Going to pick up Mario 3D All Stars today and get started on Mario Galaxy, my favorite 3D Mario. I 100%ed this game back in the day, I love everything about it. The soundtrack is GOAT tier levels of dopeness: https://youtu.be/IVH6Gl7W0hI

I haven't played Mario Sunshine since it was originally released in 2002, but I remember not liking it back then. It's been so long that I don't remember why I did not like it. I'll give it a second chance, see if my opinion changes this time.

Mario 64 is a stunning achievement for its time, but these days I get frustrated wrestling with the primitive camera controls. The Peach's Castle section of Mario Odyssey made me really want a remake of Mario 64. If they remade it in the Mario Odyssey engine I would be super hyped.

Well now Baldur's Gate 3 is pushed back a few days, so ignore my last post about playing it at the end of the month. I'll still play it but just later.

Still playing the first Ori, but it's boring me tbh. I don't dislike it, but it feels very repetitive and the combat is subpar.

I'm probably going to change to Mario Sunshine on 3D Allstars soon, as I missed Sunshine on the GCN.

trying to play the first silent hill game on an old busted up psp.

between how dated SH1 is and how dated my PSP is,
it's needless to say that i'm having a hard time...

i guess that sometimes even the greatest of things don't age well.

SH1 sucked a bit of ass even by the time 3 came out, but it's still a worthwhile game for aesthetics and story alone. Playing that ish on a good tube TV is the way to go, though.
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

Going to pick up Mario 3D All Stars today and get started on Mario Galaxy, my favorite 3D Mario. I 100%ed this game back in the day, I love everything about it. The soundtrack is GOAT tier levels of dopeness: https://youtu.be/IVH6Gl7W0hI

I wasn't expecting this... I definitely do not like Galaxy as much on this second playthrough. I don't think I would call it my favorite 3D Mario anymore.
It's still mostly brilliant, but one thing that constantly irritated me were the Wii-mote controls. I did not mind it back in the day when the technology was new, but today the Wiimote stuff just feels like a tacked on superficial layer that only tarnishes the brilliance of the actual game. It reminds me of the annoying touch pad boss symbol things in Dawn of Sorrow... I know rom patches exist that remove that part of the game, because its obvious that feature exists just so they could tick the "Make use of new DS touchscreen controls" checkbox.

Galaxy is a grand, trippy, surreal experience, but the actual platforming isn't as interesting as it could be for a Mario game, especially compared to something like 3D World. The novelty of the circular levels combined with the planetary gravity makes for a crazy and unique experience, but as a pure platformer, it just isn't as good as other titles in the series.
