The Winter of 2cold4gamez! (community event)
« on: February 17, 2021, 03:01:50 PM »
Beginning on Wednesday, Feburary 17th, I plan to stop buying new games for about a 40 day stretch which will end on Sunday, March 28th. This is an opportunity to focus on my backlog and appreciate the games I have instead of buying way too many games I'm never going to get around to as I often do. I would like to call upon others to do the same so we can make a fun community thing out of this.

I will not deny that this event is somewhat inspired by the Christian tradition of Lent, in which Christians embark on a symbolic 40 day journey through the desert by giving up something that's important to them. However, as many of you who are reading this know, religious discussion is banned on the Nintendo World Report forums. There is a time and a place for that kind of discussion and it is not in the Nintendo World Report Forums. If I did not believe that this could be a fun community event on it's own merits, than I wouldn't be proposing this idea.

How this works:

The idea is simple: Each person who signs up earns six points for the Nintendo World Report community. Any games purchased by someone who signed up for this between now and March 28th will cost the community three points. However, there is also a way to earn points. Should someone complete a game they already own, they will earn the community one point. I would like to turn this into an annual event so eventually we will have a sort of leaderboard to compare our current score to previous years and try to get new records and stuff like that. I think it'll be a fun time.

In the meantime, I'm going to set a preliminary goal for the community of 0 points. Let's see if we can hit that baseline.

Love this idea, the wicked temptations of new games are a strong and powerful force.

I don't think I'm going to get the 6 pointer, but breaking even seems like a reasonable goal. Count me in.

I don't know. Nintendo of Europe announced this:



and I wouldn't be surprised if NA also has something like this occur after today's Direct. May want to start this next week.  ;)

As it stands, I can go long stretches without buying new games. Heck, last year I probably had 3 months+ of not buying any games. (So, give me all the points!) But as it stands right no, I've been thinking of buying some older titles off the used market this weekend so the timing period of this event will not work for me and I'll just be bringing things down to -21 if I sign up.

I wanted to wait for the direct to make sure I could handle this and I think I can. Just to be clear I probably will buy a game or two but, I think I can cut back on my spending and definitely play more than three for every one I buy. With pre-orders should we count the date we pre-ordered it or the date it releases and we get charged?

It's up to you. I did this without any prior notice so people preordering stuff ahead of time isn't a concern.

I've dubbed 2021 my year of the backlog, too.  In an effort to save $$ and feel less shame about buying games moving forward, I'm taking a sabbatical on buying anything new until 2022.

All that to say - I like your idea and i'm in.

Interested to join in too if y'all don't mind having a boat anchor around. Fear my score will mostly bring everyone down, as I'm probably gonna nab that Capcom Arcade Collection while it has 2 free games on there. But hey maybe it'll motivate to at least actually play them!

Bought a couple of vouchers on the eShop for Bravely Default 2 and TBD, so that sets me back to 0 points.

However +1 point for finishing Yakuza 3 Remastered. I really enjoyed this. I'm playing the series in order and I would say this is my favourite game since Yakuza Zero, which is one of the best games of all time.

3 as a remastered PS3 game managed to exceed my expectations. Whereas 1 & 2 which were ground-up remakes, fell below expectations having been blown away with Zero. The game introduces some quirky new features, tons of side quests and the main story feels like the next big step in Kiryu's journey.

My main complaint would be all the hostess dating, which are required to finish all the substories. There's decent writing and some chuckle worthy jokes but why is there so much of it? Thousands and thousands of words, essentially a visual novel worth of text in this minigame. 84 trips to the hostess club and millions of yen later, I finally completed all the substories. Weirdly addictive but not very satisfying.

I'm working through Xenoblade 2 myself. It'll be a massive timesink but I hope to work through it soon.

I downloaded the f2p multiplayer shooter Valorant for a multiplayer night that a streamer I follow did so once Monster Hunter Rise's preload goes through I'll be breaking even as well.

All right time to lower the anchors!



Downloaded two games:
-3 points: Capcom Arcade Stadium: 1943 Battle for Midway
-3 points: Capcom Arcade Stadium: Ghosts 'n Goblins
Beat one of them:
+1 point: 1943 Battle for Midway
Total: -5

1943 Midway is not a very good game, just kinda loops 2 types of levels 16 times in a row with more of the same five enemy types everytime. Powerups aren't persistent either.
Also tried Ghosts 'n Goblins but lo & behold I'm again bad at this. Who would've thought after trying and being bad at the NES, and SNES versions?
Also don't love the whole Capcom Arcade Stadium wrapper. Everything seems to trigger a 3-8 page tutorial, and it's annoying the menu options change when you're playing a game or selecting one. The NSO NES/SNES apps are way less fancy, but also a lot easier to grasp at a glance.
So far this has been a rousing success.

Despite my efforts to stop buying games I did it without even realizing it :-[.  I have been learning Japanese and was recommended "Learn Japanese to Survive" on Steam. The cost was $1, it is educational, and it's on PC (which I don't really use for gaming) so I didn't even think I had bought a game, but technically I did. One the other side of things I saw the credits roll on Rhythm Heaven Fever. This happens after 35 levels and I think there are 50. I am going to keep playing and finish the other 15 but I wanted to get something else on the board to balance my purchase. I have a couple other games going now so I should be able to post a few more completions in the next couple weeks.

LOL. I had a suddenly had a vision of 30 or 40 people joining up for this event and then we all bought a bunch of games. We won't just torpedo the score past 0. We'll sink it so hard and fast to leave a crater on the ocean floor!!

I am going to keep playing and finish the other 15 but I wanted to get something else on the board to balance my purchase.

But if buying a game is -3 points and finishing a game is only 1 point then how is it balanced? You're still at -2. Pokepal is really out to punish you all if you buy a game!

It's balanced around not buying games, not so much completing them.

Technically each player starts at 6 points so you're still at +1.

Now up to +2 for finishing Tell Me Why.

It's a story game so the less the said the better. This is a smaller shorter affair, so if you're new I would recommend starting with the Life is Strange series. These kind are games are incredibly fun in co-op pass the controller style. The stories are so engaging you can't help discussing every little choice, sharing theories and predictions.

For a variety of reasons I don't plan on buying very many games lately anyway, so this should be fine for me. Though I am going to get Monster Hunter Rise at the end of Match, but I'll still be in the positive with just that.

I finished Mega Man 9 today. It was technically a replay but the first time playing it on Switch. I had not played it since I got it on Wii years ago. I got stuck at the final boss and went to stage select to buy some e-tanks only to realize I had to replay all of Wily's castle, thus the long time it took.
With Rhythm Heaven Fever I am stuck at the last level, Remix 10. I currently have 49/50 medals but I just can't seem to get this last one. I did get the OK rating so I technically completed the level but I wanted to get that Superb medal on all levels. I have been playing this one level for about a week so I think it is time to give up.
Pretty close to finishing a few other games so more will be posted soon.

I played the most on-brand game possible for the Winter of 2cold4gamez! Mario & Sonic Winter Olympics. This was my first Mario & Sonic Olympics game. Though it only worked for smaller play sessions 1-2 hours, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Curling makes really good use of the Gamepad. The ice hockey offerings are the best Mario sports I have played on Wii U. Even the Question & Answer tour that was dismissed in the NWR review was a fun take on Mario Party. There was also something special about getting Mario and Sonic Characters together. Watching Donkey Kong play hockey with Dr. Robotnik, Waluigi figure skate with Blaze, or my mii in a Bobsled with Mario and Sonic is really fun stuff the first time you see it.

I also added The Last of Us Part II last week. I thought it was better than the original in almost every way. The sound quality is so good and supports customizable 7.1 surround sound which really helps when you are sneaking around.

Punched the clock on Axiom Verge, was surprised to see Dr. Metts' name in the credits. Good game, maybe not great, but it's very impressive for a solo developer. Terrific music especially.
Also started Resi Revelaitons for the RetroActive.
+2 for now, hoping to add one more by month's end.

Yes, of course! Between this and The Swapper it's nice to really get a feel for what exactly we could've had for a dual-screen sidescrolling Metroid on the platform.  >:(

(In all seriousness, I was slightly underwhelmed by the Gamepad support in Axiom Verge. You're shown a map and your weapons inventory on it, which are handy at a glance, but it retains the two-notes-per-area limit of the other versions. Would've been cool to write your own notes on it per room, or zoom in/out, see the entire map at once, etc.
But that would be a lot of extra work for an outsourced port of a one-man project, so I get it.)

There's a sequel to it slated for this year which I'm more interested in now, if only for more music and sound effects. Looks quite different too, with short-range attacks and perhaos less beam weapons, but increased mobility. If you can climb anywhere this might be the Metroid 2 of this series.

I finished Light Fall on Switch. This is the platformer where you can create the platforms as you go. It was unique and felt good to play. Recommended for fans of Celeste and other 2D indie platformers.

I also bought three games on the Wii U eShop. You may have seen an ad for gold coins if you renew or but a switch online membership. When I tried to renew it was forcing me to use my balance, but that was money I had set aside for digital games on Wii U. So I had to spend that money before it would let me pay for online with a credit card. In the end I did not even get the coins. This whole event has really made me more conscious of how locked in a spending cycle I am with games, but honestly this is the best I have done in a while.

Rolled credits on Resident Evil which brings me to +3, likely my final score. I'm not going to bother with the online mode, but will post some thoughts in the thread later. 

This whole event has really made me more conscious of how locked in a spending cycle I am with games, but honestly this is the best I have done in a while.

Might be projecting a lot here, but might this be a partial byproduct of how discourse around gaming often is very forward-looking? E3 predictions, pre-orders, watching Nintendo Direct, etc. all contribute to placing emphasis on (future) purchases. But once the initial reviews/podcast cycle is done for a game, its longer tail becomes spottier for anything that isn't a live service game.

Since people tend not to play the same things at the same time either, discussion quickly becomes fragmented. You play LightFall now, others may do so in a year or never - and so it can quickly fall from relevance.
This in contrast to forward-looking discussion, where everyone shares a similar outlook/position: nobody has played Future Game X, everyone has access to the same experience with it so far (trailers/announcements), meaning the audience attention for Future Game X is much more cohesive and shared. Discussion flows easily, as there is no imbalance of experience with the game between audience members.

It's also much easier to buy games (done in minutes), or research games you haven't played by checking reviews and footage, than it is to actually play them (easily a few hours). I think these factors play into our greedy impulses to want more than we could reasonably ever play/finish, while there are social reasons to favor speculative discussions... Which may further fuel said greed?

Eloquently said Discord. I spoke with Khrushenada about the Wii U games and he thought that since the funds were already on the eShop that it would not necessarily count. I will leave it up to Pokepal when tabulating the final score.

I managed to get one last game in Silver Falls Undertakers. You might remember this as the only 3DS game to release this year (so far). Like Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars it is buggy and I had to replay it due to a glitch. However, if you have nostalgia for Atari 2600 games and like drawing your own maps on graph paper then you will enjoy it for what it is.

I was doing so well, going to tank my score in the last few days.

Bought 2 games, Her Story (on sale) and Old Man's Journey (can't really explain this purchase, thought it had a funny name).

Beat 2.
Old Man's Journey, it was short and inoffensive. A unique puzzle game, but far from revolutionary.
Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey Redux, this one is long and has downright offensive game design. I'm talking Zelda 1 burning bushes levels of annoying. I stuck with it and in the end I didn't like this game. I think the dungeon design is horrid, invisible doors, invisible walls, invisible teleporters. When you actually need it the map is useless. Not a fan. On the bright side I'm now caught up on the series ready for 5.

The only RPG's I'm missing in English are SMT 1 on iOS (never going to play) and Persona Q2 (didn't like the 1st one).

Got very close to equalising, as I got to presumably the final boss of Pokémon Trading Card Game for GB, but I was wiped out by an extremely powerful Dratini.

Bought:
Bravely Default 2
Interest free loan for Nintendo in the form of a game voucher
Telling Lies
Her Story
Old Man's Journey

Finished:
Yakuza 3
Tell Me Why
Doki Doki Literature Club
Resident Evil Revelations

Huh. I thought this went into the start of April or something. Well, even though the due date was Mar. 28, I say sign me up anyways because I ended up buying no games in that time period as my early plans fell through. Might as well add my cool 6 points to the grand total.

Despite my efforts to stop buying games I did it without even realizing it :-[.  I have been learning Japanese and was recommended "Learn Japanese to Survive" on Steam. The cost was $1, it is educational, and it's on PC (which I don't really use for gaming) so I didn't even think I had bought a game, but technically I did. One the other side of things I saw the credits roll on Rhythm Heaven Fever. This happens after 35 levels and I think there are 50. I am going to keep playing and finish the other 15 but I wanted to get something else on the board to balance my purchase. I have a couple other games going now so I should be able to post a few more completions in the next couple weeks.

Donkey Kong (Donkey or DK for short) is the main protagonist of the Donkey Kong series; the laid-back, stubborn, yet trustworthy hero of Donkey Kong Island and the leader of the Kong Family. He is also a main racer in the Mario Kart Series since Mario Kart 64 as well as the protagonist in the Donkey Kong Country animated series.

Come on bot, every true Nintendo fan knows that DK was a main racer in Super Mario Kart  :P

Not according to the Donkey Kong Wiki, where that information was copied and pasted from.
