    The Shackled Wolves - 2021 Games Completed Thread

    OOOH! I want to know what this new game Headhunter is about. The trailer got me excited. Thank you for sharing! The Gunk looks fantastic, but Damn, it's for XBox which is the system we don't have. Steve2 has a gaming PC, so maybe I could play it on there.

    Hey TNE! This week will be busy, as it seems all weeks have been recently, so I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving now so I don't miss it later. I hope you have a day that is free from negativity and strife and full of good food and laughter. Sending my best to you all!

    SteamWorld Quest - The Hand of Gilgamech I love the SteamWorld games. Their art, their humor, their gameplay. But I wasn't too sure about Quest. I'd never done a true card rpg before, excluding Paper Mario: Sticker Star which I hated with a passion. I had enough time to play this before...

    ActRaiser: Renaissance (NS) I'm a HUGE fan of the original ActRaiser on the SNES. I honestly don't know how many times I played the original, but I can tell you it was a lot. So when they announced this during the last Direct, it was a no-brainer that I would get it. And it did not disappoint...

    Finished Metroid Dread this weekend, and now I'm on to ActRaiser: Resurrection. I love the changes they've made to it. Definitely a more "full" game. Any old-school ActRaiser fans try the new one yet?

    Metroid Dread (NS) Finished it this weekend. Just wow! I truly appreciated the challenges. (I died a lot) But I never gave up. Each time a boss killed me (sometimes repeatedly), I kept going at it till I got better and could beat them. I love the world, the story, the exploration, and most of...

    Happy Belated Birthday! So far, for October, we recorded an episode of our podcast featuring Halloween 2018. I also watched "Halloween (OG", "Halloween (2018)", "Squid Game", "Slasher: Flesh and Blood", and "Queen of the Damned". Kinda slow start to my October watching. I need to get on that...

    Has anyone ever played the "Boderlands" games? I haven't played them, and can't figure out if I'd like them. I did love BioShock as well as Outer Worlds. Any advice is appreciated!

    Definitely glad you talked to a therapist. Definitely no shame in that at all. I hate that there is still a stigma against mental health, but the fastest way to break that, as we are doing here, is to talk about it. Do you have one of those UV lamps for seasonal affective disorder? Sending...

    Bayonetta 3 (Our favourite tall girl is back!)

    I loved the first two, so I was all in on this one for sure.

    Opinion on the mario movie casting

    I'm probably in the minority, but I had zero interest in Charles Martinet playing Mario in the full Mario movie. That voice would have not gone over well for 90 minutes. For a woo-hoo here or there, sure, but not the whole thing. From what I understand, Charles is adding some voice-over work to...

    I'm sending good thoughts your way, my friend. And I know what you mean about being reclusive. I'm usually quite social and outgoing, but I haven't had the energy to "people". Last night on the direct, I was most excited about Actraiser: Renaissance, and I immediately thought of you, because I...

    Good afternoon TNE! It's been awhile since I've written. The Pandemic has really gotten to me recently. Not really interested in usual activities. Even with my birthday coming up next week. I haven't played any video games for a bit. I'm excited about Metroid Dread, but having a hard time...

    Trine 2 Complete Edition (NS) While the graphics improved, I think the game overall took a step back from the original Trine. While the first game focused on physics based puzzles, this one just seemed like a "Best of luck" situation with their puzzles rooms. I still enjoyed it, but again, not...

    Trine (NS) For those that haven't played it, Trine is a physics based, puzzle platformer where you switch between the Wizard (who can use telekinesis as well as creating platforms and blocks), the Thief (who can shoot arrows and use a grappling hook, and the Knight (who has a sword, shield, and...

    Paper Mario: The Origami King (NS) I'll start off by saying that the end result of playing this was a game I absolutely loved. I'm so glad I played it. The art style and graphics were fantastic. The puzzles were wonderful. The worlds were fun to explore. As I had mentioned in other areas...

    That makes me sad about Axiom Verge 2. I picked it up the day it came out because of how much I loved the first. No, didn't play color splash. After how burned I was on Sticker Star, I couldn't do it. Only reason we have this one is Target had it on sale for like $25 in June. Seemed like a...
