Finished the Tomb Raider reboot yesterday, great game. Really enjoyed the freedom of combat(how you can choose various approaches  to combat, like triggering explosions that kill everyone instantly, or take enemy by enemy as  silent assassin with your bow or just go in guns blazing and fuck everything up with an Axe /Shotgun/Rifle).  I also thought the platforming was  excellent and not the automatic platforming I despise in many triple A games nowadays and 3d Zeldas, moving in the game felt right it was extremely joyful to run around the world. The story was entertaining enough and I enjoyed the new portrayal of the character.

Started playing Guided Fate Paradox. Game is meh so far. However I am interested to see where this story goes. I am disappointed in the solution to the first wish though because it brought up very real issues with the story of Cinderella.....and then just said nah I'm not touching that.
Haha I'm surprised that's all you can add after beating a game (then again, I say TOO MUCH after beating one...).
I found the controls were pretty 1:1; but I definitely had issues with the way the WiiMote could catch what direction you're trying to swipe at (especially an issue when trying to pull off a skyward strike or the bosses/enemies that requires cuts in a certain direction).
Well keep in mind I post here in morning during my time before I go to work, so I don't always have enough time to make long posts with all my thoughts. However controls really do suck in Skyward Sword. 50% of the time the strike I tried to make was not the one made. After a while I just gave up on the Deku Babas and just used the Beetle against them instead. Of course that took forever because of how small of a range you have for getting below the Deku Baba head. Swimming was one of the most miserable control schemes that I have ever seen. It was so incredibly awkward to try and get to certain areas while swimming (hence why the Water Dragon can choke on a fish for making me swim so freaking much because she was bored or something). Then during the final fight the controls were screwing me over because apparently if you have a shield equipped and z-target a foe you automatically bring up your shield or something resulting in you being unable to do a skyward/lightning strike. So in the end I had to unequip the shield so that I could actually perform the necessary attacks while keeping the final boss in view at all times.

I hate motion controls so much at this point.

I'm well into the second map now in EOIV and I've been going online to find some QR code quests and items that I had forgotten to check for earlier.

999 - I'm up to the laboratory in my second playthrough. I forgot all about this room, and the puzzles in it. Hopefully, it will come back to me.
I DO like that most of what I've done so far has been new.

"We" includes you. They love their fans too! What other game company has things like a fully sponsored yearly Halloween cosplay contest for the fans?

Yeah I do like them and XSeed for really being people behind their fan base.  Bless'em.  EA should learn from them.

EA is far beyond redemption. If the devil had his own version of the devil, that's who EA has sold their souls to.

But wouldn't the Devil's idea of the devil be good?
Double negative et al.

I find your attempts to call EA God disturbing.

I've got it bookmarked, but it said I wasn't far enough into the game to do it yet.
