  1. Games that you recently finished

    Finished my first playthrough of Resident Evil 7. Took me 2 days to beat it. The game was pretty good honestly. I found the story pretty weak though (I don't play Resident Evil for the story). The whole FPS perspective through me off at first, but I got used to it pretty quick. I found the game captured the feeling of the original RE1 pretty nicely. I'm most likely going to revist the game to try and get more trophies because I'm that kind of person.
  2. I have a tendency to collect all trophies in a video game. This time around it was Naruto Ninja Storm 4. My honest opinion, was it was the easiest to platinum.

    Guess who has 2 thumbs; with guess what, a copy of RE Director's Cut? His rhymes are pretty sly, it's me, the rhyme guy Cy! It felt good to rhyme again.
  4. So, Sonic Forces? It's been around 2 weeks since I got the platinum trophy fpr the game, and I still don't have a solid opinion on the game. :/

      I feel like Sonic Unleashed was the last game I felt the motivation to grab all the collectibles. These red rings, silver rings, and whatever the 3rd ring set is just hurts me thinking about it

      To me it fits right in with Generations, but I feel SEGA is holding back. Maybe Episode Shadow (hopefully) won't be the last DLC.

  5. Insomniac Cy is back! It's after 4 in the morning where I live. I have been awake for the last say, 17 hours getting trophies in Sonic Forces.

      Good game though, I find it better handling then other 3D Sonic games.

      I found it's a weird mix of Generations and Heroes.

      Yeah exactly

    I beat Sonic Forces. In 4 hours... It's pretty short. Not bad, but not great. It's good. I want to finish the whole plot, so I just have Episode Shadow downloading right now.
  7. Games that you recently got

    I picked up Sonic Forces today. It's... Not bad. 
  8. Games that you recently finished

    I just beat Yooka-Laylee. It was amazing! Growing up in that particular era of gaming where Banjo-Kazooie was fresh out of the factory, Yooka-Laylee had that same sort of enjoyment throughout the whole game. I decided to do EVERYTHING in the game. Yeah, I sort of got the platinum trophy in... 2 days? Grant's work is apparent from start to finish. The crew over at Playtonic Games did a wicked job on the game, and brought me back to being 4 years old again. Easy recommendation. If you like platformer collectathons; do yourself a favor, and play the game if you haven't yet.
  9. Games that you recently finished

    I just finished Sonic Mania. I made sure to get all 7 Chaos Emeralds for the good ending. Everything felt... Right. The controls, the physics, the level design. Everything. The whole way through the game, I had the goofiest grin. The game was AMAZING! Where's my Saturn version? I'LL BUY 20!
  10. Good news! I now am the proud owner of a PS4! I can finally play Sonic Mania!

      I ended up beating Mania 6 times in 4 days. Lol. I'm just playing through Yooka-Laylee before Forces launches on the seventh.

  11. Games that you are currently playing

    Seeing as it's October, I am playing nothing but hooro styled games. Right now I'm running through Resident Evil REmake Remake (The PS3/PS4 version). I'm attempting to get the no save trophy Ink is for Squids. This is actually my second attempt at it. My first attempt ended horribly because of a colaboration between my wonky controller and a Hunter. Hunters suck...
  12. Games that you recently finished

    I just finished the Jill scenario of Resident Evil REmake. Gamer confession time! This is actually the first time I've beaten any tellimg of the original Resident Evil. I can see all the seeds that lead into the later games especially Wesker's motives in the fifth game.
  13. Sonic the Hedgehog (2019 Movie)

    Sooo, it's been a while since we heard anything about the new Sonic movie. The only bit of news I've dug up; is, after it's turnaround bh the studio, Sony is no longer working on the project, but Paramount has taken on the task of the Sonic movie. Tim Miller, who you may know as the director for Deadpool, is coming on as the executive producer for the Sonic movie as well. If any mew news pops up, I'll try and keep y'all updated.
  14. Gamer confession, I have never beaten the original Mario Brothers. On the plus side, I did meet Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario! So there's that I guess.

      You doing better than I, cause I haven't done neither!

    I Just finished Metroid Samus Returns. I will say this; as the game has only been out for a day, it's hard. It's too hard for it's own good. The game is decent, and throws curve balls that weren't in the original. For it's Metroid-ness, I give it a solid 7/10 (Again, it loses marks for the unexpected difficulty). If you're looking for a place to start with 2D Metroid, do not play this game. I'm used to the 2D titles and I was caught off guard by it's difficulty. Start with Zero Mission as a first 2D Metroid. But, I did enjoy the game.
  16. Games that you recently got

    I got two new titles. I got both Sonic Mania and Metroid: Samus Returns. I can't play Mania yet as I don't have the console to play Mania. However! I do have a 2DS to play Metroid. On the plus side? I got both day 1!
  17. Just saw It in theater. I was rather unimpressed. It wasn't as fun as the original Tim Curry mini series. The remake tried to be faithful to the original while also trying to be it's own horror movie.

      I heard it was scary. So I'm not going to watch it XD

      Sorry to hear it wasn't enjoyable for you

      It's about as scary as FNaF. You know what's coming, and when it's coming. The end wasn't even that great a pay off. I ended up spending $20 Canadian on a ticket just to be disappointed.

    3. Seviper the Fang Snake

      Seviper the Fang Snake

      Yeah you can't compare to Nigel Thornberry.

  18. I recently discovered a kind of old anime that aired in Canada. Spider Riders. It's both better and worse than I remember. 

  19. I walked for 4 hours straight to get a collector's edition of Sonic Mania. NOTHING stands in my way when I want a day 1 purchase of a Sonic game. But, I have it!

    1. BrayPlays (Formerly CyDra)

      I only have 1 tiny problem. I don't have any of the current generation consoles. So I can't play Mania. :(

  20. Games that you recently finished

    I just completed a hard mode, 100% map and soul completion run of Castlevania of Sorrow. Some of the souls were an absolute pain to get. Alastor coming immediately to mind.
  21. Just got through unlocking all the characters in versus mode for Castlevania Judgement. Wow it was boring.

  22. Games that you are currently playing

    I'm playing Majora's Mask onthe Nintendo64 with my new clear green controller. I'm also attempting one of the fastest glitchless any% runs. The 6 day challange. 3 total days so far, and I have reached Ikana.
  23. I finally got around to beating Aria of Sorrow for the GBA, and my inital thoughts were all over the place. I may do a video review of the game in the future.

      It sure was tough right? Did you go till chaos? Are you going to play Dawn of Sorrow too?

      What a coincidence, I just finished that game the other day. Personally, I loved it, but I'm maybe a bit biased because it's so similar to Symphony of the Night, and I adore that game.

      SotN I found was it's own seperate beast entirely. AoS I found was trying to emulate Symphony.

    Castlevania Aria of Sorrow has been conquered! 100% at only 6 hours and 22 minutes.

    I beat Castlevania 3 Dracula's Curse for the first time! The game is hard as nails, and pulls no punches. So what do I think of it? Let's find out. This is going to be a rough review. When I do this sort of format, I do tend to spoil things such as plot. Just a heads up, there will be spoilers for say a 30 year old game. I can't add spoiler tags on mobile device, so I do apologize for the gargantuan post.    The story is very simplistic like most games in that era were. Being at the beginning of the Castlevania timeline (At the time of release), Konami had a bit more liberty to do something different. The Belmonts were banished from the country by the church, until Dracula causes problems. Armed with the mighty Vampire Killer, it's up to Trevor (Ralph in the Japanese version) to put the boots to vampire glutes. That's pretty much it. Actually, now that I think about it... That's the basic idea of thefirst game, too.   What I like about 3 over the original title is, that the game doesn't take place exclusively in the castle. The first half of the game is just the build up and the trek to the castle were Dracula awaits. Along the journey, you encounter the three partners you can play through the game with to make it a slightly less frustrating experience. Grant, who can climb walls and is the fastest of the bunch. Syfa, with her trusty stick and magic spells has the easiest time. Finally; Alucard, making his debut. Alucard can turn into a bat at the cost of 1 heart per second, and has his trusty "Balls of Destruction". Yes that is the name.   The trek to Castlevania is the real meat and potatoes of the game, with its branching pathways. The only 'real' branch is going either to graveyard or the swamp. This is were you can encounter either Syfa or Alucard. But, the real fun is in the castle itself. When you reach the castle, things get pretty familiar. Familiar as in it's Castlevania 1 all over again, minus the majority of the castle.    While in the castle, the stages get pretty short, but get much harder to compensate for the shorter stages. Enemy placement gets pretty obnoxious, including an absolute ton of stairs. And I mean a TON of stairs. I hate the stairs in old school Castlevania. Why? You can't jump on, or really defend yourself in general while your on the stairs, leading to a bunch of pot shots. That's design I don't like, and really wish they changed.   Most of the bosses on the adventure, are really underwhelming and go down pretty quickly with Syfa and the lightning orbs (One of the three spells Syfa can use, the others being fire and ice). Trevor does have a fairly difficult time with the bosses because of the rather short range of the Vampire Killer, so he has to more so use the sub weapons to deal with bigger problems.    Castlevania 3 comes packed with everything from the first game and improves. It's all present and accounted for, from whip upgrades, to sub weapons, to wall meat. While Castlevania 3 improves on what made the original great, it also improves the difficulty. Meaning, cranked the difficulty to 80 on a 10 setting knob. This game is HAAAARRRRD.    When you get passed the Doppelganger in the third stage of the castle, it's on to the last quarter of the castle, and the home stretch of the game. In traditional Castlevania fashion, you haveto travel through the clock tower to reach the Grand Staircase. Unlike the original Castlevania, if you die to Dracula amd get a game over to Dracula, instead of spawning at the bottom of the Staircase, you have toplay through the whole stage again. That's draining, especially if you aren't that good at Classic-Vania. I.e... Me.   Dracula himself, is really easy with Syfa and the fire spell. The fire spell does 3 hit points on Dracula. Dracula can only be damged by bopping him on the noggin. Even though the Count is really easy, his damage output can catch you off gaurd. Dracula only raises three fire pillars. The third homes in on your location, while the other two, are completley up to RNG. After defeating the first form of Dracula, the Count transforms into his second form which is a group of five floating heads that spit something. What? I don't know. The second form is also really easy with Syfa and the fire spell, as the fire spell can hit multiple times on Dracula, draing his health rather quick.   Normally, there's only to forms of the Prince of Darkness, but... surprise! After beating Dracula's second form, he has a third form! The third form, lools like a giant bird. Dracula's third form is also really easy. Even as Trevor. The easiest time I had against Bird Dracula, was with Trevor and the axe sub weapon.   Dracula's third form shoots lasers. That's it. Nothing else. Avoid the lasers, and with a final attack, Dracula goes down in a firey glory. Trevor escapes the crumbling castle, and whoever you beat the game with, affects the ending. Alucard sort of stands there. Grant jumps into the air. Syfa, just leans against Trevor.    The credits roll, marking the end of Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse.    The game is hard, but not entirely unfair. There are times I did call unfair, but that was few and far between. The enemy placement at times can be cheap, but that's par for the course with Classic-Vania. Swinging the whip does feel really good, even though there is a tiny delay. If t wasn't for the soundtrack, I would have gone insane with all the deaths I suffered. You can take a litle bit of the difficulty off by using some of the special codes that are in game (The most famous being the "Help Me!" code).   Trevor's control is also very reminiscent of the Castlevania 1 control. Stiff, and you can't control your jump in mid air. If the game was tweaked just a bit, I think it would be a little more playable to causal gamers. The difficulty is fine for a Castlevania game, but it's that reasoning that I can also say the game is not beginner friendly. If you're looking for a hard game to play, give this game a try if you're interested in this particular genre. It's not for everyone and I can't recommend it to just anyone, because of it's difficulty and the control.    I loved it personally, and got great enjoyment out of it. A fantastic game from a fantastic franchise. I can easily rate Castlevania 3: Dracula's Cure... 7.5/10. It's not my favorite, but I don't hate it. It is better than Castlevania 1, so it has that going for it.
