Tales of Xillia 2[/b]

Spoiler: show
Ludger is Elle's Dad, but not yet.

Not surprised at all by that, but it does justify the Silent Protag thing a bit.  I've really been enjoying this story.

I also played demos of .hack GU Last Recode and and Tales of Berseria.

I need to ask: Velvet is a pedo, right?  Because she definitely came off as a pedo in the demo, but I've heard no one mention that about her.

Grand Kingdom is free for Vita and PS4 this month so downloaded it and played a few hours. Its decent and has got a pretty fun battle system (kind of like what Radiant Historia's battle system should have been). You can character create your own anime army if that is your thing. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing in the game though as I've already been annaliated more than a few times. Not sure how long I'll play it as it looks to be a massive time sink. For now though, it'll do.

Grand Kingdom's art style is so darn beautiful

I do love me the quest clear poses



Also Velvet is not a pedo but I always recommend only playing one tales game/year, the same-y ness of all tales games can get old without a needed break.

Thanks for the reminder. Gotta grab that one. Already bought it on Vita, but I'll take the TV ver. too, please.

Banner saga 3 has gone from a Dec. 2018 release date to a summer 2018 release date. On one hand I desperately want this game, on the other hand I think it feels right playing a BS game in the dead of winter.

Mario Galaxy 2 – I had initially been playing through this… over about 7 years. One of the slowest progressions I’ve ever made in a video game. It’s just one of those that stayed on the back burner for a long time. Not sure why, it’s a great game.
Anyway, now that my son is getting old enough to play more complex games, he has shown great interest in this one. So, we started a new game, and have been playing through it together (taking turns). We just got to World 6, which is being depicted as the final world.  …Can’t be, right? (Don’t actually tell me. I don’t want to know.)

Shadow Warrior (2013 reboot) – Crazy gory game. Crazy fun, too. Hacking limbs and bodies is the shiz-nizzy. The characters are interesting so far. They did a good job at making Lo Wang equal parts bad ass and cheesy.
This game lets me know that I need a better controller for my PC. The X360 one I use (made for PC, apparently) just feels a bit too lacking in quality (which is bullshit, cuz my OG X360 controller is solid).
Anyway, just started Chapter 3.

Suikoden 2 – Just escaped the assault on the mercenary fort/HQ. Currently looking for a way to get into Muse. Glad Shiro is still in my battle party. That guy’s a beast (literally).
Man, L. Blight is one evil sumbitch. I’ve read in various articles over the years that he is not very nice, and indeed, …he is not.

So I got a Nintendo 64 recently and I have some thoughts on it.

In terms of games, though, been playing the Rush series, Pilotwings 64, Beetle Adventure Racing, Nushi Tsuri 64, and Body Harvest, and I've been enjoying all of them immensely. Aaat the same time most of them have really bad framerate issues when you run them on actual hardware that aren't there when you run them on not-actual-hardware (such as the VC) so it's a bit vexing. (Also I guess with Rush 2049 I could've just gotten the Dreamcast version but I like the music in the N64 one more).

Beyond that, playing some Fur Fighters and Toy Commander (and VOOT a little but I can't get past Dordray :B I need to learn how to reduce V. Armor apparently). Also discovered that I like the original SNES Star Fox after all.
