I completely missed that GolfTopia got a 1.1 update in August. It's a golf course management sim by one person (and another doing the music), and I wrote a blog on it in March ( https://www.destructoid.com/--650591.phtml )



 
 
 

Yeah, I'd better not bother playing anything beyond one-deck patience on my sofa table. But at least I tried playing a game.


 
 
 

Heard on a Youtube video running in the background an ad saying it's a privilege and *a duty* to play GoW:R if I have a PS. Reason enough for me to never get another PS. (Got 2x PS3.)

 
 
 

Got the first series of Final Girl. It's still dark out there, so now is fine as well.

 
 
 

I have watched only half of this by now, and I'm entertaining the idea of setting myself an upper limit on hours I spend on a game. (Unless it's Xenoblade.)



 
 
 

Well, I bought Cleopatra Fortune on Steam, despite its price. A few thoughts... 1) I'd appreciate a longer grace period before blocks get stuck on where they landed. 2) I'd want to try to do this better. 3) The mystery mode goals are not translated.

 
 
 

I hear Cleopatra Fortune's Saturn port has landed on Switch. Anyone got takes if this is a solid game or not?



 
 
 

I watched a PBS Spacetime video that considered the chance that humans are an early spacefaring civilization. Then I asked which games have humans as Precursors or Ancients, if you will.



 
 
 

This week I became acquainted with Philomena Cunk. How she feels in this video is me when a specific critical thing is still broken.



 
 
 

My entry ranked 19/32 in MSXdev'22. Not unexpected, didn't have much time nor energy to put into this this year.

 
 
 

I have no clue what Marvel Snap is other than a game, but the first thing the name makes me think is playing as someone taking photos of superheroes while riding a tram.

 
 
 

I bought an obvious Flegmabait: Arkanoid - Eternal Battle (physical). Includes an online battle royale mode for 25 players. I gave it a shot. It was me and 24 AI players. And it also had a day-one patch ":thumbsup:"



 
 
 

I saw a video whose title asked if ZX Spectrum Vega+ was the worst crowdfunder in history. I'm wondering if even among gaming system crowdfunders, Intellivision Amico would have that title locked.

 
 
 

Made "more proper" pizza than usual (i.e., base not made of rye bread slices). Rye flour, germ flour, regular wheat flour dough, topped with bratwurst, kale, onion and pineapple.


 
 
 

Liking the first bonus stages in Ex Zodiac more than the main levels. Fingers crossed all-range mode makes no appearance later on...



 
 
 

Still very much disliking Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours.

 
 
 

Cats, 19th century style.



 
 
 

Plateauing.


 
 
 

Yesterday. (Timestamp 1:06, if it doesn't work here.)

Dealing with minor covid symptoms, listening to Eric Idle's That's Death (from a Discworld game), trying to work at least part of the day (home, of course). That's Life. (Flashing colour warning for the video.)



 
 
 

MSXdev'22 got 32 entries this year -- another high number. 9 entries still unknown (arrived on the last day == yesterday), but the point'n'click that's 32MB or so in size is a solid candidate to win.



 
 
 

If there are no birds, only government drones, so what's KFC been feeding you lot?

 
 
 

Finally got the Turrican Collector's Edition for Switch, 25 months after preordering.

 
 
 

I defeated the long tapeworm enemy once in Hyper Demon, but it has defeated me at least twice. And I don't see a training option for it.

 
 
 

I've played over 4h of Hyper Demon this weekend, I have a headache and I cannot stop. This is why I will never amount to anything.
