Hey Bone! This...this is it. This is your life now.

I was legit thinking this was MrPopo's final form.

MrPopo's final form is a mass of sentient energy that can be neither created or destroyed, only stared at with abject wonder, envy and awe.

Yoshi's New Island (3DS)

After Elkin beat this game a couple weeks ago with middling reviews, I did go into it this game with a little trepidation, but I ended up being very pleasantly surprised.

The first major thing to get used to, is that Yoshi doesn't move like he used to. Yoshi is a lot slower to build up momentum when he runs and to swallow to make eggs, and this takes a lot of getting used to for someone like me who grew up heavily on the original game. However, after the first world or so, it was totally fine. I compared it to how Mario moves a lot differently in Super Mario U compared to Super Mario World: Not worse, just inherently different.

Speaking of the first world, I can sorta see why some people had problems with this game, because it's pretty slow. The first world was pretty underwhelming, and I really wasn't diggin' it, but I perservered. By about the middle of world 2, and certainly by world 3, I was really digging it as the game comes into its own element. I'm sorry I can't really describe that better, but it's just my experience with the game (perhaps this is why I'm not a professional reviewer ;p).

In terms of difficulty, I would say this game lines up pretty well with the original. I didn't really see myself dying much until I was trying to get all of the collectibles on world 5 and especially world 6. I'm currently going through the original again to confirm those suspicions, but it lines up generally with what I remember in that the game is far from uncompletably difficult.

Also, this game is welcomely more forgiving in terms of those collectibles. Where in the original games you had to get all of the stars, red coins, and flowers on one perfect run through, now you only need to get all of any of them, and it checks it off. For example, if on three separate runthroughs you get all the flowers, red coins, and stars respectively, you'd have a 100 on that level. I'm totally okay with this, especially giving that they made getting 30 stars harder in that whenever you die they reset to 10 no matter how much you had at the middle-ring, and they took out items so no more +20 stars at the end of levels to save your butt. I guess it's up to personal preference, but I don't mind that they made it easier.

With things like that, it certainly made unlocking the extra stage in each world after getting perfect in everything easier, and DAMN, they're as hard as usual. I had to just give up beating the special stage in worlds 4-6. They were just too vindictively difficult for my blood Xp

In summary, considering it's going up against one of the greatest games ever, Yoshi's Island, I never expected it to be better than that game. Although, I ended up having a lot of fun with a game that stands really well on it's own. I'm not usually one for scores, but I'd give this a 7.5 or an 8 if I had to.

1. The Match Of The Millennium (NGPC)
2. Pocket Tennis Color (NGPC)
3. XCOM 2 (PC)
4. Street Fighter V (PC)
5. Spelunky (PC)
6. Gone Home (PC)

Ok, so I beat Spelunky. It felt like one of those really epic victories. I have a lot of things to say about Spelunky, but not right now. I'll just leave at it: this is definitely on my short list of favorite games ever.

The latest episode of Idle Weekend talked about "walking simulators" and it reminded me I hadn't finished Gone Home. I had enjoyed it for one single two-hour sitting, but stopped and never went back. Booted it up last night and it turns out I was about 15 minutes away from the ending. And the ending felt like a total letdown to me. I think that in my own imagination I had built up a much crazier ending. But I still thought the game was plenty interesting and the atmosphere was great.

I'm thinking of picking up a copy. Any title that earns the title "legendary shit game" deserves to be in my collection. :lol:


Haha I've been thinking about getting that game. I feel like I've just scratched the surface of Famicom RPGs though. It's too early to dive into the kusoge.

Yes it is. And fun fact; I ended up dating the girl I threw my shirt on a year later.
