Backlog Beaten: Sept 5, 2017
Master of Unlocking: Majority of games are completed
I would agree with that. Thanks for the input!

The thing I'm trying to determine is what makes a remake a remake. Final Fantasy IV is a great example. The SNES version is the original, of course. It was also ported to PS1 in Final Fantasy Chronicles and fixed some bugs, which is the first version that I played (I never played the SNES version). They ported it to GBA next and added some extra Eidolons and dungeons. That version was included in the Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection on PSP, but with updated graphics and even more extras (plus the sequel). And finally there's the DS version, with the Augments, polygonal graphics, and voice-acting, plus a higher difficulty. If I liked each version enough to include them in the Top 10 for their respective systems, it feels like I'm pushing down other deserving games in order to put the same game in 5 different lists. At the same time, the PSP and DS version feel different enough that I'd include them as separate games, and the GBA version adds some stuff but feels and looks the same, so I could also see adding that one. That leads me to deciding whether or not to include it as a PS1 game, since that's the version I played, or as a SNES game, since they're basically the same, or as both, since there are some differences between the two. That's kind of where I'm stuck.

Io sono SICURO che non finirò mai tutti i giochi della mia collezione durante la terrena esistenza, ormai mi sembra una cosa ineluttabile per chiunque ha collezione come la mia (o più grandi). Nel caso il Tristo Mietitore volesse far passo con me, immagino farò come Smaug o Zio Paperone, ma vediamo.

Io scrivo ogni giorno, una delle poche cose che non posso evitare (o voglio evitare) di fare, nonostante il lavoro ed ora lo studio (da qualche mese sto studiando giapponese via un corso a Firenze), e quel pò di vita sociale che riesco ad avere con gli orari e turni che ci sono nel settore ristorazione. Per ora tengo duro con il lavoro del cazzo che ho, e mi sto mettendo da parte un pò di soldi (e la paga potrebbe essere peggio, diciamo così, perchè è vero), forse per andare in UK e cercare il lavoro che voglio lì. Qui non ho il tempo nè la voglia di inseguire e leccare le palle per 10 anni a persone del settore giornalistico/critico per avere una qualsiasi chance, altro che gavetta, dovrei non aver altro da fare (e potermi permettere ciò in primo luogo), oltre a conoscere qualcuno.

Le cose potrebbero essere meglio (vorrei avere un altro lavoro che mi dia più tempo per progetti più impegnativi, come fare un libro su cinema di genere), ma mi sto riprendendo piano piano, sto affinando e migliorando le mie abilità di scrittore, e sto cercando di dare una frenata agli acquisti compulsivi ( ), e dopo una settimana di riposo (non ho vacanze o riposi veri e propri da giugno, vedi te) sono pronto ad affrontare l'orrido periodo pre-, post e durante Natalizio al lavoro.

In chiusura, goditi i God Of War. Anche Ascension, di cui paradossalmente ho quasi amato più i puzzle con cadaveri e portali che i combattimenti.

anche la mia testa sta lì lì per fare "boom boom", ma mi vorrei fermare con questo accumulo (pur fatto in grande economia, non importa), pian piano ce la farò perchè chi ha il tempo per tutti questi giochi, con lavoro, recensioni, et vita? In ogni caso credo punterò ai 2000 titoli/giochi, a questo punto, mi sa. Oltre dubito, assai, anche perchè avrei altre priorità.

Something similar happened to me when I played both Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask for the first time ever (a few years ago), since I didn't get to play them when they were new games I wasn't as hyped as most people but I still enjoyed them nonetheless, although I felt Wind Waker and Twilight Princess were better.

I think one of the reasons I liked A Link to The Past a lot (besides being the first Zelda game I played properly) is the whole Light/Dark world mechanic, I always have a soft spot for games like that (which is why I liked Metroid Prime 2 a bit more even if the first one is technically a better game).

Hey there! Oh it was absolutely because of the name, and maybe also a sense of a fresh start since I lost a lot of motivation to game. And no I won't be using the other account anymore; I want to remove as much of the cringe of my adolescence from my life

I'm really enjoying it, it reminds me a lot of a Link to The Past (which is my favorite 2D Zelda game) so that helped with it. I've been trying to do as much as I can on my own, which is why it takes me longer to make progress since I explore places each time I get a new item in case I forgot I couldn't fully explore it before.

Sorry for the delay, I was preparing for a local Pokémon tournament.

As far as I recall, that comment is made by one of the skeleton heaps in the main dungeon.

I absolutely love Link's Awakening. It and the Oracle games are my favourite handheld Zelda games, and since I favour handheld consoles, that's high praise. In contrast to you, I much prefer 2D Zelda games, and was very pleased by A Link Between Worlds. That's technically not 2D, but it's a lovechild of A Link to the Past and handheld Zeldas.

Things in Scotland have only gotten worse with the Brexit vote. Scotland's partial autonomy shields it to a degree from what's happening to the rest of the UK, but restricting immigration will really harm Scotland. Due to brain drain from the UK's overcentralisation in London and decades of lack of investment, Scotland has a very aged population. We rely on immigration to bring in young people for our workforce. Scotland’s world-class universities and free university tuition did a great job of attracting talented European young people, but now that's going to dry up.

>removes the ability to move with the D-pad
>mocks players complaining about it in a dialogue in the central dungeon

THANKS NINTENDO

Honestly, I don't know why Nintendo ended their partnership with Capcom. The Capcom-era handheld Zeldas were amazing.

Also, like Zelda II I 'd it so I'd never have any reason to ever play it again. Actually, I felt similar by the end of Link to the Past, but it doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as those two. (I did a Zelda year a few years back, where I was getting Zelda games as high up the progress bar as possible, so I had that as motivation.)

Yes, I completed it. I think I doubled my playtime trying to finish the ship sets because the pieces are random.

I still haven't played Spirit Tracks because I hated Phantom Hourglass so much.
