The main problem with the Saturn (for Western audiences at least) is that the vast majority of its best games were Japan-only releases, most of which never got localized.

Lately it’s been lots and lots of Minecraft, especially since the Nether Update came out.  Not sure hjow useful Netherite actually is, but the new Nether is pretty cool.

In earlier Animal Crossing games (where you had to manually save regularly, as opposed to the autosaving in New Horizons) Mr. Resetti would appear if you closed the game without saving, and would lecture you (often rather rudely) about not saving your game.  In New Horizons, it is implied (but not directly confirmed) Read more

Just be glad they don’t have Mr. Resetti in this game.

To be fair they never sold any tickets, and for PAX West at least those frequently sell out quickly, so it’s not a great idea to be booking flights or hotels without having tickets secured anyway.

Emerald City ComicCon (originally scheduled for early March, planned to be rescheduled in August) also got cancelled yesterday.  I suspect it’ll be a while before large scale events resume at this rate.

I guess I’m lucky because the game basically just gave me Marshal and Judy (Marshal was the first one to show up at the campsite, Judy just moved into one of the vacant house sites one day.) Read more

Unfortunately, that may be the only way to keep the install size down to reasonable levels.  As is the Destiny 2 install on PC is over 100 GB, If someone has only a 500GB SSD in their system adding too much more content is going to risk running out of space.

As much as I’ve enjoyed the time I spent playing Destiny 2, I just uninstalled it from my system.  I’ve moved on to other things, and don’t see anything likely to bring me back here.  That, plus the sheer amount of storage space the game takes up, doesn’t seem worth it.

Forget it, I’m not going to Harv’s Island, regardless of what rewards might be there.  Harv is creepy beyond belief.

Rygar is probably one of my favorite NES games, but man it could be janky at times.

Given the fact that Nintendo of America is in an area that is still under lockdown they probably don’t have the resources available to put together a full Direct right now.  Note that the Nintendo Direct Mini that came out at the end of March and the Mario Maker 2 update both got announced in a similar fashion with no Read more

Keep in mind that they’re selling the engine here (in this case a new major revision of Unreal Engine), not the console hardware. It’s impressive to see some of the effects they can pull off, but it’s a lot easier to make and optimize a vertical slice like this than it is to do it for a full game. You tend to end up Read more

Hollow Knight is a $15 game that’s better than a lot of $60 ones I’ve played.  Never managed to finish it (I’m generally not great at games like that) but thoroughly enjoyed what I did play of it.

Probably way too much Animal Crossing, still working on some projects on my brother’s Minecraft realm, and if I have some time I might try messing with my makeshift VR racing rig (Oculus Quest with a Quest Link cable and a cheap Thrustmaster wheel) some more.

Unfortunately I think the only thing that keeps them from losing 11 of those games is if Gretchen Whitmer bans them from playing.

Another impact is that their repair service is shut down indefinitely. I’ve got a Switch I sent in for repair (all games were failing to start with generic “The software was closed due to an error” messages) in early March that has been, as far as I know, sitting in a warehouse in Redmond since I sent it in, with no Read more

Not sure if I still have it, but I think somewhere buried in my stuff is an original copy of Civilization still in the shrinkwrap (but probably not collector-quality.) I remember they were the ones who originally published the Team17 Worms games. Worms 2 remains to this day one of the best hotseat multiplayer games Read more

I guess I lucked out and got Marshal as the first visitor to the campsite.  Of course, I had no idea he was one of the “cool” villagers until I did some looking around on the Internet.
