Just start Link's Awakening on the Switch.  Man, that is a great game.


In a lot of cases I feel that remasters are just quickly done just to cash in on nostalgia. However, with Linkís Awakening you can tell that there was so much time and care put into it. Graphically itís a pretty game but itís the music that really elevates it. Since itís release I play it every year.

Currently Iím playing Sackboy: A Big Adventure I think Iím about half way through it at this point, but Iím not really enjoying it. Thereís nothing functionality wrong with the game, it looks, sounds and most importantly plays well, it just doesnít do anything for me personally. Itís just going to be one of those games that you get through because youíve already invested some time and might as well make it to the credits. Hopefully my thoughts will change.

I totally agree with you.  Remakes are just pretty much cash cows but this one is great.  Also, the length of time before the original and when the remake is made makes a difference.

I currently have 5 out of 8 instruments.

Tried Tarraria on the Wii U but quit.  Those controls suck.  I've hooked the N64 back up and plan on starting Paper Mario.

Resident Evil Village - Obviously I was going to jump right into a new RE game. Parts of the game felt kind of disjointed and the end really goes off the rails, but I really enjoyed it overall. Not as good as 7 in my opinion, but people seem to be pretty mixed on which is better. Still a really solid game though.

Bravely Default II - I finally finished this with a very positive lasting impression overall. I thought the early parts of the game were a bit too formulaic which is an issue I tend to have with many of these retro-throwback RPGs, but they did a good job of breaking out of that mold later on. Great game!

Demon's Souls - I played the original DS back on PS3 when it was new, but I don't remember much about it and was kind of lukewarm on it at the time. After having played and enjoyed Dark Souls and Bloodborne, I've been interested in going back to this game and have finally done so with the PS5 remake. I'm really enjoying it for the most part, although there are some really frustrating sections that feel pretty poorly designed. I think they improved on many of these aspects with the sequels/successors. Despite any frustrations though, I still find it to be very addicting.

Returnal - I got this at the same time as DS thanks to a renewed GameFly subscription, so I haven't really put any time into this yet. I started the game just to get a feel for it, and it seems interesting so far. The gameplay feels good, and the world/map design is what I would imagine a darker or more realistic version of Metroid Prime would look like. Probably not going to put much time into this until I finish DS, but I'm looking forward to diving into it.

Breath of Fire III - I rented this game a couple of times as a kid and always remembered it fondly, but I've never gone back and given it a proper playthrough. I was itching to play through a PS1 RPG and this one was really calling out to me. I've got several hours into and am really enjoying it. I always remember as a kid that I really enjoyed the opening sections but would always lose interest later on for some reason, but now I'm having the opposite reaction. I felt like the beginning parts were kind of dull and have been more engaged with the later parts. There's some hidden depth to the game that I probably wasn't aware of before, like being able to learn enemy abilities and set party formations. I'm really glad to finally get around to this game after all this time.

Iíve been on a real Resident Evil kick lately. I played through Resident Evil: Village a couple weeks ago and just had such a great time that I started picking up the other newer games/remakes. I beat Resident Evil 2 playing through Leonís 1st run and then playing Claireís 2nd run to get the true ending of the game. Now Iím playing Resident Evil 3 and am having such a great time. I feel kinda bad that I never really dove into this series, except for playing parts of Resident Evil 4 many years ago. I have some other games from the series that I want to start playing and Iím definitely going to pick up some more games.
