Games Played Report: January 2017

I am keeping track of games I play in 2017, with the goal of not only playing a game every day, but trying to play a unique game each day as well. That's not to say I can't play the same game on multiple games, but I'm trying to throw in something else as well. It's been a fun project so far!

Some notes:
  • Shinobi on 3DS is way better than I expected it to be.
  • Wild Guns Reloaded is hard -- my skills have atrophied over the years.
  • Gradius V makes me with Treasure and G.Rev would make Gradius VI.
  • God Hand is so ridiculous... in a wonderful way.
  • The core mechanics of Fruit Ninja still feel so satisfying all these years later.
  • OutRun 2 is buttery smooth.
  • Steel Diver with the 3D at full blast is like looking into an aquarium.
  • Sin & Punishment Star Successor is perfect for Wii motion controls.
  • Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is absolutely beautiful.
  • I like all the bizarre enemies in Super Mario Land.
  • Revenge of the Gator's music has been in my head since it was released.
  • The Last Blade has some of the best atmosphere in any game I've ever played.
  • Soldier Blade's soundtrack and aesthetics are everything I want in a vertical shooter.
