"There's too much side stuff"

I KNOW! That's the issue with post-PSX RPGs, they try to cram way too much stuff into them. Lookit Rogue Galaxy! Destroy a certain number of enemies, item crafting ( "now that's what I call a mastuhpiece!" ), AND bug monster fighting? Can't I just poay through the main game? Grandia III didn't have that nonsense (but apparently it was laughed at by Japanese audiences thanks to everything but the battle system.) It just gets worse from there. Persona 3 and 4 started the calendar system, so now Trails of Cold Steel and Tokyo Xanadu hafta do it too.

There's a lot that I like about Xenon Valkyrie+, despite some quibbles with the main portion of the game; however, the final boss is really starting to tick me off at this point. I wish it didn't suddenly switch to a whole different game mode for him, because I know exactly what keeps going wrong (character just stops moving and gets one-shotted by any stray bullet) without being able to test why it happens (I think I'm somehow getting caught on the back edge of the screen) without playing for an hour and a half to get to him.

I remember when Castlevania Chronicles came out. It coulda been the first three games getting the All-Stars treatment, but instead it was just the first one. Like, c'mon, they totally could've made Simon's Quest more user friendly.

It was also noted as being the last "classic" Castlevania release until they shifted focus to basing the rest of the games on SotN, and because the polished 3D era was on the rise, making 3D Castlevanias. Alas, last I recall, the last new classic one they did was The Adventure Rebirth. Strange that they haven't made a collection of their downloadable titles from that bizarre era that was Wii / PS3 / 360. Think about it. All the Rebirths, Rocket Knight, Hard Corps Uprising... they TOTALLY COULD!

Completing the backlog would mean having to scrounge up games I rented, no longer own, or no longer have the hardware to play, which would be a colossal undertaking. That zero in the unfinished column right this moment is good enough for me.

I don't think I'm going to go wild on games-buying from here on out, I tend to only buy things that I plan on getting to in the near future. Not having Steam is probably going to help, as that's where a lot of people's backlog bloat seems to come from.

Way 2 go, Sobou. You pulled through on Taito's staple arcade shooter series. Even if you used suspend points, you already played more than I have. (I've been busy with other games.)

I better get going!

I'm sorry to hear they're not making a good a good first impression on you. The only suggestion I can make is to play the games on Easy.

Hmm... were ya aware of the advanced moves you can do? There are macros you can do in all the TMs except the first that can do things like shield you from damage for several seconds, or place mines, or use freeze missiles. It's really innovative and makes it feel more like a "fighting game in cars", which was the exact image the makers were goin' fer.

I might hafta try Vigilante 8 now. I've heard good things about it.

By the time WWE Crush Hour came out, the industry had begun moving on, so no more vehicular combat games except for the next two TM games.

There are plenty of good choices fer pre-2001 US games. LucasArts adventures like Maniac Mansion or Sam & Max, and Zombies Ate My Neighbors, or maybe Secret of Evermore, or perhaps Baldur's Gate? I need to play that on PS4 sometime.
Too many games, so little time.
