I've played (and loved) 999 but never played VLR. This news was too much. VLR is in the mail.

Persona 4 Golden: my 4th run of Persona 4 in 3 years, 2nd on Vita.  Two more tasks until I have the Platinum trophy: complete the full compendium, which will happen once I grind to level 93 and fuse Lucifer (currently level 91); and defeat Margaret, which I will attempt as soon as I get Lucifer.  Probably will take care of that this week. 

Paper Mario: been playing this off and on since January or February, but I'm not too far from the end. I have six of the seven Star Spirits and I'm doing some Super Block hunting before I start up the quest for the seventh.  I want to finish this one by the end of July, which is quite doable. 

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time & Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask: I'll be housesitting for some friends in mid-July and I won't be dragging along game consoles (since I'll also be working full-time and taking care of their dogs), but I figure I'll have my handhelds to play with.  Very, very early into both of those two, but I want to put some hard time into them throughout July, after I finish P4G.

My Mount Rushmore for shows like this are Firefly, Veronica Mars, Crime Story, and Pirates of Dark Water. They last one frustrated me to no end when I was 7 or 8 years old.  They canceled the cartoon when the heroes had I only found seven of the 13 treasures!

I'm grinding for the last few Godly Robes I can get in Persona 4 Golden, and it's a pain in the ass.  I also tend to lose count of how many times I've run a floor of the dungeon and screw up generating the Reaper.  Whatever.  Wish it was a little less tedious. 

But at least I'm still on the road to Platinum!  New Game Plus run, and my only trophies before plat are max S.Links (have all but rank 9 on Hunger), max Compendium (currently at 97%), fuse the secret World Persona, and defeat the superboss in the epilogue.  Very doable in the next week or two.  Will only be my second platinum!

I would say so, especially since it's at a low price point.  It's a cool mystery and a really unique way of experiencing it.  I stumbled on to one of the game's twists early on by using a pretty innocuous search term, got super surprised, and ended up experiencing the rest of the game looking for clues and evidence leading to the twist.  It's crazy.  I would play ten murder mystery games in this format.

Yeah, holy shit, Sony dropped some bombs.  I would have been impressed by one out of three of those.  And Ratchet, Uncharted, and Horizon Zero Dawn all look really good!  

Lost in the shuffle of yesterday's announcements, Capcom announced two returning Street Fighter V characters with a pretty dope trailer: Cammy (who looks awesome, natch) and FUCKING BIRDIE!?  Birdie was one of the SF1 characters that returned for Alpha (alongside Adon and Gen) but hasn't been in a non-remake since 1997 or 1998.  What the fuck.  And now he has more chain techs and can breathe fire!?  Dammit Capcom, you're making me actually want to buy one of your games again.  

Here's the trailer.  Whatever.  I'm intimidated by how highly technical the new V-System stuff works.

Jupiter Sigil appeared as a prize in Blitzball!  It was a league prize, so I have to play a full 10-game season to get it; I just did a few, so now it's 7 more games but holy shit it's almost 2 AM.  After I get that, I'll have fully-powered weapons for four characters (Wakka, Auron, Yuna, and Rikku) and start messing around in the Arena more.  I've been using guides, but MAN Final Fantasy X opens up in some interesting ways once you get to the endgame.  I just wish that this content was accessible earlier, easier to find, and a little more transparently advertised.  I'll chat plenty about it at the next Retro Encounter recording.  


Forwards: Tidus, Datto
Midfielder: Kiyuri
Defenders: Naida, Ropp
Goalkeeper: Nimrook
Bench: Brother, Zalitz
Players I had earlier and eventually dropped: all the Aurochs except Datto, Zev Ronso, Wedge, Linna, Miyu

Earthbound is a great game.  Mother 3 is a great game.  Mother 1 is actually kinda bad.  A few of the mid-game and endgame dungeons are broke.  It's a game with a few neat story ideas that ultimately isn't very good.  Reading a wiki synopsis is more fun than actually playing the game.

I'll take anything from Atlus and Falcom regarding release dates on their RPGs, plus some more gameplay from that SEXY Ratchet & Clank reboot.  I'm such a R&C fanboy it's kinda hilarious.  I might have to get a PS4 for more Ratchet (and for Bloodbourne and RPG stuff, natch). 
26  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: June 11, 2015, 08:53:13 PM
More FFX.  Saved halfway through (maybe near the top?) of Mt. Gagazet.  I'm holding off on Blitzball until I have the airship, so I can poach certain players with some more travel freedom (looking at you, Nimrook).  Once that's done, though, it'll be monster arena hunting (for the Mars Sigil) and lots and lots of blitzball (for the Jupiter Sigil). 
27  Media / RPGFan Music Discussion / Re: When a game ruins good music on: June 08, 2015, 06:25:11 PM
...no, not exactly.  I never feel that a game ruins the music, but MANY MANY times has a game not lived up to its incredible soundtrack.  One of my favorite examples is the killer battle music in Grandia Xtreme*:

Combat 3
Combat 4

GX's combat system is actually solid, but MAN is it a letdown overall as an RPG.  Especially since the first two Grandia games are really, really good. 

*shoutout to Wild Armor, who's a Grandia superfan who knows these OSTs backwards and forwards.

Playing the bejeezus out of Final Fantasy X.  Just reached the second save point in Macalania Woods.  Also played two tournaments and one full regular season of Blitzball.  I am a little shocked at how much I'm enjoying Blitzball.  No joke.  Vilucha and Ropp are total bosses.

All of this news is fantastic!  They 100% have my money for TITS 2nd Chapter and Cold Steel 1, and will have my money for Cold Steel 2 if I enjoy the first one well enough (a strong possibility).  

And hell, I know this is optimistic, but there's a chance that 2016 gives us Cold Steel 2, Tokyo Xanadu, AND Ys 8 all in English in the same year!  That's insane!  I hope it happens!  It probably won't but don't bring me down just yet!  (Tokyo Xanadu comes out this September in Japan, and Ys 8 has an unspecified 2015 Japanese release date that may yet get pushed back)

Also, I'm betting that July's edition will be a Secret
We have already chosen episode 3's game, and we'll probably say exactly what it is on episode 2-3 (which hasn't been recorded yet).  We took several of the suggestions from earlier in this thread, then did an internal vote among the RPGFan staff on the Retro Encounter staff page.  Please look forward to hearing about it! 

And my quick thoughts on how to say "Olivier" - I always pronounced it the same as Sir Laurence Olivier's name: "oh-liv-ee-ey."  The French way.
