    Kings Bounty II. Sooooo much Kings Bounty II. I waited 30 years for the sequel to that game, so no way I'm not playing that sucker into the ground. :)

    Because of course they did.

    Truth is, no game has ever given me a jump scare the way the very first Resident Evil game did when that dude came crashing through the window right around the start of the game. Scared the bejeezus out of me. :)

    They did it with 7, too. Resident E(VII)_: Biohazard.

    I was just commenting on how bizarrely they decided to play with the Roman numerals for that title. :)

    Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was on an 80% off sale this weekend on Switch, so I picked it up. I wasn't expecting much, honestly, despite the good reviews. The art style isn't really my kinda thing and the whole thing looked a little too little-kid-y to me at first glance.

    But, man oh man, after a few hours with it, this sucker is impressive! It's gorgeous, for one; the voice acting is pretty top notch overall; the mechanics are tight and deep; and while the story leans toward younger ages, it's really no more immature than your average Dragon Quest story overall. All in all, it's well worth the twelve bucks I spent on it (and probably would be worth the fifty dollar full price too)!

    Anyone ever played the Mercenaries Saga games? They are, without a doubt, straight-up carbon-copies of Tactics Ogre and Final Fantasy Tactics-style SRPGs...but damned if they don't do the trick anyway. Sure, there's nothing innovative about them, but they're pretty enough, deep enough and customizable enough to make you forget you're playing a ripoff of an original idea instead of an actual original idea itself.

    Not too bad for under twenty bucks, honestly.

    Can't go wrong there either. I spent far too many hours in college trying to ignore my roommate by playing Diablo II! haha :)

    The only thing I'm playing right now besides D&D is Diablo II (mostly Project D2), as I eagerly await the remaster.

    The best part of Streets of Rage was playing with a friend and just sucker punching them in the back of the head. The developers were geniuses; they made a beat-‘em-up that was genuinely as fun to lose as it was to win.

    EWJ and B-toads. I owned both and loved them equally. And Streets of Rage was mentioned. I was, and still am, a huge fan of that game - the original entry in the series - they're all good but that first one is just so choice. And its 16-bit soundtrack is bangin' even today. I've never told anyone this, but I have a fantasy project where I make a full 4k Ultra HD remake of that game with full 3D characters and hyper-realistic backgrounds but it still plays from a 2D perspective like the original.
