Y'know, even Metroid Prime was probably a risk too. Like, a 3D Metroid? That's crazy. And now it's a normal part of the Metroids.

I beat the 2nd world of Wario World. Boy, was the second level of it rough. But it was a circus themed level so I kinda like it.
The World 2 boss l, Dual Dragon, was not good. The boss's attacks just kinda happened, and I ending up getting a bunch of game overs. Thankfully, I had a billion monies so I could just continue playing badly.
Something goes here sometime.

Almost finished up with my second playthrough of Sekiro. Doing all of the bosses I missed in my first playthrough, or... at least the ones that I can do in a single playthrough. Cause this game is oddly unique from the rest of the Soulsborne (what is that word now, Sekiroulsborne?) games in that depending on the path you take you can get access to different bosses.

So I'm still playing Warframe and I'm still playing Baba is You (more on that another time)

But I've gotten back into a game I was a big fan of 12 years ago

Got my second ending in Sekiro. Also killed the optional bosses this time around. And got almost all of the prayer beads except one I missed and it became unavailable by the time I realized it, and a couple you can only get through a different ending.

I beat Persona 2: Eternal Punishment (The PS1 version) today, so that means now I've beaten every mainline Persona game at least once. I liked it a lot, even if it is a little dated but it's not too bad. I don't think I'll do the bonus dungeon but perhaps someday when I have nothing better to do I will. The music is quite good for the most part. I prefer Innocent Sin's regular battle and boss themes and the final boss music is really good

for pummeling Nyarlathotep a second time. Kinda lame it's the same in both games though

. Now to wait for the PSP version translation patch.

i restarted tales of phantasia because i'm using mednafen now for ps1 bullshit because fast forwarding also pcsxr (and epsxe for that matter) is an unstable fuck and also not that accurate and i made it to the cless and arche dogfight scene in the span of like three days (roughly 10 hours)

i keep getting pwned with facts and logic by sky!ishrantu

Yoshi's Crafted World continues the fine tradition of not having two Yoshi games in a row have a good soundtrack. It's passable in spots, downright disastrous in others. The game itself is fine, but I don't think the quality is near what they did with Woolly World at all, and that's kind of a bummer.

Finished NG+ in Sekiro. There were some pretty damn tough fights there. Including one I did for my first time because I went for one of the alternate endings that gives you an additional boss fight.

Speaking of, boy oh boy does it seem like they really didn't want anyone finding these alternate endings on their own. The list of steps is difficult to do even with a tutorial because people are having difficulties even figuring out what triggers certain events. So tutorials will get to a part where it's like "and idk, talk to this person a bunch and maybe rest at the idol to reset the world and maybe it'll eventually work." It's probably the worst thing about this game.

I'm close to getting the Platinum Trophy in DQXI now. All that's left is to

defeat the final final boss

, get everyone to max level, and get the Crossbow Colossus trophy.

I also beat the 3rd world of Wario World. Shivering Mountain was not very fun to explore, but the stage boss was pretty interesting.
Beanstalk Way, however, was very nice to explore and a bit more open in its progression.
The 2nd stage boss was a spider that was just a bit too real looking in parts of its design. So that was not fun.
The 3rd world's boss was pretty neat, even if damaging it felt awkward. At least the damage didn't feel like it just kinda happened like it did with the 2nd world's boss.
Something goes here sometime.

Finished getting all the achievements in Sekiro last night. I guess the real final boss of the game is grinding enough skill points to buy all the techniques. I ended up just going through higher NG+ levels and buying them with the experience that came just from doing that. I ended up finishing the achievements on NG5, and I figure since I'm this far I might as well cap out the difficulty just to say I've done it.

It's probably too early to be impatiently awaiting DLC but man this game is a lot of fun. Unfortunately on the shorter end though.

Played through Blue's story in SaGa Frontier over the past few days. It's like 5 hours long if you know what you're doing, so. I'm already past that in my file tho.

Got the Light Magic gift, grinded a bit in Koorong's sewers, got the Grail Card, got some money around the many worlds, did the Junk Shop (for equipment) and Takonomics (for money to buy spells) exploits, got the Gold Card, got the Shield Card, got the Saber Card and the Arcane Magic gift, grinded a bit in the Bio Research Lab for magic and techs/skills/waza/whatever, tried to fight TimeLord, got owned.

So I'm back to grinding. Might check the accessory shop in Manhattan to see if it has anything that might help me (probably not).

It probably would be easier if I just went to fight Kylin since he doesn't have Overdrive (gives you 8 free moves to do whatever you want at the expense of all your JP and WP once its done), but the fact that according to canon,

Blue ends up making Kylin's Paradise vanish by stealing the Space Magic gift from Kylin, rendering all the children who live there homeless

makes me sad :( and that's why I always go for Time Magic (also Time Magic is broken).

I'm just playing random RPGs to stymie the feeling of being sad and depressed.

That's pretty relatable.

So I beat Wario World.
The 4th world was pretty good.
I wasn't expecting a second mansion-based level, but clearly they had more ideas, this time involving mirrors. The level was very straightforward, but pretty fun.
The final level at the pyramid place was the complete opposite and was the most open level in the game. It was nice to explore, even if certain parts were a little same-y. There was also one thing that soured the experience, and that was the sublevel thing that had rotating platforms that were weirdly shaped. I was stuck on that for like an hour.
The boss was pretty rad. The presentation of Captain Skull's fight was kind of amazing.
The final boss was pretty fun, too.
And I got to see all the spritelings dance and it was terrifying.

Thanks Treasure.
You made a video game.
Now that I know it was Treasure the weirdness makes sense. Especially for the bosses.
Something goes here sometime.

I started Summon Night (going as Hayato) and a bit into translating the prologue for my playthrough (it's in Japanesese), I'm distracted with listening to 80s Eurobeat instead of playing the damn game : ) uh oh

You can pick between four protags at the start of this game, later SumoNais shortened it down to two (boy and girl):
Outgoing guy -> Hayato Shindou
Outgoing girl -> Natsumi Hashimoto
Lone wolf guy -> Touya Fukazaki
Wallflower girl -> Aya Higuchi

I think they're all battlemages but the girls focus more on magic stats while the boys focus on physical stats or smth? I'm not an expert so don't quote me on this. They show up in Swordcraft Story in the Kagro Volcano segment in day 8, depending on what you say about the hero of Seijent (where SN1 takes place) when you're asked about them.

There's also your magic partner which, like in every Summon Night game, is picked depending on the options you choose in the prologue. Those of you who played Swordcraft Story 1&2 may remember the quiz at the start of the game to pick your summon? Cleru x Rasho and Pratty x Sugar 4lyfe

I found out about this series because of SEAWAR's hack so blame him haha (it's also what made me take the plunge and finally play Arc the Lad, I previously heard about it in the /v/'s recommended games wiki)

Started up NG7 in Sekiro, which I believe is the difficulty cap.
Honestly, similar to most of the Souls games, the biggest jump in difficulty is from NG to NG+ and then every increment from there is such a small percentage that you don't really notice the difference. But still, at least I can say I did it. Maybe later I'll challenge myself to play with one or both of the built-in mechanics that makes the game harder.

That was one of the two methods I mentioned for making the game harder (the other being Kuro's Charm). I used it a few times for item farming but thankfully I was smart enough to have read the sign and item you get when you do.

Unlike in Dark Souls 2 where I started off the game and immediately joined the covenant of champions and played through half the game not realizing I made the game harder.

Don't know if this counts as a "game", but I bought the Nintendo Labo VR kit! I bought the starter set with the headset and the gun, mostly cause it was cheaper. The instructions were absolutely amazing, and I made it in no time flat! And on top of that, it's a great VR tool as well! A great introduction to the world of VR

started playing jump half too yesterday i'm at world 3
it's pretty fun! honestly the western vip5 so far. made it to hongry plants, but then my power went out for like two hours so i just played odyssey and got through lost kingdom and metro kingdom

edit: i'm at koopa khaos

update on summon night even if i havent played it in a few days: i'm at chapter 5, trying to do the Sivon (スウォン) sub scenario but it kicked my butt and i didnt save so im back to the start of chapter 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! woops

i should feel bad about playing this without being very good at jp but i just want to relax and play a strategy rpg

onions on jumphalf:
ワールド1:草原
BEGINNER FRIENDLY
generally an easy stage. i like the feeling of a 105 edit, very vip1-ish haha

JANK TOWN USA
i kept thinking this stage was gonna make me do stupid bullshit because of all the custom blocks and whatnot but then i remembered that this was just the tutorial level

Home Run Derby
the baseball bat makes me laugh, i adore how the baseballs just become fireballs as if to say they're on fire from how hard mario swung it. it's so good!

Over Hills and Valleys
really good eye candy, very anikiti-esque or "that guy that did the bubble stages in vip"-esque. however, i do find the random clouds and coins in the middle of the sky just really dumb and kinda were a red herring for me when it came to finding the last dragon coin.

Hot Kickin'
i like the vanilla cave-ish feel. honestly it feels a bit like an edit at times. maybe that's a compliment?

Spooooooooky Cave
so begins the jank. I like the ghost skins for everything its cute. stage also felt very vanilla cave-ish with its open verticality in some segments

Offline Fencing
now this is podracing. a very nice hectic athletic level. felt kinda star world-ish.

Helium Caverns
i love the custom balloons. it makes a world of difference when you just have an irritating maze style of control instead of having your character constantly being nudged upwards, and i say this as someone who has no trouble at all with tubular. on keyboard. also this stage fucking owned my ass and was the first difficulty spike in my journey

Bastion 2 Blue
a nice, simple castle. i enjoyed the tribute to bastion in blue, really feels like a logical evolution of that stage, an Act 2 if you don't mind me speaking in furry terms

ワールド2:高原
Where No Man Lands
the whole floating platforms in the middle of nowhere "aesthetic" had a really good feel to it, very super mario sunshine secret level esque. also kinda yumpy? but not in a bad way! i had fun.

THIS WHAT GOD FEEL LIKE
this is a good name. i like the twist on mario 3 reddish note blocks, a very creative stage. pretty funny too.

Destiny of Grassland
another pretty stage. didnt feel much ~destiny~ from it but it was the kind of focused level design with colorful aesthetics i've come to expect from watching yoshi numbers' vids <3

VLDC Media Player
a nice vanilla level? i was kinda expecting it to turn it on its head and go full chocolate as a small gag but. a breather level is fine too

The Rhineland
this level made me laugh.

River of the Living Beards
a so-so stage honestly. no offense to sixcorbo. fuzzies are cute tho, especially the little zangief ones from asmt

JUMPING TIME
a fun star world-ish math platform stage. my one complaint is that i tried to go on the pipe for the secret exit like three times and in those three times it didnt register as me going in despite pressing up? that's nintendo's fault rest assured just. i legit had no idea where the secret exit was until i went a bit through world 3!

Peer Pressure
i'm honestly glad the ladies' bathroom text got changed in the latter half, extremely bad timing with the whole bathroom bill issue. you did miss an attempt to make a funny joke about ladies' bathrooms being portals to a dimension of eldritch horrors or something. a really funny stage and a clever spin on reset doors.

WINNERS DONT USE DRUGS
i was legit expecting the hallucinogenic shrooms to just kill you????? what the fuck mog. then again i'm probably confusing mogsiah with mindevous and mog probably was just always pretty good at asm? who knows. it was funy

Green Palace of the Alchemist
a very clever, very fun switch palace! i liked this! i liked this? i liked this.

When Porcupuffers Fly
sonic mania yoooooo. reminds me a bit of the oil spill level in one of the MGUs but this one is actually good???? 乙 i like the little wings on the porcupuffers :)

Midday and Midnight
memories of the Day World and Night World from VIP4. overall an easyish stage if you know what setting is best for each segment of the level. it'd be neat if you gated the dragon coins behind the harder routes, but i dont want to be nitpicky

PUNCHLINE
honestly a very awkward gimmick? funny concept though, just not my thing. sorry

Dynamic Dungeon
the ff legend 2 song does not fit here. a fun stage, i look forward to replaying it with the red switch.

ワールド3:砂漠
Desert Artillery Range
another very anikiti-ish stage, down to the wiggler chomps. a fun little romp, easier than anikiti

ILLUSIYELLOW
okay real talk this level kept fucking me up because i am not used to things that are yellow not being tangible but things of another color are??????? damn you!!!!!!!!!!! i do wonder if this stage is too hard for colorblind people tho (sweat emoji)

The Bootstrapped
this stage was really good. the gimmick is really dumb but the execution is excellent, as expected from worldpeace. the feeling of using a quintet of podoboos performing synchronized reflecting as a platform was very orgasmic though.

Big Bubble Watchers
a breather level, but there's really not much that can be made from the gas bubbles. had fun!

Do They Float?
my second favorite stage so far, and another ass-kicker. replaying it to get that last dragon coin made it that much better. 10/10 i want to marry this level.

Treehouse of the Parakoopas
i was worried at first because the start seemed too busy, like Poker's Piranha Island hack, but the rest of the stage was surprisingly easy on the eyes. not that many parakoopas, but it was a quality stage. keep it up.

The Lost Lotus Forest
i really want to know how you did the dynamic level loading. did you load the layer 1 from another sublevel behind the player's back? a nice stage if kinda easy-ish. i like the variety in lotuses tho

Caliginous Coppice
the secret exit method legit pissed me off? especially because i kept dying in stupid ways trying to get it. this isn't fair! not a bad level :)

Rubicon
this level is up there with some of the best. you managed to make a level where you cant go right fun, creative and challenging. what the fuck is with this.... furry. lazy, please take my hand in marriage you absolute madperson. i love this stage you have no idea WOW

Questionable Yellow Switch
i'm sorry i do not like this stage at all haha. i dont want to be mean but the ? block spam and the close corner maneuvering with the sawblades is just not very fun and feels very cumbersome. first stage i outright didnt like. i'm so sorry

Brain Plague
a very suspenseful stage. i actually enjoyed this one a lot!

Bunny Hop
a neat level exploring the many uses of jiangshi-style hoppin' statues. honestly a huge step up from the previous sixcorby stage. really good shit, keep it up boyo!!!!!!!!

this group of trees is cOLD
wow this haruhi port still sucks ass. so-so ice stage, honestly. i didnt really enjoy it much but that's fine.

Quillstamp Melody
probably the best attempt at making a bramble level out of vanilla assets i've seen thus far. i'm a graphics whore so i'm easily suckered into any decent rip of the dkc2 brambles, but this stage was really good looking. i'm impressed. anyway, very solid stage, kinda tough-ish tho. my one complaint is that the 3up moon is too easy to get, even if i did grind to 99 lives in the oasis.

hongry plants
this level, kicked my but??? the kind of jump level i suck ass at lol

i saw you in the forest
a simple layer 2 level. pretty fun

I finish Dragon Quest XI around 130 hours.
I did everything that was needed to get the Platinum Trophy, and also beat

Overweening Pride. A pretty fun boss, and one of the few that called for Magic Burst.



The

final final boss

was also interesting, even if the

game felt kinda like it ended almost too quickly after he was defeated. It was just kinda like "By the way here's Yggdragon. The 3rd Act was kinda more game for less story.



I enjoyed the credits. They were neat because they included gameplay of past games. Well, most of the time. One of the games had only dialogue shown, and DQX was only cutscene shown.

Something goes here sometime.
