The only challenge in MC's boss battles was getting your little LinkBros to line up right on that Manta Ray thing, otherwise I don't see how any of the other bosses could be considered harder than LBW's. But we'll just have to agree to disagree. ^_^;

Most of the bosses were pretty obvious strategy-wise, and stocking up on fairies and having the tunic and sword upgrades made them a cakewalk, but I still think they hit me more. Moldorm's still a pain in the butt years later, the giant hand kept getting me because of the collapsing floors, and he and sword-an-shield guy gave me trouble because I kept forgetting that hiding in the wall was an option. XD

I do think it's an easy game, but definitely not the easiest Zelda game. Some of the bosses still killed me. I never died once in The Minish Cap, though. I'd say that one's the easiest LoZ.

Got this game three days ago. Already at the last dungeon. I've been playing it that much. I LOVE this game. They got the range of the sword-swing perfect. They got Link's running speed perfect. The mini-map on the bottom screen looks exactly like ALttP's but as you explore the overworld, you notice all these little changes. And the plot only takes 10 minutes to get started. It's everything I've wanted from a Zelda game for years.

What happened when I got to Lorule was completely unexpected, so I loved how they subverted some things. Also, I really like how each of the seven sages has an identity and you can sort of tell which OoT sages some of them descended from. It's a nice little touch.

So GOTY for me. And I'm pretty sure it's toppled Seasons as my favorite in the series.

I'd be a bit more forgiving of the CC if it didn't apply to the 3D-plain running (holding down R2 or whatever) as well. Most battles are just me trying to dodge and quickstep, which is a finnicky function at best. Vastly prefer TP.

But as I said, what they did with the titles and how the skills from them work is awesome, and I love the "sidequest RIGHT HERE come and get it!" icons. The game's still overall fun, I just don't really find the battle system anywhere near as enjoyable. Oh, and I really love how there's no world map and everything's pretty much set apart by roads and paths.

Stopped playing at the Rockgagong in the desert last week. Thanksgiving week at work has left me very little gaming time. lol But I take a lot more time to get through RPGs nowadays anyway. Hell, I love Xenoblade Chronicles, but I started that in freaking May and still only play it like, once every two weeks.

So I've been playing Graces f on and off for about a week and a half now. To whoever tried to warn me about the battle system, you were right. I hate this.

I do like what they did with the titles and how easy it is to spot a sidequest now though. Those were welcome improvements.

In a related note they NEED to do an HD Galaxy bundle. Those games glistened, even at Wii output levels.



With Nintendo's entry into HD gaming, I would not be opposed to a Galaxy 3. @_@

^It was only a dumb joke.

Anyways. Game looks great and a lot of fun, and even though I never had the chance to play Galaxy 1 and/or 2 I'm getting the same vibe out of what has been shown of 3D World.

Does the new Zelda for 3DS comes around the same time as 3D World by the way?

I think they'll both be out on the 22, same day as X-Box One's release.

But more importantly, the same day as the most anticipated game: Mario Party: Island Tour. :p

I actually spotted the GOTY edition at Walmart today. I was waiting for that to come out before picking it up. :)
39  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: South Park: The RPG on: November 01, 2013, 05:14:31 PM
I almost pre-ordered a week or two ago. Glad I waited now.

I suppose, though I'll always find the spritework charming.

Eh, while I like the game, I'd say after how much effort B/W/B2/W2 put into the story, a lot of this game seems very weak in that regard. The rivals are all annoying (stop interrupting my adventure to drag me to some extra thing or give me some speech on friendship or dancing). Team Flare is kind of all over the place in their motives, and they're really just kind of... stupid, overall. There really didn't feel like there was enough of a build-up to the final confrontation with them, AZ and the Pokemon on the cover seem shoehorned in. I know there's foreshadowing to AZ, but his story didn't really make me feel anything. And the gym leaders. Besides Korrina, and a pre-gym scene with electric kid and Wulfric each, they seem to just be there for five minutes before you trounce them. They're so unmemorable that I keep mixing up the fairy and psychic leaders in my head. Gyms themselves were cool though.

I was also a bit "wait, who?" on the champion in this game, but X/Y has one of my favorite Elite 4s in all the games.

I still really like the game, but after the last few installments this one just feels like the main selling point was graphics and everything else took a hit for it.

I just want to thank you guys for mentioning that it was still available for pre-order on GameStop's site. I freaked out today when I saw it was sold out on the other sites.
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y on: October 12, 2013, 11:48:59 PM
Don't forget to get your Mystery Gift Torchic, guys! :) And yes, I love the new EXP Share and save quickness.

Hate the player character's friends though. 3 out of 4 of them are as annoying as the D/P/P rival (Barry?). And the Route 1 in this game has to be one of the most pathetically short things ever. Your towns are ten steps away from each other! XD

I'm not so much mad I missed it as much as I'm mad that Gamestop basically lied to me as to what I was pre-ordering when I made the pre-order.
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wind Waker U on: October 04, 2013, 10:05:15 PM
I AM weird. It makes total sense!
