Seeing Death Stranding and FFVII is making me consider buying a PS4....or wait for PS5..hnnng

Buy the console when the game is out or better yet, get the limited edition playstation that is bundled with the game you're waiting for. Unless you're willing to get spoiled and wait for PS5.

Wait it out, those are timed exclusives.

Going through Borderlands 2 again. This time I bought the recently release DLC: Commander Lilith and the Fight for Sanctuary. This DLC is said to be the follow-up that will lead into Borderlands 3. Interesting how Borderlands 2 is a decade old and gearbox is still releasing DLC for it.

My wife and I are playing Borderlands 2 on and off...just whenever we have time for it, really. She carried me through the first game (she was the siren, I unfortunately chose the berserker), and now it's the other way around on 2 (she's siren and I'm assassin). I think my favorite part of this game so far is the shitty song that you play in Moxxi's bar on one of the sidequests.  ;D Just the way the singer sputters and rambles while he's crooning is hilarious.

Also played through Doom II for the bazillionth time recently. Sooooo hyped for Doom Eternal...gonna be a long wait for that one. Then played Bloodstained and now the CV Collection.

Kinda want to play some Build Engine shooters at the moment. Like the original Shadow Warrior. Or Blood again...that one was amazing.

I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

Thinking about another go through of Trials of Mana (I am forced to play the extracted ROM, don't have any console is on, save for the SNES, and the Japanese version, which I DO plan to get within a year or so). I liked my time with the fan translated ROM last time, really is a beautiful game.


I do have Final Fantasy Adventure, and the Japanese version of Secret of Mana in the collection, and Legend of Mana for the PS1 is just too damned pricey these days, but Seiken Densetsu 3 can still be gotten, often times boxed, at still a fair price.

Ion Maiden.


I've been playing FF9. It's completely new to me and thanks to the Moguri Mod, It's gotten quite a modern update (Widescreen and up-scaled backgrounds), I'm really enjoying this one and finally completing the Holy Trinity of PSX Final Fantasy.

Maybe give Dawn of Mana a shot, a little slower, but still amazing.

I've been playing Red Dead Redemption 2, Soul Calibur 6, RE2 (Remake), Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, Castlevania Anniversary Collection and most importantly Devil May Cry 5 =D
I curse my stars in bitter grief and woe, That made my love so high and me so low.

Playing the Contra Collection. Just went through 6 loops of NES Contra. Didn't realize that each loop throws more regular enemis at you and the bosses take more hits. And somewhere along the line I stopped getting bonus lives from points! Yikes. There's some guy on Gamefaqs who's done 59 loops!

Also been getting my ass handed to me by Hard Corps. I forgot so many boss patterns, ugh. Went for the monkey ending for now.

Beat Bloodstained Ritual of the Night NG Nightmare mode, and patiently waiting for the unlock of Mighty Gunvolt Burst Steam version. Probably won't touch Bloodstained again until they pull out full-scale major updates.

Mighty Gunvolt Burst is an awesome game but I found the Steam achievements bloody difficult to complete. Maybe even harder than those in Azure Striker Gunvolt 1 Steam version. I found I need a turbo controller in order to gather the burst combo nonsense.

Picked Outland and it was a disappointing experience in general, I won't purchase game product from unheard company anymore

Metroid Prime Trilogy, except it has KB+M FPS controls (Here in action), It plays exceptionally well and I hope the Trilogy gets ported to the switch with a modern control scheme, maybe Prime 4 can bring some popularity towards FPS Metroidvanias or even 3D Metroidvanias in  general.

Next one's a treat; Ion Maiden Fury, Build Engine brought back from the grave to deliver a true throwback FPS, Now it's done and Controller support/Console ports are in the future.
The sheer detail and adrenaline pumping action is something to behold.

Monster Boy is something I've recently completed, Amazing title and I hope it gets more traction, has some of the best music this year.

(Anyone playing No Man's Sky in it's current state? Is it worth it?)

I recently bought the Contra collection for the Switch. It's a nice collection! And I'm also glad the artist for many of Konami's games was able to be included in the interview section of the book. He's been incognito long enough and deserves the credit he is long over due for. Although now that I think about it Contra 4 should have been included in this collection too. That game deserves a big screen adaption.

Also finished this one too. While the game was good the difficulty in terms of the killer stage puzzles and some enemies felt a little too imbalanced and too numerous. So much so you felt like you couldn't catch a break. And going back to collect stuff I missed certainly wasn't something I looked forward to doing. The game was fine -until the Volcano stage rolled around- and then things became difficult way too quickly. There was no gradual progression. Almost as if someone told you to survive and then promptly pushed you off a high cliff :P

If they do another title of this series hopefully they'll learn to take things in stride with the players and balance out the difficulty just a bit.

UPDATE!

Borderlands 3. F@#K! YES! I'm having a blast with this game. I almost never took a break from it all day cause I was enjoying it so much. This game is what the Pre-Sequel could have been if it was not handled by 2K Australia. That company simply did not get the kind of humour that was expected of borderlands fans. Instead they made fun of their own accents. That, and it was much shorter then Borderlands 2. add on top of those issues the enemy EXP was very imbalanced making it very tedious to level up and you couldn't level up quick enough, not even at the final area. The 'Tails' game brought back the humour (thank god) but it wasn't a first person shoot'em up game. Now we got both back for this title.

FINALLY gathered last few steam achievements of Mighty Gunvolt Burst. Then I was trying to run Luminous Avenger iX on my laptop but it just failed to boot. Damn modern gaming for forcing someone to buy/build an all-new computer...

EDIT: It's a problem with the game's initial boot up and can be easily fixed by inserting the .ini config file from others. Now it runs perfectly fine except for the final boss who gives me some random frame drops.


Luminous Avenger iX is an amazing game and will be the major smash hit in early October though Acura/Copen doesn't have double jumps and his air dash just won't work when encountered dangerous thunder attacks from final boss. The content and game design seems like it's meant to make someone finish all the achievements and main content in one day and that day could be their most enjoyable day ever.

EDIT: Hell...never know that score attack mode would be so damn merciless... it's essentially level one cap mode (think level one cap mode in PoR but without enhance skills or stock potions) which I've heard that it unlocks the last piece of Cross symbol at title screen - I know challenges are good but holy damn please show us some mercy

If you tell me Luminous Avenger iX is not-so button mashy or repetitive, I'll bite (the promo material REALLY doesn't help).

Oh boy, Breath of The Wild. I was NOT prepared and STILL have sunken more time than any other game at this point. Sure the game has flaws but damn it does such a great job making nearly every accomplishment satisfying, Run in any random direction and find yourself doing something, The open world itself is just so well crafted and as truly an experience of freedom. Flaws and all it totally lives up to it's hype. BotW2 has me quite afraid because time is more limited as an adult (and I can easily see myself pour more weeks worth into the first game itself).

It's design has inspired me, but I've learned from the past, so no guarantees until something tangible comes into play.

Currently ran into blazing hot discussion regarding Mega Man X6 Tweak patcher in other forums, will provide them modified title screens if I had such spare time or skills acediez explained to me how the title screen works and I doubt the modify process would be too complicated.  Test versions after 2.0 are enough to make it a totally separate game, really looking forward to its formal release at romhacking.net.

Now I'm on a quest of hunting those modern metroidvanias I ignored purposely after the launch of Mighty Gunvolt Burst Steam port, also looking forward to release of Gensokyo Night Festival
