Random acquisitions!

Finally an update both on what I have acquired recently as well as what I have been playing which isn’t much as I have been out of town for a week and have been busy with multiple projects. Here are some pictures of games I have picked up in the last few months, all taken with my brand new Sony A6400 camera which despite my terrible photography skills is amazing. For the most part I have been utilizing it for video on other hobby projects but I do plan to take more photos to help round out my ability with the camera.

Super Mario Maker 2 really needs no introduction as the second game in the amazing series, tons of new features have been introduced (still no Mario 2 mechanics!).

I would like to see them add Mario 2 mechanics as well as the Game Boy games to the series, maybe something we will get in DLC or the next iteration?
Back in The Groove is a sequel to the cult classic series on the Sega Genesis, I have not had the chance to play this one yet but it looks to follow the spirit of the original so should be good fun.
This was on sale through Amazon for $14.99 and while I have yet to play my brother seems to be enjoying the game!
Another on sell grab at $19.99!
As a fan of cart racers this was a must pre-order, I have put about 1-2 hours into it and while it is clearly a remake of an older game (engine feel and all) they did a fantastic job in sprucing up the graphics. Lots of fun!
Another cart racer but this being an original release it is not bound by some of the oddities of the above from an engine/mechanics standpoint. I am also 1-2 hours into this one and am enjoying the team work mechanics the game introduces, being able to hand off power ups or otherwise play interference for team mates ads an interesting twist to the cart racer genre.

Of course I have been playing other games, the usual suspect World of Warcraft is still in my top played list as well as the amazingly well done 198X and Forza Horizon 4 to round things out.

The latest patch has brought new life back into the game, the new island which is reminiscent of the Timeless Isle from Mists of Pandaria has been lost of fun so far.
A teenage coming of age story centered around 80’s arcades and gaming, while short at only 2 hours the first chapter to this story has been fantastic so far with my favorite “classic gaming” segments of the game being the 2D shmup stage and the 3D dungeon crawler\turn based RPG stage.
Forza Horizon 4 while not having as amazing of an opening as it’s predecessor is still really good in its own right and with the recently released Lego DLC there is more to do than ever. I am having a lot of fun in my Lego Ferarri F40 (not pictured) while listening to the “Radio Awesome” station EVERYTHING IS AWESOME. 🙂
