Judgment - I've put much more time into this one, and the side content has picked up considerably after getting several hours in. Other than that, my thoughts are pretty much the same: good story but I'm not a big fan of Yagami's combat style.

Trials of Mana/Seiken Densetsu 3 - Since this game was just officially localized for the Switch, a friend of mine and I just started playing it and got a couple of hours in. I'm not really impressed so far. The combat feels pretty stiff, and the music so far isn't even remotely as good as Secret of Mana. The story is definitely more fleshed out than its predecessor, however.

I'm hoping that alot of these issues are dealt with in the upcoming remake.

Zelda Breath of the Wild - Wandering about looking for shrines and trouble.  Also kind of looking at the main quest, but not really.

I have to say that I am very impressed with Breath of the Wild so far.  I haven't had this much fun exploring a 3D world since the first time I played Morrowind on the OG Xbox (and then later on PC) and Skyrim.  I think a lot of it has to do with how wild the environment feels.  I really get a sense that for the most part this is a world that was desolated but is starting to get back to some civilization.  Much like in Skyrim, I love the little touches that appear in the world, like the wrecks of Guardians strewn about (what I like to imagine are ancient battlefields) and an area with a bunch of travelers claymores stuck in the ground (which I think of as a graveyard).  I also really love that the game world (and how to exist within it) aren't shoved down your throat from the beginning, so that somebody who walks around without talking to people (like me) often have no idea how basic things (like money) works.  Great game, and this is coming from somebody who really didn't like any of the 3D Zelda games (outside of Wind Waker).

I think that's what my favorite part of Breath of the Wild is too. The main quest is good and I like to make progress every now and then (I believe i have cleared three of the sacred beast's). But, I have the most fun just mucking about and doing whatever really.

Beat Life Is Strange a couple of weeks ago. Great story/novel style game, which starts out fairly normal and then becomes darker and darker. Highly recommended. I'm now playing the prequel/sequel "Before the Storm".

I played through Super Mario Land 2 for the Community Playthrough last night, and ended up doing it all in one sitting. First time doing that. The castle can be quite aggravating.

More Breath of the Wild.  I've wandered about, randomly kicking Bokoblin/Moblin butts and going through a lot of weapons.  Fortunately since I've freed Vah Ruta, the Divine Beast in Zora's Domain, I now have Lightscale Trident (and I am early enough in the game where it is relevant) which appears to be fixable (according to the guy in the weapon shop).  Anyone know if I actually have to bring back the weapon "badly damaged" or can I just treat it like every other "badly damaged" weapon and throw it, then get it reforged (from nothing?) in Zora's Domain?

I think Tuesday I am going to play through Super Mario Land 2 DX for the C-Playthrough.

A minor (but very annoying) setback with the NES Challenge.  I was very annoyed but at stage four of Treasure Master, but I lost power and lost progress.  This wasn't so terrible, except I have already forgotten how to progress up to that point, and to be quite frank a lot of the progress through Stage 3 was entirely due to bumbling.  I will be consulting an online "longplay" to help me from this point on.
