i beat super castlevania 4

it's a very well designed game, and it does get super good at the end, but the extremely dull earlygame spoils it for me
overall, it was a job well done

i didn't use the "secret stash"/invisible staircase while fighting dracula btw
i did use a bit of pause buffering to help me position myself on dracula phase 2's electricity beams (so i could see where it's safe to stand)

hope that doesn't count as cheating!!!!

That's not cheating at all, so you're fine.

Mario Party 10 is okay. Not good, not awful, just okay. The game's way more streamlined from the moment you boot it up. No story mode, but the one real knock I have against the game is that there appears to only be five main game boards. I don't know if there's an unlockable one, but 9 did have seven boards at the very least. It's still doing the car thing, so if you hated that about 9, this game won't change your mind on it. Haven't tried the Amiibo or Bowser modes yet, but I won't get my hopes up on those either. Again, it's an okay game from what I've played.

broke my drought of playing tetris, so I'm trying to beat it now. (get to level 20)

Here's my progress so far:

I hope I can get my head wrapped around controlling the trajectory, otherwise I'm not sure how to get any higher than level 12.

i beat the entirety of final fantasy mystic quest in one day and all i got was this lazy photoshop
Image

and also this glitch i triggered by sheer accident
Image

not a bad game, but very bland
in terms of beginner's jrpgs, i'd recommend ff4 easytype, ff6 or ff7 over this

if you think this kept ff5 out of the west you are a silly goose and deserve a time out in the corner
same if you think secret of evermore kept seiken densetsu 3 out of the west

We'll have to agree to disagree there. Mystic Quest is my second favorite Final Fantasy after the GBA remake of FFII.

Don't know if anyone's mentioned it in the past, but drop what you're doing and go play the demo to Undertale right now. Earthbound-inspired RPG. It's incredible and very, very worth your time. I really don't want to reveal any more because it's got a few twists that it's better to experience than to read about.
I'm probably driving right now.

From GameFAQs:
Battlefield Reset

When fighting in a battlefield against an enemy that can selfdestruct, make sure all but that one enemy is dead. Also, make sure your hp is low enough for the selfdestruct to kill you as well. Wait for the enemy to selfdestruct and kill both of you. The battle will end, you will gain all the experience, gp, and even the battle count will decrease, and then it will ask you to try again. Do so and repeat the previous steps until you see that you have won the prize for defeating all the enemies. Win the next battle and exit. The battlefield icon will look like one that has been cleared out and the battlefield will now say: Battlefield Round 255 of 10.

Wow, since I've never needed a faq for the game and never managed to get myself into a situation like that I've never managed to run into that glitch before. That's kinda hilarious. Only glitchy sort of thing I've come across is curing the final boss. I forget the exact mechanics but so long as you're under a certain level, curing him with the main character (only the main character for some reason) deals absurd amounts of damage. If you're too high of a level though (I think it cuts off around level 34 or 36 but I forget) the damage actually ends up so high it wraps around to absurd healing instead. (We're talking about ranges from like 12-30,000.)

If I remember correctly, the reason it doesn't work if Phoebe casts Cure is that her magic stat is like, twice as high as the hero's, so it literally rolls over *twice* and heals the final boss. Rather silly the way that works.

I'm playing Final Fantasy III (the NES version, not the 3D chibi model version on DS, PSP, Steam, iOS, Android, Ouya and the Victormaxx Stuntmaster)

I started Bloodborne and I can't beat the first boss.

Also dying in this game is much more punishing since you have to wait through like a 15 second loading screen because CONSOLES. SO NEXT GEN

Oh yeah, I'm up to three badges in Pokemon Reborn. The gym leader for the third badge was a pain, even though it was mono-bug. The biggest issues were it was a double battle and the field that was in effect during that battle.
Numel was the biggest savior of mine, the move lava plume actually changes the entirety of the field into a burning field, which is way more in my advantage.
All in all that battle was probably the hardest battle I've had to deal with yet.

That sounds right since the reason the main character's damage can roll over to absurd healing is because at a certain level his magic stat is too high.

Also dammit, all this talk about Mystic Quest is making me want to replay it again.

Remember how I said the loading screens in Bloodborne were like 15 seconds? Turns out I was being extremely generous and it's more like 30-45 seconds.

Started playing Revengeance. This is a very silly game.

From what I've seen, that game gets stupidly hard. Best of luck.

So here we are. Plays have been enacted. Empires have come and gone. The mightiest have passed away and withered, alike the least. Fires have burned, thousandfold. Yet, did not the great wind serenely continue its course? Does not the blackbird still sing its song? Does not the mistletoe still dwell in the oak's crown? Forgotten, what once has been told. Veiled, the words that once so rang out. Shrouded, like the larva in its cocoon. Let him hear it, who will.

In an effort to find some gimmicks I could replicate in SMBX for a level for the unused MaGL X/X2 level name collab (which, incidentally, you should totally go check out if you haven't already :3), I played through Donkey Kong Country the First.
Conclusion: I could probably do some fun stuff with Elevator Antics, also holy shit is that game dumb about its secrets. I never realised just how many bonuses require you to jump off cliffs or fall in holes with absolutely no indication. It's baaaad. Also why does Orang-utan Gang have five of them?
Anyway final game time was like 2:21 or something which was way longer than the 1:30 or so I was hoping for after the first quarter of the game took me like 20 minutes.

I recently started playing Animal Crossing New Leaf again after a 5 month period. Which was also just after a 9 month period. Mainly play it when I need to take a break from Monster Hunter. I also load up Etrian Odyssey 4 every once and a while to do a little grinding there.

Been playing a lot of Payday 2 this month. I've also played a variety of games such as:

- Grim Fandango Remastered for my YT channel.
- Super Mario 64 on Twitch.tv
- Super Mario Bros. 3 (also tried to record, but apparently can't do hour long recordings with Game Capture anymore)
- Various sports games.
Sometimes it's easier to let go than go on.
