My Gaming Landscape [January 23rd, 2017]

It’s back! Hello everyone. Welcome to my first Gaming Landscape in almost a year. After attempting to replace this with a new feature, Thoughts On, I’ve decided to stick with this format as it worked for me for a very long time. The only change is that I won’t be as strict with my rules as I was before. However, for you the reader, it should be the same as it’s always been. If you’re new here, this is an blog post where I talk about the games I’ve been playing and my impressions of them. So without further delay, here are the games I played between January 1st and January 23rd, 2016: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Dash, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King.

Even the less popular Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic Spinball and the Sonic Adventure series have a charm that can’t be matched. Why are you subjecting Sonic to asinine filth like this? Why am I playing three characters at once? Why are Amy, Cream and Big the Cat in this game? NO ONE LIKES THEM! Who the hell is Omega? The inclusion of Knuckles Chaotix characters is a cool if obscure choice but I don’t want to play as them. Why do you have them collecting crap instead of going through levels like everyone else? Why did you leave out Mighty the Armadillo from the Chaotix game? This game frustrates me as a fan and as a gamer because this could’ve been at least good if not great.
