    Just beat Samus Returns with a little over 40% item completion and about 8 hours and 45 minutes of game time. I have to say, this is an awesome game, and I'll be sure to pick it up in a couple of months (after I've been to three conventions and the SNES Classic/Mario Odyssey have been paid) (unless one of the conventions turns out to be a disappointment, then I'll get this and Dishonored DotO immediately) .

    Just beat Final Fantasy XIII trilogy by finishing Lightning Returns. (sitting through the end credits right now)

    Overall love this trilogy and the final game. It is one of those select few games that give you that "bittersweet" feeling once you beat it.:wub:

    Next on my list is PERSONA V !! So hyped to finally play this. This will be my GOTY fo sho!

    Edit: It totally was!

    I finished a second constellation and made progress in another in Cosmic Express - really fun puzzle game.

    I got gold in the first three cups on Mario Kart Double Dash at 50cc, and in the first cup at 100cc.

    I made a bit more progress in Metroid Samus Returns, and beat the second metroid, before getting distracted.

    I defeated the Swine Prince and the Necromancer in Darkest Dungeon, the former on the first try, while for the latter it was my second try, the previous party was destroyed by the Necromancer itself after the Collector got them by surprise - I didn't even know such a monster existed.

    In Darkest Dungeon I defeated the Sodden Crew and the Hag - this one with three characters on Death's Door - moreover, I brought my first Hero, Dismas, to level 6!

    The image speaks for itself.

    I got the true ending on the first try
    I did 23/26 requests
    Got 49% of the trophies
    I got 11 Social Links
    I unlocked all hangout spots

    I give the game an 8.5/10

    The game surpasses the prior two games in terms of Exploration and Game-play. But it doesn't surpass them in terms of story and cast. The story and cast in this game were great especially the guys, yet i preferred the cast and story from the past two games since they felt more complete. The female cast on the other hand were like able at best imo. The side women were better than the original female cast hence why i chose them as my romance options.

    But this game was definitely my GOTY since i liked it more than BOTW. I also cannot wait to watch the anime adaptation and nor can i wait to play the spin-off games.

    Next is 999 Remake, Gyakuten Kanji II or DAO.

    decisions...decisions

    Beat Contra 3 this morning on hard mode for the true ending. I just got this game Oct 7 and have never played it before. So I feel like I done extremely well. I did bump the lives up to 7 and hard difficulty in the options menu.

    The hardest boss for me was the stage 5 boss but only until I learned how to fight him correctly by tapping L then holding it to stop the spin so you can aim. Other than him I also had problems with the final form of the last boss on hard, I kept jumping off the helicopter like a dumb ass.lol I liked to have never broke the habit of not stopping to shoot before trying to jump. btw this pic I just beat the final boss on my last life with 0 continues left.haha

    I just got the 9th highest score on level 8+ in the Switch version of Thumper (16th overall for Campaign+). Hopefully I'll boost that up once I beat 9+.

    Did it after 22 years. Beat Pretty Soldier Sailormoon S on Game Gear.

    It should be a 45 minute game, but everything works (or is designed against you). Need to make a jump? You'd be beaned in the head with a brick, or have to deal with bouncing enemies that can and will take off 3 hearts if you are not cautious. Controls are slippery and ridiculous, but at least you can control your movements in the air.

    Also, yes, 12 year old me coming from playing Kirby's Dreamland (very responsive and not a badly laid out game), this was a game I'd never beat.

    5 levels with 3 sub levels. Bosses are boring (jump kick them until they die), and or use your tiara to bust them up.

    Enemy design is boring (3 of the same in all the levels, with the emphasis not on combat, but getting through the level). Could be a much better game, but I got this as a child on a multi-cart for the Game Gear. I was impressed at the clarity of the voice clips (features Usagi saying her transformation lines - "Makeup!")....

    Can't believe nobody has said "completed Super Mario Odyssey" yet. I've completed it (like 3 days ago, but forgot to tell anyone online).

    I had it beat on the 28th, posted about it in another thread. The main story is really short.
