Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair PAL
100% mission completion (including online-exclusive missions) in 471:30. All weapons (and thus platinum) in 600:30:34. I DID NOT SUCCUMB TO BUYING DLC

Updated about 1 week ago

☆☆★★★ EDF 4.1 may have fancier graphics, but it's deeply flawed compared to the Vita games in the series. Missions take way too long to finish, the classes and difficulty curve are very poorly balanced (Air Raider has been rendered almost completely worthless), and the community is full of people who just want someone to swoop in and carry them through the whole game instead of working together (they'll stubbornly ignore messages asking for a certain level of completion before joining). 5/10
Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders from Planet Space PAL
76/78 full medals for Impossible difficulty. Aiming to be the first person in the world to complete it.

☆★★★★ It's hard to review this, because it's very average on a technical level and lacking in map variety, but the deliberate B-movie atmosphere of it is humorous and the fun factor (IF you have friends to play online with) is very high. Clearing the whole game solo is insanely difficult, but doable as long as you're willing to put a massive amount of time into grinding. EDF2 has more content and smoother animation than 2017, but some people experience random disconnects online. 8/10
Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove
Trying to beat Shovel Knight without checkpoints (have beaten the PC version). Plague of Shadows untouched. Specter of Torment beaten (96/100 skulls).

★★★★★ A brilliant game that improves upon the formula of classic 8-bit platformers (mainly Mega Man, Castlevania and DuckTales) has only been made better by sizeable free DLC offerings that are wonderful stand-alone titles in their own right. Just a couple of small complaints - there are some sections where you have to drop to the screen below, with no indication that it's safe to do so, and the difficulty may be too high for some players - keep me from giving this a perfect score. 9/10
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth: Hacker's Memory (English subs) PAL

Shinobu, Maya and Sisters routes all cleared with true ending. Actually plays smoothly if you overclock.

☆★★★★ This game is much better than it first seems. The loading times can be a bit long (45 seconds to begin a stage), and the framerate is frankly poor - unless you overclock the Vita to improve the performance. However, the music is excellent, the story is surprisingly decent and heartwarming, and the comedy and pure fun factor brought a smile to my face often while playing. There are also lots of routes and secrets to encourage multiple playthroughs. Seriously, give Gal Gun a try. 7/10

Master of Unlocking: Majority of games are completed
On Fire: 3 beat or complete in a row
Man, ManFwibbles, the Turbo Mini has shooters galore. Some of these have to be really valuable in the wild.

I'm happy that I was able to play the arcade version of Dragon Spirit, but given the slightly large hitbox for the dragon (getting the shrink powerup is a must) and the fact that certain areas are just littered with obstacles, I didn't think it was that great, plus it was missing, like, two levels from the arcade version. But man, I sure do like booting it up and playing it a little.

It baffles me why there are once again a version of Space Harrier and Fantasy Zone. Sure, they're classic, and sure, the Turbo versions can be a curiousity, but at the same time... [yawn] whatever. They're still the same games we've been seeing semi frequently in the past few years. Maybe they should have put in Space Fantasy Zone instead. Even if it's a prototype, they totally could have finished it.

Even more depressing is the heavy language barrier on some of the JP games. Jaseiken Necromancer looks like it could have been a neat RPG, and Snatcher... we finally get a rerelease of Snatcher and it's in moonspeak... waaaaaaah...

Speaking of, when am I going to get back to Snatcher on SEGA CD? Last I saw I was in a bar with people dressed as Konami characters! Oh, you should have seen it. Simon and Dracula, Bill and Lance, Sparkster, Goemon, even a character from Lethal Enforcers! Holy smokes! The Konami references the game makes are extraordinary.

So Daniel Ibbertson's pronunciation of Shenmyu bugs you huh? In his latest video where he unboxes the Alien Storm + Alien Soldier record, he pulls out an actual Junes (Persona 4) bag, which is nothing short of badass. The problem? He pronounced it wrong.

"And today, inside my SEGA Joons bag; who else is excited for Persona 4?"

I mean I get he's not an RPG guy, but come on, "joons?" He's gotta be doing this stuff in poipose.

Speaking of, thoughts on the Vita game Persona 4 Golden being put on Steam? Things seem like they're getting less and less sacred nowadays as more and more stuff begins to become readily available. Either way, that's great news for Steam users, to have one of the best PS2 games available on PC. Now they should make a Switch port then they'll really bring in the dough.

In regards to the hypothetical remake of Grandia, I was playing FFVIIR and just seeing everything, you going into the building and it doesn't pause to load, for instance, every character being vibrant and full of life, some new attention to detail... but then again, I was thinking I'd rather have it be fully animated like in Monster Boy. In fact, they oughta make a new Shining Force or Phantasy Star like that.

Playing more Grandia HD Collection. "Welcome, he who holds the Spirit Stone..."

And Grandia II? Man, oh, man, I want more Dreamcast games on the Switch! Right now!

Dude, Tokyo Xanadu has the same interface as Cold Steel, nooch.

Addendum: Wow, ManFwibbles, you got a great new theme. Nice colors. I dunno why but it kinda reminds me of a Super Game Boy color palette.

And hey, ya 11 year Backloggiversary is almost here!

[wagging finger] Ah ah ah. First, you gotta make a whiny sounding tweet over it, using all the characters, and start a hashtag CancelKonami or Konamiisoverpwarty. You know you'll have succeeded when at least five people make videos about your tweet in order to foither get the woid out, and then before ya know it, there'll be ten articles saying that Konami is gonna update the game and change it to a male enemy, to which another controversy will spawn in regards to wanting to giving in to needless censorship and then somebody will want to push for an all female Sunset Riders reboot to which the idea gets downvoted to oblivion.

Yeah, baby, yeah! Oh, how I miss 1999-2002.

What if they did a full blown remake of the first Grandia? (Or hell, the second too.) I'm talking about in the same vein as FFVII Remake. Spending the money to make it look shiny, refine the combat in a way, you know what I mean?

So Fwibbm'n, you're not fond of Working Designs' localizations? Is it the sass and the pop culture references?

Here's a sample of their sass: [Link]
“NEVER give up. If I ever see anybody giving up, I go over to them and kick them repeatedly in the face.”
