I tried to get started on this yesterday using my retropie setup, and gave up pretty quickly. I wanted to start with something simple, Super Mario Land. First thing I forgot is that bluetooth controllers on my RPi have a little input lag, and it made the game just a little weird to play. So then I plugged my 8bitdo SNES30 in via USB, but the cable I have is very short so I had to sit on the floor right in front of the TV, but whatever. Then after getting a game over in the 4th world, I needed to figure out how to continue. Per the internet: hold select at the game over screen. Well, holding select on my RPi causes it to wipe the bluetooth config or something, and it just turns off the controller basically. Luckily I have a 8bitdo SNES30 Pro which is designed for the Switch and has some extra buttons to use, I think I can get around any issues like that. I also ordered some 9' and 10' USB cables for maximum gaming.

I love mayo and would have never dreamed of trying it instead of butter. I love butter too, but I'm down to try it.

Here's my top tier picks:


Dead cells - Frustrating, but every bit of progress you make tickles the addiction centers in your brain. I haven't played it since the latest patch but it's supposed to be a lot more friendly now.

Blaster Master Zero - It's basically Blaster Master, but updated a bit. The soundtrack is pretty amazing. 

Sonic Mania - I'm not the biggest fan of Sonic games but damn does this game have some 90's 'tude going.

Axiom Verge - Yet Another rygarmania, but it's pretty great. Great soundtrack, great atmosphere. 

Celeste - One of my favorite games of 2018. If you ever wished that meat boy actually controlled well, this is the game for you.

The Messenger - Ninja Gaiden but every screen is a checkpoint

Into The Breach - This is a bit of an odd one since I haven't played it much. It's a rogue-like turn-based strategy game. If you lose, you get to take one person on your team back, and they keep all their progress. The battles are short and relatively simple. Enemies project their actions before you take your turn, so your goal is to react to them. But sometimes you can't and that gets frustrating. There's lots of little "achievement" type things that grant you currency to buy new teams to try out. It's simple, but it's punishing if you goof up.

Yeah it's pretty rad. I bought Yoku's Island Express for like $2 because it was onsale + gold points.

Let me know what you think of it.  I played the ukulele on the soundtrack, but haven't actually picked up the game yet.

Oh wow! That's awesome dude. The game it's self is pretty great. Very unique feeling. It's pretty short and if it had some better travel options for getting around the map quickly, or even easier navigation, I would have been more motivated to 100% it.
