Just played The Looker. Cute shitpost. Wasn't expecting a Calvino joke so 10/10.

 
 
 

Haiku, The Robot is a good time so far (a couple hours in now). The art is really great although one HUD element isn't the same resolution as the rest of the game and it drives me crazy (the heat meter). Slimey you'd like this, it's very Hollow Knight.

 
 
 

I finished Hylics 2 yesterday, which was more interesting as an artwork than as a game, just like the first title. And what was supposed to be a two hour romp has turned into 6+ with Belle Boomerang as I sort of regret playing it in "retro" mode. Too hard

 
 
 

First day off in months and I'm wasting no time. Just did the DLC for the Disney games collection - Aladdin (SNES) was great but I still think I prefer the GEN version. It was a great platformer for sure. Jungle Book (GEN) was awful though. Not my jam.

 
 
 

I'm still alive, I promise. Too tired to do much gaming but I went back and got the last three achievements in the CV Advance collection (replaying each game as the other characters). Very fun to power through as an OP god from the start. Miss you all. <3


 
 
 

Well, I don't own the house yet but I live in it! And so far it's done the thing houses do - throw everything at me all at once. Plumbing issues are fun. To unwind I grabbed Wreckfest, which is a noun I'd use to describe a fun racing game and this house.

 
 
 

I survived the move and thanks to mail forwarding this little gem was waiting for me at the new house. We're not done (it didn't all fit in the truck so one last drive back...) but at least this thing exists and it gives me all the joy I need to press on.


 
 
 

First major game(s) completed on the Steam Deck are all 7 Commander Keen Episodes (minus the GBC Game, which I'll get to when I get my Analogue Pocket later this year). Not the greatest games unfortunately, but they had their charm. Duke 1 and 2 next?!

 
 
 

I just spent three hours figuring out how to launch a DOSBox game on the Steam Deck, and now that I've got it working just right... I have no desire to play it (right now anyway). This is the way.

 
 
 

It's Tuesday. Blasted this classic on the drive in to work this morning.



 
 
 

The Steam Deck remains an absolute joy. Playing some random stuff - Finished Ep.1 of Commander Keen for some reason. A bit of Dark Souls Remastered as well. Also addicted but hate-playing Gonner. Not really enjoying it but I have to "try" which is... fun?

 
 
 

I'm in love with this thing. Where do I even start?!


 
 
 

Oh shit that Steam Deck order confirmation just hit. Here we go! I hope it gets to my current address because I won't live there in four weeks! GULP.

 
 
 

Fully completing Kirby had me remembering that I never one-hundo'd Yoshi's Crafted World. So I did that! And it was extremely tedious and the boss challenges are actually quite difficult but whatever, it's done! Did anyone else go this far with it?

 
 
 

Forgotten Land 100% done and now to brush up on Kirby L O R E


 
 
 

30 hours later and I finally made it through the tutorial area in Elden Ring. Pheww!

 
 
 

Woke up this morning and chose chaos. Played Dark Souls Remastered for a bit (I've never played this version), but I forgot how mechanically simple this game is. Just backstabbing everything with a two-handed dagger. Like... everything.

 
 
 

Almost got Godrick on my first try... shit. Sorry to contribute to the Elden Ring qpost overload, but this is an Elden Dangus stream now.

 
 
 
 

10 hours in still rocking the starting equipment (the swords are each +3 though). Damn this castle is a labyrinth! Should I try those bleed claws in the left hand?!?!


 
 
 

I loved it so much I went back and played it again (NG+) and got the last of the achievements. I NEVER play a game twice in a row but TUNIC deserved it! So much fun the second time when you can break the thing and go wherever you want. GOTY easy (so far).


 
 
 

For anyone interested in the output of the folks that made the Anodyne games, here's their next work, releasing in a couple weeks. Anodyne 2 is a recent favorite of mine.



 
 
 

Tunic has me hooked. Making charts, writing down input hints, combing the manual and just generally unraveling the mysteries is a rare joy not felt since gaming as a kid or playing newer games like FEZ. Almost done I think.


 
 
 

Just finished EarthBound Beginnings! This means I can FINALLY play EarthBound and actually get more than 30 minutes into it for the first time in my life. Beginnings was definitely a grind, but it was still a really memorable, strange experience.

 
 
 

Sable is done. What a wonderful game brought down by a severe lack of polish. It still gets to go in the favorites list, but I wish it hadn't been so rough around the edges technically. Bro got me Elden Ring for my birthday... maybe I dive in to that now?
