it's all canon
Yeah I couldn't really get into it either, but it was pretty groundbreaking back in the day to have a dialogue & rpg mario game, plus paving the way for its branching spinoff sequels.
You can use a Pro Controller for ARMS, or both Joy-Cons if you don’t want motion controls.Snake Pass
First play. It's very innovative! I've never played a game like this before- it gives very believable snake physics. The art is pretty and cute too. The emotes are fun but redundant like it's really only 4 emotes each with multiple intensities, that just tells me the designers couldn't decide on the intensity themselves, but eh it's fun.
First play. Everything about this game is stunning except that I can't turn off motion control. I know, it was made for the gimmick of motion control.. but I still it should have the option to opt out, considering how full content the game is. The closest I can get is using the combined controller mode but I believe that still requires you to move your hands for the fighter to walk (correct me if I'm wrong)
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
Coming back from hiatus on this. Previously I had only rented it, now I have bought a digital copy... which of course means I have to start from the beginning, but I didn't get too far in the rental anyways so it's no biggie.
The Legend of Zelda
First play, first game of the franchise. It's fun, I'm playing it on my 2DS, I'm assuming they retained NES's bad translations.
First play. First of the series I think. So far I fought Glass Joe, this game's really good for the NES (I'm playing it on the 2ds), I thought it was pretty funny that on Round 2 Little Mac is being pep talked while Glass Joe is accidentally giving away his weakness.
I agree. When I first touched the game I was expecting something similar to later RPGs, but at the end of the day the game had very dull aestethics and, while the story is not bad, is inferior to those of Mario & Luigi games. The fact the game never arrived in Europe till 2008 definitely did not help. It's not a bad game per se - it has some great music, like Nimbus Land - it's just outdated in every sense.Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Started the game for the first time and got up to and beat Mack.
Personally I'm finding it pretty average so far. It has the resemblance to Paper Mario 64 and is a clear predecessor to that game and the Mario RPGs as a whole. But within that formula pretty much all elements are the least positive of the Mario RPGs I've played. The graphics are definitely bad, coming from the SNES and unlike games such as Super Mario World, and Superstar Saga, the low quality doesn't really work very well or is like a "bad in a good way", it's just bad. The music is fine I guess but it could never hold a candle to the others I've played so far. The gameplay is quite like the others but it's very primitive compared to even Paper Mario 64 and Superstar Saga, and I'm not too much a fan of this battle system, it's much too hard and not very interesting. I was really not impressed when the game opened with Peach getting kidnapped yet again but once the original villains were introduced, that was good - at least the game has a few original characters including original villains. But again, the other Mario RPGs had far superior stories and a much wider selection of likeable characters in my opinion.
I'm still playing through and hoping the game gets better, but thus far it's my least favourite Mario RPG by a wide margin.
