Yep, Ohio born and raised, and still happy to live here. Space Jam when it came out in '96 got me into basketball and sports at a young age. Followed the Cavs through the good and bad times. Happy to FINALLY witness a major championship in my city during my lifetime (29 right now). Not ashamed to admit shedding manly tears as the time ticked away to zero. We have a minor league hockey team called The Lake Erie Monsters of Cleveland that also won their 1st championship and a local UFC guy defending his title later this year (in Cleveland), and the Indians are in first place in their division with a 10-game win streak. The'll be a while before they get their stuff together. Our Arena Football team, the Cleveland Gladiators will win a title before they do, lol. Overall, good time to be a Cleveland sports fan right now.

Did you hear about our parade? I didn't go because of the hot weather and opted to watch it on local TV. Still, a surreal experience.

Now all the pressure is on cities like Buffalo, Atlanta, San Diego and Minneapolis.

Like the avatar. X-Men 2: The Clone Wars is one of my favorite Genesis games. Played it a bunch of times after school back in the day. 90's NOSTALGIA!

Well, I had a deathless run going on Freedom Planet, but then died twice because of those smashers in Stage 7. Figures, though I never die by enemies in Sonic games, I sometimes still die by mistiming a smasher and getting squished.

I've heard that it might be PT, though I associate Kojima way more with MGS. I guess he did work on PT, though.

Well, I heard that SMS games got broken in that new firmware update. Figures, fucking Hyperkin can never do a firmware update without breaking some part of the system's stability. Oh, I asked about SMS games' saves not carrying over when using the Power Base Converter, and they said that would be fixed in 2.3 or whatever, when in reality it just allows you to import saves from emulators, not the same thing AT ALL. How could someone who works with the R5 every day make a mistake like that? On top of that, I had a guy on Twitter yesterday that couldn't even play SNES games unless he held the cart in place while playing. He ended up leaning the console against a wall to "fix" it. The build quality in the Retron 5 is just shitty, there is no excuse for the "death grip" and the fact that I've gone through two systems in less than a year before I finally got a Retro Freak instead, and guess what? It's been 6-7 months without ANY problems AT ALL.

Yeah, I looked it up, and the mobile version of Sonic 1 did have have a playable Knuckles. Makes you wonder if they actually fixed up Marble Zone's walls so that Knuckles couldn't just glide and climb through the whole zone rather than actually playing it.

I don't even know where those CDs are. I got the Sonic Humble Bundle that has all the Sonic Steam games, mostly, anyway, and I have 3&K and CD on there. 3&K glitched on me, though. On the Marble Garden boss fight, the screen scrolled up like normal, but not Sonic, I had no control. I don't know if the mod support fixed it or if it was just a one time bug, but that's never happened to me before on the cart. The first Gex did have a PC port way back when it came out. I remember my first real experience with Gex was the second (N64) game. I think the first game skipped N64 for some reason, but went to PS1 and 3DO.

Hm. Well, it'd be a fun thing to have

I'm fine here, besides being really damn hot. It's even worse in like Los Angeles, like 110. It's "only" been 90-100 here. Nope, all the fires are far, far away. I think the only fire I actually saw out here was way back in the 90s when I was a kid.

A new Banjo Kazooie game would be...well, it'd depend of what style it is. If it's a platformer like Kazooie or Tooie (or even Grunty's Revenge), I'd probably be interested...though I wasn't a huge fan of Tooie. I was all over it as a kid, but back then I thought big levels were awesome, I mostly really liked DK64 back then. Now I don't like Tooie because not only is it too big for its own good, but it has too many minigames for Jiggies. Don't get me started on DK64...I think my main problem with DK64 is mostly the fact that 99% of Golden Bananas require you to beat some stupid painful minigame (also the Banana Medal games being very rage inducing) rather than it being big. I guess Kazooie set the bar so damn high for Banjo games that I was just really bitter towards Tooie once I got past the initial excitement. Grunty's Revenge...was okay for what it was, but still had too many minigames. I'd probably play it again, but it's probably lower than Tooie for the general quality of a GBA Banjo, I suppose. I was really excited for Nuts and Bolts when it was first revealed, because the first trailer made it look like a platformer...but once I actually played it, I was severely let down. I suppose I might have enjoyed it if I didn't go in expecting a Banjo game and if it didn't have the Banjo name...but I guess it's more that it's isn't really my type of game and it relies far more on races and challenges to progress than even Tooie.

All I know about Clock Tower is it is a horror game on Super Famicom on PS1 that has you play as a girl being stalked by a guy with a wicked long pair of scissors, and that it generally seems pretty popular in the horror community. I've only seen maybe an hour of the game, but think Nemesis in RE3, or Alien Isolation I'm told.

Probably more baffling is the fact that Silent Hill 1 and 2 have the EXACT same "tank" controls, yet nobody ever says anything bad about them in those games. If they do, it's far less than in classic RE games. But I guess the reason is the camera is different from the classic RE games, which brings us back to the fact that people should be complaining about the cameras, not the controls.

I tried the PS3 controller on PC way back, and I needed some program called MotionInjoy, which I eventually ditched because I had heard it was malware, but never saw any evidence to support that statement. I had my old PC for 10 years. How would I have had it without trouble so long if that were true?

Not a lot of people realize how fucked up my mind really is, but given the life that I've led, it's not entirely unexpected. It's like M.C. Escher said, "I don't need drugs; my dreams are weird enough."

I'm surprised that one doesn't exist, at least as far as I'm aware; this is the best that I could find: [Link]

I actually got it back in my teaching days; I was eating lunch in the lounge one day, and there was a pile of discs free for the taking. I got 3 episodes of Mystery Science Theatre, and though Space Mutiny was the one that sounded least exciting, I wound up liking it even more than The Sinister Urge and The Horrors of Spider Island. Turns out that the guy was in a ton of '80s Action flicks.

Is it just the cartoon, or does it have the Super Mario Bros. Super Show on it, as well? They are terrible, but there's a neat episode now and again, and it's nice to see a medium that remembers that things like Lynels and Goriyas exist.

Oh yes, I remember those days, though mines were mostly on the PC. Games like Doom and Duke Nukem 3D all had no-clipping codes, and they all had weird shit out there. Doom didn't have an area, so much as it swirled the wall into which you'd been walking infinitely, leaving smears, like if you'd use the stamper tool in Mario Paint like a marker.

Only 4 or 5. It's how you get one of the Shiny Trinkets. There's one right in front of you, but there's the tiniest possible square in your way, and since it's VVVVVV, you can't jump. So, you flip. You flip through 5 screens absolutely covered in spikes that become increasingly narrow and winding as you reach the top. You reach the top, and hopefully land on a disappearing platform with spikes underneath, so you have a split second to flip again, going back down through it all. No checkpoints, of course.

Yeah, I Diamond today and set X to too.
So the question is, is there a true ending or not? Because it kind of left me REALLY worried like no other ending to a game did before
Hopefully it will start acting as a upwards-pointing slope instead from now.
Well, the thing is, I might just as well bring my WiiU on vacation if it works wothout a TV, and I pretty much think it does. I will check tomorrow, I think. If it DOES work, I might just as well do one at a time, starting with Yo-Kai Watch.
If I'm not mistaken YNI does that too. My plan is to restart it and it after I Woolly World. The thing is, I only have about 80 days of vacation and I'm thinking of a way too busy gaming schedule... I fear I will get underwhelmed with all these games
EDIT: Read your conversion with Gioku, that attack is not hard to dodge if you know where it strikes beforehand It's made of three attacks. The first strikes upwards and the second in the middle, so you can just stand still. Then get as close to the center of the screen as possible while floating and you will dodge the third and defeat the boss. I didn't get hit first time but it's because I knew all this, it's pretty hard to dodge blind, I think.
