    1. Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon (GBA) 2/28
    2. Bill & Ted's Excellent Game Boy Adventure (GB) 3/15

    I started the GBA version of Shining Force back in 2020, not long after finishing Starfy 2, and I blew through most of the game quickly, but with my daughter constantly growing and changing, I hit another stretch where I had basically no gaming time, so the game sat at the last chapter for a long time. I can see why people don't like this as much as the Genesis original (the graphics are kinda ugly, the default difficulty is way toned down, etc.), and I was annoyed that I missed Hanzou and Musashi because they changed how to recruit them and moved them to earlier chapters, so by the time I was expecting to recruit them, it was already too late. But I still had a lot of fun with it, and I can't be too bummed about what I missed because this version is designed to be replayed, what with all the card collecting and the difficulty increasing each loop. So maybe I'll give this version another playthrough someday.

    My husband bought me the Game Boy Bill & Ted game as a gag gift, more or less, but it's surprisingly non-heinous, haha. I think this is only the second time I've beaten a game published by LJN? I mean, considering they're usually impossible trash. It's a very simplistic game, and the controls are a little sloppy, but it's still decent as a puzzle platformer. There's a fair bit of trial and error, but the game is pretty generous with the lives and continues, so that's not too frustrating. It's not faithful to either movie that existed at the time, but I think it's interesting how they combined both movies, and the game isn't bad about cramming as much from them in the game as possible. I mean, you got historical figures like Abraham Lincoln, Napoleon, and Billy the Kid, but also Death, the Easter Bunny, Granny S. Preston Esq., etc. It feels like the people who made the game were fans of the movies and tried to reference everything they possibly could.

    1. Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon (GBA) 2/28
    2. Bill & Ted's Excellent Game Boy Adventure (GB) 3/15
    3. Baku Baku (Saturn) 3/18

    I was having a hard time getting my daughter to stay down for the night (not uncommon for us), so my husband put this on for me while I had no choice but to stay up real late. I was playing the US version this time, but I could've sworn the Japanese version had cutscenes with dialogue before each match, unless I'm confusing it with another puzzle game. Well, still a lot of fun either way.
