Twilight Princess definitely picked up at the Goron mines. The way they gave a standard item (iron boots) a fresh twist was really impressive, and I always thought climbing the walls and ceilings with it looked so cool. Like the first dungeon, the boss was definitely the highlight. It had the same eye weak point trope, but instead of just using the item you required you had multiple steps requiring multiple items to defeat him. Again, this made it feel fresh.

I will have to slow down with Zelda though. Beat 2 games recently, and am playing 4 at once now. Kind of overloaded with them. I guess I'll just play one of them for 1-2 hours a day until my peaked interest in them returns. That will hopefully happen after playing some different games.

Just finished Tomb Raider on PS1, and I'm now playing Super Mario Land on Game Boy. Dang this is quite the simple and short Mario game.... I already beat it and I just started it lol. I'm doing the "expert mode" now. Fun for what it is I suppose... ultra catchy music too.

I hated Tomb Raider when I first starting playing it TBH; it just felt really archaic going back in terms of wrestling with the controls. By the time I got to the end though, I ended up loving the game. The exploration and foreboding atmosphere is fantastic IMO.

Started a new fantastic game today called Moonstone: A Hard Days Knight. I know it's a meme, but it really is the Demon's Souls of the early 90s.

Currently I'm playing Pokemon and super smash bros ultimate.

The training to become a master will be long :)

Is there any point playing Map 2 of BS Legend of Zelda? I feel like it might overstay its welcome since I assume the only difference is the location of stuff, and maybe different dungeon layouts.

Yeah. It’s basically a second quest. I played both, but it’s really more of the same.

Sounds good. I'll play it but after a few weeks so it won't feel too repetitive.

Started Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004, and it's actually kind of awesome. The controls are in-depth, yet accessible. I was impressed with how fluid they still are. Putting and chipping definitely has a learning curve though. It's also so much of a product of its time. When you do a good shot they try to make it cinematic, or even epic, and it just looks so funny now. The intro has DMX ffs.

Playing a lot of stuff right now:

1. Pandoras tower (wii): this was recommended by prfsnl_gamer some time ago and I finally got around to picking it up and playing it, I just beat the first boss and so far I absolutely love it, great atmosphere, interesting story, and good use of the wii mote, definitely an under the radar hack n slash worth playing

2. Super Mario 3d world: got a wii u a few weeks ago and have been dying to play this, beat the first world last night, it is as awesome as I hoped, I can't play it without my wife since she loves watching me play through mario games so I won't be able to blaze through this as quick as I liked

3. Bladed Fury (steam): really good 2d hack n slash, reminenscent of muramasa on the wii, made it to the final boss last night and will finish it soon, great game

4. Pankapu (switch): cool 2d platformer with some interesting costume change mechanics, reminds me a bit of the mickey mouse games on SNES in how different costumes give you different abilities and can be changed on the fly.

5. El Shaddai (xbox 360) Hyper weird, trippy game that is one part devil may cry and one part 2d platformer, interesting so far.
