  1. i got to replace my GBA battery and have been feeling some extreme nostalgia replaying Sonic Advance 2. it got me thinking of how my perception of the series was so much simpler back when i used to play the game often.

      I totally bought into Cream being the official "#5" back then. 

  2. When Morgana says "Your power's incredible Joker" at the end of a battle it sounds like the VA forgot she was supposed to be acting.

  3. Happy 10th anniversary to Super Mario Galaxy 2. It's a masterpiece and deserves all the love in the world

      Oh, definitely. I thought it was even better than the first Galaxy, and I hold that game in very high regard too.

      2010 in general is what I consider a massive turning point of my life since I was entering high school, and Galaxy 2 made it all the more note worthy. After Brawl, it was the first hype train I climbed on where I got really invested in what was being shown off, looking up all the new videos they posted the closer it came too launch. Nowadays, it's pretty difficult to fathom the idea that the game that scored higher than "Ocarina of Time" I feel has become underrated and overlooked.

       

      Nowadays, it seems like when most people point at this game, it's when they bring up Miyamoto says "No moar stohwiz in Mario", the parts that reference older games (SMW music, Whomp Fortress remake), how said references meant Mario's using too much nostalgia, or how it's "too linear" and they demand more 64/Sunshine 3D titles which resulted in Odyssey. This is why I hope they include G2 in the Switch ports so it could get second wind alongside the first.

      2 was good and paved the way for the 3D Land/World games, but I preferred 1 in almost every aspect.

      @Sean i believe you meant to say you preferred 2 in almost every aspect 🔫

    5. Sean

      Sean

      Nah.

      There are definitely specific things I prefer about 1, even if I think 2 had better level design.

      I feel like 1 had better atmosphere and I appreciated its story more.

      Galaxy 1 was better. It was different compared to before. Galaxy 2 was more of an expansion pack.

    8. StaticMania

      When you're right, you're right.

      Super Mario Galaxy MORE is definitely the better game.

      Super Mario Galaxy 2 expands by adding Yoshi, more different power-ups and worlds, so it increases the appeal, sure.

      But Galaxy 1 is fucking revolutionary, man, plus there's a lot more Rosalina, eheh. I wouldn't say 2 added nothing, but Galaxy introduced waaay more stuff.

      Haven't played it. Hoping for a Switch port.

      Galaxy 1 was the more entrancing experience for being first and retains a lot of goodwill from that which can't be taken away by the fact that Galaxy 2 was overall more content-dense with tighter level design.

      Galaxy 2 is probably the better game when taken just as a game, but I'd never recommend anyone not play them in order.  2 stands on the shoulders of giants.

      Personally I consider them Part 1 and Part 2 of (to steal Matthewmatosis' line) a single very long Mario game that gets slightly easier in the middle.  Whenever I feel like playing Mario Galaxy, I play them both one after another.

  4. Whoa I did not know you could download all of vanilla P5's dlc for free for Royal

  5. this is one of my favorite twitter accounts

     

     

  6. i keep my ff7r deluxe box on my bed with me like a teddy bear

  7. aaaa I just found my Sonic Advance 2 cartridge. I bought a charger for my GBA SP a couple months back but the battery is dead so I still gotta get a replacement.

  8. I finished the Ace Attorney trilogy a while back, it was a really fun time. Not sure if I need to get the next games in the series. I felt like T&T's last case was a nice way to wrap it up.

      Dejimon11

      Oh trust me you're gonna hate 4 after how well T&T's final case was handled.

      Apollo Justice was originally envisioned as an entirely separate entry, but Capcom forced the inclusion of Phoenix and the story is pretty weak for it. It's alright, but you have to look past some pretty glaring flaws in the individual cases that don't get addressed. The characters are all very enjoyable, apart from Trucy.

      Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice suck. Shitty characters like Athena and Trucy, two stories about saving the world from a corrupt legal system in a stupidly contrived way and the ass-pulliest of plot threads. And the worst voice acting ever. Everyone's voice is bleeeeurgh. I think they're generally quite well-regarded games amongst fans, but honestly I couldn't disagree much more. 

      You should play the Professor Layton crossover if you like the Layton series. It's more Phoenix and Maya shenanigans with very fun court sessions and actually decent voice acting (neither Phoenix nor Maya have the same actors here as in the main series). The first Edgeworth spinoff is anywhere so-so to pretty bad depending on who you ask, but it sets the ground for a much improved sequel. Unfortunately said sequel never got localised officially, so you'll have to use a fan made translation of you want to play it. 

      I'm genuinely curious about what the series might do next. After DD and SoJ both managed to suck so much, I hope that Capcom could finally have the balls to start a new instalment with a brand new set of characters. You're right when you say that T&T was a great closing to the original trilogy. They should have moved on to telling different stories with new characters right away.

      I've only played the first two. Really liked 1, liked a lot of the new ideas and inclusions in 2 but was kind of whatever about the story, in particular whenever Phoenix was being a little bitch. I want to play 3 at some point but it's not something I'm in a hurry to do though I've heard it's probably the best game in the series.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Zaysho Do it. T&T is really, really good. I think it's hard to rank the first three games in any set order because each has its highs and lows, but you're definitely missing out if you've yet to try it.

      Spoiler for opinions, no plot details:

      JFA has both the worst and best case in the original trilogy one directly after the other. Big Top is dreadful but Farewell is amazing. It lacks any overarching plot like the other games. AA sets up everything nicely and didn't need any sequels. T&T brings everything to a close. It's a bit long in the tooth, but the plot threads it ties up and the curve balls that it throws are so good.

      I thought VS was pretty boring and I'm not a Layton fan so the heavy slant toward that side of the crossover didn't do much to win me over.

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Spoilers for the crossover:

      It does feel like it's heavily in favour of Layton throughout. The entire plot is just another Layton plot, wherein nothing makes sense until Layton himself comes up with a totally nonsense and implausible solution to the "puzzle" of the city at the very end. Individual cases though? Very fun.

      If you like Layton games, definitely give it a go. If not, don't bother. And if you've not played a Layton game, give Curious Village (the first in the series) a go first. The crossover isn't the best of either series, but it's am enjoyable entry in both. Better than the shit fest of Spirit of Justice at any rate...

  9. man almost every new game I've played after Smash came out has been an RPG.

    and there was a time I thought this genre was boring too

      They're slower, but I honestly find them pretty engaging. I've always liked them but the older I get I think I appreciate their pace more and seeing what kinds of systems I like and how they work as well looking at what goes into making them.

  10. I noticed they brought back Horita for the Sonic & the Olympic Games ost. that's what I like to see.

  11. it took a pandemic for Toei to finally take a break from making One Piece episodes

    1. Polkadi~☆

      holy shit they actually stopped?

       

      the world has truly come to an end

      Pokemon's seemingly taking a break too

  12. Take Over is fine but I really wish you could still have Last Surprise as the ambush theme. I wanna hear it more often

    1. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Last Surprise is the default battle theme if you don't do an Ambush. 

  13. Final Fantasy VII days to go

  14. when you only know an artist by one of their songs you really like and when you finally bother to check out their other stuff what do you know, you like them too

      and they all sound like cool "sequel" songs to the one song from them that you already knew

  15. I really dig this official image of the Sonic squad they posted for SEGA's 60th anniversary.
