Damn, that's high praise. I knew you were into it considering your posts but this I didn't see coming.

https://stinger.actieforum.com/t544-metroid-other-mAnyone else have a positive experience with this game? (I'm still bracing myself for it to go sour later, but so far I'm totally on board.)

I liked that game a lot. Sometimes I enjoy ‘on rails’...depends on the game and my mood. I really dig the 2D/3D stuff in the game, they did a great job with that where they could have easily blew it. It still has 2D puzzles of the old (I’ve played them all since the first one on NES). One of my favorite franchises.
The story...I sort of agree, some cutscenes are long and you do see more Samus personality which is unusual...you get to see a bit in Fusion as was mentioned, but this went a bit further. I love the way you learn in the Prime series...it feels better, because it’s up to you to find the story, it isn’t spoon fed, that was great. In this one though, you get to see her admiration for (I don’t remember who it is haha)...and do it sort of flowed.
Gameplay though, loved it. I just didn’t like some of the (find the obscure thing in this scene) portions. It even has a hard mode which is fun!
Have fun Laquerware!
Wowwww that is a dense analysis. I'm probably not going to watch the entire 48 minutes, but from the fifteen or so minutes I've just watched (jumping around to look at the subtitled bits), I'm not really seeing how the Japanese text actually supports this narrator's claims. Often his translations seem to infer things not actually in the Japanese text.
Sure, but considering how well-discussed this game is... this may be the final level going into a comparison of the English script to the Japanese script; I think the word choice is massively better in the video. The dedicated thread here on the game, you'll notice, is mechanically-oriented conversation.In any case, this is also just wayyyy wayyyy deeper than I think this story warrants delving, but I'm pretty apathetic about video game narratives in general, unless they're really exceptional (e.g., I loved Return of the Obra Dinn).
Thanks for the video, anyway! Interesting to see this kind of deep dive.

@Infinity_Divide wrote:Mario sunshine is...interesting. I agree with a lot of the criticisms(little variety, Fludd is too much of a crutch, blue coins) but it still has some fun objectives and Mario controls like he’s had way too much caffeine which is entertaining. Having a hard time finding time for it with Galaxy on the same cartridge though.
Playing more and more Dead Space 2. Feel bad for neglecting these games so much. Really love how later in the game the delimb system gets a new layer when enemies start spewing crap out of them after a delimb to encourage more careful kills. The hide and seek enemies are great fun and I’ve been having a good time laying traps with the detonator. It’s a minor thing, but I really like how spawns can work in this game; enemies crawl out of vents randomly, it adds some unpredictablity to the encounters while keeping it logically consistent with the game world. Also the ripper is such a fun weapon. Not really the most complex thing but I love it. That final fight can die in a fire though.
47:44 - "This subtitle file hardly constitutes a better translation. At least in the literal sense. I took just as much liberties with the original material as the official localization did. Hoping to make the story of Other M come across as clear and interesting as possible within the constraints of how it was presented.
Glad you liked the game as well. The game is definitely a top 5 DS game, or heck, maybe a top 3 one. I'll have to think about it.@TheFirmament1 wrote:>Ghost Trick
That's a great game! Directed by the same guy that did Ace Attorney, and it really shows in how it's written. I have really fond memories of playing it with my sister back when I was 8, even if I didn't really understand what was happening in the story.
