Games Played Report: November 2017

posted Nov 30, 2017, 8:08 AM by Bill Sannwald
November flew by. Wow. How has this year gone so quickly? It's important to find some time to "pause" and enjoy life. Playing video games every day does just that, and it provides me with a few moments of happiness. 

For whatever reason, I struggled a little this year with the idea of being so into games despite being in my 40s, but I've accepted and embraced it. Who cares? If I'm playing games for the rest of my life, I'll be happy. Now, on to December!

Here are some thoughts about this month's games:
  • Million Onion Hotel is such an oddity, and the only iOS game I can think of that has (cute pixel) sex in it...?
  • Woah Dave! is a great take on classic Mario Bros.-style action
  • I think it's great that every Gungrave stage starts with "Kick Their Ass!"
  • Sonic Forces... ah, the Sonic Cycle continues...
  • Super Beat Sports is a killer rhythm game with cute visuals and catchy tunes. Check it out!
  • I'm glad I bought Saturn games like Soukygurentai years ago when they were just expensive versus SUPER expensive
  • Ghost Squad is a very perfect light gun game!
  • Remember when everyone was excited Rockstar made an XBox game and it was just Table Tennis?
  • Tiny Wings is joy.
  • I was initially disappointed Animal Crossing Pocket Camp didn't have much to "do" in it, but it's still fun.
  • I could play Crazy Taxi every day of my life and be happy. Gotta have Offspring and Bad Religion tunes, though.
  • Wow, I didn't expect River City Rival Showdown to be so awesome. Quite a delightful surprise!
  • I scored a Saturn arcade stick at my local Book Off this month, and TwinBee Yahho! was so nice to play with a stick!
  • Threes is pure puzzle bliss.
  • Mario Pinball Land is not really a pinball game, and it doesn't quite work, but it's still a neat oddity.
  • The Wonderful 101 should have sold Wii U systems. It's incredible.
