just beat bionic commando for the NES a couple days ago. dunno if it qualifies as an underrated gem anymore (certainly not round these parts prolly) but it was fucken good

also beat mega man 2 on its intended difficulty for the first time recently (i know i know lol). really good and way more satisfying than easy ("normal") difficulty. but holy shit is that one boss you have to use crash bombers on fucken stupid. the 8 robot master stages are GREAT but the wily's fortress parts in general aren't great and they kinda drag the game down (though alien wily's a fun lil moment/twist lol). i still prefer mm4 & mm5 over 2

It IS fun.


So I'm still playing this. Outside of Overwatch team-ups with my wife this is all I've been playing for the past month+. I'm getting quite good at it, I finally got a perfect run on Hard difficulty today.

Picked up Destiny 2 again the other day, now that I've got somebody to play it with, and it holds up a lot better as a group game than trying to solo everything!

Also, DK: Tropical Freeze, since I never did finish it when it came out on the WiiU.

Undercards. It's like Hearthstone, but everything is UnderTale.
Also, Pokémon Showdown! battle simulator. It's pretty fun.

For the past few months, I have been sporadically playing Wrecking Crew whenever I need to pass the time. The game is... frustrating. I had a longer post written up, but my computer crashed and I lost it, so here is a much shorter version.

One complaint I have with the game is that the mechanics are not intuitive or require a lot of experimenting to figure out. Time stops when all enemies go inside a door? Letters appear behind certain walls but only if you break them in a specific order? Santa Claus?

My biggest complaint is the very limited abilities available to the player, which leads to scenarios in which the player is doomed or stuck. There are a surprising number of ways for the player to get stuck in ways that the only way out is to press the Select button and exit to the main menu. Mario can't jump, so if Mario falls on top of a barrel that had dropped from the floor above, he has no way to get out of the knee-high pit. If a barrel drops on top of Mario, you can't do anything to escape from it and nothing can hurt you. It's a good thing the game includes a level select, or else it would be very difficult for anyone to see most of the game's 99 levels.

I think there is potential here to make a better game, and I would be happy to see a sequel that fixes the game's flaws, even if it is just a little eShop title or something.

I finally started playing The Stick of Truth yesterday. I wasn't expecting anything resembling good from South Park, and yet, here I am, the day after, having just beaten it.

So, yeah, shockingly good. Minus one part that I honestly wish the EU censor had hit a little harder. Guess I'll move on to The Fractured But Whole. Also trying to play Morrowind for the first time, which is interesting given that my entire TES experience is Skyrim and a little ESO.

I've been playing Phantasy Star Online 2 lately with my team lately. It's still been slow however but I've made some progress on my gear.

I played and finished Monster Hunter World a while back. The Kulve Taroth siege mode was exciting but I used my only Playstation Plus trial for the duration and I don't think I'll play more to warrant the payment.

I resubscribed to a month of Final Fantasy XIV but I'm still finding it hard to ease into it as healer. I am in a free company but it's hard for me to get into the savage raids so the only thing I can do for them is craft items to help them out and that's really it.

Seems like a very interesting game.

One thing that I discovered is that the strategy to play Coup depends a lot on how many players are in the game.

With the max number of players (six), it's usually better to play honestly, because when you want to fake a card, the chance that someone has seen this card, thinks the probability that you have it is low and challenges you is high.

Also, it seems it's better to play defensively, mostly because this way you see more player actions and it becomes easier to guess the opponent's card. I think some research suggests that humans are terrible at doing "random" actions, so trying to read them is worth it almost every time.

Coup is really fun. Also a bit frustrating to me because I usually don't have a plan playing it and just go through doing any action that makes sense at any particular time, which can end up poorly. I'm bad at coming up with strategies though.

Basically you have some cards that have special abilities, but you can do whatever you want, even if you don't have the card. If you think the opponent is lying (using an ability from a card he does not have), you can challenge him/her, but if the challenge is lost you are penalized.

It's a bit like poker, it all boils down to trying to infer what cards your opponents have based on their actions, and react accordingly. There is a simulator online for people who want to try it out.


ooh I've played that before. Fun!

e: I made it to stage 5 of Tatsujin on one credit today, which is really good progress. I'm also trying to do a no-death clear of Shinobi on hardest difficulty with fast bullets; I've gotten the 1CC a few times, it's just a matter of getting that magic run where everything comes together.

Tatsujin, it's super hard, can't even get past stage 2 on one credit and I've already put like 7 hours into it. but still lots of fun

Truxton 1&2/Tatsujin and Tatsujin Ou are two of the hardest shmups that aren't manic or danmaku, mostly due to stage length. Wishin you the best!

I suck at 1ccing shmups personally lol


Thanks! I can clear stage 3 now, so progress!

I started Ys V, at Ramzen Plains. It's trying really hard to be Zelda or Mana, but it's still fun.
Got past Hollow Bastion on Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ weeks ago too but my stomach virus (it's gone now) kinda got me out of the mood to play that.
My Paper Mario playthrough's at Chapter 3, also not in the mood to play it rn because Mario RPGs are super slow paced.
And I'm also replaying Pokémon Red. Catching Pokés I find cute/cool then going for full Pokédex (using cheats because blah) in the post game. Beat Misty, heading to Bill's house. Current team is Squirtle, Pidgey, Nidoran♀, Pikachu and Oddish. Also have a Jigglypuff and a Clefable but I don't really intend on using em. Gonna try to get an Abra for Psychic type representation.

Might replay Romancing SaGa 1 (or play the PS2 remake) sometime later when I'm done translating the data on Romancing Tiger's Nest.

Also in a Mega Man mood. Beat Mega Man 1 for like the umpteenth time, and now I'm replaying MM2 difficult mode.

A friend put a bug in my ear about actually playing Horizon: Zero Dawn, so I got back into it, and man. What a game. I actually got the Platinum for it, which is a first-ever for me. (Helps the plat's pretty easy ) Now I'm diving back into Fire Emblem Warriors, and mixing in some Dark Void, which is a weird throwback to gaming in 2010. Decent though!

Same. I started modding the Special Edition because of how much more stable it is. 136 mods, no issues at all, and so far, perfectly stable!

Then I realised my temperatures were reaching 100 degrees and I had to close it. Just gave the computer and damn good cleaning, and I'm about to retry.

I also bought Far Cry 5, which I'm really enjoying. It's surprisingly unlike Far Cry 3 and 4, which serves it really well. Had it been more of the same, I probably would've been quite disappointed.

Been playing Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for PSX (PSN release on Vita) recently, more or less for the first time ever, too. Finished the main part, but only just started on the, so to speak, "inverted half" of the game.
