    Great breakdown of this game in today's gamescape.

    When I played this again about a year ago, I thought it held up pretty well. 3 or 4/5 is what I'd give it too. It kept me riveted through the entire playthrough even though the controls aren't perfect and there is no automap. The atmosphere it conveys is still pretty great, and the exploration and item acquisition is still fun. The Mother Brain room is frustrating to the point of stupidity, but the rest is quite good.

    My playthrough was on Virtual Console though, and I used the save states to my advantage. I would only recommend the authentic NES password or FDS versions to the folks who are looking for the vintage experience.

    I have at least one friend who I will try the Comrades DLC with. We're always wishing that more open world games that we play had this option.

    It does seem like a game in the same style as the previous ones, which is mostly a good thing. I really liked the art, music, and battles in Transistor, but the story needed more interesting things going on. The world was cool, but also a little too empty, but it nailed everything else so well that I didn't care.

    Bastion was generally fantastic too, and for a $20 indie game, I think Supergiant does great things.

    I wonder if they would ever consider developing a longer 20-30 hour game that allows more story and character development. I'd love to see a bigger game that uses some of the Transistor battle system and style, but I think Supergiant likes to keep the team small and still finish games within a few years, so that may not be something they would like to take on.

    I kind of enjoy digging up terrible games from the past, but I'm not as into remaking them for modern systems.

    Dragon's Dogma is one of my favorite games in recent years, and I'm glad it hasn't been forgotten. Maybe this release means they are trying to fund a related project? My crystal ball doesn't always work though.

    The Wolf Among Us is my favorite Telltale game, and I'm really happy we're getting another season.

    Can I stream PS4 games that I already own to my PC, like my Xbox does for Xbox One and 360 games?

    Pillars of Eternity is one of my favorite RPGs in the last couple years. I'm glad more folks can enjoy it now.

    Today, I just played through the black and white Gameboy version on my 3DS and I think it still holds up pretty well.

    In a new game, I'd rather see a new 2-D Metroid experience, personally, but I'll take what I can get.
