Starting off Backlaugust strong this year by... giving up on Human Resource Machine.

As a result I was already googling solutions after a third of the way in, and I had no idea what the solutions I was copying were even doing. So, time to shelve it.

I am also playing this. I am currently at Level 35: Intro to Calc for Art Majors. I am curious how far into the game you were before falling off?

I am interested in Cult of the Lamb but will wait for the NWR review and a price drop.

I actually like starting back at the bottom of the ranks and working my way up in the first two games. I do like the free unlock because I main a splattershop pro and I remember that taking a little while to get to.

I just got back from a week of camping (sorry for the hold-up in Safe Words  :-[) I tend to just travel with my 3DS or Vita these days and while I am chipping away at Etrian Odyssey 4, there was no way I was going to finish that this month, so I started and completed Fun! Fun! Minigolf TOUCH! on 3DS. I picked this up based on it being developed by Shin'en. It is a lot better than the name suggests with nice graphics, and tight controls. You can even play as you Mii (well your mii's head on in-game avatar's body). The game is short with only 9 courses of 9 holes each. I was able to get Par or better on each and buy everything in the shop in about 3.5 hours. The one lament I have is that the hazards are too basic. They should have experimented more and done some cooler stuff.
As a side note. I am not sure if other folks still get street passed but I rarely get them now. I did manage to get one in Yellowstone when I was there. Do other folks still get street passes?

Sorry for the delay. I was off the grid the past week. If I am not too late then I will pick Andy Richter

I helped Lord Kirby tie up Yin Yarn as I finished a 100% run of Kirby's Epic Yarn yesterday on Wii. Total play time was just under 17 hours, very close to the 17.5 average that is listed for 100% runs on I thought the amount of content was just right and enjoyed most of the bonus challenges. It was neat to see the nascent version of the art style from Yoshi's Wooly World as well. I have mixed feelings about the Sonic-esque mechanic of beads that disperse when you get hit and need to recollect. I also expected a twist in the story, like King Fluff turning out to be the real evil boss, but that never happened. Still a solid 8/10 game with some good use of the Wii remote.

I think I'm in the mood for some classic gaming. Perhaps it's about time that I dive in the Mega Man X Legacy Collection collection and make my way through this famous and infamous series. These are probably relatively short games too, right?
I have played the first 4 Mega Man X games and each can be completed in a session or two (about 4-5 hours). I did get stuck on one of them near the final boss, where I was slightly underprepared and had to keep grinding to refill health containers before attempting the boss again. This made it go on for another hour or two. That might just have been mel. One of these days I will get around to the other games.

Insanolord, you are destined to be the second best host ever. After me of course  8). I would be honored to play.

Glad to see people are getting fired up early for Backlaugust this year. I have been frontloading with Kirby's Epic Yarn on Wii. I am at 58% right now so I should be able to mark that one off very early in the month.

There is enough info on this forum to create a really weird artificial intelligence model.
Yes, let's feed the entire contents of the NWR forums to OpenAI and see what it says.

That is funny because I just check the physical version of Shredder's Revenge and it is listed for August 31.

The link is missing:
It’s worth noting that a number of games in Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium have been included in other collections. For instance, the Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle (which I reviewed here) features The King of Dragons and Knights of the Round.

Just in time for Halloween. I am hyped for this. Have they confirmed touch controls?

I just finished Severance on Apple TV+. Apologies if this has already been discussed here. This is one of my favorite seasons of TV of all time. It is up there with season 1 of Twin Peaks, Westworld, and Lost for me. It would be easy to compare this to the style of Charlie Kaufman and I think that is pretty fair, but he has never done a TV show so here you go. It is very dark and may mess with your head so be warned. Also there is self-harm, but the episode where this takes place has a special warning at the beginning. Just queue up something lighthearted to rinse off with after watching, like Ted Lasso. Now go get severed.

I have heard great things about this game but never had the chance to play it. Is it only available to play on Gamecube?

It is really nice looking. If I were buying a new switch now I would get this one.

I'm going to come out and say that 80-90's puppets are unsettling. Love Labyrinth, but I feel like if I watched it as a child I would have had nightmares.
If you think the Labyrinth is unsettling, watch Meet the Feebles. It was directed by Peter Jackson.

Another botched Sonic job by Sega. My personal recommendation for playing the first two is the 3D versions on the 3DS. They are gorgeous in 3D and I can't play them any other way now. I have the 3rd game via the collection on PS3 and the Genesis Mini, but like the reviewer before this review, I have not played Sonic CD. I guess I will wait for the next re-release.

The Wily Wars is like the Super Mario All-Stars treatment of the first 3 Mega Man games. I played it on the Genesis mini and loved it. My only complaint would be the Genesis controller. Now you can play it with the NES controller joycon.

Also, is this being released for the Atari VCS?

That is quite an all-star line-up. I feel like they could have had any one of them and been fine from a promotional standpoint. Also, I am assuming they just split the tracks up and didn't actually collaborate on any scores?

Was MMBN5:Double Team DS just the two MMBN5 games in one? That's the version I played, but I don't remember if it was just the two games together or if there was any bonus content like in the Pokémon series.

I also never played MMBN6, so I'm excited about this.

According to NWR's page for MMBN5: Double Team it combines "both the GBA games of the same series and adding additional features, you'll be able to play with characters from both games and battle wirelessly."

I just picked up Persona 4 Golden for Vita last week. Very interested in Persona 5 Royal, but I am quite backlogged with JRPGs at the moment.

Well I am glad that I did not buy all of these on Wii U VC. I think I had this as a prediction but replaced it with something less predictable.

I am very interested in this one. If there is a physical version I will pick it up.
