Act 4 Mission 1 cleared, 73/200 stars. Cleared every puzzle! Only needed a small hint for A Chilling End, I'm a BIG idiot. Time to focus on Campaign.

Giants are stupidly good against everything, and impossible to take down without losing at least one unit. I want them. 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. The AI makes some questionable choices. Strategies revolving around spamming the same unit or two seem to always work very well.

★★★★★ If anyone is curious about my times, check out this page: http://www.mariokart64.com/mkds/standardsp.php I've beaten all Expert E standards, but I'm set for the easy goal of reaching every Hero E time. All Titan Es would be much harder, but I'd love to get there. | 32 Tracks PB: 56:43. Driving isn't too outstanding, I did quite a few dumb mistakes. However, I got disgustingly lucky with the CPU's items. Only got shocked twice on 32 tracks.

Now that you mention it, I think I had an issue with saving in my brief experience with Wargroove.

I don't know, I guess I wasn't feeling the groove at the time (get it wink) but I stopped playing after a few levels. The game just felt kind of slow. I know they have since updated the title from launch, but I am not sure what exactly they changed.

Thank you for the recommendations!

I actually remembered beaten DKCR a few times, but that was long ago. I even unlocked Mirror Mode at one point of said time. As for Super Paper Mario, I actually was going to try it out early in the year. But I had that feeling where you neglect starting to play a game, afraid of what's going to jump at you in terms of challenge, something like that.

Actually, I still remember finding SPM interesting when I saw a few gameplay bits around the time of its release (That long!). I have SMG2 on the recommendation list, so I will try that out first.

I would actually recommend playing the Ace Attorney trilogy before the Layton crossover game - there are a lot of references to the previous games that you would miss out on otherwise.

In a gaming rut at the moment? I think I suggested Grim Fandango to you in the past, which you currently have not played. Give it a go and let me know what you think! Hopefully it is an experience that will pull you out of the funk.

Since you have recently gone through all of the Layton games, I think you should give the Ace Attorney series a try. They are fantastic, plus there is the crossover game!

I'm not really sure... And I'm not sure if these exact color schemes were on the original GBA, I specifically remember them from the SP 101. They weren't so eyestrain-inducing on the small screen, though.

Answer to your question about Tako-san: well, it was pretty much developed by one person, and most of the pallettes are iconic ones that different systems give black-and-white Game Boy games. Some of the eye-burning ones, like that very bright blue and green one are from the GBA SP.

I was already disappointed that Yoshi games don't usually generate as much buzz as other Nintendo games, but oof...

I just recently started playing through the first four levels of Crafted World after getting it as one of the very few gifts for my birthday a couple weeks ago, yet I already got the sense I wasn't going to enjoy it. I tried to pass it off as just me wishing for Yoshi games to find that untapped potential I've talked about a while ago, but after reading your review and hearing what others have to say about it, I'm now feeling a little heartbroken. The padding is especially a big turnoff for me since I've been the kind of player who tries to collect and complete everything as they progress to avoid backtracking.

At least it's been making me and others appreciate Woolly World more. Not only is the music great, but even that game's early level design is comparably better and more varied as far as I remember. Overall, it's looking more like this birthday may as well not have even happened since I'm not sure if I'd want to carry on playing this. I've actually been getting more satisfaction from that Ori and the Blind Forest keychain I also got on that day. It may just be a keychain, but it's a relic of an experience I actually hold very close to my heart.

Your thoughts on Crafted World essentially echoes my own.

I felt the same way about replaying the Crafted Worlds stages looking for the souvenirs (or crafts - whatever they're called). But now that I have nearly 400 Flowers my mind is starting to just accept the fact that it demands you to play through them all multiple times. I've started looking for potential crafts on my first run so I remember where everything is when I return. Combine this with listening to podcasts to drown out the repetitive music and I'm having a decent time with the game as just a relaxing time waster.

Thank you!

Oh ok. It was just kinda confusing when you just suddenly mentioned without any context.

Your right. He could of just said "I'm saving the world I can explain later". That sort of "I don't have time to explain the good thing I'm doing. The repercussions of not explaining it and a explanation later Crap, now I really don't have time." thing happens a lot in video games.

Yeah I'm not expecting one anytime soon. I was just saying if they do make one they'll talk more about the loop then.

The two modern Blaster Master games are fine. They’re fun little games that don’t really do anything particularly wrong, but the titles are not that special, either. Kind of in the middle of the road, if you get what I’m saying. Just little five hour journeys.

I would suggest playing the original Zero before Zero 2 if you care about the story. Otherwise, you can jump into the second game with no problems.

Confused: Playing 10+ games at once
I remember playing a ton of MKDS back in the day, time trials and all with my buds. I assume snaking is still the way to go for most of the tracks?

Yeah it makes sense. I was just speaking theoretically and wasn't thinking about resources to make the game. In a more logical scenario I would probably do the same thing. My bad.

What about lizard people?

I didn't really think about that but yeah it is a bit weird. But that's fine, the Solus fight did a good job wrapping the story.

The way the game ended sets itself up for a sequel so if they do make one they might talk more about it.

Yeah me too. But I remember I was to getting all the pokemon so I probably will wait till I 100% the game to replay it.

Yeah the problem with that is when I use a shortcut from my desktop on this old laptop I don't get those arrows... I'll still keep that in mind for I when need to type on a phone though.

Nevermind! just found out I can just press backspace and it works the same way.

I think the impact was meant to come from the "Boy that escalated quickly" factor of it all. But I understand what your saying, I flet way worse over some danganronpa character deaths then I did about advent (then again I guess that's the point). I don't think it was time constraints. Because if I were working on a game mostly by myself for 8 years (give or take) I would eventually just be like "Fuck it! it's done when it's done!" and just expand the game as much as possible. Then again i'm not a game dev so what the fuck do I know.

I'll probably 100% Owlboy as a side project (I.e in my case, slowly doing over the course of breaks from my main projects taking it off now playing, and updating the it's data when I feel like it). Don't answer this, but I got a feeling the lore your talking about is about "The Loop" considering they made the loop as vague as possible. Thanks for answering my questions!

Yes. Yes I did. I am satisfied.

Oh yeah! That Farfetch'd! He's alright. I mean, most the characters from serene village don't do much in the long run excluding your classmates (especially espurr) and nuzleaf (and maybe carracosta but that less story importance and more being your partners dad). and archen is apart of the expedition society. But I remember watchog and after I read what you said about Farfetch'd I remembered the rest of the school staff (It was Simipor as the principal and Audino as the school nurse right?) so I don't really have an excuse.

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.
