Mega Man 8
Slowly recording this for YouTube. A decent game, but a disappointing Mega Man game. Way too many poorly executed changes to the formula.

Time Capsule

I've been lurking around the World Wide Web since the days of dial-up, but it wasn't until my first post with Exfanding Your Horizons in 2008 that I established any kind of online presence. Before then, you'd never find anything of mine by accident&m...

Sincerest apologies for the belated response on my part! I wanted to answer back to your comment in kind and express my appreciation for your compliment toward my articulate wordiness. I must certainly commend the wholehearted breadth of topics explored in your respective blog which I honestly enjoyed reading over these past several weeks. Although we might not have an explicit similarity in our interactive taste, it would seem the both of us have an appreciation for the zaniness of Japanese animation, particularly Azumanga and Evangelion, the eccentric allure of David Bowie and, indeed, a nostalgic fancy for Jurassic Park. If you'd ever like to engage in conversational, perhaps even academic, discussion in regard to any of the aforementioned subjects, feel welcome to send a message anytime, sir! Perhaps I can offer my own artistic perspective as an aspiring film director. I truly appreciate the backlog add and I hope that you didn't mind that I took the initiative without proper introduction!

My comment from the stream, since I don't think you caught it:
"Kunosachiaka : @Flashman85 Don't try to stream Mighty No 9. Meant to post this on Backloggery but forgot. The PC version has a data leak that makes your computer chug and almost die the longer you play it in a single sitting. I don't know if they fixed it but it's terrible for streaming."

Good stream as usual, though! I think it usually works out better when they're shorter if it's not something like your marathon run with DashJump. I also think a stream of 8-bit Deathmatch that brings you together with a bunch of your viewers could be a fun idea someday. Even if you don't like the game itself, it might be fun to interact with your fans and cohorts on a greater level.

EDIT: Before I forget, I bought Shovel Knight during the Steam Summer Sale and was planning to send it to you as a surprise once you added me back, but you haven't yet. According to Steam, it was 71 days ago. By all means, take your time, but my "aha, surprise!" effect has warn off and I just want to tell you not to get it yourself (for PC at least) because I already did...but...Hahah! Surprise! Betcha didn't see that...coming...

Yeah, that was also me. I'm starting fresh, and treating my entire collection as . Trying to experience everything like it's the first time.

I always see people say Contract J.A.C.K. is bad compared to the other games in the series, but I want to at least try it after I finish NOLF 2, so I can see for myself how it is. I'm also curious to see what NOLF 2 changes from the first; I loved certain things about the original, like the story, presentation, and dialogue, but sometimes found myself frustrated with the gameplay itself (like how you have to keep holding the crouch key in order to sneak around; my thumb gets really tired out by that, so levels where stealth was required were a pain to go through ).

I agree with raritycatchme that Episode 3 is the best of the Strong Bad bunch.
No matter where you go, there you are.
