        Yes, they occasionally make good movies. But for every good movie made, they make a dozen cash grabs, consisting of shitty live action remakes and sequels. In fact, I was excited for Frozen 2 before, but after seeing Toy Story 4, I’m starting to have second thoughts

        Disney + was the last straw. At least before I could see a movie made by them that looked bad without directly supporting them (if it was on netflix). Now, I have to pay for a separate streaming service to do even that

        Also, that next DLC fighter for Smash is a garbage choice. He’s not from a critically acclaimed modern classic like Joker, he has no legacy like Hero, and he’s not a fan favorite like Banjo. Nobody I’ve talked to even knew who he was

        The “final announcement” was a Xenoblade 1 remake on switch, which was underwhelming, but probably the highlight of the direct. I was considering checking out the series and I heard that 1 is better than 2 in almost every wai, so I’ll pick it up eventually

        Now, let’s talk about the “balancing” factor, MP, which I’ll just call mana because it sounds better. You’ll run out of mana quick, but the thing is, mana is very easy to regenerate. It regenerates at a rate of 1 per second, and you get mana back per damage you deal.

        Now, circling around to what I think of him: I personally think he’s badly designed and OP. But the thing is, no matter how you feel about the balance of the character, I think the badly designed part is objective. RNG is such a bullshit concept in video games. I’ve never seen any game make it work, and Smash is no exception.

        I think I’m taking a break from smash online for a little while. Maybe its just because I haven’t learned how to fight him yet, but Hero made the game less fun for me. I’d prefer a complete overhaul of the character, but even some nerfs would be appreciated

    Minecraft:
    I was the 30th person to accomplish getting level 100 jeweling. That’s just about the only accomplishment I have...

    Also, if any of y'all are thinking of crucifying me, don't. I never played bayo in smash 4, not even I would cause that much suffering to others. I only picked her up in ultimate because she looked fun, and I guess she's my new main.


    So... I may be "gone", but not completely. I still check up every week or so to see how things are doing. Don't worry, for all 4 of you that miss me, my legacy will carry on!

    ...

    Do I have a legacy?


    Anyway, since I like talking about stuff, let me talk about video games, one of mine and many other's main interests. My favorite genre is action-adventure/RPG. See, my ideal game genre is something like Legend of Zelda, which I like due to the exploration aspect. Most (J)RPGs have this, which is why I include them. Plus, I like story and character development, which RPGs provide.

    Least favorite is 2d platformer/metroidvania. I group them together because they're very similar genres, but for completely different reasons. 2d platformer because I find most of them to be samey and bland. The only platformer that I can say I loved is Celeste, and I still haven't finished it yet. Metroidvania because I HATE not knowing where to go in video games. Level design in these games are often very confusing and involve backtracking. I'm one of those people that need some kind of direction, some sort of given objective, which these kinds of games don't tell you.

    Favorite company/developer is Nintendo. I was never really into the gritty and realistic graphics that PS4/Xbox games have, and prefer the colorful and cartoony artsyles that Ninty has.

    Speaking of which... You people like Nintendo like me, right? Either way, I'll be reviewing every game I have on the Switch, even though no one asked for it. (I'll only be doing first-party exclusives, so don't @ me when you don't see Cuphead on here.) Here we go!

    Splatoon 2
    This is a phenomenal game, and easily the best console online experience I've had. This is the only shooter I ever got into, and from the people I've talked to, I'm not alone on that. The singleplayer campaign, while short, is fun and designed to be played over and over again, and is mostly run and gun. While I've kinda gotten bored of Turf War, and 2/4 of the ranked modes are ass, in my opinion, Salmon Run is worth the $60 price tag and $20 online subscription alone. I main the Dualies for anyone wondering. 9/10.

    Smash Bros. Ultimate
    Tbh, I don't think this game is as good as everyone says it is. I never found the "Everyone is here" thing to be as big of a deal as everyone made it out to be, and besides, there is a severe lack of content. I mean, you have Adventure mode, getting the rest of the spirits, classic mode, challenges, online, and that's about it. Brawl had all of that and more. Don't get me wrong, the physics are better than they've ever been, and the character balance is impressive, but why am I supposed to care about that when I don't play competitively and I don't have friends to play it with? Subjectively, 7/10, but objectively, that's too harsh. 8/10.

    EDIT: Wow, I'm an idiot, let me word this better.

    Okay, so, as a concept, I love Smash. A fighting game that uses iconic video game characters as fighters, not to mention the immense fanservice? Yes please! The character roster and balance is impressive too. Almost 80 fighters and they're all viable? The physics are perfect as well. Unfortunately, why should I care about gameplay if there's no content to play? It's not even that the singleplayer content is bad, it's just repetitive. Spirit battles are nice, but that's the whole singleplayer. Everything else feels like a distraction instead of actual content;multiman smash, home run contest, etc. The online is shit too, soooooo

    Let's Go Eevee (and Pikachu)
    Overall, solid game. This is my first time experiencing Kanto (other than in HGSS, but the Johto games take all the fun parts out, like Pokemon Tower). The motion controls minigame was a fun twist on the system and reminded me of Wii bowling. My only complaint with it is that you can't weaken Pokemon to catch them easier. It is simplified and meant for casuals, but all in all, that's okay. I started playing this with my dad (Who's only ever played Wii sports and Mario Kart before) and it's crazy how complex Pokemon can seem to people who've never played it before. It is short and lacking content though, as most casual games tend to be. 7/10.

    Super Mario Odyssey
    Again, I think this has more to do with me subjectively disliking the genre rather than the game itself. This is a game about collecting, just like N64 classics. I wish they kept the Galaxy style, but eh. Let me explain why I don't like this genre. In BOTW, to most people, korok seed collecting is the driest part. It's just a bunch of repetitive puzzles around the map, and there's way too many of them. In SMO, this is the whole game. Things are spiced up a bit by varying the methods of Power Moon collecting, but at the end of the day, you're doing the same thing. The main story mode is also very short and easy. 7.5/10.

    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
    I wish they did a Mario Kart 9 instead, but whatever. This is one of the finest racing games I've ever played, though I wish you could turn items off in Grand Prix mode. It's a great game for casuals and competitive players alike, since it's easy to learn and hard to master. Only thing I dislike about this game other than the item system is that some kart parts and characters are objectively better than others, meaning that there's a meta now and lowkey ruined what made MK fun. Ok, maybe not, but that still bothers me. 8/10.

    Mario Maker 2
    I don't find this to be a good game per say, but more like an excellent tool. It's fun to see the creative level designs that people come up with. This is one of those games that's fun to pop in for an hour very couple days, and then put away. For what it is, 8/10, but again, it's something that I don't particularly enjoy.

    New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
    This game is bad, don't buy it

    Okay, that's not true. To be fair, the levels are designed very well, and it does make some improvements to the New Super Mario Bros. formula. However, it's not enough to save how bland this game feels. It has a generic artstyle, generic level design, generic powerups, etc. I started playing this and haven't finished it yet, which should say something since it's also a really short game. Also, were they so out of ideas for a NSMB game that they had to port over this? I'm honestly getting sick of Wii U ports either being games that no one asked for (Pokken Tournament, Hyrule Warriors) or games that have the same formula (like this). I'm sure a lot of people would actually buy a Pikmin 3 or Super Mario 3d World port. Back to the game, 6/10.

    EDIT: I beat the base game and New Super Luigi U. Unless you're looking to do everything, which includes collecting everything, getting all the secret levels, and doing all the challenges, this is not worth 60 bucks, the base game is so short and Luigi U is even shorter. Honestly, I don't recommend this game at all and if you really need 2d Mario, get Mario Maker.

    And finally...
    Breath. Of. The. Fucking. Wild
    Oh my god. I feel bad about saying how good this game is because everyone's gushed about it enough already, so let me tell you an anecdote instead. When I first got the game, I didn't like it. I had to force myself to put in the cartridge to even play it. Grinding shrines felt pointless since the enemies around me seemed so strong, and the game didn't seem to have much content besides that. My opinion of the game completely changed when I did my first divine beast. Suddenly, I felt empowered, like I could really do this and defeat Ganon, and went on a spree to free the other 3 beasts. That's when I did more shrines until I felt ready to march into Hyrule Castle and bring semi-peace to Hyrule. In between that was exploring the massive world of Hyrule and filling out my map. Even after beating it, this game has so much content that it's kinda unbelievable. I got this game almost 8 months ago as of writing this and I still haven't completed it 100%. Unlike Super Mario Odyssey, which turned me off from 100% completing it, BOTW made me want to complete it. As soon as I defeated Ganon, I wanted more. I haven't even touched the DLC yet, but I'll buy it one day, I swear.

    One of the main reasons why I love this game so much is because it handles not being handholdy extremely well. Yes, you are left to explore, but you're given objectives to do, and there is an overarching story that you're supposed to follow that the game intends you to do, but if you want, you can skip it and explore other regions. Unlike metroidvanias, I'm given a purpose to play the game.

    BOTW has flaws, don't get me wrong, but in terms of enjoyment, it's easily a 10/10 game. It may have noticeable flaws that don't make it a perfect game, but out of all of these Switch games, BOTW deserves it the most.

    EDIT: Well, I'm basically fresh out of things to do. Main story, areas discovered, shrines, and korok seeds are all completed 100%. I haven't gotten all the saddles yet, I haven't gotten Kilton's medals yet, and I haven't collected/enhanced all the armor yet. But honestly...I think I'm okay with what I've done so far. I'm a little burnt out on this game and I think I'll wait until I can get the DLC before seriously playing again.

    Those are all the games I have, more to come soon.

    Signature

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Bayonetta. The intense action is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of the engaging story. most of the action will go over a typical player's head. There's also Bayonetta's sassy outlook, which is deftly woven into her characterisation- her personal philosophy draws heavily from Japanese literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of this action, to realise that it's not just awesome, it say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence, people who dislike Bayonetta truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the meaning in Bayonetta's existential catchphrase "Avavago," which itself is a cryptic reference to what "Avavago" means in Enochian, "thunders". I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Hideki Kamiya's genius wit unfolds itself on their console screens. What fools.. how I pity them.

    And yes, by the way, i DO have a Gomorrah tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the true fans' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid
