Get on it! I'm having flashbacks to playing Chrono Trigger for the first time.

I just finished the second part of the Octopath demo with the dancer, Primrose. I am so freaking excited for this game! It has a more serious and mature tone than most RPGs I've played, and I said it before, but I love the voice acting and music. I can't wait to hear a release date.

So sorry Scott, I know you were working your butt off to be able to make it. This stinks. I know it's small consolation, but you can take pride in the fact that you worked your way to getting consistent times as good or better than the best players out there, especially when you just started trying.

All I can think of is Metroid, Zero Time Dilemma, and possibly Stella Glow. I loved the first two Zero Escape games, and I had my eye on Stella Glow a while back but never pulled the trigger.

Doom was freaking great. I loved every second of it. Getting that and Wolfenstein is a huge win for Nintendo.

I downloaded the Octopath demo late last night and played it for just a few minutes. I absolutely adore the aesthetic of this game; I've been eagerly anticipating more news on it since they first showed it off. So far so good. The voice acting is quite good, and the whole presentation is slick. I hardly did any gameplay because I was ready to pass out, but I'll be diving in deeper tonight and/or this weekend.

All right, here goes. Your annual post-draft recap. As always, remember that this is just for fun and not to be offended if I don't like your team. I'm usually wrong (except about bonham, he's always bad), so you can enjoy sticking it to me if you do well when I picked you to tank. Without further ado...

Jan-Michael Vincents

This team took the #1 pick and ran with it. He has a nasty backfield, with David Johnson and Isaiah Crowell, yet didn't suffer in other areas, as he has two great receivers in Amari Cooper and Martavis Bryant, and a top tight end in Jordan Reed. I like the gamble on Andrew Luck, because if he comes back healthy he's always an elite fantasy quarterback. I don't know what to make of Amendola, but Tyrell Williams and Desean Jackson should be more than capable of taking that third WR and/or Flex spot. If one of his backs get hurt, there's not much depth there, but this is a really good team.

More Than a Thielen

Past history has shown that you need great running backs to win this league, so that was my focus in this draft. Between Le'veon Bell, Kareem Hunt, and Lamar Miller, I think I have the best backs in the league. Bell is a freak, Hunt has gotten rave reviews (and Andy Reid's backs are always fantasy gold), and Miller has a really high floor. I like Kirk Cousins to be really good with even more weapons at his disposal now. My receivers are the big question mark, though. I don't have a true WR1, and that may hurt me at some point. I do think that I have five good receivers, just not a great one. If push comes to shove I may have to swing a deal to get a top pass catcher. I like Tyler Eifert, but he needs to stay healthy, which for some reason is a problem with most of the top tight ends (Gronk, Reed). I think as long as my running backs stay healthy, I'll be a playoff team.

Bat

Bat has the always terrifying Aaron Rodgers-Jordy Nelson combo, and in some weeks that will be enough to win on its own. I worry that the rest of the roster may have trouble keeping up, though. His two rookie running backs have high expectations, but I expect it to take a while for Mixon to be a fantasy stud due to Cincy's crowded backfield, and McCaffrey should be good, but more of a PPR asset. The only other back on this roster is Theo Riddick, another guy who does his best work in a PPR format. I don't know if Kenny Britt or Chris Hogan are going to be usable fantasy starters, and right now they're the #2 and #3 receivers on this team. Greg Olsen is always dependable, but this team either needs to make a move or hope that both its rookie runners are monsters right out of the gate.

maddawg

Maddawg placed an emphasis on the running back position, and still got Antonio Brown to boot. I don't know that any of his runners are a sure thing, but I think they'll all be very good. Ty Montgomery was fantastic last year, and you know Green Bay will score. I saw a lot of Dalvin Cook in college, and I think he's going to be a stud. Todd Gurley was brutal last year, but I think that was more a product of Jared Goff being horrendous. Goff is a year older now, and Sean McVay, the Rams' new coach, is supposed to be a sharp offensive mind. I expect things to open up more for Gurley, because he definitely has the talent to be a beast. Russell Wilson is kind of up-and-down as a fantasy guy- I like him more in real life. Jack Doyle should be solid when Andrew Luck comes back, and even before then since Scott Tolzien will probably be dinking and dunking. Maddawg needs a little bit of receiver help, at least in Week 1 since Jarvis Landry's game is postponed and Willie Snead is suspended.

Peyton Manning #1

This team has the potential to be really good. The Matt Ryan-Julio Jones connection is undeniable, and Larry Fitzgerald is always great. I've been hearing really good things about Pierre Garcon, and Gronk is an animal when healthy. I could see things not working out for any number of this team's running backs, but odds are one or two of the will be solid. I'm not as high on Leonard Fournette as most. I see a lot of 25 carry, 75 yard, zero touchdown games for him with Blake Bortles mucking things up. Put him on a good team and he'd destroy people. C.J. Anderson is a good value, but the Broncos are going to be in a lot of low-scoring games, which worries me. Bilal Powell has the potential to be huge, but Matt Forte is healthy and the Jets are a dumpster fire, so his stock could go either way. Still, this team will be a factor unless everything goes wrong.

Slim

I know Slim wasn't able to make the draft this year, and unfortunately it shows. Calling his running back situation dire is a kind way to put it, with Ameer Abdullah, Tevin Coleman, and Robert Turbin (?!) as the only options. Odell Beckham may not play Week 1, but he'll be fine after that. The receiving corps is actually quite good, with Doug Baldwin, Jamison Crowder, and Terrell Pryor all projected to be very good, though it's a little weird to have Crowder and Pryor together. Philip Rivers is always dependable, and I love Travis Kelce's ability, but Kansas City's style prevents him from really breaking out. He could be Gronk in the right spot.

Head Shot

I'm torn on Head Shot's team. He usually does really well in this league (despite me usually picking him to finish in 6th or 7th, ha!), but I think he has a lot of question marks this year. LeSean McCoy is going to be great, but Rob Kelley as the #2 running back is kind of dicey. I feel like his receivers sound better on paper than they'll actually be. Brandin Cooks could be a monster, but New England spreads it all around. I could see him having some huge games and some duds. DeAndre Hopkins disappointed last year, but I think he'll bounce back. Same for Allen Robinson, though I don't expect anything like the breakout he had in 2015. Ben Roethlisberger is another guy that sounds better than he is at this point. I remember seeing his home-road splits, and on the road he's just ghastly for some reason. I thought Coby Fleener would be really good last year, and he was invisible. Maybe it just took him a year to get acclimated in New Orleans, but I don't know. Prove me wrong again, Head Shot!

Bonham2

It wouldn't be a draft recap without me ripping Bonham's team, so here goes. Jay Ajayi should be really good again, but behind him, this is a backfield that I don't think you can depend on. Adrian Peterson could be huge, but he could be an aging afterthought. Eddie Lacy is part of I think a nine-man committee in Seattle, and LeGarrette Blount is no longer benefiting from Tom Brady's largesse. Frank Gore will outlive us all and will probably be the second best back on this team. Brady of course will be god-like, and I think Jimmy Graham is going to have a big year. I wouldn't be shocked if he ends up as the #1 tight end. Dez Bryant, though I've loved him in the past, just doesn't excite me this year. He didn't really light it up with Dak Prescott last year, so I'll be interested to see if they improve their chemistry (and if Dez can stay healthy finally). Kelvin Benjamin should be solid if not spectacular, and I actually like John Brown's chances for some big games, but I don't think you'll be able to depends on him week in and week out.

Stiff Cliff

Stiff Cliff took a gamble on Ezekiel Elliott early, but he locked up Darren McFadden, so either way he'll reap the rewards of Dallas' superb running game. We have another QB-WR combo here, with Drew Brees and Michael Thomas (who I love this year) pouring on points. Alshon Jeffrey could be really good as the new top man in Philly, and I really like DeVante Parker as Cliff's third wideout. Doug Martin could be a sneaky good guy when he returns from suspension, as I expect that Bucs offense to be potent. I want to like Hunter Henry, but as long as Antonio Gates is still babysitting Philip Rivers' 30 kids, I can't trust him. Terrence West- love the name, but I think I'd rather have Woodhead in that backfield. I actually like Duke Johnson, though much more in PPR than our format.

Ufcchamp

This team strikes me as being one that will be right in the middle of the pack all year. Mike Evans, T.Y. Hilton (when Luck comes back), and Golden Tate are a really nice trio. Devonta Freeman should be excellent again, and I think Beast Mode will be rejuvenated. But after that... ehhhhh. Jonathan Stewart is the only other running back on this team with even a hint of value. Sammy Watkins isn't going to do anything with Jared Goff throwing him the ball (and he can't stay healthy anyway), and Kevin White should get ample opportunity with Cameron Meredith dead, but I'm not convinced he's any good, and he's the least healthy person in football. Zach Ertz should have a really good year, but I don't trust Cam (2015 notwithstanding).

Super Mario-ta

I like the early commitment to the run shown by Super Mario-ta, with Melvin Gordon and Jordan Howard exploding onto the scene last year. I can't put my finger on it, but I don't trust Howard to do it again. Gordon will be huge with Danny Woodhead out of town. I really like Marcus Mariota, but I haven't completely come around to him being a fantasy stud yet. I need to see a full year of it. Keenan Allen could be an All-Pro if he could just stay healthy. As a Bears fan, I hate Davante Adams, but he'll be good by default with Aaron Rodgers throwing passes to him and Randall Cobb as a shell of his former self. Delanie Walker is always dependable, and Robby Anderson has a chance to be a sneaky fantasy asset with the Jets probably needing to throw it 60 times a game because they'll always be down. I feel like Paul Perkins should be good, but when was the last time the Giants had a good fantasy running back, Tiki Barber? I don't know, if Mariota is great, he'll take this team with him, but I'm skeptical.

Scots

Considering he had the 12th pick in the draft, I thought Scots consistently found good value round after round. A.J. Green and Demaryius Thomas are great even at their worst, DeMarco Murray and Carlos Hyde are a stellar tandem, and Kyle Rudolph is solid. Everyone is overlooking Brandon Marshall this year, but he should certainly be great as a flex guy, and I love Stefon Diggs, too. Nobody seems to care about Derek Carr in fantasy, but I expect Oakland to light it up, so it stands to reason that he'll be the main reason. Scots did what I like to do and took fliers on a lot of running back lottery tickets late in the draft. If even one guy comes through, it will have been worth it. This is a really well-rounded team.

Sorry it's later than usual, but I'm working on my post-draft review now! Brady, Gronk, Hunt, Hill, and Kelce should all be great as long as they're healthy, so this game won't change my thinking.

L.A. Noire was really good. I played it on PS3.

As for my library, I traded Zelda, Mario Kart, and Puyo Puyo to GameStop and got more than what I paid for them, so all I've got is:

I'm going to try and do my annual write-up late tonight- I actually did the draft from a FedEx truck last night and today isn't looking a whole lot better. Definitely seemed like a solid draft, but I haven't checked out everyone's teams just yet.

Unfortunately Yahoo doesn't do it until 15 minutes before the draft. I think we could do it ourselves and then input a custom order, but I've got an insane day of work that won't see me home until within an hour of the draft anyway, so I don't think I could find a spot to do that. I'm looking forward to tonight, though!

Well when I made it 7:45 Eastern, 8 o'clock wasn't available. But looking now, 8 is available, so I changed it to 8 Eastern, just 15 minutes later than before. That should hopefully work for everyone.

I think they all hold up. I hope the fact that we're getting the Samus Returns remake and Metroid Prime 4 means that we can count on a steady dose of Samus going forward. Hopefully they sell the hell out of them.

I'll say that Super Metroid and Metroid Prime are both deserving of the top spot, they're incredible games, but I'm giving the nod to Super Metroid because I think it's more replayable.

1. Super Metroid
2. Metroid Prime
3. Metroid Zero Mission
4. Metroid Fusion
5. Metroid Prime 3
6. Metroid Prime 2
7. Metroid (NES)

Only played a little bit of Other M and didn't think it felt like a Metroid game. Never played Return of Samus, which is part of why I'm so excited for the remake. Never played and don't care to play offshoots like Federation Force and Metroid Pinball.

Even though the original Metroid is seventh on my list, it's still a great game, even today. All of the core Metroid games have been pure quality.

Doesn't mean much, it just goes up when you win and down when you lose. If you beat a team with a much higher ranking you go up a lot, but if you lose to that same team you don't go down much. It's just fun to see what you can get to.

Team Flight with the win! That was close. After my 8-6 start, I was on fire last night. I ended up 27-11, with ten wins in a row and 16 out of my last 17. Got up to Flight King rank then called it a night. Splat power was 1971.

I bought it too, should be here in a couple days. My little guy loses his mind when he sees the videos of it, so this will be my first try at playing a game together. I'm gonna give him the Super Nintendo controller that Prime sent him when he was born and see if he likes it.

The collectibles were pretty easy to find thanks to the map I bought right away. Did you get that? Even knowing where they were, it was still fun because you usually had to fight something off or figure out how to reach a tricky area to get them.

I didn't look at the trophy list until pretty late in the game, and since I was so far along I figured I'd go for the platinum. I looked up the training dummy locations since I hadn't paid any attention to them, but other than that nothing was too rough.
