Been playing Disaster: Day of Crisis (2008) on Wii and streaming it. Interesting to see how the studio's games had a hard time getting to NA on Wii. In hindsight, the one that did make it to NA (Xenoblade) is the better game of the two.

 
 
 

I remember hearing something like that our music taste "peaks" when we're 13/14. How well does that work with you and video games?

 
 
 

I've been playing more and more NintendoLand this past week. And only now that I finally beat the Donkey Kong obstacle course, I learned that I can press X instead of blowing into the microphone. Still loving Balloon Trip Breeze.



 
 
 

Found a bunch of drawings I made about fifteen years ago. I cannot imagine how I could've drawn anything that "carefree" or "happy".

 
 
 

And that's Job Island finished. Silly plot, decent and bad minigames, no heroism the way I hoped to see... so probably no BoB entry on this game.

 
 
 

TIL it's possible to feel nostalgic for old ice cream cones from 1980s -- ones where the ice cream had made the wafer soggy and chewy.

 
 
 

FWIW, the BoB prompt made me finally play this game. Minigame hard-working heroes, who buy stuff from TV Shopping Channel to earn points to buy a transformation ring to save the planet from asteroids or so.


 
 
 

Still wearing the basic Citizen Eco-Drive I got 20 years and a month ago as a gift. Some maintenance has been needed, but I hope it'll last the next 20 years as well.

 
 
 

I spotted a Ubisoft-published bundle of Fallouts 1, 2 and Tactics on my shelf. People who have played both FO3 and later, and Ubisoft open-world games -- do you think Ubisoft's Fallouts would've been worse or better than what came to be?

 
 
 

I thought I would give every Mario game I have an hour to prove my opinion of them wrong this summer. Then I understood I don't owe those games a thing.

 
 
 

1) Never trust what people say on review comments ("MM2 doesn't require online pass to download levels"). 2) As far as I can tell, MM2's pack-in levels still aren't fun. 3) Need to pass this game to someone, but none of my friends have the Ninty Online.

 
 
 

Thinking about doing a writeup on Bitlogic - A Cyberpunk Arcade Adventure (2019) as the resident MSX fan. The short of it: try the free digital MSX version first.



 
 
 

Get an e-mail that something's been done, say "thank you" aloud to the person and then realise he's not in the same room. When did the summer holidays start again...

 
 
 

We've gone from waiting a game to load for 15 minutes to waiting in-game for a crate to unlock for an hour.

 
 
 

Three hours of fishing, got one pike (about 1kg). My first in 30 years, and tomorrow's lunch. A bit more than I can say for whatever I caught in Go Vacation.

 
 
 

Yesterday I would've had kind words for Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human. Today I wonder why the devs added battles to it, as they kill any fun I've had with the game.

 
 
 

If you're a danmaku fan, maybe check if Rolling Gunner (at least on Switch) would strike your fancy.

 
 
 

The Judgment I want to play is Castlevania Judgment -- it can't be too bad, if got here as good a score as Link Between Worlds. (And I really *do* want to play Castlevania Judgment.)

 
 
 

I began mariekondoing my Switch data. Deleting save games for demos, FO Shelter, BotW, Odyssey, FE Warriors, Gems of War and all the shitty games I won't get back to is unbelievably tedious, but feels liberating.

 
 
 

If I could cut away gaming from myself like a tumor or a nine-meter Groulien bile worm, I would significantly reduce the hate I contain. And reduce my BMI by 20.

 
 
 

Well, that was a 10h Youtube ad I just skipped.

 
 
 

Outdated "horror": A TV comedy show had sketch with a big pool of postcards from the "viewers", and the "guests" were asked to pick one from there to be read aloud. One by one they waded in there and were lost underneath the cards.

 
 
 

So... I got NES Mini, SNES Mini, ZX Spectrum Vega, THEC64 Mini, an Atari Flashback and I'm thinking of getting that Megadrive Mini and now this PC Engine Mini, too. The ones I have are in a storage box. Yet I still want Master System Mini to be, too.

 
 
 

If Doom Eternal had Icon of Sin like in Doom 2, whose head would be inside?

 
 
 

Watching E3 has again been more fun than playing games.

Very much unprofessional writer, don't take anything I write without a truckload of salt.

On a hopefully long-term break from saying anything.
