  1. Started up SaGa 2/Final Fantasy Legend 2. Man, talk about a big graphical improvement from the first game. The world map is much more detailed, as are towns. The UI and menu design is a lot closer to what would be the layout for other SaGa games like Romancing SaGa 2, you have dedicated icons to clearly distinguish weapon types...lots of improvements to the first game, and I can see how this game was what helped set a standard for the series going forward. Anyway, game is light on story like the first one but you have a Dragon Quest III type of opening from the SNES and GBC versions: you
  2. Got my game started today and named my island Estard. Going to try and make it as DQ7 themed as I can layout wise. Starting fruit is peaches, and I set my island in the summer hemisphere for opposite seasons. Not sure when I can start trading and working with other players (the Dodo airport kept telling me “Haha we’re closed to bad” or something not similar to that at all) but I’d appreciate anyone who could help me get some of the other fruits eventually.
  3. DQ already has a pretty easy to understand and use UI. Can’t get much simpler than how DQ handles that.
  4. You can skip the Fire Emblem Sacred Stones and Mother 3 portions of that episode. They aren’t worth hearing.
  5. Been playing Pikmin 3 Deluxe since Christmas and have really been enjoying the game on Switch. I had played it on Wii U but it kind of felt...off. Like it was missing something that Pikmin 1 and 2 had. And frankly, it was just a one playthrough game, which was not a good thing for a Pikmin game. Biggest reason was only one save file. Absolutely hated that since part of the fun of Pikmin is comparing your runs. Thankfully, I didn’t feel that way with this version of the game. For one, the controls feel a lot better, both when playing handheld and when trying to use a pro controller. Switch
  6. That’s a shame. Guess I can save some eshop money and not worry about them.
  7. Happy New Year! Here’s to a new year and the upcoming 35th anniversary of Dragon Quest!

      Oh snap! It's gonna happen in 2021???

      Yep, yep!  I'm really excited as well!

      The last several years have been pretty good with Dragon Quest. Here is hoping that the 35th will be better!

  8. I debated on getting that game. I remember it being advertised on Steam years ago but never got it. Was surprised to see it and the other Boot Hill game on Switch, but I opted to put the money towards Collection of SaGa, Moon, and the NES Fire Emblem game. Let us know how Boothill is. I still have both games on my wishlist for future sales.
  9. SaGa Frontier was the first SaGa game I bought back in college. Went to a used game store and found a copy in good shape for $20 on PS1 but never started it. I’m looking forward to experiencing the game for the first time with the remaster. I’ve kept it mostly spoiler free, so I’m looking forward to experiencing the game and seeing how it compares to the few others I’ve played. Not sure who I’ll start with, but it’s cool to know they’ve added Fuse as a protagonist. Apparently he was cut from the original but could still join you in different stories, so good to see he got back his planned
  10. Yep, for sure. I’m glad Square Enix is showing so much support for the series now. Reminds me of how they’ve done better about supporting Dragon Quest outside of Japan. Plenty of games in the series to check out now and more on the horizon. Looking forward to SaGa Frontier Remastered next year.
  11. According to my switch I started the collection as a whole 5 days ago on Christmas Day. Didn’t play it much that day since, well, it was Christmas, but part of why I was able to beat game 1 so quickly was thanks to having three days off in a row. I actually only played it for maybe 2, 3 hours at a time. And there’s a fast speed option you can toggle on and off whenever you want, so that helped too. Can’t say I’m surprised it was short since it was a Gameboy RPG from 1989, but I had fun. I had two humans, male and female, a mutant and a monster. Mutant party member was annoying si
  12. Finished SaGa 1/Final Fantasy Legend 1 in the Collection of SaGa. The last portions of the game were starting to get kind of difficult, but thankfully with all the money the game started throwing out I was able to keep my party well equipped. The final boss was a “A-ha, you were playing into my little game,” but it was cool to see it was a character who was present throughout the entire experience. He was rough since he has some really powerful AoE attacks, but thankfully I did it after a few retries and some equipment swapping. Definitely make sure to save before the final stair climb an
  13. I think I should add a joke goal to my list: Make sure Smash Ultimate isn’t my most played Switch game by the end of the year again. According to My Nintendo stats, Smash Ultimate has been my #1 played game two years in a row now. Now, 2019 when I finally got the game, I can understand. But 2020? That surprised me. Byleth didn’t really spark much play time, but Min-Min, Minecraft Steve and especially the Sephiroth updates? Yes. Yes they certainly did. I think I have a problem, guys! Maybe by the end of 2021 I can top it with Animal Crossing New Horizons. I did get that for Christmas but
  14. Should I mention I got Yakuza: Like a Dragon for Christmas then...?
  15. End of the year check in: 1. I did complete a number of games I had left on the Limbo List. Breath of the Wild, DQ11S, Red Dead Redemption 2 (which I absolutely enjoyed finally completing), and several indie games. I have some new additions to the Limbo List, but I managed to complete a number of games I left unfinished from 2019 so I’m happy with that. 2. Got the podcast gig rolling thanks to Slime Time Side Quest. It’s been fun doing the show every few weeks with Platty and rotating guests. It’s been fun discussing various topics, and I hope we can go beyond games at some point and
  16. Collection of SaGa: I think I’m halfway through the first game of the collection. With this and the other two games being Gameboy era RPGs I’m not expecting super long games, but I’ve been having a lot of fun with the collection so far. I feel like I’ve gotten a good amount of time from the first game from exploring, doing a little grinding so I can get those next stat upgrades, and just enjoying the presentation. Part of me feels at home playing the first game since my first RPG was a Gameboy RPG (Dragon Warrior Monsters 1), so the simple presentation, button controls, and chip tune music mak
  17. I have a few: 1. Finish off games I left unfinished and cross them off the Limbo List. Namely RPGs like Octopath Traveler, Fire Emblem Three Houses, Trails of Cold Steel 2. There’s not much coming in 2021 I want except for more RPGs (which I’ll mention below), so I figure it’s going to be another year of catching up on games and finishing stuff off. 2. Play more SaGa games. This is a series I’ve really gotten into over the last year, and I want to try out more entries. Started Romancing SaGa 3 and set that to the side but was really liking it, and I’ve been enjoying the Collec
  18. I’m looking forward to watching that movie. I’ve been excited for it since we got a good look at it. Gives me an Inside Out vibe, which I think Soul and Inside share the same director.
  19. Uh oh. Is it like the second new Star Wars trilogy where everyone hated it for some reason? I remember that was a follow up movie where everyone was not happy about it...for some reason.
  20. I wasn’t a fan of Dark Souls 2. It was first Dark Souls game I played (first Souls game was Bloodborne though), and Dark Souls 2 was not a good introduction. I tried going back and beating it after finishing and loving 1 and 3, but DS2 just doesn’t feel right to me. Hidetaka Miyazaki not being a part of the game shows in many aspects, and to me at least it didn’t feel like the From Software games he has a big part in creating. Personally I can’t stand how they changed dodge rolling and basically removed the intended invincibility frames unless you level up certain stats. I’m glad you’re l
  21. The Collection of SaGa has been fun. So far I’m starting the climb of the World Tower in SaGa 1. I’ve had to look up a few things to figure out how leveling/stat gains work after playing for awhile, but I think I understand the basics of the first game’s mechanics. My party is 2 humans, male and female, a Mutant, and a Monster. Humans level/gain stats thanks to items you can easily buy, mutants have random gains like in later SaGa games, and monsters grow from eating meat dropped by enemies. It is a simple game, but it’s been fun. I’m curious what exactly the significance of the World Tow
  22. Bit of a late response, but that’s easily one of my favorite SNK songs. Perfectly fits the hatred between Terry and Geese. If I could form a team of characters just from their themes, it would be Iori, Geese, and Rugal. Iori’s themes are always so good.
