Wow, will I finish out a year on this site with a relatively clear Now Playing? Maybe.

Just finished Mario Odyssey. Well, beat the final big platforming challenge. I don't know if I have enough interest to get all of the moons, but if I do return to it, it'll be a few months down the road. Really enjoyed the game, but I would rather have had more substantial segments for moons rather than a lot of them just being spread everywhere and anywhere. I liked completing a task for them, rather than them be empty calories to fill up the more open design of these worlds. I ended on 709, still a long way from having every one of them, but there didn't need to be this many when half of them are without substance.

Not sure where I want to go from here. I'm free from Monster Hunter for the time being, until March at least lol. But I want to roll through some different and interesting stuff. Demon's Crest and Brain Lord were recent finishes, stuff I wanted to clear for a long time. More like that I suppose.

Aw man, Mendel Palace. Another hidden gem I discovered playing on Console Classix back in the day. Heckuva game by Game Freak, published by Hudson Soft.

Bloody hell, I can't believe I neglected this for so long. I _think_ I've got all the updates. I guess it can be summed up as

"Played a lot of Monster Hunter Iceborne, now playing a lot of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate."

Drakengard 2 is an in progress game. To get new endings, unlike the rest of the series, you have to beat the entire game again and again on harder difficulties available only after beating it the first and second time. I'm like 2/3 the way through the third playthrough, I was working on this a couple of months ago but at some point I had to say to myself "I have to step away from this for a while" and so I did. I'd like to write at length about this game, for better or worse, so I do intend to return soon.

Just cleared Hard mode of Gunstar Heroes, a lot of fun.

Going to work on Super Nova (Darius Force) next because while I've cleared a lot of Darius games, somehow this title I picked up near to when I started collecting got brushed aside.

I'm thinking, against my better judgement, to finally putting B.O.B. out of its misery, too.

Hope you're doing well. Stay safe, and take care.

Haven't posted here in a couple of months, even though I've been collecting and playing stuff. Don't normally let it get this far gone.

Mostly been playing Monster Hunter Iceborne, but have made sure to clear a handful of titles monthly.

Just picked up a Switch and more crucially, Mario's Time Machine (NES) ha ha. So, some new stuff forthcoming.

Oh, just some housekeeping to mention. I recently switched a bunch of "Game By/Color" titles to just "Game Boy" using stealth update. So if any Game Boy titles show up in weird places, it was a misclick on my part. When I started my backloggery I'm pretty sure I went with GB/C because there were no separate options at the time? Either way, it's more accurate now.

After a decade+ of hosting my banner and avatars on my old Photobucket, suddenly they had obnoxious watermarks over them defeating the one purpose Photobucket even still had. So I'm getting with the times, they're on imgur for the time being XD.

That trip was damned from the outset; my lady was on edge from the moment we touched down, and that never really went away. Poor thing had 2 panic attacks in the few days we spent there; it's a lovely city, but we didn't get to enjoy it. It wasn't a total loss, since right before the second one, she got this AMAZING picture with Andee Frizzell, looking like some motherly goddess giving her a warm smile, as she stares in wonder up at her. Either way, when it's economical, train is THE way to travel, hands down. We'll be going by train to Chicago in June, and I'm already looking forward to waking up to morning mists rising from the farmlands; it's so romantic. I've theorized that the custom icon needs to be made in 16-color format in order for it to work, but I haven't messed around with that enough to see if I could get that working, despite having icon-making software. But no, you're not alone; EVERYONE I know who's even heard of the game has had that same issue.

I have what I call "fog storage". It's like cloud storage, but it's not online; it's on about 5 different physical devices, most of which are computers, but I have a 1TB external hard drive that I've nicknamed "The Monster"... seems a lot less applicable when the thing I'm using to type this message out to you is equal in size... Anyway, I have things EVERYWHERE, but they're all crazy backed up, especially my music collection. This also prevents me from every having to dig up and resurrect any old computers I might have sitting around. Memories and embarrassment, you say? Sounds like the collection of videos that my sister and I made together when she got her first Mac, including the aptly-titled "My Shitty Movie", which has its own theme song.

The night was basically lost when I passed out on the bathroom floor, but the next day, Man... THAT was a good day! I still really enjoy Castle of the Winds, even though, to this day, I've yet to meet anyone who ever got that custom character icon thing to work; it may be one of gaming's greatest mysteries, that. I do have the floppies backed up on several hard drives, so I could theoretically run the game just fine, but DOSBox is something I've yet to figure out. When we went to Vancouver in September, I was so ready for it - I'd even managed to figure out FDS patching, which requires cracking open the actual rom with a hex editor and adding or removing a header; let me tell you: that's like staring into the eye of the goddamn cosmos and trying to make sense of it, but I did it - aaaaaaand the TSA stole my laptop. Not confiscated; stole. I got it back (you better BELIEVE I did!), but I didn't have it on the trip, when I had the time to work on figuring it out. Played some Shovel Knight: Spectre of Torment, though; it was awesome. Some day, though... maybe once I convert all of my PS2 memory cards into a format that emulators can use, so that I have digital backups of all my stuff, because I'm on my third PS2 already. Game Cube and Wii, too, if I can. Oh, and that custom version of NES Final Fantasy I want to make... I think I may have too many projects.

No problem! I wound up dropping it, but maybe you'll get out of it what I didn't.
