Platform: Playstation 4, actually, but while this is teetering on the edge, the only difference between this and the original is that you're playing in widescreen, and that you have a (very) limited camera control. Else than that, it's identical to the Dreamcast. It feels like playing on the Dreamcast, really.

January 10th: I think it was January 10th that me and P finished this, with I don't know… 30 hours playtime? No idea, really. Maybe it was less in January, but I don't think so.

January 12: I think it was January 12th that I finished Bloodstained. It's not "complete", as in I only have 90%, and I will revisit this game, I know I will. But yeah, I got to the credits.

January 15: We had sniffed at this for an hour or so, but jan 15th we played for 2 hours. Still at the hotel, and I'm trying to build up a bit of cash so that I can gamble for more cash, and don't have to worry about hotel money.

February 23: We've been mainly playing this for the last month. I have no idea how many hours it's been, but I'd roughly guess 30 hours? Maybe 40? Let's say 35 or something.

Beaten

Platform: Playstation 4

January 13: Played this for 2 hours with cousin. This is such an amazing racing game. Almost as if someone made a game just for us. Such a pity about no couch multiplayer.

February 20: Have been playing this a bit back and forth, and I don't know how many hours this year so far. A bit more than 10, I'd wager, but let's say 10. I have finished all the championships, so I guess this is "Beating" the game.

Beaten

Platform: Switch

Jan 14: Started out with this a bit, and it's a strange game. Is this all there is to it? Random dungeons and you just fight your way through? As in, an action-roguelite?
Jan 15: Yeah, I guess. Up to 2 hours play now. Game overed twice.
Jan 18: Played this for another 2 hours and managed to beat the game for the first time. This is a game made to beat several times, but it wasn't that interesting, so I don't think I'll come back to it for more than a few times.

February 20: I have ambivalently continued with this, and come to terms with the loading times. I have played a bit during february, maybe some 4 hours? Don't know. I finished Six's part, and I'm on the boy's part now.

February 23: The moment was near religious-level special, when I finally put in Shenmue III in my PS4. I'd played I and II back in '99 and '01, and when I in 2015 heard it would be released for PS4, I bought a PS4, and replayed the two games. Then, waiting for the third game, I got married in the meantime, and replayed the two games AGAIN with my wife so that she could follow in the weird sensation that is Shenmue. And finally, I get to the third game. We were laughing well at entering Hakkason and seeing that it's… just more of the same. Gamblers, people who won't help, and silly mini games. I love it. Played for 3 hours maybe.

March 8th? Wanting a pause in Shenmue, we started up this game. Seems like an interesting one; I think we played it for 2 hours.

April 2nd: We have played this as the main game, and finished it with Idontknowhowmany hours. Maybe 20? 30?

March: Just struck me that I'd played this as an intermission. I don't know the playing time, but I'd guess maybe 6 hours. Nice little puzzler.

March early?: Started out on this as somethign to play "on my own", but it turned otu to be so good that it became the game we played for a while. Very very good Metroidvania with a laughingly Old Testament-religious theme of sin, atonement, blood, pain and whatnot.

March 17: Finished this and the good ending with 33 hours playtime.

March 21: TN came over and we had a 3 hour session of this. It's an amazing quick-play-just-one-more-go coop, really!

End of may: TN came over and we had a bit more. Probably at least 3 hours. We're close to completing it again!

This is our second run-through (we've cleared the game once), as the previous save file went down.

Done as far as I'll bother

March 19: Found this downloaded on the Wii U and started playing a bit. Got caught; it's very simple and very catching platform-ish roguelike. Managed to get to room 11, paused, and when I looked back, I had died. Opening the inventory didn't pause the game... Played for some 2 hours.

March 20: Sat a lot with this. Tried to get past room 11 and then got to 12 and 14. Was frustrated. Played for maybe 3 hours.

March 21: Finally passed room 15, and 16 and 17, and from there, I was just shooting EVERYTHING with my rocket launcher, which I'd aquired pretty early on. It almost got to a rince-and-repeat-I'm-invincible, when I'd reached room 29, but I actually died without being too careless. But I think I'm done, really, the playthroughs up to room 25 takes about an hour or more. Timer is up to 12 hours, but I think 2 of those have been on pause, so I'd say 10 hours total.

March 28: Actually had some nice 3 player action on this with RK and TD. Played for possibly 4 hours.

April 4th: Had some more nice 4 player action with this with wife, Bejner and his wife. Maybe 3 hours.

April 5 Obviously hadn't finished with this 1 player either. Played probably 3 hours of this again! Manage dto save in room 28. continue dome other day?

April 15 Obvisouly I still wasn't finished. Managed to get to room 48 on my own, and died because I got half fed-up with being semi-invincible, and started taking risks. Probably done with this on one-player, but had a great 2 player session together with Tim. I'm probably up to 36 hours on this.

Late march: picking this up as a "something to have when I do nothing else and P isn't here" game. And I've been dabbling a bit with it.

April 2: No idea of play time yet, but maybe 10 hours? I'm just experimenting, trying to remember how things work and not understanding a thing. Finally, I remember how to cast spells!

April 15: This is a good game. I'm playing super slow, as I have to learn the ropes each time I start up. I've come to the first town, saw one of my quests be "Abandoned" (wut), and went back to Encampment trying to find someone. I've bought equipment for all the money I earned, and went back to kill some bandits. Was slayed mercilessly, tried again and killed them. Seems I didn't need to go there at all, the quest marker changed completely. I'll just have to take things one at a time. Maybe played for an hour or so.

May 8th: I've been playing mainly this for the last month, and I'm up to 70 hours now. I do think that at least 7 of these have been spent in pause mode, though, so I think maybe 60–63 hours is more likely.

May 7th: Played this with Rog. In fact, I played Tower of Doom and then went on with Shadows over Mystara. It got dreary after a few hours, though, so we ended after 2 hours I think.

Early may: Started out with this and have been playing for maybe 3 hours total. It's a good game; similar to Legend of Atlantis, but with a bit more action and larger map, less puzzles. I like it less than its predecessor, but it's still a very good game!

June 4th: Had a day with the baby, and managed to sit down and try this one out some more. I eventually finished it, solved the entire thing, but I have no idea how long I played it. Counting in the mapping and everything, maybe 8hours? 10?

Mid may: Started with this, as I paused Dragon's Dogma before the finish.

May 31: Up to 10 hours now. I am trying to get to the third boss.

June 7th: I think I defeated the fourth boss, but I don't know how many hours it's been. 14?

End of may: Started with this as I got it in the post. What a weird game! It's not my style, but I love it nonetheless because of its strange aesthetics.

May 31st: I don't know the playtime, but I have finished the game. Have yet to Gold the final stage, though. Maybe 10 hours?

June 2nd: Or something, don't remember the date. I managed to Gold all courses, and I guess that qualifies as "finishing the game". I still have to gold Album Arcade and Yolo Arcade, and find all the riddles.

June 7th: Tried this game again. It's very primitive, and normally I wouldn't try to finish such a game. But it's done in 2018, so I assume that it's at least technically completeable, and it also feels like a work of love from someone who can't program that well. So I think it's nice a cosy. I am working hard with the mapping, constantly dying all the time. I'm maybe up to 2 hours on this.

June 20th something: I don't know for how long, but have been dabbling with this one. Amazing game. Soooo… maybe 5 hours?

July 15th? I have played this for at least 40 hours by now, but I need to go on with something else. Though this one IS really fun.

Early september: I am going on with this and have probably put in some 5 hours already, totalling 45 hours or thereabouts.

Game: Aces of the Luftwaffe Squadron (noticed that this games isn't in the database – only the predecessor lacking "squadron")
Platform: Switch

June 25th: Played this a but back last year, but I got a cartridge with the game, and played some 7 hours again. That last boss is too taxing; I can't beat it.
