Don't think I'll receive my copy of 3D Allstars for this weekend.

So I'll play some Hunt: Showdown. Maybe a bit of Fall Guys (got it as a gift from a friend).

Might jump back into Blasphemous on Switch. Was thinking of getting back into Wreckfest as well. Have yet to play it online.

I heard that Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is actually pretty good. Your thoughts on it?

Barely played it tbh and not that big on platformers, I do like Donkey Kong though which is what this is basically very much like, at least from what I read.

Edit - Yea ex developers

The game was developed by Playtonic Games, a studio composed of former Rare employees. While bearing similarities with the Donkey Kong Country series, the team opted not to use the moniker "spiritual successor" to market the game.[7] The game was officially announced on June 8, 2019 by publisher Team17.[8] It was officially released on October 8, 2019.[5]

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair (Original Game Soundtrack) was independently released by Playtonic on October 16, 2019 on Bandcamp, with a fully distributed edition under the video game record label Materia Collective.[9] The music was composed by David Wise, Grant Kirkhope, Matt Griffin, and Dan Murdoch.

The music is also fantastic. From the guys who made those classic SNES and N64 platformers music.

Anyway, I'm playing more Iron Harvest.

Been able to play nothing but Warframe over the past two weeks. Partly due to lingering bout of anxiety, partly because the Heart of Deimos update opened up so many new things to grind for. The former has since greatly improved, and the latter is just about done. I can now start using Grandma Tokens to buy Standing instead Seriglass, and I'm down to just six frames (skipping two) left to re-farm for Helminth, and only Rhino and Hildryn are must-haves, so they can wait.

So yeah, I think I'm going to get back into Horizon Zero Dawn this weekend.

Physical should be delivered tomorrow, but I will probably double dip and get the digital game for actually playing.

Will also finish my flight training on the simulator.

...and continue through season 2 in FO76. New Daily Ops is a welcome addition, similar to rifts from Diablo 3. One Wasteland update also makes all enemies scale to you and opens up the entire map for viable farming.

I have already started to play Super Mario 64, the only 3D Super Mario and mainline Super Mario game overall that I have yet to play. Even though I owned and played almost every Nintendo console from the NES to the Switch, I never owned a Nintendo 64 or played any of its games. I skipped the fifth generation as I did not like crude 3D graphics of that era.

Lets see:

  • Replaying Jedi Fallen Order
  • Replaying Control
  • More SSBU

And that's about it. My daughter wants me to play Warcraft III: Reforged with her, but I really don't want to be disturb this weekend lol.

I may have considered super Mario 3d all Stars, but considering its not a remaster, but just a lazy port, is $80, and has artificial scarcity manufactured by the big N, im going with HELL NO.

Really puzzled why so many people are getting all wet to play 3 old games that still look the same, and could have easily been played elsewhere any time in the last 10 years lol.

not mario. i'm not going to bother with the collection. i have mario 64 and galaxy already and the ports are not enough to warrant a rebuy for me. one for the collectors i think.

...though i may power up the ol wiiu and give galaxy a whirl for a quick 5 mins.

but nope: this weekend its going to be mostly Horizon Zero Dawn and F1 2020 on the PC.

Enjoying horizon quite a bit now. Initially i though it was just an open world tomb raider with giant robots but fighting the robots is a lot more fun than fighting humans and animals in tomb raider. the world itself is also quite fun to explore. i dont find myself using fast travel much at all.

Definitely the most enjoyable game i have played from Guerilla by a long shot. There is a lot more they can do for the sequel so hopefully they do get creative with it.

I was playing Borderlands 2 and finished it yesterday, but I don't know if I stick with the DLC or just move on to Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-reckoning.

I didn't force her to be a gamer and she just found her calling card. As long as she's getting good grades on her virtual school, she can play her games as a reward. But really, I don't want to be bothered by her...oh well, it's hard for me to say no lol.

Word of advice, don't have kids.

I started playing Mario 64, but I think I'll skip to Sunshine. I can see that Mario 64 was revolutionary for its time, but it's a little too dated for me now. Probably come back to it later.

Virtually anything. You got a lazy port at an inflated price. Zero creativity put into it, no new models, no new textures. Why should that half-assed (if even half) cash grab get Game of the Year over something unique and new?

That game is AMAZING! Just be in the right mood for it. That game has a way of hitting you right in the feels for massive crit damage if you are not in the right mood for it.

Three of the best 3D platformers ever made? Great quality ports?

Sounds like game of the year to me.

@dzimm: Yeah? In that case, maybe CDPR should remaster the Witcher 3 and re-release it every single year so it can win GoTY every year.

Do you not see the flaw in giving "game of the year" to a re-release of something that possibly already won it when it was released originally?

This is true, if they were remakes it would be a different story. But this re-release hardly reaches the level of remaster. Not even close to what the original All-Stars did in it's time.
