Tenshi no Uta - Picked up Enya and got into Pangola? Pangora? tower, where I was able to rescue Kael's girlfried Claire and Jitt's wife Sera. Jitt promptly leaves. He had the thieves key on him so er >:T Overworld music changed after this and it's even better than the original overworld theme. Currently at Stonehenge, on the way to Enya's hometown of Penzance.

Tengai Makyou 2: Manjimaru - Got the flute that summons the boulder ship so I can go to the thicket castle and kill the plants that are eating all of the ninjas I guess.

Stardew Valley - It's really awkward when you can flirt with a character in a game that you share a name with that also has a dog that shares a name with one of your childhood dogs.

Final Fantasy IV - Up to Mt. Ordeals. Really enjoying this now for whatever reason? Only took me half my life to get into it so :S

Dragon Quest 1 - Got the Harp and the Flute. Really appreciating how open this is -- there's no plot gating or anything, and your limits on where you can go are just whatever information you have and your experience level (which has a really smooth curve in the GBC version).

Dragon Quest 5 - The translation in the DS version started annoying me so I checked out the PS2 version which, despite having kinda grody character models makes up for it with a *really* good orchestral soundtrack and better monsters than the DS version had. Except the translation's really... it doesn't read well and it has some obvious errors that result in lines not making sense. I mean I could just play it untranslated. I should probably just do that.

Dragon Quest 8 3DS - Conflicted on this. The quality of life improvements, especially with showing skill gain results, are incredibly nice, but the five second load times for battles are not, and the limited view distance in the field really hurts what was such a key part of the original experience.

Shin Megami Tensei 2 - So I got this and SMT1 back when Nocturne came out and played the other two a bunch but could never get past the coliseum in this one. I still maintain that the coliseum is not a good way to start the game but it's picked up a lot since then. Have some demons on hand now. Beat the Ice King. Heading off to the factory district now.

I think Hammy (my attic squirrel) is on the way out. He has gone from a full gait to some sort of lizard scamper over the last few days. I guess you can only live on spiders for so long. Probably doesn't help that it's been colder than a witch's teet the last few nights.
I feel bad for the little guy, but I'm not risking opening the attic door, and possibly having him escape into the living area of the house out of desperation. I helped an ex get some baby squirrels out of her house back in the day, and Christmas Vacation's depiction isn't too far off from how such an event can transpire.

GoW III - I think I'm getting closer to the end..? Just getting out of the Labyrinth, it seems. Helping Pandora get around.
This game does not hide it's attempt at bro appeal. A sex QTE? Shiiiit. The gore is awesome, though. Kratos don't give a fuck. I like that the puzzles are just tricky enough. I got close to looking a few up, but managed to get 'em all done on my own (so far).
For the record, I never finished the first GoW. Couldn't beat the last boss. ...Never played Part deux.

Been messing around with Titan Quest also. It feels like a mix of Diablo and the first Divinity, with which I'm down. I like that you can pick up and use enemy equipment.

Tried to start Risen 3, but the frame rate stutters like it's going out of style. Currently don't have the time or patience to figure out why (it is NOT my hardware, which runs the Valley benchmark at a smooth 60 fps in Ultra/HD mode). I remember when I tried to play Gothic 3 a few years ago, that it stuttered like crazy also...

double bump for an hour long conversation on what does and doesn't in fact constitute a sandwich.

Grand Kingdom is the most underrated SRPG I have ever played. I can't believe more people didn't flip out over this game.

I tried the demo and it was so aggressively confusing I gave up right away.  Are you saying I should give it another shot?  Grand Knights History was all OVER my radar years ago before the localization was scrapped and we never got to see it.

So I tried South Park Stick of Truth.

Should be noted, I never liked South Park.

That stated, I think this game is pretty hilarious. Funny thing about it is, I sort of appreciate the fact that I don't "get it" (all the shows references) so it comes across as abysmally random to me.

In other news....

What do you mean by markers? The little green dots that are plastered everywhere and are indistinguishable from one another?

Press X.
Select your current Titan.
Select the Landmark closest to your desired location.
Read the controls text on the bottom right hand corner of the screen (because the game does a piss poor job of actually explaining the map without making you hit up an informant; also in actually letting you navigate said map since it requires using a secondary set of controls to do it).
omg why

I didn't care much for the Hands of Time puzzles and had to use a certain website to solve them.

Still dicking around in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Got close to beating a dragon in the plains area, but ran out of potions and eventually, life.
