It's better than nothing I suppose, but so's Mighty No. 9 apparently.

Can't believe I didn't see that coming before I opened the spoiler. Laughing

I'm sure some people will actually have that attitude (or the 'it's optional content for experts, you don't need to play it to see the ending' alternative), but for me it's disappointing that the game's now locking story content, not just great level design, behind the 'git vv gud' wall.

It's difficult to argue that they are locking story content behind gameplay considering how fair Celeste is with its Assist Mode. I'll give you level design as you perhaps won't get the same sense of satisfaction and appreciation for the level design, but it's not like they're holding anything back without a route to get to said content if you're struggling.

Quite disappointed to be putting The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge (PS2) back in it's box, uncompleted. I'd love to have stuck with it, as it absolutely nails the spirit of the classic 1993 film. It's very faithful to the source material for the most part, with many the characters and songs that you'll undoubtedly remember vividly if you've ever seen the film. There's parts of it that are reworked to compliment a story-driven action-adventure computer game better, but it retains the film's style fantastically well all the same. 

What a shame though that the combat is so jarringly dull. It lacks style and substance; it's a bog-standard mid-2000's Capcom hack n' slasher, yet with much less variety in it's moveset than you'd probably be wanting. Add in backtracking and a dodgy camera, I simply got bored with it before I'd had the chance to finish it. It's just too samey. This would be a great shout for Drunkalilly's 'Games They Played' thread, as I'd imagine that it would be much more fun to watch someone else play this than it is yourself.

I recognise that this is mostly my problem rather than the game's. Still though. Sad Another one for LGTP maybe.

Just use assist mode Balla! If the game has taught us anything, surely it's that using an assist mode is okay Razz

but it's nooooooot

Nah of course it is, I'm just pretty sure I'd not get the same fun out of it. I reckon that, depending on how I tweak the AM settings, I'll either find the B-sides dull or too hard. I need that plot context, that feeling of progressing a story, to propel me through them.

Last game you DIDN'T finish and your thoughts - Page 19 Childoflight_nakedboxshot_mobile_156297
I gave Child of Light a go - turn-based fighting is not my thing, but I thought I could see past it if everything else was interesting. Unfortunately, it hasn't held my interest. I feel quite guilty about this, as it's clearly a beautiful game, but it's a bit of a mess to play. I'm not sure the writing's good enough either; rhyming everything is "clever" in theory, but it just ends up with you waiting for more unnecessary text to appear.

Also

I got through Tecmo's other NES entry, Solomon's Key - but this is craptacular. It's full of old-school cryptic nonsense, surrounded by a platform game that had been eclipsed a couple of years previously by Super Mario Bros.

To quote Jimbob, ‘BOOOOOOOOO’

Nah I can completely get why CoL wouldn’t be everyone’s, and indeed your, cup of tea.  I maintain that the rhyming dialogue fell on the right side of charming, but - personal taste innit.

I might give it another go, as I haven't uninstalled it or anything. But I've had to drop one game somewhere, and that was at the bottom I'm afraid (*continues to play Breath of Fire and Adventures of Logo*)

Talking of rhyming dialogue, I've found it not particularly great in Milkmaid of the Milky Way which I just got on sale on Switch
