What game did you last play?!?!?!?

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
Location: Central Somnom Woods, Temple Puzzle North-East Path
I decided to use a Gold Risk Effect for funsies in a Boomerang Bro battle, it KO'd everyone but Mario whom was protected by Guard Shell DX.
Do combo KO's result in more gifts? I was rewarded a Taunt Ball and Master Gloves from that fight. Master Gloves replenish all your used BP if you pull an excellent, I wish they were a Treasure instead of Gloves because I'm keeping my Gift DX and Coin Bros DX gloves on.
At the end of the North-East Path awaits Nomons who Starlow convinces them to play a game with the Bros to win their 2 Pi'illos (not Masters). It's a ball hop through the rings game with 3 challenges. I had difficulty figuring out the second challenge and was left with 2 HP left on the third challenge, and failed... Ah well.. will come back to it another day.

I WANT TO NOTE: Nomons heavily remind me of Goosebumps The Beast From The East. They're purple mole like creatures with big claws, live deep in a forest, and just want to play silly games. Although I think in Goosebumps your life is at risk or something.

Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition
Like I'm doing with Pac-Man in Smash Bros, I'll be playing Ryu on Easiest of every mode, to get a feel for the game. Today I did Arcade with his Metsu Hadoken Ultra. I tried to learn what each of his attacks are, but they seem to mildly switch up upon if the opponent is near or far, making it a little more difficult to really grasp. So far I have it down for far away opponent.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Didn't do much but I'm currently stuck on the Belome Temple.

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

Beat a couple more levels, I still haven't unlocked any characters besides Batman and Robin but when I do that'll be cool.

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

Bought (well it was free actually but I'd been putting it off due to needing to enter credentials) the Superheroines pack meaning I now own Starfire and Raven in this game, and that's pretty cool cause I now have all five Teen Titans in this game (Robin and Cyborg are necessarily unlocked through the main story and Beast Boy can be unlocked without DLC.)

Entered the north path of Somnoms Temple Puzzle, and the bros took the elevator to the top and fought Pi'illodium.
Most. Difficult. Opponent. Yet.
The first time playing this game that I almost Game Over'd. But did pull through and beat Pi'illodium on my first try.
Though I still don't understand how to dodge their lazer attack, the blasts seemed to not match the indicators when they charged up, AND, it was A LOT to memorize. That and it took me halfway through the fight to figure out how to counter their hammer attack.
Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
Now with Pi'illodium defeated, the bros have entered Zeekeeper's dream point atop the temple. Leading them to a giant tree to climb in Dreamy Somnom Woods, and meeting Bedsmith there, is it really Bedsmith or Luigi's subconscious? For I do not know. Regardless, the bros have begun their dreamy tree climbing journey.. sort of.
I decided to investigate the dream point entrance because I noticed the fake wall made of leaves on the map. It took the bros underground below the tree, to a puzzle reminiscent of SMB castle puzzles of needing to go forward on the correct platforms. As the sign suggests, if the bros take the platforms with Pellicrumps, they get to the treasure room.. which just had a max nut.., then the coin platforms lead to the secret exit, or should I say entrance - to above ground on the east side of the tree. We hit the ! block and it had a new branch grow out of the tree on the west side as a shortcut so that the bros won't need to go underground again. Dreamy Bedsmith hits on the bros again, and suggested taking a break before climbing more. I took Bedsmiths advice, I forget what pronouns Bedsmith has. Ah well.

Using the power of Luiginary Ball and Luiginary Windmill, the bros climb to the top of Dreamy Somnom Woods Giant Tree. Bedsmith hits on Dreambert again and gets rejected again.. ehh ngl I'm kinda tired of that Alphadream's running gag.
It's weird how that's a trope in media, like, IRL it's usually straight ppl harassing people like that, not gay folk.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Got it yesterday on the GameCube. Beat Chapter 1 and 2, and I'm currently progressing through 3. So far it's excellent: the characters are varied and full of charm, the battle mechanics are fun and improved from 64, and the dungeon design is quite good. My main issue is with the backtracking, which is a bit excessive.

The bros cracked the egg and..
GIANT BATTLED THE ZEEKEEPER!
Luigi's experience catching chickens back in Mario Party 3 has paid off.
The Zeekeeper turned out to be a total self absorbed egomaniac wanting 80million coins for the job to help break the castle barrier, everyone tricked him into believing they would pay, and he's up for the job!
Oh my god Mario's face every time he was surprised at Zeekeeper's personality and desires, was priceless!
Defeating the Zeekeeper earned the bros a pair of Energy Pants, I'll have to see what's that about tomorrow.

The bros meet Zeekeeper at the entrance of Somnom, hitch a ride on his back as he blasts the barrier of Neo Bowser Castle, resulting in the castle losing its ability to fly and crashing symmetrically from Bimport on the mysterious question mark shaped land.
The bros. do some shopping at the very brave Shelltop's shellhutch opened at the entrance of Neo Bowser Castle, and plan to attempt remaining sidequests before entering the castle.

I finally got around to completing the final stage of the tutorial, where it makes me actually think on my own to win. Yayy now i can start building my own deck!

Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition
Having trouble against Chun Li and Juri. They block so much and even deflect throws. I beat Chun Li, Juri was too good. But I learned a trick from her to use next time, and that is there's 2 blocks, neutral & down, I can strike where they're not blocking!

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

Oh my goodness what a relief to go from SMRPG to this. I truly admire this game, in the very first moments the story had drawn me in and the next 2 hours did not disappoint me in the slightest. This has been the game I've been looking forward to playing the most ever since I beat Paper Mario 64 last summer and it fully lived up to how great I thought it'd be. It feels like it takes everything I've loved about the first three games in the series and puts it together really well.

Story is pretty great so far, possibly my favourite in the series so far (but obviously when you include Paper Mario, SPM and TTYD are still my favourite stories so far.) The graphics are pretty good but I'd not say hugely beautiful - the 3DS provides far greater graphical quality than any of the first three M&Ls but does still have a little fuzziness and doesn't compare to CS or TOK - as for SPM and TTYD I like those games' visuals in a very different way so I'd find those two hard to compare to DT's artstyle directly. The familiar overworld gameplay is back again and the Dream World stuff is pretty cool but so far I think the babies and Bowser from the two previous games are still better, maybe my opinion on that will change later. It's awesome to finally control the Bros. using more fully circular motion albeit I was a little disappointed about the lack of a "move slow by tilting slightly" option like in many games. The battle system is as great as ever if not even better, the Dream World battles are especially fun. And the music is phenomenal (though I've grown a bit tired of the Pi'illo castle theme by now) and the fact that the Dream World music is like a remix of the real world music is kinda similar to what happened in Bowser's Inside Story when music played in Bowser's Body.

Overall as I'm still in the very early stages of my first playthrough of this game I can't decide quite yet where this game ranks compared to the other M&Ls (probably will end up being either my favourite or a close second to Bowser's Inside Story) or to the first three PMs (looks like between PM64 and TTYD) but in its own right I undeniably and passionately love this game.

I believe recalling part of why AlphaDream stopped being a thing was because they couldn't keep up with new console graphic demand.

Eventually you'll be able to have one bro hold the other and walk. Also when Mario's digging under ground Luigi slow runs but without sfx.

The OST's are going to drive you mad as you progress.

The bros check on the inhabitants near Blimport to see if they're reacting to the castle crash. Some of them mentioned feeling an earthquake, and being relieved of not seeing the castle in the sky anymore. One was wondering what the castle's mental problem is for incinerating the islands and then crashing.

Mario Kart Tour
I cleared the 50cc Firebro Cup with Wendy and Dry Bones. I'm raising my lowest point selections as a 'leave no Mario behind' sort of thing. So with the courses, T must mean Tour and R must mean Super, yeah? I like when we have a selection of remixes for one location, it's refreshing.

Don't judge me.

Okay but seriously there is an ulterior motive for me to be playing the game.



I'm making a Smash style stage out of it for Rivals of Aether, so I'm ripping assets from it.



stage props i've ripped so far, the parrotfish will be a slow moving platform that travels across, the shark will be a background element.

Now kids, if you look out to your left, you'll see deep undersea life yet known to man.

The bros train up at the Battle Ring before their Neo Bowser Castle showdown. I beat Elite Trio X mostly with Luigi Typhoon and Luigi Ball. Then I unsurprisingly lose to Pi'illodium X as their little minions keep healing them more than I can strike.

im positng here for once because i wanted to gush about bopopolis in tropical freeze. now that i know i have to hold b a little before landing on the enemy for a higher jump its actually INSANELY satisfying and fun omg this may be my faovirte level now. im so sorry bopopolis i wrongfully dissed you earlier because the enemy big jump timing is weird
i especially liked how by the end you start getting lives with each jump because of how many enemies youve jumped on and also i liked how the music changed at the very end to match dk island swing. i can admit its really cool even though i may be tired of dkc1 references
oh yeah i beat the first temple level too it wasnt that bad actually. so with this i no longer fear the temples
Now trying to get the secret exit in frozen frenzy has been. a less positive experience. it would be nice if mario wiki had literally anything on how to unlock 6-a (it doesnt even say its through frozen frenzy) so i didnt have to ask people about it and then feel bad and embarrased

i also played mario sunshine earlier. tried to cheese the goopy inferno and still suffered. the rest went fine enough, i have the 7th shine on every course now so next up is the final level sometime soonish, but i also just absolutely Felt this line

the goopy inferno did happen to make me cry . as did many other things in this game. im very conflicted on sunshine i love the world and dialogue but its also frustrating SO often

tldr of the whole post: bopopolis slaps

I know my old save isn't technically gone per se as my old SSD is still functional but it's not worth going through the trouble of getting it just for the save. So...I have to replay this game from the start.

There's absolutely no way in hell I'm playing 4S again, so when I complete the game, I'll redo all levels except for 4S, and then just cheat for 100% completion.
