You should go back and play Super Metroid. The best Metroid game in my opinion. 

 

To be quite honest I am not a fan of MercurySteam games. MercurySteam developers clearly love the Metroid series, but they try and insert their own take on the series like they did with Castlevania. Other developers have done much better in my opinion. 

 

Dread is a a well made game with many design flaws that suck the fun out of the game in my opinion.

Dread is by far my favorite of the 2D Metroid games. I played through most of them in 2021 since I had never played any of the 2D games after Super Metroid and after Dread at top I would rank them Zero Mission, Fusion, Super Metroid.

You didn't play Metroid Dread? You did but thought 10 other games were better? Odd if that's the case. I think only Ratchet & Clank was nominated for Game of the Year out of your list. Did you play any other game of the year contenders?

This is a very idiotic post.

They are called pups or cubs so both are correct.

I still don’t understand the appeal of Monster Rancher games without using your own physical CDs.


I'm with you. They were mediocre games even when they came out just with a cool gimmick. Without the gimmick all this shows me is nostalgia is causing people to buy anything from their childhood.

You are linking to an over 2 year old forum post from a banned user from that site. Not really sure what that is supposed to prove.

I will have to try Tetris 99 again. Last time I played it, I used a pro controller and it was a disaster. Nintendo messed up the direction on the dpad so you have to use the Joy Con if you want to actually have a chance at winning.

As someone who only plays this with the pro controller none of what you are saying is true.

Sure would be nice if they did ttyd next.  And if both sell well that they go back to the gameplay the series used to have before nintendo derped it up because durr we can't handle multiple rpg series featuring mario at the same time. Ironic given that they killed off the mario and luigi series games. 

That's a Gamecube game so I doubt they are going to release that next in their N64 service.

We get it you play Knack, one of the best games ever made

Both Knacks are about 50 times better games than Godfall.

Walmart has GotG Cosmic Edition in stock again for shipping at $30 (it was sold out last night). Just grabbed it and some pretzels to beat shipping fees.

Regular edition is sold out unless you want digital. I usually really prefer digital, but this game is reportedly short and the disc helps justify the extra expense of the X over the S...

Over on How Long to Beat it says 17-20 hours I wouldn't call that short.

I feel sorry for anyone who because of ps+ now plays Godfall. I have never played a more bland and soulless game.

Why does R & C Rift Apart have so many invisible walls? It's one of my pet peeves with games. I don't understand that game design.

 

It's pretty obvious why games have invisible walls.

Don't think this is true either.  Put a copy of Rift Apart and Yakuza:LAD(separately) and the $15 off code still was applied.  

Yeah I used a $15 certificate today on Guardians of Galaxy (PS5) and the code applied.

I'm at the mid-40s point, but in general, I tend to play games on Normal or Easy provided there are no difficulty-related trophies. I like to get Platinums in my games, so if a trophy requires a hard playthrough, I usually have a choice to make between "Do I play the harder mode", "Do I accept I'm not going to get the Platinum", or "Do I just not play the game." More and more these days, I usually choose to simply not play the game if I see that it's going to be unforgivingly brutal (or even if it takes too long to plat. At my age, I'm not going to make it through my backlog if all my games are 100+ hour affairs.)


Lol. I can't comprehend the thought process of not playing a game I was interested in just because I couldn't get the meaningless platinum trophy.

So I just finished Infamous Second Son.... glad I played it on easy.

 

Question for older gamers (50+) do you have to play all games on easy mode like me, or do I just suck particularly badly?

I'm in my early 40's but I've always played every game at the easy difficulty level if given the option. I don't play video games to get frustrated. Although at the same time I know a lot of people who found Metroid Dread incredibly difficult and I had no problem with it.
