I played Pilotwings Resort a little while ago. Hang glider is best.
It sucks compared to Pilotwings 64. Only one place, only characters are miis, no birdman, and all flights have a top limit of 6 minutes.
(at least I may be competent at it though)
Been going through my Steam backlog when I have the time to play after work. I'm just gonna mention the ones worth playing:
Desolate - STALKER had drunken sex with the combat system from Condemned and birthed a game where you can beat people and mutant wolves to death with a stick while staying sober after drinking a shit ton of vodka.
Homefront: The Revolution - A remake that's better than the original game but animations they put in for executions and the like could of been sped up because why the fuck do I have to gently drop a Korean soldier after stabbing him when his buddies are getting ready to take potshots at me?
Resident Evil 6 - Playing through Leon on easy difficulty because fuck it, I need a slow, enjoyable burn. Still hate the story idea of "Let's keep the zombie viruses and release it in a city to contain the truth" along with a vague ass Illuminati sounding organization because out of stories one could make, that just sounded completely stupid as fuck vs having the group involved with the game being one that was lead to by the then last good villain before Resident Evil 7 was a thing.
Maximum Action - I like playing a John Woo simulator that lets me dual wield heavy guns like Rambo knock-off.
Exanima - Fun, janky melee physics combat. Still waiting for the dev to make an update that adds more maps.
What's this "Steam" thing everyone talks about?
Some kind of online vidya store?
Last few days I wasted my life on RDR 2, then I chose to start all over again because I found out there's shit you could miss. But then I uninstalled the game to save space and partly because I am autistic in getting a mare as my starter due to my first horse growing on me and I want to try to copy the details as closely as possible. Aside from that, I been fiddling with the special edition of Skyrim in replaying as my first character for the game when I got it on PC, albeit with some mods because Bethesda couldn't have noses and the like given a name.
It's actually a money machine for a fat man that got rich off some video game where you play as a bearded glasses man with a gun. Fat man needs that money for the snack bar.
Chrono Trigger (DS).
One part is like that Star Trek TNG episode - Robo is recovered hundreds of years later after staying behind in the past.
(said TNG episode was referenced in that Futurama episode)
Blood: Fresh Supply. Using it to play the Death Wish mod and so far, the mod is as good as I remembered a few years back and the Fresh Supply port of Blood isn't bad.
Revisited my middle school years in playing some browser game called AdventureQuest after seeing its developer get their own general discussion thread on Kiwi Farms. Strangely managed to get some fun out of it but I can see just how unbalanced parts of the game are with all the changes they try to make.
It may sound geeky, but I've been playing Bravely Default (an RPG from the early '10s) after not playing it for awhile.
All the summon sequences are modern vehicle looking beasts in dreary wastelands, which kind of clashes with the game's fantasy feel.
I was just playing Star Fox 64. During that time, near the end, I was thinking to myself
"Why is a N64 game from 1997 more graphically impressive than an actual HD game from 2016!?"
(I'm of course, comparing Star Fox 64 to Star Fox Zero, a game with many, many problems)
Finally did it: defeated the final boss of Bravely Default, and finally finished that game.
For no reason, I played a demo of a fan made Duck Hunt remake on Newgrounds that never got turned into a full game for unknown reasons
Spoiler: What the finished game would have looked like
(As far as I can tell, the demo only had normal mode and Rambo. And also the ability to shoot the dog and Donald Duck, with pixelated gore considering this is Newgrounds we're talking about.)
Been playing back into Skyrim the last two weeks on the Special Edition using the earliest save file I find from Oldrim. Pretty much used some mods to rip the face off that save and import it to a fresh, intro save of the Special Edition so I could redo the adventures of the Dragonborn I used for it. Far as the game goes in main quest, I'm pretty much half-way done. Also played some Arena as well just to try and beat it but so far, I'm just going through the dungeon that has the first mcguffin piece I need to beat the game.
Bought Cyberpunk 2077 a couple days before release. Didn't really give much fucks over the leaks in how they disappointed people because I just wanted to try the end product on PC. Likely enjoyed it more than most people that played it on PS4.
Donkey Kong Land (GB) - my copy is a "banana yellow game pak".
Either the controls are kind of awkward, or I kind of suck at it.
Looking at my Steam backlog to give some games a go. Been binging on it with Tekken 7 in trying out DLC fighters such as an African-American master of Wing Chun and a Thai kickboxer whose swole as fuck in looking like 100% pure muscle. Also giving other games like Dishonored 2 a go and looking back at the original version of Skyrim to see how that was.
Ecco: The Tides Of Time (yet again)
New Vegas. The NCR and Benny can wait. I need to finish thr DLC and get the old world version of the Courier's Duster, and that means waiting off until I get idolized by the Strip.
F-Zero GX. Just beat the Sapphire Cup on standard (in reality, hard mode while "basic mode" is actually standard mode), and I'm now one third of the way to unlocking Diamond Cup.
(I don't think I'll be able to unlock the AX Cup, or any of the AX racers themselves, because they're unlocking requirements range from borderline to (nowadays) literally impossible.)
If this game was released today, game critics would call it "the Dark Souls of racing games."
