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.

Retrospective: July 2016

Hoo boy. After five years of exile on the moon (as I frequently referred to it), I finally found an opportunity to leave. July was spent packing up the moon base and looking for a new place to live, but I managed to fit in a little time to keep some ...

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.

The Strong Bad games were lots of fun for me. Very much in the spirit of the series. The Dangeresque one was a particular highlight for me. They share the same little issue I had with Back to the Future (the episodes share the same setpiece and everything feels a bit samey), but in the Strong Bad games it works with the make-believe aspects of Homestar Runner's world, so it's charming.

Hope you have lots of laughs!
