Happy New Year folks! I hope everyone had a good holiday season. Did anyone score any big loot? My gift game turned out to be Mario Odyssey, which I’m loving to death.
My only complaint is the “base game” is too easy. They clearly built it around the idea of re-playing and exploring levels to find harder goals, and that adds substantial difficulty – but it’s not really traditional Mario difficulty. It’s more of a puzzling/exploring difficulty than challenging platforming. It’s a matter of CREATIVE use of platforming mechanics more than SKILLED use of platforming mechanics, if that makes sense. For me, it’s fine – I love the game. But I almost feel like it’s a different type of Mario – it’s own spin on the series like Paper and RPG (although obviously a less stark divergence)
