Muthafuckin' TOOL about to overtake Taylor Swift as the top selling album in the US. Reading some of the reactions from Swift fans has been hilarious. Fear Inoculum is excellent, and TOOL deserve this praise.

dont hit me with dat clickbait. it's weekly album sales lol. at first i was like wtf t swift and tool are even in the running? My friends are all big tool fans so it made me think I was wrong for thinking they weren't a big deal. Def one of the biggest names in their genre no doubt but it made me do a double take

Shotzzy is teaming with Huke, Crimsix, Illey, and Clayster for the new CoD in the franchise league. That team is disgusting. 

Frosty's team is pretty good too, Maux, Skyz, Havok, and Prestinni

Celeste is such a fantastic game. Great platforming, challenging, but rewarding.

I killed myself trying to beat that game as I suck at platformers, then I learned about the Casette levels. Didn't even come close.

B-sides are fun but after the 4th or 5th chapter I couldn’t complete them. I haven’t even tried getting the C-sides.

I couldn’t beat the newly released Chapter 9 either. It’s difficulty is well beyond the Core which was pretty hard for me.

B-sides have some dope remix tracks though and it’s really cool that the game offers so much extra content if you’re willing to put the effort in to get good.

I love the fact that it's challenging yet very low in punishment. I think that's the perfect mix for a platformer. I'm on chapter 6 with all B-sides done so far. Didn't even know C-sides were a thing. Apparently I'm not finding all the secrets like I thought lol. 

The only thing I'm not a fan of is the chase sequences, but this game serves them in such small doses that it's not a huge deal.

I honestly don’t even know how to get them. I just know of their existence because I like watching speed runs. There are golden strawberries too that you can get.

Interesting. I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Celeste is fantastic. The C-sides are brutal, but they're really short.

Chapter 9 on the other hand is long, has larger gaps between checkpoints, and is hard. I still enjoyed it, but it was the only chapter of Celeste that I had to do in multiple sittings.

If anyone is interested, the Sega Genesis Mini is currently on sale for $50 at Best Buy and Walmart.  Just snagged one.

It runs well and the controller feels good but it’s a fucking unforgivable travesty that Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles aren’t included.  I wish Decap Attack was there too.  Look through the list of games and decide if it’s worth it.  Physically, it looks great next to the NES and SNES minis.

My biggest issue with the S/NES classic is that they add a considerable amount of input lag. Its not unplayable, but not great. Have you noticed anything like that on the Genesis mini?

I haven’t noticed any significant input delay but I haven’t been playing fighting games that require real specific timings.  One thing though, either the main menu is super sensitive or sometimes interprets one input as two but this doesn’t seem to occur in games.  

That is good news that Project Lunar can add more games but I would have preferred if all the games were officially quality checked for any bugs.  If I was going to go through the trouble of adding games myself with no guarantee that they’ll work entirely correctly, I could have just used a raspberry pi.

Thats good to hear. I might pick one up if they drop below $40. I don't have any huge reason to buy one other than nostalgia.

I think you'd be pretty hard pressed to find any issues with ROMs from that era (though I do know some exist, I just have no interest in playing them), especially something as popular as Sonic 3 & Knuckles. I have yet to have an issue with any game I've loaded onto my NES or SNES classic.

I don't know the extent of Project Lunar, but just based off the notes it looks like it will improve games over the stock experience
" Performance tweaks and boosts (fix lag issues) (1.0ghz > 1.344ghz, ZRAM compression, DRAM SWAP) "
" ‘Fix’ stock scanlines by toggling smoothing off within stock emulator "
