroid Dread...pretty awesome. Really liked the boss fights. Had to go back and collect everything before going to the final area. I had to google some of the speed booster puzzles, though. Just a handful of speed boosting stuff that I had no idea you could do.

I need to finish Speed of Doom next. I think I've done a huge chunk of the most notable Doom II based megawads, and I haven't gotten sick of it yet, lol.
