What video game(s) are you playing at the moment?
« on: March 14, 2013, 09:42:37 pm »
Well, apart from Lemmings - which everybody should play regularly, what video games are tickling your pickles at the moment?

I'm quite enjoying the Call of Duty series at the moment - it's a refreshing change from Lemmings, but what are you enjoying?

DROD / DROD:RPG -- an excellent and very complex series of puzzle games. I fell a little bit out of love with a series a while back because there are so many elements, allowing experienced designers to create extremely demanding puzzles, and it has the same problem as any puzzle game, the best designers are always the same ones who can and want to design hard levels, so in spite of the huge number of usermade holds, it's very tricky to find good quality medium-difficulty stuff. However, I recently got back into the series thanks to the prequel, Gunthro and the Epic Blunder, which cuts down the number of elements used and is intended as a gateway to the series (both in difficulty and plot). DROD:RPG is a more mathematical spinoff (it's not actually an RPG) which I prefer to the main DROD series, but sadly there are far fewer usermade holds available for it at the moment.

Sonic (Genesis) games -- Recently I discovered soniccenter.org, a website where you can post your best times and number of rings for individual levels, and that's helped me get back into playing the Sonic games. My times are awful, but I really enjoy the puzzle aspect of finding a route to maximise the number of rings. They also have races every Saturday, rotating through all the numerous Sonic games, and I compete whenever one of the Genesis games comes up, and nearly always come last or second-last 8)

Repton series -- Actually, I haven't been playing these much recently, as Richard (the head honcho of Superior Software) has shown no sign of putting in that extra bit of effort needed to get Extravaganza finally released. I contributed well over a hundred levels for that, so it's hard to feel motivated at the moment. But I do have an ongoing project (five of seven parts done) to post a playthrough of Repton 2: Caverns to my YouTube channel, so I should continue with that whenever I can.

Iji -- I also have a technically ongoing project to post a playthrough of a "perfect game" on Iji, but I haven't touched this for a couple of years.

Final Fantasy IX -- I'm not actually playing this, but right now the guide for the "Excalibur II perfect game" challenge is nearing completion of its absolutely final revision. (One of the toughest "perfect game" challenges in any game, as the Excalibur II can only be got if you reach its location within 12 hours, so you have to fit everything into that time limit.) I contributed to the development of the guide in its early stages, so I'm enjoying watching the final stages and some of the accompanying video runs, which are truly awesome in terms of how they manage to fit doing everything perfectly into the time constraint.

Just a couple of my all-time favourites: Age of Empires 2 and Age of Mythology. I'm still finding new things to do in these games - there are so many ways to set up a map and it randomly generates a new one each time. There's also Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds (essentially Star Wars meets Age of Empires), but it crashes randomly on my PC which makes it essentially unplayable (edit: now fixed!). If/when I get a laptop (which I'll need soon anyway) getting this working will be a high priority :)

Also Lix of course :)

Pretty much nothing. I'm doing what I've basically done for the past few years, doing some Lemmings stuff, and less frequently some Sonic 2 ROM hacking. And even less frequently I try out some indie game. I liked Iji when I played it quite a while ago.

On my immediate to-play list (which means it might have a chance of happening within the next few months) are the game Perspective (made by some students of a game design university, you can get all the games for free there, this in particular here: https://www.digipen.edu/?id=1170&proj=25930), which seems like it's a continuous instead of discrete version of Fez, mechanics-wise. And Anti-chamber, which is about topological spaces or something...

Well, at the moment I have been playing Worms 3D and Sonic Adventure (The PC DX version) on the PC. On both of these games I notice that you can change the sounds by renaming the files (especially the speeches and the music), and I find that so funny, although I might potentially throw caution to the wind, as it's an irreversible process.

I have Xbox360, and I've got plenty of games, but the ones I play are usually the sports or racing games (like FIFA 13, Forza Motorsport 4 and WWE 13). I'm not into shooters or RPGs.

lately the only other game I play is chips challenge. I recently finished my official first custom level pack of 40 levels.  :o [creating levels for CC goes a lot faster than in Lemmings]. So far I haven't gotten much feedback on it though so I haven't messed around with it recently. There's two big custom community packs I haven't played yet.

A while ago I bought Dark Souls for the PC and was highly dissapointed to discover the PC version differs greatly from the other versions and has all kinds of problems. On top of that I found I don't really care for the game period. Every 3D game I play, the controls feel stiff, uncomfortable, or hard to handle, after playing Valve games (which usually are so good you feel like you're really there moving around).

Currently, not a lot. I'm going through older games that I missed out on for various reasons, primarily.

One of those is Fire & Ice: The Daring Adventures of Cool Coyote, for the Commodore Amiga, and that's the main one right now. It's of no relation to "Fire 'n' Ice", the prequel to Solomon's Key. :P

Fire & Ice is a platform game in which you have to freeze and shatter enemies in order to find parts of a key, so that you can progress to the next level (extra lives can be gained by guiding two coyote puppies per level to the exit, also). More info is located here and here, and the legal download from preservation group Back To The Roots, who have permission to redistribute it freely, can be found here, in the "ADF Games" section.

It's already good, challenging, and very well-made, but it's improved greatly by some Amiga emulators allowing you to map up to a button, so that you don't have to tackle the dreaded practice of pressing up in order to jump, which makes it harder than it should be. :P

Hi guys

There is a really good puzzle game I used to play which was called Fitznik, made by the New Zealand company screaming duck software, what a game, I managed to finish all the levels but it does make your brain explode with the puzzles. 

http://www.screamingduck.com/

If you get a chance download the demo, I'm sure any lemmings fan will love fitznik

My dads mate and I have been trying to get Fire and Ice to work on the atari st, I think this was the game I used to play as a kid because I remember playing this underwater type game which I suppose was the demo version of the game but I could be wrong as my memory is foggy in this area.

I'm playing Baldur's Gate at the moment. I love occidental RPGs and had never played this classic. Luckily, the Steam Summer Sale showed up and I jumped at the chance. I have to say I'm having a great time even though it's not an easy game to tackle nowadays. The adventure is great and I LOVE the humourous tone of it : crazy characters and many cultural references make it very enjoyable.

I'm not playing Lemmings now, because I worked a lot on my pack and I need to take a break. Just a little one... :)

I got Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds to work! Turns out this old game can't handle the newfangled graphics acceleration stuff - turn it off and you're good!

It's not as fun as I remember though. Oh well. Still good for nostalgia value once in a while :)

hey Pieuw, what's your name on Steam? mine is donut munching moron  :D

there are a lot of good new games out recently

I suddenly got hooked on Marble Drop again. It's a very addictive game, I mentioned it once before:
note: turn down volume, this person has it really loud for some reason
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THnTivcweF4

very challenging but fun puzzles. Simon, you would like this game as there is no time limit. There are five bonus levels which can only be accessed via a special extral puzzle built into the levels before them.
I really wish a level editor could be made for this game and a community with it too. That would be so sweeeeeet!

Then there's this amazing game which I already talked about a ton; but seriously deserves that much mention:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F73rWC_3oSc

It really is an amazing, amazing game, definitely worth the measly $20. As Nerd3 says the less you know about it before playing the better.

Then there's also this also amazing game which I just began playing:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1S796fXtl4
It's very funny and I expect it be frustrating (in a good way).

as Pieuw said, after working on this big pack, I need a break from Lemmings for a little while

I just added you :)

I am now playing Rayman Origins, and I think it's awesome even though it can be really frustrating sometimes. I'm near the end I guess.
I also started to play Revenge of the Lemmings... ta-dah-dah-dah ! :thumbsup:

that game perspective looks awesome. I'll be playing that while I wait for a game I ordered through MAIL on EBAY  :o  :o called RHEM. It's old adventure/puzzle game similar to Myst, which is one of my favorites so pretty sure I'll love it.

I was playing Portal today, trying for the transmission received achievement and encountered a possible glitch. Somehow I broke a door.

In chamber 14, I was carrying a cube over to the button. I don't remember exactly how it happened but I jumped on the button and jumped off and the cube got thrown, then there was an explosion sound out of nowhere and the door stayed open even though nothing was on the button. The button stayed in the up position even when I stepped on it or put things on it and the door was permanently open.

What I'm guessing is that I somehow triggered a fail safe program to prevent some actual glitch from happening. After the explosion the block ended up near the door so perhaps the block went into the door before it closed; thus jamming it; and for some reason they decided to have it "break" the door in this way. in any case it felt very satisfying  :D

I am kind of in a varied state of gaming at this point. I have been wanting to play my xbox 360 lately, but I only have a few family members on my xbl friends list, and so it makes its a little hard to go at any games alone, especially during the day. I much prefer co-op games with friends. Roughly got 15-20 games on it since getting it a few months ago.

As for the PC, it is mainly World of Warcraft, but on occasion I might do something else, like Everquest 2. Up until recently I have been focusing on one or two games overall. Still not sure what to do though :P

I'm currently playing through Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion for the Nintendo 3DS.

It's not quite up to the standards of the games that it so badly wants to be like, such as Castle of Illusion, and Mickey Mania (it's not due to its quality - it's due to having to throw in loads of dialogue and fetch-quests so that modern publishers won't whine about not being able to put an "X Number-of-hours of Gameplay!" bullet-point on the packaging), but it is very good. Really enjoying it.

I will say that the downloadable demo does not reflect how good the game actually is - it actually put me off, initially.

RHEM. It's old adventure/puzzle game similar to Myst, which is one of my favorites so pretty sure I'll love it.

This is what I've been doing when I should've been making my contest level.  :P
If your a Myst fan or a puzzle fan you'll love this series. Also it's purely puzzle and very little storyline which I sort of enjoy. btw, I did figure out that puzzle I posted in chat, it turned out I was just missing something obvious. So far only once in the game was there a really obtrusive sort of-- way-out-there thing that I had to look up the solution for.

Been playing Wonderland Adventures: Planet of the Z-Bots over the past week or so.  It's the 3rd game in the Wonderland Adventures series (and 6th or 7th if you count all the Wonderland games), was finally released this October after over 4 years since the previous game.  The main developer of the Wonderland games pitched the original game way back in Chip's Challenge community which is how I learned about them.  They are singleplayer puzzle games with a tiny bit of action, storyline and NPCs mixed in, has its roots inspired by Chip's Challenge and evolved from there.

I've been a Myst fan in the past as well, so sounds like RHEM will be something on my list of games to check out.

that looks pretty interesting. thanks for the recommendation.
Now I have that + Perspective on my big 'things that never-get-done' list  :D

I've just begun RHEM 2, and it's a step up in graphics and sound. Also I've been told the puzzles are harder and more interesting.

still not in a very Lemmings mood  :-\

that looks pretty interesting. thanks for the recommendation.

I should mention that although the latest game out that I was playing (Planet of the ZBots) doesn't have a free demo version yet, the older games in the Wonderland series should all have free demo versions I think, which you can download from the midnightsynergy website on the page that features the particular game.  Granted, the demos only feature the levels at the beginning so it might seem easier than the full game.  Still, it lets you get a general feel of the games.

And the game engine's like almost 10 years old at this point, so set your expectations accordingly when it comes to graphics (although to be fair, it's decent enough for a puzzle game).

==============

RHEM does look very Myst-like and intriguing, however it looks like it only ships as a CD rather than an electronic download.  Aside from having to wait for shipping (undoubtedly prone to delays at this time of year), some of my newer laptops don't have CDROM drives so it's a bit limiting.  Anyway, I may still give in on this one day, but for now I think I'll probably look through the rest of this thread for other things to try out first.

===============

This is apparently old news already, but Chuck Somerville who created the original Chip's Challenge has finally created a successor to that game via KickStarter funding.  The result is Chuck's Challenge 3D which you can check out here.

if you're really into chips challenge check out: http://cczone.invisionzone.com/
there's a custom level community for this game as well. With a staggering amount of levels. All of which are not there but in other places like yahoo groups. I don't like using those personally. But there are a good amount of levelsets at this site.

Chuck's challenge looks really cool btw.

I'm into Portal 2 these days. Not the main game which I already finished lots of times, but the Workshop puzzles. And I was wondering if anyone here had this game? As it's possible to create custom test chambers, I thought it would be fun to share our creations. But if I'm alone, then I'll just share mine with myself :D

I remember Spelunky from the XBLA. It's a great game. My favourite zone is the Ice Zone. There are two things I don't like however: The death count, and some blind levels which are very annoyingly difficult (Mainly because there are traps you can't see).

besides making my big levelpack, I've been playing through RHEM 4, which is proving to be the hardest so far. What amazes me a little about the series as how unique he's been able to make each game. So far none of the puzzle concepts have really been repeated or over used. Only in RHEM3 was there a tad bit of predictability with some of the "secrets".

I've also been playing Crystalis for NES.

I've been playing a lot of old racing games such as the brilliant off road game that is 1nsane and other games such as POD (planet of death). Going back to the off road racing games there does not tend to be that many off road racing games out now. Anyone else on the forum that has played 1nsane very good game indeed even though it is coming up for it's 13th Birthday, that's old now ain't it.  :D

I've also been looking through a list of old dos games to see if there is anything that looks good to give a try,

BTW RHEM looks like a nice game I never heard of that one before,  :thumbsup:

Back on the first page (just over a year ago) I mentioned the DROD series. The fifth game, The Second Sky, came out just over a week ago. I have a small voice-acting role (narrator for the intro texts for some levels), and I designed two rooms that got used.

Although this game drastically increases the number of game elements, which was my main complaint about the series earlier, there are user-made low-difficulty holds that let you practise with each type of monster and learn how to manipulate them -- I particularly recommend Dan's Dungeon. There isn't yet an equivalent including the new 5.0 elements, but I'm working on building one myself.

The Second Sky is also the grand climax of the storyline continuing through the official DROD holds, and it's carried out to perfection, not to mention the awesome new graphics and music. Sorry if I sound like I'm advertising, but honestly, I think this is an amazing game and anyone here would love it. Did I mention that it includes a tribute level to Lemmings?

I'm currently stuck into Tearaway Thomas for the Commodore Amiga, which is a high-speed, very twitch-focussed platform/collect-'em-up with some harsh time limits to keep you on your toes.

There's a video of it here, which makes it look a bit choppy, but in real life it's perfectly smooth.

It's great fun, and is actually more in line with the older arcade games like Bubble Bobble, Bomb Jack, and Rod Land, than its appearance seems to make people think! And the soundtrack's fab.

It also has mildly terrifying box-art. It's not actually bad in any way - I think it just slightly unsettles me due to the game's cute animal protagonist being rendered more like a man in a weird superhero costume, instead (it's very much in the style of the box for the C64 version of Bomb Jack, in fact). :P



This one's an underrated, little-known gem, methinks. :thumbsup:

I'm currently stuck into Tearaway Thomas for the Commodore Amiga, which is a high-speed, very twitch-focussed platform/collect-'em-up with some harsh time limits to keep you on your toes.

I'm currently p[laying a game Simon recommended called Enigma. It's a remake of Oxyd a game on the Atari ST.
Very fun and addicting.

I'm currently replaying Baldur's Gate II, playing Mass Effect 2 (and occasionally wanting to smash my fist through the screen because of certain aspects of it), and have a game of Rome II: Total War that's been on hold for a while. I'm also replaying Lemmings II: The Tribes, and have got koules to work on my Windows machine, so I'm playing that every now and again as well.

Back on the first page (just over a year ago) I mentioned the DROD series. The fifth game, The Second Sky, came out just over a week ago. I have a small voice-acting role (narrator for the intro texts for some levels), and I designed two rooms that got used.

Although this game drastically increases the number of game elements, which was my main complaint about the series earlier, there are user-made low-difficulty holds that let you practise with each type of monster and learn how to manipulate them -- I particularly recommend Dan's Dungeon. There isn't yet an equivalent including the new 5.0 elements, but I'm working on building one myself.

The Second Sky is also the grand climax of the storyline continuing through the official DROD holds, and it's carried out to perfection, not to mention the awesome new graphics and music. Sorry if I sound like I'm advertising, but honestly, I think this is an amazing game and anyone here would love it. Did I mention that it includes a tribute level to Lemmings?

I recall I began playing the first DROD game shortly before a computer crash some time back, but never got very far. Perhaps I'll give the series another look.

That's so true I loved the old video game music it does take you back in time, The atari st games I thought that had good music well it's probably going to be a big list but I will try and pick the best ones.

I'm playing Assassin's Creed 2 and I'm pretty impressed! The first one was an OK game, with a great concept but sooooo repetitive. This second installment throws away almost every flaws and adds some great new content. It takes place in Italy, mostly in two cities I visited years ago (Florence and Venice) and it's quite awesome to climb on buildings, take a look around and think "I was there!" :D

I'm also playing Heroes of Might & Magic III, one of my all-time favorite games.

I remember playing the old Tony Hawks games I managed to complete the second and third ones, they were interesting games. We've got a charity shop just down the road which is selling old PS2 games but have not had the chance to look at any yet. (I don't have a PS2 myself)

Lemmings related I’ve played this year: Epic Adventure, MobiLems, Lix Community Level Set, Lemmings Plus III

Aaand other games I've played this year in chronological order:

FIRE FIGHT          [gameplay video]

This flight shooter game I remember from my childhood and I had searched for it for ages, and it was last spring when I finally found it by using Google image search. :P I was really happy to find it and I played it through for nostalgic reasons, but the game wasn’t as good as I remembered.


VVVVVV          [trailer]

I found out about this game through its music on September 2013 or so, and I fell in love with the soundtrack. Later on I became familiar what’s the game like and I played its demo, which can be found by some googling and I highly recommend playing the demo if you’re not familiar with the game. VVVVVV is the game that made me to create my GOG account and it’s the first game for years I’ve paid for. I played it through during my Easter semester 2014 and I absolutely loved this retro feeling puzzle platformer despite the short length of the game. The game itself is brilliant, but it ultimately arose to my alltime favourites because of the soundtrack composed by Magnus “SoulEye” Pålsson, and I recently during this year decided to consider one of the tunes, Potential for Anything, to be the very best chiptune I’ve ever heard.


RAYMAN FOREVER          [trailer]

Rayman was my favourites in my childhood even though I only played the sequel, Rayman 2, back then. I was really happy to get this game from GOG and finally play it myself through. Platformers have always been really close to my heart, and Rayman is definitely among the best ones. What surprised me is that Rayman was pretty tricky, one of the hardest 2D platformers I’ve played. It took a surprisingly lot of time from me to finish this awesome game. :)


RAYMAN 2: THE GREAT ESCAPE          [trailer]

Rayman 2 is still one of my favourite games and probably my favourite 3D platformer, and I remember that I never beated the boss of the game as a child, whereas both my siblings did. I corrected this flaw right when my summer vacation started. :) By today’s standards, Rayman 2 didn’t look that beautiful as 15 years ago, but I’ve always loved the unique world in Rayman franchise. The prequel was a lot harder than this!


SUPER MEAT BOY          [trailer]

Super Meat Boy is another game that I found out by its soundtrack. In fact, a forum member Pieuw linked me some Super Meat Boy music 1,5 years ago, and it was September 2013 when I found the music again, and I was enchanted. Again, I played the demo on the internet (which isn’t nearly as good as the demo of VVVVVV), and it was last June when I finally ended up getting this game. Super Meat Boy is the reason why I made a Steam account, and I purchased my copy from the summer sales. :) I had ridiculously high expectations for this game… and then it just topped all of my expectations. This platformer become already one of my favourite video games, and I loved the challenges it offered. I just enjoyed the game ridiculously much and the difficulty curve was super good to get me hooked all the time. I played the whole game in the beginning of June. Right now I am a fan of the composer Danny Baranowsky, who made awesome work with the whole soundtrack, Dr. Fetus’ Castle is just one example of masterpiece tunes in this game.


AVISH, STONE AGE, PUSHOVER
[Avish gameplay video]
[Stone Age gameplay video]
[Pushover gameplay video]

I found out about these puzzle games from the forums, geoo and Simon both recommended them.
I downloaded all of them from Abandonia and played half of Avish, 97 levels out of 100 in Stone Age before getting stuck, and 1/5 from the beginning of Pushover. My favourite definitely was Stone Age that captivated me, also I like the music in this game (yet again :P). Not sure when I’ll get excited about these games again.


CORPSE PARTY SERIES          [Corpse Party: Blood Covered …Repeated Fear opening]

This is a franchise that I haven’t played myself because it’s for PSP or Vita, but I found out about it when the most subscribed Youtuber played it through. I’m glad that I followed the series, it became exciting pretty quickly and the endings of the chapters of course hooked me irrevocably. Corpse Party is a horror series, that is strongly story based, and the gameplay elements are somewhat scarce, especially in other games than the RPG game “Corpse Party: Blood Covered …Repeated Fear”, which is the best and the main game in the series in my opinion. I was really obsessed with this series for like whole June-July, watching gameplay videos from every game, watching the 4-episode-anime and reading the manga (I had never before read any manga), wanting to see what’s going to happen in the storyline in all those. Corpse Party series generally increased my interest in anime, manga, even Japanese language etc. The latest installment of the series, "Corpse Party: Blood Drive", came out July 24th in Japan, and I of course didn’t want to wait for like over a year to get the game translated to English, I watched its playthrough in a live stream to get to know immediately what’s the climax of the story.

Corpse Party is a somewhat grisly and gory, heart-breaking series, and Eastern horror tends usually not to have happy endings unfortunately. The series constructs emotional bonds between the player and the characters through detailed background informations. (The anime is different in this way, because it lasts for only 4 episodes and is rushed together, you can't become attached to the characters, and it focuses a lot more in gore than games or manga. :P) I wept like a baby in many points throughout the whole series and different installments in it, and that hasn’t been too usual for me… O_o The voice acting is remarkably top-notch, and yet again I love the music, that is really fitting and identifiable for the series.


Now I have next on my to-play-list Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc and Rayman Origins, that came with the Rayman bundle from GOG. :) I also have Fez and Braid, that were suggested to me, but I have no such bonds to those games beforehand as for the other games I’ve played this year.

Oh I remember looking at that game Stone age, I never quite understood what was to be done but now looking at the you tube video it explains it well, looks a good little puzzle game.

I decided to have a go at Chips challenge which is something I have never played before, I'm at level 59 now after being slightly addicted to playing the game, I can see how you guys think highly of chips challenge.  :thumbsup: It sure is a tough one but the thing about the game that makes it good is the levels test you out on many areas, i'e puzzle solving, dodging enemies, quick reactions and many more skills such as route finding.

As Akseli was mentioning about pushover it is a brilliant game in my opinion, I think it must of been three or four years ago my brother and I started playing through pushover again but we were taking shots each at completing the levels. (I think I won that)  :)  A long time ago I couldn't get by the aztec levels but now I can get quite far into the game, still don't think I've completed that game yet.

Another game that I have not heard get mentioned before is a little puzzle game for the Atari st called (Color Clash)

http://www.mobygames.com/game/atari-st/color-clash/screenshots/gameShotId,319471/

The object of color clash is to collect all the insects around the level, sounds very easy but it's not you have to think about what moves you are going to make, also there can be some bad guys around so watch out.

I think the only way you can get this game working is by using the atari st emulator, I use (Steam st).

I managed to complete color clash about four or five years ago, if I remember correctly.  :thumbsup:

Thanks everyone for sharing your memories.

I've been playing some Unreal Tournament 2004 again. I missed that game. Not so many people in multiplayer as there used to be, but hey, it's still good fun!

I'm also still playing the ones I mentioned last time, except that I finished up Baldur's Gate II and have gone back to Baldur's Gate again, because I'm mildly obsessive like that at times. I also got koules running on my computer, so I've been playing that every now and again.

I've been playing Bunny Mania 2 HD, lately (again, thanks to ccexplore for the heads-up on this). It does a lot of things much better than the ultimately-disappointing Lemmings Touch did.

in case you weren't aware; in the past we played a version of mafia right here on the forum. Next time we do you should join  :)
Both games, the mafia got incredibly unlucky despite playing well.

I've just recently replayed the two Abe games in the Oddworld series, in anticipation of the Abe's Oddysee remake (Oddword: New n Tasty) finally coming out on platforms that I own within the next few weeks; first PC near the end of this month, then PS3 early next month (hopefully). I'll probably wait for the PS3 version, though might just go for PC if it ends up taking too long.

I'm working my way through Touhou 10: Mountain of Faith on Normal difficulty; so far reached the penultimate boss, Sanae.

I've been a fan of the Touhou games for a while, after discovering them through the roundabout route of reading a very silly webcomic nominally based on Iji but crossing over with all manner of things, then getting into watching playthroughs on YouTube. but I've just this week finally gotten round to obtaining a copy and trying to play one of the games myself. It's very satisfying to discover that I can actually do it  :P

My favourite (and the only one I've beaten) was Touhou 6: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. I also really like Touhou 11: Subterranean animism. It has the best soundtrack of all of them, I think. (Particularly that song onward.)

on May 28 I'm going to be playing Chips Challenge 2. Which is the best game ever! [not really, don't even know what it's like yet]. I'm going to have so much fun. [May end up getting very frustrated with it]. However, looking at the photos/teasers and info I think [hope] it will be an improvement on the first game.
Besides an almost incredible number of new game elements [some of which are really super awesome like pick-up-able teleporters (basically the idea behind Portal, 10 years before it)] there are some noticeable improvements on gameplay: there is a counter for how many keys you collect. Also a save system instead of codes.
Also a total of 200 levels :lem-mindblown: :thumbsup:

Hm, I'd honestly prefer codes above a save system in games with levels that you do in order, like Lemmings.

MouseCraft.

Really good game actually...

The first few levels were a bit too "talky" narration-wise to explain what was pretty obvious, and there was a bit too much hand-holding for my liking. But once you get past that, it's really quite enjoyable. :)

Ah yes! I remember Mousecraft very well. I even mentioned an article on that just in case if you're interested. It's over here.

So, I've been playing Final Fantasy X again lately (one of my favorite games of all time). I'm doing the insanely-ridiculous NSGNSNCNONENNENBB challenge. I've previously done it minus the NENNENBB part, and I'm currently up to where I got to on that eventually-abandoned attempt; just after Macalania Temple. Have to repeatedly try fighting Wendigo until it drops an SOS Haste armor for Rikku; although the challenge is possible without one at this point (and one can be obtained much easier later), I think I'd rather farm Wendigo for one now than go without one until much closer to the end of the game.

I've also been a bit stricter on the No "No Encounters" part of the challenge than most players usually are. Generally, it's taken to just refer to literally having an armor (or weapon) with the No Encounters auto-ability, but I've also interpreted it as not doing anything else that actively prevents random encounters, such as activating the butterfly minigame in Macalania Woods, or riding a chocobo (unless it's for the explicit purpose of getting to somewhere you can't reach without riding one).

I've done some fairly insane challenge runs before, but this one is really in a league of its own... wow.

CC2 was very entertaining and on a whole I was happy with it. For some reason I totally lost interest in it for a while. Now I've started playing Dark Souls PC edition, which is great fun. It's a game that seems overly difficult at first but a large part of that is because the game is so complex. And in the beginning there are multiple paths to take, some harder than others, and there's no clear indication which path to take. I believe it doesn't matter anyway.

Undertale.

It's technically an RPG, but there's very little grinding (unless you want to) and battles play more like a avoidance game/shoot 'em up than an actual turn based RPG. The major selling point of this game is that you can defeat enemies without killing them (but you can kill them if you want), so the menu parts of a fight if you go that route are more puzzle-like than RPG-like.

The story is also pretty amazing, there's some great characterization and the writing is charming and pretty funny at times. There's also a small mechanic in the game that can be a bit of a mindscrew but YOU CAN PET MULTIPLE DOGS THAT'S COOL RIGHT

But yea. Very highly recommended, even if RPGs aren't really your thing.

Sounds interesting!

I've been playing a lot of Pillars of Eternity lately, after having to avoid starting in on the game for months after I got it due to being too busy. It's been very good, so far, so I'm happy about that. It's basically a new game in the style of the old Infinity Engine RPGs made by Black Isle, although there are certainly differences. Definitely not recommended if you don't like RPGs, but if you do (and especially classic RPGs), so far I'd recommend it quite highly. I've not finished it yet, but it's been a long time since I've had this much fun with a new game.

I bought a Wii U with Super Mario Maker last week. Me and my brother played Mario Maker for over 22 hours already :o It's a great game. It has quite a few flaws, but for what it is, it's incredibly well done.
It's really fun to create levels. If only more people would play them... :3 (nobody has beaten any of my levels yet, I made them very challenging :P)

More of a "what games HAVE I played recently" thing:

https://coinplay.io/bundle/weekend-4

5 games for a literal dollar. Two of these (Nihilumbra and Back to Bed) are games I've heard are quite good, so much that I've purchased both, independently, for about 3 bundles worth of money, on sale.

One of the others is the game I literally have the most playtime of all the game I have on Steam for. It's a pretty great game, about permuting. I'll buy this package for literally anyone on this board who wants it. If only for Great Permutator. Oh and I GUESS those other 4 games, 2 of which I think are probably also reallllly good.

"Spoiler Alert" (no really, that's the game's title)

Ran into this recently on Amazon Appstore (but apparently had been available for a while on various platforms, though only free on Amazon currently).

A bit on the easy, short side but cool concept--tagline: "the platformer you play in reverse" (even if ultimately, it's not actually that different from regular gameplay):

http://www.amazon.com/tinyBuild-Spoiler-Alert/dp/B0170PHO9W/ [free but requires installing Amazon Underground app for Android]
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/spoiler-alert/id575634541?mt=8  [$0.99 USD]
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tinybuild.spoileralert [$0.99 USD]
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/spoiler-alert/9wzdncrdh5kw [$0.99 USD, requires Windows 8 or 10]

==========================

"Monument Valley"

As for this puzzle game, it has been around for a while; I tried and finished it sometime last year when it was available one day as "free app of the day" on Amazon Appstore.  More recently, it now appears there is a regularly-free version on the "Underground apps" section of Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015OQVN8C/ [free but requires installing Amazon Underground app for Android]
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/monument-valley/id728293409?mt=8  [$3.99 USD]
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ustwo.monumentvalley [$1.99 USD]

Not too hard but certainly more cerebral than "Spoiler Alert", this is another cool concept: how to get around in a world of Escherian geometry.  (They didn't do a good job highlighting that aspect though in the stores' descriptions, screenshots and not even that video on Google Play's.)  Example: rotate your view of the 3D world into a certain angle, and two pieces of platform that doesn't actually connect together in 3D space will look connected in that particular point of view, and this allows you to walk from one platform to the other in the game.

If I have time I might check and see if this currently free Amazon Underground version has the extra chapter of levels available for free as well.

I've also been playing a Steam game called "Lost Marbles" which basically takes the concept of Marble Madness except this game is good.  [I hate Marble Madness]
So far all the levels have been fair and fun and challenging.

Hi Mobius

Just checked that game out the (lost Marbles) sounds not a bad game. :) Yeah that marble madness game was very frustrating as well as a bit on the short sile. It was always very tricky to keep control of the marble without falling off the ledge into the darkness that waits below.

Have you tried Marble blast Mobius? It was a very fun game, one of my favourite marble games of all time. :)

No I haven't, I'll have to look into that one. Since we're talking about Marble games (which I just realized I have an affinity for) You might like a game called Marble Drop
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marble_Drop
Idk why the game got poor reviews I found few flaws in it and it was lots of fun, and hard.

Actually that might be a good game (Marble drop) Need to give that a try.  In the game do you have to get the coloured marbles into the correct colours so to say. I checked this you tube of the game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUE399XSoqE

Yeah that actually looks like a game I would enjoy. There is some games I like that have gotten bad reviews, like one of the games I can think of is (Crash day) a racing game that was actually quite fun.

Did you manage to complete Marble drop? What about Marble Madness, sorry I had to ask. I just completed that game recently myself for the first time. :)

After taking a break due to being really busy and replaying Icewind Dale II during that, I've finally started playing Pillars of Eternity again -- I've still not finished it. Also playing GTR2 from time to time, and I ventured back into Unreal Tournament 2004 for the first time since I got a mouse (as opposed to a trackball). That didn't go as badly as I feared, but clearly I still need a bit more practice with the mouse to get to where I was!

I've recently started playing Re-Volt online, I never did that before as I never set it up properly until a few weeks ago.
At first, I got last every time, but the third day I played I got some better places.
It's definitely fun to play online, although I usually like the diversity of cars, which isn't there when racing online as almost everyone uses Toyeca, the best car.
And sometime it lags a little when interacting with other cars, but that's probably always going to be an issue with online multi-player gaming.

I've been playing Dark Souls; an action/RPG game with a lot of focus on exploration. It's really a beautiful game, in some areas the graphics look very realistic. It has a very good and immersive atmosphere.

I bought the game a while ago and didn’t like it at first because of controller issues I wasn’t used to and it seemed too difficult (as it’s so noted for). But I picked it up again recently and found it’s really not as overly difficult than most other games I’ve played like this. I think one thing that sets it apart is that the game doesn’t hold your hand in the beginning like many others do [cough Zelda cough] so a lot of things you must figure out yourself, which I kind of like in a game. I’d rather discover something on my own with the satisfaction of figuring something out then reading a lot of text etc.
I think It’s the kind of game where if something seems too overly difficult; you’re probably going about it the wrong way; and there’s an easier way of doing it. Or you're just in the wrong area. The path through the game is very non-linear and there are many ways to go from the beginning, most are way too hard for you at the beginning however.

That being said, the game definitely is not easy, and there are some things I don't like about it, but the good points keep me playing anyway. It’s pretty complex; there’s a lot of things to think about. It’s not a game like Half-Life where running through it at mach speed is the best approach. I like how it forces you to take your time. You have to study every new enemy you encounter to learn it’s patterns and the best way to fight it. I also love how story line is woven through item descriptions that you can read at your leisure and within dialogue with characters instead of long drawn out cut scenes like so many other popular games do.

I'm toying with the idea of getting into Super Mario Bro. X . IF you don't know, it's a free fan made game which combines Mario 1,2,3 and some Zelda stuff and has a level editor.
Not sure I really feel like making levels/a game if nobody would play it though.

I don't mind giving this game a go; as long as it's a game with a level editor that comes for free. like Neolemmix, only that it's a platformer instead of a Lemmings game.

On my 3DS, I've been playing Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros. Some of the music in that game has found its way into my SEB Lems pack ;P

On my PS Vita, I've been playing thee rhythm game Project Diva X.
Incredible entry in the Hatsune Miku Project Diva series, then again all 3 PS Vita entries are pretty strong games.
One advantage playing this game on the Vita over PS3/PS4 is the calibration issues are virtually non existant which makes the game so much better.
Again Hatsune Mike music will feature in the SEB Lems pack :thumbsup:

I may pick up the PS4 version at some point but the PS Vita version was £24.99 as opposed to PS4 being £36.99.

I've found that rhythm games, for me, sync a lot better on CRT televisions than flatscreens - if you can find one at a thrift shop maybe that will deal with any calibration issues rhythm games tend to have on newer TVs? Then again you would also need an HDMI to AV converter which might itself create lag?

@Insane Steve: You are right with CRT TVs being the best choice for Rhythm games, luckily I was playing Guitar Hero way back in 2006 on a CRT TV and calibration lag was not a thing back then.
Yeah the main issue is games consoles have solely moved onto HDMI except for handhelds which have their own screen contained within itself so lag is non existant hence why Project DIVA games are best on handhelds. If you can calibrate it correctly on consoles using the calibration options then it's worthwhile to have on consoles.

I play games like Rock Band 4 on my Xbox One as well at the moment and that game has horrendous calibration lag, not to mention the fact that everytime a game title update occurs for me at least, it messes up the calibration settings :XD:
With that being said, I still highly recommend Rock Band 4, if you ever invested in the DLC for RB1-RB3 on the previous gen, the developers worked hard to make sure the DLC came over with you (free of charge) to the next gen in Rock Band 4 and I think that is a first for any game in any genre! It did take them a while to do it and there were a lot of teething issues but they did it when they didn't have to.
Of course it goes without saying that if you invested in Xbox 360, you have to buy the Xbox One version of Rock Band 4 and same with PS3/PS4 etc.

Wait, does the PS4 need a converter for AV? That seems a bit odd, as HDMI isn't very good for gaming, usually.

Now that I have more free time, I've started playing Splatoon again. Such a fun game. I'm still only level 30 though...

And man, are ranked battles brutal.

Used to play that game way back when it was released last year, it was great when it was released but there are way too many weapons in the game now. It's good if you find something that works but I felt that as more weapon types with different power ups came out, it was harder and harder to counter them because there was more and more!
Don't tell me solutions to levels which I have not solved.

So I never got into Super Mario Bro. X.
Now I'm playing a randomized/nuzlocke challenge of Pokemon Fire Red, which has been quite fun. Randomized means all the pokemon from gens 1,2&3 are available and planning ahead is much harder. I started out with Eletrike, but he died near Mount Moon. I lost five pokemon so far actually, but I currently have;
Ricky Bobby the Azumaril
Camool the Numel (inside joke name)
Abraham Lincoln the Lombre
Vincent Price the Shuppet
"Red" the Dragonair (which I got from a in game trade so can't change the nickname)
I also recently got a Houndor, but it died only shortly after I caught it :'( but I also just caught "Carlos Danger" the Slackoth which is pretty awesome, as since abilities are randomized, he doesn't have Truant.

This has been quite fun and I'm very sad that I couldn't stream any of this. If I can stream any time soon I plan to stream this or a run like this.

I do recall that FireRed and LeafGreen wouldn't allow Gen 2 and Gen 3 Pokemon to evolve until you get the National Dex (my best guess is maybe as an anti-cheat, but it can be observed without cheating by attempting to make a Golbat evolve into a Crobat). Does the randomizer fix that?

I'm guessing it does; because it fixes other things; there's an option to disable bad abilities like Truant and Wonderguard. It also can make trading--evolving pokemon evolve by level like Haunter evolves at level 40 or something like that. Feebas will evolve at level 35.

Speaking of Feebas, I just caught one! in the pool in Celadon, which I hadn't even thought of until I saw it, realizing there's an encounter there. This makes up for missing it in Viridian Forest and Houndoor and Nuzleaf dying. I also got a Magby from the game corner. To retain the rule I'll only allow myself to get that one prize from the game corner (I don't feel like playing the slot mahcine for anymore anyway)
and makes up for the other static poke in Celadon (what's normally evee in the mainsion) being another bellsprout :laugh:

I'm pretty close to finishing up Pokemon Prism and cataloging its secrets and other goodies. Just a few more hidden items to flush out, the Battle Tower to explore, and the Pokedex to complete (which will require use of cheat codes because the game wasn't completed and I can't make trading work on my emulator but I want to see what that one NPC gives you if you actually do it).

As I'm currently unable to play NeoLemmix for the time being, I've been playing Hatsune Miku Future Tone on my PS4, it only came out a few weeks ago and it has a massive 224 songs if you buy both packs for it.
Hub game is free but you have to pay to add songs to it.
It contains a lot of the songs from the Project DIVA series and Project Mirai series.
The game itself is actually a port of an arcade cabinet found in Japan so needless to say it is highly challenging!

Also playing through Genesis Lemmings as well, scratches my Lemmings itch for me right now.

I heard of that but never looked into it. I will have to check that out.

I've been playing RHEM IV 'special edition' the creator updated the game added a whole new area and some new puzzles. He's also working on RHEM V which is going to some how feature you revisiting RHEMS 1,2 and 3, which is pretty cool I gotta say. Even though these games are sort of lo-budget, I don't believe this concept has been done before, to my knowledge, in this way at least.

Welcome to the forum nin10doadict

That RHEM game looks like a cool game, I need to try that one sometime. I've been playing the tomb raider games recently replaying some of the ones I've completed a long time ago. I managed to complete the angel of darkness tomb raider one that I never completed when I played it over a decade ago. If you havn't tried the tomb games I would reccommend them as they do have some very tricky puzzles in them.

Looking back at the Rhem game, I was looking at screenshots of that game and it does look like it would be something I could try one time.

is this game very open ended? Are there a lot of cutscenes? How are the physics and the difficulty?

I got a Nintendo Switch in the last 5 days, practically got the console for free through collecting tickets (if you could call that getting it for free).
Got the tickets through playing a Sonic Basketball game over and over getting around 150 tickets a time.
The Nintendo Switch cost me 41000 tickets.

Anyway I've been playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 as my first purchases. I also repurchased Sonic Mania for Switch mainly for the handheld mode :P.
Enjoying both MK8 and Splatoon, they are very much the same as the Wii U games with slight improvements. Seem to stay connected to matches more in Splatoon as well. MK8 seems to be plagued with connection issues for me :(.

Also I'm interested to know if anyone else on the forum owns this console other than GigaLem, I wouldn't be surprised if a few more people had them under their trees this year :P

Farming tickets to get a good prize eh? I've always known there must be people that do that...
Anyway, though I'd like to get a Switch I don't celebrate Christmas so I'll have to save up for one myself. Recent annual tooth cleaning for the cats drained most of my funds. Until then I'm still chipping away at Hyrule Warriors DLC, playing through the Pokemon Ranger games again, fixing Lemmings Squared (almost done with that, actually), and considering remaking my Blockdude engine in Game Maker to make it generally better.

Yeah, we only got into it recently but I think we might cool it down a bit now, there isn't really any other great big prizes to save up for.

We chose the Nintendo Switch over a PS4 Pro and we haven't looked back, it's a great console.
All it needs is some other great games to back it up because the games released so far are looking great!

I bought Nintendo Switch on day one, and have good amount of games for it too. I suggest you check out Arms, especially now that it has released it's final content update. It gets boring quite fast if you are playing solo though, so I suggest you try it out with some friends. ;)

I have two relatively new games occupying my gaming time for the last few months.
First game is West of Loathing.  A short description is the game is a comedy western rpg.  An insta-buy for me since I am a long time player of the online rpg Kingdom of Loathing.
The other game is Opus Magnum.  This one is a puzzle game with an alchemy theme to it.  The best new puzzle game this year in my opinion.

I bought a few games from steam and I managed to complete the (Marble Skies) game which is quite difficult at times, some of those last levels can be a nightmare. Another game I got was this game called polyball, from what I have played so far this is one top game. The object of the game is to get a fast time and the quicker time you get the better medal you get.

Games I've been playing lately, I've tried Cueclub 2 which is a snooker and pool game which is really fun, been playing some chuck's challenge which was another I bought from steam. Rocket league is another one I've been playing, this is quite a hard game, I usually go in goals to try and stop anyone from scoring.

A few oldies I've been playing was Jazz Jackrabbit, trying it on the turbo mode which is quite tricky. Another game I gave a try was the crystal caves one which is an interesting little game. You have to collect all the gems on each level before you can escape.

That looks interesting! I don't think I've got that game, though...


I've recently been doing another playthrough of Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga. It's my fifth almost complete playthrough, but I've only finished 2 so far, as I used to have a bootleg cartridge that would randomly lose its saves. When it stopped saving for real I stopped playing the game, and a couple of years ago I bought a genuine cartridge. I played through it once then, but it turned out to be really easy, now that I knew what to do.
Because of that, for this fifth playthrough I have decided to not grind for levels. If I revisit an area I've been before, I'll actively avoid enemies, while in my previous playthroughs I'd encounter all of them for some easy xp. I'm also not buying more coffee than necessary to get E. Gadd's inventions, and so far I have not bought anything from the item shops. I hope I can keep that up, and I think I can. I've begun to run low on Mushrooms and 1-Up Mushrooms, but I've got to Little Fungitown and bought the pair of jeans that makes you get mushrooms from battles, so that should be fine at least.

And the story and presentation is even more fun than last time. :) Every time I play through the game again I notice new things.

Superstar Saga is pretty great. Since it seems like you're trying to keep things challenging, I'd stay away from the Mush Badges. They snap the game in half, literally removing all difficulty from any remaining battles in the game if used properly. It's fun to experience such power at least once, though.

Just got "Ultimate Custom Night" last week on Steam and my brother and I played it maybe too much last weekend :P It was free and we're impressed with the quality so far.

For those of you who don't know it's based on the "Five Nights At Freddy's" survival horror game series where you work as a night guard (with the exception of a couple games) in a pizzeria with a bad reputation for a lot of supernatural and bad things happening throughout its history. You have to survive each night during your shift by keeping track and outsmarting animatronic characters that try to enter your office to kill you. In "Ultimate Custom Night" you can create your own night by choosing what characters to have to fend off and their difficulty across the entire series so far which allows for a max of 50 in one game!

Nice, I played UCN too and liked it very much. :D

I now bought Crash for switch, but I won't try it out until I've completed Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze.

Legend of Grimrock. It's a dungeon crawl with a good balance between combat sections, puzzles and hunting for secrets. I got into this game through youtuber Alex Diener, who is part of the DROD community. I've already completed Grimrock 1 on Hard mode, and now I'm just finishing off an old-school mode (i.e. no mapping) run so as to get 100% achievements, before moving on to Grimrock 2 (which my girlfriend gifted me last night -- we each gave each other a game to celebrate the end of her exams).

One of the main points of interest is that both games have dungeon editors, and there are already some pretty awesome mods out there.

Both games are on sale at the moment; you can get both for £9 if you're interested 8-)

Decided to finally try out Sly Cooper and the Theivius Racoonus after rescuing it from the garbage.

Disc is playable just audio clips are hit and miss. I am liking what i'm playing so far, though I may need get another copy just in case. I should probably get this sequels as well.

Thanks for the suggestion (I'm reading it late, though :P), I am using the Mush badges. They aren't as strong now though, as I don't have so many mushrooms, not grinding, and not buying from the item shops.

When my year at school ended I got two great presents from my mother: the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece, and Yoshi's Woolly World. The latter is more appropriate to talk about here ;) (and, to be honest, I haven't used the first yet :$).
Since Yoshi's Woolly World's release, I've been planning to get it, and since it came out I have also been listening to the soundtrack. Surprisingly, I actually liked the Yoshi's Woolly World soundtrack more than the original Yoshi's Island soundtrack - which is my second favourite SNES soundtrack (behind Donkey Kong Country 2).
Now I know the rest of the game is amazing too!! I can't play it at the moment, as I'm at my own home and my Wii U is at my parental home. But I am very impressed by the amazing graphics and level design. ^.^ Even those truly rival the original game, which is very impressive, as so far, the original Yoshi's Island (I wouldn't be able to pick between the SNES and GBA versions) is my favourite video game I've ever played.

I have now finished Superstar Saga, and indeed, the Mush badge is overpowered. Bowser's Castle was quite a challenge, until I decided to try give Mario the Mush badge too (I had assigned him the Soulful Bros. when I got that). Then everything was easy, until the final battle. :P
Cackletta's Soul was very challenging as always. But when I first got though the initial attacks (I got lucky with what she decided to use), I did manage to stick in. I used up all my 1-Up Supers early on, but I managed to avoid dying for the rest of the battle, as I had relearnt most of the attacks.
Also during this playthrough I looked up how to perform the advanced commands of Chopper Bros. and Knockback Bros.. They are very fun! They also seem overpowered, though, as there is no limit on the amount of damage done. It's probably much less significant without the Mush badge, though, as the damage gets to rather low values without it.
Next time I will play with the same rules, but without the Mush Badge. :) Because of my no-grinding rule, there is a great level-difference between my first save file on this cartridge and my second one. The first one, I completed with Luigi at Lv. 46 and Mario at Lv. 45, whereas I completed this one with Luigi at Lv. 36 and Mario at Lv. 35. It also only logs 15:00, compared to 17:24.
I wonder how quickly I can fully complete this game... I've got this idea of once playing the entire game in one day, as a marathon of some kind. :P

I just discovered Universe Sandbox 2 - a simulator that allows you to create own solar systems, galaxies, etc. - or simulate the consequences of many different cosmic events, both realistic and hypothetical ones (e.g. like what would happen if Earth were orbiting a different star than our own).

It's still in its early release phase, but apparently it gets updated pretty quickly. Remember the news of 12 new moons discovered around Jupiter, just a couple of days ago? Apparently those have already been added to the game! :)

There is also a free equivalent to this called Space Engine - I don't know whether it allows the creation of custom solar systems as well, but it seems to consist of a larger overview of the known galaxy, whereas in Universe Sandbox, the known parts of the galaxy are subdivided into different simulations. (For example, if you open up a simulation of all our closest stars, then this simulation doesn't necessarily include all the planets around those stars by default; you can add them manually though.)

There's a YouTuber called Anton Petrov who frequently showcases both programmes, i.e. Universe Sandbox and Space Engine.

I thought some of you might share this field of interest - you probably didn't name yourself Proxima or your pack ranks "Neutron Star" and "Black Hole" for no reason ;) .

On the topic of Superstar Saga, there is a glitch in the English releases where certain enemies like Bowletta and Cackaletta's soul actually have 5000 extra HP so that they can run their special death scripts when their HP dips below 5000. This leads to a glitch where if you can reduce their HP all the way to 0 in one turn, they won't die properly and the game starts to bug out.
I was actually able to do this on my GBA to Cackaletta's soul with Knockback Bros. Advance and Mush Badges. At the time I thought it was some freak coincidence. Only recently did I find out why it happened.

They found new moons around Jupiter? Neat; didn't know that.

I picked up a game called Extreme Exorcism via Playstation Plus recently. It's great, highly recommend. I uploaded a short gameplay vid on Youtube the other day.

Basic premise: It's an arena platformer, with the twist that in most cases, the enemies are your ghosts from previous rounds.

Funny thing happened when I ordered the Rhem games from amazon last christmas, I went to order it and another game came through the post, can't quite remember the name but it was a game I've never even heard of before. I think it was a new game. I could maybe try to order the Rhem game again this christmas for my brother, hoping my brother is not peeking at these forums or anything as he will know what he's getting.

I finished a small 3D puzzle game called "The Room". It was pretty nice; it' essentially a series of puzzles where you have to figure out how to open up this very complicated treasure box. The graphics were great, the detail was nice and the puzzles themselves were mostly very good. I also liked the loose story and theme behind it all; very mysterious. :)

Found another gem among the Playstation Plus games, "La-Mulana EX".

It has similarities to Spelunky, but it isn't randomly generated and doesn't have permadeath (you can always just go back to your last save). Instead, it has a huge pre-made map in a "one-screen-at-a-time" scrolling style (similar to that of the original Oddworld games), full of various puzzles, bosses, etc. I've clocked up about 10 hours - not including time after resets / game overs - and while I don't know for sure, based on how filled out my inventory and how many bosses I've fought I'd guess I'm maybe slightly short of half way to complete?

It's also avaliable on PC, PS3, Vita (which is what I'm playing it on) and a few others - no PS4 sadly - and there's a sequel that's already out on PC and is coming soon to PS4, Switch and XB1 (but I haven't looked much into it yet).

I've got A Link to the Past, but I feel like it's too hard for me. If I ever try to continue it, I should follow a walkthrough, as I keep getting stuck.

Upon further playing, I have to say that - while it's still fun - I'm not as impressed as I was at the start. While it started out with fun, clever but reasonable puzzles and a huge exploratory aspect, later on it becomes a major case of repeated "guide dang it!". When you've already explored most of the map, it just isn't that interesting to explore it all again to find the one thing that's changed; and some of the hints are ridiculously vague, also with some cases where it's entirely unclear even when, let alone where, they apply - often a hint applies to the same screen you find it on, but there are some where it doesn't even apply to a screen in the same area.

Some of Spelunky's secrets are similarly obscure, but at least in that case, it has the draw factor of that the main overall game you're playing each time while hunting for these secrets, is constantly changing, and so it doesn't get boring nearly as fast.

I'm still going to keep playing it, but I've long since abandoned any hope of doing it guide-free. Though I am trying to only refer to guides when I need to, rather than following one all the way - a bit risky seeing as the game has a few permanent-missables, but oh well.

Upon finally completing La Mulana; I do have to say that despite the few really obscure puzzles, it is a pretty good game. A couple of the bosses (Palenque and Baphomet in particular) felt very luck-reliant, but others were very well designed tests of figuring-out and skill (Tiamat in particular, but also Viy and the final boss). One thing that was just stupid was the bonus dungeon - I don't think I've ever seen such a blatant example of fake difficulty as that dungeon (and I've played a decent portion of I Wanna Be The Guy). Nonetheless, it's a good game overall, and I'll certianly be picking up the sequel at some point (which I've heard is a bit more reasonable on the puzzles).

But not yet, because in just over an hour, Red Dead Redemption II releases here, and I will be busy with that for the forseeable future.

Mu brother will be onto that game quickly (Red Dead Redemption II) I remember reading somewhere that the horses or animals you have in the game can be dead forever, if you get unlucky and kill your horse it will be dead forever I think. I remember watching my brother play the first red dead redemption and the graphics looked really nice, he kept on removing the skin from the dead animals.

Me on the other hand I've been playing some (Worms Armageddon) I usually do a game where each team has eight worms and six teams, five computer controlled teams. It's fun even till this day. Worms World party is really good also, different missions to worms armageddon but still really nice game. Titus interactive I think published the pc version of worms world party.

Tiger Woods games are really fun, I've still been playing the tiger woods 2008 version, the best golf games in my opinion.

I've been playing some of the tomb raider games, I'm currently playing tomb raider anniversary. I think I'm on the second last level which has been quite hard.

Also I've been playing some (Parasol stars) on the atari st emulator, I still enjoy my old games.

I ordered the Rhem games for my brother and everything went okay as they arrived.

I've just finished Hollow Knight with 100% completion :thumbsup: (Thanks to the additional content in upgrades to the game, the maximum is actually 112%, but they kept the achievement for 100% as-is and added a new achievement for 112%. So there's a fair amount of leeway in terms of reaching 100% while leaving some of the hardest challenges for later.)

This is a really good Metroidvania game -- for those not familiar with the term, it's a platformer where instead of discrete levels, you explore a whole world, gradually unlocking new areas (usually by gaining abilities); unlocked areas always remain accessible (usually with unlockable fast-travel) and there are plenty of secrets to find by returning to early-game areas with late-game abilities.

It's a genre that I really like in principle, but don't play much -- it seems to be hard to find out about good ones except by watching others play, but then you lose the sense of exploration and finding secrets for yourself. Fortunately, Hollow Knight is one case where the game is still tremendous fun even after having watched it. That's partly because it's really well-made, with stunning visuals and music, and well-designed levels and bosses. It's also because the difficulty level was just about right for me, and I could feel that I was getting better at the game over the time I played it. (I won't do this for a while, but there are achievements for speedruns that I look forward to having a go at.)

Also, while there are a couple of very nasty sections, there are ways in which the game goes out of its way to be nice to you. The Hiveblood charm, available around mid-game, allows you to continually retry the tough platforming challenges without risking dying and losing progress. Unbreakable Strength, the most expensive charm in the game at 15,000 geo, was the last thing I bought, but you could get it earlier if you're willing to grind, and it's a complete game-breaker :P

I think this is one I'll keep plugging away at, when I have time, until I get to 112% 8-)

I’m playing a Pokémon fan game called Pokémon Insurgence it is so hard I’m on elite four/champion I can beat the elite four but I was to underleveled for the champion his top level is 92! So I have to go back and train everyone to at least level 90 might team is a Lucario, Espeon, Delta Gardevoir ( delta Pokémon are Pokémon that are typed differently Delta Gardevoir is ice, electric) Serperior, Nidoking and Mew the music is amazing to and instead of one evil team to take down there are 5! The Abyssal cult, Infernal cult, Sky cult, Darkrai cult, and perfection cult, my favourite is the darkrai cult because I like their leaders back story and her battle theme but you don’t battle her until just before the 6th gym. If you like Pokémon I think you should check it out if you haven’t already! There are some glitches though like once I lost to an elite four member and the game froze when that happens the game saves and shuts off when I went back on the game though I had no Pokémon and it would automatically enter me into the battle and show all my Pokémon were fainted then an error message occurred and the game shut off I was stuck in this loop for a while until I figured out how to load a backup save.
