Yeah, TotK is pretty great! It doesn’t feel *significantly* different from BotW to me, but on the one hand, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Though on the other, the sheer scale of content and freedom of exploration (not to mention the incredible physics sandbox) are certainly addicting! Been neglecting the main plot, so we’ll see how it sticks the landing.

Oops, looks like I’m a bit late to the party, but you definitely seem to have enjoyed the Rush! If anything, I wish there were *more* licensed songs, even as just stage music, since the choreography was definitely a highlight. Otherwise short and sweet, I really have next to no complaints - 2023 going strong thus far!

So, that PlayStation Conference sure was, uh… something. It’s seeming more and more like the days of good press conferences are behind us, with the possible exception of Nintendo Directs. Here’s hoping at least Summer Game Fest doesn’t disappoint (though at this rate, it almost certainly will).

Hey, thanks for the GoW:R tip! Just what I need…

Funnily enough, I feel like variety isn’t exactly BotW nor Elden Ring’s strong suit anyway - just look at all of the complaints about reused bosses in the latter. But the lack of much in the way of maps or waypoints certainly gives that impression, and considering the whole point of them is to feel like you’re on an adventure, what better way to go about it then going into the world blind?

It’s especially bizarre that something as potentially big as SMT, Atlus’s (former) flagship series, is locked on Nintendo hardware, where all of the spin-offs like Persona and even Soul Hackers aren’t, especially when the prequel to the latter *was* a 3DS title only until now (at least in the modern console lineup). Leave it to Atlus to try to compensate with loads of paid DLC to recoup. It’s decisions like these that make me value how consumer friendly companies like Capcom have been recently (at least in the short term…)

The Quarry was quite entertaining! Admittedly we played in a group in a matter of two nights, so may be hard to speak for the pacing in-between our banter and constantly making fun of the characters. But if you enjoyed Until Dawn, I don’t see how you *couldn’t* appreciate The Quarry too! Certainly a more worthy successor than (what I’ve played of) The Dark Pictures

As a matter of fact, I had no idea there were BttF comics in the first place! Always a bit hesitant about expanded universe material (I recall old Futurama comics that even impressionable teenage me thought were terribly written). But on the other hand, comics can certainly be a ripe source for creativity, since their lack of mainstream appeal gives them a bit of freedom in taking risks. The BttF game had enough good ideas that it wouldn’t take much to iron out the kinks, so good to hear it’s already been done!

While I appreciated the attempt at doing something different with Origins, it just felt so bland to me, definitely quality over quantity. Odyssey felt a bit better in that regard, but possibly only because I played it with my brother so we had some breathing room to… not pay attention for stretches at a time.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I certainly enjoyed Wonderful 101 more than not. It just really needed an editor or something to keep them focused - more variety doesn’t always mean more fun! That being said, it’s still probably the closest to a Gurren Lagann game adaptation that’ll ever happen. Oh but yeah, Hi-FI Rush is pretty amazing lol.

I had mixed thoughts on Prey, I think it had very diminishing returns through my time with it. I enjoyed the openness at the beginning, but in the latter half especially it started to feel aimless, and I couldn’t tell you what the story was really about, all I remember was following quest markers because I was told to… and IIRC, maybe my build sucked, but in true WRPG fashion, focusing more on stealth made combat towards the end more annoying than anything else. I have heard great things about Mooncrash, but don’t know if I’ll ever muster the motivation to return to it…
