Re: 449: Super Mario Odyssey

I got Super Mario Odyssey in late 2019, shortly after my brother gifted me a Switch. Having grown up on Mario games with Super Mario World being one of my favorites and Super Mario 64 coming to me during a formative time in my adolescent years, this game clicked with me in the same way Breath of the...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (23.2.20) - 408: Tales from the Borderlands

Sharp writing, interesting storytelling and a fantastic soundtrack are what stick out to me with Tales from the Borderlands. In hindsight, it is yet another Telltale game with minimal gameplay and a fair amount of jank. But the characters mixed with the way they realized Pandora made this such an en...

Re: 429: The Mark of Kri

I was first introduced to The Mark of Kri when I was 16 years old via a 2002 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly magazine. In its review of the game, EGM talked about how The Mark of Kri had a Disney-esque aesthetic with violent combat. Intrigued by the art style and reading about what at the time se...

Re: Our next podcast recording (11.3.19) - 360: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I was burnt out on 3D Zelda games before I played Breath of the Wild. I was just tired of the formula. Tired of the rote nature of the series. Just tired. Then, I bought myself Breath of the Wild for my birthday in May 2017 and I realized in the following weeks that I would never have to return to a...

One last minor point:

Seeing that blank screen do nothing throughout the entire final game, and knowing of the potential it had, was the one telltale sign of the games cross platform transition and left me with a slight twinge of what might have been.
Agreed 100%.

Re: 367: DOOM (2016)

By nearly every surface measurement, Doom is a game that shouldn’t appeal to me. I like a good first person shooter here and there - Halo, Destiny, the Metro series come to mind - but the 2016 Doom reboot came off as just too “edgy” and agro. While I enjoy playing the original Doom, the whole death ...

Re: Our next podcast recording (4.3.18) - 309: Yoshi’s Woolly World

Leon used a phrase some months ago to describe the Flashback remake as having "off-the-shelf" graphics, as in 2.5D polygon visuals that are pretty standard these days. I bring this up to point out that I have found myself disillusioned in recent years with not only 3D games, but the glut of 2.5D gam...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

When I did a search just now on the Sound of Play forums for Super Mario RPG, I was quite astonished to see that there was only one entry on this whole forum (from just a few weeks ago, nonetheless). I would have assumed at this point someone would have brought up the famous Forest Maze theme from t...

Re: Our next podcast recording (7.6.16): Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

Three word review: I gave up. I'm new to this forum so I don't really post too much. And perhaps it's inadvisable to comment on this game since I did not finish it, but I suppose Ni No Kuni, along with a few other JRPGs, shored up something in me that had been percolating for a while: The fact that ...

Re: Games completed 2016

Bastion still remains one of my favorite games ever. It might not be anything super ambitious, but the fun gameplay, gorgeous graphics and the soundtrack make it a gem for me. First game for 2016: Bastion I really enjoyed this quaint little game. Loved seeing the story unfold piece by piece like the...

Re: Our next Zelda podcast recording (12.5.16) - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Majora's Mask is probably my favorite 3D Zelda game. Ocarina of Time is the most important Zelda, Wind Waker is the most charming and Twilight Princess is the most robust and advanced of the Zelda series. But Majora's Mask, as many have said, is the most different of the bunch. The world is sinister...

Re: Sound of Play: 39

That Luftrausers song was awesome. I've been repeatedly listening to it all week, after hearing it on this Podcast. I plan on picking up this game at some point soon.
