Started! It's pretty cool so far, but sprites are a bit tiny in handheld mode, and my gun feels weak | 712 coins, in Owl Temple

I already feel bad for the main character, not going to lie. It must be horrible to have anxiety and such a low self-esteem to the point of having nightmares about it, but be unable to share these thoughts because of mutism. That aside, I'm apparently terrible at games that have 3 different actions mapped to 3 different face buttons; I keep mixing up the three, and do stuff like dash into the enemies when I mean to spin into them. I like the Prinny lookalike, he's cute!

This game seems to be easier than the Wii U one overall, although it's possible I just learned how to easily solve these puzzles.

Yep, that makes sense. Would you do the same for the Metroid Prime Trilogy? Just curious - it seems like the same situation, though I'll admit I don't have the Trilogy so I don't know for sure (I didn't like MP3's control scheme, so it was never really on my radar).

That's kind of where I'm leaning towards as well, on all counts. Thanks for your input!

Would you put Twilight Princess on Wii AND Gamecube, since the controls are vastly different (and the map is flipped)? I've so far been putting it just with Gamecube, since that's the system it was actually made for (and the Wii version's controls are... not great), but my mind flips between adding the Wii version and not.

Ooh that makes sense, I didn't realize you were replaying the DS games. You're right, for Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright I think the court case sections are the focus, and the in-between exploration mixes in some of the Layton minigame style. If you want to get into Ace Attorney then the trilogy of the first games is the best place to start. For the latter games/spinoffs you don't necessarily need to have played the originals since they restart with a new cast dynamic, but you lose context for the way some characters behave/speak.

You cleared the 3DS Professor Layton entries! Do you think you'll try any of the spinoff games?

Yeah, the movie explains some stuff. It goes between Miracle Mask and Azran Legacy, I believe. I remember thinking while playing Azran that they essentially expect you to have watched the movie or else you just get elements that come out of nowhere in the story.

Exactly, there has to be a way hopefully around it but it seems highly unlikely since you have the same issues I do. Makes me wonder if it's a very common problem that people have found potential ways around it that you can still have fun with the game.

It has potential to be a great game but the one we have in the West is kind of a rough start to the franchise. Although the one on PS4 interested me because of the Final Fantasy Appeal, hopefully the balance was fixed among other things. [Link]

Fortune Street I played it with some of my family members when I initially got it in 2017. Honestly was pretty fun, although I still have yet to fully understand the game to really take advantage of the game. At times it feels the game is completely against you when you play with nothing but yourself and the CPU.

Personally, I think 4 (DS) (or mobile I guess) is a great entry point. It has a fun chapter-based system with different characters who all come together in the final chapter. 5 (DS/mobile) is one of the best of the series, especially its plot, and it has a monster-recruiting mechanic that pre-dated Pokémon (though it's not nearly as monster-driven as all that).

If you want to start with a more recent/accessible one, 8 (3DS) is probably the way to go. It's all-around a very good RPG with fun characters and mechanics. 9 (DS) is cool, but definitely lacking now that the DS WiFi capabilities are gone - unless you have friends to play with, it feels a bit empty. 11 is probably the pinnacle of the series so far; if you don't mind going backwards afterwards and feeling everything de-evolve, that's a great place to start as well.

The Dragon Quest series is very accessible and shouldn't be a problem for an RPG veteran. There's a bit of grinding involved, of course, but that's to be expected. The extra post-game stuff in most of the games will definitely provide a challenge. The endgame of II also has a pretty steep difficulty spike, but that's the only part in the main games that will provide frustration (at least for me that was the case).

Hopefully that helps!

Saw your Fortune Street status (congrats, by the way!) and thought I'd stop by to let you know that if you're looking to get into the series, I can provide some recommendations since I've 'd all of the main series so far. It's a fun, classic RPG series.

Funny enough, last weekend it finally got cold. It was -20 on Monday and felt colder with the wind. I looked at the weather and just said "nope" and worked from home. But, I spoke with a coworker who lives in the capital of Canada and it was -38 for them

I loved watching that fight because it looked so bizarre at first, then I realised it was my bf throwing beehives, and a giant Pikachu throwing beehives. Just bees for everyone!

I think we've finally gotten a proper Canadian weather finally. Today it was -11 when I walked to work so that felt pretty normal!

I've been looking at pictures of the Amalfi coast and it's just stunning. I might have to visit on my own time, so that way I can explore at my own pace.

Once I finally pick up Smash again, I might try Roy instead. So far, it's been a lot more fun for me to watch all the ridiculous WOL fights while I play Steins;Gate 0. My favourite fight so far was one with a giant Pikachu, and the spirit was a bee of some sort. Whole fight was beehives being thrown around, and watching people be damaged by bees.

Hopefully there aren't a lot of typos as a write this, it's a quiet moment at work so I'm trying this on my phone but it's really not working very well.

I mean built-in as in they already on the base version of the game on switch. The DLC is not necessarily to beat the game (I mean, if you want to get the true ending, there's a boss that was changed a decent amount from one of the DLC's. So if you want to get technical then I guess so)

BUT, there's another ending tied to doing the Pantheon of Hallownest I.e the big boss rush (there's actually 2!)

If have anymore questions about Hollow Knight then let me know. I'd be happy to answer them!

Oh yeah, probably should realised that that meant "inexperienced" as supposed to "no experience".


I wouldn't suggest avoiding the DLC out right for 3 reasons. 1: You can't, 3 of them are built in and the last one (the one with the stupid long boss rush) is a update away

2:They add a lot to the experience, There are 10 bosses, New side quests, New abblites, New lore, new areas, ect.

3: Not all the challenges they add are that bad, Member when I described the base difficulty as "fairly difficult"? Well really everything else they add is pretty fair. Hard? Yes, but fair. The only exceptions are the PoP (you'll learn what that means when you play it) and the boss rush I mentioned earlier (also about that, I forgot to mention that all the the bosses in that Do double damage, have more health and (sometimes) change there area to be more hazardous!)

But yeah I would still suggest doing most the DLC.

Funny enough I thought of you today, I was invited to a wedding on the Amalfi coast. Not sure if that's feasible, but it was a kind gesture.

We are the same in that regard, I struggle with hot and humid temperatures because it feels more difficult to cool down. When I'm cold, it feels much easier to deal with. I'm not sure if that's because I'm more used to the cold? It was -12 today when I was walking to work, so it took a little while for the feeling to get back into my legs

My other half has gone back to Smash and is working on the World of Light again, it seems to be going much better when I pay attention lol I do like playing as Lucina, but I am just not really good at the game. He's gotten a lot more into fighters, and likes Dragonball Z Fighters a lot as well. And I'm even worse at that one!

Just from watching the game, Duck Hunt, and Mr. Game & Watch are some of the worst to play.
