If you loved the beat-em-up Ninja Turtle arcade games Shredder’s Revenge looks like just like what you’ve been waiting for. From what gameplay footage we can see it looks stylistically like the old arcade beat-em-ups with a few new twists. The graphics are using a newer pixel retro flavor while paying homage to the classic look.
I’m hopeful that we will get Internet multiplayer for this as it would be incredibly fun to queue up a group of friends to take on Shredder online. So far there is no release date for Shredder’s Revenge and the release platforms listed so far are just PC and consoles but when more details emerge I’ll drop them here.
Here are a few notable features coming:
* 8 Player co-op
* Revamped ladder seasons
* Personal Stash increased from 6x8 to 10x10 grid
* Shared Stash tab available to all characters on a single Battle.net account.
* Transfer gear easily between heroes—no mules required.
* Bring your characters and loot across all supported platforms. Retain your level, quest, progress, skills, and talents.

Frankly I think Super Mario 3D World is the right kind of difficulty for how I play it, but I can see where some gamers might need more of a challenge. If you are a challenge seeker Super Mario 3D World might not be for you but having kids might help you get there.
Oh and we haven't played Bowsers Fury yet but I imagine we'll get there after we complete Super Mario 3D World. We just got to the mid point in World 3 even if the game feels like a continual hunt for the kitty suit.

"Some thoughts on save-scumming, Doom difficulty, and being too hard on yourself.
"I am save-scum. When I play Doom, before, after, and sometimes during big fights, I’ll typically save my game. When I have to do pretty much any kind of platforming, I’ll save my game. When I’m low on health and don’t know if I’ll make it through the rest of the map, but don’t want to overwrite my current save file, sometimes, (gasp) I’ll save in a second slot. Even I’m when playing maps I know like the back of my hand, if I know a hard part is coming up, sometimes I’ll save my game. Why? Because I am save-scum...""
