Play Want Bin Expense: 2016-03-14

Almost retro all the way this week. And Broforce. But Broforce is pretty much retro anyway isn’t it? OK, so entirely retro this week. My Raspberry Pi is getting a hammering! I didn’t even play Assassin’s Creed.


Midnight Resistance (MD)
Average Contra clone. I completed it, but I don’t know why.

Mega-lo-Mania (MD)
One of the best games of all time, I’m pretty certain. Always a joy to play. Completed this too. Again.

Castle of Illusion (MS)
Nah, not the Mega Drive pile of tripe, the proper one. Another completed game too – doing well this week!

ToeJam and Earl (MD)
I think this is the first time I’ve completed it, certainly in the last decade or two anyway, when it has been set to Random World. Really hope the new ToeJam and Earl game lives up to how great this one is.

Wonder Boy in Monster Land (MS)
I never actually completed this, now or back in the day. I remember getting to the final boss, but couldn’t defeat him. Didn’t get anywhere near that far this week, mainly because I stupidly bought shoes when what I actually needed was a shield.

Various other retro games
In no particular order, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 (GBA), Mr Heli (PCE), Killer Bees (Atari 5200), Teddy Boy (MS), Impossible Mission (MS), Kolibri (32X), Bubsy the Bobcat (MD) and Bubble Bobble (MS). Phew!

ZaciSa: Defense of the Crayon Dimensions Demo (Wii U)
It looks terrible, especially the UI on the gamepad, but it plays well and is a lot of fun. The full game is on offer at the moment and I’m tempted to get hold of it now.

Super Mario Maker (Wii U)
I’ll do a post about this another time, but as mentioned the other day, Nintendo have added some new features to the level creation. Notably, there are now keys and locked doors, so I’ve been creating new levels that make use of them. They certainly allow a lot more in the way of level types!

Broforce (PS4)
The more I play this the better it gets. There’s been an update which fixes bugs but not the only one that actually happens (where your character stops responding for a second or so soon after starting a level), and I got stuck on a boss for aaaaages, but the Just One More Go is strong with this one.

Puzzle & Dragons Z (3DS)


A repeat episode, I think:

No Man’s Sky (PS4)
The Internet(TM) was up in arms this week about the possibility – or not – of multiplayer not happening in the final game. I literally don’t care. I don’t think it had even crossed my mind it was on the cards in the first place (which it would appear, it wasn’t).

Lego Marvel Avengers (PS4)
Still haven’t started Lego Lord of the Rings so still haven’t got this. Still. Still.


And of course, Firewatch, Star Fox Zero, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE and Paper Mario Colour Splash.


Nothing, I don’t think.


Nothing at all this week. I’m a good boy.
