Continuing the grand tradition of pointing out nifty games that can fall under the radar, here's an update of some great and/or lesser-known games I've been playing while my Beloved and our oldest are outside causing traffic to swerve with Pokemon Go.

Larry and Michael better watch out, lest they fall into the red abyss below!

I've mentioned before in other reviews, but I'm not really a sports fan.  I don't hate sports, but I'm just not invested in them.  I fancied myself more of a sports nut when I was a kid, and even had a few favorite athletes, including one basketball legend, Larry Bird.  I suspect it was because he was a less than movie star looks average dude who just brought skill to the table, and I'm sure my dad had a bit of influence in terms of probably commenting to me here or there that he was a talented player.  I never geeked out about stats or anything, just enjoyed the game as it was being played.  My fascination with basketball was relatively short-lived, unlike my enjoyment of baseball, and my still-burning love of college football (Go Huskers!).

Posted under Fighting, Offline, SinglePlayer

Let's face it. Fighting Games are becoming geared more and more towards people who play online, and to me, that's a problem. Don't get me wrong, if I'm playing with friends online, that's one thing, and not a bad thing at that, but when I'm forced to go up against random people who are likely cheating or do nothing else with they're time, it's just not fun anymore. So how do we remedy this? We go back to a time before things like Xbox Live or PSN existed (or when they were just coming into play).

Today, I'm here to talk about Fighting games with proper offline modes, or more specifically, Fighting games with a proper Arcade Mode. A proper Arcade Mode is defined by me as such:

-A mode where you battle CPU Opponents in succession, one after the other.
-Individual character endings.
-Difficulty selection.

That said, games like Street Fighter V and, sadly, Killer Instinct (2013) must be left out. While Killer Instinct's 1st Season does indeed have a proper Arcade Mode, it does not apply to every character in the roster, and therefore, I must leave it out. Don't get me wrong though, I still love the game. Let's begin!

Street Fighter II' - Champion Edition

I'll be honest. I have very mixed feelings on Street Fighter II. As it's many re-releases came about, it got harder, and it took every fiber of my being to beat the Hyper Version on MAME, and when I finally did it (using M. Bison, who is all I'm good with), the game basically presented me with a "Game Over" Screen, not even allowing me to enter my initials, all because I used him. That made me mad, so to say. The salt was real. That's where the Champion Edition on PC-Engine comes into play. Not only can I beat it without getting mad, but the Character Ending for M. Bison isn't just the game saying "Great job, you beat it with M. Bison, so you still lose". If your gonna play Street Fighter II, and you don't want to lose your temper, this version is the way to go.

SVC Chaos

This is another one I have mixed feelings on. I have always loved SNK and they're Fighting games, but this one is a bit different. Rather than being developed by Capcom, SNK made this one, and it shows. That's not a bad thing, but it does have a problem. While it does qualify as having a proper Arcade Mode according to what I said above, you only get a Character Ending if you beat one of the two secret final bosses, both of which are extremely difficult, and both of which you can't continue against if you lose. While I can beat one of them, SNK's Athena, I have never managed to defeat the other one, Capcom's Red Arremer, who I still consider to this day to be the hardest boss I have ever fought in a Fighting game. Complaints aside, I still like this game, even if some of the opponents are a bit too broken.

The King of Fighters 2006

The King of Fighters 2006 isn't the most beloved game in the series, and I fail to see why exactly. It's one of my favorite Fighting games, and I can't get enough of it. It's just plain fun! It's 3D, has English Voice acting, and the move inputs are still the same. Besides that, it carries on the traditional SNK Challenge, and that prevents it from being dull. It's worth it if you like Fighting games, but I'm unsure on how hard it may or may not be to find these days, as I haven't seen a copy in a long time.

These days, it seems like the best place to find Fighting games as I've described them is on Steam, which still feels a bit odd to me, but hey, a fight is a fight, and I'll keep fighting until my reflexes can't keep up anymore. FIGHT ON!

Posted under Collection, Missing games,

We've all had that moment. You're reviewing your collection, maybe cross-referencing your database with the games you just pulled from deep storage. Maybe you're taking inventory of games, you're packing up to store in the attic, or maybe you're looking for one game in particular you have an urge to play for the first time in years. All of a sudden, you discover that a game your collection list (and your own memory) says you own isn't where it's supposed to be. Perhaps it's the one you've been wanting to play, or maybe it's the one that should be sitting right next to the one you're looking for, but isn't. To any serious collector, this is a heart-stopping moment of confusion, panic, possibly even rage.

Posted under Trading, Collecting

Is there any better feeling for a collector than adding a new item to your collection? How about simultaneously adding a new item while helping a friend also get something they crave? Lately, I've seen the phrase "Trade is King" used quite often in game collecting groups. I really can't argue with it. Other than perhaps scoring a crazy good deal at a garage sale this is my favorite way to get new games these days. And honestly, it's a lot more likely to happen than a thrift store pick up nowadays.

Posted under Review, Resident Evil, Survival horror, Capcom, Action

Most everyone knows by now that I am a huge fan of the Resident Evil series, beginning with the first game some 20 years ago.  Once the flagship franchise of the survival-horror genre, the series has seen some massive shifts in direction over the last several years, much to the chagrin of longtime fans.  Although I have played and enjoyed every main entry in the series, even the oft-derided fifth and sixth entries, I agreed with the consensus that said Capcom should bring Resident Evil back to its horror roots instead of continuing with its newfound action-oriented direction.  So with the surprise announcement of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard at E3 2016, a new game in the series that promised to emphasize survival horror over blistering action, I must have been stoked out of my mind, right?

Well, not exactly.

The previous year, 2016, was one of my greatest when it came to finds I took home from the local thrift stores. While my actual game finds were few, far between, and not too exciting, the various accessories I found to improve the experience of actually playing the games more than made up for it. So, I will walk you through both my luck, my thoughts, and my process when it came to building a better battlestation. First, I will give the highlights of these finds before moving onto set up and other pieces you'll need.

Alright, Let's be real: being sick sucks. The silver lining is that you get to play all those sweet games that you wouldn't otherwise have time to play! Having been recently sick, I thought I'd go over some of my favorite sick gaming moments so that when you inevitably fall to a pH imbalance or broken bone, you have an Idea of where to start.

Posted under attack on titan, omega force, ps4

Although I have been an anime fan for a number of years, much like with gaming, I tend to not be on the cutting edge of what is new and popular. As such, I was extremely late to the party for the phenomenon known as Attack on Titan. The first season of the show began airing all the way back in 2013 and I did not dive in until this year. With that said, I am hooked, and perhaps fortunate as the second season began airing shortly after I finished catching up with the first season. The premise is simple. Humanoid giants known as Titans have killed off most humans and pushed them into isolation behind huge walls enclosing their city. Military squads do their best to fend the Titans off but the situation is always somewhere between bleak and dire. I will make it clear without reservations, I am enthralled with the Attack on Titan universe and characters. With that in mind, I was excited with high expectations for the video game adaptation, which I played through recently on the PlayStation 4.

Posted under Functional collecting, unplayed, unfinished, guilt

As long as I have been collecting games, I have always described myself as a "functional collector," meaning that I only picked up games I wanted to play.  With only a few exceptions I held true to this ethic, and I plowed dutifully through every game I bought, but slowly my collection began to get larger; so slow that I hardly noticed.  I began to long for a "video game" clean slate, longing for a day long past where I looked at upcoming games for something to play, not just something to add to the pile.  So, I set out to create a backlog list of some sort, then everything came tumbling down around me.

She just heard about her game's release window.

Most of us enjoy a good underdog tale and the existence of Nier: Automata certainly fits that description.  It was released alongside two other highly anticipated AAA open world action/exploration games (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon: Zero Dawn).  That alone would sound a death knell for most games.  In retrospect, it is amazing Automata has gained the attention it has.

While polished, with amazing character design, art direction, and a fantastic soundtrack, it was created on a developer-admitted small budget with noticeably last-gen graphics.  This is shared with the rest of the series, as Automata is an unexpected sequel to the cult-favorite series Nier, itself an offshoot of the Drakengard series.  And like its forefathers, there are a lot of reasons gamers may miss it.
