FYI: on Dragon Quest 11 S; if you change between 3D and 2D mode, you will be returned to the beginning of the last chapter completed.  It's not an instant back and forth, like on Wonder Boy.

Beat Link's Awakening last night... wonderful remake. Hope GREZZA (the company that did the remake) will be allowed to do a remake of the original or *gasp* Zelda II

This motivated me to get back into BOTW. It's just such a huge game it's intimidating sometime.

Finished another S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: SoC playthrough with the Complete mod. For a game that's more than 12 years old and whose development started as far back as 2001, the atmospherics and detail to real world locale still hold up amazingly well, despite a notoriously buggy game engine. Still stands as one of my all-time faves.

Might hop onto Brigador next. Supposed to be pretty good.

I've been really into puzzle games. Good puzzle games. I prefer first person, but there aren't many of those that aren't garbage and I think I ran out of titles in that genre to play.

 

Right now I'm playing Recursed. This is a 2d platformer with the ultimate brain-fuck mechanics. I don't want to explain it because part of the fun is jumping into it and learning the mechanics as they come. it's about recursion, it's weird, it's well made.

 

I Finished.

1. Quern which is in incredible myst-like game. Really good, probably better than obduction IMO.

2. Supraland. This is a reason this game is 10/10 on steam. One of the coolest first person puzzle games I've played. It's a puzzle/metroidvania/FPS game that takes place in a child's sandbox. It's insane. Play it. It rules.

3. Obduction. Really good.

4. The witness. Really good.

5. The Talos Principle (+ road to gehenna). This is a good game and the DLC is even better. I need to replay this soon, it's been a few years and I missed out on the bonus stuff.

6. Anti-Chamber. This game ruled.

7. I've started many zachtronics games. All of them are cool in their own way. TIS-100, opus magnum. Haven't played exapunks yet.

8. portal 2.

9. Quantum condundrum - decent but not the greatest.

10. Myst/Riven

11. Minit (added last minute because I was thinking of outer wilds)

Games I want to finish but haven't:

1. Outer Wilds - This game is basically minit but instead of 60 seconds it's 20 minutes and the fucking sun explodes and you die and start over. And it's insane and chock full of exploration and secrets and I still haven't beat it because you have to be in the right mood to dig into it but it's basically a big open-ended exploration game that has puzzle elements. It's just very cool, I don't want to spoil anything about this game because it's just that amazing and surprising as it unfolds.

On my list to play:

1. Fish fillets 2 -- yeah this game looks super jank but it's supposed to be really fucking good and hard. pc only.

2. stephen's sausage roll --- Only on pc. Seems to stay eternally at $30 so I'll probably wait on this for a while. Heard it's quite good though.

3. Whenever the supraland sequel/dlc comes out I'll play that, probably what I"m most excited about.

4. baba is you. Heard this is really good, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

5. Obra Dinn, I have heard this described as a puzzle? Still want to play it eventually I just haven't gotten around to it. Loved papers please.

6. Manifold garden. Whenever this game comes out I will be all over it. Looks like Antichamber folded into a hypercube level of crazy.

 

Games I haven't finished because I thought they sucked:

1. Qube - I just, couldn't get into it

2. The Turing Test (got really far in this but the puzzle design is just bad and the puzzles get repetitive and annoying, I can't quite put my finger on it. I'll probably try to finish it because I think I'm near the end it's just a disappointing experience).

Well, well...I haven't played Brain Age since right after I bought my DS Lite back in late 2006. Used to play it on a regular basis then.

And I'm actually considering buying a Switch Lite soon. Might be a good mental workout in the morning on top of my physical ones.

❤️ the best genre. Check out Matthew Brown's games if you haven't yet - especially Hexcells Infinite, one of the best numerical logic puzzlers ever (basically a really, really good version of minesweeper). Also worth playing the other two hexcells games (though I'd start with infinite) and CrossCells. But maybe skip Cypher - it's interesting but a little too obtuse to be enjoyable past the first couple puzzle sets imo.

That's the universal AAA game industry standard these days.

w/e PES people usually have a bevy of other character flaws, use android, think their conspicuous consumption of "simply better" products give them a personality etc

Playstation 5 scheduled to be out for Christmas 2020, to feature haptic feedback instead of rumble on controllers, and programmable triggers (developers can program in resistance into each trigger). Ray tracing done by GPU.

But at least those of us who pre-order will get the first official PC release of DOOM 64
