I'm right in front of the spooky castle. Already done with the tea minigame! | 10h20m, 118 puzzles, in Chapter 6

☆☆★★★ I'll rate this right above Last Specter, so in fourth. The game doesn't really pick up until you get to Folsense, but it gets good one you collect the 16 pieces of the shredded photo. I quite like the diary, it's a nice way to make you draw your own conclusions about the story. Flora just seems to exist for the sake of her being kidnapped by Don Paolo and them both appearing in the game somewhere. All 3 minigames here are not fun. Lost Forest really reminds me of Loosha's Theme and Hidden Land.

★★★★★ If anyone is curious about my times, check out this page: http://www.mariokart64.com/mkds/standardsn.php I've beaten all Expert E standards, but I've set the easy goal of reaching every Hero E time. All Titans would be much harder, but I'd love to get there; I've reached 10/64 Titan E times so far, all Non-PRB (they're easier). Haven't played PRB yet. | 32 Tracks PB: 59:23. It's bad. I could likely get a 58:3x if I tried hard enough.

Fuck fog of war. I'm pretty sure only I can't see my enemy, while they can see me just fine. To attack an unit I have to move two of my own near it, even though they don't have the same handicap. Not a huge issue for now, but it will be later. My rushdown strategies seem to work pretty well so far, except when I start an attack way too early. The AI makes some questionable choices. No way I would have cleared some levels if the enemy commander attacked me instead of wandering about.

This game seems to be easier than the Wii U one overall, although it's possible I just learned how to easily solve these puzzles.

Don't you just hate it when you accidently click on the banner and have retype EVERYTHING?

Yeah she's fine, she chewed through a already damage part that we covered with tape. But yeah that didn't cross my mind, maybe if it happens again I'll get a new PC.

Not surprised, it makes sense lore wise.

Well dang it. Yep, the last one I did the pirate attack

I'm mean in Vellie it's just like "Go in, get the relic, get out." And then in Advent just like "FUCK IT, LET'S BLOW THIS PLACE UP!" Like... [Link]

I have two more questions about Owlboy. 1:Is there a true ending tied to putting the owl medallions (my name for them) into those slots? I don't need an explanation, (unless there is a choice I need to make later on, in that case tell me what the correct option is but don't explain why I'm choosing it) just a yes or a no. 2: How do I go back into places to get the coins and owl medallions I missed. I know there is that return to old checkpoint option but the way the game is warning makes me think I'm going to need to redo the game from the checkpoint onwards. And if that's the case, fuck that shit! I'll take the bad ending!

Edit: No need to answer that first question. I Googled it after I beat the game. But I would still like to how to back to places like advent.

Neither did I to be honest, mostly because of the stupid triforce shard quest. Yeah he counts, I just wasn't counting main protagonists (then again out of my backloggery at least, Otus is the only good bird that's also a main protagonist, so...). Really, I just added pokemon to give birds some more credit. I mean, they only disobey if the trainer they are traded to isn't fit to handle them. Which game is the Farfetch'd your referring to from? Because I don't remember a Farfetch'd being important in any of the ones I've play so far. Yeah, Chatot definitely falls in the same category as Asio.

I wouldn't say you're missing much. There are 18 stages but only 5 of them are original while the rest are just repeats of previous stages but with either one of two different objectives - crown capture, where you have to gather five crowns which appear one after the other within a time limit, or boo spotting, where you have to use your torch to defeat boos that frequently surround you as you progress. At the end is another Wingo boss battle but with a second fake Wingo, and also another Mummy-Me Maze Forever but shorter and easier. The 5 original stages are all really well designed, but the DLC as a whole just really isn't worth getting the game again on Switch for, so I'd say to just find a gameplay video.

Sorry about the late response... Again, one of my cats chewed through my laptop charger and it's a pretty old laptop (It has microsoft word 2007) so I didn't bother trying find the charger in a store so I just ordered one online and it took a bit to get here. But now I'm back baby!

I wasn't saying they are, I'm just saying that if the gameplay is bad and the other parts of a game can make up for it then I would still consider it a good game. I would also consider gameplay to be the most important thing. But if the gameplay isn't the best when review the game I look at the gameplay and compare it to the other parts of the game and think "how bad is the gameplay compared to the rest of the game" if it's not that bad and the other parts of a game are really good then I'll still give the game a good rating.

Now that I'm playing Owlboy I have to say, the gameplay ain't that bad at it's core. It isn't the best, but not bad for one guy. But your right about one thing, it's not really improving it's just throwing in more gimmicks. And that isn't a bad thing when done right, and some of the gimmicks are good, I liked the puzzles in the Owl Temple. Between the pots, rain clouds, and the waterfalls there were some good one time gimmick (I'm assuming) puzzles! On the other hand, the gnome segment is pretty annoying because it's a stealth segment without ability to fly for too long or have insta-death enemies start to chase after you. But overall I say the gameplay is decent but refuses to be anything more then that.

So the one (I think) I finished in my last session was the last one? Cool, don't need to deal with those anymore.

Hey let's give birds some credit! There is Medli from Wind Waker, she's nice. There's.... Roc from Xenoblade 2, he's a badass bird blade with a voice that... Fits in a weird way. There's Solus from Owlboy it's self, he's not the bravest but he's the only bird in Owlboy so far that isn't a asshole to Otus. And there's....(scrambles through backlog for game with nice bird characters).... Ah yes Coo from Dreamland 2! not much to say about him but he's not a asshole so it counts. I guess by that logic there is also Finch from Xenoblade 2. he's forgetful but doesn't seem like a bad guy. And then of course Pokemon, your own flying types have never been assholes to you (unless you hold a vendetta from back when you were trying to catch them) just don't read the pokedex and you'll be fine!

Sorry about the late response, been busy so I haven't had time to type out a response until now.

I personally am ok with lack luster gameplay if the other parts of a game can make up for it (story, music, graphics). Not all games are about the gameplay (Danganronpa, ace attorney) and not all games are about the story (any mario game that isn't a RPG). It's like a cookbook, you may not like some of the recipes but other ones you may really like. So is it a good cookbook? That can be decided by looking at the recipes you liked and the ones you didn't and see how much the good outweighs the bad/how much the bad outweighs the good. You can't really judge game for one thing, you have to to examine all of its parts before truly judging it....
...
... I feel like i'm forcing my opinion on to you so... I'm just going to move on.

You know what i'm not ok with? Forced stealth in games that really don't need them. Stares at BotW. There was one in the hour of the game I saw but I just thought it was a one off thing not something the game does repeatedly!

Well I guess there's another character to add to the "NPC asshole bird" pile. I mean it needs something, most asshole birds end up in the "enemy asshole birds" pile.

Them not saying "DOOD!" is the only reason that Nippon ich hasn't filed a lawsuit.

Once again sorry about the late response.

How was Owlboy? Recently got the game and was thinking about beating it in my break from Xenoblade 2. Watched the first hour of the game and got 4 major impressions

1:The graphics and music are great.

2:Almost all the major characters you meet at the start of the game are assholes.

3:Those penguin doods might as well be prinny's (and i've never even played disgaea).

4:Another fitting title for the game is: Someone Please Give Otus a Hug.

I just realized that I never got around to answering your question regarding Bowser Jr.’s Journey. It’s... pretty much exactly the same as Bowser’s Minions with a better interface between battles.

So in other words, not very good.

Yep, that makes sense. Would you do the same for the Metroid Prime Trilogy? Just curious - it seems like the same situation, though I'll admit I don't have the Trilogy so I don't know for sure (I didn't like MP3's control scheme, so it was never really on my radar).

That's kind of where I'm leaning towards as well, on all counts. Thanks for your input!

Would you put Twilight Princess on Wii AND Gamecube, since the controls are vastly different (and the map is flipped)? I've so far been putting it just with Gamecube, since that's the system it was actually made for (and the Wii version's controls are... not great), but my mind flips between adding the Wii version and not.

Ooh that makes sense, I didn't realize you were replaying the DS games. You're right, for Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright I think the court case sections are the focus, and the in-between exploration mixes in some of the Layton minigame style. If you want to get into Ace Attorney then the trilogy of the first games is the best place to start. For the latter games/spinoffs you don't necessarily need to have played the originals since they restart with a new cast dynamic, but you lose context for the way some characters behave/speak.

Yeah, the movie explains some stuff. It goes between Miracle Mask and Azran Legacy, I believe. I remember thinking while playing Azran that they essentially expect you to have watched the movie or else you just get elements that come out of nowhere in the story.

Exactly, there has to be a way hopefully around it but it seems highly unlikely since you have the same issues I do. Makes me wonder if it's a very common problem that people have found potential ways around it that you can still have fun with the game.

It has potential to be a great game but the one we have in the West is kind of a rough start to the franchise. Although the one on PS4 interested me because of the Final Fantasy Appeal, hopefully the balance was fixed among other things. [Link]

Fortune Street I played it with some of my family members when I initially got it in 2017. Honestly was pretty fun, although I still have yet to fully understand the game to really take advantage of the game. At times it feels the game is completely against you when you play with nothing but yourself and the CPU.
