  1. I'm also looking forward to Paper Mario: The Origami King. I liked Paper Mario: Color Splash on Wii U (the only Paper Mario game I've played). It had incredibly amusing writing but its battle system got a bit tedious. Nintendo had come up with a really cool use of the digital game manual in Color Splash. At one point in the game there was a "hint" to open the manual and there was a sort of a development diary explaining how they had come up with the idea presented in that particular scene and what kind of work it had involved. I hope they will continue making similar things with the manuals!
  2. Not until you realize you can't get them to fit nicely in a row in alphabetical order and have to stack them on top of each other however they best fit the space and then everything looks like a huge mess... So many awesome games and too little space for them on the bookshelf. I'm still on the fence with Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition. I already have Xenoblade Chronicles 3D for 3DS (haven't started it yet). I'm somewhat interested in the collector's edition of the Switch remake but can't find any info if the EU version's artbook is hardcover or not. Not interested in any of the other bonus stuff in the package (vinyl record, steelbook) and the price is pretty high. Might go with the standard physical version this time and not sure if I'll get the game at launch. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is its own game with different characters and unrelated plot but like @Alderriz mentioned, there are some reoccurring elements in the series. You don't have to play the games in the correct order to understand the events. XC2 is a really good game and I recommend it. And if you have a Wii U, I recommend picking up Xenoblade Chronicles X.
  3. I love listening to videogame music and I've bought multiple original soundtracks and also some fan made albums. My top favorite game soundtracks are probably Megaman 2 (NES) - The melodies still hold up to this day and go head to head with music produced for modern consoles / PC Chrono Cross (PlayStation) - I've never even played the game, yet I think it's easily among the best game soundtracks I've listened to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Switch) - Masterful composing, enhances the game to new heights, Gormott theme is especially amazing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) - Legendary pieces, these are again songs that stand on their own and you don't have to play the game to enjoy them The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, Switch) - The mellow sounds fit the environments and feel of the game nicely, beautiful Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS) - I really enjoyed this one, nice combination of lighter and more serious pieces, though I love the game very much as well Ragnarok Online (PC) - Very refreshing non-traditional videogame music of varying genres Persona 4 Golden (Vita) - This falls under the non-traditional category as well, the soundtrack works really well both in the game and alone Persona 5 (PS3, PS4) - Again some more unique compositions with distinct style and skillful creation of mood, the quality is high and even throughout the whole soundtrack (except the Mementos music is terrible!) So many great soundtracks it's hard to pick. There are of course legendary melodies in games like Super Mario and Pokémon that everyone seems to recognize but very often soundtracks have only one or two exceptional pieces. I played Cadence of Hyrule to 100% completion and really enjoyed my time with it. It's the perfect length IMO, looks really polished, the rhythm-based gameplay is fun and the soundtrack is of course the main draw of the game. Skillful remixes of epic Zelda tunes. P.S. If you enjoy Zelda music, I recommend violin cover albums by Taylor Davis. She does other videogame music as well and they are quite incredible. Such skill!
  4. OMG bushes! I loved them in ACNL and was waiting when we'll get them in ACNH. Very nice looking new features! I'm almost done with Stella Glow on 3DS (great game!) and after that I'm planning to dive into Octopath Traveler on Switch. Had the collector's edition of the game for a long time but didn't have time to start it yet. I wanted to support my favorite local game store and picked up Astral Chain today. Got it for 8 euros (gave a couple of old games - like an extra copy of Bravely Default we had on our shelf - and an unused PS4 controller in exchange). One of my favorite local small game stores went bankrupt in February so I wouldn't want that to happen to any more companies..
  5. Got Nathan Drake Collection. Props to Sony for actually giving something for free for once! Might try some of the games in the collection sometime. Enjoyed Uncharted Golden Abyss on Vita so maybe I'll like these ones too. Already had Journey which is a fantastic experience, I highly recommend it.
  6. It has now been confirmed by the IP holder that it was legal issues causing Cooking Mama: Cookstar's disappearance. The developer has published the game without the IP holder's approval and apparently even attempts to make an unauthorized/unlicensed PS4 version. Wow. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2020/04/cooking_mamas_ip_holder_evaluating_legal_options_after_unauthorized_release_of_cookstar On another note, I downloaded the Disaster Report 4 demo on Switch the other day and found it pretty appealing. Considering getting the game on Switch / PC / PS4 once the price drops a bit.
  7. Yes, it's my first priority to stay away from games with online trophies locked behind a paywall.
  8. I'm on vacation and I booted up Animal Crossing: New Horizons at 12:30 to "check the turnip prices". Next thing I know it's 17:30 and I realized it would be a great moment to go out for a walk, so I saved and quit the game. Almost got my shoes on and noticed it's raining. It was a fine sunny day earlier. Oh, the curse of Animal Crossing...
  9. Possibly a game-breaking bug the developer needs to fix before it's allowed to be sold on eShop again? I've heard Nintendo has pulled some other games in the past because of bugs or exploits. Another thing could be some kind of legal issues relating to the game's contents, such as someone claiming rights to music or graphical assets. I'm curious to know the reason as well. Played a demo to one Cooking Mama game on 3DS some years ago and the controls didn't function very well, so I'll have to see reviews and play a demo to see if the game is even playable. Seems like a nice idea for a game because I'm a sucker for food and cooking in games.
  10. I started with Yakuza 0 myself. It's a story prequel for all the other games in the series so it should be a very good starting point. Stay safe and have fun!
  11. My suggestions for positive and humorous games: Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Switch Animal Crossing: New Leaf on 3DS Everybody's Golf on PS4 Everybody's Golf (Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational) on Vita/PS3 West of Loathing on PC/Switch Trying to think of good games that have heavier emphasis on story, I can't think of many that don't have a somewhat gloomy setting. Yakuza 0 (PS4, PC, Xbox One) has a great story and lots of humor. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Switch) has a great story too, fun battle system and it's easy to forget outside world exists when you arrive in Alrest and start exploring.
  12. Everybody's Golf (PS4) Push it to the Limit! Obtain all trophies Got the platinum to Everybody's Golf a couple of weeks ago. I really liked the game despite my initial worries having heard some negative reviews from people who had played the prior Everybody's Golf (Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational). The prior game on Vita is still my favorite Vita game. Everybody's Golf has a pretty robust character creation where you can customize your character at any time. More items, body types, hair styles, etc. unlock as you play. I've seen quite wild creations in the online course areas (the online is still very active btw if you're interested in socializing). Music is somewhat forgettable but nice and relaxing. Sound effects and visual feedback are excellent. The courses are beautiful and the gameplay is very relaxing and enjoyable - easy to learn but also challenges you. The game radiates positivity. Even when I messed up my game on the country clubs, I never felt upset because the game encourages you to do better. The game has you taking part in tournaments and pits you against special challengers in golf duels. Doing well will increase your rank and let you advance to more difficult opponents. The pacing in the start almost feels like they're trying to push you into buying DLC courses - you're locked to playing just one course for a good while before a second one unlocks. For some reason they have added fishing to the activities. Totally unnecessary addition but it was somewhat fun. There's monthly(?) international online tournaments you can take part in. I commend the developer for making them truly for everybody - no PS Plus subscription is required to participate in the tournaments and in case the course in qualifiers/finals is a DLC course, you can play the course even if you haven't purchased it! Everyone walks away with a prize too, just for taking part. You can also enter daily online courses without a subscription so everything needed for the platinum trophy can be done without paying anything extra. Everything was smooth sailing until it was time to start upgrading my own custom clubs. I dreaded the thought of the RNG system, possibly having to grind gems for eternity or having to pay real money to upgrade clubs that fulfill the requirements to hit condors (4 under par, 3 of them needed for platinum). So I put it off for a long time until I finally decided I need to get cracking before the servers close down. Luckily I got clubs with 24 power quite easily, I needed under 300 gems. I got my 3 condors, beat the final mystery challengers and bagged the platinum. This game was a lot easier than the Vita version even though the requirements (5 albatrosses and 3 condors) sounded insane. I recommend teeing off in Everybody's Golf if you want a relaxing, lighthearted game to wind down with. Stay safe and stay out of hazards!
  13. Animal Crossing: New Horizons broke all Switch launch records in Japan, selling 1.88 million copies at retail in 3 days. https://www.gematsu.com/2020/03/animal-crossing-new-horizons-sold-1-88-million-retail-copies-in-first-three-days-in-japan Not terribly surprised by the sales really. It's a fantastic game. Eager to see how the game has performed in other regions. The museum opened on my island (and husbando's island) yesterday and we were amazed by its design. Especially the fossil rooms were impressive and I didn't even have many things on display yet.
  14. Sunnydale is a very cute name! Lyman has a nice color scheme and as for Diva, I personally like uchi villagers a lot. I was very happy when I got Hazel to my town as squirrels are maybe my favorite AC animals, Hazel is also uchi and her colors are pleasing to the eye. My desert island life is off to a good start. Today I'm getting my own house and Blathers will set up his museum tent. My 2nd day ended to this funny screencap (peach is my island's native fruit): By the way, if you have Animal Crossing Pocket Scam (the mobile game) and have linked it to your Nintendo Account, you can get some extra DLC content to New Horizons. Here's instructions on how to redeem the DLC: https://ac-pocketcamp.com/en-US/site/horizons
  15. Yaay! I got the console without issues! It's quite pretty. The package included a download code for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I also got a matching carrying case. Now in case I die due to a COVID-19 infection, at least I had the chance to play ACNH. What did you people name your island and which starting villagers did you get? I named my island Sapienza (after my favorite Hitman level) and my first animals were Hazel and Tank. Tank has lived in my New Leaf town too at some point. I'm prepared with some amiibo cards so I can get my favorite villager Poppy to move to Sapienza.
