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.

Shameless plug for Dark Cloud while we’re talking PS2 games 😋

I’m looking forward to Legend of Mana Remastered too. Never played the original, but after watching an in-depth video about the game a while ago (and because I’m glad to see Square Enix remastering ga

Just got the platinum on Saga Frontier in about 61 hours. It was really good! It’s still one of my favorite SaGa games, along with SF2.
My goodness. I put 65 hours into DQM2, but that took a full month. Congrats!

DQ II - I got a ship and now the world is mine to explore! 
 

Ni No Kuni - Got an important stone from a cold place. Time to drift off into some side quests and bounties.

 

Bravely Default - Got the Red Mage Asterisk. I was going to wait to max out my current jobs but I couldn’t resist getting another decent healer on-board who can also do some physical and Magical Damage. Hopefully it pays off.

Man, I just couldn't stay awake last night.  Even woke up in the middle of the night to play (something I do if I go to sleep before 9pm like I did last night), but my brain was too fuzzy.  Got in a little time when I finally woke up at 5am before my alarm, but... 

Started Yo-kai Watch Blasters, I'm team Cat.  Already loving being back in the Yo-Kai world.  Don't care a damn lick about all the assets they reused, I love walking around familiar towns again.  100% a rip on Ghostbusters, and loving it for that.  When the hearse pulls out of the ole' fire department HQ, there's a huge TATARI billboard in the background, with the logo looking like the ATARI one, but in the shape of a T.  All great stuff.  I spent a good 5-10 hours playing Blasters stuff in Yo-Kai Watch 3, so I'm glad to be able to revisit that.  The gameplay is pretty tame so far as I'm only about 80 minutes in, gotta work on being a better part of a team as I'm just tearing through stuff solo so far and my team barely keeps up.

SaGa Frontier Remastered: Still slowly working through Red’s story. I find this game is easy to play for an hour or two then set it down for the night. These SaGa games are good for playing in chunks.

Anyway, I took down the first of the leaders from BlackX, Berva. Funny enough, you actually meet this guy earlier on in Red’s story in the masked material arts tournament in the Shingrow region. Defeating him was difficult since you have fight his boss fight twice (first time you beat him he retreats to try and safe his own skin) but I managed to win and was rewarded with Shingrow Palace blowing up! Wait, that’s not a good thing!

Jokes aside, I wasn’t expecting that, nor did I expect one of the ruins in that region to be an important part of BlackX’s plans. I know I’m only into my second story with the game, but I like that you get to learn new details about areas you may have previously gone to in another story.

They make me think about a "in chunks" phrase too. emoji8.png

 

You just need to learn how to play from this:

Yeah. You know, I get bad Intel. I keep hearing (incorrectly) that Romancing SaGa 2 and SaGa Frontier aren't "too SaGa". And I play them and they're SaGa personified.

Random question, because I’ll eventually try the two SaGa games I bought for Switch, do they have save-anywhere features or do you have to save at particular points?

Save anywhere.

Perfect. Glad most Switch RPGs are going to that style of saving.

That’s been a thing with the SaGa series since the original Gameboy game, my dude. And you’ll want it.

Oh, I bet. And with the way you’ve talked about the difficulty in figuring out what to do next, taking notes doesn’t sound like a bad idea.

Wish I did that from the beginning of DQ II, I am wandering around the world like a lost lamb at the moment 😂

SaGa Frontier: Getting close to ending Red’s story...I think. I’ve beaten 3 of the 4 BlackX Emperors now, and it seems the last one is in Kyo. Reached the town and sure enough, saw a pilgrim from the beginning of Red’s story heading for the building I met M. Black earlier in Red’s story. Sure enough, there was a hidden entrance to an underground base there, so we’ll see who the next Emperor is I’ll be going after. If we’re going with the rest of the Emperors and how the story has played out, I bet I’ve already met the next Emperor via one of the NPCs I’ve met before now. Gotta give the game credit for introducing you to the villains of Red story at different points.

Anyway, after the last time I played and wound up inside Tanzer because of the Rune Quest (which is optional on Red’s route), I was finally able to get out and get my party better equipped thanks to the gold market. It definitely helped with fighting Shuzer in Koorong, that’s for darn sure. Haha

SaGa Frontier: Finished Red’s Story today. After beating the 4th Emperor you are invited back to the Cygnus and, with the help of the ship’s crew, you sneak on to the Black Ray ship. That was an annoying dungeon, I’ll tell you what. You can freely look around for what treasures are available, but as soon as you run into Metal Black on the bridge, you have to avoid him and not re-enter the same rooms until you get the notification that the ship will soon land. Finding the right path to avoid MB until then took a lot of retries, but I finally found the right path to get the mech part I was wanting.

Thankfully, that nonsense makes way for the final dungeon. You get to use Alkaiser mode for the entire final dungeon, you get to go all out on a rematch with the 4 Emperors, and finish strong with one final showdown with Metal Black and the head honcho of BlackX. Thankfully you get the chance to heal inbetween all the back to back boss fights, which is a blessing because if you didn’t you’d have to really do some serious resource management.

Red’s story was pretty fun overall. Certainly a lot easier time than I had with Blue’s story. Red/Alkaiser was fun as a playable character, and it was neat seeing new sides to areas from Blue’s story. 

Going to start up T2’s story next.

I've got 5ish hours into Yo-Kai Blasters so far. Enjoying it. It's a nice little something to do when I'm watching TV. Not enough to it to hold my attention on its own. But that's perfectly fine for a chill experience now. Gotta figure out what's big on deck next.
