    Please put a star by the following, Kark: -Zero Gunner 2- (NS) -Strikers 1945 II (NS) -Blazing Star (NS) I'm certainly going to beat these all quite a few more times during the year, but I'm not gonna spam the thread with those completions. Since they're such short games, I'll only add...

    World of Light - 2019 Games Completed Thread

    Blazing Star (NS) Decided I needed a horizontal shooter in my Switch collection (Ikaruga and Stikers II are vertical, ZG2- is omni-directional). Turns out I picked a pretty good one. Blazing Star is an old SNK shooter, made by Aicom/Yumekobo, for the Neo Geo. It's been ported to iOS and...

    Daemon x Machina has a lot of potential. My only problem with the demo is that, because there can be so much action happening at so many different altitudes, it gives me a bit of a headache. Not sure what framerate this runs at, but it certainly isn't a locked 60. That aside, pretty damn fun...

    That's...pretty much the best review of the game anyone is gonna write. They don't really explain how junk works in the game (your eliminated rows get thrown onto someone else's screen, but only if you clear 2-4 rows, so clearing a single is borderline useless), but otherwise, just keep your...

    Man, I don't even like Tetris. But Tetris 99 is kinda addictive.

    Strikers 1945 II (NS) Well, you can't win 'em all, PSiKYO. Doing a little shoot 'em up research made this one sound like another forgotten classic. It is impressive in its own way, don't get me wrong. The color palette doesn't do this one any favors, but the sprite work is nice, the...

    Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate (NS) [H/T to @Goodtwin and @Koenig for springing this one.] Like Matt, I'm counting this one as done after G4. There's plenty of post-game content to go take care of, but my level is unlocked and the skies are clear, so to me the game is done. I already...

    So...apparently King Zell over at Reset Era has a good reputation with their info. https://www.resetera.com/threads/nintendo-direct-speculation-ot-a-thread-about-something-read-op.98257/page-25#post-17704684 Just sayin'.

    Zero Gunner 2- (NS) [Skip to part 2 if you want to read abut the gameplay.] I. History If I were to tell you that an acclaimed Japanese developer of arcade shooters released their (arguably) greatest game in 2001, you would tell me "yeah, I know, that's when Treasure released Ikaruga." But...

    What makes me question the GameInformer dude's info is...it sounds like Ubisoft development structure, not Nintendo. https://wccftech.com/metroid-prime-4-development-issues/ I mean, Nintendo has basically looked at Metroid and, when they aren't saying "that's still a franchise we do?", they've...

    Ikaruga (NS) - Free Play mode only This was on sale, and I've always heard that it's a legendary game, so I decided $10 was reasonable for a legend. Oof. This must be the sort of game that half-cyborgs play when they decide Ninja Gaiden and Dark Souls are too easy for them. But...it's still...

    Years ago, I got a (probably) $20 glass of scotch. 18-20 year old single malt, the name of which I forgot, because it was terrible. Medicinal as fuck. I've pretty much stayed with Johnnie Walker Black as my standby since. But as a gift-to-me for paying off my car, I decided to buy a celebratory...

    Travis Strikes Again (NS) Beat it in a shade under 12 hours. Probably could've done it in 10 if I didn't screw around a bit. If you want to find all the Ramen and collectable logos and alternate paths, it'll probably be closer to 20. Anyone saying they beat it in like 6 hours is probably...

    Keurig brewers. Don't get me wrong, I own one. I primarily use it for tea, though. I have some coffee pods I use every now and again, but just as a vehicle for caffeine when I really need it on a weekend morning. How do you create something in which you are able to input dozens of different...

    A proposal - the Sterling rule. You can sometimes tell how good a game is by its critical foils. So if the guy who didn't grok Breath of the Wild, but loved COD:MW3's single-player* doesn't like your game? Ay, you're worth checking out. TBH, I think TSA's overall meta score is about where it...

    Duly noted. I have Sirens, loaned it to a friend, hadn't gotten it back until like two months ago. It's next on the list (since Vonnegut graded it as one of his "A" books). Have to pull that out for nightcap duty. And I'll leave Breakfast for later. Lemme know when you get into Jailbird...

    Why yes, yes you can. I'm still in Coffee and Doughnuts, but an addendum on difficulty comments - I've read people saying it's too easy (meaning they only played the tutorial), and people saying it's too difficult for the "limited" moveset (which means they aren't creative and can't play a game...

    So Travis Strikes Again is...quite Suda. Is it repetitive? I mean, it's a brawler, so I guess that's true. But there is some depth and strategy to using the specials, and if you crank the difficulty, you will be punished for trying to button mash. There are some not-explained-in-game...
