    @cgrajko Get started on 3D Dot. It’s basically the first top-down console Zelda game since A Link to the Past. I personally hate people calling other games “Zelda,” but since 3D Dot is a deliberate parody it kinda fits. The funny part is that despite being a parody, it actually manages to be a very good clone of what it’s making fun of. its comedic nature may not carry the sense of adventure and atmosphere that the classic Zelda games had, but that mechanical gamepalay tightness in the combat, exploration, and challenges is all there and fits excellently. The difficulty is somewhere between ALTTP and the original Zelda.

    I think I can speak for a lot of us when I say I’m really starting to like From Software this generation.

    @cptcarnage I’m in a similar place. I have a ton of games on Steam that I have never even booted up. For whatever reason, the steam calculator doesn’t find my id, but that may be for the best since I’m scared of finding out what it says.

    @redswir1 I remember being very excited for that game but picking it up when it came out. Thanks for remind me. I hope you will keep us updated on your progress and whether or not you are liking it.

    On the old-ass graphics front, for some reason I decided to continue 3D Dot Game Heroes after finishing Rayman Origins. Yeah most of the game’s appeal is nostalgia and self-referential material, but I like to think of it as playing a new 2D Zelda game.

    I also just realized now that the spells you get in this game are called “Shader Magic” and that I now possess “Parallax,” “Reflect,” and “Normal Map”.
