Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
Defeated Dracula once again; got the bad (worst?) ending. I was a lot closer to the end than I thought.

☆★★★★ I should of known better, but most items cost hearts to use in this game. I was using the knives like the holy water and before you knew it, I was out of hearts.

Consider Yourself a Hero: Majority of games are beaten

I think we're going to see the AL East return back to business as usual where it's a division contested between the Red Sox and Yankees, the Blue Jays and Rays are bottom feeders, and Baltimore is just sorta there in the middle. The Blue Jays are sputtering. The wanted to get younger, they haven't. They wanted to become more athletic, they haven't. While Boston and New York are out there getting the deals done and doing what it takes to win ball games, the Blue Jays are sitting around making budget deals and hoping something happens to click. They missed out on Encarnacion because they're not willing to dig into the wallet a bit, then they lost their chance at Fowler for much the same reason. Their options are running out. The old GM, Alex Anthopolous, was willing to do what it takes to win, he was responsible for guys like Josh Donaldson, David Price, Russel Martin, and so on. This new staff has done nothing but disappoint. And just like that, gone is the magic that was in Toronto for the last two years. Better luck in 20 years or so. Whoops... I'm ranting now...

Anywho, for the sake of me not ranting, how's life treating you? Doing anything special for the holidays?

The companions aren't something that ANYONE likes; they just tolerate them because they love the Zelda games. I know Nintendo can get away with them, but wouldn't you rather make your customers happy? It'd actually be less work to do so.

Looks like I managed to crash them all out last Saturday, but now, I have about 3 more. This is when I have so little time to work them that I just burn them to a CD to listen to them on my commute, write notes on my hand, and fix shit when I get home.

It definitely worked a lot better in games like Esper Dream 2 and Zelda 2, where there was more of a fusion of the 2 genres; Magic of Scheherazade's only fusion is Action and Adventure, since the RPG bits are just stapled on. Ever see The Human Centipede? The RPG parts are the dying, infected Jenny Tail of the whole shebang. My sister's been watching the Retromancers, and now, she's really into Guardian Legend. She was telling me someone told her about some other game that's supposed to be like it, but it really wasn't, so I've got her hunting for Sigma Star Saga, as well. Culture Brain sorta embodies the typical modern indie developer credo, but: [Link]

Yeah, just because something has puzzles doesn't mean it's intellectual; Lufia: Ruins of Lore proved that, which was pretty shocking, considering how good the puzzles in Rise of the Sinestrals were. Of course, rather than being unfairly hard, these were too easy; you had 2 varieties: "use character-specific item to do thing" and "pick up pot and put it on button". A bit later into the game, there were some particularly devilish brain-teasers that had you *gasp* combining BOTH methods! What a worthless fucking shell of a game.

My sister and I plan to get together on Christmas Eve, since we're both off from work, and I my gift to her is a pile of video game soundtracks based on the games that the Retromancers have played on their YouTube channel, since she's really into them right now; I can just slap them onto her computer, and she's good. During that time, we're going to try out Kirby with SEXTIT; I'll let you know what we see if we get there. She and I will also be playing StarTropics, since that was something we used to do together when she'd have a snow day.

I saw that too. Also, that's nice of you to call me Koop, I never expected the nickname to get out of Twitter.

Never really thought about that, but yeah, there are a lot of cheery snow themes. Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie come to mind immediately.

Yup - it's so nifty to play on the go, especially with Shuffle Mobile and GO (the latter of which I am currently addicted to the most). But I think that is just a major phase - I will get back to Mario eventually.

Yup, I finally beat PMD Red (After not playing it for, like, 11 months or so. ) Finished it off in a single night session. I was honestly a bit scared of what was coming, and then the music dropped in and I faded away into the human world and I just started crying... Koop (that's how I and my friends call @Koopa_Paratroopa) had to hold me.

Indeed. You were one of two that remembered, I'm thankful enough for that.

I'll write her a message now
It's dangerous to go alone! Take a yoshi!
