If you've actually been following them, Game-A-Day stuff will now be moving here.
|02:30 pm - Game-A-Day: Redux V.02 - Gunbird [ARC]|
I don't know what it is about H.Shooters that I hate and V.Shooters that I love, but this V.Shooter I love even more than usual. It's funny. It looks fantastic (but then again, so do most Psikyo games). It's funny. It controls fantastically. It's funny. Each character has their own shooting style instead of having to choose in-game, making all the characters more than just cosmetic and no longer having you worry about losing your progress by a mistiming. It's funny, especially if you have a partner so the characters interact (personally, I just set a player 2 and turn on the cheats to make them invincible and then forget them). It's got a bit of bullet hell to it, but eh. It's a good, fun game.

|05:48 pm - Game-A-Day: Redux V.02 - Demon's Crest [SNES]|
This is a spin-off of the Ghost's 'n Goblins series staring a demon that's supposed to be, i dunno, the real devil, or something. He can hover using his wings, spit fire, hold onto walls, cast spells, and change his element with collected crests so he can do other stuff too. It's a bit open, like Mega Man X, with you able to choose where to go next and backtrack to stages to open new areas. It even has some mode 7 effects that are pretty cool. Would probably be even more impressive if I hadn't already seen it in Illusion of Gaia, among other games, though. It's real fun, and actually not as hard as the series it's branched off of. I really recommend it.

God, even more proof that EA is incapable of putting out a good portable game. Also more proof that FPS games shouldn't be on handhelds. Or at least not on something slightly more powerful than a SNES. It's slow. It's clunky. It's ugly. It sounds...okay, I guess. It's based on a franchise I hate. Fuck this game.

|10:09 pm - Game-A-Day: Redux V.02 - Twofer!|
Irem Skins Game [SNES]
The title is a lie! It's not about skin, or about people showing skin, but is instead about...golf. And as far as golf games go I guess it's...alright. The swing meter goes super fast though. Hard to get it down.
A puzzler/platformer that features a short, stocky prince that jumps floatily and has a stubby little dirk. Not...not that great. I really couldn't get that far because of that stupid stiletto.

Came home too late for a Game-A-Day entry. I have no excuse for last night, though.
...Either way, I'll try to make two entries tomorrow.

|11:47 pm - Game-A-Day: Redux V.02 - The Sims (various editions) [GBA]|
Gott, EA can't put out a good portable to save their lives. All of the portable Sims are awful. That's all I can say about them. Fuck these games.

|09:28 pm - Game-A-Day: Redux V.02 - Lester the Unlikely [SNES]|
Okay, I know that the main character is supposed to be nerdier than Urkel and that how he moves is supposed to reflect that, but the controls are either awkward, clumsy, convoluted, or any combination of the three and it's hard to fight through them. And the puzzles range from obscure to simplistic.
Furthermore, I had a lot of problems with the sound cutting out. Fuck this game.
