Hitman series update: Just finished Contracts. So far it's easily my favorite of the bunch. Blood Money is all set up, running at 1440p and looking nice. On to the second mission and from what I can see, this looks like it might be the best one.

 
 
 
 

Decided to play the Killzone games. Buy the Trilogy on eBay. Seller uses slowest shipping option available. Wait two weeks. The first game doesn't run off disc. Tries to install. Fails every time at 5%. Give up. Buy game again on PSN. Miss N64 carts.

 
 
 

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin is really cool... and also a huge reminder of why stealth based games always disappoint me. AI is hard. So far the best missions are the ones that spell out the solution for you - like the one with the 2 car bombs.

 
 
 

The first Hitman (Codename: 47) is uh, it's a bit rough. I can see why it took off though - it's a pretty complex game for the era it came out in. That said, it's a janky mess too.

 
 
 

My last qpost went over like a lead balloon, so I'm gonna change it up: Give me your opinions of these 3 collections because I've never played any of them. Jak and Daxter Collection (PS3), Sly Collection (PS3), and The Ratchet and Clank Collection (PS3).

 
 
 

I'm hooked on Breath of Fire II (GBA) finally (dropped it shortly after I started it). Although that encounter rate is a beast. I will forever prefer on-screen enemies. Forever. Anyway, Just finished up the Witch Tower, probably halfway? Loving it so far.

 
 
 

Just finished Grand Theft Auto Advance. It wasn't terrible (though the framerate was - we're talking sub 10fps the whole time). It's got me wanting to play 1 and 2, plus the London expansions, as those are the only ones I've never finished or played.

 
 
 
 

Blazing Lazers was fun... up until level 8 and 9. That bubble level sucked! I've slowed down on my Shmup conquests for sure, but next up I want to try to play the Thunder Force series. Also still have R-Type Delta and Final to finish, as well as Gradius V

 
 
 

@Tricerapops Just 100% completed Astro Boy: Omega Factor! I couldn't put it down and while I thought playing it twice would be some terrible slog, it turns out the 'real' game starts after the first ending. What a joy! The framerate was the only bad part!

 
 
 

Ok, just finished Red Faction II in one sitting (both in one day!) Not even close to as bad as I read it would be. Both games are a 5/10. To be honest, I enjoyed II more, but they both sort of sucked. Now back to Guerrilla guilt free and caught up.

 
 
 

I guess I just accidentally played the entire first Red Faction today. I know I played this back in the day... but did I ever finish it? Oh well, I just did. Solid 5/10 game (on the D'toid scale). Or maybe it was 2 I played? Just bought 2, let's find out.

 
 
 
 

A Short Hike was a short joy, and I finally finished Red Dead Revolver yesterday after a long hiatus. Somehow my new Ryzen 3400G is better at PS2 emulation than my FX8350. I mean it makes sense, but somehow I still didn't think it'd be stronger...

 
 
 

The custom MiniITX case is 'mostly' done. Here's a bad night shot. I'll post more another day and some with the lid off. But first I sleep.


 
 
 

How do we all feel about Lords of Shadow? I'm finally setting out to finish it (I've had 4 false starts on this one), but I'm finally at about the halfway point (just played chess with the creepy vamp girl). I like the scenery and the story. The game...

 
 
 

One hundo done with Boxboy! + Boxgirl!. Except S rank levels. I hope this is it for the series. I like the games, and I love trying to break the puzzles and finish with as few blocks as possible, but I've had my fill after 4 games. How bout another Pushmo

 
 
 

Steam Pro Tip: I just got Dishonored (Deluxe), Dishonored 2 (Deluxe), and Prey (deluxe), for the same cost as the Dishonored Complete Collection. It's 23 dollars for the DCC, and somehow 7 dollars less to buy the 2 games complete, separately + Prey Deluxe

 
 
 

Decided out of the blue to build a custom PC case for my new Ryzen build in the living room. While it isn't quite finished, all the hard work is done and now it's just finesse stuff like painting the plexiglass and staining the wood. Pics when it's done!

 
 
 

New era for my living-room PC. So long 7850k! Got in just under 7 hundo. Not great... Not bad either. Time to put it in the Nintendo PC.


 
 
 

Now I remember why I stopped playing Blaster Master Zero 2... it hits this huge difficulty spike out of nowhere. Must persevere. Must finish game...

 
 
 

Just plowed through the Fairune Collection on Steam. I highly recommend this series to people who like Zelda games(be warned it's way simpler though, but some of the puzzles are brilliant). Also, my Steam sale haul in the comments.

 
 
 
 

Golden Axe marathon this morning. Not my favorite series. Easily ranked: 3>2>1. The third one was the only truly fun title as far as I can tell. Anyway, I should get back to Mega Man 10 - only Wily's castle left to do.
