I beat Metroid Fusion today, played on the NSO GBA service. Pretty fun little game, my clear time was 5:06. I think that's enough Metroidvania games for now, so I'm going to move on to a different genre.
Other Games / Taito LD Game Collection (12/14/2023, Switch)

Okay, this is pretty cool. Taito is releasing an HD collection of three laserdisc games: Time Gal, Uchū Senkan Yamato, and Ninja Hayate. So far, it's only announced for the Switch in Japan.

Quite pricey too, at 9,680 yen for the standard edition and 19,580 yen for the LE.

In the mood for some platformers or Metroidvania games, I recently played through Kirby's Return To Dreamland Deluxe and Monster Boy in the Cursed Kingdom on my Switch. Got 100% in both. Kirby was a breeze, but still fun, and the bonus Magolor Epilogue game was really cool. Monster Boy was generally very good, but some of the sections were frustrating due to inconsistent controls, and the solutions to a few puzzles were quite obscure and I had to look them up. Took me a little under 21 hours to clear Monster Boy, here is my end game screen:

PEK got a higher score in SDOJ with Type A:


It is without Hibachi, so I will include it in parentheses on the ranking.

High Scores - Individual Style / Re: EOJ

I've returned to DFK 1.5 (X360 ver) and I've been having a lot of fun. I got a new high score in the Omote loop today:

222,539,763,723 - C-Strong - Omote 2-ALL (Lx1, Bx4)

208mil at the end of first loop. Messed up 1-4 pretty bad with a chain break before the midboss but did a full chain in 1-5. Still getting close to nothing in the loop. I guess more practice is needed!

For a change of pace I played through Famicom Detective Club: Ushiro ni Tatsu Shōjo (The Girl Who Stands Behind) on the Switch. I played through the first game (Missing Heir) two years ago when it came out, but put off playing the second one until now. I really enjoyed both games. This one only took me about 5-6 hours to beat, but it was great. I hope they make another one of these in the future. I played both in Japanese, as I have that limited edition boxed set. Pretty easy games to play in Japanese even if your knowledge of the language isn't at a high level, because there is full voice, furigana, and the vocabulary isn't too advanced.

Interestingly, the latest JHA (Japanese high score rankings) has a score of 10 points in Zetsu Mode on the EXA port (ALL clear). I assume this is some 'lowest score possible' ranking category:

I'm guessing this could be done on the home ports as well?

I added a new "CAVE Wanted" board in the Market section and moved the "WTB" threads from "CAVE Shop" there.
