I liked SNES Zelda but was never a big fan of 3D Zelda. There wasn't much else to play at Switch launch, so I bought BOTW, thinking I'd sell it after playing it for a few hours.

130+ hours later, it's one of my favorite games of all time, right up there with Super Mario Bros 3.

I’m torn between buying Donkey Kong or a few indies. Those being: Banner Saga, Darkest Dungeon, and Golf Story or Garage. Hmmm.

follow your heart

speaking of DK I've turned the sound effects down to like 20 so just so I can crank up my amp for the tunes.....music in the snow world rips and I love the new takes on some of the classics

also Mario Tennis Aces pre launch online tournament 6/1 - 6/3!

Donkey Kong is blowing my mind, it's a real experience. It has all that AAA polish but the gameplay is super precise and nuanced vs. "Press X to pay respects" gameplay I usually associate w/ big deal games.

Have you played Darkest Dungeon? It never pulled me in the way I was hoping it would.

botw question

am i missing something about arrow availability? every time i’ve seen someone else play they have like 80 basic arrows and a bunch of every other kind. my game progress is....not correlating with increased arrow amounts. i loot chests i see, buy some from beedle sometimes, i think i use them pretty sparingly, but i always have like 20 basic arrows and <5-10 of a couple other kinds, then i’ll hit a major test of strength and get wiped out. i’m definitely not generally getting more arrows over time. where the arrows

As you progress in the game, as long as you are getting enough gems and monster parts, money will become no object. I always stock up on plain arrows whenever the opportunity presents.
Also I feel like I was getting chests of elemental arrows more often as I got stronger, but I could be wrong. At one point I had like 60 bomb arrows and I wasn’t buying any

Boss battles the only thing I'm not gleefully looking forward to for sure. On world 6 now.

To be honest I skipped most major strength tests on my first run through because I knew arrows would fly to stand a chance. Most other situations where I use arrows I get a decent amount of them back from the ground, and then there are chests which make me end up in the green overall.

well yes, because those games are terrible. the demo of Octopath had more to say in 30 mins than either of those games, and watching the end of the video above has me optimistic.

Octopath looks cool.

Question on DK - is the Funky Kong or whatever easy level easy enough for my 7 year old to play? She plays Odyssey with Assist Mode on and enjoys Kirby.

After playing further, I've found that Fusion is a lot better than I remember. I think k I prefer it to Zero Mission. The SA-X and the tension it inspires is perfect. Really adds another layer to the typical Metroid experience
