The character art is stunning. I love the direction they took the combat animation in, it makes the fights feel like actual battlefield combat. I like the dungeons. I don't hate the English voice acting, though I'm not keen on Celica's. Some dialogue/prompt mismatches.

Yes, this is the content I wanted, Sonic Team. I LOVED Chemical Plant's Act 2 boss and the Hydrocity Act 1 boss was amazing. Some glitchiness and slowdown in Blue Sphere.

Surprisingly forgiving for its age. Swapping between modern and retro art styles is neat; the updated visuals are really cute, and very necessary. Collecting gold is very grindy.

★★★★★ An enormous step up from Sands of Time. I adore the combat choreography and the combat animations. Sand power usage is much more strategic, and they're properly explained in this game. Some camera issues, especially in tight spaces. Dialogue animations are a bit dodgy, perhaps they should have used pre-rendered cutscenes. There's a lot of general glitchiness, though it largely doesn't detract much from the game.

Planet number four.

Updated about 3 months ago

I love that you can play as whichever Bomberman you like - Green is adorable. Story mode is really cute. I'm not sure if the difficulty levels are well described. Boss AI seems slightly out of sync with the stage difficulty. I like the two stage boss fights, but the second stages take too long. Planets really need to be broken up into sections for session play and lives, and there are too many stages per planet. I don't like how it penalises you for continues, or that you can't restart a world

Seems to take a while to get going. I like some of the Wiimote controls like tightrope balances. Not too keen on the combat controls, they're quite unforgiving. Enemies like Staldra are frustrating due to the lack of time given.

Yes! I used the cloning glitch. I don't have too many people to trade with so it was just easier that way!

Thank you. I love Silver so I tried to find a banner to show that off!

Kirby 3D was a decent game. I was tired of Hypernova by about the halfway point, but everything else was fine - some neat new powers (Beetle was cute), 3D actually had a reason for being there (attacks getting an extra little 'pop' because of it), and the boss battles were as good as ever (Paintra was the best regular boss, final battle was fantastic as per usual). Oh, and the music! Kirby's tunes are generally better than anything else Nintendo puts out.

Definitely a solid four star title.

A challenge? Nah, it just features the IPs I love the most and/or that I'm most interested to know how they are going to evolve as a franchise. Some of them I've barely even played up to this point, but I plan on changing that soon.

I'm pretty sure everyone is bad with the Special Stages at first. I finished my first run without all the Emeralds myself. You'll get better as you memorize the courses but the only general tips I can provide are remember to keep your ring count up and when you get to higher speeds, start jumping around (or even over some) corners.

Also interesting tip for Sonic & Tails I only just discovered last night: Did you know you can activate Buddy Flight solo by holding up while you jump? It's the smallest change and yet also the best thing ever. Might have picked Sonic & Tails first if I knew this, hah.

Gotta clear fast!

But yeah. Sonic games never take me long to clear, though this one was a bit longer than the average thanks to there being so many Blue Sphere stages to get through. I think my Sonic playthrough must've been about 9 hours long beause of them + many special stage reattempts while I was learning them. Tails also took a while thanks to Blue Sphere, while Knuckles was a fraction of those just because I'd gotten them all done by that point. And yet there's still plenty to mess about with in terms of finding hidden paths and getting good Time Trail times and aaaa. Amazing package all in all!

I'm right there with you on the CPZ boss, by the way. I had the dumbest grin on my face when that showed up. I'd be curious to see what you think of some of the later bosses as well.

That makes a lot of sense! It's kind of getting like that for me recently since I've had the Backloggery. Before I joined this site I never really made an active attempt to really 100% anything, or thought of it at all as a type of playthrough. I am currently playing Mario and Luigi Partners in Time and I have segments (I'm doing progress entries on my blog inspired by this site since it helps me stay on track and if I don't play for a while I'll remember what I did last, or things that I still have to get back to) where I do a lot of backtracking just to get all the items on the areas that a previously missed or hadn't completely explored without a certain ability, etc.

I agree! The 3DS is a fantastic system. The games that I've played on there I've had an absolute blast with, and my wishlist for that system continues to increase and increase, haha. I'm picking up my 2DS XL tomorrow which I'm really excited for, since I still have the one with the smaller screen and my eyes are poor so all those wonderful graphics packed into it I am unfortunately squinting to see.

Literally the only thing I'd want is what the PSP has, so that when you turn it off you are still exactly where you left off instead of rebooting the whole thing since I usually play during my breaks and lunch for work and it gets a little obnoxious to do that sometimes. I could just put it on sleep mode, so it does technically have this, but for some reason I am hesitant to do this since I feel like I'm just keeping it on while I'm working. xDD

No worry about delays, I'm the king of delays!

Really? I have to check the Temple of the Ocean King again

I think Link's Awakening is a step above the two Oracle games, even though they are technically more advanced. I somehow liked the atmosphere in it a lot, it was very dreamy, a child's game but at the same time deep enough that also an adult can appreciate it. It was just lovely!

A Link to the Past, on the other side, was... technically exceptional. But... somehow it didn't resonate with me. I didn't like the dungeon design, I didn't like the story all that much, I basically remember just the main characters of that game and everyone else is like a blur..
I am a bit scared of when I will play A Link between Worlds.

Damn, that's sad to hear.
I was very saddened by the results of the Brexit vote and thought it would be the worst news of 2016 (but then the Americans topped that, as they always do, they have to top everything). I have a cousin and two friends that live in London and I'm curious to see what they will do. Scotlands Universities are free of tuition? I've seen some and the prices are high, but maybe I concentrated only on those in England... Tuition is free in all of Germany, except for private Universities, and that was one of the main reasons I moved to here. I plan to visit Scotland sometime in the future, though, I hope you don't mind me asking you for advice for when I do!

It's the main character from the GBA JRPG Golden Sun. If you haven't played it before, it's definitely worth looking into; it's one of the best games on the platform and its sequel is no slouch, either.

The current round of games you're working on contains at least ten games that I've tried and failed to complete over the years, usually because I got distracted by something newer and shinier. I hope you can do better than I have!

Hahaha, true that! It also helps since the backlog that I have are games I've had since my childhood, but never seen the ending of so it's very satisfying just to beat it and worry about finding all those little collectibles later.

I might be thinking of doing more 100% runs after I get down to at least 30% (a goal for me this year).

Nice banner, reminds me a bit of my own...

Well, I think the stylus controls are quite bad for Zelda too, so you are charging at an open door here. I loved the GameBoy Color games, didn't mind Minish Cap too much (although I am not its biggest fan), so this new direction left me... doubtful.
Unfortunately, I was right. =(

But where do they mock players? Did I skip something? O_o

I liked the CapCom Zelda games, but my favourite handheld is still Link's Awakening. Its main story is epic and the many subquests and diverse cast of characters is just amazing.

Well, trust me, even if I don't Phantom Hourglass, I already know I won't ever play it again. I am not a Completionist (I leave that to Jirard) and feel no need to 100% games I don't like. I seldomly do that with games I do like, so go figure...

I could do the same as you with the Progress bar to motivate me... but right now, I'm too busy with other stuff in my life to care.
Still, I am basically playing through all the Zeldas chronologically since 2011... yes, it's taking some time, but that's my pace these days. I did A Link to the Past too, some years ago, and... yeah, I'm not that big of a fan, honestly. I think in general I prefer 3D Zeldas to the bidimensional ones. I rated almost all 3D ones higher as the 2D ones. =)


Oh, by the way, who is everything in Scotland? Last time we talked you were pretty depressed because of the way the voting went. How is the situation now? =)

Lately I try to keep playing everything that lands on my Now Playing list, although sometimes certain games absorb me more than others (I couldn't stop playing Mystery Case Files until I beat it)

It's good you also picked up another Zelda game and finished Majora's Mask, it had been a long time if you didn't play it since last time we talked about it

Also, nice banner! If those are games you're playing or will play then those are nice picks, especially Metroid Fusion I've only played the beginning of Ultimate Spider-Man but I liked Spider-Man 2 better, hehe.

I noticed. I still don't understand the story behind this chapter. Why should I look for Naga-related items in the middle of a war? Maybe I was supposed to play it later...
Suddenly, metroids, thousands of them.
