  1. My first post for 2020! And it's not great... SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy (Switch) No screenshot this time, mainly because I forgot. I picked up this game as part of a Gamestop buy 2 get 2 free deal last weekend, and it's not great. It's clearly geared toward adolescent boys, being as "bouncy" as it is, and Terry Bogard is a girl. I was hoping the fighting mechanics were going to be similar to the KOF games, but no, they have that dumbed-down fighting system a lot of new fighting games have which I can't stand: one punch, one kick, one grab, and one special button. There's also a button to tag in your partner. You have to button mash until you get the opponent to low health, and then you hit a "finishing move" button to end the one-round match. There are no redeeming qualities. This one's likely to sit on the shelf for the rest of time. Onto the next...
  2. Although my family had a Colecovision that they bought my older sister when I was a baby in 1982, my first console that I could call mine was the NES. Got the Deluxe Set with R.O.B. on Christmas morning in 1987. As a 5 year old, playing Gyromite with a robot was the coolest thing ever! Later in the day, my aunt and uncle gave me Super Mario Bros. I'll never forget that! Still have both the NES and the Colecovision in my collection today.
  3. Snagged these yesterday with Gamestop's buy 2 get 2 free sale. Had to go to three different stores to find anything worth a damn before finding these. So far, I've only played a bit of Dead Cells, which is really good.
  4. For 2020, I need to come up with a solution for my older consoles in the game room. I'm running a 42" Panasonic 1080p plasma TV in there, so I've been wanting an upscaler/line doubler like the Retrotink 2X to solve that problem. If I had room, I'd run a CRT in there as well, but I don't. Other than that, I'm focusing on filling holes in the collection and playing the games I have. I wouldn't mind picking up a 32X, one of those new full size C64's, and maybe a Lynx if I come across those.
  5. Some of my choices: -I know Metroid II was redone for the 3DS, but they should port it without the weird gameplay mechanics to the Switch. Keep it simple! I'm talking Zero Mission-style. Hell, just port that game over while you're at it! -Two of the three Castlevania games at least made it as part of the Castlevania Collection, but getting full-fledged remakes (maybe combine all three into a Rebirth-style game) would be cool. -The TMNT games one the Game Boy were great as well, and one of them even had mild Metroidvania-style gameplay that would be ripe for a modern remake. -The Mario Land games are begging for this, especially Six Golden Coins. That game is amazing. Make it an "All Stars" collection. -I also agree on Gargoyle's Quest. I mean, they tossed Demon's Crest on the SNES app on the Switch, so who knows! -It's a GBC game, but the first Shantae should get a port. It's a fun little game, and the sequels are popular enough these days, so go for it!
  6. Gamestop had this gem for $25 all weekend, so I had to snag a copy. I always liked the Mana games, but the only one I own is the spinoff Secret of Evermore on the SNES. I've played Secret of Mana a little and dabbled in Sieken Densetsu 3 in the past, but I never played the first one. I'm starting there and planning on playing through all of them in order.
  7. This is a tough one for me. Do I NEED another console? Nope. Do I WANT them all? Yup! But here's the thing: Not having free time as an adult with a long commute to work and other obligations has really cut down on my gaming time. This console generation, I bought a Xbox One two years into its existence and picked up a Switch in late 2017 after Xmas. I also recently picked up a gaming laptop. I still don't have a PS4, although I do want one. Out of those consoles, I have far more playing time with the Switch than the others, although I've been gaming on the laptop a lot lately (mainly playing Wreckfest, which is awesome BTW). Most of the games on the Switch I've been playing are smaller, old-school style indie titles that can be played in bite-sized amounts anywhere, making it perfect for someone who doesn't have a lot of time. I can count on one hand the amount of times in the past year I played stuff on the XB1. Plus, with the PC and Switch, I can game in the same room as the wife as she watches whatever she watches on TV. The Amico is cool, but the Switch will likely scratch that itch, and it's portable to boot. The Atari Vaporware Computer System is never coming out, and the other two heavy hitters from Sony and Microsoft aren't grabbing my attention just yet. If anything, I'll finally get a PS4 and not have time to play that either. 😄
  8. Local nerd store that I hit up sometimes sells vinyl, comics, and games. Snagged Tutankham and Darius Twin, which were both on my must-have list. Especially pumped to have Darius Twin to go with my copy of Super Nova on the SNES; I love the Darius games! And as a bonus, they had two 80's Metal classics on the $1.99 cassette rack! Really excited to have that copy of Dokken's Back for the Attack, which was the first cassette I ever bought back when I was 5 in 1987!
  9. Finally had a few minutes to spend with this game last night. I LOVE IT. The gameplay is fun, it looks great, and the music is pretty damn good as well. It takes elements from a lot of early arcade shooters and mashes them all together in a fun package. Highly recommended!
  10. Ha, neither have I! Someone mentioned them recently in a FB group and they were on my mind. And then these showed up, so for $2 I had to snag them. I still have my old ones somewhere in my basement, along with my much-coveted Beavis and Butthead prismatic slammer. 😂
  11. Hit up a Savers this morning and picked up a couple Wii games I didn't have (both complete and mint) and someones POG Slammer collection. Yup, it's 2019, and I bought POGS. The POG case is a lot like those old NES rental cases from back in the day. Same size externally, but with a hang tag and some special holder slots inside. Paid less than $10 for the lot.
  12. This game looks cool, and for a buck, I'll give it a shot!
  13. Picked this up last night. I've wanted to try this one for a while. Should be interesting to see how it runs on the Switch.
  14. As far as games go? Stuff from the 16-Bit Era. Genesis is big on that list, but if I see an interesting SNES game I don't have for cheap, I snag it. I've been picking up a lot of OG Xbox stuff recently as well. Prices are still in the basement for those games. Other than that, it's vinyl. I have been buying more records than video games in the past year to be honest. My collection seems to get bigger every week!
  15. Straight out of the clearance bin at Walmart: $5 mini Pac Man? Don't mind if I do!
