It takes a bit to get going in Steamworld Dig 2, but when you start getting deeper into the game and earn certain upgrades that make both mining and mobility easier, it's fun enough. That's my take on the game now that I'm a little more than five hours in.

Well, after giving up with replaying Dream Team (because I'm literally soft locked in one of the areas), I decided to replay Bowser's Inside Story.
Not my favorite in the Mario and Luigi series, but for some reason the most nostalgic.

So much for being off the Fire Emblem kick. I decided to download Heroes on my phone. Game made a very nice first impression by giving me a 5* gold Lyn as my first ever summon. It was one that I could choose, but I wasn't expecting it to be the highest rated one right off the bat.

Then prepare to meet her and another certain horse mage in arena a lot (along with some dragons). She's that good.

I wound up losing in the last stage of the arena because I didn't focus on my competition. Two dancers and an unbelievably overpowered Ike got to Lyn, and she's my only standout unit. That was a small bummer, but the game is fun enough for a mobile title. At least it isn't a match three game like a lot of titles are and actually somewhat adheres to the series' rules.

Funnily enough, I don't think I've seen her as an opponent yet!

The game is overall fun (and generally very faithful to the Fire Emblem series mechanics and quirks), and I've been addicted to it since launch. Just don't get discouraged from losses in arena from common metagame units, especially if your arena team is at it's strongest.

Only thing that is even slightly frustrating about this game is trying to get the summon you want. I'm trying to unlock either version of Eirika since her actor runs the one board I'm on.

That's just the nature of a Gacha game. Sometimes they gotcha wanting you to pull more to get what you want: I've admitted to spending some money for this game to get what I want (which is more than a few times).

Just be thankful that normal Eirika is available at 4 Stars, with the 58% rate of pulling 4 stars. The pull rates were worse in the past (among many other features that weren't available in the past. No map previews, 50 stamina cap, no start of map unit position switching, no skill inheritance, no sacred seals and weapon refinery, healers with fixed numbers healing and weapons under 10 might... Looking back, it was the worst at launch).

I quit FE Heroes at the Book 2 update. Seemed like a good time to escape.

Anyway, Monster Hunter World has eaten me.

I've already beaten Book II, but I'm working on finishing up the main story now. I'm also noticing that the characters I'm voting for in this contest thing on the official site are suddenly starting to show up for summons. I had Palla before a double came in, Chrom, and now Caeda. Guess I'll vote Eirika tonight and see if I can finally get her to show up before that summon set ends. I'm just voting for favorite characters or the ones that helped me through their respective games the most anyway. That means Alm, Lucina, Sophia (never played that one, but she looks cool), and someone else will round out my nine picks.

Don't know what I'll play after this is beaten. Maybe I'll go back to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Was having fun with it before I stopped.

Oh, you can't really beat Fire Emblem Heroes yet as the story just cuts off when it was getting a bit interesting. Oops! Guess that makes sense as it is a free to play game, and they add chapters as they go. Anyhoo, that's four days in a row now where the character I voted for in that Hero Rises poll showed up. Unlocked the magic form of Eirika, and that was the one I voted for. Hope that luck continues!

Finished my initial playthrough of the Shadow of the Colossus remake for PS4. Man, the game was already beautiful on PS2/3 but they really went all out with the visuals. And the lack of HUD makes it look even better.

I'm considering whether or not I want to do 100% achievements, which I did once before on the PS3 remaster.

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King is not winning me over like a lot of other Zelda-like games I've played in the last year or two. It's lacking that certain punch to it, and the movement is a bit on the slow side.

I just finished the hold Complex Complex. It's a semi-official hold that is part of the timeline for DROD. AND GEEZ WAS IT HARD. It took over a month to beat it. Yeesh.

I did all the normal mode time trials in Shadow of the Colossus, then I switched to hard mode to get all the hard mode time trials done and now my normal mode save with all my times is gone so I guess I just get to do those all again. Great.

Played through iconoclasts. Solid game overall, gameplay wasn't very impressive but the story & style were cool, though the ending felt a bit awkward/rushed. Still have some extra stuff to find for 100% completion though

Blossom Tales gives you an item that lets you walk faster, so that fixed my one gripe. Problem is that I think there are only four dungeons. It's okay, but again, it's got stiff competition on a system that already has quite a few Zelda-like games on it already. In its own bubble, the game is all right at best. I'll probably beat it by this weekend and that'll be that.

I didn't dislike the game but between the ridiculously slow walk speed when it released and the fact it just wasn't able to really keep my attention for whatever reason, I never actually even got to the second dungeon before losing interest. I really don't get why so many games have the player moving at such a glacial pace. It's one of the biggest flaws in Stardew Valley too and the entire reason I started using mods for the game.

Yeah. I just beat the game now. The fourth and final dungeon was long, but it kept repeating certain types of puzzles, another one of the game's flaws. Final boss was a joke with the lightning spell you get midway through that dungeon, and I finally just said whatever and chugged an invincibility potion to make it even easier right at the end.

It does nothing real bad outside of the slow moving speed, but it's just a whatever game even when you get faster. If you want a 2D-like Zelda fix, I'd say to go with Ittle Dew 2 instead.

As someone who loves basically any Zelda-like game, I had a similar opinion. The game was pretty good for the most part, but I felt that a lot of the design was a bit mediocre. This is especially apparent at the endgame - for instance, the final dungeon has a puzzle gimmick that could be really cool, but the implementation is dull and never takes off, so you have a couple of “ehh” rooms that use it. The last boss is a bit of a joke as well.

I really love the ice section’s music though, so there’s at least something in the game that left a super positive impression on me.

Started up Poi: Explorer Edition on the Switch. It's an indie 3D platformer that is definitely taking its cues from Mario 64 & Sunshine. The first main island you go to is very reminiscent of Bianco Hills, and the two main characters totally stole plumber boy's triple jump and somersault moves. Saw a video of it a while back, and my bro had picked it up on his own, so I figured I'd give it a shot. It's all right so far, but I am pretty early in.

Poi is pretty fun so far as I approach the halfway point. It has the variety that I was looking for while still being a competent 3D platformer.
