Been replaying some short retro games while Dark Souls 3: The Fire Fades slowly makes its way here via jungle raft.

DuckTales -- I didn't know that medals were a thing in this game. Not only you get the best newspaper for collecting $10 million/all big treasures, you also score a gold medal for beating the game on Difficult. It's nice how much DT changes from any% to best ending. Suddenly the game is 5x bigger.

Super Mario Bros. 2 -- Wanted to do a playthrough as Toad only. Wasn't as hard as I thought, although some levels like 5-1 are kind of a pain without a more controllable jump. This game is really cool, I don't give it enough credit usually.

Mystical Fighter -- Pretty unremarkable Genesis beat-'em-up in general, so much that I... forgot how to play it. I got through the whole thing with just jump kicks and roll kicks and it felt super lame. Then I restarted to see if I was missing something and yep, totally forgot about the OP grab attack where you spin enemies and throw them. It's not the most intuitive move to discover on your own because you have to touch the enemy while holding the attack button. I think the manual teaches it, though, at least. Went through the game again and it was much faster (and better).

Thunder Force 3 -- Finished the hardest difficulty (Mania). Damn, this game is freaking awesome. Along with the first party Sega stuff and Treasure, this is the kind of game that makes the best use of the Genesis' speed and sound. The action is so fast and smooth. Mania wasn't as hard as I imagined but still pretty tough.

Gley Lancer -- Another shmup beaten on the hardest difficulty (also named Mania). Except this one was brutal. The bullets are so fast and so many, there were several parts I couldn't get through without constant pausing. It doesn't help that this is one of those shmups where you die and have to restart from a checkpoint. And the power-ups aren't quite as powerful as I remember, though maybe playing this right after TF3 had something to do with it. Why not give you a little shield at least...? The music is fantastic and the action is also lightning fast. I like TF3 better, though.

Playing Yooka-Laylee. For better or worse, it is literally everything you'd expect from an N64 style collect-a-thon. I'm enjoying it.

Finished Bloodborne for the first time. All bosses including DLC and all fixed Chalice Dungeons.

Awesome game. Gotta admit that it took me a while to lose myself in it, probably a combo of series fatigue + still feeling cautious about using my hand for twitchy gameplay. I end up playing in shorter bursts and taking lots of breaks to be safe. Bleh. =\

Yeah, my download history doesn't list this purchase, that's why I'm kinda worried :\

Can you guys help me out w/ something? I just bought the Bloodborne DLC but nothing was downloaded or added to the download list/history.

I checked the game and I have the latest update. I am definitely down $20 or whatever the cost. Did I get screwed? :\ Is there anything early on that can be checked in-game to see if the DLC is there (only played a little bit of BB so far)? The title screen seems the same.

Finished RE7 in 12 hours. \o/

Very cool game. There be spoilers.

I would jump right into Madhouse mode, but I don't think it's very healthy to have a copy of Bloodborne within reach for months and not play it.

Yeah, I should've added that I'm starting with FF6 SNES. Thanks for the info! :D

My hand isn't quite fully healed yet, but it's slowly getting better. I'm thinking about playing some 1-hand Wii games in the meantime, like RE Chronicles and World of Goo.

I'm also considering (finally) playing my first Final Fantasy game, since I hear the older ones can be played with minimal dexterity. For the most part it's just walking around and menuing, right?

Finished Shovel Knight. 13:14 clear time. Hand's still pretty bad when I use the 3DS d-pad. =\ Circle pad is a little better, but still hurts. I'm gonna take a break from games for a week or two just to be safe.

Great game, damn. It was exactly what I expected, which in this case isn't a bad thing at all. Level design is a big Mega Man throwback. I loved the platform gimmicks they came up with, didn't think there was going to be so much original stuff. I like the variety of relics and how some of them can be used as mobility tools. And the music, holy crap.

The game is pretty forgiving. There are some tricky rooms, and I made it harder by doing the checkpoint-less feat on my first trip to almost every level, but all the bosses can be tanked easily with magic + chalices + HP upgrades.

Did as many feats as I reasonably could on a first playthrough: everything except deathless, speedrun, no relics, etc. I think I'm at 39/45. Will get the rest some other time.

Also, whoa, suddenly there's a new character and a challenge mode. Sweet.

Playing Shovel Knight, first time. Damn, what a cool game. Tingles all the right Mega Man senses and then some. My hand really starts to hurt after using the 3DS d-pad, though :\ Can't stop thinking about Nintendo's obnoxious "hey how about a break?" warnings.

In other news, I downloaded some of the more infamous Mega Man ROM hacks available out there. Can't wait to break my controller playing them. I'll post my impressions of them as I play. Here's what I downloaded + descriptions for those who don't know:

- Mega Man in the Mushroom Kingdom is a hack of MM1 with Mario sprites and (I believe) altered stage layouts to resemble Mario's
- Mega Man Ultra is a hack of MM2 that heavily borrows enemies and stage elements from other games
- Rockman No Constancy is a famous hack of MM2 where almost everything is new, from levels to enemy patterns. This one is ridiculously brutal
- Rockman 3: Burst Chaser is MM3 with new level design, tweaked presentation, and... you move 2x as fast! This hack was built for speed. Even enemies take less hits to die
- Rockman 4 Minus Infinity is a MM4 hack that might as well be a brand new sequel. Even the weapons are unique and there's a ranking system. I've seen live streams of this one, it's very polished
- Finally, Rockman 5 Air Sliding is a MM5 hack with altered level design and the ability to slide in the air. Works kind of like the air dash from MMX games. I played part of Wave Man's stage and I can already tell they tweaked the levels just enough to encourage/force using the air slides. Should be fun

Also, if you guys have other MM hack suggestions, please let me know!

Ooooh I always wanted to use those little birds from MM2 as a weapon. Awesome.

Finished 2 classic puzzle games for the first time:

Tetris (NES, Nintendo version)

Dunno if I'm getting old or if the game is that good, but I had a blast. Super relaxing to play at the end of a long day. I used to own the unlicensed Tengen version as a kid, but I never paid much attention to it outside of some games with (and vs.) my parents and my brother.

The main mode of Tetris (Type A) is endless, but Type B has a goal and a proper ending. For the best ending with all the Nintendo characters, you must beat Level 9 Height 5, which requires clearing 25 lines with a ton of scattered blocks clogging up the screen. I'm not good at these games, so I had to constantly pause to think about my next move (with the current state of the puzzle memorized, because they were smart enough to hide the gameplay while it is paused). Most attempts lasted 2-3 seconds, haha.

After that I played Type A for a little while. Started at Level 0 and lost at Lv.12 or 13.

Bust-A-Move (SNES)

Scored the best ending, which requires beating the game in 5 credits or less. Took a few attempts and some science-ing to figure out just what exactly triggers the ending... info about this game is pretty scarce, couldn't find anything. After beating the game with the bad ending, I used a password that takes you to the final boss with no credits used. Lost 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and I was still getting the happy ending. Then I restarted from scratch and played the full game legit. Died 3 times on my successful run. No way I would have done this if you had to beat the whole thing without failing at all.

I love the gameplay, but I get the feeling that the arrow/needle/whatever isn't as precise as it seems. I'm no master of geometry or anything, but sometimes I could swear I was pointing at the right angle and the bubble decided to snap just the one pixel in the wrong direction. I have a crappy free clone of this game on my phone and it seems more precise than the real thing for some reason.

The game is super long. At 100 levels it takes 1.5-2 hours to get to the final boss, and then you gotta hope RNGsus doesn't summon the worst bubbles. It has passwords, but you have to die to see it, so cheesing this game is not that simple. Very cool idea, though, that boss fight. I like it when puzzle games do that. This game is set in the universe of Bubble Bobble... all the creatures and graphics have that adorable BB personality (Bubble Bobble theme plays during credits too).

Cool stuff.
