Is it just me, or does every character in this game seems to have some personality issue? Even Sonic and Tails get angry quite often, and I'm sure they are not like that in other Sonic games.

Got good times on all tracks! I will still pursue lower times | 3-star in all cups and missions ~ Current goal: improve DS

★★★★★ 32 Tracks PB: 59:23 - better run than before certainly, but I performed very poorly on some tracks. I lost 20 seconds in Bowser's Castle and Sky Garden alone thanks to RNG and my own stupidity. At one point I'll run this again to get a 58:5x. | 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 for 3lap (except RR, but I'll go back to it soon) and will work on flaps as well. Reached a few Hero times, too.

The slot thing is a good point I didn't consider. It's to encourage people to participate in the splatfests, but there's already XP and cash that could be awarded instead of sea snails, and the splatfests are just fun anyway so I don't know if they need to be incentivized beyond that. I'm trying to do what you're doing, make at least one set of optimized gear, though I'm not sure what the best build/abilities are. They tried to balance the abilities by having them decrease in value as they stack, but I still see people maxing two or three different abilities.

I think the mobile shop doesn't need to be external to the game since it could easily just be in-game or cost sea snails for players to replace the main ability on their clothing. And adding a time-sensitive aspect to it is another slightly manipulative aspect to get people to keep coming back to the game. The game emphasizes players expressing themselves via fashion/gear and posts, but things like the mobile shop, cycling shop inventory, etc. only serve to limit that to prolong game time. It's a fun game! so I don't think it really needs any of that.

I've been doing poorly in Splatoon, not sure if I'm rusty or what. I took a break for a couple months, but I wasn't having this hard of a time landing shots before.

Oh thanks for adding me back!

I almost completely agree with your points on Splatoon 2 and MK8. I just wish the higher CCs auto-completed the lower ones because either I play 50cc first and slightly hamper my first impressions of the game or put it off until later when it becomes even slower and more boring by comparison. The, uh, grand tour or whatever it was called in Double Dash on 50cc was the worst.

My issue with Splatoon 2 is mostly just the randomness and grinding in the multiplayer. There's exclusively-spec'd gear from the smart phone app, only so much of the clothing is available at one time in the shops, amiibo-exlucisve gear, it's still possible and desirable to min-max the abilities, and so forth. It feels like Nintendo's explicitly saying "don't min-max; don't bother trying to 100%" but still implicitly encouraging it.

I need to relax with a lot of this, but it'd still be nice if game developers respected people's time and effort bit more.

35,000 points? The Hell? I barely made it to 500. Which is where I decided the constant humiliation isn't worth it. I thought I sucked at Splatoon. But man, you've never seen me play Mario Tennis. The farthest I got was semi-finals where I found out that you just don't play against anyone who uses Rosalina. Or people with two or fewer connectivity bars.

Play as Rock. Have the other three AI players be Paint. Sit back and relax.

Obviously, you still have to attack, but it is a very solid strategy if you are having trouble.

The art ability “paints” the rock, thus letting it deal more intense damage. Weird concept.

I suggest Rock + Paint for the last collection of boss fights in Kirby.

Ooooo! I didn't realize there was bonus lessons. That's exciting! I loved the comic style and I wish there were more of some of the later techniques as well. Would you recommend Art Academy and Disney Art Academy then? I really am enjoying myself, but I also adore Pokemon in particular.

I am actually really loving Pokemon Art Academy. I am no professional at all, but I have always been okay at seeing a 2D image and being able to recreate it (can't draw realistic things to save my life.) Because of that, I am finding it pretty relaxing and easy for the most part. But it actually is making me a better artist off of the screen though because it is teaching me more about shading principles which I have never really had a grasp on. Did you find it fun?

Believe it or not, I'll be getting all 12 of the gen 1-3 games in carts sometime this month. Really looking forward to it. I went and ordered them reproducted from China.

Now since it seems shady buying them non-authentically like that. I'm seeing the value and quality of the carts are competent. Saves and everything are meant to work, and I'm pretty sure they may have clock batteries.

If some of them don't work right, I can always emulate them, real-time clock feature and everything, and keep the carts for collection purposes. Though, I strongly prefer physical games over emulation.

Fair enough. I don't usually do time trials and the like unless there are unlockables by beating staff ghosts, like the Miiverse Stamps on Mario Kart 8.
I will eventually do the ones in Donkey Kong Country Returns and DKC: Tropical Freeze, even though they seem impossible.

Happy Backloggiversary! Enjoy that Sonic onion ring.

Gaming has been pretty calm so far. I decided to focus on finishing/completing the games I have before buying titles that I missed out.
And you? How is it going ?
