Decided to pre-order Street Fighter V, it turns out I did so two hours too late...

Fucking Capcom. You were allowed into the beta as a pre-order bonus and then they put the servers offline indefinitely because they felt it "Wasn't ready yet for the public beta". Okay, pretty surely Street Fighter fans like myself could give less of a fuck and play it anyways no matter how broken it is...

I reverted back to SFIV and my girlfriend decided to play me. She had never played any Street Fighter what so ever before and quickly got frustrated. Me having played with some pretty high level players in my youth (like the founders of shoryuken.com at Sunnyvale Golfland for hours a day) I sort of had an advantage; but God bless her soul, she spent hours just learning out to properly pull off a Dragon Punch in training mode. =)

Also decided to buy Splatoon and have to admit it's pretty fun. My girlfriend loves it.

Yeah it is pretty addictive and light hearted. It's basically a first person shooter for people that don't want to deal with the Counter Strike/Call of Duty/Halo ect. assholes that make up those communities. It has very creative mechanics and it's just one of those games you can pick up and play for a few minutes and have fun with or play for hours and not get annoyed with.

Just started MGS V. I'm liking it so far, still has that classic MGS feel, but so far Keifer Sutherland really hasn't said all that much and I'm about two hours in. He doesn't feel as charismatic as David Hayter, but the game just started and he might surprise me.

Finished LoD for the first time last year. The final boss took over an hour to beat.

I've never played it before either. Picked it up last summer at a garage sale for $10 or something. Now I just need to find a copy of Xenogears and Valkyrie Chronicles in the same fashion.

Got back into Super Mario 3D Land, rolling through the special worlds. Pretty enjoyable so far, though the Tanooki powerup is definitely broken as far as the challenge goes.

Also, finally got around to the Plague of Shadows DLC in Shovel Knight, which allows you to play as Plague Knight. I'm falling in love with the game all over again.

I tried to like the Plague of Shadows DLC but I just don't find Plague Knight to be fun to play as. Glad it was free.

The whole "hold the attack button to charge a jump" thing is admittedly odd. Though I'm quickly getting used to it. Though I keep wanting to shovel-jump on enemies!

I find moving around that way a chore. Maybe I'm just more out of practice as I think but I am dying far more often missing jumps with such an unintuitive method.


I'm not a bad enough dude, but I am an edgy little shit. I'll do what I can.

One of the upgrades you can buy early on slows your decent immensely (think the Dixie Kong helicopter spin), and I've been using that as training wheels.

I haven't formally tested it but I think that Plague Knight takes way more knockback that Shovel Knight on hit. It's felt like enough to mean the difference of falling into a pit or not. Several of Plague Knight's weapons and magic have ridiculous range or area-of-effect; and very early you can acquire a method of absorbing health from enemies. So I think this was the developers' way of trying to balance stuff out.

Just got Star Wars: Battlefront, pretty good looking/fun game.

Still need to get through Halo 5, Fallout 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Starcraft 2 and a bunch of other games but have no time. Should probably stop buying games that I only play for a few hours before the next one comes out but that just isn't going to happen.

Nobody on Fallout 4? Christ.

I'm playing on low quality, but it's engaging so far. The stories you find on computers are the best part for me, as usual.. The intro is pretty good too, but it's so abrupt. Maybe that's part of the hook.

I've been all about that Yoshi's Woolly World of late. Not sure I have a better word to describe that game with than "delightful."

The thing I like most about Woolly World is that Nintendo went all the way with the premise. Even the "TM" sign on the logo is sewn into a fabric tag.

Splatoon is a lot of fun.

Agreed. The attention to aesthetics is so spot on throughout.

Currently addicted to Resident Evil: Outbreak and Outbreak: File #2. I've never really understood the hate a lot of people have for these games. I'll also note that one of my biggest complaints about the series as a whole is that most of the games are way too easy, and both games on Very Hard difficulty are easily the hardest the series has ever been, and probably will be.

It's been my understanding that the servers have been down for years (and I don't have the tech savvy to mess with the newer fan servers), so I'm playing solo.

Someone got me a Microsoft Points card for Christmas, so I got the remastered edition of the REmake (originally for Gamecube, now on 360). Normally I'm pretty skeptical of remasters/re-releases of games in general (I haven't played/owned a lot that I felt like I really needed), but I'm actually impressed with how much better the game looks. I never really noticed until I played the new one, but the original Gamecube version has a lot of noise/fog-like low-resolution problems that made a lot of the details hard to see (or at least it did when I played it on the giant CRT-TV in my mom's living room). The new version looks like a work of art; all of the textures have been revamped, and the lighting actually looks even creepier than before. And since I don't own a Gamecube, I'm just happy to be able to play it again.
