I bought Super Mario Maker recently. Honestly, I have conflicting feelings about this game. On the one hand, I wanted to make my own Mario levels when I was a kid; I used to even draw level layouts at school. The closest thing I had to a Mario level editor back then was Mario Paint, which obviously wasn't a level editor. On the other hand, it's hard for me to look at Mario Maker without some form of cynicism, considering I've been able to create my own Mario levels for ages now with freeware programs like Lunar Magic and Super Mario Bros. X. Most of these programs also boast far more impressive features than Mario Maker. I think it's good that Nintendo finally made an official editor themselves, but they're a bit late to the party on this one.

Show me your Mario Maker.

I spent the last few days finishing up Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The gameplay is top notch in this one, but there were a few things that bugged me. For one, you're forced to repeat some missions with certain stipulations in order to progress the main story, which is blatant padding. Secondly, the story is pretty underwhelming. The intro is great and there are a few other good scenes throughout the game, but I'm not too impressed otherwise. Almost all of the plot is delivered through audiotapes and a large majority of the main missions contain little to no story, acting mostly as filler. The big twist at the end also sucked. I'm fine with the story taking a backseat to gameplay, but all the filler and padding really annoyed me. MGSV is good, but it needs to trim the fat.
