    World of Light - 2019 Games Completed Thread

    Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (3DS) A charming and surprisingly tough adventure through a whole region instead of just one mansion. The humor is top notch, and the game does a great job of making you feel like you're on a wacky adventure and it's up to ole' Luigi to save the day. Not a...

    Fallout: New Vegas (PS3) One of my favorite games ever made. Is it perfect? No. What it has however is some of the most personality packed into any game I have ever played. My New Vegas can reign for as long as I live! 9.5/10.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dawnguard (NS) Very entertaining piece of DLC. I love being a vampire hunter, and the new character that is added as a possible companion is fantastic. Some very nice lore building as well. 9/10. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn (NS) I didn't get into...

    Star Link: Battle For Atlas (NS) I had a good time with this one. The feedback loop is pretty satisfying once you get the hang of it, and there's a bunch to do. The story and characters were severely lacking. However, on Switch you can really just pretend this is a new, open world Star Fox...

    Luigi's Mansion (GCN) The visuals impress even in 2018 and the game is loaded with charm and has great attention to detail. It's a flawed gem. I wish I could rate it higher, but the controls are awkward and it's ultimately not long enough and has no extra content. 8/10.

    Nintendo Switch Online

    Personally, I would prefer a smaller selection of full on remasters for the Gamecube and Wii titles. I am looking for titles in bulk for NES through N64.

    Mario Tennis Aces (NS) The Adventure Mode was mostly fun, but had difficulty curve issues. I found the final boss to be far easier than a lot of the random courses in Adventure Mode. Multiplayer is great though; my fiancee and I are having a blast playing together. 8/10.

    Nintendo Switch Online

    So far, so good. I have noticed a slight decrease in lag in Online games (ARMS and Splatoon 2) and I like the NES games. My main interest is when are they going to bring SNES through Wii games? I want to play Donkey Kong Country!

    Nintendo Switch Online

    I thought I'd make a thread for us to keep tabs on what all is being offered in Nintendo Switch Online. It goes live later today!

    Octopath Traveler (NS) The perfect blend of pulpy story with gorgeous visuals and spot on gameplay. I haven't been sucked into a world like this in a long time. 10/10.

    Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (GCN) Partially amazing, partially frustrating. The core gameplay and atmosphere is absolutely incredible, and the game holds up visually extremely well. 9/10. EDIT: Upon further contemplation, I give it a 9. Some incredibly frustrating parts however.

    The Octopath Traveler thread

    I am over 30 hours in now and I must say that the sheer amount of grinding is a bit much, or maybe I'm just not used to JRPG's.

    The Octopath Traveler thread

    I would say that the music is one of the best parts of the games. Each locale has a rather lovely theme, and the main battle continues the long tradition of JRPG's having amazing battle music.

    The Octopath Traveler thread

    Closing in on 20 hours of play and I have 6 of the 8 characters. My highest level is Primrose at 27, and lowest are 2 at 20. The grinding is starting to become a bit more burdensome, but I'm still having a blast.

    The Octopath Traveler thread

    I have 4 members of my party thus far, working on the 5th. Closing in on 10 hours of play. I must say that the difficulty is right in the sweet spot for me; especially when it comes to grinding which there is a lot of. The combat will actually threaten to give you a Game Over if you just turn...
