I bought Slay The Spire last night after watching TieTuesday play it on Twitch. It's a fun little card game RPG that plays out like Dominion -- you start with a basic set of attack and skill cards and you get new cards after each enemy encounter. You also find relics like in Binding of Isaac which give permanent upgrades that alter your strategies for that run.

I'm also slowly working through Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, where I finally made it to Part 4's endgame.

i’ve been playing this game every night before bed. i’m getting really good at putting these pipes together.



honestly, pretty cute gameplay. i’m excited to play it on my Game Boy Light soon.

also, i beat Fire Emblem: Heroes of Shadow and Light the other day, a fucking awful game. the worst Fire Emblem game, imo. this made me lose a lot of faith in the DS as a console, tbh.

Oh my goodness! I love this game, I have it on NES. Have you ever heard of Arctic on Famicom? It's somewhat like Pipe Dream in terms of puzzle elements, but with "monorails" (more like marbles). Pipe Dream players are probably the only group of people that enjoy it, it seems.

nope, but it looks like a sick game. love that blob you shared a photo of. i don’t play much Famicom, but perhaps some day i’ll give it a shot.

any recs for Game Boy games though? trying to figure out what i’m going to enjoy on this Game Boy Light i’m getting soon.

Uh, I guess I just made some more progress into Etrian Odyssey 4's post-game dungeon on a test stream via Citra? I've finally gotten past the "wrong tiles teleport you back to entrance lol o__°" room in B2F, party only got wiped out three times, the enemies are still way strong and annoying (petrification, YAY), ugh.

I'll write this save back to my cart, I guess, and then... I'm not sure if I'll continue playing it now. I'm close to just saying "yep, that's good enough" and considering this game finished...

what the ♥♪!?

can i rant more about FE:HSL?

this game basically plays like someone’s awful fan fiction. why is the one turban-sporting fellow the villain now? no one knows. generic plotline about holy dragon wars. yawn. i might not touch another FE game again, maybe not for a long time.

It's not half bad.

Are we talking puzzle recs or general recs? In general, I'd recommend Balloon Kid, Donkey Kong, Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby's Pinball Land, Operation C, any of the Pokemon games (incl. TCG/Pinball), Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, and Wario Blast.

For puzzle specifically, I'd say Bust-a-Move 4, Dr. Mario, Kwirk, Puyo Puyo Sun, Snoopy's Magic Show, Tetris, Yoshi's Cookie, and Zoop.

Jealous of that GB Light, dang. Luckily I have a rose pink GBA SP AGS-101, so I'm good. :p

ooh, yeah maybe more puzzle stuff. i have like 80% of those games you just recommended, lol.

i’m hoping i can get a flash cart sometime soon and play Star Sweep, Trip World and Puyo Puyo.

i was never super into the GBA SP, sadly. something about the form didn’t feel right. i like the GBM way more and maybe some day i can get a modded original GBA. i have a backlight modded GBP, but the batteries wear out really fast, so it’s fairly disappointing. plus there’s no way to turn off the backlight, so i’m increasingly feeling like the GBL is the best way to experience GB games.

also i always just felt awk about playing GB games on GBA.

Slowly working my way through 100%ing Mario Odyssey... (880 moons, I'm not crazy enough to grind coins, I don't think...)

Goodness gracious this game is a complete and utter joy. I'm always surprised by how continually clever it is and how much just, like, pure fun I have playing it. I ain't touched Breath of the Wild yet, but if it's even close to this level of quality then omggggg I'm gonna love it

I'm also kinda sorta half-playing Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice but it's sorta on the backburner while I make my way through Odyssey

I have a frontlit-modded milky pink GBA and it's pretty nice ^^ There's a little dial on the side connected tot he LEDs so you can adjust the strength of the lighting.





I love the GBA so much…
but hey if you're looking for DMG games go pick up Gargoyle's Quest and let's race 👀
The SaGa games are also very good, especially SaGa 2 is one of my favorite RPGs… and of course Ninja Gaiden: Shadow!

I remember playing that on a 32 in 1 multicart. Such a classic game.
(If only I could find where my mom put the cart along with the other Game Boy games.)

Alternating between Pokémon Ultra Moon, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World.

I also have a boatload of other games on my 3DS, plus the entire last 30 years of games ever released, to play.

January's been crazy for me for games.

I played through Nier: Automata, which was a ride from beginning to end. Highly recommend it.
Then I played Wolfenstein: The New Order and the New Colossus, and they were awesome to play back to back for the first time.
I finished up the last of the moons in Super Mario Odyssey, so I'm putting that one away for now (didn't get the skeleton outfit, but man did I not feel like grinding another 10,000 coins...)
Life is Strange: Before the Storm was heartbreaking and gut-wrenching and so good and anybody who liked the first one should play it.
Lastly I played Oxenfree! Which was short and sweet, but really enjoyable.

Next I'd like to move on to Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, but Night in the Woods comes out on Switch next week, and I haven't played that yet.

yessssssssssssss nier:a is so so good

did you crank both wolfensteins down to the lowest difficulty? I found the gameplay a hassle and, unlike doom, being challenged felt more like a waste of time

so, there was a nine month gap between the launch of the Dreamcast in Japan and America, and Sonic Adventure was a launch title for both. In the months of localization, there were also a handful of tweaks and improvements made to the US launch version, and Japan decided to release an updated version titled Sonic Adventure International with all the improvements + all the language options from the NTSC and PAL releases.

Jet Set Radio also got something similar when the US release (Jet Grind Radio) added two entire levels plus new story for them, it got rereleased in Japan as 'De La Jet Set Radio'.
