Ten Games I Hope to Finish Next update
Posted November 15, 2017 by JoeTheDestroyer

A few months ago, I posted a Game Progress entry that ended with ten games I hoped to finish. Whittling down my backlog has become more of a priority over the last year or so, especially since it's become dishearteningly large. However, I have dropped a lot of titles from it (bear in mind that my backlog also includes books and movies to complete, of which I've ended numerous recently), a few of them were games I hoped to complete.

10: Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4)
Status: I need to restart. I'll probably play through this once I'm done with Mass Effect 2, which is my current focus.

9. 3D Dot Game Heroes (PS3)

Game Progress: The Return
Posted November 12, 2017 by JoeTheDestroyer

Pokemon Go (Android)
A Halloween event rolled in last month, along with five Gen 3 Pokemon: Duskull, Dusclops, Shuppet, Banette and Sableye. I managed to catch all of them, including Pikachu donning a witch's hat.


Legendary: A Game of Heroes (Android)
This one also had a Halloween event that allowed me to nab Wicked Witch. I also managed to amass enough candies to boost her to five star, making her my current most powerful hero.

Mostly, I've taken part in special events rather than furthering the campaign. I am in the fourth segment there, but progress in the campaign doesn't matter much. As I've said before, every challenge there is the same.

Game Progress 10/19/17
Posted October 19, 2017 by JoeTheDestroyer

I bought a refurbished Wii U off Amazon not too long ago, and got three games for it since: Super Mario 3D World, Hyrule Warriors and Xenoblade Chronicles X. I also intend to get Bayonetta 2 and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE soon.

Pokemon Go (Android)
I hatched a Mareep recently, giving me enough candies to get Ampharos. Still no legendaries.

The Winnowing Continues
Posted October 17, 2017 by overdrive

Since I last updated my progress, I've beaten a few games in Bravely Default, Etrian Odyssey Untold: Millennium Girl, Journey to Kreisia, Kirby's Epic Yarn and Rayman Legends. My review is up for BD, it'll be up for Kreisia whenever a certain SOMEONE gets to it in the queue, I'm working on my review for Kirby's Epic Yarn (the ever-so-beloved part where I scrap 5 paragraphs and start over because my current tactic is sucking big-time) and then I'll pound out the review for Rayman Legends.

Goldeneye review (from the year 2000)

Goldeneye
Review by Jerec

Pages and Pages of Text
When starting a mission, if you dont read the 6 pages of text, you might aswell give up. I really didn't like reading so much. But even when I did read, the missions went from being ''too hard'', down to just plain ''hard''.

Graphics (7.3/10)

Seven years ago...
Posted September 26, 2017 by JoeTheDestroyer

My first review went live seven years ago. Breath of Fire III.

The story is I used to submit reviews at GameFAQs in the early 2000s, under the name Bored Gamer. Around 2004, I got tired of writing reviews all of the time, and went on hiatus. I submitted a few now and then, whenever I had time. Fast forward to 2009, I decided I had a lot of time on my hands and I wanted to rediscover some of the games I played in my late teens and early twenties, as well as submit new reviews for them.

Game Progress 9/19/17
Posted September 19, 2017 by JoeTheDestroyer

Simon's Cat: Crunch Time (Android)
Ugh. How do I always manage to hook myself on these mobile licensed puzzlers? I think the daily quests are what sucked me in. Anyway, I made it to level 77. I've only run afoul of a handful of overly hard levels, but I'm sure they'll become more common after I complete level 100.


Victor Vran (PC)
I defeated the trio of demons and made my way through the ruined town, past the monstrous circus and into an ice cave. From there, I'm supposed to find a creature called Apocalypse. From what I've gathered, the campaign is winding down.

Return to Andromeda
Posted September 16, 2017 by jerec

Wow. This game took a beating, critically. The initial release was pretty buggy. My own progress was stopped when a mission wouldn't generate the next objective, leaving me with no way to progress, and the last manual save too long ago.

Coming back to it now, I decided to start over with Sara Ryder instead of Scott. I pushed through parts of the early game that were familiar to me, and eventually reached the unknown. The game's been patched a fair bit, and it looks and plays a lot better than I remember.

Aphelion Episode Two: Wings of Omega (360)
Completed it and wrote a review. tl;dr- It's not worth playing, and somehow less satisfying than its predecessor.


Simon's Cat: Crunch Time (Android)
I needed a match-3 game to pass the time, and this fit the bill. Its visuals are nice and crisp, and it's a charming license title. However, the game often puts you in scenarios you practically can't win, in an attempt to get you to make use of its freemium elements (I haven't paid a red cent yet). Right now, I'm somewhere in the 50s.


Victor Vran (PC)
I defeated my friend, found the missing queen and spoke to a spirit about the Well of Worlds. Right now, I have to take out some demons who are potential threats to the town.

The Winnowing: Part II
Posted September 12, 2017 by overdrive

On one hand, you could say I'm 3/4 of the way there, as my plan is to have one game that I currently play in each of these four groups: 360, Android (ie: my Kemco niche), ROM and other system (ie: PS/PS2, 3DS/DS, Wii, Steam). And I have one game in each of the first three groups! On the other hand, in that "other system" group, I still need to narrow it down from 6 games to 1, so, yeah, there's a little bit of work I still have to do...

So, where am I?

XBOX 360: Rayman Legends -- the main goal is to start the Dark Souls games, but I didn't want to deal with something that work-intensive while trying to finish a bunch of other games, so I decided to work with this one. Which was a good decision, as this game is really awesome with a lot of cool features.

Game Progress and 10 Games I Hope to Finish Next
Posted September 03, 2017 by JoeTheDestroyer

Aphelion Episode Two: Wings of Omega (360)
Started, and I'm more than halfway through it. In the course of my progress, I ran into episode one's final boss, Selus. He's a pushover now, as are almost all of the bosses in ep. 2. In fact, this whole game is pretty dumbed down from its predecessor.

They did make a few improvements, though. For instance, there's more than three territories to explore this time around, plus a teleporter that appears next to some save points that allows you to fast travel. The devs also retooled the ability chart so that it's leaner. However, the game is still boring, and it's somehow less interesting than the first episode.


Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening (PS3)
Finished it, wrote a review. Thank goodness this is out of the way.

Dragon Age: Origins Progress 8/11
Posted August 11, 2017 by JoeTheDestroyer

Victor Vran (PC)
I forgot to mention that I started this game recently. I'm not far, though. I reached the inside of some dungeon and turned the game off. I'll resume it later.


Dragon Age: Origins (PS3)
I reached the temple that held the urn of sacred ashes and fought my way through dozens of gangs of cultists. The going wasn't always easy because a lot of them had mages in their parties. Dealing with the mages was easy at the start of this mission, but it grew more worrisome before long because some of them could freeze and nuke any characters threatening them.

Pokemon Go (Android)
Legendaries are out! For now, only Articuno and Lugia are available as raid bosses (although the former is going away soon). My wife and I tried our hand at Articuno and got our asses savagely handed to us. Though there were other players in the area, none of them joined us. Sad day.

Dead by Daylight: Makes You Feel Bad for the Killers
Posted July 28, 2017 by pickhut

I have been playing online multiplayer titles for years and years and years. I have been through several Halos, GTAs, a couple niche titles, big titles, and what not. I have received my share of "hate" messages and mic "harassment" because the other players were mad that they lost. This is to be expected when you dive into online multiplayer. I have accepted this.

I want to review them, but I don't want to play them.
Posted July 26, 2017 by JoeTheDestroyer

I wanted my main focus to be Dragon Age: Origins over the next few weeks. However, two games that I've been playing lately have been taunting me. Both of them are awful, but I feel that it's my sworn duty to soldier through these abominations and give the readers my $0.02.

I started this Symphony of the Night-inspired indie game. I'm not far, though. Expect a staff review eventually.


Axiom Verge (PC)
Burned through this wonderful Metroid love letter and completed the game with 97% of the map filled in. Whew.


Doorways: Prelude (PC)
Formerly known as Doorways: Chapter 1 & 2. I started this and haven't gotten very far, but it's piqued my interest so far. I just started chapter 1.

Impressions thus far of Fire Pro Wrestling World Early Access
Posted July 16, 2017 by JoeTheDestroyer

I almost never buy Early Access products. I made an exception with Fire Pro Wrestling World for two reasons:

1. I adore this franchise.
2. I've been begging for FPW on Steam for ages, mostly because of Steam Workshop.
