Okay thanks to Devo "Devilbin" Drevin I'm starting a progress log ("Dear Log...") on this one, now that it's over a year later and no one cares and for lack of a better place to post this - maaaybe the Gaming Goals thread? Nah, too much for that thread; don't ruin a good thing.
So right off the bat I should say I only started playing this thing because of a) my morbid curiosity b) Yoshi's Island SNES being one of my all time favourite games c) sadism and d) Mr. Devo Man Devin gifted this to me for for free after I requested it... aaaand he did warn me so don't say 'some friend!'
Anyway this will be my progress log, not a game review.
First things first, that stork is such a lunk-headed moron. He is entrusted with the Mario Bros AGAIN and takes them to the wrong house?!! He has no sense of direction and then when Kamek's henchmen ambush him he is defenseless and let's the babies go to the slaughterhouse like what?
Anyway this game is quite nice looking in motion, way better that any of the ugly screen shots made it look, BUT even though there's lots of charm I miss the personality that the SNES game brought with it's pastel-like painting worlds. Also Yoshi looks rather derpy with his huge-ass shoes. Speaking of huge, it seems as if they are trying out that whole Gigantism thing Mario tinkered with New Super Mario Bros but it just doesn't seem quite as good here. Yet. We'll see. Maybe there's potential.
Also this music blows. I don't remember the SNES music that well but the one's I do seemed A-OK and this is brutal.
The little mini-games with the cars that I used to look forward to in Yoshi's Island have tilt controls here and I never liked those on DS/3DS games. AT ALL. So these levels, while okay now, are gonna be real grating. Which makes me think that the New in Yoshi's New Island kind of just means everything's the same but the different parts which aren't necessarily better and are mos def worse are the 'new'.. grrrrrreat. At least New Super Mario Bros the new was usually cool.
1-7 - Okay Super Yoshi is awesome, possibly better than Super Baby Mario, that was real fun
Also after some deliberation I realize there's a delay more prominent when you pull out your egg to shoot and also producing (a.k.a. pooping) said egg.
1-8 - Wow a new enemy?! And it's... a.... bean. Wow, so glad I held out for a new enemy :/ :/
World 2 coming tomorrow/today, actually.
