Just droppin' a quick post here, as this is the fourth iteration of Phantasy Star Online I've rolled through since joining the forum.
Image
Anyhow, the game's pretty fun on the 'Cube. I played as a human female ranger (a "RAmarl" if you go by the incoherent PSO language) and spent about 32 hours traversing both episodes on normal mode. I didn't realize how lopsided the episodes were. Episode I is grindy and quest-based, while Episode II is a quest-less cakewalk with rehashed enemies and bosses. I think 26 of my hours were spent in the first episode.
Image
Gameplay is just as repetitive and addictive as ever. I'm excited to try some split-screen multiplayer now. And perhaps one day I'll get to the Plus version of the game, as well as the Xbox port (now playable thanks to hackers!)

Not organized and have too poor a memory to type lists up or whatever. I did just beat Wacky Races for the NES. No racing despite being based off an old cartoon about races. A platformer on the NES because it's the NES. It's not bad, got a Gradius type power up system but there's not enough and it can be abused. Pretty much a cakewalk, one of the easier NES games.

Loved the cartoon and loved the dreamcast kart racer. That game was hard!

Flower.

Enjoyable for a game about nothing. Motion controls I dislike in this game. I enjoyed it nonetheless. Not a whole lot you can say about the game. You fly a flower pedal into other flowers until the stage is done. For how simple it is,it's a nice relaxing game. I'd day this is the game people should play who rage calling people slurs on Call of Duty online chat and throw controllers. Should relax them to sleep.

That thrash move was pretty reliable in the original Turtles arcade game and Turtles II on NES as well.

Turtles II on the NES had no thrash move. You had attack, jump kick, and that jumping slash that happened if you attacked while still in the vertical startup of your jump that one hit KO'd foot soldiers.

Oh, you're right. That was arcade-only, wasn't it... You know, Hyperstone Heist really feels like TMNT arcade 1.5.

Haha yeah, pretty sure I spent most of my PSO time playing Episode 1 as well. Overall somehow had 90 hours on that game all offline too. A lot was co-op with a buddy though. Great times.

55) Faxanadu (NES) (8.0) (7/14) (~6 hours)

Faxanadu may not be peak Falcom, but it's a darn good game regardless. A few quirks of the time; some strange hit detection and iffy clues mar the proceedings, but not enough to really diminish the game. It actually stacks up pretty favorably to Zelda II, although the scope is still a bit smaller. It's got a really nice cohesive theme and color palette, and really doesn't stray from its overall grungy feel.

Also, a word to the wise: Just skip the tower that has the Pendant. It's supposed to increase your attack power, but oh, no, it doesn't. You actually get weaker. Turns out to be a bug in the code, you basically start the game with the effects of the Pendant, and lose it upon acquiring it. You don't need it to finish the game, but if you're a completionist, you can use a patch to fix it.
