  1. QotW: Does the Cowabunga Collection count as an entire collection of Remasters? Cause if so, that’d have to be mine.
    If I have to narrow it down further, the SNES version of Turtles in Time.

  2. Tactics Ogre Reborn is the one remake this year I got really into. My favorite changes are quality of life improvements that save you on busy work. Skill requirements for equipment have been eased up, crafting doesn’t have a chance to fail anymore, and fallen allies have a few turns to be revived before they face permadeath. I personally like that middle ground because I typically restart a mission in permadeath games without the feature, but will accept the death if I have time to revive and still fail. The enemy AI has been made a lot better too which makes the game way more engaging. This is the definitive version of an excellent experience.

  3. QotW: Pac-Man World Repac-ed. Enjoyed an old fashioned 90s platformer showing up on the Switch. to fill the void after beating Frogun.
