☆☆☆★★ Ok the game got a little bit better with the last updates, introducing enchantment shards, mastery, more possibilities to get lucky coins etc. But repeating the exact same levels all the time to get as many snoutlings and as much mastery and as much experience as possible is a bit lame. I'd love more variation. And I'd love more pig allies for the Chronicle Caves. And less cost for those premium classes...

☆☆★★★ I’ve sorta made up with the game since I wrote my first review. There’s still cheap levels and cheatingly difficult ones mixed together, there’s still a huge luck factor involved, but something has been done about cheaters and the Daily Challenges at least. There’s still many ways for Rovio to draw gems from your pocket, but also many ways to earn gems. This has become a better game ever since I wrote the first review. Definitely.

★★★★★ A really well-made game so far. Yes, it's easy. Yes, it does feel a lot like GO. But it's great for what it wants to be, and everyone should at least try the game out, especially those that criticise it for shallow reasons.

I thought Angry Birds 2 would be done at Level 500 because I couldn't see more levels than that, everything after that was covered in a fog of war. Quick , I thought.
Well, I was damn wrong about that. At this point of writing, there's 1900!!! levels. And constant updates provide constant more levels. Your bird score multiplier can go up to 140 and more. I'm sitting at a laughable 15 to 25 right now. Constant updates provide constant additional bird levels. As Britains would say: it's like painting the Forth Bridge!

My criteria for mobile games state that I should complete the main objective at least once. The objective would be to clear all levels. Not going to happen in a million years. Because of that, there is no "credits" to the game either. Once you retrieve the eggs from a Boss Pig, the next one instantly takes them away again (I want cutscene gameplay!!!!1111!!!).
So, I had two choices: either make the game a , or make it a earlier than intended by myself.
Originally, at the time of its release, the game had a mere 200 levels. I've long passed this mark, which would sorta qualify for a . Also speaking for a , I've just come in 1st place in the Legendary League, the highest league that the Arena has to offer. On the other side, with the constant updates which push the true ending further and further away, a would be justified, too.

I've finally decided to make it a , despite a small stomachache doing so.

Great to hear that you're doing better financially now! I have no idea what financial instability is like, because thankfully my family has never had any such problems. There was one time last year when my aunt had an AWFUL car accident and had to buy a new one, which did cost us quite a bit of money, but that didn't affect us too much. It did have quite a big effect on my anxiety for a while, though.
Your backlog plan is looking good. Hope you have fun with Let's Go! I won't be buying the game because I don't like Gen 1 very much, and I'm not a fan of removing so much content from the following generations from the game to make it more similar to the originals. If you can't decide what game to play after that, just tell me.
Holy shit, only 4-5 hours!? I've never had to sleep for that little before, I can't even imagine what the day after would be like for me. I guess I'd just sleep with my eyes open, not sure if I could even comprehend what anyone was trying to tell me. I don't want to sound like a broken record or anything, but you should get as much sleep as you can. That falling asleep in class thing happens more often to me than I'd like to admit, but it's mostly because I tend to get very bored while some professors explain stuff that I can just read and study later on the book (doesn't help that one of them has a very soothing voice).

Oh man, I'm sorry to hear about your living situation. I'm especially sorry I can't offer any advice for that matter, because I admittedly can't imagine what any sort of financial crisis must feel like. We seem to take disabilities very seriously here in the UK, so I've been having the help of disability benefits keeping us stable. Hearing other people have such less luck makes me feel so guilty for them. You're such a great friend, so I hope you can get everything sorted out quickly.

While Pokémon GO may be as physically healthy as you say, I can say with experience that focusing on or being addicted to one game for too long can be strenuous on yourself and it would probably be a good idea to let go of it immediately if you feel its hindering your productivity too much. I've been trying to cut down on Team Fortress 2 for a while to some success, though it especially helps with how infrequently the game has been updating lately. During that time I've been experimenting with things like coding and 3D modelling, which has been keeping me in a calm and healthy state of mind for the most part.

Hey there, Yoshi friend! It's been too long. Of course, I still remember who you are; I'm happy that you haven't forgotten about me, too.
I would ask you how things have been going, but judging from your post, seems like it's been quite rough for you... One real-life tip I would give you is to not underestimate sleep. I have no idea how long you sleep, but I sleep on average 9 hours a day, which for me is just barely enough to not zone out constantly during the morning. Obviously you're better at recovering energy through sleep than I am, but still keep in mind that sleeping is important. As for gaming, if you need motivation to play, maybe a reccomendation or two if you feel like playing something but can't decide what, or anything else, message or PM me on here. I'll be glad to help with that however I can.

I'm back... again. I don't know for how long, but I hope to be spending some time here.

Life gets so monotonous when you're playing nothing but the same 1.5 video games. Pokémon GO is still super fun and helps me stay a bit healthier than I was pre-GO, no doubt about that. The half game is the occasional Shuffle which I almost completely lost the motivation for, the occasional Solitaire which is a repetitive game, and the occasional OpenTTD which quickly gets boring in the "sandbox" mode that I configured and which I mostly play just to feed my need for playing with trains that connect towns with names that are familiar to my eye. In other words, this half video game doesn't really keep my inner child satisfied.
I do still have a lot of unfinished and even unplayed games on this page. Thankfully, at least, the list hasn't grown since then, but it will grow with Let's Go coming up... Some of those games I've been craving to play since years.

The big issue is, my family is in dire need for money right now (the reasons and circumstances are very complicated so I'll leave these out) which heavily cuts down my free time because I actually have to work, I'm back to university again since this month which further cuts down my free time, leaving me almost only the evenings and nights (and Sundays... sometimes), at which I can hardly stay up for a long time because I've noticed that I really need the sleep or else I'm not myself on the day after and/or I oversleep.

Lately I've been looking back at the past years and all the projects I started back then and never finished, all the plans I had and never put into action, all the time I spent on cool things back then and now can't anymore, all the crazy things I did back then which I had to give up because I was told to grow up and later have been hit by the harsh reality of life actually forcing this process of growing up onto me, and I'm close to crying. I want my childhood back. I need my childhood back. Desperately. At least some of it, just so much that it doesn't have a negative impact on my current quality of life. I'm not meant to be an out and out worker.

The last time I played a video game that wasn't casual was half a year ago. This is too much of a timespan for me to bear. It's time for me to re-connect myself to my roots from which I prospered.

And thus... Yoshi is back. Yoshi has a lot to catch up with.

The city kingdom isn't very tedious; it's an example of a large level done right. The one awful large level was the desert. I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that half of the kingdom was completely empty. I guess they caught that classic desert feeling perfectly, at least.
I don't remember any particularoy different level in the lunch kingdom (I'm assuming that's the one you're talking about, and not the castle). I do remember one Moon that I couldn't stand, though - as a Podoboo, you have to dive from nearly the peak of the mountain to an extremely small lava pool near the city. It took me quite a while just to get used to the Podoboo's physics. It didn't help that it takes 40 seconds just to get back to the diving spot.

There's a few levels in 3D World that encourage exploring to find some Green Stars. While it's true that most levels are linear, not all of them are - just like Odyssey has a few linear platforming sections, which are quite similar to 3D World's levels. They're not completely unrelated games IMO.
Saw you talking about the green Broodal on Sherwood's page. Here's a tip to fight him: don't rush him down to break all of his hats, but instead, make him trigger the attack where he spins on the floor. As soon as you see him start it, jump away to dodge it, and wait until the attack finishes. He'll stand still for a while, and you can safely jump on his back to hit him. This will help a LOT for the second and third hits.

I think I know which flow seed you are talking about. I knew about Yoshi, but the ability to play as him as a capture ability was a delight and something I wanted you to find out first hand.

Thank you, I appreciate that. Glad to hear that your grandmother is doing well physically.

Yes, that is true.

Edit: Am I missing something about multiple colored yoshis in Mario Odyssey? Or is your avatar the result of your editing skills.

Happy to see you're having the best time with Odyssey's endgame than anyone else I know. (Though fighting the Broodals again in a row in the Dark Side can piss right off since it's really nothing more than useless padding) But other than that, I'm curious to know how you think Yoshi controls. Me and Koopa_Paratroopa were just talking about how a potential 3D Yoshi game using Odyssey's Yoshi mechanics could possibly work and seeing how you're basically unrivalled in regards to loving the Yosh, are there any thoughts you could contribute?

Looks like you reached the best part of Odyssey! Yoshi aside, the Mushroom Kingdom is my favorite kingdom in the game, because it's a great place to explore that doesn't feel either too small or too empty (about half of the kingdoms) and has a lot of fun Moons - the only one I don't like at all is the "gather 6 sheep" Moon.
BTW, what did you think about Odyssey? Is it your favorite 3D Mario game so far? I think it's worse than 3D World and Galaxy 2.
