Games Played Report: April 2017

Post date: Apr 30, 2017 8:12:15 PM

A third of the year is down, and I've continued finding a new game to play every single day. I hope I can make it through the whole year! Each day brings something fresh and engaging, even if I may only spend a short time with an old favorite.

Some thoughts:

  • Super Mario 3D World's cat suit is maybe my favorite Mario power-up ever.
  • PiCTOBiTS has such a fantastic soundtrack.
  • Ninja Five-0 is an absolute gem.
  • Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance got a lot of criticism for its soundtrack, but I like it!
  • The "weight" of your character in Balloon Fight is perfect.
  • Let's Tap is way cooler than I remember it being. Very clever!
  • You can see a lot of the same style HAL used for Kirby in Trax.
  • Fatal Fury Special has bright, cheerful colors that I love.
  • Air Zonk is another game like Bonk's Revenge that makes me remember so much about high school. Memories!
  • Ganbare Neo Poke-kun is reason enough to own a Neo Geo Pocket Color.
  • Rhyme Rider Keroican is nowhere near as good as Vib-Ribbon, but it's still weird and interesting.
  • I miss when Sonic Team and Sega made wacky stuff like The Rub Rabbits!
  • Those spiders in Guwange creep me out.
  • My son is totally in love with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and that makes me happy!
