These are two of my favourite DS and Wii games. Im so happy they are getting a remake. With the developer shutting down a long time ago, I never thought we would get another game in the series.

I play Tour every day, so this is kind of disappointing

I have an Arduboy and have this video about it

Im glad to hear John is enjoying Starfield. Im about 10 hours in right now and loving it.

Morrowind is actually amazing on Series X. Near instant loading, 60fps, much higher resolution, but I don't remember if it is 1080 or 4K

Im glad Gui is playing Immortality. I loved the game when I played it last year.

Finished Resident Evil 3 Remake. It was great, I liked it so much more than 2 Remake. It is much more interesting with the world design. You go to a bunch of different locations instead of just being stuck in the police station for hours.
It has more action than 2 and doesnt rely so much on puzzles.
I think Jill is now one of my favourite Resident Evil characters.

If you dont mind seeing the end of the final boss, watch this scene, it is great

I played A Short Hike recently. It was good. I think the game is a bit over hyped though. I didnt like it as much as other people seem to.

Some final thought on a few games.

Resident Evil 2 Remake.
I was interested in this game because I heard so many good thing about it on podcasts. It turns out that I dont like it. Even though its a remake, going back this far into Resident Evil it just too puzzly for me. I dont like Zelda Dungeon like world design. I dont like the puzzles. I dont like Mr X. I dont like the survival aspect of barely having enough ammo to take out enemies.
Out of Resident Evil 4, 5 6, 8, Revelations, and 4 Remake, this is the first RE game I have played in the last few years I have not finished because I dont like it. I much prefer the newer more action style RE games.
I bought 2 and 3 remake on a significant discount earlier this year, so Im still glad I at least gave it a try.
I will start RE 3 Remake very soon.

Dillon's Rolling Western.
I put about 5 hours into the game, but Im done with it because I didnt get a good enough rank to unlock the next area. I dont feel like going back and replaying three missions again to try to do better. I had enough fun with the game.
It is actually pretty good, but very repetitive. Its also not very portable friendly because you can only save between each mission, which is probably 20-30 minutes of game time. I was playing it in 15-20 minute chunks before work in the morning. There was several times when I just had to leave the game running in sleep mode.
Afterward, I quickly revisited Dead Heat Breakers, which I played some of back when that game was new. I didnt like it very much at the time. Playing it now with more knowledge of the series, I appreciate the game more. It is much more complicated than Rolling Western, but you can see how the gameplay has evolved.
I dont intend to play more of Dead Heat Breakers.

Super Princess Peach.
I started this a few months ago when I streamed it here
The put it down for a while. I picked it up again over the weekend just to get it finished.
Its actually really good. Its a fun, cute platformer with a look and feel very similar to Yoshi's Island.
Im saying I basically finished it, but I didnt actually finish it because to beat the final boss, you have to collect all three toads in every level. I have most of them, but I cant be bothered going back to get all of them. Plus, from what I saw in a guide, the final boss seems like it would be very annoying to beat, so I dont need that.
The game also has amazing 2D art for the DS. You really should watch some of my video to see it.
As for Peach's powers of flight, water, fire and health restoration, they are all used very well in the level design in various ways. The only issue is how it was implemented, with them being her emotions. It doesnt really bother me, but I think it is probably why we will never see a re-release of this game.
Also, Im really looking forward to the new Peach game next year.

Travis Strikes Again is great, but not as good as No More Heroes 3

I assumed RE2 was all just exploring the police station. I just looked at a guide and it turns out Im only a quarter of the way through the game.

Turn out that I much prefer the more actiony resident evils and this is much more limited resource survival.

The police station layout and progression also feels like a zelda dungeon, which I dont really like.

If I end up skipping this and going to 3 remake, I hope I like that more.

I bought one, but it hasnt arrived yet. i will be using it with Pokemon Sleep

I was shocked with The Tea Party being talked about and being used in this episode. Im very familiar with it because my brother was a huge fan of them back in the day.

During Netflix Tudum last month (where they announce all their new stuff and show new trailers and stuff) they announced Too Hot to Handle 2. The first game must have been popular enough.
The trailer for it is here

This is hilariously bad for Nintendo. Can they put the online on maintenance mode until they fix it?

I would hope for something the same as the Xbox One X, but I expect something the same as base Xbox One.

Im a big Life is Strange fan, so Im interested to see more from Dont Nod. This is more of a visual novel than I was expecting, but if its all voice acted, that is good.
Maybe I will play it on Xbox if the loading is less of an issue there.

Tactica looks like a typo of Tactics


This was a good one. It will be an interesting transition from old Zelda talk to new zelda talk next week

I havent played an Atelier game before, but I will play this one

It was great having Jonny and Xander on this week

After hearing my email, I wanted to back and check exactly how far I did actually get in the two times I played it on Wii. I loaded it up and it seems like in my original play through, I got up to some point in Lake Floria, but not as far as the Ancient Cistern. That is more than I thought when writing the email.
The second time, I got up to some point in the Lanayru Sand Sea, but I dont think I got up to the Sand Ship.
