Crash N.Sane Trilogy (Nintendo Switch)

First time experiencing Crash Bandicoot 1, the absents of certain moves introduced in later Crash games like the slide or body slam for example feels weird adjusting to. CURSE YOU, MUSCLE MEMORY!


Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (Nintendo Game Cube)

Taking a short break after delivering the coup de grace to the Alpha Blogg.

There are no characters that I genuinely dislike outside of maybe being slightly annoyed by Bowser Jr. when I was younger, but even then my opinion on him has improved over time.

I'm hoping the next mainline Kirby game uses sprites again instead of 3D models, imagine a Kirby game in the style of Wario Land Shake It! and Shantae Half-Genie Hero for example:

Of course Air Ride 2 would also be great too.

Didn't even realize today (or technically yesterday) was Valentine's Day until I checked my Switch's news section.

Love how they didn't even bother to photoshop out FLUDD's handle.

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (Nintendo Game Cube)

I got lost for a bit in the Torvus Bog when I resumed from my previous save, I forgot what I was doing but I was in Hydrodynamo Station with no way to progress forward due to the water hindering Samus' movement and no way to open the purple hatch at the bottom so I decided to backtrack back to the Torvus temple thinking that maybe I might've missed some important dialogue from that Luminoth guy's hologram. Apparently I missed a missile upgrade that allows me to locks onto multiple targets at once which is needed for the purple hatches and decided to backtrack back to the Temple Grounds to go grab it.

I returned to the Torvus Bog afterwards and made my way back to the Hydrodynamo Station, spent about twenty minutes progressing through it only to die to the Alpha Blogg after obtaining the Gravity Boost and was promptly booted back to my last save. I am thankful that I at least had the common sense to save when I returned to Torvus Bog so I didn't lose the Seeker Missiles (or else I would've been a LOT more frustrated), but still a little annoyed that I'll have to go through the Hydrodynamo Station again.

Granted, but then you wind up cursed by Paradise Island.

I wish for a Pikmin plush.

Wouldn't be too surprised if someone made a Luigia joke yet.

Last one. My game budget for this month had to go to getting my Wii U's Gamepad fixed (The right analogue stick on it went bad) so I was unable to purchase BiSDX, I'm planning on grabbing it on my birthday next month assuming nothing else happens between now and then.

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (Nintendo Game Cube)

After a few failed attempts, I beat the infamous Boost Guardian and got the Boost Ball back. The Inglets were honestly more of a nuisance than the the boss itself just because they kept getting in the way when I was trying to maneuver around the stage and dodge the Guardian's boost ball attack, but thankfully at least the last Save Station wasn't too far back so even if I died it wouldn't be that long of a trek to reach the boss again. (From what I've heard, the Spider Guardian isn't as generous in that regard so I better tread carefully when I reach it.)


Pokemon Rumble (Nintendo Wii)

First time experiencing this game outside of the demo version although I have played later entries in the series like Pokemon Rumble Blast and a little bit of Pokemon Rumble World beforehand. It's just as fun and addictive as the others although the main "story" is rather short and simple: Basically in a world of living toy Pokemon that still retain their ability to use moves and battle each other (but are unable to grow or level up from it) exists a tournament to determine who is the most powerful of the toy Pokemon. One day a lowly Rattata decides to sneak into the tournament through a gap between the gates but swiftly gets it's head handed to it in the Battle Royale just as quickly as it got in and is booted back out to the terminal before the gap between the gates close. (I guess it wasn't top percent enough.)

You then travel through six areas battling and befriending stronger Pokemon before challenging the tournament again, succeed and head to the B-rank tournament, travel through the same six areas again but with even stronger Pokemon to befriend this time, rinse and repeat until you reach the S-rank tournament where you eventually battle Mewtwo (who might I add, has a pretty sweet boss theme here) and become the champion of the Battle Royale. Roll credits.

Gotta say I felt a little bad for Rattata the moment I had to swap it out for a stronger 'mon, knowing that it was perpetually unable to grow stronger and that I was unlikely to use it again. :/
