Oooh boy.

Robobot had a fair few nods to 64, along with the rest of the games. Hell, it kinda implies that Susie got sucked into the same alternate dimension the Sphere Doomers came from, along with reverse-engineering Pix. And I'm pretty sure Star Dream was the OS of a Nova.

The only Kirby game I've played recently was Rainbow Curse and, like. What have I been missing?

Triple Deluxe and (especially) Planet Robobot were so good. Robobot has a lot of fun powers, and the Mecha Suits are great fun.

e: Koei-Tecmo have announced 3 Warriors ports for Switch - Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires, Orochi Warriors 3 Ultimate and Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada. They'll all be complete editions and will include all previously-released DLC. They're coming on November 9th in Japan, no word on a Western release yet but I would expect they will be coming.

Croagunk, Darkrai, Empoleon, Decidueye, Scizor. I think the only new assist set is Litten/Popplio

Apologies then, I always thought that notation was straightforward. j, b, and c are Jump/Back/Crouch abbreviated. The rest is just buttons. It's probably easier to read if you played the game and know the limited types of moves.

I still have to do the loving robo-camel. Honestly I feel like I should do a few dozen more shrines to get my heart bar up a little but ehhh. Maybe I can do Ganon with what I have. This will probably be the first story-based game that I've finished since Fallout3.

My initial goal was to clear it for Splatoon but I solved that by just not playing BotW and playing Splatoon instead.

Realistically I'll be trying to finish BotW by the end of the Switch lifecycle.

My plan is to beat Splatoon 2 this weekend, trade it in for Rabbids, beat that by the end of September and trade that in towards an SNES mini (I have a preorder already).

I like Splatoon but I don't have the time to invest in leveling up in an online shooter to get to more content.

Question for people who've beaten BotW:

Can you keep playing after beating Ganon? I really enjoy wandering around and exploring, but I also feel like it's about time I wrapped up the story.
