Halo, Bioshock, Halflife 2

If Metroid Prime counts then it beats all of those.

Halo 3 was a great game, but I don't seem to remember the campaign much. ODST stands out more to me.

For me a 'Metroidvania' type 2d game has always meant Castlevania a la Symphony of the Night. Metroid to me is always associated with Metroid Prime, one of my all time favorites. So another Prime would be amazing.

Even Prime on Virtual console would be pretty rad.

I guy at work came up to me yesterday (non-gamer, has kids) and proceeded to tell me a bunch of incorrect things about it that he was told or picked up incorrectly at gamestop (that it had a pack-in game, was launching with Splatoon 2, etc). So yes, it has entered the general consciousness to at least a small degree.

Well I dumped 70 orbs into the new hopper (picking red only) and I didn't get Eirika. Oh well, I did get 3 5 star characters including 5* Marth (the only other name I recognize). Boy are they over powered compared to my 2 and 3 star guys.

Still enjoying the game casually.

Wait there's only one Switch exclusive game launching? And no virtual console? Or we just don't know what there will be there day one?

Yay, Sacred Stones characters are in, time to dump the 60+ orbs I've been hoarding. Now I have to decide, do five characters at a time for maximum efficiency, or only pick red slots for the character I want.

The exp thing is very welcome. There was a fine line between getting the smackdown and it been too easy and not getting any exp.

Loved it. The action style is really refreshing. No shaky cam and plays out in sort of discrete beats, so you really follow what's happening.

Also there is something so liberating when the plot is so ridiculous you can just turn your brain off and enjoy the action.

Yeah just take a break, and have a fun time introducing your kid to video games in a few years.

Also, taking a year off is great because all the "new to you" games will be at least 50% off.

I think 1 star is iron, and 3 stars is bronze. So you should feed the 1 star to the 3 star.

Whelp, I thought I could just get my 2* scrubs to level 20 and slowly start promoting them to higher tiers, but that's not going to happen. It takes 200 feathers just to get one guy from 2 to 3 stars.
