Capcom Arcade Stadium: FINAL FIGHT
It's shorter than I first imagined, and that's for the better. Bosses' final phases BStery aside, still an awesome game.

☆☆★★★ I swear it looks better with low graphics specs :P I know this may sound ironic... But a bit of polish would make this a very interesting game. Once you get the hang of the rhythm it's intended to be played it feels pretty good. The build-buffs risk-reward system may be on to something... The "hint" system is a neat way to integrate the plot to level design and gameplay. Some levels/bosses have cool gimicry too, but mostly outstay their welcome and are poorly/cheaply executed.

Despite always drooling over the screenshots in mags at the time I never tried a game in the series. It looks (and specially sounds) fantastic. Equipment/levels really make a difference--feels rewarding, but encourages grinding all the same. Well, the twin trees are intact. Now gotta find a place for that key?

Thank you for your message. You seem to be nearing 1000 game clears yourself!

I'd like to hear your final thoughts on Mighty No 9. I haven't returned to it since it came out. I was certainly hoping for a better game, but I felt like it was firmly average for the standards of a game that did have "Mega Man" in the title. I was reminded of that dash system when I played this year's Gravity Circuit, where you can grapple near-death enemies and throw them. Since Gravity Circuit is a game with primarily melee-range combat, I think it fits better there since you're already in their face.

Castlevania II has definitely grown on me and I can appreciate what it was trying to do. I have to wonder how cryptic or not-cryptic the original Japanese script was and how it would have affected the experience.
Glad you like my blerbs.

I was looking at your runs and saw you had a high score world record in Kirby's Pinball Land? Damn, kudos! I have a love-hate relationship with that one; it's frustrating as hell but I like the style and presentation so much.

Returned your add on Steam. Nice FTL guitar cover you have there.
If you ever want to get back into FTL, I highly recommend trying out the various mods out there. They add a whole new dimension to the game, especially 'mega mods' like Captain's Edition and Multiverse.
