A New Beginning - Final Cut
There's a decent adventure game in here, but the awkward localization, stiff voice acting, and clunky interface are letting it down hard.

Mega Man Battle Network 4: Red Sun
Look! Plot! The gameplay is finally becoming complex enough to be interesting, and any localization issues are far less obstrusive than before.

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.

Master of Unlocking: Majority of games are completed
You're welcome! It really does feel satisfying to mark a game as beaten or completed!

Sorry for the absurd late reply (didn’t get notified) but I really enjoyed it! Heard good things about it and found it to be the most content-packed Mega Man to date, if a bit repetitive. Really enjoyed Old Style mode a lot too. Something I’ll definitely try to truly 100% in the future, even though some characters are hell to play as like Oil Man

Confused: Playing 10+ games at once
I tried to like it... but everything it does basically tells canon to F off. I don’t get why CBS is doing something so polarizing... I totally get doing the Picard as an admiral series they are working on but the Star Trek name should NOT be put on Discovery. It’s just not Trek. It’s just spitting in the face of all the treks before it... not a bad sci fi show but not a Star Trek.

Oh, and I most certainly have, but while those "get the girl out of her armor" are effortlessly normal to me now, they aren't how I remember Super Metroid. I can blitz Final Fantasy 6 in a day, too, but I remember it being months and months, sometimes dragging myself through the depressive atmosphere that pervades even a good portion of the first half of the game; it was an EXPERIENCE. Same with the first Zelda. Same with The Great Cave Offensive in Kirby Super Star. Same with a lot of games. The point of this moderately-winded ramble is that when I speak of Super Metroid, I'm speaking of that first experience; those cloudy days when gray light spilled through my bedroom window as I explored the similarly-lit Crateria around Wrecked Ship; those sunny afternoons when I'd drown in the eerily soothing dark depths of Maridia; those rainy nights when I'd take a break from roasting in the deepest parts of Maridia to go play a few games of checkers with my grandfather. That is my Super Metroid. I suppose I'm only just now realizing that that's not how most people think about their own personal classics; you've given me something to ponder.

I've seen some truly nightmarish configurations for some of those old computers, like the ZX Spectrum and the Commodore 64. I wouldn't know, though, given that my first computer was an Apple II CE, and my second was a Macintosh Classic (1990); they reigned it in a little. That said, some of them were surprisingly obtuse in their actual design; I remember an old Lord of the Rings game in which I couldn't figure out how to exit the first damn room. All I got was "SAM WAITS" "MERRY WAITS" "PIPPIN WAITS" "FRODO WAITS", thought to be honest, it was a long time ago, and there could also have been a "GANDALF WAITS". Those old text parsers were goddamn brutal until you'd beaten at least one of them, learning what kinds of commands to enter, and what kinds of moon logic to expect. I once ruined dinner by shoving a screwdriver handle-deep into a ham, because I thought that I just really needed a porkscrew for something. I'm pretty sure that didn't actually happen... I was tempted to say that it was the inverse of what you were thinking, but then I remembered that prior to that, games were things like Dungeons & Dragons. Either way, there is a pretty vast difference between old PC and old console games, even within the same genres.

Yeah original Metroid is definitely primitive compared to almost every other entry in the series. I think i had a hard time w/ it a few years ago due to being too familiar with the GBA entries that i had played around the same time, but it wasn't too bad this time thankfully
No matter where you go, there you are.
