☆★★★★ Yeah it's the same game everyone had in Windows 98, just updated with some new music and sprites. All the levels are still the same, and just as hard as they used to be.

Sorry for the two month delay responding to this!

Man, my Steam library is one of the largest in my backlog. It's a shame my laptop can't seem to run games as well as it used to. I was even getting slowdown playing Terraria full screen on my computer :/ Eventually I will build my own PC and then I can begin to steam roll my Steam library.

Yeah I have no qualms with the battle system. It at least has more strategic depth than FF VII. I think the main issue I had with FF XIII is it's pacing.

The first 10 hours are mostly tutorial. The next 15-20 hours or so are in the open world portion of the game and the last 10 put you back on a linear track. I think if they let you back track to previous areas sooner and maybe peppered in some incentives to explore past areas, the game would have been better as a whole.

It's why I really enjoyed FF XV's pacing: it starts out open and then funnels into a more linear direction in the last few chapters. However, they let you back track to different points of the story, allowing you to wrap up side quests you didn't complete earlier. This prevents players from being punished for wanting to continue the story. I honestly would love to draft a video discussing FF XIII in depth sometime.

Well, I was almost resigned into playing it on Wii U until I decided to just buy the game on Switch (needed to make use of the Amazon discount.) It took me about 3 weeks after that to actually snag the console and it's pretty worth it so far. Although I love my Wii U, I imagine more of it's library will be ported to the Switch, so you wouldn't have missed much.

I'll probably get to CSH soon, there's a lot of stuff I want to get to these next few days (Dragon Quest Heroes II, Wonder Boy Returns, Yooka Laylee, Dragon's Trap, Shinness). It does look pretty amazing, though. Much better than I thought it would, honestly. I'm quite glad it turned out so well.

I actually really enjoyed Murdered Soul Suspect (it was my first PS4 platinum trophy), and it's really a shame the dev went under and a sequel isn't likely at all, I really enjoyed the feel of the game, even if some parts could have been ironed out a little better and it could have used a minimap instead of the online digital map thing.

I have yet to play it (Or Yooka Laylee), I want to ideally finished Tales of Beseria first...but whether I'll actually do that or just play Yooka Laylee/etc may change. But it has all positive reviews on Steam, so I'd guess it's pretty great.

Hi! Yeah, I'm trying Papers, Please for the first time and it's really great. A little depressing, but I guess that's kind of the point haha. Thanks for reaching out!

Thanks, haha. Despite those 4 years here, I've never really used Backloggery for anything besides tracking my games.

My cousin's PS4 is running low on space, but today the PS4 got external hard drive support finally (I got a 2TB external to add to my 4TB internal), so assuming he gets an external some time soon (or maybe I'll give him one of mine), we'll install stuff like Double Dragon IV, Mother Russia Bleeds, and Van Helsing, among other things. He only has a PS4 up there, and I usually bring my Retro Freak, but down here, the sky's the limit. I even recently got a PS VR and free CRT.

No, that's what it is. Apparently I've never heard it spoken from an official source before.

If you're tenacious enough, you can get through it maybe in a week or on a weekend. Like lots of roguelikes, you need to play a certain amount of each section to memorize enemy patterns and placement. It was really satisfying to beat, as the difficulty amps up a lot level to level. Now I'm stuck on Hard Mode as I still haven't figured out the rhythm of levels haha. They added quite a few newer enemies that chase you as you progress.

Honestly, the first time I tried to play XIII, I bought it Day 1 and put it down right when the game opens up for a bit. I was very underwhelmed. Then, I tried to play it again last year and went all the way to the end. I still don't like that the half the game is a tutorial but I eventually grew to enjoy XIII. The battle system is surprisingly more strategic than most variations of the ATB system, the music kicks ass and I think the game has really decent voice acting. I also liked that the linearity plays a huge role in the game's central themes. I think if XIII was structured more like XV, where the game starts out open, it would have been better received.

Which is why what you're saying about XIII-2 has me really optimistic. Crossing my fingers for some sort of big FF PS4 collection this year. Hopefully, I can clear my mountain of JRPGs so I can add XIII-2.

And totally empathize with you on Breath of the Wild. I've heavily been leaning towards getting it with a Switch but the lack of availability has been frustrating. If this continues to a ridiculous degree, I might break down and buy a Wii U copy.

Five people in my multiap with Breath of The Wild and a couple of real life friends with it as well, and me without being able to play it at all. Major bummer.

Aw thank you Lockdown! The art isn't mine unfortunately but the color choice is all me! Had a blast roughing it through Downwell a few months ago!

I see you're playing FF XIII-2. How are you liking the game?

Hooray! After well over a year, I finally have a new Nintendo Wii system to replace my lost one. Now I can finally get to work on getting the and on my Wii games again, although I'll have to start from scratch on a lot of them.

Although I don't know if I should work on re-purchasing the games I had on Virtual Console and WiiWare previously, or remove them from my list and go from scratch. Oh well, in any rate, it's a happy day!

Hey, thats a game worth replaying, I think. I don't remember anything about it except that every single enemy felt like a goddamn bullet sponge. What are your thoughts?

Host did some software installs the other day that caused a bit of downtime until the DNS propagated again to people. A bit weird that you're still seeing it on the front page, but it should resolve itself soon. Shows up fine for me and most others as far as I know. If you flush your DNS or clear your browser cache that would probably fix it for you. Or just wait a bit if it doesn't bother you.

Indeed, I feel you on that achievement thing. I feel like a lot of games are doing that now to promote longevity in their games. I praise the crap out of Terraria, but one of the achievements requires you to do 200 fishing quests. That was the last achievement I needed for a very long time. Frankly I don't mind though, it's not like Google Play is going to become the mobile Steam of sorts. Besides the level cap is far, far, far too low for something like that.
