Dragon Age: Inquisition - I'm at the formal ball or whatever where approval of the nobles matters, and need to find out how to advance.

Etrian Odyssey V - On Level 3 of the labyrinth, working on the mission to find the Sunstone at day and the Moonstone at night.

Kingdom Hearts Union X - Still working on the Proud Mode missions, and am past 400.

Resonance of Fate - Still in Chapter 2. I think I'm getting a good hang on the battle system, and have managed to fight well without using the action point-draining run-and-gun mechanic. I've been gaining supplemental levels by swapping weapons among my characters.

Salt and Sanctuary - My character can one-hand a spear now, so I can somewhat safely poke at enemies. I got a katana that's more powerful, so I'll get the skill to one-hand it as well.

Super Mario Odyssey - In the freezing desert, after beating another of the Broodals. Definitely a fun game.

I tried the original Elder Scrolls and wasn't a fan. Don't care much for classic Western RPGs.

Finished the Maze Runner series, and enjoyed it, despite some similarities to the Hunger Games books.

Dragon Age: Inquisition - Still messing around, taking jobs from the lowest point costs to the highest.

Etrian Odyssey V - Still on the first floor. Has slightly suffered from early-game hell, but I can (sort of) heal my characters now, so I'm proceeding smoothly on the first mission.

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross - Still working on Proud Mode missions.

Resonance of Fate - Just got to Chapter 2. Lucked out on the Chapter 1 boss after getting past that battle giving me a slight hard time (with the mobsters or whoever on the raised platform and goblins or whatever around it).

Salt and Sanctuary - A little after the first boss. Pretty sure most know I don't care much for the Souls games, but this actually hasn't been half-bad (largely due to its being 2-D making the gameplay somewhat different from the 3-D Souls titles), and I've found a grinding spot I'm farming so I can use a more powerful spear one-handed. I started out as a paladin. This wooden enemy that follows a trap has somewhat been giving me a hard time, but next time I confront it (after a few levels), I'll try a different approach.

Super Mario Odyssey - Broke down and got a Switch. Was originally to get Breath of the Wild, but due to a mess-up from GameStop I ended up receiving Mario instead, but since both games have been critically acclaimed, I figured what the hell. Been enjoying myself thus far, and am after the opening cutscenes after getting Cappy.

Encountered the first difficulty spike in Resonance of Fate in Chapter 1, where I'm at a sequence of battles, one of which has enemies on a raised central area and lower outer area, with the mobster foes sometimes being inconsistent in whether they take scratch or critical damage, and I'm had to rely on my machine gunner to wear away their scratch HP gauges, although the bottom enemies quickly put my party in critical state. I'll definitely mess around with different strategies.

Have you figured out the weird leveling up, yet?

I know how to level my characters. I did make it past said battle to the boss of the area, and I surprisingly beat it my first try, although I was in "critical" state when I landed the killing blow, so I somewhat got lucky.

Got a new Keyblade in Kingdom Hearts Union Cross in my quest to complete the Proud Mode Quests.

Still having a good time dicking around in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

I finished the Magicans books. Sort of border on literary nonsense, but they weren't total writeoffs.

Finally finished Tokyo Xanadu on my Vita. Good game, but I'm glad to get it over with.

Right now I'm dividing time between The Magicians series by Lev Grossman and James Dashner's Maze Runner books, since the TV series of the former returns next month and The Death Cure comes out later in January. I've just started The Magicians and as I've felt before it's kind of like an adult Chronicles of Narnia, and I've read both prequels to The Maze Runner, which I enjoyed as well.

I watched all four seasons (or parts, as they're termed on Netflix) of Soul Eater. Reminded me a little of Tales of Destiny with weapons having personality, like Excalibur having a somewhat-cute anthropomorphic form.

Don't think I've mentioned it before, but I beat Metroid: Samus Returns earlier this December. Was fairly enjoyable, though they give a disproportionate amount of regular missile upgrades compared to others such as life.

Still messing around in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Also started Resonance of Fate on my PS3. Has a hell of a learning curve, as I spent the first hour messing with tutorials, but it definitely shows promise.

Working on Proud Mode missions in Kingdom Hearts Union Cross.

Haven't made much progress in Tokyo Xanadu, though I'm near the end of the main chapters. Don't know if I'll do the epilogue.

WA2 has a Personal Skill that recovers HP when one's Force Points go up, which can lead to situations where enemies actually heal you when attacking, so yeah, you can definitely break the game's balance.

Still messing around in Dragon Age: Inquistion. Have advanced the main plot a few times, and I haven't had any real trouble.

I'm reading War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy given its alleged influence on authors like Robert Jordan, and it feels sort of like a Tom Clancy novel (though I've only read Clancy's Red Storm Rising), which definitely isn't a bad thing. The short chapters make it more digestible in bites, as well.

Still dicking around in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Think I'm at the last dungeon in Tokyo Xanadu. Glad my Vita's power didn't crap out during the long cutscene that precedes said dungeon.

Working on Proud Mode missions in Kingdom Hearts Union Cross.

I didn't care much for the Hands of Time puzzles and had to use a certain website to solve them.

Still dicking around in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Got close to beating a dragon in the plains area, but ran out of potions and eventually, life.
