@Rudy_Manchego Yeah, I was having the exact same problem. I wasn't expecting the amount of materials you find for sure.

Metroid: Samus Returns (3DS).

It's a pretty great game, though I don't think it'll go down as one of my favorite Metroid or 3DS games looking back on it. It's a vast improvement over the original Metroid II (the omnidirectional aiming in particular should be a must in any future 2D Metroids), but I didn't think SR388 was a particularly interesting world to explore. Don't get me wrong, the attention to detail in the backgrounds was fantastic, but there wasn't really anything environmentally unique about one region over another. One room may be swampish, the next technological, then volcanic, all in the same area (which weren't even given unique names, just Area 1, Area 2, etc.). Only Areas 7 & 8 looked like they had a particular theme throughout. Fun game, though.

Finished main story of Nioh, not the dlc yet. Very very good game. Can't wait to tackle all the dlc and get into the high end gear.

Just finished Pokémon Sun. It's the best Pokémon game I've played since D/P/Pt. Great story, unique characters, better and more varied gameplay as well as other miscellaneous improvements to the formula which were really appreciated. I'm actually kinda looking forward to the Ultra versions later this year after playing this one.

Finished and uninstalled the awful Broken Age.

One of the many games guilty of ruining my gaming time recently. But its done. Woo hoo.

@themcnoisy Ha, ha! Yeah, I got like 75% of the way through Broken Age and I just haven't been able to make myself finish it. It's one of those games that bugs me that I never finished because I know I'm pretty close to the end, but just have no interest in doing it, except for the trophies. I probably never will. Unless you tell me the ending is something special.

If the other guy is getting better, then you'd better be getting better faster than he's getting better, or you're getting worse.

@Th3solution some of the trophies are glitched. Theres one hidden one which is at 1.4% completion, yet you need to have the prerequisites for that trophy in order to get one which is at over 5%. So annoying. And its near the end.

The games ok, but it tries to be too clever and some of the puzzles are way passed logical thought. With all point and clicks and walking simulator type games you cant view a guide to appreciate them, else you just bypass the dialouge and feel of the characters. But with broken age and tbf the length of time between playthroughs that was more often than I would like to admit.

@themcnoisy yeah, I enjoyed Broken Age but there were some parts of it that I needed a guide because the solutions were bizarre. I think the main reason I enjoyed it is that it felt different than a lot of other games I played, but the act of self-discovery was definitely hindered by needing one.

Just finished Red Dead Redemption. Amazing game! And the ending was as good as I've heard. This is definitely Rockstar's best piece of work in terms of narrative. I'm really excited now to play the sequel!

Gonna finish off this series by playing Undead Nightmare now, which is fitting for October month. Hopefully the single player part of it will be as fun as the multiplayer.

In my backlog cleaning effort, I've so far finished Fire Emblem Echoes, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus, Batman Arkham Origins, Jak and Daxter, and Kingdom Hearts 1. Still got a ways to go, but progress is made.

@DerMeister Just wondering, how did you find Fire Emblem Echoes? I'm a really big Fire Emblem fan, and have played a lot of games in the series, but looking into it in detail, it seemed like the gameplay in Echoes was a bit iffy, with lots of the map design just being terrible open fields. I have heard the story is good though, which does interest me. I loved Fire Emblem Fates Conquest for its map design and overall gameplay, it was incredible, but the story made me want to pull my hair out, and it seems like Echoes might be the reverse scenario

@BranJ0 The maps in Echoes can be dull at times, especially the deserts in Celica's route and the game's dungeons, but I felt the challenge, especially at the later stages, did a good job of masking it. The story is pretty good, written well enough, and has great voice acting to boot. If you can get past how oddball it is in comparison to the other games, it's worth a playthrough.

@DerMeister Hmmm okay, sounds like it may be worth a shot! I'll go for it once I've cleared out my backlog a bit!

@BranJ0 To give a more specific answer regarding the map design, the reason why you see a lot of open maps is because those aren't really the 'main' maps. With 'main' I mean the ones that you would see in a chapter of a typical Fire Emblem game (like in Blazing Blade). The other ones are basically 'filler' maps just because the developers wanted to fill the overworld map with more things to do. The 'main' maps are actually very good but obviously they are not on the same level as the other later games, just because this is a remake of the second game in the franchise.

So I wouldn't go in with the expectations of the other 3DS FE games, but with the expectation of a remake of an NES game (that has a surprisingly good story).

@KratosMD Ahhh okay, that makes more sense. It's a shame the developers didn't spruce up the maps a bit from the original Gaiden, but as long as they're still quite good, I think I'll enjoy playing this! The main reason I asked is that the last Fire Emblem game I played was Revelation, and the map design was so atrocious that it put me off playing Fire Emblem for quite a few months now, but with Warriors just around the corner I'm getting back into the mood, and if the story really is good, I can't wait to play it!

BranJ0

DerMeister

@KratosMD @BranJ0 Yeah, I'd say that's on point with Echoes' maps. I haven't played Awakening or Fates yet, so I couldn't give a direct comparison. I suppose a good reason why the maps feel dull is because you'll likely see the dungeon and overworld maps more than the important ones. The story battles were fun and memorable, but I don't think I could say the same for the battles en route to them.

Recently beat Hue from the IGC last month and really enjoyed it! I'd definitely advise it for anyone who likes a short platform/puzzle experience.

Hoping to have Child of Light done in the next couple of days as I've only got a couple of bosses left to beat.

It's been quite a while since I've actually made it to the end of any game but I did recently beat Actual Sunlight and Home on Vita. They were super short games so that helped. Still gotta go back to 100% Home on Vita and then possibly on PS4.

@SilentJ I played Actual Sunlight, which was short but actually quite poignant. Games addressing mental health so openly are not very common. I can’t say I enjoyed it, given the depressing nature of the story, but it was unique and worth the hour or two to play through. Left me with mixed feelings. How was Home? Worth the short playthrough?

If the other guy is getting better, then you'd better be getting better faster than he's getting better, or you're getting worse.

Just finished Evil Within 2, really enjoyed all 21 hours of it. The last 3-4 chapters built up to a great ending I thought. Don't really like to put a number on it but if I had to it's an easy 8. Hope they continue this series...

Plus Sebastian sounds like Solid Snake sometimes.
