Did my first play-through of Borderlands 3. While the game's enjoyable there seems to be a lot of issues with it, which is a damned shame as so many people were waiting for this one for quite some time. Hopefully when it's re-released later on with all the DLC they'll have the problems ironed out *cross's fingers*

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

MMX6 tweak patcher is getting an update? SWEET! Now it's going to be hell getting that rom again since the 2.0 specification can only be found in obscure means. My time with it was the best time with X6 ever.

Mighty Gunvolt Burst is good, be sure to have an auto-fire button handy though.

Mega Man X6 Tweaks Patcher 2.0 WIP discussion boards


It's currently in WIP state and it seems acediez has something more to be planned for the tweaks patcher (boss attack speed, indestructible boss projectiles, etc.) I contributed title screen graphic data from an obscure PC version and acediez got it implemented in the latest WIP as one of the localization options.

Bought Dragon Quest XI definitive edition for the Switch several days ago. I also bought the online re-releases of Dragon Quest's I, II, and III. They're the Super Famicom versions so the graphics are up to par with other 16-bit RPGs of the time. Minus the off-scaled characters of course. They look kinda odd and clash somewhat with the older graphics. Not sure why they decided that was the way to go... But I've been waiting a while for these three games to be released and not have to worry about messing around with rom glitches.

-UPDATE-

Finally knuckled-down and bought the Castlevania Legacy collection. The controls aren't as bad as I thought they'd be. All I had to do was move my thumb over to the last two buttons and I could easily button-mash from there. SCV4 I had no problems with in terms of controls as the in-game menu allowed me to button-map to my play-style as I would with the original SNES title.
Besides that I also picked up Timespinner. What a strange game. It almost felt like Axiom Verge in terms of the alien environment as I played through it. That was until I went into the past. The graphics are gorgeous (though dark and gritty sometimes) are colourful. It has that fantasy-Sci-Fi look to it while touching upon a little bit of Victorian era-Jules Verne-ish style for some of the areas. I think I'll pick up BlazeChrome sometime soon as it looked awesome as well.

My recent games have been Three Houses (I've played all routes but am waiting for all the dlc to come out before I play it again. I loved it though.), Link's Awakening (Fun fact, Link's Awakening was my first Zelda on the first video game system (original Game Boy) that was officially mine. Yes, I knew what Zelda was and had seen the old games played but Link's Awakening was first one I personally played.), and I'm currently playing Baldur's Gate on Switch (I've played it before, but it's a wonderful game).

I also played Link's awakening too. It still is a good game, though I could no longer exploit my 'tricks of the trade' as the Switch remake has the game's engine completely rebuilt. The graphics kinda reminded me of Donkey Kong Country, but unfortunately are heavily glossed and a bit to cartoony/rubbery for my liking. The only other thing I didn't like is them redoing the character art style so that it matches up with the Oracle of Ages/Seasons games. So the game is no longer the sequel to A Link to the Past as it should be. We can blame the fans for that transgression as the only connection they ever made was at the end of the Oracle games Link left on a ship bound for Hyrule. And the ship didn't even look the same either. Shigeru Miyamoto should've stuck to his guns rather then listen to the fans on that one  :rollseyes:

I loved the original Link's Awakening on Game Boy. Such a melancholy game to experience when you're a kid. It's probably in my top ten.

Playing FFXIII after all this time. I'm in Chapter 11 and it's a lot of grind, cutscene, repeat. It's a beautiful looking game, but feels soulless. I might shelve it to get a FFVII playthrough in before Remake, which looks A-maz-ing.

Just played a custom Doom II wad. It's from the Cabal series; Image of Evil, I think it's called. The whole map looks like a detailed face of the devil. Good times.

I eventually want to make my way to other stuff, like Hell Revealed 1 and 2, Eviternity, etc.

Ganbare Goemon 2 and 3 SFC, they finally have English translation patches, just waiting for the 4th SFC games patch to be released, as well as the Ebisumaru puzzle spinoff's English patch. The latter's patch is done, but will be released with the 4th games patch. It's been 2 days now, since the first SFC Goemon patches dropped on romhacking.net.

Hollow Knight (Steam) - Good Metroidvania but difficulty curve is all wrong

Minoria (GoG) - Might be an okay original title but lost its charm when compared to Momodora series

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 (played on a recently homebrewed old 3DS) Hell I totally missed it when I'm not really that deep into Gunvolt franchise... Damn the world for not putting it on Steam

Breaking into Borderlands 3 once more in order to try out their recent DLC: Mad Moxxie's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot. Hope it's worth it as the humour in B3 seems to be made for a very specific demograph of people. Almost like gearbox intended to play it safe for no real/solid reason.

I'm still knee deep in Doom II WADs.  :-\ Played through Hell Revealed, Eternal Doom, Hell Ground, Perdition's Gate, and Echelon. It just amazes me how many mappers there have been throughout the years. Carmack's idea to have the source code available from the start has been one of the coolest things I've heard of in gaming. So much great stuff came out as a result! And I've barely played a handful of it!

I want to get started on Blasphemous, eventually. Unless I'm still playing WADs when Doom Eternal comes out. Then I'll just switch to that. I'm surprised I haven't tired myself out of all this Doom stuff yet.  :P

Doom stuff here too; I've been working on graphic replacements for Smooth Doom using the Neural Upscale 2x textures as the source, I'm not touching Monsters and Gore (since they are tied to the monsters) but everything else gets the treatment and it... it looks nice.

Magical Drop, because though I own 5 games over 3 consoles for the series, I need 4 more of them to have them all for consoles I own (outside of the Gameboy one, because it seriously lacks Vs CPU mode). Nothing like a fast paced puzzle game that requires quick thinking. You either win quick, lose quick, or in the case of the original game, get into long grueling matches (the Super Famicom one in particular is hard), or in the case of Magical Drop 2 SFC, the sub boss, Father Strength, destroys you within seconds.

And of course, who could forget the bouncy World character. Video from the PS1 port bundled with Magical Drop 3, called Magical Drop 3 Plus Wonderful.
