It only took me 4 months and *checks Switch profile* 70(!) hours, but Great Ace Attorney Chronicles main story done. The second game will likely be my GOTY. A weaker first case, but marvelous from then on out. Thank you, Capcom.

 
 
 

Been a while since I'd beaten a video game and had the evening to myself, so sat down to play/beat the original Mega Man for the first time. Thoughts in comments (spoiler... I don't think I have anything new to say... and fuck the Yellow Devil)

 
 
 

Nothing makes me feel more like an old man (though only in my mid-20s) than looking at the Netflix top10. Yesterday it was a variety of Netflix originals Id never heard of or new spooky movies, MyLittlePony... and the 2017 King Arthur movie at #3. NO. 3!

 
 
 

As much as people may rag on Dread for it's difficulty, I wish more was at stake during the EMMI sections, like a Hollow Knight type thing where you lose a bunch of shit you collected if you get caught. As it is now, there's nothing to lose by being caugh

 
 
 

I think Smash is the only game I've played fairly consistently for nigh on 22 years... and would be considered by all fairly mediocre

 
 
 

Dread took a page out of the Mario playbook, if nothing else make movement fun. Traversing this world is a god damn blast

 
 
 

The internet: Metroid Dread!!!! My wife: Eagerly counting down the seconds to when Tetris Effect downloads to our switch.

 
 
 

Went to a new dentist today for a routine cleaning and check-up... but after the cleaning was done the hygienist told me I could leave, though I hadn't seen a dentist. When I asked about it, I was told there was no dentist there today. Is this normal?

 
 
 

Winner of the direct? Charlie Day as Luigi

 
 
 

After my first clear of Hades, I thought "it's addicting, sure. Fun, yeah. But Game of the Year good?" But after four clears, it just keeps getting better!

 
 
 

Capcom, my proposal: just make another 2D Zelda. Ask for forgiveness, not permission.

 
 
 

I know you've all been saying this for over a year... but holy fuck! I can't think of the last time a game has had its claws in me quite like Hades. So tantalizingly close to my first escape (saw and died to Hades on run 17) Want to miss work to just play

 
 
 

Had 10 hours of train/bus riding this weekend which meant nearly 10 hours straight of gaming. Here's the haul: beat Kid Icarus: Of Myth & Monsters, got hopelessly lost in Norfair in Metroid NES, and as series noob tried FE: Awakening on hard and failed

 
 
 

Didn't see too many people talk about it, but I tried the WarioWare switch demo and liked it a lot. Don't know if I liked it $50 a lot, but especially if you have a partner to play with, seems like it would be a sweet time.

 
 
 

Quick spoiler-ific Great Ace Attorney thoughts in the comments (finished only through game 1, case 4)

 
 
 

I appreciate that the Great Ace Attorney seems to embrace a level of lack of resolution that makes them more realistic and less simplistic and "gamey" than games past. Cf PW:AA which before anything sees Frank Sahwit saying "I need to pin this on someone"

 
 
 

Does any one know how many worlds are in Ring Fit? Is there anyone out there who even knows what the end looks like... if it exists?

 
 
 

And with that, I'm finally bidding farewell to Celeste. Might pop in here and there to play a few levels, but I think I've died enough


 
 
 

I love watching clips of Celeste of things I've already beaten just to go, "Holy Shit... how did I do that?!" Any other games that people do this for?

 
 
 

And that's Sonic '91 in the books for me for the first time. Somehow, for having never playing this game til today, I got nostalgic playing Green Hill Zone. Truly a magical level... but my interest slowly petered out from there. Thoughts in comments

 
 
 

I know for the more tech literate, this isn't a big deal, but damn, playing (albeit streaming via the GamePass Cloud) Banjo Kazooie on my laptop with my Joy Cons is the great reward for far too much effort!... and it plays kinda just ok :/


 
 
 

Something I noticed during the Nintendo E3 direct and the FP article on Skyward Sword: it seems like button only controls will only be for handheld mode?! I can't procontroller on the TV?

 
 
 

Never have I been more ok to have a delay in MP4

 
 
 

My worst fear: "Hello. It's me, Eiji Aonuma. You probably want me to talk about the sequel to Breath of the Wild... you probably also want to hear about some other games like Metroid Prime 4, the Pikmin franchise, and anything not Splatoon 3 related..."


 
 
 

Control is free on EGS! I shall now promptly download it where it will rot alongside the rest of my EGS freebie collection.
