I just beat Momodor III tonight. The first pass, at least. It looks, from the name of one of the achievements, that there is a loop system where you can slowly introduce change. It's a fairly short, but challenging (not Nintendo-hard, however), retro platformer that seems to want to inspire thoughts of Cave Story, at least visually. The sound effects are all 8-bit styled, but the music is not, and is quite pretty. It doesn't really have any core story to speak of, at least not one that stuck in my memory over the couple weeks I've been picking away at it, a few minutes at a time.

Regular price is $4 on Steam. I got it on sale for $2. I would not have felt ripped off at $4. Worth a play.

6. The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay - PC (April 5)
7. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon - PC (April 18)

10. Saints Row The Third - PC (June 24)
11. *NEW* Konami Krazy Racers - GBA (June 27)

A GBA launch title that probably didn't get a lot of love because it was the first American entry in the long running Wai Wai series from Japan. Most of the initial characters were also from Japan-only Konami games (4 are hidden including the Vic Viper), but the track selection might be a little more familiar to the rest of us, featuring areas inspired by Twinbee, Castlevania, and Metal Gear. There are also special license challenges where you must complete certain tasks. For a Mario Kart knockoff, worth a play.

28. Ikachan (3DS)

Ikachan is a very short game from Cave Story's creator, Daisuke Amaya. In it, you play as a squid who saves a group of anemones and fish from a disaster. It is a very, very short "metroidvania" game where the main character looks like a Blooper and controls like a bird from Joust. (You will be pressing the "A" button a lot.) The game is generally charming, and its atmosphere is very similar to Cave Story's. It is also consistently engagin. I was able to beat the game in about an hour, however, and once you have beaten it, there is really no reason to go back to it. I would have felt ripped off if I paid more than $1.50 for it, but since I didn't, I enjoyed it for what it was.

Majora's Mask. Yay!

Seriously, this is the only mainline Zelda I never finished (I consider Four Swords Adventures a side-story). It's... well, it's a good game, and I see the appeal, it's just not built to appeal to me. The focus on sidequests for a lot of the game makes for a lot of work. The dungeons are fine, though! It's also got one of the strangest tones in all of gaming. Seriously weird stuff.

I actually didn't feel the remake changed a whole lot from my experience with the N64 version. Yes, it helps to have a little more smoothness in the engine, but I think the N64 version already felt a little better in that department than Ocarina, probably because it was an Expansion Pak game. There are certainly some nice concessions to saving time in this version. The small tweaks are all for the better for sure.

Toward the end, I went ahead and busted out the walkthrough, as I needed a couple more masks. I know I could have sussed out the Anju/Kafei subquest, but... I was ready to be done with it. I did decide to challenge myself and not use the Fierce Deity much in the final fight. Turned out it wasn't so bad even as normal Link, good dodging and the Great Fairy's Sword helps, as do Light Arrows.

Anyway, glad to have this one behind me. I get the love, I just don't love it myself. I love parts of it, but it's a little too uneven for me to unequivocally recommend.

I think I enjoyed the first two Duke Nukem games more than you did, but I still agree that Mega Man and Mario are superior.

Yeah, I might have been more positive towards them if I grew up with those DOS platformers, as I've seen a bunch of them on Ancient DOS Games and they tend to have a lot of the same gameplay elements, and it's clear that Duke Nukem is one of the better ones.

I completed Mega Bomberman on the Sega Genesis this evening!

Man, that game is annoying, frustrating and addicting all at the same time. There are times when I will die and feel like an idiot. Then I will beat the level and feel like the genius. The password feature was greatly used as I had to use many of times as some of the levels were frustrating and the bosses could be extremely mean. The final boss in particular had five miniature stages and then three forms which you have to do with five lives. The music was different and some of it was quite nice. The level design was very unique and innovative. The game can be really good, but really annoying the next. However, the multi-player is superb and the best part of the game!

I remember struggling with this game a lot as a kid, even though it was one of my favourites.

Then I found out the best tactic is to remember which levels give you what items and the game becomes easy. Get the extra hit heart, the remote control bomb, and a louie in the fire world, grab the walk through bombs and the line bomb item from the water world and it becomes a breeze and very hard to die. If you do screw up you'll probably lose your extra hit heart or louie instead, and they're quick to replace.

The line bomb is key. You can destroy enemies without getting near them. The walk through bombs item gets you out of any stupid mistakes, and the remote stops them going off before you get away.
