I love to see other people purposefully play "questionable" old games like that; makes me glad I'm not the only one.


You can’t run a series without playing some questionable games.

Thinking about it last night, I think Fantasy Zone The Maze is one of those games that really has to be played with two players. I think it’s just designed that way.

Finally got around to finishing Leon's A run on RE2 Remake. Gonna start Claire's B run and I also started a fresh Leon A run for Twitch.

Still making dead cells runs everyday but beginning to get disheartened. I feel like I've hit the wall in that game and I'm not sure how to push past it. I've been trying for dozens of runs to get past 2 bc difficulty and I just cant get through it for the life of me.

Feeling under the weather today, and have been toying around with Star Wars: Force Unleashed for the PSP.

Boy, do I ever feel overpowered. If anything, the only real difficulty from this game comes from the lack of a second analog stick.

Play on Sith Lord?
I actually played thru the Tattoine DLC a couple weeks ago. It was alright. Got all the achievements. Strangely, the Hoth DLC doesn't have achievements for the 360. I'll still play Hoth one day.

I'm playing thru Ninja Gaiden Black on the One X for the first time. Not quite halfway. Problem is, NGII was just made BC and X Enhanced so I took a break to check that out. One of my favorites.

Other than that, I've been trying to learn the fight mechanics of arcade Killer Instinct 1 & 2 cuz I'm planning on going to an arcade later this year and want to play well there.

I'm still plugging away at the remastered release of BioShock. I've beaten it and will write up my thoughts on Monday, but I am also doing a second run to grab anything I missed. There are also challenge maps that I am working on to wrap up the few achievements I have left to get. Of 65, I'm at 62, so I'm pretty close.

Ninja Gaiden Black is awesome. I really need to play Ninja Gaiden II at some point, though. I’ve read a lot of positive things about it recently. Buoshock’s also on my list, but I feel I should hate-read Atlas Shrugged first, and that book looks like dreadful slog.

I started the Sega Classics Collection (PS2) version of Fantasy Zone last night. It rules. Hard. It looks and sounds great, and it plays wonderfully. Moreover, there is a “challenge” mode where you replay levels with a single ship to earn money and unlock features (e.g., auto fire, the ability to continue, new items in the shop, all new levels, etc.). It’s a bit grindy, but since the grinding is replaying Fantasy Star levels until you’re awesome at them, it doesn’t bother me at all! :lol: As much as I loved the arcade original and 3DS versions, the PS2 version may end up being the very best port. (Although I still plan to try out the TG16 version, I am coming to the realization that the Sunsoft Famicom version of the game may be the very hardest version.)

Well, I finished BioShock Remastered. I haven't posted my thoughts here yet on it, though they largely remain unchanged from my first run through BioShock a few years ago.

After trying a couple of games, I decided it was worth finally looking into BioShock 2. I'm playing the original version on Steam, not the Remastered. The first thing I noticed are the surprising number or keyboard control changes. I don't understand the reasoning behind some of these, and the truth is I'm having a little trouble adapting to how I now swap plasmids. Once again, I feel I have some bad gunplay, though I only just managed to upgrade the Rivet Gun before shutting down for the night, so maybe it's a vast improvement. I think the issue was that I was expecting something like a slug-firing shotgun, and instead it feels like a dinky peashooter.

Now I do like the dedicated melee button, and the drill is a delight. Also, the distant hacking tool was an inspired choice in tweaking game design in interesting ways. I'm looking forward to playing around with it more. And yes, I can melee with it, so I am happy to report I "hacked" a splicer to death. By punching it. In the face.

Been playing Battle & Get! Pokemon Typing DS the past couple days. I thought it'd be super kiddy and a cheap gimmick, but it's actually a really surprisingly fun Typing of the Dead-style game with Pokemon!
There is a surprisingly high skill ceiling that largely revolves around both knowing the Pokemon's names and your ability to touch-type quickly. Granted, for someone like me who does not know the 1st through 5th gen Pokemon's Japanese names very well and isn't used to typing on a Japanese keyboard layout, it's a pretty hard game at times :lol:
But there couldn't be a better way to learn their names, I suppose ^w^
