    Spreadsheet updated.

    I've finished with the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection after about 10 hours of play. It's a very mixed bag which is more notable for its tour of pre Neogeo SNK games than any particularly exciting content. I did appreciate seeing how arcade games have developed over the years in terms of features and gameplay.

    I completed about half the games on offer and tried every one of them to see what they were about. I had to make heavy use of the rewind feature to make it through some extremely hard bullet hell sections in some shooters. Some of the shooters have that lose your powers / it's basically game over thing going on. On average most games were 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

    Street Smart and Ikari Warriors 3 are absolutely dire. Non one should ever play them. Even the very early Sasuke Vs Commander - basically an extremely basic ninja themed space invaders that looks like a Vic 20 game was more enjoyable.

    The collection is a bit too heavy on early twin stick Ikari Warriors style games for my liking but I did enjoy playing through the games and looking at some lovely sprite work and listening to some good tunes. One for the curious retro fan but I'd only recommend it at 50% off as you won't be in a hurry to go back to more than three or four of the games. The arcade versions are quite a bit better than the home console versions which was also interesting to see. Games have really come a long way in the last 30 years.

    Psycho Soldiers has one of the funniest theme tunes I've ever heard.

    Having really enjoyed Dead Cells despite hating previous rogue likes I decided to buy Enter the Gungeon. 🦆

    Having given it a run I think DC was anomaly. I will try it again but this is likely to be my first failure. (Ignoring RDR2 which I haven’t touched at all. Although I know I will play that at some point).

    251 games completed by everyone so far. I wonder if we can reach 1000 by the end of the year?

    It has been a metronomic 75 games completed each month thus far, so 900 is looking more likely unless some of these fuckpumps pull their fingers out. ;)

    Ooooh, I'd forgotten about that! It's very generous of you - I'd be happy to take you up on the offer, and forward it onto the riciest of sandwiches afterward. Might I offer you something in return, UncleLou? Postage for sure.

    Just completed the way remastered!

    Great little game, some frustrating elements, but nothing too frustrating except the bug I encountered that lost me an hours progress.

    Finished Red Dead 2 (just watching the end credits) and i think I’m done with Injustice 2 (both endings and all multiverse). Purely in the interests of getting us to 1,000 games completed.

    Torn between something Dishonored Death of the Outsider and restarting Red Dead 2. Or starting the two games on the list, Ni No Kuni 2 and Blood Bowl 2.

    Dishonored Death of the Outsider it is, game number 3. And the backlog gets that little bit smaller.

    Completed Spider-Man's story. Got a bit left to do if I want to grab the platinum but not sure I can be bothered. Had a lot of fun with the game but it dragged towards the end and took me a few months to get over the line with it. I probably spent too much time on the side quests, there's a load of them and they can get repetitive.

    Next game to go on the list will probably be Final Fantasy X for the Switch. I like to have one Switch game on the go and that should last me awhile.

    Current List:

    🦆 Red Dead Redemption 2
    🦆 Beat Saber
    🦆 Tom Clancy's The Division 2
    🦆 Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
    🦆

    Completed Games:

    🎯 ASTRO BOT Rescue Mission
    🎯 Resident Evil 2 (2019)
    🎯 Anthem
    🎯 Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!
    🎯 Dead or Alive 6
    🎯 Spider-Man

    I think this deserves a gold star ⭐️ for pure masochism.

    @PazJohnMitch really good game that is. I played a few hours of it last year but put it down to wait for the final update.

    I kinda wanna go back to it now :).

    Dragon quest builders is a great great game, but after finishing the first chapter, I kinda wish it was finished and i can just do free play now, instead I have 3 more chapters of similar length lol. Kingdom hearts was a bit of a mistake too... it really doesn’t play well but I am working my way through it an hour at a time.
