☆★★★★ While there are a few minor QoL improvements, this also feels like a step back from EDF5 in some ways, with several poor design choices. The biggest one is that the time travel story (ugh) feels like it was a cheap excuse for Sandlot to recycle a ton of missions from EDF5 instead of creating new ones. On top of that, some of those are used multiple times! The 4 classes are once again shockingly poorly balanced, with "just use Fencer" being a winning strategy for practically all situations. 7/10

☆★★★★ KZM is one of the Vita's prettiest, and fun, but it does have a few issues. Maps are confusing, and the game's sometimes vague about where you're supposed to be going. Just haphazardly telling me to "find the elevator" on a poorly-conveyed 3-storey map with no markings, while large groups of enemies endlessly swarm into each area, provides naught but annoyance. For some reason, melee seems stronger than any gun, and even provides invincibility frames. The game is very short, too. 7/10

☆☆★★★ This game is pretty much what it looks like - EDF for children. Almost all of the music is recycled from the mainline games in the series. The characters crack 4th wall-breaking jokes that get old fast, and have obnoxious personalities that seem to be straight out of a modern kids' cartoon. The online has been practically dead since launch, getting to 100% is much faster and easier than any game in the main series, and then you have a horrific post-game grind for weapons and armor. 5/10

I'm a pretty decent source for obscure, because I'm into some of the weirder stuff. I like the mainstream stuff, too, but I'm all about new experiences, and sometimes, you have to dig kinda deep to find the good ones buried in the indie landfill. If you're interested...

Broken Reality is a first-person Adventure that satirizes the absurdity of what social media has become, and has a very unique aesthetic, which is what drew me in at first. The end isn't so great, but the journey up to that point is nothing short of magnificent. That and it's basically Vaporwave: The Video Game; the screenshot I linked is from an area called Geo City.

Luxuria Superbia is... I don't really want to spoil it, but it's something I think everyone should play. It's somewhat similar to Child of Eden, and is one of the few times I will ever say that the preferred method of play would be on a smartphone or tablet... though it doesn't work on newer operating systems; my tablet can't run it, for whatever reason. Still works just fine on PC with a mouse, rather than a touchscreen.

Transistor is kind of a spiritual follow-up to Bastion, but is a very different game. The gameplay is something like a real-time turn-based strategy action-adventure with light-to-moderate RPG elements, contradictory as that might seem. Took me a little while to really get into it, but the beach areas are what finally won me over.

That's what happens when you consult a linguist; we answer questions from some of the strangest perspectives. Well, linguist by nature; I'm more of a desk jockey/corporate drone these days. I was thinking FOR SURE there'd be a Sonic game where I could play as Knuckles and stick to the side of a tree, but I'm not sure there is; you could do that with the same one in Sonic 3, but it'd be pointless. Oddly enough, that one was probably the hardest for me to find entries.

Though my brain isn't wired in such a way to provide a good set of 10 questions, I have been personally haunted by one, which I will pass on to you: have you ever created a video game in your dreams? If so, was it a wholly new experience, or just a remix of things from other games?

Confused: Playing 10+ games at once
1. What is your favourite game where one of the characters sings (or can potentially sing depending on how you play) at some point?

Easily Grandia II. I mean, I’m replaying it right now, aren’t I?

2. What's your favourite game that has no voices whatsoever (not even grunts or computer generated speech)?

I think all of the 8/16 bit Sonic games ought to count, right? Well, except Triple Trouble 16 bit. Gonna say Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Best played through Sonic 3 AIR.


3. What's your favourite game where the main character is not blue and also does not/can not wear anything blue at any point?

Gonna say Dante’s Inferno. I need to get back to my replay on Xbox Series X. At least, I’m pretty damn sure his cap doesn’t count as “blue”. More of a wire grey mesh.

4. Out of all of the games you've played that contain bloodstains on walls or floors, which one do you like the most?

Resident Evil 2 1998. My favorite way to play it is on Dreamcast.

5. What's your favourite game in which you can see a human baby?

Resident Evil 8, though I still haven’t beaten it myself. I saw Rose at the beginning, I don’t really want to think about more games that have babies, so I’m saying that.

6. What is your favourite game where you can go inside a submarine?

Has to be Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon on N64 (I specify N64 because there are like 3 or 4 games with the same title. 3 if you don’t count the PS2 “Mystical Ninja Goemon”, and 4 if you do.)

7. Which game do you like the most that does NOT contain a desert area?

There’s a lot I could answer here, like Yakuza and the original Resident Evils, but I’m gonna say the original Diablo.

8. What's your favourite game that shows at least one motorcycle?

I was going to say Shadow the Hedgehog, but then I remembered that one scene from Bayonetta. So that, probably.

9. What's your most preferred game in which none of the playable characters can fly at any point (with or without the aid of a vehicle)?

Diablo II, unless you count the Leap skill as flying. Is jumping ‘flying’?

10. What's your favourite game that contains ice cream?

The first ones that comes to mind is Yakuza 6, even though I find it to be one of the weaker Yakuza games.

Very interesting questions; I had some fun with this!

1) Yakuza 0; could be any of the Yakuza games, and 0, 2, and 5 are my favorites, but 0 is probably at the top of that list.
2) Live-A-Live by default, since it's my all-time favorite, and one of the playable characters in the Prehistoric chapter is a monkey. I'm assuming gorillas count, anyway. If not, probably Adventure Island 4, since I'm pretty sure there's one in one of the minigames.
3) The Seiken Densetsu 3 remake, bafflingly named Trials of Mana.
4) Broken reality, which also has the best billboard: [Link]
5) If Princess Tomato in Salad Kingdom is too kinky an answer, then Islands: Non-Places; the pineapple diorama is probably my favorite one, too.
6) Does transforming into and out of a vehicle count, if it serves the same function? If so, Anodyne 2. If not, then probably Borderlands 2.
7) This was a tough one, because I'd have to choose between Bit Generations: Coloris and Luxuria Superbia, but I think I'll lean to the former.
8) Haven, which, interestingly enough, is how you level up your characters: build up your relationship meter, then get blitzed on space moonshine with space wifey/husbando. Okay, space applejack, I guess, but the two aren't all that different.
9) Would Faxanadu count? The whole game takes place in a giant tree, but there is both jumping and climbing. If not, probably Sonic 3 (with Knuckles), since you can climb a tree in Angel Island Zone by running along the inside of the trunk. Maybe Ristar? Dose grabbing the tree, and gaining height by slamming your head into it repeatedly count as climbing or jumping?
10) Transistor, specifically The Spine; I don't play a ton of games that have lyrics, so this one was a bit easier.

"Aw come on!" Seems a bit normie, doesn't it, MrFwibbles?

Oh my God I hope the new Mario movie isn't gonna make a reference to a meme or something.

Sonic 1 does Sanic, Space Jam 2 does Big Chungus... ah who am I kidding, the movie was made by Americans in the post post modern world, the probability is high. Like can you imagine Luigi going "spaghetti!" or something? That'd be a good way for somebody in the theater to go "Oh my God, [bleep] off!" while laughing hysterically.

EDIT: Well there'll definitely be a Zelda allusion... no, reference... no, it's the current day, Easter egg, that you will no doubt miss. Remember when the 1994 Flintstones movie had the Jetsons theme coming from an ice cream truck? I'm expecting there to be something like that.

EDIT EDIT: I had a laugh attack Yukiko style just now at the mere thought of the Mario movie grinding everything to a halt to do a "spaghetti!" or "I hope she made lotsa spaghetti!" We're so creatively bankrupt now that I can see them doing that and it's a laugh riot. Oh I haven't laughed like that since the Animaniacs 2020 Donald Trump statue thing in the last episode of season 1. In hindsight it was the only thing that made me laugh out loud during the reboot.

Also, random aside, I'm getting fed up with people's liberal use of the word "literally", like it's just become a filler word at this point when people can't think of any other words. (If it was you who posted that, I made a save state before I said that.)
“I'm defending the Earth! ...I might as well protect you too.”
