@roboccs: Yes. Get it. Great writing, and the gameplay is simple, but fun. A really good downloadable title.

I've been playing the demo. I feel like nothing I do matters other than the extremely simplified solitaire part. Sometimes I'll stay in the comfort zone the whole time and do well with the cards, but I'll do horribly in the end. And other times I just do okay with that stuff, and I'll get first place easily.

And I don't know how enthusiasm works.... Sometimes I have like 250 fire things and my enthusiasm is 60. Other times it's 250 and I get 100 enthusiasm. And the homestretch seems kind of worthless.... Either you're going to easily get the win or be too far behind to do anything, no matter how many boost things you have.

Obviously I haven't grasped everything, but it seems like there are too many systems that don't really do much. Kind of like Pokemon. But I have a bit of an anti-GameFreak bias, so take it as you will. ;p

@WreckEm711: @roboccs: I'd totally hunt with you guys. I saw the credits of MH3U a couple months ago but haven't gone back to it since. I think I still have almost all of the online quests to do, so it'd be fun knocking some of those out with you guys.

@JordanElek: WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO ME?!

LOL, I didn't remember anything about that level, so I just played it again. STILL didn't remember much about it, but I said "oh wow, I'm clever!" like three times during it.

Not all of my stages are that hard, some are harder. I'd advise staying away from Thwomp, The Great and Terrible. OR DEDICATE YOUR LIFE TO IT! Only one person has cleared it. There's even a training stage for it so you don't need to figure anything out, just execute.

I played your levels. Very good and Mario-y. Some levels I've come across just don't feel like they even belong in a Mario game (some of mine included), but you got the feel right.

@WreckEm711: Seems like those posts only show up in the activity feed, not in the play journal. I don't know how all of that stuff is organized now....

Here's a code for the first of my levels I saw in my feed: (896B-0000-019B-A373)

You'll be able to see the rest by tapping on my face.

@WreckEm711: The easiest way is probably to go to Miiverse and look back through our posts. Level codes are automatically posted there.

@WreckEm711: Yeah, but coins only last six months, so you have to horde strategically. We haven't really seen a big switchout of rewards yet, just little Miitomo things that don't matter.

Also, I don't understand what the point of miitomo is at all

It's for Japanese people who have forgotten how to talk to each other.

For us, it's a way to build up coins for My Nintendo if we want to.

Just finished Dark Souls (the first one) again, this time on PC. Still one of my favorite games ever. On to Dark Souls 2.

This is all part of my master plan to hold off on buying Dark Souls 3 until it goes on sale. I can work some budget magic to buy it now, but paying $30 instead of $60 would feel way better. (And if graphics cards get cheaper in the meantime, I'd love to upgrade before playing that game.)

The main thing that has helped me hold off is that I keep hearing how the story of Dark Souls 3 relies heavily on the previous Souls games. I watched the Breaking Brad playthrough of Demon's Souls over the past month, just finished Dark Souls, so completing Dark Souls 2 should give me all the knowledge I need to fully appreciate 3.

I never paid attention to the story before, but I've really come to love the craziness of that world's mythology. It's like Metroid Prime in the sense that most of it is told in descriptions and physical architecture. They're beautiful games to begin with, but knowing that the level design is based on specific lore makes it even more awesome.
