  • A Link Between Worlds

  • Super Mario 3D World

  • OoT 3D and MM 3D. (Both, IMO, the best way to play these games.)

  • Smash Bros 4 3DS (but it isn't anything too special if you already have Switch U)

  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf (might not be worth the time sink if you already have Wild World or New Horizons)

  • Mario Kart 7 is nice if you have friends who can play it too

  • And Mario & Luigi game

  • Cave Story 3D was pretty good

  • Star Fox 64 3D

  • New Super Mario Bros 2

  • I think there was also a Pokemon game on the 3DS

Various indie games like Steamworld Dig or Shovel Knight

Oh huh, all this time I just assumed they were only being held afloat by ~investment dollars~ and whatnot.

Oh ya I mean more like, in the hypothetical scenario where they weren't driven by profit hungry infinite-growth jackals. What would be the break-even cost? $1? $2?

I wonder how much Discord would have to charge for it to remain good? I'd pay $3/mo for Discord to never change.

In retrospect, I didn't know "Kiss Me" was not an absolutely original song.

Also, from the artists Tumblr:

The GOURD had to come back in a similar but different role, so I put him in a hat.

I don't know why, but I really do love this so much.

I loved the creepy and almost comedic work done in The Boys are Back in Town. Didn't expect the GourdChat Lore to get expanded upon.

I've watched this four times now and I feel like I've taken in a new thing to appreciate? Perhaps all media should be made less than 10 minutes long, but of such high quality that you watch it several times?

There's this all these tiny bits of subtle storytelling, and the way it builds tension and horror with UI elements was just really well executed.

I don't know how to express it, except this is an exceptionally high quality video.

isn't it weird that a trampoline is kind of a status marker for the wildly rich, but they only cost like $400? you don't need a $100k salary to afford that

it's really just the lawn that's the status symbol

Haha oh my god this is so shitty. I have an XPS and I have had none of these problems.

If you didn't have a source I would have thought you were joking, that's so bad. Even worse, it seems the app is Android only and doesn't even work, per the reviews

I found it to be very difficult, but I didn't do much item hunting, and it turns out there are special tricks to kill many bosses with ease.

If difficulty isn't a turnoff, then, yes. It controls so much better than Super Metroid (the SNES one) but does not build ambiance as nicely IMO.

But I'm biased-- I love Metroid, Metroidvanias, and stupid-hard games.

EDIT: I just saw you beat Deltarune Ch2 optional boss on no-hit. In terms of difficulty, I think you'll do fine with Dread :)

I can't believe they managed to meet and surpass these 16 years of simmering hype and expectations. I remember being in 2005 on an Animal Crossing forum talking about Metroid Prime being an X-Parasite and wondering how Dread would make use of the DS screens.

Also, it seems like Chozo is a real con-lang? I can't believe they managed to nail VAing Samus in a way that was satisfying, fitting, and great. The warrior scream at the end sent absolute chills down my spine.

Up until this comic, I thought "squid game" was just some Splatoon 3 spinoff that I was uninformed about
