|5 50%||Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (1993) - Jul 26, 2021
"Rammed my head against this one for a bit when I downloaded Castlevania Requiem so I could replay Symphony of the Night - seems ok but wasn’t massively grabbed by it."
|3 22%||Iconoclasts (2018) - Jul 22, 2021
"Couldn’t get too into it; set it aside after a couple hours. Not sure if it was the story/aesthetic or the gameplay. Probably a mix of both."
|7 82%||Immortals Fenyx Rising (2020) - Jun 28, 2021
"Definitely and not even embarrassed to be a poor man’s Breath of the Wild - not just in its open world design and climbing/gliding mechanics, but even with the vaults being shrine stand-ins, four more major dungeons at each corner of the map, final battle in the map’s center, etc. It’s a fun time, although I did tire a bit of the endless puzzles and found the combat a bit button-mashy. I was glad to play it but also kind of glad to wrap it up and move on after 60ish hours."

"Fun but SO hard!"
|6 68%||Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II - Rogue Leader (2001) - May 25, 2021
"This was a great early purchase for the GameCube, the best realization at the time of some of the flying scenes from the films. Don’t go back to it too often though."
|4 35%||Call of Duty: WWII (2017) - Apr 07, 2021
"(As always, I don’t care about FPS multiplayer; rating is campaign only.) Had to sort of drag myself over the finish line with this one. Starts well but the missions quickly become pretty samey with assorted gray and brown forests and bombed out towns. Agonizing stealth sections in a couple parts. A few pretty good set pieces though."
|6 68%||Shantae and the Seven Sirens (2019) - Mar 24, 2021
"It’s hard for me not to enjoy a Metroidvania with smooth controls, a nice sized world to explore and collect stuff in, pretty good music etc. But something about this one does feel just a touch bare bones and through the motions - the bosses mostly seem pretty basic, and it’s hard to get excited collecting my 50th Metroidvania double jump."
|6 68%||Pokémon Trading Card Game (1996) - Mar 13, 2021
"Ah, junior high. Play Pokémon cards at school, rush home, watch Dragonball Z, whack off to broadband speed softcore internet porn, rinse and repeat. Fuckin golden age"
|6 68%||Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot (2020) - Mar 06, 2021
"I enjoy the basic journey through all of DBZ with anime-accurate graphics and the power fantasy aspect of flying around and punching dudes for six digits of HP. But there’s way too many fetch quests and nonsense filler in the menus and ultimately the battles just kind come down to doing the same combos, beams and dodges over and over and over and over, from Raditz straight through to Buu."
|7 82%||Cyber Shadow (2021) - Feb 28, 2021
"Pretty slick take on NES Ninja Gaiden; real hard in parts while compensating by being pretty generous with checkpoints and infinite lives. Music is lit yo, I was rockin’ out all DUN NA NA NA NA NAAAAA DOO DO DOO DUN NA NA"
