    Finished tonight: another present, "Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn"
    The reviews online are bizarre, they say it was the hardest thing on the planet and nearly killed the franchise, but mostly it wasn't that hard at all. The plot this time around was stupid but the maps were maybe the best of the series.

    Next up: CASTLEQUEST for NES
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castlequest
    Apparently some sort of thing in the "Legacy of the Wizard" style, with roots on the MS-X. Found a copy cheap on Ebay, sooooo.

    Was also thinking of picking up that new "Street Fighter" collection, but word has it that it's imperfect, and I'm not buying another SF game unless it's a perfect arcade port. I've got enough miscellaneous console adaptations.

    I'm still waiting for my Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon Switch code... so that will be next for me.

    I was also able to sneak in a few minutes of Breath of the Wild the other day, if the stars align again I might play it tomorrow too.

    I didn't like the "Castlevania jump" in Castlevania 1 and I don't like it here either. But it looks so far like they got the game pretty much right.

    EDIT: played a bit more and you don't even have to deal with the frogs XD
    Are you taking the most direct path at all times?

    I am playing Girls Frontline, a nice and better alternative to the dated Kancolle.

    I bought Hollow Knight for Switch yesterday, so I've been playing that.

    Still waiting for my Bloodstained: CotM code...

    Every game worth playing makes you draw your own map XD

    I want to play Snatcher and Policenauts again. I wish they'd release those on the current systems so I don't have to go through the effort of using an emulator.

    Victory so close I can taste it:

    I started filling in the solid parts of the walls as the rooms got more complicated.

    You should email Fangamer and be an irate customer if you haven't already ::foot::

    Maybe I should go back and finish COTM next, but we'll just see about that.

    I did that last week, sadly never heard back.

    I've heard other people in the region are being compensated with Steam codes, but that isn't much use to me as I don't have a PC...

    Have you tried PMing the project on Kickstarter? I got support that way once for a different project.

    I assume they've just been inundated with the recent launch of the Dark Souls merchandise line, I might send them another email today and hope I hear back from them. Looks like a storm is rolling in over the weekend so it would be fun to play.

    Edit - Received a reply from them just after I posted this, weird.

    No luck on COTM yet, they're still trying to resolve the issue.
