Games Beaten

-Mighty Gunvolt Burst (Switch)

????? Whereas mainline Gunvolt and Mighty No. 9 are spiritual successors to Mega Man, this game is an evolution of those NES classics. The look and feel are very much MM, as is the structure of the game. It's not long or hard (despite some instant death spots) but has legs thanks to multiple playable characters and a plethora of unlockable customization options for each. It's not enough to warrant a marathon of every character but it's a game you could come back to multiple times.

-Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! (Switch)

????? This is not a game one can expound upon without ruining it for the new player. This is a horror game and yes, there are a few graphic moments, but this game works because of the psychological dread that builds in the player as the experience unfolds. This game kept me up late into the night, not so much because I wanted to know what would happen (though I did want to know), but more so because I could not believe what I was seeing. I needed resolution or I wasn't going to sleep.

Games Bought

Aside from PS4 PS+ games Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time and The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan, the only game I picked up in July was a copy of Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World (Switch).

Games Being Played

-Wargroove (Switch)

I wanted to play something that wasn't actiony and this fantasy Advance Wars game fit the bill perfectly. I'm at the start of Act 4.

-Destiny 2 (PS4)

Trying to finish up the challenges in the Solstice event.

-Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate (Switch)

Into a new phase of the endgame grind after defending a fortress from a giant elder dragon. Hunter Rank 11!

-Mario Super Picross (Super Famicom - Switch Online)

I'm into World 8 of the Wario puzzles.

That Asha in Monster World game is really good.

Aside from the games I review, right now I'm playing a lot of Klonoa Fantasy Reverie and Live A Live.

I really want to play Live A Live but I have a feeling that's going to be a birthday money game at the end of the year.

Wargroove! I just bought Into the Breach and was trying to remember the name of that other Advance Wars a-like game I loved. 

I really want to play that Crash Bandicoot game 'cause it's by Toys for Bob. I'm waiting for a sale.

I just listened to a podcast about Star Control 2 and am thinking about downloading Ur-Quan Masters again. I'm surprised Toys for Bob has survived all these years but it's a shame they have been shuffled around to mostly small or licensed projects. They're really talented.

I had no idea they did Star Control I and II. Cool. I may have to look for the Genesis version of the first game.
