Fighting force 64.

This was a "Fun" game, I like how you could pick where to go next, if you had a certain amount of points.
Got annoying when getting stuck in a constant pick item up, get hit drop rhythm when all you want to do is smack the guy in front.
Got as far as a boss with a jetpack and a mini gun, figured out I had to throw stuff at him but when ever I tried he shot me making me drop it.
One to get rid of then.............

Brute Force a first, a belt scroller I hate! Horrible stereotype yank digitised speech, 2 different enemies and the same street for every level.

I got to the third level on 1 credit and you fight cars as well as the same 2 enemies and you enter a subway and fight a different enemy that dodges your bullets. So many guns lying around it’s easy to get that far.

Tough Turf Sega scrolling fighter like Double Dragon but everybody uses weapons and the only original thing is the last boss is a female. One of any 3 games to have female last bosses Guardian and Combatribes (Cyborgs ain’t lady’s)

DD crew another not very good Sega Belt Scroller where the bosses are Cynthia Rockford and Bennett from Commando.

Really enjoying my time with the new Crash Bandicoot, my first time playing one of these. I didn’t expect it to be so hard, but I’m having fun

Also looking forward to the new Genshin Impact update:

Armouries - N64
A game that could of been great if you could see more than a few feet in front,
Because a being killed by something you cant see is a fair challenge

Also
MUGEN, back to fiddling, noticed in the past people being sad and wanting to select a character, so rather than just having random select only.
This screen was ment for a maximum of 880, got about 1300

Trying to get all the characters to fit on the screen and also replacing all the proper fighting game charters with ones that dont play the same.

Still doing the dailies for some bloody reason, they just finished the gliding challenge, it was more a test in frustration than a test of skill

I find myself wondering if I'd have been better buying Skyrim for Switch, as the Witcher 3 is a boring, tedious, confusing slow-grind-fest.
Thoughts and prayers.

Just booted up Eternal Darkness again to sink into.
Bomberman R on Switch for multiplayer japes. Not really played it before, and so far keep blowing myself up!

Really? I was looking into Witcher 3, but get conflicting reports on the gameplay, and how good it is.

I really enjoyed Witcher 3, particularly for its rich setting, stories and characters. It turned me into a fan not only of the game itself but also the books it was based on and both the TV adaptations.

If there's a problem with it, it's the same one most modern RPGs have in that they've all got differing and complex mechanics, and you're practically halfway through the campaign before you've got a handle on them.

My initial review might have been somewhat hasty, I'm thinking.

I'm now 12 hours in and seem to be progressing better now. I'm up to level six and can now deal with enemies who'd previously just swatted me aside. the crafting system is still pretty confusing but I've levelled-up a couple of weapons and pieces of armour. I'm actually getting quite into the game, though I'm starting to realise that the world of The Witcher is immense. This isn't going to be over any time soon :D

Up to the hotel in Silent Hill 2. What a great game this has been so far. I THINK I still prefer the first one but SH2 runs it close...very close.

Not sure that Pyramid Head's reputation has aged too well though. He's more of a nuisance than anything, although he did make me think "oh sh*t!" at one point in the sewer section of the prison labyrinth when he came walking around a corner without warning.

Definitely thankful that there aren't any dogs or flying enemies this time though.

I intend to play through the whole series, good or bad. I understand that the games get a bit ropey after Konami killed off Team Silent following SH3...

^ Silent Hill 4 is still pretty decent, though I remember thinking the enemies weren’t particularly memorable besides just the one. You’ll know which one when you see them! I gave up on the series after Homecoming
