    Better idea: read the comic it's based on

    Legendary Emerald got a reaction from Ashwalking Bat in Looking back at it, Metroid Prime 2 could have been my favorite game of the series wi   
    Prime 2 is my favorite in the trilogy by a big margin. First game has a lot of tedious back-and-forth between areas and progression never feels smooth, and the third game's linearity works against it on repeat playthroughs. Prime 2 has a Zelda-like structure where you know what your objectives are every time you enter a new area, and that makes for a better paced game, at least in my experience.

    Ah, I see Barry is a man of culture, too. Can't say I'm terribly found of Galaxy myself.

    I'm watching the video right now, and I don't think Barry is being needlessly contrarian. He's simply outlining why he doesn't like it.

    This is indeed a quite well made video.

    Legendary Emerald reacted to JezMM in Welp Barry from the Game Grumps made a video stating that Super Mario Galaxy isn't go   
    This status is even more clickbaity than his video's title and completely trivialises his point.
    His point was that the game tries to straddle the line between a sandbox Mario game (64, Sunshine, Odyssey) and a course clear Mario game (Galaxy 2, 3D Land, 3D World), while failing to succeed at achieving either style's best strengths.
    At no point does he imply that Mario Galaxy is a bad game, only lamenting that it could've been much better if it was more focused in certain regards.  He even mentions how he loved the game when it came out, and his inspiration for doing the video was simply that he had vivid memories of everything he loved in 64 and Sunshine, but not Galaxy for some reason, and he wanted to go back and try to identify why that was.
    Watch the video, it's a superbly done video essay and one of the few I've seen where almost every time I thought of a counter-point to what he was saying, he would acknowledge and address said counter-point a few seconds later.  (There's also a lot of little jokes and "bits" along the way so it's entertaining in it's own right as a half hour watch).

    Legendary Emerald reacted to Bobnik in Welp Barry from the Game Grumps made a video stating that Super Mario Galaxy isn't go   
    I watched the video.
    Yeah, his reasoning is quite valid imo. It tries to be both an obstacle course Mario game and sandbox experience Mario, yet falls short on both sides.
    Granted I don't really like Mario platformer games in general, so...

    Legendary Emerald reacted to Chili Dawg in Thoughts on Boy Scouts dropping the “Boy” title of the organization?   
    Stuff being less inherently gendered is probably a net benefit to society at large, so probably good.
    Tho this is the first I'm hearing of this, what are they going to be calling them? Just scouts?

    Seems like no harm done to me.  I'm not overly familiar with what either group of scouts do outside of what their occasional featuring in american TV shows has implied to me but it doesn't seem like any of it has any requirement for you to be any particular gender.

    Not unconditionally or automatically, I don't.

    Depends if they deserve it, which is usually not the case (overall). Plus I can have respect for certain aspects of the person but not at all for other aspects. Sometimes I respect a person more for their ideas than for themselves. It's all relative.

    Well, Black Knight had the benifit of having its cutscenes be in 2D, and a couple FMV. Not to defend anything, but wouldn't comparing it with Unleashed be a fairer comparasion?

    Legendary Emerald got a reaction from Waveshocker Sigma in Back to MN9 How the fuck do you make switching weapons so counter intuitive, it's inc   
    MN9 is a thoroughly mediocre game. My expectations were never particularly high, so I think I enjoyed it more than most. You're absolutely right about the weapon switching, though. It was so awkward that I never used any weapon that wasn't the sword or default gun.
    I will concur that Mighty Gunvolt Burst is a much better game in pretty much all regards. When Inti Creates isn't beholden to Comcept and Inafune, they can do some great work.

    I mean Sonic Team's cynicism in Forces was transparent the moment they revealed classic Sonic, and that was the first goddamned teaser.
    If they can get that far without embarrasing themselves again they've already got a leg up over that.

    I still don't get people's gripes with that zone. It's just a bit long, it's not even much harder than the other zones, aside from the actual boss fight.
