So... I wrote a blog. I don't remember if the Dtoid user most likely to know the game actually left the site some years ago. Or what their name was. Maybe check it out if you like danmaku.


This week, I considered making a decision of not buying a game in any game series for one year. Then I remembered I still got that Turrican thing preordered and coming eventually. So... I suppose I'll have to make that an exception.


I got mail. Retro Annual 2020. Not as thick as 8-Bit Annuals 2019 and 2018. My game got review score of 6/10, so worse than Link between Worlds.


Decided to continue with Zip Lash. Oh dear, I had forgot how much I hated the button placement on 3DS (mine is New 3DS XL), and I fight against the build of the system more than the platforming challenge (level 2-1).


Sometimes, I look at what I "achieved" in my past lives, and wonder if I should return to the well to find a modicum of contentment.


Got back to playing my likely most-played roguelite on Switch: Has-Been Heroes. Some design decisions bother me... such as adding an extra map to the run after each "win", and after six wins, I still haven't finished the story.


I forgot I can play Style Boutique (DS) on Wii U VC. Time to try finishing it...


That's Hey! Pikmin done, or at least the credits rolled. Not a memorable game, but that description fits nearly every game. Next up, either trying to find all items or finishing Zip Lash.


Been wondering if I should give Antstream or Evercade (rather, the upcoming TV-bound system) a shot. Anyone here with experience about the former?


This game's name is the kind of solution to the discoverability problem that I'd like to use.


No day like today to get the government on the brink of resignation and also decide the approval of the big EU funding thing doesn't require just half of the given votes but 2/3 of given votes. Which would, AFAIK, foil the whole deal throughout the EU.


These lemon biskvis didn't turn out the way I hoped. The bottom isn't hard enough, the lemon/butter filling wasn't shaped to match the bottom and the white chocolate coating doesn't cover all sides of the mess.


Bought "Rain on Your Parade". From raining on everyone in a wedding, to forcing the evacuation of an Office due to a fire at Umbrella City, it's been... amusing so far. I've never played Donut County or Untitled Goose Game.


Not sure I get the point of these "lo fi chill beats videos". This one alone was enough for me the first time.


Jeremy Irons and Spock. Margin Call (2011). Also, 2008. Also, 2021. And a meeting I wish I'll never have to be in.


Are old PAL consoles (8/16-bit) and their games less valued/valuable than their 60Hz siblings? I mean specifically the original physical products, not the later digital rereleases.


I received a package, took a photo of it, but am too lazy to post it here. It just contained a binder for a retro gaming magazine.


What distinguishes F-Zero as an IP from other futuristic racing IPs and makes it so beloved? (Futuristic racing isn't really my cup of tea, so my experience in that genre is limited.)


Maybe today, now that I've played some board games, I might appreciate Pax Romana (Galiléa / DreamCatcher, 2003) a bit more. Not enough to tolerate the bugs, but...


I haven't really kept up with the news, but I understand there's shortage of electronics components or something? Hypothetical scenario: Nintendo releases the "Switch Pro" in, say, early June. What would happen?


MSXdev'21 entry no. 4: Tortilla Sunrise, by Tortilla Yonkers. This is also the first time I've seen an MPAGD game (multiplatform arcade game designer) in MSXdev. I'm hoping to see more of them.


Attempt 2/2. Better, but the rear end failed. (The front end failed with 1/2). I may try to get both ends work one day, but today is not the day. (These are basically just semidetached cinnamon rolls in a line.)


Past the halfway point in Hey Pikmin now; after I'm done with that game, I'll finally try Ultra Smash and amiibo Festival. Looking forward to experiencing those.


Eurogamer reports on rumors that Sonic Colours might be getting remastered. We'll see...


I still can't fathom how the unavailability of something for purchase grants me any kind of right I didn't already have to it.


TIL Jane Jensen has been writing erotic fiction for several years now.


I was thinking about War of the Worlds, and realized the corona virus probably wouldn't infect lizard people.


I need to reread the Yotsuba&! volumes I have. Just to break out of this rut.


Video game documentaries? Well, I'm being predictable...


I've been playing a lot of Gear.Club Unlimited 2 this weekend. In your opinion, what would be the best non-kart racing games on Switch (1D, 2D or 3D)?
