    (Sorry for the double-post.  I was having trouble getting multiple quotes to show up in a single post.) 
    Cold Steel has nods to previous game but they are not essential to understanding the story.

    Finished Trails of Cold Steel a couple of days ago.  Based on my experience with Trails in the Sky and the fact that Trails of Cold Steel II is coming, I figured that the game would end on a major cliffhanger.  I was not prepared for how big that cliffhanger would be!  It propelled the sequel to being one my most anticipated games of the year.
    Also, I just finished Roundabout.  It plays a lot like Kuru Kuru Kururin but less polished.  Due to the graphical style and camera angles, there were times when it was hard for me tell if there was an obstacle in the way, a problem I do not recall having in Kuru Kuru Kururin.
    Decided to pick up Chibi-Robo Zip Lash and I am enjoying the game more than I thought I would.  I was put off by the level selection wheel at first but getting 1s is actually not that hard. (so far)

    This is a puzzle level in a ghost house.  I had this bizarre idea of having the Boos show off how fashionable they can be.

    Who are the people who don't like Yoshi's Woolly World? Because they are WRONG!
    Also I should correct Kevin by saying that Rhythm Heaven on the Wii has no motion controls outside the menu.

    This has been my most anticipated game of the year.  I already have the digital version pre-loaded and look forward to playing it when it is ready.

    The second game pretty much assumes that you know everything that happens in the first game. That includes all the major plot twists, how the characters develop, and even what happens in the side quests (depending on if you did them or not). You could jump into the second game if you want to but you will be completely lost on what is going on.

    This level is an auto-scroller where you are constantly chased by Bowser. The tools you have to fight back are limited but you can use the obstacles to avoid the attacks. This is a difficult stage, even if you find the hidden power-up, and I did a lot of refining to make sure that it felt right to play.

    I dare say that Trails in the Sky First + Second Chapters can be ranked alongside Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, and Suikoden II as the finest RPGs ever made.

    I just got the game a few days ago and took some time to make a level.  It is a simple level design-wise that involves a lot of Goombas and Pirahna Plants.

    I just beat the final boss and I have to say that I LOVE the game!  It came really close to matching the quality of the original game.  
    I have read about people complaining about the recycling of bosses.  What actually happens is that while the game does recycle boss characters, the fights themselves are different enough.  I actually appreciate that.
    The game starts out simple enough but as the game progresses, the levels have their own gimmicks that do not deviate from the formula but offer cool new ideas that the original game did not have.  Some of my favorites come from the haunted house levels, especially later in the game when it presented a new utility for the Boos which I was pleasantly surprised by.
    The one downside I noticed is that checkpoints in boss levels are not always placed next to the boss door, something that the original always had.
    Overall, I would say that of the games that have come out this year, Yoshi's Woolly World is a close contender for my Game of the Year. (doubt it will beat Splatoon though)

    I thought about giving more detailed opinions about this game but this method is way more interesting.
