Now that I've finished all three Metroid Prime games on the Metroid Prime Trilogy disc, I'm picking up from where I left off on Metroid: Other M. I now understand the criticism against the game. One thing that bugs me is how I go up against tough enemies that I wouldn't have been able to build up a substantial amount of energy to fight. Also, during some battles, it's a pain switching back and forth in between the side-scrolling view and the first-person view.

I really gotta get into Metroid.

I'm all the way up to "Sons of Liberty" in my Metal Gear Solid run. Technically my least favorite but it's still great.

It amazes me how much the series has changed since 1987 but it always feels like Metal Gear.

Hope you enjoyed it. It's the best of the classic style Sonic games, imo. Even tops Sonic 2.

Just finished playing both scenarios in the Resident Evil 2 REmake and all I gotta say is, holy sh*t. They actually did it. Capcom finally did it! Capcom actually remembers how to make a Resident Evil game and I honestly couldn't be anymore happy.

Sure, it being a remake may have been a giant contributing factor in shaping the game, but Capcom could have honestly gone in any direction with this and I'm glad it turned out the way it did because this is a shining example of what Resident Evil could be and should be moving forward.

I was initially upset with them going the modernization route and making it over the shoulder because of the stigma that carries with this franchise, but then I saw the game, and you know what, Resident Evil just hasn't looked this much like Resident Evil in so long that it being a remake kind of became an afterthought. While I can gripe about certain things all day if I keep comparing it to the original, the precedent this game sets for future games is just undeniable. More of this please.

I finished Metroid: Other M a couple of days ago. It got better as I advanced since my energy gauge got bigger and I wasn't getting taken out so quickly even by the toughest enemies. The second to final boss in the game was a pain though, since in the first phase of it, I was getting totally bombarded with attacks, and I barely got a chance to get any hits in. In the final phase of the battle, I had to take the boss out with a weapon I didn't even know that I could use yet. So I ended up losing. I went right for my player's guide to see just what the hell went wrong. So once I started over again, I finally defeated that boss. I was annoyed at having to start over since the first phase of the battle was aggravating as all get out, but I was surprised when they started me off at the final phase of the battle.

Miraculously, I actually defeated the final boss twice without ever losing all of my energy, although I came close on the first try.

He's clearly not Shredder. Shredder wouldn't use a gun to kill zombies, let alone play on easy. Besides, I heard Shredder only games on Nintendo platforms. What is this PC nonsense?

I play that game every three to four years and love it more every time! I used to always think Snake Eater was my favorite, but it becomes harder to tell whenever I play Sons of Liberty.

Especially as it builds up to the climax of the game and everything just becomes totally warped and batshit crazy, yet insightful.

Some of the sections are a chore to get through though. The swimming comes to mind as a giant roadblock within a section of the game I very much enjoy otherwise.

Lately, I've been playing the Resident Evil 2 Remake. Fantastic game. Possibly my favorite survival/horror game next to Dead Space 2 and Resident Evil 4. Lets just call those my "trifecta".

Ahem, Dead Space 1 is pretty damn great too.

I'm now looking forward to Kingdom Hearts 3, but since I'm such a casual fan, I think I'll be able to hold out until they patch it to hell. I'm seeing a lot of difficulty complaints, along with evidence that they will be patching this game to improve it quite a bit, over the next few months. Judging by my Final Fantasy XV experience, I can definitely see that as a possibility.
