    Friend who moved out of state came to visit before he went home, so had a long day of gaming

    Before lunch, we played Sonic Battle together. I have two GBAs, two copies, and a link cable, so we did four matches in the game. Also when he visited the other day, we did three matches. It feels good finally playing this game in two player mode, it's a lot of fun. :D

    After lunch, we played Mario Kart Double Dash, a Mario Kart game he never played before, Go Vacation, Sega Superstars Tennis as the other day we played his copy of Mario Tennis Aces and I was telling him about the game, roamed around in LEGO City Undercover, played Smash Bros Ultimate over local wireless (why not try the feature out :D) and played Sonic Heroes in two player for the first time ever.

    Fun time overall.

    After another week or two of playing Sonic Adventure, I decided to leave it alone for now. I'm only 9 emblems away from 100%, but 7 of those are chao race emblems, and I only just started raising chao this time. It's nice, and I can see why people like it, but it still doesn't appeal that much to me - that's the RPG elements, I guess. The game itself is still pretty amazing, though. I love how varied it is, how each character practically has a whole different genre from any other. And while it's far from being an actual open world, it kinda feels like it, especially compared to the next few 3D Sonic games after it. I think there's real charm in the Adventure Fields. It also helps that the whole game takes me back to when I was 17-18...

    Played some more Puyo Puyo Tetris, but it seems like most of my strong opposition have moved over to the just released Puyo Puyo eSports/Champions. I'm pretty tempted to get that, since I do miss that thrill; I can quite easily beat most of my PPT opponents now. It'll be nice to finally play Fever mode online, as well, and I have nothing against Tetris players, but it's not quite the same balance as a Puyo vs Puyo match.

    After thinking it was broken for a couple of years, I finally got my old PSP to work again. It's been great reliving all the old Puyo games, along with Hatsune Miku Project Diva, Tekken 6... nothing I could really play for any length of time, but it serves its purpose.

    Sonic Adventure 2 is still my fave Sonic game, loved it so much then to 100%, took help with a friend to get all the Embelems, but well worth it.

    I finally managed to beat the World of Light in Smash Bros Ultimate. That mode is one real slog, did it have to be so darn long?! Still, I feel I can shift my focus to non-Smash games now, like Lets Go Pikachu. I left that whilst in Saffron City. My Pokémon need some more love. I'm long overdue on finishing that game.

    I'm also trying to finish off Warioware Gold. I simply must try for as many achievements as possible. Even if some of them are very tedious.

    For the past few days, I've been playing Team Sonic Racing. I've been loving it so far, from the team mechanics to the courses full of Sonic History, especially Sonic Heroes. I haven't been able to play SEGA All-Stars Transformed yet, so I can't really make any comparisons there. I can say that I really like the relatively extended Sonic cast here, it's great to see Blaze, Silver and Metal Sonic appear again. I never got to play Sonic 06, so I aside from their near cameo appearances in Generations, this felt like the first time I got to know those characters a bit better. My only real disappointment there is that Cream is still nowhere to be seen, and Team Rose just doesn't look right without Amy's BFF. It's a shame not to see Espio or Charmy either. If it were me, I possibly would've had Silver be a speed type, Blaze a power type and had the chao team as their technique partner, leaving the other teams in their Sonic Heroes lineups. Maybe they couldn't fit another team in, or they just wanted to change it up?

    I really like how there are techniques to actively help teammates, and that the average position of the whole team is what matters, unlike some other games where being on a team means those players just happen not to hurt each other. Maybe it's just that I really like bright colours, but I find something about wisps having both a colour and a function in their name is really satisfying, and their use in this game just feels really natural. Story mode has some fun side challenges, and I haven't tried online yet, but I hope to, if my connection and such can handle it. I must've already spent 2-3 hours just customising all the cars, trying to find the coolest colour combinations which also look like those characters would realistically decorate them that way at the same time. It's a bit inconvenient that the only way to get new customising stuff is randomly through the capsules (I forget the English translations), but it's fairly easy to keep using it over and over again. I just think the kind of system many fighting games use for unlocking that stuff might have worked better.

    I've had a great time with it so far, but I'll wait until the novelty wears off before I decide if I think it was quite worth the price or not. Being a fan of most of the series, there's a lot in it for me, anyway.

    The new Shenmue remake has some really good graphics. ;)

    Actually though for any Shenmue fans who might be out there - I've been to Dobuita today, in Yokosuka, and took the pictures above!

    It's been a pilgrimage I've been thinking about doing for some 15 years and finally I find myself in Japan so I couldn't turn down the opportunity - if you've played the game you should understand why.
