I just played for the first time Geometry Wars Retro Evolved, woah!
A Cool Game but it gets quite crazy doesn't it!
Didn't get any achievements though only got up to 30 odd thousand points.

Tried playing the recent Rocket Knight reboot, it seems like damage is something that is unavoidable, it also feels rather "Urgh" speaking of

Sonic 4.
Sonic games should be about being able to move fast from a standstill, this on the other hand, Sonic handles like a slug and in the air its pot luck if you will land in a pit of not.
Platforming is really naff landing on a moving platform is bloody irritating

Pole Position II, from the PlayStation Namco Classics disc #3. That Namco track hairpin turn prevents me from taking the Qualifying Pole Position every time. But endlessly fun as a racer.

Mario 64 and Paper Mario: Oragami King, on the Switch.

If you can accept Paper Mario is no longer a RPG it's actually a pretty good game.

Spelunky 2 seems a heck of a lot more difficult, but all the new stuff really works well. I don’t like the new art style at all, though

Mario Kart Switch. I barely played online before, because random match making when my skills are so bad isn't enjoyable. But with friends it's much more fun, and leads to plenty of banter. Nothing beats leaving your mate shellshocked inches from the finish line!

Horizon zero dawn. Only got half an hour on it but think it'll be right up my street.
