yeah, i've finished it before - a friend of mine is getting back into the series and while i don't care for it in general, i'm all for revisiting jupiter's early work after spending hundreds of hours with world ends with you.

i'll say this: it's a great game for stealth goof-off time at work because 1) anytime soft-save 2) all the music is tepid GBA renditions of disney themes so you miss nothing muting it

the three major ape escape games are all quite different for entries within a series, so what you want out of the game is very pertinent to which one is the best jumping off point. AE1 is a solid traditional 3D platformer with lots of technical and execution challenges standing between you and the monkeys. AE2 moves more to finding its own groove by focusing on extended phase of chasing and catching the monkeys and less on platforming through complex terrain to get them. AE3 adds in costumes that change your moveset and give you all sorts of special perks and abilities, which makes the game much easier but also gives it a kirby-like feel of having tons of goofy fun powers in an easygoing game.

they're all still pretty cheap, too! for some reason! i mean, i could be a pusher for way more depressing stuff here lol

Oh yeah, I played DOOM for a bit but then stopped (don't even remember why). Picked it back up again recently and getting hooked, it really is a fantastic game. It plays great, has a nice flow and the SnapMap system adds lots of longevity.

While I consider the Wii U to be of this console generation, it's nice to finally play all of the PS4 games I've slowly been acquiring over the years. It'll take some time for me to sift through the PS+ stuff to see what I actually want to claim.

After 22 years, I think it's finally time to talk about the green dinosaur in the room. Or rather, I'm sick of being hurt by and seeing my friends be hurt by Yoshi's Island.

Stop rolling your eyes. Please just hear me out okay?

Let me start by saying, I get the appeal. Yoshi's Island looked great 22 years ago and he still does today. He also has a lot in common with past games you may have dated. Heck, Nintendo even vouched for the guy and we all recognize their seal of quality, right? The problem is that Yoshi's Island is very much aware of this and uses it to his advantage.

The abuse starts off small but then quickly escalates:

"I would like you to find some red coins for me."

He doesn't tell you that there's 25 of them or that you won't be able to find them unless you collect every other coin too.

"Oh by the way, I need you to look after my child as well. That won't be a problem, right?"

He doesn't tell you for how long or that you'll barely have any time to yourself. He also failed to mention that someone keeps trying to kidnap his baby.

"Also, keep in mind that I am grading your performance."

He doesn't tell you that he expects you to be 100% perfect all of the time. (He'll keep things from you if you aren't.)

"I don't know what you're complaining about! Look at all of the 1-ups and stars I have left you!"

He doesn't tell you that he's hidden and/or booby-trapped most of them. There goes your perfect score...

"You're acting like a bigger baby than my son! FINE! Here are some checkpoints, you baby!"

He doesn't tell you they can only be used once or that they are few and far between.

"What do you mean you missed the flower!? IT WAS RIGHT THERE!"

It wasn't "right there" and you can't go back to it now anyway. Time to start over...

"You missed it again! How could you possibly be so stupid!?"

You are not stupid. Yoshi's Island is just an abusive game that doesn't deserve your time or love. (Nintendo can't get it right all of the time.)

i wouldn't call river king GB a good game, but there is something awfully charming about it. kind of interested to try the ps2 game now, i bought it ages ago but never really played it.

the game is just confoundingly bad at explaining anything at all. almost every single tool is available right in the first store, so some basic stuff:

you'll start off with a basic rod for bait fishing. this is about finding what bait the fish will bite at, and using an appropriate hook. if you try to catch small fish with a medium or large hook, they get away. the game doesn't explain this either lol. a net from the store is pricey but it will let you find free larva (one of the most useful baits) when you use it on shore tiles. there's tons of big trout swimming around in the first town and how much you can sell your catch for is based on length so it's not hard to rack up cash when you fight where the bigger fish hang out.

fly rods and flies are both expensive but they're easily the most versatile tools and the one i had the most luck with. the best fly rod is something like 500G at every store, and the wet/dry stonefly was good for catching most everything in the game.

lure rods are honestly not worth messing around with except for a few late-game fish that are very finnicky. bait and fly fishing work the same mechanically, but lures have the extra step of getting the fish to bite by dragging the lure to stay in line with them until they lunge at it. it's very difficult compared to the other two and takes goddamned forever so i don't really recommend bothering.

oh, and the stupid RPG battles: when you select attack, a fist icon wll appear somewhere onscreen and change position randomly. wait for it to line up or you'll miss automatically. took a while to figure that out too, the fist icon is really tiny. :V
I'll play it all eventually...
