And add yet another game to the mix in Nine Parchments on the Switch. It's a co-op action RPG where you go around blasting monsters with magic. Originally, the game had a bug that would erase your save data randomly, so I'm hoping it's all been fixed because the game's silly fun.

I just finished playing through Lisa: The Painful RPG and Lisa The Joyful. It was comparable to Mother 3 and Undertale, both in absurd humor and in hitting you with the feels. But it's much more morally ambiguous than the other 2, to where you're not really sure who's the bad guy. It's just a really messed up story. Gameplay-wise, it was a little too easy, the hardest part of it was trying not to accidentally walk off the edge of a cliff to your death. I tried out all of the 30+ companions in Painful and figured out several broken-tier strats that made the whole game a cakewalk... and in Joyful it's just a matter of taking Joy at every difficult boss and winning through sheer brute force.

I'm finally playing The Last of Us for the first time.
It's pretty neat so far, although I'm super bad at it.

Halfway through Breath of the Wild now. I'm terrible at finding the Korok Seeds, but I'm pretty good at figuring out the shrines. I'll admit my bro gave me a pointer in one of them because I never knew you could set both types of remote bombs out at once. Made getting past that very short trial once he told me that. And hey, I returned the favor by telling him that the open space in the rock circles generally point you in the direction where the other missing rock is.

Along with that, beat Hyrule Warriors and Nine Parchments in our co-op runs of that. I think I'll either be taking on Tropical Freeze in multiplayer or the new Bloodstained NES homage game on my own next.

Finishing Celeste on Switch. At first I thought “Oh great, another generic 8-bit platformer?” But man, this game is so much more than that. I’ve been gripped by the heartwarming story, and I’m really impressed at how seamlessly it’s tied into the gameplay. I might go for the B/C sides as well.

Closing in on 75 shrines completed and getting ready to stock up for my third Divine Beast now in Breath of the Wild. I spent one of my play sessions doing side quests and hunting for a few Korok Seeds. I'll admit to using a guide for the latter in some cases because I don't have the patience to run all over and find a needle in a haystack like that. Shrines are different. Those I've all but one or two done without any guides to this point and are totally fun to uncover on my own. Besides, you get a sensor for those things anyway.

Short break from Zelda tonight to try out Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. Got through the first two stages, and I can say that it certainly has that Castlevania NES game feel to it, that's for sure.

I ended up modding Skyrim SE and palying that a bit lately. I've run into some hilarious inexplicable issues. Last night I had a bug where I tried talking to an npc too soon after he ended the conversation and the game didn't know what to do. So it settled on a blank unexitable conversation. The even more hilarious bug though was one that left me nearly completely unable to quicksave. After looking into the bug I found out that the solution is to enable TAA. If you have antialiasing disabled (which I did because I don't really need AA, especially at the performance penalty I get) or have FXAA enabled (which looks like trash) then the game inexplicably has issues with quicksaving. Luckily I was already intending to lower some graphics settings to improve performance, notably shadow quality, distance, and foliage distance, which overall left me just above my previous performance levels. Not that they're fantastic though. I still commonly get upper 20s to mid 30s fps outside. Inside I typically get mid 40s to 60 though which is helpful.

I’ve been playing Bloodstained as well. My god, this may even top Castlevania 3 in my list of favorite Classicvanias if the quality keeps up (Yeah I prefer 3 over 4. Sue me.) If this is the teaser we’re getting, I eagerly await Ritual of the Night.

And because it had to be done, #FuckKonami.

I've been playing Fire Emblem Warriors.
I've done most of the History Mode maps that aren't DLC.
I'm almost finished with the Hero Challenge map.

I still need the Sol Katti Scroll for Lyn, but I'm not looking forward to a bow-only stage.

I'll probably get the DLC soon.
Maybe after unlocking Anna.

Over 90 shrines and three of the Divine Beasts taken care of. I probably could go rush in and beat the game if I wanted, but I want to see how many more of these things I can uncover on my own here first. Game kind of has a needle in the haystack thing going for it with many of these shrines. For some, I like it. Others are a little too obtuse for me. Either way, game's been fun enough for most of the 60+ hours I've put into it.

Finally picked up Dark Souls Remastered and it has been a blast so far... right up until the Capra Demon. Why in the blue flying hell is that boss fight arena a) filled with spiteful doggos and b) so tiny?! I doubt it'll be as much of a brick wall as the blood-starved beast was for me in Bloodborne, but... bleh.

And Hyrule is safe once more. Breath of the Wild is basically what I thought it would be when I first saw it at E3, a 3D representation of what the first Zelda game was like. Tons of exploration and being able to go just about anywhere on the map once you get past the opening area. A Link Between Worlds basically recaptured the magic of the 2D games for me, and this one just felt great for the 3D stuff.

If they do another game in this style down the road, I hope it includes more enemy types. That's about the only complaint I have with the game along with any gyro control puzzles. But yeah, the shrines being your heart pieces and all the things you can find or do on the world map really resonated with me well. Wound up playing around 70 hours, and I still have twenty shrines left to uncover and quite a bit of side quests to do, but the main game is finished. Totally would recommend it.

I also like CV3 over CV4 since I preferred the multiple characters and branching stage paths. I finished my Normal mode run off right after beating Breath of the Wild to do nearly all of the harder Nightmare mode run this morning. Should finish that off later on and call it beaten even though there's more content after that.

I like how the branches come during the stage in this game since you get to play around with all the characters at once instead of having to pick and choose one partner like you did in Castlevania III. It's definitely a nice mix of that with a hint of Rondo of Blood mixed in. Yeah, this is another fun Switch game by Inti Creates. They seem to make a lot of these fun NES-like games with this, Blaster Master Zero, and Mighty Gunvolt Burst.

Played thru the testament of Sherlock Holmes, pretty solid enjoyable adventure game with a pretty solid plot, I have a lot of these games from some bundle and may go back and play the older ones too, see if they're any good
If I was suffering, I’d cut the ties that were never meant to bind.

The original Street Fighter is rough. Playing it on the 30th Anniversary Collection game. Yeah, this series starts with the second game even more than Mega Man does... because I actually like MM1!

Well, I'm feeling nostalgic today. Time to bash my head against the wall for hours on end as I try to beat this game once and for all. :D



Edit: World 1 is kicking my ass. This is gonna be fun.

Well... Power Stone 2 is fun!

Meanwhile, the original Street Fighter is not. I save scummed my way to a victory against the AI that will move spam you any chance they get. Didn't help that the controls are totally stiff as can be. Glad I moved on to the original Street Fighter Alpha after that. Game feels way better. Still not good at it, but at least I know it's because I'm bad at fighting games and not playing a bad fighting game anymore. Ha-ha.

Happy they put twelve Street Fighter games on the same disc. Only bummer is that they're all the arcade versions which means no World Tour mode for Alpha 3 and weaker sound for 3rd Strike. Other than that, yeah, this is a fun collection for what it is.

So I got Mario Tennis Aces, and wow is this game good!
I love the mechanics of the game, they're super fun to learn and master (The only problem is that I'm really bad at using/defending against them)
The story mode is also really cool too, if a tad difficult (Again, I'm really bad)

I just played through Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion. It's inkredibly fun. The ink swimming mechanics lends itself really well to 3D platformer level designs. In addition to this DLC pack being very meaty, it's also WAY harder than the main game's single player content in both of the Splatoon games. It feels like this is where the designers finally got to flesh out all of their ideas that only got used once or twice in the main campaign and stuff that wasn't done at all yet.

And just when I thought I was done, I find out there's

a super hard extra boss

, as well as an extra completionist goal of beating every level with each weapon that's available for it. Usually each level has a recommended weapon, an "easy mode" weapon, and a "hard mode" weapon. So now I'm gonna go and beat all of the DLC levels with every weapon just because I can't get enough of this game's single player content it's just that good.

I played Bayonetta a bit yesterday since it was on sale. I see why people like it but it has some infuriating design decisions. Specifically introducing new enemies who attack during their intro cutscene then giving you control back just in time to get hit by said attack as well as having enemies you're expected to dodge with tight timing (the first alfheim portal challenge in particular here) but not only not telegraphing some of their attacks (the most difficult ones to time at that) but also only giving you about a tenth of a second to do so.

I also really despise the dog enemies introduced in the third chapter. Their idiotic roar attack seems to be undodgeable and if you're meleeing them which seems to be the only effective way to kill them you're stuck right next to them stunned when they roar and can't really get out of your stunned state before getting hit. They can also garb you in their mouth if you're in any state other than dodging and this attack is not only instant but also not telegraphed as far as I could tell.

There's also one annoying spot in the third chapter where you have to run across a collapsing bridge. At the other end there's an upwards path going off tot he right. This is the only visible path you can see but it's not the right path. You can only find the right path by ignoring that path altogether and staying on the collapsing bridge, something that the game heavily implies you don't want to be doing.
