I Get Quiet... Also Birthday Today

Edit: (9/17/16) I should have mentioned this well over a month ago. I've been a bit slow on this, but I'll be getting the other download links back up soon. Alice had to switch hosts (this was done quite awhile ago and the links being down is all me here being way too slow) so a bit of reworking had to be done. I'll definitely have them up when the 1.5 version is released. Maybe that's when I'll actually get them back up? I haven't had even close to the bandwidth limit a free dropbox account allows since the initial release of the game. (Another thanks to Alice for the mirror back then. Shut up Alice, I know you don't think you need to be thanked, but it really was a big help.) :P

After playing both AM2R and the original Metroid 2, I can safely say that AM2R is much better. Maybe I'll post a review proper sometime to talk about all the stuff I liked/disliked, but that won't be today. Reviewing in the journalistic sense isn't my thing, but who knows!

Right after playing the two games, I was convinced via being bought Axiom Verge by WhattayaBrian to play and stream the game. A game that I now very much enjoy and will definitely go get 100%, most likely off-camera. Axiom Verge is a Metroid styled game, and was fitting to play after all the Metroids that were hunted prior. Though their gameplay definitely goes in very different ways, maybe calling it Metroid styled would be wrong? In any case, I won't be doing a comparison between the two, I suck at reviewing.

Then the same person mentioned and then gifted me LISA. I'll also be streaming that one soon. I do feel that with the type of game it is that I'm not going to talk as much. If it's the type of game I think it is, yes. Looking forward to it, as it seems like a game I'll enjoy.

Oh yeah, it's my birthday today!

DT3 Stuff
There IS still a final patch upcoming. The release date I'd love for it is October 6th as that's the game's first anniversary. However, with what's been going on and my limited time the last couple months plus the next 2 and a half-ish months, I'm not sure I'll get done what I want to do for the game. (The streaming really doesn't take that large of a portion of time, all things considered.) Good news is that one of the new additions is Spring Ball which has been suggested often, especially while Metroid 2 has been on the minds of everyone. There's not really a lot that I want to get done, so we'll see. As for the other stuff I'm doing to the game, I'll keep that a secret till a bit closer to release.

And now for the best moments of the AM2R stream!

Brian did say to do it at the end
So many Brians
Metroid is the best Metroid


AM2R Nearing Release

Here's a project I've been following for a good few years now. For awhile I thought it had been cancelled, but to everyone's delight, it kept trucking along. From the time of this post, it's less than 2 days away from release. Both Anomaly and Hadriex have reminded me about it as well. (No worries guys, I've been all over this project, though very quiet lately.) They did both remind me that I could make a post about it though.

If you don't know what AM2R is, it stands for 'Another Metroid 2 Remake' which at the time of its conception, was one of the bazillions of potential fan-made remakes of the game, but this one stood out quite a bit from the others and also hasn't died. The blog for it is here!

Also here and here and here and here! All lead to the same place, definitely check it out if you want more 2D Metroid goodness.

I've been wondering on a game to either stream or do an LP for and maybe this will be the one.

Hadriex will be streaming the game this Saturday (8/6/2016) at 1pm, Alaska time. (-09:00)
