You already have finished Super Mario Odyssey ? Whaoh ! Congratulations ! But you're right : when you have finished a Mario, it's never totally finished yet ! ;)

To be fair, it seemed a bit short to me, actually, at least for a 3-D Mario game, and I’d say I probably collected like a 5th of the game’s moons. I think most of the gameplay is in that post game, and finding the rest of the moons. After seeing where you go after beating Bowser, I’ll be partaking in at least some of it. Especially as the game is genuinely well designed and fun to play.

A bit short ? Do you know how many hours you have played it at all for the moment ? Is there a sort of timer in the game ?

The Switch has a “played for X hours or more” list in each player profile. For Odyssey, it says “10 or more” so I assume I played between 10-11 hours to beat Bowser.

Ah ok ! Thanks for the hints ! Hard to telle exactly but it's a good mark to tell more or less !
It''s not too long BUT as you said before, you are far from the end with all the moons ! :)

Well took another ten hours for me to say "alright, enough of that" for Mario Odyssey. Collected a good number of Moons, but apparently nothing really substantial for 100%-ing the game or anything, so I chose to just play until I was bored of it. At this point, I'm looking forward to the Okami Remaster, which I know I'm getting for Christmas. Until then, though, I still have Frozen Wilds (it is BRUTAL on the ultra hard difficulty), Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Silver, and since my 3DS will come with me when I travel on Thursday to see my folks, I may start another 3DS game. Thinking maybe Fantasy Life because I feel an itch to play a non-turn-based RPG (and I've played Skyrim plenty and at $60 it is WAY too much on Switch!)

I know that after playing many hours you can be bored, even in a game like Mario Odyssey ! :)
Good game about the next game you are going to play ! :)

And squeaking one last game in before the deadline, it's Romancing SaGa 2.

It's really a game that combines everything great and everything terrible about early 90's gaming: It's full of amazing ideas and grand concepts that can be viciously difficult and requires mastery of a number of vital mechanics that the game isn't all that interested in teaching you about. The final boss of that game is a notoriously heavy lift, but in some ways it makes sense- you're not fighting Kefka, or Zeromus, or Saruin, or Xagor- you're fighting a party of former heroes that have already beaten their own ultimate villains.

Been years since the last update

Games beaten in 2017:

01/08 - XBlaze Lost: Memories (PSV)
01/14 - Sakura Swim Club (PC)
02/05- Hitman: Blood Money (PC)
04/24- A Kiss for The Petals: Remembering How We Met (PC)
06/17 - Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PC)

08/28 - MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies (PSV)
09/11 - Atelier Ayesha (PS3)
09/15 - Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet (PS4)
10/04 - Steins;Gate (PSV)

I am always wary of Time Travel stories, because they are often crap, but Steins;Gate was masterfully implemented in my opinion, and the endings were so perfectly linked to the storyline and developments that there is nothing to complain about it. Not only that, but the writing is very good, with a great balance of humor, silliness, serious subjects, things to leave you thinking about them, pseudoscience, pop culture elements, etc. The characters are mostly all likable, with different personalities, but each one adding a lot to the game. Even the weirdness has credible reasons for existing, making the experience complete. The way they dealt with time paradoxes was great, especially the way they progress in a lighter mood until things get serious and the characters start seeing how serious are the things they were doing without thinking too much about them.

It was probably one of the best VNs I have ever played, if not the best, and one of the rare occurrences of me getting a platinum trophy (the only other instance was Monster Monpiece). That must have been the choice of the Steins Gate.

The last, but not the least, the girls are great, almost every one is waifu material. The best thing of the game was obviously dat Mayuri, Tutturu!

10/23 - LoveKami -Divinity Stage- (PC)

I had hopes it could be a nice VN, since it is from Pulltop, the same makers of If My Heart Had Wings, which is one of the VNs I'd rank at the same level as Steins;Gate, but I was fooled. It is just a throwaway fanservice VN, where you don't have a compelling story, great characters or complex themes being discussed. It is just a lighthearted story of idols, cliche-ridden, and with an excuse for you to choose one of the girls to romance. The story has only a few interesting moments.

Not that I disapprove fanservice and such, but even in that aspect, the game failed. There are some really bad artwork, which is a big turn-off. Some images are fine, but many of the fanservice ones are not beautiful or sexy, they are deformed instead. That is what happens in a poorly-made fanservice game. Similar to other short fanservice-oriented VNs, it is okay only if you don't have anything better to play.

12/23 - Material Girl (PC)

This game looked shady from the start, but since it cost me something like $1, I decided to give it a chance. Although the first impression was not very good because of the localization (not only poor, but words broken halfway at the end of lines), the game per se is interesting. Despite the subject, it is handled in a nice way, with many different options, including funny and sweet scenes mixed with harsh and depressing ones. For what it is meant to be, it is a pretty interesting title, though only recommended to those who are into that sort of game.
