I usually play Street Fighter 3: Third Strike and Alpha 2 weekly. Those games never get old for me.

Started playing Dr Mario+Germbuster on Wiiware on my Wii last night. My reaction time isn’t what it used to be…

‘You swapped three different N64 games for Pokemon Stadium? Where’s your pride? Your dignity?!?

‘…I traded it for a Pikachu’

Recently stumbled upon The Lost World: Jurassic Park for Sega Genesis and am oddly compelled to see it through. I can't believe it was out in '97, three years into PlayStation and Saturn. No wonder I have no recollection of it coming out at the time.

I finally got a copy of Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine for my N64 so that's been taking up my time recently. Shockingly well made game. It's obvious that it took strong inspiration from Tomb Raider and Ocarina of Time but I mean that fully as a compliment. Fun puzzle designs, interesting environments, and it's even fully voiced cutscenes. I consider it a special part of my collection since the only way to get the game back in the day was either from Blockbuster or directly from the LucasArts website.

The game I'm playing is Scaler on the PS2.

About a year ago I got knee-deep into the Genesis after my music composition adventures brought me to the Castlevania Bloodlines soundtrack. Since then my love and knowledge for the Genesis has grown exponentially. Currently playing Phantasy Star IV and Thunder Force IV. They're so difficult but so much fun. What's your favorite SNES and Genesis soundtrack? Mine would be Mega Man X and Thunder Force IV.

The SNES and the Genesis have their strengths. They both do what they do so well. Nothing beats the echoed SNES sound or the Full-Sounding FM synthesis of the Genesis. Did you know that the N64 had built in audio effects, like delay too?

Doom on PSX. What an absolute gem. And I've restarted Castlevania SotN again for the first time since probably 1998...

I just recently went through Metroid 2, Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion, Metroid Zero Mission after hearing about the recent remaster of Prime, along with Astro Boy Omega Factor and am now working on Gunstar Super Heroes. Good times. For Super Metroid, I had only gotten partway through it before getting distracted by other things and losing my place, so it was nice to go back to it. Playing the two GBA Metroids back to back, I definitely prefer Fusion.

New to the site!

Had some bad luck lately. Spent around 150 hours on Etrian Odyssey now, but still have 0 out of 3 dragon scales. Might put it on the back burner for a bit.

Also playing 1943 (NES) and that last level is killing me. Did it many times in my youth but now that there are retro achievements on the line, I can’t do it lol!

Finally, started up Bonk 3 just to have something different.

When my uncle stole me, I don’t remember where he took me, but I do have a recurring dream where I almost find out.

@Gorejelly 1943 is fun from beginning to end. I'm also stuck on the last level, just on the CPS-2 version. There's a yashici somewhere in the final level, I just have to find it.

I’m playing the NES version, so I’m not 100% sure they are in the same place, but on the NES, right as the silver ships appear below (before you start your attack run), there will be 5 red planes that zip across the screen. They drop the yashichi.

And, agreed, love the game. Just demoralized that I still haven’t beaten it yet.

@Gorejelly You are Godsend. I find it hilarious that there are games I strongly advocate for without ever actually having beaten. I've played them plenty, just never completed. The MOTHER series and Thunder Force IV come to mind. I am good at video games as a whole but something about sidescrolling SHMUPS just delete all my previous EXP with video games. What about you?

@MetaCrystal I have played that final level in 1943 now so many times I can see it in my dreams haha!

When I was young, I would almost always make the attempts to finish what I considered good shmups (just my own opinion on the game, not related to anything else). That included ones like the 194x series, thunder series, sol-feace, gaiares, axelay, musha, philosoma, jackal, well there are probably dozens more I’m missing. I was able to brute force my way back through them when I was younger, but I’m not sure I have the reflexes any more haha!

RPGs on the other hand I would sometimes never get around to finishing. Some yes some no. Etrian Odyssey 1 I must have gotten down to 10 or 15 many, many times. But, now I actually put in the time to finish it, but I still can’t lol. I beat the game and mapped every floor, but I still can’t get every item for some of the last achievements.

Ah well that’s how it is. I do plan to revisit the Mother/EB series very soon too!

I plugged in and set up the N64 again, and I have been playing Rocket: Robot on Wheels. I also finished Tonic Trouble which I was close to beating.
I have enjoyed getting to play Rocket again.

I’ve been playing through Namco’s PS1 games as I’m updating a book project.

Was anyone a fan of Treasures of the Deep?

Oh yes! The Evercade Exp arrived today. Time to play some retro games, as soon as the handheld is fully charged. I think I will start with Street Fighter II : Hyper Fighting.

Playing the Capcom AvP beat 'em for the first time ever. It is amazing as I always thought it would be!

1944 : The Loop Master is so much fun, even though I am bad in this genre.

I think I will have a great and challenging time with the Evercade Exp.
