freebie "RULES" freebie

1. Have fun
2. Beat games - proof NOT required via an image, but lying is lame and you won't 'win' anything for beating the most games
3. IF you are interested in badges, when you beat a game for 1, include something like 'Counts towards badge X' OR 'Earns me badge X, first game was Y'
4. IF you don't care about badges, then I will not be handing them out
5. No monthly leaderboards will exist in '22, I will post in the thread maybe around mid month and after month's end the top 5 or so participants
6. DLC generally doesn't count towards badges and any 1 game can only count towards a single badge
Rule addendum: Going forward (after July 15th), badges for anyone who cares, will only be credited for beating 2 completely unique titles.
Rule addendum: If you beat a title multiple times on different consoles then it needs to be <air-quote> LONGER </air-quote> in nature and not a fighting game or overall short title for me to list it for multiple consoles. It also could only count as 1 title for a badge, per the prior addendum listed above.

Another one bites the dust. Short, sweet and to the point. How I like it when I'm speed running! This one def aged though in regards to graphics but the performance is better than Ascension at 60fps at 1080p in the remaster here. And you can definitely tell it was originally a PSP game first at its simplistic design and limited number of enemies on screen at once and lack of voice acting outside of CGI cutscenes. I also enjoyed the tale about Kratos' daughter and Persephone and showcasing just the beginning of Kratos' descent into madness. Next stop, the OG, God of War 2005.

I beat Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 Nintendo Wii U (originally GBA).
[imgt]https://i.imgur.com/IC32TQZ_d.webp?maxwidth=640&sh...[/imgt]

Here's some Nintendo fan heresy: I don't like Super Mario Bros. 3. It's a fairly punishing game with a good bit of trial and error gameplay and a lot of annoying mechanics that newer Mario games have mostly abandoned--things like the mushrooms moving left or right based on the direction from which you hit the block, stages completely lacking checkpoints, being taken back several map spaces when you fail a stage, a heavier emphasis on those obnoxious note blocks, and so on. But this isn't supposed to be a rant, because thanks to Warp Whistles, beating the story mode was only a tiny fraction of my experience.

The real reason I booted this up was to play the 38 e-Reader levels that come bundled with the Wii U version. These stages were super novel and often challenging, and because they were made in 2003, they tend to avoid the more antiquated elements I mentioned. Some of them pull elements from SMB2, World, and even Yoshi's Island to make some truly unique stages. They felt like Super Mario Maker before Super Mario Maker! Seeing SMB3 Mario plucking turnips and flying with the Cape Feather was really cool, as was bouncing off Bumpties and running up walls. I reached an area in one stage that made me think I was about to fight Wart, and though he sadly wasn't there, it's telling that they were able to capture my imagination enough to think that was a possibility!

I beat each e-Reader stage as both Mario and Luigi, and nabbed all the Advance Coins and e-Coins. Tricky but satisfying! I highly recommend this for $8 if you have a Wii U. The e-Reader stages are worth the price on their own, and you get SMB3 (grumble) and a remake of Mario Bros. too. Or you can go on eBay and buy all the e-Reader cards and an e-Reader peripheral separately, if breaking the bank is more your style.

Counter points:
I like that you can choose the direction of your shroom. Also as you get further into the game, you should have enough powerups in your stash that you rarely if ever need to enter a stage as shrinkydink Mario, so mushroom movement shouldn't be a huge deal.

I don't know what you mean by trial and error gameplay. Unless you are talking about the cryptic ways of unlocking a white Toad house or a treasure ship, or the bonus card matching minigame... or is it having too much freedom to fly around and then not know where you are going to land?

If you want punishing play lost levels.

Actually there was one thing I found annoying as a kid... in two player mode when the other player can steal your turn by challenging you to that Mario Bros style minigame if you enter the same space they are on.

#62 down: Band of Bugs on Xbox 360. That takes care of my 360 clear. One more system (PS2) to go. Since I needed a 360 clear, I literally just picked a game at random from my backlog, and it ended up being this. This was an unexpected surprise. Your mileage may vary depending on whether or not you like tactics games, but I love them, so this was right up my alley. This is not really a game you play for the graphics (passable but clearly dated) or the story (fine but mostly just kill the bad bugs with your team of good bugs and a human who everyone thinks is a kind of bug). The gameplay, however, is quite fun. I had to repeat a few levels because I made a mistake or took too many risks, but most of them aren't particularly hard once you get a good handle on what each bug can do. When you beat a level, your bugs level up and automatically get new abilities and better stats (but you don't assign any of this, so there's no customization at all, which is a bummer). Still, there are fun moments with new skills (like when you first get inferno), and I found myself with a lot of opportunities to get creative as the levels threw new challenges at me. Some of the level design (while similar aesthetically) incorporates interesting gameplay ideas (varied levels of elevation, parts of the map that collapse beneath you, poison pods bugs can run into, tangled weeds, spiderwebs, etc.). Given how the levels are divided, this is a fun one to pick up and play for a bit at a time.

I have a duo of games that I finished up on the way to collecting G-roll for a new video, starting with Gradius III for the Super Nintendo.


One of my friends in middle school and high school had a dusty Super Nintendo sequestered in their basement. He didn't use it all that often, but being the budding gamer that I was, I made sure the little gray box got some exercise whenever I visited. His collection differed quite a bit from the collections of my other friends, one such example being his copy of Gradius III. It made enough of an impression that, when I finally picked up a Wii in 2007 and started exploring the Virtual Console, Gradius III ended up being my first such purchase. With a lot of Nintendo staples available on its portable platforms, the long-forgotten horizontal shooter seemed like the perfect choice.

There's a lot that I adore about Gradius III. For starts, the soundtrack - the big impetus to this year's playthrough - is an absolute banger, with its first few level tracks being standouts. I love how the enemy and boss designs merge organic Akira-style monstrosities and futuristic spaceship aesthetics. I love the way the game lets you pick a loadout, instead of just giving you a rotation of guns that grow progressively bigger as you accumulate power-ups. And, along those same lines, I friggin' love the Ripple gun. I don't even care if it's not the optimal choice (according to the Interwebs, the Twin Laser actually gets that distinction), but it's the perfect space weapon.

I was never very good at the game. Even with the Wii re-release, I had a hard time fully unlocking my loadout. By swallowing my pride and setting the difficulty to Easy, though, that happened a little more often this time around, especially in the later levels that seem to throw orange orbs at you. I also figured out fairly quickly that avoiding the orbs once you have your shield upgrade highlighted is great for a quick recharge when your defenses go down. The game's slowdown is actually a lot worse than I remember and not isolated to a few setpieces like some retro gaming pundits imply, but - and I'm slightly ashamed of this - I grew to appreciate it in the later, more chaotic levels where holding down the Fire button functions effectively as a "brake" when the heat goes up.

Following Gradius, I played through - and this is a mouthful - Rockman Complete Works 2: Dr. Wily No Nazo for the PlayStation.


For the uninitiated, Capcom released enhanced versions of the first six Mega Man games for the PlayStation in Japan. Later on, some of them made cameo appearances as PSOne Imports for the PSP and PlayStation, which is how I discovered them. I won't go into too much detail about my love for Mega Man 2 - I played through the Genesis version as part of my 2020 year of replays and consider it and its extraordinary 8-bit soundtrack as all-time faves - but this was a release I've been itching to dive into for a long time.

The Complete Works games look like straight-up ports of the Nintendo releases at first glance, but Capcom added a whole ton of enhancements and quality of life features that take advantage of the hardware without messing too much with the gameplay. There's a new HUD with 16-bit style graphics, hazard indicators, and tips as you play through each of the levels. There's Memory Card support that negates the need to take down pictoral passwords, and even a Pocketstation (!) app that lets you level up both Mega Man (or Rock, I guess, since this is a Japanese game) and his opponents. You can optionally turn on rapid fire, which makes huge difference even with the three bullet limit, and Dual Shock rumble.

But for me, the greatest feature in this "Special Edition" release is the soundtrack. While it's not a complete replacement, roughly half the tracks in the game were swapped out with CD quality re-arrangements. Standouts are the excellent Bubble Man remix, as well as the new version of Wily Stage 1, both of which turn already awesome songs into incredible modern tracks.

Wood Man's theme, however, remains untouched. Oh well. I guess you can't mess with perfection.

The Gunk
I'm counting this towards Sasori Vader since we expanded that to any space-themed title and this fits

I heard this might leave GP before the end of the year and after learning it wasn't too long I decided to give it a shot... and it was alright. It didn't overstay it's welcome, so that was a plus. The world was pretty and the music was pretty good. But they left so much on the table. The core suck up the gunk mechanic was solid and could've benefitted from more things to do, more variety to it. But really there were 3 enemies, that were generally cake to deal with, I didn't die at all in the game. The story was predictable and the banter btwn the main protagonist and her partner was lame and pointlessly dramatic at times.
But at 6 or so hours, it was close to a walking-sim level of 3rd person mild puzzler/platformer set on an alien planet, you could get upgrades as well, but I'll be darned if I noticed them nor used any of the additional deployable stuff. Again I think they could have made this a good deal more impressive with only a few tweaks and less dialog driven drama. But in the end it wasn't a waste of time.

Currently working on The Chant and the new Saints Row. The Chant is awesome so far - gonna jump back into it tonight - and Saints Row is...not as bad as I thought it'd be.

Sorry, @Scott , but I liked The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages Nintendo 3DS better.
[imgt]https://i.imgur.com/9pquYPd_d.webp?maxwidth=640&sh...[/imgt]

I don't know if it's a Linked Game thing, but OoA has way more character and story than OoS. They found a way to differentiate the time travel from Ocarina of Time by having you travel hundreds of years, so you meet characters' ancestors and explore a geographically different land. In some cases, you cause bootstrap paradoxes, where Link in the past was the originator of something that he was seeking in the present. They even fixed the problem with warping in ALttP: Not only are there way more warp panels spread across Labrynna, but you get an upgrade later that lets you ignore the obnoxious patch of sparkles.

Onox in OoS was a generic villain with no real presence in the game; Veran is a malevolent trickster who possesses people and casts spells, making her way more interesting. The focus on puzzles over battle results in really satisfying brain teasers, especially on Crescent Island and Zora's Domain. Some of the bosses are hit or miss, like the first one being pretty gimmicky, but others are good. The Great Moblin was much funnier in OoS as well, as his role is diminished here.

I strongly recommend Ages over Seasons. By comparison, Ages felt like a passion project while Seasons felt like the other one they had to make to have the dual-release Miyamoto ordered.

@SupremeSarna, it was actually supposed to be a trilogy:

I did prefer Ages back when I originally played them, but that's probably just because I played that one first. (Though it appears you did the opposite. I just mean that it felt really good to be playing a new 2D Zelda at the time I played Ages,)

Even better: It was conceived as six games (remakes of Zelda 1 and 2, plus four original titles). But that's a ludicrous amount of work, so I'm glad they did what they did. I feel bad for Farore, though, as she's stuck as a cashier for optional passwords.

I finished two more games recently, starting with the PC version of Deathsmiles.


Collector's Editions of games have always been around in one way or another, but they seemed to go nuts during the seventh generation of gaming when publishers were doing whatever they could to squeeze more and more money out of a game sale. First, they increased the price of a new physical game to $60. Then, the small tokens of paid downloadable content ballooned into massive investments that sometimes cost more than the game itself, albeit providing a fraction of the content. Most memorably, there was no shortage of gigantic boxes on store shelves filled with cheaply-made trinkets, additional discs, exclusive content, artwork, and in some rare and special occasions, well-endowed mousepads.

The limited edition release of Deathsmiles for the Xbox 360 didn't feature any emboobed PC peripherals, but it did include a sharp-looking purple faceplate that piqued my interest, despite knowing absolutely nothing about the game. Like, literally nothing. It could have been an accounting simulator for all I knew, but I doubted that considering how much praise the game was already getting.

When the game arrived and I played it for the first time, I was greeted by a shooter unlike anything I had ever seen before. This was my first encounter with Cave, the famed developer celebrated what I now know as "bullet hell" shooters that set aside the metered rationing of old school sh'mups like my beloved Raiden in favor of full-on chaos. Instead of piloting weaponized spaceships, you're controlling superpowered witches, but this is far from a cute-em-up. You spend the entire game destroying beautifully-rendered grotesque monsters through mystical environments as a wild soundtrack blasts in the background. And sweet Christmas, there's a lot of bright pink bullets to dodge. I've never done drugs, but the one hour where I blitzed through the main campaign as Rosa must come pretty close to what it feels like.

The Deathsmiles soundtrack is pretty bizarre, but it had its share of standout tracks, which is why I ended up revisiting it as part of this year's 30-Day VGM Challenge video. The original 360 game is long gone, but Deathsmiles and its sequel have been ported to a ton of platforms, including Steam and the Steam Deck, which is where I ended up buying it. Scaling effects and pixelation make the game look a whole lot worse than I remember (though I was much less anal about that sort of thing way back then), but playing through again - this time with Sakura, at the behest of the corresponding Steam community - was every bit as much of a head trip so many years later.

And then, last night, in the middle of the night, I finally finished Lunar: Eternal Blue for the Sega CD, which I started back in January.


Our friend @Lunar posted about his "Lunar New Year" concept - using the annual holiday as an excuse to play through a game from the Lunar franchise - a few years back. Since then, I've taken it as an opportunity to play through the original Lunar: The Silver Star on the Sega CD, followed by Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete for the PlayStation. I was briefly introduced to the latter over twenty years ago, but the more hardcore mechanics and anime-heavy presentation ended up being a tricky pill to swallow. Revisiting them recently, though, showed me why the franchise is so beloved.

Rather than play through another port of Silver Star, I decided to play the game's Sega CD sequel, both to see where the story goes and to put my newly-modded Sega Nomad through its paces. Part of Silver Star's charm for me was how simple it was. Despite the occasional cutscene, it resembled, of all things, Final Fantasy Mystic Quest with its predictable characters, booming (and heavily period-appropriate) soundtrack, and relatively simple mechanics obfuscated by a barely-functional menu. Eternal Blue, in contrast, is much more fleshed out and cinematic. The characters and cutscenes are more developed, the battle system is better-explained, and the demands the game makes of you are much broader.

At no time is this more clear than when you're dungeon crawling. Eternal Blue's dungeons are sprawling, filled with lots of branching paths and dead ends that take a lot of time to explore comprehensively. Most significant dungeons also feature a travel mechanic/obstacle - tube elevators, lava rafters, ice chutes, etc. - that needs to be decoded to ultimately make it to the final boss. After spending upwards of an hour smacking your compass, the bosses at the end of the dungeon were sometimes a lot trickier to crack than their predecessor's counterparts. Lunar's big battle gimmick is how your enemies telegraph what attack they're about to use. It was bonus information in the original Lunar, but this time around, it's downright essential to respond to your foe's incoming move in the endgame, once the bad guys finally hide their stride.

Eternal Blue took me a long time to finish. Despite being able to play and save anywhere, booting a Sega CD game on a bulky Nomad is nowhere near as seamless as resuming a game session on a Switch, so progress felt slow. As much of a conceptual leap as it was over Silver Star, I still missed the characters and the colors of its PlayStation cousin. Losing a chunk of progress about halfway through the game after a particularly gnarly dungeon crawl wasn't much fun either, but that's not the game's fault. Things moved a whole lot faster once I started playing the game at home, and I was pretty satisfied with the game's climax, though it involved having my face kicked in by the final boss more times than I'd like to admit.

I love both games, and honestly think they're fairly close in quality. But if I have to compare them and pick a favorite, it's easily Seasons for me. Mostly because I prefer the unique season changing mechanic over time travel, but also because I like how it's more focused on combat than puzzles. Subrosia is also a pretty cool area they included, I enjoyed the extra 'world' to explore. I do agree that Onox is a fairly weak villain though. It's perfectly understandable if you prefer Ages, but I think you're being WAY too hard on Seasons here. They're both fairly comparable games.

The fact that you played Ages second as a linked game does make a difference, you get more story that way, not to mention the big finale which you probably now associate with Ages, when really it belongs to both games. I usually recommend playing both of them twice, in each order. There are bits of story and little bonuses in both that you'll only get if playing each one as the 2nd, linked game.

I knew a handful of things were tied to the linked game, like the entire Twinrova plot and Zelda's mere existence, plus the Donkey Kong reference. So I'm not counting those as Ages-exclusive. But the fact that Ages has Ralph, a pathetic but dutiful hero wannabe, and the manipulable Queen Ambi adds to its cast of characters. Every once in a while you'll catch up with one of them and see a bit of growth from them, or Ambi will build more of the Black Tower, or something like that. The female Maku Tree also left more of an impression, as she has much more personality than the sleepy male version in OoS.

In OoS, I liked the stuff with Moosh, Ricky, Dimitri, the Great Moblin, and the Subrosian girl you "date," as well as the pirate skeleton bell quest. Thing is, most of not all of those characters reappear in OoA with a slight difference regardless of linking. They're both good games, and I'll play them in the reverse order someday, but Ages felt to me like it had something the Seasons lacked.

@SupremeSarna It's been a few years now since my last playthrough, so my memories are a bit fuzzy. But I'm pretty sure those characters only reappeared in OoA because of the linked game. Or at least, there was more to them because it was a linked game. When you get around to playing the games in the opposite order, you'll see the same sort of thing, with characters from OoA reappearing in OoS and having more story/development.

I blew through this one so quick I forgot how short it was. Probably shorter than the OG GoW 2005 but it was sweet while it lasted. I enjoyed the whole brotherly love side of Kratos even though they kicked each others butts a few times along the way. It also makes it's due of the secret 2005 cutscene in the 2005 GoW you get when beating the game on god mode which is nice as they revolves an entire game around Kratos' quest to find his lost brother. The final boss Thanatos was still a chump though. He's got nothing on Hades. Next stop, God of War II ! (Which will probably take me a bit longer since it's about 10-12 hours from what I recall)

Badge - going to count this for Ninja Gaiden and change Dishonored to Vault Boy - so I keep the Ninja Gaiden badge and have 1 towards Vault Boy

This was a lot of fun and a touch annoying in a few sections (I'm thinking of the fights in the cemetery, vs. the harvester and with the Apache). I abused my controller playing this and recommend it if you like some mindless fun. The music is solid and controls were great even if I wasn't a pro at them. Big aspect was the nuts story with many pop-culture like tidbits like the clear nod to MW2's No Russian scene but the story was all over the map with lots of characters and settings that were 'fun'.
This gets me past my total from 2020 and I'm sadly slowing as the year comes to a close. I normally get busy in these final 2 months and that's happening again. I fully expect to get into the 70s as I've got at least 3 titles with solid progress, but the 80s are likely out of reach. I've only got 5 consoles without a completion yet and have 1 in progress and 2 with games I've already picked out, so hoping I can get at least 23 or so consoles done.

As I collected more G-roll for my video project, I beat Street Fighter X Tekken for the PlayStation 3, unintentionally checking off that platform in the process.


In an era where Final Fantasy VII Remake is a thing, Noctis is a playable character in Tekken 7, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate somehow manages to fill its roster with representatives from all my favorite franchises (sentient racecars excluded, naturally), it seems somewhat quaint to admit that Street Fighter X Tekken was nothing short of a dream come true when it was first announced. Tekken had cemented itself as my favorite fighting franchise from the day I bought my first PlayStation, and Street Fighter IV had unexpectedly knocked my socks off when it landed for the PlayStation 3, despite being a lukewarm Street Fighter fan before that point. The game was seemingly backed by all the money in the universe, was oozing with the same overabundance of style as Street Fighter IV did, and - of course - featured a rogues gallery of characters from the Capcom Street Fighter / Final Fight universe mashed up with a few generations of Tekken characters, pulling from their Tekken 3 variants whenever possible. And that's not even considering that the game was to be followed up with a Tekken X Street Fighter "sequel" a few years later that did the same thing with the modern Tekken engine.

I don't know if any of you were following along with this game at release, but if you were, you probably realize that "dream come true" is not what we ended up with. Street Fighter X Tekken should have been peeled out if its shiny Special Edition box (it came with a BANK, yo!) and stubbornly glued itself to the innards of the console's disc drive, not to be removed from its shiny black coffin for months. In reality, I barely touched it. I paired up my favorite Street Fighter and Tekken characters (Sakura and Yoshimitsu... don't ask), slumped my way through Arcade Mode once, and then barely picked it up after that. Even when the game was ported to the Vita and had the benefits of "anytime" portability, I paid the game very little attention or time. Something about it failed to click with me, especially when it came to tickling the twisted dreams of a Tekken fan like myself.

I've wondered for years what it is about Street Fighter X Tekken that made it land with such a wimper, but I've usually just attributed it to three things: the luster of the new Street Fighter engine wearing off (we'd seen two Street Fighter IV retail releases at this point), the intense marketing for the game overselling what we actually ended up with, and the fighting system itself, which appeals to Street Fighter fans like second nature but feels like putting casts and braces all over the Tekken characters. Those things were all true on some level, but this great video from Matt McMuscles went into detail about it. Despite stealing Street Fighter's art style and turning the "XTREME" dial up to 11, fights weren't very exciting. They took too long, attacks didn't do enough damage, and the massive roster didn't leave enough development time for things like more fighting environments or interesting single-player objectives. Double all that for the Tekken characters, who were treated like exchange students / substitute teachers that felt signficantly lost in translation that other, more compatible guest franchises hadn't in the past.

Namco also never delivered their promised Tekken X Street Fighter either, which is besides the point and probably a wise financial choice, but still manages to suck. They did shove Akuma in Tekken 7 for some reason, which almost feels worse than if they hadn't done anything at all.

The game wasn't entirely without merit. I ate up the presentation like a supermarathon runner with a pint of Ben & Jerry's; the intro FMV, in particular - which swaps out Street Fighter IV's "ink" flourishes with fighters made of water - is exactly how an overhyped release that brings together two massive fanbases should begin. The roster, despite being in a game that doesn't deserve it, is massive and loaded with obvious must-haves and obscure guest characters, and that's before considering Fat Mega Man and Pac-Man driving a Mokukin body suit. Finally, I'm a sucker for remixes of classic songs, admittedly, but Street Fighter X Tekken's reinterpretations and mashups of classic songs from Street Fighter II, Tekken 3, and Tekken Tag Tournament are outstanding, hence the whole reason for me digging out this accursed game after so many years.

As Matt's video notes, the game eventually got a huge post-release patch that fixes character balance, power-ups, and the damage curve overall. Fights are snappier, attacks feel more consequential, and the game feels more like the Street Fighter IV game from which it inherited so many mechanics. Part of my bad initial experience also may have simply been with the characters I chose. Yoshi and Sakura - God love them - bumbled around like they were still learning there moves, but playing through Arcade mode with figureheads like Ryu and Kazuya felt more like real brawling. It's sad to think about what the legacy of the game could have been had the patched game been available at release, instead of dropped months later after being buried by negative press and DLC nickel-and-diming.

Gravel
Already have driving badge

This was pretty solid in most areas and amusing to annoying in a few others.
The good is that it looked excellent, especially the events in the stadiums (under the lights) or in the driving rain. It also controlled great once you got used to the breaking characteristics and the audio was great in 5.1.
The meh was the 'story' about a fictional TV station that covers this racing series with 5 dudes to take down and the announcer guy was annoying - he repeated many lines, thankfully only at the start or end or events, but so many of the lines were really bad. The cheese factor was in full force. Another minor annoyance was the menu of episodes, it frequently wanted to highlight the highest episode you could do and would show that on screen, but you were still active back on the episode you just finished, so it got confusing if you hit A or L/R and the display had to snap back to your episode or enter into one you maybe didn't expect.
There are a few different types of events but one was kind of dumb - it had these black signs that would cycle and show either a red X or green up arrow and you had to hit the green and avoid the red and couldn't skip them all together. Red slowed you, but what was annoying is with certain cameras and taller vehicles you couldn't hardly see the next set and they would sometimes not lock on red/green until you were almost too close. Lastly the physics were pretty amusing. If you or the AI cars hit certain things along the track just right you could sail off into the sky spinning like crazy.
To consider this beat I did beat the final dude and triggered credits. I also hit level 50 (I think 99 might be tops) and I earned at least 6 stars (of the 9-18) per episode. 3 stars were on offer for any given event or series in the episodes. There are 15 episodes + 4 bonus ones (free DLC I believe), plus the 5 episodes against the 5 characters. I got 160 of the total of 270 stars (90 events). I will likely go for the full 270 and it was enjoyable to play. I also unlocked and used most of the 64 vehicles in the game as I tried to use different ones frequently.

Game was decent and for the like $4 I paid, was worth at least triple my $$.

Milestone did the old WRC games up through 2013. Kylotonn handled them after that up through the recent WRC Generations. The license has now gone to Codemasters (now part of EA), who developed the Dirt and Colin McRae Rally series.

Milestone was seemingly having a ton of games released around the time Gravel came out. MXGP, Ride, Sebastien Loeb Rally, Moto GP...

Their most recent game that anyone took note of was Hot Wheels Unleashed.

I also beat Arietta of Spirits on Switch recently. Would have mentioned it with that last game but forgot all about it. Probably because I was surprised when the credits rolled.

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe
Counting this towards the Cross the Streams Badge

I finally got a PS3 title in - after my Slim crapped out last year on me I was able to pick up a Super Slim and then super annoyed to learn that Sony locked HDDs to consoles, so my recently installed 1TB drive in that Slim wouldn't swap in. I haven't wanted to stick in another drive into the S-Slim and format it so I've been just living with the 12GB internal space and honestly WTF was Sony thinking there, since they didn't even include a bracket for a drive and 12GB is absurdly low when so many games require an install or patches - dumb.
Anyhow back to the game, I beat the DC story path last year and maybe could have pushed to do the MK path as well, but that noted issue above blocked that and it gets to be a clear this year. Game was decent, nothing special, nothing terrible. The story had you playing as 6 of the MK characters against both the DC side and several of your 'teammates' with 4 fights per character. I recall the game being a touch annoying at times from last year and I was maybe a bit worse with the MK cast, but it really only took me like 90+ mins to get through all the fights and several story cut scenes. I also took a break as I was charging my controller whilst playing - yet another dumb Sony decision, and the cable was just loose enough to randomly trigger a few buttons or something as I was getting phantom inputs from it.

First one is definitely tougher. Though it got easier when we realized you can deflect a fair bit of enemy fire.

----- OP now updated
... for the slightly past mid-point of November

A few noteworthy things:
- We surpassed 50% on all consoles cleared - nice to see several folks getting a few more cleared.
- We hit 150 collective badges with @incubus421 earning the only one so far this month, though I think @TalonJedi87 could have some with his God of War push, if he wants them.
- The Top 10 participants on the year all have bacon except for position 10 who is just 1 short, but that person, @DemonAlcohol just above, earned only the 3rd golden globe (and 1 of those globes belongs to a participant with just 2 consoles).
- We're at 56 games in Nov which is down a bit from our recent pace, but with this week including a nice 4 day weekend for hopefully most of y'all, maybe we'll get a bunch completed before December rolls around.

Monthly leaderboard so far:
1. @TalonJedi87 & @Renaissance2K - 7 clears
3. @Heavyd814life & Slickriven - 5 clears
5. @BloodPuppetX & @SupremeSarna - 4 clears
7. @Bleed_DukeBlue & @Scott - 3 clears
X. 6 folks with 2 clears & 6 more with 1 clear

Sweet! I am glad I decided to go on my God of War marathon spree in light of Ragnarok! I should beat God of War III before 12/1 so that'll be another one for me. I may possibly squeeze in Kirby: Forgotten Land too as I am on world 6 now and I think that's the final world.

Hey @Slickriven , I just noticed this now but can you please remove the PS4 Pro from my list of active consoles? I sold that when I got my PS5. Sorry for not double checking my list. Thanks!

#28 - Horizon Forbidden West PlayStation 5

Just like the first one, I found it hard to put down. I couldn't help but venture to each '?' as I revealed it. Obviously, such is the nature of these games. Aside from a few holes in the story / abrupt endings to built up branching stories, I can say I liked FW about on the same level as ZD.
I completed this with 89.18% completion and topped it off with the Platinum trophy. Took almost 92 hours.

6th of Nov, 70th overall, 1st Game Gear title
Woody Pop
Already have the badge(s) it could apply to

I wanted to get in a Game Gear title and have a list of 40+ titles that were recommended on the system and this is one of them. It's apparently a Japanese only Sega Master System release that got ported to all regions for the GameGear. It's a themed break-out clone with around 50 levels to beat and most times lets you pick the next room/board after you clear 1. You also can collect powerups like a larger paddle, slowing the ball, 2 balls, fireball, sticky paddle, stronger balls, etc. Then there are obstacles like toy trains, or blocks that will release 3 toys that mess with your ball or just studs that can't break. The ball starts to speed up within 5 seconds after release and trying to control the paddle with a d-pad was not a lot of fun as I easily went too far and missed the ball once it got going faster. They also have the corners of the screen protected (in about 10% I suppose), so you don't have to move your paddle there, but that wasn't helpful as my brain continually forgot and wanted to cover them.

Overall it wasn't horrible, but save states btwn levels helped some and you got 3 balls per life with endless continues - so long as you didn't quit or end the run you could keep going, but lose all lives on a room and all progress was reset, which is understandable. I did it on the advanced (middle) difficulty vs beginner or expert, but watched a YT vid to get an idea on how many levels I maybe had left and the player was on expert and didn't miss a single ball, so maybe he was using the required knob controller on the Master System version or other hacks... or was just amazeballs - I was not that good and my final score reflected that as it reset on each continue.

#27-God of War III Remastered via PlayStation 5
Still probably my favorite game in the OG GOW series. From the gorgeous set pieces to the voice acting and adrenaline filled action sequences the whole game feels like a non stop ride at Disney land that I don't want to end. Next stop, God of War 2018! Almost time for the Ragnarok!

7th of Nov, 71st overall, 2nd Game Boy title
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

Beat this mainly for the RTT GotM. Not much to say, it's a decent early Mario title that was pretty easy and not abundantly long.

Short and charming little game that takes it's combat system from Heroes of Might and Magic. I wish there was more to it aside from additional "expansions" to purchase. There aren't enough games like Heroes; I need more!

Thanks for the heads up. I love Heroes of might and magic and was looking for something similar. I picked up the trilogy for $5

@DemonAlcohol That's a good call. I might grab the others while they're still on sale as well. It's certainly worth the price!

I finished Robo Aleste on Sega CD for the RTT thread.

I do still own a Sega CD, so you can add that system and count it for that.

Does beating a game twice count? My friend and I finished a second playthrough of The Devil In Me last night but if only one playthrough counts then that's fine.
