Dang, sounds like everything about it is better except replayability. The first game was really easy the first time around, but I enjoyed how it kept giving me more and more new toys; then destroyer mode was a really awesome hard mode with the remixed item placement and specific enemy vulnerabilities. The DLC characters were also easy, but they changed how the game was played, so still fun.

Shame hearing BMZ2 lacks these features, but it's not too late for them to be added in. However, with LRG printing the first game I wonder if I should just wait for 2 to get a physical release. Though, I wouldn't mind double dipping on it.

Ooh, Blaster Master Zero 2. Recently binged the first game hard after it hit all the right notes with me, Zero 2 looks like a big step up from the little I've seen, would you agree?

For a while now I've been wondering what to do about the Nintendo Switch Online NES games now that I'm playing one of them. I've decided I will only add games to my backlog that I have decided to play. Because adding all of them right now would be an awkward, sudden milestone of 1250 total games, and also a lot of them I've played on other formats so they'd be null anyway.

The game I have been playing is Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. The only exclusive japanese game in the catalogue. To be able to play it, I simply made a separate nintendo account with the region set to Japan and I was able to download the Famicom app. No need to purchase separate access to the online membership.

I really, really wanted to quit it. But it always seemed possible to do. Always so close to getting it, then getting kicked down again... Most of my frustration comes from the fact that the game just doesn't work the way it should most of the time (being on a timer made this especially frustrating).
There will be games I eventually give up on as I deem them not worth my time, but I do want to give them the fairest of shots

Sorry to hear it about LEGO Star Wars, btw. It's one of my favorite games from back then

True that. I haven't made use of the status for a while now because it makes me lose motivation I think. I prefer jumping straight to s.

Yep!
Dragon style if the thing you want to get ASAP. It will make the combat encounters a breeze and make it a lot faster to get through those.
Useful for grinding and generally skipping.
Grinding Majima is tedious though, as getting him to spawn isn't always that easy...

Colonial Marines, huh?
It always looked fun to me, but it got slammed hard. How is it?

Still stuck in prison, eh?

Beaver Bother, yeah. I don't remember how long it took me, but it was frustrating at one point.
I know. I just wanted all the banana numbers to be even to show that I really did collect everything
Your comment honestly convinced me to not care about it anymore and just finish the game. Would only have to defeat K. Rool and no longer worry about two bunches of bananas
Thanks?

It's a lot of fun for the most part, until you have to do certain minigame objectives. As fun as they are, they are incredibly frustrating and usually luck based. Tasks on the Completion Log generally range from tedious and mundane, to ungodly unforgiving. I'm not completely familiar with Yakuza 0's Completion List, but according to comments I've read online, it is much worse than Kiwami's (and Kiwami was a serious slog/really tough).
Of course, the games are always fun to play regardless, so you will play them

I agree. That's the one reason why I haven't felt like going back to it to get the remaining 1% and complete it. I'm only missing like two bunches of bananas or so, but I swear I looked everywhere and just can't find them
I never minded the Tag Barrel function much, but now that I think about it, I think I would like the game a whole lot more if switching Kongs was more convenient. So you're definitely right.

Let me guess: the mini game you skipped was the last beaver challenge?
I think that's the only one I haven't done yet either; or actually I might have, I'm not sure.
It's one of the better games on N64 for sure, and one of the games that immediately comes to mind when I think about it.

If you thought Kazooie was great, you're definitely going to enjoy Tooie since it's more of the same, but with even more content while retaining the pacing. Well, kind of. The worlds are kind of massive compared to the first, though I feel they're more dense with content than DK64. The second half of the game can be confusing to get around since there will be so much going on at that point in the game - at least that's what I remember. It's been a good decade or so since I last really got into it and beat it for the first time (never completed it though; I intend to replay it and get 100% someday).

Putting weapons behind the gigolo missions is kind of weird, but if they didn't there would be almost no reason to try them at all. They do have the decency of making the most important one, the drill, the first thing you unlock. The others are really unnecessary in normal play and only show any usefulness when trying to play as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The final battle is pretty spectacular, and that remix of From the New World, perfect. As for combos, it's always fun to build up to faster and flashier attacks, but I would cancel out of the last hit in the max combo moveset because it takes too long. I do believe that gives a good boost to DPS.

Hey! Yeah, it's a really simple trick, but I watched a playthrough back when the game came out and nearly screamed at the fact the players never stumbled upon it. Combat is super simple, but like I said, there's just enough meat on that bone to make it enjoyable. At a higher level the game becomes less about fighting stylishly and racking up points than it does about developing the most optimal strategies for each encounter and enemy type to rush through with no damage. Pretty addicting to go for top scores that way...

I want to take a second here to brag that I was the number 3 top player on the leaderboards back around release (when you get past all the people who hacked their scores to an impossible maxed number). I know at least one guy passed me at some point by a small amount, but I never did easy mode and scores across all stack IIRC so I could've easily come back, I think.

Sorry for the late response, I've been slacking on updating my account for the past month, as you can see from my caught-up memory card...

I am INVINCIBLE. For the first time in over three YEARS. I'd celebrate by buying some games but anything I want isn't out yet or I should probably wait for a sale. Progress on games has been unexpectedly speedy. I guess it's my speedrunner instincts knocking out games in just a few hours. I may be on pace to actually have my backlog be less than half unfinished. I didn't even dare set a goal that high back in November. I thought it would be much harder to reach 50.5% yet here we are.

Still though, that's really cool
I'm glad you're crushing games just like that, even if they're a little short.

Tell me, how do you feel about Shenmue?
I've been meaning to play it myself, but current playthroughs and such are keeping me busy for the moment.
