Mega Man & Isabelle unlocked now in Smash Ultimate. That's cool!

Unlock order spoiler:

Also, I like how Classic Mode's unlock order makes sense. While Pikachu unlocking Shulk doesn't off the top of my head, Shulk unlocks R.O.B., that robot unlocks Mega Man, and then Mega unlocks "not Rush" in Isabelle.

I made a seperate Smash Bros. topic, since I know a lot of us are going to talk a lot about this game.

So, in World of light, which direction did you initially pick? I went West, with Marth.

I looked up on Gamefaqs how the unlock the characters, and there are 3 general methods. Nothing character specific this time:
-World of Light: Unlocking a character here unlocks him/her in the main game, like Subspace Emissary did. Unlike Brawl, you won't miss out on the Challenger Approaching fight.
-Normal play time: This does not mean 'play X number of matches', like the previous games, but actual play time, in all modes, including Spirits and Online. But sitting idle in a match doesn't count.
-Classic Mode:

Each time you beat this mode. As for who, the cast is divided into 8 groups, and each group is assigned to each of the original 8 fighters. Characters within a group are unlocked in a specific order, so Mario will always unlock X 1st. and DK's first character is someone else. If you finish a group, you move on to the group assigned to the OG member with the lowest ID # (Mario is 1, DK is 2, ect).

This means fighters in Pikachu's group will typically be the last one you unlock, unless you seek ou him 1st.

Yeah, I like this story mode in Smash Ultimate. It's different than what I thought it would be, but it works.

It's basically hundreds of Event Matches, and since this game has so many fighters and items, that gives it the variety it needs. Wish this were multiplayer like Classic Mode, and that's really my biggest nitpick with the game in general. Outside of that, I'm having a blast.

Merry Smashmas, I finally got my copy. I love that it starts with just 8 characters, seriously. I love knowing there's so much to unlock and it gives me goals. I look forward to playing this weekend, even though I have no friends.

No online for me, so it's either been local multiplayer or going through the single-player mode. Already gushed over that earlier, but this game's the real deal here.

I have no friends, rip me. Online is complete garbo I've heard, and the game has by far the highest input lag of any Smash title, even if you use a wired Gamecube controller and adapter. Anyways, I'm gonna take my Switch when I go get more work done on my tattoos today, maybe someone at the shop will play with me.

Getting close to the end of Smash Ultimate's Adventure mode now. Pretty cool times and a lot of respect for most of the franchises in this.

I can finally play Monster Hunter World at some something resembling an acceptable framerate. My best friend got a new graphics card to replace his watercooled 980Ti so he traded me that straight across for my 970. Rather than spending most of its time in the 40s with frequent dips into the 20s and occasional hitches into the single digits it now largely keeps in the 40s at minimum with rare dips into the 30s.

Image
This thing runs ridiculously cool too. Granted it's just idling with only Firefox open at the moment. (My 970 idled around 13-23ºC higher than this.) There was an interesting issue that cropped up though. This 980 has five video output ports but for some reason 4/5 are HDMI when two of my monitors are DVI and the other is VGA. Ended up having to run the VGA and one of my DVI monitors off my CPU's integrated graphics instead, which isn't really an issue since the only monitor I use for gaming is the one hooked up to the 980.

Also got Katamari Damacy Reroll the other day which was quite fun, if a bit easier than I remember it being. It's been years since I last played it but I recall the constellation levels being a lot more difficult than I was finding them this time around. Beat the first three or four of them without much issue at all. (Beat them on my first try even.)

Just Smashing it up a bit more before starting up that Spyro remake here or something. Feeling the need to play a 3D platformer again. Why not one I've never gone through before?

And I did start up the first game in the Spyro Reignited Trilogy collection. Good game so far. I'll have to look at the PS1 version sometime to see just how different these two games are, but it plays well, and that's what matters most.

So I'm still playing Warframe, but it's settled into a daily groove now rather than an obsession.

And with that, I've been able to play some more Mini Metro to the point I feel I'm pretty much done with it - just some of the more anxiety-and-RNG dependent challenges remain.

I also got a handful of presents this Christmas, amongst them...

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which I've been dipping into casually with World of Light and some games against relatives. It's Smash, it's excellent, what more can I say? So obviously what I've really poured my time into these past three days is...

Return of the Obra Dinn. A fascinating and fantastic tale of nautical misadventure, experienced entirely in fatal flashbacks and retro monochrome. It shares more than you might expect with the previous game made by Lucas Pope, Papers, Please - both are about identifying people and their circumstances. But while PP has you quickly scanning people against an increasingly intense border screening process, this is more of a slow-paced whodunnit made of three-dimensional first-person vignettes for a literal boatload of people - you have the Crew and Passenger manifest, some sketches of most everyone aboard, and a pocketwatch that will let you spy on their final moments.

It's a kraken good time.

However, it's also presented stylistically much like Papers, Please, but with even fewer colours - the game lets you choose between Macintosh monochrome, IBM 5151 monochrome, Zenith ZVM 1240 monochrome, Commodore 1084 monochrome, IBM 8503 monochrome, or LCD monochrome. Personally, I get real bad simulation sickness, and this game has been triggering reports of motion sickness all over, but once I switched to Sharp visuals (rather than the default CRT-blur) and LCD, it worked like a charm for me and I happily spent 13 hours identifying all the victims, culprits and those caught in the crossfire. Final opinion? If you like investigative games, it's a must-play.

I'm also the happy recipient of a PS4 with an odd collection of titles - Darksiders 3 ("thanks, mum!..."), Horizon: Zero Dawn (definitely high up the schedule!) and Wipeout Omega Collection (I haven't played a Wipeout game since 2097! I mean 1997!) - and another Switch title, Octopath Traveler (might need to clear some time for that...). And as for PC games... well, looks like I may have to make another backlog attack soon...
BOB is an acronym for BOB is Only BOB etc.

Went through Spyro 1 in no time at all. Only took a couple days to 100% that one. I think I'll stop there though for now. Only went through it as fast as I did because I had thrown my voice out a bit so I couldn't get behind the mic, wasn't in the mood to start tallying up votes until tomorrow, and the game was fun. That last bit's the most important thing here!

I finished Save Me Mr. Tako, which I've been trying to get done before the new year in order to complete one more Octo-themed game for "The year of the Octoling 2018". First there was the Octo expansion, then Octopath Traveler, and now this.

This game gets insanely hard at the end. At first a lot of the hat powers seem extraneous and not very useful, but in the late-game there are a lot of levels that require the use of a specific hat power, and the fact that you lose your hat in one hit and there's often not an easy way to get it back, it forces you to get really good at the platforming and memorizing specific enemy ambush spots.

I'm really impressed by the story in this, the ending felt super satisfying and overall the pacing of the plot along with the level progression kept things interesting the whole way through.

Been having some fun doing WindWaker Randomizer runs. For my first run, I randomized the items from everything.

After completing one run, I decided to do another adding keys being randomized to the mix and also being swordless. So in other words it's even sillier. Though I have gotten fortunate and found many of the important items at this point, haven't even checked 100 of the nearly 300 possible locations. Stuff like the hammer, bombs, arrows, fire/ice, boomerang.

I bought NSMBU Deluxe last night and played the first couple worlds so far. I mainly just got it so I'd finally have some kind of party game on my Switch, cause right now I only have single-player stuff.

It's been decently fun so far, though I really can't understate my disappointment with the new characters. For one thing, Toadette is quite literally -- even labelled in-game -- "easy" mode. She's the only one that gets access to that crown mushroom that makes her into Peach who has kinda broken jumping/hovering abilities, which gives her an advantage over the other characters when character selection should really not be anything other than aesthetic change. I guess they made the girl characters easy mode because it's for girls who, as we all know, cannot play video games.

But then there's Nabbit, and while I wasn't exactly excited to play as this non-character, I was curious and tried him out because the character selection had a big block of text on him labelled "easiest." I played around with him for a bit and was trying to figure out what exactly made him so "easy." He seemed to be able to run faster from what I could tell. And then at some point I accidentally touched a lakitu in the level I was playing and... nothing happened. At first I thought "does lakitu not hurt you in this game?" And then I had a sinking feeling -- Nintendo wouldn't actually do that... would they? So I threw myself into another enemy. Yup. Nabbit cannot be damaged. You just hold right and jump occasionally to beat the level. Then once the level is over, all the powerups you grabbed are converted into 1-ups. Nintendo has come up with yet another amazing and innovative handicap to put in their game.

The worst part about this, is that aside from these handicap modes, there's only 3 other playable characters (Mario, Luigi, and Toad). So if you're playing 4-player, as far as I can tell, one person has to play with a handicap. Toadette is obviously less of a handicap since she mostly plays normally, she just has access to a broken powerup that I'm not sure how is distributed by the game within levels. I looked this up to be sure, and unfortunately I am correct. Even though you can play as blue Toad instead of yellow, they're not separate characters so only one person can be Toad. I seriously can't believe the game was released like this. Nobody thought at any point in production that you might have 4 people and nobody wants to be play in easy mode?

So I'm guessing that NSMBU Deluxe doesn't have Blue and Yellow Toads, but just one toad then?

There actually is blue Toad, but he's a skin for Yellow toad. When you're selecting yellow Toad on the character selector, you can hold L to make him blue. But you can't have 2 people playing as each Toad, it's just an option for the single person who plays as Toad.

hod - indie action/adventure/explory/metroidvania type thingy? something like that. uhh anyways so far it's pretty cool, i love the aesthetic & how the puzzle solving alters the world a lot of the time, good fun so far even if the combat feels kinda shakey

Been going through Spyro 2 Reignited and gave NSMBU Deluxe a shot. Don't mind Wii U ports, but I'd rather see 3D World make it over since that's sort of the great one.

Recently started a new game+ of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana while waiting the last few days before Kindred Spirits: Full Chorus releases. Infinity mode is rather absurd. I'm playing on nightmare difficulty but since this is a new game+ I kept my armor and levels/skills from the end of the game and yet enemies still deal enormous amounts of damage despite Adol being level 92 or 93. I know infinity mode makes enemies more difficult and I'm on the second hardest difficulty but this seems a bit absurd for a character near the max level and wearing the best armor he can obtain. The first enemy you encounter in the game hits for around 600 damage when Adol has around 4300ish hp at that level. I kinda dread seeing how nasty the end game boss is going to be because that thing is already above the max obtainable level anyways. (It was level 112 or 113 iirc while the enemies at the beginning of the game are like 1-3.)

I ended up 5-starring NSMBU Deluxe last night, which I hadn't done before in the original release of the game.
It was honestly kinda easy and anticlimactic. I don't know if I'm just good at the game or what, but I remember back when NSMBWii came out, I 100%ed that game and I recall having at least something of a challenge in some post-game levels and with getting some of the star coins. But with this game, I had to look up the location of I think 1 star coin (which was hidden behind an invisible block in the middle of nowhere) and just which levels a few secret exits were (and also the location of another secret exit in one level, which was incidentally the same level as that coin I couldn't find).
As for actual execution, I really didn't have trouble with any level in the game. Even the final-final level of the game isn't a challenge at all, and it seems like they didn't even try to make it one. I've never heard anyone mention before about this game being really easy, but also I've never really heard anyone mention anything about this game at all, cause it's not like it really broke new ground or anything.
