Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves (I'm playing it but i'm very close to the end, so here's what I thought of it: )

The third entry on the stealth platformer series, and this one gets some criticism for having too many minigames. There's airplane piloting sections, tower defense sections, boat sections and a lot of RC Car missions. It's also been streamlined in comparison to 2, there are still large open ended levels, but you no longer need to figure out how to reach a mission marker since the levels are less vertical.
To be honest, I actually liked having to figure out how to reach the objective marker, but some would be annoyed to walk around so much just to reach the objective.

There's also more playable characters, but I'm not a huge fan of them. Overall, I feel they tried to diversify the gameplay so much, the stealth/platforming took a back seat. I also found it easier than 2. There's always that one annoying mission but you can always get past it with some tries.

Still, there are some things I actually really liked about this title.

  • There's only one of each level, unlike Sly 2 which had two of the same level (2 Prague and Canada levels, for example.)
  • You don't need to stand still and open first person mode to see markers, you can see them while walking, which is very practical and improves the game's pacing.
  • There's the pirate level with ship battles, which are really fun and addicting. Easily one of the highest points of the game.
  • The writing in this one is one of the best in the series, probably the funniest one. Not that the other games were lacking in this aspect, but 3 made me laugh a lot.

Ever Oasis - This took a bit of a backseat while I was trying to 100% Twilight Princess HD, but now I've picked it up again. I'm currently in the middle of the dungeon for the third Lumite, with my character at level 12 and my Oasis at level 14. I'm still having quite a bit of fun with this game, though I probably need to start taking it easy with some of the sidequests. XD I feel like I'm over halfway through the main story at this point.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (Wii U VC) - I've only shoved in a couple of sessions so far (just started it this past weekend), but I think I'm already starting to see why this game is held in such high regard. I just got through Kero Sewers and took a nice, frantic ride down a river full of coins.

Super Mario Odyssey. I've completed the main game and I'm going through each kingdom from the beginning and collecting every moon and local currency. I had just completed the Cap and Mushroom Kingdoms and have moved on to the Cascade Kingdom. There seems to be many more hours of gameplay ahead of me yet.

I'm also still playing Miitopia which is such a goofy joy to play. I'm working on grabbing all the medals. At least it gives me an excuse to keep coming back as I would hate to start from scratch (a sequel/Switch port couldn't come soon enough).

I'm really trying to get Breath of Fire IV out of my backlog before my copy of Octopath Traveler gets here. BoF4 isn't a mind-blowing example of the JRPG genre or anything, but it's mostly pretty darn well-executed and it has a lot of heart. The pixel animation and art are gorgeous (I really love this era of Capcom visuals), the turn-based battle system is rock solid and easy to understand (while incorporating some really neat wrinkles, like spell combos, the ability to learn certain moves from monsters and NPC "masters" that provide your party with new moves & alter how your characters grow), the main gameplay is often mixed up by one-off mini-games, and the music and world both have a distinct, pre-industrial East Asian flair that you don't get from many other games in this genre outside of Suikoden. And even as someone who doesn't normally care for expansive fishing sub-games in video games (Animal Crossing is usually about my level of desired fishing "complexity"), it's actually been pretty fun for me here.

The main characters aren't terribly complex (aside from presumable main antagonist Fou-Lu, whose story I find increasingly fascinating, and maybe Nina), but they are quite charming and distinct, and the main plot itself isn't afraid to occasionally delve into some truly dark territory or even get somewhat philosophical while still allowing for stretches of goofiness and whimsy.

I'm also gradually working my way through Last Window: The Secret of Cape West, after sitting on my imported copy for a few years. RIP Cing.

I'm currently working on some older titles.

I can totally see why Yoshi's Island is such a favourite from the SNES era (playing it on my SNES mini), with it's art style, sound and music, and innovation, but am beginning to wonder if it will suffer in the same way Yoshi's Woolly World did in terms of levels just getting longer and harder, at the expense of the fun most of the time. Trying to do a level a day when I can find the time.

I tried taking the same 'one level a day' approach with Kirby: Triple Deluxe, but I am beginning to think Kirby might be my favourite video game character ever, as I found myself doing quite a few levels yesterday, and then gorging even more in the evening playing Kirby's Adventure Wii. I wish every game could be as charming and creative as these - pure gold.

I'm currently playing through 2 games right now, them being:
Splatoon 2 - While I really liked the first Splatoon game, I could never really get into it due to the awkward gyro controls of the Wii U gamepad so I didn't bother getting Splatoon 2 at launch but because of a lack of games to play, I decided to give the franchise another shot and HOO BOY am I glad I did because I've been absolutely addicted to this game and have been playing it practically non-stop for the past two weeks. I've completed both the main campaign (which was decent) and the Octo Expansion (which was excellent and a huge step-up from the main campaign). The only thing I need to do in the Octo Expansion now is beat the effing secret inner agent 3 battle which I SORELY underestimated just how difficult it would actually be. Since I've basically 100% the single-player content now, I'll spent more time doing Salmon Run and Turf Wars which are both extremely fun as well.

Hollow Knight - Can't say much since I'm only 3 hours in but from the limited amount I've played, this game is incredible and is already showing signs in being just as good as the Metroid games. It also doesn't help that the game has a wonderful art-style and atmosphere going for it. I can see why this game has such a huge fan following and I'm looking really forward to playing more of it.

Pokemon Silver on 3DS. Once I've put probably 100-200 hours into my current playthrough I'll transfer my pokemon to the pokebank and start a new playthrough. Put 200+ hours when Silver first came out way back when in 2000, compared to 150+ hours into Red version and about 50-90 hours in Blue.

It's one of those games that I'll likely be playing for the rest of my life. To me, it's the perfect Pokemon game and one of the greatest games ever created.

I'm just hoping for SoulSilver to be re-released on the 3DS or the Switch at some point.

All hail the mighty Glow Cloud

I'm stiil busy with TOKYO MIRAGE SESSIONS which is absolutly great, I couldn't imagine to have that solid gameplay with this game, WOW really really really well done !

I gave a try to DETROIT BECOMES HUMAN and I was blown away because I'm not the target for those kind of games but MY GOODNESS... What a well made game in every way possible. Great characters building, Awesome subjects and events, fantastic visuals, gorgeous sound-design and touching way to make you feel something different than usual with videogames... BRAVO !

Started playing Oblivion on the Xbox One. I never played it (Skyrim was my first TSE game) and after enjoying Skyrim on the Switch, I decided to check it out since Oblivion is part of the Game Pass now on Xbox One. I am actually enjoying it alot more the. Skyrim even though the graphics are dated compared to Skyrim.

God of War (2005).

Playing the Vita/Collection version. The cutscenes are super compressed, but the framerate is ok. R2/L2 controls were mapped to the touchpad, which can be kinda annoying.

On the game itself, I played a bit of it ages ago on the PS2, but I don't think I even got past the hydra.
Overall, to me it's been kinda frustrating, not gonna lie. Some very annoying puzzles and areas. I specially hate the room where you have a short time limit to kick a box around before spikes rise and you die. From what I remember the PSP titles were way more straightforward and linear in terms of progression.

Warhammer Total War. Been a fan of the series (historical) since late 90's, played most of them (though not all the DLC's).

I've tried to boycott the series after buying Attila because I feel like I'm being part of corporate nickel diming of DLC's.

Totally different gameplay, just much more angles in terms of the paper rock scissor mechanics of the past. The actual battle gameplay is excellent it's definitely tuned for this. The battle map part is great but you can tell it's been nipped a bit to again serve the multiplayer aspect. Siege is underwhelming, no naval combat, no family tree, etc.

AI though is much much smarter and diplomatic angle is a lot more enjoyable (they would actually find an undefended town the AI know it'd be hard for you to break, then suit for peace ie balancing their chips). For years I've never had to worry about being flanked by computer as long as I got infantry on the wings, but now not only would they flank but use cavalry effectively by disengaging before charging again.

Glad I bought it for less than 20 bucks, not that it's a bad game but just not as engaging as the older historical games.

The follow up (3 Kingdoms) look like a Warhammer-type of fantastical gameplay in a historical setting...so I might I just wait for Medieval 3 in 3 years.

Banner Saga 3!
The games really do get prettier with every iteration.
And more depressing.

Never want to come down, never want to put my feet back down on the ground.
