Not sure if I'm in the minority, but my favorite "sims" game is still the original Sim City. =/

I feel you. I played Sim 3000 and 2000 as a kid. I've never played the original though I used to watch my uncle play it.

Took three tries but I did it.

 

 

EDIT: if you recognize this then you have my sincere condolences.

Damn, that looks familiar! I can't put my finger on what game it is though (I know it's a NES game though)

Played a ton of Gato Roboto... this game is sooo good! The jumping mechanic is a bit slippery; it's easy to overshoot a platform.

Currently stuck on the third encounter with a certain creature... I won't spoil it but it's pretty obvious/comical. Damn pattern memorization skills faltering as I get older.

Picked up the new(ish) Yoshi game for switch. The demo was fun enough so I sprung for it. I don't REALLY need another new game but what the heck eh.

is that ghosts and goblins or one of it's sequels or spinoffs maybe? Since it's an end screen, could be a cinematic.

Picked up Gato Roboto for $1, it's pretty fun.  Agree the jumping needs work though.  I do love these monochromatic Gameboy-looking indie games.

No... I think it was a game starring a guy in a suit of armour (not G&G), but the damn name escapes me!

How'd you get it for a buck? On the Switch, or PC?

Sega is going the extra mile with its Sega Genesis Mini. On Tuesday, the company announced 12 more games for the retro console — including unexpected bonuses Tetris and Darius — bringing the total number of titles on the Sega Genesis Mini to 42, two more than originally promised.

In an even bolder move, Sega revealed that it’s releasing a handful of accessories for the Genesis Mini: recreations of the Sega CD, Sega 32X, and a Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge. All of these can stack to recreate the infamous “Sega Tower of Power,” only on a more diminutive scale.

I wonder if Sega is going to go the extra mile and use emulator code illegally too…

I was also excited to see they added the ultra-rare Sega version of Tetris to the lineup!

Fun Fact: I had a knockoff Megadrive cart of this back in the 90's - found it in Los Angeles in a game shop and being a Tetris nut I was amazed to find out Sega had a version of Tetris (first in the arcade, then ported to the MD and then quickly cancelled (rumour has it only around 10 legit copies exist worldwide of the official release)).

Here is my knockoff copy and the legit release:

They can't do any worse than Sony did with the abysmal Playstation mini...

Then again, this is Sega we're talking about...

RE: Tetris - turns out this is NOT the Mega Drive version, but a remake of the arcade version. There's also some controversy surrounding the version of Darius on it (apparently, Darius never came out for the Mega Drive as at the time it would have required a 32mB ROM, which would have made it ridiculously expensive back then) as some are claiming it is a fan-made version by Hidecade even though Sega is insisting M2 did the port duties.

In other news, there's the latest trailer for the Soulsvania-like game Blasphemous:

The Switch port of Virtua Racing is said to be the best (yes, I know that's not the point when you're using a MISTer)

I hope the 4 player online co-op in Pokémon works better than it does in Mario Tennis Aces.  You can sit in a lobby forever waiting, and then someone usually drops their connection during gameplay anyway.

i looked at videos of that Switch version and for whatever reason, the work they did to the game just makes it look real disorientating and makes me feel sick.
