The perfect podcast game. No big advancements here over the previous games in the series, but none were needed. One of the music tracks has a really grating noise in it, so it's fortunate that I usually play this while listening to something else.

That sure was Picross! I think I've got Picross fatigue from doing every single puzzle across 3 games this year, but it's nice mental stimulation for when I'm watching a show or YouTube video. (also I'm confused weren't they gonna add a dog in this one? 😕)

Color Picross is easily the best addition to this series.

It's picross babey! It's still great, I still didn't bother with mega picross because I don't find it quite as fun. The music for color picross fucking whips, actually, and I'm pretty sure this is the first game I've had with the full set of Extra Puzzles? Damn those are huge. I did kind of charge through them in one night but they're still kind of wild. Anyway good stuff. I do kind of find myself needing a puzzle game like this every now and then for enrichment, like how every so often zookeepers will give a lion a pumpkin full of meat.

It's much like the previous game in the series, and I like what it's doing, so that's fine by me. I prefer S3's music, though.
