Dragon Quest 3 (SFC) - Was pleasantly surprised to see the English translation on my retropi. Haven't played this in ages. I don't really have a suitable way to play the GBC one.

Sega Ages Phantasy Star - Been waiting forever for someone to update this with auto-mapping. I just wish they'd done the Saturn remake with the awesome artwork instead of the Master System one which looks bunk IMO (other than the first person scrolling).

Mega Drive
Chiki Chiki Boys - Just cleared this a few minutes ago (unless you count buying the 1-ups a continue rather than a life - not sure which was is considered a clear or not).

EDIT: Never mind - I just no missed Chiki Chiki Boys. 491,330.

Kingdom Hearts 3

Fun game, but the cutscenes set a new bar for mindnumbing stupidity.

I think the DS version really opens up on the 5th chapter since you can actually control your entire party in this one but I still prefer the original 8 bit one the most.

Travis strikes again: No more heroes - Just finished the game. I enjoyed it but a lot of the sub games dragged and lasted a bit to long. I also wish there was a bit more VO work in the game. I know its a budget title though so I didn't jump into the game with huge expectations.

The NES version was a well crafted game, even compared to the DS game. I like the game overall (especially the 3rd chapter as Tornkeo/Taloon where you are trying to have your own store).

Funny, I found that to be the slowest part for me when I played the DS version. I just wanted to fight and explore, but that was a long time ago so my tastes may have changed

DQ IV & V for DS are two of the best RPGs ever, IMO. VI is great too, but isn't quite on the level of the other two.

Nintendo 2DS

- Heroes of Ruin
Finished, at Level 27, with 100% completion. Pretty good game, and, down the road, I may play through it again, using a different character class (maybe ranged weapons instead of a melee fighter), but, when contemplating that, I'm also reminded of a video game review I once read where the author commented that playing through a long game twice, with different characters, is like doing your homework again with a different colored ink.
- Mario Kart 7
Mucked around again in the Mirrored Circuit for a while and won another cup (4/8 of those completed now). It was actually easier to win the races, since I haven't been playing the game for a while, because I'm beginning to forget where the turns/hazards are "supposed" to be, so, my experiences/memories on the un-mirrored tracks don't mess me up as much on the mirrored tracks as they used to, as I'm now responding more to what I see as it comes, rather than what I've been conditioned to expect.
- Nintendo Badge Arcade
1,245 badges and counting . . .
- Pokemon Rumble World
Still 66th rank with 589 Pokemon caught. 191 Pokediamonds accumulated, so close to the 200 I need for that expensive balloon that I can almost taste it!
- Pokemon Shuffle
Finally toppled that damn Deoxys, but, of course, I wasn't able to catch that critter when I did so.
- SwapDoodle
