Replay - VHS is not dead
A New Beginning - Final Cut
Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure
Well, I made my goal of finishing Gurumin - great game! -, playing some Ys and managed to complete Cubot finally. In addition I was able to complete A New Beginning (an SG win). But April's warmer weather helped keep me away from the computer, so I did not manage to finish the other two games that I started, and overall it was a down month for slaying the backlog.
I loved playing the Ys Chronicles. I had the Ancient Land of Ys for Apple IIGS a looong time ago but never got very far into it, so to finally complete this was awesome. Not so awesome was A New Beginning. It is okay, but by the end of the game I found myself hating every single character. It also has a good share of bugs. Strangely the interaction choices or subtitles would alternate from English to Russian, sometimes Italian or German. There were occasions where multiple languages were on screen at the same time.
The highlight of May should be beating Bayonetta (shoutout to BraveDave for that opportunity!).
Let's get to the numbers:
|Number Beaten||Number Added||SG Wins Eliminated||SG Wins Added|
Do you ever get nervous that some of those old keys you are holding on to will be invalidated? On April 1st I decided to add a total 41 games, some old and some new, from my list of keys. I've drastically slowed my intake of bundles, but I still have plenty of keys left to decide what to do with. Oh well.
