  1. I haven’t been able to play it too much yet, but so far the Sega Genesis Mini is really top quality. I didn’t grow up with the Genesis, but I’m liking the game line up and the attention to detail Sega put into this thing. Definitely matches the quality of the SNES Mini.

      I think it's because with Sonic 3, a lot of people would have wanted Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

      Hacking though! :D!

    2. YangustheLegendaryBandit


      No, it’s a licensing issue Matt. I’ve looked into it and several people have mentioned it as the most likely issue.

      Here’s one example of licensing being an issue:

      Huh, Never would've thought.

  2. Finally got the Master Sword in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Man, it took awhile to finally get it, but I think this Zelda game has one of the most satisfying “obtained the Master Sword,” moments in the series. Really feels like a true reward for all the exploring you do and the shrines you conquer.

    1. Sword_of_Dusk


      Tell me, is the weapon management as bad as some people say? I'm considering getting BotW to play once I finish my Black Eagles run in Three Houses.

    2. Twinkie


      I would say it is the worst part of the game. I got used to the weapon management and didn't bother me for a while, but having even more limited space it might get bad early on. It doesn't take much to break some weapons and you can't repair them either. So you are expected to Switch them out pretty often. Fortunately pulling out a new weapon is easy. Just that it gets annoying that you want to start hording weapons but you will hit that inventory limit really easily.

    3. YangustheLegendaryBandit


      That’s my one complaint with the game. I don’t mind the weapons breaking so much as the lack of inventory space early on. Once you meet the Korok who can upgrade your inventory space via Korok Seeds I used most of mine for weapon spaces.

      I Hope Breath of the Wild 2 will have a forge system so you can repair weapons you like, similar to Dark Souls.

  3. I’m impressed with how Zelda: Breath of the Wild handles finding secrets, shrines, and areas in the game. It’s been more and more fun to explore Hyrule as I’ve played. This has become my kind of game the more I’ve played it.

  4. Banjo-Kazooie will be available in Smash Ultimate TODAY!!! AND TERRY BOGARD FROM FATAL FURY/KING OF FIGHTERS IS COMING IN NOVEMBER!!! I’m so excited, you guys! SNK is FINALLY coming to Smash Bros!

      The salt from Hero and now Terry Bogard is fantastic. It has been almost as fun as the DLC itself.

    3. eal


      I’m meh. It deserved to be played by people because it is a good game. I’m about 10 hours deep, the first serious boss defeated, and do plan to eventually return to it. But I’m still salty that the Wii U continues to have games sapped from it so soon after it died off. On top of that, people didn’t pick it up because they felt cheated and didn’t get the game they thought they were gonna get based solely of concept art but the game we got instead is great.

      I’m hoping it gets more players, but I’m mad it didn’t get an audience the first time around.

    4. YangustheLegendaryBandit


      @Twinkie I KNOW! Delicious, delicious salt. While I’m meh on Joker I’ve been more than happy on all the DLC characters added. Each of them is fun to play as and brings unique elements from their respective series. I’m super excited for Terry since KoF is one of my favorite series, and I really, really, REALLY hope that in the western release of the DLC his original voice actor is still intact. Not gonna lie, I’ll be really sad if Terry’s Engrish is replaced with English. 

      Now we just need a Tekken rep...

  5. Sweet, Chrono Cross’s original soundtrack was added to iTunes today. I’m definitely going to get it since the physical copy I bought a few years ago was a bootleg. Chrono Cross has my favorite soundtrack from Yasunori Mitsuda, and IMO is the best PS1 RPG soundtrack, especially in terms of quality.

    1. ignasia


      For me, personally...I'd say 2nd best.  Xenogears always struck me as my favourite.  Though the two are definitely masterpieces in gaming music that absolutely cemented Yasunori Mitsuda as my favourite gaming composer.

      Whenever I used to play Ragnarok Online, I would rip tracks from other games, to replace the in-game tracks.  The only two Soundtracks I borrowed 100% of their music, were Cross and Gears.

    2. YangustheLegendaryBandit


      Yuzo Koshiro and Koichi Sugiyama are my favorite composers. I know Sugiyama is a questionable person, but I judge the man by his art, not his actions. And man, I do love the music of Dragon Quest, even before I was a big fan.

      Koshiro wins because of his excellent work in the Etrian Odyssey series, but really, there’s not a song I can think of from him I don’t like. His work in the Streets of Rage games is great, the early Ys games, ActRaiser is a personal favorite...the man has a wonderful track record and can make some truly amazing music in different styles.

  6. I’ve finally been able to sit down today and enjoy the Dragon Quest XI S demo. Man, it is SOOOOO nice getting to play the game with the symphonic music being present in game. Hearing Rab’s theme on the recap screen is a big plus, as I find it really matches his wise yet playful (and downright cheeky) traits.

    1. Bururian


      I'll hopefully get to play this version this year, I'm looking forward to the 2D mode a lot

  7. ProJared finally responded to what happened a few months ago.

      Yeah...you have a point.  I would agree exploitation is often wrong, but not always.  It's fairly common though, and I would point out husband exploiting his wife's desire for a show for a blowjob, or a wife exploiting her husband's desire for a blowjob to see her favourite show is still exploitation.  Make of that what you will.

      *wanders in, reads*

      We declared blowjobs sinful? I don't recall learning that in Sunday School. (Admittedly, I don't recall a lot of what I heard in Sunday School). You got a source?

      I dunno about Protestants or Orthodox particulars, but the Church's stance on sex is that simply it's gotta be between spouses and it's gotta be procreative. As long as those categories are met, your pretty much gold. I suppose a blowjob absent any actual coitus would be out-of-bounds, but a blowjob with actual coitus would probably be fine. We don't really have a checklist or anything.

      *wanders out*

    4. ignasia


      Maybe I'm thinking of masturbation, but it's fornication that does not lead to conception, and it wastes the seed of the man, which is considered sinful, derived from Leviticus and Deuteronomy:


      This isn't a Catholic site from what I can tell.  Reading through the site, they seem more like a born-again independent sect.

      I went to a Catholic School called St. Michael's High School from half of grade 10 through to 12.  I had to take a religion class each year as a requirement.  The notion of masturbation and even a bj as potentially sinful was brought up and considered morally grey due to the nature of sex being the temptation of the serpent, and thus the requirement of sex being your statement, that it require marriage, be between spouses, and for the purpose of procreation.  Any sex in any form beyond that was generally shunned, though we weren't taught it would lead to hell directly, but would open the door to other forms of debauchery that were true sins, on top of the lesser sin of wasting the seed.

  8. Woo-hoo! Super Mario Odyssey is now 100% completed! Finally finished off Culmina Crater and man, it was tough, but I’m so glad to have it finished! Mario Odyssey was easily one of the greatest games I’ve ever played. I can’t wait to replay it again in the future and have as much fun as I did all over again.

    1. Democrobot


      I've been getting back into it after a hiatus. I beat the game before I got my own switch so I put off replaying it. I'm finding moons I forgot to grab last time. This game really is well done

  9. So Blazblue Cross Tag Battle is getting a playable tank as a character...I’ll be honest, I didn’t have a desire to play the game, but that one completely out of nowhere character addition makes me want to get the game.

  10. The Hero, several DQ Mii costumes, and the new stage Yggdrasil’s Alter will be playable LATER TODAY in Smash Bros. Ultimate! It’s time to start DQing it up in Smash Bros, boys and girls!

  11. Good lord, the final challenge level of Mario Odyssey is tough. It’s making “The Perfect Run,” level of Grand Master Galaxy from Mario Galaxy 2 look easy by comparison. So far I can make it to the 2nd major area of the challenge, but the swinging platforms are throwing me off.

    Or I completely biff it when in the lava pool jumping section. That #$*! is just awkward to control.

  12. Balloon World is a wonderful addition to Super Mario Odyssey. You can earn so much money, and seeing the slight changes to Luigi’s getup as your rank goes up make for great incentives. It makes me wish Nintendo would remake Mario Sunshine just so we can have a Balloon World mode in that game. Sunshine has a lot of great hiding places that would be perfect.

    1. RyuKisargi


      I enjoy it a bit, but haven't gotten too much into it.

      Any hints? And you need to add my Switch! 😧


  13. Its cool to hear Cuphead is getting an animated show on Netflix. I’m stoked to see what will become of it and if it has the same love and charm put into the animation and music as the game.

  14. I find it ironic that whenever I get a 9.9 rating on the first try in Smash Ultimate’s Classic Mode, it’s always with characters I’m not that big of a fan of. It’s as if the game’s like, “Oh, you don’t like Daisy at all and don’t like playing as Palutena? Well too bad, the CPU is gonna act stupid enough to let you earn the 9.9, sucka!”

    Maybe it’s just my weird luck that explains why this has happened a few times now.

  15. Whew, finally finished off Adventure Mode/World of Light in Smash Ultimate. It’s cool to see you get a few things for finishing it, though it’s weird a My Music option for the menu is an unlo-

    (sees Brawl’s vocal main theme is one of the menu options)

    HOLY #$*! THEY BROUGHT BACK BRAWL’S VOCAL MAIN THEME!!!! I can’t believe it! I never thought I’d be so happy to see a piece of music in a game before!

  16. Man, Super Mario Odyssey has been SOOOOOOOOOO good! Waiting nearly 2 years just to finally play it seems like nothing now. I’m having a wonderful time with the game. It makes me feel like I’m playing Super Mario 64 for the first time again 20 years later!

  17. Smash Ultimate is proving to be a wonderful game, dare I say an ultimate experience. Having played Smash since the N64 days the latest entry has a lot to love. Having missing characters back like Snake and a whole smorgasbord of stages is excellent.

    1. RyuKisargi


      I've found I'm really liking it myself.

  18. Wow, Smash Ultimate sure is a considerate game. Very first character I unlocked was Ness. It’s like the game knows Ness is my go to character for the series.

    Edit: Guess it depends on what you play/do first. Thank you then to whoever decided the first character to unlock is Ness via Smash mode!


    1. ignasia


      My third most commonly used character after Link and WW Link!

      Definitely need to get this game.  Lucas is pretty awesome as well once you unlock him (he plays a lot like Ness), as does Pikachu if memory serves.


    2. YangustheLegendaryBandit


      And now Sonic is unlocked. GOTTA GO FAAAAAAAST!!!!11!!1!

      I actually wasn’t a huge fan of playing as Sonic in Brawl, but in 4 I found him to be a lot more enjoyable to play as. Brawl’s physics made it awkward to play as Sonic.

  19. Oh man, Cold Steel 2 got me pretty teary eyed when Rean reunited with Alisa. We’re talking DQ11 Hero finding out who Rab really is and the cutscenes that follow in Dundrasil levels here.

    It’s crazy the games got me choked up like that since I normally don’t get like that when playing games in the first place! That’s the power of Dragon Quest and Trails of games I suppose!

  20. I’ve been wondering why the 4th Division is so strong in the Cold Steel series. Well, turns out it’s leader Craig the Red is voiced by Sean Schemmel, aka Goku from Dragon Ball! No wonder that part of the army is so strong! Haha

  21. Guys...I managed to see the end of the Nintendo Direct and heard the news about The Hero from Dragon Quest making it into Smash...but I DID NOT expect Banjo and Kazooie to make it in! I saw their trailer and I was smiling the entire time! So glad to see the duo back!

    1. RyuKisargi



    2. YangustheLegendaryBandit


      Come on, Matt. Don’t rain on my parade here.

    3. RyuKisargi


      Tootie better be there in Smash too. As a high-ranking Spirit.

  22. Wow, I am having some weird luck in Earthbound right now. Decided to resume my file on my SNES Mini, and after beating one of the Mad Taxis in Fourside I wound up getting an Xterminator Spray, which apparently can be used again and again. Never seen this item before in the game, so I’m guessing it’s a really rare drop or something!

    1. ignasia


      Don't forget to save your Rock Candy and only use Condiments with it.

      Also, very cool.  Good luck with Poo's special equipment, particularly the Sword, and the ultimate weapon, the Gutsy Bat (I have still never found one legitimately).

    2. YangustheLegendaryBandit


      I got a Sword of Kings on my first playthrough after 20 minutes. Never have found another one in my many replays over the years.

  23. Hooray, I got the platinum for Shadow of the Colossus. Feels good to finally have it since Shadow is one of my favorite games. Now it’s time to finally get around to playing The Last Guardian.

    1. ignasia


      Grats mate.  That one can't be easy.  Someday I'll have to get the PS4 version, but definitely waaaaaay down on the list of must-have games.

    2. YangustheLegendaryBandit


      Maybe by the time you get the PS4 remake we’ll have a full remake of ICO as well on PS4. Having all three of the Team ICO games on one system would be excellent, and I imagine if BluePoint Studios did an ICO remake (like how they handled the Shadow remake), it would have a lot of love and care put into it.

  24. The hills are aliiiiiive, with the sound of COR BLIMEY!

  25. Nice! I finally maxed out the stamina bar in Shadow of the Colossus! Now to see if I can finally reach the elusive Secret Garden and cross the great stone bridge that leads into the Forbidden Lands. Never done either before in the game, so time to give it a try!
