Recently heard about the Senna Forever DLC coming to Horizon Chase Turbo so gave the already available Summer Vibes a go.

The Outrun style car handles pretty nicely & the unlockable skins change the drivers too. Black car gives you my fav, the Miami Vice duo.

Wild Arms. It was my brother's game, but I was into it more than he was & got pretty far into it. Guess he was jealous or something because he waited until I bought a new game & after a week or two of getting into that he suddenly traded in the game. Made no offer to sell it to me or anything & he has older games than that collecting dust to this day that he's barely touched.

Tales of Destiny This one actually is mine & I still have it somewhere. Took another break here, but I guess this one was too long. When I came back to it, I was hopelessly lost in some oddball over world map that connects a network of dungeons or something. Tried to muscle my way through it a few times, but the random enemy encounter rate is so high that I'd lose my bearings all over again. On the plus side, all that wandering helped grind my party up a few levels. Unfortunately, in one of my last attempts, I ended up back at the start of the entire map all over again.

Anyone here have Hardcore Mecha? I'm wondering if they ever patched the slow-down & crashing issues with the Switch version of that game. I did finish what I think was the final boss, but the game crashed during the big escape part of the stage afterwards, so nothing was saved.

Got frustrated & haven't gone back to the game since.

Sorry, no kids of my own. Closest I've done was play the gamer uncle role twice(nephew & then cousin's kid). It's usually them playing what they want & thinking they're hot stuff until they visit me, then I beat the pants off of them.

Once their cries die down, I usually try to give some tips. The only hurdle I can recall was during the N64 era when my nephew started finding cheat codes & believed using those was better than actually getting good. In Diddy Kong Racing he would just use the airplane & strafe from side to side, spamming endless missiles whenever I passed him.

Almost the end of August, but I've managed to finish one: Astral Chain.

Congrats!

Funny enough, I was at Game Stop yesterday looking for Astral Chain & they didn't have it. Which reminds me, I probably should move Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance & Nier: Automata up the "to finish" list, but eh. Maybe another time.

As for Horizon Chase Turbo just crossed the last finish line of World Tour. The map is 79% complete so not sure if I'll move on to another game or go back & get some more 1st place finishes.

May as well toss my hat in.

Horizon Chase Turbo: May not 100% World Race by the end of the month(or ever). But I want to at least finish racing on all the regions. Already unlocked Hawaii, but trying to at least get a bronze trophy in the remaining Japan tracks before taking that on.

Wasn't me. Though if anyone wants to invite me for a round, I tend to be the most open for lengthy gaming on weekends.

XC Golf has made me stop playing Adventure, so could use something else to do in the game.

Just I as I thought I was getting a handle on things, I reach XC Golf in Adventure. What the F was that?

That aside, I seem to be slowly getting better. I tend to do better avoiding the fancier spins/curve shots & just worry about my positioning when driving the ball straight.

Going for a putt on the other hand feels like a crap shoot when elevation is involved...

Been enjoying the game so far. I suck at it & despite wanting to try motion controls, I tend to do better with buttons. But I am enjoying it.

And yeah, I'd be up for some online games with folks here for the fun of it.

Ditto on store pick up next time. Was supposed to have gotten it today, but the mail carrier must have been too lazy to get out the truck & walk to my front door because they claimed a failed delivery attempt.

Battle Arena Toshinden on GB/GBC - Knew I liked Takara's take on Game Boy fighting games after Samurai Shodown, but I thought they kicked it up a notch here. Pretty sure I played it more than the original PSX game my brother had.

Castlevania Legends - Another GB/GBC standout for me. Though it might just be because it was made after Symphony of the Night, yet it wasn't a metroidvania. Sometimes I just want to whip my way from point A to point B without having to backtrack.

Oh, & Kirby's Star Stacker. Everyone I let play it told me it was boring & both Tetris & Yoshi were better, yet I got addicted to it.

Did Timespinner ever get a Switch release? I just remembered backing it, but I got it on Steam.

15
As bland as Mighty No.9 was I'm still glad I backed it. If only for the Mighty Gunvolt spinoffs. Those are solid.

I still bring mine along for car & doc waiting rooms. Monster Hunter 4U's online seemed alive & well last time I peeked into it. Though that was a month or so before Rise launched.

Assault Android Cactus(PC)

Finally took out the final boss after a year or so of trial, error, & procrastination. Easily one of my fav twin-shooters. Not sure if I'll commit myself to getting an S+ Rank on every single stage or even bother with the new campaign+, but I may chase a few achievements between making sure I stay on top of my friends leaderboard.

Now if only I can get Steam's Remote Play Together working so I can try co-op...

Nice! The last boss is so difficult without the Shotgun character. Really cool game, I was best with Starch (laser + homing missiles) most of the game, but couldn't do the last boss with Starch. Wanna say Coral was the slow Shotgun class right?

Yeah, that's her. I used Lemon(spreader gun) for the majority of the game, including the final boss. I actually needed Coral to defeat that security boss, Judge.

Think Mop it Up summed up why Ogre Battle 64 shouldn't be for everyone pretty well in the comments. It's not exactly a casual RPG.

I wish listed Ogre Battle 64 but never committed to trying it again. Though between the difficulty spikes & how easy it was to have your fav soldiers turn into zombies, the VC saving might be a plus when it comes to fixing screw-ups.

It's a definite maybe. I really want to give the motion controls a go & like Spak-Spang I also hope there's some sorta normal golfing option.

We got Peach & Daisy so I'm happy.

TalkBack / Re: Octopath Traveller Follow-Up
« on: February 18, 2021, 03:29:54 PM »
Graphically, this looks great, but I'm hella trash at tactics games so I will pass. I bought Octopath Traveler then barely played it. I'll go back and actually finis... haha, no, I won't. What's wrong with me?

Kinda in the same boat. Had tried the demo & ended up quitting mid-battle as I felt I was taking way too long. I know one gripe I have is the turns are by character initiative which frustrates me a bit. Especially when similar looking enemies have the same profile pic in the order tab & I'm not sure who to focus on. I prefer the old school player turn/enemy turn.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: poll: How many Wii U ports have you double dipped on?
« on: February 10, 2021, 08:15:41 AM »
If 3D World's online multiplayer is remotely functional than I'd say it's one of the more substantial Switch ports.

That might tempt me. I have the original but never got around to finishing it. Online co-op could help me along.

Just Mario Kart 8 from the WiiU.

Had bought Zombie Panic in Wonderland thinking it was a Wii port but turns out it's the PSP port(no motion controls).

I might have forced myself to try this one out if it had online. Heck, if it were a free to play online game I may have slowly got hooked & bought some DLC skins/customizable items depending on how active the community was.
