the potato stuff was hilarious.

@prfsnl: I had no idea there was a Portal 2 pack for Dimensions. Wow. I gotta pick that up.

There's a Portal pack. I am not sure whether it relates more to the first game or the second. Regardless, it's awesome, and I'm getting it (along with the Doctor Who pack).

FYI...my son is way into Legos right now; so I picked up a Lego Dimensions starter pack "for him" this week. I am probably more excited about it than he is...but if I'm going to play the game, I'm going to need my little buddy to put together some blocks!

it's a great game. My wife and I picked up the starter pack a couple of months ago when BB was running a sale on it. Think we payed $50? The base game is a lot of fun, and we've slowly been working on it sporadically.

I definitely have a short(ish) list of wanted add-ons for Dimensions, though I haven't picked any up yet as we haven't finished the base game yet.

I wish Supergirl wasn't so expensive, but her limited release was unfortunate.

I fall into this camp too. I even own Portal 2 but I've only played the multiplayer co-op campaign - never the single player one

Speaking of Kirby's Dream Land 3, I enjoyed my time with it, but the wonky physics really diminished my overall enjoyment. I know it's a small thing, but sometimes, that's all it takes. I'm the same way with Mario games, honestly...

Mario tends to be top notch, but I still don't love the physics for the New line.

Okay I simply misunderstood your posts then. Disregard I'm retarded. :o

The Dream Land games are all great choices. Trip World is sort of similar in that it has really nice music and cute graphics, and is also very easy as Kirby games tend to be. If you haven't played through Gargoyle's Quest 1 & 2 on GB yet, I truly think you'd enjoy those.

Hmm I'm a little sketchy on those, since I'm that weird guy that doesn't like Demon's Crest. Mainly because of what Sarge is kind of saying above on Dream Land 3 haha, I just could never get a good feel for the way the gargoyle controlled, slowly jumped and hovered, and latched onto walls. The bosses were super hard too and the weird backtracking/world map kind of tired me out. That and it's awesome graphical style just made me want to replay Super Ghoul's n Ghosts.

January:
Super Mario Bros Advance 4: Super Mario Bros 3 (GBA/WiiU)
Super Mario Bros Advance 2: Yoshi's Island (GBA/WiiU)
Wario Land 4 (GBA/WiiU)

March:
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)
Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3)

April:
Front Mission 3 (PS1/PSTV)

First a quote from myself, 18 days ago:

Past Flake wrote:Playing Front Mission 3. 24 hours into it. Hitting that 'when the hell does this game end?' phase.


At 24 hours I was getting weary of Front Mission 3. I finished it tonight...at 46 hours. This game was entirely too long. Definitely it was bang for the buck (since I got it for like $5 off of PSN) but it stopped being fun a long time ago. I have spent the past week and a half practically 'hate playing' this game, just to finally finish it.

This game does a lot right but there was not enough variety or customization to support more than 30 hours of gameplay. There were points where the story dragged for no real reason (The entire time spent in China, for instance) and there were scenes that were turned into battles when they would have better served narrative pacing as simple cutscenes.

All in all, I mostly enjoyed my time with Front Mission 3 but I am really excited to do something else with my time now.

Last but not least, I would like to drop a link to a gamefaqs article that I used to determine how much further I had to go in this game. It is also the most 90's era gamefaqs article I have ever seen. The best part:

Sorry I haven’t been replying to mail or anything. Got grounded…


Seriously, it is awesome!
The PSTV is amazing.

Now it's time to go back and do the whole other campaign, lasting you about the same amount of time! Nope. I couldn't do it either after beating FM3 the first time. "Someday."

Congrats on beating FM3 though. And please don't let the bloat and sluggish pacing of FM3 put you off the later games. FM4 and FM5 are leagues better. And also manage to be challenging as well. Especially FM5.
PLAY KING'S FIELD.

SRPG's tend to fall into that category of "way too f-ing long" a LOT in my experience. I like Project X Zone quite a bit, but it was WAY too long at 60+ hours. That game really should've been like 40 hours max, especially considering the whole escapade finding the parts to that chick from Dot Hack were nothing but filler and took up like 10 freakin' missions.

That's one reason why I love shining force. Not a lot of filler. Things move at a fast pace and finish right when it should.
