Prince of Persia: The Fallen King
[26/09/21] Both gears were activated, lowering the bridge that allows access to the eastern part of the city. The Prince hopes to find the King.

Updated about 1 day ago

☆☆★★★ I’ve cleared 6 stages of the second area, and 12 overall. I’ve also opened 3 locked gates, found 3 health upgrade and read 8 scrolls; all that adds up to 27% of completion. At first, it can be difficult to perform certain moves, but I got used to them after some time. I would’ve preferred that the Prince kept his look from the Sands of Time era, but I got used to his looks in this game as well.

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
[25/09/21](!) I replayed the remaining 3 chapters of Episode II, getting all canisters and Power Bricks I was missing. I also got 1 True Jedi rank.

Updated about 2 days ago

★★★★★ My progress overall is 60.0%, I've obtained 83 out of 160 gold bricks, 222 out of 360 canisters, 16 out of 36 Power Bricks, 34 out of 36 True Jedi ranks, 106 characters and 19 vehicles. I haven't completed any challenges yet though. I was going to get these for Gamecube but I'm glad I waited until later to get both in one disc and with a few extra things to boot.

Rampage: Total Destruction
[23/09/21](*) I destroyed the remaining blocks of New York as Lizzie, achieving total destruction. There are still many things to do though.

Updated about 5 days ago

☆☆★★★ I’ve destroyed all 7 cities, earning all 4 upgrades for 4 monsters, 3 for 2 monsters and 2 for 1 monster; I've unlocked 6 extra monsters, getting a total of 12. In Las Vegas and Los Angeles, I've only earned 1 challenge, while in San Francisco, London, Chicago, Hong Kong and New York, I've earned 2. The game gets repetitive fast so it's best played in short bursts.

Nintendo Land
[22/09/21](+) I played 4 more games this time, all of them were solo games. While in some I didn’t last long, I earned a bronze trophy at 2.

Updated about 5 days ago

☆★★★★ I have 3 out of 80 stamps, and I’ve earned 2 bronze trophies and 1 silver trophy. With the coins I’ve earned, I’ve obtained 6 prizes from the central tower. This game is a compilation of several minigames, some could even pass as standalone games; the only downside is that some of them can only be played in multiplayer, other than that it’s a very fun game from what little I’ve experienced.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
[22/09/21] In the Tower of Spirits, we reached the top and faced a powerful enemy. Our next destination is yet another realm and temple.

Updated about 5 days ago

★★★★★ On the Collection Screen, I have the Recruit Sword, both uniforms, both shields, the large Bomb Bag, the large Quiver and 12 extra train parts. I’ve obtained 10 Heart Containers (13 Hearts total), 17 stamps and 19 rabbits. From the Spirit Flute, I have all 5 songs; I have 5 items out of 7 and I’ve cleared 4 dungeons too. Moreover, I’ve obtained 14 Force Gems. I feel this game improved several minor things that were an inconvenience in Phantom Hourglass.

Link-a-Pix Color
[21/09/21](+) I started with page 4, the puzzles here are larger and they have taken over 15 minutes so far. Seems like the rest will be the same.

Updated about 6 days ago

☆★★★★ I've solved 47 puzzles out of 120 by now. The third of the Pix games, it reminds me a little of those snake games on old cell phones since the links can't intersect each other. Some are easy to figure out because of low numbers and big empty spaces; others can be tricky because of how many options there are!

Spider-Man 3
[21/09/21] Spider-Man won the first round against the Lizard, but now there’s someone else roaming the sewers that is equally dangerous.

Updated about 6 days ago

☆★★★★ I have 30% of the game completed after clearing 11 chapters; I’ve taken 15 out of 35 villain photos, I’ve collected 0 our of 50 Spider Emblems and 2 out of 100 meteorite fragments. From the Hero Upgrades I have purchased 17 by now. At first glance, the city map looks a bit bigger than the previous game’s, but it lacks some features like docks. It can also get tiring to shake the controllers with each web line.

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2
[20/09/21](!) I thought the Buu saga would have more events to clear but there were only 3 more left. I started the second Broly scenario.

Updated about 1 week ago

★★★★★ From Dragon Adventure I have an achievement ratio of 66%; I haven't played any Ultimate Battle challenges yet though. I've won 2 tournaments in Novice and 1 in Adept, and from the training I've cleared all 21 lessons. Finally, I have 61% of all the Z-Items. I think this is a very complete DBZ game, feels a lot better than the Budokai ones (especially the mobility) although it takes longer to master.

Updated about 1 week ago

★★★★★ On this file, I’ve cleared 1 area so far. I’ve obtained 1 health upgrade and 3 relics; I’ve found 3 songs too, adding up to 8 out of 46. From the feats, I’ve achieved 3 out of 45, which is 6% of completion. This game is the first one of the series, bringing back that old-school feeling from 8-bit games but also using modern features to make them more polished.

Also, I have a Pokémon House level 11, and I have all 19 balloons available; in addition, I bought 3 trees level 7, 3 trees level 6 and 1 tree level 5. Finally, I've completed 21 of the King's challenges.

Updated about 1 week ago

★★★★★ I’m currently playing the second quest; I have all 3 sacred pearls and 4 tunes for the Wind Waker. I’ve also obtained 4 pieces of equipment, 3 capacity upgrades and 18 different items. In addition, I got 20 Pieces of Heart (12 hearts altogether) and 26 Treasure Charts (with 13 treasures found). As extra, I’ve gotten 13 Blue Chu Jelly globs and all trade items; I’ve cleared 5 submarines and 10 platforms; I’ve defeated 1 Big Octo too. I completed the Nintendo Gallery on my first playthrough.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
[18/09/21] Now that I opened the remaining three rooms, I explored them and got a couple of items. All that’s left is to face the final boss.

Updated about 1 week ago

☆★★★★ Currently I'm level 30, and I have defeated all 75 sand creatures around the palace; I’m at the first section of it and I've gotten all 15 scrolls. Also, I've obtained both rings; from the medals, I’ve gotten 3 pieces of the Copper, 3 of the Jade, 3 of the Onyx, 3 of the Tagua, 3 of the Azurite, 3 of the Olivine, 3 of the Spinel and 3 of the Zircon.

Updated about 1 week ago

★★★★★ I’m currently at the chapter At Last We’re Here, with 81% of the game completed. I have retrieved 46 sand clouds, and I’ve found 8 life fountains. I’ve also found 3 of the boxes that unlock doors in the GBA version. A very solid platformer with a good plot and decent challenge, my only complaint with this game is that the voices' volume is so low, compared with the ambience noise and the BGMs.

Ace Mathician
[16/09/21](+) I cleared all stages of the second world, but I was a little stumped at the fourth one. The jumping mechanics are a little off too.

Updated about 2 weeks ago

☆☆★★★ So far, I’ve cleared 5 stages of the second world, and 10 stages overall; I’ve gotten 3 stars on all 8 stages that have them. This is a curious game, I like math so the premise caught my attention, too bad it seems like it’ll be on the short side, but maybe the latter worlds’ puzzles will make up for it with their difficulty... from what I’ve seen it might be if trying to get all stars.

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe
[16/09/21](+) I upgraded all my Rarity 2 gear, and I tested some of them in quests, completing some more Heroic Missions in the process.

Updated about 2 weeks ago

☆★★★★ So far, I've completed 24 different Quests (153 overall), earning a total of 8 Platinum Medals, 10 Gold Medals, 4 Silver Medals and 2 Bronze Medals. My current level is 25, and my Heroic Rank is of 119/256. My total high score is 24527; I’ve also obtained a total of 64 pieces of gear, 8 of them have been upgraded. I hope I can try the wireless quests sometime to complete all Heroic Missions.

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles
[16/09/21](!) All missions from the Raccoon’s Destruction scenario are long, so this time I only replayed the first one and got all missing files.

Updated about 2 weeks ago

★★★★★ I've obtained 15 extra weapons, 4 of them are level 4, 9 of them are level 3, and 2 of them are level 2 by now. I've cleared all stages, and I've found a total of 87 files out of 107 up until now. I'm playing on Easy so I don't have any mission items yet. While this game doesn't have the same content as each individual version, it's good for knowing the story and experiencing it in a different way; not to mention the extra stages and characters.

007 Nightfire
[16/09/21] Bond and Alura managed to reach Drake’s island undetected, and destroyed their defense systems in the ninth and tenth missions.

Updated about 2 weeks ago

☆★★★★ I beat the game on 007 difficulty, and I have 10 Platinum Medals and 2 Gold Medals. I got 12 Reward Cards, 11 weapon/gadget upgrades, 15 extra multiplayer skins, 6 extra multiplayer scenarios and 1 extra multiplayer option. I like how this game improved some things like the controls and the multiplayer options, also making some Bond Moves less obvious. However, they didn’t keep widescreen in mind considering how characters stop moving or get cut off at the borders of the screen.

★★★★★ I achieved a perfect town; I completed all exhibits at the museum and I paid off my entire mortgage. I got all Silver and Golden Tools, all songs from K. K. Slider and all stationery sheets, as well as all special series. From the rest of the catalog, I’m missing 28 pieces of furniture, 4 wallpapers, 7 carpets, 14 shirts, 9 accessories and 1 Gyroid. I also got all patterns from Wendell.

★★★★★ My clan has 20 members by now, and I’ve cleared 36 missions. Also, my clan is level 8 and I’ve freed 4 areas out of 7 that are currently placed. This game made me get more into strategy games, it combines some features of RPGs too and it offers many customization options with the many jobs and abilities each one can learn.

[11/09/21] I’ll train with Jade to clear Arcade as her next, but first I want to win the matches all over Edenia. I won 4 more, some were hard.

Updated about 2 weeks ago

★★★★★ For Arcade Mode I've unlocked 6 new characters and 26 alternate costumes; in Puzzle Kombat I've unlocked 6 new characters. From Kontent, I have 52 character bios (38 new ones), 22 arenas (12 new ones), 6 puzzle arenas (2 new ones), 22 endings, 181 production art items, 36 videos (26 new ones), 46 photos and 21 tracks (11 new ones).

Updated about 2 weeks ago    |    Online Info Friend Code: 0907-9475-5703

☆★★★★ I've played 85 multiplayer matches, and I've cleared Arcade Mode with all 7 characters by now. I've unlocked 5 extra characters, 2 extra maps, 4 extra costumes and 7 bonus items. I've cleared Survival Mode with 4 characters, and I've completed 20 missions; fortunately the unlocks don't take nearly as long as in similar games like Brawl.

★★★★★ I’m currently in Vine Valley, I’ve cleared 2 stages of it. Overall, I’ve cleared 12 regular stages (all 12 with the KONG letters) and I’ve found 22 bonuses within them, adding up to 34% of completion. I like the environments of this game better than the other 2, but it’s harder to tell where the hidden bonuses are.

Resident Evil 3 - Nemesis
[08/09/21] Jill makes her way through the zombie-infested streets of Raccoon City, wondering what happened here. Will she survive?

Updated about 3 weeks ago

New Super Mario Bros.
[05/09/21] Three more stages are cleared, all 3 were different of each other: a tower, an underwater area and an icy area. Only 2 more left.

Updated about 3 weeks ago

★★★★★ On this new playthrough, my high score is of 3793990 and I’ve earned 1 star on my save file. I cleared 67 stages (finding 14 alternate exits), and I've obtained 201 Star Coins; 115 of them have been spent. I haven't played any minigames yet but I'll give them a try eventually. I like how this game brings back many things that made Mario games so popular.

Updated about 1 month ago

★★★★★ I’ve played 126 matches, and I have 308 trophies out of 685; I also unlocked 12 extra characters, and 4 extra stages. I cleared Classic Mode with 5 characters and All-Star Mode with 5 characters. I’ve completed 29 challenges out of 35, unlocked 3 extra Pokémon from the Pokéballs and I obtained 37 custom moves. Finally, I have 11 headgear pieces and 4 outfits besides the default ones.

[25/08/21] I had forgotten that this version of the game freezes sometimes... and if that happens with an owl statue save, the progress is lost...

Updated about 1 month ago

★★★★★ From the equipment, I have a sword and a shield, as well as the small Bomb Bag; I also found 2 Piece of Hearts (3 hearts overall). From the Bombers Notebook, I’ve solved 2 problems out of 20. I have found 3 masks and I have 3 different items too. From the Ocarina songs, I’ve learned two. This game is definitely the darkest of them all, which can be a good change from other games.

[25/08/21] Three more stages of Chocolate Island are cleared, including one with 2 goals. Only 2 more before I can mark this world as complete.

Updated about 1 month ago

★★★★★ I’ve completed 53 stages by now, clearing 72 goals. I also got 240 Dragon Coins, and my top score is of 3276660. This time, I cleared the game as fast as possible and now I’m clearing all stages I didn’t play. I like the changes that this port has, like adding Dragon Coins to each stage and Luigi being different from Mario like in other games.

[23/08/21] 3 more missions are cleared; I also got a new weapon. Only 2 more missions left before the team escapes this planet or dies trying.

☆★★★★ I restarted the game to get a new Friend Code; I’m currently playing the game on Easy and I’ve completed 11 stages, earning 1 rank of S, 5 ranks of A, 4 ranks of B and 1 rank of C. From extra weapons, I’ve found 3 by now. It’s good to have a game like this, even if it falls on the short side. The one thing I didn’t like is being unable to see my high scores without connecting to WFC.

From the Stamp Dash, I have obtained 28 stamps out of 46 (10 from Marine, 15 from City and 3 from Snow). I’ve found 7 out of 51 blue balloons; I have found 0 out of 78 Silver Keys and 0 out of 12 Gold Keys. With so much to do, it’s hard to pick just one activity!

From collectibles, I have 27 Catch Cards out of 256 and 16 recipes out of 96. Different from the last two Paper Mario games, in both story and gameplay; I’ve played it once before but I never got to finish, this time could be it.

★★★★★ So far, I have 53% of the game completed, as well as 44% of the side missions cleared. On the stats I'm a Gunman, I've gotten 19 upgrades, 13 weapons and 28 gold pieces. This game is one of my personal favorites, even if it falls on the short side. Once I beat it in Normal once more, I'll try on the next difficulties for an added challenge.

I also have earned 28 awards, all that adds up to 80.51% of game completion. Besides the graphics downgrade, this is a step-up over the first game, being able to control Spider-Man all over Manhattan, swinging and running everywhere.

[21/08/21](+) With the remaining seven puzzles of Page 5, I’ve solved half of the puzzles of this game. The ninth puzzle was very tricky!

Updated about 1 month ago

☆★★★★ I've solved 75 puzzles out of 150 by now. The first of the Pix games, it's very similar to Picross but using more than 1 color. Sometimes it's easier to figure out the colored squares because of the intersections but it has its tricky parts too. Finally, I'm surprised it's the only one with DLC, although the packs are a bit too expensive when put together...

[21/08/21](+) The second crypt was a little easier thanks to the Fire Wand and my new weapon, but I still had to go buy more medicine.

Updated about 1 month ago

★★★★★ I have 2 of the 8 medallions and I’ve found 5 out of 8 different items; I’ve also gotten 4 life upgrades. I upgraded my armor and my sword once but I still have the starting shield, as well as the Book of Revival. This game is clearly a clone of the first Zelda games, borrowing elements from the first games but at the same time adding a couple different things to set it apart from the Nintendo franchise.

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

Updated about 1 month ago

★★★★★ I’ve cleared 10 out of 30 main stages and I’ve obtained 2 of the 6 Golden Coins. This Mario Land game is more like the regular Super Mario Bros. ones, with returning power-ups and features, but still featuring many different enemies. I also noticed this game doesn’t have a score counter, which is unusual.

[18/08/21] I cleared Arcade on 3-on-3 match, using Nakoruru, Rock and Iori. I got Akuma again as the final boss, but I got a better score.

☆★★★★ I deleted my save file and started over to keep track of which characters I’ve seen the ending of; I’ve played 2 modes of Arcade so far. I’ve only unlocked the groove edit option. It’s great to have so many characters to pick from but some of the combos are hard to pull off with the Gamecube controller.

Updated about 1 month ago

★★★★★ On this playthrough, I picked Xel’lotath, the green Ancient. I’ve completed 4 chapters, and I've performed 6 autopsies. From the Runes section, I’ve found 2 Spell Scrolls, 1 Circle of Power, 2 Alignment Runes and 4 Runes. I can see the chapters don't always take place chronologically so I'm not sure I understand how that works, since things happen in the future and yet the Tome of Eternal Darkness still contains it somehow.

Updated about 1 month ago

☆☆★★★ I'm currently on Chapter 8, I've completed 3 missions from it and 37 overall. I never played the N64 games back then, so I didn't have much to compare this game with. I like the weapons and the environments, even the flying sections, but I'm not fond of the game taking a while to load and it happens every time I die (and there are no checkpoints).

Up until now, I've completed 245 different requests, I've made 26 different recipes and I've worked at least once on all 6 jobs.

It's the first time I try this game, despite hearing about it since it was released on WiiWare.

From the Toy Train, I’ve completed all 10 courses. From the Fish, I’ve completed all 10 tanks. From the Puppet Theather, I’ve gotten all 24 actions (and completed all 3 plays).

From the Extras options I purchased 15 items from Artworks & Videos, and 3 from Goodies; I've also unlocked 24 challenge maps out of 25. It seems this game will have some good amount of replay value when trying to get all coins and the best ranks, which is always a good thing.

★★★★★ I have 3 Badges now, from my Pokédex I've seen a total of 73 Pokémon and I've caught 45 of them. My current party is Onix (level 19), Growlithe (level 17), Jigglypuff (level 21), Zubat (level 20), Fearow (level 21) and Wartortle (level 28). I feel the remakes of Gen 1 games are superior in every way, especially with the new item system and the Pokémon boxes.

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
[12/08/21](!) I cleared stages 7-3 and 7-4 with all 3 medals each. They were surprisingly easy, both getting the medals and clearing them.

Updated about 2 months ago

★★★★★ On the original game, I’ve cleared 32 levels out of 32 with a score of 984300. On Challenge, I’ve gotten 28 Red-coin Medals, 28 High-score Medals and 28 Yoshi’s Egg Medals; my total score is 946250. I’ve obtained 13 pictures from the album, including one of the medals. I like how this game has the original version, the Lost Levels version (although with stuff cut out) and now includes a challenge mode similar to the Mario Advance coins, among other things.

[09/08/21](!) With the remaining 3 stages cleared, I’m done with World 7. Only 1 more regular world remains, and then the special stages.

★★★★★ I've cleared all 95 stages (95 with Mario, 40 with Luigi), and I got a Golden Flag on all 95; also, I've obtained a total of 360 Star Medals (including all 285 that can be obtained from stages by now). From the photographs, I have 11 out of 12, and my profile has 4 sparkling stars. It's always nice to have a Mario game with the classic elements, and new ones to complement it.

☆★★★★ I cleared the game once on Normal difficulty, and now I'm on Extreme; so far I'm on Act III and I’m at Addersping Road West. I’m playing as the Sorceress, I've managed to reach level 24 with her. I have most of her spells available but several of them aren't as useful as before because of how much the enemies' HP has increased, and her melee attacks miss a lot.

[08/08/21] I wish I was as proficient at using Vega as the computer is, but I struggle with him! At least I defeated Zangief, Dhalsim and Ryu.

★★★★★ My current high score is 741609; I’ve cleared the game with 1 character on Champion and with none on Hyper. I picked the Genesis version over the SNES one because the latter is available in other consoles (and to have more games from Sega consoles), but having played that one I can tell there are a few differences like lower sound quality, but for the most part is the same game.

[07/08/21] The 7-0 rule is definitely my least favorite of this game, it really ruins things in an instant. I tried to win match 12 but no luck.

☆☆★★★ I restarted my file in order to get a new Friend Code. I’m playing the tournament on Easy, I’ve won 11 matches out of 15, getting a total of 1124 points and 72% of game progress. I've unlocked 8 extra decks, 2 backgrounds, 3 tiles and 7 cups out of 10. I feel it could’ve used more content but as a whole it’s a decent way to experience Uno on the Wii.

On my game file, I have 1 sparkling star so far. This time I cleared the game using the cannons so I reached the end as fast as possible, now I’ll complete every stage of every world as usual.

★★★★★ At the Gear menu, I have 4 pieces of equipment, the Stone of Agony, the Goron’s Bracelet, the Silver Scale, 9 Heart Pieces (8 hearts overall), 3 Spiritual Stones and 1 medallion; I’ve also defeated 28 Gold Skulltulas. From the items, I have 12 different ones; I’ve also gotten 7 capacity upgrades. I’ve learned 5 songs out of 12 for the Ocarina. The new options allow for easier use of menus, items and keeping the screen less cluttered.

[05/08/21] I started the 3 challenges with the Bronze Dog Tag Challenge, it was harder than expected but after some tries it was clear.

Updated about 2 months ago

☆☆★★★ I cleared all missions and 1 out of 3 extra challenges, reaching a Strike level of 4 and earning a total of 7934500 points. I’ve found all 6 comic covers and all 16 Cerebro files too. I like the plot and combat mechanics, but sometimes this game can be too difficult because there are no mid-level checkpoints and Wolverine has next to zero frames of invincibility, which gets him killed easily.

★★★★★ I have 2 main weapons, 3 sub weapons, 1 usable item and 5 items collected; I’ve found 2 Sacred Orbs as well. From the software, I’ve obtained 6 different ones. This game has become my favorite WiiWare game, with many things to do and huge places to explore with a big sense of accomplishment when I find out all the secrets of the ruins on my own. It offers a good challenge too.

I've completed the Campaign on Veteran, clearing all 16 missions and getting all 46 Intel Pieces (my progress is 100.3% now). Finally, on Multiplayer I'm 5th Prestige and level 70, my latest unlock was the G18 machine pistol; I have 164/553 titles and 126/307 emblems (my progress in this mode is 587%).

[31/07/21](+) I cleared all puzzles from books 29, 30 and 31. I got a third stamp after 9000 points so maybe that’s how I get them?

Updated about 2 months ago

★★★★★ I'm solving the puzzles on Easy, I've solved a total of 182 puzzles and 31 books, collecting 161 shapes, 10264 points and 170 blue jewels. I also have 3 out of 10 stamps. I plan to solve all puzzles on all difficulties for a different experience with each. I like this sequel because it introduces new features like an extra color and how the blocks change shapes making more detailed puzzles.

I have obtained all 25 recipes, 72% of the Monster List completed (130 enemies) and 286 out of 395 entries of the Collector's Book. This game would’ve been better if the script was more polished.

Consider Yourself a Hero: Majority of games are beaten
All right, I did not know it was that different. Well, I will see it when I get to it, I guess.

About the strategy to beat our backlog... yeah, I feel you, when you say that playing games in a forced way makes it feel like a chore, or work. This is one of the reason why my girl-friend only ever plays exactly what she wants and nothing else.

For me, I sometimes also feel like it's a chore, that's why I try to have 3 or 5 games going at the same time, possibly of different genres, or at least, not two games of the same genre. And only ever one RPG at a time.

I know, they're made up rules that could make you feel like it's a chore, but honestly, this way has worked for me and I really feel accomplishment when I see that I'm making progress in my backlog. I have my time sinks, every once in a while I play Sim City 4 or Open TTD or a Total War game or something like that, but I noticed that, even though these games are fun, I feel like I'm missing out on other things.

This, and I don't want to start hundreds of games and never get to their end. I feel unaccomplished that way. I really feel like I missed out on many games I only ever started and never finished. And then I have games I finished like... dozens of times. Sure, they're awesome, otherwise I wouldn't have played them, but for each time I played a game twice, I missed on another game I could have played. And in the current day and age of remakes and remasters, I noticed, playing games again is not really worth it. It'll get a release in the next 10 years anyways...

I have only 8 unfinished games, but I also tend to buy one as soon as I finish one. I try to keep myself from buying anything I won't play soon, because if I will never get around to playing it, it's a waste of money. If it will get a remaster, it's a waste of money. If it gets a game of the year or something edition, it was a waste of money. So I try not to care about sales and the likes, and actually manage to safe some money from just buying what I want to play when I finish something else.

An yes, only 8 unfinished games, but the once I never even started or I don't have anymore are nulled, but it's like a dark-number or things I still somehow have on my "to-do" list. I'll get to it. Someday.

At the end of the day, I hope we just keep in mind, this is a hobby and we should enjoy it. If not, it's not worth it. This web-site helps me to stay on track. Hope you'll find your balance one day too, my friend!

Oh, it's like Spider-Man 3 then, depending on the platform it's a completely different game. Or almost. I'll see which one I'll seek out then, thanks for the heads up!

About your unbeaten games, how are you planning to beat them? Any strategy? Or just playing whatever comes up? I'm trying to really get going with some of them, but it's not easy sometimes, and I end up playing some timesink game like.. I dunno, Sim City 4, Rome Total War, and the likes... ugh! I wish I were more disciplined, but at the same time there are days when I'm so k.o. after work, I just want to relax and do something... easy.

Are you trying to beat the story modes in the Mario Party games? Wow! I don't think I'll ever go there, honestly. I like them as party games, but that's as far as it goes. I prefer to spend my time... on timesinks of other nature, apparently
No, but seriously, I need to get going on the games I have in my backlog, some have been there for ages, and then there's the huge pile of games on top... I'll get to them, some day. I'm in no hurry, I guess. Also, the last years my progress has been slow but steady, that's a start in my eyes

It sounds like you'll pretty much play every Zelda game before you go to the Oracle games. I think (but that's just my opinion) you shouldn't wait that much, especially if you havn't played them yet, and played the other ones already instead...

I havn't read anything about the PoP 2008 plot, I try not to get spoiler about games I havn't played like that. I'll find out when I play it, and all I know is that I really like the artstyle. But lets see if the rest is on par of the other games, and they were pretty solid.

I think I'll try to play Forgotten Sands on another console, not on the Wii, if I ever get around to playing it. We'll see. Other games have a higher priority...

My favourite 2D Zelda is actually Link's Awakening, quickly followed by the two Oracle games. I also liked A Link to the Past, but there were some dungeons that I really couldn't appreciate. I think A Link to the Past is technically really excellent, it's just that I personally didn't quite enjoy it.

On the other hand, The Minish Cap was a bit meh. I liked some parts, but others were less enjoyable. The graphics and music of that game was stellar, but the story was only okay, I didn't particularly like Ezlo, the kin stone were a chore...

But I guess I don't appreciate 2D Zelda games as much as 3D Zelda games, Link's Awakening being the only exception.

But, I guess you can't see it from my BL, I'm playing the Zeldas in the order in which they came out and A Link between Worlds is next, I'm curious to try it, but at the same time I'm afraid I will feel like it's an A Link to the Past remaster of sorts... So I'm also a bit afraid to play it, and not like it.


About Prince of Persia: I played the new Trilogy (and the really old game by Mechner!) but haven't really played any other of the newer games. I wanna try the 2008 game sometime soon, I think it looks really interesting, but haven't gotten around to doing it yet. I'm a slave to my BL, I guess...

I found that the controls were quite bad. Using the "same" input for fighting and interacting and walking? Damn... I really missed my control stick and buttons. I like the DS, but I think they should have kept the classic controls. The touch screen is perfect for games like Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton, but I prefer my Zelda with the classical input methods.
I really love The Wind Waker and I would have preferred to like Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, but the controls really ruin both games for me. And the structure with the central mega dungeon was just...ugh... I really didn't like it. It was better in Spirit Tracks. But in that game, the damn pipe minigame was terrible. And it was again a gimmick....
I was really sad. They are the worse Zelda games, in my opinion. Or at least, they are the ones I had the least fun with. And I really wanted them to be good.
Now that I got a WiiU, I'll try to get some games before they go up price, right now they're not so expensive.
