I've long ago deleted my reviewish blog on Another Code R, but in case someone cares, here's DR: 17h long, few puzzles, last (third) act felt like it was from another game, too many Wiimote gestures (not Zack&Wiki -level, though).


Tomb Raider Anniversary Edition looked better.


I never knew what American Tail was about beyond the some mouse going to presumably the USA on a boat. That the game review part couldn't go deeper to the failure here was a bit disappointing.


Fun fact: I hate people who start their comments with "fun fact" because the comments are either not fun, not facts and/or the person saying this is a smug b*****d.


Got Trine 5 on Switch. Hrm. Shadows popping in cutscenes changing camera angles... should've just got it on PC, I think. (When am I supposed to be able to start allocating skill points anyway?)


Someone somewhere didn't know of a Qix-like game on Megadrive. Can't be bothered to find out which site and who, so here's Volfied.


Tried to bake my first big (1kg) boule of sourdough bread. Not only did it lose its shape (not enough kneading? overproofed?), I also paid the price of having just one oven mitt in the house and burned my hand with the oven sheet. Lessons learned etc.


55+ hours of GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon behind me, I've beaten all difficulty levels up to Devotee (except the easiest). Kinda annoyed that there's room for at least two more difficulty level "flames", and the ending was still the same as on easier levels


Almost two years to the day (12th of August 2021), Chris Carter wrote a preview article on Earthborne Rangers (a boardgame). Today, I received my copy. No, I haven't played it yet.


The new secret game on Evercade VS (maybe EXP, too): a certain roguelike for C64. Someone mentioned it here ages ago, and I had been hoping to get to try it. I like it.


So that was Evercade indie showcase... the indie microcomputer collection (Sword of Ianna, hello!) I'm all for, not so much the others, except possibly Astebros/Asteborg dual cart.


Last day of my vacation, I'm sweating like a pig and I finally clear the final puzzle in Hatsune Miku Logic Paint S (maybe 535 nonograms if I calculated it correctly). No mistakes, no hints, 65 hours. This is what I got.


Got through Cocytus in GFD:UM and the boss on my first go at it, now to see if the Warrior difficulty level adds something new.


Spotted Getsufumaden: Undying Moon in store, and bought it. I've been playing it probably more than I should've been... most weapons unlocked, and I finally dared to go to the ancient battleground (died). Using the second difficulty level, not the easiest


The first two wheat sourdough breads I ever baked have been... mistakes I hid by eating them.


Somehow, I stumbled upon this as it was shown "live". Aftermarket games look pretty amazing.


Time to abandon my current online persona and try again from scratch. If you think you've seen me -- you ain't seen me, right?


Still chugging along on the Evercade train. Been curious about Future Wars ever after seeing a screenshot of it in an 80s magazine in the early 90s, so maybe this time I'll get to play it.


Have a great night. If you still have them.


Decided to check if my Wii U games had updates. As it happened, I wasn't imagining that the disc wallet felt too snug for the discs. The majority of the discs are now broken. Oh well. Bye-bye.


You can buy someone flowers, but they will wilt. If you buy a box of chocolates, they'll carry it on their waist for the rest of their lives.


In case you're interested in Cybernator by other name.


Chris Browne, son of Dik Browne, died earlier this month. And if you don't know who they were, that shows how the times have changed.


ChatGPT is disrupting chess, too.


Sometimes these remakes are just polishing something that rhymes with a bird.
