★★★★★ It's the sequel to the amazing Retro Game Challenge, and it's even better. Like in that one, you do challenges in pretty believeable retro-style games that were made for this title, while talking with a kid Arino and reading fake magazines for tips and whatnot. It has a maze game, a Kung Fu-like fighter, two platformers, an RPG, a 2-part detective adventure game, a shoot 'em up, and a puzzle game, plus special editions of games from the previous title, and an extra Pokémon Mini-style platromer.

Huh, that's a nice reference! I really did think that the developer made them up. But still, why did Nintendo choose those colors out of all possible combinations? Could it be to make the screen easier to see under the sunlight?

Lol part of me is hoping Genius Sonority doesn't make another F2P pokemon puzzle game on switch or mobile as a successor. I would be all over that too and it would also fill my daily schedule like it did yours.
(But another tiny part of me is hoping they do because of the memories I had with shuffle.)

That's cool! We never had anything like that; it was just Spanish, French, German, and... I think Pennsylvania History. It was some thing because they couldn't get it together well enough to have more than 3 languages. I started getting into Japanese culture my last 2 years of high school, so I probably would've loved to have something like that. I actually wanted to live there at one point in my life; I was something of a proto-weeaboo. That phone app seems like it would be pretty helpful, but unfortunately, I don't think that's an option for me; I have one of these: [Link] Thing should be in a damn museum. That said, I did find these 2 JRPGs on Steam that teach you Hiragana and Katakana that seem really neat, so I'd at least be able to read the syllables. They say that the best way to learn is to go to the country and just start speaking it, but I don't generally like to travel, so that's not something I'd do easily.

I do tend to really enjoy their stuff - I even wrote for them, once upon a time - because they point out not just that old obscure to semi-obscure game exists, but also what makes it unique and special. That said, I often take the opinions with a grain of salt, too. I do that with a lot of sources, though; what I tend to do when checking out a new game is find the lowest review I can find with the most words, and read very carefully. Torrents of fanboy gushing won't tell you much about a game - I once read a review like that that didn't even tell me what kind of game it was! - but when you're ranting about something that pissed you off, you tend to be so much more descriptive, tearing apart every little aspect of it. I read those aspects and see if they're something that would bother me, and go from there. I've gotten quite a few games I've loved, based on terrible reviews, because the gripes weren't my own.

I'm a total wiz at Romanji! Okay, not really; I know fewer than 100 words, and we're probably a little higher than 1/3 of them being able to be repeated in polite company, but I'd be totally lost playing anything much heavier than a Zelda. I learned a few things from Yakuza 0... I wanted to learn, but never had the opportunity during my academic years or the ability afterwards; I never actually learned how to study, so teaching myself would be pretty damn hard. I feel all empowered when I learn "naruhodo", and then I realize that there's a hell of a lot more to learning a language than a fistful of vocabulary words. I learned Spanish; it took me 10 years, I'm not quite fluent, and there are still entire microcosms of vocabulary I've yet to learn. Car parts, for instance, not that I really know them in English; manly stuff is my lady's department.

I read up on them at Hardcore Gaming 101, and their general opinion was that you can pass on all 4 PSX titles, but while I respect their work, I'm not always in line with their opinions. I mean, Live-A-Live is just okay, but Chrono Trigger warrants an entire Niagara Falls of fanboy vomit of an article? Yeah, I'm going to have to push back a little on that one. Of course, I have weird taste in games; I think Contra and Super C are just okay, but I really liked Contra Force. Weirdo. Anyway, I'm going to look into those 2 a bit more, and I'm glad it's those, given the language barrier. As for Gaiden 2, yeah, I jumped ship; I ask for 2 things from a Goemon game, but only really need one: wacky bullshit. Maybe it's a giant, plump robotic geisha stalking you throughout your adventure; maybe it's smashing the mirror out in a church with a giant mech only to find Satan hula-hooping in nothing but a Speedo; maybe it's ballerina Ebisumaru attacking enemies with a ribbon dancer and shooting bowling balls out of his ass. Whatever it is, that's what I ask of my Goemon, and this really just didn't deliver. It was decent, sure, and made a lot of nice concessions that most JRPGs on the NES just don't have, but I just burned out on it too quickly. For the record, the second thing is beautiful scenery, which almost every SNES game delivers IN SPADES.

That's dedication; I don't think I could ever struggle through any kind of RPG in a language I didn't know. I will say that I did really start enjoying the first Goemon RPG once I got closer to the end; there's something about the color progression in the caves as you get further and further into the game that really strikes me. I know: I'm weird. I haven't really gotten that in the second one yet, but I'm still able to hold out hope that the first one wasn't a fluke; it happened before with the Paper Marios, after all. The PS1 games? Really? I just read up on them, and they didn't seem like something I needed to pursue, but maybe I need to rethink that. Any in particular, or all 4 of them?

That's actually a damn good mix; that reminds me a little of the Turrican series, which I also enjoyed a great deal. The only thing I didn't like as much about the Gradius games is that I'm a bit of a Scrolling Shooter Princess, and I like my weapons to be extra flashy, and this seems to have that. That might be part of why I like the Parodius games more than the mainline series. That and all the flat-out lunacy, of course. Thank you; I got a Steam gift card fairly recently, so maybe that'll be something that I pick up with it!

I feel like part of it is the translation, itself; there are times where I'm pretty sure something wacky is being said in the Japanese version, but the translation is often either bland or COMPLETELY incoherent, with lines like, "Boy, there sure are a lot of ninjas in here. I haven't seen my ex-wife in years!" Nonsequitur's Club: we don't always make a lot of sense, but we sure do love pizza! At first, I'd thought that the team might've forgotten to put Goemon's usual wacky humor into the RPG, since they were a little out of their element. And then, I jumped into a plush carp doll, swam up a river, and a giant robotic Japanese woman stomped by... that sure wasn't it. They have some pretty remarkable features for a JRPG on the NES, like saving almost anywhere, 16-pixel-high character sprites, and an interface that is very quick to navigate, but yeah, some elements leave a bit to be desired. I think the mostly work for what they were: a weird experiment, taking an established series into another genre. If you ask me, the SNES titles were the best, though Mystical Ninja on the N64 was top-notch; it was basically a better Ocarina of Time that came out a year before Ocarina of Time did.

Addendum: I see that you have a Legend of Dark Witch game; how is the first one? I've been looking at it for awhile, but you're the first person I've noticed who's ever heard of them.

Oh yeah, I've seen something about candles making the Wii pick up Wiimote signals. I could use that as a last resort, but I won't have to since my Sensor Bar seemed to work just fine last time I tried it. I guess the sunlight somehow interfered with the infrared signals, according to the Nintendo troubleshooting that's a possibility. So I might only be able to play it in the evening, too bad I don't have the patience to play an RNG game that late.

I'll be honest. I dont think you have a chance to beat Kabuking with that team, the postgame is not forgiving to Yo-kai that aren't S ranks. Beating boss yo-kai like Orcanos is only possible with S ranks and legendary healers. Its tough as nails. I would recommend using Elder Bloom or Dandoodle on your team.

Do you need some help with Kabuking? I can give you some advice if you tell me your team and the levels they are. And as a note of advice i wouldn't reccomend going for 100% medallium I think its actually impossible unless you know someone with fleshy or bony.

I guess wheter you prefer the old or new system all comes down to personal preference. I can easily see where you're coming from by saying it's more exciting, but it's also much more grindy and time-consuming. The new system is more streamlined and appeals to me more because I don't have to spend as much time waiting for RNG or grinding to high levels. It really helps since there's 700+ Pokémon in PMD4, so you don't have to hope to find them all. Even though you can't get multiples of the same Pokémon anymore, is it very useful to have 2 or 3 of the same character anyway? I admit that I barely ever consider that as an option in any game ever, but still, you're most likely to use legendaries in most post-game dungeons when you get them, and there's only one of each. IVs don't exist in PMD so that's one less incentive to hunt for multiples. As for the permanent evolutions, that's a perfectly legitimate complaint, but it's easily fixable by letting your Pokémon devolve as well. PMD4 had the Tree of Life as an hub for evolving, so they could easily add an option to devolve any recruited Pokémon (even pre-evolveds, so you could get 3 Turtwig if you got the entire Turtwig line, for example.
Oh man, I had no clue that those IQ skills existed. I haven't fed my Pokémon enough Gummis then, I just kept hoarding them and only used the Water- and Fire-type ones to maximize growth.

I definitely agree with you about the story, especially now that I'm made a bit more progress in the game. The old recruiting system is a bit too random for my taste; it's so similar to the way Yo-kai Watch 1 handles it, just a bit less annoying because it's quicker to grind for enemies and kill them than in that game (also I believe the recruit rates are slightly higher in PMD). You have a point about the graphics, but still, the transition to 3D wasn't as bad as, like, the Mario & Luigi series. The 3DS games still look good. The Pokémon's portraits are way improved in the 3DS games in my opinion, some of them in the DS games look weird. As for the IQ system, I didn't really pay too much attention to it, the skills I learned didn't seem very useful or interesting. What is so good about it?

My favorite PMD game is the 4th, and I doubt my opinion will change. It still has some difficulty spikes like that Salamence, but I really like a few the mechanics in that game that are absent in PMD2, like the streamlined recruiting system (even though the fact that no Pokémon is always available is a bit annoying), and the new Wands items.

I realized that very quickly since I played my first PMD, believe me. The problem is that I saved in-between two dungeons, and I didn't realize that I couldn't access my deposited items anymore once I saved. So I was basically stuck in the short dungeon before Groudon with barely any useful items with me (a bunch of Scarves and 3 Oran Berries), and no Reviver Seeds, even though I had deposited about 8 already. That, and the fact that Groudon can boost all of its stats AND halve your speed, just really rubbed me the wrong way. I'm SO glad I got lucky and managed to fix my mistakes somehow. By thw way, Orbs don't activate when facing a boss, so they don't help.
