Basically a Mario Party mini-game collection drawing from the ten main games in the series. Also features a new version of the Mini-Game Island from the first one. It had Face Lift, so I was pretty much sold from Day 1. XD

My latest gaming purchase! I've been wanting a Sega Saturn for a long time, and I finally got one! I also got the Saturn version of Mega Man 8, too! The system is in terrific condition, and it also came with Skeleton Warriors, and two mint condition controllers as well! I had to buy Mega Man 8 separately, and I spent $219 on it. I've been saving up for a really long time to get that version, and I'm so happy to finally have it! I spent about $150 on the console, so I feel like I got a pretty good deal on it. I'm going to have to replace the consoles battery, though, because otherwise I can't save my game data to the system memory. I was surprised to learn that the Saturn uses a CR2032 battery, which you can buy just about anywhere, and it's easy to change out without having to take the system apart.

Recently, Iíve been playing Tales of Symphonia and Animal Crossing, both for the GameCube. Good games that hold up well, imo.

Am I bound to be disappointed by Breath of the Wild at this point? We all know how easily unrealistic expectations can get after a surge of game-industry/community hype.

I'm thinking of picking up a Switch in the next week or two, mainly to play this.

Btw, the last game I played was "Inside" on PS4. I can easily recommend this to almost anyone. I played through the 2-3 hours in one sitting, knowing very little going in, and enjoyed the hell out of it.

How you feel all really depends on what you want from a Zelda game.

I don't think people would be off base to call this the next Ocarina of Time. It does a lot to change the way you play and view a Zelda game, and introduces so many new elements and ideas that will no doubt shape the future of the series.

While the game is true to its roots with its directionless and beautiful massive open world, the new free-roam structure also feels like it compromises a lot of what made fans like previous 3D titles such as Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess.

Story progression, dungeons, bosses, combat, rewards, and items are all done in a way that caters to this new open-world approach, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but also makes you question whether or not you'd rather sacrifice all those things in favor of this new structure.

Personally, I don't think Breath of the Wild is the ultimate Zelda experience that people are hyping it up to be. However, what's here does feel like the perfect foundation for such a game. But don't get me wrong, the game is still very much worth your time. After all, these are all things I've had time to think about after spending over 200 joyous hours with the game.

Turo, lately every time you type something, it feels like you think you're in school trying to impress a teacher with an essay, haha. It's not a knock or anything, just everything you say feels so formal.

LMAO! Probably because I have been in school for the past year and have written SO MANY papers. I also generally just try to organize my thoughts very clearly. But I'm gonna stick with the school thing.

Recently downloaded End of Zoe and it was AMAZING, I would pay good money for a Resident Evil game where Joe Baker is the protagonist.

I've never played a Shin Megami Tensei game before, and I blind bought the Soul Hackers remake on 3DS. I really like the characters and the dungeons. It feels like a game from the late '90s, but not in a way that makes it unplayable.


I think that with this game and Code of Princess, ATLUS has become my favorite developer.

So after burning through Batman: Return to Arkham, I've finally been able to play Arkham Knight and have recently finished it. I'm currently working through the extra DLC episodes, but holy sh*t, what a game. It's easily the best for me. They really upped their game in so many ways.

The story is just a vast improvement over previous games. The Arkham Knight may have been a dumb and pointless identity and the reveal wasn't really shocking either, but there were still plenty of big shockers and moments throughout. You can really feel the sh*t piling on Batman's shoulders in this game and the way they went about handling it all was very satisfactory.

Free-flow combat is even more fluid as is traversing the city. Combos are no longer ruined by downed enemies or enemies too far to attack or counter. The quickfire exploding gel has even received a much needed streamlined revision that makes it easier to use in combat and the the wide array of new moves keeps the combat from getting stale.

I honestly don't get why there's so much criticism for the Batmobile. Sure, it's a big part of the game, but you're still going to be gliding around Gotham, beating up bad guys, and doing stealth for the majority of the game. And it's not like the Batmobile itself was awful to use. I actually really enjoyed the many ways it was implemented and it only further added to the feel of Batman (tank battles aside, of course).

I will say however, recycling the Arkham Knight tank battle for Deathstroke was really cheap and unnecessary. I genuinely enjoyed the battle the first time with the Arkham Knight, as it was really tense, but doing it a second time was overkill.

The boss fights in this game were pretty weak in general, which is true for most of the games. Arkham Origins is the only one to have good boss fights all around. Though, this is definitely the better game overall, so I didn't really mind it too much, considering this series isn't exactly known for its boss fights.

Honestly, I hope this is the last we see of this series. It was a good end and continuing it would only cheapen the legacy of these games. Right now, I'd prefer if Rocksteady moved onto a new superhero, specifically Superman, and do him justice like they did Batman. If they ever return to Batman, it should be under a new title, set in a new universe, with a different art style. Though, I take it WB is already working on another game.
