    I've been playing Weaponlord, which is for the SNES/Genesis. It's considered to rival modern games for it's unforgiving nature, with a Barbarian atmosphere, as it's inspired from not only Conan, but 1988s Barbarian games.

    The complete lack of Street Fighter inspiration designs and non-SF animations are also one the main things that drew me to this game years ago, because James Goddard (who use to be an Capcom employee for Deejay's design) decided to not play it safe, opposed to the Street Fighter clone developers of the 1990s.

    The game itself was way ahead of it's time in mechanics, where it makes it harder to damage your opponent more than any other fighter out there. That really means alot to me, because I like games where things can become more complex, where you don't need supers nor any other comeback mechanic as a way out.

    Here is combo video of the very least

    And Weaponlord Art

    Worms Armageddon (on Steam), every day.

    Just turned 20 years old recently, still the best in the series/genre and one of the post replayable games ever.

    Maybe I'll do another attempt at a play-through of the Quest for Glory Series/Ultima series eventually.

    Currently playing Fighting Vipers 2, Soul Calibur, Suzuki Alstare Extreme Racing and F1 World Grand Prix 2.

    POD 2 aka. POD: Speedzone from Ubisoft, is actually a cool racing game. It could have been better, but as it is, it's a really good futuristic racing game. Check it out whenever you guys have some time. The online multiplayer for that dreamcast game, is back up too. As soon as I get a new dreamcast console, I'm planning on playing it online soon.:)

    And lots and lots of good ol' Daytona USA!:D

    And I'm definitely gonna check out, that Draconus Cult of the Wyrm adventure game soon. I've never played it before. But I hear the game is really cool.:)

    They have so much old school games from the 1990s and some 1980s on the Nintendo Switch. The Switch is the most retro console of this generation. I still can't like the new fighters of today, except for ARMS.

    Well it's different tastes for different people for a boxer game. Kill La Kill published by Arc Systems also has my interest, for a rock paper scissors fighter. They said it was also somewhat innovative, we'll see. I think this is good for 3D fighters, because I don't like the 2.5D ones. Keep them separate on sprites and polygons I say, even though it's a budget issue for the former.

    I played TNN Motorsports aka Buggy Heat the other day.
    Wooah! That game is fun.
    But the emulator I used, has a bug that keeps making the vehicles, turn left or right by themselves automatically. And then the game crashes.:holla:

    NES online has taken up my Mario Maker 2 time immensely. Sometimes a quick go at Splatoon. Currently playing Metroid and a the first mid-boss. I’m missing some power-ups though. The boots, Screw Attack, wave beam and spider-ball(?) where I can stick to walls.

    Honestly, this is reminding me of Metroid 2 as a kid in that, I’m playing portable Metroid, and I’m lost, haha. I’ll end up beating this though. I don’t get the hate the game seems to get when it comes to old NES games. Everything, especially the music, is spot on. Clearing a room full of enemies without stopping momentum is great feeling. The platforming challenges with the ice beam are good times too. Navigating downwards as a ball, with it’s own physics, is soothingly satisfying as well.

    There are some hilariously cheap things though. Enemies being able to hit you when you walk through doors. Some doors and enemy can spawn and come at you. You’ll see and there’s nothing you can do because Samus is still loading haha.

    I have this on a hard drive but too lazy for a controller option, and the Switch form factor makes this the best way to play it. I’ve waited too long to play this but glad I finally did. It’s been worth it so far.

    The first half of the year were older Sega titles. Once Metroid is completed I'm going back to Alex Kidd in Miracle World. It's the Sega Ages release and I'm lost on the last level.

    This is me as well. I haven't put that much into Arms, especially recently, but I really dig what I've played.

    Been playing some Shining Force 1 on the Genesis recently. :D

    Always wanted to give that one a shot; it looks like a blast. Plus it supports four players, which is awesome! It was always such a shame that the Dreamcast version of Daytona USA only supported two. Does anyone still play Daytona on XBLA? That game with 8 players has to be the pinnacle of racing game experiences.
