1.) King's Quest Ep.1/2
2.) History Legends of War: Patton (Platinum)
3.) Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (Platinum)
4.) Day of the Tentacle Remastered (Platinum)

Just wrapped up DOTT. Haven't played this game since I had it on DOS back in the day (non-talkie version). Basically, everything was exactly how I remembered it, but just prettier. X-COM on Vita has got my interest, but not before I beat Fire Emblem Fates....Yes, I got side tracked from Trails SC again!

Wrapping up chapter 5 on Trails SC. Took a peek at how many chapters are in this game, and wow, it's pretty lengthy. Hoping to have this beat by the end of the month, but no guarantees!

Danganronpa 2 - Finally finished off that annoying Monomi mini game. Probably spent a good 3 hours collecting RNG item drops to get that trophy. Now I just have to grind out the Hope Fragments and complete Island Mode! I can see that Platinum on the near horizon!

1.) King's Quest Ep.1/2
2.) History Legends of War: Patton (Platinum)
3.) Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (Platinum ongoing)

Just wrapped up the main story line in Danganaronpa 2. Saw some of the elements coming, but a few of those reveals were mind benders for sure. Should have the platinum for this game by week's end I'd imagine.

Edit: Wrapped up Danganronpa 2 early yesterday morning! Now on to Trails SC!

I remember there being some news about this coming to Vita.

It is still coming to Vita, is it not?

1.) King's Quest Ep.1/2
2.) History Legends of War: Patton (Platinum)

Trundled my way through Patton on Vita as it was the free offering from PS+. Easy enough game, just didn't get through it as quick as I'd hoped due to time constraints. It's a low budget strategy game that has some strange mechanics such as if you increase your available shots per turn, it also increases the enemies...so while it does give you a boost, the game without it would be far too easy I suppose. You can basically win 18/21 maps or something in this game just by using Snipers and Bazooka units.

I'll now turn my attention to Danganronpa 2. Haven't wanted to play this one after beating the first installment last year due to a fear of burning out. However, the time feels right, and what better way to bookend my 1st platinum, DR1, with my 10th platinum in DR2!

Let's kick off 2016 the right way....by gaming!

1.) King's Quest Ep.1/2

Pleasantly surprised at how good the first episode was. It was exactly what I would expect KQ to be like if it were developed today. I think they really got the feel down, though it is considerably less dark in parts compared to it's predecessors than I remember. Still, very, very well done. Episode 2 on the other hand, is much shorter and far less fleshed out than episode 1. Here's hoping Episode 3 is a step up!

1.) Brandish - The Dark Revenant
2.) The Legend of Zelda -  A Link Between Worlds
3.) Danganronpa - Trigger Happy Havoc (Platinum)
4.) Muramasa Rebirth
5.) Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments (Platinum)
6.) Ar Nosurge - Ode to an Unborn Star (Platinum)
7.) The Legend of Heroes - Trails in the Sky
8.) Demon Gaze
9.) Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth;1 (Platinum)
10.) Steins; Gate (Platinum)
11.) Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth;2 (Platinum)
12.) La Mulana EX
13.) Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed (Platinum)
14.) Dragon Age: Inquisition
15.) Dengenki Bunko Fighting Climax
16.) Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth;3: V Generation (Platinum)

Snagged Neptunia 3 on sale which was fine considering I was going to buy it anyways. Just got all endings for Neptunia 3, and working my way through the platinum (read:grinding). Overall I'd say this is the easiest Neptunia game, with 1 being the hardest, and 2 being the grindiest/RNG (looking at you Stella). Once I platinum this one, that'll be all plats for the 'mainline' games on the Vita. I don' really have plans to play HD Noire, or Producing Perfection at the moment as I have tons of other stuff I need to play including: Stella Glow (about half done) and Trails SC + Cold Steel.

Bioshock Infinite fell by the wayside but oh well. It felt somewhat clunky in comparison to other games I've played recently. I doubt I'll beat another game before the end of year - Stella Glow might be a stretch if I can finish the platinum for Neptunia 3 this week.

Edit: Got the platinum for Neptunia 3 in something like 33 hours or so of gameplay, by far the easiest one of the three. Decided to go with Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy instead of Trails, as I needed a cleanser before jumping headlong into a story heavy RPG. Played a bit more of Stella Glow, but need to level secondary characters which made me start Operation Abyss. I prefer the new character art, so am going with the 'basic' mode over the classic paper doll mode.

Played about an hour and so far it seems a bit more complex than Demon Gaze, so I'll have to work out the systems on it.

Haven't listened to the full episode yet, but just a couple thoughts on the Character of Aya Brea.

1. Considering the time in which the game was made, do we have to consider the ripple effects of Lara Croft having some bearing on Aya?

2. Also her age, she is 25(!) in the game. Even Lightning is only 21 or so in FFXIII. Is 25 not considered 'old' in terms of game characters who are protagonists, especially considering the demographics of the time? Additionally, she is half-Japanese to account for the events of the novel which I think acts as a prequel to the events of PE?

3. Aya's hair in her character art is very reminiscent of "The Rachel".

Beat DA:I in about 69 hours and change over the last week or so. Wasn't really intent on going for the platinum for this one but just wanted to focus experience it. What a great game despite the jank on the PS3. The last boss was an absolute cake walk on hard mode. I feel the fight prior to him (in the ruins) was much more difficult.

Either way it was very enjoyable, and now I will turn my attention to Bioshock Infinite which has been sitting in my backlog for ages due to PS+. Hopefully I can polish that off by Thursday evening.

Good episode, good insights and I still say Random Encounter is the most intelligent RPG discussion out there.

On that note, Xenoblade Chronicles/Cross/X for the new N-Cross system? Anyone? No?

Alright.

Snagged the platinum for Hyperdimension Neptunia U. That last one was quite grindy, and the fan service got tiresome (thankfully the worst of it can be turned off once you get the tougher clothes). Overall this game had some really solid gameplay, keeping it short and sweet for the most part making it perfect for picking up and playing on the go. The frame rate is super smooth as I don't think I noticed any lag/slowdowns through my 30 hour playthrough.

Currently playing Dragon Age Inquisition....on PS3. Man some of the textures and lag in this game...just ouch. Nevertheless, still very fun!

Princess Maker.

What on earth did you just make me Google?

Spent many an hour Princess Maker 2 (korean version) as a young kid. Looking back on it now, you could send your adoptive daughter to some pretty seedy places...

Basically you train up your princess ala Long Live the Queen. Micro manage everything from diet, work, studies, vacations/adventures with the hope that she will become a princess. From what I remember, it was pretty tough to do in PM2. The easy route is to send her to a farm to work for 18 hours a day, sleep, repeat (pays the most) and build up her physical strength. Make her a warrior and have her compete in tournaments. You'd really have to screw up to kill her, as she'd mostly just run away and become rebellious if you mismanaged her.

I can't recall if I ever made her a princess. I think there might be an english fan translation floating around somewhere on the internet.

So, I finished the To The Moon miniisodes... I don't even know what to think about the twist ending...  I wish I had someone I could talk to about it.  Steam is down atm, too, so I can't go on those forums and ask around.  But it was a really crazy twist and I have no idea what it could mean...

Anyways, I finally got around to playing Long Live The Queen.  Please tell me somebody here has played it.  Odd little game, but addictive.  Sort of a... kind of Oregon Trail for weeaboos?  Is that an offensive term?
Anyways, I didn't really know what direction to go in, playing it, so I decided to just make the main character a reflection of my wife. I must have done a good job, because she died from eating a poisoned chocolate. That was always going to be the way my wife was assassinated, if she were a princess...

Played this game back when. It's like a lite version of Princess Maker. Enjoyable enough. So many ways to end up in the ground it's sort of amusing.
