Games Beaten in 2017

Number of Games Beaten in 2017: TBD

Beat December 1, 2017

Like many games I love, I plowed through Dragon Quest VIII on the 3DS when it was first released...but then stopped playing it because I didn't want the game to end. Dumb logic, right? I know, there's something wrong with me. But anyway, I consider the PS2 original to be one of the greatest RPGs ever made...and the 3DS version improves on the original in pretty much every way. From adding new party members to add, to new sidequests, this is the definitive version of the game...and the fact that it's portable is fantastic. If you like RPGs and you've never played Dragon Quest VIII, then you owe it to yourself to play this game. If you played Dragon Quest VIII to death, then this is still worth picking up for all of the extras. It very well could be my favorite game on the system...and I'm so glad that I could fall in love with Dragon Quest VIII all over again.

Super Mario Odyssey - Nintendo Switch

Beat November 20, 2017

I'll be honest - I have never beaten a 3D Mario game...I liked a few of them, but they never really held my interest enough to keep me playing until the end. While some Mario games in the last decade were good, none of them managed to hook me like the SNES and NES classics. Super Mario Odyssey has changed that. Easily my favorite 3D Mario game, Odyssey is probably best described as a mix of Mario and Kirby...or maybe more accurately, Mario and Brave Fencer Musashi. Basically, you toss your hat at certain enemies or objects to "possess" them and use their abilities. Each level is interesting and fun to explore...it's easy enough for children to enjoy, but it's also challenging enough so adults won't get bored. Super Mario Odyssey isn't quite good enough to knock Breath of the Wild off as the best game on the Switch, but it's right there. It's been a while since I handed out any perfect scores for games, and in less than a year Nintendo got two of them out of me with their Zelda and Mario franchises. If Breath of the Wild made you think that you might get a Switch, Super Mario Odyssey should turn that "might" into a "will."

Medievil - PlayStation

Beat October 26, 2017

After beating a game as a guy wearing boxer shorts, like the last game I beat, I figured my next Halloween-ish game should also have some humor, so I decided to play one of the MANY games that I started, but never completed over the years, MediEvil. It's a surprisingly long game - I think it took me between 5 and 5 1/2 hours to make my way through every level. I wasn't expecting it to be more than 2-3 hours, tops. But anyway, MediEvil still has its charm, and while not refined by any means, the combat is fine for what it is. The camera (like many 3D games from this time) is kind of a pain, and some of the platforming is a bit of a pain (usually due to the camera), but for the most part this is an enjoyable experience that many folks look back on fondly, and is worth checking out if you've never attempted to save Gallowmere before.

Ghosts 'N Goblins - Famicom and NES

Beat October 24, 2017

After WWE 2K18 took me off track of playing Halloween-ish games, I decided to tackle Ghosts 'N Goblins. Afterall, I beat Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts back in college, I knew I could do this...I just knew it wasn't going to be easy. In fairness, it wasn't quite as hard as I thought it would be...after a few hours in, I changed my strategy from "kill everything" to "avoid everything" and that made playing through so much easier. This is not a very long game...without dying, my guess is that it would tke someone...maybe 30 minutes to beat? With dying, continuing, and starting over, I spent about 2 days on this game. If you're up for a good, challenging platformer, Ghosts 'N Goblins is a pretty good choice.

WWE 2K18 - PlayStation 4

Beat October 21, 2017

It's been a while since I worked my way through the entire story mode of a WWE game...And this one was a total mess. Why am I given choices when the story is linear? I can tell someone that I'm going to do something, then the game has me cut a promo saying that I changed my mind...I didn't want to change my mind, that's why I chose the option I chose. Walking around backstage is neat and all, but the story itself is just terrible...luckily the gameplay makes up for it. Universe mode is better than last year, and they added enough improvements to the gameplay as a whole to make this a worthwhile purchase for WWE fans.

Layers of Fear - PlayStation 4

Beat October 7, 2017

I've had Layers of Fear for a few months now, and have been wanting to play it, but I held off until we were closer to Halloween. Now that it's October, I figured I was close enough. Layers of Fear is basically a haunted house simulator. There's some puzzles to be solved, sure, but most of the game just involves the player following a path while the game attempts to scare you during your travel. While I find it fun to take my time and search through every nook and cranny, I can easily see why some people may not enjoy their time here. My only real complaint is that the size of an area to trigger the icon to pick up or interact with items is sometimes ridiculously small...Other than that, Layers of Fear was enjoyable enough where I regret not picking up the DLC when I bought the game (both were on sale) because it would give me reason to walk through the house one more time.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis - PlayStation

Beat October 6, 2017

Well, now Resident Evil 3 has been beaten to go along with the first two. I have mixed feelings about this game. Overall, I think it might be my favorite of the original 3...But while it's probably my favorite, I think Resident Evil 2 is slightly better. Nemesis stalking you through the story adds some tension to the game...but it doesn't take too long to get used to dodging enemies...and once you're used to dodging enemies, if you've got the bullets, it's not too hard to take him down each time you meet (and you get rewards for doing so) which makes him feel like a pest more than a threat. I do like the fact that you're exploring Raccoon City instead of just one, large building...and returning to the police station of Resident Evil 2 for a brief spell is a nice nod to the previous game. Overall, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is a very solid addition to the Resident Evil franchise and well worth checking out if you enjoyed the first two games.

Resident Evil 2 - PlayStation

Beat October 2, 2017

With the first Resident Evil beaten, I felt it was time to beat number 2 as well. The second game in the series does a much better job of making players feel uneasy...twitching corpses make you frequently second-guess if you actually managed to kill that zombie or not. In comparison to the first game, I also feel that this one is much easier. I found myself wandering around aimlessly sometimes in the first game, not sure what to do next...in comparison, I managed to get through Resident Evil 2 with very few hiccups. Anyway, I suppose I might as well continue going through the series...beating games that I haven't, and re-visiting the games that I have. We are in the month where Halloween resides, afterall.

Resident Evil - PlayStation

Beat October 1, 2017

Much like Earthbound, which I beat last month, Resident Evil is one of those games where I've played it many times, but just never stuck with it long enough to see the end. Well, I can finally scratch it off the list now...just in time for October. I've considered going through the Director's Cut next while the game is still fresh in my mind...But I'll probably move on to something else and return to the Director's Cut when my poor memory forgot most of the game - it's more fun the first time around, and if I can't remember stuff, that's the next best thing. Anyway, Resident Evil put survival horror on the map, and it still holds up fairly well today. Of course, if you want a prettier version, get the HD versions. I like enjoying games in their original form when I can, so if you're like me, nothing beats the poor voice acting and outdated graphics of the original.

Dead In The Water - PlayStation

Beat September 30, 2017

Dead in the Water has been a game that I've always liked...but I've also always been frustrated by it. The game is basically split into two modes - racing and car combat. The car combat part is pretty fun and handles like Twisted Metal or Vigilante 8, but with water physics tossed in...The racing can be fun...but unfortunately, it also handles like Twisted Metal or Vigilante 8, which takes a while to get used to...and even when you are used to it, expect to find yourself getting stuck in corners at least once every other race. Anyway, I finally stuck with Dead in the Water long enough to see it to the end...and while I think that the game is just merely pasable, it does have enough personality that I wish a sequel had come along to (hopefully) improve upon what we have here to make something really good.

Easter Bunny's Big Day - PlayStation

Beat September 29, 2017

Yeah, I know...We're nowhere near Easter, but I felt like torturing myself this morning so I popped in Easter Bunny's Big Day...And with minimal effort (almost none, honestly) the game is beaten...And I've learned that the Easter Bunny has a friend that helps him called Robo Bunny. Even at my age, this game is teaching me things. But anyway, I think VERY young children might enjoy this game (all I saw was 2 kinds of mini-games and a TON of jigsaw puzzles) but even younger kids might get bored here pretty quickly. I'd recommend just going out and buying a physical jigsaw puzzle for your child instead - your kid will have more of a challenge to help their brain grow and you won't have to ever look at that egg-shaped Robo Bunny...a win-win situation.

Amagon - Famicom and NES

Beat September 23, 2017

Amagon was the first video game that I ever borrowed from a friend...And I think I must have gotten only to the third level back then, because everything after that point was new to me when I played through. Amagon is a passable scrolling shooter. You don't have infinite bullets, so you have to continue collecting them as you go. After a while, you'll come across a power-up that will allow you (when you press Select) to transform into a muscle-bound giant for a limited time. Wielding a gun, one hit and you're dead. Wielding your bicep guns, you can take as many hits as you want before transforming back...So deciding the right time to transform is key to surviving the game. I tried to beat this a few years ago and deemed it "too tough" and gave up. I was wrong...I just lacked patience. While Amagon isn't easy, with a bit of patience, strategy, and practice you'll find yourself at the "The End" screen like I did.

Destruction Derby - PlayStation

Beat September 23, 2017

You know...I've played Destruction Derby a ton, but I never sat down and played my way through every single league to completely beat the game. I have now. I do enjoy Destruction Derby a lot...unfortunately, the iffy scoring system can lead to frustration. You get points for wrecking cars - for max points, you want to either total an opponent's car or make them spin out 360°...The problem is that there's always a chance that points aren't rewarded, which can hurt you big-time in the standings on some levels. But anyway, I made my way through and I conquered this game...Like my score suggests, it's passable...The racing isn't great, but it is fun to just ram into other vehicles instead of trying to have a fair, sportsman-like race.

Parasite Eve - PlayStation Network

Beat September 17, 2017

Much like Metroid Fusion earlier in the month, my poor memory works to my advantage as I've played through Parasite Eve for the first time since...maybe 2000? I forgot much of the game, but a few key spots were quickly remembered as I entered the respective areas. One thing that I did not remember was how short this game was. I beat it in roughly five and a half hours. I thought it was at least a 20 hour game. But anyway, it's still a good game worth checking out if you haven't already. With a mix of survival horror and RPG elements that blends together pretty well, it's a game that fans of either genre will probably enjoy.

Knuckle Bash - Arcade

Beat September 15, 2017

Being a huge professional wrestling fan, as well as a Final Fight fan, this was a very pleasant surprise to find. Knuckle Bash is basically a mix between a fighting game and a side-scrolling beat-em-up, but all of the characters are professional wrestlers. The controls aren't smooth, and the action isn't always exciting, but I enjoyed myself enough to see the game through to the end. The ability to "recruit" some of your opponents as you go, increasing your selection of playable characters is a pretty neat idea, too. Knuckle Bash will probably never make someone's "best games of all-time" list, but I really enjoyed it for what it is.

EarthBound - Super famicom and SNES

Beat September 9, 2017

You know, as much as I've always liked Earthbound, I've never beaten it...until now. I finally just said, "Now's the time." I spent a weekend just plowing through the game. On the plus side, that weekend let me see this game through from beginning to end...on the negative side, it only took me a weekend, and I was left wanting more....but better to understay its welcome than overstay it, I suppose. Anyway, if a fun, quirky RPG sounds like something that would be up your alley, then give Earthbound a try. Where else would you be able to battle an enemy named "A Big Pile of Puke?"

Metroid Fusion - 3DS Virtual Console

Beat September 8, 2017

It's been quite a while since I played through Metroid Fusion, so I figured it was time to play through again now that my poor memory had nearly no recollection of anything that happened in the game. It's still just as fun as it's always been...but it's more linear and directive-based than I'd like. Call me crazy, but the reason I love Super Metroid is the fact that there is no direction...you just wander around until you find somewhere you can advance. Anyway, minor gripe aside, this is still fantastic and well worth checking out if you have the means.

Dead Rising 2 - PlayStation 4

Beat August 16, 2017

I love the Dead Rising series, but when I play, I tend to overdo it and get tired of it. That was the case with Dead Rising 2, which I started last year immediately after beating the original Dead Rising, but quickly moved on to other games shortly after starting. Well, the Dead Rising bug came back and I plowed through the second game in the franchise. After re-playing the games that were re-released for PS4, my stance on the first two Dead Rising games has actually reversed. I used to prefer Dead Rising 2, but now I think I prefer the original...But anyway, I'm just rambling. If you've never played a Dead Rising game, I do think that this game is more forgiving and a little easier than the others that I've played, so it may be a nice place to get your feet wet.

Puyo Puyo Tetris - Nintendo Switch

Beat June 4, 2017

I absolutely LOVE the Puyo Puyo franchise...and I like Tetris, too. I've always been a bit of a puzzle game nerd....However, I didn't realize how lop-sided my skills were between these two games until I played Puyo Puyo Tetris and dominated any levels with Puyo Puyo and struggled to pass levels with head-to-head Tetris. My Tetris skills aren't bad by any means - I won a Tetris tournament a few years ago at a gaming convention in the area...But for whatever reason, I really struggled to pick up wins when forced to play with Tetris blocks...Then the next level would be Puyo Puyo (or a mix) and I would absolutely dominate. Anyway, this is an extremely well done game and I highly recommend it for any puzzle game junkie. The story mode will last you a while, then the multiplayer will keep you coming back for more.

I was really excited for Ultra Street Fighter II...and while I'm not necessarily disappointed with what this game delivered, it shows how far we've come in terms of what we expect out of game content. If Ultra Street Fighter II was released back in '96 or '97, this would have been absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, a fighting game without a lot of modes beyond an "Arcade mode" these days is kind of a disappointment. Also the two new characters to the Street Fighter II games, Evil Ryu and Violent Ken, aren't new characters in terms of other games...and since they're just alternate versions of characters already in the game, I felt that they were a letdown. Including a few characters from the first Street Fighter, Street Fighter III or IV, the Alpha and EX series...anything else would have been more exciting for this player. But anyway, lack of modes aside, the actual combat is just as enjoyable as it always was, so if nothing else, Ultra Street Fighter II provides a nice trip down memory lane.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Nintendo Switch

Beat April 29, 2017

Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U was one of my favorite entries in the Mario Kart franchise. So, to see it re-released on the Switch, with all DLC included on the game card and to be able to play it on the go (or on the can) made me quite happy. It was a joy to play through this again, and it'll be fun playing it on my next plane trip...It might even make anti-social me invite the passender next to me to a two-player game. Look at that! Mario Kart has the potential to make me a social butterfly! Who knew?

Well...I put in Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ and beat the game on my first play. I guess I've played the Binding of Isaac games a lot. So, I'm happy that one of them is the 700th game that I've beaten. Anyway, Afterbirth+ is that nice kind of new release that has a lot of familiar aspects to it, but there's enough new here to make it feel like its well worth playing through again, even if you've played the previous games to death. In these early days of the Switch release, this is one of the must-play titles that are available, in my opinion.

Me beating Breath of the Wild kind of came as a surprise - afterall my first two weeks of playing the game, I barely advanced the story. All I did was explore. So, when I did begin to advance the story, it all went pretty quick - especially since most of the exploring wound up making Link more powerful. Anyway, I think that Breath of the Wild is my favorite Zelda game to date, knocking Twilight Princess off of its pedistal. I purchased the Wii U version as well (I have a hunch that it may be worth something down the road - or at the very least, hard to come by - kind of like Gamecube's version of Twilight Princess) and there's a good chance that I start this game all over again on that console in a few months just so I have an excuse to play through this game again. It's well worth the purchse of a Switch by itself...especially since it allows you to save Hyrule on the go.

Girl Fight - PlayStation Network

Beat February 13, 2017

Girl Fight had some potential to be a really good fighting game...but unfortunately, it's very bland. It has a unique concept of only being able to play through arcade mode with one character...Then each time you play through, you unlock another character and another until you're done. The problem is, none of them are surprises. The loading screen shows you every character and you can play as every character right away in versus mode. Anyway, Girl Fight is basically just a sub-par fighter that uses sexuality in an attempt to hide all of its weaknesses...a poor attempt, because you're likely get bored shortly after playing.

The Pringles Game (Homebrew Game) - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive

Beat January 1, 2017

I did not expect to start off the new year by beating a Genesis homebrew game about the decapitated Pringles head eating Pringles chips...but that's how the year has started, so I guess I'll go with it. Anyway, The Pringles Game is actually pretty good...but it's also very short...like 5 minutes short. With the short game length and pretty low replay value, I can't really recommend this game for the sake of being entertained. Buuuut, if you're looking to see a unique game with very good graphics and a good concept, the Pringles Game is worth checking out...and if there was more content, I probably would be singing its praises even more.

I think this will be my last Dance Dance Revolution game....at least for a while. Best Hits is a nice place for newbies to start since its soundtrack is basically a collection of favorites from all the DDR games up to this game's release. While there's not a ton in terms of innovation, the fact that it's the equivalent of a "Greatest Hits" album will likely be enough for DDR fans to feel the need to play this game. Heck, it worked with me.

No, I didn't sway from my current DDR fad, Dancing Stage is the European name for Dance Dance Revolution...so, I just hopped to a different continent. Or maybe I danced? Anyway, Euromix was decent for its time...But in the grand scheme of all DDR games released on the Playstation, it gets lost in the shuffle pretty easily. Basically, some licensed songs from Universal records is one of the only things separating this from the others...but still...I'm a fan of the DDR franchise, so I played it. If you are, too...You'll probably want to play it as well.

'Twas the day of Christmas, and all--.....I did this already, didn't I? Anyway, DDR: Disney Mix has a neat mode added in that basically allows you to go up to a friend and tell them that "It's on." Followed by a dance-off. If you're the party pooper that says that it's not on and that nothing is on, then you won't care for this...the rest of us will likely enjoy it. Also worth noting is that several Disney songs are included...as the title suggests. So..if Disney songs from your childhood can entice you to try a dancing game for the first time, I suppose this would be a good one to try out.

Psychic Force 2 is more like what I was expecting the original Psychic Force to be...and it's better in every way, in my opinion. While it still feels kind of awkward at times to be fighting in mid-air for the duration of the fight, this make it feel a bit more smooth than the previous game.

Psychic Force has a bad history with me - it's a very rare game and when I finally found a copy at the Midwest Gaming Classic, I purchased it, got home, and realized that the disc was never put into the case. I later was lucky enough to find the disc by itself at a store, so I could complete the package, but still...frustrations have happened. Unfortunately, after playing it, it wasn't worth the hassle. Sure, Psychic Force is passable - but for all that effort, I was hoping for more. This is a fighting game worth checking out if you want something a little different, but otherwise I'd avoid it...which should be easy due to its rarity.

But anyway, it has been beaten now...and it's a bizarre adventure that I may repeat again down the road.

I like 5th Mix, but it continues the downward trend of DDR releases - it's still fun, but without a whole lot new to bring to the table, it also feels like an unnecessary release. But, if you're like me, you won't care and you'll still enjoy every moment of your time with this game anyway. What can I say? I love DDR. But really, unless you can't get enough of the series, like me, this is a completely skipable edition to the series.

The only real difference is the ability to change song difficulties...which sounds like a minor thing, but when you perfect each song, being able to up your skills is pretty nice. It's worth checking out if you enjoy the series.

Bio FREAKS - PlayStation

Beat December 11, 2016

I had no idea that Bio FREAKS was a fighting game when I popped it in to play for the first time...but it was, and it's passable. Basically, Bio FREAKS feels like a very crude version of what Midway released on the PS2 when they resurrected the Mortal Kombat franchise...so in that regard, it's interesting. Otherwise, it's not really worth tracking down unless you're a diehard fighting game fan.

Beat December 11, 2016

In an attempt to finally update some of my "ranked by preference" lists, I've been playing a ton of Playstation games...However, I stopped for a while due to Dance Dance Revolution hooking me. DDR isn't really a hard game to beat, but I still find it to be enjoyable - whether it be playing via controller or dance pad. This was the original home release...and expect a flood of these games to fill this list soon...

My time through the world of Skyrim was wonderful again...until after 120 hours worth of sidequests into the game, I attempted to progress the story and came across a glitch that prevented me from continuing. I was level 64. Thankfully I had a save at level 23 that allowed me to complete the game (and platinum it) but it was quite disappointing that those 40 levels of gameplay were essentially put to waste. Glitches aside, Skyrim is just as fun today as it was when it was initially released. It would have been great if the glitches had been fixed for this re-release, but when a game is this fun, a glitch here and there is tolerable...even if one ends your game.

My Name is Mayo - PlayStation Vita

Beat December 9, 2016

Well, I took a week to rest my fingers before mashing my way to beating My Name is Mayo again. I don't really have much to add that I didn't already say on the PS4 version below aside from the puzzling lack of touch screen support - one would think that tapping the mayo jar with your actual finger would be a natural addition to the game, yet it's not. But anyway, for my thoughts on the game, just take a gander below.

My Name is Mayo - PlayStation 4

Beat December 2, 2016

Well, My Name is Mayo has arrived on PS4, and it is accompanied by probably the easiest platinum trophy to date - it literally takes 30 minutes to get it, and all you have to do is just mash buttons. While that sounds boring, the thing that makes My Name is Mayo worthwhile is the trophies themselves - the trophies that unlock have names that are actually parts of stories. By continuing down the path of a specific story, each time a trophy unlocks, you get a new sentence for that story. While the stories are only a few sentences long, it's still a clever way to implement trophies into a game. Anyway, if you want an easy platinum (or 2 if you have a Vita) for 99 cents, My Name is Mayo is worth a look - likewise, if you're looking for something odd, this is a nice place to look as well.

Guilty Gear - PlayStation

Beat November 28, 2016

For some reason, I struggled with Guilty Gear in the past...But for whatever reason, not tonight. Maybe it's because I'm half asleep and as a result, I'm very patient with my fighting patterns instead of just rushing in and mashing buttons...but whatever the reason, Guilty Gear has been beaten...and beaten with relative ease. That said, if you're looking for a quality fighting game on the Playstation, this game is fantastic. The only thing preventing me from giving it a better score is the lack of game modes...around the time it came out, fighting games were moving away from only having arcade modes and adding in other modes to keep replayability up. Otherwise, the game looks absolutely gorgeous, it plays smoothly, and is just a very good overall experience. If you like fighting games, you'll likely love Guilty Gear.

Beat November 25, 2016

Since I moved back in June, I was able to move my game collection into a walk-in closet that I have transformed into my "Game Room." Since that time, one of the things that my friends and I enjoy doing is pulling out random games and playing them - oftentimes Playstation One games since that's the biggest chunk of my collection. Well, a friend and I decided to pop this game in and together we "beat" it...Basically, we qualified for all events, saw the podium, and watched the credits roll. Like most track and field games, if you plan on playing, expect your fingers to go numb from mashing buttons...and some of the events are kind of unforgiving, so you might meet some frustrations along the way, but when playing with a friend, this is a very enjoyable experience....But as I found out when capturing screenshots for this a few days later, playing solo isn't nearly as fun.

Monster Jam: Crush It! - PlayStation 4

Beat November 25, 2016

This was rough. A friend of mine asked me if I wanted an easy platinum trophy before he traded this game in...I hesitantly said alright. Two long hours later, I got a platinum trophy, but I also lost much of my sanity...I'm still trying to decide if it was worth it. Monster Jam: Crush It! is basically 2 games in 1. The first game is basically just Trials Fusion with monster trucks...except no real skill is involved. Most of the courses I held the X button down and did nothing else...which resulted in me passing each course with the best rating possible. I was even taking screenshots as the game played, which takes time, and it still didn't prevent me from getting the best rating...So, boring. The second game is more traditional monster truck races and shows in arenas...which would probably be fun if the controls weren't so wretched. Overall, Monster Jam: Crush It! is like most of the Monster Jam games...a Monster Lamb....because by counting them you can go to sleep....C'mon, ewe know that was funny.

Jazzpunk: Director's Cut - PlayStation Network

Beat October 27, 2016

I LOVED Jazzpunk on Steam...when it was released on PS4, I had to buy myself a copy there as well. This wonderful game is a must-play for anyone that loves the bizarre...because Jazzpunk is nothing but bizarre. It's a short game, and the platinum trophy can be gotten for it in a matter of an hour or two if that's all you plan on doing...but if you wander and explore around to see everything in each level, you can add a few more hours to the overall playthrough time. Anyway, if you're a trophy hunter and want an easy trophy, this is a good game to get...Likewise, if you like games that are just plain odd and entertaining, you can't get much better than this game.

Dead Rising - PlayStation 4

Beat October 2, 2016

I never beat Dead Rising on Xbox 360. After beating Dead Rising 2 (which is much easier, in my opinion) a few years ago, I went back to the original on 360 and got burnt out and ultimately stopped playing. Fast forward a few years and with Dead Rising remastered for the PS4, and include the patience that I seem to gain as I age, and Dead Rising has been beaten pretty soundly. In the process, I've gained a new appreciation for the original game in the series...I still prefer Off the Record a little more, but the original Dead Rising is now easily a very close second place. If you missed out on the fun of this back when it was released, now's a fantastic time to get caught up - the bargain bin price of $20 is an extra bonus.

Swamp Thing - Famicom and NES

Beat September 5, 2016

I did a responsible, adult thing and spent my Labor Day weekend getting good enough at Swamp Thing so that I could beat it...And beat it, I did. While it's not exactly the brawler that one might expect from a Swamp Thing game (in fact, it's basically a platformer with very poor controls for attacking) it does have its own charm to it that you might discover if you stick with it. However, with awful, awkward controls I don't think too many will stick with it...especially since level 2 is that horrid factory level - one of my least favorite levels in video game history. In fact, if you can beat the factory, it's pretty much smooth sailing through the rest of the game, in my opinion. Swamp thing could definitely be worse, but with the plentiful selection of good, quality platformers on the NES, Swamp Thing should have probably sunk back into the marsh he came from....because he came from a marsh you know, so many trees in the game! He should be named Marsh Thing....The more you know.

It's kind of ironic that the first game I've beaten on the Xbox One is an Xbox 360 game...But Fallout 3 happened to be on sale...and then all of the DLC went on sale a few weeks later...and the next thing you know, I'm falling in love with Fallout 3 all over again. Anyway, thanks to the screenshot feature of the Xbox One (which is such a pain and way more complicated to access the pictures you took than it needs to be) I managed to nab my own screen for this game, seen above. So that's neat. Otherwise, I put nearly 70 hours into this game over the past month or so, and did not come across a single bug. I don't know if the digital version on the Microsoft store is patched up or if the Xbox One hardware is just powerful enough to not be affected or what, but the disc 360 version was buggy when I originally beat the game. The PS3 version and PS3 version of the Game of the Year Edition were both buggy. The PC version was buggy - both digital and disc-based. So playing through without a single bug was a very pleasant surprise...So, I suppose, if you're looking for some nostalgia and want to play this wonderful game from about 7-8 years ago, this might be the version to go with. It's just as fun as it ever was, but with the added benefit of seemingly being free of the bugs that plagued it when it first released.

Star Ocean: First Departure - PlayStation Portable

Beat August 11, 2016

I've been playing the original Star Ocean on and off for the past 2 months or so...and while I've always liked the original Star Ocean, I've never beaten it. That has now been remedied...and I'm very surprised at how short it was. I finished it in a little over 17 hours...but that was with me wandering around and grinding levels. I wouldn't be surprised if there are people who have beaten this in under 10 hours. That said, it feels like once the story really gets going, it comes to an abrupt end. It's still an enjoyable experience while it lasts, but with a little more story, better fleshed-out characters, and perhaps another planet or two to explore, I can't help but feel like this could have been absolutely amazing. As it is, it's just average.

Rocket League is one of the few PS4 games on here that I did not make screenshots for...Mainly because I don't own it and it was played exclusively at a friend's house. I'm not going to lie...I'm not really a fan. I get the appeal to a degree, but the game feels extremely limited to me in terms of replay value. My friends and I beat a season, then we won a game of every other variation...of which most don't have their own season modes...and I don't know. There are people that absolutely love this game, and nothing against those folks, but I just don't see it. It's kind of neat for what it is, but to me, that's about as much praise as I can give it.

I'm not tooting my own horn with this list. It's more of just a little project to see how little of a life I have. Obviously, the more games I've realized I've beaten, the less of a life it will reveal that I have. I'm basically just making the list out of curiosity of my own geekiness. Indeed.

In 2010, I started to add comments as I beat games...Kind of like mini-reviews for the game. In 2011, I started logging the date I beat the game as well. In 2014 (geez, has it been that long already?), I began to add screenshots...99% of which are ones that I personally took. Perhaps the list will evolve even further if I can come up with any other ideas.

Generally, I consider a game 'beaten' if I see an ending. For fighting games, I consider the game beaten when I've seen the ending for all characters in the game. For older games that don't have an ending, just levels repeated on harder difficulty, I feel that if I've gone through all levels three or more times in a row, the game has pretty much been beaten. Of course, there are exceptions, but those are my general rules.

As time goes on, I'll add more to the list.

We'll see if I keep this updated, but here's the number of games beat for each system as of December 31, 2016...

Great list idea! I can't even begin to remember all the old DOS games I played as a kid, but it would at least double all the console games I played.

Thanks for letting me know the upside-down castle isn't in Encore of the Night. I never even thought about that. Is the castle the same for the most part?

Your overall enthusiasm for the game has made me really want to play it.

Posted: 7 years, 1 month ago at Oct 31 1:30
the castle is mostly the same, based on memory, but some extra rooms have been added so that a few of the upside-down castle bosses are in the normal castle. and i haven't tried it, but i believe that you can still beat the game earlier and get the 'bad' ending by killing richter rather than saving him. i'm sure i'll find out. i'll likely go through and play it again sometime down the road.

I'm glad to hear you've finished Circle of the Moon after much delay. It was my first Castlevania game, and I got stuck in it and stopped playing when I first got it too. It was just as hard as it needed to be though. Some Castlevania games really give you a run for your money...

I was missing the item that transforms the poisoned water into regular water...I had actually played enough and leveled up enough where I made it through most of that area without it, but I could never get past it and just kind of gave up after a while. Oddly enough, I had no problem finding the water purifying item this time around.
Posted: 6 years, 9 months ago at Mar 20 7:32
Going into the water area before getting the purifier is the big sequence break point for speed-runners/people who want a challenge. So I'm not surprised there are players who go on without it.

@ New Super Mario Bros. - I just didn't find the levels that interesting, and I'm glad I'm not alone in thinking this installment doesn't live up to previous 2D Marios. For some reason I've always preferred 3D Marios, which is strange given I've generally been a 2D-oriented guy in my gaming life.

@ Dawn of Sorrow - Glad you finished this one! Most people aren't fans of the forced touch screen aspects.

Are there any major differences between the console and Vita versions of Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3? Slight gameplay changes, visual, audio...?
Avatar
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Feb 22 20:49
Maybe some minor graphical differences, due to the power of the PS3 and 360 compared to the Vita, but I've never been too keen on noticing stuff like that. But from what I noticed and read, even the updates that the console owners had to update were included in the Vita version right out of the box. It's pretty impressive.
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at May 29 4:18
That's impressive collection, I must say.

It's good to see your positive thoughts on the Game Boy King of Fighters '95. I'm getting a "lot" of eight SNK/Takara fighters for the Game Boy, as well as a Game Boy Color fighting game by Takara called "Kettou Beast Wars" which looks to be in the same style as their Game Boy games. Since King of Fighters, Fatal Fury, and Samurai Shodown never made it on the Game Boy Color (save for the mysterious and dreamy Super Fighters 99), Kettou Beast Wars would probably the closest thing stylistically to a game along these lines. Except with Transformers.

Do the different playable characters in RockMan: Battle & Fighters play really differently? Are there four, or three? Heck, I own the game, but I don't feel like getting it out right now.
Avatar

Yeah, they play differently. Mega Man, Proto Man, and Bass, if I remember correctly. Not too terribly different from each other, but enough where you can employ different strategies around the strengths/weaknesses of each character. I actually played the two arcade games that these games are ports of years ago, and it's amazing how well those games got ported into 8-bits without losing much of anything in the process.

Just finished The Wolf Among Us as well. Can agree with you on that it's not as emotional as The Walking Dead, but I thought that the story, twists and atmosphere was at a top level. But man, Telltale, they're on a roll. Particularly if you like that kind of gameplay.
