Gradius Collection: Gradius III
A decent game, utterly ruined by arcade greed. Constantly blindsiding the player + completely unacceptable checkpoint placement/frequency = trash.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Engrossing atmosphere, solid combat, good use of 3D, and I dig the franchise continuity. Fun, despite some qualms with the mechanics and level design.

A Boy and His Blob
A cute and well-executed puzzle-platformer with a gentle learning curve and doofy controls. With a few easy changes, this could be truly great.

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.

Creative simplicity with an informative twist. Engrossingly atmospheric and relaxing to play. For a game about writing, the text needs some polish. Achievements: 4 / 12 (33%)

Retrospective: April 2016

With no new Mega Man level design contests cropping up, I found myself able to once again devote my free time to...uh...staying late at the office. April was a busy month. However, I managed to accomplish a few things of note, so I'm happy with what ...

Huh. The only one that I didn't know was the Mega Man 3 one. I'm downloading it right now; I'll give it a shot, but I can't say when. The one screenshot shows tilesets from both Kirby's Adventure and Cocoron, which alone is pretty exciting; the last time I've seen Corocon material in a game was in Eversion. Fuckers thought they were soooooo clever stealing the music in its entirety, though I imagine that I'm one of the few to have noticed.

Completely understood, and agreed with! MM4 being my favorite of the series as well, I can honestly say RM4:BCAS is almost unrecognizable as the base game. Physics were altered, level geometry changed to suit the new physics, enemy patterns and placement changed, boss weaknesses shuffled, and boss patterns altered.

On the subject of Mega Man romhacks, I just want to call to attention "Rockman 4 : Burst Chaser x Air Slide". Incredibly fun and changes up the gameplay drastically by increasing movement speed and rearranging level geography to suit this.
No matter where you go, there you are.
