Super Tennis (on Switch Online).

A tennis game I'm determined to try and excel in. I was always more of a fan of Jimmy Connors, and Smash Court tennis series, when it came to the old-school 2D tennis games, and never truly got into Super Tennis. I plan to change that now! Once you get the timing right in this, its very satisfying.

Started a run through of Arkham Asylum last night.

One of my favourite games and it's been a while seen I last played through it.

Booted up SotN again while waiting for weathering effects to dry and I swear it's punishing me for something.

Currently playing Beneath a Steel Sky on ScummVM. It's one of those graphic adventures I had in my backlog for years but never got around to finish.

That's been in my GoG collection for years and I've never even fired it up.

Ninja Spirit. It's a swine, still can't make it any further than the 4th round, but it's definitely one of the best side scrollers I've ever played for sheer unrelenting action.

F-Zero on Switch. I swear I've probably spent more hours on this over the years than just about any other game I've ever played. I can't own it without having to clear Master level all over again, I've managed Knight and Queen cups, but failed miserably at King on Expert last night.

I tried several games I just can’t get into

Switch Fire Emblem
Switch Astral Chain I’m liking this much more on casual difficulty
Plague Knight hate it too hard
Corpse Killer having to replay the same level every time you die or other levels that don’t further the game.
Blaster Master 2

Games I like River City girls class scrolling Fighter
Fire Emblem Echoes last level trying to beat Judah with
Celica the usual unfair unblockable magic attack that takes your party down to half energy

No. There's nothing like that. You can share your created dungeons with a friend via Amiibos, but that's as far as it goes.

Having someone else around to talk through the puzzles is always good though.
