One of my favourite games of all time. You should also check out Blaster Master Zero and Zero 2 on Switch if you have one. Just as good as the original game - better in some ways.

Newest console I have is N64.

 

Played Double Dragon II for the first time in about 15 years earlier tonight. Blew through to the last level on one life and then fell in a pit a bunch of times in the last one.

Lol. I can't wait for the influx of popular YT videos of those impossible levels which don't look fun to play at all.

i really enjoyed mario maker 1. finding good levels was a pain but that’s also a problem of 90% of the uploaded levels being garbage. but eventually you stumble onto a good level + browse the uploaders levels + check their Favourited levels and find more good levels etc. etc.

this sequel will be the end of me !!!

Oh yeah I used to play the game on a daily basis. Most uploads are garbage but I'd look up lists of the best ones. I don't usually get addicted to games that just have custom single player levels but this was an exception. This and all those really good Doom WADs.

It's unfortunate that 95% of the Mario Maker level that go viral are the crazy ones the person who made it can barely beat.

So if anyone really liked Ocarina of Time and likes youtube video essays about stuff, here's a good one on the game which explores underlying themes in the game which aren't necessarily obvious. Well worth the watch if you have 30 minutes to spare.

Speaking of Castlevania, there was this really cool fan game that came out last year called "Simon's Destiny". I beat it some time back, it's pretty fun and free.
Video is a bit loud to start out with. Download in the description.

Void Bastards looks interesting, FTL meets System Shock with a graphical style very similar to XIII's comic cell shading.

Been back on a Borderlands 2 tip with my wee boy recently. Still great.

Nice. Any game that traverses the System Shock vein is an automatic grab for me. Also like the unique Futurama-style graphics.

apparently the cv1 rom is a recalled version that crashes in later stages due to sprite overload

Yes @ subject, but the style of these over-produced yt documentaries really irks me: The generic building piano muzak, timed word art emphasizing the narrators points, quick cuts every second.  I appreciate that its well researched, but then they just drown that effort in buzzfeed style tropes

strafefox's documentaries were the latest to really impress me. Very well produced but also kept the information flowing with no bullshitting.

TBH this essay is more like a well done documentary style than a buzzfeed documentary and doesn't really have that youtube essay clicheness you speak of. Worth the watch for sure. And a lot of the music is good I think you'll like it. It also provides a deeper appreciation for Zelda and Miyamoto and makes me wanna replay some of the older games.

Probably shouldn't have said 'youtube essay' or whatever to describe it. Let me put it this way, if YT essays became more like this one I'd watch a lot more YT essays.

Played through Ninja Gaiden for the first time in quite a while after work.  Pretty rusty, took over an hour and a half to get to the last boss and I died and got kicked back all the way to that green stage.  Didn't have it in me to go through the last 4 or 5 stages again tonight but I should be able to beat it next time.  The last two levels are still pretty tough, just frustrating enough that you feel like you accomplished something when you make it through.

mtg arena is fun as fuck. still technically in beta but it's pretty polished at this point. they've added friend matches now too so you don't just have to get stomped by randos who aren't afraid to p2w. i'll never put a dime of real money into it but it's fun regardless
