Ok... I have to bring this up to all of you guys.

Watch Kanata no Astra

Episode 1 will be super hard because it's basically tvtropes.com

BUT!!!

Once you get past that... the show is all kinds of crazy.
The plot twists are insaaaaaaaaaaane (in the best kind of way).
I can't believe where the show is at episode 10 compared to episode 1.
It's a wild ride.

Wild Arms 3 - I really want to like this game, as I enjoyed the first two (despite their flaws). However, this game is too difficult to be fun for me. The third or fourth dungeon in, you're dealing with multiple (potentially debilitating) status effects, and it's not easy to find/get healing supplies. Usually those are late-game kind of problems. Right now, I'm getting my ass handed to me by the white-robed woman, who one-shot kills Clive, no matter how I try to protect him. Bah. I'll probably try again after a short break. I will admit, perhaps I'm just not trying hard enough, because I've been softened by the likes of Berseria and DQ XI...
I like the game otherwise. The art design is cool, and the music is top notch, as is the case with the first two games.

Watch Dogs 2 - MASSIVE improvement over the first game. Especially the driving aspect. I can easily waste an hour calling gang hits on random people, then calling the cops on those gang members, then calling members from a different gang to fight with the first two groups. I'm enjoying this way more than I ever did GTA V.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Hard to say where I'm at progress-wise, but I'm still in a very early part of the game. Got much, much more to go. I gotta say, I wasn't sure about this game at first, but it grew on me quick. It's still very much a Zelda game, just done a bit... differently. I'm enjoying it.


Not sure why I'm still posting here...

Itís been a while since I posted.   I canít believe I remember my password.   Anyways, I recently finished AC:Odyssey and really enjoyed playing it.  Kassandra is a great protagonist, which is very important for such a long game.   The bounty/mercenary system was a nice addition that kept me on my toes.  My only quibble was the lack of any meaningful romance.  It was really just random hookups. 

I also started Stardew Valley on my iPad.   I could never get into the Harvest Moon games despite a few attempts, so I thought it would be the same with Stardew.  Boy was I wrong.  Perhaps I like it since it seems more like Rune Factory which I adore.  I tend to try to get the farm stuff out of the way so I can go mining or fishing.  Iím so glad I got the hang of fishing on mobile.  It took awhile but I can actually catch fish now.

Beat Super Mario Maker 2's story mode this weekend. Loved the creative level design and multiple styles of Mario you can play.Now I'm playing user created levels. Favourite user created levels are definitely New Donk Festival and Super Castlevania Bros.Big toss up between this game and FE Three Houses as my GOTY. One's platforming bliss while the other is a stellar srpg.

Is it? I played Hard difficulty my first go-through. Dunno if they patched that though.

They're going to add 2 new difficulties in a patch I think. I hope it's more like Conquest's hard difficulties and less like Awakening's Lunatic difficulty (which was just a waste of time).

Oh didn't know that started playing on day 1 so never checked

Haven't played it yet, but I'm disheartened by everything I'm hearing about how easy the game is. I'll get to it eventually, but my backlog still includes slogging through all the supports in Fates: Revelation, so it'll be a while.

Its not easy for newbies, its just that they made it so that none of your squishy characters will get 1 shotted. Also difficulty does get a bit harder when enemy movement is greater. Plus classes like archers can now do serious damage to bosses when in the past arrows used to just bounce off strong characters.  Hard difficulty is supposed to be a good challenge but its locked until new game+ for some reason.

I'm so glad that Vinland Saga finally got an anime. I've been reading the manga for several years now and it's excellent. Gonna have to start watching the anime.
