    Super Metroid (NS) 4:38 / 64% Still the GOAT. Still the same small issues*. Still without peer. (*Sometimes wonky space jump; Maridia isn't bad, but it's not as great as the rest of the game.) At this point, I'm just noticing small design things. Y'know, the thoughtful touches. "New area...

    I'm sure they'll get the obvious remaster treatment at some point. But Atlas has a habit of doing some sort of ultimate version of their games, so that's why I kinda expected TMS to get it, too. (And if Atlus plays their cards right, this could be a series of its own, imo.) Oh I agree there...

    That Direct was a scene, man. In the Wii U years, getting a port of the biggest FPS in gaming would have been a megaton. In the Switch years, that announcement has trouble getting recognized between JRPG remasters. (I called it on the TMS port. It made more and more sense as Switch became a...

    Good vibes sent, amigo. They think the storm will turn north...but they don't know when. (And it's taking its time; I saw earlier today that it was only moving at 1 mph.)

    Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA) 2:38 / 55% When I first played this game, I thought it might be my favorite Metroid. But every subsequent replay convinces me of how much better Super and Fusion are. I can't quite put my finger on why. It might be because this is such a streamlined game. There is...

    Wolfenstein: Youngblood (NS) So I'm right behind @Goodtwin as he is lining up a close-range shot on a Nazi general, but he's out of ammo and has to reload. As he's doing so, I aim a shot right over his shoulder with the LaserKraftwerk (a quasi BFG). The general turns into goop right in front of...

    TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge (NS) Quick, what's the most deadly mountain in the world? Everest, right? 308 deaths. There is another contender out there, though. A little speck on the Irish Sea, a place called the Isle of Man, is home to Snaefell Mountain. It has taken 259 lives. It's...

    Time was, the CT would've exploded at the reveal of new Nintendo hardware. How far our chatter has fallen. (Also, Switch Pro might just be a myth.) https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2019-switch-lite-is-coming-but-what-about-switch-pro

    World of Light - 2019 Games Completed Thread

    The rep is the hardest thing to get past. If someone sells DS as an interesting-but-flawed game, they're accurate. But it's a sexier headline to write about it being the most influential game of recent years (it seems that it acted as "baby's first Metroidvania" for a generation of early...

    10 Pounds of Shit in a 5-Pound Bag: The Game (NS) Listen, you kids can play on my lawn. I grok why you like this. But you can mute the hyperbole. At its very finest, this is a videogame that corners on the apex of serviceable entertainment. But at its worst, which is at least half of the...

    This was one of those sneaky-good E3 presentations. A BotW sequel is huge news, of course, but a cinematic teaser isn't our usual megaton. What we ended up getting was a sort of low-key stream of quality. Link's Awakening looks great, Daemon x Machina looks smoother than its demo, and Astral...

    Graduations, new web sites, and old faces returning. I like this, CT. In the real world, we spring for the spendy Ramen @Koenig (not that there's anything wrong with Maruchan on a rainy day).

    2019 Monday Night Call of Duty

    @Goodtwin said on more than one occasion that for Wii-era Nintendo hardware, the best non-Nintendo dev was Treyarch by a not-particularly-close margin. No one was in the same ballpark to doing what they did. Even seeing what Panic Button has done now isn't as impressive as what Treyarch did...

    2019 Monday Night Call of Duty

    Just a matter of timing. IW never wanted to work on Wii. It wasn't "cinematic" enough. So COD4 skipped Wii initially in 2007. Then Treyarch did [email protected] in 2008. In 2009, since IW refused to do anything for Wii while they were making MW2, it fell to Treyarch. IW was in the West-Zampella era and...

    2019 Monday Night Call of Duty

    Maybe you were thinking of Modern Warfare 2? That is the only one that skipped a Nintendo release at that time. (Also...why the hell Activision hasn't put out the COD4 remaster on Switch only makes sense to Activision. Panic Button could port that in a cave with spare parts.)

    2019 Monday Night Call of Duty

    Alright, I played a few rounds of COD4 with GT last night. It's been a long time since I played this one. Three observations: -This was Treyarch's first attempt at IR controls with this many customization options (although I now want to pick up [email protected] to see how comprehensive its presets were)...

    2019 Monday Night Call of Duty

    So I goofed and forgot that this coming Monday, I'll probably be out. But I should hopefully be on regularly after that. To anyone who dropped COD because it used to piss you off, I feel your pain. But believe it or not, only playing the game once a week for an hour or two does wonders for...
