  1. ‘appy birfday @Wes! Hope it’s a diamond of a day for ya!
  2. I’ve thought the same for DQ9. After 5 minutes of playing the game on my 3DS, I nope’d out pretty quick.
  3. Didn’t make a lot of progress in RS3 the past two days, but I did find a good grinding spot so I was taking advantage of that for my party. In the town of Pidona, there is a Dream World you can explore via Muse’s side quest. Every encounter has a single enemy, a Tapir, but defeating them will always give you a Tapir’s Tear which will fully heal the party’s HP, SP, and MP. So as you can probably guess, you go all out in fights to help raise your SP and MP levels by using skills or magic like crazy respectively, then after battle use a Tear and BAM! Fully healed party. I made a back up save befo
  4. No, the current mobile version is based on a previous mobile version of DQ3 that was released in Japan. It uses the Super Famicom version for visuals, but it lacks the Pachisi/T’n’T boards, monster animations, the opening cutscene involving Ortega’s journey, several cutscenes no longer have certain visual effects such as Zoma’s figure no longer appearing in Aliahan Castle after Baramos’ defeat...I could go on, but you get the point. There are a lot of changes. The Switch version is based on the current mobile version, just with some improved artwork for the characters and monster sprites.
  5. Sigh...well, Nintendo got me to buy some more amiibos. I didn’t realize the Champion amiibos for Zelda: Breath of the Wild had been reprinted already, so I bought the four of them tonight after work. There’s my Black Friday shopping along with the $2 I spent on the eshop last night.
  6. The Nintendo eshop Black Friday sales are live! Bought a game for a whopping $2 that’s been on my wishlist for quite a while now: Heavy Burger. It’s a mash up of Data East arcade games where you play as the character from Burger Time wielding a burger firing gun in a race to get the money to the bank in Bad Dudes. Every time you reach a goal, you jump to a new arcade machine. It’s as strange as it sounds but it’s actually really fun! Here’s some gameplay of the game in action with up to 4 players.
  7. Rare Replay. Eal said the game in his post. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rare_Replay Might as well tell you now that Rare did not make any turn based RPGs. They made stuff like Banjo-Kazooie.
  8. None of the SaGa games are connected. You can play 3 without having played 1 and 2. It’s like Final Fantasy and post Erdrick Trilogy Dragon Quest games: each game is its own thing. The Minstrel I mentioned is just a recurring character, kind of like how there’s always named Cid in Final Fantasy games. This game, for the time being, feels much easier than RS2 did, especially at the beginning. It was after @Plattym3and I started racing RS2 that we learned it’s one of the hardest games in the series period. Part of why it took me so long to finish it was because I needed breaks from it, but
  9. I’m just shy of 7 hours of progress in Romancing SaGa 3 from this weekend. It’s been an interesting experience playing, mainly because of how traveling around the world is so different compared to RS2. I have gone to quite a few locations and have been able to recruit a number of characters, including the Minstrel from other SaGa games, the small town super hero Robin, and a warrior of the north named Ward. Favorite so far has to be Nora the Blacksmith though. She hits like a truck and has very good HP. I am running into a problem I had in RS2 though, and that’s being unsure of where exac
  10. Shush you! Don't feed the Yangus! Just you wait for the Etrian episode. If you think I talk a lot now, wait till it’s a series I actually care about.
  11. Yangus is just deflecting from the fact that *somehow* Pokken Tournament became the longest discussion. Because it's the one we all played... right? I did a poor job explaining the game.
  12. You kept laughing at us for our heartfelt and sincere opening for the episode! I felt very hurt since we spent so long writing it!
  13. Are you sure the longer times weren’t from Bluestar laughing so much?
  14. I’m glad I could contribute what little experience I have with Pokémon and the spin off games.
  15. ‘appy birfday @Twinkie! Hope you have a real diamond of a day. And just for you, enjoy an important Twinkie fact courtesy of the Simpsons.
  16. But sometimes "it's fine if fewer video games are released becuase my backlog is enough for years" happens. Better be careful saying stuff like that. Santa Slime may put on the naughty list and not bring you any new DQ games if you keep it up.
  17. And so it begins. First off, I really like the intro movie. I thought it was cool RS2 had a long opening to set up some history for the world, and I’m glad this game does the same thing. I’m curious how much it will play into story/progression with the “Every 300 years,” time frame. Makes me wonder if the game takes place during the new 300th year or if it’s to come. Intro didn’t make that quite clear, but that very well could be the point. Second, I like that you get to choose your protagonist at the beginning of the game. You have 8 choices, 4 guys and 4 girls, and from starti
  18. Because I have too many other RPGs in limbo. Took long enough to beat Romancing SaGa 2. Replaying FF3 was a spur of the moment thing since I haven’t played anything on my Vita in months. But with RS2 done I can move on to RS3, which I’ve been wanting to play forever. Like, even before I got into the SaGa series I wanted to play RS3.
  19. Finally, FINALLY, finished Romancing SaGa 2! I still can’t believe I finally managed to complete the game. I’m in disbelief it finally happened consider how long ago I started it and how difficult it could get. Doing all the extra grinding and exploration did help a lot, and I felt on more even footing with the final boss compared to a week ago. I was basically throwing myself at a brick wall before, but now I felt like I could properly handle the challenge. I’m glad I was able to find some online help since this series isn’t that big over here. Having the game completed after t
  20. When I think about it, it’s technically 2-2. You beating a Trails game for a race counts as 2 since it has so much dialogue and text! Haha Congrats on beating NNK2!
  21. IT’S FINALLY DONE!!!!!!! Oh my god, I cannot believe I FINALLY beat the game!!! Man, this has been a year in the making! The final battle was so much easier to deal with thanks to the extra grinding and skill unlocking I did! Damn, this game was such a rollarcoaster, but I absolutely loved it even when I hated it. Thanks to this title I may have discovered one of my new favorite franchises, and with Romancing SaGa 2 finally done I can move on to the other games! Guess now @Plattym3it’s 2 to 1 on race victories.
