Thanks so much for the kind words everyone. Spent a good chunk of yesterday at a Hospice with family and fortunately the family member that was admitted passed away last night and it wasn't a long drawn out situation like I anticipated. This was not a totally unexpected thing, just happened a bit sooner than we were hoping it would. Everyone seems to be coping well enough considering so we're already back to our regular routine again.

Because of that I thought I'd dust off the old light gun and remove some stress with a zapper title and some Rambo last night.

Rambo was decent enough. Starts very tough, but after you take down a boss or two your life meter gets a huge boost which makes the mid game more manageable and then there is a spike in challenge right near the end again. The game seems very confusing at first, but the maze like layout isn't actually as sprawling as it seems. Last boss fight took me a few tries, but eventually nailed it.



Barker Bill's Trick Shooting was my next game and I was sure I'd beaten it in the past, but for some reason I have no video and it's not crossed off my list so this was a revisit for me. There isn't much to do to beat it other than play most of the games. There is a mode called Fun Follies which has some mini-games you don't see until you get to certain rounds so I just made sure to play long enough to play each mini-game at least once. Quick and easy.



That puts me at 37 games in 19 days.

Completed Rockin' Kats. It's a decent platformer but a couple of the techniques are difficult to hit every time. There's spots where you're expected to use your glove weapon as a pogo stick, and when you need to hit it diagonally you only get it some of the time, and even if you do you may have moved your character slightly and you miss the ledge. Swinging is also difficult to get a handle of, but eventually you get used to the timing. Fortunately you make enough money in each level to buy 1ups.



Playing Star Force next.

Star Force done! There's definitely some bullet hell sections, but the difficulty is a bit random. One level you'll have very little problem, the next it's just non stop bullets. The end screen is just an ad for the next game, and then it rolls over.

Fester's Quest. I assume everyone's played this before. If not, it's Blaster Master without the vehicle exploration sections. If you play it, on the final boss move all the way up and to the right and fire your missiles. Complete blind spot.

Flintstones: The Surprise at Dinosaur Peak!. This was great until the last level, where you had to time every move exactly, and if you died you had to start from the beginning of the level. The final boss seemed to take fewer hits than it should have taken, but it was a welcome break after the stone wheel chase.

Beat Shadow of the Ninja. This is a really great game. I've never really liked the Ninja Gaiden games, as they had a number of very precise sequences that forced you to lose lives and restart the game before you advanced, so I was worried this game would be the same. The gameplay itself is very smooth, and it's a ton of fun to jump underneath ledges and hang from them to avoid enemies. The boss fights could take advantage of that a bit more, but otherwise it was a very enjoyable game.

Here's Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Super Off Road. Felt a lot like Danny Sullivan's Indy Heat. I didn't realize I had beaten it as far as our guidelines were concerned, as it doesn't say anything.

Nice work shane!!  I really like Shadow of the Ninja as well, it's fantastic!

I got back to playing again tonight and beat Fun House & Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum.

Funny thing is I actually beat Fun House twice!! For some reason my capture setup kicked out and missed the last 5 minutes of the game sooooo I did it again. It's a terrible game, but thankfully not super hard and has infinite continues. It feels like they took a silly mini-game and really stretched the hell out of that idea to charge for a full game price. Terrible controls are the worst part really. Not a lot of fun to be had here.



Dash Galaxy was a cool one for me as I rented it as a kid and couldn't get anywhere so this was kind of a "take that childhood" moment for me. Not a good game either, but it's got a clunky kind of charm to it and some neat ideas.



Also played a bunch of Dick Tracy and got the first 3 cases done and have a good handle of the 4th (died a few times attempting this one so far). Should be able to finish that off tonight if all goes well.

That puts me at 39 games in 22 days now.
