Oh, nice. Sonic Colors (Wii) is actually pretty decent so far! Go figure.


Stayed up late to finish Sonic and the Black Knight. Honestly, this one would have been fine without waggle controls, and was generally an improvement over the Secret Rings. But seriously though, when are Sonic and Amy going to just fuck already?


OK. This is a joke right? Sonic and the Secret Rings wasn't ACTUALLY a game that people developed and spent a portion of their life working on. It can't be. It isn't real and I refuse to believe it. IT'S TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN!


I finished Sonic Heroes and thought there's no way it could get worse. Well folks, Shadow the Hedgehog is off my backlog now too and my fucking god. MY GOD. What a mess. I'm speechless. Who thought this was a good idea?! HOW DID THIS GET MADE? 06 is next!


I just finished Knuckles' Chaotix (NOT a good 2D Sonic game unfortunately). This marks the completion of every single 2D Sonic game that isn't a spin-off. 24 games. It's the 3D mess from here on out.


Sonic Series progress: Advance 2 and 3 done. Sonic Rush done, and just about wrapped up on Rush Adventures. Just did a few more levels in Heroes. The Adv. games are genuinely great, Rush Adventures is way better than 1, and Heroes is profoundly terrible.


Two more games down in my Sonic... adventure. Sonic Labyrinth and Sonic the Hedgehog: Pocket Adventure. The former was a mildly decent 30 minute distraction, but Pocket Adventure is a new series favorite. It's based of 2 sure, but it stands on its own! <3


I decided yesterday I'd get back to my comprehensive Sonic 2D AND 3D series run. Played Sonic Chaos, Sonic Blast, Sonic 3D Blast, a bit of Chaotix, and a few levels of Heroes today. I say again: Sonic fans love picking pieces of corn out of piles of shit.


Hot take time: TimeSplitters 2 gets all the attention, but Future Perfect was a better game by almost every observable metric. Was it just a too little too late thing at the end of a generation?


Six levels in and Nightmare Creatures is exactly the sort of terrible janky game I was in the mood for. It's bad, but in a sort of good way.


I might need to set right a VERY old wrong. I rented Nightmare Creatures as a kid and never finished it. Do I emulate the PS1/N64 version or do the PC port? Not a lot of info on the version differences. Any Nightmare Creatures nerds out there?


Got the urge to play TimeSplitters. Never did the first one so I just ran through that really quick in PCSX2. Uh, this "game" is basically a proof of concept demo! Wow! No wonder we all only ever talk about the second one. 9 barebones levels. No story. Ha


I'm gonna tackle the small fish first before even thinking about the PS3 library, so in the comments I'll list the Vita games I own already, and then the ones I'm on the fence about. Help me finalize my Vita library!


Messing around with my new Mayflash DolphinBar on PC and what's the first thing I finish? Link's Crossbow Training. Not bad! Maybe I need more lightgun games - I see House of the Dead 2&3 are an option, as well as the Resident Evil Chronicles games. Sure!


I'd like to remind everyone that they're expected to be at the all council meeting this morning at 10am. There will be refreshments.


I'm starting to feel like GCN/Wii emulation is in good enough a place to start backing up all my games and moving over to PC for future replays. Transfered my saves, am backing up my discs, and just grabbed one of those Mayflash Dolphin bars and it works!


A couple years back I started the Gamecube Fire Emblem game on my lovely light blue/green console. Yesterday I decided to backup my saves via the hacked Wii I use on my CRT, and get back to the game... but with Dolphin instead! What? Save States? nuh uh.


So Origami King is definitely better than Color Splash so far. It's also really pretty, and I love the lighting improvements in the engine. Same great world building and writing too. But the battle system is a total non sequitur right? It just, exists?


Just finished Color Splash. What an AWFUL final boss fight. Ugh. So that means I have 1 game left on the Wii U to finish. But in looking at my physical games collection, I realize I actually only have a few games left unfinished. Crazy! I'll list inside:


Spent most of the day yesterday getting back to Color Splash and finding my bearings after a long hiatus. Nintendo really doesn't understand this franchise. CS is great... if you completely remove the 'rpg' battles. I love everything else here. Really.


Finished Secret of Mana! I think I ended up liking it, but I don't take back any of the things I said about how janky it is. Started up Trials but it's asking me to pick a character and that gives me the FOMO sweats so. Maybe a series break for now.


While I haven't been loving Secret of Mana, it's been enjoyable enough up until you get the ability to fly around the map. Everything since then has been an absolute slog. So close to the end though. I hear the final boss is overly difficult too. Yay!
