Thanks! That is kind of weird, especially considering how long it took us to find each other.

Summer's no fun when you're an adult; it's hot and gross, and you don't get 3 months off anymore. Maybe it's better if you have central air. Heh, I've been doing the same at work; sleep is the enemy! :pickle:

Those are things that actually fucking happened in the Lords of Shadow Trilogy. You're not alone; I also can't even. Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon on the N64 is fantastic; it's everything that Zelda should've been with a wacky, overly Japanese coat of paint. Goemon's Great Adventure has its problems, though; it's mostly a 2D Platformer (a fucking brutal one, if I recall correctly), but it has weird things like footraces that don't belong or work particularly well. I might give it another shot someday, but it's not as good in my eyes. Such a great premise, too; I love the idea of a Mega Man game with Street Fighter moves as weapons. Hell, I'd love to see a JRPG based on Street Fighter like that. I've only ever played one other Mega Man fangame, and that was Quint's Revenge. The level design was so bad that I didn't get far before jumping ship, though. If we're counting hacks, though, I've played dozens, some of which were better than the originals.

I don't remember if you did, either, but I was at least fortunate enough that I only had to escape her once. In a way, I'm glad that I fucked up as badly as I did, because then, I had to beat Asgore completely through my own skill. That prepared me for Omega Flowey, that little fucker. I kept getting splattered all over the walls within seconds, until I did just well enough to break out and finish him in one perfect run; hadn't even gotten to the hearts before that. Best of luck on that run, whenever you attempt it.

I ended up getting a root canal a week ago, it really wasn't anywhere near as bad as everyone makes it out to be. I only had lingering pain a few hours later, and then it went away the next day. I felt nothing during it, they did a super good job of numbing. I think getting the crown will actually be worse, just going by the fact that feelings just feel weird, I don't like the vibration at all.

Going up to SF again this weekend, probably bringing at least the RetroPie and maybe a PS4 game or two. Not sure if I'll bring the Switch, since we beat Bomberman, and I showed him BOTW and he doesn't seem to like it much.

Nah, the race was in August. I ended up winning, but just barely. I mean, my main competition throughout the race was CephiYumi, we're pretty much both way better at classic RE games than Drumble and Try4ce, at least on stream. In the RE2 race about a year or two ago, I beat the game in like 2 and a half hours, and then I think for the rest of the time, I played Sonic 3 & Knuckles? I forget, maybe that was after I beat Sonic 3 & Knuckles in like 2 hours. Anyway, Try4ce and Drumble didn't even finish RE2, but then again, RE2 is by far my best RE game, I can consistently get a time of around 2 hours, my best is like 2 hours 8 or something? I actually may get RE2 for game.com, even if it's probably horrible. I mean, I feel like I gotta, since it's the only version of RE2 I don't have, and Linkmaster playing the CDi Zelda games added to my desire, since that's probably my best equivalent to that

It's great, I just wish the save state feature worked better. A lot of times when I do it, it just bugs out and loses the save data, so I have to start over. Maybe I'll just use it in games that have hard saves. I dunno, I'm sure I'll figure something out.

I've actually been streaming Mania, I'm in Titanic Monarch. I went until probably Oil Ocean without dying, but those deaths were due to being crushed, which I still am kind of bad at. I did pretty horribly at the Metallic Madness 1 boss, I got crushed maybe 2-3 times. I still need to finish my Knuckles run and do a Tails run, but so far I've got all the emeralds as S&T on PS4 and Switch.

I got back...September 5? So far, so good, actually it's a lot better this time so far. It's almost too easy, very different from being stressed out every day due to my workload...I usually finish what I need to do by 11am, help out other places until 4:30pm, and then finish my actual job the next day at 11am. Whatever, easy money, and I like learning new stuff. The mega bitch seems to have calmed down, probably cause I talked to HR about her, but I'm still kinda pissed that I haven't been told that it won't happen again. I'm kind of really sad because not only did he leave, two other people I really liked left too, and now...I actually only have like one person that I remember from back when I started in 2012.

I think the whole thing with that was it just ran too fast on the Twin Pack from the 90s. It runs fine on Steam.

I love how you can climb everything in BOTW, but HATE HATE HATE how if it's raining, you slide off everything, usually to your death if it's a cliffside or something. It would have been nice if they put in an Ocarina or something to change the weather, the rain seems so random and unpredictable.

I'll probably pick it up again on PS4 if it hits PS4 in a few months (Dead Rising 4 hits PS4 in Dec, timed exclusive math from Xbone)

The main difference from CD and CD++ is ++ adds a homing attack, which I find most useful in the Metal Sonic race. It also seems to have a SLIGHTLY different opening (more like one extra scene) along with worse quality and different syncing with it. I started streaming MNSG a while ago, I just beat the first Impact boss, which I had a TOOOON of trouble with as a kid, I could never get past him. Funny thing is it only took one try this time. I'm still scared of the Sudden Impact training, mostly cause I had even worse memories of that, but it'll maybe be fine?

I might do more of these "classic" themes, maybe a few for big anticipated games, but there really isn't one on the same level as Yakuza Kiwami and Sonic Mania until probably Yakuza 6. Sonic Forces might be good, I'm also pretty excited for that new Neptunia, but not anywhere near the same level of hype as it was for those two. Actually, I'm pretty excited for that new Ni No Kuni, and...God of War, though I kinda don't like the open world part. Obviously, Resident Evil 2 remake, and Yakuza Kiwami 2 (I'm confident we'll get it either as TGS in a few days or PSX in December). I'm a bit curious about that free RE7 DLC in December too. My wishlist now rates my hype level for games, I try to keep it mostly updated.

The Shield Portable isn't being made anymore, which I think was a dumb move, since I definitely love it a whole lot more than the Shield TV...but if you go that route, it's pretty much the same, only not portable obviously. I think there's a new Shield TV that came out earlier this year, but the old one was....2015? I don't know whether I'd recommend that over the RetroPie, honestly, The ShieldTV might be a bit more powerful, but the RetroPie is so much cheaper and also is easier to set up the emulators, I think. I haven't really come across a real problem on my RetroPie regarding performance, other than N64 games, which is at a weird place in general anyway. I've got Dolphin up and running too. Might take out my GCN games for Genesis (Nomad) again

I ended up just flashing the Sigma with OrangePi, you know, the thing they stole. The OS they put on there is so bad, it freezes a lot and some games just don't work on it. OrangePi is way better, plus it has pretty amazing classic gaming background music. I've kinda stopped using it in favor of my normal RetroPie though for lots of reasons, mainly because my RetroPie has more USB ports, can use bluetooth controllers (probably, my OrangePi's bluetooth doesn't work), all my saves are on RetroPie, there are some emulators that don't work well on OrangePi (I tried Sega Rally for GBA and it was fucking AWFUL, ran at like 2 frames per second), and my capture card doesn't really like the Sigma, so I end up having to reconnect the card for it to even show sometimes. I had a much bigger problem with my capture card (I was originally going to stream my first play of Sonic Mania, but I was having terrible capture card issues then), but I ended up fixing that my switching USB ports...I think that was most of it, I really have no idea what was going on with it. The Retron 5 is just a horrible console, at least the Sigma CAN be good if you put OrangePi on it. Also, the controlls are AWFUL, not really the same level of shittiness as the Retron 5's, but VERY cheap and break VERY easily. I had the select button on one stop working BEFORE I EVEN USED IT.

I've mainly been using it to play the Super Bomberman games, a few Sonic hacks, Bomberman '93, arcade games, Lunar 2 (I've gotten pretty far, actually), and we started Mario Adventure last time I was up there.

I probably would have done it, but...I really don't think I'd have any actual use for the overclocking, since I don't think it works for actual DC games, just emulation. I dunno. I would think it would help loading times, but I was told it only worked for emulation.

I still have yet to play my Zelda 1 randomizer, even though I've played like 4 or 5 LttP randomizers. Also need to get around to my SMB3 one. I've done one or two Pokemon randomizers, and those were very fun, it even has an option to make every pokemon appear in the wild, which would be VERY nice if I actually cared about the pokedex. I ended up catching quite a few just for fun and to see what types they all were, since the randomizer randomized the types too. I really don't know what they were going for when they thought breakable weapons would be a good idea, especially how easy it is to break them. It just really pisses me off.

I loved Sonic Mania! It's one of my favorite games from this year! How are you liking it? Also about Yooka-Laylee, I actually won the game for free in a giveaway by Playtonic Games themselves for the ultra rare Yooka-Laylee 64-Bit Edition which is an N64 themed collector's edition that has the game loaded onto an N64 cartridge and it features an N64 box and a signed art book and everything! It's pretty awesome, can't wait to play it soon! Happy gaming!
It's dangerous to go alone! Take a yoshi!
