TheMasterDS played Yooka-Laylee
This is a pale imitation of the 3D platformers of old. The problems are hard to pin down, perhaps it's because the worlds are large, messy, directionless and hard to navigate around. Perhaps the move set of the eponymous duo requiring platforms that are so far apart that there's no interesting paths to traverse is part of it. Maybe the annoying swarming enemies don't help. End of the day, collecting Pagies was like pulling teeth. Each was hard to find and annoying to actually get. That's bad!

TheMasterDS played Persona 5
When you're a 100 hour game you want to be about this hard to put down. There's a lot to love here from dungeons that are more involved than in previous games to the overhauled confidant system that gives you lots of valuable bonuses. From the killer amount of style to the simple pleasure of hanging out in a well realized Tokyo. It's all extremely polished and has great characters, great flavor, sublime music and a lovely core fantasy of thwarting corrupt adults. It's worth seeing through! <3

TheMasterDS played Snake Pass
Slithering around and climbing through jungle gyms of worlds is a very novel idea for a video game, however in practice it leaves a bit wanting. The biggest issue comes down to just simply the length of levels, which are so long and you can't save in the middle one so you're stuck between a rock and a hard place if you want to play something else and not lose progress. Still, the unique traversal controls work very well and slowly working your way up the terrain is pretty rewarding if slow.

TheMasterDS played Typeshift
A well designed word game that's simple but satisfying. It's fun to fiddle around with the possible letters and deduce words. This colors in letters narrowing down what you're looking for - words that satisfying what fewer and fewer letters remain. It's a very neat design, especially when you get Clue Puzzles, which have crossword puzzle like hints to help you along which adds to things nicely. It's a shame you can only buy Clue Puzzles in packs and there aren't free daily ones to keep you busy.

TheMasterDS played Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together!
While short, this highly amusing coop experience is very, well, amusing. The simple yet zany puzzles work really well taking just the right amount of coordination while not being particularly hard. The simplicity is especially well suited to playing with a single joycon per player, which was brand new at the time and in need of games like this that showed off how useful it could be. Basically, this was an amusing novelty that came out at the perfect time.
