My last Android game before I swear off mobile gaming forever. Thankfully, it's a really good one.

This game's hard to get into at first, but it's hard to put down if you give it a bit of time.

Glad to see Wii get a few more games in 2017 -- but Just Dance 2018 and Let's Sing 2018 isn't my cup of tea. And what's worse, Let's Sing is plaguing Switch/PS4 also.

I have played the 3DS ones, and they're fantastic. But you know, by Planet Robobot, reviewers noted that things were starting to feel familiar. The one on the Switch also looks like it'll have the same kinda gameplay as well as the Return to Dream Land aesthetic, and unless there's a hook, unless people are just really happy to have more Kirby, they're probably gonna give it mediocre reception. It's sort of like how people were getting sick of New Super Mario Brothers' aesthetic after a while. It was easier to change graphics up back then, when you look at Super Star and Dream Land 3.

At this point, the only ones I haven't played are Air Ride and the sequel to Star Stacker that only came out in Japan (and allegedly is difficult to hack the letters into English unless someone figured it out by now.) Was there one on Satellaview? I'm not gonna count that one.)

Guess I should talk about my exposure to Kirby, for the hell of it. We had Dream Land on the Game Boy, which my mother also enjoyed playing, and I rented Adventure when I was in Kindergarten. They must have known I liked it enough because they got it for me for Christmas without me asking for it. Indeed, Kirby was one of my favorite series back when I was a kid, so it's no wonder I felt the need to celebrate his 25th (and 20th) anniversary.

Yea, in FF3 the movement and all UI is done by screen touching... I would love to be able to have a controller. I'm really only playing it on my phone for the achievement score... but I like it... so it's a win/win.

I actually have a Windows Phone so I don't have access to the android store... sounds like a good game though.

Same here, really; my job only just turned to not shit within the past week or so, because I finally have most of the new hires trained to the point where they know what they're doing, so they can start taking on a significant portion of the work. These adult jobs are weird, aren't they? It's not even fun having a day off, because there's just twice as much shit waiting for you when you get back.

Fallout was great; I'm pretty sure that I'll play it again someday. The interface is aggressively counter-intuitive (I actually beat the game before I found out that you can unload weapons for their spare ammo), but once you figure it out, it's a pretty solid game. It's like going to Mexico, you know? It's shitty and nothing makes any goddamn sense, except for a few universal things, and then you learn Spanish, and it's a great time. The interface still has its problems, like how trying to loot one particular body from a large pile of corpses near a staircase can be garment-rendingly frustrating, but I like the combat, how extremely satisfying the guns' sound effects are (especially with a stereo system hooked up to your computer), and how you can take any number of different approaches to solve a problem that all work. If you give it a few days to get going and don't expect anything particularly deep out of the story, you'll find that it's a pretty damn solid game. Perhaps it might also interest you to know that I took what is called the "Cowboy Approach." So many charred/melted corpses...

If you're looking for ideas for a good build, I found one that worked really well for me, but do know that while my character is decent with diplomacy, she's primarily built to fuck shit up.

I had been able to play VB games in RetroArch on PC and my Shield...but the standalone RetroArch came with its own problems, namely, I couldn't recover my save of Chaotix when I switched Shields; I basically have to start that over on my RetroPie, which kinda sucks cause I was halfway done already and already had a couple videos up on YT. I might have to take those down now and record my next playthrough. I haven't really decided, I might just run through it myself really fast and throw those videos up, or I might record the co op run I play with my cousin. Also been thinking of recording the first run we play of Sonic Mania...if we don't end up playing that, I'm definitely wanting to record my first playthrough of that, it sounds really fun.

Anyway, my Pi can run VB games, but I think I need to enable it in the config menu or something, I have games on it, but the emulator must not be installed or something? VB Wario Land is definitely by far the VB game I look forward to the most.

That being said, my Pi is generally a REALLY great purchase for only $30, I'm really happy with it. The only thing is it may be a bit slow on GBA games, and obviously N64 games aren't too great either...but everything else seems to run really good (aside from a small graphical glitch on Knux's final boss in 3&K that kinda bothers me)

I've only done 53% of Super Meat Boy, finished just after the boss. Still have the cotton chapter to do, alongside with almost all of the dark world and most of retro warps and bandages. This had already taken 13 h. I'll try to do the 100% just after beating the rest of my backlogg :D
And there are some speedrunners which are able to get 100% in below 2h. I feel like total newbie :D

Right now, Wednesdays are my nights to play RE5/online games with my cousin, but I'm perfectly willing to reschedule that for another day if possible, because I do think I really need this. He's coming down in a few weeks, and we'll probably either do Illbleed, lightgun games (Virtua Cop 1/2, either RE rail shooter, or House of the Dead 1/2/3/4), or Van Helsing.

haha I've read some horror stories about some of the later missions in Vice City Stories, should be rather fun when I get around to doing them. It doesn't really feel like a prequel as much as it feels like just a bunch of events that took place before Vice City except here's Lance and he's way more unlikeable here which we didn't think was possible!

That'd be neat. Probably something Telltale Games can do when they get bored of making Walking Dead games.

Remember the Scott Pilgrim film? It made references to all these famous games, then it makes a reference to a game nobody but NES fanatics are familiar with: Clash at Demonhead. I guess that'd be an example of what you're talking about.

Here's an example of making references for the sake of references is those damn AVGN games. I saw a screenshot, saw the moon from Majora's Mask, and just shook my head. I guess if it's supposed to be a wacky adventure, there are going to be references, whether it makes sense or not. The most egregious example I can think of the top of my head would be I Wanna Be the Guy, and that came out before the sudden obsession with retro came to mind. There are so many references and cameos, it's almost copyright infringing.

Running out of subway games? Get Ever Oasis. You won't be disappointed.

Saw a game on 3DS eShop called Cursed Castilla EX. At first glance I'm thinking "oh great, another effin' retro throwback." After doing some research, and seeing it gaining good scores, I thought I'd check it out. Looks like a more forgiving version of Ghosts N Goblins (almost plagiarizing.) The fact that the audio is the same sound chip used for arcade games of the old days (sounds like Genesis music to me) adds some authenticity. If you like GnG, you should check it out.

I noticed the game actually came out five years ago as a downloadable PC game, before we started getting a flood of retro-themed indie james, so there's still some originality in that regard.

Well, it is significantly cheaper than the eventual 3DS release. Everything is up to par with previous entries (except maybe the localization). Daily puzzles are back too - that makes a ton of sense on mobile.

You played the Ace Attorney games on mobile, right? I'm sure it is similar to that.
