I finished Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu just now. 🙂
It was okay game, I wasn't really fan of Pokemon games but at least I could finish this game. I started to play this game in 1 January 2019 and finished the storyline today 25 September 2022. It took almost 4 years to finish the game as I rarely touch my Pokemon games as I have said I wasn't really a fan of Pokemon games so my hype with the games was pretty low and took longer times to finish one game.
I gave the score 6.5 / 10.
Why 6.5 ?
Because it was pretty boring but at least playable.

My personal opinion, Pokemon games are "mediocre" if I compared with other monster taming breeding games like Yokai Watch or Monster Rancher. I don't understand why peoples like the 1 vs 1 battle from Pokemon games that for me it looked pretty boring with Hit n Slap style battle (I hit, you hit, repeat and rinse) comparing with other monster taming games that you can have 3 vs 3 battle with more strategic battle system.
Even Nexomon Extinction with 2D style graphic have better MP using like standard RPG games instead of using PP like Pokemon games that basically Final Fantasy 1 / 3 NES style magic using that limited by amount of number of MP capacity depend on its level.
Well, I know I'm different since I have different life experiences and gaming experiences that shaped how do I play the games.

Today I finished Dark Chronicle for the PlayStation 2. Another game that will give me warm memories, whenever I think about it. The gameplay is nice enough, but it takes some patience from time to time to keep going. The real strengh is the atmosphere and the music. It is simply peaceful and lovely, even in the dungeons. I can not really say which game I like better, this or Dark Cloud.

@Anti-Matter

I hope Yokai Watch for the Switch will be released in the west.

I recently reached the end credits in Stretchmo/Fullblox by completing Mallo's Playtime Plaza. I've also finished Poppy's Sculpture Square. I still have quite a few puzzles to go in Corin's Fortress of Fun and Papa Blox's NES Expo. The whole bundle is worth it if one enjoys the previous Pushmo/Pullblox titles and also wants the cheapest way to buy them all (Saving roughly $4). Quite a few fun puzzles, and some can be difficult (ESPECIALLY in NES Expo, the hardest pack of 50).

While I haven't delved much into the Stretchmo Studio mode yet, it allows the player to create puzzles and share them via QR code by using tools and hazards unlocked in other areas of the game.

@GoombaKing64 I'm sorry to hear that! The side characters personalities were very engaging and fun to me, plus gathering all the gold and silver feathers is really a fun challenge. I enjoyed the graphical style, and once you have about 10 golden feathers and a silver feather or two the gameplay/controls are super fun. It was a very cheap game too so I thought, for being a small game I was mostly using as a short break, it was really outstanding.

Games I'm playing right now:
Kingdom Hearts 2 - PS4
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 - Switch
Ace Attorney Trilogy - Switch
Zelda 1 - Switch Online

Today it was the jump and run Donald Duck Quack Attack for the PlayStation 2. I expected this game to be the same as the PC version but those games are really different. I prefer the PC version. It feels happier. The difficulty in the PlayStation 2 version is surprisingly hard. The game is good enough for a simple playthrough.

@Tyranexx will like this, I finished Wario Land 2 last night! It's a pretty good game that I missed out on during its original GBC run. I do like how every level has their own objective, and that there aren't any lives to run out of - instead, it all depends on how much coins you can hold on to by not taking as much damage. I can't say I'm super into that treasure minigame, however - I kinda prefer how the first Wario Land did the treasures, where once you find them, they're yours right away. I suppose that would've made things too easy in WL2, though. But overall, I did like it. I'll move on to Wario Land 3 next, since I got that alongside WL2. Recently, I did hear WL3's the weakest one, but hey, I may as well give it a shot and see what I think.

So I completed Splatoon 3’s story mode and beat the extra level a couple weeks ago. I have since then played about 30 hours of turf wars, anarchy battes, and salmon runs. Here are my thoughts on aspects of the game overall:

Gameplay: Splatoon 3’s gameplay on the surface seems just like 2’s but slightly better, which is a fair judgement to make if you’re a more casual player. But to me, the amount of smaller changes 3 makes ends up feeling drastically different and better than 2. For me, nearly the best addition is the Squid Roll. I use it like crazy in both combat and when I’m just messing around. It’s so fun to use and I think it’s a great addition to your moveset. The squid surge is also useful in certain situations, but I haven’t used it nearly as much. But HOLY COW, being able to throw eggs in Salmon Run is a godsend. I don’t know how I lived in 2 not being able to throw them. It is a remarkable addition. Some of the anarchy battles have been improved as well, especially rainmaker and clam blitz with the addition of checkpoints and lower clam requirements, respectively. Oh yeah, also Tableturf! It’s a ton of fun but I’m waiting for the online mode to really get into it.

Story: Splatoon 3 definitely has the best campaign of the three games thus far. It takes a lot of notes from Octo Expansion, which is still my favorite singleplayer mode overall. But I really like the new overworld, it feels a lot more connected and cohesive than even Octo’s was. It was a blast to find all of the hidden stuff as well. The level designs weren’t quite as imaginative or original as I would have hoped for, though. The levels were all fun, especially the speedrunning or special platforming challenges. But levels still lack a sense of cohesion that’s present in the overworld. You’re still going from abstract floating island to abstract floating island. It fits the weird world of Splatoon well, but I definitely would have welcomed a shake-up. Boss fights were also alright, nothing too crazy though. The Sunshine reference was awesome but that was about it. Also, the lore is absolutely WILD. It is super interesting and I think it’s worth it to 100% the game just to unlock all of the lore.

Graphics: Splatoon has never looked this inky and goopy and glossy and splatoon-y. The visual upgrade here from 2 is really noticeable in both the graphics and UI. Everything looks cleaner and yet still follows the “Chaos” rules of the game. Things like lighting and water are improved greatly as well.

Music: Ding ding ding ding ding diing ding dingding dididiiing. Yeah, the music is awesome as always. The story mode contains nothing but absolute bangers, and the battle music is as adrenaline pumping as always. I feel like they took the weirdness to a new level, which I am all for.

So overall, Splatoon 3 is absolutely the best entry in the series yet. It does lack that new Salmon Run-level big feature, which would have been nice. However, the amount of smaller changes adding up to a much better game overall practically makes up for that loss. So many of the rough - and even slightly bumpy - edges from both 1 and 2 are gone. Everything feels more connected, more polished, more flashy, and more balanced. It’s the most fun I have had with Splatoon yet, and I am super excited what’s coming next for this game, and the series as a whole in the future. 10/10

@MarioLover92 Congrats on finishing Wario Land II! It's quite a charming title IMO. It isn't a perfect game, but I always liked that there are no lives - you lose coins instead - and the different forms are fun to deal with. It's essentially one big puzzle game where you can beat up the enemies along the way! Also, there's more than one ending.

I've always preferred the platformers over the WarioWare titles, though I like both series.

@Tyranexx Thanks! I did notice that WL2 has more to do after finishing the last level. I did like the many different forms, and how you can use them to your advantage. I played a fair amount of WL3, though I think I got stuck in it. I'll try to see what I can do, and if I still can't get anywhere, I'll probably head back to WL2 so I can check out more of that game. I do like both series as well, though similarly to you, I have a bit of a platformer bias. lol

@StarPoint It's perhaps the most iterative Nintendo sequel we've ever gotten. Not necessarily reinventing the wheel, but rather taking what had been innovated in 2 and improving/expanding upon it in more ways than I could've ever hoped.

If there's another thing I'd like to mention in regards to 3 especially, it'd be the character designs. The new customisation options for Inklings and Octolings (including getting with the times and removing gender locking thank GOD) are great don't get me wrong, but I don't think I've ever loved the supporting cast of a general Splatoon hub this much in my time with the series. The shopkeepers are all incredibly unique (giving us creatures like a nautilus and coconut crab for the very first time), bringing in an in-universe band member as an actual character in the games (Harmony is so goddamn precious), the fish manning the recon being both very nice and cute while also being a f****** SPY, Murch going from annoying to incredibly cool, Agent 3-sorry, Captain 3 being one of my absolute favourite Nintendo characters for telling a story in clothing of all things and of course: Deep Cut all being incredibly endearing, amazing musicians and Team Rocket-esque villains in Story Mode.

This is the greatest new roster ever in a Splatoon game and you will never change my mind on that fact.

@Fizza Oh yeah I forgot about the characters as well! I agree, they are all awesome and are super unique. And like you said, lots of characters have really interesting backstories which leads to a good amount of world building as well.

Just completed luigis mansion 1 on 3ds. It was a decent game that I'd say is probably the weakest out of the 3 installments. Still an overall good game, I just like the other 2 more, with 3 being the best.

I finally reached the end credits of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 yesterday evening. Wow....What a ride. What an adventure. What an incredible 130+ hours where I never became bored, where I wanted to see what was around the next bend, what character development I could unearth next through the main plot, Hero quests, or regular side quests, great music (though not quite to the scale of previous Xenoblade titles overall), classes, unique monsters, characters....There's very little for me to criticize about this game. The plot is full of twists and turns, with an amazing (if bittersweet) ending. The freaky thing? It could apply to the real world easily in some aspects. The combat is the best it's ever been in the series and has certainly evolved from previous titles.

There's really very little for me to criticize. Money admittedly doesn't have much use after some time, but that's very minor. Too, being too overleveled can make classes a pain to grind outside of certain areas.

Quite frankly, this is the best ARPG I've played since XC:DE back in 2020. This game easily stands toe to toe with XC1 in my book; I can't easily rank one above the other. Considering I've put in ~130 hours, I've decided to hold off on most of the post-game content for now until most of the DLC is available.

@MarioLover92 The forms can be to your advantage...or to your disadvantage in some cases lol. That's why I view some of the Wario Land titles as a sort of puzzle game. Wario Land 3 is more nonlinear and wasn't as fun as II IMO, though there's still plenty to like about it...unless you're a completionist. XD Tip: Try to take advantage of the day/night system due to how it can change some levels.

I 100% agree, though to be fair my only experience with LM1 is the 3DS port. I can safely say the series has improved with each iteration.

@Tyranexx agree with your thoughts on XC3. More and more I'd say it might be the best and perhaps a top 10 game of all time for me. Initially I wasn't crazy about the combat but eventually fell in love with it. The only gripe was not have some sort of QTE in chain attacks.

As for LM series, agreed. Each game built upon the previous. They're all great, but 3 is just perfect.

@NintendoByNature I may be biased since I just came off of playing the game, but I think XC3 is currently my favorite in many aspects. Though XC1 takes the cake in the music department. Before this game, XCX probably had my favorite quests and world building, but I can safely say XC3 edges that title out too. I originally wasn't crazy about combat until it opened up more with chain attacks and other mechanics.

Luigi's Mansion 3 is indeed nearly perfect...until the next title vacuums along.

I finally beat Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve. I had heard the hype for this game and for the most part it delivered. The interesting thing is that even the first half was better, and there's not a lot new in there. I was honestly disappointed they kept so much of the music the same, I think that's a first for the series. It really presents the game as less "GAA2" and more "GAA Season 2". But it just had slightly better writing I guess (definitely funnier) and more importantly, way better pacing. One of the big problems the last few AA games I've played have had is that they've been two slow at points. ESPECIALLY GAA1, it feels like half that game is just slowly getting to a status quo, and the decision to break the formula of how the cases are paced I don't think worked out. This game goes back to what works in that regard.

But, to some extent like Spirit of Justice, the more you go through the 2nd half the more it started to really reveal why it was worth getting hyped about. And a lot of it is just doing the first game but better (the Sherlock section in case 3 is like the coolest visual treat of the series). And then the game really starts to lean into the plot twists and it just doesn't stop. I'm actually amazed at how long it kept pulling effective plot twists (that mattered to the whole story), like it should've really burned me out, even for an AA game. I've jokingly wondered if AA5 and 6 were made partially to apologize for issues people had with the previous game (those issues being tone, and a lack of Apollo, respectively). This feels like a way better version of certain bigger story elements of AA6 that I was kinda mixed on.

I would say I had more fun with AA5, but GAA2 is probably the best of the 3DS era of games.
