[Let’s Talk] Pokemon Legends: Arceus impressions

Posted on January 29, 2022 by (@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk, Switch

We only just received a major Pokemon release on Switch with Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl back in November, but another major title has now arrived with Pokemon Legends: Arceus. This is the latest project from Game Freak, the developer of the mainline Pokemon titles. The company has been tinkering away on Arceus while ILCA made Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

While the launch of Pokemon Legends: Arceus only took place yesterday, it’s likely that a number of you picked up the game and have played a number of hours already. If you’ve played it at all, what are your thoughts thus far? Let us know in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: Your favorite Kirby game


As much as I’d like to pick a single favorite, I have two in mind because I don’t really think they compare.

Kirby Superstar Ultra for the DS was the best version of the original SNES game. That added more modes, bosses, and really polished the sprites. One of the best in my opinion. The Meta Knight campaign where Galacta Knight first came to be was a blast.

Now for I game I always come back to, it would be Kirby’s Air Ride for the GameCube. Before the announcement of Kirby And The Forgotten Land, Air Ride was the only 3D Kirby game. Albeit, it’s a racing game, you could actually free roam as Kirby with friends in a mode called City Trail, which was basically a sandbox. I still play it today.


I loved the Great Cave Offensive, so I have to say Kirby Super Star


Dream Course. But if you mean platformer, then I’d say it’s gotta be Epic Yarn. I haven’t played every Kirby game, I’ve played maybe 10 of them, and I enjoyed all of them to at least some extent. Great series. Without the Kirby franchise, we wouldn’t have gotten BoxBoy, which is legit my favorite game that doesn’t have Zelda in the title. 🙂


Kirby Squeak Squad, for having the best Kirby Gameplay with that difficulties I love. Kirby Star Allies then Kirby DreamLand III& Kirby’s Amazing Mirror.

I would like to say my favorite overall Kirby game, but the problem with me is that Super Star (SNES), Return to Dream Land, and Triple Deluxe are fighting for that spot for me because I amazingly enjoyed them equally, mainly for their expanded Copy Ability movesets and overall fun factor (as well as their Arena modes’ bosses being randomly-ordered as opposed to fixed in most of the other mainline games).

Personal runner-up for me would be Star Allies, if only for bringing back the old characters and somehow managing to make the already-amazing Super Star gameplay even better, as well as reviving the three-helper system from the cancelled Kirby GCN game. Sure, the game was “too easy” (even though the mainline series fall in the same hole in that department for me), but I wanted to have fun and that’s what Star Allies gave me in the end.


Kirby 64. That game just has a particular charm that really appeals to me.
