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)
5.) Stranger of Sword City (Platinum)
6.) Trails in the Sky SC
7.) Stella Glow

Finished up Stella Glow late last night with the True Ending route. The game itself is filled with a lot of tropes, and the super power of friendship, but I still really enjoyed it overall. Solid SRPG that took about 46 hours or so according to my 3DS. Now that it is out of the way, I can turn my gaming focus to Trails of Cold Steel.

3.) Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (Platinum)
4.) Day of the Tentacle Remastered (Platinum)
5.) Stranger of Sword City (Platinum)
6.) Trails in the Sky SC

Finally, finally, finally beat Trails SC. After playing it on and off over the past few months since it's release, I decided there was no better time than now to finish it. Had about 1/3 of the game left I think, and the finale was well paced. Overall a fitting end for the duology and a satisfying experience. Kind of wish I'd beaten it sooner now.

I suppose either Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright or Stella Glow will be next, as I am part way through both though I'm not sure which I want to play. Maybe I'll just say forget it and play DQ4 or start Trails of Cold Steel.

and...no Vita version...

Argh, had a little bit of hope that it would make it to Vita, but I guess not.

That is unfortunate.

So having beat Stranger of Sword City i figured I'd better wrap up Trails SC. Sometimes that game has too much text for it's own good. I don't know if it's just age at this point, or the desire for games to move along but man, so much text! XSeed wasn't kidding when they said there was tons to translate.

That being said, just like FC, it has a lot of heart. Just started chapter 8 (which I presume to be the final chapter) so I'll just try and power through it this week. Maybe i'll look into completing Stella Glow next. Really enjoyed my time with that game until I got side tracked with other stuff.

5.) Stranger of Sword City (Platinum)

Went from DOTT -> Fire Emblem Fates -> Stranger of Sword City. FE lost steam for me around Chapter 23,  will probably pick it up again, but I still need to beat Stella Glow as well. As it was, I wasn't really feeling the whole SRPG thing at the moment, and so I snagged Stranger of Sword City. This game is what I had hoped Operation Abyss would have been (as a follow up to Demon Gaze), but was not due to the older system of that game.

Sword City felt more like a continuation from Demon Gaze, and I was hooked in by that great art style from the get go before it was announced for NA. There were about two frustrating difficulty spikes in the game, but it is nowhere near as grindy as Demon Gaze was. The Perma-death isn't really an issue as long as you've got some decent characters on the benches waiting for their turn. Currently about 45 hours in, and just a few more trophies left, none of which should be very difficult. Overall a very solid DRPG experience. If you enjoyed Demon Gaze, this improves on it in everyway.

Edit - Stranger of Sword City, Platinum Get!

Merlin Dolls were literal life savers in the final fight. Honestly not sure how your tank is supposed to survive those multi-hit KOs. My tank was dying 3 times per turn lol. Honestly, this game was head over heels better than DG, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Spent time grinding in the end looking for that last lineage, but it never turned up, and just went through the final boss gauntlet - which was surprisingly easier than I thought it would be. Total game time clocked in at 51:56.

Currently trundling through Stranger of Sword City on Vita. Such a great DRPG. It's a nice step up from Demon Gaze, and it's what I had hoped Operation Abyss would have been.

At about 36 hours played, I feel I am nearing the end. This one might actually be easier to get the platinum than Demon Gaze, so I might aim for that. Hopefully the RNG is kind to me, but I doubt it.

Made it part way through Fire Emblem Fates Birthright, but sort of lost interest around chapter 18?

Started playing Stranger of Sword City on the Vita, and it's what I had hoped Operation Abyss New Tokyo Legacy should have been. I guess it's like an upgraded Demon Gaze, but that makes sense since it isn't tied to any old game engine/mechanics like OA was.

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!
15  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Completion List 2015 on: December 24, 2015, 02:36:40 AM
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.
