I get that. I've got a number of games I've been stuck on for ages, I come back to some of them occasionally trying to make some progress, sometimes I even manage a bit.
Same here.
The temptation is there to use a guide to get some of them out of the way, but it doesn't feel right.
That's what i'd like it to be too, but sadly for older games things can be pretty obtuse, and vague with the details, without mentioning how unforgiving the gameplay/enemies etc. can get..
Thanks for the advice, will see how I go :lol:
Hell, i'd recommend using save states with almost every game.. It just saves you the headache/time of redoing things you've already done. 😉

Yeah I know what you mean. Annoyingly there are games in the past that frustrated me at first, like Shovel Knight and certain Castlevanias, which have grown to be some of my favourites because I persevered. So I feel even more like I can never give up now.
If you still want to go with it, i tell you to atleast use save states.
This I have no problem with at all. I’m basically saving every time I have over half my energy and every time I enter a room :rofl2:

Oof, I'm currently at a sticking point near the end of Shovel Knight, because I don't feel like I'll ever be able to beat all the knights in a row without dying. I'll probably try a bit more tho.

Best of luck! Shovel Knight has the g greatest redemption arc of any game I’ve played, for me personally anyway. Went from hating it to treasuring it and all the DLCs.

I beat all the normal quests in I guess act 1 of dragon quest xi. there are two tickington quests I don't know what to do in. I beat all races in the Gallopilis city including beating the computer records, and I've made everything I could in the magic oven or whatever it's called. I'm at the summit of first forest with slightly over 50 hours. someone told me the game had three acts, and I had a long way to go, but my god. game could take me 150 hours. btw, I'm not using a guide. :P

Just crossed the 18,000 mark on Mario kart online. Not great, but I didn't start playing it until the lockdowns started in 2020 and my wife and I both bought Switch lites for Animal Crossing. And I'm 55 with a full time job. So I feel pretty good about getting this far in just over 2 yrs.

20,000's right around the corner.

Okay so I finished Metroid today. Ugh. I actually had a good time by the end but UGH. Bro how the fuck did people do this back in the day without a map or a guide. Absolute hell.
All in all pretty fun. Never going to do it again as long as I live.
Going to reward myself with Super Metroid next.

I waited long enough to play the next game in the Assassin's Creed franchise that it came to MS's PC Gamepass. I also waited long enough to play the next Assassin's Creed franchise game that I am aware it is a PoS and do not want to play it. I'm going to play it anyway, just for the accomplishment.

Got to the end credits of A Monster's Expedition Through Puzzling Exhibitions - tho there's still plenty of the "optional/extra hard" puzzles for me to figure out.
This is exactly my kind of game, fantastic :wub:

I took a short break from MMBN and finally beat both The Legend of Zelda Oracle GBC games the other day, and have since started to work my way through both versions of MMBN 6. Problem is, today on one of the versions, the save data got corrupted and now I have to start over on one of them, which I am not happy about, so I'm not sure if I'll beat one version first then the other or try to catch up with the one that got the save data deleted.
