★★★★★ An incredible collection of every character and almost every stage from past Smash games, with probably the best-to-date engine, an incredibly long and creative single player campaing, tons of collectibles, and many-many new modes... It's simply one of the best games ever created.

☆★★★★ It's a remake of the first Pokémon generation with some good and some bad aspects. It sounds and (kind of) looks nice, has a few new additions and retains most of the modern Pokémon tropes (no HMs, reusable TMs, special-physical split, etc), and wild Pokémon are finally visible outside of battle. However, they removed abilities and breeding, only incuded gen 1 Pokémon, and replaced wild battles with a GO-style capture minigame. The Sevii Islands or Safari Zone are nowhere to be seen, sadly.

☆★★★★ A simple Metroidvania game with a ninja theme. It's not the best looking or most polished game ever, but it has satisfying combat, fun upgrades, and a short but sweet playtime. Plus, after you beat the game, you unlock a touch mode where you can control the game using a stylus, and it really makes everything different. You also unlock 3 additional characters that play quite differently from your main ninja. It's a pretty cheap game, and is well worth its asking price.

Pokémon Shield: Isle of Armor
Defeated Mustard at his strongest. Pokémon caught: 209. Only missing Porygon-Z. All 151 Diglett found.

Updated about 2 months ago

☆☆★★★ The first DLC Pack for Pokémon Sword/Shield, and it's... okay. It includes a brand new island all set in the 3D wild area style, a new storyline, a new Pokédex with previously cut and a few brand new Pokémon, and a few new quests. Too bad there are not really any interesting NPCs except for the few in the new story quest (those are fun), and one of the big tasks, the Diglett one is just extremely long and boring. Each Pokédex entry is completely new though, and that's cool.

I'm still salty about the friends voucher system because they didn't let you exchange vouchers between MP3 and Trilogy. Thankfully if they re-released it today it'd probably be easier to find some of your friends with the game.

Cool! I went and did some research on romanizations - that was some very interesting reading.

I have heard of Goemon before; don't know why I didn't recognize him. I think I may have been subconsciously confusing him with Donbe from Shin Onigashima... who, upon further research, is also not a caveman. I guess blue bushy hair just makes me think of cavemen.

I was actually thinking of cavemen that said "ook ook". I thought it might dovetail nicely with your avatar. (Is it a caveman? It kinda looks like a caveman.)

Huh, that's a nice reference! I really did think that the developer made them up. But still, why did Nintendo choose those colors out of all possible combinations? Could it be to make the screen easier to see under the sunlight?

Lol part of me is hoping Genius Sonority doesn't make another F2P pokemon puzzle game on switch or mobile as a successor. I would be all over that too and it would also fill my daily schedule like it did yours.
(But another tiny part of me is hoping they do because of the memories I had with shuffle.)

That's cool! We never had anything like that; it was just Spanish, French, German, and... I think Pennsylvania History. It was some thing because they couldn't get it together well enough to have more than 3 languages. I started getting into Japanese culture my last 2 years of high school, so I probably would've loved to have something like that. I actually wanted to live there at one point in my life; I was something of a proto-weeaboo. That phone app seems like it would be pretty helpful, but unfortunately, I don't think that's an option for me; I have one of these: [Link] Thing should be in a damn museum. That said, I did find these 2 JRPGs on Steam that teach you Hiragana and Katakana that seem really neat, so I'd at least be able to read the syllables. They say that the best way to learn is to go to the country and just start speaking it, but I don't generally like to travel, so that's not something I'd do easily.

I do tend to really enjoy their stuff - I even wrote for them, once upon a time - because they point out not just that old obscure to semi-obscure game exists, but also what makes it unique and special. That said, I often take the opinions with a grain of salt, too. I do that with a lot of sources, though; what I tend to do when checking out a new game is find the lowest review I can find with the most words, and read very carefully. Torrents of fanboy gushing won't tell you much about a game - I once read a review like that that didn't even tell me what kind of game it was! - but when you're ranting about something that pissed you off, you tend to be so much more descriptive, tearing apart every little aspect of it. I read those aspects and see if they're something that would bother me, and go from there. I've gotten quite a few games I've loved, based on terrible reviews, because the gripes weren't my own.

I'm a total wiz at Romanji! Okay, not really; I know fewer than 100 words, and we're probably a little higher than 1/3 of them being able to be repeated in polite company, but I'd be totally lost playing anything much heavier than a Zelda. I learned a few things from Yakuza 0... I wanted to learn, but never had the opportunity during my academic years or the ability afterwards; I never actually learned how to study, so teaching myself would be pretty damn hard. I feel all empowered when I learn "naruhodo", and then I realize that there's a hell of a lot more to learning a language than a fistful of vocabulary words. I learned Spanish; it took me 10 years, I'm not quite fluent, and there are still entire microcosms of vocabulary I've yet to learn. Car parts, for instance, not that I really know them in English; manly stuff is my lady's department.

I read up on them at Hardcore Gaming 101, and their general opinion was that you can pass on all 4 PSX titles, but while I respect their work, I'm not always in line with their opinions. I mean, Live-A-Live is just okay, but Chrono Trigger warrants an entire Niagara Falls of fanboy vomit of an article? Yeah, I'm going to have to push back a little on that one. Of course, I have weird taste in games; I think Contra and Super C are just okay, but I really liked Contra Force. Weirdo. Anyway, I'm going to look into those 2 a bit more, and I'm glad it's those, given the language barrier. As for Gaiden 2, yeah, I jumped ship; I ask for 2 things from a Goemon game, but only really need one: wacky bullshit. Maybe it's a giant, plump robotic geisha stalking you throughout your adventure; maybe it's smashing the mirror out in a church with a giant mech only to find Satan hula-hooping in nothing but a Speedo; maybe it's ballerina Ebisumaru attacking enemies with a ribbon dancer and shooting bowling balls out of his ass. Whatever it is, that's what I ask of my Goemon, and this really just didn't deliver. It was decent, sure, and made a lot of nice concessions that most JRPGs on the NES just don't have, but I just burned out on it too quickly. For the record, the second thing is beautiful scenery, which almost every SNES game delivers IN SPADES.

That's dedication; I don't think I could ever struggle through any kind of RPG in a language I didn't know. I will say that I did really start enjoying the first Goemon RPG once I got closer to the end; there's something about the color progression in the caves as you get further and further into the game that really strikes me. I know: I'm weird. I haven't really gotten that in the second one yet, but I'm still able to hold out hope that the first one wasn't a fluke; it happened before with the Paper Marios, after all. The PS1 games? Really? I just read up on them, and they didn't seem like something I needed to pursue, but maybe I need to rethink that. Any in particular, or all 4 of them?

That's actually a damn good mix; that reminds me a little of the Turrican series, which I also enjoyed a great deal. The only thing I didn't like as much about the Gradius games is that I'm a bit of a Scrolling Shooter Princess, and I like my weapons to be extra flashy, and this seems to have that. That might be part of why I like the Parodius games more than the mainline series. That and all the flat-out lunacy, of course. Thank you; I got a Steam gift card fairly recently, so maybe that'll be something that I pick up with it!

I feel like part of it is the translation, itself; there are times where I'm pretty sure something wacky is being said in the Japanese version, but the translation is often either bland or COMPLETELY incoherent, with lines like, "Boy, there sure are a lot of ninjas in here. I haven't seen my ex-wife in years!" Nonsequitur's Club: we don't always make a lot of sense, but we sure do love pizza! At first, I'd thought that the team might've forgotten to put Goemon's usual wacky humor into the RPG, since they were a little out of their element. And then, I jumped into a plush carp doll, swam up a river, and a giant robotic Japanese woman stomped by... that sure wasn't it. They have some pretty remarkable features for a JRPG on the NES, like saving almost anywhere, 16-pixel-high character sprites, and an interface that is very quick to navigate, but yeah, some elements leave a bit to be desired. I think the mostly work for what they were: a weird experiment, taking an established series into another genre. If you ask me, the SNES titles were the best, though Mystical Ninja on the N64 was top-notch; it was basically a better Ocarina of Time that came out a year before Ocarina of Time did.

Addendum: I see that you have a Legend of Dark Witch game; how is the first one? I've been looking at it for awhile, but you're the first person I've noticed who's ever heard of them.
