Dragon Pilot was weird. I couldn't get into that.

Finished Volume 2 of RWBY, and proceded to plow through Volumes 3-5. Volume 2 was fun, but now that the stakes have ramped up, the writing has taken off, and I've really come to appreciate the story and characters more. I even like Nora now! And Ren. He actually has a personality, who knew? The animation's been steadily improving, though it still has yet to match the promo trailers in terms of fighting choreograhy. Even the best fights just seem bland in comparison. But if the trade-off is better pacing and a tighter narrative, I'll take it.

Oh, and it's nice to hear some of the tunes I've been listening to for years now in their intended context. Songs like "I Burn" and "The Royal Test" have that extra bit of punch to them, now that I can fully understand the meaning of the lyrics (though they still get a lot of it across on their own). I still don't like Volume 3's OP, though. Too harsh.

Fairy Gone looks like it could be very good. Its got the Grimgar LN author behind the scripts and (K)now Name doing the soundtrack.

The final eps of Run w/ the Wind has been sports anime perfection.  sadly it ends tomorrow :(. But its a wonderful anime, as good or better than Chihayafuru my all time fav sports anime. why is no one watching this???

its going to be rough holding out for the next season of The Promised neverland. Tho I might not bother, its a Kodansha anime, so this is probably the only season.

I spunked for netflix last month. So saw a few things there. Blame was excellent. Knights of sedonia seems decent enough. Same for Dragon prince. I couldn't get into Dragon Pilot (only saw 1.5 eps, does it get better?).

I'd definitely be willing to play it again should it come to the Switch.

And so Pi5S is still potentially in the cards.

Atlus: We know we said this about P3 and P4, but there won't be another version of P5

I tried Feudal Alloy on the Switch and thoroughly enjoyed it. One of my first favorite games of the year.

Working on Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition also on my Switch, and think it's great, but not wonderful. There was an error in the synopsis saying that a mansion was east of a city when in actuality it was west, so definite points off for that.

Slowly working on Grandia Xtreme and have mapped the water ruins all the way to what I think is the boss chamber.

In older SRPG haps, I continue with my FE1 playthrough. Currently on Chapter 8 where the game finally starts to bear its fangs. Although I have a blessed Caeda who's puttin' in work. Funny how she doesn't even need a busted Prf to bust ass at this stage of the game as long as she can proc her Str/Def growths once or twice (she's got more than enough Spd to double thieves with a Javelin). Marth is of course incredibly busted in this version, but that's par for the course given his utter lack of competition and just the game's general design (he'll be less busted when I start having to drag him all over creation to pick locks and visit villages). I'm still using Axe users despite losing most of their relevancy by this point, but I can start phasing out the rest of the starting losers like Draug and Gordin next chapter. I should probably use Wendell more, but I don't want to bust the game too hard right now (also, I haven't been able to find any new magic tomes for him nor Merric up to this point, although this also changes by now).

1. Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix
2. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
3. Kirby: Planet Robobot
4. Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition
5. Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy
6. Timespinner
7. Devil May Cry 5
8. Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

Feel pretty good about what I've played so far on the year!  Standouts so far are Timespinner and DMC5 (both of which I adored), and don't feel bad about any of these really.  I didn't love Kingdom Hearts (no surprises there), but I'm particularly glad I finally crossed that one off my list after giving up on my first playthrough 15+ years ago. 

Up next: I'm near the end of Super Mario World (having this unplayed is one of my greatest gaming shames), which I'm playing on a SNES Classic.  I'm also about 15-20 hours into Octopath Traveler (finished 8 Chapter 1's and 1 Chapter 2), about halfway through a replay of Ys: The Oath in Felghana, and BARELY started The Last Guardian.  Want to have all four of those done by the end of April.

I would recommend Kimestsu no Yaiba as I enjoy the manga and the stills I've seen for the anime look very good.

Yeah, the APC is easily one of the best, most useful things in all of VC4.  That said, I'm 100% in support of taking your time on maps and enjoying the gameplay. :)
