Resident Evil 7 is looking more like 'Hide-and-seek" which will be a big turn-off for me ...

I mean, it's not all that strange, since technically the game is still on, even though the system is in rest mode. If you know the game clock increases when the game's on, even in the pause menu, it makes sense. I actually forgot to turn Wild Arms off one time about a month or two ago and it was on overnight at the save menu, so now my ingame clock is at like 24 hours or something. I didn't care enough to change it, since you don't get anything for a fast time in any RPG I can think of (only like Metroid games and RE games, and a few other metroidvanias), so I just left it. Now, I've made so much progress that I definitely don't care enough to redo it.

I don't think so? I really have no idea, to be honest. I've only tried that on the Retron 5 (because of all its fucking problems). I have Retro Arch on my PC too, and it seems to work better on it (though some games are still a bit choppy for some reason, like Sonic 1 audio oddly enough, which is why I chose to use my PSP), in that it actually reads FDS and other stuff, and I can have more options, my PC being probably more powerful than the Shield TV. They just released a Saturn emulator for Mednafen, actually, which is a multi system emulator I use for some Retro Arch systems, so maybe soon I can use that, cause getting SSF set up again is kind of a pain. Some day I probably should check out my PC's Retro Arch, or try to get my Shield's to work again. I mean, as it is now, it's still a great option to play mobile games on, cause there's actually a controller. Which is...something, certainly because there are some great games only getting mobile releases.

The loading for Sonic 06 was what made me drop it, not so much because of the bugs. It looks way more polished than like Superman 64 (that was on a previous Backloggery Charity Stream)

Sleeping is a bit hard, being an insomniac, but it's becoming a bit more manageable now that I have Melatonin I take nightly. There has only been one night where I've been up all night in the past 3 months, which is waaaay better than it was before.

I was fiddling around on my PC, and I found the Streets of Rage remake, as well as getting Pokemon Uranium and the Metroid II remake. I got Joy 2 Key and got the SoR remake to work with my Saturn controller, feels amazing. I got Pokemon to work with my XBO pag, but I might change that cause likely I only need a few buttons. Got my SNES retrofitter out for Metroid II, and maybe Pokemon.

No, I haven't heard anything yet. Last thing I heard was she had a check up on it that may or may not have already happened, I forget when he said it was. But now my mom's dad (the one who had a stroke) died last night or this morning. I hate this month. A lot. I didn't really know him that well, my mom's family is kinda weird in that her mom remarried and her step dad was way more of a grandfather to us than her actual dad...probably because she didn't really like her step mom, I dunno...but HE died back in...I forget, 10 years ago sounds right?

Oh, I already got that part taken care of, when I streamed the Sonic 1 hack, it was from my PSP. The hardest part is actually seeing which game I'm loading up in the emulators, since the screen on that is tiny because for some reason it doesn't stretch the image to the PC screen (even though it does for the PSP's XMB) I wouldn't hold your breath for a permanent hack, not even the current PSP ones are really permanent, they just have restore things that take maybe a few seconds to run and get the CFW back on your PSP if you were to turn it off. I never really turn mine off unless it crashes, but for the first while I didn't know about that, so I ended up redownloading and reinstalling the whole CFW, which I think was why my emulator saves got wiped.

I'm pretty upset that Sonic Mania isn't on PSN preorder yet...but I guess it doesn't have a solid release date yet. I don't remember if they've done preorders for stuff without solid dates before, but I think they might have for Yakuza 5 before the date was announced in the PSX event. Hmmm...I'd recommend Skies of Arcadia, but the GCN version has extras and a lower encounter rate, the only real thing the DC version has over it is the music, since GCN is two discs compressed into one with extras. Other than that, definitely Dynamite Cop and Grandia II (DC version is the best version except maybe the Steam version, which is based off the DC version. Don't bother with the PS2 version). I'd recomment the DC versions of RE2 and RE3, along with CV if you want to check out the original non-X version (DC is the only console with it), and definitely CVX for DC (it's the JP CVX game in my DC games), which isn't a problem cause the dubs are in English, but the only issue is the items are in Japanese...unless you know the game, which I've played JP RE2 a lot because I've played US RE2 lots. Little worried about JP RE3, though...

It's alright Yoshi pal... don't have much time on me at the moment either

Did any company ever release an update to a game before the 3DS/Wii U era...?
...Oh wait, I remember, there was this issue with the first pressing of the Super Paper Mario discs, where the game could freeze at Chapter 2-3 or something... I had that issue too but I found a workaround

Actually, Team Instinct FTW. While Mystic and Valor tear themselves apart we will be watching from a safe place.

Glad to hear it! I like the Arcade game the best, because I like the scream he makes when he falls off the edge. I love the isometric aesthetic, but so few games that use it play well. One of the few that does is Skeleton Krew, because it has no platforming elements.

We had all sorts of great jokes there; I miss that place a lot. This is the place where we had to tone down our language. That meant specifically not saying motherfucker; fuck was perfectly fine.

Funny story about Moonside: so, last year, on our vacation, my lady did something very out of character. We met this girl whose nickname is Jacks (Jax?), and her other nickname is Boobs. My lady just started groping her; she was totally fascinated by this girl's boobs. So, we altered the quote in the Moonside museum. "Do you know whose boobs these are? Your boobs. My boobs. Boobs's boobs. Boob boob boob." But yes, I love Moonside. I'm not the biggest Atari fan, so I don't know that I've ever played Robotron; I may have played it at my sister's house, but I don't remember. Oh? Can you give me a few examples?

Plus they went for a realistic style; Contra has jungles, cliffs, etc. Aside from the alien lair, it's all things you've seen before. In Metroid or Doraemon, you don't have any idea where the fuck you're supposed to be, and that makes the experience all the more strange and memorable. Like I always say, give me something I can't experience in reality; that's the magic of video games! Knytt is wonderful. Knytt Stories is cool, too, but it's not a long, immersive experience, like the original. They're both free, though, so you can't beat that! I was never any good at hide and seek; I never had the patience to sit still long enough. That and I didn't have any friends growing up, at least not until I was too old for hide and seek. The bed was at my parents' house, where nobody ever tried to do anything that awful to me, so no; I was safe under there.

That sounds interesting, but maybe not quite my bag. I recently played Paper John Land, which was also broken, because you can get a flying Yoshi very easily; the kind that you have in the bonus stages in Super Mario World after grabbing the wings. The cape is replaced by a thing that makes you double jump for when you can't have one, which isn't often; you can bring him into the ghost houses, fortresses, and castles, but not through doors or small passages.
It's dangerous to go alone! Take a yoshi!
