Those games aren't very similar to one another, but if I had to get one right now I would get Phantom Trigger because I'm not a huge fan of puzzle games. Though Ironcast looks fun as well.

Here's my set of games I can't decide between.
Phantom Trigger, Wonder Boy, Slime San, Blaster Master, Shantae, and Mighty Gunvolt Burst. Too many action games on this system!

Slime-san is like Meat Boy with tighter levels and controls with slo-mo and phasing abilities plus lots of alt playstyles and charming hubworld stuff + secrets. If you liked Meat Boy you'll like Slime-san; if you hate Meat Boy you might also like it too due to the better control and construction of how levels work (they're quick and on a "lake of fire is rising" time limit)

Blaster Master is one of the best "true retro classic" games I've played since Shovel Knight, it gets what made classic games fun while also adding quality of life poo poo like lots of savepoints, a map system, strafing, and lots of optional upgrades and items. Also has tons of replay potential with over 4 completely unique DLC characters.

Gunvolt Burst is essentially the Mighty No.9 demake we all deserved; it's quick and fun and to the point, and comes with a bonus character.

Can't comment on Shantae/Wonderboy but they both look good. Phantom Trigger, imo, is a decidedly worse Hyper Light Drifter that's more boring. That's the only game of the bunch I'd say not to get.

Buying a pro controller over that seems kind of silly especially since I'd have a few controllers I could connect.

They used to call me tricky-kid, I lived the life they wish they did.

From what I've seen on that MyMateVince guy's Youtube alot of the other controllers don't give you the full range of motion on the joysticks. It's either off or on for movement. He wasn't using this particular one.

Kind of lovely to deal with for MK8 and other things.

Just buy a pro controller because they are cool and good.

It's hosed up that there are multiple levels of cold in Zelda. You eat a cold resistance food but it turns out the top of a robot bird is double-cold so gently caress your spicy beef

Make 2-3 tier resist food/potions, buy some of the clothes in the bird town since each piece of gear gives a level of cold resist, or put on the freebie cold res shirt you get at the start of the game and eat your tier 1 cold resist spicy beef since they'll stack.

Nintendo's going to destroy these people if their argument is "you copied a device of ours that came out 2 years after the WiiU."

Maybe they figure they have a shot since the joycons look like their devices but good loving luck getting more than a "here's some money so you gently caress off and stop wasting our time" offer, at best, from Nintendo.

Just to keep a running tally the Wii, DS, 3DS, and the WiiU also had idiots suing Nintendo for the same bullshit so at this point it's par for course. I really hate patent troll bullshit. brb gonna patent the concept of interactive media on a screen and sue everything in existence

Why is rubber banding in a single player racing game such a bad thing? It keeps the challenge interesting imo.

Rubber banding isn't bad, but there can be too much of it. You want to keep up the illusion of a close race, but not overly break the illusion that computers are cheating (even though they usually have to).

I only played the demo of Blaster Master Zero but I feel like maybe some retro classics don't need to be revisited, it just reminded me of how janky the original Blaster Master was and made me realize that maybe I didn't really like that game as much as I thought I did 30 years ago.
