    @VotesForCows, Phantom Hourglass is probably the weakest in the entire series, so I wouldn't base your decision to play any of the others based on your experience with that one. I think everyone owes it to themselves to at least try aLttP and OoT seriously.

    Though I do think PH is a perfectly servicable game.

    Not a lot (though I'm playing Pokémon Blue on it atm), but that hasn't really got anything to do with it being 'replaced' by the Switch per se. It's more that I only really play older systems if I have a game in progress on it. Similarly, other random systems like the Dreamcast or Gamecube are currently patiently sitting on a shelve as well.

    I'm always playing a combination of new games and old games, but because those old games are spread out over a dozen systems whereas 'new games' means either PC or Switch, it's only natural.

    It's indeed one of the best Wii U games, and it's good that people get to play it. At the same time, I'm getting a little tired of everyone craving every game ever released on the Wii U to come over to the Switch, while they never actually supported the Wii U itself. Surely if there's so many good games for the system, more people could've supported it?

    Well whatever the case, I just hope it finds an audience on Switch (I won't be double-dipping as there's no new worlds apparentely), and its success will lead to a third entry in the Retro DKC trilogy at last.

    It seems like it's not going to be similar to the story modes of the GBC/GBA games at all. I wouldn't even really describe it as a story mode, really. More a mission mode or something.

    To be honest, I'm more concerned about the core gameplay. I enjoyed Mario Tennis Open, but the circle-on-the-floor thing has got to go, even if it does look like they changed it this time around. Whether or not it has a dedicated single player mode is less important to me. The GCN installment is still the best in the series, after all, and that one only had your standard tournaments.

    The way I see it, it doesn't really have anything to do with difficulty or the differentiation between patches or expansions.

    When you get down to what happened, they took content that was previously available for all players, and put it behind a paywall in a cheap ploy to get people to buy an expansion. That's inexcusable, crappy behavior.

    Maybe it's my eyes, but I wouldn't play a game with a HUD like this without sitting close to the TV anyway. I wouldn't even attempt to play this in handheld mode.

    @NiceGuyNeon That wasn't even something I thought about, ha.
    There are so many good moments in snowy regions in that game. The Lynel that's walking around that snowy plain, the initial mountain region on the plateau that was really cool because it kinda blows your mind there's a whole snowy region in only the beginning area (not to mention it explains the cold mechanic really well), the snowboard course...lots of good stuff.

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: What's Your Favorite Winter-themed Environment or Level in a Game?

  • Avatar for Minkukel Minkukel A month ago

    The first ones that usually come to my mind are Super Mario 64, thanks to its music, which I still think is the definitive winter tune in gaming, and Yoshi's Island.

    Breath of the Wild had some great snow areas. I also really enjoy SSX On Tour's mountain, Kero Blaster's snow stage and DKC's snow themed levels.

    It's kind of weird to me there is so much (well, relatively, because I personally haven't seen that much uproar) focus on Pyra in a game where there are lots of fanservice characters, some of which are much more fanservice-y than her.
