Finally started playing Dusk, which is rocking my bum. This, Ion Fury, and Project Warlock are some great throwback FPS games, and I'm looking forward to playing Amid Evil after this.

It's funny to think that back in the early aughts, I thought I had gotten bored with FPS (Half-Life being one of the last ones I enjoyed), but it wasn't so much that FPS got boring, just that FPS game design changed. I'm glad to see this resurgence of old school game design, back when it was about running around at lightning speed and gibbing everything in sight.
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

Just played through Streets of Rage 4 Arcade Mode on Mania difficulty:



Just trying to beat my best score, and got a Perfect on level 3! First time it's happened on any Mania level for me! It was my best score overall (all stages), but still not enough for an S rank. Ugh.
It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

The original Borderlands. Both me and my bro a really want to kick Crawmerax's @$$, so we're doing second play-through to get leveled-up and get even better weapons to at least stand a chance against that stupid crabby. And yes, we know about the ledge trick. The only issue is getting it all down pat in order to work in our favor.

Oh, man, good luck to you. My wife and I tried that fight a few times and just couldn't kill him. I don't think we ever finished the Circle of Duty missions, either.  :-[

I've seen online videos of people 1 Vs 1 Crawmerax so it is possible. It just requires a few run-throughs of the main game and the DLCs. Crawmerax when you first meet up with him is around level 61. My bro has managed to get up to level 51 or slightly higher. He's also gotten his hands on some pearl class weapons but has yet to get his hands on the infamous pearlecent ones. We're pretty sure those can only be dropped by Crawmerax. Or maybe we'll get lucky and use the secret loot trick in General Knoxx's armory to acquire them.

-UPDATE!-

I did it. I finally f@#kin' did it! Crawmerax is dead! I can now officially put that notch on my belt.

Playing the new Streets of Rage 4 DLC. Mania+ Mode is crazy! I got to a point where I can comfortably beat Mania with all 5 of the main characters (plus SoR3 Shiva), but Mania+ has kicked my ass. Reminds me of the Mania difficulty of Streets 2. Haven't made it beyond Stage 10 so far. Time to practice.

The new playable Shiva is awesome. I expect him to get patched at some point, because you can plow through most of the game with his blitz jumpkick. Estel and Max are alright, I guess. The survival mode is pretty good, too.

Final Fantasy VI: Divergent Paths
Cool hack for an old fav.

Other than that I've been playing Megaman 1 a lot because I'm redesigning the board game to not suck.
