Minion of Bak'laag: 100+ unfinished games
Focus: Only playing one game
Just removed four games from my Now Playing, one of which has literally been there without an update since 2014.

Don't worry, Skyward Sword, I do plan to and you still, but let's be honest: it'll happen when it happens. Don't worry, Cuphead, Super Mario 3D World, and Bowser's Fury, I'll or each of you just as soon as my wife finishes with Stardew Valley and let's me play with my Switch again, but it ain't happening until then. Don't worry, Dark Souls, I'll get back to you...someday. You know why I'm not playing you right now.

In the meantime, I've added those games to my Hit List on the side description.

Thank you for your compliments. I appreciate 'em!

As far as getting good enough to 1CC the original Contra. I can't say how long exactly it took me to get there, but with the help of the infamous 30 lives Konami code you can learn the game that way and eventually you can take the training wheels off and see how you do from there. That's how I learned that game. Same with Super Contra as well. However, Super C (the North American version) only has a 10 lives code, but the Japanese version has the same code and it give you 30. Obviously not every game has cheats that can help you learn to 1CC it in this way. With those you really just have to learn 'em the hard way.

Super Contra on Famicom is my most recent 1CC capture that I put on YouTube. Check it out if you're interested!

I liked Heroes 4 quite a bit as well, but unlike Heroes 3 I've never really felt like I wanted to go back and play it again once I was finished with it.

Probably shouldn't have spent that hour looking, I was already aware of another at [Link] I just don't think it was uploaded there all those years ago when I was first looking for it.

If you could find the fanart version I'm using in an hour though, that would be impressive, as at this point I don't believe it exists on the internet any longer.

It's some fanart of the forest scene from Chrono Trigger with sprites from games I like in positions 'similar' to the original characters. I couldn't find a copy of the forest background without the sprites in it from Chrono Trigger that's also large enough to use a banner, so I used this piece of fanart instead.

I've wanted to update it for a while with some different sprites, but I can't for the life of me find where the original art is any longer.

Hey there! Many thanks for that comment
Yeah, I had started the game a few years back, but life got in the way and I had to put it down ... I recently got the itch to play a good story-driven RPG again and I remembered it having a lot of promise. I also noticed that Eiyuden Chronicles kickstarter was recently announced - called the spiritual successor to the Suikoden series. That made me think --hmmmmm yteah I should really get back to that game and see if I can finish it.

Yeah, I've heard a lot about how everyone loves Suikoden II to pieces... It's definitely on my Want list, but at ~$300 for a physical copy these days, it might be a while!

Anyway, sofar Suikoden is awesome! I'm loving the story, the gameplay and the artwork (love the sprites so much better than the early 3d polygons).

This is my first time playing the DS version, so I can't really comment on the extra dungeons post-game.
But so far I love the new menus, the touch-screen maps, new localization. The extra content from the PS1 version is also very welcome!

Free is free is right! I downloaded it myself. I played the first Uncharted and although I thought it was good it didn't sell me on the series. I had no intention on picking up the sequels, BUT as you said: free is free!

It feels one-note in it's gameplay, but it's a very good one-note. You could say it's "one-note worthy." :D

Hi! Thanks for adding me! Always happy to talk to new people here! I love your Okami theme!

And you also have great taste in gaming!

So, how do you like Skyward Sword so far?

Hey! I saw you from GodzillaDB's multitap and just like him I really liked your banner. That's pretty much why I added I think. Thanks for adding me back by the way!

It's actually not my first time playing Jet Set Radio. I've beaten it a multiple times on my Vita few years ago and I've been a fan of it since then. I've just rebought it on Steam because I wanted to play it on a bigger screen and it was dirt cheap. So that's how I'm replaying it again.

Hi! I saw you were an active member in other peoples' multitaps. You're playing Dark Souls, which I've thoroughly enjoyed. Beat them all, then went to complete DS3/BB/Sekiro. Still have some cleaning up to do in DS1/DS1R/DS2/DSTSotFS. Also, having enough systems to need to hit "show all" is pretty cool.

Greetings! Indeed, it's always a pleasure to meet another fellow Backloggery and I appreciate the multi-tap add in return! I happened to be browsing around some profiles and I was immediately struck by your clever Okami banner. I must confess that I've never beaten in the game despite owning two copies between the original PS2 release at launch and the recent PS4 remaster. Despite that shortcoming, I've always been astonished by its "ink painting" aesthetic and brilliant use of the brush as an interactive mechanic. Anyway, I also referenced your top-rated titles and felt compelled to add you over those aforementioned games! I admittedly never beaten anything from the Zelda, Super Mario or Final Fantasy series so those big names have seriously been lacking in my gaming repertoire. However, I'm preparing to tackle the former through Breath of the Wild since I should be obtaining a Switch for the holiday season!

I'll definitely be seeing you around and best wishes with your future ventures in gaming!

Yeah, settled in and deciding what improvements we want to invest in for this house. Definitely just a first house, not the only house. Also have a wedding in 2020, so trying to minimize extra purchases while we plan for that.

The Witness is good then? It's on my wishlist, but I wasn't sure I wanted to pay $40 on what looked like a puzzle game where you have to connect dots.

Happy New-born by the way. I have two kids myself, but they're not newborns anymore! My bigger problem now is not finding time to play, but finding time to SHARE the games with the kids.

Gaming is currently taking a bit of a back seat on account of the newborn who demands attention at a moment's notice. While I have plenty of games that lend themselves well to handling interruptions, none of the ones I'm currently interested in playing are of that variety.

Entirely unrelated, my Netflix and Plex queues are rapidly shrinking.

Well I've put about 65 hours into BotW so far and it definitely lives up to its name. Since this game seems to be built to encourage doing crazy off the wall things, that's exactly what I've been doing. Normally I like to roleplay the character in video games, which usually means not doing things like throwing rocks at NPCs, setting random things on fire, charging headfirst into much stronger enemies, or refusing to wear clothes just to see what would happen, but I figure Link's got amnesia so what the hell? He also apparently has no sense of self-preservation this time around. Anytime an idea pops in my head that is immediately countered by my video game logic, "don't do that, you'll die" or "don't do that, you'll get stuck," I make a concentrated effort to override that logic and do it anyway.

In short, I'm having a blast, but I'm not taking the story as seriously as I normally would I guess.

Excellent, thank you very much for the information.
