  1. Well, I thought I was done buying digital games on sale but then my best friend gifted me a $35 Switch eShop gift card today, so I ended up picking up three more! I snagged DOOM Eternal, The First Tree, and Iron Crypticle with my gift card plus a bit of reward points I had saved up I had been holding out for a physical release of DOOM Eternal, but for 50% off I'm pretty fine with getting a digital copy. The First Tree looks interesting but got really mixed reviews, though for $2.50 I figured I'd give it a go, and I've seen a couple AtariAgers praise Iron Crypticle's Robotron style twin stick shooter gameplay so that was kind of a no-brainer pickup for $2.99. Altogether I ended up snagging six digital games today, so I'm gonna be busy playing new games for awhile!
  2. Picked up a few digital games deep discounted down to $5 each on the Switch eShop today! I got Contra Anniversary Collection, Namco Museum Archives Volume 1 (mostly for the NES version of Pac-Man Championship Edition), and Kholat; which is a first-person survival horror game narrated by Sean Bean about the Dyatlov Pass Incident. Should be pretty spooky!
  3. I won't deny it! I use the calculator function on my watch pretty much every day, and I'm most definitely a nerd. I'm pretty sure that goes for most of us here though, in one way or another!
  4. I'm honestly really surprised by how nice the quality of these modern Game & Watch handhelds are! It feels like Nintendo made everything way nicer than it needed to be, making them something actually practical and fun to play rather than just a neat little trinket to sit on the shelf. The build quality feels really sturdy, the controls are excellent, the screen is bright and crisp and doesn't wash out in the sunlight, and the speaker sounds great too. They really went the extra mile to make it something you'd actually want to play! And play it I have, because I just beat the original Super Mario Bros. for the first time in many years
  5. I wasn't too interested in the Super Mario Bros. Game & Watch when it came out last holiday season, but now that Nintendo seems to be making a series out of them with the Legend of Zelda Game & Watch coming out this November I decided they'd be a fun little commemorative thing to collect and play, so today I went out and picked up one of the last two Super Mario Bros. Game & Watch systems my local Best Buy had in stock. It was clearanced down to $40 too, so score!
  6. It was an exceptionally big week for gaming around here this past week, mostly on account of me getting my paws on a new game that just came out for the Switch! I put just over 30 hours into Winds of Change this past week, doing a full playthrough of it and doing every side quest and conversation there was to be found. I don't usually get into visual novel style games, in fact I think the last one I played and truly enjoyed was 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors on the original Nintendo DS, but Winds of Change really drew me in with it's art style and kept me hooked with a great story and really outstanding voice acting. I was also just delighted to see a game that's... well, "furry" on a mainstream console like the Switch! I was kinda obligated to buy it, and I'm sure glad I did because I can confidently say that it had the best story and writing I've ever seen in any video game bar none. It's obviously a game intended for the furry crowd, but the quality of the writing and storytelling make it a game that non-furries alike could still get a great deal of enjoyment out of providing you aren't put off by the art style. Outside of Winds of Change I just played a bit of Doom 64 on the Switch (having finally gotten a Limited Run physical copy in the mail) and a few arcade games here and there. I played through Garou: Mark of the Wolves a couple more times and beat the extra secret final boss the second time, then played quite a few games of Galaga and a couple games of Ms. Pac-Man and set new all time personal best high scores in both! I managed to get 130,000 points in Galaga and 70,310 points in Ms. Pac-Man, which I was really happy about considering I had never broken 100K in Galaga before and I'm just not very good as Ms. Pac-Man in spite of it being my all time favorite arcade game. That's all the gaming news from around here that's fit to print for this week though, so until next time and as always, best wishes and happy gaming to you and yours Ineligible Galaga (Arcade) - 63 minutes Garou: Mark of the Wolves (Neo Geo MVS/AES) - 46 minutes Ms. Pac-Man (Arcade) - 17 minutes Street Fighter II': Champion Edition (Arcade) - 10 minutes Nintendo Switch Doom 64 - 185 minutes Winds of Change - 1,935 minutes Total Video Game Play Time This Week 2,256 minutes (37 hours 36 minutes) [2,120 minutes eligible] Individual System Play Times This Week Nintendo Switch: 2,120 minutes Arcade: 90 minutes Neo Geo MVS/AES: 46 minutes

  8. I'm improving! Galaga (Arcade): 130,000
  9. Oh heck yes! After all these years I finally broke 100,000 points in Galaga! This game is an absolute classic from the arcade golden age and a ton of fun, but I've never been very good at it so it was super satisfying to finally cross 100k and set a new all time personal best high score! Galaga (Arcade): 102,190
  10. Apologies for the late post this week, life has been kinda hectic lately and I somehow managed to completely forget to do my tracker posts yesterday! Much less playtime than usual this past week on account of the real life stuff (my mom is in hospice and doesn't have long) so I just kinda distracted myself a little here and there with some arcade and Neo Geo games. I played a fair number of new games I had never tried before this past week, and my favorites ended up being The King of Dragons arcade game and Garou: Mark of the Wolves for the Neo Geo MVS/AES. I played though and beat both of them and had a pretty great time! The King of Dragons felt a lot like Capcom's later D&D arcade games, but a bit simpler and more fast paced. I tried all the characters and the elf ended up being my favorite, due to their ability to perform long range attacks and move quickly at the cost of taking a lot more damage than the other characters if they do get hit. Thank goodness for having a free play arcade machine and unlimited credits! As far as my other favorite game of the week went, I have no idea why I waited so long to try Garou: Mark of the Wolves, but now that I have I totally get why this fighting game is so beloved by many! The cast of characters are all wonderfully vibrant and expressive, and the gameplay is top notch fun that's really accessible to newcomers but deep and well balanced with a lot of subtle nuances for fighting game veterans to master. The character sprite animations and pixel art backgrounds are also some of the finest I've ever laid eyes in any era of gaming, right up there with The Last Blade 2. I think I'll be coming back to play Mark of the Wolves many, many more times in the future.

  12. Lucky pickup today! I missed out on the Limited Run pre-order for a physical copy of Doom 64 on the Switch back in October of last year, but Best Buy just got in a handful of copies and I managed to snag one!
  13. I've never been terribly good at Dig Dig, though I've always thought it was really fun to play. So, new personal best high score in the original arcade version of Dig Dig! I was sooooo close to getting that extra life at 40,000 Dig Dug (Arcade): 39,160
