With so many difficulty settings, you'd think EASIEST wouldn't be unplayably hard. The poor level design stands out here; the SNES port is better.

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%)

A Tall Ship, and a Star Trek to Steer Her By

It's no secret that J.J. Abrams' rebooted Star Trek universe has been a source of consternation and displeasure for me since 2009, but while I've discussed the problems with the feel and storytelling of NuTrek rather extensively, there's one element ...

I grabbed Mega Man 8 from the PlayStation Store while it is on sale this week. I'll try to play it in parallel with your video playthrough.... once that eventually happens.

I tried to play FEZ for my alphabet marathon, but my 6 year old laptop did not run it well at all. I'm going to try to revisit it when I get a new computer.

The original R-Type is a good one to have. I approve!

More into R-Type, myself, but I completely understand. After going through Tengu Man's stage I'd want to play an actual shooter, too!

Your answer has made me curious.

What are those games?

Doesn't sound too good about FEZ...hmmm... I thought it was critically acclaimed.

Are you gonna play it through?

Interesting you decided to play Fez now! I tried to play my Steam version about a couple weeks ago, but it kept crashing any time I pressed to start, so that's on hold for now. There was also quite a bit of media controversy revolving around Fez's creator, Phil Fish. I won't get into it here as I don't know if you care or want to let it influence your opinion, but a simple Google search of the creator would be enough to give you an idea if you're interested. It's worth it for a good facepalming laugh, if anything.
No matter where you go, there you are.
