I agree completely with your review. I am slowly working away at it, but it is really, really hard.

I will dominate it!

I gotta take a look at what other obscure Famicom/FDS stuff is on the eShop....

My digital want list is now rivaling my physical one, which is kinda scary.

Been a long, long time since I beat this one. Funny how you remember so many things. Knocked off Star Road and played alternative version of this one after that. This is one of those cases where I think a series was never gonna be any better. I just do not think they have ever done Mario finer!

This one made a bad, bad first impression on me with its control scheme. Having to control Max's view with WASD didn't leave a nice taste in my mouth. I also didn't care much for actually moving Sam around (again with WASD) either. Looking past that, however, I saw a great comedic adventure. Overall, this season isn't as good as the previous two, but it's still quite clever. This season has been give a noticeable facelift with higher res textures and more polygons onscreen. The audio has pretty much been untouched, not that it needed to be messed with.

The biggest (and most welcome) addition is the ability to play as Max who's gained psychic powers. The powers cleverly integrate into gameplay by offering more creative ways to solve the game's puzzles as well as lending themselves to the series's style of humor. Some noteworthy powers are the future sight which provides hints for said puzzles (in a humorous fashion of course), transformation paves the way for much wackiness, and the voodoo doll has seen many uses outside of its assigned segments to make characters say off the wall things. Teleportation is especially notable since it greatly reduces the amount of backtracking needed to complete the adventure.

I've heard these games are rather easy, and I guess those who say that are right as I was able to beat 3 out of 5 of them without looking at a guide. I can imagine these games can be difficult for some as they require following their weird logic. For example, there's a scene where "Max" has to transform into a blimp and Sam has to shoot him in order to set a banner on fire. Anyway, these Sam & Max games are fun, accessible Point-and-Click Adventure Games that everyone should play.

I still admire the attention to sound in SMW. When you're in a cave your sound echoes. When you jump on Yoshi a galloping cadence is added to the music.

The game blew my mind when I was probably 16 or so, and still does these many years later. The game is beatable by a player who is not a well trained player but brings a challenge for those willing to undertake it. 100% in this game is not easy. Still never collected all of the Yoshi coins.

This is why I consider SMW to be the perfect platformer. Easy to best for anyone that keeps at it. But to master it takes learned skill.

I wish I could get a copy of Mega Man 7 cheaply. I've never actually seen it in person. :(

Contra is definitely short, and if you've been through it as many times as I have, it's even shorter! It took a long time to get to that point, though.

July came and went without any games beaten. Started plenty - finished none.

1/3: Super Mario Bros 2: Lost Levels (Luigi Run) (3DS VC/NES)
1/4: Super Mario Bros. (Wii / All-Stars)
1/15: Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)
1/20: Super Mario Kart 8 (WiiU)
1/28: Super Mario 3D World (WiiU)
2/15: Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon (3DS)
2/15: Super Mario Land (3DS VC/GB)
2/16: Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (3DS VC/GB)
3/3: Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land (3DS VC/GB)
3/13: Dragon Ball Xenoverse (PS4)
3/23: Metroid Prime (Wii)
4/18: Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (Wii)
5/3: Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (Wii)
5/10: Donkey Kong Country (WiiU VC/SNES)
5/16: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Hyper Stone Heist (GEN)
5/23: Mario Party 10 (WiiU)
5/25: New Super Mario Bros 2 (3DS)
6/18: Super Mario 3D Land (3DS)
8/9: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (WiiU VC/SNES)

I did something different for this run through LttP. This is a game that I played to completion dozens of times when I was a kid and although I adore the game, graphics, and story, that familiarity had made it difficult to see a play through to completion. This time I played the game using the Wii Fight Stick by Hori - and it completely changed the experience for me.

This way, the game felt much more like a Gauntlet game or similar arcade style title. The slightly reduced accuracy of the sticks movements required more careful attention to spacing so that I could deal with multiple enemies at once. Since Link's sword play was less reliable due to the input method, it made other crowd control items that I've always ignored insanely valuable. I emphasized anything that would let me attack from a distance so the bow became my main weapon of choice and the fire rod and magic pendants were there to get me out of scrapes.

Essentially, it was a Zelda game where Link sucks at sword fighting and it was a great experience.
The PSTV is amazing.
