I'm in London and think a UK EZA meet-up would be cool. Don't tend to check the forums very often but I'll try and get better at it!

RE: YOUR Desire Index
My desire list is as follows right now going by those on the 'official' list;
1 - Cyberpunk 2077
2 - Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
3 - Gears 5
4 - Control
5 - Resident Evil 2 Remake
6 - Anthem
I don't really care for anything else on the list right now.
I'm hyped-up for Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Shadow of the Tomb Raider though. I'll be intersted to see where they place with the Allies but sense it won't be too high... :-\
RE: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (NS/WiiU)
I found the new shrines and gameplay content great but the story bits / cut scenes were lacking or at least felt like they really should have been in the main game / free.
The motorbike is cool but obviously you unlock it at the very end of the game where it's not much use as an actual way to travel around since most players will have unlocked most of the map and plenty of fast-travel points.
Overall I had fun and it was worth it but this wasn't amazing DLC.
RE: Games that incorporate sequence breaking in their design
Unlike the sequence breaking in Super Metroid which doesn't seem to be intended, Metroid Zero Mission had a fully planned and optional sequence-break where you can skip past Kraid and kill Ridley first which I really liked.
RE: Metroid: Samus Returns (3DS)
Given that AM2R was already my perfect remake of Metroid 2 and I'm not a big fan of the low-res 2.5D graphics I'm not as hyped on this as I should be.
I'll still buy it to support Metroid but I would rather they'd done something set post-Fusion and continue the story which has been at a stand-still for 15 years.
RE: Sonic Mania & Sonic Forces (PC/PS4/XB1/NSW)
Sonic Mania is looking amazing. I almost never pre-order things but I went and pre-purchased this immediately after this trailer (so as soon as the option became available).
Played it last year at EGX and the gameplay is perfect while all of the levels shown thus far have looked amazing.
This is also making me realise how much I miss Tails and Knuckles - they haven't been playable since the Sonic Advance games back in the early 2000s. :'-(
RE: Hollow Knight (PC/NS)
Sounds good - I've got my eye on it too but will wait until the game arrives on consoles. If you don't mind me asking, how to you feel it compares to the likes or Ori and Axiom Verge (plus Guacamelle / Shantae / Shadow Complex or any other recent metroiavanias you've played)?
RE: What's my next Metroidvania to be...? Outland or Dust: An Elysian Tail?
I'm wishing Dust was backwards compatible on the X-Bone but I could always boot up the old 360 for it... :-\
