Beat 7th Dragon 2020 (and am disappointed that there's no sound test). Post-game area in progress...

Beat Tales of the World - Radiant Mythology 3 (and am puzzled by there being AT LEAST two Kanonno characters). Several inaccessible areas still remain. :-/

Beat the Tower of Hera and House of Gales' bosses in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.
(Yuga is a bad guy... if I kill him, will I be killing Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS' Yuga by proxy? Probably not...)

Completed Bujingai (the final level is **** awful and completely jarring in terms of difficulty) and Zone of the Enders (which is good for what it is and disappointingly short). Currently playing Zone of the Enders: 2nd Runner and wow, it's so much better than the previous game.

Managed to defeat Sonic Generations (3DS) boss, the Time Eater, with only one ring left... whew, that was a tough boss.

Also beat 7th Dragon 2020 (PSP) bonus boss, Dragoner Takahaya. Won, and loving the battle theme, but... why no sound test? ;-;
(I wanna listen to the battle theme against them SKY people like Neiko... :( )

...

Right. Not sure what to do next... think I'll play FF Tactics (PSP) and stuff.
(Thank you, ESKOM, for stopping load-shedding for now!)

I remember at the time that Time Eater was pretty tough (mostly the attack where you have to dash through several clocks). That said, I beat Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner. Anubis was pretty tough but I managed to take him down. His second form is somewhat easier and most of is just me pressing the Circle button to spam the everloving **** out of 0 Shift (so I can teleport).

The clock-dash was the easy part to me. The hardest part was the whole "dodge Time Eater hands".

Time doesn't taste all that good, anyway... tastes like... something indescribable; you could stun all of Hyrule, Lorule, and Midrule all at once. :p

Currently playing TLoZ: A Link Between Worlds (Ice Ruins boss), Tales of the World - Radiant Mythology 3 (trying to figure out what's with the other still-inaccessible areas despite having won the game), and (as always) New Style Boutique 3 and Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution (where I took 8900 points of battle damage from Soulburner's "Salamangreat" fusion monster... and it attacked my 2000 ATK monster!).

Yeah... reverse duels ain't easy. May need Destiny Board + Exodia. :p

Been playing through Omori. I'm about 17 hours in and nowhere close to the end yet.

There are aspects of it that I really like. The story is quite cool and the music and art are great. The follow-up action and emotion mechanics add a lot of strategy to the JRPG combat and stop it from getting too tedious.

My biggest problem is that there's an insane amount of padding. There are literally dozens of crappy fetch quests, and there are many, many unskippable cutscenes that consist entirely of boring dialogue. It's like the game goes out of its way to waste my time.

For the most part, I think I like Deltarune better.

Dealing with Time Eater's hands once he's down to 2 HP is the worst because of how frequently it happens. That and they look like bars of soap.

Crappy fetch quests and unskippable cutscenes you say? Sounds like the Lost Sanctum in Chrono Trigger DS. That dungeon also had backtracking, lazy bosses and a dungeon which is a recoloured version of an earlier one. One cave area has the Ocean Palace theme and only for that area (thankfully the main track wasn't wasted).

Bars of soap? I think CS Balrog was based on one, rather than a toaster...

Quote from: Balrog
I AM NOT A TOASTER!!!

I like the Ocean Palace theme. :3
Never started with the Lost Sanctum, though... I mean. I did finish CTDS, but beating that Dream Devourer was tough. ... What was I dreaming, again?

Anyway. I think I'll get lost in the Lost Sanctum anyway, so I'll just listen to music instead. :p

CT had some pretty great songs, though I wish "Battle 2" got more use than it did...

It's probably the circular shape or the texture.

Ocean Palace is great but so is Black Omen. I've done the Lost Sanctum and the weapons are worth the sidequests. I also liked the Nu bosses and it's a shame Chrono Trigger never had a boss rematch mode. Though personally, the Dimensional Vortexes were better. Also Battle 2 was only used in the Monster Arenas but I'm not sure if ever caught on.

Got the true ending in Unsighted. I have a lot of mixed feelings about this game.

The combat is awesome, it has similarities with games like Dead Cells and Scourgebringer, but with even more of an emphasis on patience and defence -- most of the time it's about waiting for the right moment to counter particular enemy attacks until the enemy is made vulnerable and can be punished for high damage. Of course, one can attack at other times, but it's less effective.


The platforming isn't awesome -- both the controls and the graphics really are not built for platforming. The jumps are glorified dodge-rolls that follow awkward rigid arcs. The game has a 3D world made with 2D graphics, in such a way that it's impossible to know what height something is just by looking at it.

The way the world is put together is really annoying. There are artificial one-way barriers everywhere that aren't visible on the map and often seem to be placed haphazardly with no sensible reason to be there, so the world is a pain to navigate. This gets even worse in the dungeons, where there might be like 6 different paths available but only one of them will actually lead to something you can do at the moment. Some of the dungeons can be kind of broken by skipping large sections of them using items you're not supposed to have yet, but that doesn't always work. I never want to do the bloody Factory ever again.

I enjoyed my 2nd playthrough a lot more than the 1st playthrough, because you can use everything you learned from the first time around to play the game in a totally new way. There are enemies called "Shadow Creatures" that one is led to believe can't be killed until the endgame, but they can in fact be fought right from the beginning. There is a crafting system which I originally thought was bloated and unnecessary -- there's a Minecraft-style crafting grid, except it's a waste of time because you need to find crafting recipes in the world first, and that's also a waste a time because crafting materials are extremely common and pretty quickly have enough to craft anything you could ever want, so it would make more sense to just find the thing directly out in the world rather than a recipe for the thing. However, using the manual crafting grid, you don't actually need to unlock the recipes if you've already memorised them, letting you get stuff way earlier than you're supposed to.


On my 2nd playthrough I tried to beat the 5 main bosses needed to unlock the endgame in the opposite order -- not only is that possible, but the game gave me an achievement for that. On my 3rd playthrough, I left Downtown during the prologue and beat the entire Factory before returning to finish the prologue. The game gave me an achievement for that too.


I originally assumed that the true ending is unlocked by saving everyone, but nope, that just gets you the normal ending again. I had to look up how to get the true ending and the requirements were a long list of crazy stuff, most of which I had no idea existed.

The bosses are mostly quite awesome, with a few exceptions. There's one right at the end that just copies all of the abilities of the other bosses which I thought was lame. It has a second phase which is the same as the first phase except there are two of it, which doesn't work well because the bosses it copies aren't designed for that and don't play nice with each other. All three of the bonus bosses, while better designed than that one, were a bit disappointing -- one of them was pretty cool but I was way too powerful by the time I found it and it went down really fast, whereas the other two were basically just upgraded versions of earlier bosses.


The game has lots of cool moments but the bad parts are too annoying to be worth playing again, unless maybe I give hard mode a try.

Everyone else has their own gaming threads so I will take over the main gaming thread >:3

I bought Spiritfarer which is supposed to be really great but I couldn't get into it. It's certainly gorgeous looking, I love the artstyle. Dealing with the lost spirits' bizarre dietary requirements is already becoming quite a chore and I only have a few of them so far.

Rotund Rebound came out last week -- I got sent an early version of this about 2 years ago, and the finished version has been polished up nicely. I've been enjoying it. Level 4-8 is a huge difficulty spike T_T

Janitor Bleeds also came out last week. Haven't gotten very far in it yet, and it's not the kind of thing I usually play but it's alright so far. I like how it messes with my expectations -- when the red square thing attacked me in the vents, it came completely out of nowhere because I was convinced the vents were safe.

Huh, I remember seeing a cyberpunk styled game where you could play as a cat. I'm not sure if that's the same game or a different one.
