Re: Celeste (Switch)

My only real complaints center around the controls. It probably has more to do with the joycons, but I found that, far too often, I would dash in one direction when I pressed in a different direction. I always use the D-pad for platformers like this for precisely this reason and didn't have any iss...

Re: 2018/2/10: Nintendo Switch: Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

If anything, this game is proof that ideas that sound bad on paper can still be executed well.

No clue why they didn't make any effort to cross over with Rayman too though considering the Rabbids first appeared in a Rayman game.

Celeste (Switch)

This is hands-down one of the best platformers I've ever played, possibly even better than Super Mario Odyssey. The gameplay is brutally challenging and bears a superficial resemblance to Super Meat Boy while the main gimmick of air-dashing is more reminiscent of Mega Man X. In spite of these compar...

Re: This months's free PS+ games

Spelunker HD (this literally just looks like Spelunky with a new coat of paint. Meh.) Although Spelunky was very loosely inspired by Spelunker, which originated on home computers in the early 80s before getting an infamously hard NES version, in reality the two games have very little in common. Spe...

Re: New Tomb Raider Movie!

Rampage baffles me. There are about a thousand games that are more deserving of a movie adaptation, and yet they picked a relatively forgotten arcade game that barely even had anything resembling a plot? Also, it's releasing on April 20th (incidentally the same day as Nintendo Labo), so make of that...

Re: Recommend some anime!

This is technically a game, but it's gotten a ton of attention lately, is heavily anime-inspired, and deconstructs a lot of anime tropes, so I can't resist recommending Doki Doki Literature Club. For those of you unaware of it, it's a free visual novel game available on PC. For the first two hours, ...

Re: Recommend some anime!

It's very possible you've already seen these considering how famous they are, but Cowboy Bebop is one of the few anime I've seen where I prefer the dub and in fact can't imagine it any other way, and Studio Ghibli's movies are typically stellar. It helps that both of these don't really give off a we...

Re: Nintendo Labo

This concept grows on me the more I read about it. It's definitely out of left field and not exactly the sort of announcement we expected, but I think it looks genuinely cool and although I am wary of the price for that robot game, I look forward to seeing if this turns out to be worth it. The Switc...

Re: The depressing reality of some Nintendo fans (a rant)

This was a Direct Mini , and the announcements in those generally aren't as potentially groundbreaking as the ones in a regular Direct. NintendoLife has noted that it usually doesn't take too long for Nintendo to follow up a Direct Mini with a full Direct, so I wouldn't make any snap judgments until...

Re: 2017/12/23: Nintendo Switch: Sonic Forces

Never played Sonic Forces, but Sonic Mania is so good I think it's absolutely worth biting the bullet and downloading. It's pretty telling that even before both games came out, the vast majority of Sonic fans were far more excited for Mania than Forces.
