Games Played Report: September 2017

posted Sep 30, 2017, 11:00 AM by Bill Sannwald
The kids are back in school, and life seems to have sped up as a result. Some days I've felt like I've barely had a spare moment to sit and play games, but I powered through and carved out time for myself. I'm officially 75% of the way through the year with this project, and I'm excited for many of the amazing games being released in the next few months, not to mention the vast multitude of games from the past I can revisit, explore, and enjoy.

Here are some thoughts on this month's games:
  • Windjammers is a game I've always wanted to play but never had a chance -- I can see why it's a classic!
  • Big Bang Mini is delightful. I miss Arkedo's games -- what a great developer.
  • The art style in Nidhogg II is both beautiful and disgusting at the same time. I dig it!
  • Poor Karnaaj Rally had some of the worst box art ever, but it's a fantastic racer.
  • Cannon Spike is exactly the type of arcade experience that made the Dreamcast so great.
  • I played Samba de Amigo with my daughter and it was an absolute blast!
  • Revisiting the world of Shenmue made me feel nostalgic for a younger time in my life.
  • Playing Grim Joggers made me a little sad since I knew the iOS 11 update would make it obsolete.
  • Metroid: Samus Returns is vindication for MercurySteam after that not-so-hot 3DS Castlevania they developed.
  • "We need a new Goemon game!" was what I thought when playing Goemon's Great Adventure.
  • We Love Golf! is pure Camelot golf goodness, complete with fun motion controls.
  • China Warrior is basically a QTE game with huge sprites. I think it's kind of nifty.
  • Did anyone else buy Senko no Ronde 2? I'm glad G.Rev is still at it.
  • The original Mario Bros. has such fun, intriguing "momentum" for Mario and Luigi.
  • I feel like I need to go on a weekend retreat to a cabin in the woods and just play Golf Story uninterrupted.
  • Tank! Tank! Tank! = Secret Best Wii U Launch Title.
