The Division 1 Global Event: Outbreak
The Division 1 Global Event: Outbreak
You better get sum Am2r in!! I actually just replayed super metroid since I was a kid when I first came out and I totally didn't realize how short it was.. I think I beat it in 3hrs 30 mins. You'll be rdy for Dread nowFinished up Super Metroid and Zero Mission already. About halfway done with Fusion as of last night.
Also finally made a layout for my twitch www.twitch.tv/theslysyl which is where I've been streaming all the metroid games. Still definitely in the learning process for how twitch and streaming works. It has its own culture and stuff and I really don't want to bother that much, but i gotta do something if I want people to watch.
Funny enough I got the urge to bring out the old guitar controllers and played some Guitar Hero - which lead me down the rabbit hole that is Clone Hero and now I accidentally have over 100GB of clone hero music. Fun, but my fingers hurt. They aren't used to being stretched like that.
I would def do Am2r next then Samus returns. I believe Samus returns is longer. I personally enjoyed both but still liked the look of Am2r pixels better and game play feels a bit tighter closer to zero mission. Also the prime games are longer as well so might be best to do those later. I tried metroid Prime a few years ago but I just couldn't get into the 1st view, movement, aiming and it felt really sluggish compared to the fast paced game play of the 2d games. I actually played Aria of Sorrow for the first time last yr. Highly recommend it & see it as next best Castlevania after symphony of the night of course.AM2R is next after Fusion, then doing Samus Returns. I've been wanting to compare the two and it seems like the perfect way to do so.
I'm tempted to go through the prime games. They're a larger time commitment though.
Playing the GBA Metroids and messing around with my GB operator is making me crave some Castlevania, so I think I'm gonna jump into Aria of Sorrow next...
I plan to give prime another chance bc it's so highly rated but when I first played it I just couldn't get into it. Same thing happened with Witcher 3 lol. Those two games are so highly rated yet I couldn't get into them...I think another issue for me is that I just can't play an fps with a controller.. I'm from the old days of quake 3,unreal tournament, tribes, where we used m/k. It just feels really awkward and slow using a controller and I hate having to use auto aim to kill things it just doesn't feel right..I used to speedrun Prime 1 so I'm incredibly familiar with it. It's one of my favorite games of all time.
I still suspect that Prime 2 and 3 Will likely be 12+ hour games though, I have a dolphinbar (which is awesome) and that'll allow me to play the Prime Trilogy in 4k with a real wiimote. I did this once before many years ago.
I could also just hook up my Wii U through my capture card but that seems like more work for worse visuals.
I don't know if I've replayed Aria of Sorrow since the DS came out, so I'm a bit curious to give it another go. I would likely jump into Dawn of Sorrow immediately afterwards. But I vaguely remember absolutely hating the touchscreen magic sealing aspect.
Give the Wii Metroid Prime Trilogy version a go. The wiimote motion controls are way, way closer to M/KB and way more comfortable overall.I plan to give prime another chance bc it's so highly rated but when I first played it I just couldn't get into it.

If you like Castlevania sotn you will no doubt like Aria of Sorrow. And I totally agree I played through a few stages in Dawn of Sorrow & gave up the magic sealing stuff ruins it.
Last weekend I played Borderlands 1 GoTY Enhanced. They've made a lot of improvements over the original including a few much needed fixes. Been awhile since I played BL1 and forgot how fun it actually is.
I wish I had time to attend local tourn still, I went all in when Fighterz came out. Still love the game but i just dont have the time anymore =[.Kinda cool, makes me want to check it out again. I did finish it back when it was new, but I was kind of lukewarm on it overall.
I'm going to attempt to practice Guilty Gear Strive this week in anticipation for a bi-weekly tournament next weekend. I got completely stomped at the last one .-. to the point where I think I may just swap characters to somebody more cheap, lol. I don't think I'm going to have the time to dedicate to the game for me to work extra hard on middle-tier characters.
