Starfox is still fucking amazing, F-Zero is still fucking amazing. I can't stop playing all these SNES games, obviously I've played them constantly over the years on various emulators but they're a different level on here, an absolute joy to pick up where you left off on the telly or handheld, and they look a million dollars.

Just get the rest of your old games on here for ancient confused sods like me Nintendo you weeping orifices.

Far enough to speak some on somnium now. Main thing to get out of the way is that this isn't really like 999 or Danganronpa. The gameplay elements are nowhere near as frequent or involved as the later and it doesn't have puzzles in the same way as the former. Think of it more as a straight Visual Novel with Adventure Game elements, and even those are more like a bizarro version of the Telltale scenes where you're walking around interacting with stuff.

However, I'm still really enjoying it. It's more of a standard procedure murder mystery, but it's never on you to solve things and the game all focuses around one case. Also your left eye houses a sentient AI named Aiba and you can enter the dreamworld of various characters at times. Plus some sideline discussions into Egyptian mythology, secret societies, alien intelligences, parallel worlds and all that stuff. It's no Dear Esther by any means.

There way you choose to solve puzzles in the dreamworld is where your story branches come from. The way your actions in the Somniums can affect the real life story works as a system and you can jump to any scene at any time through a handy flow chart, but the suggestion is to play through to one ending before messing around too much.

The bulk of the game is traveling to a scene in the 'real world' and interviewing people, with locations having optional hotspots to look at that might give extra dumb jokes or dialogue. There are looots of dumb sex jokes and puns, btw, talk of lanterns feeling like breasts, stereo systems looking like dicks etc, some funnier than others. When you've asked about everything you can, you're allowed to move in to the next destination and repeat. Sometimes the order is fixed, others you have like 3 or 4 to choose from, but so then you just hit them all and then progress again.

I can see people who go in expecting court cases or tense murder trials or brain testing logic puzzles being disappointed, because this isn't that, but it is another complexly woven and well told story from Uchikoshi, and I'm definitely enjoying being along for the ride.

It's just the same really. The conversion seems to have been done by using Unity, so it's very likely to be out on a lot of other platforms in due course.

I'd agree with most of this, although I definitely wouldn't put ARMS anywhere on this list (despite it being quite good), nor Xenoblade 2 (despite enjoying it a lot in spite of its many, many, many problems). They're good in their own quirky ways, but not games you should be buying first on a console with so many quality games.

Best games imo are Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, Astral Chain, Link's Awakening, and Mario Maker 2. Smash Bros: Ultimate and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, if you have friends to play couch multiplayer.

Breath of the Wild is a masterpiece and the one game I'd push even to people who weren't traditionally fans of the series/genre.

Indie games; I'd also add Celeste, Binding of Issac, Steam World Dig 2, Ape Out , Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, and the excellent (albeit hard in later stages) couch co-op game Overcooked to Bosto's list, if you haven't already played them elsewhere.

Totally agree with you. There aren't that many offline single player only bangers but the ones which bang bang hard. Nobody needs XC2 or ARMS (even less so), I agree. I love the latter but online is basically dead/high level only. That said, I'd say they occupy their spaces in those specific lists pretty well.

Good list but wouldn't advice Xenoblade. Big disappointment imo. I would swap that for Mario and the Rabbids. That game was great.

I thought Mario and Rabbids was great. Fun turn based Xcom light game. Definitely worth playing imo.

No. Both series have seriously gone off the boil since they were taken over by new, external development studios. They've effectively become lazy, low-content filler titles to drop in quiet periods between the bigger, highly polished titles that everyone likes and remembers.

They're Nintendo at their most complacent and unambitious. Paper Mario is another example, sadly.

Actually, that's slightly unfair on the Paper Mario games. I get the impression the problems with that series are a creative choice to make them more accessible, whereas The Mario Tennis and Mario Party games have just become filler tiles Nintendo intends to be cheap, content lite and quick to develop.

I'll never understand this commonplace notion about Paper Mario. The latter two games in the series are increasingly creative in their gameplay, presenting scenarios more akin to computer adventure games. Unlike the first two, the worlds actually reward exploration and don't give up their secrets without a fight, making them two of the most enjoyable Mario games I've ever played (and in the top three games on their respective systems). The way the stages and their challenges unfold is a constant joy to me.

That's not to say that I don't care for Thousand Year Door to an extent, but I'd trade it in happily for Sticker Star or Colour Splash any old day.

Edit: great, you've walked it back a bit. lol.
