108) Power Blade 2

110) Life Force
111) Demon Sword

So, had a halfway-finished playthrough from Power Blade 2, so I finished that off. It's a decent game, sure, but the controls feel pretty sluggish. I like the suits, but you really have to know how to take advantage of them to keep from dying. I save-stated/rewound some for this one, but I can see a pretty decent path to victory if I give it another go.

The same cannot be said for Rolling Thunder. Good grief, that game requires some split-second reflexes, or perfect knowledge of the stages, plus unerring execution. Freakin' bats are absolutely horrible, and there are a few jumps that are insanely tricky as well, especially when you've got enemies around that you're trying to avoid. The control scheme is a lot like Castlevania or Ghouls & Ghosts, except the game isn't even that forgiving... I used rewind like crazy to get through it. Could I beat it one day? Perhaps. Do I feel an overwhelming urge to? Heck no.

At least it has passwords, though.

EDIT: Still mining the old savestates, finished off Life Force. This one feels a lot more fair than Gradius, mainly because you get to respawn where you died. It also has that Gradius/Contra thing going where, if you can hang on to your full complement of weapons, things are quite easy. I can see legitimately beating this one when it strikes my fancy, there's not a ton other than that final escape sequence that I can see that would be terribly taxing, and that is even mitigated by the in-place respawn. Just gotta make sure I have enough lives!

(And no, I'm not trying to catch MrPopo, ain't happening. My numbering scheme is different, anyway, so I'm quite a few games behind.)

EDIT 2: More NES mining. Finished Demon Sword. It's been a long time since I beat the game. It's not terrible, actually. It's not great, either, but it's a lot better than Legend of Kage. It's firmly in the average category, where it does a few interesting things, but the execution is a little too uneven to even approach the classics.

EDIT 3: Finished off a playthrough I had going of Bill & Ted's Excellent Game Boy Adventure. My aunt had this when I was a kid, and for some reason it had some fascination for me, despite just being a "run-around-and-collect-stuff" puzzler. It could have been anything, honestly, because the license is just barely integrated, but it's not too shabby. As I mentioned earlier, Job the Leprechaun that I played earlier this year gave me the same vibes, which is when I had picked this up to play again.

Hey Popo, congrats on getting VtM to run. Even with all of the patches, I still can't play it. I'm guessing it has to do with resolution issues for video(which has plagued several of my GOG purchases). Also, I agree with the MoH:AA expansion thoughts of yours, but I disagree with you about SiN. I hated it when I tried playing through it, and I ended up quitting halfway through. The gunplay just did not mesh with me for some reason. I suppose I should go back some day, but it is going to take a while.

Also, Payday 2 has dominated my December, so no more beaten games from me this year. Oh well.

I'll be honest, the gunplay in Sin didn't click until a few levels in. But once it did I had a blast. It rewards good aim and good reactions; enemies tend to suffer from hit stun so you can save a lot of pain by playing well.

There were others who did the spreadsheet thing, so why not?

Breakdown by system is a little sketch, I counted Ninja Gaiden III from the SNES game as SNES because of the differences between versions, but I counted the first game from Trilogy as NES because it's effectively unchanged. Majora's Mask was the remake, so it goes under 3DS.

NES: 36
PC: 20
SNES: 13
Arcade: 7
Wii U: 4
3DS: 4
X360: 3
Game Boy: 3
Android: 2
DS: 2
PS3: 2
Vita: 1
Virtual Boy: 1
N64: 1
GBC: 1
Dreamcast: 1

Genres are very, very broad. Probably too much so. Whatevs! I went with the dominant trait, for the most part.

Platformer: 43
Action: 22
Fighting: 9
Action Adventure: 9
RPG: 7
Puzzle: 6
Shooter: 2
Adventure: 2
Sports: 1

Total unique titles: 101

Whee! I broke 100! :) (A whole lot of NES, though.)

Well I didn't get to beat any more games like I thought I would, but oh well. I still beat 41 games which is fewer than 2014 (only by 2 games), but WAY more than all the other years I've played games combined, so that's good enough for me.

The full list: http://www.racketboy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1015165#p1015165

The breakdown:
Wii: 5
WiiU: 1
DS: 1
3DS: 4
PS1: 2

1. Radiant Historia
2. Halo: Combat Evolved (Master Chief Collection)
3. Halo 2 (Master Chief Collection)
4. Killer Instinct (Season 1 Story Mode)
5. 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors
6. Ori and the Blind Forest (Xbox One)
7. Rayman Legends (Xbox One)
8. Mortal Kombat X (Xbox One)
9. Killer Instinct (Season 2/S2 Story Mode)

11. Halo 3 ODST (Master Chief Collection)
12. Halo 4 (Master Chief Collection)
13. Chrono Trigger (Nintendo DS)
14. The Wolf Among US (Xbox One)

I snuck one in at the last minute. I got this one for Christmas and I'm been playing a little bit every night after the kids are in bed. Oh boy was that a good call. This game is very mature indeed. It is my first Telltale game and I was pretty impressed. This may warrant another playthrough later with different choices. I will have to check out some of their other stuff. There is some stuttering of the graphics from time to time and I have read that is pretty common in their games. I think I can overlook it in most cases if the price is right.

I don't want to give away any story details because that is pretty much the entire point of the game - the story. But I will say this:
The fight at the end with Bloody Mary was epic.

Anyway, highly recommended if you like the choose your own adventure interactive movie type games.

I pressed the power button to bring the screen back on, and when I did, the post was gone. I had copied the post to my clipboard several times during writing, but I'm unable to paste. I'm fucking pissed, so I'm not going to bother re-writing the post. I liked both games, there ya go. Happy 2016 and shit.
