☆★★★★ I really enjoyed this one! The levels are designed pretty well, and the puzzles are intuitive and creative. This game really shines with its boss fights. The integration of partner controls and working together feels so seamless without being gimmicky. Overall, I think the challenges and single player mode aren't really worth it, but it's a lot of fun to play through with some friends! :)

You just have to see if you like messing around with the systems in FF8. Some poeple like and some dont. But the game is easier on low level compared to high level. I recommend just to play the game normally as you would do on other FF games, so the the game will have some challenge. I mean I have made a couple of low level playthroughs and trying own the bosses/enemies as much as possible. in 4 hours I had the second best weapon for Squall and had almost maxed out the strength stat, I one shoted everyhing on the first disk. Enemies do get pretty huge HP boosts per level, I mean last boss has 16505 HP on level 1 and 300025 on 65.

I will play the remake of Link's Awakening, I have a hard getting into Nes/gameboy Zeldas. Might play the oringal if I like the remake.

I mean that KH3 is pretty easy, KH2 is the crown jewel for many die hard Kingdom Hearts fans and ofc they are all comparing it. Wich is not fair because the vanilla version of KH2 did not have critical mode either and KH2 is also pretty easy on the other 3 difficulties (beginner,standard and proud). But the developers have said they had tone downed the difficulty of KH3 intentionally.

All the games KH games have pacing issues and I think KH3 is no worse than the others. You get 1 story cutscene after each world you beat wich did not happen in the older games but many argue that those do not progress the plot of the game. Wich is true, but Its necessary build up for whats to come later. I think alot of fans shot themselves in the foot and hyped the game up to much, Its not really the games fault. Most reviews I have seen on it on youtube is nothing but bonkers, people can be so nit picky for the most ridiculous reasons. I also dont like when they the dialogue is terrible beause the series have always been cheesy and Its a part of Its identity and charm. Yea Its ridiculous and over the top, but that what makes It unique.

Good to know, I have been meaning to retry The World Ends With You when the Switch version came out but I have not picked it up yet.

Yea I know I cant beat that lol.

Yea I think no one can argue that the tone is not different compared to the other Xeno games. But I think you will like Xenoblade 2, mabye even more than I did. But Because how much you love Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenogears as much as I do, I do not think Its going to be one of your all time favorites. I think I did beat Torna in 20 hours or so.

Fire Emblem Fates is not a popular game among the big fans. I mean I think you are the only one I know who likes those games. I even prefer Shadow Dragon over Fates, I know the story is very simple but I atleast enjoy what is there.

I have played Super Metroid, Metroid Prime 1, Metroid Prime 2, Metroid Zero Mission, Metroid Fusion and Metroid Samus Retruns. And pretty much all of them I have really enjoyed. Metroid Prime 1 is my favorite so far and I dont expect anything to beat it.

Yea FF3 is my second least favorite, there are some really annoying things that you have deal with in certain dungeons and we have talked about the last dungeon lol. Plus you also get punished for changing classes. you get weakened for like 8 battles or something if I remember correctly if you change class on a character.

The Idea for FF8 battlesystem was to make it grind free. Wich Its actually is, but Its really really exploitable. They choose level scaling wich means enemies level with you(active party average), because you have the junction system the enemies get more stats increases per level. Most bosses have level caps so dont wory lol, the last boss cannot go ablove level 65. What you really do with the junction system is that you assign your magic stocks to your stats. Magic works like items in this game and you can have 100 of each spell. For example cure spells are really good for HP and does not give good boots for anything else. You can steal magic from enemies and they have 3 different loot tables deppending on what level they are. I think Its level 1-14, 15-29 and 30+.

Plus you also have summons that also can level up and learn new abilites from. Also limit breaks are also pretty broken, when you get low on HP you have 1/8 chance to trigger a limit break. But if you press triangle to switch between character you can spam it to get a limit break over and over again. This is probably a bug or just a oversight from the developers. The limit breaks are really cool I have to say in FF8, there are some really well done animations.

Plus the story in FF2 is decent, the character development is pretty non existent. It pretty much is a template for FF4 wich was much stronger in this category. I think Its a decent game but imo the weakest of the entire numbered series.

Its going to be interesting what you think of FF8s battle mechanics wich is also very flawed, but personally I enjoy alot more. I think you will like 8 alot, because I know you like to take your time with a game and ff8 rewards players for taking their time. FF8 have intersting NPC dialogue, a computer at school that gets more and more information as you go on. There is even a hidden datalog in the menus that the game never mention Its existence. This way you will you will not feel that certain plot points will come out of left field because Its been mentioned elsewhere or atleast foreshadowed.

Yea I have not complaints about the Link's Awakening remake either, some people have complained about the art style but I think Its suits the game and I really looking forward to the game.

I loved KH3, but Its not perfect. I think the pacing is a valid complaint but not to the point of game breaking. Pacing has always been a flaw for every game in the series. In the end I think the pacing will be the game only big flaw, it seems the difficulty and the lack of side content will be remedied with the dlc that is planed to come out throughout the year. it seems Its going to have a couple of small dlcs that will be free and one big dlc that will cost money. The think the pacing will be better after these patches because there are going to be more cutscenes added to the game.

Also what do you think of the world ends with you? I tried it on the DS but I could not get into the gameplay, the story seemed pretty good.

Well we have never been that satisfied with the apartment, just been to lazy to move I guess. The place is pretty run down and imo we pay 1/3 to much for it, we have a pretty small refrigerator and freezer, the freezer is really really small. The internet sucks, probably because the copper wires in the telephone jack are very very old and need to be exchanged(we have pretty bad signal in general). Plus my GF want an additional room for my games and what not because they take up to much space. The new flat have 30 more square meters. So for just a hundred 100 euros more each month we get 30 more square meters, the flat itself is in much better condition, the placement is better wich means the summers will be more tolerable(Its next to a small forest) and we will have Fiber.

I really want one of those curved TVs, it looks pretty cool atleast lol.

Xenoblade 2 is a game I think less of as time goes on. The story is really good at the end but the tone itself is a thing I really cannot let go lol. Its pretty different compared to the other ones, I can safely say Its my least favorite Xeno game, but Its pretty good game overall tho. I almost liked Torna more because the main character is my favorite character from that work by a huge margin.

I have pretty much the same opinion when it comes to Radiant Dawn. The Blood Pact is not the best plot device but I do not hate it. The reveal of the black knight was awesome. I think the map design is the best in the series, imo it was really strong. Its my 3rd favorite aswell after Path of Radiance and Blazing Sword. Sadly the Fire Emblem series have lost Its ranking alittle when it comes to series rankings for me, I think quality of the series is not that consistent, it ranges from being awesome, good and mediocre. Imo Blazing Sword, Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn are the only games I would consider to be awesome games. Hopefully 3 houses will be a return to form. Imo Zelda, Metroid and Mario are stronger franchises from Nintendo Imo.

So what did you think FF2 when you have beaten it, I guess Its your least favorite so far? I mean I would be suprised if it wasnt lol. The gameplay has alot of issues and believe or not the NES version had alot more problems lol. the PSP version is atleast playable. Magic is pretty much useless and you get the same benefits from fighting low level enemies as high level enemies.
