Every time I think of the term "NES Hard," I think of how not enough people understand it really describes poor game design rather than actual challenging difficulty. Even some of the best games of the platform had poor design elements to them (respawning enemies in Ninja Gaiden, for example). It's a problem developers have never really conquered or learned from because we still see a lot of games suffer the same problems decade after decade.

The more things change, the more they stay the same, you know.

I fucking hate the Cryo pistol in Destiny 2. Such a horrendously shitty gun. Catalyst complete, gun now permanently vaulted.

Only really surprise this evening was matching twice against a clanmate. He killed me a few times (mostly because I was using that shit gun) but I managed to freeze him once.

Wanted to buy a whole load of stuff from the Summer Sale on PSN but decided to cut a few items off (others I swear were on the sale but must have been put back on full price, so I couldn't get those). I can wait for a few desirables to go back on sale later.

Got the Director's Cut DLC for Ghost of Tsushima and finally started a New Game+ on it. The area doesn't open up until Act 2, but I'm enjoying taking my time in Act 1 right now. It's nice to just ride along the country side helping those you find along the way.

Clan mate grabbed a third player on LFG and we knocked out the three-win Trials bounty on my Titan for that sweet Pyrrhic Ascent mark. The cloak and bond will have to wait, and who knows, maybe Bungie really will implement a solo playlist like some are speculating (doubtful but possible).

I set up each character as best I can, though my Titan is borderline hideous (I probably play on them the least, the transmog options are incredibly limited). I might make another adjustment to my Warlock but then again I might just wait. My Hunter is so sexy it's criminal.

Tomorrow will be a helluva day. Work really sucks right now (fucking anti-vaxxers are screwing us bad) and I dunno how long the update's download will take or how hard it'll be to get into the servers even later in the evening, but I'm looking forward to the new season.

I completed the Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut expansion campaign tonight. The new area of Iki Island had lots of new and familiar challenges, and the story was extremely well told, lending itself to the background of our protagonist whilst simultaneously focusing upon the ever present threat of chaotic ruin. Plus, it lets you pet cats, monkeys, deer, and cats. Seriously, you get to play with the fluffy kitties of Iki after serenading them with your flute. This game is gold. In all seriousness, though, Ghost of Tsushima has only further solidified itself as the best game of the PS4 generation for me. Truly an amazing experience all around. Genuinely, if you haven't played this one, yet, remedy that today! You won't be disappointed.

Can't afford Ghost because I bought Full Throttle Remastered before its sale ended and I needed to make an emergency purchase of engine coolant for my car. Gonna have to wait until the director's cut is at least half price before I get it.

Finally picked up a Nintendo Switch. Only have the online service and Mario Odyssey so far, though I've played on the system several times.

I plan on mainly only getting the exclusives for it. Most other games I will play on Playstation for trophies and access to party chat.

^That's cool. I'd imagine based on the last (Wii) Mario games I've played, that you can get some mileage of that game alone (assuming you like Mario).

Trials of Osiris returns tomorrow, and it's got a sweeping set of changes. Hopefully I'm able to get some good loot now.

And I swear my controller is getting even worse. I really need to buy a new one.

Progress in Trials was a little slow, so I decided to chase after the new exotic, Ager's Scepter (the first waves, Tracing the Stars), and also knock out some of the secrets in Shattered Realm to boost the Compass rank.

Now I'm grinding the actual exotic quest and am mostly done the rifle kills. Should have this quest done by next weekend.

Exotic quest done, new toy in hand. Some random bugs that Bungie has had to address and the usual but I'm regularly exploring the Shattered Realm for new secrets (especially because I would like the Realmwalker title and some of the things I uncover are just nuts, like a damn Fight Club in one area).

And the Big in Japan sale on PSN has some real nice offerings, especially Monster Hunter World, which I have been waiting for, and Resident Evil 2 Deluxe Edition. Okami is also on sale again, and even though I still have the PS2 version I just might buy it because it's so damn gorgeous.

A couple of my clanmates and I managed to go Flawless in Trials of Osiris tonight.
Aside from that, I've been playing Ghost of Tsushima on Lethal mode.

All I've been doing is playing Galaga on my mini-NES, getting frustrated when I can't get past level 12, raging quitting and then coming back the next day.

/\ That game is very tough. Used to watch my father play back in the day and he showed me some tricks. I don't even think I've made it that far, but it has been some time since I've played.

Today was the last sale day for a couple games I wanted, so I went and bought the deluxe edition of Resident Evil 2 and Monster Hunter World (though the download queue says Iceborne and not the vanilla game, but whatever). Not sure if I'll get the MHW extra content because there's about 260 items to add and I only ever see a handful of them go on discount (and of those I only really have interest in the alternate hair styles).

Just finished Ghost of Tsushima with all missions, including side quests done, on Lethal difficulty. So,e of the duels were a true pain in the ass, but overall it wasn't too hard.
