Whilst We should talk picked some interesting topics to discuss (cheating, codependency, abuse, etc) regarding relationships, it doesn’t do a particularly good job of exploring them. It’s clear that the potential is there and yet it feels like it has mostly been squandered in a very average visual novel.
Despite a better use of its dream setting with some more exciting puzzles to solve in the seconds half, there is no denying that it still doesn’t make the most of the setting. Specially during early moments when going through dull locations, like a hotel, whilst listening to the same boring music track that makes it very difficult to find a reason to keep going. It’s a shame to see Superliminal not making the most of its dream material, but at least it does somewhat make up for it with the occasional clever idea.
Whilst it’s commendable to see Nintendo being more daring with its key franchises, it’s clear that it didn’t quite work out on this occasion with this new Paper Mario entry. Paper Mario: The Origami King makes for a mostly fun adventure that is bogged down by some ideas that didn’t quite work as expected.
Although Alfa System has dabbled in the genre before with the likes of the Shikigami no Shiro franchise, this is definitely not a stand out new entry for the shooter genre, but it’s not like there is much choice out there at present either. It’s definitely a decent effort and one that casual players could enjoy, but fans of the genre will not find it as challenging.
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definite Edition truly lives up to its title in a time where others have done the bare minimum when it comes to making older games available on the current hardware generation. The addition of extra content is also a nice touch and being able to play such a quality title again in this manner easily makes it another essential game to play on the ever popular Nintendo Switch.
