Dragon Quest III iOS. Ready for EO Untold II.

OK, I have a good three hours clocked in FFIX now, so it's time for first impressions!   -I love this game. In this short time of playing, I'm already having a blast, and I'm sure it'll only get be

10/10 picture. You can get a lot of funny pictures in the 3DS version. Shame DQ11S’s camera mode feels so limiting by comparison.

You really should try Ys Memories of Celceta or Ys VIII. Those games aren’t going to be as difficult as Origins is.
One day! But for now I need to play NNK2 for some podcast episode my fool cohost's cohost wanted to do.

And Cat Quest is 6 hours. Haha. I don't need story, I need battles & brevity!

I’m debating about Cat Quest. There’s a few indie games that are real cheap right now I wouldn’t mind getting, but I’ve not heard much mention of Cat Quest.

The cast of the RPGamer weekly podcast are insane cat people and all played through 1 and 2 this year, so I've heard about a ton. Heard what? It's fine. It's got cat puns. That's about all I know. There's nothing deep to it.

Not gonna lie, when I first heard of the game I assumed it was going to be a parody game cat version of Dragon Quest.

They probably played Secret of the Stars just to fight Cat Boo :P

Not even close. It's definitely hack & scratch. Meow! Or should I say Nyan!

Well, I’m already plenty used to cat puns due to Monster Hunter. The localizers work in every kind of cat pun they can when Felynes and the other cat species are involved.

Cat Quest isn’t one I’m dying to check out though, so it may be a pass. Seems like it’s on sale a lot anyway.

Never heard of that game. Is it for the SNES?

Yes. Its a game by Tecmo.

I refer to it as "The most average RPG ever made."

After SNES RPGs like Chrono Trigger, Breath of Fire 2, and Final Fantasy 3, you have cult classics like Earthbound.

Then, you have the average RPGs, like Lufia 1 and 2, Arcana, and Secret of the Stars. They're worth playing, but probably not top priority.

Secret of the Stars had some cool mechanics. It even had two parties, but the secondary party was more of a support role. They are required, but they don't get to fight the bosses.

The game itself just didn't rise to the level of the well known RPGs for the SNES.

Ouch. Such Lufia disregard. Lufia 2 is typically a top 5-10 SNES game.

If course I didn't much find it or Chrono Trigger all that compelling.

I didn't realize it was ranked that high.

Don't get me wrong, if I added more impromptu tiers, Lufia would outrank Arcana and Secret of the Stars. Maybe I just didn't put enough time into Lufia 2?

I love the fact that when you beat the game, you get a "new game plus" feature, which basically boils down to getting extra money and experience from enemies, but if you beat the game again, you get a sort of "plus-plus" feature; you can choose a team of four from any of the friends you gathered in the adventure, and you can then go into the deep dungeon, the dungeon with 99 levels, which is accessible in the regular game, too, but it’s always fun to run in there over and over again.

It sounds like I should get back into Lufia 2. I stopped pretty early, at some clown duo boss battle. I think I only had two characters, and one spirit creature? I must've gotten sidetracked by Pokemon/DQ/FF/Etrian Odyssey.

Have you played all of the Lufia games? Which ones have New Game Plus? Which ones have the Ancient Cave? I played Lufia 3 a LOT, maybe because it was portable.

Check my signature. I think I just did the first 2. One summer long ago when I was breezing through games. I literally remember nothing of them.

The SNES RPG library has never been your thing. Nothing wrong with that, mind. Some just don’t click with folks.

 

In MH Gen Ultimate, I found another Hammer victim, the Gypceros. I HATED this thing in Monster Hunter 4, from the fake out deaths it pulls to the poison it spits to the bright blast it can use to stun you and THAT DAMN TAIL SWIPE. Well, thank you Hammer for letting me finally get some revenge on this monster. Using the Adept hunting style to dodge the blast and poison attacks worked well, and defeating it with a weapon I’m still not super familiar with...oh baby, I’m happy.

I was part of the 40% who voted SNES here:

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/poll/8249-which-nintendo-console-is-your-all-time-favorite

I voted because of the SNES's RPGs, but also because of DKC, Super Metroid, Mario World, Yoshi's Island, and Megaman X 1&2. But, yeah, SNES has always been my favorite system. A big reason is probably my age, too

He meant me. No, SNES era didn't click with me. I'm the perfect age for it, but I barely played mine in high school, just did PC gaming in college, and by the time I started really gaming, it was all GBA & PS2. I missed and have never really cared for the SNES & PS1 era.

Fell asleep with my kids last night reading, so it was me awake at midnight - 2am needing something to do.

Finished off the chapter of NNK2 where I needed to make friends at the forest and casino town. I now have a city being built. Or I guess I do. Finished it up as I was falling asleep before I saw chapter end. Hope to get into empire building tonight.

I can't recall sitting and playing a game for more than an hour for ages.

Played 3 hours of Ni no Kuni 2 last night. I'm really really loving the battle system. I have a feeling that empire building is going to be my jam, although I'm still not at that point yet. Had my first skirmish battle and while it's a bit odd, it's not the crap I keep reading about in reviews. Overall I've sunk nearly 5 hours into the game and I'm really enjoying it!

Got another hour in on NNK2 last night before I totally just fell asleep mid-World Series.  Of course I woke up middle of the night and wasn't tired yet, so started up a smaller title that I'd heard a lot of good things about and clocks in under 10 hours: Cat Quest.  It's on sale for $2 right now and is quite the fun(ny) little ARPG for me right now.  NNK2 rekindled my desire to button mash and chop things up, so a little side chopping now and then is ok too, right?

Platty!

I'm stoked to hear you're working your way out of your gaming funk. Those plateaus suck, but sometimes it's a matter of finding the right game that snatches your attention. It's been a little bit since I've seen you post with an excited tone like the one above. Good for you!!

As for me, oddly enough I found a couple half hour hiatus' over a busy couple days and sunk the total hour into Pokemon Emerald. Snatched a fossil from Mirage tower and got another gym badge. 21 hours logged at this point. This run-through is just going to be about finding a team I like and beating the game. I'm not going to go full-collector. 

I've only got today off before I head into another busy work week. I'll be happy if I can sink an hour into Builders, Digimon, or both.

Was able to play four hours last night on NNK2. Yep, FOUR. Me! Haha. Up to 14 hours now and I spent a good 2 last night just doing every sidequest I could find and complete. Got lots of new citizens and got them researching a bunch. Got all the buildings built and have been working on improving gear. It's a bit crazy how little I've upgraded stuff. Went in and the first bow I could make was like +30 to attack. Heck, a sword dropped off a guy with nearly 120 attack power, and the best ones if been using were 60-80. Such huge gains at points.
 
I just finished off the quest to get a boat & saved as the Sea Queen chapter begun. My wife and youngest son are off to a Halloween party this afternoon and I totally am planning a video game block of time for Plattym4 and me.
 
Thursday and Wednesday didn't provide much time to get on the PS4, so I got a couple more hours into Cat Quest. That game is mindless just cute fun. Hit and dodge and roll!

Completed the Hydropolis chapter just now. That boss battle at the end was one of the most fun ones I've ever done. Traditional battle plus getting to shoot the guy down with the little guys who basically turned into a drone. That was awesome.

I made zero progress in Bloodbourne this week. My friend wanted to do a full co-op run on Dark Souls. Ended up working up a Dark Knight build for fun. I ended up playing that all weekend.

After I am done with Prinny 2, I will be starting Rogue Galaxy. Hopefully next week.

Wrapped up DQ Builders. Absolutely fantastic game. It was nice to play something a little different. And with that, I started playing Divinity Original Sin II. I'm about an hour in. It has a super classic CRPG feel to it which brings back memories. From what I've heard it's got a decent learning curve so hopefully I'll be able to jam another few hours into it before the weekend is over and I don't get to touch my PS4 again for a week. 

I've been doing some grinding in Pokemon Emerald. The last gym battle made me realize my crew is a little weak. Hopefully I come across some better Pokemon to swap in here soon, but we'll see. Emerald has been getting about 30-40 mins a day of my attention, which is pretty perfect for a Pokemon game. 

As for Digimon Cybersleuth, I'm zooming along through the chapters, though I am starting to see a little bit of difficulty increase so I may break off for a bit and do some side missions to level up my team. I think my primaries are sitting in the 30s in terms of level, but that'll change once I Digivolve em again. Still loving this one.

Haven't been able to get back to the PS4 and NNK2 but been getting 20-30 mins per night of Cat Quest. Honestly, it's fine, but the second I lay in bed to play it, I get tired. Been getting lots of sleep, but man, I'd like to finish this. I've defeated 3 of 4 dragons it says I need to.
