Mario Vs Rabbids on the Nintendo Switch. Excellent game :D
I fancy a nice hot cup of tea. Splash of milk. No sugar.

Damn good game but also very evil in places.

I finally got around to playing 'Life is Strange,' and just completed episode one, had them on Steam for ages.
It's actually better than I thought it would be.

Final Fight and Final Fight Guy on the Super Famicom. Bar a couple of different enemy placements, playable characters, and Guy maybe running slightly better they really didn't do anything to fix the many problems Final Fight had with Guy. Stage 4 is still completely absent, you only fight 3 enemies at a time, many breakable objects are missing, there are less health pickups in places making the game a little more stingy with health, Abigail feels cheap beyond belief. But its still Final Fight, so I still enjoyed myself. Stage 5 and 6 are still way too long though, such a pain to play through those especially as you don't continue directly where you left off (you go all the way back to the start of the stage). Managed to get my tactics down for pretty much every boss now, only Belger messes me up more than he should.

Next up are the GBA and Mega CD ports of Final Fight :mrgreen:

Sonic Adventure DX- After a 2ND 130 Emblem run, that last darn achievement unlocked! It is done, no more! I can finally reward myself by getting the rest of Adventure 2's achievements. :)

Out of the frying pan, into the volcano then! Sonic Adventure 2's would be a nightmare to get all of. I just cheated in the end on the DC version to play the Green Hill Zone. Saved me hours of frustration!

I've done it before on the GC version so I know what I'm in for. XD Just want that achievement list to grow with Sonic achievements. in comparison, I think having no clue what exactly to do in Big the Cat's missions in regards to reeling in fish perfectly (In the end, just tap the fast reel button slowly) for 15 years is a bigger pain then the trial and error of some of SA2's missions.

Now Sonic Heroes' Emblem Completion.....that can bugger off. :lol: Having played the PS2 version recently, it had aged much worse then than the Adventure series, and I used to like Heroes.... :lol:

I don't even remember Heroes having Emblems. I've only ever completed it fully once though (with every team) for the best ending around launch. Never touched it after that, it was a real slog to fully complete it several times. Then again, I did the same with Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic 2K6 somehow!

Its pretty bad on the extra missions, and your "reward" is a Hard Mode which completing that only nabs you a "Thank You" screen.

Gave up the hunt on the Casino Zone back in the day. Unless there's something I don't know its pure luck to get the best scores via the slot machines.

Thimbleweed Park. Odd game, odd ending but entertaining enough and what you would expect from the makers of Maniac Mansion/Monkey Island.

Final Fight CD for the Mega CD. Yeah, just as hard as I remember. Never managed to finish it up until now. Those last two levels are real killers... so glad I managed it though, that's another Capcom game ticked off the list.

Replayed most of the games on Snes Mini.
Castlevania IV, and Megaman X was really good, especially if unlocking the "Hadouken" secret weapon :lol:

WET on 360.

Enjoyed it but very anti-climatic ending.
