Nester the Lark, nocturnal YL


Nester the Lark: Having gone from Fire Emblem: Three Houses to Engage, it's still a little strange to hear Byleth speaking in full dialog. Nov 6, 2023 16:25:31 GMT -5 *
nocturnal YL: Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is like that too. Maybe even weirder, since Byleth is speaking in Three House's setting. Nov 7, 2023 10:01:05 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Something I don't like about Engage is that there is no universal save data. Everything is tied to individual save files. There's also no "new game+", so you always have to start from scratch if you replay the game. Nov 7, 2023 10:22:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Been watching WarioWare: Move It! gameplay lately. It's essentially a sequel to Smooth Moves with a bigger focus on multiplayer, and is structured very similar to Smooth Moves. Nov 12, 2023 10:47:20 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure if I'll (eventually) get it though; it requires functional Joy-Cons with working SL and SR buttons, which I don't have. Nov 12, 2023 10:48:04 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: It's still weird to see things like Doug Bowser wishing Xbox a happy birthday. Nov 15, 2023 21:01:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Almost at the end of Ciel nosurge DX. It's practically impossible to hear all of Ion's voiced lines. That's a lot of effort spent on a single game. I do like this game, but it could have been much better. It's one of the more shocking games I've played. Nov 16, 2023 12:33:49 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't think short comments like this can ever fully convey my feelings with this game. The story is very surreal, and I have a lot to say, both good and bad, about the dating sim aspect of the game. Nov 16, 2023 12:36:51 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: …Drat, I lost a few days of captured game footage thanks to my HDMI recorder corrupting the microSD card's filesystem. Nov 16, 2023 13:41:01 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I just realised that I haven't made a proper post for more than a month. I was either busy at work and thus didn't want to make long posts, or I was busy playing… well, you know. Time spent on playing games is time not spent on talking about games. Nov 19, 2023 12:14:24 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I was thinking how I considered the original Donkey Kong Country to be a generic Super Mario Bros clone with fancy graphics, but SMB Wonder only just caught up to the level of quality that DKC Tropical Freeze gave us almost a decade ago. Nov 20, 2023 14:57:21 GMT -5 *
nocturnal YL: This is surprising. I see DKC as the least Mario-like platformer to feature a Mario character. The Wario Land games still feature Mario-style blocks and pipes, for example, while DKC lacks many Mario elements. Nov 21, 2023 8:16:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: True that DKC lacks a lot of specific Mario-like details, but it has the basic gameplay in that you run, jump, and defeat enemies by landing on them. I didn't see it as having much more than this, thus why I considered it generic. Nov 21, 2023 9:27:07 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: Yeah, psychologically there is a 'first example' thing. When something new is released and is thought to be innovative, and becomes popular it can lead to comparing newer games to be like it (so we have newer genres like "Metroidvania"). Nov 24, 2023 18:28:16 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: I find it interesting with platformers, it's less often that we regard platform games after Mario as "Mario-like". On this note, I also find it interesting how certain genres are treated differently. Nov 24, 2023 18:29:32 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: In addition to the "platform" (rather than Mario-like) and Metroidvania examples (incidentally there were games like Metroid and Castlevania before their release), some games are seen as "rip-offs" if people think they're too similar. Nov 24, 2023 18:31:26 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: An example is how some people treat Fossil Fighters, Robopon, Yo-Kai Watch as Pokémon 'rip-offs' or clones, and the 'monster-battling' genre is often seen as less 'mainstream' than something like 'platformer'. Nov 24, 2023 18:32:39 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: Also on that note, often people on databases, wikis, etc. stick to only a few genre labels like "platform", "arcade", "fighting", "racing" etc. but there are many more ways to describe a game. Nov 24, 2023 18:35:03 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: The developers may choose to advertise their game using their own genre, so for instance Starfy was given the label "marine action" in Japan rather than "platformer". I think in essence these don't exist in isolation though. Nov 24, 2023 18:36:28 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: It also reminds me of how there was apparently a debate on whether NES The Legend of Zelda is an adventure game or RPG (or something like that). Nov 24, 2023 18:37:27 GMT -5
