★★★★★ A semi open world game focusing on Japanese culture in the 1980s, and the life of yakuza members. You can beat people mercilessly, dance at a disco, sing karaoke, watch softcore porn, and play pool, darts, or mahjong, and a lot more. It's insanely good and worth any price if you can get into it.

I have managed to finally rip myself away from WWE 2K14, because I'm really trying to make progress on stuff this year. Plus, the actual game play is so stale and boring that I don't enjoy it anymore. I can't even get into the irl wrestling now because I just want to play a game where I can make it like I want it to. So, I should probably get on that.

Unfortunately, I have this thing where I want the first game that I play on a console to be a game that I've been dying to try. I don't think Fire Pro fits that description, and I will not be "blow away" with the Playstation 4 with that particular game. So, once I can get around to playing my first PS4 game, then I can jump into that. As always, who knows when that will be.

Hey, happy new year!

I didn't totally hate Odallus. It was good enough to beat. I think Castlevania 1 is one of the best games for that classic retro feeling, so Odallus had impossibly high standards to live up to. I have another game by the same devs called Oniken, which I think is supposed to be their take on Contra-styled action. I'll have to see if I get the same problems from that one too.

That sounds amazing! You can download other people's creations ala WWE 2K? I don't suppose you know if they will ever take the servers down like 2K always does? I don't want to miss my chance to grab all of those guys, but I can't even imagine when I'll get around to it, sadly.

Yep. I was talking about it before. I am aware mechanics have changed heavily between games, with gimmicks and all. But with that other information between you guys, I have a better understanding of what I'm up against. The more you know...

I mean, I can be quite a stubborn guy at times, always hanging on the things I catch onto. Coming from playing too much N64 Smash and just getting into Melee. The very least I acknowledged was the fact that I'll want to main differently.

I actually bought the new one! It will be my first of the series. I'm really hoping that there is a lot of fulfilling gameplay in the series. I've only ever heard it being heralded for it's customization options, and to be honest, I'm pretty crap when it comes to stuff like that. I've heard of it throughout the years, but I've never been able to understand why the graphics have never been souped up? I don't know much about it, but once they put those NJPW guys in the game and gave them the cover-treatment - well, I'm pretty much a huge mark for that.

As always with me, it will be forever and ever before I ever play it unfortunately. I can't get off my freaking WWE 2K14, and only because it has the nWo guys that I grew up on.

I beat Odallus, but I can't say I like it very much. Certainly doesn't compare to the Castlevania games I've played.

While playing Odallus, I got this weird feeling--what I'd call a "retro game uncanny valley"--where it seemed like I was playing a retro Castlevania game, though too much was off-putting for it to maintain a natural feeling. The level design was often wide-open and empty, which is so different from the dense and compact level design in early castlevania games.

The script was written so strangely, and I wasn't sure if it was done on purpose to poke fun at English translations of the early game industry or if the Odallus devs just had bad localization skills for English. That's another risk with retro-inspired modern throwback games: sometimes you can't tell if bad or archaic design is done unintentionally or done on purpose "ironically" to reference tropes. There's a lot of good tropes and references in this game, but the script was so bizarre I still can't tell if it's intentional or not.

I also got stuck in an idiotic way, so that costed me an hour too. I didn't mind the overall difficulty except when it felt like more bugs and quirks came around in the final bossfight than anywhere else in the game.

Finally wound up with two Kickstarter backer keys; probably the only two new games I'm going to end up with this year. Think I'm gonna put Quake and Bionic Commando: Rearmed on hold for now while I give these a go. Woot.

Hey folks. I've decided to finally do one of those 'Recommendation Station' things. I've already gotten some idea but if you're not busy, take a look through my list and toss me some ideas. Anything on Steam or Xbox is what I'd be looking for. Thank you.

I see you have high praise for Odallus. I think I'll make it the next Steam game I play!

Haha, congrats.

And yes, I am aware that the other skill levels are higher in speed, as per the video at the end. I felt like the hardest fast bits I've done were when there were brawlers. May have to use both my index fingers if it's gotten worse.

Oh, One Finger Death Punch! Did I mention I have beaten that game about a month ago? Welp, on student mode that is. Very thrilling but very difficult game. Seriously, if that later section of Student Mode is that difficult, I can't fathom how the other two skill levels would look like. Even on it's upcoming sequel...

Unless of course, it's just me - Lacking them bonus powerups whatever-you-call-them

So, admittedly after my discovery of RetroAcheivements I have become rather obsessed with that in the last month, and have made absolutely zero progress on my Backlog. Any spare time I have had I was playing emulated SNES games for achievements and not playing Steam or Xbox or anything else. Well now I think I need to re-focus a bit and get back to the battle against

So to lighten up my totals a bit, I have gone and removed all of the Wii virtual console titles from my backlog. Since I lost my original Wii and got a new one, I don't actually have them anymore. I had kept the listing of them solely because I had planned on re-purchasing them at some point. I now no longer have any reason to do so.

I also removed a couple of my WiiWare titles, for the same reason. The ones I removed I can obtain on other platforms. I do plan on re-purchasing a couple of them at some point before the Wii Shop closes down next year.

The reason I have no need for the VC titles anymore is I have become a member of the RetroAchievements site. You play ROMs of old games via emulators and get achievements in them like you do in modern games. There is support for plenty of older titles and its quite fun. I encourage anyone interested to go to their site and look me up under the same username. Cheers!

That's probably the best strategy to whittle down our backlog that's for sure. I was very tempted to buy something else off the eShop this week but Horizon instead.
