Persona 5 Strikers: Easy is WAY too Easy.

Been playing most of my Persona 5 Strikers playthrough on Normal difficulty so far but decided to do a few battles on Easy but honestly Easy is way too Easy. Battles can easily be won on Easy just mindlessly pressing random buttons. Unless you are very bad at video games Easy make the game almost pointless. Normal isn't too tough either but you do have to use strategy and good gameplay on Normal. They probably should have labeled Easy as WAY Easy.  I've put about 10 hours into the game so far and am ready to switch things over to Hard to see how that goes.  Posted a quick gameplay clip video on my Twitter: I always follow back legit accounts on Twitter so feel free to follow me on there. 

Intellivision Headed to Evercade

It took a while but it looks like an Intellivision collection cartridge is headed to the Evercade system. I’m not the biggest fan of Evercade myself yet but I like the general ideas behind it. If they’d come out with a slightly better (upgraded) handheld I’d be all in. As of now it’s just average to me. 

Paper Mario (Nintendo 64) Turned 20 Today (NA)

Hard to believe 20 years have gone past since Paper Mario (N64) came out in North America but its 100% true. I recently replayed the game and it has mostly held up well over the years despite how easy the game is unlike a lot of 64 gamers which haven't aged very well. I was reminded of the anniversary in my Twitter feed earlier. Paper Mario was an interesting move away from the traditional Mario formula as a single-player RPG. The Nintendo 64 library as everyone knows did not include many RPGs at all. Maybe this was the best Role Playing Game on the system.  The puzzles in the game were probably a little too easy and overall strategy for the game was minimal. Despite being an extremely easy game it was still interesting enough to be really good and also very accessible to gamers who have no experience in RPGs.  Link to old IGN Paper Mario Review (2001)

  Fairly cryptic and light on info Tweet from SNK but it looks like they are releasing a new console in 2021? Another NEOGeo mini just with a lot more functionality or something? It’s hard to tell.
