Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I wanted to start writing again and I started with the easiest thing in the world: A fluff piece listicle on my top Switch indies!

Re: Volume Eight

Put me down in the "like DK64, don't like Tooie" column. Just don't ask me to explain why. (okay, I'll explain why: Tooie had too much Stuff™ to do, and while it's true that DK64 had a lot of Stuff™ in it too, it was really only hampered by the need to switch between Kongs at Kong Barrels, while Too...

Re: Volume Eight

If there's an argument to make time in your life for Arkham Origins, it's "play it for the bosses."

Re: Volume Eight

It was the one that had actual crime scenes solved with deductive reasoning and slightly fantastical forensic tools, yes.

But it also had Ubisoft Sandbox Towers so, you know, tradeoff.

Re: Volume Eight

Oh, was that Batman splash Arkham Origins? I thought it was Arkham Knight.

I'm glad, though, Arkham Origins doesn't deserve to be ignored (and Knight treats it as canon anyway).

Re: Our next Final Fantasy podcast recording: Final Fantasy VIII

I mean, I suppose it's fair to assume it was clearly a mistake, given they've managed to hang on to every single other one of the series. The versions of FF7 available out there are all based on pre-release code sent to the people who ported the game to PC, which they luckily did have the good sens...

01/01: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past [SNES] 04/01: Quarantine Circular [Switch] Spiritually similar to Mike Bithell's previous "Bithell Short," Subsurface Circular, Quarantine Circular is a similar dialog-driven text adventure. Quarantine Circular is thematically much more ambitious. When ...

01/01: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past [SNES]

Might make playing through A Link to the Past on January 1st an annual tradition from now on. I used to do it with Chrono Trigger over Thanksgiving weekend, but that game is a lot harder to beat in a single sitting.

Re: Andrew Brown?

Hello, I'm still alive. I didn't think anybody would notice my reduced presence here! But as Leon said, yes, I'm busy with my own projects right now. I should make more of an effort, especially since this forum is a more healthy outlet for videogame thoughts and feelings than Twitter. Thanks for thi...

Re: Games Completed 2018

It even has a story. Doomguy's only goal is to kill demons but the humans and what the UAC have been doing is surprisingly fleshed out considering everyone would have been happy with a "go kill demons" plot and nothing more. One of my favorite things Very Doom does is have Doomguy be completely dis...

Re: Games Completed 2018

Joel being "beloved" speaks to me about the skewed priorities, warped morals, and obsession with violence the broader videogame community has. Given generous definitions of "love," fine, but I would urge a more nuanced adjective be sought out.

Re: Games Completed 2018

I did cover for Clementine in Prescott, but I also left her to fight the bandits and guided Javi back with his family. There were a few places where I was in a tiny minority in my decisions at the end. On one of them, I forget exactly what it was, I was in the 1% percentile. Can't agree with you on ...
