VASARA Collection
Resistance is Feudal

Updated about 4 days ago

☆★★★★ And so it is with "Vasara Collection," a compilation of two arcade games from the early aughties that were a kind of proto-bullet hell shmup set in a steampunk version of feudal Japan, that I discover one of the joys of the Nintendo Switch: its ability to be played in vertical mode while undocked, thus recreating a handheld approximation of the cabinet experience. The "Vasara" games themselves are letdown only by their weak audio presentation and the punishing difficulty of their final stages.

You're currently playing literally three of my favorite games of all time.

You have excellent taste.

It's basically Symphony of the Night 2 featuring Aria of Sorrow and Order of Ecclesia.

In other words I'm in love with it. Highly highly highly recommended.

A lot of games have me experiencing the "I'm ready for it to be over" bit before the actual ending is reached, nowadays. But playing the same kind of game several times in a row can't help. This is your third Assassin's Creed back to back? It may be good to go for something completely different next, recharge your battery for this style of game. For my part, I just went through Danganronpa, added Danganronpa 2 to my Steam wishlist, boom, 60% off right now. I still won't do it, I need to play something different now, and this won't be the last time it goes on sale.

I appreciate that take! I think that's pretty much what I'd expect and since I am interested in the historical aspects of it, I think I'll still find things to enjoy. Good to hear about Black Flag too.

Would you say it was worth going back to ACIII after Odyssey or was it ultimately pretty underwhelming?

Metroid: Samus Returns did get a little harder towards the end. Probably around Area 5? The enemies got a little tougher, but I never really had any issues with the bosses surprisingly... Usually, I get stuck because I miss a breakable block and can not progress the game!

Never played Metroid Prime... There’s a new Metroid Prime coming out for the Switch, or something, isn’t there? Maybe I’ll have to try it out. I have really only played and finished the hand held titles when it comes to the series and then the first two back on NES/SNES.

Thanks. Your empathy is appreciated. Everything up until now has been tough but fair, but I guess they decided it was about time for the player to traverse an area that was as cheap and annoying as possible.

I decided to go back and finish exploring the Forbidden Woods first, and I found the rune that greatly increases Frenzy resistance. That helped immensely. I was finally able to activate the shortcut that leads straight to a boss that consistently wipes the floor with me.

Oh well. We'll get there eventually, little by little.

I liked the general plot as muddled and obtuse as it was of the first game better, to be honest, but this one is just much more fun to play. I really enjoyed it.

Hmm... I don't think any particular area of Dark Souls III has given me more trouble than any of the others. I found Lothric Castle difficult, but I think that's because I went there a bit too early. Apart from that, it's hard to say. Dragon Slayer Armor has been the toughest boss for me so far.

I have a New3DS and while that helped with MonHun4U's camera controls compared to the original 3DS, I still found it super clunky. I mean, clearly it's not unplayable because tons of people hunted plenty of monsters in the 3DS games but it was still the #1 thing keeping me from enjoying them. (And then World came along, gave me a second analog stick and even made me fall in love with the weapon I found almost impossible to use with the 3DS's camera - the bow.)

It might still be worth a try to see if it's as much of an issue for you as it was for me? Some friends of me got used to it just fine after a while, but yeah, my experience with it was... not the greatest.

I'm super glad it's over. Like Demon's and Dark were tough games, but were absolutely fair in their design. Dark 2 Electric Boogaloo was nothing short of frustrating from beginning to end.

I would love it if after Horizon, Guerrilla Games returns to the ideas they started with Killzone Shadowfall on a brand new IP. Like how Kojima took inspiration from Metal Gear Solid for Death Stranding, I hope Guerrilla Games takes inspiration from Killzone to make a new game. I really want them to do their The Last of Us (although what I played of Horizon: Zero Dawn is pretty close to that for them). There's a niche that hasn't been filled with the absence of Half-Life 2 in shooters.

Indeed. I love that game so much (despite its flaws), and the quirky characters are a large part of why.

Your thoughts about Killzone Shadowfall sum up my thoughts perfectly. People expected it to be a COD war fare shooter -- but it wasn't that at all.

Just don't do the Platinum. LOTS of grinding for multiplayer.

I'm enjoying my PS4 a lot so far, though I haven't had a chance to play a lot of stuff on it yet. I just got started with Bloodborne recently and that seems like it'll be pretty fun (and brutal). I probably won't start up Dark Souls II until I'm done with Bloodborne, but I can let you know when I'll be getting started with that. I was planning on playing with Gendo7, so the three of us could play together like we did with Demon's Souls, which was a fun time.

How have you been liking your PS4 so far?
