Minecraft isn't a game, it is an addiction. :P


In other news, I have ALSO been messing about with Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed again. Had some friends over, and we felt the need for speed, so everybody was super sonic racing. And nobody was cursing about blue shells, because SRT has weapons with a concept of balance that extends beyond "punish the guy in first for being good at racing".

Remember that AM2R is actually a well made fan game! Well, except for the inclusion of "shine spark" tricks for certain items.
Another Metroid 2 Remake is a well-made fan game that feels just like a GBA Metroid game, and I mean no disrespect to DoctorM64's work, BUT...

It is a fucking TERRIBLE adaptation of Metroid 2 that misses the entire goddamn point of the game, and I wish ANY of the other remakes his unintentionally-ironic title refers to had survived so there was a slight chance of people playing something that wasn't shitting all over one of my favorite games(since it had been made abundantly clear years before AM2R released that no one is ever going to play the original in a post-Super world).



Let me be bottom-line this: as a Metroid 2 replacement, AM2R is worse than garbage, it is the equivalent of smearing feces across the Mona Lisa and calling it an improvement. It has negative value to a Metroid 2 fan, the world is objectively a worse place for AM2R's existence, and I will never ever willingly play it ever again.
BUT as bad as AM2R was as a Return of Samus remake, it is lightyears better than Nintendo's official remake was.



And I've been playing Audioshield in my Rift. Shockingly, so has my mom. She has probably played it more than I have lately.

Hey, wait a sec! I'm not his wife, okay? That's just *Hyun-ae's delusions, and she needs to stop forcing them on people.

Wait, am I onscreen? Is this shit really text-only? Where's my avatar controls?
Off-site URL? Static image file? What sort of ass-backwards stone-age system am I connected to?
I just want to note that this, and the ensuing "spambot" nonsense that followed, was perhaps my finest hour.

I'm putting time into Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night right now. It's pretty good.

replaying KH3 on Critical Mode for the first time since I initially played the game right after release.

regular combat is far less forgiving than it is in 2FM Critical.
Why yes, my shift key *IS* broken.

Dread is phenomenal; I interrupted my KH main series replay for my first go-through. Once KH3 is done, I'll likely be doing the pair of replays to get the sub-4 Normal and Hard rewards.
