Yeah. I've got an aggressive playstyle for the most part, too.
Though I try to be more careful in difficult games like La-Mulana 2 - especially what with the Tower of Oannes and its diabolical puzzling traps. :p

Wait--
Specter Knight can be unlocked in Shovel Knight?!
In Shovel Knight, you can play as Shovel Knight, Plague Knight, Specter Knight and King Knight. Each character has their own campaign and play style.

Games Progress
Completed Lunar Knights. I went back to Dark Castle Auguste, did some level grinding so both characters gained a level or so. I then returned to Planet Eater Byron and tried again. Second room was easier this time because I could deal more damage.

The next few rooms had their challenges but were easier. I also learnt that if you play as Aaron and you shoot at the Lizardman enemies while their iron ball is red, your shots will be deflected and you take damage from them. That rooms with the Pork Cannons and several Lizardmen also took a bit but thankfully you can heal afterward.

The final boss himself is no slouch. Polidori is Lv: 40 and has a wide variety of attacks.  Took me several tries to take him down, though after a few I decided to use my status points to boost my attack for both characters. His attacks deal a lot of damage (and it's pretty much a 1HKO if his vampire copies attack you) but there's a lot of variety to keep the fight interesting. My main strategy was to use Aaron to shoot at him and use Lucian if Aaron was KO'd or if I needed to avoid the vampire copies.

Polidori's battle theme is also far cooler than expected; it has these kickass guitar riffs mixed in with the ominous overtones.
The second part of the fight with the Laplace isn't too tough. I just used Ursula's missiles to destroy the eyes and deal damage to his head. Whenever he uses his sound waves, he can still be attacked and it also slows them down as well. Whenever he used his portals to summon rocks, I'd just use Alexander to avoid taking damage.

The ending cutscene uses this gorgeous watercolour art style and it's definitely better than the generic style used for the character portraits (though the anime cutscenes are pretty damn good though).
All in all, I've beaten the game so I'm considering trying my hand at clearing the Vambury Tower.

Decided to play Lunar Knights on Hard difficulty and kept my levels. It's a shame you can't skip the first two chapters (Bravely Second's New Game + let you pick which chapter to start from) though I'm on Chapter 3.

Vambury Tower basically has you fight enemies with a boss every 10 floors. The first 10 floors were easy. I've also learnt if you fall off the tower and you pay Sol, you have to start the whole thing over. The Beginner's Boots double EXP but disable Sol gain. I don't think I'll need those until I reach Dark Castle Auguste again.

Ö there's a Hard difficulty?! (And I've had trouble with the starting difficulty.)

Well, at least you don't have to pay EXP to start the tower all over again.

From my own experience, the game isn't too tough until you reach Armed Train Irving. That said, you do unlock Hard difficulty by beating the game once. Beating the game on Hard Mode unlocks Nightmare Mode.. As for the Boss Rush, all boss refights are Lv: 50 so I'm definitely not strong enough to take them on yet.

Thank goodness for that. I'll definitely need to level grind eventually once I reach the higher levels of Vambury Tower.

Already completed F11-20 in the Vambery Tower a few days back. I've tried and failed to complete F21-30 though both Lucian and Aaron are gaining more levels and a lot of money so maybe Vambery will be useful for level grinding on Hard/Nightmare difficulty.

I swear if Vambery Tower had an advertisement, it'd be a lot like Big Bill's Hell.

A few days ago, I finally decided to make the time to play Jak and Daxter. I don't care for the game's humour though the game is quite fun, kinda like Super Mario 64. Perhaps I'd enjoy that game if I ever tried it?

I continued with it yesterday. Completed Forbidden Jungle, Fire Mountain and Precursor Basin. Currently in the Lost Precursor City.

In regards to Jak and Daxter, the only areas I need to get Power Cells from are the Spider Cave, the Volcanic Crater and the final level. After this, I'll be playing Ratchet and Clank.

A few days back, I did a few more attempts at completing Floors 21-30 of Vambury Tower. Once I actually made it to the boss, I use the Trance mode and mistakenly end up using Ezra's Burst attack instead. I expected for me to screw up and get my ass handed to me by the boss there. Instead, the game just sends me to the next room. The prize there (Cursed Boots) are utterly useless.

Also completed Chapter 3 which was a cinch with my superior end-game power.

Lunar Knights (Vambery Tower): N/A
Blue Dragon Awakened Shadow: Downloaded a second copy onto my Silver R4 for the purpose of allowing my main copy to access the multiplayer mode (where you can refight all the game's bosses). After a few attempts to get past the opening (due to the game not loading due to some cheats I had on to speed the process up), I made. Unfortunately the lab isn't unlocked immediately so I have to play through a bit to unlock it. Unlike my first playthrough, I'll be using cheats to speed things up so I unlock what I need faster.

Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow: Completed the first quest, though I had to do it without cheats. Using the level up cheat got myself and the party from Level 1 to 7 though unfortuantely I wasn't allowed to cheat because after defeating the rat enemies, the game goes to the "can't read data" screen, forcing me to turn the game (and cheats) off and do it again.

At least the lab is now available though I'll need to find a way to set up Nintendo Wi-Fi because it went down years ago.
Might also see if the EXP cheats work when a dungeon doesn't have story cutscenes going on. The game doesn't seem to play nice with cheats on during story events.

Decided to play Feel the Magic XY/XX and made it to Scene 14. The minigame system is different in that you need to fill the heart meter to 100 points before moving onto the next scene. Which unlike the sequel means you can skip the minigames you find frustrating in favour of the ones that aren't.

Completed Feel the Magic XY/XX on Normal difficulty so Hard Mode is unlocked. Nightmare is a boss rush level in the story mode yet the bosses are separate mini-games. The game is also shorter than Rub Rabbits, which I consider to be better than this game.

Tried to play Ratchet and Clank 2 but the intro took a while and it wasn't loading past the opening cutscene. Tried to clean it with toothpaste and warm water. For the most part, it worked because the intro didn't take as long but I still couldn't get past the opening cutscene. Deleted the save data for Sonic Advance 3 and completed Route 99.

I'm going to try and clean Ratchet and Clank 2 again. Hopefully the disc will work this time.

Decided to clean Ratchet and Clank 2 with toothpaste and left it overnight before cleaning it. The pre-title logo now loads much faster, taking only a few seconds. Still can't get past the opening cutscene.

Still no actual progress. Decided to clean Rachet and Clank 2 with deodorant and pulling out one of the wires on the back of the PS2 and putting it back in. Managed to get past the black screen only after the intro cutscene only to make it to an infinitely looping loading screen. God **** damnit.
