I really like it. I like that I can spend five minutes playing it and still come away with a moon or two, even if they're silly ones. I don't find myself wandering around aimlessly because there's always either the markers on the map or the parrot hints to give me an idea of where to look. I don't really have an issue with the varying quality of the different worlds, even though I can see why folk might be unhappy. Don't even see buying them from the shop as an issue because I just don't buy them.

I can see why people might not like it as much. But then, Sunshine was one of my favourites and everyone hates that. :)

Hmmm. I'm glad you're enjoying it, and it's certainly fun, but I'm not convinced any more that this is really a top tier Mario game.  The post-game is so... bitty.  I'm kind of bumbling around the worlds at random, stomping stuff and trying to interact with everything; sometimes this gives me loads of moons and sometimes I'm just wandering around not achieving very much.  There's no focus to any of it - some of the moons are really interesting platforming challenges and others are given to you for the most ridiculous, pointless things.  And the worlds vary massively in design and quality.  And it appears you can buy as many moons as you want from the in-game shops, which makes the whole thing feel rather pointless. ALSO anything involving the Broodals can fuck right off.

I like the game, but it would have much better with a bit more quality control - make those worlds more consistent, cut out the dozens or hundreds of pointless throwaway moons and give the thing some actual focus.

Additional PLAY:

Super Mario Odyssey - Gone back to this, currently up to roughly 670 moons. Running the levels again, starting to become obvious how much I must have overlooked before... I mean, I thought I'd been pretty thorough on finding stuff but it seems there's loads I didn't get first time round, even before you factor in the stuff that gets added *after* you finish the game. And some of it's so obvious! Learning new things all the time too, like new ways to make jumps that don't look achievable, so that's great. What a game.

Well, that all runs very nicely. Really does show just how much shit there was on PSOne as well... some of those games are shocking.

I give it a month until that gets pulled down. If that.  :lol:

I've been playing Thimbleweed Park and it's glorious.  As an exercise in nostalgia it's remarkably specific - it's a very deliberate recreation of the golden age of Lucasfilm, but there were only ever about half a dozen games really made like this and no other company ever really got the knack - and even then it's a kind of composite of memories, with the graphical style of Maniac Mansion but the complexity of later games such as Monkey Island 2 or Day of the Tentacle. But bloody hell it's good. I'd forgotten how much fun these games actually are, with loads of avenues to go down and dead ends and actual, proper, difficult puzzles.  Genuinely they don't make them like this any more. I'm very glad they did, just this once.

I only start Dark Souls last year (well end of 2016) and loved it but drifted away, I can defo see myself fancying playing it on the Switch, little 15-60 min blasts would be perfect. Now that I've realised my phone lead is actually the same lead as the Switch I've put the Dock thing away as it just doesn't get used, so getting to finally finish Dark Souls would be ideal.

praise the sun.

It’s just a bit frustrating that (a) there’s nothing on the horizon that I actually want to buy for the Switch and (b) it’s the first Nintendo console for generations that hasn’t had backward compatibility with the previous gen so OF COURSE their plan is “release all the same games again at full price”.

Even with stuff that’s been remastered properly (such as Dark Souls) I’m going to buy it in 4K/HDR on the PS4, thanks. Well, actually I’m not, because if I wanted to play it I’d have done so in 2013, but the point still stands.
