Planet Dob - Took a bus to the... TV station? Police station? and played a minigame where I had to throw a planet into this pink clamshell thing on a plate with UFOs driving around on it. Anyway, doing that netted me a hint that there was a ladder on the 5th floor of the East Building, so I got that, then picked up... 6 more bits I think? Which made me hit level 5, unlocking the ability to play around with the sound mixer control.
Apparently this was designed by the frontman of some band called Date of Birth so I guess it's sort of in line with MusicVR in that sense?
Mega Bomberman - So I guess the PCE original doesn't have the slowdown issues >:TTTT I mean I still like it, but knowing what's missing from the PCE version... Maybe I should just move on to Saturn Bomberman.
Dark Savior - Heading into the mines.
Phantasy Star 3 - Back in Aradia after getting Thea, heading off to Landen.
Kowloon's Gate - Didn't really get the opening story stuff so idk what's going on exactly, but basically I'm in Kowloon and I have a thing that lets me see, uh, feng shui? I needed to find a mirror shop owner for some reason, so I just kind of wandered around, talking to the citizens of Kowloon and trying to get information. Bought a jar of mercury. Found a kid hanging around the keymaker that told me that the mirror shop guy was in... something Garden, next to his dad's shrimp peeling shop. Go there. There's a guy hanging out near a gate asking for a replacement for the Seven Treasure Sword since the mirror shop guy took it with him. Go talk to the keymaker. He gives me an Eight Treasure Sword, which can't absorb spirits but already has three feng shui spirits inside that I can use. Sword in hand, I can no venture past the gate into the whatever garden.
It's worth noting that, up to this point, the game has been Myst like.
Going through the gate, I'm now in this real-time 3D dungeon crawler bit. There are toxic purple fields around the place. These indicate where like a feng shui demon is. When you get closer to it your screen starts going crazy and then you get into a fight. Monsters include things like robot sharks and a blob of fat with tubes coming out of it. Anyway they correspond to like one of five elements I guess and you need to shoot them with the counter-element in your sword. Presumably you need to absorb them to use against other feng shui demons later in the game.
Anyway, after purifying the whatever Garden of feng shui demons I found some keys and saved the mirror guy. He was locked up in some like mirror... suit.
Maybe I should've tried to get a copy with a manual instead of just the artbook :I
