I'm almost done with Demon's Crest, but I need to do this stupid headbutting mini-game in order to get the best ending, and it's sooo hard...it's like waka-mole, but you have to jump, and there's a delay every time you try to whack that you have to account for, but 1/10th of a second can mean the difference between making contact and being just off...ugh...guess I'll focus on Lost Odyssey for now...

^Please, Nintendo, announce Donkey Kong Country 1-3 for the Virtual Console. I'm tired of all 5 of the people who still care about VC whining so loudly about their absences...

Played Lost odyssey until I got to the first Dream novellette. I do not regret playing this game again.

Finally: This commercial.

Okay, now I kinda really want to play this game (well, again, but I didn't get too far before. Ironically this commercial got me to play it the first time, too). Guess I know what's after Demon's Crest now...

I'm more than halfway through Demon's Crest already and I just bought it on the Wii U VC yesterday. I think I've explored most of the forst 4 levels completely explored, so now I'm going to focus on V and VI. Just need: 5 more health extensions (I know where 2 of them are already), one more urn (know where it is...sort of...), one more Vellum (or did I get that already?), 3 more talismans, 1 more fire power, and 1 or 2 more crests (not sure if I can get the last one before the final boss), then I'll go and fight the big nasty.

You should try beating the game without getting everything (at least all the Crests) first. Just so that you can compare it to what happens when you do have them all.

Yeah, but...since this has password saves I kinda don't want to do that just yet. I honestly haven't written down a single password yet...

Well, first Hobbit was good fun. Second one got really rocky at times.

Anyways, I liked most of the Marvel movies so far...well, the first one in each series at least. Every two has sucked so far, except the X-Men "past" one. Both of those are actually my favorites so far. And Guardians of the Galaxies was so good I actually went out and bought the comics, though I've still yet to read them. I'm glad they're letting us know what's coming down the pipeline, although I'll probably forget what's coming out until a few months before their releases...

What IS a good reason to get a PS3, then :S

That's...a good question actually. :/ I love my PS3 and I have a lot of games for it, but none of them are beyond "nice to have" that aren't available on the PC or 360...except I guess 3D Dot Game Heroes? Depends on how much you liked A Link to the Past and Dragon Quest I guess...

Just beat Risky's Revenge. Only missed 2 items, which I just went back for. Now I have to beat the final boss again and I'm set for a complete.

It was a fun romp, just like the last. Better in some way, but definitely feels like a prequel to a much more in-depth game - imagine if A Link to the Past stopped after Agahnim and said "Evil is still at large! Stay tuned for more thrilling adventures in the next game!" That's how I feel with this. It's nice, but just knowing there could've easily have been so much more, especially since the original even was a much bigger game, actually holds it back, and I don't say that often. Still, if my only complaint is that I want more of it, it must be doing something right. Besides, that problem mostly stems from the severe file-size limit DSiWare had, and Pirate's Curse just came out last week, so I'll be on that...in a few weeks. I'm kinda Shantae'd out, and for real this time...

Played Shantae (GBC) from beginning to end last week. Fun rimes. Glad I was playing the VC version, though. Game's kinda hard. Now I'm playing Risky's Revenge, and it's easier, but kinda feels less impressive since it's a DSi game. At least it controls way smoother, which is mainly why its so much easier. Definitely seems short, though...I'm halfway done already. :/

probably moreso with friends

Not really.

The problem with playing SoM with friends is that nine times out of ten, you're growing up in a crappy suburban neighborhood and your friends are just whoever's around that's your age, and then they end up like robbing your parents.

:\

...yeah, that sounds about right...;_;

To be fair, I still like Secret of Mana, but it...really is full of frustrating design decisions, some of which were clearly made as a compromise rather than because it would make the game more fun. It's enjoyable, probably moreso with friends, but I don't feel it's a well-aged classic.

And yes, despite my apparent love of FFA, it's dungeon design thus far (I'm approximately 2/3s through the game) has ranged from okay-but-forgettable to flat-out terrible (that mine cart level can go screw itself). Then again, I think it's trying to be more like Zelda, and 9 times out of 10 I hate Zelda's dungeon design, so maybe it's just a design philosophy I don't agree with. :\

You know, I was thinking of making a thread about the Mana series.

Except I was gonna call it: "Final Fantasy Adventure: The Only Good Mana Game?"

I need to try Legend of Mana first before I do that, though I've not heard good things...
29  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: October 18, 2014, 06:47:28 PM
This is what happens when you don't play a game for like five years.

Which is why I have yet to finish Okami despite getting far at least 3 times. :P

The stat-downs I figured had something to do with how I was playing and wasn't too bothered about. I mean my character got brain-damage or something from a hefty blow by a boss and got his whole level dropped one peg.
