Dusted off Blaster Master Zero last night. I started out thinking it was pretty neat, but it really got its hooks into me by the end. The breadcrumb-trail of power-ups is beautifully designed, and kept me exploring every nook and cranny, with a couple of pretty neat solutions on the way.

There was one cave in Area 3 that annoyed me slightly (thought I needed a key; I didn't), but I thought the difficulty balancing was good - it starts to become more challenging when it needs to, I think. I don't reckon I'll go back to play as a DLC character - at least not for a while - but the alternate characters do appear to have a big effect on the gameplay, which is good.

Just binge played all the Danganronpa games. They're a lot more fun than I was expecting. Basically a mix between Ace Attorney and the Zero Escape games. Watched the Danganronpa 3 anime too to get some better context and backstory. I'm all set for when V3 gets released this month!

I beat Mario 64 for the first time with all 121 stars this weekend.



I beat SMT 4: Apocalypse a little while ago, then went through again to get the best demons, and then beat the DLC's.

Finally completed BotW and it was cool, but I do think it is a bit overrated in all honesty. Also finished replaying Pokemon Moon and I really didn't enjoy the experience that much. I wanted to replay the game because I felt like I rushed it when it came out and I could hardly remember anything months after. Now that I've completed it again I can say that Sun and Moon are one of my least favorite games in the series.

Beat Blaster Master Zero. Really solid remake, very good game.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

Just done the credits of Breath of the Wild. Happy. Like Ocarina of Time, the ending scenes left me with a strong feeling of affection for the two characters, and the game overall - they close these games in such a touching way. Just lovely. What a game.

Plenty of Shrines left to find/complete, but no hurry.

Felt like revisiting some old GC/Wii classics the other day so I put my Wii back up. Finished Pikmin 1 this afternoon, still a very enjoyable game and a gem of the GameCube but the free spirit of the Pikmin annoyed me at times. Like, "No, don't pluck that flower!", "No, not the grass! Y'all already flowers!" or "Did I call you just now? No, so stay idle!" (when I walk through idle Pikmin, they start following me). Actually died at the final boss. Never saw the death screen and I have played through the game a bunch of times.

Next up, Pikmin 2!

Metroid: Samus Returns.

It was pretty good. Countering gets a bit annoying halfway trough (with the enemies constantly charging at you) but as you get stronger it becomes unnecessary.
The controls do get kinda frantic, specially during boss fights where you gotta hold the R/L buttons, switch weapons with the touch screen. (I hate the robot boss BTW)

Other than that, it feels great seeing Samus... uhh, return. It has the same atmosphere as the previous games, many familiar tunes and unique visuals. Some refer to it as reimagining more than a remake because it changed so much. I've never played the original to completion but I can see by the opening areas how different it is.
I give it a Samus out of Aran - Very good.

Shovel Knight. (Shovel Knight's campaign)
Got every achievement and completed every challenge. I felt great for about seven minutes. Now Specter Knight...

Holy cow! Every achievement? Nice work!

I literally just finished Plague Knight about five minutes ago, but haven't got all the achievements or even touched the challenges. That said, I just want to say how much I enjoyed Plague Knight - I actually liked it more than Shovel Knight. The story was really cute, and I liked how it is interwoven with the Shovel Knight campaign (which I also enjoyed, by the way). I prefer the weapons and moves of Plague Knight, with that triple jump and floating action - it made moving through the levels feel zippier and the controls were also slightly less awkward (not having to push down when jumping was a real improvement, IMHO). A really, really good 2D platformer.

I'll probably have a break for a few months, then tackle Spectre Knight - by which time we should also have King Knight. Actually looking forward to it even more now, having experienced how well Yacht Club manages to change up the gameplay in each campaign - even when they don't actually change the level design, as in Plague Knight.

Pokemon Sun - I just got to the end credits a little while ago. I really enjoyed this game, and overall I liked a lot of the new ideas that it brought to the table. Trials were a nice change of pace (though I would like to see gyms return at some point, or at least a combination of both), and this game had my favorite main story since Black 2. The story at times seemed to focus more on Lillie than the player, but I found that I didn't mind that much.

Really, my only main gripe with this game was the railroading in terms of the plot, at least near the beginning:

Kukui: Let's go to Iki Town, cousin!
Me: Great! Just let me backtrack and try to catch a Pichu...
Walks three steps in the other direction
Kukui: No, not that way! Is the sun in your eyes?
Me: ...Seriously?

I still think they need a sort of "I've played this before" mode. Plus, if ten-year-old me could figure out how to play Pokemon Gold properly, I'm pretty sure most kids today don't need this much fencing.

SOS battles were kind of hit or miss for me; the extra challenge was nice at times, but it became a pain if you were genuinely trying to catch something.

I'll probably spend some time yet with post-game stuff (though I hear there isn't too much), catching legendaries/UBs, and training up some of my favorite 'Mon.

I beat Metroid: Samus Returns while I was on vacation.

Good Metroid game. Never really enjoyed the original Metroid II, but this version is polished enough for to really get into. As with most 3DS games, it looks 100x better on the actual console and in 3D than it does in preview footage. I was a bit worried about MercurySteam being the developer, but they did great work here: this feels like proper 2D Metroid. I really liked the way the free-aiming and parrying changed the flow of the game. Also, final boss battle is a really cool throwback to Super Metroid.

I guess if I had any criticism... it's a good game, but it never truly surprised me like Metroid Fusion and Zero Mission did. There was no moment where it felt truly inspired to me. It was just a really solid Super Metroid-style game (although obviously different due to the focus on hunting Metroids). And, honestly, that's enough for me.



Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
Really good game. Not too easy, not too hard. I liked world exploration more than I thought I would and the battle mechanics are spot-on. Lacks a bit of polish. I found a bug where I can get two enemies in one square that can be recreated really easily. Here's a picture of the bug:

SteamWorld Dig 2
I love SteamWorld series. Took me a week to 100% it. Compared to original Dig, it's bigger, better and extra polished.

Pokémon White 2
Replayed this one because I really enjoyed it back when it came out and I haven't played it since. It was fun playing at the same time with my sister.

I've been playing it once every couple of weeks. Simple game. Nothing special. Started with the bow girl. Still need to finish it with the other two characters.

Picross S
Just finished last Mega Picross. Needs more puzzles but otherwise great. Crashed once which is unusual for this kind of game.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

Finished Mario/Rabbids ( I really liked the game, though in the end, it was a bit too easy for me). Working on Golf Story now as well as NBA2K17 (which I will never finish, though). Also started Pankapu recently.

Metroid samus returns. Took me exactly 10 hours and 4 minutes. Short enough to not get bored. Its a good game and with blaster master zero and this one beaten i think i can also say that i like metroidvanias. Going on a genocide mission can be fun. I took it like goddess samus came to punish the unfaithful babylons. Luckily one cute soul embraced the goddess^^

Now i am waiting for superstar saga.

Forma.8 100%. (for the second ending) This game needs to be in everyone's library. It's a gem
Next game up is Thimbleweed Park.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

Metroid: Samus Returns awhile ago.


  • Free Aim, Teleport Stations, and the Melee Counter are all fantastic additions that should be staples of 2D Metroid from here on out.
  • While it may not be as memorable as other Metroids in the boss department, the Metroid encounters are infinitely improved beyond the Metroid II originals, and there's a couple suprises.
  • That baby Metroid is just too cute, and I love how it helps you explore & assists in fighting Ridley, not to mention how it floats around Samus' cockpit on the main menu after the fact.
  • Gets the formula right, and is as solid as you can expect from Metroid.


  • SR388 wasn't a particularly interesting place to explore. Don't get me wrong, the attention to detail in the backgrounds is fabulous, but there's really no biome consistency, outside of maybe Areas 7 & 8. The areas aren't given any interesting names (just Area 1, Area 2, etc.), and you may see Swampland, Mechanical Ruins, Volcanic Flows, and Mineral Caves all within a few rooms of each other in the same Area.

Overall it's a great game, but I don't think it'll go down as my favorite Metroid game, or even 3DS game I've played this year.

I recently completed Earthbound Beginnings (also known as Earthbound 0 and Mother) on the Wii U VC. Definitely an old-school RPG that was rife with balancing issues and grinding, the latter of which I'm not too fond of in the long run. To counter that, however, was a charming story with some great moments; some of these were minor dialog segments, while others were full-on scenes that brought a smile to my face.

Overall I enjoyed Beginnings, but I felt that Earthbound improved on the formula in nearly every way. It's still nice to see how the series began and to see what ideas Earthbound borrowed from its older sibling.

...To be fair though, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed the game as much if not for the kind folks over at and their EB0 guide. XD

Just seen the credits roll on Yoshi's Woolly World.

I set about trying to finish it a few months back but got frustrated on what turned out to be the penultimate level (if I'd have realised I would have persevered) so took a break from it. Then booted it up last night and didn't take long to get past the bit that was frustrating me. Glad the boss level wasn't too taxing.

Gave up on going for 100%, but completed it on Classic mode with no badges used. Perhaps one day I'll go back to it to 100% a few more levels.

Some of it was great, some fine, some annoying. Didn't really care much for the more maze-like levels.

Overall I think it was a bit of a missed opportunity as it could be an absolute classic with a bit more variety to the gameplay and a bit more emphasis on fun stuff, transformations etc. Plus the soundtrack could be better - there's one standout classic, plus Yoshi's regular theme tune, but the rest of the tracks didn't really make an impression on me.

I still love Yoshi, but I won't particularly miss his flutter jump sound - sounds like he's constipated.
