I finished R-Type Final on normal. Ok, technically I only beat 1 final level out of 3 but hey, the credits rolled on! :D

I am not an expert on that type of game but it was fine. Thankfully, you unlock unlimited continues as you play
so if like me you're not a pro, you still stand a chance of make it through the game if you're persistant enough.
Oh and the credit song is called "Proud of you".  :D

Anyway I don't know if sometime you had the impression that Shmup are dumb, that you just shoot stuff until it dies while avoiding bullet.
Well, not at all here. XD
There are actually some strategies to choose when dealing with the game challenges.
Do I keep using the charge shots to deal with the enemies. Do I instead use the force (weapon) on the ship to regularly shoot upgrade bullets instead?
Do I detach the Force to use its own special bullet or ram it in the enemy or both?
And if the detached force home in on the enemy, do I let it do to and do my best meanwhile not trying to get hit by stray bullets?
Do I risk using the screen clearing attack that takes forever to build up to kill a boss that is visibly almost dead?
How do I deal with waves of enemies coming from both the front and the back?

And then there is that spiral made of enemies, half of them being indestructible that you enter from backward (attack wise)
and you have to make it to the center to destroy its core. XD

Pro tips : charge shots that actually pierces walls are lifesavers in some spots.
At the very least it makes the second boss much more simpler. :)
Also, the Tentacle Force is very wide and will block lot of stuff for you.

especially that unavoidable stomping shit in his second form, I had to not only avoid every attack from form one, but also trigger form 2 against a wall so I had time to land as many boomerang and whip hits as possible before getting pinned against the opposite wall.

Just for the record, Holy Water is superior for the second form. But yeah, not sure if you can dodge the stomp. XD

I lately finished the visual novel Hatoful Boyfriend as well as its DLC Holyday Star.
Long story short, "Dating pigeons is nothing but suffering and madness". Ah, um yes, it's good.
The premise is that you're an human girl in pigeon boy school and you have the possibility to date them (or at least try to).
Several choices in the story are given for that purpose and each person you may date have a ending you can unlock.
Some of thems have two and which one of them you get depends on if you built up the appropriate stat or not.
As you clear the ending, the archives fill up with info about the overall story.
Also, a final route unlocks when you got all of the endings which is justified by needing to know about all of the characters and setting for this one.
I had to consult a guide to know how to get some of the last endings and repeating the story take a while
but there's a fast forward option as well as some choices in the game that allow you to skip some unneeded story parts.
Also, the final scenario is definitively worth the read. The author tops her(?)self.
Expect various emotions including some you would not expect from a dating game with a seemingly silly premise.

The DLC is an alternate storyline that happens during the holydays.
The first few chapters are there to present some new characters and then put you  afterward in the Holyday Star scenario.
There are a few choices in the DLC but they seems more of a afterthought
and more like to check if you paid attention to the story before you continue forward.
The story here is linear but good.
As you clear the scenarios, mini scenarios do unlocks.
They might be a few spoilers in the cut content one but otherwise feel free to play them as they appear.

On a more personal level, Anghel is one of my favorite. :D

Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 (PS2) : I am now a true Dynasty Warrior Gundam! I saved scum to do it though.

So, there's more than what's listed at https://tcrf.net/Super_Mario_RPG:_Legend_of_the_Seven_Stars#Regional_Differences ?

***Is having a look quick look at the link***

YES! I mean, you have no idea. There are a lot of difference in the dialogue. Culex deserves a page of its own.

Damn. I couldn't imagine. I'm lucky to beat a game that takes 50 hours.

A single session will generally last less than an hour although if you try to min-max it can last longer.
I just played over and over and over over a long period of time, taking breaks when I got burned or got everything until the next expansion.
It was a marathon.
But if you want a better idea, check the Let's Plays by Northernlion. :)

Afterbirth+

Sorry, there are no playlist for Rebirth and Afterbirth? XD

Clyde Mandelin has started a stream on checking the differences between the differences between the English and Japanese version of Super Mario Rpg.
If you're interested, check it out. ^-^

After over 700 hours of gameplay (about a month), I finally got all of the achievements for the Binding of Isaac Afterbirth +. It's being long. Like, really long. It was tiring at times. At other times, it was cool or epic. There was times I totally cheesed the game and ended up with bullets the size of a whole room or invincibility for several minutes in a boss fight or being able to heal back to full health after being hit a few times. Other times I had to squeeze everything I had to make it like rerolling myself to heal or pushing a coin out of the way by dropping and picking up pills.

And now, I am not sure what's next. XD
Maybe I'll take a break before trying another game? XD

I am playing The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+. Slowly but surely, I am clearing all of the achievement.
I cleared the last ingame challenge on my list, the Ultra Hard challenge which is so because among a few things, no hearts drop which means you have to find alternate ways to heal.
I did it so by rerolling my run several times thanks to the power of the D Infinity.
Yeah, at this point the game get crazy like that. XD

Bowser is writing haikus to himself.

Not in the Japanese version. :P

But yes, it has some great music. The weapons Boss Theme, the penultimate Boss Battle theme, the Lost Woods/Wriggler Forest theme,...

I like Mario's getting mad from that little kid who thinks Geno is way cooler than him. :P
I also like how in the Japanese version, when the spring shy guys things realize that Mario is there to stop their party,
after saying thing like "Know your place" and "You're a bad person", the last one only say "MUSTACHE"! XD

Maybe it's just a matter of entering in contact with something that personnally click with you?
Here is a video of someone who did find something that did.

I don't know what exactly would fit  for you. That being said, perhaps you might want to consider watching Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann?
Or maybe play Creepy Castle?

Regardless, life will go on and wounds will heal. Take care of yourself.

A while ago, I finished The Final Fist in Creepy Castle and it was a great to the game (to season 1 of the game?).
You have to beat a few hard boss at first to get to the final battle but once you're there,
that's a super cool battle followed by a nice ending. ^-^

I also finished Shantae Half Genie Hero, the main mode anyway and it's good although I wished it was longer.
It took something like 9-10 hours to clear the game according to my save file, maybe a bit more?

Anyway, the game is fun although a bit on the easy side due to all the stuff made available to you to make your life easier.
If you think you're tough, skip it.  ;)
Anyway, the music is good, the game looks good and there is a high level of detail in the graphics.
Lot of transformation dances.
The story is basically "Shantae: the TV show". :P
Anyway, I recommend it. ^^

Also, for some reason, Giga Mermaid seems to be popular?

I have beaten [[https://youtu.be/Vj_lVOokdU0 Creepy Castle]] and am waiting for The Final Fist update.

Creepy Castle is a 2D action-adventure game (metroidvania?).
The protagonist, Moth (a moth) have heard that something suspicious is going on at said castle and investigate it.
Pretty soon, he learn that there is a thing called the Heartbreaker.

While you explore the castle, you will face opponent. At first, you will trade blow with them, both you and the opponent taking damage.
But that going for the whole game would be boring so mini games will randomly happens, giving both the risk and the potential of attacking or be attacked without any counter attacks.
For example, one of the mini-game is a quick draw where you must push the button as soon as the signal is given.
While the battle system did eventually get tiring in the late game, there is some creativity that was put in there that goes further than just easier or harder, slower on faster.
It especially show on the Pursuit mini-game which requires you to get stars without being hit by the enemies.
Some versions have enemies hidden as harmless objects and you must account for that. Some versions don't have a maze to trap you.

The visual is, from what I have heard, inspired by the Spectrum ZX graphics. 2D sprites with limited color palettes but the game make good use of them.
The in-battle and cutscene graphics have good more-detailed sprites.
I know not everyone like old school looks but I like it. :)

The music is good. There is a surprising amount of variety including rock, elevator music and Beethoven. :P

The story is good. After the original scenario, more scenario opens up, allowing you to see what happens overall.
Even the "free modes" where you play as characters you unlocked have things to shows.
Most of the story is told through text. I hope you don't mind reading. XD
The writing is good though. I hope you have a dictionnary nearby. :P
Several of the scenarios ending are great. Scenario 2B (Lost) is awesome and perhaps the stuff of legend.
It in any case didn't go in the way I expected.
I mean, despite the cutesy, some of the themes touched in the game are
Spoiler:
wether it worth even trying in a world that apparently can't be improved or saved? Is the joys you find in life worth all the suffering you go through?

The game isn't particularly hard but because enemies and items don't respawn, you must explore properly and make the most of your ressources without wasting.
Exploring is the main challenge of the game but some of the game scenario give you switch puzzles
The Dark Souls Depths scenario deserve a mention as, since there is no items, save points heal you but respawn enemies.
You must thus find a way to find stuff or make permanent changes in the game and return to a save point (not always the one you came from) alive.

Anyway, I am happy I got this game. It's not the greatest game of all time but it's a good game that deserves more recognition than it currently have.
Now, if The Final Fist update could come out, the last scenario ended on a cliffhanger! XD

The main character you play as is such a complete douchebag that you want him to die.

I disagree. While yes Vincent os flawed and honestly is an idiot when it comes to relashionships,
he is otherwise a cool guy overall.
That being said, I guess it's a matter of opinion.

-- specifically the endless clanging of a churchbell that just never shuts the fuck up.

Looks like you tended to get stuck at the end of the levels.  ;)
More seriously, I didn't have a problem with it. I also liked the various classical music remix in the game.
Also, the game playing Hallelujah after a boss fits so much! XD

I also liked how the story go crazy at times making you wonder WTH is going on.

Anyway that game was more my thing than your  I guess.

Did you know that there was competitive play of the game Catherine? I didn't, at least until now. It is epic.
If you want to have a look, here is a link.
I don't know how long the videos will be up or if they'll end up on youtube or something
but at the time of this post, they are still here.
