Bayonetta was great, too. I picked up the Wii U double-pack so one of these days I'll have to play both.

Lollipop Chainsaw is awesome but I'm just having no luck getting the Level 2 High Score. Apparently it's by far the hardest one to get; I spent a few hours on it yesterday and I think I might just have to skip it. I tried all the stuff people online said to do and I came REALLY close but just couldn't hack it. Bummer.

Coming 2022. Indy Pro '22: Rebirth of the Territories - A booking simulator featuring the largest roster of real-life independent pro wrestlers in history!

Dozens of wrestlers from all over the United States have already been revealed as part of the Indy Pro roster, with many more to come. Patreon backers get to name their own custom Arena. Plenty more surprises to come, but the biggest one of all has to be the inclusion of none other than Yours Truly!

That's right, in 2022, you can help (virtually) steer the career of the one and only God of Glam Rock, the Icon of Old-School, the God of Thunder and the Lord of Rock & Roll, as Rikki Roxx makes his long-awaited gaming debut!

Finally picked up a vintage Japanese copy of Keio Flying Squadron 2 for the Sega Saturn this week at a respectable price. I expected the game to be quirky by predictable, but it really exceeded my expectations in every way. There are very few games today that I pop-in for the first time and don't stop playing until completion, but this is one of them. It's an action platformer with light shoot 'em up elements, but it's a real showcase of the Saturn's 2D sprite processing prowess.

Even though all the text and sound recordings are in Japanese, things are simple enough to follow. And I was delighted to discover I had only beaten the game on Easy difficulty (the game actually classifies them as "Monkey," "People, and "Tengu," so now I've got some challenge left for me.

I am not currently playing anything new at the moment because I am waiting for some new metroidvanias of 2022 to come out. As far as my latest purchases; I have been buying a lot of resin for my 3d printing business. I can't wait until the new TMNT game for the Switch to come out.

I feel like I downloaded a Psychonauts game sometime back as a PSN monthly "freebie". Wasn't it a tower storming game of some kind?

While we are on Tower Storming, man I LOVED Plants vs Zombies. How about that theme song? "There's a zombie on your lawn". LMFAO!

It seems you must confuse it with another game becuase now it i has nothing to do with towers.

Coming off the hype of how great the new Ghostbusters movie was, I decided to finally take a swing at Ghostbusters: The Video Game - Remastered (Xbox One). I'd played the original Xbox 360 release a few times and the Wii version once - that's a good game, too, definitely recommend checking out the Wii version - but hadn't gotten around to the Remaster even though I bought it a while ago already. I figured no better time than now! So that's what I've been playing for the last few days.

Right upfront, I'm admittedly not the best person to judge but I don't see a ton that's been "remastered", although perhaps a side-by-side comparison would do well to help me. It definitely doesn't look "bad" at all - I thought the original always looked fine - but it doesn't seem to be miles better than how the original release looked in my memory. There's still some bad lip-syncing and in a few shots the characters still look like they're wearing Ghostbusters masks, but on the whole it was originally a great-looking game and this one looks great, too. I do think they tinkered with the brightness a little bit, and that's great. Sometimes the original was rather dark, especially in the graveyard level. So I'm not sure just how much more polish the graphics got but I definitely can see the game better, so good for them on that.

Otherwise, it's exactly the same game (minus the online component the original had, which I never bothered with anyway). It was a blast to play originally and still is. I sometimes read people saying they wish the shooting controls were better but it always felt fine to me and still does, other than the basic proton stream feels a TINY bit under-powered. But all the other upgrades make up the difference anyway, and switching on the fly between weapons is super-smooth. Some of the fights get pretty chaotic and it can be a chore rushing around to revive your AI partners, but I don't have as much problem with that as some people seem to, to me it's just part of the strategy. The only two parts I've ever had any trouble with still give me the same amount of trouble, the part in the first level where you get swarmed by Candelabra ghosts in a narrow hallway before you've got a good enough weapon to kill them easily so survival is 50/50, and the part in the cemetery where you have to Slime Tether the attacking statues into the gate while avoiding a bunch of other attacks. Those are the only parts in the whole game where I've ever died more than twice, and everything else is pretty easy and straightforward. It's generally pretty easy to stay alive (and keep your partners alive) as long as you keep moving.

All in all, it shows its age in spots - such as the very bare-minimum interaction you have with much of the environment, and how outside of scripted scenes the other Ghostbusters just stand around like silent statues; you just know that if they made it today, you'd be able to hit A and interact with just about everything, at least in the firehouse, and that the other Ghostbusters would each have a couple of stock lines that they'd loop through when nothing else was going on. But it's still a lot of fun and a great game to blow through in a weekend or a couple of days. It's not very long or incredibly challenging but it feels like exactly what it needs to be. I can definitely see how if they'd ever made a sequel it could have been even better, though; especially with at least one proper driving level.

If you've never played it, it's an obvious recommendation for Ghostbusters fans. If you've played the original, it's still worth playing again. If nothing else, you can puff up that Achievement score (they're all exactly the same as the original game's, minus the online-based ones of course).
