Right now, I'm playing Phantasy star 2 and I'm still in the first half of the game.........

So far its good. Only thing I hate is the random encounters.

There's a lot more to hate than that, the combat is borderline broken...

Decided to play the original Donkey Kong Country to see if it's still as bad as I remembered. For the most part it was going pretty good...until I got to the first Mine cart level. Holy god that level is awful. They put the check point way too early, and the level itself is much too long. And later games supposedly are even worse with their Mine cart levels. Also the game doesn't save when you beat the boss...why?!

I recently got my PS2 games shipped up to me from my parent's house and I busted open a few classics like Sly Cooper, Persona 4, and Ico, but instead of playing those games I put in the first Incredible Hulk movie game. Surprisingly not the worst movie license game but it is sooooooooooooo repetitive.

Besides putting myself through that shenanigan I'm finishing my Hero mode run of Link Between Worlds, which makes me wish the game was a little longer. Also I'm finally playing Pikmin 3, didn't even start it though I got it at Christmas.

Playing Wind Waker HD and it's my first time playing this Zelda title at all, believe it or not. I'm loving it so far!

Mostly relaxing with Arc Style: Solitaire as of late.

It's not anywhere near as bad as the NL review made it out to be.

Sure, it's just a no-frills Solitaire game, so if you already have Solitaire on your 3DS in some form there's no reason to consider it, but I haven't ran into any of the technical issues the review mentioned, so I have no idea how they came to the conclusion that it was broken (both the button & touch controls have worked fine for me these past few days, with not a single hiccup).

I'm almost convinced that they just trashed the game because they knew it was one most here could care less about, and figured the review would get more attention if they played up (made up?) the issues for a humorous "bad" game review. I've honestly never felt that way about a NL review before, and am a bit disappointed in them...

I finally beat the Mine Cart level after no less than 20 tries, and then I find that I can't save, and I game overed on a cheap jump in the very next level. Wow. I'm totally done with this game.

Could've used the warp. There's a warp in every level in the first two worlds.

The only way you can save the game (at least in the SNES version) is by going to Candy's Save Point which is usually before the boss. It's pretty inconvenient in hindsight.

How the hell was I supposed to find a magical warp point at the bottom of a bottemless pit?! It looks like it's at a certain point of the cliff, too.

It's official, I hate this game.

Used the trick, and made it to level 4 of world 2 before game overing twice. I would've made it farther, but I was having trouble with this one jump on level 1...

All this Donkey Kong Country talk is making me want to retry it now. I never really liked it either... felt like a watered down version of Mario to me.

Anyways... I'm currently playing Castlevania:SOTN, and I'll be starting up Halo 4 later this week... Oh, and I've been playing Pikmin 3 quite a bit too.

To me it feels more like a Super Mario World that's less obtuse and frustrating. Still nowhere near my favorite platformer, but it is enjoyable. I just think I'd like it more if I could save after a level. Actually, that's my qualm with a lot of Super Nintendo games before they went portable...

Yeah, I've always disliked that aspect of DKC (even though I like it as a whole).

Still not as bad as Crash Bandicoot though, where you can only save in bonus stages, that is if you actually make it to the end of the bonus stage (as they get progressively more difficult as the game goes on).

Super Mario World wasn't actually that frustrating to me...

And I hear ya. Not being able to save whenever you want is a huge pain.

Moreover, the game lets you save after you collect a gem or key. It only saves the fact that you earned the collectable, though, not that you cleared the level. So if you quit and then resume, you'll have to go through the level again even if you already have its gem. I kind of like the game's evil save system, in a masochistic sort of way.

Anyway, I'm currently playing the PS2 game Shinobi, downloaded from the PlayStation Store. So far, the controls are tight and the game runs about as smooth as Hotsuma's flowing red scarf.
