No foolin’! I played games in March!
~ Game Over ~
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES) – Done and dusted. Always a great time, and even that danged Ice Palace wasn’t nearly as bad as I remember it.
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64) – I can’t think of anything meaningful to say about this game in two lines. How about you go read this much bigger thing I wrote about it?
Kirby: Star Allies (Switch) – I might not have played this if not for a change to the My Nintendo program right before release that allowed a nice big discount on the purchase.
Knack (PS4) – I tried to be positive about it for a long time, but by Chapter Nine I was fully willing to admit that I hate it. Yet I powered through to the end anyway. What is wrong with me?
~ Now Playing ~
Piczle Lines DX (Switch) – A new update added 60 more puzzles for free, ensuring that I will never, ever finish this game. (And then later in the month they added 20 more!)
Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch) – Started a new game on Master Mode, which is brutal. Swapping in tougher enemies is one thing, but giving them regenerating HP is just mean.
Monster Hunter World (PS4) – I’ve mostly been distracted by Breath of the Wild, but took some time away from Hyrule to hunt a few Deviljhos.
Yoshi’s Island (SNES) – While I do regard this as one of the greatest games ever made, it still bothers me that Yoshi’s movement is so slippery. I hate not being sure where I’m going to land.
Part-Time UFO (iOS) – The cutest little physics game, where you use a UFO’s crane to stack objects. It may be the most fun I’ve had playing a game on my phone. And no microtransactions!
Vostok Inc. (Switch) – I really only played the demo (for several hours), but this appears to be the ultimate expression of Cookie Clicker, with a sweet twin-stick shooter layered on top.
Into the Breach (PC) – Tactical RPG (which I love) flavoured with roguelike elements (which I dislike). Haven’t played a lot yet, but so far it seems like it works pretty darn well.
Bayonetta (Switch) – I like mostly everything about this game, except: I’m not having any fun. It’s ridiculously difficult in the way that it demands frame-perfect reflexes. I’m much too old for that.
Outlast (Switch) – A spook-em-up where the order of the day is jumpscares by the boatload. Which makes me wonder why I bought this, because I cannot deal with jumpscares.
