  1. Made of Ghosts

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    It’s the best-kept secret in gaming.

    The most offensive part of this is saying “air quotes” when you mean... written quotes.

    Super Mario Maker 2 - Nintendo Direct May 15th

    The beat blocks and on/off switches are going to be absolute game changers. <3

    The official rllmuk MCU ranking

    Best: Avengers, Winter Soldier, Infinity War Good: Guardians, Age of Ultron, Ant Man, Civil War Ok: Captain America, Iron Man Meh: Doctor Strange, Homecoming, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Endgame As you can see the Cap and Avengers series are where it’s mostly at for me. I seem to have avoided all the truly bad ones. Want to check out Guardians 2 and Ragnarok but that’ll do I think.

    They’re the weakest part of the game but I’d still take them over half the Skyward Sword/Wind Waker dungeons tbh
  6. Having loved Infinity War I really didn't care for this very much. The opening Hawkeye scene was probably my favourite bit. Really devastating. The whole opening section works well, I was surprised they set off to whack Thanos so quickly but it was a smart choice to have that happen early and show how little it mattered. All the depressing world-left-behind stuff was great but it feels like we immediately lose that gravitas as soon as the mission starts and it's just a fun romp. The time travel section felt very "let's get the thing", it's all gags and not much lingering sense of what's at stake. The character moments don't really interact with the quest: Iron Man gets to have a nice long chat with his dad, and Thor wandering off to find his mum is treated as this dangerous mistake but nothing actually comes of it. Nat and Hawkeye arguing over who gets to die was a bit better and I really liked Nebula's storyline because stuff actually goes wrong and it feels important. (Yes stuff goes wrong with the tesseract but it's fixed comparatively quickly and easily.) Also, this isn't very objective but "time travelling back to the previous film" has been a pet hate of mine ever since Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I HATED what they did with Thor. As a single comedy scene it would've been ok, or even if they'd just played the same concept a little bit more straight, but he stays in comedy mode almost the whole film and constantly undermines the drama. Hawkeye going on a killing spree is fair enough, but it felt like he turned around way too quick and faced zero consequences for it. I mean yeah he's killing bad people I guess but still. The final battle just hinges on a bunch of people arriving at the right time, yes it's a bit of a "moment" but it feels weightless. It's not the result of some big moral decision or test of character or anything. They just show up. That shot of Cap facing down the hordes by himself was spectacular. I hate being that guy but the "yay women" bit was just... cringe. It's a completely meta moment, it doesn't work as something "in" the film. (By contrast I thought the First Ever Gay Character In History was quite nicely done) Cap and Iron Man's endings were good. The Build-A-Bear line was funny.

    Do you ever remember texture maps?

    Is this ghostbusters rug a meme or what??

    The first one is by far the worst one

    NES Metroid doesn’t hold up quite as well as the likes of Mario and Zelda. You could probably argue for Pokemon to be in either of these threads.

    The first one is still the best one

    But what about the mind-bending puzzles, like figuring out what order to shoot the letters OKGN?

    I was thinking of Rhythm Tengoku too but I actually really dig the DS one and never had any trouble with the inputs! Oddly enough it’s the Wii instalment that killed that series for me.

    Portal. Sequel was good fun but there was just no way to recapture what the original had. To to some extent Wario Ware, although Twisted was great.

    "Forky" is an interesting concept that could really go somewhere. Most of the other stuff looks a bit rote though.
