I finished playing the Wonderful 101 and wow. This is a very crazy game. In fact this might be the best Gurren Lagann style game I've ever played. That's how crazy it is if you've ever seen the anime and the plot is actually quite as interesting as Platinum's other games. I can understand why Platinum Games do want to port this to the Nintendo Switch, although I wonder how because this game really does take advantage of the Nintendo Wii U's gamepad, probably more than any other game I know of.. In fact it seems like they intentionally called it Wonderful 101 to set up a sequel called Wonderful 102.
Just got MARIO Kart 8 Deluxe and I must say that I love it so far. The controls are so easy to use compared to some past entries such as the GBA or Wii games and I actually won all but one of the races I’ve done so far which has never happened to me before. The game deserves all the praise it has gotten.
Playing Xenoblade Chronicles X, the best seamless sci-fi open world experience to date in my opinion and finally got the flight module. Oh man! The open world looks ten times more beautiful now that your mech can fly.
Soooo I finished off Akiba’s Beat for the third time just as Exist Archive arrived! Y’all already know my opinions on the former so I’ll get straight to the latter.
So far I’m having a ton of fun. The music is epic, the gameplay is addictive, the chibi graphics are adorable and the world is gorgeous. I’ve only just begun the plot really so I don’t have an opinion on it yet, but I do have to say I’m very hyped to find out what happens next. The characters are also all very solid, except for Mayura imo - she’s alright and is very mysterious, but her whole “I’m a pure cinnamon roll” thing is sorta boring. My favourite character so far is Yamatoga because he’s already really interesting but also has a decent amount of snark too, followed by Mitsuhide just because I think he’s pretty cool.
I got that Playstation Classic, so I'm going through those games right now. I "beat" Mr. Driller and R4 Ridge Racer Type 4, I started Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Revelations: Persona, and I tried (and failed) Cool Boarders 2 and Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo. I also tried out Wild ARMs and that might be the diamond in the rough here. I also look forward to Rayman.
In case my silence said it, I spent a long time working through Exist Archive, but I finished it and boy I love it! It’s got a couple rushed plot points at the end and crashes more than I’d like it to but otherwise it’s a really fun game with an endearing cast, addictive gameplay, a beautiful art style and amazing music.
So I’ve now got a bunch of games since it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and out of those, one of them is Layton’s Mystery Journey because I finally caved after seeing it second hand in a local game shop. Since Exist Archive was incredibly big, I decided that just playing LMJ would be a good, calming, short game to have a break before I play any other big games. So far it’s... ok I guess? The music’s good as ever and the comedy is brilliant but I’m not that invested in any of the cases. I like our main cast but other characters aren’t really that fleshed out tbh. I know the last case is meant to be good and gives some background on a certain someone though, so I’m gonna keep playing because it’s also very quick, but it is just slightly dragging on a little.
FF VII on the Switch. I must say that the option to speed up the game and Limits make the first three bosses easier to take out quicker. The Scorpion Robot was ridiculously long in the original version.
