Thanks for all the fish

Quindi, come promesso, eccoci, il giorno di “chiusura” del blog. Non ho molto da aggiungere rispetto a quanto già detto nell’articolo precedente, quindi dirò solo: grazie di tutto. Ma almeno per questo blog, è il momento di lasciarlo andare....

Yeah, I like it too! It looks a little dated by now but the game as a whole still holds up well, and if I leave enough time pass between playthroughs it feels a little newer, since I pick a different Ancient each time

Ah, I've never played the DLC. Is it good? I might buy it before I'm getting Miles Morales, though. Thanks, Horizon is incredible. Good to hear that your girlfriend is enjoying it as well.

Haha, thank you. It felt really good. I've been playing games one at a time at my own pace since I my backlog and I've had an amazing time with most of them. I enjoy them a lot more than back then. I guess I really regret hoarding games as a teenager, because it took me years to get through all of those games. It started to feel more like work than a hobby.

Are you aiming to your backlog as well? You Always did keep your backlog under control, if I remember correctly.

Haha yes, I guess we do! I wish this site had implemented a numerical rating system. Makes a lot more sense to me than stars. Just a minor gripe though, it's still the best site to track your video games IMO and frankly the only video game related website I visit these days. I'm glad to see that you're also still active after all these years.

Happy backloggiversary btw!

The first 2 DKC games for GBA only have minor stuff added like collectibles and minigames, but most of the game is pretty much the same; the third one is the only one with new stages added and the soundtrack changed, but some of the old tunes are more fitting than the new ones, even if I prefer a lot of the new ones

I've played the original SNES ones many times, but I came across the GBA ones so I got them too, DKC3 in particular has a different soundtrack (and I prefer several of the GBA tunes), and a new area so it was worth replaying it!

The levels were designed well. I think there should have been more of an incentive to play through the entire levels other than points. All Melon runs are kind of tedious and I feel most people will just grab random fruit and never see parts of the game. Still a fun time though. Def underrated for the N64 library. I mean it's one of the only 1st party 2D platfomers on the system so that makes it unique.

It sure is! I think I am getting a little tired of it after 3 runs, but I really adore the design of the game. Yoshi is way too adorable in this one.

Haha pretty much, was kinda focusing more on other hobbies.. but I've been gaming a lot more recently! And we've hit our slow season at work so this is the perfect time to finally finish a lot of games I've been meaning to for like the last decade.. lol.

And yea I sold a bunch when I was trying to be realistic about what I can actually accomplish during this lifetime XD Mainly RPGs I decided I'd never get to, PSP games (the PSP screen is way too tiny for me to ever want to play anything on it.. I've gotten spoiled), and games I plan to rebuy for the Switch!

Ciao, rispondo dopo molto. No, effettivamente non sono ancora vivo qui. Non ricordo neanche come e quando smisi di usare questo bel sito. Nel frattempo ho studiato informatica e sono entrato qua dentro per vedere se c'erano opzioni per esportare la mia lista e curarmela in proprio, offline. Ci sarebbe un bel po' di giochi da aggiungere e non ho voglia di farlo con questa interfaccia e i vari caricamenti di pagina. Paradossalmente mi piacerebbe poter caricare giochi mettendoli semplicemente in un file di testo.

A parte il mio rambling, negli anni recenti sono diventato grande fan di Shin Megami Tensei; il IV su 3DS è stato il mio primo ed è stata una grande esperienza. A volte è frustrante, soprattutto per via dell'inizio molto difficile, ma la storia è davvero unica e la filosofia dietro mi ha fatto molto pensare.

Attualmente ho uno switch ed ho ovviamente giocato agli obbligatori Mario e Zelda. Ottimo acquisto, una delle mie console preferite di sempre devo dire.

Te che dici? Potrebbero passare altri 7 mesi ma prima o poi la vedrò la risposta ahah.

Sehr gut! Nicht überdramatisch aber gefühlvoll an den richtigen Stellen, es macht das Thema leicht zugänglich, präsentiert aber auch historische Fakten, und die Puzzle-Einlagen sind abwechslungsreich und oft sehr spannend. Kann ich nur empfehlen!

That's precisely why I'm adjusting my lists. Something like the NES Fire Emblem games are WAY different than their remade counterparts, and since I never played the original games, it felt wrong to include them in a list of Top 10 NES games even though I did enjoy Shadow Dragon and Shadows of Valentia.

As for FFIV, I've mostly heard about the differences from reading online, so obviously it would be a bit different with the controller, but otherwise they're nearly identical, from what I understand. Regardless, I wouldn't include the SNES version since I haven't played it, but the dilemma presented itself as I was trying to figure out what to do.

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.
