#1408371 What games are you playing now?

Posted by the Wozz on Today, 10:53 AM

I''ve been enjoying Metal Gear Solid 2. The story is kinda dumb, as with most MGS, but it's got a lot of personality and it's still pretty fun. I want to go through the whole Solid series eventually. I will probably just go straight to 3 next.

 

 

EDIT - I was initially interested because I found it for $6 (with a big blockbuster sticker on the disc lol), and I was listening to an old episode of Retronauts where they were talking about how the main theme is misinformation, and that really got me interested in it. I'm always interested in misinformation, sedition, political intrigue, even if it's done in a supremely dumb way.

I need to restring my RG completely before my show coming up in two weeks, but SOMEHOW I have not broken a single string since using lighter gauges (9's) than I'm used to. I know that I have been, for sure, playing a lottttt lighter than I normally would.

When we were moving, I found an abandoned hello kitty squire strat. Gonna get it fixed up and make it my Eb standard guitar.

Whoa.

Analogue is making a portable system that is Game Boy (all versions) compatible, and can play Neo Geo Pocket Color, Game Gear, and Lynx games (with adapter), and has a chiptune music editor. Some quality screen as well and all that for $200. That's not too bad at all for what we're getting.

 

 

This looks really cool, but I was disappointed when the "built in DAW" is just nanoloop, which is about the least intuitive piece of software I've ever used. Would have been better w/ LSDJ. That being said, the hardware just looks amazing.

I love the PS1 D-pad, personally, but it does make doing Street Fighter type moves kinda hard which I found playing through SOTN these last few days. It was pretty hard to do the mega jump consistently.

Metal Slug is 97% sprite art enthusiasm and 3% "I actually enjoy playing this game"

I'd say 80/20 but yes

I never really understood why people cared about having their libraries split up other than having to click one extra thing to get to your game. I would prefer NOT to have something like Steam/Epic/etc running while I'm playing a game, but that's an issue for another day.

So I looked at my old messages to Multimedia Mike, and i forgot that he basically made an updated version of this site...

You don't need any plug ins. should just work! Nice lay out, too

 

Hell yeah, it works in Firefox, and the random game it gave me was Dragon Spirit, a soundtrack I have always liked but usually forget about for some reason -- I even have it on cassette

#1406990 What games are you playing now?

Posted by the Wozz on 26 September 2019 - 11:22 AM

Literally never played a Devil May Cry game before, and I scooped  up the first one for $5 at a video store last night, and aside from there being a little tooooooo much fighting in some areas, and wonky camera stuff, I'm really enjoying it. It's got a lot of personality, and the first cutscene had a woman throw a motorcycle at the main character, so I was pretty sold from the get-go. .

 

Oh my god nevermind this first boss is such a pain in the ass
