    Probably. Lots of resets and no fun. At least I got it done in the end.

    A Hat in Time's OST is too addicting for me, I've listened to it so much the past few days and the DLC content was pretty solid.

    Also finished 3-4 games as of late in a row, I feel so fucking ACCOMPLISHED getting things off my back log. Kind of feel like living up some GC nostalgia with super mario sunshine next or finally getting around to Psychonauts.

    Pros: Hot green haired lady with a big gun.

    Cons: Pretty much everything else.

    The game maps are sparse and you can't sprint, so it takes a long time just to get around and it's easy to go the wrong way wasting time. The combat is repetitive. The music is not at all memorable. You don't even need any of the magic spells except where you are forced to use them on certain bosses (ok, basically just the last one).

    So for two days I've been playing Nioh again and already made the same amount of progess that took me weeks the first time around two years ago. I've beaten bosses I thought unbeatable and finally understand the needlessy conplicated forging/crafting system too so that sure gave me another sense of accomplishment. Going full-on ninja this time was a wise decision as well and the playstyle is high risk, high reward which I like.

    Spider Nest Castle right now farming EXP to get a nice agility damage bonus from my current guardian spirit (a cute bat) . Nioh might nail the mythical aspect of feudal Japan even better than Sekiro for me, it certainly has the anime bonus with all those awesome attacks and guardian spirits to collect like Pokémon.

    Seriously wanna buy the sequel now.

    So I've been thinkin about Nintendo games I never really played, Paper Mario instantly came to mind and HOLY SHIT the gamecube one is expensive as fuck. 100 bucks just for the disc? No way, I'll be going the ISO/softmodded wii route for that. N64 Paper Mario is equally insane in price it seems... and there's a "brand new" VGA verified copy on ebay for 9,999 dollars right now. WHAT THE FUCK.

    I'm walking to my next story mission in Yakuza 2, and I get shanghaied into managing a hostess club against my will. I didn't even like visiting those in the first one, and now I'm being forced to manage one.

    Frigging game.

    That' I've only ever played the N64 version, and I regret not getting it while it was cheap. (Same with Kirby & the Crystal Shard for N64, or whatever it's called.)

    Yeah... I love having physical copies because I can get use out of my consoles that way but I'm not going to spend that much. At this rate I'm seriously considering getting some good flashcarts so I can download roms and play them right on the console with an SD card. I wish I didn't have to do that but the costs are just too insane for some of the actual games plus some listings are mostly blatant fakes ;-;

    Kirby 64 was another game I used to rent when I was a kid! :-)

    Watch out, the hostess game is addictive AF once you get the hang of it. Btw, have you played Yakuza 0 by any chance?

    Well shit, Paper Mario is a bit harder to emulate than one would expect... I keep running into small but annoying graphical glitches. Guess I'll have to find a Wii WAD file and load it that way. Fuuuuck

    I recently finished Manual Samuel, a dark comedy where you have to manually control basic human functions like breathing or blinking, and it's as excruciating as it sounds. The game itself is pretty alright, the humour is pretty alright and all, I like me some dark comedy where a blonde rich fuck has to suffer through the most basic of tasks but not when I'm also suffering alongside his bitch ass. Trying to get the gold trophy on all the time trials had me pull my hair out though I seriously ended up rage quitting due to how garbage the controls are.

    Also, Jesus, that final boss fight was a damn nightmare, who thought it was a good idea he does not deserve a job.

    The annoyingly hippy grim reaper who's trying and failing to do a kickflip throughout the whole game while finding creative ways to fuck with this failed-abortion of a protagonist does make it worthwhile though.

    I haven't gotten all the achievements yet. One of them is a coop acjivement that requires a controller, which I don't have since I broke mine a while back and didn't bother to replace it. And no fucking way in hell I'm touching the time trials again any time soon my temper is limited.

    I wouldn't worry. I'm here to punch things and play the fun minigames. Not...this.

    No. I don't really go in for prequels.

    Started replaying Ocarina of Time and as great of a game as this is I think Wind Waker was honestly better in a few areas. There's some weirdness like finding chests with just standard health pickups in them (though that's mostly early on and in the first dungeon) and some things just tied to purely random chance. For example, if you want a bomb bag upgrade you have to play the bombchu bowling alley game but the prize you get is picked at random... and only after you pay and some of the prizes are straight up stupid. You could be trying to win the bomb bag upgrade or the heart piece but instead it'll decide to make regular bombs your prize even though you can just walk to the nearby store and outright buy some. Don't even get me started on the gravedigging game where you can accidentally have the gravekeeper dig the pavement and thus find nothing (and the prize being random if you dig in the right spots). Another negative is that exploration, at least at first, is very slow due to being restricted to moving on foot in the early sections.

    With all that said this is still a game with many positive qualities to it. The visuals are still quite nice to look at especially at sunsets and the game controls really well for something from the late 90s. The various minigames are also quite fun even if the prize systems are a bit random. This game also just has some really well designed dungeons which are always the highlight of these games for me. On top of that you get a story that honestly gets better and better as the years go on due to how just about all of these games are connected with the lore and playing these games for about 20+ years means I'm pretty invested in the overarching story at this point.

    And the soundtrack is timeless. Excellent shit.

    I've honestly been a lot harder on Ocarina of Time recently, I've replayed it maybe once or twice but I usually end up just going to Majora's mask instead and that game has more interesting puzzles to me. Not that I don't enjoy OoT, I still do but I'm not sure I love it as much when I did as a kid compared to other legend of zelda games.

    Egorapter's video I still think about every time and it makes some pretty fair criticisms against the game:

    That said though, Gerudo valley is still the best zelda theme ever to me:

    Looking at your recent activity, you have a lot of hair-pulling stuff on your plate at the moment. This, fucking 10 Second Ninja X* and A Story About My Uncle. Yiiikes.

    I just got out of a recent spiel of frustrating stuff myself, otherwise I'd probably start Manual Samuel too. Had been eyeing it for a while, and getting it for free from HB helped.

    (*Funny thing about this one, though: getting X rank on the very first stage was more difficult to me than any of the other ones. Each time I failed that one I was facepalming just thinking about everything I'd still need to do afterwards, but it only got easier after that bump. Still pretty annoying, though)

    One would think I'm supposed to be playing games to unwind while I have exams [​IMG]

    Plan was supposed to be to go back and get any unfinished achievement in the games I completed before but I'm starting to question myself now. Might stick to the few point and click games I have for now until I'm seeing red less.

    Looks like Pikmin 3 is coming to Switch. I wonder if the controls will be a bit better cause I remember the demo on Wii U having some annoying controls which is why I didn't buy it.

    As much of a Fate fanboy as I am, I never really got into F:GO. Haven't watched the anime, either since I don't really have the time. That being said, I'm glad quarantine introduced me to the one gacha game using my money to produce some bomb ass music

    Never thought I'd be as addicted to Chinese mobile games as I am to Arknights, but here I am.
