    Super Mario Run (Android)

    At first it seems like it should be a good, basic tier Mario game, but damn it is frustrating. Mario requires too precise of controls of controls to be played with one thumb.

    5/10.

    Shovel Knight
    Switch

    Man this is still a monster of a game. It's gotta be in my top 5 of 16-bit graphic games. It's one of the best games that was never on the SNES.

    SkywardCrowbar Just an FYI, but there is no "Android" category in this thread, merely a "Mobile" one.

    Um, isn't SK considered more psuedo 8 bit?

    @Karkashan: I will use "Mobile" for now on, thanks for the heads up.

    I beat a couple of games this week.

    Fast RMX (Nintendo Switch)

    A decently fun racer with gorgeous visuals and a great atmosphere. It suffers mightily from some of the most egregious rubber band AI I have ever encountered though.

    6/10.

    Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope (Nintendo Switch)

    Holy wow! An A+ game that is a stunner from beginning to end. So much creativity, so much fun. The controls are so tight that you never get mad at the game when you die.

    9.8/10.

    Super Bomberman R (Nintendo Switch)

    Clunky controls, boring characters and plot, mediocre visuals... Not a lot to recommend here at a price point of $50. As a $10 indie game, perhaps worth a shot.

    5/10.

    ARMS (Nintendo Switch)

    (Note: I completed the single player, offline. My overall thoughts on the game are still forming.)

    It plays better with the Pro Controller than with the Joy Con honestly, but either way, it is an absolute blast to play! Every character is fantastic, and it is ever so satisfying to feel a punch land.

    9/10.

    Beat Star Wars: Republic Commandos on PC. It was a very fun game with a great soundtrack and challenging gameplay.

    Finished the storyline mode in Just Cause 2 last night. Only at 47%, and due to the glitch during the one oil rig mission, I'll never be able to reach 100% completion (which I doubt I'll ever get to). I will however take over all military installations.

    Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia (3DS)

    Enjoyable and I appreciate a lot of the changes they made, such as the game being nearly fully voice-acted and the character designs. The game's story is typical Anime affair but so is pretty much every other Fire Emblem game and it gets the job done. But, good lord, is grinding in this game a pain. With most other Fire Emblem games I played and beat, I had to do far less grinding to have my characters level up to where I need/want them to be but, in this one, it just takes way too long. It's a fun game and a good change of pace for Fire Emblem but the grind needed to be handled better

    First you Get Hard, then you Walk Hard through the game, and shortly afterwards you Die Hard. It's quite the Hard Boiled life you live.

    Finished Salt and Sanctuary on the PC.

    Fairly good game, overall. Very Portrait of Ruin esque in some of the level design.

    Plague Knight

    And with that it concludes my beating of the Shovel Knight Tresure Trove on Switch.

    People if you haven't played this it's 3 complete and very different games in one. And it freakin rocks!

    After several years, especially since the IP owner's of it won't bother re-releasing it, I downloaded, and replayed No One Lives Forever myself without their consent...and it was glorious to replay one of my favorite games of my childhood.

    It felt good to see the credits roll once again. :mgrin:

    Finished the Defiant Honor DLC for Nioh on the PS4.

    Now to grind levels so I can get to the Very Very Hard difficulty mode and get the new type of loot.

    Devil May Cry 4 (PS4)

    Really want to play this, shame that Night Dive couldn't get the rights.
