Not doing "In progress" this year. I never updated that part, anyhow. :P

Completed:
Dragon Quest 4 (DS; Completed 1-18-19) [Replay/First Time]
Notes: While I've played this game many times on NES, I only played the DS remake once before, and oddly, I can barely remember doing so. I never finished it, at any rate. And it surprised me how ahead of its time the game originally was. Didn't see too many heavily character and story-driven RPGs on the NES. Definitely a game I felt aged well, and a good start to the year. I'd have finished this about a week sooner were it not for various illnesses I had to deal with, but so it goes.

Front Mission: Gun Hazard (SNES; Completed 1-30-19) [First Time]
Notes: Don't let the format fool you. This is a typical 90s Square RPG disguised as a platformer/shooter. That said, it's a fun game, and I'd dare say an underrated gem. And the soundtrack was quite your dream team. Uematsu, Mitsuda, Nakano, and Hamauzu. So elaborate for such an under the radar game. Yeah, there were a few flaws, such as how you could get damaged if you were caught in the explosion of a defeated enemy... and enemies *knew* about this, often charging right at you when close to death... but nothing that detracted from the overall experience.

CrossCode (PC; Completed 3-4-19) [First Time]
Notes: I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this game. It has a lot of fun stuff, but it also has a lot that annoys me. I did complete all the quests, though I didn't get all the trophies, and about halfway through the game, I had to use the in-game option to lower the damage dealt by a couple notches, because I am *very* bad at twitch dodging. All in all, though, I enjoyed it, and felt the game did more right than wrong. Looking forward to future updates, as well.

Timespinner (PC; Completed 3-7-19) [First Time]
Notes: It's... basically Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, except with a fraction of that game's difficulty, a time travel mechanic that, while a very neat concept, felt underutilized, and surprisingly, a predominately LGBT cast. That said, it's still fun enough, it just left me wanting more. Which, honestly, isn't a *bad* thing. A nice palette cleanser after the long and difficult CrossCode.

Scribblenauts Unlimited (PC; Complete 3-10-19) [First Time]
Notes: Scribblenauts is always good for a laugh. While this game didn't, oddly, seem to have as much content as even the DS original, it was still a lot of fun just to screw around. And the great addition of the adjective system made things nice and silly. I did get all 106 Starites, of course.

Yoku's Island Express (PC; Completed 3-12-19) [First Time]
Notes: "Pinball Metroidvania". Those words have no business going together... or so I thought, at least! This game was absolutely fantastic! It's short, and not especially difficult, but *damn* is it ever fun! Not much more to say... I loved it from start to finish.

Soulblazer (SNES; Completed 3-14-19) [Replay]
Notes: Just a quick replay of an old favorite from my childhood. Still fun.

Klonoa: Door to Phantomile (PSX; Completed 3-28-19) [First Time]
Notes: A fun romp. Not all that hard. Controls weren't the greatest, but they were mostly all right. The bonus stage was awful. Overall, I liked the game.

Baten Kaitos (GC; Completed 4-22-19) [First Time]
Notes: Wow. How on Earth did this gem slip under my radar for so long? This game was an absolute blast from start to finish; easily one of the best JRPGs I've ever played... and believe me, I've played quite a few. It did have some minor flaws, such as rather poor voice acting and some uneven character balance, but those were far outweighed by the extremely fun battle system, refreshingly original story, beautiful vibrant graphics, and an excellent musical score. It's a *long* game, and yet I still want *more*! Truly, the best RPG on GameCube... not that it has much competition, unfortunately.

stick mice in my head and then beat my head in with a hammer and let them back out (SMW hack) (SNES/PC; Completed 5-1-19) [First Time]
Notes: What a neat little hack. Some clever gimmicks, both in implementation and execution. Top notch level design. I can see why people raved about it.

AM2R: Return of Samus (PC; Completed 5-8-19) [Replay]
Notes: Heard this game got a series of unofficial fan updates, so I figured I'd try it again. Not a whole lot has changed, but it's definitely a bit more polished, so that's nice.

Metroid: SR387 (Zero Mission hack) (GBA; Completed 5-12-19) [First Time]
Notes: AM2R had me wanting more Metroid, so I decided to try a hack. It was... all right. Rather short, only took me about 2 hours, and only had a max of six energy tanks, 100 missiles, and ten super missiles, as well as no Power Bombs, Plasma Beam, or Gravity Suit. Design wasn't the greatest, either. But it wasn't bad, either.

Spyro the Dragon (PSX; Completed 5-18-19) [First Time]
Notes: Pretty solid old school collectathon platformer. Has some of the usual jank of such early entries, such as no analog stick support, somewhat floaty controls, and an uncooperative camera, but it's overall a fun game. 120% completion, natch.

プレイした:
1) Wild ARMs - PlayStation - January 31st
Commentary: An early PS1 JRPG. Starts out strong but it's generally not as good as say, Arc the Lad II, which came out earlier the same year. Then again, it's also one of Media.Vision's earlier titles, their third one, in fact. And their first one that's not a shooter. Battle graphics are worse than FFVII somehow, but I didn't mind, field graphics are serviceable. Grinding is kept to a minimum, unless you want to max out all your guns ARMs and tbh, why would you? I guess Curse is there for that, if you wanna? The story is really fucking dumb, tho. ProJared called it confusing, but it's really not, it's just really stupid. Encounter balance in Ka Dingel was a bit of a pain.

2) Sonic the Hedgehog - Mega Drive - February 12th (Replay)
Commentary: it all began in 91, kept on rolling till 95 (because xtreme got cancelled). The game that started this comedy of errors. It's unrefined and janky as all hell, but I still have a soft spot for it. Aesthetics are on point, music is on point, level design could be better, but they were still learning. Still a classic all these goddamn years. You just need an arcade-y, "replay the game to constantly hone your skills and do better each time" sorta mindset to truly appreciate it. This isn't a game of instant gratification like the 2D Marios.

3) Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Mega Drive - February 12th (Replay)
Commentary: Takes Sonic 1 and hammers out all the kinks it has. Levels are faster, layouts are simplified to keep the essentials, tropes are evolved, bosses are more creative, Special Stages are made somewhat more bearable... One more knocked out of the park. My one gripe with this game is the the Hill Top to Sky Chase stretch is a bit sluggish. Oil Ocean is still eye-candy however. Mystic Cave always reminded me of Frida's theme from Bust-A-Groove. Okay technically, it's the other way around since I found out about BAG later on in life, but you get what I'm saying.

4) Sonic the Hedgehog CD - Mega CD - February 12th (Replay)
Commentary: たのしさ∞。The odd one out. Takes Sonic 1 as a base and adds exploratory, non-linear nonsense in the mix. Honestly does more to sabotage itself than improve itself. The graphics and music quality are at their highest here (at least until S3&K hit a home run with its sprite work) but the level designs and the way it handles the time travel and Obtaining a Good Future mechanics just don't work. The Taxman+Stealth remaster fixes stuff in an engine level (spindash, collision), but I feel the game would require a complete makeover to reach its full potential. It's a good game, yes, but it's not a good Sonic game. Classic Amy is adorable, though. Also, JP/EU music is my preference, but the US music isn't without it's charm. Played the NTSC-J release for this playthrough, worried too much about input lag to play the PAL version with 60hz on Kega. I still have to beat Knuckles' story in Sonic 3 & Knuckles so please wait a bit more for that one!

5) Hydlide - NES - March 5th
Commentary: there it is. Honestly it's just a proto-JRPG, I've played far worse games than this. It has all the qualities you'd expect from a proto-RPG, and I do mean both the positive and negative qualities. It's just that the negative qualities become more pronounced when it comes to sensibilities of the post-Dragon Quest and Zelda 1 era, which were like three years later. If you have nostalgia for it, or the resistance to endure archaic mechanics from 1984, it can be a fun ride through RPG history, but if that's not the case, you're just in for a worse version of Ys mixed with the crypticness of Zelda 1, and if you're playing the NES version, terrible looping music. Also Varalys is fucking bullshit and I savescummed on him.

6) Dragon Warrior - NES - March 18th (Replay)
Commentary: The first modern JRPG. Before bishounen, before Nomura, before anime clichés, there was this. It's a game I feel everyone with an interest in RPGs should play, even those that don't particularily care for JRPGs (it's actually quite WRPG-adjacent). Although, I'd rather recommend the SNES, GBC or Android/iOS versions (especially SNES) instead of the crusty old NES original, or the MSX port for that matter. Speaking of which, has anyone here heard of the PC98 version? It exists, and it's likely fanmade! The gameplay and story are the most basic you can get with a one-member party, instant equipping like FF Mystic Quest, and a plot that boils down to "The Dragonlord has taken over the land with his army of monsters, and Princess Gwaelin/Laura has also been abducted and hidden in a cave by his minions. Go fix shit." Honestly, I kinda like it this way. It's basically FF Mystic Quest's "RPG lite" concept done right and done earlier. Due to taking more inspiration from Ultima and Wizardry, the game is surprisingly open. You're given directions on what to do, but from there on, you're on your own on what order to do them in and when. The game has sort of skill barriers with areas having stronger enemies to help point you in the right direction. And the game is never outright unforgiving, as game overing simply means restarting back in Tantegel/Ladutorm with half your gold. It also provides a sort of "Do I start over and keep the money? Or do I keep going, make back my money but keep my EXP?" question whenever you fuck up. This is a short game, you're meant to savor it, as it encourages you to level as much as possible, keep trying and exploring, to see the ending. This is the make it or break it factor for many people, and it's honestly a good thing that this has been toned down immensely in remakes and later installments.

7) Kirby's Dream Land - Game Boy - March 25th (Replay)
Commentary: A simple game for a simple franchise. Gameplay isn't that special and the bosses are kinda carol-y, but seeing the beginnings of Kirby is always nice. It's a game I can always go back to due to how laid-back it is. Still can't beat Extra Game, though. i actually did but i forgot about it because i didnt believe in myself ever beating it :)

8) Street Fighter II (Super Street Fighter II) - SNES - April 1st (Replay)
Commentary: The game that started the golden age of fighters. Honestly, the arcade SSF2T still holds up. AI can be a bit annoying, but if you want you can just turn down the difficulty (or turn it up if you're a Spicy Boy (gender not specific)). I like the arcade versions better, so the graphics and music are pretty inferior compared to what I would prefer to play, but I was in the mood for the SNES port for some unknown reason. The graphics and music and gameplay are all revolutionary, the ideal base for fighting games to develop from.

9) ActRaiser - SNES - April 2nd (Replay)
Commentary: A classic from the SNES' launch. The gameplay is pretty basic, on both the action and sim sides, but it's the execution that matters. It's pretty much the one good Christian game. The feeling of being a loving god protecting his followers from evil is really nice. As simple as everything in this game is, you really start to care for the little towns and their denizens. I actually felt pretty guilty about grinding by destroying the towns to get the biggest amount of villagers. It's dumb, I know, but... The western version isn't very challenging, but the Japanese version exists for people who prefer more of a punch.

10) Dragon Quest II - SNES - May 7th (Replay)
Commentary: This game is great! Until it isn't. It starts out so promising with an increased difficulty, multiple party members, a larger storyline, a bigger world... Then the map design standards go out the window and reach a level above Final Fantasy II (actual II). It's very sad. This game has so much promise to it, it tried to be Dragon Quest but better, but it just ends up squandering it all with lackluster map design and encounter balance. I want to say this is due to rushed development but I'm not sure.

11) Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest - SNES - May 16th (Replay)
Commentary: I was too harsh on it, my first time. I was lowkey expecting a AAA blockbuster RPG from Square despite being a beginner's RPG and I was quickly disappointed. I compared it to games like FF4, FF6, FF7, many games that served as people's first RPGs. Taking a look at it again... It's not the worst thing ever. The idea of westerners needing a simple RPG to ease them into the genre is insulting, but in a business perspective, to attract casual gamers who have never played anything that wasn't action focused... It makes some sense. The game is a breeze to play. I clocked in at around 22 hours, but like, most of that was me fighting clearing out every map and battlefield just to overkill shit. As a breather between heavier games, it can be nice and relaxing. The gameplay is solid, music is outstanding, graphics are simplistic but do the job, just the dungeon design could be better, I feel. Ted Woolsey and Yoshihiko Maekawa's translation efforts were solid and elevate this game from "just there", to a memorable, if average, experience. A translation like FF4 SNES' would just bring this game down even further. This game knows its just an RPG intended for absolute beginners, and it doesn't do anything to prove otherwise. It just has fun with what little it can do. p.s. rest in piss projared's entire fucking career, hopes and dreams

Postby PlatformKing72 » 4 days ago

Games I Plan to complete (may add or remove from this list later)
-Touhou: Luna Nights- A Touhou Metroidvania is one of the coolest things i've ever seen. Also, Sakuya is a mf badass
-Mega Man 7- The Wily Stages aren't very nice >:[
-Various SMBX Episodes and SMW Hacks- Mario is the coolest game series fite me
-Sonic Mania- Do I even have an excuse not too?
-Sonic 3 and Knuckles- The best of the og trilogy
-Super Mario 64- Mario's 1st ever 3D adventure is surprisingly good even though the dev team had NEVER made a single 3D game until Mario 64 started development
- A whole city i'm building in Minecraft- Minecraft never died, it's bigger than ever you fools.
My Completed games of 2019 (so far, may edit later)
Super Mario World :D - SNES/Super Famicom, 1990/1991/1992 despending on region
Possibly the best Mario game created period, beating this was pure joy start to finish so I just had to get all 96 exits. I loved just running around as Mario in the levels. The Cape is one of the best Power-Ups period. The satisfaction of reaching secret exits is undescribable. The Switch Palace is one of the coolest mechanics in any game ever. Also, some series mainstays debuted in this game. Like the Spin Jump, Yoshi, Wiggler, the Chargin Chucks and extra collectables. (the Dragon Coins)

Sonic CD, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive with the SegaCD/Sega MegaCD addon and others (2011 remake), 1993
I can't describe how beautiful the art in this game is and the soundtrack too. I like both the Japenes It's also a total balst to playthrough though The main mechanic of this game is time travelling to the Past or Future handled by signposts found throughout the level and it doesn't work unless yout going fast enough. The different time zones as there called are different variations on the same level but they have different graphics and music. There are 2 different variations of the Future called Good or Bad. You can only acquire a good future if you broke the robot teleporter in the Past on the same level. There are also the Time Stones to collect in Special Stage which acquired like Sonic 1, 50 rings or more equals big ring at the end. But they are acquired by the checkpoint like Sonic 2 in the remake though. The Time Stones are required to get the good ending. Some of the level design falls falt and feels boring and frustrating at times like some parts of Wacky Workbench or Quartz Quadrant and Metallic Madness Acts 2 and 3 in all of the time zones. The bosses also suck in this game, their too easy to even count as bosses to begin with. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed this one.
