In a small break between DQVII sessions I cracked through the Poochy and Yoshi's Woolly World demo. It consisted of two levels from the first world and they played exactly the same as on the Wii U versh - just smaller, and not quite as pretty. Disappointingly, there were no Poochy levels to play, which I think is a missed opportunity. If they'd shown something genuinely different/new in the demo, I'd have a better idea of whether I actually want the game. Eh?

I've gotten to the last series of boss battles in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros.

Spoiler:
 

Not a massive fan of this M&L, to be honest... It feels remarkably padded out. I felt like Bowser's Inside Story edged on the brink of poor pacing, but DTB just embraces it.

The Paper Jambros Big Battles (which I like, and I cannot lie) are better, whilst still not being great.

Agreed (with both Rum and Zero, incidentally).  I still remember losing my original 3DS, with the save file on it, and trying to catch up again...  I gave up when I hit the desert.  Which is a shame.  PJB is much better-paced with worse 'characters'.

Had a bash on Scribblenauts Unlimited earlier (hi Cappa!). It's certainly moved on from the DS original, and you need plenty of different ideas to get through. I'm looking forward to tucking in to more. Tank Troopers continues to be good fun on the side, too.

Played Picross 3D Round 2 in my downtime of my recent volunteering trip and it's a Thumbs Up! from me, I didn't realise they added a second colour to the concept making it feel genuinely new, even after playing the original on Wii U just before it. The book store/café atheistic is very nice too.

Bump - I'm back into Majora's Mask 3D, having not gotten very far before. I'm pretty into it - I like its black sheep feel, and how things all just start to make sense as you get more masks and work out the solutions to other characters' problems. I think my main criticism would be that it's not particularly well explained how rewinding time actually affects everything, and while I know people will jump in and shout "HAND HOLDING IS FOR WIENERS", I would argue that when the mechanic makes up the basis for the entire game, it's maybe worth clarifying how it works rather than leaving it up to trial and error.

Anyway, once I finish this, I only have to beat Virtue's Last Reward and then I'll have beaten (albeit not 100%ed) every retail 3DS game I own. Unheard of!

Oh no, I'm not in a position to buy a Switch at the moment. Reckon I'll be content with 3DS, PS4 and Wii U stuff for a long while. I have plenty of games I haven't managed to beat - and there are a lot of games out for all three which I should be able to nab for reasonable prices!

Working my way through Gunman Clive 2, it's just as bonkers as the first with the way it progresses, good retro fun though.

Aww. Oh well, I guess if you're still working your way through backlogs that's fair enough. Still, was sad not having Jay around for Wii U discussion last generation, and that was when there was another machine running concurrently; so hope you'll be able to pick one up before long!

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe's post-game content has relaxed its claws enough to allow me to get back into DQVII. I think I'm near the end as we speak communicate, so I'm hoping to finish the blighter off before Ever Oasis lands on Friday.

Ever since I got the guide book in Japan I've gone back to Mario Maker as it's given me a heap of new ideas

As Ever Oasis has left the building disc slot, I've reverted to type and it's the turn of Dragon Quest VIII to shine. Early days, less than an hour in, but I can already tell I'm going to have much more fun with it than I did with DQVII. Also got hold of Kirby's Blowout Blast, which is very gentle fun. Another expanded minigame from Planet Robobobobobot, it's the 3D one where you've got none of your Copy Abilities. It's very slight but I've read it's primary a score attack, so... we'll see. Too much love for dat Kirby. Grin

What is it that's appealing to you more than VII? From the off in VIII I felt I was just being pushed on from town to town with little impact with characters I liked less than VIIs. I can't even remember how far I got as it just left that little impact...

At the minute, like any good mark, I have been seduced by the pretty. Also, the 'return' of skill points and the ability to select exactly the monster you want to be attacking has made me happy. I really haven't gotten far enough into it to judge how the story and structure are going to compare to VII (where, unfortunately, I felt partly like you do about VIII: shunted from town to town too quickly to develop a feel for the place, though I did like the idea of returning many years later, to see how your actions were remembered). Time will tell, sir!
