Busy day. Played R-Type III, R-Type Leo, Salamander, Salamander 2, Xexex, started R-Type Delta, and am almost finished with Ape Escape 1. Yesterday was Metal Slug Advance and Iridion II off the backlog. Lots of games, lots of Pew Pew Pew!

 
 
 

Gradius 1 - Tough but fair. Gradius II - Just plain tough. Gradius III - Tough and unfair. Gosh I hope IV and Gaiden aren't this hard. Gradius III is kicking my ass. There's a reason it's considered one of the hardest games ever made, huh? Halfway there.

 
 
 

This thing is cool. Now I have a Vita with real L2 and R2 buttons and it fits with the tempered glass I just put on. Too bad it's extremely ugly and kills the nice design of the Slim. Form v Function I guess.


 
 
 

I guess I'm doing a Klonoa series run now. Halfway through the WonderSwan game... my first, and likely last WonderSwan game (the only other title I could find that looked worth playing, Judgment Silversword, has a PC port). I loved the first one!

 
 
 

I've hacked my 3DS and now my Vita. I feel like I finally "own" these consoles, if that makes sense. Breath of Fire 1 is finished, and now it's on to BoFII on 3DS. On the Vita... it's oh god all these PS1 RPGs. I guess I'll start with Chrono Cross?

 
 
 

Spending money on an original GBA to mod and use with an Everdrive GBA: A Cautionary Tale... in the comments. TL:DR - Hack your N3DS, save yourself a headache.

 
 
 

I'm not sure what this thing is... but I have one coming in the mail tomorrow. I think they call it a Velveeta? I don't know. I hear it plays PS1 games.


 
 
 

I really like Dragon Quest... so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that I'm totally enjoying Breath of Fire on my GBA. It's basically a poor man's DQ.

 
 
 

Just finished Splinter Cell: Conviction. I'm pretty sure my ranking of the series will ascend with release order. Conviction ran like shit on my PC, but it was the most fun I've had with the series yet. On to Blacklist sans Ironside. MGSV all over again..

 
 
 

For some reason I'm enjoying the "bad" version of Splinter Cell Double Agent more than any of the games that have come before it. Do I... do I have bad taste in games? Or is everyone else out of touch?

 
 
 

Splinter Cell has been less than stellar so far and I apparently just finished the best one. If it's all downhill from Chaos Theory then I'm worried. I like these games on paper, but so far they've been nothing but frustrating, and glitchy as hell.

 
 
 

Ok I'm at Splinter Cell Chaos Theory now... apparently the good one! And yes, it's already the best one just because it actually works with a controller so no more mouse wheel to adjust walking speed. Keyboard and mouse IS NOT always better, KB/M nerd.

 
 
 
 

I'm gonna do an April Fools goof and announce that a Steam in-home streaming app is coming to the Switch because I think it's a great idea and wish it was real. You've been goof'd suckers.

 
 
 

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Quick Load: The Game.

 
 
 

Yoshi's Crafted World fixes a handful of my biggest issues with the series: no waste of time mini games at the end of levels, bosses are their own stages on the map, you don't have to press down to turn enemies to eggs, and aiming no longer auto moves.

 
 
 

I snapped into a Slim Jim yesterday for the first time in over a decade, and the shriveled condom filled with beach sand and mealy cow ankles has ravaged my insides. It was a joke birthday gift and certainly not edible. Never again Mr. Savage. Never again

 
 
 

Bloodborne Diary Day 2: Summoned some Henriette lady. Killed a lot of tall goth dudes. Ran from some other dudes with electric things. Killed a big girl beast in bandages named Amelia. Used all my Molotovs and throwing knives to do it.

 
 
 

Bloodborne Diary Day 1: Killed a thing on a bridge. Killed a dude in a graveyard. Killed an asshole with a machine gun on a cathedral tower (pushed him off!). Bought an expensive key. I'll see what's behind the door next time!

 
 
 

Decided to finally start Bloodborne. Here we go...

 
 
 

I think I've only ever played the first two Splinter Cell games.... so anyway I just bought them all on Steam whoops...

 
 
 

Should I buy Sekiro or play Bloodborne for the first time?

 
 
 

What's the subtlest way to let everyone know it's my birthday without making it obvious?

 
 
 

Don't put soldering irons near your phone kids. Shit.

 
 
 

So Yoshi's New Island is fine? And it's one of the nicer looking games to turn the 3D on for. Why do people hate this game? It's 100 times better than DS so far. Woolly World still da MVP of course. Wow... I've really done a serious 180 with this series.
