I just deleted all of the files that I'd kept for making the videos off my computer.
Kinda felt like a big deal. That "Retro 2011" folder had been there since late 2010.
I did save it all on to an external hard drive. You never know when you might want a backup. But yeah, it's all gone now. It feels freeing and a little bit sad at the same time. It had to be done.
Meanwhile, I went ahead and bought Donkey Kong Country 5. Holy Mother of Cranky Kong, is this game hard! Retro Studios didn't shy away from the old-school challenge. I thought that the previous game was a bit too cruel, and I was expecting them to backpedal a bit, but I think they've gone in the opposite direction and made it even harder!
I haven't quite decided what I think about that yet. I don't like games to be too EASY, but when you have to spend 15+ lives just to get past a single boss by learning all of its patterns, I begin to wonder when "fun" becomes a "chore."
Speaking of challenge, I haven't yet got all of the stars / stamps / flagpoles in Mario 3D World yet. I'm a bit scared, since I've heard what the final level is like... I still have nightmares about that Grand Master Galaxy in Mario Galaxy 2. By the sounds of it, this is similar. And I don't think I WANT to go through that pain again... We'll see...
What are you playing at the moment?
