Just finished Halo 4 which concludes my time with the MCC. I don't have a fugg'n clue what just happened, or why any of it was happening, or why seemingly important story dumps were hidden behind missable collectables. But it's over and I had a blast. <3

 
 
 

Oh this is perdy. Not a fan of the "never digital" nonsense but I couldn't resist an NES inspired... sort of shmup? I don't know exactly how it plays yet but I'll find out soon I guess. Only 9000 of these made huh? Neat.


 
 
 

I don't know why I decided to try this. This is either gonna be like the time I bought Sonic 06 or I just got my hands on a misunderstood gem. Who's to say? All I know is I love Factor 5 and I've never got around to this one.


 
 
 

Just finished the Triple Trouble remake with all emeralds. What an amazing "fangame." Up there with Mania and proof that Sega hasn't really known what it's doing with the franchise for quite a while. It's so good I consider it an official game honestly.

 
 
 

Gajina. There. I said it. I'm living my truth.

 
 
 

All the Halo talk recently got me thinking that I never finished the MCC. I just ran through ODST and it was great! Might as well keep the momentum and do 4 today. Did I mention I love short games? Finishing something in 1-2 sessions is great.

 
 
 

Anyone else give this fan remake of Triple Trouble a shot? I'm a couple levels in and damn this thing is wonderful. Also plays great on the Gabe Gear. 16-bit Sonic is best Sonic.


 
 
 

A couple levels in and this is a nice cozy 6. Here for it. I'll play anything that looks this good.


 
 
 

How come no one warned me that Alien Storm was pretty meh?! Felt like Golden Axe with a different skin and also not as good. Oops... I was supposed to start Vectorman.

 
 
 

Comix Zone, just like Dynamite Headdy, was more interesting conceptually, visually, and thematically than it was enjoyable to play. I'd go so far as to say that it was just plain bad. It's obtuse, way too hard, and your health drains just punching things?


 
 
 

Took a random Genesis detour to play one game I've been meaning to get to for a while - Ristar. It was ok. Dynamite Headdy ended up being the main course though, as I apparently had this as a kid and could never finish it. Amazing game but way too hard.


 
 
 

Just finished the cat game (100% at 6.5 hours but not gonna bother with achievements). What a magical experience. This is what I want from my video games - worlds I can explore from unique perspectives made lovingly real and full of detail. CAT! Play it!


 
 
 
 

New keyboard! Cherry Brown keys. Ready to break this thing in and start shitposting!


 
 
 

Another steamrolled game off the list. This one is an easy one-hundo thankfully. Second time with Klonoa 1 (first time with the "Wii" version), and first time with Klonoa 2. 1 is still a classic, but 2 manages to improve on it in just about every way! <3


 
 
 

Snake Pass is done. What a strange idea for a 3D platformer. At first it felt like QWOP but as a snake, and by the end (100% baby) I was zipping along like nothing. It has major issues (like the awful camera), but ultimately it was a refreshing, fun time.

 
 
 

26 hours later - Hollow Knight finished at 104%. Saw three endings and did a lot. I enjoyed this one by the end, but the early game was a slog and I was pretty close to writing a scathing hot take. I stuck with it and came to enjoy it by the end. <3

 
 
 

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?!
