Playstation State of Play was rather tame, not showing any of their big titles, but it wasn’t bad. Returnal looks awesome, Kena won me over, looks like an old school 3D platformer with cool combat and Solar Ash has my interest with its visual style.

Oddworld for free is a nice surprise too. Doubt I would have paid for it, but I’ll definitely play it now.

I’m on the haunted graveyard level of Banjo and really hate those green ghosts ><.

Halo 1 holds up great on smolbox.

The Diamond and Pearl remakes look like straight up remakes. Probably the least amount of effort put into them from any prior remakes, I think. The new 3DS could have came close to playing them. Nothing wrong with that exactly, but it largely appears to be a "stop bothering us with D&P remakes now!" release. I'm kind of 50/50 on getting them.

However, Pokemon Legends: Arceues? A prequel adventure set in Ancient Sinnoh with improved models and graphics from Sword & Shield, taking clear inspiration from Breath of the Wild, and that appears more open-world (catching and battles without traditional battles)? Yes, please. Instant-buy next year.

I want to believe in Pokemon Legends, but it already looks like the Switch is gonna struggle with its ambition. Will it be amazing or turn into Lets Go Piplup? Will wait for some more details before getting too hyped.

The Gen 4 remakes look like the same comfort food Gamefreak has been putting on Switch ... Which is fine? I’ve only played Platinum the one time, so at least they are kinda/sorta new for me ... not really but still. They’ll be fine for the next time I’m in the mood for a Pokeventure.

Read that Game Freak outsourced the Diamond/Pearl remakes so they could focus on Legends. I could be wrong, but I think this will be the first time a main series release (which includes any past remakes) isn't being developed by them.

You might be disappointed in Diamond/Pearl if you played a lot of Platinum. Platinum added a lot to the gen, such as the underground, that really added to its replay value both during and after the main story. But while nothing in the trailer indicated anything beyond a traditional remake, I'd be surprised if some elements of Platinum or something new isn't added to them.

Rumors have New Nintendo Switch out by Christmas with 4K display, but far more importantly an OLED screen for mobile. I was very worried it would just be the former, and like the Lite that would mean that it wasn’t a Switch at all. I definitely would not have bought a TV only Switch Pro, but this one is a Strong Maybe.

If it turns out to be true (been rumored for a solid 2-years now), I'll get it because they'll almost certainly develop some key games (BOTW2, Pokémon Legends, likely Prime 4, etc.) that play much better on it.

Similar to how some games were developed to only play on the New 3DS. Although I'm sure they'll make sure future games can also work on the original Switch too given it'll have an install base likely around 100 million by the end of the year, and many of the major first-party titles/exclusives are selling over 20 million copies and have now begun to break 30 million. 10 million will soon become the "minimum" figure that any future major first-party/exclusive game can be expected to sell.

Don't want to get too off topic, by the Switch will probably end up having 1/4 or even 1/3 of all video games in history that have sold more than 20 million copies.

Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a terrific platformer. Gives me Tropical Freeze vibes but with a more dynamic overworld. Probably my favorite discovery on Game Pass so far, though obviously Halo and Banjo have more historical significance.

Speaking of Game Pass, Outriders on Day One is pretty huge. That game was going to flop hard and now everyone is talking about it. Publishers will take notice. Alongside the Bethesda drop, Game Pass is just dominating the news. Ratchet and Clank will remind everyone why they got a PS5, but that is still three months away.

Also enjoying my second go through of Crash 4 alot more. The 60FPS help, but I also switched to Modern Mode which doesn’t use limited lives. I wanted the classic Crash back, but the levels are just so long and I was sick of getting stressed about Wompa Fruit lol. Definitely fits the style of the game alot better.

Been tempted to buy Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair in the past. Didn't know it was on Game Pass though.

Game Pass does continue to get better and better. Just read that Octopath Traveler, which just launched on Microsoft platforms, is also on Game Pass! Been very tempted to buy this one many times, but the price has always kept me away.

The Super Mario 3D All-Star price creep has begun! Copies have begun to sell in the $70/80 range just one-day after it became unavailable (remember: the digital version was also discontinued). Some are MUCH higher, but seems like there is currently a fair amount available right now in the $70/80 range, but some listings do say "almost gone."

I know Flava'd has it, but if anyone else here was interested in it and still doesn't, you may want to visit your local retailers to see if they still have it before prices do become ridiculous. Once the copies still on shelves and reseller stock does run low/out, those asking prices in the many hundreds and thousands will probably become the norm.

The last game played by me was Sekiro, but after so many attempts on a boss without success, made me to give up on this game. From the start is was interesting, until I met the 2nd boss, it was such a pain. I came back to World of Warcraft, because this is the game which I like and play better the all other games. I lost a bit of time trying some other games, so my gear was so bad for raiding and I got a wow boosting service to get some new pieces and make my legendary bracers.

MLB The Show 21, which was a Playstation exclusive franchise up until now, will launch Day One on Gamepass. How in the world did they pull that one off? I might have to swap my Smolbox for a Big Boi before the end of this gen.

I started up Dragon Quest 11. I like it so far (about 3 hours in.) Dunno if I’ll be able to go 100 hours, or however long it will take, but the story seems like a good one.

The Impossible Lair, the final level of Yooka 2, is living up to its reputation. Even with 42/48 Beetallion guards (shields basically) I have only been able to make it halfway through!

I did finally conquer Crash 4 though! Those last few levels were so hard but also so crazy and interesting. Also looked and played so well on the PS5.

It will probably be worth over $100 by the time I get back to Sunshine. :funny:

I kinda regret missing out on Fire Emblem, but they've been putting new ones out a pretty steady pace since Awakening so I'll just wait.

Post Re: Last game you played?
GamePass certainly is on a different level right now. Glad you're enjoying Dragon Quest XI. It's a long game, and takes maybe 5-10 hours before taking off and gaining the other party members to mix up the battles. I'd recommend spending at least a little bit of time grinding in the dungeons (or just do a few extra battles while traveling from place to place) before taking on the final bosses in them.

I want to get into something new that will take up a lot of time. Been contemplating Monster Hunter Rise, but I don't know. I *like* Monster Hunter (played Tri and Generations), but I got sort of tired of them rather early on. I do still need to play Paper Mario: The Origami King, so maybe I'll finally pick it up.

Also want to play Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, but want to play it on the Series S/X. Hopefully they'll be easier to find come summer.

I finally beat Zelda: Breathe of the Wild after four years of intermittent play. One of the best games of all time. Wow! Now onto Mario Odyssey.

New Pokémon Snap next week!

I've been avoiding reading too much about it, but there are reportedly over 200 Pokémon, branching paths, and day cycles!

Debating if I want to get Snap right away or wait until after I finish Resident Evil VIIlage, which comes out May 8. Will probably depend on reviews

Snap will probably be short. Not as short as the original, but I'd be surprised if it takes more than a dozen hours or so to "complete" the game. If you're mostly looking to beat it, a two-week window before Resident Evil is probably enough time.

Resident Evil Village to me seems like the most hyped release in the franchise in quite some time. Hope it delivers. If reviews are great, I may consider picking it up at some point. Haven't played a game in the series since 4 though.

Post Re: Last game you played?
Check out 7 first. You could probably find it for 10-15 if its not on Game Pass. It was basically a reboot of the series, switching to a first person pov to bring back the horror elements the previous few had abandoned. VIIlage is a direct sequel too (unless you wound up with Ending B like I did lol.)

I’m a recent convert to the series, but have loved playing 7, 4 and the remake of 2 over the last few years.

I'll look into 7.

So... Nintendo randomly added ONLINE PLAY(!!!) to Super Mario Party after over 2 years in release and no updates since launch.

Reviews are great for New Pokémon Snap. 80 on MC with 43 reviews already. Wasn't expecting bad reviews, but figured the consensus would be "good enough" and something like "enjoyable new entry to the original favorite, but too similar with little effort made to expand on the original's concept."

Yes! And Returnal is getting strong reviews as well!

Though its so weird to me that I haven’t bought a new release since the PS5 launched with Miles Morales and Demon Souls, but now we have Snap 2, Returnal, VIIlage and the Mass Effect remaster all in a span of 3 weeks and they all look great. :wacko:

Post Re: Last game you played?
Definitely addicted to New Pokémon Snap. The basic formula is unchanged, which is great really considering the original is still fun, but literally every thing else is vastly improved upon.

The biggest difference is that redoing the same course rarely feels like you're playing the same course over again for many reasons. The courses all have multiple levels that feature different Pokémon and things to interact with. And each course also has different paths in addition to changes in the course (and different Pokémon) during the Day and Night depending on the chosen level of each individual course. And the Pokémon themselves are much more animated and free moving that you wind up with a lot more variation to the pictures versus just trying to get the best shot possible at a particular time. And having every Pokémon species divided into 4 different rating categories takes all of this and multiplies it by 4, really. Also, the challenges of capturing certain interactions (that you have to figure out how to make happen) for the NPCs makes replaying the courses yet another benefit.

I have played a lot since Friday (in-game playtime says 18 hours--don't judge me), and I know there's still some secrets still to be discovered in all the courses I've played so far. (Don't even think I've unlocked half the courses yet given I have 73 Pokémon registered out of a reported 200+.)

Breath of the wild.

Oh my god I can't believe how far off the main story I'm going but I'm obsessed with finding kologs now.

I am in love with this game

VIIlage living up my expectations so far. More action than Biohazard (you get a shotgun earlier than usual), but still very scary. The first person makes it so intense. I’d rather get a remake of the first one with this engine than the remake of 4, even though that one is my favorite.

Children of Morta - great game! The roguelite genre has been gaining favor with me for awhile but Hades, Slay the Spire and Morta have confirmed it as one of the best. I hope Returnal sells well (I’ll get it later in the summer!) so more big studios take a chance on this type of game.
