    1. Bought the physical version and it’s the First time I actually beat the game and it was decent. Nice level of challenge but it’s not anything amazing or groundbreaking . It’s a solid game tho that I think everyone that’s a fan of metroidvania type games should play. It’s fairly short too

    2. By the way, sorry about stabbing you in the back on ARMS earlier in that three-for-all- I got my rush ready and realized “oh, oh I can win! I just need to deal with the bigger threat first!” XD

      Fun matches with ya… when the lobby actually put us in the same games lol

      1. Ha yeah good games man! That was strange how few matches we actually had together, when I’ve played with other friends in the party mode lobby I would get matched up with them a lot more frequently, it must have been a fluke that night. Did you notice that kappatroll twintelle? All she would do is guard the entire time, getting matched up with her in 2 vs 2 sucked lol

        1. Yeah, I got paired up with her and a Byte and Barq that wouldn’t do anything but grab against a lv. 6 Hedlok… didn’t stand a chance. This was a little after I noticed you left.

    3. It is great, considering that it has all been done by one single man. It is also great from the standpoint of game design, a work of reference for any game developer. But from the view of a gamer, it’s just good, nothing special. It’s definitely not generic, but also not mind-blowing.

  1. That is….a pretty pathetic list to be fully honest. Mostly remakes, ports, and indie games.

    Thankfully that should be fixed by the end of the year.

  2. I would only buy Zelda and Mario Kart I suppose but that’s a old game so it hardly counts. Also Zelda is a WII U game if I really want to be critical. This list to me really sums up whats wrong with Nintendo consoles in the past 15 years. I don’t know or care about 95% of these games , add the end of the consoles cicle maby 10 games will be added if i’m lucky. In my local store they always got loads of cheap ass made games aswell about television shows lol.

    1. I don’t think it deserves to be on any list it has a 6.4 user rating for a reason and most serious gaming websites don’t rate it above a 7 eather. These games always show my whats wrong with Nintendo these days , this is the kind of third party Nintendo owners look forward to but it can never compete with games like Witcher, CoD, GTA and 40 other games.

  3. Kind of sad to see Super Bomberman R nowhere on that list. That game is way better than what the critics say about it, in my opinion, especially since the game is getting updates (including the recent update that adds Team Matches, more ways to earn Gems, and more characters, on top of the past updates that includes changeable camera in Story Mode and better difficulty consistencies). I’m hoping the game gets reviewed again once all the updates for it have landed.
