Golf Story - Was sick this week so one night I couldn't sleep and I finally beat the last course Blue Dunes. It took me around 20 tries to beat the final course after I beat match play on my first try, it was real tough.

Penguin Wars - Got this for Christmas, I always liked the og arcade version, it is pretty true to the original arcade release with plenty of extra modes and levels.


Strikers 1945 Plus - I enjoy revisiting some neo games on the ps4 and switch and I've been playing the caravan 5 min mode, I think I'm around the top 30.

Snk Heroines - Meh

PS4
King of Fighters IV - Since there was an update, I loaded this up to check it out

Nintendo 2DS
- Final Fantasy Explorers
Level 195 now, but, my enthusiasm for this title is starting to waver (I've put in almost 190 hours since I bought it, yikes!) I believe that I've unlocked all of the content, so, all I'm doing anymore is just grinding for rare item drops, mostly from bosses, to forge weapons/armor that I haven't made yet, which is pretty repetitive.
- Nintendo Badge Arcade
Still collecting them damn badges, even though I met, and passed my goal of 1,000 of them (1,073 now). Almost got a full NES Punch-out! set the other day, which excited me more than it should.
- Paper Mario: Sticker Star
Cleared the first world and am working on the second (desert). Still can't decide whether I like or hate this game. The combat really rubs me the wrong way. There are no experience points, so, all you get for winning fights is coins and sometimes stickers, and all you can buy with coins is more stickers, and you have to constantly use said stickers to fight the battles, so, it's all kind of a pointless wheel of busy work in my opinion, thus, I try to avoid fights whenever I can. Last night, I ran into 5 Para-Goombas that had a useless Toad cornered, and they offered to let him go for $25, instead of fighting, and I gladly gave those flying mushrooms the fucking money. Normally, I'd mercilessly beat the shit out of monsters in RPGs that try an extortion stunt like that, but, in this game, I'll weasel out of any battle I can, even if I have to pay to do it. I can stomach grinding, in moderation, if my character is actually getting stronger from doing so (like in Final Fantasy Explorers above), but Mario doesn't improve that way in this game (only through rare upgrade items, which are usually found in the stages themselves, not gotten from enemies). I really like papercraft art, so this game's aesthetic strongly appeals to me, but, man, I could really do without the excessive turn-based combat.
- Pilotwings Resort
Cleared some more plane and jetpack missions (and unlocked the turbo jet plane). Really don't like the hang glider though--riding air currents is too damn slow/boring.
- Pokemon Rumble World
66th rank and 585 Pokemon caught.
- Pokemon Shuffle
265 stages cleared, 418 Pokémon got.
- SwapDoodle

Nintendo DS
- Metroid Prime Pinball

Just wait until the wiggler world, that was my breaking point. Needless repetition for the sake of padding really got to me.
