Been playing the crap out of Streets of Rage 4 lately. Lots of fun so far! Been playing a lot with Blaze and Adam, especially. Adam is a beast in this one. Axel seems pretty slow, which is disappointing. Cherry is a pretty decent new character. I don't like Floyd that much, but that could be because I really prefer faster characters in beat-em-ups.

Going for the platinum trophy on this one. I just need to clear any stage on any difficulty without getting hit (and getting thrown by a Signal but landing on your feet apparently counts as "getting hit,"...dammit  >:( ), hit a co-op partner, and get a cumulative score of 500,000.

Playing Mania now. Although there are a lot of bosses who have hyper armor on certain attacks, the game seems easier than the previous ones. It's pretty forgiving with how it can allow you to regain your health from using specials by attacking and not getting hit (kind of like Bloodborne, but without the time window). It throws more enemies at you for sure, but you don't have any absurdly crazy fights, like taking on three Jets (who aren't in the game at all, thank god) and Zamza at the same time, or things like that.

I wasn't sure what to expect out of this game, but it's pretty awesome. Definitely a pleasant surprise with how this turned out.

(Also, the Hunter family really needs to stop sending kids out in the streets to fight.  :P )
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

So I’ve taken a hiatus from Link’s (RE)Awakening to play Bloodstained ROTN. I’m currently at about 52% at L29 and
(click to show/hide)

So I’ve now got the better Hikari(16 bit coin version) and I’m on my way to go fight another boss.

Shantae and the Seven Sirens. Never even knew this game existed until I came across it on the Nintendo store. The game goes back to the Metroidvania formula that we saw in Pirate's Curse rather then the play-style that was in Half-Genie Hero. So far I'm enjoying it although personally I wish they'd go back to the art style that was featured in the first Shantae game as I rather liked it.

I played a lot of Torchlight 2 over the weekend. a.k.a. We Didn't Like Diablo 3 So We Remade Diablo 2

I went from Level 3 to like Level 40 in the span of a couple of days.

Been playing a lot of new board games with the pandemic going on, so far I have played:

Vindication -- Adventurish sort of game
Thunderstone Quest -- Competitive monster bash
Stonebound Saga : PVP with mechanics similar to Final Fantasy Tactics
The Silver River : Space-based competitive 4X game similar to Age of Empires, etc...My favorite of the new games I've broken open this month.


Oh yeah, and Streets of Rage 4.

A board game I'd highly recommend is Fireball Island. I used to have one but I didn't know just how rare and it would become. Should've held onto my mine  >:(

Actually, they remade Fireball Island and made a few expansions for it a couple of years ago, so you are in luck--it isn't too pricey either by modern board game standards.

I almost ended up getting it, but didn't pull the trigger. Seemed to be rather shallow once one got over the "gimmick" of it from what I have seen, but I actually almost bought it again the other day for my kids...so I might still end up with it some day.

Wow! They really did expand the game. Although it looks a little too glossy for my tastes. The original colouration and textures were fine, all they needed to do was expand upon those. But everything else looks amazing  :)

Playing more Doom II megawads again. Alien Vendetta, Going Down, and now Eviternity. I think after Eviternity, I'll need to take a break from Doom, and start on Sekiro. Still need to buy Nioh 2, but I also have to sit down and prepare to lose, like, 3 months of my life for that one, if it's anything like the original.

A while ago I finished Bloodstained ROTN (ps4 version) and started a hard mode play through with Zangetsu, but haven’t picked it back up.

Since then I’ve finished Link’s (Re)Awakening on Hero Mode with the whole 3 hearts only, no upgrades (stayed with the green tunic after the Color Dungeon) etc.

Lately I’ve picked up Ori & The Blind Forest for PS4. I wasn’t keen on the combat itself, but the game as a whole is great so far. Its art is a bit too dark fantasy/ Trine-like for me, but the game itself is very well crafted.

I’m waiting to see when Curse of the Moon 2 goes on special for a pickup on Switch.

Finally. Finally finished for the first time today, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel  :P

Aurelia Hammerlock was definitely the best choice character for a reasonably easy play-through. Her ice ability is s~o useful against swarms of enemies.

jumped into silent hill 3 for the first time and marathon'd it all the way to the end.
now that's is a freaking game.
looking forward to unlocking the new game + stuff, but the "possessed" ending seems like it could take some work to get.

Just finished up Ganbare Goemon 4's English translation, now that I can understand what to do, the game is actually playable.
