yeah, about the same here. the early-2000s iteration of the insert credit forums is long gone, but it had to have been matt williamson that i first saw talking about the game there. [Link] i've had shun for a while but only recently got a copy of the original. really need to sort out problems with my snes video so i can play it.

i wouldn't say i'm stuck, so much as hitting my skill ceiling? for the time, being, anyway. i've played enough of shun to feel okay in understanding how things work, but knowing how to handle a particular swing or grapple and pulling it off reliably are two different things! there's a great page [Link] on shun's fields and routes that i've mined for advice. gotta practice moreeee

still remember submitting games to IGN so they could be added to the database and i could put them in my collection. they were usually pretty good about adding them? but it always took a while. whole lot easier this way, obviously. i actually saved my 2004 IGN before it got changed, but having your own ten year old game reviews preserved is a mixed blessing. :V

wow, it's not every day you see someone who knows umihara kawase that well. i'm still trying to manage more than the "baby's first clear" route on uk shun congrats!

I was mainly using IGN's collection feature at the time, but since IGN broke theirs,
hah hah OH BOY did they ever. i think i remember drumble or try4ce saying that backloggery was started specifically to emulate/replace the classic ign lists format? lord knows it was never coming back over there.

I didn't even know the SNES had a mouse! Wow, I definitely missed out on some stuff in that console era. If I ever get to the point of playing SNES games, I know what will be at or near the top of my list. I *loved* Fallout 1 and 2 too.

I'm not really sure, I'm only about three hours in myself. If that. iirc, I left off where the kids' dad is sent away to do a thing. The battle system's not the best I've seen in a game. Bit clunky.

That reminds me though, have you played Radiant Historia? It uses a grid-like positioning system allowing you to line up enemies as you see fit to do combos and specials and stuff. It's pretty rewarding, and it's a really good game too.

Maybe I was sick of new vegas at that stage but yeah the DLC just did nothing for me. Dead Money had good characters but the main quest was poor, Honest Hearts was quite fun, I liked the area but the main quest was very short, Old World Blues could have been good but was filled with annoying bullet sponge enemies and lonesome road was just out and out bad with a dreadful ending that made little sense. I enjoyed the main game a hell of a lot more which is probably why the DLC disappointed.

My story seems similar to yours. I mostly Reddit now, though like my IGN days I lurk more than post. Don't worry, you're not the only one cringing over decade-old posts. I was also pretty much solely a Nintendo kid, but after I left IGN I kinda fell out of gaming for a few years. When I came back about 3 years ago I bought a PS3 and caught up on what I'd missed. I've bounced between collecting, playing acclaimed AAA titles to "better" myself, and simply enough playing stuff I like. At the end of the day I still miss the community we had back in the day and want to recapture that somehow, so I think I'll start playing more niche games again. I just got a 3DS and hope to get back into the Nintendo scene, at least for this year.
