I've moved on from the Link to the Past Randomizer (for now) and am now playing Fire Emblem 6 with the English patch. Very fun game; I love the GBA Fire Emblem games a lot.

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-)
