Finally just broke down and ordered a copy of Thunder Force IV. Yeah I can emulate it but I own an actual Genesis and CRT so it feels weird to play it any other way. What I sampled previously didn't seem quite as good as 3, but it was still pretty great.


 
 
 

Hello fellow nerds! Virtual goth night lol


 
 
 

Wonder how many Witcher "fans" complaining about CDPR's rainbow logo remember that Ciri is gay? And boy are they gonna be traumatized by Cyberpunk lmao


 
 
 

Got my import of Parodius for Gameboy! I enjoyed the other Gradius Gameboy games, not sure why the system has so few shmups


 
 
 

My girlfriend made me an e-girl...


 
 
 

It's been years since I've blogged, but I just started writing one about diversity in gaming and the excuses we make for not having diverse protagonists. Yeah, you know, I'm starting with something easy and non-controversial for my first time back...

 
 
 

Playing a little of the Mario 64 PC port. I forgot how infuriating this star was to get. Janky camera, janky controls, and the slightest misstep and you slide all the way back down. I want to scream.


 
 
 

The one good thing getting me through lock down has been getting to spend a lot of time with my girlfriend. I am so freaking lucky, she's an amazing person.


 
 
 

They just added Project Warlock & Forsaken Remastered to Twitch Prime finally! (and a few other games in addition to the initial releases this month) Kinda excited because I wanted both of those.


 
 
 
 

I've picked up an NES & 2600... now I just need a proper SNES & I'm about where I want to be. Kinda running out of space. Bottom two shelves have backs so cable management is a bit messy lol. Now to stop buying crap & catch up on playing games!


 
 
 

Got the 2600 set up!! And all the games work after cleaning. That controller is so awful, though. Definitely more fun if you use a Sega Genesis control pad instead (they're compatible). Next up will be an NES, then a real SNES to replace the SupaBoy.


 
 
 

Here's me playing with my girlfriend's kittie Lumen while she was studying #kittentoid



 
 
 

No update on the Cryamore Kickstarter page for over a year :( You know, I don't mind the game being delayed or them having issues. I just wish they'd freaking *communicate* with us. Show some sign of life so we aren't forced to assume the worst.


 
 
 

Getting a new 2600 today so I'm cleaning all my cartridges :) Gotta find room for it on the retro gaming entertainment center later.


 
 
 

I've had a hard time getting into new games lately but somehow DQ Builders 2 got me. The huge demo sold me. It's a bit simple but it feels constantly rewarding & seeing a place grow is satisfying. Hope it continues to be good. I needed a chill game.

 
 
 

I need this as a poster...


 
 
 

I am so burnt out on games right now & nothing is appealing to me :( The last game that really got me was Subnautica Below Zero but that's still in EA. I want to find something to lose myself in so badly but everything bores me and feels like work.

 
 
 

It's interesting looking back through my old EGM's because I come across stuff that never came to fruition. Most consider the Dreamcast the first online console, but apparently Sega was thinking about online as far back as the Genesis (never released)


 
 
 

It's a cliche that every NPC in an RPG has some dumb fetch quest for you to do, and The Outer Worlds sure as hell is adhering to tradition. "HI I KNOW WE JUST MET BUT WOULD YOU PLEASE DO THIS DEEPLY PERSONAL AND DANGEROUS FAVOR FOR ME?!"

 
 
 

Morning, nerds! Gonna finish Castlevania IV and play some more of The Outer Worlds today. What are you quarantine geek plans for the day?


 
 
 

What the actual fuck? This Facebook post was on the 2nd so I don't think it's an April Fools joke. There's an entire website. What a disgrace to the name Atari.


 
 
 

What "retail" therapy have you guys fallen into during the shutdown? I'm trying real hard not to buy a black "Vader" 2600 like I had as a kid. Got a bunch of free games at Half-Price Books so I'm set there for a bit lol. But that PC/retro backlog... :/


 
 
 

I was today years old the first time I quit a game because the music was so bad I couldn't take it. Seriously my ears are still bleeding. Nice port otherwise but just yikes


 
 
 

Everyone is talking up the Series X & PS5's fast SSDs as virtual memory. While useful, my concern is that it sort of points to Sony/MS feeling the systems' 16GB of DDR6 won't be adequate (hence the virtual memory to compensate). Guess we'll see.

 
 


About Jinx 01one of us since 4:26 PM on 11.18.2011

I love gaming, and I have followed the industry and its technology since I was a kid in the 80's. I have gamed primarily on PC since 2000, though I still follow console news and hardware as well.

I worked as a mapper and beta tester for the mod Action Half-Life. I also make custom images for Steam's grid view, those are over on my website.
