1. Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix
2. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
3. Kirby: Planet Robobot
4. Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition
5. Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy
6. Timespinner
7. Devil May Cry 5
8. Pokťmon Alpha Sapphire

Feel pretty good about what I've played so far on the year!  Standouts so far are Timespinner and DMC5 (both of which I adored), and don't feel bad about any of these really.  I didn't love Kingdom Hearts (no surprises there), but I'm particularly glad I finally crossed that one off my list after giving up on my first playthrough 15+ years ago. 

Up next: I'm near the end of Super Mario World (having this unplayed is one of my greatest gaming shames), which I'm playing on a SNES Classic.  I'm also about 15-20 hours into Octopath Traveler (finished 8 Chapter 1's and 1 Chapter 2), about halfway through a replay of Ys: The Oath in Felghana, and BARELY started The Last Guardian.  Want to have all four of those done by the end of April.

I am 100% in agreement with myself from five months ago.  Although I didn't predict how much I ended up loving Monster Hunter World.

Dragon Quest XI. That game looks gorgeous and I adore Dragon Quest. Hopefully the worldwide release is on all three announced systems.

Octopath Traveler if that comes out in 2018. The demo was great and I really, REALLY liked the two Bravely games. Not sure if that working title should be changed or not, heh.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. If this counts as a JRPG then itís near the top of my list. I love the IGA-style Castlevania games; I miss having them around; and Bloodstained looks like one in all but name.

Thus far...

1. OFF
2. Chroma Squad
3. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
4. Batman: The Telltale Series
5. Monster Hunter World
6. Batman: The Enemy Within
7. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
8. The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
9. Professor Layton Vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
10. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
11. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
12. The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons
13. Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete

I have two gaming goals for the year.  First, beat at least 10 games on a list of 12 that I posted on my blog:

http://therealmonsoon.blogspot.com/2017/12/gaming-goals-of-2018.html (only 3 out of 12 done so far, yikes)

And second, beat at least 8 Zelda games.  Plan from the beginning was to replay the four Game Boy Color/Advance titles, then replay the A Link to the Past / A Link Between Worlds duo, then play 2 Zelda games that I hadn't played before (Breath of the Wild was the first of these).  I'm already 5 out of 8 on the Zelda quest, and the 8th will probably be Majora's Mask. 

I still think I can finish these two goals lists, but I've already been hamstrung by Monster Hunter World (which dominated my February and March), and playing Super Mario RPG and Lunar 1 and 2 for the podcast.  So yeah that's what I've been up to.

This is either a remake or a sequel of a game from 3 years ago.  RPGFan covered it

It's a little weird that PQube is publishing it, since they're based in the UK and this game is banned in that region.

I've thrown about 160 hours or so into it.  I'm not interested in doing tempered hunts, but I've beaten the story and I'm having fun making HR armor sets.  Hunted a few Deviljho this weekend.

The awards feature was released in 3 parts from January 23rd through 25th. They wouldíve been on the sidebar for about a week following the 23rd.

And the discussion in Discord wasnít terribly lengthy or even organized into its own channel. It was easy to miss. I saw the most discussion of the awards on the Facebook page. I donít think anyone made a forum post about them, which is a little unusual.

HTC Vive - probably the most well-reviewed virtual reality headset. It typically costs about $600 for the base version. They recently announced a new model as well.

 I didnít think this was possible, but there are even more farts  in this one than in the original.

Breath of Fire IV won the poll, and will have two episodes on the podcast later this year. Thanks everyone for listening and voting!
