ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
1) Secret of Monkey Island (ScummVM/Switch - I think it was the PC version)
Still lovely, and I still remember how to complete it. The music didn't sound as good as I remember (this might be a PC/Amiga thing, or maybe it just wasn't setup right, but the Switch kept crashing when I went into the settings).
Already started Monkey Island 2 and I don't have a clue what I'm doing, but I'm blundering through ok at the moment.
2) Monkey Island 2
Got there in the end. The first version I played kept crashing on Phatt Island, so I had to start again. It didn't seem as difficult as I remember it, but I guess that just meant most of the solutions were still in my head somewhere. The few times I did get stuck, I knew what I was meant to do, just couldn't remember how to do it.
All ready for the proper sequel now...

3) Yakuza Kiwami PS4/5
After many aborted attempts to get through this since it first came out on the PS2, I finally made it all the way through. Unfortunately, I was playing it over such a long period of time, I usually had absolutely no idea who anybody was or what was going on. Fortunately, Yakuza 2 features a nice recap at the start of the game, which I probably would have rewatched before finishing this one if I'd known about it (although I guess it would have spoiled the ending, so maybe not). Anyway, it's still the spiritual successor to Shenmue, and I felt compelled to do far too many side stories for very little gain, but I'll try to finish the second (and subsequent) ones in a bit of a shorter time frame

4) Super Mario Bros - Super Mario All-Stars - SNES/Switch
Not sure why I played the SNES version rather than the original (although when I moved onto 2 on the NES, I couldn't deal with the button layout, so maybe it was a blessing). Anyway, I must have finished this loads of times, but always with gratuitous use of warp zones, so this time I went through each level (and made gratuitous use of the rewind feature), and also the "harder version" (was that on the NES, I seem to remember you getting a level selection when you finished it).

Anyway, onto the lost levels.

5) Super Mario Bros - The Lost Levels - Super Mario All-Stars SNES/Switch
Well. It's like Super Mario Bros, but designed by someone that hates you. I cannot begin to fathom how you might play it without rewinding every few seconds (or sometimes rewinding entire levels, because you've run out of time getting lost), as the game likes to throw pixel perfect jumps at you, or jumps that you can't quite make, and have to approach in a different way. It's not Rick Dangerous-esque in how it tries to kill you, because you can always see what's coming, however it does throw pretty much everything it possibly can at you without cheating.
There was one part I couldn't work out how to get past without getting hit, and I eventually found a YouTube video of someone getting past successfully, but it was never something I'd have worked out how to do.

6) Super Mario Bros 2- Super Mario All-Stars SNES/Switch
Tedious shite.

7) Super Mario Bros 3 - Super Mario All-Stars SNES/Switch
This is more like it. Not really sure how I missed out on this one when I was younger. We definitely owned it, but I must have been too busy playing on my Megadrive, which is a shame as I really enjoyed Super Mario World a few years later, and this feels like a real stepping stone towards that game.
Not sure what to play next now...


8) Curse of Monkey Island
It has its moments, but it's not a patch on the first two. I did most of it with a walkthrough, because it felt like a slog to go round and talk to everyone, rather than, you know, fun.
There's something comforting about FMV from that era though.

20. Salt and Sacrifice [PS5]

This is the sequel to the excellent soulslike 2D platformer Salt and Sactuary, and it's really good. It's not as good, because the level design has got more complicated and sprawling, with bits being unlocked as you discover new "inquisitor tools" that let you access previously locked areas or kill of a certain number of bosses. The problem with this is that the levels are big and you have to remember where it was you couldn't get to.

Still, the fighting is fun, the story is appropriately stupid, and it looks great.

13. Far Cry 6 - (PS5)

Very similar to FC4, but a different lead and an island instead of India, you get a choice of a male or female char 'Dani'.

Quote:
The story of Far Cry 6 takes place on the island of Yara. Gabriel Castillo is elected president and promises stability with the creation of a new cancer treatment drug called “Viviro.” Seven years later and workers are enslaved to work on the tobacco fields and the country’s armed forces (known as the FND) begin rounding up citizens in the capital of Esperanza.

In the wake of this, Dani Rojas, who lives in the middle of Esperanza, plans to escape to Miami. Unfortunately things go awry and Dani finds herself in a desperate struggle to topple Castillo, uniting with the anti-Castillo forces under the flag of Libertad. In order to take back control, it’s up to Dani to recruit several different factions to join her cause and strike back against this maniacal war criminal.


I don't think it is too ground breaking, but I enjoyed my time playing it.

16) Injustice 2 (PS)

It’s a highly polished fighter that’s based on the DC Universe. I’ll be honest, I played the entire story cause it’s fucking hilarious. DC characters are the fucking worst. Yeah, Batman and Superman are alright. Who else? Fucking Captain Cold? Who’s basically Mr Freeze but shitter? Who they all call “Snart”!? That’s his fucking name. Who else? Blue fucking Beatle? Fucking Firestorm? All I could hear was Darude when he was on screen just looking crap. And what’s the big bad villains name? BRAINIAC!? Brilliant.

Thankfully the main reason to keep playing are the super moves, basically to see them all once cause they’re so over the top and last for minutes at a time as your opponents life bar just halves each time. Essentially they’re fatalities but during the game. And don’t always end a match. And sometimes you can do them twice in a match and have to sit and watch them all over again and again. Actually after the first time they’re pretty fucking annoying.

Anyway, DC, no wonder your films are bollocks with this shitshow cast. The game was alright.

16) Escape from school (PC)

Bad,buggy escape rooms.

and just now...

17) The case of the golden idol (PC)

Obra dinn esque mystery where stills of the story are given to you and you have to work out whats going on. art isn't as good, nor the music, and its not quite as clever, but still fun enough in its own way

Nailed the campaign, which doesn't take too long. Considering it's a management sim that uses tiny blobs as characters, it kicks you surprisingly hard in the feels. I quite like it, although the UI is showing its age. You've probably got it free from Epic.

I finished this a while ago, but obviously just forgot to post about it. Anyway, it's a delightful homage to the original, without just being a safe remake. It's funny, it's sad, it's clever. And once I finished it, I started playing it again (although I did kind of give up and play something else).

10) Valiant Hearts - rpcs3/Steam Deck
I played this ages ago, but it's one of those games that I just stopped playing one day and never went back to (they are numerous, and I'd like to tick more off).
It's more an interactive educational story set in the first world war. The few times I did get stuck, I found the hint system a bit annoying because it just has a set series of hints for certain points in the game, so if you get stuck, it will just give you the first hint for that bit, even though you might have already done that, then it makes you wait 60 seconds before you can have another hint. Which is fair enough, but a bit frustrating if the first hint was worthless.

This is probably the most games I've completed in ages, but I've left it a bit late to make it to 52.

It’s Doom! But modern! With a quad-shotgun! And a plasma rifle that doesn’t suck dick!

Basically, it’s fucking great.

Only problem I had was that it had a checkpoint system with, essentially, infinite lives. I played it on ultra hard (you should see those dogs fucking charge at you!), coop (oh yeah, it’s coop an’ all), and could bulldoze through some difficult sections. I’d have preferred lives perhaps (maybe a shared lives system for coop) but honestly my only complaint is that just meant I’ve finished it sooner than I would have. Now there’s no more Prodeus. Boo!

It’s got multiplayer too but I’ll be damned if I could find a game. Boo!

And community maps too! So maybe I’ll dip in and see if they’re not a bag of shit.

Rogue-like 2D shooter that’s pretty good fun. I’ve done the 3 main bosses and I think I’m done with it. There’s optional side bosses or some shit but they all require some obtuse mechanism to unlock a coin or something. I did a couple of runs and basically just ended up killing the main boss twice over cause I hadn’t shot the shop door 4 times or some bollocks. Other than that I enjoyed my time with it. Lord knows why they couldn’t just shove the other bosses in with the rest without that annoying secret bollocks.

Now I’m playing Tunic and it’s gotten reet good so that’s getting clocked next.

Good luck with Tunic, I had to turn on god mode about 2/3rds in! Fantastic game though.

19) Aliens (Mame)
20) Aliens v Predator (Mame)

No way was I getting anywhere near a 1CC run so I just brute forced my way to the end after a while (in both games).

Aliens was surprisingly a bit shit despite a massive amount of nostalgia I have for it. AvP fared much better but I was really missing doing it coop. Lonely beat em ups aren’t a lot of fun. Still what the fuck is that female character doing in it? She’s dreadful to play as: weak damage and weak energy. The military bloke wasn’t much cop either.

I've been playing Aliens on MAME forever... And I've only just found out that you can fire rockets in the inbetween cart type levels.

There was only one choice when I was doing a test build of my arcade cab back in 2020.
