Recommendation for adventure enthusiasts:

 

2NKrH3l.jpg


Difficult to recommend when it has been less than £3, and frequently free, on every other platform for 10 years.

 

It’s a great game, but £30? And it’s sold out anyway?

Is pretty short as I recall, so 30 quid does seem steep, lovely 'though that artwork is.

Well-made as it is, yeah, I wouldn’t put it at $35. I’d put it more around $15 (around 12 quid).

Only speaking for me but I'm bouncing off a list of 100 games with zero context - it barely acts as recommendations. 

 

I admit upfront right now that I'm not that good at describing things and can be lazy, but I suppose I'll start off mention CrossCode again which basically an action-RPG/puzzle game set against an MMO framework. Combat is also interesting since it features a melee/ranged attack combination, with the ranged attack in particular also be used to solve puzzles.

Played a few hours of this recently and honestly, I found the combat super tedious. The enemies took too long to kill, and it was basically a case of holding the right stick towards them until they died. Not sure if I was doing something wrong. It’s a shame really because it’s beautiful, and up to that point I loved almost everything else about it.

Yeah, can totally understand that since I felt it was trying to go for something different in the combat in a way some others might not be as used to, so they prob did it knowing some would be skeptical, but went for it anyway, which I still admire.

One of the more unique Switch games I've come across. Such a simple, yet effective idea in how you take a golf ball and use cards to putt it at certain moments to get up hills. Gets really cleverly creative for the puzzle game that it is (Golf Peaks):

I mean, I had no problem with the combat and it was a refreshing change from the usual turn-based or sword mechanics, but towards the end of the main battle area I felt like I was killing the same bullet-sponge enemies over and over. It became pretty tedious.

What do people reckon regarding giving Paper Mario 64 a whirl on the SNES online thingmy, or splashing out on Origami King for £25? 

 

Been trying to flesh out my Switch first party collection, having been abroad for years and neglecting it, but am aware that the series has had diminishing returns for a while. I've only actually played Thousand Year Door on the GC (which was amazing, as everyone rightly knows).

I found the battle system in Origami King to be pretty dreadful, unfortunately. The environments are lovely, but it turned me off after a couple of chapters. Mind you, I got about 10/15 hours of fun out of it, and sold it on for not much less than I bought it for, so you can’t really lose.

 

Nothing comes close to TTYD, but the first game is probably the most similar. They should just make a new game with that same battle system.

I recommend the Nintendo 64 game, but not Origami King if you’re looking for a similar experience. In that case, I’d give a recommendation for Dangen’s Bug Fables. Beyond similar gameplay, it features more banter between the characters, which I find more interesting in seeing their relationships develop as opposed the mute Mario approach.

Just to muddy the waters - I’d thoroughly recommend Origami King. The characters are great company, the environments look great and are fun to explore, the battle system is good and comes into its own during bosses, and - best of all -  it’s really, really funny. Lots of amusing gags and physical comedy; the whole world is made out of paper and the writers have good fun with that. 
 

£25 is a bargain.

Origami King is a title that actively encourages you to not engage with the game. RIP Paper Mario.

 

 

The music is awesome I'll give it that.

The battle system in Origami King was super-original, I’ll give it that, but it just wasn’t satisfying after solving the same puzzle for the hundredth time. Wish they’d use that system for one chapter, and switched it up every chapter. It really didn’t have the legs for a full game I don’t think.

I don't understand why Nintendo just refuses to go back to the old battle system everyone loved

 

Paper Mario feels like it's in an identity crisis at this point if you ask me. It looks as if it doesn't know if it wants to be a JRPG, a platformer, an adventure game, a puzzle game, an action game, etc. It's like as if it tries to please everyone, but ends up pleasing few.

For some balance, a lot of us here loved origami king. The battle system isn't too bad once you do the cheat of taking a screenshot and getting rid of the terrible time limit.

 

The rest of it is amazing and I just bought it again recently to own a physical copy. It was probably my GOTY after nearly bouncing off it very hard at the start.
