On the positive side, Startide on Switch got a patch and I could get past the part that crashed the game constantly. On the negative side, it's still not a fun game.

 
 

It feels strange to see the community blog list without one from Kerrik52. But I suppose that's for his best.

 
 

Finished my first hidden object game in a long while (Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove on 3DS). Not a good platform for such games and I'm not happy about the navigation either.

 
 
 

I played a hidden object game on 3DS. I had to find a sandwich in the image. The game didn't accept the hotdog in the image as the answer :-(

 
 

I wonder if I'm inclined towards playing old games because I don't have the time and energy to play (most) new games when they come out and are relevant.

 
 

Good question: Why shouldn't I upload my retro games' source code in GitHub? My weak answer: I can stand knowing my code is crap. I can't stand everyone else knowing my code is crap.

 
 

Did I really just not get the Super Trophy in Horizon Chase Turbo because I got 146/145 points on Asphalt and Sunshine?

 
 

Really happy to see Santi Ontanon got his XRacing ready for MSXdev'18. Looks like a game I'll be happy for BSR to lose against.

 
 

Those playing FEHeroes... why do you do it? What is your goal? (I've decided to try maxing (5*, L40) as many different characters as I happen to get.)

 
 

I went through my Wii U digital games one day. I had completely forgotten amiibo touch and play (tap). What a misstep that was...

 
 

I'm wondering if studying Finnic mythology sporadically for a few years to make a game based on it would be worth doing. Especially since I can't imagine the game would be any fun to play.

 
 

I've had more fun than I expected with Turing Test. Why didn't I play it before -- I certainly had it in my Steam library for ages.

 
 

I'm considering permachanging my alias. Every time someone writes here "Figma" I mistake that for "Flgma", ergo, me. I'm a counterfeit Figma with limited mobility.

 
 

One of my big flaws is that I keep considering Switch as a docked console only instead of a portable console.

 
 

This year Finland's performer in the Eurovision Song Contest will be... Darude. Linked, a toy-trumpetless cover of his best-known song. I'd like to post the "What year is it?" image too, though.

 
 

If I wanted to play a 3D game that was a bit like Metroid Prime in the exploration but more puzzles and effectively no combat, which game should I play?

 
 

Quick judgment on Zombie Panic in Wonderland DX on Switch: no attempt at pointer controls at all, 2D cutscenes look resolutionwise like they're from the WiiWare original or the 3DS port, low-poly models abound.

 
 

I imagine many remember such Quake 1/2 mods like CTF, TF and ActionQuake. But what are the lesser-known mods for these games you have fond memories of?

 
 

Thought I'd link to this one Youtuber whose shmup playthrough videos I've been watching -- and even more so reading the video descriptions.

 
 

I got mail. Just the one on the top, though.


 
 

I decided to give No More Heroes 2 a shot. So far, the minigames have been more fun than the "actual" game.

 
 

After playing some OutRun on Switch, I got the urge to try playing World Rally Fever on PC again. And I still can't win the easiest cup.

 
 

Would the (S)NES Classic Mini count as a physical release of the games on it?

 
 

"To unlock Margarete, I signed a pact with Mephistopheles for unlimited gacha/lootboxes." Typing that felt wrong for more than one reason.

 
 

Today, I finally took the plastic wrap from around my copy of DKCR:TF. Still didn't play it, though, I just let my coworkers to play it and see if they'd like it on Switch. (I think one'll pick NSMBU DX, which I completely understand.)

 
 

I just spent close to 70€ on yet another book about video games (840 pages about Konami games on MSX). And I still haven't written the review of the point-and-click adventure game coffee table book. I should put my priorities straight.

 
 

I'm hoping to find people interested in talking about (old) video games on Discord one day. And I mean voice chat, not just typing.

 
 

"If you would escape moral and physical assassination, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing" -- Elbert Hubbard. Hence I now intend to remove my accounts from several different sites (if they're still even up).

 
 

I thought I'd write a blog detailing all MSXdev'18 entries (retro game dev compo), but looking at how much I hadn't seen in an MSXdev'17 entry (see the video) despite attempting to play it for some time... yeah, I don't think I will.

Very much unprofessional writer, don't take anything I write without a truckload of salt.

On a hopefully long-term break from saying anything.
