God the Yoshi thing was so on brand for the team names. It was just full on, chef's kiss, perfect. Loved it.

Faxanadu is amazing.

Legacy of the Wizard is a super cool mess. I'm carrying a torch for Lizardcube to remake it. It'll never happen.

Vectorman is bad.

Super important edit: Black Tiger is also very good.

If you don't thank your bus driver you are a poor human being. Full stop.

If I could change one thing about Pokemon it'd be that every Gym Leader would have a full team. It's crazy they don't.

I mostly enjoyed this game but I have one, perhaps unfair, criticism of it. Game balance and pacing.

I got to the last form of the last boss before realizing that I, very much, did not understand the health system. It was only because I kept getting "one shoted" despite having full... guard, or whatever that mechanic is called.I

This is when I had my aha moment of realization that I was being a dumbass. Nevertheless that's a problem. I'm terrible at this style of game yet I could cruise to the very last moments of it despite entirely misunderstanding one of it's core mechanics.

It's a problem of pacing and balance I think. The game needed to escalate it's difficulty at a better pace and place smaller difficulty spikes throughout. As it stands the only real pushback the game gives is asking you to face the bosses forms back to back.

Even setting aside my mistake I don't think the game adequately prepares players for the final encounter. It just never asks you to understand or accel at the games mechanics before that very last moment.

Also the level design is bland and unmemorable :p

Despite that it's pretty fun. I know that was pretty negative but I was engaged enough to plow through in two sittings. Definitely worth a look if this is your kind of game. The basic ideas behind the combat are clever and it controls beautifully.

I've never understood why Steam Punk illicits such a strong negative reaction in some people.

I'm talking talking about normal rational people too. It's the internet. People will go off half cocked on literally anything. But those people usually typically aren't worth listening too for obvious reasons.

Steam Punk however can often turn otherwise easy going people, who wouldn't typically start spouting vitriol because people like a thing they don't, into baseline forum/comments/twitter trolls.

Ben here immediately going "Fuck Steam Punk" at the drop of a dime would seem out of character for him... if it wasn't Steam Punk.

People have inexplicably strong opinions about Steam Punk. Same goes for the folks who just fucking *love* it.

It's baffling. It's such an innocuous aesthetic. "What if they invented slightly more advanced technology sooner" as a setting. Also goggles. Who cares? Even if that's not your jam, who cares? You just don"t see people getting angry about it in the same way when it comes to any other genre. Sci-fi, fantasy, western, zombie fiction, horror, etc. People certainly dislike those things. But Steam Punk? "Fuck Steampunk" every single time.

It's fascinating in that very human way of being utterly irrational yet super wide spread. If it's just a runaway meme I wonder it's origin.

Murder Island is clearly 1st degree. You go there with the intent of mass murder. There's no unexpected or surprise element to it. In my Ted Talk...
