I'm a few hours into Dragon Age: Inquisition and have had fun just dicking around. I'll be on vacation from tomorrow until Tuesday, and I'll have Tokyo Xanadu on my Vita, which I've already logged plenty of time into, and Metroid: Samus Returns, which I haven't started yet, to keep me busy.

I've pretty much made it a point to avoid pre-Awakening Fire Emblems, since they're essentially masturbatory aids for masochists.

We get it. You don't enjoy challenging games.

It's not that I don't like challenging games, it's that I don't like games that are just artificially difficult like the Souls games. I guess I just don't care much for hard 3-D action games since you have to deal with additional shit absent from 2-D games like the camera. I liked Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, for one.

Yeah, I definitely don't like it when characters I like suffer and those I hate get away with being jerks.

Watched ID-0, which sort of reminded me of Avatar, and Neo Yokio, which was a bit poorly-acted but still a guilty pleasure.

I enjoyed HZD, but as with most Western RPGs it seems like they really didn't care with regards to the soundtrack.

A few hours into Dragon Age: Inquisition, and I've been having fun doing sidequests without actually advancing the main storyline.

Grinded a little in Grandia II Anniversary Edition, and will give the endgame another go.

I got to the second of the final boss battles in Grandia II, only to get my ass handed to me, but fortunately, I kept a save before the point of no return, so I can grind for levels and magic and skill points.

Yeah, Dragon Quest needs to fucking get rid of its archaic turn-based mechanics, like random turn order, or just flipping have a turn order meter.

Yeah, P5 definitely overstayed its welcome.

Dragon Quest games for me are largely consistent in quality, so if you like at least one, you'll likely enjoy the others but if not, then don't bother than the rest. The first six games in the series are available on iOS devices (and the eighth, though I wouldn't recommend that version).

At Ryudo's hometown in Grandia II Anniversary Edition. Game crashes occasionally, but it's been generally smooth sailing (have yet to encounter slowdown), in spite of unskippable spell animations slightly marring the pace of combat.

In said final dungeon of Trails 3rd, can you at least buy new equipment for them and grind before the actual final boss? Because I don't like unwinnable situations in RPGs...

I read The Light Fantastic, the first Discworld sequel, using Debbie Drum's reading system, and though it slowed my typical reading speed, I was able to write a four-paragraph review alongside the notes I took, so it probably worked.

Started Grandia II Anniversary Edition on my PC. Aside from the occasional crash, it works like a champ, even though my system didn't meet the minimum graphical requirement.

I read a guide to reading better by Debbie Drum entitled Read Better Faster, which basically consists of text-to-speech accompaniment when reading e-books, which I'll definitely give a whirl.
