I would like to know what video games Juan Aguacate does enjoy. From his posts I've seen, he tends to really not like the games he plays. Surely there's some vidja he enjoys.

His posts remind me of those by Gamerforlife. Plays a lot of AAA and current gen stuff and hates it.

I mean, you'd see similar posts out of me if I played AAA and current gen games. But I have the sense to stay away from things that I'm almost guaranteed to dislike.

For the record, I also want to come out in favor of A Boy and His Blob (Wii). It is a beautiful, outstanding game.

I thought A Boy and His Blob was just okay, like basically everything I've played by WayForward thus far.

Hoping some of the later Shantae games will convince me otherwise

Yeah. I've played quite a few WayForward games. They tend to always fall into 7/10 territory.

Every once in a while, they exceed it (like with Pirate's Curse), but they're consistently the kings of the 7 or 8 out of 10. Which is good in a lot of ways, because you can expect consistency, but you're rarely going to find anything that truly wows you.

That being said, Double Dragon Neon was amazing.

I agree. I have played a lot of WayForward's games, but I only love a few of them (i.e., A Boy & His Blob, Shantae & The Pirate's Curse, and Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero). A lot of their games are good or very good, however, and I always give them a chance.

I really need to play the Bloodrayne game they developed a few years ago at some point. It looks awesome despite its mixed reviews.

A little recap of WF games I've played / beaten of theirs, what I think...

Wendy: Every Witch Way (played | 6.5/10) gets repetitive quickly
Shantae (played | 7/10) level designs are meh
Sigma Star Saga (played | 6/10) great idea yet jank as hell
Contra 4 (beaten | 7/10) well made but stupid hard
Where the Wild Things Are (played | 5/10) nice graphics, little else
Batman: The Brave and the Bold [Wii] (beaten | 7/10) decent co-op
Centipede: Infestation [Wii] (played | 4/10) pretty terrible
Aliens Infestation (beaten | 8/10) decent metroidvania

This company has made a buttload of games:

With rapid output like that, no wonder they don't take the time to really polish things.

10. Dirty secret: I never beat MI2 until this year. I always got off Scab island, but ran out of steam up when you had the other two added in. I did not see that ending coming and now I am super curious to what they were planning for MI3, instead of Curse.

The Special Edition of Monkey Island 2 does provide a talkie built in, so I just ran with that and had a ball. I swapped between the two modes frequently, which was handy for one specific puzzle. The audio commentary was awesome, especially when Tim was apologizing for certain puzzles and design choices. I am still not a huge fan of the new artstyle, but the game was thoroughly enjoyable (even if the entire last act I just wanted to quit and go play Fate of Atlantis again since the backgrounds are similar).

11. Bought it Saturday, finished all cups last night (on lowest difficulty). It is a step between Wipeout and Fzero and is an incredible title. I know Nintendo does not believe there is anything they can do with the franchise, but why fix what is not broken? New maps, new ships, exquisite gameplay. I know that I will get destroyed if I play online, but just playing against bots I more than got my moneys worth. Though my enjoyment of it is nothing compared to my four year old nephew who played the base maps on VS and thinks it is the coolest thing in the world. He spent yesterday drawing "hover racers" with my mother and insisted on video chatting to show me.

Now back to Kings Quest 7...
