SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal
At its best, a cathartic beat-em-up; at its worst, an infuriating exercise in repetition. Character customization is fun; story needs work. Achievements: 48 / 51 (94%)

Heroes Chronicles: Clash of the Dragons
It's basically a bonus Rampart campaign for Heroes III, and that's fine with me.

Reflections on a Year of Self-Quarantine

When I promised my wife that I would grow my hair out to Thor length if I was ever allowed to work from home full-time, I was not expecting it to become a tangible reminder of how long I've been weathering a global pandemic. It's been over a year sin...

The remaster of broken sword is just ugly and not natural. Nothing beats the original. I see you love Mega Man, I just beat MM5 the other day, I have all 6 MM games for the NES beaten except 1 & 6. I've also replayed MM2. Pretty amazing how every single MM game contains at least 2 or 3 amazing songs, even MM6

Hello abour Broken Sword, you gotta play the original pc version, the director's cut kind of sucks, its just not the same feeling. I have played all 3 versions (PC,PSX,GBA) and the game is fantastic, probably the best point & click out there

I'm loving Technobabylon. It's been on my playlist forever, I even started it once already but got stumped on a puzzle. I figured it out this time though :D I remember you mentioning the gore being offputting and I can see why it's not for everyone, man that's some bloody pixel art!

If you like Wadjet games, have you tried Shardlight? It's got a similar feel to Technobabylon but more post-apoc wasteland than cyberpunk. It's dark in tone but I don't remember any gory bits. I really enjoyed it.

Yeah, I'm in a similar situation, I think. I like the music and charm of the Kirby games a lot, but as far as the games are concerned, Planet Robobot is the only one I can say was genuinely fantastic, and Amazing Mirror is at most a guilty pleasure for me, which I still need a map for. Kirby's not a bad series by any means, I just don't think many of the games are for me. Maybe I need to try out more of the spinoffs instead, those might do more for me.

Okay, so it's not just me, then. I don't really understand it, but Super Star is giving me a similar experience to the one I had playing Pokemon Y. Like, everything is so short-lived and has so little weight to it that nothing leaves any kind of lasting impression. I've already played 3 game modes and barely feel like I've done anything at all. It's even weaker than Squeak Squad for me so far, and even then, Squeak Squad still had enough going for it to make it feel at least decently complex and memorable. I don't get that at all from Super Star. I'll keep playing it to see if anything changes, but thus far, I don't know why people consider this the best Kirby game other than Planet Robobot.
No matter where you go, there you are.
