  1. I ended up playing a lot of multiplayer games in the last couple weeks. After wanting to play it for a while, I ended up getting the Halo Master Chief Collection and have been spamming matches a lot. I have a ton of nostalgia for some of these games since I played an obsessive amount of Halo 1-3 back during my high school days. I feel like I am reliving my "Halo dude bro" years again. I am really thankful they released it on PC. Just a shame that Rare Replay is still Xbox exclusive. Literally the only Xbox One game that I would even bother with right now.

    Grandia

    I was planning on giving a more detailed log to play while playing the game, but I just kept playing the game in small sessions and felt like it wasn't worth posting about 1 hour of gameplay each time. Then I just forgot to post about it. Oops. Either way, I completed Grandia 2. In terms of story and characters, I really don't have much to say about it. Only that it was serviceable. The story did pick up towards the end, but the rest of the game just felt "okay". I didn't really care much for the characters this time around either. The original Grandia was far stronger with characters

    Grandia

    I am about a good 15 hours into Grandia 2. Enjoying it so far. The story and characters don't really hold my attention that much. Though it seems like I am making a lot more progress in this game for how much faster the combat is flowing. Hard difficulty seems to be a decent balance. Enemies are easy, but the bosses push back a bit.
  4. I just completed my first playthrough with Dark Souls 2. Yeah, it doesn't hold up to the original. While I ranted about agility before, the surprise moments just seemed to stop happening. The level design was uninspiring and boring. The bosses were mostly dead easy. The difficulty mostly came from a select few bosses or some stupid enemy gauntlets. The DLC is top tier. I just wish the entire game had this good level design and bosses. Especially with the ice area's final boss. That was probably my favorite fight in the entire game. The DLC was easily the best moments of the game. Also,

    Grandia

    I started up Grandia 2 a couple days ago. Since I found the first game to be really easy, I decided to start in hard mode. I gotten a third party member and enjoying it so far. I was thrown off at the start. This game seems to have a bit of a darker tone over the original. The voice acting is on par on what I would expect, and the gameplay mechanics itself is what I would expect too. Glad they stuck with the combat system. The new mana egg system is good so far. The only problem is that I am now super paranoid I might miss one in a dungeon. So I will most likely be a lot more atte
  6. Yeah, so I am putting POOT away for now. The thing that was keeping me invested into the game was the mining. Since it is a massive improvement and really well done. It also doesn't lag in there. Since my last post, I suppose I can mention some positives. The music is surprisingly good Best mining system. No stupid and shallow combat. Just dodging moles that drain stamina. The game boots up and has a functioning title screen Really all I can say about it. The frame rate is just getting worse as I progress. The progression pacing isn't as bad as I thought originally. Go
  7. The original is so good! I played it a long time ago, so I don't remember much about it. All I remember is that I didn't like 2 that much.
  8. Do you have a Wii U? Both games are up on there for $10 each.
  9. I picked up and played Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. I am not even done with the first season and I think I am already done with the game unless they patch it soon. I have a list of complaints. You use devices to craft one item at a time like Stardew. But they take up 2x2 squares and you need TONS of them. So your farm is going to look bad with these machines all over. Character dialogue is a joke. Not a deal breaker with me. But all the villagers in the game have a personality of a cardboard box. Events were bad. I only did the Easter Egg Hunt. But that ev

    Grandia

    I finally managed to complete Grandia this afternoon! After the last time I posted, I managed to find the third and final side dungeon. I would have never found it without looking it up online. Once again, I tried again to tackle the entire dungeon in one night. I think it took me roughly 4 hours to get through all of it. The dungeon mazes were fine, but there were so many enemies that caught me off guard that I ended up losing a lot of steam by time I got to floor 8. The rewards from completing it was really good at least. The rest of the story was pretty good. The story was

    Grandia

    I just got passed the previous part, and got a new party member. Who I am assuming is the final party member you get for the game. A bit of a shame that this character has such weak stats. Even after saving up all the perma stat boosts on them, they still are not up to par to the rest of the party. Was a nice surprise for them joining though. I managed to get through the mountains, and stopped at J Base.
  12. I still use Microsoft Office 2007. The last update came like 10 years ago, and they just dropped support for it about 3 years ago. I am very well aware of the security vulnerabilities of using such old software, but I rarely use it. I never even open up documents from the internet or anything. So I just never bothered on moving to something new. I mainly do spreadsheets over anything, and I do nearly all of that on google anyways. I should probably get around to uninstalling it. I will do so right now.

    Going on about those side areas. Soldier's Graveyard was one hell of an experience. Only one save point? Lots of monsters that are resistant to the weapons I was leveling? Lots of hidden paths? Oh man. I thought I could tackle this place in an hour but that was a big no. I also made the mistake of going after the boss without saving. The bosses in the game have been fairly easy for me at that point, and I just went for it. What a mistake. This was the first boss that I actually had to use items. The panic settled in real quick with the fact that I could have lost about 2 hours of progress.
  14. On top of it not being a real remaster and just a running emulator with an upscaler with texture replacements. And making it limited time to cause fear of missing out!
  15. Apparently it is a glitch that is caused by the Switch Block. I found this list SMB3 glitches and it was listed in there. https://www.mariowiki.com/List_of_Super_Mario_Bros._3_glitches#Koopa_in_Brick_Blocks
