It was Metroid's 35th anniversary today (well before midnight it was - ignoring time zones), so I decided to play a bit of the original. I've finished Zero Mission before, but haven't really spent any time on the original game apart from the challenges in NES Remix.
I was going to play the Classic NES release for GBA, but the copy protection kicked in and I couldn't be bothered to fight with it, because I remembered that Zero Mission also has it built in, so played a bit of that on my Game Boy Micro. I know the game's been scaled a bit to fit GBA resolution but it looked good. I got the long beam, morph ball, bombs, about 3 missile expansions and made it past the first lift. Died several times but eh.
I still prefer the more modern Metroid games, but this seems more playable than I expected, could see myself putting more time into it in future.

one of my best runs of dkc returns: all kong letters, all stages, 0 end barrel, multiple lives, 0 deaths, took me 'til 6-6:

Finally starting to play newer Super Mario brothers home brew. Wow I've missed this game play ever since beating the original Wii version and the Luigi version on the Wii u. On world 5 and enjoying every bit of it.

Just finished Final Fantasy III Pixel Remix. Finished all 3 Pixel Remix games in under a week. Square-Enix have done a wonderful job with all three of them just a shame that the extra dungeons from the GBA versions of 1 and 2 were not in them.

Beat the Mass Effect Trilogy, again. Legendary Edition this time.

After not playing the game for so long. A single hardcore playthrough, damn that trilogy is amazing.

Never tried Andromeda, so guess that's next!

My copy of Chivalry 2 arrived. Despite some annoying technical issues and some players having no honour whatsoever, I'm enjoying it so far. It's very me. Plus this way I can twat people in the face with a mace and they don't press charges or force me to steam-clean blood out of the carpets. I even got a bit of a killstreak going. 6 kills in 30 seconds. Not bad for my first day, I reckon.

Completed my last LoZ: BotW side quest

(Here's shrine quests too, but I did those a long time ago)

Then I finally defeated Ganon

Bonus: while doing one of the last quests, I noticed that the developers threw in a reference to the video game Among Us. Pretty cheeky if I do say so myself.
