  1. I'd say Ocarina of Time is a way better first playthrough, but is unsatisfying to replay. Mario 64 on the other hand is a rough first playthrough, but is way more fun to replay as you improve and get fancier every time. I think Mario 64 is the better game overall, but I'll also say it's the oldest and worst 3D Mario game. Every single 3D Mario improves on what Mario 64 did, making the game more and more of a relic as time goes on. That being said, the Mario series does keep looking back to the winning elements of Mario 64 for advice, where the modern Zelda games have been distancing themselves from Ocarina of Time, and looking back to earlier games in the series for advice. I feel that alone shows how much better Mario 64 is than Ocarina of Time.
  2. Aren't sports games though? I don't think e-sports players ever claimed they're athletes, but they are playing a game at tournament levels.
  3. I don't know if this is really an unpopular opinion since I tend to get a mix of agreements and disagreements, but I feel Kirby is a series with no identity or purpose since Kirby 64 acted as a series finale. There have certainly been fun Kirby games since Kirby 64, but with no main villain connecting the games together even slightly, and no game specific characters from older games ever showing up again outside of cameos, every Kirby game feels like a really isolated and meaningless experience. Ever since the Dark Matter arc, Kirby hasn't really had what people could consider a "main series", as nothing has ever taken its place to be what the series is about. While games like Kirby and the Amazing Mirror and Planet Robobot are considered part of the main series, what exactly makes them a part of it is hard to determine. Longtime Kirby fans have been critical of the series since Squeak Squad set the template for the four Return to Dream Land games, but there's still a good amount of arguing from people who don't see what's wrong. The fact that it took until Kirby Star Allies to bring back most (but not all) of the features introduced in Kirby Super Star is telling of how much Kirby is staggering itself to "innovate" back to what it was 25 years ago.
  4. This popped up at the game store today! It's one of the last Wii U big boxes I was planning to get! I don't want to hear any wisecracks, I bought this because I love Nintendo. I'm really happy I was able to find this before I move in a couple weeks, as the cheap game store will be much farther away from me once I move. I won't get a chance to play it until I set up in the new place, since there are boxes everywhere, and no room to set up a Wii Fit. The only other Wii U big box I want is Skylanders Swap Force, and then I'll take a nice group photo of them.
  5. Nothing fancy, but I enjoyed Star Fox Zero so much that it made me want to get caught up on all of my favourite game series. I don't have a Wii/Game Cube at the moment, but next week I'll get one and play through this. $70.00 is a pretty standard Canadian price for this game if you factor in shipping, so I guess it could have been worse. When you consider how Game Cube games have been lately, "I guess I should be thankful" that the two games I need to buy for it are Star Fox games. It's a small perk of enjoying a series that's long lost its relevance.
  6. That's extremely true of the one in Mario 3D World. I actually got most of the way through Champion's Path, but dying in the second last section and starting it all over every time was too annoying. If it had even a single checkpoint, it would be challenging standard stage. You nailed it on the head perfectly.
  7. I mentioned it in the standard backlog thread, but I've now finished Super Mario 3D World. There shouldn't be a lot of overlap between the two threads, as there's only two other games on my backlog list that conflict with this list. Once I have some gaming money though, I'm going to start picking up the games in these series to work more on this project. This thread isn't dead just yet! There's still plenty of room for people to join in on the fun!
  8. I liked the one in the original Mario Galaxy the best, where when you beat 120 stars with Mario AND Luigi, you get a bonus level where you go back to the star festival and essentially take a little victory lap around the castle town and courtyard. It's a lovely little ending. I'd rather have more of that than the brutal final levels. After I beat The Perfect Run in Mario Galaxy 2, I kind of never wanted to do another level like it. Pokemon has been suffering from this for a long time. Why so many Pokemon fans defend the Battle Frontier in Emerald as something worthwhile I'll never understand.
  9. No thanks Nintendo, I have more of a life than you think I do.
  10. I finished Super Mario 3D World! I don't have a photo to show, but I beat the game, got all the way to World Crown in the post game, and then decided I was REALLY sick of it and didn't actually care enough to beat Champion's Path. I did beat Mystery House Marathon though, which was horrendous! Overall I liked the main game a lot, but the post game content sucked. I'll certainly play through the main story again some day.
  11. I asked and got the okay to do so. Like I said, I no longer even own two of the games that were on the list, and to be fair I replaced them both with much longer games.
  12. I had to update my list slightly, as I sold my copies of New Super Mario Bros. U and Mighty No. 9. (They weren't very good games) I've replaced them with Metroid Other M, and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. As for the other games on my list, I'm making good progress in Mario 3D World, Sonic Lost World, and Kirby and the Rainbow World Curse. All of them have been great fun, and have made the Wii U a worthwhile purchase. I'm in world 5 of Mario, world 3 of Sonic, (all red coins and S ranks) and world 2 of Kirby.
  13. I went Dreamcast, Saturn, Sega CD. I think all three systems are cool novelties, but none of them really stand out as something special. As far as 90s video game system flops go though, Sega easily had the best ones with the best games.
  14. Edit: There used to be a huge post I wrote at 2:00AM, but it made no sense. Please ignore this comment.
  15. My favourite games are all mascot platformers. Donkey Kong, Super Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Kirby, Earthworm Jim, Rayman, Crash Bandicoot, Banjo Kazooie, Shantae, LittleBigPlanet, stuff like that.
