Capcom, my proposal: just make another 2D Zelda. Ask for forgiveness, not permission.

 
 
 

I know you've all been saying this for over a year... but holy fuck! I can't think of the last time a game has had its claws in me quite like Hades. So tantalizingly close to my first escape (saw and died to Hades on run 17) Want to miss work to just play

 
 
 

Had 10 hours of train/bus riding this weekend which meant nearly 10 hours straight of gaming. Here's the haul: beat Kid Icarus: Of Myth & Monsters, got hopelessly lost in Norfair in Metroid NES, and as series noob tried FE: Awakening on hard and failed

 
 
 

Didn't see too many people talk about it, but I tried the WarioWare switch demo and liked it a lot. Don't know if I liked it $50 a lot, but especially if you have a partner to play with, seems like it would be a sweet time.

 
 
 

Quick spoiler-ific Great Ace Attorney thoughts in the comments (finished only through game 1, case 4)

 
 
 

I appreciate that the Great Ace Attorney seems to embrace a level of lack of resolution that makes them more realistic and less simplistic and "gamey" than games past. Cf PW:AA which before anything sees Frank Sahwit saying "I need to pin this on someone"

 
 
 

Does any one know how many worlds are in Ring Fit? Is there anyone out there who even knows what the end looks like... if it exists?

 
 
 

And with that, I'm finally bidding farewell to Celeste. Might pop in here and there to play a few levels, but I think I've died enough


 
 
 

I love watching clips of Celeste of things I've already beaten just to go, "Holy Shit... how did I do that?!" Any other games that people do this for?

 
 
 

And that's Sonic '91 in the books for me for the first time. Somehow, for having never playing this game til today, I got nostalgic playing Green Hill Zone. Truly a magical level... but my interest slowly petered out from there. Thoughts in comments

 
 
 

I know for the more tech literate, this isn't a big deal, but damn, playing (albeit streaming via the GamePass Cloud) Banjo Kazooie on my laptop with my Joy Cons is the great reward for far too much effort!... and it plays kinda just ok :/


 
 
 

Something I noticed during the Nintendo E3 direct and the FP article on Skyward Sword: it seems like button only controls will only be for handheld mode?! I can't procontroller on the TV?

 
 
 

Never have I been more ok to have a delay in MP4

 
 
 

My worst fear: "Hello. It's me, Eiji Aonuma. You probably want me to talk about the sequel to Breath of the Wild... you probably also want to hear about some other games like Metroid Prime 4, the Pikmin franchise, and anything not Splatoon 3 related..."


 
 
 

Control is free on EGS! I shall now promptly download it where it will rot alongside the rest of my EGS freebie collection.

 
 
 

Is it safe to update my Switch now? Any thoughts?

 
 
 

As a teen making myth movies for Latin class, I always dreamed of setting a fight scene to the guitar solo of "Free Bird." So when I saw this, my life was made. #BestFightSceneEverToid



 
 
 

Looking to pick up Puyo-Puyo Tetris for my wife who loves falling block games (FWIW she gives a big thumbs up to Magical Drop II which released on SNES online this week). Any insight as to whether PuyoPuyo-Tetris 2 is to be preferred to the first one?

 
 
 

Never try to rent a co-op apartment in NYC. These people know more about me in my application than the CIA

 
 
 

Is Pokemon G/S generally thought to be harder than R/B? Or do I just suck? I've only played Blue/Yellow and that was 10+ years ago, but playing through Crystal now and am getting smoked by my rival on the 2nd encounter!

 
 
 

It's been a while since Nintendo's updated the NES/SNES Online service, but I've been feeling pretty good lately so can handle the disappointment.

 
 
 

Almost at the end of Link's Awakening DX and have a legitimate question: what differentiates a Zelda game from a Metroidvania?

 
 
 
 

Mission accomplished! Feel free to check out some ramblings in the c-blogs... or not! Just happy to have created something after a few weeks of bleh.


 
 
 

Mole Mania: The Great Lost Nintendo Game

Here's a question: why in Super Smash Bros. Brawl does Captain Olimar get to commit Pikmin genocide in his fight against Solid Snake while Chibi-Robo (seen below) can't free himself from his coin-shaped prison?     Let the d...
