Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade
A good expansion that adds a welcome amount of variety to the game. Some of the single-player scenarios seem unreasonably difficult, though.

Mega Man Battle Network 4: Red Sun
I've never been wild about Battle Network's gameplay, and fatigue is finally setting in. A rough localization doesn't do the game any favors.

Playing this with my wife. It's Oregon Trail IN SPAAAAAAAAACE but with a sense of humor and some new mechanics. Great stuff.

JOEL! JOEL! ARE YOU DOWNLOADING NICKELS AGAIN!? I couldn't resist. I agree that there is a certain art to placing such elements in a stage, but as even the judges admitted, several entrants do not have a firm grasp on that art; it might be a bit too much power to place into their hands. Like, there should've been some kind of veto power, like with the skip teleporters.

Most likely; that's something that I didn't do, largely because I didn't expect what happened to happen. I like ridiculous payoffs, though; I may pick that back up at some point. *looks at total* SOME point.

I started at the bottom and worked my way up, since getting the bad levels out of the way first seemed like the smart thing to do; nobody likes that part of Pac-Man where you have 12 dots left over, scattered all about and no Power Pellets. Quarantine Woman, eh? Did someone already write my biography? :thissitereallyneedsasmirkemoticon:

I may take you up on that; right now, I have a hell of a lot of games to finish, though.

Yeah, I have planned on having that save point. I have managed to avoid all spoilers so far, barring the fact that you get married. Looking forward to seeing how things play out.

Were those the floating star things? I found 4, but only one energy element, so I suspect that there was another path that I missed. OH! I am morbidly curious, though: what the fizzityuck determined where those would show up? I remember seeing some even in the levels that were bad enough to get the judges to rant incessantly about them. I assume that the energy elements were just different exits.

The skip teleporters were a little misplaced, I thought; there were a few levels that really needed them, but there was at least one that I completed legitimately without any real difficulty. I think that the game just wasn't my kind of thing; truthfully, you are the only reason that I did play either of them. I'll have to keep that in mind.

I'm really enjoying it so far, especially since it is so familiar to DQVIII which I just finished. I haven't gotten to the point of getting a wife yet. I just got to the second part of the game, and am abusing the casino.

So, I just couldn't drag myself through all of Make a Good Mega Man Level Contest 2. It's not much of a contest if everyone wins, if you ask me, but I did make it a point to play your level, and I did enjoy it. You probably earned that "absolute dickhead" comment from one of the judges, but that was one of my favorite parts of the level.

Of course I don't mind if you add me, in fact I added you back. I'd be more than happy to see how your progress is coming in your backlog and it's always nice to watch active users on here (especially since none of my friends use it).

I've tried using the fortune cookie to decide my destiny and sometimes it works but I'm also pretty fickle about things like that. If I get it in my head that the drawn game is not what I want to play I'm not going to enjoy picking it up and then sometimes I find myself refreshing the cookie over and over. At those times there is something specific I definitely want to play but I just can't figure out what it is.

I actually have seen Cute Demon Crashers before as I have been following the visual novel subreddit for years I just never got around to playing it. I guess the same could be said about all itchio releases. I don't tend to look at the itchio storefront much and I've never actually used it before.

And since you brought up Oh, a Rock! Studios? I am really interested in that pizza delivery VN coming out soon. It reminds me of a comic I found at a convention a few years ago called Buffalo Speedway. [Link] I bought it on a whim from the artist's booth and was pleasantly surprised by it. It's a comic about the busiest pizza day ever from a guy who was a pizza delivery guy for a big chunk of his life.

I've had a pretty poor month in terms of gaming though. I had a friend over for a week and have mostly been playing warframe with her since she went back home. I'll have to get back on track with my backlog next month because I'm still trying to shave it down by the end of the year.

No matter where you go, there you are.
