While I did love Xenoblade at first, I played it like, once a month. I stopped right at the Colony 6 part with the mine entrance because I was a bit burnt out at that point. Love the battle system (even if I have no dea what I'm doing most of the time), love the sidequest system, love the big, sprawling environments, but at that point I just realized that I didn't really give a crap about Shulk or Reyn or any of what was going on. Still plan on getting back into it some day, but it'll probably be another month or so.

The Last Story though. After all the hype, I'm a bit sad I never warmed up to it. I played it for about five hours before I finally called it quits. Didn't like the battle system, couldn't care less for any of those characters. I couldn't remember who was who half the time, except for alcoholic girl. It's a bit funny, I started Xenoblade right after that and my immediate thought starting it up was "Oh god, everything looks the same and the voice cast sounds exactly the same! It's the same thing!" Thankfully it wasn't. :p

ALLEGEDLY: So is Go Shiina

That would be godly.

That trilogy will be the thing that finally makes me use Steam. My body is ready.

I'm holding out for the PS3 versions.

It'll really piss me off if we don't get them.

I was once like you. :p It's what I wanted too, honestly. But I'm not holding my breath.

Ugh, bump combat. I had started Chronicles after playing the DS game, and while Chronicles was indeed far more beautiful, the lack of an attack button just killed it for me.

Best Mario game I've played in years. I've always liked the idea of merging 2D and 3D Mario gameplay, but SM3DL left me cold. World feels like the developers had so much fun making it, and the character roster and several setpieces in the levels just seal the deal for me.

And the cat suit is pretty fun to use. Meow!

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. :)

I almost pre-ordered a week or two ago. Glad I waited now.
