Dragon Quest VIII 3DS - Beat the first of the Dragonivian Trials. I'm keeping a spear on hand for the hero and an axe on hand for Yangus so they can use their critical hit-or-miss abilities on metal enemies to make grinding easier.

Horizon Zero Dawn - Hard to say where I am, but I'm having a blast exploring the vast open world.

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross - I finally beat the witch boss with the healing cat and have been breezing along, getting to the latest Quest.

I beat Undertale Vita on my family reunion trip, and was generally happy aside from the lack of indicators as to which areas had random battles (I had to grind a little since I basically said "screw it" when going the pacifist route) and infinite-looping bad ending.

I also beat Dragon Quest VIII 3DS and am working on the post-game content, which I'm glad actually adds to the story.

Still stuck on Quest 660 of Kingdom Hearts Union Cross, since I can't kill that damn healing cat fast enough.

Glad they seem to be keeping the gameplay 2-D.

A few days ago I finished rereading the Redwall and Dune books. I like how most of the former books pretty much stand alone, but most of them feature essentially the same plots. I enjoyed the Dune books as well, but they go a bit overboard with cloning late in the series chronology.

Started Discworld and will parallel-read the Barsoom books.

Hit the 24-hour mark in DQ83DS. I really love the improved item synthesis system since it shows which items are usable in creating new ones while darkening out those that aren't, and I can more easily keep healing items on hand in case my healers run out of MP since the synthesis occurs instantaneously. I've been using Angelo and Jessica mostly as magicians and the hero and Yangus as my heavy-hitters. Right now I have to go to the sculptor's tower, and am down to three party members.

You've pretty much won FFTactics when you get Cidolfas and use him. Definitely didn't like how characters were basically forgotten once they officially joined your party.

I definitely prefer WA2 to say, Chrono Cross, but the translation is definitely bad at times, particularly regarding Liz and Ard.

I've been gaming more lately, and have put about ten hours into Dragon Quest VIII 3DS. I have a full party now and got my horse and carriage back from Red.

I beat Stick of Truth. Good, but not great, since the fart / puzzle mechanics were somewhat esoteric, and I noticed a glitch where the messages telling you how to use skills became garbled, and necessitated that I quit and restart the game.

I'm up to the one-hour mark in Dragon Quest VIII 3DS, and I'm a little lost but still having fun. Like how they actually show how many skill points are necessary to get new skills when using skill points from leveling.

Still working on Stick of Truth. The battles are generally good aside from the lack of a defense option, but the puzzle mechanics are somewhat esoteric at times, and I in fact spent nearly an hour practicing a cup fart with Randy Marsh before realizing I was using the wrong analog stick. Made me feel so fucking stupid.

I played a smidgen of Dragon Quest VIII on the 3DS (about a quarter hour, I've had less gaming time lately due to other hobbies), and I don't think the graphics look nearly as bad as many static screens make them out to be. I like the ability to make battles faster, though not nearly to the levels of Persona 5 or Zodiac Age.

Use proper grammar, as well. "It's" is a contraction of "it is", and "its" is the possessive of "it". Its' is not a word.

Still working on South Park: The Stick of Truth, and broke one of the kids out of detention. Had to consult a guide since I was unaware that field abilities were necessary to advance through areas, but I'm now aware of them.

I think the Dragon Quest series is as big in Japan as the Grand Theft Auto games are in the West.  Sadly, Dragon Quest doesn't enjoy anywhere near that popularity in the West.
Square-Enix's North American branch seems to act like the games don't even exist.

Personally, I think Persona 5 very much overstayed its welcome. Not a bad game, but not ZOMGperfect either IMO.

Played an hour (more like an hour in the half since the in-game clock seems slow) of South Park: The Stick of Truth. Not a huge fan of the show, but I've been enjoying it thus far.

Ugh, I hated Spheda, satanic golf incarnate.
