What a weird week I had. Suffice it to say that family will always be a mixed bag for me, but I'm glad I have it at all. Let's chat about a videogame for a minute or something.

NES Remix 2 is a real 50/50 game. Half the time I'm bored, half the time smiling at nostalgia. I see that some of the challenges are basically trying to teach you the minutiae of the games, but for someone who's played them forever these are just obstacles to getting more stars, to unlock remixes. It gets tedious fairly quickly for some games. Some games lend themselves better to the challenges, but it still feels like they weren't as fleshed out as they could be. I think more speedrunning would be appreciated here, for example.
The majority of gameplay feels like busywork to get to the good stuff.  The remixes are mostly fun mix-ups of the games, and the stamps are pretty fun to use on Miiverse.  Super Luigi Bros. is really nice to have, though. Luigi's slidy feet and high jumps opens the game up for some new tricks. Going left is honestly not that weird, although I did miss hitting a couple of blocks I know have stuff in them. The game is also where Remix's only 2-player feature shows up, with both of you playing as weegees.
For a game I've played a billion times, it's still fun with a little tweak.
Overall, NES Remix 2 is a big MEH for me. Not bad, but not worth the $15 maybe. If feels like Nintendo knows they're onto something, and put out a sequel while they could.

Let's chat about CAPS now.



P - Radio Destructoid episode 35, totally acutally sponsored by Disney World. Also, a 7-year-old reviews Goat Simulator. That's cool.

S - The short half of OpiumHerz's 2-parter on Stick of Truth censorship.





T - Does price factor into how much you enjoy a bad game? TheDustinThomas makes a case for cheap crap.

V - HyrbidRain asks if Call of Duty will be a more "serious" game again at some point in the future.

D -  Guy Gamer has a little mod tip to make Dark Souls II on PC even prettier. Prays the son.

F - Spazzh20 reviews The Grand Buhdapest Hotel. That's not a videogame, although I think I would love to see Wes Anderson do a game.
