In previous years, I got a game called 'Dungeon of the Endless' which is a Tower Defense rogue like game. They have a whole franchise on the 'Endless' aspect of it and have made a few other games. For the last day of the steam sale, I got Endless Legend, which is a 4X game like Civ. I also picked up Endless Space, which is kind of like Stellaris as far as I can tell. I got it for free, though.

Also started playing Dungeon of the Endless again because that game really is my jam. It's a lot of fun.

 

I haven't played Endless Space yet. But Endless Legend is petty good. It isn't the best 4X game out there, but still worth the time. I still need to get around on trying out Dungeon of the Endless.

I'm currently dying from too many games but that's because I'm 100% against buying used games, so I always buy day one   PS3: Dragon's Crown, Ducktales Remastered, Hatsune Miku Project DIVA F, Kille

Spyro 3’s progress has been the slowest of the three games for sure. I’ve reached Evening Lake (the third hub world) and have completed Bentley’s level. Man, I don’t remember if he was like this in th

So, a week or two ago All of the Lego Harry Potter games were on sale on the eShop. My fiancé, who is a total non-gamer, is a Harry Potter geek. 
 

I bought the games in hopes she would eventually try them out. Yesterday we fired them up and enjoyed about 90 minutes together. It was great. 
 

I’m not a huge fan of the style of the games but it was nice to share the Hobby with her. 
 

Hopefully we will get to play a little more next weekend.

Been playing plenty of Animal Crossing New Horizons. I think I’m finally at the point I can start making my island look more and more like Estard Island from Dragon Quest 7.

Also been messing around with the Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection. It’s been on sale for 50% off for about a week so I picked it up. I’ve never really dabbled in this SNK fighting series since I’m more of a King of Fighters man, but it’s been fun playing the collection. Love the character designs and gameplay, there’s a huge library of artwork and design documents you can look through, and history and developer comments for the series. Haven’t tried playing online yet, but I’m really liking what’s available game wise and extra wise. Always wanted to give the series a real shot and I’m enjoying it.

I’ve enjoyed Samurai Shodown 2 much more than Samurai Shodown 1. 1st game definitely feels like a clunky early 90s fighting game and doesn’t feel very rewarding to play, but SS2 feels much smoother and much better gameplay wise. Earthquake and Charlotte have been my favorite characters to play as so far.

Better buy all the SNK games you can before a Saudi prince owns the company!

I’ve heard about that rumor. We’ll see what ends up happening.

Is this an ET thing? Is he going to track down all copies and bury them in a New Mexico landfill?

It’s a “the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia owns a company that intends to buy a majority stake in SNK” thing.

SNK has been bought in the past by larger companies and it never affected their business for the most part. If the rumors end up being true I’m guessing SNK games will still be available on various platforms and they will be able to continue future releases.

But speaking of SNK, I decided to play some Metal Slug X tonight. Bought the game awhile ago when it was on sale and man, I forgot how nuts these games could get. It’s a run and gun arcade game that just gets so over the top. Great character/sprite animations, the sudden appearance of MARS MARTIANS! who appear alongside the normal enemies, and the big final battle against the Mothership you fight with the help of the enemy forces is so good.

Good times playing Metal Slug, man. There arcade games can get pretty hard but they are so much fun.

Picked up the Castlevania Anniversary Collection since it was on sale for $5, and I can now day I’ve finally beaten the original Castlevania! I remember trying again and again to beat the game in my Wii via the Virtual Console release, but I had absolutely no luck once I got to area 4. I finally did it! Definitely was difficult, but since I’ve been stuck at home it gave me the chance to learn the later levels and win! Holy Water is your best friend in the original.

Felt good to finally beat the game. I’m not a diehard Castlevania fan or anything, but I’ve always known and admired the series for as long as I can remember. It’s one that’s always stuck out in my mind thanks to being talked about so highly in stuff like Nintendo Power back in the day, and seeing various games get coverage before...well, Konami became too much like Konami. I’m looking forward to playing the other games in the collection, and maybe this will lead me to checking out some of the Metroidvania styled games too.

Holy water is busted. I love it. The original Castlevania game definitely ranks in my top games. The Metroidvania-style Castlevanias are fun, no doubt, but there's something in the original Castlevania's gameplay that's just satisfying.

My favorite on the NES and SNES is Simon's Quest. The RPG elements, like leveling up, and the free roam were what I loved about it. When I visited my cousin, we set aside his new PS2 for a few hours to play FF1 and Simon's Quest on the old NES.

The only Castlevania game I've beaten so far is Portrait of Ruin. I probably need to step up my game on this series 😂

That was my favorite too and the only one I ever beat.

I'm trying to finish up The Outer Worlds.

Not sure what I'll work on after that. Maybe go back to DQX.
