 Hey everyone. Sorry, there's no QWednesday this week--I'm not doing too well at the moment so I'm really tired. But I wanted to make a "free space" kind of post in the hopes that it'll spark conversation anyway. Feel free to ask questions, gripe about where you're stuck, post silly screenshots, anything!

And there's always the eternal question: What are you playing right now? (You can always ignore this if you're not playing anything or you don't want to talk about it.)

Hi everyone! It's a little late where I am right now, but I'm still on time for this week's QWednesday post! Since Mario Maker is coming out Friday and I'm really excited for it, I've preloaded it so it'll run once midnight hits! Which brings me to this week's question: Have you ever been so excited for a game you bought it at midnight (or as early as possible)? Which game was it? What was your experience like?

And, as always, what are you playing right now?

Sorry for missing last week! Here's a question for this week, though...

I've been thinking lately about licensed games, usually made as tie-ins to existing movie or TV show franchises, such as Chronicles of Riddick or Mickey Mouse Mousecapades etc. When I was growing up I remember thinking thay they were all really poor cash-in attempts, but even nowadays I have to admit that McDonald's Treasureland is absolutely amazing. Do you have any memories of licensed games that took you by surprise, whether in a good or bad way?

And, as always, what are you playing right now?

So it turns out that Sega brought a mobile installment of their well-known puzzle series, Puyo Puyo, to the West! But it's been localized as Cranky Food Friends and has all of the classic Puyo art removed, making some people very upset. This isn't even the first time Puyo Puyo has been completely rebrandd overseas, either--back in the '90s, it was reskinned as both Kirby's Avalanche and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine!

This used to happen a lot, so I'm curious about which bizarre rebrands are your most and least favorites. Which games do you think benefited from being drastically changed from one region to another? Which didn't? (This can include difficulty changes, art style/character design changes, changing sensitive content, etc.)

And, as always, What are you playing right now?

 Hi everyone! Sorry I missed last week--I was on vacation. 

The news that there's going to be a Resident Evil 2 remake has me over the moon right now! RE2 is one of my favorite games, and I think that Resident Evil HD Remastered is a masterpiece, so I'm really thrilled. So, thinking about remasters and remakes: What do you think makes a good remake vs. a poor one? What remakes, if any, have you enjoyed, or not enjoyed at all?

And, as always, what are you playing at the moment?

 Hey everyone! I'm going to be on vacation next week so there miiiight not be a QWednesday then, but I'll do my best to get one up anyway. Just a heads up.

This week's question has a little bit in common with last week's. Are there any games you like to play more than once, on a regular or semi-regular basis? If so, what are they? And, as always: What are you playing right now?

Sorry I missed last week, it completely slipped my mind! I'm setting myself reminders to keep up on QWednesdays though. 

This week's icebreaker is kind of a your-mileage-may-vary question, but here goes: do you have any "therapy games?" That is, are there any games/genres that you like to curl up with when you're feeling down, or help you burn off stress? And, as always, what are you playing right now?

Hi, everyone! I'm so pleased with how [community profile] rainbowgames has been growing and how welcoming y'all have been! To encourage discussion and act as an icebreaker, I'll post a question or two every Wednesday that you can answer in the comments.

The first is an easy one, and one that I'll probably include every week: What are you currently playing? (if the answer is "nothing," that's fine too, you can skip this one if you want.)

The second is: Do you have (or have you had in the past) any "Holy Grail" games, that you've never been able to play or own but you've always wanted to? If so, what are they? I'm really curious to see the answers to this one!
