Vote on the Post-Spider-Man/X-Men Suffering Saturday Game!

Today I beat Lagoon for the second time, in a single six-hour playthrough. I didn’t even need to be at the maximum level for it! So with that, it’s time for a new Suffering Saturday poll. All of these games have made previous appearances in the poll, but feel free to Youtube them if you …

Vote on the Post-Lagoon Suffering Saturday Game!

Another week brings another poll for Suffering Saturday. I have to admit that I’m surprised Lagoon won the day, but regardless. Joining our three established competitors is another Genesis game. The Revenge of Shinobi is an early Genesis game featuring a Yuzo Koshiro soundtrack, and a door maze (Because every action game in the late …

Vote On the 2/7 Suffering Saturday!

So! After some time off for the holidays and AGDQ, Suffering Saturday is making a comeback! In order to give people time to get pumped for it, instead of closing the poll the day of the stream, I’m going to close it the week before. That means I have a game planned for this upcoming …

2015 Goals

I suppose it’s a bit late for a New Year’s Resolution type of post. Besides, these aren’t Resolutions per se as much as things I’d like to accomplish in 2015. Over the past four-ish months, I fell off the wagon with my weight loss, and managed to gain most of said weight back. This is …

So, 2014 is in the books, and with it, my writing about Games I Beat In That Year draws to a close. This is a look back at that year and the series. Part of it will be a simple statistical analysis. Other parts will delve into more subjective aspects–entries I liked, entries I didn’t, …

The 2500 Twitch Follower Special Poll

So yesterday, I reached 2500 Twitch followers. This is a pretty big milestone for me, as it’s probably the first set of 500 followers I managed to get without cheap follows on a team page, or as a result of being featured in a Games Done Quick marathon. As such, that means it’s special time! …

Vote on the 11/8 Suffering Saturday!

Since I successfully conquered both Ironsword (Albeit with some password shenanigans) and Gradius (100% fairly!) today, that means two new games step in to fight for your Suffering Saturday love. First up is Spider Man and the X-Men in Arcade’s Revenge for the SNES. This was in the Awful Games block of AGDQ2014. I’m not …

Vote on the 11/1 Suffering Saturday!

Having successfully defeated The Legend of the Mystical Ninja (Yes, that first “the” is actually in the title), it’s time to resurrect the poll for this upcoming edition of Suffering Saturday. We have an all-NES edition this time, as joining poll mainstay Rad Racer are three new entrants: Gradius is one of the original “Shmups”, …

The 10/25 Suffering Saturday Game: Legend of the Mystical Ninja!

This past Saturday, after 4 and a half hours or so, I successfully defeated Vectorman. I’ll eventually write about it for Games I Beat In 2014, but for now it’ll suffice to say I enjoyed it more than I would, given how it started, and given I was apparently playing it wrong the whole time. …

Vote on the 10/18 Suffering Saturday Game!

Suffering Saturday took some time off this past weekend, but it’s back, with two from the previous poll and a couple new entries! Joining Cosmo Tank and Vectorman this week in the poll are Fatal Labyrinth and Legend of the Mystical Ninja! Click on either name for a quick gameplay primer if you’ve never heard …
