Well, I'll check it out nonetheless. Depending on how well I vibe with it, it could be the last nail in the coffin for me being actively interested in new Fire Emblem games until they inevitably announce a remake for Ike's two games. Laughing

It's just a odd one though as by any other name, you more than likely would like as eg Persona.

Weird though how we've come custom to this is what X game should be like.

I don’t think that’s right though Mas, if it was like persona and also had the execution of Persona, fine, but none of the character interactions in Awakening/fates were equal to the social systems in Persona. If they were it wouldn’t be such a concern, but putting focus on the weak relationship system rather than the organic story telling of Rolf going from a kid that could barely shoot an arrow to a one hit killing badass seems like an odd move.

Yeah, the writing and characters in Persona made the social links compelling and as Andy rightly points out, that wasn't really there for the most part in previous FE games. A big part of Fire Emblem is the stories you come across on the battlefield - Andy's example of Rolf becoming an utter badass with the right amount of attention is a great one. I enjoyed Saber becoming a one man killing machine and essentially acting as Celica's bodyguard in Echoes. The only other example I can think of comes from Awakening with Donnel becoming a demon with the right amount of care and love too.

He might very well be right but I was talking about Three Houses and what we've seen with the calendar system.

How that you've got different lessons to go to, social events on certain days, side mini games and a battle at the end of the month.

Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 The_Legend_of_Zelda_A_Link_Between_Worlds_NA_cover

Right. It's Zelda, isn't it? It's gonna be good. There's a very strong chance it will be great. But somehow, will this one manage to feel extra special?




The 3DS wasn't quite starved of Zelda titles. We had Ocarina of Time 3D, we either would have or already had a Majora's Mask remake as well, Four Swords was released on the eShop alongside several virtual console re-releases. Still, the 3DS hadn't received its own unique Zelda. The Game Boy had 3, the GBA had one, the DS had two - ever since the N64, handheld consoles were the home of 2D Zelda.

When ALBW was first shown, I remember the concern was that it would be New The Legend of Zelda, doing for the Zelda series what NSMB was doing for Mario. Fairly generic content, a soulless 2.5D art style and so on. The graphics looked a little odd, the world was eerily similar to LTTP and we were all worried the formula was stale by now. Even the new mechanic, becoming a picture on the wall, seemed like a gimmick.


Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 A-link-between-worlds-4


As it was, though, the game was bloody good. Unputdownable, late-for-work, no-I-don't-want-to-come-to-your-Wedding-I'm-busy good. The LTTP overworld was used smartly, the gameplay was slick and modern, the dungeons were ingenious and the big innovation was something none of us saw coming; a freeform structure that allowed players to tackle dungeons in any order. This encouraged a genuine, meaningful feeling of exploration which had only been simulated by most earlier, more linear games. In fact, it started us down the path to Breath of the Wild, which along with some Skyward Sword combat would be the kick up the arse that Zelda needed- not to mention the best game ever made.


Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 Ss-019



I remember being unconvinced by Link Between Worlds until I gave it a bash at Comic Con. Seeing it in 3D on a nice 3DS XL convinced me I needed both the game and the machine. The little characters seemed so alive and real - further proof that the 3DS was at its best when doing 2D games. It was like holding an actual little diorama world in my hand!

I ended up buying the special edition Gold 3DS with the game pre-installed. We actually have one in the house right now, as Shen uses the same model. It was a bloody nice machine as well, big and shiny and pretty. I eventually shifted it because I wanted a Star NEW Star Nintendo 3DS, and then I went and killed that with gravy, so I guess I'm just a fucking idiot.

I bloody loved this game. It was, to my shame, the second 2D Zelda I ever finished, after Phantom Hourglass. I'd dabbled with earlier entries, even put quite a lot of time into some, but they'd never wowed me and kept me hooked the way the 3D ones do. LBW was different. The gameplay was fun, I wanted to explore every nook and cranny, and I was even kind of gripped by the story!


Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 350?cb=20131116055735



Obviously, dual worlds are a staple of the series, but I feel like this was the first time in which it felt like true parallel universe stuff, with alternate versions of the characters and all that jazz. It wasn't great literature or high art, but it had twists and turns and incidents, and I was on board all the way.

Spoiler:
 


Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 84861__23139.1501227204



I don't think this game would top many people's lists of Zelda games. I'm sure big fans of 2D Zelda prefer some of the older games' more hardcore sensibilities, and while this is a great entry point into 2D Zelda for newer fans, it doesn't thrill and delight in the way the big boys do.

It was an absolutely class game, though. It's a 3DS classic, a worthy entry in this storied series and it seems to have lead to the remarkable BotW and drop-dead gorgeous Link's Awakening remake.

It's a first-party Nintendo game, so it won't be cheap, but y'all should probably be stockpiling those before October 31st anyway - they'll keep their value better than gold, oil or even insulin.

This is a must-have for any Zelda fan. Often the handheld 2D games get overlooked as side projects, not least by yours truly, but you can't sleep on this game.

BANGER.

I remember thinking the game was ugly when it was first unveiled but the graphical style grew on me. It also came at a time when my faith in the Zelda series was at a nadir, after Spirit Tracks and Skyward Sword, titles which were okay but fell way below my expectations for the series. At that point I was even beginning to question whether Zelda games had ever been amazing in the first place.

So this game was a pleasant surprise. It was refreshing, solidly made, introduced a new gimmick which was actually great (turning into a painting) and was sort of revolutionary in the amount of freedom you had in the order you tackled the dungeons.

As you say, this game doesn't really top anyone's Zelda lists, which is a bit of a shame. While I prefer the 3D games, A Link Between World's is my favourite of the top-down Zelda games.

I suppose it's because since the N64, 3D Zelda has kind of stolen the show, and the re-use of A Link to the Past's setting has invited an unfavourable comparison to the aforementioned game. But I think it re-used the setting in a novel way, and that it's not exactly fair to compare those two games. They both try to do different things. Though as I've suggested, I do think ALBW is better.

I'm in the same boat as Kriken in that whilst I prefer the 3D Zelda games and I'd find that a top 10 Zelda list of mine would be mostly dominated by the 3D titles, ALBW is easily the pinnacle of the top down 2D Zeldas in my eyes. The open nature of the game and renting items from Ravio made the early game feel genuinely exciting as I had my pick of the dungeons for the most part. The 3D elements were used to great effect - I remember the vertical tower dungeon as an early demonstration of the effectiveness of the 3D. It doesn't feel like a game that would work in the same way on another console, much like Skyward Sword probably wouldn't be the same away from the Wii.

I think we're all in that boat, but then the 3D Zeldas are masters of the genre to the extent that three of them are in my top ten games ever.  ALBW comes in solidly as my fourth placed Zelda, and my favourite game on the 3DS.

It's a truly splendid game, making perhaps the best use of the 3D on the 3DS, helped by the painting movement and the resulting crawling-on-the-walls making the world feel truly 3D in a way that LttP just couldn't.  It had strong dungeons and bosses, the great music and visuals you expect from the series, and a surprisingly solid story focus with some good, perhaps even great, characters (Drunka mentioned one such).  Maybe I shouldn't have been surprised, but the game does naturally invite comparisons with LttP, a game I struggle to remember any actual characterisation from.  I think ALBW comes out on top to be honest.

I really didn't like the 'big innovation' though.  Bereft of BotW's feeling of a living breathing world, the more open structure felt a lot to me like a mistake.  It meant that you never had puzzles that demanded more than one item at a time; it removed the feel of Link slowly tooling up and becoming stronger that way; and it meant that instead of getting harder, Lorule (genius name)'s dungeons actually became easier as you went on, especially if you took them on in the 'wrong order'.  While these things fed into BotW's idea of 'go anywhere, do anything', ALBW's proto-open world, especially so closely tied to an old game on purpose, felt like it had ripped up the rulebook, used the pages as toilet paper, then handed them back to the player and yelled, 'WE'RE DOING A NEW THING ISN'T IT GREAT'

That I love the game so despite what seemed at the time like a titanic error, and that I can still only look back on fondly as a step in the direction of the GoaT, shows how great everything else about this was.  Have it!

I think the part of ALBW's open-endedness is a matter of preference in a linear or non-linear adventure. I loved having a non-linear adventure as it hadn't really been done before in a Zelda game - I don't think ALBW would have been anywhere near as memorable if it was designed in a tried and tested Zelda format. Did it get it 100% right? Oh, of course not - like you mentioned Balla, some of the dungeon designs suffered for it. Still, I did appreciate not having to play inventory manager every time I entered a new room in order to find the item needed to progress. More time playing and less time menuing is a good thing in my book.

There's no easy fix to creating a truly open world and a non-linear adventure whilst still retaining the ability to ensure the player has all the items they need for one specific dungeon. The only way I could think to resolve that would be to give the player all the items they need to progress from the word go. BotW basically did that, but then I think the sense of progression and the thrill in unlocking new abilities suffers as a result. I'm sure cleverer folks than I have something brewing to sort that problem for BotW2.

Interesting the discussion here sort-of arguing over whether this counts as an open-world or not. I think I struggled a little bit with it being over-familiar - despite all the new dungeons etc., the fact that it shared the map with a game I knew like the back of my hand meant that I could whizz through things a bit too quick; I'm also still a bit disappointed with the art style (whereas Link's Awakening is absolutely amazing). But I do have fond memories of the dungeons, and there were a lot of puzzles that I'd never seen before in a Zelda game. I think, despite our concerns, it seems to appear very highly on a lot of critics' lists of Top Zelda Games Ever - maybe we're all jaded so-and-sos!

Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 SI_3DS_SuperStreetfighterIV3D_image1600w


I’ve got very fond memories of the 3DS’s March 25th 2011 UK launch. Remembering back, I don’t think I’d ever been as excited about the launch of a new console. The wait between its UK release date being announced and then that date arriving was excruciating. I think I was literally counting down the days, crossing dates off on my Official Susan Boyle 2011 calendar or something. Dirty scalper that I was, I’d spent months hoovering up all sorts of gaming bargains in charity shops, online and in Cash Converters, all with the intent of trading those games and systems into HMV for big profits. That would then bring the cost of my brand-new 3DS way down, which was necessary for me as a part-time minimum wage bartender. 

Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 19f25del1-476749

Like a swift boot in the tadger, the initial price of the 3DS was eye-watering. I think it was £230 for the console alone, and £40 for all the best games. Still, my wheeling and dealing meant that I managed to get it cheaply in the end. I was able to buy my Cosmic Black 3DS with PES 2011 3D Edition, Nintendogs & Cats and Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition entirely with in-store credit, probably for much closer to £150 in ‘real money’.


Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 Nintendo3ds_us_launch


People like to rag on the 3DS’s early days, but for me the system and launch-window line-up massively delivered, at least at first. Apps like Mii Maker, Face Raiders and the AR Games were great fun to ps about with, and stuff like Pilotwings Resort and Ridge Racer 3D provided loads of high-quality gameplay. Yet I felt that it was Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition (SSFIV3D) that was the real show-off for the system. At least in my circle of pals, it could be argued that it was a system seller. I knew at least three folk who bought their own 3DS after I’d showed them SSFIV3D.




It's quaint to think now, but people would have waited literally decades for a fighter of this calibre to come out on a Nintendo system. With the exceptions of SoulCalibur 2 and the first three Super Smash Bros. games, there was an undeniable famine of quality fighting games on N64, GameCube, Wii, GBA and DS. That’s five different consoles there, and yet nearly always the best fighter on them was some sort of port of 1991’s Street Fighter II. Actually having something as modern, fully-fledged and comprehensive as SSFIV3D on a Nintendo console was a proper luxury. Having a near-perfect port of a 2008 arcade game on a brand-new Nintendo handheld was pretty spectacular too.

Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 Image2010_1223_1735_0_bmp_jpgcopy


It remains a staggering port, and it should rightfully be remembered as the 3DS’s most exceptional fighter. That said, it was definitely old news by the time it released. At its core, SSFIV3D is a very straightforward port, and one that holds few surprises. It’s got the same menus, characters, costumes, sounds and stages that Super Street Fighter IV had in it’s appearance on PS3, 360 and wherever else it had previously wound up. That’s admirable in a sense, but on the other hand it’s not at all a must-play game if you’ve experienced it elsewhere. 


Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 S3d-s21


I’d say that the only big updates for 3DS were either cosmetic or to do with StreetPass. Being on 3DS in 2011, of course it fully uses amped-up and eye-catching 3D. If you’re the sort of gamer who put that 3D Slider all the way up, you’d love SSFIV3D’s results. There’s a really smart over-the-shoulder mode that does a great job of showcasing SSFIV3D’s visual impressiveness as well. The StreetPass stuff seems pretty substantial itself, with collectable figurines that you can wirelessly swap with random folk that you’ve passed on your big Morrisons shop. I’ve got very few memories of using this StreetPass back in the day though. The 3DS famously got off to a very sluggish start, and those £1.99 copies of SSFIV3D that I saw in my local HMV less than two years after the 3DS’s launch attest to that fact. It’s unfortunate that millions of later 3DS adopters seemed to miss out on SSFIV3D, as it’s well good.


Let's Talk Some Bollocks About: The Nintendo 3DS & Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - Page 11 1280x720


The 3DS comfortably established itself in my personal Top 10 Consoles list a long time ago, and it’s hard to believe that it’s a full decade old now. That went quick. I’m eagerly looking forward to the 3DS’s next ten years, and I firmly believe that it’s future is very, very bright. Share your 3DS and Super Street Fighter IV 3D memories here

I don't have anything to share about SSFIV3D (mouthful), I'm afraid. In fact, I don't think I bought my 3DS with any launch games at all - the sort of utterly ridiculous move that only a massive Nintendo fanboy would make. Duh! In retrospect I might have shelled out for Pilotwings Resort, but mediocre reviews put me off; so, Streetpass and the AR cards it was, then, and not many hits on the former. When the Wii U came out with NSMBU and Nintendo Land and Trine 3 it felt like a relative embarrassment of riches.

Fast forward to now and it's fair to say the 3DS picked itself up a fair bit, but that launch was a real duffer for me. Still, I'm glad you got a fair bit out of it Cappa, and that post was a pleasure to read.

Jesus did it really cost that much? I have a fond memories of the 3DS launch as I was doing that whole 3DS Tribe thing at the time so I was very in to everything 3DS at the time. I went to one of the preview events and remember being wowed at the time and it also gave me a good chance to get a feel for a lot of the launch games and as you said Cappa, it delivered.

Sure there was no major Nintendo game at launch but there was loads of big 3rd party hitters, had a lot of fun with Street Fighter and PES, Ghost Recon was my favourite launch game and still one of the best on the system to this day plus Nintendo's own Pilotwings Resort was good fun even if a little on the light side. For me it was probably my favourite console launch too, it's the only one I've ever gotten on launch day by going in a store and even though I had lectures at Uni that morning I still had a lot of fun messing about with it when I shouldn't have been. After that point it was the ultimate companion for my trips in to Manchester for both work and education that hasn't really been bettered since for commuting.

I really fucking loved StreetPass.

Streetpass was the absolute bomb. Quest, Puzzle, Mansion... not Garden though. Evil or Very Mad And the way some games used it! The Bravely RPGs were tremendous in that regard.

I think that if I were getting a 3DS new today I'd be more receptive to the third-party launch titles, but it doesn't help that none of them were/are in genres I'm keen on. Not one.

Never played Street Fighter IV, in fact I am probably the only person that doesn't really like Street Fighter games. Big fan of other fighters but SF just never did anything for me. That first year of the 3DS was great though and I enjoyed reading the scene-setting style of your writing, Cappa. I bought a 3DS when Ocarina of Time dropped which I think was in the summer of 2011. Being the anti-social git I was/am I didn't even look at Streetpass or that AR nonsense - I just treated it like a GameBoy. I do remember playing Pokemon Black 2 on a 3DS though, it was a really late DS release.

For a long time Black 2 was my most played game on 3DS as well. Can't believe I didn't mention StreetPass, that was easily my favourite thing about the 3DS, some of the games were great and the excitement when that little green light flashed was second to none, if Switch had StreetPass I'd be taking it everywhere.

The fact that it doesn't have Streetpass seems like a massive missed opportunity and I'm still not sure why that is.

Yeah, I agree with that - the Switch is so much more mainstream, it seems like there'd be something in it.
