3D Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
This is my first time playing Shinobi 3 for more than 10 minutes or so, and it's pretty great.

The game feels a lot more fluid than previous Shinobi games, and you actually feel more like a steretypical ninja - you can run, drop kick, wall jump and swing from the ceiling - you're a lot more mobile than you have been before. It feels like there's more focus on being aggressive - run at your enemies and take them out before they attack - this is a real contrast to Revenge of Shinobi's very deliberate and careful pace. Is it better? ...No, not really. Is it worse? Definitely not. What it is is different, and I appreciate that in a series.

The difficulty of the game is much easier too - your extra mobility makes a lot of Shinobi's platforming challenges much simpler - that'd not to say they can't cause you some issues, but there's nothing like those pixel perfect leaps and double jumps over the water in the docks level of Revenge of Shinobi.

The 3D stuff in this one is cool. but seems kinda superfluous to be honest. This is a great game and you tend to zone out and forget it's in 3D at all. It's very nice looking and nice to see the effect in a longer game, but not a defining feature.

The music in the game is pretty good too, but I found it to be less memorable than in Revenge of Shinobi. I don't think this one was composed by Yuzo Koshiro, and I think it's fairly noticeable, but they music certainly isn't bad.

I'm hard pressed to decide which Shinobi game is my favourite, but both Shinobi 3 and Revenge of Shinobi are fantastic games, and must plays imo. The 3DS version is cheap, looks nice and is conveniently portable. A pretty great way to play the game.


Sonic 3 & Knuckles

Image
I'm kinda cheating a bit here, since I've beaten both of these games before, but this is the first time I've played both as a complete package.

Sonic 3 and me haven't always gotten on. I remember as a kid, seeing the game being sold on a market stall week after week, and it being just outside of my price range (at about £14). I owned Sonic 1, 2 and Sonic & Knuckles, but never 3. Fast forward years later, the game gets released on Wii VC and I finally get to experience it.

...And I don't really like it.

I don't like the redesigned graphics, I don't like most of the music, and most fundamentally of all, I don't really like the stage design - random spikes and backwards facing springs everywhere. Angel Island is forgettable, Hydrocity is meh, Marble Garden is awful, Carnival Night is the worst ever - that's a pretty bad run of zones to begin with.

Replaying the game for Sonic & Knuckles Together Retro month has given me a chance to change my opinion of the game and see it in a different light. Has it done so? Kinda.

Sonic 3 is definitely still the weakest of the Mega Drive games in my eyes. I still think the level design is the weakest of the main 4, and I still vastly prefer Sonic 2. But my opinion of Sonic 3 has improved from playing through for all the emeralds - I like how big it feels, and it feels like they were trying very hard to blow the previous games out of the water. I like playing as Tails (with the ability to Fly, unlike 2) and Knuckles (when you add S&K), I like the Hyper forms, and I've warmed up a little to some of the zones (Angel island and Hydrocity are OK, but I still hate Marble Garden and Carnival Night).

Sonic & Knuckles suffers from inconsistent zone quality too - I like Mushroom Hill and Lava Reef, Love Flying Battery, think Sky Sanctuary is OK and hate Sandopolis and Death Egg. I just feel like the highs in the S&K half of the game are higher than those of Sonic 3, and the lows of Sonic 3 are lower than the lows of S&K.

Overall, I like the games. But they won't be replacing Sonic 1 or Sonic 2 in my eyes - those games feel purer, have a cleaner design and are just slightly more fun to me.


Bayonetta
Bayonetta is an odd one. It didn't look like my kinda thing - I'm not into the modern action game genre, I wasn't sure about the aesthetic, worried about the fanservicey character and just wasn't sure it was something I could get into at all.

It took a while, but eventually I managed to find my stride. I'm certainly not good at Bayonetta (I died a lot) but the game is actually fairly forgiving about not punishing you too much for dying, and I managed to get through on the Normal difficulty.

The action in Bayonetta is fast and fun, and I like how many combos you can pull off with your limited attack buttons - even if I often just mashed and hoped for some good ones. I enjoyed mechanics like Witch Time which rewarded you for successful dodging, and I liked the variety of weapons you could equip.

I even grew to quite like the main character. She's clearly very fanservicey, but she's also shown to be quite empowered and in control and that's a nice change - she doesn't need men to save her.

The story is really silly and quite enjoyable because of it. I grew to quite like some of the characters (like Luka) and enjoyed the ride even if I didn't really get what was going on most of the time.

The set pieces, especially the giant bosses, are very flashy and fun and ridiculous, and it just adds to the bizarre fun of the game.

It's not all positives though - I absolutely detested the quick time events, and I think it's a joke to be punished with instant death for missing one. I found the camera to be a pain too - the lock on system was flawed and ruined your attacks, so you were better without it, but it was all to easy be attacked from behind from offscreen. The worst offenders were the fast clawed enemies who I hated, and who you had to fight altogether too often.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by Bayonetta. It was a game from outside my comfort zone, but one I quite enjoyed playing (and my girlfriend enjoyed watching too). I'll be playing through Bayonetta 2 before the year is up too I'd imagine.


Fighting Vipers
Fighting Vipers is a quirky fighting game for the Sega Saturn which i recently acquired as part of a bundle I bought.

The game feels more fluid than it's peer Virtua Fighter, with caged arenas that block ring outs and allow for juggling, but which you can also bounce off of to counter an attack that knocks you flying. It still has that early 3D game stiffness though - it doesn't flow as well as the likes of Tekken 2 from the same generation

The character roster feels a little uninspired - there's a military type, a rock star, a 14 year old skateboard kid, and an 16 year old girl who is far too keen on showing you her underwear and is definitely played upon as the games sex appeal. That's who I played as. I promise it was because I normally find the girl fighters quicker and more fitting to my fighting style.

The main campaign is pretty easy - I beat it without continuing on the default settings without too much effort. There are a number of unlockable characters to get, including the very silly Kumachan, a bear mannequin or something who doesn't move his limbs at all and just floats around bashing into people to attack.

There is a mechanic where you can hit the top or bottom of your opponents body to damage their armour, and eventually break it, making it more vulnerable. This results in the character losing clothes too. The whole mechanic feels very underplayed though, because attacks generally do so much damage the matches are over before it can play a role.

Fighting Vipers is fairly fun, but it sure is ugly. I know the Saturn wasn't a 3D powerhouse, but the polygons here are just unforgiveable considering how sparse the backgrounds are. It's hard to take Candy's supposed sex appeal seriously when she looks like this: Image

Fighting Vipers is a worthy pick-up for Saturn, espeically for the low value it commands nowadays compared to most of the library. It's not especially remarkable though. I liked it, but there are far better fighters, especially on the PS1, which could be occupying your time.


Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan
Etrian Odyssey IV is game E of my alphabet marathon, and it has been a LONG time coming.

EO4 was my first experience of the Etrian Odyssey series, and it was overall a positive one. Exploring the dungeons is relatively compelling, and I loved setting up my party skills. I adore how well your party functions as a team - they all come packed with move to support each other and there are plenty of ways to set up your party.

It did feel like going without certain classes would make things a ton harder though - my Fortress and Medic were so key to keeping my party functioning I think i'd have needed to grind another 20 levels to stand a chance without them.

I liked how random encounters were a genuine threat in EO4 - it really kept you on your toes when an unlucky encounter could spell death - this was especially prevalent early on when your options for dealing with enemies were limited due to poor move options and low TP (magic points).

In fact, the game was generally more challenge early on overall for these reasons - the 2nd and 3rd bosses were a genuine threat, but most enemies after that I breezed through.

One major issue I had with the game though, is that it's just too long. It took me about 55 hours to beat, and I feel it outstayed it's welcome. Once you get the last set of moves and have your party set up how you want, furhter skill points are just invested in making your party to the same stuff better. Over the early parts of the game, your playstyle varies a lot as you unlock new abilities, classes and subclasses, but at the end, the thought of greatly changing up your strategy is horrifying due to the tedious grinding, so you fall into a repetitive slump. The story is basic enough to not help keep you going either.

Overall I'm glad to have played this one, and I'll probably play other games in the franchise in future - but it'll be a while before I do so. How people can play new entries in this series as regularly as they release I don't know!

Oh, and for anyone who knows the game and was wondering, here's my party set-up:

Front Row:
Fortress/Dancer
Landsknecht/Runemaster
Dancer/Nightseeker

Back Row:
Runemaster/Imperial
Arcanist/Medic

Have you given Fighters Megamix a shot? That's pretty good, too. Don't know if it's using the same engine, though.

Bayonetta is good, although I liked the DMC games better. I want the second game pretty bad, though, and I've heard it's an improvement on all fronts.

Fighters Megamix does take the style of Fighting Vipers, but with the added benefit of having the Virtua Fighter characters use the Virtua Fighter 3 moveset. I highly recommend it and it is great for those who want to add a fighting game to their beaten list as there are various challenges to complete and unlock the entire cast.

I don't understand that either. I mean I think Etrian Odyssey as a series is great, but the games take serious time investment from the player. Especially on harder difficulties. (Beating Untold's story mode on Expert took me 115 hours for example.) I can't imagine nailing through through these games annually as some folks have. I mean I buy the games yeah, but playing them in that frequent of a fashion isn't gonna happen.

32. Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 (Game Boy | 1994 | platformer) 7/10
Image
Wario decides to steal a golden statue from some pirates in order to finance rebuilding his lost castle. Along the way he deals with a genie even greedier than himself and a surprise twist involving that wily ol' Mario.

As a sequel to Super Mario Land 2, Super Mario Land 3 changes up things quite a bit. Obviously you're playing as Wario, not Mario here, but that's only the start. The pace of this game feels slow, one assumes to accommodate the large sprites and minimize LCD blurring. Wario has quite a few abilities that Mario did not. For one thing Wario can wear different types of hats that give him unique powers. Wario can also dizzy enemies and then pick them up to throw as projectiles. To gain extra lives, Wario collects hearts. Wario also collects coins, but he must spend these to play mini-games and unlock doors for level progression. Also there are myriad hidden treasures throughout the world and if all are found, something special will happen at the end. All of that said, Wario still shrinks if he's damaged, and falling down a pit will end his life same as Mario. Maybe the two aren't all that different after all.

The overall design of Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 is only slightly above average. While the graphics are quite nice, with large expressive sprites, the audio is a different matter. Wario Land's OST attempts to sound mischievous with impish melodies played off-key. However the soundtrack ultimately comes across as simplistic and amateur, with nary a catchy tune to be heard. Wario Land is also a very easy game, with level designs that often feel sparse and non-interactive. Only towards the very end of this game do levels begin to incorporate such rudimentary elements as moving platforms or vertically scrolling areas. So while Wario Land is a long game for its genre, much of these levels are utterly forgettable and blur together overall. Controls are simple and tight, with jump physics that feel different than Mario's but work very well. Boss battles are fun at least, although they follow the same formula time and again.

Wario Land deserves credit for initiating a new series for an emancipated mascot. Also for taking noticeable strides to have a different "feel" than a standard Mario platformer. But with the bland level designs, easy difficulty, and disappointing soundtrack, Wario Land comes across as a bit milquetoast in nature. So while Wario Land in itself doesn't match the heights of its immediate predecessor, the game did serve as a successful launchpad for further adventures of Wario. And considering how good some of those are, I for one am glad Nintendo took such a chance with Wario Land.

19. Catacomb Apocalypse (PC)(FPS)
20. The Catacomb (PC)(Top-Down Shooter)
21. Catacomb 3-D (PC)(FPS)

After some test runs earlier to get the hang of the changes, I sat down and powered through Catacomb 3-D this evening. A few of the cryptic puzzles took some thinking(rich friends and the number of council chambers is 23...), but I managed to figure them out successfully and work my way through. With that, I finish up the Catacomb series.

Catacomb 3-D is the final entry on the id Software side of things before Softdisk took over the series entirely, and it's a strong departure point; built from the bones of Hovertank 3D(and supposedly inspired by a demo of Ultima Underworld), Catacomb 3-D is truly a first person perspective version of the previous two Catacomb games: the controls are the same, the heavy use of secrets in the design is the same, the creatures are different but still reminiscent of some of the Catacomb monsters, the chargeable attack is the same, the use of a hub world and messages which must be found to understand the path is the same, even the bumping into walls and making a sound is the same.

But yet, there are some major differences beyond the perspective change that would be a sign of things to come for the series, id Software, and the FPS genre. First, Catacomb 3-D introduces Nemesis, the series' recurring villain, who would go on to appear in the next three Catacomb Adventure titles. Second, while health is still registered in a bar manner similar to the previous games, this game was id Software's introduction to a floating head that visually registered damage, a relatively minor design choice but one that would stay with them through Wolf3D, the Doom series, and into Quake. Third, the saving system has been changed again, now allowing the player to save anywhere in the level and keep his progress up to that point.

Still, this game does feature some notable differences from later titles in the series; first, you cannot shoot and destroy spells, chests, and potions. The ability to destroy your own upgrades was introduced in Abyss, so feel free to spam the attack button. You can still charge up your attack too, though in the same amount of time you can spam the attack button rapidly for a ton of damage. All enemies are stunned by your hits in this game too, so you can even hold the mighty demons at bay if you press the Ctrl button fast enough. But of all the changes I found the most important, it was the inability to slide along the walls. In later Catacomb titles, you would slide along the wall if you bumped into it. That isn't the case in Catacomb 3-D. Here, you stick to the walls, meaning they can be absolutely deadly if you find yourself getting swarmed. As a result, caution is always urged, because escape is far more difficult. The tactics that work to evade critters in the later games do not work as well here.

On a side note, there are a few little touches that I really like about the game. The first is the music, of which there is only one repetitive track, but it is very reminiscent of what id would later be pumping out with Doom. This music and the sound effects were also used in the Commander Keen series. Second, there is a Pong knock off available for play in the game's main menu. And third, you don't actually have to defeat Nemesis in this game at all. Instead you win by rescuing Grelminar. Who is Grelminar, you ask? Why, he's actually from John Carmack's Dark Designs RPG series that he developed while still at Softdisk in 1990.

Ooph, I'm about Catacombed out!

Grabbed this for free on the amazon app store a couple months back and played from time to time when I had nothing better to do. Yesterday on the train ride home I beat the end boss.

This is a take on the oh so common destroy the enemies through trial and error "Angry Birds" type game. It plays fine and has a funny looking main character. Good time waster, but nothing terribly deep here.

Bonk's Adventure on Game Boy is not the same game as it is on TurboGrafx-16. Although it shares the same basic gameplay elements and concept, there are improvements. The level layouts are much better designed for example, and enemy placement is more respectful to the player. Actually the difficulty has been toned down quite a bit in the Game Boy version, and it feels fair now rather than aggravating. That said, bosses still take too many hits to kill (especially the final boss), but unlimited continues help with this issue. Bonk's Adventure on GB has very nice and clean graphics, and excellent music, with good controls. Honestly it's a better game overall than the original trilogy was on TG-16, and I'm not just saying that from all the head trauma either.
PLAY KING'S FIELD.
