(Morph ball) roll on indeed. Thumbs Up!

Shame to see you had some control issues with the circle pad though & from talking to Jay he's had some as well, I did have a wee adjustment period myself because it does some things differently to the other 2D Metroid games but it clicked into place for me after 20 minutes or so and now I don't think I could go back to the old ways.

Samus Returns is a fine game - they've remade it to feel like Super Metroid, effectively, and it does. I found it tough and was glad

Secret of Mana

Bloody did it. They don't make them like this any more. Well, they probably do. Shrugs.

I bloody loved this. I never really felt like I got the hang on the pseudo-active-time-battle that goes on (I have a feeling I was a burden to my CPU buddies), a couple of times the girl one and the sprite one got stuck in the walls, I did spend quite a bit of time grinding (which was my fault for doing suicide runs to bosses during the middle of the game), the translation was definitely a 1995 translation, and it suffers from last level syndrome, where the last hour or so has to be repeated if you fail. But it's really really charming - there's a sense of fun that no modern RPG (certainly no western modern RPG) seems to have any more. And, I vastly prefer the game's odd mechanics to the standard turn-based fare of the time.

Fabulous! Glad you liked it, sir - one of the era's classics, in my humble, unsubtle and often wrong opinion.

It was - using the Rice System - a banger. And as far as I can tell, I only completely failed to do one sidequest... Duh!

Just finished SWD2 and what a nice metroidvania x dig dug game and is one of the better single player experiences I've had on Switch so far. I would even go as far as saying this might one of the must download games if you (or when you do) have a Switch.

8/10

Picross S



It's official - I'm not going to buy a downloadable Picross game ever again. S both upgrades and downgrades the recent 3DS Picross e series: upgrades, in that you can now play it on the TV with a Pro Controller (surprisingly satisfying), there are more hint options, a two-player mode, and a nice choice of music. Downgrades because there is no Micross, the 300 puzzles reveal the same 150 images because Mega Picross simply reuses the Picross results, and there's no touch screen option when you're playing undocked. The main issue I had with the game was a personal one: about halfway through the Mega Picross puzzles, which I did first, I'd had enough. There were lots of other games in my backlog that were calling out to me: Golf Story, Pokémon Gold, FIFA '18, Superstar Saga... and yet there I was, sitting in front of the screen for hours to mark a wee X after doing nothing for a couple of minutes and ironically tell myself that that would crack the case. There was no pleasure in it. Aww!

Trying to be objective rating: 13/20

Personal rating: 7/20

Given that I pretty much agree with your 'personal' score, I'd say you could probably dock a few points off the 'objective' one! It's pretty similar to the post I made about it in this thread. Speaking of which, shouldn't this have gone in there for you? Doesn't sound like you finished it, only finished with it.

I tried not to let my personal feelings get in the way on the objective score: it plays a competent game of Picross, after all. And I did finish it: all 300 puzzles have a finish time, so I've got the rosettes for both game types on the Mode Select screen. If I can finish a game, I will. Cool / No

You finished it? Man alive. Doesn't sound worth the trip. Plus points for staying through to the end, I guess...

The other half of the post devolves into 'can reviews be objective', which is a subject for another thread if that. I'd say your criticisms are reasonably objective of the franchise's unwillingness to change, and thus its staleness for long-term players.

No.

End of discussion, no need for thread.
