Minion of Bak'laag: 100+ unfinished games
Sounds like my type of game. Next time it goes on sale I'll be sure to pick it up! Thanks and good luck with the rest of your setup, happy gaming!

Nice to hear from you as well
Hope you've got your stuff unpacked by now. I couldn't stand that, staring at cartons full of unsorted stuff every day.
Order is always a nice thing to have. My DS and 3DS games are also sorted alphabetically. However, the entire rest of my collection is unsorted. Since I don't own that many games though, it's not really a problem finding certain games.

Glad you're doing well, Yoshi pal I'm doing pretty good myself. Making progress at university, I'm in my 6th semester and I finally found a place for my mandatory traineeship. I'll be working for a TV station. It will start end of July

Yoshi? Sonic the Hedgehog 2? Wut? Never heard of such a possibility. Is that a hack or something?

Well I got you 'beat' as far as replying late goes, it seems.
Granted in my case it's because I got sick for several weeks, but still. Sorry about only writing now.

Because of getting sick, I actually got acase of being interrupted in the midst of an RPG long enough that it took me right out of it. I do hope though to eventually get back to it like you did with Earthbound.

While they did add some extras, my issue with the GBA version of FF1 is that in their attempt to make the game more accessible for people they notably toned down down the difficulty. Too much for my personal taste.

I see that by now, you've finished Link's Awakening. Congratulations on that.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as you anticipated.

Well, people can twist any situation into any perspective or outcome; it's like human reprogramming, almost.

I'm not the biggest Mega 64 fan, but they put out good stuff now and again. We adapt it to the situation, but yes, we use it a lot.

Certainly, though it's not a universal truth; I've played some truly abhorrent fangames that had ZERO grasp on what made the originals so good. Of course, it comes down to that versus the batshit insane direction that some companies have gone. I mean, if a new Mega Man game was made by Capcom, I'd still be pretty wary of it.

I had a similar encounter with Toriel; it was a former student who turned me on to the idea of reloading my save, and because of that, I'd thought that I would have to do a lot of reloading for bosses.
That little misdirection caused me to waste almost all of my healing items on Undyne, because I hadn't considered the possibility of just running away from her. I was fine with blue attacks, for the most part;
I was even fine with Asgore's mix of blue and orange trident swings. I think I would've been okay with the linear nature had I not played Yume Nikki, which has that kind of surreal imagery, but it's almost completely open; there are only a few small areas that need certain effects to access them. The soundtrack is excellent, but the official purchase only has one loop for each, so I had to extend them, myself. Definitely practice for the genocide run, too; it's fucking brutal.
And yes, you do; the Internet will make much more sense after you've seen it.

I've downloaded some other Sonic fangames like Green Hill Paradise Act 1 and 2 that sadly do not work with my Saturn controller, only my XBO controller.

Sonic Mania August 15! I'm wanting to do a Mania theme, but Yakuza Kiwami comes out just two weeks later, and I'd like to do a theme for that too (Yakuza is my #1 IP, Sonic is #2), and I also have some other theme ideas floating around, including one drawing I had commissioned.

I haven't tried my N64 Everdrive yet, just long enough to test it with my 128GB memory card (which is probably overkill), even though I read somewhere that 32GB is the limit. So maybe the Sigma won't actually have a 64GB cap? I mean, it makes no sense, and less when you think that a 200GB and a 64GB are both SDXCs.

I actually own a Sega CD model 1 (the front loading bottom one as opposed to the flip top side model 2) that I'm working on for fun to get working again, even though I have a fully functioning X'Eye. I've also decided to work on a mod for my Sega Nomad to give it USB support, basically so that I wouldn't have to rely on the shitty batteries and so that I could travel with it (and play my Genesis Everdrive on it), like when I go up to SF. I actually did get a few of those poorly pressed games, also a few flat out defective games. I think I had a copy of Blue Stinger that flat out wouldn't work, and maybe one other game that I forget. Grandia II also would sometimes not boot on my original Dreamcast, not sure if that was just cause of that system or what. Leaning towards yes, because ever since I changed systems I've had no issues. Actually just got a region free Saturn too.

Oh, I don't know. I mean the kid that said it was just that, a kid about 17, and seemingly a Nintendo fanboy. I really don't give a shit if people shit on me for not liking Nintendo stuff, I just thought that was pretty funny. By the way, so far Breath of the Wild is really underwhelming me. Not sure if it's because I'm not a huge open world fan usually, or if the hype just set the bar way too high. I haven't tried Bomberman yet. I did order a glass tempered screen protector for docking it, whenever I stream from the Switch or I need to play it on the TV. So far I'm really liking handheld mode, I've even been looking for more games to play on it. Getting Sonic Mania CE on Switch too (as well as PS4), and maybe Forces. I've listed the rest on my wishlist.

I've seen some of the BoR games streamed, Crisis Evil in particular seems pretty damn bad. Some of them do seem okay, but most of them I saw looked kinda crappy, and some ones that didn't had horribly unreadable menus, like... I dunno, light blue on a slightly darker shade of blue or some shit. Akin to using a yellow Backloggery theme and like...I dunno, just HORRIBLY clashing colors.

I mean I think even all the N64 games and all the other versions that came with the zipped complete set I put on my Everdrive wasn't even 32GB, I think. All of the games on my Retro Freak are only like 8GB, and that's like 500ish. Obviously the Sigma can play more advanced cart games (the RF can't do N64, by far the biggest cart games), as well as early disc systems, but I think I should manage couple with the IndieGo, yeah. I dunno, the Sigma's had some delays, but that's really just the way things work with crowdfunding. I think it's rather funny that it's only been a delay of a month or two so far and you already have incredibly entitled people in the comments that say they "could have bought a Pi for less and faster, but didn't", like okay, but you have no fucking room to complain because it's your own damn fault you didn't buy a Pi, and it's borderline idiotic and trollish to not built one yourself for far cheaper and faster, and to bitch about something like the Sigma in such a short time window. Like, did they just buy a Sigma JUST to bitch about the "delays"? You want delays, look at Pier Solar for the Dreamcast, that took like 2-3 years.

I know that Saturn model 2s (round buttons) are somehow easier to chip. I don't know the specifics, but that's what I heard when I got my Saturn modded/bought a pre modded system. Something about different motherboards? I haven't actually chipped any of my systems myself, the only one I own is a chipped PS2 that I got on Craigslist. The only other modded console I've bought was this [Link] , but that's just a flashed BIOS. I've hacked my PSP and (now non functional) Wii, but those were just software hacks.

I mean I definitely can tolerate work this time around far better than before, but things are starting to irritate me. Still nowhere near as bad, and now that I've got my allergies (and sleep) under control, I won't have to miss anywhere near as much work, which means more vacation days! It definitely helps that I now have a buddy to work with, he seems pretty damn good at his job, and is a relatively beginner gamer. Most of the stuff I say (like older systems, he's 25, his first was N64) goes over his head, but I'm really surprised how much he knows for primarily playing shooters.

I think the Metrixx isn't done yet, but it's definitely in my bookmarks. It helps a lot that Sega doesn't take down stuff much like Nintendo. I think Time Twisted is still up.
It's dangerous to go alone! Take a yoshi!
