Humble Store's winter sale is live, loaded with Sega, Telltale, and Squeenix goodies that I'm going to spend way too much on.

Man, that version of Crazy Taxi is just so lame. No Bad Religion, no real world businesses, it feels like a ripoff of itself.

Life is Strange and Tacoma turned out to be the "name" mystery games in today's Humble Monthly. March headliner is Dark Souls 3.

Owlboy and Tacoma are both games I've almost bought a bunch of times so this was a very good month for me.

So in one month, Humble Monthly has already smoked PS+ for me, so I'll be keeping that, as I've wanted to play Life is Strange and Tacoma and Black the Fall look right up my alley (and I activated the other keys just to have them)

Grand Kingdom looks like the only appealing PS Plus title for me.  It has cool looking monsters.

Man there are just a ton of sales across All The Usual Sites right now, around the Chinese Lunar New Year. I don't remember this being a thing ever before, but it is a good indication of how the global market is changing.

Hey if it means one extra giant sale weekend a year, that's great, thanks China.

Well, shit, now's a very good time to get in on this.  Very excited to play as Ninja Turtles along with whatever other awesomeness this game has.

Does that game have bullshit last bosses that I'm never going to beat like MK9 or is it more like Soul Calibur where you can rip through with all the characters and see all the endings?

I've never lost more than twice to Brainiac in a Battle Simulator (this game's version of Arcade Mode) run. I think he's definitely easier than MK9 Shao Khan or MK10 Shinnok as arcade bosses, but harder than Injustice 1's Superman boss fight.  It's worth noting that there's a lower-difficulty, lower-reward version of arcade mode that only gives you 5 battles instead of 8 or 12; I've done that pretty much every time after unlocking all the one-time-only rewards on the longer towers.

My god, Fuck Shao Khan on both Story Mode *and* Arcade mode in every single fight on MK9.

Yeah, when I got MK9 I'm pretty sure I spent 3 hours beating Shao Khan with Raiden in story mode.  I did the entire MK3 portion of the story overnight a few days before starting my current job and just kept going and going and going and it went from "very night much dark" to daytime between my first and last tries.

Man if you guys thought Shao Khan sucked, stay away from SNK 2D fighters

if someone took all my guitars and said the only way I'd get them back is to either beat MK9 Shao Khan twenty times without a break or beat Goenitz once, I am booting up MK9 in a fukkin heartbeat

I swear a third of MK difficulty just comes from their weird ass way of blocking that every other fighting game rejected instantly because it's stupid and terrible. I hope they never change it because if I can't rage over dying to muscle memory what's the point?

Yeah, I will say most of my issue with MK is the fucking block button, where EVERY OTHER FIGHTING GAME IN THE WORLD just has you hold away.  

 

Of course, Pizza Parlor OG SF2 Bison says "Fuck you" to every other boss that thinks its hard.

Eh, Soul Calibur has a block button and Tekken just has you go neutral on the joystick to block.  Different games do different shit, and I pretty much enjoy any fighting game to varying degrees.  I never got the block button hate, but the run button in MK3 was fucking stupid.
