actually I went ahead and randomized my TV Trope and got

which apparently counts for Tekken 7 because of that ridiculous Akuma boss fight!

49. Choose a random page on TVTropes and beat something from the video game section

Tekken 7

I hope to play Injustice 2 sometime this year so I should still be covered on the fighting games front

If not there are a LOT more cheating bastard games out there

39. Finish a game in one day

Hot Tin Roof: The Cat That Wore A Fedora

It was pretty decent overall, and I may try it again someday because apparently I got some very mediocre endings. I need more evidence, or need to be less flippant with how I go about getting evidence. One section of the game had me super frustrated, but other than that, it was cool.

14. Beat a JRPG

Tales Of Xillia

As is tradition my first game of the year is a JRPG (FFXV year one, Tales Of The Abyss year two). Current Tales ranking: Graces > Abyss > Berseria > Xillia > Vesperia > Zestiria > Legendia. I'm debating whether to go for Xillia 2 or Symphonia next, although neither will be for awhile cause I'd like to actually have a shot at 50 games this year. 1/50

33. Beat a game with a robot/artificial lead

Machinarium

A classic point-and-click adventure with some truly outstanding atmosphere, picked up as part of a bundle with some other games by the same developer in the recent Steam sale. I'll admit I had to look up hints for some of the puzzles, but it was still a neat experience! (Another benefit to getting the bundle: the soundtrack and artbook included are excellent, too.)

2/50

I'm only on the second chapter of Berseria, but I can't imagine having Abyss even remotely near it on the ratings.

Seems as you've played all the tales games I haven't played, so I can't really gauge your opinion in these things. I do want to play graces soon.

Finally beat Sonic 1! I never realized how much harder the Genesis games were than the modern ones.

Now I just need to beat Sonic 3 & Knuckles to knock out #50-52

26. Beat a game with revenge as a central theme

Yakuza Kiwami

I enjoyed my first time through the Yakuza series with this remake, and interested in Yakuza Kiwami 2 when it releases next year. Though I think I'll head back to Yakuza 0 and see what I missed by not playing that beforehand.

3/50
insert something about BKSheikah here

30. Beat a game with a female lead

Beyond Good & Evil


I was so ready to do this as a developer I like until I looked it up and this and Psychonauts weren't developed by the same company. That feels weird because it feels quite a lot like Psychonauts in character models (especially H.H.) and playstyle and tone.

It was alright. I definitely was expecting more than I got, and it didn't really live up to the hype surrounding it. The final stretch was criminally easy, and the world was a whole lot smaller with much less to do than I expected. I loved the camera usage (especially the Pokemon Snap-like final animal) but this was a breezy barely-ten-hour game.

I hear they're making a second one. Good for them, I look forward to trying it out someday, but this wasn't amazing. Some great leads though. Pey'j is awesome.
