It's a new year, but you guys know the drill at this point: you give me your system list, you tell me when you've beaten a game, and I keep track of it. Oh and badges. I never dreamed those would've caught on like they did last year, so expect more of the same in 2021.

In addition to keeping track of the overall leaders in games beaten and systems covered, I'm going to keep track of the former on a monthly basis as well. That way if someone has a particularly prolific 30 day stretch, that number will be immortalized in a separate category and won't be buried under Renaissance2K for all eternity .

That'll do it for this portion and see below for what's actually important, the lists!

Ya..it almost killed the series.. the next part..fire emblem 12, new mystery of the emblem didnt come out outside of Japan because shadow dragon did poorly. Awakening was the last chance thankfully it blew up.

Shadow dragon is interestingly a remake of a remake. It'd a remake of fire emblem 3 book 1, a snes title which is a remake of fe1. Fe3 book 2 would be remade as new mystery but we didn't get it. You can get a translated rom though, but its not terribly good either compared to other games in ther series.

FFX is up near the top of the hill. It's so good. I can play it today still adore it. Still in my top 3 or 4 games of all time.

Haha yes it is. The first one we got in the west is 7. It's a prequel to 6. 4 and 5 go together..but 5 takes place in the middle of 4 and the beginning of the timeskip. 3 is a remake of 1 with some addition. 15 is a remake 2..which takes place in the world of 1 but a different continent. 13 is also in that world and you play as the descendants of Marth of caeda fighting against the descendants of alm and Celica. its wild.

Lol. They all have good translations you can play if you ever want to. The gem is FE4, genealogy of the holy War. It was the first one to do child units and stuff way back in like 96. If it had come here it might be talked about alongside the final fantasys and other great snes games. It's aged obviously and plays real slow. Three houses is heavily inspired by it.. there is even a character called the flame emperor and the characters have holy blood which inspired three houses crests. Also a timeskip

Oh ya.. 9 and 10 go together with 10 being the sequel this time as opposed to 6 and 7. Both are still so great. One of the best casts in the series.

There are some patches you can put on the roms for those which are great like global enemy range and other improvements. I do speed these up to like 130% they are a little slow especially fe9

#33 down: Super Mario 3-D World on Wii U. I enjoyed this a lot more than Super Mario Odyssey (which I beat before this). The gameplay was much more like old school Mario games but with 3-D platforming and some fun additions like the cat suit.

@Antipop I just tried out TMNT3 Radical Rescue on Game Boy and it's a good bit different vs. the first two GB releases. Not a fan of being forced to only use Mike as the Rescue part seemingly implies you're rescuing the other 3. Granted using Mike gives you a slow fall by 'helicoptering' your num-chuk. It is not linear and I only played for ~5 mins but I wasn't 100% sure where to go.

A dislike is that as soon as an enemy spawn point goes off screen, they can/will spawn anew if you return to that section. But I liked that when you pickup a full pizza it goes into your 'inventory' of which there seems to be 3 spots and you only consume it if you take enough damage to lose all of your health, so a full pizza is more useful. Some foes also drop a slice that I think restores 3 health, but you only have like 6-8 hits at least early on.

It does look a lot nicer and seems to play faster. I'll have to give it some more time.

Ending the LittleBigPlanet marathon menace, I completed LittleBigPlanet Karting for the PlayStation 3 last night.


You know a mascot has reached legendary status when it gets its own kart racer. I remember when the game was announced. It wasn't that people weren't excited about the game - it's a kart racer with a quirky aesthetic and an emphasis on creating and sharing content - but there was this overwhelming sense of "Okay... but why?"

The problem is Sony had already released ModNation Racers two years earlier. Big first-party backing from Sony? Check. Quirky aesthetic? Check. Emphasis on creating and sharing content? Check. I didn't get very deep into the game, but I remember it being a fun racer with more than a passing nod to Mario Kart and other bright, colorful mascot racers.

LittleBigPlanet Karting does all the same tricks that ModNation Racer did, but it doesn't do them as well. Though a couple of pre-made tracks go all-in on special effects and colors, the art style - and all its instances of "I just threw this together using cardboard and duct tape" simulacra - just looks drab and unfinished when you're speeding by it in a go-kart. Speed and acceleration feel inconsistent, as is the game's frame rate. And I swear that the game inherited some of the platforming games' stickiness when it comes to surfaces and edges. It just doesn't feel as good.

One of the key components of the LittleBigPlanet that never sat well with me is how your item collection - and, by extension, your ability to create compelling content - was directly tied to your platforming ability. If the piece you needed was gated by some tricky platforming segment or one that required cooperation from other players, you're going to compromise your vision. In contract, being a great racer in LittleBigPlanet Karting actually does the inverse: if you're a great racer that respects the racing line, looks for shortcuts, and optimizes opponent takedowns, you're likely going to encounter fewer prize packs that enhance your construction library. You'll probably get fewer points, too, but I couldn't tell you what good those do, especially now that the leaderboards are broken.

Speaking of those opponent takedowns... I've never been much of a hater of Mario Kart or its equalizing weapons, but so many of Karting's weapons just feel unfair. Half of them disintegrate your vehicle, which makes recovery take a really long time, and another half just feel useless unless the CPU racers are using them. You have the ability to defend yourself with nearly every pickup, but there just aren't enough of them to consistently keep yourself protected, and you're likely going to need to use them to close the unfair advantage the racer in front of you has accumulated. This is either brilliance in game balancing or just evenly distributing disappointment, but it left a bitter taste in my mouth in all events except for Battle Mode, which is actually quite a bit of fun.


With a little more than a week left in the month, I should be able to get a few hours in of Lunar and Final Fantasy XII, hopefully getting me closer to finishing those off. More likely than not, though, I'll be diving into next month's Games of the Month before the credits start rolling.

Gone on a tangent of shorter adventure/puzzle games lately, been wanting something more relaxed and easy going since work has been hectic. I'll get back to REAL game playing soon raspberry

Full Throttle Remastered Microsoft Xbox Series X|S - Never played the original, but this was pretty cool. Dug the music, writing was solid, and had some fantastic voice acting credits to its name. It's short and easy enough to grab all the achievements too if you're into that sort of thing.

Day of the Tentacle Remastered Microsoft Xbox Series X|S - Another one I never played the original. I played part of this with the sound off because of an achievement where you had to leave this one song running for the duration of the game. It got old fast. But it's another short one (3 hours or so) with easy achievements. Some genuinely funny moments scattered throughout.

What Remains of Edith Finch Microsoft Xbox Series X|S - Heard of this but never played it and I didn't expect to like it much, but I was surprised. There's some really cool gameplay mechanics hidden in the various stories you experience and some really sad tales connected to these experiences. It was very well done and I got absorbed more than I initially thought I would.

24th overall, 8th of March, 1st PlayStation 3 (is 14th platform)
Little Big Planet 2: Special Edition
Don't see how this doesn't fit under Hoppin' & Boppin' - sure there are some other aspects, but 75% or more is just a side-scrolling hop-bopping activity. That's 1 game towards that badge.

No different than Ren2k and a few others, I've endured this crap-fest 90% for Frank's GotM and 10% to get a clear on my PS3. This earns an easy 3/10 score from me. The controls are just rubbish, it's so floaty at times and you get stuck on ledges/edges way too easily. I skipped 90% of the 'story' as I really couldn't get into it, which felt weird since I never really skip story elements but I simply wanted to be done with it. Very little was a positive or 'pro' from me, didn't care for the music or much at all.
They did try to incorporate many different things into the title, but too often they felt essentially stolen from other games and not done as well since even the platforming was poor. I mean they throw in on-rails shooting, vertical and horizontal shump, top-down racing, heck even a straight from Mario Sunshine water backpack/hat thing. I get that they wanted to showcase how you, the consumer, who just paid potentially $60 really ought to build your own darn game with these great tools, but the servers are all dead so you can't access other levels or scores. Even so that concept never resonated with me.

I am glad that I can now cross it off of my list/backlog, so I do thank Frank for that as I got this title bundled with my PS3. There are 6 worlds with 7 levels each (save for the final's only 5) and you only have to beat 5 'main' levels to move the story along. I stuck to only beating the required 5 except for maybe 3-5 that I gave a go on early in the game. You do need to unlock the 2/world extra stages by finding keys in the core levels and I missed 1-2 of those. I do think that I might give the game another go and play the remaining 6+ side levels to feel more completed on the game. There are also some 2-player side levels that I won't bother with.

Another iOS game down: Device 6.

One of the best mobile games of all time. Uses the format to its fullest, if not beyond. It's a cross between puzzle game and interactive ebook, and it works so well. Simogo is one of the most underrated developers out there: both this and Sayonara Wild Hearts are masterpieces.

The Nintendo Wii U is done! It was great replaying New Super Luigi U for the first time since high school--2014! I didn't appreciate it as much as I should've back then, but I corrected that mistake now. NSLU is an excellent NSMB. It beats the Wii and Mario U versions at least. I'm a major supporter of the DS and 3DS ones.

It's refreshing having weird physics and a focus on difficulty this time around. It also reminded me that the Year of Luigi happened in 2013. Remember that? The year they released Luigi's Mansion 2, a Mario & Luigi RPG, and a bunch of Mario games that were turned Luigi-centric with little work? A cool idea, but it could've had a better execution. It resulted in fun games, at least.

What other Nintendo characters should have a year? Princess Zelda? Meta Knight? Diddy Kong? Slippy Toad?

I love both of these games. 2nd game is a good bit better than the first, in my opinion. A few more mechanics and ideas and a pretty good story told in the same style. You'll have to tell me how you rank it when you beat the 2nd one

A Link Between Worlds

I've been wanting to re-play this game for a long time, since I had only played it once, when it first released. But, I've also had this thing going for a very long time now where I was trying to re-play all of the 2D Zelda games in order, so I had to finish all of those first before I could play this one again. I started once several years back but only made it about halfway, through the Oracle games. By the time I was finally ready to get back to it, it had been so long that I decided to take it from the top again lol That was around 2017 or 2018. Anyway, I finally made it all the way through and was able to play A Link Between Worlds for a second time, and boy did it not disappoint! This game was such a great sequel to A Link to the Past. Things are similar enough to hit those ALttP nostalgia strings, yet it still feels like a brand new game. Even the overworld is changed up enough to keep things fresh. The wall merge was a great mechanic and they really made good use of it throughout the entire game. Part of me didn't like how you just buy most of the items, instead of getting them in dungeons. But, I did like how each dungeon was focused primarily around one item, and that item was utilized right from the start, not AFTER you finally find it in the dungeon. The mini-games were great, probably the best of any 2D Zelda game. I also really liked how you could upgrade most of the major items. Finally, I really liked collecting the Maiamais.

Now for a few cons...I really didn't care for the non-linear dungeon order overall. I did like the one benefit of them I mentioned previously, but aside from that, I prefer more of a set order for completing the dungeons. Part of this is so that the difficulty can ramp up as you progress, but with the way they did it in this game, the dungeons all had to be about equal difficulty, so that you could tackle them at any time. Another thing I didn't care for is how you basically just do dungeon after dungeon once you reach the dark world, just like in A Link to the Past. I prefer how most of the other 2D Zelda games flow, where in between each dungeon there's some kind of task or sidequest you have to complete that develops the story and/or opens up access to the next dungeon.

The cons really didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of this game, they're more how I prefer Zelda games to be setup. This is easily a 10/10 game for me. I'm planning to do an updated Zelda ranking soon, it's going to be tough to decide where this one goes. It's definitely in my top 3 though, along with Link's Awakening and A Link to the Past.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (Hard mode, solo)

Beating this game on Hard mode, solo, has been something I've wanted to do for a very long time. I remember trying it a few times as a kid but could never make it further than Starbase, usually dying at the Krang fight. It's been on my to-do list, but I never made time for it. It was so satisfying to finally complete it! This game actually does a good job of increasing the difficulty from Normal to Hard. There are more enemies throughout the levels (and more of the more difficult enemies), plus the bosses have more difficult attack patterns. There also seemed to be less pizzas throughout the levels, and enemies seemed to deal more damage, but it's been a little while since the last time I played on Normal so I can't say for sure. I didn't think Slash could be any more annoying, but somehow he is on Hard mode. Also, the Shredder fight is ridiculous! He moves so fast, the window to actually get a hit in on him is almost non-existent. Plus his green attack is so brutal (insta-death) and has way too large of a hit window.


Bowser's Fury

I was a little thrown off by this one at first, but I quickly got into it and enjoyed it a ton. It did feel a bit like a mix between Super Mario 3D World and Super Mario Odyssey, but more SM3DW. I liked how they incorporated so many different types of platforming into the game, it constantly felt like I was doing something new. I also liked having access to so many power-ups. Using Plessie as a way to travel between the different areas was smart. It was fun getting to ride him/her around so much , instead of just a couple levels here and there.

I would have liked to see more of an increase in difficulty, but it was a pretty short game. My only major complaint about the game is that Bowser pops up too much. It's really annoying to be working toward a Cat Shine just for him to pop up and ruin your day, forcing you to start over after you spend several minutes getting rid of him. They should have at least toned it down after you beat him the final time, and let you focus just on collecting the rest of the Cat Shines. Although, you do need him for some of them. They could have made a spot where you just swim up to him and that awakens him.

Overall, I really enjoyed the game. It was fun to try out a new formula. I still can't decide if I would like an entire full-length Mario game in this style, but I'd definitely be willing to try it!

I have now beaten Castlevania III on Nintendo Switch and Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash on original Nintendo 3DS (not Nintendo New 3DS). I've gotta say, the latter is unfairly hated. Most people looked at it and weren't interested, some played the first world and stopped before it got good, and others watched Scott The Woz nitpick it for 40 minutes on YouTube. I will live and die by my stance that you shouldn't judge a platformer by its first world--it's usually easy, uninspired, and tutorial-heavy, with the interesting stages starting in world 2. If you can see Zip Lash through to the second world, the level design picks up quite pleasantly. It's nowhere near as bad as its reputation would suggest.

Castlevania III is challenging or something.

Another puzzle game, already have badge

After knocking out 6 phone games around the end of January, I wasn't planning on really playing another possibly all year. Then @Frank posted about a few free games in the Hot Deals thread and I grabbed a few and was bored for a spell yesterday and tried this one out.
It only has 117 levels and some are real simple tutorial ones as new things get added to the mix. But a few were more challenging and I enjoyed playing and beating it.

Batman Returns
First towards the Quest for Peace badge

This one is pretty simple and short at only 5 stages, but with 2 paths/stage. I only did one run so far but credits are rolling so it's completed. With as short as it was I'm looking to replay it and take path 2 each time as I took path 1 this run. I think you can pick from 2 weapons too, so if that's true I'll use the other - I forget as I was messing around with some different Batman games a few weeks ago and only decided to continue this one tonight. Game was fairly decent as a basic side-scrolling beat-em-up with Batman traits. I might see about playing more of that era's Batman games.

Just beat Castlevania on Nintendo Switch. Beating Castlevania III and I in one day? And in the same year as Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels? Give me some credit: I have a ton of patience and too much spare time!

I did the same a couple of years ago. I beat them all except Kid Dracula. Couldn't get past level 7 in that one.

Metal Slug
Figure this would have counted towards Pile Drivin' that I already have.

Been on a little bit of a role the last few days, granted the 3 most recent completions have been smaller/shorter in nature. I noticed that my oldest consoles were starting to get completed so I wanted to sort of focus on the older gaps and this completes all of my consoles up to the Saturn, based on Anitpop ordering them by oldest to newest. I also was interested in beating at least 1 game on all of my mini consoles since I have 5 and was otherwise playing my older consoles via emulation on PC with an X1 controller. Figured it's more accurate and fitting for me to play at least something on those 5 consoles. I also beat Metal Slug 2 last year so I figured going for the original this time around was wise. I've got 3 on that mini system so I might beat it eventually as well.

Game was fun and beats up your thumbs mashing the fire button a lot. I used save states to avoid taking damage and thus beat it on 1 life (I think...) and saved likely 85+% of the POWs. I recall playing different releases of this a few times but really only doing the first level, so I went through level 1 with ease. I was only using save states early on at the end of levels b/c I was doing alright, but by the 3rd level I was starting to use them more b/c I was making mistakes and taking damage with unfamiliar waves of enemies and such vs. it being challenging. Finally by the mid-4th stage I was using them to retain progress as I died a good bit in those final 2 levels. The final boss sucked until I realized that I'm pretty sure I needed to hit him vs. just his chopper and getting some 'nades caused me to change my strategy and then I took him out a lot quicker on that final attempt.

Puts me into the lead for platforms covered, nice.

#32 The Pathless PlayStation 5 such an awesome game. Reminded me of a cross between Zelda Breath of the Wild and Shadow of the Colossus.
