Finished my first game of the year.  It certainly helped that I've been stuck at home sick the last three days.  Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is the fifth AC game that I have beaten, and I would probably rank it at #3 out of those 5.  I'm actually a little disappointed after all the praise I have seen heaped on it it since the release.  Maybe it's because I've already played Syndicate, which handles much better?  The setting is fantastic, but the whole shtick got kind of tedious after I was boarding my 15th ship or so.  The ship-to-ship combat was great, but to fully take a ship required boarding and it was just the old standard button mashing AC combat.  Still, I generally had fun, but it is not one I will revisit.

Just Beat:
2.Resident Evil Remake:
I'm awful at survival horror games, I have a bad habbit of saving every chance I get which these games scorn, I also just seem to be torn up and lack ammo most occassions. I admit I accidently played this on Easy - The difficulty selection menu was not clear, I genuinely thought I selected Normal. I managed to get through the game with ease... but I did have a good time :) I can see why thise Remake is well regarded. Graphically it is phenominal for the time and holds up very well. The analogue input instead of the classic tank navigation is very welcome and I liked the addition of the Crimson Heads and character development they built around a newly added boss.

I haven't beat Chris's campaign yet, but I will do so before I play the upcoming RE2 REMAKE, but now it's all about Kingdom Hearts & beating the series backlog before KH3 in a couple of weeks :)

Playing:
Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance (PS4)

Plan to play:
Kingdom Hearts III (PS4)
Resident Evil 2 REMAKE (PS4)
Final Fantasy V (PC)
Ni No Kuni (PS3)

Beat:
2. Resident Evil Make (PS4) 1. Kingdom Hearts RE:Coded (PS4)

No lie, I read that as RE2 Remake that you just beat instead of REmake

Haha no, just numbered it as the 2nd game I beat this year :P

Considering how many people seem to have got Kingdom Hearts III early I wouldn't be surprised if many have already. I'm still undecided if I will have time to beat RE2 Remake before I dive into KH3. I should have a solid weekend to play it during the 26th & 27th - which I have booked Holiday off for anyway, along with the following week, really want nothing to get in the way of Kingdom hearts III :P & as that is released on the 29th, I reckon I should be able too :)

1. Adventures of Lolo(NES-Nintendo Switch Online)

I honestly never even expected to play this game for more than a few levels but, I really had a lot of fun with it which is surprising as I never can get into NES games. I love how it is simply designed and am impressed by how fairly complex each level can be. It also had zero bugs as far as I could tell. I hope Nintendo puts the second game on their service.

I also want to point out how OP Lolo is. He can kill the Devil with two bubbles, how does no one bring this up when talking about powerful Nintendo characters?

Time: 5-10 hours

I crushed out game #2 last night.  I played the NES Ducktales on the Disney Afternoon Collection.  The music is incredible, and its pretty great sprite work, but is laughably easy once you know what you are doing.  Pogo-ing around as Scrooge will never not be fun.

Failed hard last year and stopped updating before the halfway mark  :-\ Giving this another go this year to see how far I can get, considering my new year resolution is to play more games.

3 more games to add to the list:

5. Balloon Kid (Gameboy) 1/11 - Beat
6. Bayonetta 2 (Switch) 1/13/19 - Beat
7. Mega Man 11 (Switch) 1/13/19 - Beat


Balloon kid I've been playing off and on for about a week, progressing a little further each time and finally beat the damn thing the other day. For such a simple game, it can be a little tricky here and there.
It snowed this weekend and I was stuck inside which gave me a chance to finish up Bayonetta 2; I think I enjoyed it even more than the first one and cant wait for 3 now. Mega Man was kind of a wild card for me. I've always been terrible at Mega Man games, but since this new one has different difficulties I figured I'd give it a shot. I tried on normal to get started and got my ass handed to me, went back and played it on newcomer to get the hang of things and beat it. I decided to give normal another shot after that and it went much smoother, just had to learn how to play the game! Might open the door for some of the older games this year for me!

Some games are better left in your past:


6. Bug! (Saturn): There are several Saturn games that are very nostalgic for me. I had two friends growing up, Tony and Evan, each had a Sega Saturn and beyond hanging out with them playing their Saturn games was my favorite thing to do when I went to their houses. My friend Evan had Bug! which at the time I thought was a cool, quarky platformer with a very 90s cartoonish mascot character, in the vein of Earthworm Jim or Boogerman. In that regard Bug! is great, but my praise of this game mostly ends there. Playing Bug! now I'm able to see that while it was a pioneer in early 3D platforming, the game just doesn't play that well and the combination of very basic controls, very hard gameplay, and various issues such as enemies charging you/firing things at you off screen and extremely hard to gauge jumps due to the game's 3D environments, make for a pretty unenjoyable game. The soundtrack is nothing more than very cartoonish loops that are fitting at first and then get annoying after hearing them for more than 10-minutes. Bug makes goofy comments that don't overstay their welcome which is nice, but that's about the best I can say regarding the audio. And then there are the graphics, which are mostly very plain with stages being maze-like and filled with the same dozen or so enemies with some unique bosses at the end of each stage. Overall, Bug! isn't a terrible game, but it isn't a good game either. I will give the developers a hand for creating one of the earlier 3D platformers available before Super Mario 64 created the gold standard in that genre, but sadly I just feel like playing games like Donkey Kong Country 2, Sonic and Knuckles, and various other 2D platformers that came out during the same time that are way, way better. I'd give this one a solid pass unless you are curious to see 3D platforming before Super Mario 64 revolutionized that entire genre. (1/17/19) [21/50]

04] This War of Mine: The Little Ones (PS4)

One of my favourites of this console generation, played it about 3 times last year, it also finally finishes off January's 4. I just hope I can get stuck into some PS2 games and start February's early by beating the next one by the end of this month.
