Consider Yourself a Hero: Majority of games are beaten
My Life in Gaming is pretty much the only YouTube type gaming thing I watch these days, but I spend a good bit of time combing article sites like Hardcore Gaming 101 or retro forums...but I try not to do it too often. If you're like me, it'll ultimately end with a trip to eBay wanting to spend money you don't have. ^^'

Oh wow, 32 inches. I can imagine. Mine's 27" and I managed to squeeze it into a corner of my bedroom, but it's so heavy and the corner is so small (wedged between a window and closet door) that I have to keep it on the floor.

A bigger map would be great! Then they could do something like expand the picket fences surrounding the player houses and create some yard space for players to customize. Maybe certain outdoor items like a picnic blanket or campfire could even entice certain villagers to come to your place and sit and chat for a bit.

You've practically got a home theater there. I certainly don't fault you for wanting to get the best out of your image after an investment like that. On the plus side, the Scorpio and even the S both include a 4k blu-ray player, so you'll be covered for any new movies you buy too.

Awesome. Since this is the last year online multiplayer will be free, it seems like a good time to be getting the most out of Splatoon 2.

Yeah, I've heard about "the claw". With a normal 3DS like mine, you could do either a sort of inverted claw or use the touchscreen to control the camera. Both methods were very uncomfortable and I was often clumsy with my inputs. I'm like you and my hands can get crampy playing small devices for a while to boot. Even though it would require some additional money, at least with the 3DS people have the option of the circle pad pro or upgrading to a New 3DS if they don't have one already. You PSP players just had to tough it out.

Well, at the very least I could tell you what I think of it and whether it's actually that comparable to Earthbound when I play it. I wouldn't sweat it though. We're not obligated to play games if we don't want to, no matter the reason.

He got both of us!

You're not alone having felt that way about JRPGs. I actually avoided them when I was a kid because I couldn't stand grinding. I've also never enjoyed random battles, so that eliminated most JRPGs of the time. Then I played Chrono Trigger, which did away with all of the nonsense and bloat and was such a great experience I decided to give JRPGs a second try. I found a couple of other good to great games over the years, but I still have a lot of hangups with the genre. Final Fantasy can vary so wildly in mechanics and quality that you never playing one might technically be a good thing. Unless you're the type who fancies a game of Russian roulette now and then. I decided to play and have taken a few bullets over the years. :x

I'm no videophile either and love their game spotlights most of all, but I do enjoy learning about game hardware, even if I'm not currently in the market for getting the most out of my image. If my CRT ever bites the dust, it would be nice to replace it with a PVM, though!

I wasn't aware a phone game was coming out. Since there was a Pokemon and Mario game, I suppose it was inevitable. If we do get a main title on Switch, I'd like to see some new daily tasks available as well as new collectibles and expanded inventory space.

Upgrading to a Scorpio and a Pro? Now those are some goals! The first I get will most likely be a PS4, rather than the Switch, simply because I already happen to own a few PS4 games and it drives me crazy that I can't play them.

Absolutely! Even putting the controls aside, an intense action game where you fight larger than life monsters is far more enjoyable and exciting on a big screen. Playing Monster Hunter on a 3DS is like watching King Kong on your phone.

I guess I can understand a comparison to Earthbound making you wary. In my experience, games that get compared to or are inspired by the timeless classics, like Earthbound, Chrono Trigger or Super Metroid, always fall short. I don't know enough about Undertale to confirm it's similarity to Earthbound but the screen of the battle I was show did remind me of it a bit visually. But the battle itself? It was like something I couldn't even begin to describe... Not sure how regular gameplay unfolds.

Can't speak for Federation Force but Metroid certainly hit hard times. If we can sweep Other M under there too, I'd be happy.

When I clicked reply, the last thing I expected was a desk chair flying at me.

Yeah. Surviving Devil gave a glowing recommendation of the third game, so I decided to give the series a try but start from the beginning and work my way up to 3. The first game has been enjoyable so far.

Have you ever watched the My Life in Gaming videos that get posted on the front page? They have an educational RGB master class series that goes in-depth into getting the best video quality out of your games. The episode dedicated to the PS1 mentioned that, since all models of PS3 are backwards compatible with PS1 games, it's a very cost efficient and simple way of getting your PS1 games output in HDMI on your HD TV. I tested it out when I saw it and they really do look extremely crisp! There are a few downsides like possible input lag or the occasional graphical glitch in some games, but it's something to consider before before putting some money down.

Now that you mention it, I suppose we should be expecting an Animal Crossing for the Switch. Hopefully it'll be a more traditional style entry rather than another spin-off. As for E3, I didn't watch it this year, other than Nintendo's Direct, I just looked at a list of announcements and checked out the trailers for things I was interested in later. I still don't have any current gen consoles so...

I did still get really excited for some announcements, though. Monster Hunter coming back to consoles had me very happy, as I've had to skip the last few entries because I can't comfortably play them on my standard 3DS. Also happy about The Evil Within 2 and I'm sure I'll pick up the new Wolfenstein when I can. Even though it's not a new game, I was thrilled Undertale was announced physically for PS4. My brothers have rambled at me for over a year about how great it is, so I put in an order for that when it went on sale this week, even though I can't play it yet.

As for Nintendo, Mario Odyssey sold me on getting a Switch but the biggest bombshell was Metroid Prime 4. I was never expecting that.

Thanks! It actually wassnt all that bad and I had fun and adventure every step of the way.
The fact the map keeps track of all the ones you hit makes tracking them down on your own and comparing with friends (or online maps) work hand in hand. I can't deny it did take quite a bit of time though.
