    I am also playing Secret of Mana for the first time...time has not been kind to that game. It's a lot of fun but that UI is very clunky. It's understandable that they are going to do a full remake rather than just a port, it needs a little spit shine in my opinion. As long as they don't throw the baby out with the bath water.

    Most of my answers have been scooped but I feel like GTA Vice City deserves a mention here. It came out when I was 12 and I was just blown away by the scale and realism. And boats!!! Seriously, I spent so much of my time with that game because of how immersive the world was.

    Going back now though it looks very dated, I popped the disc in this past summer and it was rough. Still plays great though.

    This all sounds neat. Glad to hear people are having some unique experiences with the game. Looking forward to playing it over the holidays or whenever I can get around to it

    Mike knows what's up. Turtles in Time is the only correct answer. I used to play it at my friend's house ALL THE TIME, because I never had my own SNES. It's my personal favorite arcade style beat-em-up of all time. How many more times can I say the word "time" to prove my point before it's time to wrap up this comment in a timely manner?

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: Which Additional Game Do You Want on the SNES Classic Edition?

  • Avatar for Drachmalius Drachmalius 17 days ago

    Good episode! I was luckily able to get a SNES classic just by walking into the store, and might play along with a Secret of Mana report. I've never played it before but it seems like it might be my cup of tea. As someone who was a genesis kid, this Snes classic is like a childhood dream come true. I used to be so jealous of my friends who had one, and despite playing a lot of the classics on virtual console or elsewhere it just wasn't quite the same.

    I also love hearing about some of the mediocre/bad games from a generation that are cast aside or forgotten. There's a lot that can be learned from what a game does wrong, not just what it does right. That segment was fun. Secret of Stars or whatever it was called sounds terrible.

    I'll pass on Wolfenstein and just get it on Xbox at release, but sign me up for some Doom on the go! Bethesda bringing some good stuff, very nice

    Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects hands down. I thought it was going to be like Marvel vs Capcom 2, which I loved. It wasn't anything like that at all, and I blew a Christmas gift on it as a kid. There's so many better games I could've chosen that year! I ended up trading it in, but probably got less than $20 for it.

    I mean, this was 2005. I could've asked for a PSP. Instead I waited until I had a job and got one in 2007. Lesson learned.

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: What's the First Game You Bought That You Wish You Could've Returned?

  • Avatar for Drachmalius Drachmalius 2 months ago

    The best video game sequel has to be Bloodborne. Hear me out, I know it doesn't have "Dark Souls" in the name but it is a sequel despite that. It takes risks by changing things like the flow of combat, equipment, the healing system, and the visual style. It takes all of the elements that work for Dark Souls, but puts on a new twist that gives the game its own identity. More sequels should follow this model. As much as I love Dark Souls 3, it loses some of its identity due to the fact that it is so much like the first game.

    That's more long winded than I intended. Great work guys, I love the idea for this podcast since I haven't been playing as many RPGs of late. Keep up the good work

    While I sympathize with the people discussed in this article, I'm looking forward to getting back into Destiny. I stopped playing after a few weeks because it was just lackluster at the time, but hoping they've learned since then and can keep me interested for a few months at least. From what I've played of the Beta, it's promising. But I wish there was a way to make everyone happy, I don't envy the people at Bungie working on this.

    Great review. Sounds like this is perfect for me since I never played the first one, I'm looking for a multiplayer game to grab me in the same way as Overwatch and Mario Kart have done recently. I can totally bring my Switch to my mom's house next month and just get lost in it.

    I'm glad they're picking up where they left off rather then trying to change everything, I want the best version of Splatoon not the newest necessarily.
