That doesn't justify not giving the option to skip tutorials.

You can skip them but they could have saved a lot of time by just giving you a blanket question at the beginning instead of asking you every time it pops up.

Every game will be someone's first game in the genre. Or maybe even first game overall.

Mario and Luigi Dream Team was literally my first Mario RPG, and the first JRPG style game I played since Dragon Warrior on the NES in the early 90's.

Every game should use the BOTW tutorial system of "if you can get out of the starting room you've learned the game"

Funnily enough, I'm enjoying turn-based... anything more and more as I approach middle age. I can barely play RTS games anymore because I simply can't keep all of the metaphorical balls in the air, but I have a great time with turn-based games like Panzer Corps/General, Order of Battle and so on.

They're remaking that one on the 3DS later this year if you don't mind waiting.

Runbow Pocket came out yesterday in both NA and PAL regions. It's New Nintendo 3DS exclusive. NA has a regular and a "deluxe" edition, the Deluxe includes:

  • Original single player game
  • Satura's Space Adventure
  • All 4 Costume & Music packs
  • 4 Nintendo 3DS Home Menu Themes

Regular is $14.99, Deluxe is $29.99. PAL price is not showing for me on the web for some reason.

That looks like it'd work perfectly fine in an O3DS.

I got Cave Story+ for Switch and was curious if there was a way to switch between old and new graphics? Since it was a feature in older ports, I assumed it would be here, but it appears to only be the new look.

Nope, but the "new" look (which is like 8 years old by now) kicks rear end and looks great.

Yeah. It looks fine, but I do have a weird gripe how there is a weird light that surrounds certain things like the bubbles of the Bubbline.

Nah, they changed it a little from that version as well. It doesn't necessarily look better or worse but it sucks that they don't give you the choice of playing with the older and/or original visuals.

I guess they want to get some value of them before people stick to their whole free games on mobile plan: http://toucharcade.com/2017/06/21/s...st-impressions/

Yet Another NeoGeo fighting game (seriously, was that system 95% fighting games?) in ACA NeoGeo Fatal Fury 2. Also on Switch, Cave Story+ has dropped in NA for an extortionate amount of money. I think I'm the only person who doesn't own that game already. And the Original Character Do Not Steal game Oceanhorn - Monster of Uncharted Seas is also available. It actually looks pretty good, but apparently is only "ok".

On WiiU, there's Daikon Set, a weird collection of "3 mini games influenced by first generation home dedicated video game consoles and the retro coin-operated arcade era." It's free though, so whatever.

On 3DS, RPG Maker Fes will be available on Friday (PAL) or next Tuesday (NA). There's also the standalone player available on the eShop in NA. No idea whether it's also on the PAL eShop. Ever Oasis is also releasing in both regions, and NA have gotten the Kunio-Kun game River City: Knights of Justice. Finally, there's the New 3DS-Exclusive Runbow Pocket. As mentioned earlier in the week, NA got a Deluxe Edition, which isn't available in PAL regions for some reason.

On the PAL eShop? It's not on the site, but it seems like they forgot/just haven't updated it yet. How much is it in the Queen's money?

I tried it and loved it. The game is cute as heck and looks extremely my jam. Visually and tonally it's similar to Fantasy Life.

There's a demo out if you want to try it, game isn't out til tomorrow. My only issue was the movement speed is way too slow for the amount of running around they want you to do. And side quests seem very MMOy collect five things but there was only one in the demo so.

It was okay to me, I think wether you like it or not is going to depend entirely on if the slow pacing puts you off. The main thing it reminds me of is one post-Lemmings puzzle games of the early 90's like Humans or King Arthur's World.

I don't understand how anyone can think any game but Partners in Time is the worst Mario & Luigi game.

Color Splash update: I got new glasses and now I can actually distinguish most of the blank spots. Still suck at 97-99% on a bunch of levels which is frustrating!

It received a few memorable reviews that touched on it being not as good as SS. With only Paper Mario, Super Star Saga and Thousand-Year Door to compare with, it was the worst of the bunch. But then we got like 4 or 5 worser games between the M&L and PM series in the years going forward, and Partners in Time just retained that legacy of being "the worst one"

It's really just the worst of the best, rather than the worst game in the entire series.

No one sane would be satisfied with these mobile ports except for the Christian Whitehead Sonic ones. The emulation is some of the worst I've seen recently.

I had never heard of Knights of Justice until this thread just now, but I am buying the poo poo out of that. I am a huge mark for any of the games in that universe.

Also, I've always wanted them to re-release King Arthur's World on another platform. It's one of the few SNES games I own a cartridge copy of.
