Ended chapter 6 in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. So like, I was spoiled by Chugga's let's play but it still hits you right in the feels when you understand what they're threatening to do and why.

I've been messing around in Flashpoint and have been playing Mega Miner, a simple motherload clone where you play as a drill machine and mine ore. It's calm and a nice time waster.

I've gotten into a Team Fortress 2 mood, which happens every year or two, and as some sort of flex, decided I would get the rarest achievement in the game. You might be thinking to yourself "Kleetus, what is the rarest achievement found in Cohort Defense Bastion the Second, the one that only the top tier of mega ultra gamers have the skill to attain?"
Could it be incredible grind of Process of Elimination?(Win 140 rounds on the map cp_process.)
Could it be the ball busting test of skill that is Specialist?(Heal 10,000 points in one life as medic.)
Could it be the oddly specific lightning in a bottle event of Got A Light??(As pyro ignite a spy while he is taunting with the disguise kit as his active weapon.)
Could it Blockbuster? An achievement that is actually impossible to attain legitimately because it relies on a no longer supported third party service.
No, it's none of these, its freaking Jackpot!; win 10 rounds of the "PASS time" mode. As it turns out this achievement is so difficult to attain simply because of how few servers run PASS time.

phantasy star - got the shortcake, gave it to the governor of paseo, had sleep paralysis was attacked by a SACCUBUS [sic], bought a magic lamp, went through maharu cave, recruited noah, went through gothic, saved dr. luveno and got his assistant, purchased the polymeteral, got hapsby, got the amber eye, and bought the landrover. now i gotta find the hovercraft and then head to drasgow for the gas shield.

the walkthrough im using said the landrover was a waste of money but. c'mon. it goes over antlion holes. also i had a surplus from playing in ages mode wwwwwwwwwww

lunar 2 eternal blue - did the serekam (serak) palace in laqueral (raculi), rescued mauri, watched some emotional scenes with mauri and ronfar and went through the painful red dragon's cave. both games really do have some painful ass red dragon caves what the fuck. also the red fiend wasn't as cute in this one? no mai pina fluff, no buy.

i don't know if that was from me having played the Working Designs macekre'ing but the "ruby is conflicted on whether to go full dragon" scene felt a lot more emotional since nall actually informs her of how, as an adult dragon, she'll have eternal life, and thus outlive hiro and everyone else, like nall did with the previous game's team. it's honestly super precious, and she comes to terms with the fact that they'll live forever in her memories and in her heart and aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh <3 <3 <3 best game

summon night 2 - did chapters 9 to 11. nesty basically went out and said that leonard is not gonna find a way back to los angeles since his summoner is die 5ever. leonard did appreciate my (toris') cheering him up though. acab but he reminds me of columbo. continuing on, we tried to search for amer's grandma's house, as agluvain told her, which was in the forest east of tridra and north of fanan. sadly we only found lu. got into a little skirmish with her, she thought we were bad guys, not sure which faction.

we then went in deeper in the forest, because the shock of discovering agluvain might have lied about amer's familial relationships shook her a bit. cue a battle with some demons. a demon then utters a word (didn't look up the translation, i'm sorry!) that just froze toris on the spot but my boys elzine, ES-G-LD and kaina from the first game showed up!!! kaina was so happy that she finally found keina even with her amnesia that she, ES-G-LD and elzine are travelling with us a wee bit to help with her memory.

we then headed up to tridra to meet with folte's acquaintance, an old friend of his, shamrock. minis was like "yeah i bet ur lying :pily: :pily: :pily: " but at this point i was just fast forwarding through a lot of it because. no offense to visual novels as a genre, i just don't get along well with them. we found shamrock in a battle with the deigleyan forces. skipping a battle with ioth and zer-fi-LD, so i can recruit some characters down the line, we beat up binna (pronounced like binyot, biña) and shamrock's knocked out, so we retreat to lu's house so he can recover.

now in chapter 12 we're gonna head to the three fort city of tridra to get into a fight with qura and rigor.

along the way there was also a small diss battle involving minis and kelma because of some shit, likely rivalry between both of their families, but we got some cute ass interactions with kelma and kazamine so it was worth it. paffel made it safely out of the fortress, yuel also found silvana's necklace, but refused to give it back due to problems she had with humans (she's a beastperson), then nearly got in trouble for stealing fish from the fanan downtown shops, but a nice lady offered to give her food since yuel doesn't know how to work more or less, she has the mentality of a child.

rocca was also worried minis was too young to be in an adventure with us but toris was like "yeah nah". sion also showed up for a quaint chat with toris in his soba stand and offer some advice.

playing phantasy star 2 with vivify's improvement patch and it cannot be overstated how much fast walking, rebalancing the characters so they all have their own niche instead of just being there for the most part, and slight edits to equipment for a more balanced armor set for the cast makes a difference in this game.

i've also applied the x2 exp patch and the faster battles/no flashing patch packaged with it and as someone who did not like Phantasy Star II at all, it's honestly the SEGA AGES Phantasy Star II i've wanted since i started playing Sega Ages PhSt1. the level gains actually feel relatively balanced to the actual game's difficulty, apart from the occasional dq-style grind here and there.

i bothered to give everyone a shot in the party since vivify changed everyone's tech/magic skill set, so i had to grind their levels, current party is

rolf/rudo/kain/shir

, might play around with anna, hugh and amy soon, hugh and shir were even given healing spells, amy being the central healer.

i don't know how much of it is also me wising up and making sure to get every star mist i can find in the wild (i think three, rest have to be stolen from shops by shir which Hah, No.) and using "using armor = spell cast" special effects more, which makes me feel bad because it feels like i haven't properly rated the original phantasy star 2....... but i also really don't want to replay it, too much grind and too much bullshit for not enough reward for your efforts.

I'm not sure which is worse, trying to track down specific monsters to fight for affinity nodes in Xenoblade 2 or dealing with Hard Campaign in Advance Wars Dual Strike (up to Lightning Strike, somehow I'm having trouble grokking how the AI reacts to things. also auto CO keeps turning itself back on after failures/yields which is not helping)

...actually, AWDS is worse. XBC2 at least gives me something to explore.

okay i haven't played summon night 2 in a while before today so im gonna recount what im able to piece together from my terrible memory. i was waking up at terrible times and going to sleep at worse hours, couldn't even anki

we headed to tridra with shamrock to meet with the king, Rigor, for asylum. turns out he was conspiring with Qura to acquire the holy maiden, or "she who is the key". might have been in exchange for tridra's safety, either way rigor was fucking turned into an ogre by qura, there was a fight and shamrock had to mercy kill him. its much more emotional than i make it seem.

chapter 13 was a filler episode. we got silvana's pendant, kelma and minis had their decisive match, then i went on a "date" with nesty. also paffel knows assassination arts somehow.

chapter 14 was normal, sion found ruug, we nursed him back to health, and yuel was set free from her asshole summoner, kraus, who was using her to assassinate people in a sidequest. she's now with us and so is paffel. we're planning to head back to relm village, where amer lived, maybe find agluvain. currently training for the upcoming battle with ioth.

EDIT: oh what the fuck the lowen fort free battle gives less exp than the thurzen fort free battle??? that's homophobic, i don't care about baum, they give almost the same amount. (place names are not official anglicizations)

Re: What games are you playing?

at chapter 16 in summon night 2. long story short we met up with agluvain after reaching relm again, headed back to zeram. nesty explained that his problems with not wanting to go to the forbidden forest is that he was ordered to kill toris (or magna if you're playing as him). this is explained further when we get the angel's feather from agluvain and head to the forbidden forest. in there, there is a sort of mechanical ruin, where, from what i can gather, they basically make living summoner weapons, i assume it takes the essence of a summoner to do so?

and basically...

nesty is from loreilal, his real name is nesty lyle, not nesty bask. he is from a family of summoners in loreilal, even being partly mechanical. toris/magna is also from a family, theirs being the crisment family. amer on the other hand is the reincarnation of the goddess arumine. she has some fabulous ass wings



after accidentally releasing some magical robots out, they end up beating them up after exiting it post being transported in there by the ruin. after that it's basically a huge convo trying to figure out what's going on. toris was even pretty shaken up over the revelation of the whole thing. long ass cutscene though, break for now.

-------------------------------------

i've also started summon night: swordcraft story 2 because i couldn't help myself. at day 3 (counting the prologue where you choose the guardian beast and whatnot as day 0, like happy days and a guide on gamefaqs do). so far it's a really cute game, i get similar infectious sugary feelings that i got from lunar 1&2. my only complaint is that lynn/rinri is overly sexualized. like yeah there's gonna be edgar, who i picked as the protag, calling her a babe and all. little kids y'know.

but then you have her showing off her breast size, a weird out of left field instance of arno (my guardian beast) calling her "a hot tomater with gams that go up to here", which i just laughed at because of how ridiculous it was... the game even acknowledged how awkward and nonsensical it was, so?

there were some instances of gayness in my edgar/edge playthrough, with gabriel/gabrio (my current avatar, adorable little olful/wolf boy, thought he was a cat) and orin/orca, notably. it's just them blushing but it's kind of cute. even if orin's a few years older than edgar (orin's 19, edgar and aera are 15). it fits with the original swordcraft having blatant lesbian romance baiting with pratty and sugarette and slightly pratty and sanary/razzy.

atlus changed a lot of names and it's interesting. i don't hate the new names, but i can imagine some weeb would. the game is also weirdly harder than og swordcraft? had to grind a few times in the woods, which seem to be the equivalent of the trial labyrinth here, along with the whole disassembling and creating new weapons and using arno's magic smartly.

currently heading to the lost woods (mayoi no mori boyee) and the lightning fortress. nina nina is a really adorable character and im glad they did a joke with her name in the dialogue, no idea if it's english only but it's good. she is mostly naked though which is sus. tatiana's really adorable. the boss encounter against orin in day 3 was also really fun.

today's gender of the day is: child of the wind

I've been giving Lagrange Point another chance because it recently got a new English patch (I played a bit of it in Japanese before, but just didn't bother to get very far). Not sure if I'll see it all the way through, but I'm glad to have seen what I have so far. It looks good for an NES RPG and the FM synth music really sells the otherworldly sci-fi esthetic. Thing is, the gameplay's nothing special as far as I can see. The main gimmick of the battle system is that you have to manage BP (the MP-analogous stat), which decreases with regular attacks as well as technique use, and if it hits zero you can barely do damage anymore until you fix that. You can effectively convert BP to HP with healing techs, but not the other way around (as of yet, at least), so BP is the be-all/end-all. Thing is, money is scarce in that you don't actually receive money gained from battles until you visit the equivalent of an inn (in-game lore is that it's your reward for defeating killer robots/bio-monsters/etc), and after you do that it's likely you're going to gobble up that money with healing and equipment, never mind consumables because getting stuck in the middle of nowhere with no BP is a death sentence. I assume money will get inflated in typical RPG fashion and I'll have plenty of it later, but until then I've never been able to successfully run from a battle (there may be a trick to it I haven't found out, but the game sure hasn't told me anything), so I'm stuck fighting all of them no matter how disadvantaged I am.

But the immersion! In addition to the general presentation of the game, there are terminals everywhere that you can read lore (sometimes encyclopedia-like, sometimes broadcasts from characters somewhere out there in the world) from, which leads me to believe there was truly a sci-fi ethos behind the writing in addition to the esthetic. Someone had to have been pouring their soul into fleshing out the world behind those terminals. I can't not give a few more chances to a game that does that!

Oh my goodness he's called Edge in Japanese? Shout-out to whatever member of the localization team changed that to something not quite so on-the-nose. Altho if the Daemon Edge is called the same thing in Japanese, I suppose it makes sense.

SNSS2 is a fun bop and I adored both guardians (Arno and Exeld) I've played the game through with so far. I'll be playing the game again at least two more times someday to experience the others. Might also revisit SNSS1 for the end goal of making a patch that instrumental-izes its music to be more like 2's (yes, the square waves are part of the charm, but half of it's a "because I can" thing).

Aera is just named Air so I have no idea. Going by the (offline but archived) site, it might be named majin (EDIT: 魔刃), as in, "demon edge/blade"?

I only found out by going on the archived official site's character page

Only like SN1-6 have pages remaining now, I think all the others got taken down.
Ex-these was even like a flash site so I can't even access Fighfar (fire lion)'s character page on archive.org easily. Goddamnit Bamco

I started up Yakuza 0 just to see what the games are like for myself. Basic arena brawler for the fights which is fine, main story does nothing offensive other than looooooong cutscenes which I knew about it going in, but the substory stuff is kind of on the embarrassing side at times with sophomoric humor being around in like half of the ones I've done so far. I don't know. I didn't think this stuff was all that funny when I started up GTA IV, and that was 2008. By now, it's just making me scratch my head.

So fun game for now, okay plot, hit or miss side quest stuff.

I started up Doom Eternal recently, and even though I've just completed Mission 6, man oh MAN this game is an absolute banger. Difficult, but in a very fair way. I'm only playing on medium and I'm still getting whooped, but it's never discouraging. Finding secrets is also super fun, my only gripe is the length of the stages makes collecting missed objects kind of a pain, but it's still worth it. 10/10 dude oh my lordy

Re: What games are you playing?

Heading to the Pirates' Hideout in Lidal in Lufia: The Legend Returns. I don't think I've talked about it here but, it's a really fun Lufia sequel. I'm pretty sure expectations of like a Lufia III: Ruin Chasers (that's what it was gonna be called before Nihon-Flex died, good night sweet prince) that'd build on Lufia II as a base and be like a Wild Arms+α would be sky high, but this is almost as good for me. And also early Wild Arms existed, being a sort of spiritual second Lufia series, if for anything, then by sheer coincidence.

The 9 battle position slots and Spiritual Force synergy mechanic is kind of unwieldy but the game is friendly enough to let you bypass it a bit for a better experience, letting you use IP Moves at a higher cost if the synergy isn't ideal, like the requirement hasn't been reached. There is a lot of playable characters from what I can tell, including

Artea's sister, Milka

from Lufia 1 and 2 which. Wow, that's a deep dive. Characters are not as fleshed out, especially since it's a handheld game with 9+ protags. But do you really play Lufia for the fleshed out characters??

Dungeons are also turned into little mystery dungeon type deals, with randomized layouts and loot. While people have complained about it being repetitive in reviews, I feel like it's a situation similar to Zwei!! in that it's kind of inevitable for a mechanic like this. Other people have also complained that you can just go up and down stairs until you get a map with stairs next to you and I think that's incredibly stupid, because you're missing out on loot and EXP and generally making the game harder for you because you're being a stubborn bitch. But that's just me.

Bosses are also incredibly hard, it's very stupid, but I kind of dig it. Makes beating them a lot more fulfilling. They also have better AI than like. FF Legend 3, where they just spammed partywide attacks. Grinding is an option, including grinding to stockpile on loot exclusive to dungeons, including the precious Miracles (basically full HP Revives) and later in the Lidal Continent, I might have to do so for Sanity Rings in preperation for Amon.

Which btw, every Sinistral is the climax of an arc in its own little island continent. It's neat. They're also huge pain in the asses to fight, but you can also try and beat them before you're "meant" to and. You'll still get rewarded? And that's super cool! I'm not doing it but. I love when RPGs do that. You can beat Gades in the first continent the first time you meet him with just Wain and Seena if you're batshit enough, and you'll get a cool armor piece, it's great. And on top of that there's some nice sidequests: Optional randomized dungeons, fetch quest type things, Ancient Cave, the Egg Dragon sidequest from other Lufias,

you can even recruit the Egg Dragon once you've wished for everything! And he's completely maxed out!

.

Speaking of stupid, the dialogue is incredibly dumb, but so human in how dumb it is that it feels like Lunar? Or if you're more of a fan of 'em, I guess Toby Fox's RPGs? They're not as bizarre as Itoi's work, though. Sorry, subliminal memories from when I wrote the latter part of the post. It's more blunt than those three though. The characters are incredibly stupid and dumb, but they're incredibly likeable. Wain gets constantly called stupid, but he's like, the ultimate sword himbo. Dekar would be so proud. It's a very cute RPG and I love it so much.

I honestly expected this one to be one of those games that are like too weird to be properly enjoyed, like Unlimited Saga but. It's honestly up there with Pokémon Crystal. Of the two GBC RPGs I've played so far I can't decide whether Pokémon Gen 2 or Lufia 3 is better! There's also Pokémon TCG 1 and I guess Telefang 1 but I haven't played those since the 00s, so let's ignore em for now.

Telefang 1&2, mark my words, your day will come. Pokémon Diamond GBC, you motherfucker. Actually own the cartridge these days due to my dad's dumpster diving habits, only played it in ROM form before. Somehow don't own any Gen 4 Pokémon game though, I dropped out due to getting a PSP at the time instead for Sonic Rivals, and I'm not going near eBay and Amazon prices. Shit's like €50 in box.

I've only seen a bit of it in a friend's stream and from what I can tell at least it's not punch down humor? Like even in the

dominatrix

sidequest, for lack of a better term, while her shyness is part of the joke, the sidequest is about helping her stand up for herself, which includes

being more dominant

.

Or even the

yankii band

sidequest, where you have to help adorable preppy nerds seem like they're hardcore badasses to their fanbase. Again, their wussiness is kind of the joke, but iirc they're never really humiliated for it like an American comedy would, at most,

Kiryu just accidentally makes one cry due to speaking too loudly

.

I'd honestly compare it to like Toby Fox or Itoi's RPGs, but with more swearing. It's jokey, but it's the nice kind of jokey. I've heard some Kiwami remakes even rewrite sidequests involving trans NPCs to not be offensive. You're free to dislike it though, sorry if I'm coming off as pushing my opinions on you.
